* Used a couple times on ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''. On the episode "Sing a Song of Patrick", an angry mob went after SpongeBob and Patrick, and passed a torches stand ([[RuleOfFunny yes, they burn, and yes, they're still underwater]]), a pitchforks stand, and a... [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking cotton candy stand]]. After all, as the man said, "You can't go riot without cotton candy!" On another episode, Spongebob and Sandy were at the movies, and Spongebob's wig blocked the screen. Spongebob made the mistake of saying [[TemptingFate there was no need to start a riot]], and so they did...

* In ''Webcomic/ScalieSchoolie'', when [[SchoolNewspaperNewsHound Parker]] frames [[FaceOfAThug Violet]] for a variety of delinquent acts, she learns that, in accordance with school code, each student is then given a torch and pitchfork to form an angry mob and hunt her down.

* ''Rachel and Miles X-Plain the X-Men'' speculates that "anachronistic vaguely-European torch-wielding peasant mob" is a service you can order from Doctor Doom Latveria, which is why they keep showing up in the origins of various X-Men.

* The [[Film/{{Frankenstein 1931}} 1931 film version]] of ''Literature/{{Frankenstein}}'' features some of the most famous Torches And Pitchforks angry mobs. They are an UnbuiltTrope example since no one has a pitchfork and Dr. Frankenstein is himself is one of the leaders.

* These occasionally show up in ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'', mostly in the hive cities. Often led by the completely insane Redemptionist priests (whose unofficial credo is "Burn them all and let the Emperor sort them out"), when they're not being riled up by the local sorcerer of Tzeentch to distract the authorities from the daemon being summoned three levels lower or the genestealer infestation provoking unrest so as to pave the way for the Hive Fleet. Or all three at once.

* At the beginning of ''Haunted Legends 5: The Stone Guest'' an angry mob of torch-wielding citizens who blame local scientist Don Leporello for the disappearance of several orphans burn a straw dummy with a photo of his face attached, encouraging the fire to spread to the front of his house.

-->Salazar Slytherin did not want Muggle-borns dead like [Harry] thought. He just did not trust them as the Founders were in a timeline where Muggles were actively hunting witches and wizards, fearing some were spies in order to kill them off. The basilisk was not left in the Chamber to attack students, but rather to protect Hogwarts from the angry waves of Muggles who often ran up to the school with pitchforks and crosses.
