* Closed Space in ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', where giant ethereal beings known as Celestials rampage about destroying everything. No damage is reflected in the real world, but the Celestials still need to be destroyed in order to destroy the Closed Space and prevent TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

* Similarly, the Barriers in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', which works by displacing magic users into a contained Phantom Zone, though damages to the environment are still retained and need to be fixed by TheFederation afterwards. Useful in the first two seasons where the setting was the non-magical earth, so only the magical heroes would be trapped with the current threat. Nigh useless in the third season and beyond, where the setting is Mid-Childa [[EveryoneIsASuper where everyone is a magic-user]], including the {{Innocent Bystander}}s.

* In ''Film/{{Superman}}'', General Zod, Ursa and Non are imprisoned in the Phantom Zone by Jor-El. In ''SupermanII'', the Phantom Zone is shattered when Jor-El's son Kal-El (a.k.a. Superman) sends a terrorist hydrogen bomb into space to explode harmlessly, and the three Kryptonian super-criminals are freed to wreak havoc upon Earth.
** The ''{{Supergirl}}'' movie has the title character thrown into the Phantom Zone by her nemesis Selena using the power of the Omegahedron, which strips her of her powers in the process. Zaltar, who came to the Phantom Zone as a self-imposed exile for losing the Omegahedron in the first place, pulls a HeroicSacrifice to allow her to escape and regain her powers.
** Also referenced in ''Film/ManOfSteel'', in this story Zod and companions were on a ship intended for the Phantom Zone, but after the destruction of Krypton they were able to take the devise designed to send them to the zone, and make it a hyperdrive.

* The Bydo home dimension in [[RType R-Type]] is a PhantomZone of sorts, and, what with being inhabited by the Embodiment of Evil (the Bydo), is a very scary place. Often, the final levels of the games would take place in that dimension, which could get downright ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QYdOZ-b0Zw disturbing]]''.

* Item World from ''{{Disgaea}}'' series qualifies to a certain degree. While having somewhat realistic battlefields (with grass and trees and blocks and ''even graveyards'') and inhabitants (whom you fight, uh), these locations still float in colorful space and can only be quitted upon completing each ten floors or with the help of a specific item. ..Come on, it's up to a hundred floors of various sizes that exist ''inside'' equipable or non-equipable items! All the destuctions that take place (remember Laharl's meteor skill) are unseen and undamaging for anyone outside said worlds.
** ..As if it wasn't the same for any other location in ''{{Disgaea}}''.

* ''{{Series/Smallville}}'' Clark Kent visits the phantom zone three times. It is bleak wasteland, and inhabited by criminals (and phantoms) who are very dangerous. Phantoms who escaped from the zone are a recurring problem for Clark. On the other hand, Clark is able to banish some of his deadliest enemies to the phantom zone.
