* 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]].

* In ''Literature/TheGirlFromTheMiraclesDistrict'', Nikita's kept prisoner like this, with her hands chained to the ceiling and her toes just barely touching the ground so that she'd be unable to stand properly. It proves less than effective when she [[HulkingOut hulks out]] and becomes over a foot taller.

** The Digimon Emperor did this to the Digidestined aside from Davis in an episode of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', telling him that he could only save one. Luckily, it turned out not to be the real Digidestined at all.

* 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 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]]...]]

* 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. 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).

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