* Third part of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' starts with a protagonist refusing to leave his jail cell, after policemen told him, that he is free to go. He claims that he is haunted by an evil spirit and thus, better off behind bars, where he can't harm anyone (except other inmates, who quickly became terrified of him). He agreed to leave only after Joseph explained, that "evil spirit" actually was jusr a manifestation on his own powers.

* Beast in the 90s ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' cartoon was once wrongly sent to prison. Magneto, thinking this would make him bitter, broke him out in an attempt to recruit him as an ally - at which point Beast politely asked him to leave, as he wished to stand trial and prove his innocence.

Also displayed in a later scene where Gambit is visiting him and Beast casually bends the bars to his cell (and then straitens them again) to let him in.

* In ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'', Ban was arrested and jailed for years, starved and kept in restraints (as well as impaled in several places). As soon as he hears news that his old friend Meliodas is still alive, he casually breaks his restraints and kicks the cell door down, then pulls the metal spikes out of his body, as his HealingFactor fixes the damage.

* Puri-Puri-Prisoner in ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' has imprisoned himself because he's afraid he'll assault attractive young men. There's no indication he's ever actually done so, but for whatever reason he thinks he would. Whenever he needs to his job as a superhero, he breaks out of prison, then breaks back in after he's done.



** This happens to Bumi when he is imprisoned by the Fire nation, he willingly restrains himself until the Firebenders lose their powers so it is easier for him to not just escape, but take back his whole city by himself.

** This happens to Bumi when he is imprisoned by the Fire nation, Nation, who place him in a metal box with only his face exposed so that he can be fed. The Fire Nation soldiers thought that by completely immobilizing his arms and legs, they prevented him from Earthbending, but it turns out ''twitching his nose'' is all the body movement he needs for that. Bumi willingly restrains himself until the Firebenders temporarily lose their powers so it is easier for him to not just escape, but take back his whole city by himself.

* A couple of OrsonScottCard's ''Literature/TheTalesOfAlvinMaker'' books have done this. Alvin can pretty much go wherever he wants, whenever he wants, but allowed himself to be kept imprisoned twice, though I seem to recall he eventually broke out the second time because there was an emergency.

* This is played with in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'', where members of S.H.I.E.L.D. grab Jonah so Nick Fury can have a word with him, accidentally grabbing Peter along with him. This means they have to detail Peter while Jonah and Fury have their talk; while Peter realizes it wouldn't be a good idea to simply break out of the cell and give his identity away, he's rather curious, so he undoes a vent entrance in order to find Jonah and listen in. He manages to do so and get back before anyone notices.

** In ''Thud!'', a group of Watch officers, including a pair of trolls, are captured by dwarven army troops and the trolls ([[FantasticRacism and only the trolls]]) are put in chains. Vimes spots straight away that they're just cheap field chains and would be completely unable to hold the (massive, made-of-stone) trolls for more than a few seconds... but that would give the dwarfs the legal ability to kill the "escaping prisoner". Fortunately, Detritus is more than experienced enough to see through the trick.
* In ''TheAdventuresOfHuckleberryFinn'', Tom Sawyer convinces Jim that he can't just walk out of his cabin, and has to make his escape in a properly epic fashion. Jim's already legally been freed but Tom's keeping it a secret
