* The cursed seals placed on members of the Hyuuga branch family in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', these act as a traditional restraining bolt in that they stop members of the branch family from harming (or in some cases thinking about harming) members of the head family, so that they remain a servant clan to the head family. And it also stops the devastating advanced bloodline of the Hyuuga family from getting into enemy hands, by sealing away the Byakugan when the wearer dies.

* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'': In Touma's right arm is Imagine Breaker, which [[AntiMagic cancels the effects of any magic, esper, and divine abilities]] it comes in contact with. It also passively cancels abilities that are indirect, such as telepathy and [[spoiler:a near-total reality wipe]]. It doesn't completely give him a pass, as on a few occasions he has had his arm lopped off (with magic) in an effort to stop Imagine Breaker.
** Aside from causing him heartache ("Such misfortune"), when it's not saving him from being electrocuted, the "restraining bolt" aspect of the power is that [[spoiler:Touma is hiding something powerful inside his right arm]].

* In the ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'' database entries for [[AxeCrazy SCP-076]] [[TheSociopath "Able"]], it is mentioned that during his time as captain of Mobile Task Force Omega-7, he was fitted with a fail-safe collar that would explode if he displayed aggression towards SCP personnel, temporarily killing him in the process. Unfortunately for the facility he was at and its staff, he got bored and angry and found a way to get the collar off...

* Clipping a bird's wings, thus removing their ability to fly.

* Clipping a bird's wings, thus removing their ability to fly. This isn't as barbaric as it may sound- it involves using scissors to cut the ends of a bird's flight feathers off, making it no more painful than a haircut. It's even recommended for pet birds that have been newly adopted, so that they can't fly away if they get startled while getting used to their new home.

* In the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'', it's all but stated outright that DarthWiki/DarthVader's cybernetic suit was intended to be one for Vader: It keeps him constantly fatigued[[note]]He can't live long without it, outside of special chambers that will sustain him for a couple of hours at a time, meaning Vader doesn't get much sleep[[/note]] and in pain, unable to summon his full Force powers. And the suit's external controls and lack of electrical/energy shielding means he's vulnerable to anyone who can get close enough (or to someone like The Emperor, who can throw lightning.)
