In fiction, just about everyone is [[PrimalFear afraid of heights]] so when the hardass cop or AntiHero finally corners one of the BigBad's friends from his FiveBadBand who refuses to spill the beans about his boss's EvilPlan on a very high balcony, at the top of a cliff, [[RuleOfThree in a helicopter]], or anywhere else that's high off the ground, that hapless {{mook|s}} is guaranteed to be dangled over the edge by our protagonist in an attempt to loosen his lips. With his life ''literally'' hanging in the balance, the mook finds himself in a position where he is forced to tell the badass hero whatever he wants to know or be dropped to his death.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'':
** The Hugo Strange promotional trailer shows Batman interrogating a {{Mook|s}} in such a manner as this, with Batman demanding to know who sent him and the mook promptly answering, "Hugo Strange."
** In game, Batman can do this while interrogating Riddler's henchmen, provided that the player performs the interrogation command close enough to a ledge.
** This is also Batman's chosen method for questioning [[spoiler:Quincy Sharp]] during a cutscene.
* Done again early on in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkamOrigins''. We get to see it from the mook's perspective as he wakes up while being dangled off a building.

* ''Literature/TheExecutioner''. In "Tiger War", Mack Bolan does the helicopter version, but [[EnhancedInterrogationTechniques also uses the prisoner's religious beliefs]], pointing out that when his body hits the ground from that height, it will break apart and be eaten by various animals, meaning his spirit will be divided and so never find rest.

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} did this in the ''Crucible Academy'' story arc. After being abducted and taken to a weird, unknown place, she grabs the neck of one of her kidnappers and hovers over an abyss, demanding answers while reminding him that "It looks like a '''long way down'''."
