* This happens in one episode of ''Manga/{{Golgo13}}''. Duke Togo allows himself to be arrested so he'll end up in the same ludicrously high-security prison as his target, a crook whose old companions are worried about spilling the beans on them. Needless to say, escaping a prison that makes Alcatraz look like a cardboard box is no problem for Golgo 13!
