* Starting any ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' adventure in prison seems to be the default. Apparently it's the sort of world where Ex-Cons really do have a chance a rehabilitation....
** ''Skyrim'' has a second prison episode as well - when you first enter Markarth you get to witness an innocent woman (potentially - you can stop it if you're quick) being murdered in the middle of a crowded city square. If you work with a local miner to investigate, the corrupt guards eventually pin the murder on you and throw you in prison. You're [[PlotTunnel stuck in there]] until you find a way to escape. Aside from this, committing a crime anywhere in the game and getting caught always has a chance of getting you sent to jail.

* Starting any ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' adventure ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Each game
in the main series (except for ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'') starts the PlayerCharacter off as a prisoner. Escaping or being released is usually part of the tutorial, before the game [[OpeningTheSandbox Opens The Sandbox]].
** If you commit a crime and then speak to a guard, you have the options of paying a fine, going to jail, or resisting arrest. Choosing to go to jail, depending on the game, either has an amount of time pass based on the size of your bounty or literally puts you in a jail cell with the options to try to escape or sleep in the bed to serve your sentence. In each case save for escape, one of your skills will randomly decrease as part of the punishment. (Simulating not using it due to being in jail.)
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' has a mission during the main quest to break ''into'' the [[TheAlcatraz Ministry of Truth]], the [[CorruptChurch Tribunal Temple]]'s maximum security
prison seems for blasphemers and heretics, in order to be rescue a friend who is imprisoned there. The prison is built into a [[FloatingContinent hollowed-out moonlet]] which hovers over Vivec City, requiring levitation to reach. There, you must sneak past or fight through scores of the default. Apparently it's Temple's elite [[ChurchPolice Ordinators]] to bring your friend the sort of world where Ex-Cons really do have a chance a rehabilitation....
