* In ''Videogame/BlazBlue'', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IN5qyJdTQpw Relius Clover's Astral Finish]] had his opponent in this condition. In a way, this varies between characters, such as Arakune's 'Operating Table' being a big flask, Ragna and Rachel being bound to crosses, Jin being tied with [[LightIsNotGood ray lights]], Taokaka being inside a cage, Bang being bound ''and'' forced to kneel thanks to the heavy weights on his legs, etc. Regardless, knowing [[MadScientist what kind]] [[TortureTechnician of person Relius is]], rather than showing what happens to the character, [[GoryDiscretionShot the door closes in and a scream is heard]].

* Heroic example in ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton''. When Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} arrives on Earth, she is confused, frightened, doesn't know English and doesn't know her own strength, so she causes several disasters without meaning it. Batman knocks her out using a Kryptonite chunk, carries her to the Batcave and straps her to an operating table to examine her and check if that unknown alien girl is Kryptonian as he suspects.

** Sarah Jane gets tied down to an operating table by [[MadScientist Solon]] in "The Brain Of Morbius". He wasn't going to operate on her, thank goodness, he was too busy [[spoiler: trying to reanimate Morbius]]. Just needed to keep an eye on her as she kept running away and causing trouble. [[{{Badass}} Whilst]] [[BadassAdorable completely blind]].

More realistic settings involve victims bound to a chair instead. Speaking of reality, remember: the invention of surgery long preceded the existence of anesthetics, so... you and your surgeon needed those straps. Now hold still...
