* Unsurprisingly as it's the same story, ''TheTudors'' has this frequently as well, the scene of many a moving last speech beforehand. Though in this one the nasty joke against Cromwell is not by the king but several councillors. [[spoiler:Eventually a nearby guard rushes in to take off his head, after over half a dozen less than accurate attempts by the inebriated headsman]].

* The AliensVsPredator games of course feature plenty of decapitations as trophies and/or delicious snacks. Special mention to the Predator Speargun in AVP2 that removes human heads and pins them to the wall. You can then collect the heads to recover the spear and trophy.

* The guillotine was proposed for the sole purpose of beheading people as humanely (quickly) as possible. (It was so efficient that spectators were said to be disappointed at the brevity of the show.) Contrary to popular belief, Joseph Guillotin did not invent it (he merely proposed for it to become standard), nor was he a victim of it. The real ironies of the guillotine were (1) Robespierre dying by it (of course) and (2) [[LEtatCestMoi Louis XVI]] had a hand in developing the standard design (specifically, it was he who suggested that the blade be angled, so as not to bounce off the neck of the condemned).

* This is a way people die in the ''Film/FinalDestination'' series, whether it be by a piece of shrapnel slicing their head off, or getting it cut off in an elevator.
