** ''Series/FinalFantasy'' loves this trope. ''Videogame/FinalFantasyVIII'' has, for example, the final fight against Ultimecia, in compressed time. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' has an entirely trippy sequence against [[OneWingedAngel Kefka]], and of course you then have [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyV Exdeath.]] Even the ''player'' can join in on this, with the well-documented [[GoodBadBugs Vanish/Doom trick.]]

* ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'' The Voidlands is a hellish landscape where the spirits of Pokemon turned into stone are sent. The only exit is an upside-down mountain that corresponds to the Pokemon world's Reverse Mountain that has a water spring that can undo petrification.

The name comes from an alternate dimension in {{the DCU}}, where Krypton sent its condemned criminals; they didn't die, but they were almost completely unable to influence the world outside. [[SentencedToDownunder Much like]] {{UsefulNotes/Australia}}.

* The Field of Shadow, also known as Zone of Darkness in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}''. It's a featureless, normally empty and pitch-dark pocket dimension attached to the Matoran Universe, but the [[BrotherhoodOfEvil Brotherhood of Makuta]] uses it to store away the [[{{Kaiju}} Zivon]] when they don't need it.

* 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.
