* In ''FriendshipIsWitchcraft'', Twilight Sparkle is banned from all bounce houses in the aftermath of a waffle-making incident. Twilight insists [[NeverMyFault it wasn't her fault]]--it would have worked if Spike didn't have such a weak grip.

* In the world of pinball, Kevin Kulek attempted to sell pinball machines themed on the ''Film/{{Predator}}'' films without getting permission from Fox. When the buyers and other pinball fans found out about this and they called him out on it, Kulek was completely unapologetic about it, [[BlatantLies playing naive]] about everything from not understanding how rights work (thinking that permission consists simply of sending a letter and waiting for them to say yes back) to the definition of a "non-profit company" (thinking that it means any company that is not profiting). Combined with his reputation as a BadBoss by the people who worked with him (with every single one walking out due to disagreements with him, Kulek being the only person left in his company by the time people discovered he was using the ''Predator'' name illegally), the result is that every pinball manufacturer has agreed not to ever hire Kulek, and every convention and pinball show will not bring Kulek as a guest. As there is a lawsuit pending comprised of the people who lost thousands of dollars preordering ''Predator'' machines from him, his life in pinblal is most likely over.

* UsefulNotes/MajorLeagueBaseball maintains a list of "permanently ineligible" people who are not allowed to have business associations with MLB or any of its affiliates (teams, minor leagues, Baseball Hall of Fame, current players via acting as their agents, etc.) - it's commonly known as a "lifetime ban", though that's not strictly accurate since the ban can last less than a lifetime (the Commissioner can reinstate them) or beyond death (in the case of Hall of Fame eligibility). The two most notable players who are currently on this list are "Shoeless" Joe Jackson (for his involvement in the 1919 Black Sox Scandal - he died in 1951 but still cannot be enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame because of the ban) and all-time hits leader Pete Rose (for betting on baseball games while he was a player or player-manager for the Cincinnati Reds; Rose maintains he always bet on the Reds to win and the 1989 Dowd Report that brought about the ban found no evidence that Rose ever bet against the Reds, but Rule 21 makes no distinction about on whom the bet is placed - the act of betting at all on a game the bettor is involved in is grounds for a ban).

* Likewise in it's predecessor, ''VideoGame/FallOut3'', you're character is banned from Vault 101 following the events at the start of the game. You're allowed to return only ''once'' in a quest that begs for your help because things have grown out of control since you left. After you resolve that issue, you're then banned again from ever returning. It's only during that quest, you're given the option of sabotaging the Vault's water chip, and forcing the entire vault to evacuate for their own safety.

* In the ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' episode "Scratch 'N' Sniff", the ''Moya'' crew end up being permanently banned from the PleasurePlanet [=LoMo=]. Although since the events that led to the outbreak of violence that caused the ban involved a local gangster trying to kill one of the two female crew-members and to sell the other as a SexSlave, they didn't really want to go back. Of course, it's left ambiguous rather all of that actually happened or if they just got drunk and started a riot; Pilot believes the latter after poking a number of holes in the story.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'', historical Get of Fenris attacks on caerns have soured relationships with the septs that oversee those caerns. Get of Fenris are banned outright from the Black Furies' Miria caern, frequently unable to open moon bridges to the Silent Strider's Wheel of Ptah caern, and on unfriendly terms with the Fianna sept that controls the Tri-Spiral caern. For this reason, Get can encounter problems when trying to travel around the world via moon bridges.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'' episode "Banned From the Stand" featured Mung Daal being [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin banned from Gazpacho's fruit stand]] simply because Mung disagreed with him on what shade of green Flossberries turns your teeth. Mung can't simply buy fruits from another stand because the fruit stand owner code allows Gazpacho to extend the ban to the other fruit stands in Marzipan City, and Gazpacho declares Mung would get no more fruit until he admits he's right. After Mung tried (and failed) to buy fruits under several disguises, Gazpacho became so paranoid he banned everyone... even ''himself''. Because being banned from a stand last for as long as the stand remains, his only way out was destroying the stand and building a new one, from which [[spoiler:Mung got himself banned after repeating what got him banned from the first one]].
