Also see: TrappedInContainment. Quite likely to result in FailsafeFailure or DidntSeeThatComing if the plot demands whatever is in [=lockdown=] escapes. [[IThoughtItMeant Has nothing to do with]] a certain [[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated Cybertronian bounty hunter]]. Often the preface for a BottleEpisode.

A location is isolated by means of locking every door/window/refrigerator/[[AirVentPassageway air vent]]/other entrance in the area so that no one can get in or out of the building. For the medical cases surrounding this, it is a quarantine. Armed guards may also be posted, depending on whether or not the military is involved.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''
** In "Killer", a derelict spacecraft is put into lockdown, but the corpse of the pilot revives and attacks the doctor doing the autopsy, causing the others to break quarantine in their attempt to rescue him. They later realise this was planned as the corpse has cybernetic components and a SyntheticPlague sent by an alien race to infect humanity.
** In "Headhunter", [[MasterComputer Orac]] refuses to let Scorpio land or teleport to prevent the MonsterOfTheWeek from escaping. It responds by shutting down life support, so Avon overrides Orac's objects to rescue the crew, with inevitable consequences.

* The megastructures in ''Film/{{Dredd}}'' can be sealed off entirely by blast doors in case of nuclear war. This sets off the plot, in which Judges Dredd and Anderson are cut off inside Peachtrees and hunted down by the BigBad's drug gang, to prevent them leaving with an important prisoner.
