* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'': Wismerhill goes through two different and very elaborate ones, first when he becomes a high priest of the Black Moon by crawling through a cave system to undergo several trials, and second when he becomes the leader of the Lords of Negation, Haazheel Thorn's most elite soldiers. Both instances involve him dying and being resurrected as well.

* The Rite of the Covenant in ''Anime/LastExile'' is pretty [[MindRape mind-raping]] -- just ask Dio.

* The Rite of the Covenant in ''Anime/LastExile'' is pretty [[MindRape mind-raping]] -- just ask Dio.mentioned without detail throughout the series, until it shown happening to Dio, who, though a bit creepy at first, has become quite endeared to the audience by this point. The rite is essentially MindRape.

* In ''Anime/{{K}}'', which features a system of seven SuperEmpowering Kings and their Clans of followers, we are shown several of the clans' initiations.
** The Red Clan's initiation involves the Red King engulfing his hand in fire, and the prospective member shaking his hand. If you don't get burnt, you're in. No guarantees of safety, or survival, for that matter.
** The Blue Clan's initiation takes the form of a {{Knighting}}, with the new member kneeling before the Blue King in front of all of the troops, swearing an oath, and having the King tap them on either shoulder with the sword that will be theirs as a "Guardian of Blue Justice". When the Blue King gives them the sword, they receive their Blue aura and powers with it.
** The Green Clan is rather peculiar - one doesn't need to be a real Clansman to get their powers, they just need to download the Jungle game/social network app to their phones. By completing missions, they gain points and move up ranks, named after the letters of JUNGLE - E-rank, then L-rank, etc. to the highest, J-rank. Only J-rank members get to meet the King and become true Clansmen.
** The Gold and Grey Clans are shown to be rather formal, but their initiations are not shown. The Silver and Colorless clans are small and rather informal (as much as [[spoiler: Kuroh]] would rather have had a more formal way of dedicating himself to the Silver King).

* In Creator/TamoraPierce's ''Tortall'' books, aspiring knights (usually teenagers) and kings have to spend a night in the [[TortureCellar Chamber of the Ordeal]], which is a room inhabited by some kind of godlike spirit that [[MindRape gives you very realistic halluciations of your worst fears]]. As one character describes it, it's "like a cutter of gemstones. It finds your flaws and hammers them." With people who aren't ready for hardcore introspection, it can permanently damage or kill them. In one special case, a guy who likes to beat and rape women is forced to feel the physical effects of every assault he ever committed. Our main characters see more typical things, like their loved ones being slaughtered because they're too incompetent to protect them. Oh, and ''they're also not allowed to scream or make any sound at all.''

* In the novel ''Stinger'', by Robert R. McCammon, a group of boys initiate the only girl into their circle by chewing tobacco and spitting it into a cup. She drinks it.
* In ''Literature/AkataWitch'', the ceremony for becoming a Leopard (a person with magical powers) is extremely painful. It also crosses over with the "Humiliating" cateory.
