* In the ''TabletopGame/{{Eberron}}'' setting of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', members of Dragonmarked Houses who commit a terrible crime against the House would be expelled from membership. This was known as "excoriation," after the (mostly) discontinued practice of having the shamed member's Dragonmark flayed from the skin. If the excoriate survived, the Mark would grow back elsewhere, but would be very painful to use.
** Monks dedicated to the Mockery would flay ''themselves'' as a ritual.
* In the ''TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}'' setting of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', this is often the fate of those who run afoul of Sigil's de facto ruler, the mysterious Lady of Pain.
** Although to be fair to her, this is not a method of torture, but of execution: Anyone whom the Lady's shadow falls on dies quite instantaneously (if painfully).

* The apostle Bartholomew is said to have been flayed alive by an Armenian prince after the latter's brother, the king, converted to Christianity; and indeed, he is often represented in art as [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/cf/Last_judgement.jpg holding his own flayed skin]]. This is why "St. Bartholomew's" is a common name for hospitals; due to the method of his death, he's considered the patron saint of surgery.
