* ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' is fond of this Trope, mostly for Stage Fatalities. The first game had The Pit, an arena where the winner could uppercut his opponent, causing him or her to plummet into the spike-filled room below. The second game had The Armory, where the correct combination could let the player knock his/her opponent into the spikes on the ''ceiling''. In fact, it seems every game had at least one death-by-impalement stage, and a few characters even did it themselves with their own Fatalities:

** There's even one Deathtrap, the Falling Cliffs, where it's possible for both players to be taken out by the trap and impaled at same time due to the setup. (If this happens, whoever had taken the least amount of damage before it happened wins the round, or Player 1, if both had Life Bars at 100%.)

* ''WebAnimation/MysterySkullsAnimated'': Lewis was killed while exploring a cave by being pushed from a cliff and being impaled through his chest by falling on a stalagmite. The suddenness and violence of this kind of death is often interpreted by the fandom as part of the reason he came back as [[OurGhostsAreDifferent a vengeful wraith]] out for revenge on his killer.

* In ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'', the last remaining [[spoiler:[[{{Robeast}} MP-Eva]]]] manages to kill [[spoiler:Asuka]] when it impales [[spoiler:[[HumongousMecha Unit-02]]]] with its lance.
-->Reaching out with its remaining arm, Unit 02 tried to drag itself forward still, but the Lance impaling its guts had embedded in the ground. Unit 02 was pinned like a butterfly, and no amount of struggling was going to get it any further.
