* Well before the start of the ''{{Geneforge}}'' series, the Shapers discovered a startling new [[PsychoSerum technology]] that could imbue ordinary humans with incredible magical powers. When they discovered some of the side effects involved (such as SuicidalOverconfidence, a violent temper, and in extreme cases, outright BodyHorror), rather than take any steps to destroy this technology, they simply abandoned the remote island outpost where it was discovered, and declared it off limits under penalty of death. Fast forward a few hundred years: A band of explorers from across the seas happens upon the abandoned outpost and all its forbidden goods. Things go downhill from there.

** Possibly the only case in the Kirby series where opening the can isn't a case of NiceJobBreakingItHero takes place in the Meta Knightmare Ultra mode of ''Kirby Super Star Ultra'' where Meta Knight questions NOVA, a mechanical, wish granting comet, about an extremely powerful warrior named Galacta Knight who was sealed away because his powers were too great. Immediately after this [[{{Badass}} he orders NOVA to break the seal on this incredibly powerful evil just so he can kick its ass.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The monsters themselves become this at the end of the war, when [[spoiler: the humans severed the connection between the monster and human dimensions. The monsters became trapped in their own dimension again, but if the humans ever redevelop the technologies that caused them to come through in the first place they may escape and begin a second war.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'', the Hybrid, the most dangerous of the monsters, cannot access the monsters' method of moving between worlds and remains trapped on a single planet. This is because [[spoiler: they Hybrid was once Kala and thus not a pure monster. As such, she cannot return to the monsters' home dimension and rematerialize elsewhere.]]

* Most ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games feature a Sealed Evil in a can. Even ''FinalFantasyTactics'', which is grounded in realism and political intrigue, has an evil god trying to find a suitable host body.

* In the ''Videogame/{{Halo}}'' series, the bad guys accidentally release the Flood, a race of alien parasites that were sealed in special facilities all over the galaxy at the end of a cataclysmic war between them and the Forerunners 100,000 years ago. This war ended with the extinction of all sentient life in the galaxy, so it's a wonder why the Forerunners left little pockets of Flood spores for nosey aliens to stumble across. The AI monitor of one of these facilities comments on this (while you're in the middle of fending off a large wave of rotting space-zombies), saying that specimens were kept over after the last outbreak "for study," and remarks that "this decision may have been in error." No shit...
** Done again in ''Videogame/{{Halo 4}}'' with [[spoiler:The Didact, who is most likely the last living Forerunner, being released by the [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Master Chief.]] ]]

* Averted and parodied in ''VideoGame/SepterraCore''. The game's intro movie and backstory tell about a great battle in which Marduk (the world's CrystalDragonJesus) defeated Gemma (the local {{Satan}} equivalent). In most {{RPG}}s, at some point towards the end Gemma would be resurrected and become the final boss. The main character even speculates that this is going to happen after hearing the tale about the battle between Marduk and Gemma. In response, TheObiWan remarks that such a plot twist would be rather silly, and only happens in stories. Sure enough, Gemma never comes back, and the final boss of the game is the character who's been the main villain from start to finish, the KnightTemplar EvilOverlord Lord Doskias.

* Seems to be the case with the [[spoiler: Kingdom of Sorrow]] in ''VideoGame/Klonoa2LunateasVeil''. [[spoiler: As it turns out, it was sealed away because no one wanted to remember sorrow, and the King of Sorrow tried to undo the seal so everyone could remember sorrow.]]

* The demon in ''{{Phantasmagoria}}''.
* The Dark One of SRMTHFG has nothing on the Profound Darkness in ''PhantasyStarIV''; the Precursors sealed it with a ''solar system''.
* In ''PhantasyStar'' ''II'' and ''III'', you find the big bad end boss Dark Force/Dark Falz/Dark Phallus (depending on translation) in a literal Pandora's Box in the final dungeon.

* ''PhantomBrave'' features an example as the main antagonist, the demon Sulfur. Rather than the usual thousands of years of imprisonment though Sulfur is capable of coming back every 30 years, and during his imprisonment can extend enough influence into the world to wreak havoc.
* In ''PlanescapeTorment'', [[spoiler: the literal Sealed-Evil-In-A-Box]]. Also, the Monster Jug (which you can buy at a shop and open, should you feel like it).
