* In {{Videogames/MidnightSun}} The main character Faratrass is used as seal to contain the Demon King and is taught magic to contain him. The {{Trauma Conga Line}} she goes through during the story ends up putting an emotion strain on her to the point where the seal begins to weaken.

* In the canon of ''FanFic/TheBridge'' we get an example of a villain container for an even worse villain with Monster X as the vessel for Kaizer Ghidorah. While Monster X is an AntiVillain with a sense of honor and is genuine friends with his teammates, Kaizer Ghidorah is a rampaging monstrosity that will kill anything around him. A big part of Monster X's [[VillainProtagonist story arc]] is both finding out about Kaizer's existence and keeping him contained.

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' has a possible ending where the soul of the Archdemon, formerly Urthemiel, Dragon of Beauty, can end up inside [[spoiler:Morrigan's unborn, darkspawn-tainted fetus.]] ** If this option was taken, in DragonAgeInquisition, you eventually meet this "can" in the form of [[spoiler: Morrigan's ten year old son, Kieran,]] who's a fairly nice boy despite being the host to an Old God - he does, however, make many cryptic remarks, and he appears to be much more ordinary if he was [[spoiler: conceived without the ritual taking place]]. Later in the game, [[spoiler: Flemeth takes the Old God soul out of him, leaving him relatively unharmed in a subversion of the usual trope.]]

* In the ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'', SCP-231 plays this trope for extreme horror. They have to do [[NothingIsScarier SOMETHING]] [[FateWorseThanDeath horrific]] to this absurdly young girl every few days to keep said evil inside. Each time one gets out (or the host dies) it's progressively worse, to the point that hers could mean [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Earth says adios]]. WordOfGod says it's ten times worse than whatever your guess is.

[[spoiler: She is, at the very least, repeatedly and violently raped (possibly while being subject to other tortures), while being forcefully kept conscious so she can't escape the pain. She is fed through a feeding tube and gets water through an IV so she doesn't experience the pleasures of eating, and she is never to be given any medication to dull her pain (and is only to be attended to by doctors who haven't taken the Hippocratic Oath). They wipe her memory every couple of days so her surprise, shock, and sensitivity to pain never drop; with careful timing, they do so when her feelings of despair reach their absolute peak and she is given no time to acclimatize.]] ** Almost everyone involved with the project begs for a high-class amnesiac to erase the memory of what they've seen, and individuals are to be regularly cycled out of the project for risk of going insane.
