* The subject was forcibly stripped naked and covered in hot tar, which if hot enough would burn badly. There was probably a beating or two along the way. After being feathered, the person would be humiliated by being carried around on a ''rail'' - not a rounded pole - the cross-section is square or rectangular, and the corners undoubtedly dug in. That's where most fiction ends. Then consider that if the person survived, the cooled tar would need to be removed - ''aggravating the burns and ripping out hair''. Being tarred and feathered was ''never'' a good or easily-overcome thing. ''Everyone'' would remember what was done to you.

* In ''WesternAnimation/LibertysKids'', the main character James watches as an innocent man is tarred and feathered by a mob and joins in their mocking. This lasts until he is later informed how dangerous the act can be and meets the man being treated for it, near-death.
* One ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short has Wile E. Coyote build a tar-and-feather machine to use it on the Road Runner ("How to Tar and Feather a Road Runner"). The Road Runner zooms by just as the barrels are about to spew out their tools. The barrels end up on the Coyote, with predictable results. In closing, the Road Runner shows up [[TalkingWithSigns holding a sign]]:
--> Road runners already have feathers.
