* In ''Series/{{Sharpe}}'s Rifles'', being charged by a mounted French Trooper and not having time to load his rifle properly, Harper opts to discharge his ramrod along with the ball. The ramrod goes straight through the Trooper's throat at exactly the Adam's Apple. It is rather disturbing to watch.

* ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' takes this trope and turns it UpToEleven. One of Liu Kang's [[FinishingMove Fatalities]] has him punch through the opponents neck to pysically ''rip their throat out''. And [[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill to add the cherry on top]] punches the ripped trachea inside the opponent's mouth. Yikes.

* The "Faster" enemies in ''VideoGame/CryOfFear'' are young women with their forearms and shins replaced by metallic spikes. They normally use these to stab and slash at you, but their death animation has them impale their own throats with the forearm spikes before keeling over.

* In ''Manga/BlackLagoon'', [[spoiler:Yukio Washimine]] [[{{Seppuku}} kills herself by piercing her own neck with a katana]] while Rock watches helplessly and Revy screams at him to not look at her. This is TruthInTelevision, incidentally: This was the 'proper' way for a {{Samurai}} woman to commit suicide in feudal Japan because it was less painful and it looked more dignified than the male version (disemboweling yourself) though in reality it was usually done with a dagger instead of a full katana. And since [[spoiler: Yukio]] is [[spoiler: a {{deconstruction}} of YamatoNadeshiko]], she preferred to die rather than facing [[spoiler: Balalaika]] in total dishonor.

* On one episode of ''Series/{{CSI}}'', it happens with a crossbow bolt. Unbeknownst to his attempted murderer, the man was having a severe allergic reaction at the time and they managed to shoot it just right to save his life...or, rather to extend it by a few minutes since [[RasputinianDeath he died a few minutes later of something else, unrelated.]]
