* In ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'', one of the three test to be worthy to reach the Grail is being a penitent man, who kneels before God. [[spoiler:(Conveniently putting one's head ''below'' the huge buzzsaw blade that lops off the head of those not worthy.)]]

* Toyed with in Manga/{{Bleach}}. The ability of Izuru Kira's zanpakutou, Wabisuke, is to double the weight of whatever it strikes. As a consequence, after some blocked hits, the enemy is unable to even lift their weapons, and often go in PoseOfSupplication due to said weapon's weight. Kira uses this as a chance to deliver the ''coupe de grace'', decapitating the opponent with his zanpakutou. In his words: "''A warrior does NOT beg for his life''"

* ''TangledAdventuresInArendelle'' has Elsa get into this pose to beg Rapunzel and Eugene for help around her kingdom on day 9 of their honeymoon. It technically doesn't count as AintTooProudToBeg since Elsa is the one with more power in the situation, but this is also Elsa trying to ask for Rapunzel and Eugene to put aside their anger towards her from the last few days. Elsa's just overwhelmed and guilty about her life situation, and she wants a break from the two. That said, it also shows some good development seeing the girl who use to push everyone away actually get down on her hands and knees to ask for help.

* Used several times in ''Anime/PaniPoniDash''. Not just the pose, but it sometimes [[http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/4420/pp5mc0.jpg actually has the letters orz or OTL or STO clearly visible]].

Drop to your knees. Fall forward with arms outstretched, bow your head, and curse cruel fate. Sometimes called '''OTL''', '''orz'''[[note]]no relation to [[VideoGame/StarControl the Orz]][[/note]], or '''STO''' because the shape of the letters approximates this folding of the body.

* Parodied in ''[[Literature/TheElenium The Tamuli]]'', by David Eddings: this is the traditional way to greet the Tamul emperor, but only because one of his less-than-bright ancestors mistook an inebriated minister's drunken bumbling for a show of respect.

* Minori of ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'' does this around the beginning of the story, in a ShoutOut way to the aforementioned ''Manga/CaptainTsubasa'' scene (she even uses the same pre-scene {{Badass}} pose of sternly crossing her arms, with her jacket put on her back like a cape dramatically floating in the wind!), when she, in a misunderstanding, believed Taiga and Ryuuji were an item, and begged the latter to take good care of the former.

* ''Videogame/TomodachiLife'' ''loves'' this trope. If a Mii is on the receiving end of a RejectedApology or a breakup, they drop to their knees and sulk dramatically while sad music plays.
