* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' ends up using this one in ''Vindicators 2: Rise of Worldender''. Titular [[SuperTeam superhero team]] the Vindicators (along with Rick and Morty themselves) end up trapped in Worldender's lair and forced through a series of DeathTrap games intended to show they aren't the heroes they pretend to be, and the killer running the show is [[spoiler:a black-out drunk Rick who hijacked the lair and set up all the traps himself.]] Of course, since [[spoiler:Rick was smashed out of his mind when he set it all up,]] [[SubvertedTrope the tests of character soon devolve into "make three three-pointers in thirty seconds or the planet blows up".]]

* Vassago in Creator/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.

* ''Film/TheatreOfBlood'' had a washed-up Shakespearean actor (played by Vincent Price) 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.

* ''Film/TheAbominableDrPhibes'' had Phibes (played by VincentPrice) poetically murdering the doctors he feels were responsible for botching his wife's operation. Each of the murders was based on one of the "Ten Plagues of the Egyptians" from Exodus (though a couple weren't quite faithful to the original -- bats instead of flies, for example). Particularly amusing is the murder for "beasts" -- the victim [[spoiler:gets impaled with a statue of a unicorn.]] (It doesn't apply to Phibes in the sequel.)

The SerialKillerKiller can be prone to this if they want to make the point to their murdering victims particularly clear.

* 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.

* 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
