* 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.

* This actually benefits Finn in the first ''Literature/KingdomKeepers'' book, since being grounded allows him to go to bed earlier without attracting suspicion, which allows him to cross over.[[/folder]]

** An interesting case occurs when Mr Bennett grounds Claire on an excuse--because it's been foretold that she'll die if she attends Homecoming. Of course she doesn't know this and sneaks out.
** [[spoiler: Arthur Petrelli says this jokingly to his son Peter after he stole his abilities.]]

* "WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadbug": 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.

** 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.
