* Parodied in ''Max's Big Bust'': the title character's captain uses a [[NoodleImplement disco ball]] as an interrogation tool. This is 100% successful in terrifying perpetrators into talking, and Max and [[GenderBender her]] fellow police officers are rather frightened by it as well.

** Dolores Umbridge from ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix''. Particularly disturbing about this example is the light-hearted calmness with which she conducts these interrogations, to say nothing of the fact that they are, by definition, practiced on ''children''. And yet, the authorities don't punish her for ''anything'' until she collaborates with Voldemort.
** Also, in the seventh book, the hired-by-Voldemort [[SadistTeacher teachers]] have sanction to use torture on the students. In the same book, after it became apparent that one of the items that Mundungus Fletcher stole and sold from the Black residence was Slytherin's Locket, Harry had Dobby and Kreatcher (the latter of whom was now more than willing to listen to Harry Potter after he explained to Harry Potter about Regulus' HeroicSacrifice to retrieve the locket) abduct Mundungus Fletcher and later interrogated him pretty brutally to get the name of the person whom he sold the locket to (or at least a physical profile). They later ended up scalding him after his description of the person he sold it to matched that of Dolores Umbridge, although that was more by accident due to shock of who now owns the horcrux than an actual interrogation technique.

* As hard as it is to believe that someone as sweet as WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake would resort to something like this, she did indeed in one of the original specials, in her own way. (And indeed, it was one of the rare times she was visibly angry.) After the Pieman had framed her for cheating in her own contest, she deliberately spoke in Berry Talk to him [[WeaksauceWeakness (something he simply can't stand)]] until he broke down and [[EngineeredPublicConfession confessed to everyone.]]

* In the "Nazi Waffen-SS vs. Viet Cong" episode of ''DeadliestWarrior'', the dramatized fight begins with the Waffen-SS leader being beaten up and harshly interrogated by a Viet Cong squad, whose leader has pointed a gun at his head. He refuses to talk and is rescued soon after by his own comrades. [[spoiler:The fight ends with the Waffen-SS leader obtaining his revenge [[ManOnFire by torching]] the Viet Cong leader with a flamethrower]].

* ''Film/FemaleAgents'': The standard m.o. of the Nazis in questioning prisoners.



* According to Sirius Black in Creator/JKRowling's ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'', Aurors during the first war were given permission to, and did, enact this trope. Given the Ministry's standard for due diligence and investigative competence, it is likely that a great many innocent people were tortured (Such as Sirius himself, who was later sentenced to life in prison without trial). RetiredBadass Alastor Moody was singled as having never done this in spite of being authorized to do so to show he's a good guy.
