* In the backstory of ''TheWheelOfTime'', Lanfear did this accidentally, thinking [[GodOfEvil the Dark One]] was just an untapped magical power source. When "the Bore" was drilled into his [[SealedEvilInACan Can]], evil and brutal chaos was unleashed on the world. Now that he's been re-sealed, the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Forsaken]] plan to break him out again--this time completely. They ([[TheDragon mostly]]) don't understand that ''fully'' breaking him out involves destroying the world itself, and themselves.

* This happened in ''VideoGame/PaperMario'': The Thousand-Year Door. [[spoiler:Grodus freed the Queen of Darkness, who promptly destroys Grodus's body.]] However, [[spoiler:The Shadow Sirens]] intended it to happen all along.

* Occurs to recurring baddie Jammerhead in the ''[[TMNT2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fast Forward]]'' episode "Enter the Jammerhead", after he had been imprisoned during his last appearance. The "partially cognizant" bit comes from the fact that he was suffering from a system crash (Jammerhead is at least partially cybernetic) that had left him catatonic.

* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', GadgeteerGenius Bakuda goes on a massive bombing spree, entirely as a distraction so that her gang can break into prison and free Lung, her boss. Lung immediately takes charge of the gang, using the momentum from the bombing spree to launch a massive gang war that prompts [[BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork every other supervillain in the city to join forces against him.]]

# The person or thing being broken out is heavily tired by their long captivity, and must be minded by their liberator. Perhaps his mental faculties are in order, but his body is not, perhaps the opposite. Regardless, it will normally take anywhere from a few days to a few years to recover. Rarely, this state can be permanent.

* Still in great shape, but certainly past his prime was [[{{Dragonball}} Piccolo Daimaoh]]. He managed to curbstomp Goku the first time they met, before he got rejuvenated by the Dragon Balls. Also, sort of Type 3 for Pilaf, who, even if he didn't get killed, also got no gratitude from Piccolo and got ditched pretty quickly.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'', three ghosts with the attire and personalities of gangsters sneak into the Firehouse in an attempt to spring the "boss-lady" (Spiderlegs, a powerful ghost who was jailed off-camera) but have no idea how to work the Containment Unit. So they decide to grab Slimer and hold him for ransom, which quickly turns into a PityTheKidnapper story that results in ''them'' getting busted. (And worse - for them - contained with their ''very'' angry boss.)
