Tupperware Prison

Keeps your villains fresh and ready for a rainy day.

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
A Tupperware Prison is the fate of any villain who might come in handy later. Instead of being killed, the villain is bound and gagged and shoved in a box to stay crisp and crunchy to make his return for some future arc.

Tupperware Prisons may be cardboard for ease of opening.

    Would this include Oubliettes as well?

    How is this any different from Cardboard Prison?

    Combination of that and put on a bus. Also, be longer term and not necessarily easy to break out of.

    The reason that brought this up was a conversation about Bleach's Aizen at the end of the Deicide arc, since no one really believes that he's done for good, even the people in series.

    The way I read it, this sounded like a case where a dangerous fellow was imprisoned, but is eventually, willingly released to deal with some future problem. Perhaps this was their intent from the moment they imprisoned him, or perhaps they figured that, worst-case scenario, there's no way THIS guy could possibly do any worse than the problem they threw him at.

    For instance, Demolition Man has Simon Phoenix released to assassinate a guy and raise some general hell, which prompts the San Angeles police to release John Spartan to stop Phoenix.

    No examples, minimal description, and an unclear distinction from Cardboard Prison,bad title, and no action in over two years. Discarding.
