* Ryoko, from ''TenchiMuyo'', was sealed away as a traditional demon in the {{OVA}}s; however, after calming down by dueling Tenchi for an episode, she joined the cast as a protagonist and suitor for Tenchi's hand. Washuu was in a similar situation in the TV series.

** The heroes spend most of the series believing that [[spoiler:the Crippled God is this, but he turns out to be a subversion as he's not so much evil as simply mad. Freeing him ends up undoing his madness and he ultimately assists the heroes in preventing the extinction of the human race, making him more of a SealedGoodInACan.]]

The primary question is usually "Why did they just seal it, as opposed to KILL it?" Well, the answer tends to vary; but usually it's a variant of ThePunishment (for both the sealed and everyone else), and/or AsLongAsThereIsEvil. Maybe it ''[[{{Immortality}} can't]]'' be killed for good (or more commonly, the conditions weren't right to deal the final blow), so sealing is the next best thing. Another common excuse is the BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil; if they'd killed the ancient evil, then a [[BiggerBad bigger, badder]] evil would've taken its place, thus sealing it away neutralizes the threat but also keeps it in the world and maintains the balance. For some reason, only on a very few occasions is the evil sealed simply because the goods didn't have the power at the time to kill it outright. Or maybe it ''was'' killed and the method of breaking the seal was [[BackFromTheDead resurrecting it!]]

Or perhaps it was awoken by unsuspecting [[DugTooDeep Mine Workers or Archaeologists]] who dug too deep and found something better left buried and undisturbed -- often ignoring [[DontTouchItYouIdiot every single warning they found before releasing it.]]

** ''Anime/DragonballSuper'' introduces an evil being sealed away on the planet Potofu. In a case that rivals the Denshi Jar for strangeness, it was kept in a pitcher inside an old fridge locked with a chain and padlock.
