* Sort of averted in Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire books, where being tied up or chained up can be extremely painful, but also sort of played straight, since a couple of characters survive being restrained in ways (like being strung up dangling by their wrists for extended periods of time) that would probably kill them or at least permanently disable them in real life.

* ''Literature/NickVelvet'': Nick does this after he released from being [[ChainedToABed handcuffed to a bed]] in "The Theft of Nick Velvet".



* ''{{Friends}}'': Simultaneously subverted and lampshaded. Chandler's been handcuffed to a chair. Upon being released he does this. Rachel asks if it hurts. He responds that it doesn't, but people always do it in the movies.

** In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'': "Grudge Match" Black Canary rubs her wrists after being released. It should be noted her wrists were badly burned and she had been ''wearing the cuffs over them''. Ouch.

* TheStainlessSteelRat once had cuffs applied extremely tightly by a sadistic cop. He escaped, but had a job removing them before complete numbness set in. There is a certain FridgeHorror in the description of his risking serious injury, possibly even involuntary amputation, from a power saw he wedges tightly in a desk draw, hoping it won't slip as he cuts the steel...
