* The episode "Friend Ship" of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' features Peridot attempting to trap the Crystal Gems inside a very old, abandoned gem spacecraft. Fortunately, her inability to work the archaic technology (as well as Pearl and Garnet making up after a recent conflict and being able to fuse into Sardonyx once again) enables them to catch up to Peridot so she is forced to escape, leaving them with a way out as well.

* An ongoing story arc from ''Series/TheXFiles'' involves an alien lifeform which manifests as a sentient black oil. One such alien inadvertently became separated from its spacecraft, and [[BodySurf took possession of numerous people]] in order to destroy the evidence of its existence. The alien's final "host body" belonged to the traitorous Alex Krycek, who (having completed the alien's work) got the unpleasant task of returning the creature to its vessel. After the alien left Krycek's body (by forcing him to ''vomit oil'' from every orifice, no less) he awakened to find himself alone in an abandoned missile silo. Twenty floors underground. In the middle of a [[GhostTown North Dakota wasteland,]] no less. The reveal of Krycek screaming in horror was preceded by a quote from Scully that sometimes our dead are [[BuriedAlive "buried alive"]]. [[spoiler:In true ''X-Files'' fashion, however, Krycek returned the following season without a scratch (or a clear explanation for how he got out of the silo).]]

* Creator/MarvelComics' version of SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} was trapped by Odin in the Room Without Doors on the Island Of Silence ... until he managed to escape. His previous punishment had been being transformed into a tree [[AndIMustScream for a dozen centuries or so]].

* In [[Franchise/MarvelUniverse Marvel]]'s ''Acts of Vengeance'' [[BatFamilyCrossover crossover]], SelfDemonstrating/{{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 Jewish 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.

* Baron Lyron Evensong, a minor darklord of {{Ravenloft}}, is cursed with a version of this trope. Every evening, he's compelled to return to the music room of his residence and close himself inside, remaining until dawn. To the rest of the world, he's there overnight, but to him the world outside the room vanishes and leaves him stuck there for ''100 years'': magically-sustained and ageless, but stir-crazy and bored out of his mind. Any unfortunates he can lure into staying in the room with him through dusk experience this trope also ... unfortunately for them, ''without'' the benefits of agelessness.
