* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': Dreadnoughts are the armored sarcophagi of SpaceMarine heroes, used as heavy-duty combat walkers and spending centuries in slumber between campaigns. Being put in one is an incredible honor, as it means the Marine is considered important enough in terms of experience and morale that they may continue to serve in death. Chaos Dreadnoughts have the same function... but being in one is considered one of the worst fates a servant of Chaos can face, for one simple reason: they don't get the luxury of spending their non-combat time asleep, instead having their weapons and limbs deactivated and having to wait for the next battle, fully aware of every passing second.

** [[MagnificentBastard Lord Vetinari]] loves doing this. Just previously, he'd informed Moist that if he didn't accept the terms, Moist could just walk out that door over there and never hear of this again. Naturally, it opens onto an extremely deep pit. The villain actually chooses that option given the same choice.
