Moved and/or copied some examples to "Accidental Tickle Torture" in YKTTW
* ''Anime/{{Basquash}}'' features a scene with Dan being tickled by foot fetishist Haruka in their first encounter, where she caresses his feet, which drives Dan to tears with laughter.

* One episode of ''Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa'' has King Dedede becoming overweight from eating too much of a spiked food meant for Kirby. Granted Kirby manages to eat some of it by accident, but Dedede orders a Fitness-based Monster that forces him and Kirby through a series of [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment torturous exercise routines]]. One of them involves muscle massaging, which briefly yet still very evidently is this exactly trope, hence Dedede and Kirby's laughing during the session.

** The Team Rocket trio, among other things, use a tickling machine on the Safari Zone Warden to try and get him to reveal the location of a Dratini in ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''.

* Strongly subverted in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'', when [[BigBad Tai Lung]] tries to kill Po with his [[FingerPokeOfDoom Nerve Strike Attacks]]. Unlike his previous foes, all this does is tickle Po thanks to his immense body fat.

** While not exactly meant to be torture, Dil [[SquirrelsInMyPants hides a duckling inside his diaper]] which does tickle him, [[FridgeLogic considering how long he had the duckling in his diaper in the episode]], it seems to qualify.

* In ''NabariNoOu'', Raikou and Kouichi do this to some poor Alya Academy student for fun. * At least 3 times in NagasareteAirantou. Once on Mikoto from some bats summoned by Rin. Again on Ikuto when he was placed in a trap by Chikage. And lastly on Suzu, when she refused to do studying and was subjected to this by Ikuto.

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'' had an actual session of Tickle Torture. Duke Igthorn had tried to get Granny to reveal the recipe for [[SuperSerum gummy berry juice]], but she gave him a false one instead. During the actual torture, she does eventually give him the real recipe.

Metal Gear Peace Walker had a Tickle Torture scene (which this troper got reminded of by the recurring "Shock Rods" for torture on Phantom Pain) which actually has an explanation for its existence.
Added DiffLines:
* The Japanese version of VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker had some censorship issues with the scene of Dr. Strangelove interrogating Big Boss. This led the already existent torture scene of the game to change tones through new dialogues and [[ConvenientColorChange switching the color of the tools]] to justify the use of [[HarmlessElectrocution "Laughing Rods"]] instead of [[ElectricTorture "Shock Rods"]], giving the method a [[SillinessSwitch less harmful twist]] that toned down the scene for a less severe rating approval. ** The censorship itself is still Averted as failing the [[PressXToNotDie button prompts]] to endure the increasingly flashy torture: [[HighVoltageDeath will still electrocute Big Boss to death]]. ** Being a temporary solution for censorship issues also rendered the Laughing Rods [[CanonDiscontinuity obviously non-canon]]. Even in VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain the Shock Rods appear again [[spoiler:for Quiet's interrogation]].

Added DiffLines:
* PlayedForDrama in ''Film/PsychoIVTheBeginning''. Norman's mother would ''pretend'' she was giving him FriendlyTickleTorture at first, but as soon as he would laugh, she'd use it as an excuse to [[MoodWhiplash abuse him]]. Sometimes, it was also an excuse for her to [[{{Squick}} touch his body]].
