* WebOriginal/{{Mortasheen}}'s most notable inflictor of this is [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/willoweird.htm Willoweird]], a nasty walking tree that hypnotizes you into eating one of its fruits. When then converts you into a tree, that the Willoweird then parasitically feeds upon. Did we mention that you can survive for ''decades'' in this state?

Sometimes appears as a {{Backstory}}, if a [[SealedIndexInACan Sealed Person In A Can]] was aware while sealed away. Can overlap with GoMadFromTheIsolation if the character's separated from other people rather than among them but unable to interact. See also BuriedAlive for a similar but decidedly less nasty fate, when a character is trapped but can freed by death.

* Downplayed and even made [[PlayedForLaughs slightly humorous]] in Stephen Sondheim's ''Sunday in the Park with George.'' At the end of Act One, all of the characters we've seen throughout the first act form a living tableau of ''A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte'', Georges Seurat's masterpiece. It's a beautiful, powerful image...until Act Two begins. It's been one hundred years, and the people in that idyllic park scene have been trapped there all of that time. While they're able to stretch slightly, they can only do so for a few seconds before they have to return to their positions. Time has stopped for them, and while they can't age, they're also wearing many thick layers of clothing on a blisteringly hot summer day, surrounded by people they've come to despise in the past century, and frozen exactly as they were the moment the painting was finished (a little girl with bad vision isn't wearing her glasses, so her vision will always be hopelessly blurred, ''and'' her hands are sticky; a boatman with bad hygiene has his odor lingering around him--and those sitting near him--and so on). And so long as art historians keep restoring ''La Grande Jatte,'' they're going to be stuck like that ''forever.''

* According to Sine's backstory in ''Toys/LittleAppleDolls'' she was transported to a purgatory full of people stuck in this fate after she died. It's referred to as "the inbetween" between life and death.

** It's later revealed that a government did this to [[spoiler: people who broke their no bodily alterations rule]], just in case those people were ever needed. How useful those people would be after [[spoiler: years, decades, even centuries as statues]] is questionable at best.x

** While Jane's fate is played for laughs and she might not even mind her new existence so much in the end (it's not really evident), a version happens to another much more sympathetic character without any especially magical or scifistic means: [[spoiler: Kept alive indefinitely by advanced medical technology but too hurt to be healed or for the pain to even stop, suffering from the same extreme agony permanently whenever conscious.]] It makes the "must scream" part literal.

* ''Start of Darkness'', one of the prequels to ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', initially plays this straight, when Xykon [[spoiler:traps the soul of Lirian the druid in a magic gem, raises her corpse as a zombie, and threatens to feed the zombie to an ogre, thinking that it will drive her insane]]. Later subverted when [[spoiler:he traps the soul of her lover Dorukan in the same gem. Because EvilCannotComprehendGood, he accidently creates a YouAreWorthHell situation instead]].

Even after that, she has to wait in the Furthest Ring for Hussie knows how long, before Alpha Calliope and Jade find her, signalling that it was finally time for her HeroicSacrifice to destroy the Green Sun and deprive Lord English of his powers.

** It also happens to [[spoiler:Caliborn, half of Gamzee, and Arquiussprite]], at least for a while. [[spoiler:In an alternate timeline,all eight children have a grand final showdown with Caliborn, which ultimately ends with Jake using his powers as Page of Hope to tear Caliborn's soul out of his body. Unable to permanently kill him, Jake seals his body inside Lil Cal, but Arquiussprite and half of Gamzee's corpse are caught in the crossfire and accidentally trapped as well. Roxy then banished Lil Cal into the void, causing it to be found by Dave's Bro over a decade before the comic begins.]] They eventually escape, [[spoiler:[[CameBackStrong fused together as Lord English]].]]
