** Although he's never formally grounded or punished, elements of this trope frequently happen to Marinette's co-lead [[PoorLittleRichKid Adrian Agreste]]. His stern, overprotective father likes to keep him confined to home where bodyguards watch him so he'll be safe, so Adrian is frequently forced to sneak out to operate as Chat Noir.

* Parodied on ''WesternAnimation/{{Turbo}} FAST'': In "Deuce is Wild", when Turbo sees Deuce and Edvard committing petty debauchery he tells Deuce that he's grounded, but Deuce is quick to point out Turbo doesn't have the authority to punish him because he isn't his father...[[LoonyFan but then says that he can become his father if he wants to]].

* In the episode of ''Series/PeeWeesPlayhouse'' titled ''The Gang's All Here'', Pee-Wee caught the playhouse gang for playing too loud, too noisy and too rough. Pee-Wee told the kids not to run around in the playhouse, screaming or jumping on the furniture. And Pee-Wee kicked them out of the playhouse.
** [[spoiler: But after they leave, Mr. Window blurts They're all gone. Then Pee-Wee does the same routine as the playhouse gang did and came back to the playhouse]]

Teen (or younger) character is grounded at an inopportune time (usually near the end of Act 2). Often, the person doing the punishing doesn't have an exceptional reason, or just has a sense that the teen is out of control and needs to calm down (or that the younger character has misbehaved or otherwise did something wrong). So they restrict the youngster's social life for a time by banning him or her from leaving the house and/or having friends over. Of course, if the character is of school age and the grounding takes place during term time, chances are they will be allowed out to go to school - unless they have also been suspended or expelled.

* In one episode of parenting series ''Series/TheHouseOfTinyTearaways'', one of the children, Sophie, is caught smirking in the belief that she has outsmarted her mother's attempt to get her to settle in her own bed. (She and her two younger siblings are in the House because of this problem.) The next day, Sophie is grounded from playing in the garden with the other children and told that, if she carries on acting up at bedtime, she will not be allowed to take part in various extracurricular activities. However, she is allowed to join the rest of her family when they go on a bonding exercise.

** This is just WMG, but it's likely that Kshin was grounded following the events of "A Demon in His Pocket", in which he disobeys a direct instruction to stay away from Mandrake's sorcery books. At the end of the episode, Mandrake tells Kshin that he will be punished, but the nature of that punishment is never revealed.



* "WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug": Happens to Marinette in the episode "Simon Says", when her parents find out about her many unexcused absences due to her secret heroics. This causes her to have to sneak out to help stop an Akuma attack. In a rarity for this trope, her sneaking out is never discovered and the grounding is lifted after a week when she avoids missing class, due to both her parents fitting the ReasonableAuthorityFigure trope.

* Several cartoons, such as ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'', ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' and ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries'', had the protagonists who are seriously grounded by their strict parents (such as Scrooge [=McDuck=], the Flynn/Fletcher family and Uncle Quigley) for doing something wrong (e.g., making a huge mess at Uncle Scrooge's mansion, building a car of the future, driving without a legal driver's license and using magic without permission) and got everything taken away such as Scrooge's nephews' supper, Blythe Baxter's smartphone, some of Phineas' inventions and Sabrina Spellman's flying broomstick, causing the protagonists (especially Blythe Baxter, Phineas and Sabrina Spellman) to go to their rooms. Actually, Blythe Baxter's grounding is thwarted by the Littlest Pet Shop pets in the episode "(Sweet) Truck Ride" (in which Penny Ling recovers her confiscated smartphone and films a reaction of the same incident, with Roger Baxter in hot pursuit, taking control of the runaway truck) but soon apologizes and forgives his young 13-year-old daughter so that he could join her in his father/daughter picnic at the end of the episode.

* This happens to Noby ''all the time'' in the American adaptation of ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}''. He always gets grounded, unlike in the Japanese version where he gets sent out of the house by his mom (a typical Japanese household punishment used by parents). Doraemon is occasionally grounded along with him.
