* During the ''Fall of the Mutants'' storyline, the Comicbook/{{X-Men}} were fighting a monster known as the Adversary, and the only way to defeat him was to sacrifice their lives and souls to seal away into the form of two stone tablets. Needless to say, even Roma sees this as only a temporary set-back for the villain and once the smoke clears, [[ComicBookDeath resurrects the X-Men so that they can get on with their lives while Adversary takes his time out.]]

* In ''Twenty years after'', the first sequel to {{Literature/The Three Musketeers}}, D'Artagnan and Porthos have been captured on the orders of Cardinal Mazarin and are imprisoned in Rueil Castle. Mazarin requests ''thirty'' extra soldiers to guard exclusively the two "special guests". Unsurprisingly, [[spoiler: they manage to escape anyway]].

* In [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/210268/what-costs-nothing What Costs Nothing]], it's revealed that the metal of Lord Tirek's cage in Tartarus is made of blessed iron. As Tirek is [[OurDemonsAreDifferent a demon]], [[HolyBurnsEvil he can't so much as touch the bars without being badly burned]].

[[RuleOfDrama Eventually he'll break out]] but to be fair to the prison's designer, the villain usually can't escape on his own.

* ''FanFic/AndIfThatDontWork'' has the Caina Containment Complex. A massive underground chamber used to imprison [[PhysicalGod Angels]]. It's secured by a nuclear SwordOfDamocles DeadManSwitch, much to [[spoiler: Iry]]'s chagrin.

* In ''FanFic/{{Glass}}'', Kaiba's prison is truly inescapable and meant to drain his psyche, as everything he needs to live is only seen and accessed through the other side of the wall. [[spoiler:Joey and Ryou Bakura have it even worse, being locked in the dungeons for ''months''.]]
* In ''Fanfic/TheGreatAlicornHunt'', Apple Bloom figures out how to build one of these to contain [[GripingAboutGremlins Malfunziona]], whose powers and nature drive him to break machines but mean that he literally can't fix anything. Apple Bloom takes advantage of this by building and locking him inside a complex clockwork container that stays locked because its intentionally flawed design means it's ''already'' broken, and any attempt to break it open will actually make it work ''better'', which is anathema to Malfunziona.
* In the {{Crossover}} fanfic FanFic/TheLegendOfRuby there is one introduced in an early chapter, built out of solid iron, since in the story proper metalbending has not been discovered. Sadly, it still doesn't quite seem to hold [[spoiler:Roman Torchwick]] but then again, he does have help from the outside.

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "The Pandorica Opens", [[spoiler: one of these is constructed for the Doctor by a huge number of his enemies working together, to stop him from destroying the universe. The Doctor, through timeline wonkiness, literally ''let himself out'' (as in, an Eleventh Doctor on the outside released the one on the inside, albeit by proxy).]]

* This has been done several times in ''Series/DoctorWho''.
** In "The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit", The Tenth Doctor encounters one of these.

** In fact, the Foundation is (indirectly) named after this. The Foundation calls a paranormal entity/object/etc an SCP, which comes from "'''S'''pecial '''C'''ontainment '''P'''rocedures"; the list of things which must be done to keep a paranormal thing locked up, or at least reduce the danger it causes and keep the public ignorant of it, and the rules which must be followed by any researcher who wants to study it.

** In ''VideoGame/UruAgesBeyondMyst'', the set of fortresses in the Gahreesan age rotate, ''specifically'' so that there's no place to link in safely except the very center. In the second (and larger) fortress, a number of usually inescapable prison chambers are found above, usually with some bones in them. The implication is that prisoners were linked to precisely ''one'' point, but the rotation of the cells meant that they could store quite a few bodies up there with the right timing.
