Playing With / Too Kinky to Torture

Basic Trope: A character who derives pleasure from being tortured, sexual or otherwise.
  • Straight: Emperor Evulz attempts to get Hank to talk through shocking him repeatedly with 2000 volts. Bob is moaning and writhing in pleasure.
  • Exaggerated: Evulz sets it to 1,000,000 volts. Hank is is grunting and hollering for more and has jizzed in his pants.
  • Downplayed:
    • Evulz attempts Tickle Torture, and Hank, giggling, tells him he should get more feathers.
    • Evulz punches him in the face repeatedly to torture him and Hank asks him to try harder next time.
  • Justified: Hank is a Combat Sadomasochist who enjoys inflicting pain and receiving pain, even in bed.
  • Inverted:
    • Hank succumbs to Evulz' torture devices as his brain just can't take that much pain.
    • Inverted and Exaggerated: At the very mention of the electrical shock, Craven caves in and agrees to any of Evulz' terms, all the while kneeling, shivering and about to break into tears.
    • Alice tries to seduce Bob by messaging and kissing him gently on the neck and Bob feels like he's being tortured because he doesn't like feeling comfortable physically or because even that leaves him in pain.
    • Bob can't get off, upon receiving physical pleasure and comfort which makes you wonder how he's even able to have sex.
    • Evulz tortures Hank, and it's Evulz who gets off.
  • Subverted:
    • Hank fakes orgasm for a few seconds before remarking "Okay, this actually hurts."
    • Evulz knows Hank gets off on this sort of thing, and sends him into solitary confinement instead.
  • Double Subverted:
    • It turns out it was a joke, and Hank tells Evulz to keep going.
    • Hank soon learns the pleasures of neglect play, and begs Evulz to leave him in there again by the time he's done.
  • Parodied:
  • Zig Zagged: Hank laughs it off, then realizes this actually hurts... but it turns out he was thinking about something else, and laughs again, only to realize that Evulz turned up the torture dial, and this times he grunts in delight...
  • Averted:
  • Enforced: The writers realize Hank is too vanilla, even as an Action Hero and he needs a quirk.
  • Lampshaded: "Keep slicing me up, I'm gonna come!!"
  • Invoked: Hank purposely obtains a MacGuffin from Evulz so that Evulz will attempt to torture him.
  • Exploited: After finding out about Hank's liking for pain, Mistress Morella proposes him to engage into some Safe, Sane and Consensual BDSM action. He's quite happy to go along with it.
  • Defied:
  • Discussed: "Alright, Evulz is searching for us. If we get caught, I volunteer Hank for torture. He loves it."
  • Conversed: "Damn! He jizzed his pants during torture... That's one kinky number we have here."
  • Implied: Evulz grunts in frustration after walking out of a room as Hank is smiling contently and slowly falling into slumber, strapped to an electric chair that looks like it's been recently used.
  • Deconstrcuted:
    • Hank can actually feel the pain, and he's simply faking it. On the inside, he feels as if he's dying.
    • It's not (just) the pain that gets Hank off, but the possibility that he might die.
  • Reconstructed:
    • But even then, it turns out that torture that is too mild actually turns him on.
    • Hank's kink is a subconscious attempt to cope with the pain.
  • Played For Laughs: Hank has been sent to a torture chamber with a mook. When Evulz checks on them a stressed out mook tells Evulz that he isn't being paid enough for this, and Evulz tells him he's not being paid at all and tells him to get back to work. The mook nervously looks at Hank who winks at him, and the mook shudders.
  • Played For Drama:
    • Hank writhes with pleasure during torture, but he's still bleeding badly, and before Evulz knows it, his Torture Technician has killed the poor fella.
    • Hank is deeply ashamed of his masochistic joy at the prospect of being tortured, and doesn't want his friends to know about it. Evulz knows this, and uses his shame to torment him far more effective than the actual torture itself does.
