The Unfortunate Hug is a type of punishment employed by magicians to keep demons in line. Little is known about it, but based on its name, it may compress the demon's essence in a forceful manner.

Nathaniel once threatened to subject Ascobol to this punishment after receiving cheek from him, asking if he had a preference between this and the Stipples. Ascobol replied that he could not be so cruel and sought to deflect blame onto Bartimaeus. Nathaniel, growing bored of his protests, dismissed him.
