* David Haubenstock, the son of the German actress Romy Schneider, [[https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1346&dat=19810707&id=kaZOAAAAIBAJ&sjid=NPsDAAAAIBAJ&pg=3751,2423442&hl=es died at age 14 while attempting to climb the spiked fence at his stepfather's parents' home.]] The poor kid slipped, fell on the sharp points of the grill, and as a result had both his intestines and his femoral artery pierced, dying the same day.

* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', the monstrous arachnid Khamul is impaled by a spike after a lengthy battle against the Alliance's strike team in Myridia.
* Too many to list in ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends''.
* A number of characters in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' die by being impaled in all three versions, but the one that fits this trope best (mostly in the "dispatching of a BigBad" way) occurs at the end of v1 where [[spoiler:Adam Dodd uses a katana to pin Cody Jenson to a tree, and then uses a knife to carve the word "Rapist" into his chest as he bleeds to death. Cody dies before Adam finishes carving, but he doesn't care.]]
* The canonical WhateleyUniverse example: A student with the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast revealing codename]] 'Bloodwolf' decides to pick on the wrong little girl and ends up nailed to a tree by multiple railroad spikes. [[spoiler:He lives -- regeneration is your friend --, but he hasn't tried ''that'' again since.]]
** The same little girl gets stabbed through the heart with an ''athame'' much later and also [[spoiler:survives through regeneration.]] Karmic retribution?
* In [[Machinima/RedVsBlue Red vs. Blue: Revelation]], [[spoiler:Agent Texas]] is stabbed through the face with a two foot-long spike by [[TheJuggernaut the Meta]]
* In the ''WebAnimation/{{Xombie}}'' flash series, the fight with the zombie velociraptor ended with it impaled on the ribcage of a fallen dinosaur skeleton. Being a zombie, it was little more than an inconvenience, but it was enough to keep it in place [[FaceHeelTurn long enough for its owner to arrive and befriend the heroes.]]
* [[spoiler:Penny, the designated love interest,]] is impaled and killed by a shard of the [[spoiler:exploded Deathray gun]] near the end of ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog''.
* Some stories in TheSlenderManMythos have said titular, [[TheBlank faceless]] HumanoidAbomination doing this to its victims, with tree branches.
* Faust receives this fate in ''WebVideo/VaguelyRecallingJoJo'' because Empress somehow managed to get a hold of his scalpel. He manages to survive and the scalpel is still in his head when he rescues the injured Kakyoin.
* In WebAnimation/DickFiguresTheMovie, Lord Takagami uses his sword to do this to Col. Dingleberry. Neptune also uses his trident to do this to Trollzor.
* In ''Literature/TheSalvationWar'' this is the end of [[spoiler:Uriel (in the spire of a cathedral, no less, after being [[FrickinLaserBeams lasered by several YAL-1s]])]]
* ''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.

* [[ValkyrieProfile Lenneth's]] FinishingMove. Three spears stab her enemy and hold it in the air, while she summons an additional stupidly huge fourth spear that ''turns into a fricken dragon'' before she throws it. [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Tsubaki's]] finisher is a ShoutOut to this.
