* Back in the [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]], Fawcett Comics (best known for [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel)]] had a magician super-hero named Ibis the Invincible. He was an ancient Egyptian who had somehow wound up as a mummy, but then got reawakened in the present day in a museum. He then reawakened his mummified lady love (thanks to magic, they were revived as living breathing people, not movie-style mummies), and then he went on to become a very ComicStrip/MandrakeTheMagician-style super hero. He debuted in ''Whiz Comics'' #2, the very same issue that introduced Captain Marvel. Like the other Fawcett heroes, he's now owned by Franchise/DCComics, and pops up once in a while in stories dealing with magic or [[{{Qurac}} the Middle East.]] His signature weapon is a magic wand called the Ibistick.[[/folder]]

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** The series' primary CreationMyth provides an example of a permanent sealing. Anu and Padomay are the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification anthropomorphized]] primordial forces of [[OrderVersusChaos "stasis/order/light" and "change/chaos/darkness"]], respectively. Their interplay in the great "void" of pre-creation led to creation itself. Creation, sometimes anthropomorphized as the female entity "Nir", favored Anu, [[DrivenByEnvy which angered Padomay]]. Padomay killed Nir and [[EarthShatteringKaboom shattered the twelve worlds]] she gave birth to. Anu then wounded Padomay, presuming him dead. Anu salvaged the pieces of the twelve worlds to create one world: Nirn. Padomay returned and wounded Anu, seeking to destroy Nirn. Anu then [[SealedEvilInACan pulled Padomay]] and ''[[TakingYouWithMe himself]]'' outside of time, ending Padomay's threat to creation "forever". From the intermingling of their spilled blood came the "et'Ada", or "original spirits", who would go on to become either the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedra or the Daedra]] depending on their actions during creation. (Some myths state that the Aedra come from the mixed blood of Anu and Padomay, while the Daedra come purely from the blood of Padomay).
** Serana from ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' DLC ''Dawnguard'' is an ancient FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire who rebelled against her vampire father, Lord Hakon, centuries ago and was sealed away with an [[PlotCoupon Elder Scroll]] by her mother in order to protect them both from him. Although she's not particularly "good" (admitting freely that for her, the perks of being vampire royalty outweigh any moral compunctions), she seeks to thwart her father's omnicidal plans after being released from her imprisonment and becomes a loyal friend to the [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]].

** One tumblr posited having a fire extinguisher in every classroom in America. Not to prevent fires, but to prevent mass shootings. Class room doors offer great chock points and the contents of a fire extinguisher are under pressure, very cold, and harmful if inhaled. In addition, if discharging the contents into the shooter's face does not knock him out cold, he'll be disoriented while you're still holding onto [[ImprovisedWeapon a very dense improvised club.]]

* This is one of the ''many'' potential interpretations of the end of ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena.''

to:

* [[ImpliedTrope Implied]] for [[GodEmperor Prince]] [[GreaterScopeParagon Dios]] in ''Anima/RevolutionaryGirlUtena''. In nearly any given Utena incarnation, all the audience initially learns of him is that he resides in an unreachable floating castle, that [[MysteriousWaif Anthy the Rose Bride]] can summon his InfinityPlusOneSword, and that Utena can either summon or [[WillingChanneler channel]] him to [[GuardianEntity grant her victory]]. Beyond this, information is vague, but all evidence points to him being both powerful enough to [[ArcWords bring the world revolution]] and a benevolent, selfless savior of the weak prior to his current imprisonment. [[DeconstructorFleet This being Utena]], this gets several subversions depending on the version:
** Manga: [[spoiler: Nearly played straight - Dios is indeed imprisoned, but only his [[SealedBadassInACan power]] and [[LiteralSplitPersonality his "good" side]]; his EnemyWithout (End of The World, aka Akio Ohtori) is unfortunately free as a bird.]]
** Anime: [[spoiler: "Dios" (as well as his castle) were illusions all along. Dios himself is real and free - he just cranked FallenHero UpToEleven in the intervening centuries and became Akio. His [[SealedBadassInACan powers]], on the other hand...]]
***
This is one of the ''many'' potential interpretations of the end of ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena.''''
** Movie: [[spoiler: Dios [[{{Tulpa}} was never real to begin with]], born from [[RealityWarper Anthy's]] [[BigBrotherWorship need to see her brother as a hero and protector]], instead of the [[SissyVillain weak]], [[BrotherSisterIncest perverted]] [[RapeAsDrama rapist]] he really was.]]

* Creator/RobertJordan's ''Literature/WheelOfTime'' series has the Horn of Valere, which can summon the greatest heroes of the setting's history to kick righteous amounts of ass. [[spoiler:The subversion being that the heroes obey whomever blew the horn -- good or evil -- until he dies. Double subverted when we find out that this actually isn't true; the heroes would never fight for the [[BigBad Dark One]] or his minions.]] Also the heroes aren't exactly sealed: they regularly get reincarnated on Earth and only the ones not currently alive are summoned.

* Similarly, ''The Twelve'' revealed that twelve other (much more obscure) Golden Age Marvel heroes were [[HumanPopsicle frozen in suspended animation]] by the Nazis to study later, but the Nazi scientists didn't get the chance because the war ended. They get reawakened in modern times, and the book mostly deals with how well they each adapt to the new world, or fail to do so.
