* A variation of this is stated to have happened to [[BigBad Lord Recluse]] in ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes}''. Though not to prove it to others, but rather to himself. No one ever exactly gave him a manual on what becoming a demi-god fully entailed, so he proceeds to burn, cut, bash and crush himself in various ways, with medical care standing by just in case, to see just how immortal he actually is. Says he had been meaning to test if he could survive a bullet to the head but never was willing to go through with it. He did however find out several times over that ImmortalityHurts!

Self-Mutilation Demonstration is the favorite method of Immortals for proving to others their powers. The method is simple: grab a sharp object, slash open your arm (or any other body part), and let your HealingFactor kick in and amaze your guest. In other words, you take GoodThingYouCanHeal to its logical extreme, deliberately injuring yourself for the sole purpose of proving you have a HealingFactor. Let's hope you also have the superpower not to feel pain.

* Ciel does this in differing ways between the manga and the visual novel of ''{{Tsukihime}}''. In the manga she stabs herself through her eye to the squicking of Akiha, and in the VN she slits her own throat to the amazement of Shiki.

* ''Series/BurnNotice'' liked to frequently remind viewers that ''physical'' torture [[TortureIsIneffective simply doesn't work]], mind games, on the other hand, are sometimes risky but can work wonders. One of their interrogations involved Sam convincing the guy he was talking to that Sam was a crazy sadist by having Sam pretend to get all worked up about how he was going to use the giant knife in his hand on the guy being interrogated, until Sam sliced open his own finger and starting dripping the blood all over the guy's face. As you can probably imagine, this completely freaked the guy out.
-->'''Michael:''' [narrating] There's a saying in interrogation: "Violence perceived is violence achieved." You don't want someone screaming. You want him asking questions, asking "What is he doing with that knife?" Asking, "lf he'll do that to himself, what will he do to ''me?''" Mostly you want him asking, "How do I make this stop?"

* A version that shows both HealingFactor ''and'' KryptoniteFactor in ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'': Koro-sensei shoots one of his tentacles with [[AppliedPhlebotinum the anti-sensei BB bullets]] in front of the entire class to show that the bullets really do work and he indeed dodged all the bullets. The tentacle grows back a few seconds later.
** In later chapters, he shoots a few of his tentacles to show that his SuperSpeed is reduced with every tentacle lost.
