Added DiffLines:

* Any prison was cardboard to the Serpent Society, at least when Sidewinder was in charge; one of the benefits of being a member was that he could rescue an imprisoned member via his ability to teleport himself and others. Being semi-retired at the time, it was the only condition for his personal involvement.

Added DiffLines:

* The juvenile maximum-security facility in [[Literature/CHERUBSeries Maximum Security]]. James escapes with a literal piece of cardboard, exploiting a real security flaw. The scary thing is, two guards who were in on it weren't actually needed, they were just there to guarantee success.

-->'''Robin:''' One of these days, we're finally going to discover just where the contractor used cardboard instead of concrete to build the prison walls so he could save a few bucks.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', the [[DishingOutDirt Earthbenders]] are imprisoned in a [[TailorMadePrison a metal prison ship in the middle of the ocean, so as to neutralize their bending]]. But in ''Film/TheLastAirbender'', this is changed to a prison camp. In a ''[[LockingMacGyverInTheStoreCupboard quarry]]'' Why they didn't break out in the first five minutes we'll never know. Once Aang [[ForgotAboutHisPowers reminds them that they were in fact Earthbenders and that this was, in fact, earth]], the prison doesn't last too long.

\n* ''Videogame/FallenLondon'': New Newgate is intended to be TheAlcatraz, what with being inside a massive stalactite with the zee below, only reachable through dirigible, but in practice it's this. All players start there, so ''everyone'' has escaped from it at least once, they can all keep escaping by just stowing away on a dirigible, they'd throw [[{{Golem}} Unfinished Men]] in there and not reinforce the bars so they can't just break them open, and they've got a candle-eating FaceStealer problem so huge you can bribe the guards with candles so they'll let you out early.

* Oflag IV-C in Colditz Castle during World War II was a strange case of being both this and an ''[[TheAlcatraz inescapable prison]]''. This is because, despite the fact that the castle itself was meant to keep prisoners in, the attitude of the guards were that it was the POW's duty to try to escape. This, combined with the fact that most of the prisoners here were sent here because they had previously tried to escape other POW camps meant that Colditz had one of the highest records of successful escape attempts for a Nazi POW camp. And, there were plenty who escaped from their original POW camps, but were caught before they could get out of Germany itself. Getting out of a prison barracks unnoticed is one thing, getting across an entire ''country'' or ''continent'' unnoticed is another.

This is because, despite the fact that the castle itself was meant to keep prisoners in, the attitude of the guards were that it was the POW's duty to try to escape. They had a gentleman's agreement that the guards would not go rough on the prisoners and in turn the prisoners would not harm any guards in their escape attempts.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'': As a result of their antics, the Warner siblings were locked away in the water tower on the Warner Bros. Studios lot, and allegedly hadn't escaped until the series premiere. However, it's shown in later episodes that not only were Yakko, Wakko, and Dot able to get out whenever they wanted, but were even let out more than once while the tower was being fumigated. Furthermore, similar to [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker The Joker's]] attitude towards Arkham, they view their so-called "prison" as their home, and always return to it willingly when they're done causing chaos.
