-->'''Lister''': When I finally get round to writing my ''Good Psycho Guide'', this place is gonna get raves. Accommodation - excellent. Food - first class. Resident nutter - courteous and considerate. Psycho rating's gotta be four and a half chainsaws. Higher, maybe.

** Doflamingo's kingdom Dressrosa appears to be a bustling and happy place, but only because everyone who knows the truth about it is turned into a toy and forgotten by everyone. When the truth about the toys became revealed, Doflamingo turns it into a much worse prison, enveloping the entire island inside a cage to trap his subjects much more literally.

** The non-canon Film Gold takes this quite literally, as it takes place on a beautiful entertainment city-ship made entirely out of gold. However, the ruler ''Gild'' Tesoro intends for every visitor to lose their money by gambling and be forced to work for him on the ship, with his gold-controlling powers allowing him to control all of the visitors for good measure.

* In an episode of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', Janeway's Creator/LeonardoDaVinci holodeck program is "kidnapped" from the ship, and enlisted by Tau, an alien merchant, to design things for him. Janeway attempts to convince Leonardo she is freeing him from Tau's imprisonment. Leonardo, as an artist from Renaissance-era Italy, sees Tau as a wealthy patron with unlimited resources who lets him create to his heart's content, and insists "if this is a cage, it is a cage of gold!"

** In another episode, "Displaced," the entire ''Voyager'' crew is transported one-by-one off the ship and placed within a prison habitat environmentally-controlled to parameters that the alien kidnappers found would be a good fit for their crew. Afterwards, one of them shows up to tell them that they ought to be grateful...
-->'''Taleen''': I think you'll find there's nowhere to go.
-->'''Janeway''': We don't accept that. We will find a way out of here.
-->'''Taleen''': Captain, your lack of gratitude is unbecoming. You and your crew could have found yourselves somewhere far less hospitable.
-->'''Chakotay''': It's still a prison.
-->'''Taleen''': If you want to be miserable here, that is your choice. But since there's nothing you can do about your situation, I suggest you accept it. Gracefully.

* Elsa and her younger sister Anna from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' haven't left their home in over ten years at the start of the film. It's implied Elsa has barely left her ''room'' in that timespan. In Elsa's case it's partially self-imposed due to fear that her ice powers could harm people, while Anna is forced to stay a shut-in due to her sister. Their parents, the queen and king, were WellIntentionedExtremists who wanted the best for their kids but ended up just shutting them off from everyone. The movie kicks off when Elsa is forced to open her gilded cage on her coronation day. She tries to permanently close the castle's gates after an argument with Anna however Anna refuses. Their argument causes Elsa to reveal her powers to everyone, which makes her run away in fear.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'': You find Victini in a nice, cozy bedroom in the basement of an island lighthouse, where it's been for the last 200 years. It's suggested that the family who bought the land built the room as a place for Victini to hide in so it would be safe from those who would exploit its powers. After the player catches it, everyone agrees that it's safer in your hands.
