* Apparently, ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has one where people aren't allowed on the streets at certain times (though this was only shown in "The Ghost of Maiden's Peak"). It was because of this that an [[OutOfCharacterMoment uncharacteristically strict]] Nurse Joy wouldn't let Ash go out and save Brook from the Maiden's ghost.

** Similarly certain holidays (again, depending on state law) are considered "silent" and you cannot have any type of festivity involving song and dance on those days. In practice this means there won't be commercial parties, but private parties will only get into problems if they have excessive noise. As all of those holidays are religious and it is worded as a "dance prohibition", atheist secular and civil liberties groups have taken to holding dance-ins on those days.

* While not quite the same, the effect of the concept known in German as ''Sperrstunde'' is similar. It dictates an hour after which bars (and in some cases discos) have to be closed. Nothing is keeping you from being out and about after this hour, but you really don't have any place to go. Most German cities have greatly reduced the effect of this rule by creating more and more exceptions or gotten rid of it altogether. Some have a nominal one where e.g. fast food restaurants have to close for an hour ("cleaning hour") before they can reopen. However, the whole issue still differs between each of TheSixteenLandsOfGermany.

Curfews are a good early sign that a government is controlling people's lives, so they're useful as a sign of benign government turning into a cruel regime. Narratively speaking, the authorities can say that someone is a rebel just for being about, and mean characters can fight in major urban areas without risking innocent lives.

* In some states, the laws for new drivers under 18 often include a curfew, usually 11 PM or midnight. Though there are exceptions made for those driving because of emergencies, school/religious functions, or because they are licensed [=EMTs=].
** In some of ''those'' states, there's also an exemption for kids who have jobs, as long as they get their parent(s) and boss to sign a waiver.

* Dressrosa in ''OnePiece'' had a curfew implemented when Doflamingo usurped the throne 10 years ago. The exact reason is not known yet, but it seems to be related to another law that forbids humans and LivingToys to enter each others' houses, so it may be more than just a strict law...

* In ''VideoGame/TheSims 3'', there's a curfew for child and teen sims. When their curfew is up, child sims will automatically head home or to the nearest adult family member. Teen sims can stay out past curfew and sometimes they even get the desire to do so. If they stay out long enough, a police officer will show up to take them home, where they will be scolded by an adult member of their family. Teen and child sims are not considered out after curfew if they're accompanied by an adult member of their family.
