** [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Ork]] [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority Nobz]] are fond of this kind of approach as well. If a squad fails a morale check, a Nob with a Bosspole can "break a few heads" to restore order.

*In ''TheDarkEye'', Borbarad told the inmates of a prison "All of you will follow me. [[BadassBoast I merely asked, who wants to do so alive.]]"

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', [[MagnificentBastard Azula]] has this problem with keeping Ty Lee and Mai loyal. She initially pressures Ty Lee into leaving the circus by setting loose all the animals and ''setting her trapeze net on fire!'' Later on, when Mai betrays her out of love for Zuko, it's explicitly because spoiler:Mai loves Zuko more than she fears her. Of course, at this point spoiler: Ty Lee ''also'' betrays her upon seeing Azula threaten Mai with lifelong imprisonment, winding up to put a bolt of lightning into Mai for it. What gets worse is that this is how Azula treats people she ''likes''.

** Not to mention, as Batman takes them down one after the other, taunting his mooks that Batman is making mincemeat out of them and wondering how long the remainder will last. ** Harley Quinn picks up the habit in ''VideoGame/BatmanGothamKnight''.

* Deconstructed in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. Threatening to execute deserters for cowardice ''doesn't work'' if they're more [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled afraid of getting eaten than getting shot]]. It's also heavily implied that any attempt to carry this out on the demoralized troops prior to the Trost counterattack (who are all on the verge of ScrewThisImOutOfHere) would have started a chaotic bloodbath, which was the ''last'' thing humanity needed. Pixis instead opts for a more positive motivation: everyone is free to go if they want to, but only if they [[ShamingTheMob can stand the thought of their loved ones getting eaten and sharing their fear]]. All of them stay.

* [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Commissars]] have a very Voltairian way of motivating their men. But surprisingly, in gameplay terms it tends to work. And there's never any shortage of troops, since one thing the Imperium has in abundance is manpower.

[[folder:Fan Works]] * ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': [[BigBad Jinnai]] constantly threatens his subordinates with getting them or their families executed if they underperform or act in a way that is less than perfectly loyal to him. After learning that [[BrokenAce Asuka]] -whom he had used like a toy for two years- [[BattleCouple and]] [[TheHero Shinji]] [[RelationshipUpgrade got together]] he warned her that he had shot a traitor, raised a still smoking gun as citing "[[AltumVidetur 'Ultima ratio regnum']], mm, Sohryu?", and shortly after he exploded and declared he would sell her into slavery for not pleasing him.
