* ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' features a memorable subversion -- the MacGuffin of the game is a sarcophagus that supposedly contains an Antediluvian (very old, ''very'' powerful vampire). Everyone is trying to make a move for the sarcophagus, partially because the presence of such a thing might be a herald of [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Gehenna]] -- but also because a low-generation vampire represents a ''massive'' power grab for anyone willing to commit diablerie (the consumption of another vampire's soul). Well, the Prince has been pushing you around all game in an attempt to claim the sarcophagus, and when it's finally opened... [[spoiler: the only thing he finds is a ''lot'' of C4. And a note from the guy who set the whole thing in motion. Boom.]]

* The main storyline of ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' focuses around preventing Dagoth Ur, a godlike being imprisoned for 3500 years, from fully regaining his sealed powers.(though he wasn't imprisoned but passed out)
** Likewise, in its followup, ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', the player must prevent Mehrunes Dagon, lord of the titular realm, from unleashing his forces upon the world. Dagon isn't really sealed IN anything so much as he is kept OUT. In this case, the world is the Can Sealed Against Evil.
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', the SealedEvilInACan is Alduin. And he isn't unsealed by someone playing around with something they know nothing about, but was an inevitability since his sealing involved him being cast adrift outside of time. A prophecy describes the events that must transpire before he would end up back in linear time again. There are also many other smaller evils sealed all around Skyrim, specially in Nordic ruins.

*** [[BigBad Dagoth]] [[PhysicalGod Ur]] and his minions have been sealed within [[{{Mordor}} Red Mountain]] by the [[DeityOfHumanOrigin Tribunal]] with the [[TheGreatWall Ghostfence]]. However, as the power

* 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.

** 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.]]
