* In ''SolInvictus'', Zoro would only take orders from Luffy. The other characters note that she seems to be the only one who can do it.

* At the start of ''Webcomic/CobwebAndStripes'', [[Film/{{Beetlejuice}} Betelgeuse]] is firmly tethered to Lydia and can't go very far from her.



* The Stark children's direwolves in ASongOfIceAndFire have grown up into ''extremely'' dangerous animals. All of them apart from, ironically, [[spoiler:Lady, who despite having never put a paw wrong, was ordered to be killed]], have had to be confined [[spoiler:or driven away, later to terrorise a country,]] at one time or another for everyone's safety. The worst offender was Shaggydog, who was nigh-uncontrollable, due to the kid being troubled four-year-old Rickon. But yet the wolves have also saved their owners' lives on several occasions.

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'': The Heterodyne family of serves as a family of [[PsychopathicManchild psychopathic]] {{mad scientist}}s with the leash to Castle Heterodyne.
** Agatha is one of the few any empathy, kindness, or respect for other humans. However, Agatha has to watch how she orders the Castle. It tends to interpret her orders... creatively.
** Agatha's father and uncle were the "Heterodyne Boys", heroic adventurer sparks who tried to help other people as well. This trope applies in several more cases, too--the Heterodynes had ''lots'' of servants to the line, including the Castle itself, the Jagers, and the people of Mechanicsburg. Agatha, through her mother's CompellingVoice, also has some degree of control over several of the geisterdamen, the slaver wasps and creatures, and anyone infected with the new slaver wasps.

* Lydia is this quite literally for Betelgeuse in the first several chapters of ''Webcomic/CobwebAndStripes''. He invokes an ancient magical law which changes his punishment from straight-up imprisonment to being bound to a mortal anchor, and invisible chains prevent him from moving far from her side.



* Lydia Deetz from the [[AnimatedAdaptation cartoon version]] of ''WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}'' is the only character who can keep the eponymous AntiHero under control. Of course, it also helps that saying "Beetlejuice" three times imprisons him as well as releases him, in case he gets too out-of-control.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'', the GrimReaper is forced to become the best friends of Mandy (a sociopathic CreepyChild) and Billy (who's dumber than pond scum).
* ''MinaAndTheCount''. Vampire mellows out for a little girl.

genuinely adores her and will (however reluctantly) behave himself if she asks.

TheKidWithTheRemoteControl, but with a twist: the controlled partner or servant is [[ShootTheDog pragmatic at best]], and [[HeroicComedicSociopath a raving loon at worst]]. The loyalty of the servant varies, but the typical example is essentially a portable version of SealedEvilInACan -- though a very loyal one is can be even creepier. The servant [[TokenEvilTeammate openly admits]] his opinion that the best way to deal with obstacles and enemies is [[MurderIsTheBestSolution through complete annihilation]]. The kid (who is usually younger) is the moral compass who has to keep it under control (with a little help from the RestrainingBolt), and more importantly not fall victim to temptation.

This is one of two things that can result from trying to control SealedEvilInACan. For the other, more cynical outcome, see EvilIsNotAToy. Compare GuardianEntity and MoralityChain; when the restraining is more emotional.

* The protagonist of ''SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'', who keeps [[OmnicidalManiac Omnicidal]] SociopathicHero Gig on a very short leash by having imprisoned Gig's soul inside his/her own body and extracting minuscule amounts of godly power from Gig as a form of lease for having him stay there. Gig, on his side, finds the protagonist repellently noble and constantly tries to goad the protagonist into doing acts of evil or tempting him into accepting more of his powers, which will grant Gig more control over the protagonist's body.

* Mike holds the leash of Vyvyan on ''TheYoungOnes''.
* At one point in ''TheGirlFromTomorrow'', one of the protagonists has the BigBad under control with a device that controls his every movement. Eventually he's trusted enough to go places - heavily guarded and with the device at the ready - and saves a boy from drowning in order to convince his master that he's undergone a HeelFaceTurn so he'll deactivate the device. It works, much to the distress of the title character, who doesn't buy it.
