* There was a ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' sketch that parodied Seven (from ''Se7en'') using the Smurfs, with Jokey Smurf as the serial killer. Baker Smurf was baked alive in an oven, Lazy Smurf was killed in his recliner, and so on. Chronic Masturbator Smurf was found with his wang chopped off and stuffed up his Smurfhole.

* Vassago in DeanKoontz's ''Hideaway'' takes his victims to an area of the abandoned theme park fashioned to look like hell, torturing them to death and posing their bodies in ways he thinks would suit their flaws and sins. He also thinks he's from Hell and if he does this enough, will get to go home.

* Shane Casey on ''{{CSI NY}}'', who targeted victims who were involved in his brother's case. The methods and the cryptic tshirts the victims were dressed in all represented their role. One victim, a witness, had nails driven through his eyes. The judge had the Scales of Justice. Hawkes, the coroner at the time, was to have had Hades, lord of the underworld

* Jigsaw in the ''Franchise/{{Saw}}'' movies would arrange a DeathTrap for each of his victims reflecting the flaw or sin that they embodied; as he was a KnightTemplar who wanted to make people "better" than they were, the traps were arranged so that only by overcoming the punished flaw could they escape.

Detective Hoffman, on the other hand, is the antithesis of the original Jigsaw and never intended to show mercy in any of his trap.

* Kevin from ''SinCity'' always chose hookers, apparently perceiving them as sinful, in order to satisfy his craving for human flesh. He apparently "felt the Hand of God" on him when he killed, but was consumed with guilt. It was a Catholic Cardinal and adoptive father who convinced him [[DisposableSexWorker to go after prostitutes instead of "innocent" victims]].

* ''Film/TheatreOfBlood'' had a washed-up Shakespearean actor (Vincent Price again) killing the critics who had failed to recognise his genius in ways based on death scenes from Creator/WilliamShakespeare, with each death also being appropriate to the victim's character flaws.

* Serial Killer X, from the ''VideoGame/{{Condemned}}'' games, kills other serial killers with the methods they used to kill their own victims. However, he does not do this for a sense of poetic justice, but rather because this causes the authorities to confuse the killers for another one of their victims and thus keeping X's involvement unknown.
