* A possible example in ''[[Literature/TheLaundrySeries The Rhesus Chart]]''. A powerful vampire sorcerer attacks the Laundry and Angleton (an EldritchAbomination SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan) apparently performs a HeroicSacrifice to stop him, but they NeverFoundTheBody as they're sealed inside a dome-shaped protection ward too powerful to even approach. Earlier another vampire had demonstrated the use of such a ward to keep his victims alive so they can be fed upon.

* In ''Film/DoctorStrange2016'', this is how [[spoiler:Strange convinces Dormammu to give up on conquering Earth. He enters the Dark Dimension and brings a time-loop spell with him that activates every time Dormammu kills him. Dormammu tells Strange that he can never win, and Strange responds that he doesn't have to. He can just keep losing forever and Dormammu can just keep defeating him forever, but Dormammu will never be able to do ''anything else'' for all eternity]].

* In the season 2 finale of ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'', this seems to be the fate of Goultard the Barbarian and Rushu, king of the Shushus, after the former drag his opponent back to his demonic realm. Indeed, the "Where Are They Now?" epilogue shows them still facing off through Igor the Shushu mirror.

Indeed, the "Where Are They Now?" epilogue shows them still facing off through Igor the Shushu mirror. This is then subverted in the specials, where it's revealed that Goultard ''eventually'' (within the span of [[TimeSkip six years]]) won hands-down, and [[HellHasNewManagement is living comfortable]].

* In the last few pages of ''Fanfic/Heartless'' before the author went to work on other stuff(Let it be temporary, let it be temporary) Drich was sealed in a pocket dimension with an incomplete Naruto Physicalgod Juubi, unlike most examples it's an unstable equilibrium but it just needs to last for long enough.

* Another example from Marvel - after [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Odin]] got KilledOffForReal in a battle with Asgard's arch-enemy Surtur, their battle continued on the doorstep of the afterlife. Every day Surtur tries to reach a part of his spirit that will allow him to revive in the real world, and every day Odin kills him and then dies from terrible wounds, just for their injuries to disappear by the next day, so that their struggle may continue until the end of time. [[BadAss Odin doesn't mind though]], seeing this fate as an atonement for his old misdeeds and mistakes.

* ''FreedomForce vs. The Third Reich'': Manbot and the Wraiths of Chaos.
* ''{{Persona 3}}'': [[spoiler:At the end, the Main Character [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices himself]] to transform [[BarrierMaiden into a barrier]] that keeps the two resident {{Eldritch Abomination}}s from meeting each other and [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destroying the world]]]].

* In the third ''Literature/{{Mistborn}}'' novel, [[spoiler: Vin]] spends some time in this situation with Ruin after [[spoiler: she becomes the new Preservation.]] Both of them are theoretically so powerful that they can do almost anything you can imagine, but since they each directly oppose every single one of the other's goals, everything one tries to do the other one will immediately counteract, rendering them both functionally powerless.

* ''Manga/GetterRobo''
** At the end of ''Getter Robo Armageddon'', the original Getter heroes join an entire ''interdimensional legion'' of warriors dedicated to this. Though, considering that this iteration of the Getter team are pretty much a gaggle of {{Blood Knight}}s, for them it's not so much Hades as Valhalla.
** In ''New Getter Robo'' at the very end it's implied this version of Ryoma also joined them.

* Done at the end of the ''BusouRenkin'' anime. Kazuki uses his Energy Release as a rocket to [[spoiler: launch himself and Victor ''to the moon'']]. Once there, they can't hurt anyone else but can never return [[spoiler: until the rest of the alchemists get around to building a makeshift rocket]].

* In ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' YAMI (evil) do this to the good guys [[spoiler: by luring their strongest (Hayato Fūrinji) into an equal fight. They have been fighting for days. It seems the winner will be the one to scrounge/hunt-down more nutritional food in between attacks, blocks and dodges.]] The stalemate is finally broken when [[spoiler:a fox that Hayato considered eating but spared when he saw that it had a family [[AndroclesLion distracts his opponent at a crucial moment]].]]
