* In the season 4 finale of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', Zachariah and the other angels detain Dean in one of these to keep him from getting himself killed [[spoiler:since he's one of the only people suitable to host the Archangel Michael]] and to prevent him from [[spoiler:stopping Lucifer's escape]]. It's a lavish and opulent room stocked with Dean's favorite beer and the best burgers he remembers eating from his childhood; the angels even [[KissMeImVirtual offer him Ginger and Mary Ann]] from ''Series/GilligansIsland'' because [[PerverseSexualLust Dean has always had a thing for them]], but he passes. In a moment of helpless despair, Dean almost gives in and tries to drink one of the beers [[spoiler:right before Castiel breaks him out.]]

* In ''VisualNovel/MysticMessenger'', some of the routes have the main character being kept in one place for her own protection from one thing or another. It is most prevalent in [[spoiler:Jumin's route]], but [[spoiler:the bomb trapping MC in Rika's apartment also counts, and Zen's first bad ending may count depending on interpretation.]]

* The phrase is dropped in the opera of Music/{{Voltaire}}'s ''Literature/{{Candide}}'': "Harsh necessity brought me to this gilded cage -- born to higher things, here I droop my wings... Singing of a sorrow [[TemptingFate nothing can assuage.]]" (But it turns out that Cunegonde rather likes her gilded cage a lot more than she lets on!)

** The epilogue has an interesting variant: after [[spoiler:Shen [[SparedByTheAdaptation survives his canon ending]] and returns to Lianne (who's become his wife and expectant with his child), he's made by her to stay inside the borders of the Shan Palace (her birth home) where the knowledge of his survival would be kept secret from all of China. She does this because handing him over to China's authorities would mean either his execution or imprisonment for life and she cannot swallow the thought of losing him again. Eventually Shen concedes to this new life: even if his liberty has been limited, he can still live with his wife and child]].
