* Dr. Moon from ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' wasn't allowed to get too graphic, as per the censors (not that that's necessarily a bad thing), but seemed to be Cadmus' go-to guy for extracting information with a combination of ElectricTorture and implanting images directly into the victim's mind. Incredibly, The Question manages to take the scene and play it for ''laughs''.

* In ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', you run into droids with this specific purpose. Furthermore, in the sequel [[spoiler: Atton Rand]] reveals that he used to be one for the Sith, torturing and killing Jedi.

* In ''LiberalCrimeSquad'' There is a Psychology skill. A higher Psychology skill means that the character was better at "enlightening" kidnapped conservatives. That means you can train and employ torture technicians.

* Deconstructed with the interrogator for the Damned 33rd in ''SpecOpsTheLine''. [[spoiler: Far from being a sadistic maniac, he was tortured himself…and cracked, just like his victims. "We will be like brothers," he writes, "Having stared down death, and flinched."]]

Added DiffLines:

* Dr. Emily Gray in Machinima/RedVsBlue is able to do what even [[BadAss Carolina]] cannot: get information from a captured space pirate. We don't actually see what she does to the poor son of a bitch, but the sounds of power tools, the man's screams, and Dr. Gray enthusiastically singing opera can be heard. She has to "put him back together" before Carolina is able to speak with him again.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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. He also admits he's been through all of them in his training, which probably helps his reluctance. Still, he believes they're necessary at times.

Added DiffLines:

* Francis/Ajax from ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'' knows quite a bit about torture, since he awakens people's dormant mutant abilities through it (he's a firm believer in DieOrFly). He's also [[TheSociopath completely incapable of pity]].

** TortureTechnician is almost the [[PlanetOfTheHats Hat]] of the Melniboneans in general. Their preferred method for making music is to rhythmically torture a group of surgically modified slaves, for crying out loud.

* Floyd Ferris of ''Literature/AtlasShrugged''.

to:

* Floyd Ferris of ''Literature/AtlasShrugged''. He's definitely the PunchClockVillain version rather than the kind who enjoys it; he's more interested in psychology and controlling people than in actually enjoying someone's suffering.
