* Kage Baker's novel ''[[TheCompanyNovels In the Garden of Iden]]'' has its immortal cyborg protagonist, Mendoza, rescued as a child from the Spanish Inquisition. She is not above using this to try to squeeze sympathy and better job postings from her superiors.
* Depicted as a cancer on an idealized body politic in ''TheFountain'' by Creator/DarrenAronofsky. Then we realize it was [[spoiler:[[AllJustADream All Just a Story in the head of a dying astronaut who has attained enlightenment.]]]]

* ''WarhammerFantasy'', [[OlderThanTheyThink way before]] Warhammer 40K, had the Witch Hunters, agents who hunted down Chaos activities, unlicensed magic users, mutants, and whatever else they don't like much. Their authority might come from local authorities, the official [[KnightTemplar State Cult]], or simply [[{{Vigilante}} be acting on their own]].

* Paul Luther is detained by the Inquisition in ''EternalDarkness''; his chapter is even titled "Heresy!".
* The Inquisition is still around in the DresdenFiles. [[spoiler: GoodShepherd Father Forthill is even a member.]] Nowadays, though their primary goal is dealing with dangerous supernatural threats and helping the Knights of the Cross. They're really very sorry about what happened in Spain, and have sworn off political power because of it.
