* The climax of ''Series/TheHunger'' episode "Sanctuary" has MadArtist Julian Priest (DavidBowie) strapping Eddie, a murderer on the run, to an operating table to turn him into a grisly piece of performance art. Worse, Eddie is conscious, but ''only'' from the neck up thanks to Julian's subsidiary skills with anesthetics. ''Even worse'', [[spoiler: Eddie does not exist, and the legless corpse the police discover is Julian's. What we saw was his Dying Dream: having committed the murder, he proceeded to kill himself by numbing his body, strapping ''himself'' to the table, and severing his own legs -- knowing he would gain artistic immortality this way]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise''. In "Singularity", a NegativeSpaceWedgie is making the crew act loopy. Dr Phlox becomes obsessed with finding the cause of Ensign Mayweather's headache. He refuses to do any further tests and says Phlox will "have to strap him to a biobed." [[TemptingFate Guess what happens a mere thirty seconds later.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Sawyer in ''Literature/VoidDomain'' is fond of this trope. He takes a great deal of pride in his skill at strapping people down to the point where even little movements are near-impossible.

* This is one of the iconic images of the ''KamenRider'' franchise, as most of the early Riders were turned into {{Cyborg}}s against their will by bio-terrorists. ''Series/KamenRiderOOO''[='s=] MilestoneCelebration of the franchise's 1000th episode (which had the cast making an InUniverse ''Kamen Rider'' movie) paid homage to this with a shot of [[TheHero Eiji]] strapped to a table...in his trademark boxer shorts.

* Likewise, in ''VideoGameSystemShock2'', you come upon a ghostly reenactment of one of the ship's scientists about to perform a rather... radical cybernetics procedure on an unwilling female victim. Considering that you meet the results in the very next room, it's ever-so-slightly chilling.
