* The first part of Dante's ''Literature/DivineComedy'' was thick with this, not so much due to the fact that Hell was escape-proof, but due to the fact that sinners were punished via creative means that fit the crimes they had committed in life. To give one example, thieves had their very forms stolen from them, and continually shifted from one monstrous form to another.

* The alternate name for the page, "The Oubliette", is a dungeon in the shape of a well or bottle (hence "bottle dungeon") with a trap door at the top to let people in via a rope or rope ladder. Seeing how these were only talked in the 1880s it's very likely these alleged "dungeons" were likely places to store ice or ammo for siege weapons like catapults.

** Also of note is the way SelfDemonstrating/SuperboyPrime has been confined over the years. When [[Franchise/TheFlash The Flashes]] drew him into the Speed Force, he was kept in a place with only red sunlight until he was able to build a set of armor that converted it into yellow sunlight. When ''Comicbook/InfiniteCrisis'' ended, the Guardians Of The Universe locked him in a special Sciencell inside a red Sun Eater, which was itself guarded at all times by fifty [[Franchise/Green Lantern Green Lanterns]]. Then after he was rescued by the Sinestro Corp and landed in the future, he was sent back to Earth Prime. This was maybe the most hellish prison of all, since he got what he wanted and was sent home, only to find his parents knew everything he'd done and he was hated and unloved by everyone, unable to get back to the comic book world - not that he wanted to. When he finally ''did'' get drawn back, he tried to kill Conner Kent and ended up imprisoned in the Source Wall for his trouble.

* In ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'', the defeated and captured members of Yami (organization of villainous martial arts masters) are sent into one of the series of so-called "Big Locks" - massively built prisons designed specifically to keep the Yami members inside for good.
** Some of the newer chapters suggest that these prisons won't hold a master should one really want to get out. What holds them there is "Obey the winner" mentality and their martial artist pride.

The only reason they stay there is "Obey the winner" mentality and because of their pride as martial artist pride. artists, which dictates that they must obey the winner's orders.

* {{Furi}} is a game all about this trope. The main character, The Stranger, is attempting to break out of his custom super-prison made of several large zones floating in orbit above the planet below, and to do so he has to defeat the Jailer of each zone, who are the best warriors the planet has to offer, [[spoiler: including the one who put him in the prison to begin with.]]

* In ''Literature/TheBlackPrism'', the first book of ''Literature/TheLightBringerTrilogy'', Gavin Guile creates a [[HardLight blue luxin]] prison with a [[PowerNullifier hellstone]] floor. It's designed to hold a Prism, such as his brother. [[Spoiler: There's more cells beyond the first, each with the same design.]] Notably enough the difficulty of creating the prison is made explicit and the immense cost of the power nullifying hellstone is pointed out[Spoiler: offering an early hint that the prison's designer wasn't exactly sane.]]

* In ''Literature/TheBlackPrism'', the first book of ''Literature/TheLightBringerTrilogy'', the brother of the Prism, who both share the ability to create temporary matter from light, called luxin, is trapped by the Prism in a blue crystal prison, which is designed to absorb all blue luxin on contact, rendering his abilities useless. While it is supposed to be the perfect prison, the Prism is extremely paranoid, and makes [[spoiler:6 more identical cells, each for every color of the light spectrum, all of which lead to each other through a series of traps and pitch black tunnels filled with crystals that drain the luxin of those exposed to them.]]

* Pretty much any cell ComicBook/{{Diabolik}} and his accomplice Eva Kant are put into is made specifically to keep them in and prevent the currentlky free one from breaking the other out. The fact they ''still'' can break each other out [[OvershadowedByAwesome is more a testament to Diabolik and Eva's skills than the prisons being easy to break out from]].

** While this trope applies to all the Yozi to some extent, Oramus, the Dragon Beyond the World has an even more extreme example. With nigh-omnipotent control over the concept of Boundaries (physical and abstract), the gods and Exalted feared that any binding, no matter how clever, wouldn't be enough to lock him away permanently. Thus, in addition to the surrender oaths and being placed in Malfeas, they also fashioned him into his own prison, breaking his seven wings into restraints that he couldn't simply ignore or command.
