* From the ''ThreeHundred'' film, best illustrated by Xerxes' speech to Ephialtes. Note that Ephialtes wanted revenge on Leonidas, who had -- justifiably -- not allowed [[DreamCrushingHandicap the physically unable hunchback]] to become a Spartan, and so the former ''gladly'' bowed down to Xerxes the first chance he got.

* The last episode of ''FruitsBasket'' has Akito angrily grab a kneeling Tohru by the hair and force her to get on both her hands and knees before him. He then states that he will "make her regret she ever had anything to do with the Sohmas", that she will "suffer as we suffer", and demands that she "beg him for forgiveness" and "swear that she'll never interfere with the Sohmas again." [[spoiler: It fails in the end: while Tohru does briefly give into despair, she ultimately brings herself back and helps Kyo anyway. As a result, Kyo's ParentalSubstitute Kazuma [[KneelBeforeFrodo bows to]] ''[[KneelBeforeFrodo her]]''.]]
