* ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheCuriousVillage'' has [[spoiler: the daughter of the Baron who owned the eponymous village living in a tower, and the heroes eventually rescue her at the game's ending. This is something of a twist on the trope, however, because she's not imprisoned up there -- she can leave the tower whenever she pleases, and in fact is seen doing so (though the heroes don't know who she is at the time). She just can't leave [[GildedCage the village]]]].

* RecycledInSpace in the ''Series/BlakesSeven'' episode "Hostage". The titular hostage is a former LoveInterest of Blake being held prisoner by his ArchEnemy Travis. In this case it's a derelict communications tower on top of the cliff face of a BBCQuarry. Unfortunately due to the low budget of this sci-fi series we only see the tower in a distant shot, plus a studio interior.

* Astra in ''VideoGame/StarStealingPrince''; the game kicks off when Prince Snowe learns of her existence and sets off on his own to rescue her. [[spoiler: Within Snowe's dream, Dream Astra is one too. It's not necessary to save her to finish the game, but doing so leads to the GoodEnding, while [[DownerEnding not doing so...]]]]

]]]] Ironically, one of the people who put her in the tower, [[spoiler:Lina]] was also an example of this in her backstory [[spoiler:due to a prophecy foretelling that her child (Snowe) would destroy the world.]]

* Also happened to the so-called 'Princes in the Tower', the sons of Edward IV of England: 12 year old Edward V, and his little brother, Richard of Shrewsbury, Duke of York, who were placed in the Tower of London by Richard, Duke of Gloucester, Lord Protector, who promptly usurped the throne and became Richard III. They were, nominally at least, under his protection, and occupied this position. Shortly after, however, the boys vanished, and despite the claims of pretenders Lambert Simnel and Perkin Warbeck, were widely accepted to be dead. 120 years of Tudor propaganda, including a [[Theatre/RichardIII play or two]], ensured that Richard III was remembered as their murderer - or at the very least, the man who ordered their deaths. Which, to be fair, he probably was: he was the one with the most to gain and because they vanished without a trace from the most secure fortress in the country, one staffed by Richard's trusted men, and they were supposedly under Richard's protection (meaning that he was at least critically negligent).

Added DiffLines:

** Taken UpToEleven in ''VideoGame/KingsQuest2015'' ''Chapter 3'', which retells the end of ''King's Quest II'' where Graham finds Valanice in a tower. Only this time, there are ''two'' girls in the tower, and Graham becomes trapped there as well when it turns out that he rushed off to find his true love in the tower without thinking of how to actually rescue them. It turns out that [[spoiler:Hagatha, who was the original girl in this tower, ]] was invoking this trope by [[spoiler:capturing maidens and imprisoning them in the tower in an attempt to get someone to come rescue them all, since she thought she was too ugly for anyone to want to save her by herself. In the end, Graham ends up freeing them all and marries one of the two girls who reveals her name to be "Valanice", though the other girl ends up back in the tower by the events of ''Chapter 4''.]]
