* On the “Restoration” episode of the British television program ''Series/TheSupersizersEat'', Sue Perkins places a live snail on the tip of her big toe to demonstrate an old-fashioned method of removing corns. As the snail slowly makes its way down her sole, Sue has difficulty finishing her sentences and begins to stumble and repeat her words while stifling laughter. Sue admits to having ticklish feet and, once the snail reaches her arch dead center, she is unable to contain her laughter.

* On the "Medicine" episode of ''Series/YouCantDoThatOnTelevision'', hostess Christine "Moose" spends the bulk of the episode in a cast, with her bare sole sticking right in the camera. At the very end, Ross, the producer, threatens her foot with a feather duster while she begs him not to. He then tickles her foot, causing her to fall over hysterically into a nearby trash can.

* Take caution Googling "Tickle Torture," for fear that you'll come across a generous amount of websites listing this trope [[RuleThirtyFour as a fetish]].
* [[https://youtu.be/zv32tVH2Hhg Miriam Pielhau]] had her soles tickled during a broadcast of GIGA Green. She attempted to resist and continue her sentence but, the tickling proved to be too effective and she quickly crumbled.
* [[http://www.travelchannel.com/shows/samantha-brown Samantha Brown]], host of multiple Travelogue Shows on the Travel Channel, seems to react to most treatments involving her feet as this.
** During her "Great Hotels" episode in Savannah, GA, Sam received a pedicure that included having her foot scraped with an oyster shell. Sam admits to [[LogicalWeakness being ticklish]] after her foot begins to jerk, saying she hopes she doesn't [[BewareTheNiceOnes kick the technician in the chin.]]
*** Another occurred in her "Passport to Latin America" Mexico City episode where [[WeirdnessMagnet Sam]] enters a market for a spiritual cleansing, complaining of achy feet, back and throat. The man in charge of the "cleansing" [[HumiliationConga brushes her with a branch, rolls an egg on her head and arms, blows cigar smoke in front of her face and rubs garlic on her soles]]. Sam's composure breaks as the cleanser begins to rub oil on [[AchillesHeel her toes]], causing her to giggle uncontrollably. She even asks how to say "ticklish" in Spanish. The cleansing is completed by tossing two palmfuls of birdseed over her shoulders. Total Cost: [[WasItReallyWorthIt $8]].
*** The most notable incident was in [[https://youtu.be/BB25LFy-f7I "Samantha Brown's Asia" Cambodia]] episode. Sam stops to try a fish pedicure, where the fish nibble away dead skin from feet, resulting in smoother skin. Sam is justifiably nervous when the fish start to gather around her feet but, she submerges them in the water anyway. Upon contact with the fish, [[SensoryOverload Sam bursts into laughter]], struggling to keep her feet still. However, her hysterical laughter quickly transitions into [[ResistanceIsFutile hysterical screaming]] as she begins desperately swatting the fish away. She soon regains her composure long enough to explain the fishes' purpose but her feet continue to twitch and jerk throughout the pedicure.

* The best example of this is undoubtedly Cor and his huge variety of short stories and vignettes which together explore every variation of this trope possible.
* In ''WebCreator/SilverQuill'''s review to ''Rainbow Falls,'' he is not too happy with Toon Critic stealing his continuity joke, so he has a group of griffins take him away and tells them to give him "the treatment." Even though we don't see anything, we can tell what's going on when Toon Critic says that he is "not here for feathers," and then we hear him laughing and begging for mercy.

* Baloo tickles King Louie in ''Disney/TheJungleBook''.

* In ''Disney/TheJungleBook'', King Louie is holding his arms up in place of a column in his palace-ruins. Baloo was in a similar position, until he [[SarcasmMode nicely]] stepped out and shifted the entire burden to King Louie. Taking the opportunity presented by King Louie's raised arms, Baloo tickles King Louie him until the entire building collapses. Ironically, Baloo himself told Mowgli in ''Disney/TheJungleBook''.an earlier FriendlyTickleTorture scene, that one didn't do that in the jungle.

* Played very darkly in ''[[VideoGame/TheSecretWorld The Park]],'' when Nathaniel Winter's final note reveals that he kidnapped a child and tickled him ''until he couldn't breathe.'' Given that Atlantic Island Park is already notorious for missing persons, it can be assumed that the child didn't survive the encounter. [[spoiler: Technically, the real goal of the tickling was to give Winter enough [[InsubstantialIngredients laughter]] to activate his machines and make him immortal.]]

* In the 1947 film Hue and Cry, street boy Joe and his friends apprehend crook Rhonda Davis in her home and tie her to a chair with the intent of making her tell them who her boss is. While debating on what interrogation method to use, the younger Alec suggests tickle torture but, is quickly shot down by Nicky. During the interrogation, Nicky repeatedly threatens to cut the uninterested and annoyed Rhonda with a pocketknife but, is unable to follow through with it. The camera then widens to show Alec at Rhonda's stocking feet. Rhonda easily dismisses Alec, who has been ineffectively tickling her feet with a brush the entire time.
