** During his reign as the Runelord of Greed, Karzoug the Claimer (the BigBad of TableTopGames/{{Pathfinder}}'s ''Rise of the Runelords'' Adventure Path) used a variation of this to punish the High Vaultkeeper of Vadan (a position that presumably included accountancy) after he was found to have made some mistakes (the quote from Karzoug on this is unclear if he was stealing them for himself or genuinely miscounted):

* The heroes of Creator/LSpragueDeCamp and Fletcher Pratt's ''[[HaroldShea Incomplete Enchanter]]'' at one point encounter an evil wizard who has punished his apprentice for spying for the good guys by paralyzing him into a nude, flesh and blood statue. Of course, this being written in the 1940s there's no suggestion that the wizard... does anything else... to his young victim.

* ''Literature/VillainsByNecessity'': Mizzamir inflicts this on Sam after a brief encounter, planning to come back and Whitewash him once he recovers from an injury. Valerie remarks that this is typical behavior for a "good" mage; transform criminals to stone, then leave them there until he decides what's to be done with them. Her personal opinion on this is that a BalefulPolymorph is more useful if you need to keep an enemy alive for a while -- frogs and newts are a lot easier to transport than several hundred pounds of stone, and don't attract attention if one who CantHoldHisLiquor suddenly appears in the middle of the street.
