* Shooting Police Officers on their knees in ''{{VideoGame/Watch_Dogs}}'' forces them out of the battle, and gives less negative Karma points than killing them. Unfortunately, this doesn't work on any other NPC in the game, meaning that shooting an escaping criminal on their leg usually makes them flinch/kills them.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', an unusually high number of generic guards will sometimes tell you that "I used to be an adventurer like you. Then I took an arrow in the knee." (Though this could be a misunderstanding, as the phrase is also a slang term for getting married.)

* In ''[[{{Stardoc}} Blade Dancer]]'', this has ''already'' happened a few times to Jory, over the course of her [[BloodSport shockball career]], by the time the story begins. [[spoiler:[[FromBadToWorse And then]], it happens a few ''more'' times. By the last chapter, the [[AnArmAndALeg leg has to be amputated from the knee down]].]]

* Used twice in TheFarSide: one is two goons threatening to "persuade" a guy with a wiffle bat (captioned "Ineffective tools of persuasion"), while another has goons waiting outside a guy's window, one doubting they're up to the task, as the guy has "kneecaps from hell" (they're each about the size of his head).
