* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', it's revealed that the ''Master Sword'', the iconic weapon of the series, is this. [[spoiler:The sword's spirit Fi takes it upon herself to seal Demise's soul within herself. Demise manages to unleash one last parting shot by unleashing a curse on Link and Zelda that would doom them to face an incarnation of his hatred whenever they are reincarnated. That incarnation turns out to be the series BigBad Ganon.]]

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', the only reason why Calamity Ganon hasn't completely destroyed Hyrule already is because [[spoiler:Princess Zelda]] has been busy keeping him sealed inside Hyrule Castle for the past 100 years.

** Ragna the Bloodedge's title comes from the man who previously owned his signature red BadassLongcoat and {{BFS}}, who just went by "Bloodedge". In the distant past, Bloodedge fought the Black Beast in order to distract it long enough for humanity to learn how to use Ars Magus so they could kill it. He managed to last an entire year before the Black Beast finally killed him. [[spoiler:Also, he was a time-travelling Ragna with amnesia]].

* In the fourth issue of ''ComicBook/GodzillaInHell'', Godzilla finds himself trapped in a walled city replica of Tokyo in the afterlife, eternally fighting King Ghidorah and Destroyah, as whenever any of them are killed, they immediately come back to life. Godzilla tries to destroy the wall around the city, but finds that his atomic breath isn't able to damage it. [[spoiler: He manages to destroy the wall by tricking Destroyah and King Ghidorah to fire at the same spot as him, which is enough to break through. When he does, King Ghidorah, Destroyah and the city immediately vanish.]]

** Earlier in the game, if the player is NOT on the path to the worst ending, Mad Dummy, who is normally invulnerable to damage, threatens to do the same thing after he runs out of attacks, but he gets driven off by Napstablook.

* 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.
