* Creator/JorgeLuisBorges's "The Two Kings and the Two Labyrinths" deconstructs this trope: The Prideful King of Babylon mocks the King of Arabia by forcing him to enter his BigLabyrinthineBuilding. The King of Arabia asks for God's help, [[DeusExMachina and gets out]]. He tells the King of Babylon he knows a ''simpler, better'' SealedRoomInTheMiddleOfNowhere and some day he will show it to him. Years later, [[spoiler:The Arabian King [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge makes war and dethrones the King of Babylon]], [[CrossingTheDesert cross with him the Arabian desert]] and abandons the King of Babylon there, [[ThirstyDesert where he died from thirst and hunger]].]]

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', the player can obtain a magical trinket that teleports them to a literal sealed room in the middle of nowhere. It's DummiedOut and completely impossible to enter save for two ways: one is using the trinket to teleport in, the other is using cheats to warp yourself to the coordinates of the room. Inside, you fight a daedra with a unique sword (that resembles a klingon double blade). Defeat him, and the sword is yours, along with instant passage back to wherever you came from. Lose, and be prepared for a very ''long'' stay...
