* In David Eddings' ''[[Literature/TheElenium The Shining Ones]]'', a hit is put out on one Avin Wargunsson: diminutive and little-loved heir to the Thalesian throne who was abusing his power and was a general embarrassment to his country. The people assigned to the job decide on a whimsical method. They bring in a barrel of expensive red wine, claiming it is for him, open the barrel, then proceed to stick him inside and nail the lid shut. Given the general dislike of the guy, he isn't found until several days later. He was described as still being significantly purple during the funeral, and despite their best efforts, the entire congregation ended up breaking down in laughter. Anyone else who heard the story eventually ended up doing the same; it was ''that'' funny to them.
** There was some regret by at least the two killers. They wasted a perfectly good barrel of wine!

* Kakihara, the VillainProtagonist of ''Manga/IchiTheKiller'' has something of a [[RasputinianDeath Rasputinian Undignified Death]]: He's horrified to have to fight the ferocious Ichi but when he finally gets the guts to go and attack he triggers his opponents fury and a swift kick from Ichi's razor-bladed shoes leaves him stripped naked and with his [[GroinAttack dick cut in two]]. Not ''cut off'', just mangled horribly and painfully. Following this, Kakihara decides he's had enough and tries to flee, managing to jump from the apartment building they were fighting on to end up hanging on another. Ichi pelts him with projectiles while he screams in terror before a bird finally comes to finish him off by shitting on his fingers holding himself up, causing him to slip and fall to his death. Yeah...

* [[BigBad Magistrate Wolfram]] of ''Manga/OokamiNoKuchiWolfsmund'' is finally caught by rebel forces after subjecting countless men, women and children to {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}s in the pass he governs. The masses he oppressed for so long roar in approval as he is sentenced to death by impalement through his ass until the stake comes out his mouth. He smugly tries to talk the rebel forces into sparing him, lest they face the wrath of his master, [[GreaterScopeVillain Duke Leopold]] until it becomes clear they won't barter with him and he brakes down screaming and crying until he is gagged and his punishment carried out. The execution itself is long and drawn out, with Wolfram holding a pained and terrified expression the whole time.

* William the Conqueror, descendant of vikings and first Norman King of England, died from intestinal damage after his horse reared and he was slammed into the pommel of his saddle. [[FromBadToWorse The funeral was even more embarrassing than his death.]] For various reasons, the funeral was delayed and the [[AdiposeRex already swollen body of the king]] got even bigger from expanding gasses. When they attempted to lower him into the stone coffin, his body wouldn't fit. So they tried to cram his body into it. [[{{Squick}} It exploded]]. [[NauseaFeul The putrid smell caused the mourners to flee]] and the rites were conducted hastily.
