* This trope is not as common in Creator/RoaldDahl's books as one might think, but Sophie from ''Literature/TheBFG'' used to live in one of these. And the treatment that [[Literature/JamesAndTheGiantPeach James Henry Trotter]] gets from his aunts is pretty much equal to it.

* This trope is not as common in Creator/RoaldDahl's books as one might think, but books:
** ''Literature/TheBFG'':
Sophie from ''Literature/TheBFG'' used to live is living in one of these. And at the beginning, before she is carried away by the Big Friendly Giant.
** ''Literature/JamesAndTheGiantPeach'': The orphaned James Henry Trotter lives with his aunts, but
the treatment that [[Literature/JamesAndTheGiantPeach James Henry Trotter]] he gets from his aunts them is pretty much equal to it.

* ''DarkMatter'': The Orphanage where Five grew up hasn't been described in any detail yet, but kids don't run away from such homes to try and survive alone on the streets at age 12 for no reason. And even without any conscious memories of the place, her reaction to the plan of having her sent to a group home after [[spoiler: the rest of the crew of the Raza was arrested and thrown into prison]] was basically: "I'd rather go to (adult, high security) prison instead."

* Dr. Bumby's Home For Wayward Children in ''Videogame/AliceMadnessReturns'' has to be the worst "orphanage" in videogame history. In a normal OrphanageOfFear the kids get nglected, emotionally abused, beaten, and probably half-starved. Here, their caretaker and therapist [[spoiler: brainwashes them and then pimps them as child prostitutes.]] And not even very secretly. The little plaque says it all: "Earn Your Keep."

* As we learned from ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' episode "The Chipette Story", Brittany, Jeanette, and Eleanor spend their early life days in this trope in Australia with their best friend Olivia. In this orphanage, the caretaker Miss Grudge would try to force some of the orphans to sing to make more money, but they all have rotten singing voices. When Olivia is lucky enough to be adopted, Grudge kidnaps and locks the Chipettes away so she won't be able to take them with her, intending to make money off the three little chipmunk girls. They barely manage to escape and then hide in a ship sailing to the USA...

* ''Literature/EscapeToWitchMountain'' by Alexander Key The place Tony and Tia were sent to after Grandma Malone died was more reformatory than the Disney Orphanage in the movie. They are sent there because of the various minor offences they had committed out of innocence. Tia had a habit of opening locked doors to save animals she hear crying out for help for example. Tony can not make her understand why that is wrong, and since she is mute the adults think she defiant. This continues as Tia opens the locked library at the reformatory.
