* In Russia, there are two verbs for supplication: "poklonit'sya" and "bit' chelom," which mean to bow with the knees and to beat (the ground) with your forehead, respectively. "Chelobitye" was seen as humiliating, as the Muscovite princes had to [[KneelBeforeZod prostrate themselves before the Khan]] during the years of [[UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan the Mongol yoke]]. The meaning was carried over into the "Chelobitnyy Prikaz," a [[TsaristRussia Muscovite]] government office to which people sent complaints and petitions meant for the tsar. A letter sent to that Prikaz would begin "Vash kholop byot chelom..." (Your slave prostrates himself...)

* 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.
