* ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' has John Connor order the T-800 to show Dyson he really is a robot. The T-800 peels off the skin and muscle of his arm, only to look at the exposed endoskeleton dispassionately.

* ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' has John Connor order the T-800 to show Dyson he really is a robot. The T-800 peels off the skin and muscle of his arm, only to look at the exposed endoskeleton dispassionately. Dyson is understandably horrified by this, so it takes a few seconds for it to sink in...and then he's horrified for a different reason. His wife, who wouldn't have recognized the significance of the arm, meanwhile was probably wondering what the hell was going on.

* It's not done to show immortality, so it might not count, but in one ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', a recently freed Hork-Bajir is suspected of being controlled by a Yeerk (parasitic alien brain-living slug). His response is to ram his arm blades into his skull and [[CrazyAwesome pull his head apart]] to show his own Yeerk-free brain. Tobias, the narrator of that particular book, points out "it's not like it didn't hurt him, either. I could see the pain on his face." He has a HealingFactor, but it doesn't make it any less awesome.

* ''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.
