* As pictured, this happens to Elsa near the end of ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' after [[spoiler:Hans brings her back to the castle]]. Notably, it is ''her'' dungeon that she is locked in, as Elsa is the queen. [[spoiler:She escapes easily using her ice powers]]. The cuffs Elsa are shackled to look suspiciously like they were designed for her, which has caused much FridgeHorror at the idea that her parents made them for her. There was also a CutSong called "Life's Too Short (reprise)", which was a DarkReprise of both "Do You Want To Build A Snowman?" and the also-cut song "Life's Too Short", sung by Elsa in the dungeon and Anna [[spoiler:while she was freezing to death in the castle]].

* ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' subverts the concept of Dungeons. Some Hogwarts dungeons are classically dungeon-ey, and some serve as Potions classes (mind you, this setting is dangerous if the potions being brewed there may be explosive if not done correctly).
** Note that most RealLife high schools have the chemistry lab(s) on the ''uppermost'' floor of the building.

** Lord Vetinari, Patrician of Ankh-Morpork, uses the dungeons under the palace to great effect as a deterrent and, naturally, as a punishment.
** The Inquisitors of Om in Omnia, as described in "Small Gods," were employed to torture confessions out of alleged heretics. They did their work in the dungeons beneath the streets of Omnia. To the Inquisitors, though, it was just another job, not something done for pleasure or sadism.

** Lord Vetinari, Patrician of Ankh-Morpork, uses the dungeons under the palace to great effect as a deterrent and, naturally, as a punishment. \n However, as revealed in ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'', he has made certain preparations in the event that an usurper throws ''him'' into the dungeons. [[spoiler: The deepest, darkest dungeon has a door covered in chains, deadbolts and locks ... and they're all on the inside.]]
