* [[spoiler:Lars Halford]] is killed by Lord Doviculus this way in ''BrutalLegend''.
* ''SilentHill2'': One of Pyramid Head's preferred methods of execution. Ironically, the final time you encounter him, when you [[DualBoss fight two Pyramid Heads]], they eventually [[HoistByHisOwnPetard kill each other by impaling each other with their spears]]. (Assuming you avoid their attacks long enough.)
* ''SilentHill3'': The Closers frequently kill Heather by impaling her with their arm spikes. If Heather's health is low, they will lift her up bodily, position their spike in between Heather's legs and impale her in the crotch, killing her.

* The third case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' had this happen to the victim. It turned out that [[spoiler:he was actually pushed onto a spiked fence. Plus, he himself killed someone that way five years before then]].
** Let's not forget in the last case of ''Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney'' which has [[spoiler:Jake Marshall's brother Neil killed by Damon Gant on his suit of armour's sword.]] Trying to frame [[spoiler:Ema Skye]] was just mean...
** And in the final case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations'', the victim is found skewered on a large ceremonial sword held by a gold statue, and the scene puts extra emphasis on the shock value. In fact, later in the case, [[spoiler:we learn the scene is fake, and it is mentioned that Iris purposely made the fake crime scene so shocking so it would confuse the investigators]].

* Saruman dies in the extended version of the third ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Lord of the Rings]]'' by getting stabbed, falling off the tower of Isengard and onto a spiky wheel of a machine. For bonus symbolism points, the wheel then shifts because of his weight and turns until Saruman is on the bottom, hidden beneath the pool of water.

* Peter Jackson seems to have a fondness for this trope. Saruman dies in the extended version of the third ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Lord of the Rings]]'' by getting stabbed, falling off the tower of Isengard and onto a spiky wheel of a machine. For bonus symbolism points, the wheel then shifts because of his weight and turns until Saruman is on the bottom, hidden beneath the pool of water.

** One nameless extra at the Battle of Helm's Deep gets hit with a projectile that's normally used to propel ladders. When it hits a squishy human (with no plot armour) this trope ensues.

When someone [[HoYay just needs to]] be [[FreudWasRight run through with a big rod]]. Bigger is better in [[FoeYay bad]]. The defining element is the shock value of the impalement. Imaginative impalements qualify. Death by bladed weapon ({{knife|Nut}}, [[KatanasAreJustBetter sword]], [[SwordFight foil]], {{l|aserBlade}}ightsaber, [[OffWithHisHead beheading]]) generally does not qualify (unless the victim is stabbed through the face or something). Garden-variety vampire stakings, à la ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', don't count, but extraordinary stakings do count. Often appears with {{Anvilicious}} symbolism with a side dish of [[FreudWasRight Freudianism]].

* Best way to use the rapier; granted, it's capable of shallow cuts, but the sword's design makes it such that it's more effective at stabbing opponents.
** The estoc was the {{BFS}} answer to this, having duller edges than a normal longsword, but a sharper tip. Makes sense, considering it was intended for going under armor.
** Half-swording provides a new moveset to the swordsman for fighting armored opponents. While half-swording, you could use one hand on your blade to guide your thrust into chinks in the armor. Alternatively, if you like it simpler, just put both hands on the blade to turn the sword into an improvised hammer, and attack him with the infamous mordhau.

* Similarly, in ''Film/DraculaUntold'', this was Vlad's calling card during his time as a janissary in the Turkish army, to the extent that he earned the name [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast 'Lord Impaler']]. Having forsworn it by the time the film begins, he [[spoiler: nevertheless falls back into it, impaling first an Ottoman emissary, and then later ''an entire Ottoman regiment''.]]

** In a flashback, this is how a certain character died: [[spoiler:Aguri, who was in the middle of giving a rampaging soon-to-become-Koro-sensei a CooldownHug when she was fatally pierced by a tentacle mine. Koro-sensei blamed himself greatly for letting it happen]].
** In the present story, this happens to [[spoiler:Kayano, who was pierced to death by the second Reaper's tentacles. This time however, Koro-sensei managed to ''save her by way of reattaching all of Kayano's blood and cells to her body'', with insane speed and precision he developed precisely in the event that a situation like this happened again.]]

* Not done to a villain per se, but in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', BigBad Sephiroth impales a giant serpent on a tree. Too bad we don't get to see him do it; when the heroes find it, it is the SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome that firmly established Sephiroth's {{Badass}} status.
