* At the halfway point of ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'', Kid is taken from your party and disappears for the remainder of the game (unless you count her dark doppelganger, [[spoiler:harle]]). She turns up during the final battle inside a crystal, which is actually the backside of the Time Devourer. Freeing Kid without killing her is how you unlock the GoldenEnding.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': Five years before the game begins, [[spoiler:Cloud confronts Sephiroth at the Nibelheim power reactor when the latter returns to retrieve Jenova. Thanks to Cloud mortally wounding him,]] Sephiroth tumbled off the catwalk and fell into the Mako pool below the reactor, eventually winding up in the Lifestream. In the present, [[spoiler:Cloud and his party chase "Sephiroth" across the planet, unaware it is Jenova imitating his appearance; the real]] Sephiroth is frozen in a block of Mako, having drifted to the North Crater during his travels.
** Perhaps it's a family trait - his mother, [[spoiler: Lucrecia Crescent]], is ''also'' frozen in crystal in a hidden cave on the Western Continent. [[spoiler: But she's there by choice in atonement for her willing participation in Hojo's experiments.]]

** In the Asgard saga, there's an ''extremely'' nasty version. The God Warrior of the Megrez Delta star, Alberich, can summon the "Amethyst Shield" --an attack that sends shards of amethyst flying from his body and towards the enemy, encasing him/her in a shell of translucent gemstone. If they're not freed, victims will be robbed of their LifeEnergy, and eventually become skeletons trapped in amethyst. And the only way to really free them is to kill Alberich himself. [[spoiler: That ''almost'' happens to Marin and later Seiya, and Shiryu has to save them both via fighting Alberich to the death.]]
