* While recording the song "Living for the City", Music/StevieWonder's recording partners deliberately interfered with and criticized his performance, in order to get a raw sound out of him. In the end, Wonder's voice was so angry and hoarse that he got the result they were looking for.

* "Manga/SkipBeat: Kyoko does this when she gets into her character for Dark Moon. Everyone's shock is real because they didn't know how Kyoko would present her character. It was so unexpected and shocking that Director Ogata falls to his knees.

* In {{Prince}}'s music video "Kiss", the face Wendy Melvoin makes when the singer literally gets in her face is genuine. She was simply expecting to play the guitar on a stool while Prince danced around her.

* The earliest ''{{Peanuts}}'' specials were done this way - since Charles Schulz and Bill Melendez insisted on real child voice actors, some of whom couldn't yet read, dialogue was fed to the kids line-by-line or sometimes ''word-by-word'', and the lines we hear are often spliced together from the kids reciting the words or lines back. Arguably the best example is Sally's confused speech ("All I want is what I...have coming to me! All I want is my fair share!") in ''ACharlieBrownChristmas''. This unique "sound" quickly became such an expected element of the specials that it continued to be followed, even when mixing software and better techniques could have smoothed things over a bit.

* The opening-night production of ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'' in ''SlingsAndArrows'' includes an InUniverse version; ''SlingsAndArrows'' is a story about a theater company, and director Geoffrey Tennant is not above manipulating his performers to get results. In order to get the performance he wants out of his recalcitrant Macbeth, Geoffrey changes all the blocking at the last minute, inserts a small tree at a strategic location, and gives secret instructions to Macbeth's opponents in fight scenes.

* When WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic is getting beaten in ''Film/TheWickerMan'' review, according to Doug he really was getting {{groin attack}}ed with minimal protection. You can tell by the way his legs twitch any time he gets a hit.

* In ''BreakoutKings'', Ray forces this upon Lloyd when he enacts a plan that involves [[spoiler:letting their captive crook swipe his keys and his (unloaded) gun so that she'll take them straight to her partner as hostages]]. Needless to say, Lloyd is less than thrilled.

* On ''MyNameIsEarl'', Liberty pays her next-door neighbor to be the {{Heel}} in her wrestling matches. Joy stuffs the neighbor into the trunk of her car, puts on the costume, and proceeds to try and sabotage Liberty's performance. (It ended up making her performance better, as well as helping both women air their grievances towards one another.)

* A bit of unintentional Enforced Method Acting appears on the original Broadway soundtrack of ''Theatre/{{Gypsy}}.'' In the song "Some People," the actor who plays Rose's father has a small line--"You're not gettin' eighty-eighty ''cents'' out of me, Rose." Unfortunately, on the day of recording, the actor failed to show up to do the line, so Stephen Sondheim himself ended up recording it--and he was so pissed off at the actor for not being there that the anger came across as genuine, prompting a similarly angry response from Ethel Merman.
