* ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}} and the Pirate's Curse'' has the Pirate Master, a great evil from the past who was sealed in a lonely grave on a small island after all the full genies of the world performed a HeroicSacrifice. Unfortunately, he was unexpectedly revived when a new source of Dark Magic suddenly appeared before the start of the game.

* Coincidentally, ''VideoGame/{{Homeworld}}: Cataclysm'' also involves a similar scenario. Somewhere around a million years ago, the extragalactic exploration vessel ''[[MeaningfulName Naggarok]]'' picked up a deadly technoorganic entity in hyperspace. Seeing no way to defeat it, the crew scuttled the engines, trapping the entity in deep space. However, they screwed up as the ship auto-launched az empty lifepod with a transmitter (and some Beast material) onboard. In the present, the Kiith Somtaaw mining ship ''Kuun-Lan'' finds the pod and opens it. Cue to a race with time to find both the ''Naggarok'' and the new Beast mothership and blow both to smithereens before the whole galaxy suffers a fate worse than death (ship crews aren't simply killed, they're broken down into biomass to function as a makeshift neural interface between ships and the Beast - and judging by the sound of it, it's not exactly painless).

** The Black Chests are a lesser case of this. [[spoiler:The "curses" they inflict upon Mario are actually useful abilities. Justified in that the inhabitants of the chests are the former heroes who defeated the Shadow Queen 1,000 years ago.]]

* Seems to be the case with the [[spoiler: Kingdom of Sorrow]] in ''VideoGame/{{Klonoa}} 2'': Lunatea's Veil. [[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.]]

* A significant portion of the plot of ''BraveFencerMusashi'' revolves around this. The first major quest in the game involves Musashi being sent to collect Lumina, the legendary greatsword used to defeat the Wizard of Darkness; a significant portion of the rest of the game revolves around Musashi questing to recover the elemental Scrolls in order to power Lumina up enough to take out the Thirstquencher Empire. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, it turns out the voice which set Musashi on this quest in the first place, a voice originating from Lumina itself, was actually the Wizard of Darkness himself, not destroyed but sealed within the sword. Guess what the only things holding him back are? If you guessed "the five Scrolls and the Crest Guardians they're connected to," you win the kewpie doll.]]

* In ''GuildWars'', Palawa Joko suffers this fate. Then there's Abaddon and everyone else locked in the Realm of Torment, including [[spoiler: the Titans from the first game]]. Ultimately, in an attempt to stop Varesh Ossa from opening a gate to the Realm of Torment, you have to let Palawa Joko out of his prison.

* In ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime: Hunters'', "the ultimate power" broadcast in a telepathic message throughout the galaxy is actually [[spoiler: the sealed evil Gorea, originally a [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere Giant Space Flea]] run amok and the presumed source of the message.]] This is one of the few cases where the good (the Alimbics) weren't strong enough to kill the evil, just entangle its energy with theirs in the Seal Sphere and hide it in a pocket dimension. [[spoiler: You arrive at the Seal Sphere only to see the other Hunters pounding away at it like idiots. They break it open, then stare as the core of the Seal Sphere (the Alimbics' energies) is snatched by Gorea, who proceeds to impale all of them with tentacles from the Sphere and steal their energies (weapons). You saw this coming, or at least you WOULD if you've scanned at least 25% of the Alimbic lore hanging around the place... Anyway, this leaves you to clean up the mess (kick Gorea's ass).]]
