* It is probably no surprise that the Creator/{{SNK}} game ''P.O.W: Prisoners of War'' features an escape from a POW camp as its first mission. Interestingly, this is actually a ploy; your character is actually an agent who was ordered to let himself be captured in order to infiltrate the enemy's base in order to assassinate their officers and destroy their armor and aircraft assets.

* Important to remember: [[UsefulNotes/TheLawsAndCustomsOfWar the Geneva Conventions are treaties that set standards for how [=PoW=]s are supposed to be treated]]. They haven't always been honored -- both in fiction and in RealLife. Camp guards have figured that it's NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught -- but if someone does get caught, it's SeriousBusiness of the "kiss your military career goodbye" variety. Similarly, most military members are taught that the first duty of any prisoner of war is to attempt to escape their captors and return to their unit. The more successful escape artists have figured that it's NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught -- but if someone does get caught, it's SeriousBusiness of the "kiss your freedom or even your life goodbye" variety.
