** In an episode of the revived ''Doctor Who'', a stranded alien has been covertly living as a Welsh politician, and, even as she plots to [[spoiler: blow up the entire Earth to facilitate her escape]], grumbles that the London-based government wouldn't notice if UsefulNotes/{{Wales}} slid into the sea. She then immediately labels the moment as an example of this trope.

* In Series/{{Farscape}}, the Peacekeepers are so paranoid about this happening to their troops, that they consider ‘’anyone who even speaks to an alien without explicit authorization’’ to have become “irreversibly contaminated”. While this may seem like plain old Xenophobia at first, digging into the Peacekeepers’ past with the Eidelon “Peacemakers” reveals that these people were specifically engineered to be impartial enforcers who were never supposed to take sides in a conflict. Therefore, this extreme isolation was necessary for them to retain that impartiality.

** The Romans also pulled a version of this on any barbarian nations they subjugated, whereby they would take a few of the chieftains' sons as quasi-voluntary hostages, send them to Rome, and shower them with all the luxuries that TheEternalCity could offer. After being thoroughly schooled in the might and comfort of the Empire, they were sent home as loyal client kings. This backfired however, when one of them Arminius revolted against the Romans, and led the Germanic Tribes to inflict one of the worst defeats on the Empire, at the Battle of Teutoberg Forest.
