* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Subverted to humorous effect. After Jon Snow defeats adversarial Thorne in the election for Lord Commander, the Watch has a meeting where Jon assigns new tasks to everyone. One of these is the job of digging a new set of latrines, and after Jon announces this must be done and how important job that is, he gives a [[MeaningfulLook significant look]] at Thorne, who fully expects to be given this terrible duty. Instead, Jon assigns the latrine duty to some random Watchman named Brian, and promotes Thorne to First Ranger.

* In just about any work put into an office setting, being put in charge of [[YouGetMeCoffee getting everyone else coffee]] or other refreshments can be used as this, especially when it's being framed as a deliberate snub/form of exclusion.
---> '''Boss''': We have important things to discuss. While we're doing that, you can go get everyone some coffee, Bob.

* Honestly, members of the United States Secret Service, an elite unit whose duties including protecting important individuals, are subject to this. Regular assignment to individuals whose personality often makes them difficult to be around is regarded as a punishment detail. Clearly, this is an example of this trope.

* ''Literature/CHERUBSeries'' - Performing menial (though always necessary) cleaning jobs on [[SpySchool Campus]] is among the most common way of punishing [[TeenSuperSpy CHERUB agents]] for misconduct.

* ''Literature/CHERUBSeries'' - Performing menial (though always necessary) cleaning jobs on [[SpySchool Campus]] is among the most common way of punishing [[TeenSuperSpy CHERUB agents]] for misconduct. An exaggerated example gets thrown at Lauren for knocking out an instructor with a spade, she has to clean out a huge ditch ''by herself''. After a few days of it most of the other [=CHERUBs=] on campus at the time help her finish it, and the director lets it slide at it's felt she's suffered enough.

** However, in some cases these tasks will go to the NewMeat instead of people on Punishment Detail.
** KP, or Kitchen Patrol, is a common form of military punishment in media (classically taking the form of PeelingPotatoes). In Real Life, it's not nearly as common as it once was.
*** Hilariously enough, the Russian Army has always considered KP a reward rather than a punishment. Sure, PeelingPotatoes is boring and monotonous, but so is, say, tank tread maintenance. KP is far less physically demanding, is done in a nice warm kitchen rather than a snowdrift somewhere and gives you ample opportunity to beg or steal a wide variety of edible goodies.
