* Invoking this trope is commonly recommended for ''VideoGame/EvilGenius'' players who wish to hire [[StuffBlowingUp Red Ivan]]. Since every one of his weapons is explosive, letting him engage low-level {{Red Shirt}}s usually results in a PyrrhicVictory for you as he blows up significant parts of your base along with your enemies. If you put him in a Topside Shack with a level 3 security door, he'll only be able to exit it if he has a direct order from the player.

** In RebuildOfEvangelion, [[spoiler:Eva-01 itself is sealed in an orbital Can shaped like a 3D-unfolded tesseract (it looks like a [[CreepyCoolCrosses cross]]). It penetrates the Can briefly to kill an enemy.]]

* This tends to pop up a lot in mythology or religion with the KingInTheMountain legend. [[Literature/TheBible Jesus Christ]] will show up on Judgment Day with an impact that will split a mountain before he starts slaughtering the unbelievers. KingArthur is slumbering in Avalon until England needs him most, Charlemagne will someday return to help Europe, Frederick Barbarossa's beard is wrapping around some table somewhere counting the days till he saves Germany, Denmark has Holger Danske sleeping in the catacombs under Kronborg (Elsinore), and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking America has Walt Disney on ice]]. There is also the Filipino-Spanish mixup of Bernardo del Carpio.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Lapis Lazuli functions as this in "Mirror Gem" and "Ocean Gem". She is introduced as a cracked gem powering a magic mirror of knowledge. In this state, she is harmless, only able to communicate with pre-recorded sound bytes the mirror has already been exposed to. After [[spoiler: she's freed, she turns out to be an ''extremely'' powerful and just as emotionally unstable hydrokinetic who, even in her damaged state, can easily hold her own against the Crystal Gems, and can even use Earth's oceans to construct a giant tower into space. Once her Gem is healed by Steven, she becomes even more powerful and regains her emotional stability, displaying the ability to generate water from her gem (on her spine) to create a set of functional wings to fly with. She's currently pulling double-duty as this trope and SealedEvilInADuel, the evil being Jasper, by tricking Jasper into forming Malachite with her and then using her hydrokinesis to trap Jasper at the bottom of the ocean by literally using the weight of Earth's oceans to hold Malachite in place]].

** Then again, there are so many examples of this trope in the Nippon Ichi universe, but almost all of them pale in comparison to [[spoiler:[[TomatoInTheMirror the REAL]] Overlord Zenon from ''VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories'', who slaughtered [[OneManArmy 99 Overlords and 1000 Demon Lords.]] [[CurbStompBattle IN A SINGLE NIGHT.]]]] Though technically, [[spoiler:s]]he's more on the [[SealedEvilInACan evil]] kind.

* This is why France exiled {{Napoleon|Bonaparte}} to Elba and then to St. Helena, rather than just killing him outright. They wanted the option to open the can in case a foreign power posed a threat to France in the future.

* ''Film/{{Nightbreed}}''. Early in Boon's introduction to the Breed, he finds that the hall to Baphomet's chamber is lined on either side by locked cells containing Berserkers: Breed who are mindless and deformed (even for monsters), but who's strength is unparalleled. During the climax of the movie, Mideon is falling apart, fires are raging through the cemetery, and the Breed are being slaughtered by gun-toting humans. Lylsburg uses his last moments alive to unlock ALL the doors and drive away the invading humans.
