* Happens TWICE in ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. First in the episode "Deep Freeze" to a villanous WaltDisney-expy who's obsessed with immortality and has Mr Freeze help him undergo the same cryogenic process Freeze had. By the end of the episode, he's been frozen inside an iceberg at the bottom of the ocean, trapped forever. ** Also happens at the end of "Avatar" to an immortal, undead sorceress. She was technically already buried alive, but by the end, her tomb caves in on top of her. Assuming her immortality kept her alive through that, she is now trapped in a FateWorseThanDeath.

* Clearly the most evil thing {{Spider Man}}'s enemy Kraven the Hunter did was to inflict this on the hero during the "Kraven's Last Hunt" storyline (also known as "Fearful Symmetry") the reason it's regarded as the definitive Kraven story. Having been driven completely AxeCrazy, Kraven confronts the hero, defeating him (using a gun, the weapon he has, up to this point, always hated, shooting the hero while helpless due to a tranquilizer dart) and believing him dead, buries him alive. Spidey eventually digs his way out, but it takes ''a week'', due to Spidey having to recover from the paralysis that leaves him [[AndIMustScream still conscious and unable to move.]] Indeed, this experience clearly gave him nightmares for years to come, as ''every'' time Kraven was mentioned from that point on focuses on that story.

* ComicBook/{{Magneto}} does this to ComicBook/RedSkull in the aftermath of ''[[VillainTeamUp Acts of Vengeance]]'', during which SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} had manipulated the two into working together. Given that Magneto is a Holocaust survivor and Red Skull was Hitler's right-hand man, this had been a rather ill-conceived partnership. Red Skull survives because his [[TheDragon Dragon]], Crossbones, rescues him from the tomb Magneto had created.

* The French comic "Les Maitres de l'Orge" has a disturbing variant: Adrien Steenfort entombs his son's murderer Garcin on the spot of the murder, chaining him to a wall before bricking it up. Every evening, he returns to the wall and removes a brick, giving Garcin just enough food and water to live. This goes on for ''twelve years'', with Steenfort using Garcin as his confident, before Steenfort has a heart attack due to financial problems and ends up unconscious for several days. By the time he's out of the hospital, Garcin is dead, and Steenfort burns his body before shooting himself, expressly likening talking with him as a drug.

* In ''VideoGame/TombRaider'' and its remake, Natla is locked up and buried underground by the other two Atlantean rulers, Tihocan and Qualopec, as punishment for her betrayal. The events of the game are kicked off when a nuclear test unearths the pod, releasing her. ** In ''VideoGame/TombRaiderLastRevelation'', this occurs when Werner Von Croy attempts to steal the Isis and its death trap mechanism activates. An unspecified amount of time later he manages to escape with his prize and a leg injury. At the end of the game, Lara herself gets buried under the collapsing Tomb of Horus, leading to her memorial service in the sequel and her hardened personality in ''VideoGame/TombRaiderAngelOfDarkness''.

* The "Buried Alive model" of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' creepypasta fame. According to one site, "the Buried Alive model appears to be a decaying human corpse attempting to crawl out of the ground". Even scarier? You're SUPPOSED to lose to this guy. And when he does, he [[spoiler:EATS you, and every time you turn on the Game Boy, the screen jumps to the scene of Buried Alive eating you.]] That's OK, I wasn't planning on sleeping, anyway.

* ''VideoGame/{{Pirate101}}'' has a rare case of a hero doing this to a villain, although by accident. El Toro buries [[spoiler: Captain Blood]] he thinks that he had killed him in a duel. The problem was the "dead" man had literally cheated death and become immortal. This resulted in a an accidental creation of a SealedEvilInACan that gets opened many years later when the clockwork armada tries digging up the grave looking for a key that might be on the body. The broken bodies surrounding the now open grave indicate they did not expect to be greeted by a angry, powerful, and very much alive pirate.

* The "king" of Qarth in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' gets this ending, at least in the show. He is locked in a rather spacious treasure vault with his girlfriend, and no food or water.

He did all of this under the guise of trying to help them, when what he really wanted was money to put into said vault. Making this very much a KarmicDeath.]]
