* The entry for Isabella of France on ''[[http://www.rejectedprincesses.com/princesses/isabella-of-france Rejected Princesses]]'' includes a footnote about the fate of Hugh Despenser.
-->''Despenser was first dressed in a tabard with his family crest and paraded through town on the shittiest horse they could find. Then he was given a crown of nettles, had his skin roughly tattooed with biblical verses on arrogance and retribution, and dragged in a chest around town. Then he was stripped naked, half-hanged, and had his penis and testicles cut off – which were then thrown into a large fire they’d built underneath him. He asked forgiveness of the bystanders, then let out a “ghastly, inhuman howl” and died. They split open his belly, cut out his heart and entrails, and tossed them in the fire. His head was cut off and sent to London, and his body sawn into quarters, each sent to the four next largest cities in England. He was not a popular man.''

* The exchange between BigBad Yzma and her DumbMuscle Kronk in ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'' when the "poison" (actually [[UnfortunateItemSwap a potion]]) they administer to the [[ItsAllAboutMe narcissistic]] Prince Kuzco doesn't quite kill him but instead kinda sorta, uh, turns him into a llama.
-->'''Yzma:''' What?! A ''llama?!'' He's supposed to be ''dead!''\\
'''Kronk:''' Yeah. Weird...

* In Japanese history, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honn%C5%8D-ji_Incident the Incident at Honno-ji]] refers to the forced suicide of UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga by one of his retainers, as well as the burning of the castle he was in and the death of all his bodyguards. Nobunaga was in the final stages of reuniting Japan, and his death threw his forces into a civil war amidst the civil war. An incident, indeed.

* The {{Literature/Discworld}} novel ''Discworld/SoulMusic'' features a ruthless Troll crime boss, Chrysoprase : "People tended not to speak to Chrysoprase in case they said something that offended him. They wouldn't know it at the time. They'd know it later, when they were in some dark alley and a voice behind them said: Mr Chrysoprase is ''really upset''."

* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 2017}}'': It is stated during the confrontation with the BigBad that, once the portal to the Other Side is opened, the dead will return to 'pester' the living. Erin points out that this doesn't sound so bad. The BigBad clarifies that this 'pestering' will take the form of torture, death and carnage. The Ghostbusters then remark that 'pester' is a poor choice of words for what he's describing, and 'apocalypse' would probably be a more fitting one.

* In David Eddings' ''TheTamuli'' Emperor Sarabian is said, by his ambassador, to use this. A hurricane is "a light breeze"; the loss of half his fleet is "a minor inconvenience"; the imminent collapse of his empire as "some civil unrest." This is a tendency common among Tamuls as they have a [[PlanetOfHats racial tendency toward extreme politeness.]]

** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Most definitely applies when Wolverine is involved. The "little help" was basically doing all the killing for them.
--->'''Raven''': Well, you've been busy.\\
