* The main character's cellar in ''Webcomic/LeAvventureDelGrandeDarthVader''. So far, it has been shown to have an intentionally misspelled sign above the entry door (TEH DANGEON), and to contain: a couch, a harness to hang troublemakers by their scrotum, two pillory-targets for persimmon-throwing against the faces of troublemakers (marked as "TEH TARGHET") and an ass-kicking machine (an engine that moves two wheels with boots on their spokes, marked as "TEH ASS-KIKING MASHEEN").

Added DiffLines:

* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'': SCP-231 must be subjected to Procedure 110-Montauk once every 24 hours, to prevent mass casualties associated with FetusTerrible events. This procedure can apparently inflict as much mental stress on the personnel carrying it out as the physical suffering it entails to its subjects, which has resulted in the suicide of at least one of both groups.
-->Yes, Procedure 110-Montauk is as horrible as you have heard, which is why only Class D Personnel are authorized to carry it out. Yes, it does involve brutal [REDACTED].

* The dreaded "Awful Waffle" from ''SaluteYourShorts'' apparently involves maple syrup and a tennis racket, but little else about it is revealed.

** Especially notable in that Akihiko --the only one in the group who has known Mitsuru for several years, a very confident boxer, and [[BadAss the most self-assured character in the game]]-- ''utterly freaks out'' at the mere thought of being caught, because he ''knows'' [[FateWorseThanDeath what Mitsuru will do to them]].

->''Help! To do something, culling-season rejects, or to be pegged out in the pleasure pits!''
-->--'''Thilf''', ''[[Literature/{{Retief}} Pime Doesn't Cray]]''

An unspecified threat so awful that mere mention of it makes the strong go pale and the weakhearted clutch their chest, used as a RunningGag in a humorous series. Usually, the Maximum Fun Chamber itself is [[TakeOurWordForIt never shown or described]], with whatever it actually is being left to the imagination of the viewer; when and if it is finally shown, [[TheNotSoHarmlessPunishment it is usually deflated as something innocuous--at least, until it is seen in action]].

* An episode of ''KappaMikey'' involves the "Tatami Room". The version threatened is rather different from the one the characters eventually wind up in.

* The Cauls in TabletopGame/MageTheAscension (OldWorldOfDarkness) were an... ordeal... that marked the final corruption of mages into the Nephandi. What exactly the Cauls consist of is never described.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'', Overwatch Soldiers in [[HellholePrison Nova Prospekt]] are threatened with ''[[EldritchLocation Permanent Off-World Reassignment]]'' if they [[YouHaveFailedMe fail their mission]]. Citizens are also sometimes threatened with this if they do not comply with the Combine's regime.

* In [[http://lparchive.org/Monster-Rancher/ this]] LetsPlay of VideoGame/MonsterRancher, monsters are punished for foolery (or just because the player is grumpy) with a trip to "The Box". This works beautifully on the monsters and seems sinister and cruel--that is, until a child NPC's illustration [[http://lparchive.org/Monster-Rancher/Update%2026/10-mr10.jpg shows us exactly what it entails...]]
* Strexcorp’s ‘company picnic’ from ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale''. At first implied to simply be a picnic that you never get to leave, and becomes depressingly boring rather quickly once you run out of small talk to whittle the time away with. Later, though, more sinister implications about it are dropped.

* ''ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'' used a version of this; an estate agent pesters a woman who works with torture victims for the worst torture story she's ever heard. There's a cut-off, and the agent comes out absolutely terrified, schizophrenic and appalled at the callousness of life.
