** Villainous example: [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Angelus]] describes his existence as this. He is forced to spend eternity looking out through Angel's eyes: unable to harm anyone, unable to taste human blood, forced to watch as Angel saves the world and helps the helpless, listening to the endless brooding and angst.

** Varys describes his castration by a sorcerer in these terms, apparently being fully conscious but unable to move or speak during the ritual. Understandably, he's hated magic and those who practice it ever since. He eventually has the sorcerer who did it shipped back to him trapped in a box with his mouth sewn shut for revenge.

* In the series finale of ''Series/{{Forever}}'', Henry is forced into a showdown with fellow immortal Adam. Unwilling to kill the old bastard, Henry resorts to [[spoiler:jabbing a syringe full of air into Adam's bloodstream, causing an embolism that leaves him with "locked-in" syndrome. Adam is left alive, but unable to move, and thus unable to kill himself and regenerate.]]

** Gaston was turned into a rose by Rumpelstiltskin and then clipped by an unknowing Belle.
** The season 4 mid-season finale, "Heroes and Villains", [[spoiler:has Hook being mind-controlled by Rumplestiltskin...and, judging by the desperate way he clings to Emma's arm before Rumpel re-asserts control, he's fully aware the whole time.]]

Belle. [[spoiler: It is later confirmed this did kill him, as he appears in the Underworld, but then again, he later goes to hell.]]
** Medusa is turned to stone. Her petrification releases those she did the same to, and is never undone, leaving her a statue forever.

** In Season 6, Prince Achmed, and later [[spoiler: Jafar]] are turned into a staff. Though, like with the puppets, it's unclear as to whether they're conscious for it.
** Stanum's transformation into the Tin Man leaves him immobile, as a tin statue. [[spoiler: He is not seen again, though it is implied by Zelena that Dorothy may release him down the road, and also possible that he was restored when all the realms destroyed by the Black Fairy (including Oz), and everyone in them including the [[HeroicSacrifice Evil Queen]], were revived.]]

** There's a baddy who ended up like this. After he'd died, his ghost survived by sending other people to Hell in his place. After using [[AppliedPhlebotinum phlebotinum]] to bring him back to mortal life, and realizing they can't kill him without starting the whole thing over again, the heroes instead imprisoned him in a life-extending "cell": a locked closet in an empty basement hallway. Forever.

-->'''Angel:''' Welcome to hell.
*** Perhaps especially terrifying, that hallway is ''full'' of cells. How many people are locked away down there?

** Crowley of all people [[PlayedForLaughs plays this for laughs]]. When he becomes King of Hell, he transforms it from a FireAndBrimstoneHell into an [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment eternal waiting line]], where the people who get to the front are sent all the way to the back, and are forced to go through the experience for the rest of eternity. Crowley's reasoning behind this is that some of the people in hell are TooKinkyToTorture, but ''nobody'' likes waiting in line.
