* In [[Franchise/MarvelUniverse Marvel]]'s ''Acts of Vengeance'' [[BatFamilyCrossover crossover]], Loki gathered several supervillains together for a scheme against ComicBook/TheAvengers. Among the group were the ComicBook/RedSkull and ComicBook/{{Magneto}}. The Red Skull was [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler Hitler's]] right hand man. Magneto is a ''survivor of the Holocaust''. So, in the ''ComicBook/CaptainAmerica'' portion of the crossover, Magneto took the opportunity to [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome seal the Skull in a underground chamber with just enough water to survive, but no way to escape]]. The Skull is [[JokerImmunity eventually rescued]] by his henchman Crossbones.

** This is effectively what many of the Vaults became since, aside from the Control Vaults, they were all designed as twisted social experiments. Most of the Overseers had been ordered to keep anyone from leaving, effectively trapping everyone inside to suffer whatever insane conditions Vault-Tec put them in. Examples include subliminal noise generators driving everyone insane, exposure to hallucinogenic gas, and infamously, [[PennyArcade a single inhabitant trapped alone with nothing but a box of handpuppets for company]].

** ''Clear Card:'' revisits this trope when Sakura's room turns into one of these as a result of one of the new cards. The room seemly has no way out, and pushing on the walls only causes it to stretch. It soon begins to actively try to kill them, but they find a way to escape rather quickly when they realize it's made of rubber and so can be popped with a sharp object like you can a balloon.

* ''Duel on Syrtis'', by Creator/PoulAnderson. A HuntingTheMostDangerousGame tale InSpace ends with the GreatWhiteHunter apparently killing the alien prey, but his spacesuit has been damaged so he takes a drug to immobilize his body and slow his metabolism until he's rescued. Turns out the alien is NotQuiteDead and drags the human to an isolated cave, then connects up some spare oxygen tanks so he'll live a very long time...
