* There are a ton of Charms in ''{{Exalted}}'' that allow you to do this to other people, or potentially have this done to you. Most notably is the charmset of the fallen demon king Malfeas, which includes a charm called ''Kneel or be Knelt'' and another that turns you into a living Ark of the Covenant that melts the skin off everyone who doesn't immediately prostrate themselves to you.

* In the ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' episode "Green No More", [[TheDragon Goldar]] gives this treatment to de-powered Tommy Oliver. He even uses a handy device to show him just how far he has fallen, rubbing it in as much as possible, then demands that Tommy bow and admit that he is his superior before he dies. Tommy starts to give a misleading answer, then flips out and ([[RuleOfCool in the face of all reason]]) kicks his butt all over the Otherworld.
* On an episode of ''{{QI}}'' Stephen Fry pointed out a similarity between the topic discussed and the ''Superman'' movie. Leading him to point at Alan Davies and declare 'Kneel before Zod' in his fantastic upper-class British accent.
* In one episode of ''TheLeagueOfGentlemen'', restart officer Pauline (in an exercise in magazine-selling) demands that Ross beg her. This becomes an IronicEcho when he gets her fired, and then offers to help her get her job back if ''she'' begs ''him''.
