* Although ice is not usually considered a crystal, Snow of ''{{MAR}}'' evokes this trope by encasing herself in ice when she first appears, and the characters, good and evil, don't want to just bust the ice apart, possibly for fear of shattering her as well. They must find a fire ARM to melt the ice instead.

* In ComicBook/BlackestNight, a ''ComicBook/GreenLantern'' story, this is one of the methods the Star Sapphires (Violet Lanterns) use to recruit new members. The crystals they encase people in brainwash them to become more compassionate and compel them to join the Star Sapphires. A real mystery is that, as of the moment, the Star Sapphires are comprised only of women. They've trapped men before, but all have either broken free or were rescued by someone else.

* ''ComicBook/ContestOfChampions:'' In the third series, contestants that refuse to take part are held in crystals (which seem to correspond to the colour of the Infinity Gems, for whatever reason). Normally, it's impossible to escape them, but Ares manages. Once [[spoiler:The Maestro]] takes over the show, he throws these out in favour of using cells.

* 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.
