* 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. Considering how [[KnightTemplar the X-Laws]] had LOTS of Christian imaginery associated with them and the gibbet cage was used as a torture method by the Christian Inquisition among others, it's fitting. [[spoiler: Manta managed to break through with the help of Mosuke, then Ryu and Tokagero caught him mid-air safely. Then, a fight started. ''Then'', [[FromBadToWorse Hao stepped in]]...]]

* 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. It's also named ''horca y hoya'' in Spanish and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsurushi tsurushi]] ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "reverse hanging"]]) in Japanese. It was frequently used against {{Japanese Christian}}s (''kirishitan'') and their allies in the isolation times, like in the cases of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magdalene_of_Nagasaki Saint Magdalene of Nagasaki]] (full-blooded ''kirishitan''), [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorenzo_Ruiz Saint Lorenzo Ruiz]] (Chinese-Filipino, associated with Jesuit missionaries and ''kirishitan''), [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacobo_Kyushei_Tomonaga Saint Jacobo Kyousei Tomonaga]] (''kirishitan'') and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giordano_Ansaloni Saint Giordano Ansaloni]] (Sicilian missionary stationed in Japan).

This is probably the origin of the Tarot Card, the Hanged Man, depicting a bound person swinging from a gibbet by one foot.

* From ''Film/SherlockHolmes'', this happens to Irene Alder when she tried to follow Holmes and got tied up to a ConveyorBeltODoomt by her wrists by Blackwood. To compensate for the pressure, Watson had to put her up on his shoulders to lessen it.
