* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' did an odd version of this where they were deemed bad parents they were forced to wear portable Stocks 24/7 and then had additional punishments added onto such as standing next to a road while motorists spanked them as they drove by.

* In the WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb episode, "Lotsa Latkes", this was Doofenshmirtz's daily trap with Perry the Platypus; he found it in a book of top 10 greatest historical traps. Perry makes his way to Phineas and Ferb in the end still trapped in the stocks, which gives Ferb his one line of the episode.
-->'''Phineas:''' What's Perry doing in a pillory?
-->'''Ferb:''' Actually, those are stocks; a pillory forces the wearer to remain upright, exposing them to poking and prodding from passers-by.

A point seldom touched on in fiction is that being pilloried could be seriously dangerous. People were allowed to throw things at your head, and you could neither dodge nor block them. If you were lucky they would only throw fruit and vegetables (although ''you'' try getting hit in the face with a turnip and see how harmless that would be). If you were unlucky (or unpopular), they'd throw stones at you instead. Or materials obtained from stable floors. And if you were really, ''really'' unlucky, [[PrisonRape it would be as bad as if you'd dropped the soap in a prison shower]].

* ''VideoGame/Fallout4'''s "Contraptions Workshop" DLC added a pillory item you can build in your allied settlements and put [=NPCs=] into. This means that they won't be gathering food or scrap or manning a store, but if one of your settlers keeps complaining, or [[ArtificialStupidity blocking doorways]], or nearly killed you during that skirmish with raiders, maybe they deserve to be in there.

* The Gibbering Prophet of ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' was put in a stock to die of exposure or starvation in one of the many ways that the Ancestor tried to kill him. To this day, he wanders around in said stock, although he broke one of his arms free so he can hold his eyeballs.
