* 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, the titular "gibbet". 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''), [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martyrs_of_Japan#Petrus_Kibe_Kasui_and_187_Companion_Martyrs_of_Japan Blessed Petrus Kibe Kasui]] (''kirishitan'' Jesuit priest), and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giordano_Ansaloni Saint Giordano Ansaloni]] (Sicilian missionary stationed in Japan). In fact, the ''tsurushi'' is often seen in religious arts that feature Lorenzo Ruiz, [[http://www.vatican.va/news_services/liturgy/saints/img/19861018_lorenzo_ruiz.jpg like]] [[http://sjsm.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/san-lorenzo-ruiz-y-co.gif these]]. This is probably the origin of the Tarot Card, the Hanged Man, depicting a bound person swinging from a gibbet by one foot.

* In ''VideoGame/BlazBlueChronophantasma'', if [[LadyOfWar Tsubaki Yayoi]] is hit by [[MadScientist Relius's]] Astral Heat, she's shown in this position ''and'' with [[BoobsAndButtPose her back turned as well as her butt at the viewer]]. Similarly, [[BloodKnight Azrael]] is seen bound upside down, [[HandsomeLech Kagura]] is tied up from what looks a LOT like a gallow (only he's bound rather than "properly hanged"), and [[spoiler: Izayoi]] is restrained by a pillar "made" of mechanical hands.

* This is done to the inflatable "Citizen" in the Save the Citizen game in ''Film/SkyHigh'', to simulate villains doing this to their captives. Will Stronghold mentions at the end how after they replaced the citizens with the actual villains no-one saved the Citizen anymore, but we're to assume that's a joke because [[DontExplainTheJoke he said as much]].
