* On TheSimpsons the episode "Love Is A Many Strangled Thing" revealed that Homer's strangling Bart has actually been keeping some of Bart's worst tendencies in check. However the same thing happened on Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie where Homer and Marge gave Bart a legitimate punishment only to let him off the hook. When this happens again in Postcards from the Wedge causing Homer and Marge to let Bart fend for himself, it resulted in Bart attempting to destroy Springfield Elementary to get their attention.

* In ''FanFic/TheVow'', when [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2 Lord Shen]] takes over Gongmen City, he turns the approaching engagement party of his former fiancé [[SwansASwimming Lady Lianne]] and Lord Juan (whom he [[MurderTheHypotenuse murders]]) into a trap for the invited nobility of China. He forces Lianne to help in springing the trap so that he can [[SadisticChoice force the nobility to support him in his conquest of China]]. When the time comes for that, and the Furious Five and Po are imprisoned, Lianne reluctantly goes along with the plan, knowing that should [[NinjaMaiden Jade]] fail to release the heroes, then the success of Shen's plan would mean the least amount of casualties. Fortunately, Jade releases the heroes who then free the nobility.
