After capturing the hero, the {{villain|s}} will threaten him with ColdBloodedTorture unless he reveals where he's hidden the MacGuffin, etc. Being a good hero, he dares him to do his worst. [[MadeOfIron Not only can he take it]], but will do so [[TooKinkyToTorture with a smile!]] The villain will then calmly rotate the chair they're strapped into and show them a friend or loved one in deep trouble instead. OhCrap...

The villain is TemptingFate by attempting this form of torture with {{Determinator}}s, {{Plucky Girl}}s and {{badass}} {{antihero}}es, [[ItsPersonal as the consequences]] will ''not'' [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown be pretty]] if they [[HeroicResolve do not succeed]] in breaking them. Especially if the hero manages to [[HeroicWillpower bust loose]] [[ConvenientlyPlacedSharpThing from their imprisonment]] -- in which case the villain is going to be facing torture and/or [[KarmicDeath death]] soon enough.

** At some point Malik not only brainwashed Jounouchi to force him into a DuelToTheDeath with Yugi and the Spirit of the Puzzle, but holds Anzu hostage in another DeathTrap that will be activated if anyone else intervenes. So several characters (Kaiba, Mokuba, Mai, Honda and [[spoiler: Shizuka]] [so to say, [[spoiler: she has bandages over her eyes]]]) are forced to stand there and not be able to help Yugi (who ''did'' tell the Spirit to [[ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself let him save Jounouchi on his own) in any ways.
** Later, the anime states that [[spoiler: the ''real'' Malik Ishtar's soul is dormant [[SplitPersonalityTakeover within Dark Malik]], and now he's forced to see how his SuperpoweredEvilSide wrecks havoc. He has to [[GrandTheftMe borrow Anzu's body]] for a short while to talk to his sister Ishizu and tell her what's going on.]]

No matter how horrific - or embarrassing - the memory is, once you've activated the orb, you're forced to watch (and feel, and smell, and taste) it all.
