* Ian Starshine fills this role at the gladiator camp in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''; his reference to being nicknamed "Red" is a ShoutOut to ''TheShawshankRedemption''. He's not as reliable as typical examples of this trope, though.

* In ''ComicBook/YTheLastMan'', it is discovered that the idyllic if [[TownWithADarkSecret somewhat secretive]] hamlet Yorick and company stumble across a few months after the {{gendercide}} is populated by inmates of the women's penitentiary just down the road that the remaining guards cut loose. The white-haired woman with a cane and fond memories of working munitions factories during UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo that was more or less running the place? Doing life for murder.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', Tiktoffen is the "man in charge" in the sentient, sapient and homicidal [[MalevolentArchitecture Castle Heterodyne]]. Subverted, as he's actually only been in for three years - but he's still the longest-serving prisoner. People don't tend to last long inside Castle Heterodyne, especially since half the time it's actively trying to kill them.
** Fixing parts of the Castle gives you points and takes months off your sentence, but it's worth noting that in the fifteen or so years that the Castle has been used as a prison, only one person has ever managed to get enough points to get out.

If the central characters decide to break out, the Old Convict probably won't go with them, realising he no longer knows how to survive in the outside world. He may die at the hands of the authorities or vicious fellow inmates (maybe in an attack actually aimed at the hero), inspiring the heroes to either escape or seek vengeance.
