* Played with in the ''SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Knight Time". Supes, posing as Batman, initially tries to get information from the Penguin with a straightforward plea that a man's life is at stake. The Penguin isn't impressed. Robin then whispers a suggestion to kick over Penguin's desk. After Superman does that (hard enough to send it flying into the wall) and puts a more ominous tone into his Bat-voice impression, Penguin immediately cracks.

Added DiffLines:
* In ''Literature/TheCrownerJohnMysteries'', extracting confessions by torture is allowed by the law and the Sheriff never hesitates to use it (at least against those who do not have powerful connections). John himself believes that torture if barbaric and that a confession obtained through torture holds no veracity. However, he is not above allow his assistant Gwyn extract information through physical force (such as thrusting a squire's head into a frozen horse trough) if he thinks the situation warrants it.

* Vic Mackey from ''TheShield'', a lot. He beats a suspect with a phone book in the pilot episode to reveal to location of a kidnapped girl and does similar things throughout the show's run, including threatening to drop off a gang member in rival territory (a ticket to the emergency room at minimum) and beating another to death with a length of chain for [[spoiler:killing Lem. The kicker? Shane, the actual killer, was there and trying to convince him to stop.]]

Compare: TortureFirstAskQuestionsLater, and TortureForFunAndInformation, when you're not just torturing someone for information, but having a ''lot'' of fun doing it, too. Also see HighAltitudeInterrogation, where the interrogator just threatens to drop someone from a great height.
