* In the Sabrina Gaiden of ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', when the title character begins to terrorize her hometown, some people try to escape, but they always run into her on the edges of the town.

* In Chuck Palahniuk's ''[[Literature/{{Haunted 2005}} Haunted: A Novel]]'', the cast of characters trap ''themselves'' in an isolated theater, each unwilling to leave until they're able to present themselves as the hero of the resulting news stories and RippedFromTheHeadlines movie.

* This is sort of assumed in many ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'' games, since anyone retaining 2 SAN would want to keep far away from the scary things players encounter. But if the players don't go investigate the horrors, there's no game.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* The setting of ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'', Free Country USA, pretty much exists in its' own little world. Any characters other than all the main ones are never seen in the area- only via pictures, audio, and the like. Animals and other assorted beings are rare, too. Relatives of the characters aren't really seen, and the whole place is pretty limited in ways to leave or enter. However, [[WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail Strong Bad does interact with people via e-mail quite frequently]], they have forms of local news, and packages from elsewhere have been known to drop out of the sky (as witnessed in ''[[VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople 8-Bit is Enough]]'').
** Though Strong Bad, and other characters, have gone on vacation during several cartoons, though we rarely see them actually ''on'' vacation.
** Then there was that time that Strong Bad and the Cheat got Homestar stuck on a chunk of ice floating near the Antarctic. [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext They're not quite sure how they did it]].

* ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' and its sequel ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'' are set on a cruise liner designed to flood after nine hours, and at an AbandonedWarehouse respectively, both converted to house a series of [[DeadlyGame Deadly Games]] intentionally designed to test the limits of [[WeAreStrugglingTogether group mentality]].

The third game, ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'', is set in a deliberately created ClosedCircle designed for an experiment, which the BigBad has modified to be even more [[DeadlyGame malicious]] than the first two.

Added DiffLines:

** Similarly enforced in ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite''. Instead of under the sea, Columbia is a city in the clouds, and Booker is sent there via a one-way [[ItMakesSenseInContext lightouse-rocket]], and it's just as inescapable. Any time he and Elizabeth devise a way to leave (mostly via the First Lady Airship) are thwarted by Elizabeth, the Vox Populi, Songbird, or some other external force. By the end of the game, Booker is basically begging Elizabeth to leave Columbia, but she refuses to go until Comstock is dead. [[spoiler: The PlayableEpilogue throws many, many wrenches into this plan, but also breaks the circle and takes the setting away from Columbia by going to various locations, including Rapture, both lighthouses, Wounded Knee, and Booker's office.]]
