* 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]].

* Implied to be going on if you put a student in detention in ''VideoGame/BlackCloset'' - a successful detention breaks the suspect's will so that they not only confess their crimes, but ''thank'' you for your ''mercy''.

* Happens to a female IMF agent in an episode of ''MissionImpossible'', where the team are trying to stop the BananaRepublic of Terra Nueva invading democratic San Cristobal. The fact that she's wearing a towel also clearly implies she's been strip-searched. They find the information they are supposed to find [[spoiler: microdots in her contact lenses]].

* In the second episode of ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', the goons from St. Olga's Reform School for Wayward Princesses do this to Marco to make him detail where Pony Head is. When this fails at first, they proceed to flicker the spotlight, which prompts him to say: -->'''Marco''': STO-HA-HA-HOOOP! That is really annoying!

* On ''{{Jimmy Two-Shoes}}'', Jimmy attempts to do this to Beezy. Being [[ThePollyanna Jimmy]], he doesn't do it very well. Being [[TheDitz Beezy]], it's effective anyway. * Referenced in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' of all series, where Pinkie Pie uses this to "interrogate" Spike in "Party Of One".
