** The "Cadeira do Dragão" (Dragon's Chair) was an electric chair used as a torture device and part of the plethora of torture devices used by the Brazilian military dictatorship in the 60s-70s.
** The ''picana'', described in the ''Burn Notice'' example above, was an electric cattle prod that Argentine torturers used on their victims during the Dirty War (1976-1983). Oftentimes, people were raped with the picana.

* ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}'': Asuka's punishment for Shinji, in the incredibly unlikely circumstance that he cheats on her, "involves electricity and [[GroinAttack testicles]]".



* ''Literature/AmericanPsycho'': Patrick Bateman kills a woman this way.



* While outright torture isn't, itself, the focus of the ''Night Terrors'' episode "The Man in the Chair" -- a DarkerProjects audio production -- when it becomes clear that the eponymous man can be given an electric shock any time his captors don't like the way the conversation is going, it also becomes clear that it's not going to end well for the poor guy.

* Sith Lords ''love'' to do this to their victims in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' universe. ExpandedUniverse information on how the Force works turns this into a subversion; it's not actual electricity, per se, more like a visual manifestation that symbolizes using TheDarkSide to [[ThePowerOfHate inflict terrible pain on someone you feel extreme hate for]].

This trope appears to be weakening in recent years after the appearance of "[[TorturePorn torture horror]]" films such as the ''Film/{{Hostel}}'' series breaking into the mainstream, though this genre began back in the 1970s with films like ''Mark of the Devil'' and ''Salo Or The 120 Days Of Sodom''.
