* Manta Oyamada from Manga/ShamanKing was kidnapped and placed inside a gibbet cage by the X-Laws, who then used him as a hostage to force Yoh and Co. meet with them.

* Manta Oyamada The [[ChurchMilitant X]]-[[KnightTemplar Laws]] from Manga/ShamanKing ''Manga/ShamanKing'' used the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibbeting iron gibbet cage]], a torture/execution method that includes this trope, on their enemies:
** First, a bunch of UsefulNotes/AncientEgypt-themed Shamans attacked the Laws in public. One of them had an eagle AnimalTheme and attacked the X-Law leader Jeanne from mid-air... then he suddenly found himself in a gibbet. He
was kidnapped and placed still inside a gibbet cage by the X-Laws, who it as Jeanne used her Spirit companion to execute him and his partners.
** The X-Laws later captured Manta, put him inside another gibbet,
then used him as a hostage to force Yoh and Co. meet with them.

* The ColdBloodedTorture method known as either [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibbet gibbet]] or "the gallows and the pit" involves suspending the victim upside down ''over hot coals, a fire, etc.'', often via either further injuring the victim or placing him/her inside a sort-of cage.
