* One way to dispose of unwanted slimes and [[GreyGoo tarrs]] in ''VideoGame/SlimeRancher''is to throw them into a incinerator. You can also do this to chickens and even their chicks. Doing so to the latter even gets you an achievement [[WhatTheHellHero that calls you]] [[YouBastard out for it.]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]] * A side story of ''TelepathicWanderers'' had the telepathic Nanase nursing an old woman who soon died. After the funeral, Nanase began hearing the old woman's thoughts and realized she wasn't actually dead, but moments away from cremation. Torn between saving the old woman and exposing herself as a telepath, she ends up leaving the woman to die.

* Used in JohnCWright's ''Literature/CountToATrillion'': when [[spoiler: the mutineers murder Captain Grimaldi]]. A token attempt is made to claim it was suicide, Grimaldi being a Hindu. The hero accurately points out that no starship captain would endanger his ship in that way. * In ''StarWars: [[Literature/XWingSeries Solo Command]]'', the Wraiths are nearly killed this way by Dr. Gast. A room in the complex the were infiltrating was given a giant TrapDoor for a floor and filled with fake furnishings, and when they entered it they were all dropped into the giant incinerator below, which then activated. Fortunately, they were able to trick the stormtrooper sent to relieve them of their explosives, so they were able to blast their way out in time to survive.

* Burning alive was one possible method of execution from the Middle Ages to around 17th century in Europe. The most famous offence to earn such treatment was ofcourse [[BurnTheWitch witchcraft]] (though only ''after'' the Middle Ages), but heresy and even adultery were also viable options. Depending on the circumstances the victim could be surreptitiously strangled just before the act, but genuine live immolations were far from unheard of.
