* Except for [[TheAlcatraz The Birdcage]], this is all prisons in ''Literature/{{Worm}}''.
* In ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'', which is set in present-day France, Master Zen apparently was able to escape prison by digging a tunnel out [[spoiler:and was able to bring two fo his future guildmates from Relic Hunter guild along with him. Granted that Valentin's player was his cellmate, but they had to pick up Elyx's player in entire different part of the prison]].

''Literature/{{Worm}}''. Justified ''InUniverse'' by the immense media interest and popularity of some of the villains, as well as the need to keep enough Parahumans around in case of an Endbringer attack.

* Januar Ein from ''Manga/{{Senyuu}}'' easily could have broken out of prison, [[spoiler: which he got sent to for accidentally destroying a café]], but he didn't.

* Though it's not actually pointed out, apparently the jails in ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'''s Cape Suzette are far from secure. Several minor villains reappear later, notably Buffy and Muffy Vanderschmere, who, despite being caught as con artists and hijackers, show up in the background apparently up to their old tricks again.

* The Plumbers' Headquarters in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' is absolutely terrible at keeping its prisonners under lock, despite being an underground base with advanced technology and several super-powered, trained guards. Most villains who get arrested are back on the street usually one or two episodes later, and villain Khyber has been known to break in twice without even getting noticed.

** The prisons of the ''Lucky Luke'' comic, especially the penitentiary. [[TheGuardsMustBeCrazy The wardens are a bunch of incompetent morons]], their dog is even stupider than they are, and the prisoners, especially [[ArchEnemy the Daltons]], escape constantly, sometimes right after being brought back to jail. They even managed to accidentally free Joe Dalton once. ''When he didn't even want to get out''. This is subjected to frequent LampshadeHanging, to the point Luke gets sick of it in later albums.
** The ''Rantanplan'' spin-off even has an episode where people succeeded in ''kidnapping'' Averell Dalton without much problem. They don't just fail at preventing their prisoners from getting out, they also fail at keeping people from coming ''in'' to take their prisoners forcefully. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Joe is outraged by such a degree of ineffectiveness]].
** The same episode has Jack Dalton coming back to his cell and leaving again three times while one of the warden is still trying to close the hole from their last escape. The warden just let him take what he needs and go away, without even trying to stop him.

* In ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'', the Special Prison holds prisoners protected by national secrecy. However, for some reason, if the prison's generator is off-line, then ''all cells open automatically'', even though this means the bars have to slide up (i.e. this requires power). All the internal phones are knocked out as well.

* ''VideoGame/EdnaAndHarveyTheBreakout'': Zigzagged with the Asylum the player has to escape. On one hand, an average of three patients escape their cells per day. On another, none of them have so far made it past the walls surrounding the asylum.
