* In ''Film/MidnightRun'', Jack is a licensed bounty hunter, not a kidnapper, but otherwise the dynamic is the same, as Mardukas annoys the bejesus out of him with his constant irritating questions. The same film showcases a defiance of this trope when rival bounty hunter Martin gets a hold of Mardukas: Mardukas starts trying to be annoying, but Martin just knocks him out with one punch and by the time Mardukas wakes up again, they've made it all the way to Las Vegas and Martin has handcuffed him to a toilet and [[spoiler:is taking pictures of him to sell him out to The Mafia]].

* The''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' episode "Ruthless Tommy" featured Tommy being kidnapped by two criminals who mistakenly believe him to be the child of a billionaire (due to them getting their ''actual'' target's house address wrong). Tommy proceeds to act in his usual manner and promptly destroys their hideout. By the end of the episode, the exasperated crooks apologize frantically and return the baby back to the Pickles ''before they even realized Tommy had been missing''.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse2013'' short "Road Hogs", a group of bikers kidnap Minnie by tricking her into riding with them. When she proves too much for them to handle, throwing out the leader's stuff from his sidecar and cleaning him up ''as he's driving'', he begs Mickey to take her back, as she's nuts.
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/SabansAdventureOfTheLittleMermaid'' has Hedwig [[FountainOfYouth transform Carol into a baby]], and kidnap her as leverage against Marina. Unfortunately for her, baby Carol wrecks her lair inside-out, to the point that Hedwig gives up her hostage instantly when Marina comes knocking.

* On ''Series/TrueBlood'', Bill Compton is forced to turn the teenaged [[Creator/DeborahAnnWoll Jessica]] [[FieryRedhead Hamby]] into a vampire, as punishment for staking Longshadow. It is implied that the vampires think this will be agonizing torture to Jessica, but the moment she realizes that this means she'll no longer under the thumb of her ultra-religious and abusive father, she becomes insufferable. Bill and Eric at first pass her back and forth to get rid of her. She does eventually get better, but it's amazing nobody shoved her out in daylight before her attitude improved.
