* Done in [[https://artstuckinmyeye.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/jesuschristsuperstar_last_supper.jpg this scene]] from ''Music/JesusChristSuperstar''.

to:

* Many film dramatization of the life of Jesus will stage a Last Supper scene that looks like Leonardo. Done in [[https://artstuckinmyeye.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/jesuschristsuperstar_last_supper.jpg this scene]] from ''Music/JesusChristSuperstar''. There's another live-action staging of the painting in the 1951 version of ''Literature/QuoVadis''. The 1925 version of ''Literature/BenHur'' does this as well, but since Jesus is TheFaceless in that movie, there's another guest posed directly in front of him.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MalditaCastilla'''s TrueFinalBoss features a Satanic mockery of the painting's imagery. The demon Luzfarel is found sitting at a table with his demonic lackeys all on the same side of the table. Given that this level is literally Hell, this should surprise nobody.

Added DiffLines:

* There's a live play called ''The Living Last Supper'' that has thirteen actors, each one playing a character from the supper, with each one delivering a soliloquy before saying "Is it I?" and assuming their position from the original painting.

Imitating Creator/LeonardoDaVinci's painting ''Art/TheLastSupper'', often for promotional art. This works for a variety of different plots or events. If there is a character who is an example (or a subversion, or an ironic inversion) of a MessianicArchetype, or otherwise has some kind of plot-related parallel with the story of the betrayal of Christ, he or she will be placed in Jesus' position, frequently complete with downcast eyes and spread arms. The scene itself often has some thematic connection to the biblical Last Supper, whether it is a group shot of the series' team with a betrayer in their midst, or a gathering of friends that is a metaphorical "last supper" (like a group of coworkers planning to go their separate ways), a leader and his/her followers or supporters, or foreshadowing the death/persecution of the character in Jesus's spot.

This is actually TruthInTelevision; artists have made quite a few versions of "The Last Supper", many of which have been viewed by the public as bad taste (or worse). Technically, you can't truly accuse someone who does this of "stealing" (Leonardo's works are not copyrighted) at least in any legal way.

* Done in two episodes of ''Series/That70sShow''.

* Done In an early episode of ''Series/That70sShow'', after Eric agrees to streak at a political rally with his friends, he informs the rest of the group that nobody can find out since "If my father finds out what we're planned, he will nail me to the wall," at which point a heavenly glow seems to hit the table and everyone is frozen in two episodes a Last Supper pose with Eric as Christ.

** In the episode "Margaritaville", Kyle says he has "this feeling that one of you will totally betray me", and everyone gasps and freezes into Last Supper position.

* In the intro to Creator/ZackSnyder's ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' film, the Minutemen are set up to resemble "The Last Supper" when they celebrate Sally Jupiter's retirement. Since it's Sally's party she's in the Jesus position. [[spoiler: The Comedian is in the position of John (popularly mistaken for Mary Magdalene), it's might be a hint to who's been involved with the visibly-pregnant Sally. What's more, Sally's husband is in the position of Thomas (finger raised and angrily demanding an explanation).]]
