* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', the Kuwadorian mansion where [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold 1967 Beatrice]] (Bice and Kinzo's daughter) lived fits this trope perfectly. Arguably, the meta-world itself also qualifies for Battler - the surroundings are implied to be quite nice.

* The titular {{Paul}} is held captive for 60 years but under conditions pleasant enough for him to not even realise that he's a prisoner. He gets to hob-nob with world leaders and cultural icons, even advising them regarding their works, and is supplied with weed that's apparently strong enough to have killed BobDylan. It's not until The Big Guy decides that Paul is more useful to her dead than alive that he realises that he wasn't a guest but a prisoner after all.

* Princess Shirahoshi from ''Manga/OnePiece'' lives in a comfortable luxury room, but leaving her room would put her in danger, since the AxCrazy Van der Decken IX. throws constantly giant axes at her that follow her wherever she is. The iron door of her room protects her from the axes, but it also seperates her from the outside world. Everything changes when she meets Luffy...

* In ''Literature/TheBeyonders'', Emperor Maldor makes good use of one of these. The Eternal Feast is a place where your every need is catered to and you are granted pleasures beyond your dreams. If someone becomes too bothersome and difficult to dispose of, he offers them a place there. Suffice it to say, few refuse and fewer ever manage to leave.

* Downplayed in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' in Chrom and Gaius's supports. They discuss this trope and Chrom implies that he'd rather be out with normal people than in Ylisse's castle, though he doesn't seem to be very bitter about it.
