* ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus'' may or may not have an example in Dormin: They're definitely some kind of sealed entity, but the jury's still out on if They're good, evil, or neither.

** On a related note, Excalibur itself might be considered an example, as this powerful weapon for Good was kept hidden by the Lady of the Lake until the right wielder came along. Like many cases where this trope applies to objects, it was Sealed In A Can Again after Arthur was through with it.
* Some versions of the myth of Pandora's Box state that after all the evils of the world had been released from the box, there was just one more thing that remained in the box: Hope.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft: Mists of Pandaria'' gives us the Klaxxi Paragons. The Klaxxi are [[BigCreepyCrawlies Mantid]] whose best and brightest are sealed away in amber and resurrected when the need arises. In this case, they're Sealed Good from the ''Mantid'' perspective, as their objection to Empress Shek'zeer isn't that she's raising a swarm of Mantid to attack Pandaria, but is doing so at the wrong time and in doing so abandoning the Mantids' SocialDarwinist values.

** The Klaxxi are best described as LawfulEvil [[DefectorFromDecadence Defectors from Decadence]] who are opposing the abandonment of SocialDarwinist values and the ''timing'' of the Mantid swarm-invasion, not that it is actually happening. Interestingly, they claim to be loyal servants of the [[EldritchAbomination Old Gods]] yet fight against the [[EmotionEater Sha,]] who come from the local Old God influence.
