Possibly related to PeopleJars, although usually more benign. If the girl is dead, it may be a case of StuffedIntoTheFridge or DeadMansChest. See also PunkInTheTrunk. Often, as in the page image, she'll have been [[FetalPositionRebirth stored in the fetal position]], possibly [[NakedOnArrival naked]].

* Hako-chan (literally "Box-chan"), from ''SoraWoKakeruShoujo''. Her appearance is still mostly unknown due to [[spoiler:her not leaving the box yet]], though we do learn that [[spoiler:she has light skin. There was one point where she almost came out, but then [[TheDragon Aleida]] convinced her that staying in the box was better because "being in the outside world is worse than being in the box".]] Admittedly, it does seem to be a pretty nice box: it has some sort of camera system allowing view outside, though not from outside in, and [[TalkingWithSigns text can be displayed on the door]] of the box like it's a computer screen. Also, it apparently has some sort of hovering/movement device.

* Generally speaking, rather common in Japanese media. It's fallen out of favor somewhat in recent times, however, largely due to [[DeadHorseTrope over-use]].

* GaiaOnline has the Sentinel, a demigoddess who accidentally cursed herself into a box to be tortured by demons for a thousand years... and [[NiceJobBreakingItHero was released by Gaians looking for rare items]], [[AxCrazy crazier than ever]]. By the same token, we have her counterpart the Overseer, Boy in a Clam.

* This is how Ibuki meets his first CatGirl, Mikan, in ''Let's Meow Meow''. She is curled up, naked, and sleeping in a cardboard box on the street which he happens to stumble upon on the way home. His response? "I was expecting to see a kitten. [[IgnoreTheFanservice How disappointing]]." Let me remind you that this guy specifically wished on the Cat God to have his own catgirl and he has a catgirl fetish.
** To be fair, he initially assumes that was a dream and she a crazy homeless girl in a cosplay outfit.



* NekoPara: TWO catgirls in two boxes! They're the protagonist's stepsisters.

Sadly, Arthur catches him and you recruit her instead.

* ''MsMarvel'' once featured a plot arc where The {{Puppetmaster}} was collecting superheroines, [[BrainwashedAndCrazy mind-controlling]] them and then selling them. He had teams out catching the women, and they would be shipped to his South American headquarters inside wooden crates.
