* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': As far as Reynir's great-grandfather was concerned in the prologue, the world outside of Iceland was falling apart due to the Rash. On top of this, he was quitting his job in the coast guard because it had turned into enforcing QuarantineWithExtremePrejudice on any refugee boat that showed up from the rest of the world. Because of this, he promised himself to never tell any future children he may have about what's outside of Iceland and make them understand that that they should never try leaving the country. Over the following ninety years, some people were discovered to be TheImmune to the Rash and Iceland developped a program to enable parents who are not TheImmune to have children who are. In addition, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland turned out to be still around as nations, albeit beaten up by TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. This resulted in Reynir being sheltered into staying in the family farm due to being both the youngest child and the only non-immune one, while his four older siblings each showed up at home twice a year with stories about being abroad. It's from one of them that he found out that the ban on non-immune people travelling outside of Iceland was actually no longer in place, when his parents had told him otherwise. It's safe to assume that the sheltering to which Reynir was subject has something to do with his great-grandfather's promise.

* In Creator/RobertEHoward's "Literature/TheValeOfLostWomen" Livia promises herself to ConanTheBarbarian if he will free her from her captor. Then she bolts in panic. When he rescues her again, she admits to breaking it and deserving punishment; he returns her home instead because it would have been no better than rape.

* The plot of ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' only really happens because, after a barracuda eats Marlin's wife and most of his eggs, he finds one sole survivor (Nemo), and promises he "will never let anything happen to [him]". This results in him being overprotected, venturing out alone, and getting kidnapped for captivity in a fish tank.
