* 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 Music/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.

* The ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'': the [[BadFuture Epilogue timeline]] has the Sky Ocean, the one good place in all of Discord's [[CrapsackWorld Crapsack]] VillainWorld... and the Sea Ponies don't even realize this, as they've been fed such a [[WrittenByTheWinners twisted version of history]] that they see him as a benevolent and caring ruler, rather than an EvilOverlord who only keeps them around because he enjoys their music ([[SadisticChoice and so the constant threat of wiping them out will force Traitor Dash to carry out his worst orders]]).

** When Prince Blueblood was a child, he was kept secluded in the castle and not allowed to go outside and play with others. This was part of the reason why he grew up to be an anti-social jerk.

* Toriel in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' does this to the player character. At first, she is overjoyed to have you in her home and was looking forward to raising you as her own child and preparing a curriculum for your education. She even has a room ready for you and it's already furnished with toys, a desk, and a bed. [[spoiler: Her mood sours when you try to leave and she warns you several times to go back to your room while she destroys the only exit leading out of the Ruins. Following her to the very end of the hall forces you to fight her to prove that you are strong enough to survive on your own. If you spare Toriel peacefully, she apologizes for trying to keep you trapped and lets you go with a FinalFirstHug while asking you not to come back.]]

** [[VideoGame/MassEffect3 The next game]] also reveals [[spoiler: that the ''Normandy'' had mechanisms so that Cerberus could take control of it remotely if Shepard tried to leave. Fortunately, by the time that became an issue, EDI had been unshackled and shut those protocols down. The last time Cerberus tried to activate them, she flooded their servers with seven zettabytes of porn.]]
