** King's Landing has cells of increasing Hellholines as you go down. First you have regular, run-of-the-mill castle dungeons for common prisoners, with common cells lit by small windows. Next there's individual, windowless and torch-lit cells for noble prisoners. The third level down, the Black Cells, has very little light and solid doors that ensure the cells are absolutely pitch-black. They have no beds and no buckets for waste, ensuring the bedding is always filth with bodily waste and pests, and are reserved for the vilest criminals and traitors whom the crown wants to lock away permanently or to break psychologically. The fourth level is for torture, and is said to be best crossed in the darkness, to avoid having to see what's down there. Cersei makes all this even worse by giving a MadDoctor/ {{Necromancer}} the run of them.

* The Eyrie in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has cells with three walls and slightly sloped floors, presided over by a sadistic brute. Where the fourth wall would be is empty space over a several hundred foot drop. When Tyrion angers his captor she commands that he be sent back to a cell with a more steeply sloped floor.
** Sweetsisterr has cells that are halfway below high tide, so the prisoner has to keep their head above water and gets drenched.

** In ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare Advanced Warfare]]'', There's the [[spoiler: Atlas]] Prison Camp in the level Captured. As you and your captured team are marched through, you witness guards beating up prisoners, locking them up in tiny metal boxes they can't even stand up in, and even worse, [[spoiler: subjecting prisoners to gruesome medical experimentation for Atlas's superweapon Manticore.]] Needless to say, this is practically a [[MoralEventHorizon curbstomp the]] [[KickTheDog dog]] moment for [[spoiler: Johnathan Irons and Atlas]].

** In ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare Advanced Warfare]]'', There's the The [[spoiler: Atlas]] Prison Camp in the level Captured. Captured is a high-tech example of this. As you and your captured team are marched through, you witness guards with powered exoskeletons tossing around and beating up prisoners, locking them executing prisoners in a trench by the mass, prisoners locked up in tiny metal boxes they can't even stand up in, in or chained to a post to bake in the hot desert sun, and even worse, [[spoiler: subjecting prisoners to gruesome medical experimentation against their will for Atlas's superweapon Manticore.]] Needless to say, this is practically a [[MoralEventHorizon curbstomp the]] [[KickTheDog dog]] moment for an errant violation of]] [[UsefulNotes/TheLawsAndCustomsOfWar the Geneva Convention and Nuremberg Code,]] but since [[spoiler: Johnathan Irons Atlas is a PMC]] and Atlas]]. it's leader the [[BigBad Big Bad]], they can almost get away with it. [[spoiler: Provided that the world hasn't caught on to Atlas's ulterior motives until the 2nd half of the campaign.]]

* Impel Down in ''OnePiece'' may be the worst prison in fiction. The warden is a PoisonousPerson who is not at all averse to killing prisoners with his powers (and is one of the few characters who's handed Luffy his ass), and he has a staff of [[BadassNormal Badass Normals]] (including one [[TheStarscream Vice-Warden]] and devilish beasts and guards) under his command. There is also a literal evocation of hell, down to the horns on most of the higher staff. But the layout of the prison is the real nail in the coffin.
** It is ''so'' bad that it's ''literally'' called hell. Level One is Crimson Hell, where prisoners are forced to walk through fields of razor-sharp grass and trees, thus dyeing them red with their blood; Level Two is Wild Beast Hell where [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin wild beasts roam the floors]], and the prisoners are forced to flee from them; Level Three is Starvation Hell, a desert-like environment where prisoners are kept in a near-death state of starvation…and the sand on the level is from the prisoners that have succumbed to death; Level Four is Blazing Hell, where the prisoners are forced to labor and endure torture at boiling temperatures; Level Five is Freezing Hell, where the prisoners are kept in subzero temperatures with food practically inedible due to said temperatures; and Level Six is Eternal Hell, reserved only for the worst of the worst criminals, its existence unknown to the general public. The criminals on the lowest level are erased from history…but due to them being so powerful, it's the only level that's like a standard prison, as torture would be wasted on them.
*** So, when Luffy told Ace that YouAreWorthHell, he meant it.
*** In spite of the above, however, it's been shown that [[EvenEvilHasStandards even THEY have standards]]; former Chief Jailer Shiliew of the Rain was an AxCrazy maniac. As stated above, warden Magellan wasn't opposed to killing criminals, but he only did it if he was provoked. Shiliew went on rampages killing prisoners just out of sadistic pleasure, and it got so bad that Magellan locked him up in Level Six.
