* ''Series/Braindead2016'': Agent J. K. Cornish is a mild examples. He's cheerful (which at first makes it all the creepier) reluctant to use [[InsistentTerminology "enhanced interrogation techniques"]] and happily lets Laurel go when the authorization doesn't go through.

** Dolores Umbridge and her Blood Quill.forces students in detention to write lines...with a cursed quill that cuts the written lines into the skin of the student, to the point where it starts to bleed heavily. The scars left by this are even visible years later, as experience by Harry Potter himself. This is a particularly nasty form of torture, as the victim is forced to inflict pain upon himself.
