* Pretty much anything that might be considered offensive to the [[BlueAndOrangeMorality devils]] ofrom ''Manga/{{Dorohedoro}}''. Whether it's selling devil shaped candy, spraying graffiti an a devil statue or even just plain impoliteness, the devils are very eager to introduce people to their [[DisproportionateRetribution death sentence]].

* In an early episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', the crew visits a pleasantly peaceful colony called Edo. While playing ball with the local kids, Wesley accidentally breaks a cheap gardening implement and discovers why the colony is so peaceful: every day a new area is randomly and secretly selected as a "punishment zone" and within it, all crime is punishable by death. The idea being that no one commits crime anywhere, just in case they're unknowingly in the punishment zone.[[ContrivedCoincidence Of course that's exactly where Wesley is when he has his accident]]. And since his accident is treated as vandalism, the crew then has to negotiate their way out of having Wesley be put to death for tripping over.

* In ''Series/{{Psych}}'', there is [[NoodleIncident mention of]] a program meant to replace cops with {{robots}}. Apparently it didn't work out, as a robot ended up [[AIIsACrapshoot strangling]] [[LawfulStupid a jaywalker.]] This may just be a reference to ''Franchise/RoboCop''.

* TheScourgeOfGod: Where the author uses a monster to inflict [[CruelAndUnusualDeath brutal punishments]] for incredibly minor vices such as [[DrugsAreBad marijuana use]], being a bit obnoxious, or even just being "promiscuous" (especially [[DoubleStandard a promiscuous female]]).

Added DiffLines:

* In the Website/GoAnimate "Grounded" videos, just about ''anything'' can result in someone getting grounded, arrested, or worse. Even just calling someone a rude name, getting a math problem wrong, littering, or pulling a prank on a sibling can, and very much has, resulted in [[DisproportionateRetribution absurdly long]] [[YouAreGrounded grounding times]] or [[HumiliationConga Humiliation Congas]] in the form of (sometimes fatal) "Punishment Days".
