* ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan''. Khan traps our heroes in a [[strike:space station]] cave inside a dead asteroid and disables their ability to beam out. He then gloats about how he's done far worse than kill him. "I've hurt you, and I intend to go on hurting you." It culminates in [[http://www.khaaan.com infamy]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/1053817/chapters/2793109 God Is Cruel]]'' features a slight twist on it, where its described to someone other than who it will be done to. Oliver's actions led to Laurel being in a coma and a furious [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Dean]] telling Oliver he'll kill him if she dies. Later when Dean prepares to take her off life support, he explains to Roy why he's going to [[CruelMercy make Oliver live instead]] and why that's worse. Roy is left genuinely terrified by it.
-->"God is cruel, Roy, and so am I. You tell him he's going to live a long, healthy life. Death is too easy. Death would be wasted on him. You tell him he's going to wake up every single day with her blood on his hands. You tell him he's going to live with Tommy and Laurel and everyone else he's killed whispering in his ear every night. I'm not gonna waste a bullet on Oliver Queen, Roy. I'm gonna make sure he lives. Laurel is going to die tonight, and he's gonna have to live with himself for a long time. And trust me, that's worse than death."

* 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.

* In the third book of the [[TheRiftwarCycle Empire trilogy]], a man is desperately seeking an antidote for his poisoned wife. So he sits down and spends an hour describing to the man who created the poison exactly what will happen if he doesn't hand over the antidote. The man breaks.

* ''{{Tsukihime}}'' loves this, as the quote wiki shows. Arc directs the quote at [[spoiler:Shiki, after he rejects her and slices her almost to death. Again. ItMakesSenseInContext.]]

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.
