Unfortunately, even in RealLife restraining orders work on the honor system (think of it like the [[http://www.angelfire.com/geek/sarabowie/forwards/amish.html Amish computer virus]]). A restraining order cannot physically separate one person from another (unless the offender is fitted with an electronic implant that delievers traumatic shocks whenever he or she gets too close, but that's usually only in futuristic or dystopian stories - or, more realistically, an [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ankle_monitor ankle monitor]] used for [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_tagging electronic tagging]], which [[RealityIsUnrealistic has often happened]]); it just means the other person can call the police and have them arrested on sight if they're violating it. Also while restraining orders in TV usually require the person to maintain a minimum distance from another, in reality restraining orders usually order the person to refrain from contacting, harassing, following or stalking the other person, something that often doesn't deter a determined stalker.

* In ''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/8462437/chapters/24259287 This Gonna Be Good]]'' Harri gets one against Dumbledore. If he comes closer than fifty feet, the magic involved will physically push him away.

* [[Series/{{Psych}} Shawn]] claims to having one of these in [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5713983/1/Carltons_Worst_Inhibitions Carlton's Worst Inhibitions.]] It's probably not true. Probably.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', Squidward gets a restraining order against [=SpongeBob=]. This causes much difficulty due to the fact that they work the same shift at the Krusty Krab and have to interact with each other to get anything done during working hours (rearranging the shift schedule so that they don't have to work the same shift is never brought up as a solution, as that would make sense).

* In "You remind me of a car" by ProfessorElemental the object of the professor's affections seems to somehow both have a restraining order against him (requiring him to sing the song through a megaphone) ''and'' not know who he is.

So you've slapped your StalkerWithACrush with a restraining order? Guess what -- it won't do a thing to protect you. It just encourages your stalker to get creative (for instance, getting a helicopter license.) So you're a HeroicComedicSociopath who's been told [[PersonaNonGrata never to go in that bar again]] (don't ask -- it involved [[NoodleIncident noodles]])? You'll be shot on site if you go anywhere near it.
