** In [[Recap/SupernaturalS02E22AllHellBreaksLoosePartTwo "All Hell Breaks Loose Part Two"]], Samuel Colt is revealed to have created a ''massive'' Devil's Trap made of churches and old-iron railway lines spanning 100 square-miles around a HellGate. No demon, no even the Yellow-Eyed Demon, can cross it. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, the army of released demons are able to break ''out'', apparently overwhelming the protection through shear numbers]].

* ''Stedding'' in ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' are zones of AntiMagic that also keep out the forces of darkness, providing safety against most forms of supernatural threat. They don't prevent mundane violence, but exude an ambient sense of peacefulness so that nobody wants to fight. On top of this, many of them are inhabited by Ogier, who hold to a strict nonviolence policy and enforce it for any visitors.
