* In AmericanMcGeesAlice, Alice will enter a lab where the March Hare and the Dormouse are undergoing medical torture. The March Hare is being alternately electrocuted and Dunked in a dunk tank, while the Dormouse has a constant electric current running through him as he is operated on. There's not a damn thing you can do for them.

* Ayeka subjects Ryoko to some form of ElectricTorture in the second episode of the ''TenchiMuyo'' OVA after she is captured while being hung upside down, but it only tickles her and seems to have no effect. This changes when Ayeka jabs her with the hilt of Tenchi's sword and causes a much more painful electric reaction (although it can be assumed that it is much more than electricity doing the damage) due to Ryoko being unable to touch the sword.

* The book ''[[Literature/NineteenEightyFour 1984]]'' had such a device used on the protagonist, though it was not even close to [[{{Room101}} the worst torture he was subjected to]].
* In ''[[IncarnationsOfImmortality On A Pale Horse]]'', the hero's girlfriend Luna is tortured by being stripped to her waist, and [[BreastAttack her nipples being touched by active electrodes]]. Her captors even start out with just giving a mild shock to her breasts to show what is in store for her. She refuses, so they give her more intense shocks.

* In ''TheRegenerationTrilogy'', [[ShellShockedVeteran soldiers with PTSD symptoms]] are subject to electroshock therapy. Although it's called psychotherapy, it's described as no less cruel than torture, since Yealland essentially shocks them until he gets the reaction he wants--going as far as shocking a man's face to make him stop smiling.

* In JohnVarley’s ''Red Lightning'' the narrator gets wordlessly threatened with this. He wakes up bound to a chair and with his scrotum connected to a box with a dial and that is plugged into an ordinary wall outlet. The device is never switched on.
