* In ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'', Black Mage does this to his teammates on a fairly regular basis - i.e., whenever they really piss him off. They're all fine in the end, though.

* Subverted by RebelliousPrincess [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philomena Saint Philomena of Mugnano]]. Her ([[YouFailhistoryForever almost surely false]]) myth says that she ''was'' to be executed just like Sebastian (after [[ATasteOfTheLash flogging her to almost death]] and [[KillItWithWater tossing her into a river]] didn't work), but God used His Powers to save her [[RuleOfThree by the third time]] and [[KarmicDeath shoot the arrows back to the archers, killing several of them.]] So Philomena "had" to [[OffWithHisHead be decapitated]] instead.

** Archer is seen to have died this way in a flashback [[note]]although Ufotable's ''[[Anime/FateStayNightUnlimitedBladeWorks Unlimited Blade Works]]'' adaptation uses the version found in ''VideoGame/FateExtra'' instead, wherein he was executed by hanging[[/note]]. Then it happens in-game thanks to Gilgamesh, but this time ''[[NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow he sticks around for a day after.]]''

* [[Myth/StEdmundOfEastAnglia King Edmund "the Martyr" of East Anglia]] supposedly was killed by Viking invaders in this way in 869 AD, when his captors tied him to a tree and riddled him with arrows.

* Literature/{{Discworld}}: the first death of soon-to-be Zombie Reg Shoe, when the thwarted revolutionary is stuck with eight arrows but can still shout defiance at his attackers before dying. He soon recovers from this, and as a zombie proves it's impossible to kill him twice. In ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}'' he confounds the Klatchians by blithely fighting on even after losing an arm, devising a new form of unarmed combat by using his severed limb as a club to hit people with. As a policeman, he concludes arrests with arrows sticking out of him, often while complaining about the holes in his armour and uniform that he will have to make good himself.

Added DiffLines:

**Earlier, Naruto himself was impaled by dozens of needles by Haku. What's notable about this is that, unlike when the same thing happened to him and Sasuke earlier in the fight, his regeneration was kicked into overdrive and LAUNCHED the needles right back out.
