* A photo of the execution of Yugoslav (Croatian) partisan [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stjepan_Filipovi%C4%87 Stjepan Filipovic]] became one of the iconic photos of World War II in Yugoslavia. It is particularly interesting because it combines a Christ-like pose with the communist "clenched fist" salute.

* A photograph taken by a war correspondent in Central America during TheEighties of a wounded man carried by his compatriots had this look, especially as the wounded man had a beard like those used in pictures of JesusChrist.

* At one point in the ''ChronoCrusade'' anime, Chrono charges at the BigBad but an explosion sends him flying backwards, in slow motion, with his arms outspread. When he lands on the ground, he's buried under rubble from the building he was in--including a steel, cross-shaped beam marking the spot where he's buried.

* Used many times in the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'', which makes sense considering that Creator/EijiTsuburaya was [[JapaneseChristian a devout Catholic]]. [[MemeticHandGesture The iconic Specium Ray pose]] was even made to look like a Christian Cross!

** In ''Series/ReturnOfUltraman'', Ultraman Jack is chained in a similar fashion to Ultraseven by Alien Nackle to be taken away from Earth for execution.

* One picture in the [[{{Bionicle}} Mata Nui Saga]] shows the titular robot floating through space in such a pose, while gathering information from the nearby planets' cultures. We have to assume he uses his outstretched arms for "sucking up" the info.

** There's a red band of paint too, so double the cross imagery.

* The Robert E. Howard story, "Literature/AWitchShallBeBorn", had Literature/ConanTheBarbarian crucified on an actual cross by Constantius, the villain's [[TheDragon Dragon]]. He gets better, and at the story, he returns the favor to Constantius, whom he states is far better at inflicting pain than enduring it like Conan can.
