* ''VideoGame/TheEscapists'' is all about staging these. The prisons and their security range from [[CardboardPrison cardboard]] to TheAlcatraz (including the ''real'' Alcatraz, if you buy the DLC), with a couple POW camps thrown in for good measure. It runs on all the classic escape tropes too, with a heavy dose of [[RealityEnsues reality]] mixed in.

** In "The Borders of Infinity", Miles Vorkosigan is sent in to rescue one single man from a Cetagandan concentration camp. Finding that his intended rescuee is catatonic and dying, he opts to organize the escape of ''all 10,000 [=POWs=]''. In-universe, it's the ''third biggest mass breakout in recorded history''. And he sets the whole thing in motion while bare-ass naked, having been robbed of his clothes within moments of arriving at the camp. Miles Vorkosigan: a man to whom "Tries Too Hard" has no meaning.
** Years later, the Marilacans make a holovid drama about it called ''The Greatest Escape'', and try to hire Admiral Naismith (Vorkosigan's SecretIdentity) as a technical consultant.
