* 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 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.

* ''WesternAnimation/BuBumLaStradaVersoCasa'': In episode 20, Bu-Bum and a group of war orphans are forcefully taken from a red cross camp and placed in one of these. The place, a partly destroyed rundown building, is run by a group of very strict female soldiers who enforce an iron discipline, and the building houses an industrial laundromat where the orphans are put to work. Fortunately, thanks to Bu-Bums' animal friends, they are all able to escape and the place itself is burned to the ground.

* Cletus Kasady, the ''Franchise/SpiderMan'' villain better known as ComicBook/{{Carnage}} was dumped in one of these after he killed his father for killing his mother (or was it the other way around?). [[WhereIWasBornAndRazed He didn't take it very well]]. According to his own narrative in one comic, Kasady's father was sent to jail (and possibly executed) for murdering his mother, who was trying to kill Kasady. Of course, he testified ''against'' his dad to seal his fate, and the reason mummy wanted to kill him was because he was testing power tools on her poodle. The poor kid was then sent to live with his grandmother, whom he pushed down the stairs. Something suggests the orphanage was not exactly to blame. (Then again, he's an UnreliableNarrator.)

No one cares for you a smidge when you're living in an Orphanage of Fear. You will usually be presided over by gaunt, dour women--often [[NunTooHoly brutal nuns]]--with nasty sneers. Your chores are long, grueling and mandatory; toys and other amusements are strictly forbidden. You can expect to be spanked, smacked, and otherwise "punished" frequently; no matter what you do, you can't please the EvilOrphanageLady in charge. The food is usually unidentifiable, mushy, and foul-smelling if it's solid at all; you may have nothing to eat but thin, probably cold vegetable broth. You will be in bed by 8 and up by 5, and you will never, ever, ''ever'' be allowed to have ''any'' fun. Your only hope of escaping is either to get adopted, find your real parents (after all, they're probably [[HesJustHiding only hiding]]), or simply run away. Or [[WhereIWasBornAndRazed kill everyone/destroy the place]].
