* ''Series/AngieTribeca'' is a cop show spoof, so of course they're going to have some fun with this trope. Tanner barraging a suspect with a hurricane of board game puns (you're looking at Life, you're in a lot of Trouble, you'll be Sorry, etc.) is an excellent example of how this usually goes. In another episode, Angie and Jay also quite literally sweat a perp by turning the interview room into a steam room.

* ''Series/BlueBloods'' does a literal example of this in the episode "Immunity". An Argentinian diplomat's son suspected of being a serial rapist targeting college girls, and he is protected by [[DiplomaticImpunity diplomatic immunity]]. He's invited to be questioned at the precinct. Danny deliberately has the A/C unit in the interrogation room shut off, so the guy starts to sweat. Then, after he leaves, the crime scene techs collect the guy's DNA, which is used to nail him (the guy's father is convinced to waive diplomatic immunity, as DNA evidence also proves he's guilty of a similar crime in Argentina, where immunity would not apply and prisons are ''much'' worse).

* Subverted/Inverted/Monkeywrenched in ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'', when they had the killer, but they need to find his latest kidnap victim before she runs out of air. He's GenreSavvy, doesn't drink anything (can't get DNA), doesn't need to poop (can't "trade" him a bathroom break for info), doesn't give them any information, can't be intimidated by even Elliot's best efforts, and they can only hold him for so long. He's a copycat killer, so when TheProfiler Dr. Huang looks at his crimes, he realized that the victims--who, like the original killer, were all mothers--were never raped. They bring in his mother, who reveals that he's a disappointment to her, and he's afraid of the dark. There happens to be a closet down the hall. Awesome ensues. Because apparently ''Law and Order'' takes place in a bizarre parallel universe where TortureAlwaysWorks. And apparently is legal.

** In one episode Tony and [=McGee=] do this by using cookies. Their target is a silent mercenary type and nothing they tried fazed him. So, they offered him cookies As they rattled over what some set of numbers could be, a breath of surprise and recognition he could normally control becomes an obvious cough with all the cookies in his mouth. He gets very flustered as they piece together the information from his denials.

* An early episode of ''DominionTankPolice'' has the force doing it as a ''game show'', with the perp strapped to a spinning knife-throwing target, with a hand grenade stuck in his mouth. Oh, and Leona emceeing in a PlayboyBunny outfit.

** In a similar instance, Peter's mother comes into his room and asks him to "guess what he found under his mattress." He flips out and quickly insists that [[IReadItForTheArticles he only reads those magazines for the articles]]. Cue her explaining that she found his baseball mitt (he put it under his mattress to break it in) and demanding to know what magazines while Peter [[PerpSweat begins sweating profusely]].
