* ''[[FanFiction/BoundDestiniesTrilogy Wisdom and Courage]]'': In yet another KickTheDog moment during the climax, [[BigBad Veran]] makes Link watch as she, in this order, stabs Zelda in the gut, [[TraumaticHaircut chops her hair off]], and strangles her in order to [[DespairEventHorizon break]] his HeroicSpirit. It initially works, but as it turns out, Zelda is OnlyMostlyDead, and Navi sacrifices herself to heal her and bring Link back to his senses.

* A rather chilling example in ''Film/StrangeDays'': a rapist blindfolds his victim, then hooks her up to the memory-recording device he's using at that moment... forcing her to experience her own rape and subsequent murder as though she were in his body. So not only is it happening to her, she's forced to get off on it the way he is.

* In the book of ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'', things play out differently from the film. The witch does this because she can't physically harm Dorothy thanks to the protective charms of the slippers and the North Witch's [[ProtectiveCharm protection spell]]. Didn't stop the WitchWithACapitalB from trying to get Dorothy's cooperation by torturing the Lion, threatening Toto, and leaving Nick (the Tin Man) and Scarecrow as ruined heaps at the bottom of a nearby ravine. Baum had his moments...

* A common trope used during the Attitude Ere, particularly in the feud pitting Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin and Wrestling/VinceMcMahon. One example is Austin showing -- via the Titan Tron -- that he had earlier poured tons of concrete in [=McMahon=]'s new Chevrolet Corvette!!!!

* One ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' monster is the Vaath, a horrible amalgam of insect and lizard from the Lower Planes. It hunts by injecting its victims with a paralyzing poison, then inserting a feeding tendril into its victim's body to consume choice organs. Not only is the Vaath sadistic enough to make sure its victims live just long to watch it consume their intestines, it's also telepathic, so everyone around it - including the person being eaten - gets to experience not just the Vaath's enjoyment of the meal, but the exact flavor and texture of the person's innards.

** When Queen Cersei captures Ellaria Sand and her daughter Tyene, the women who poisoned her daughter, she gives Tyene a KissOfDeath with the [[KarmicDeath same poisoned lipstick]], then tells her mother that she'll be left chained to the wall (force-fed if necessary) so she can watch her daughter die, then decompose.
