* In ''Film/{{Admiral}}'', Admiral Kolchak's family is hiding from revolutionaries in a small house in Crimea, which they consider safe until the only loyal seaman comes with warnings that the revolutionary seamen are coming for them. It's [[RedOctober Russia, the year is 1917]], and it's a place close to a naval base to boot (Navy seamen were among the most hardcore revolutionaries), so it was naive to think it's possible to hide in this place.

Not to be confused with SafeZoneHopeSpot, where the characters never thought their location was all that safe in the first place. Will often be the result if you [[FailedaSpotCheck Failed a Spot Check]]. Also, this trope doesn't apply if the characters never realize the danger they were in.

* ''Literature/WatershipDown''. After a dangerous overland journey after fleeing their warren, the rabbits arrive at another warren with rabbits who are well-fed and friendly, albeit a bit strange. [[spoiler:What the rabbits aren't telling them is their GildedCage is extensively snared by the same farmer who ensures that they're well-fed and not bothered by natural predators.]]



** The [[ComicBook/TheWalkingDead original comic]] has the campsite thing, along with the survivors setting up shop in an apparently abandoned, gated subdivision. Very temporarily.

* In ''Film/DawnOfTheDead'' and [[Film/DawnOfTheDead2004 its remake]], the characters begin the film believing that a mall is the perfect hiding place, but later discover they cannot stay there forever because eventually they're going to run out of food.

* In ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'', the orphans must send a message that "The Last Safe Place is safe no more". Given [[CrapsackWorld the kind of world they live in]], it should come as no surprise that the Hotel Denouement wasn't all that safe to begin with.

* In the second Percy Jackson book, ''[[PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters]]'', [[spoiler:Camp Half Blood]] is "no longer safe" because someone has poisoned Thalia's pine tree, which usually keeps the camp safe from outside monsters. However, the camp was never safe from anyone on the inside who wanted to hurt anyone else on the inside, as demonstrated by the ending of the first book.

** In the [[VideoGame/TheWalkingDead video game]], the characters set up camp in a barricaded motor inn, which to be fair actually does look safe...for about fifteen minutes until the power goes out. Despite the ever-increasing number of walkers and bandits, whether to stay the winter or move on becomes a major argument.

Either maintain security and hope for some unexpected food source to emerge, or leave the (relative) security of the Inn in search of a different place ''and'' an unexpected food source.

* In at least two of the ''Film/HarryPotter'' films (''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'' and ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire''), different characters state outright that "Hogwarts isn't safe anymore", which naturally leads to the question "When the hell was Hogwarts ever safe?" Later in the series, during ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince Half-Blood Prince]]'', Harry actually says, "This is Hogwarts we're talking about. It's Dumbledore. What could be safer?" as if he hadn't been living through the previous five years. Hogwarts has been the site of murders and violence, the framing of innocents along with the permanent derailment of their careers, the attempted wrongful execution of the innocent, and the near deaths of many characters.

** Of course, most of the time the reason of Hogwarts's unsafeness is because Voldemort is targeting it. Usually because something he wants is there. And it's there ''because'' Hogwarts is the safest place, which makes it a self-defeating safety (quite like in ''PanicRoom'' where said room turns out dangerous because what the intruders want is inside).
