* Played with in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10523682/33/Harry-Potter-and-Grief-s-Wisdom Harry Potter and Grief's Wisdom]]''. An [=MI5=] agent acting as Harry's bodyguard, having captured Draco Malfoy, ''implies'' that this is going to take place and lets a round of GoodCopBadCop do the rest of the job.

For all intents and purposes, this is ColdBloodedTorture. Usually indicates that there is some kind of TimeBomb hanging over the heroes' heads and the interrogator has decided that there isn't enough time to "play nice." Threats to kill will be made, firearms will be discharged. Sometimes done after someone has refused to believe an EmptyCopThreat. Of course, anyone who does this is usually at least an AntiHero to begin with. Also, if a suspect knows he only has to hold out for a certain length of time, torture will never work. Good thing TortureAlwaysWorks.

TortureAlwaysWorks. Should it failed, one can alternate the plan and exact the interrogations on [[AndYourLittleDogToo someone]] [[ForcedToWatch else]].

* ''Series/Braindead2016'': The "enhanced interrogation techniques" the FBI almost uses on Laurel, such as immersion (which is ''not'' waterboarding, as it [[LoopholeAbuse uses slightly less water]]). Jack Bauer himself is name-dropped in support during the Senate committee debate on the issue, in a reference to the late US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia doing this (which is ''also'' mentioned).

* Deconstructed in ''Film/TheDarkKnight:''. Batman tries to force the Joker to reveal the locations of [[spoiler: Harvey Dent and Rachel]] by punching him repeatedly and smashing his head onto a glass window. The Joker [[TooKinkyToTorture laughs in response]]. He then voluntarily relents and gives Batman the information anyway [[spoiler: but he switches their locations, thus intentionally providing misinformation]].

* Deconstructed in ''Film/TheDarkKnight:''.
** Batman firsts starts to find his methods are no longer working when interrogating Sal Maroni. Hoisted over a balcony, Maroni remains fearless because the fall would be too short to kill him. Bats then drops him to a broken leg, but Maroni still refuses to tell where the Joker is, explaining that the mob is more afraid of the clown because the Batman has a noticeable code but the Joker has no rules.
** Harvey Dent, having captured a henchman of the Joker, starts trying to scare information out of him by flipping a coin and threatening death if it lands tails. Even though it was a double-headed coin, Batman rebukes Harvey for toying with the man's life, especially since he turns out to just be a former Arkham Asylum patient who knows nothing about where the Joker is.

It would be especially problematic using evidence obtained through torture in the United States. The Eighth Amendment to the Constitution prohibits "Cruel and Unusual punishment." Statute Law, specifically 18 USC 1984, the Civil Rights act of 1869, specifically makes it a crime to violate someone's civil rights under color of law. US treaty obligations also cause problems, as they are a signatory to the "Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment," of 26 June 1987, and the use of torture is a violation of "TheLawsAndCustomsOfWar" as set forth in the (Fourth) Geneva Convention, which prohibits even unlawful combatants from being tortured. While executing unlawful combatants is legal under the Geneva Convention, torturing them is not.

* 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.]]
