* 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).

** The Tonberry enemies in the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series also appear to be like this. Despite their [[NotSoHarmlessVillain goofy appearance]], their Grudge attacks suggest that they're like vessels for all the malice and wrath of slain monsters.

* In the Expansion Pack of ''VideoGame/BaldursGate 2'', the BonusBoss is the avatar of a very powerful demon lord. You are asked to reseal him in his prison as he's about to break free. Alternatively, you can fight him in an epic battle. However, if you win, you realize that demon lords in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' come BackFromTheDead very, very quickly ''by definition.'' So it will happen, though not for the rest of the game. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Good going]].
** Well they don't actually die, destroying their physical form returns them to their home plane, in his case it frees his avatar back into the abyss to be reabsorbed by the real one.

* In DarkMessiahOfMightAndMagic the Demon lord is locked in a prison under the city of Stonehelm, however the original prison is flawed and can be broken, the player can choose to get the good ending and seal him away forever by repairing the seal or get the bad ending by releasing him.
