* Xena from ''XenaWarriorPrincess'' often uses a paralyzing pressure point technique that cuts off the blood flow to the victim's brain. She would quickly explain to the victim that they only have 20 seconds to live and would have to agree to help her in order for her to heal them with yet another pressure point.

A third variation is to have the clever assassin who has poisoned her mark describe in every small detail exactly how the poison works, while she sits calmly in her chair watching the victim squirm. Sometimes the assassin has not, in fact, poisoned the victim at all, but the description is so vivid that the victim either passes out or dies of fright. Fortunately for the victim, the assassin is often CarryingTheAntidote.

* [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon''. Heroes with the Sadistic affliction will spout out various ToThePain lines constantly, which won't faze the enemies one bit. Their fellow heroes, however, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero will gain stress as they become more and more disturbed by this]].

** When he uses the Tenbu Horin and takes away his victim's senses he describes what exactly he's doing to them, even taking care to explain side effects that apparently come out of nowhere (for example, when his victim loses the sense of taste he explains that they can't talk anymore because he just fried the nerves in their tongue, while the loss of tact also affects their balance because the brain has no idea where everything is anymore).

** If [[MuggingTheMonster someone who picked a fight with him]] and refused his offer to just go away [[OhCrap suddenly realizes what they're dealing with]] and tries to run he'll subject them to illusions that make them appear they're running through the whole universe before they find themselves on ''his palm'', at which point he'll describe the futility of trying to run from him while comparing them to [[Literature/JourneyToTheWest Sun Wukong's equally futile attempt to run from the Buddha]] (where he took the imagery from, as he's the reincarnation of a Buddha).

* Milo the Scorpio Saint on ''SaintSeiya'' was famous for using an increasingly painful attack that targeted various pressure points. After striking the first few hits he'd start describing the various stages of agony, madness, and finally death that would fall on a victim should he hit the 15th Pressure Point. Subverted in that hitting a different set would cure a victim.
