Bob's been caught committing a crime, [[WalkingDisasterArea caused too much property damage]], or pissed the wrong people off. As punishment, he's forced to leave his city, state, or country, and never come back, often receiving a MarkOfShame in the process. In some situations, this can effectively be a death sentence, if the location from which Bob's exiled is the one safe haven in an otherwise inhospitable zone. Escaping the punishment for a crime may lead to a voluntary exile.

While being exiled can sometimes lead to WalkingTheEarth, it's ''usually'' more temporary than a WanderingJew type of curse, either by Bob finding a new place to call HomeSweetHome, or by Bob doing one specific thing to absolve himself.

Subtropes include RemittanceMan, NobleFugitive, and LockedAwayInAMonastery. Related to PutOnABus, which is a narrative tool rather than a situation. Also comparable to KickedUpstairs, which is placing a person in a position that, at first glance seems to be prestigious, but is actually a job that barely requires any work done and lacks any real power.

Can overlap with ReassignedToAntarctica if he is ordered to leave for a specific place and stay there for tasks.

When a whole group has to become collective exiles they might decide to begin TheMigration. If the group in question was the original legitimate government they may become a GovernmentInExile. If this is RecycledInSpace exiles can become SpaceCossacks.

Can be the fate of TheStateless.

Compare with PersonaNonGrata.

TruthInTelevision, of course.

** It's very heavily implied that Ryuuken Ishida is some form of exile from the rest of the Quincies, although it's [[MysteriousPast ambiguous]] as to whether his exile is enforced, self-imposed, or a mixture of both. Either way, he plays an HeroicNeutral in the story. It's also implied that Souken was an exile of some kind as well, due to a philosphical falling out between himself and the Vandenreich. [[spoiler: When Uryuu joins the Vandenreich, not only have the Quincies never heard the name Ishida before but Yhwach lies to ensure the Quincies don't find out Ryuuken exists. He is such a persona non grata that the one Quincy confirmed to have known about the Ishida family is willing to discuss Souken and Uryuu but even he will not talk about Ryuuken.]]
* Kanna from ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' was banished by her parents for [[spoiler:breaking a "dragon ball" and absorbing its energy]], and up until [[spoiler: the Chaos faction felt that they possibly need to use the ball's energy in a battle against the Harmony faction]], she wasn't suppose to return until she's reflected on her actions.

* ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'': Ten years before the start of the series, Erina's father, Azami (now Nakiri, formally Nakamura), was banished from both the family ''and'' Tootsuki Academy for the horrific abuse he subjected the child Erina to. Considering how powerful and influential Tootsuki is, it forced Azami to leave Japan and build his power base in America.

* ComicBook/GreenArrow was kicked out of Star City as a result of the end of ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueCryForJustice''. However, this is a case of ArtisticLicenseLaw: Ollie was found not guilty for [[spoiler:killing Prometheus]], but the judge overruled the verdict and kicked him out.

[[folder:Fairy Tales]]
* In "Literature/TheOneHandedGirl", the king and his wife reject the notion of killing their daughter-in-law, even though they believe her a WickedWitch and a BlackWidow; they exile her instead, because that was what her village did, and their son would never forgive them.

Unrepentant, he is then exiled to the faraway Central Continent, where he becomes adventurer "Howondaland Smith". (His family employ an Assassin-trained ninja attack lawyer to get him to drop the "Rhodes" bit from the name; he is permitted to remain a Smith as this is considered acceptably generic). The story covers part of his life as a con-man and eventual return home to Howondaland.

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* In ''Animation/TheReturnOfHanuman'', Maruti and his mother were not allowed to live in Bajrangpur anymore because the villagers thought that Maruti is a big threat (especially after his mega-MidnightSnack). That doesn't stop him from going to school in Bajrangpur though, as he has SuperSpeed.
* In ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', Jasmine threatens to get rid of Jafar when she's Queen, and he mentions at first that she'll exile him. Depending on where Agrabah is, and whether other cities would be willing to let an exile in (a traitorous vizier being the kind of exile most cities would ''not'' want to let in), being banished would likely lead to death.
* The villains from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' and [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls its sequel]] live in exile in [[HumanityEnsues the human world]]; Sunset Shimmer's is self-imposed after abandoning her studies under Princess Celestia, while the Dazzlings are explicitly stated to have been banished there.

* In ''Disney/TheLionKing'', as seen in the page quote, Simba forces himself into exile after Scar convinces him that he killed Mufasa. Scar, of course, sent the Hyenas to kill Simba immediately after, but they failed as Simba was able to escape through a thorn-infested area too narrow for the Hyenas to pursue him in. When Simba returns years later and is absolved of his guilt, [[IronicEcho he tells Scar the same words, intending on putting him in exile]].
** In ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'', Simba exiled all Scar's partisans including his widow Zira and their children.

** Garrett also went into self-exile into the Forbidden Forest after hearing about Sir Lionel's death. He then refuses to return to Camelot with his love interest Kayley, because he feels that no one will see him as a knight.

* In ''Film/WatchOnTheRhine'', anti-Nazi Kurt Muller had to flee Germany with his family in 1933.
* In ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ThePhantomMenace'', when the Jedi run into Jar Jar Binks, he's been exiled from Gungan society. That's right, Jar-Jar was kicked out because of him being clumsy. From [[NoodleIncident what little was stated in the film]], the specific reasons for his exile involved crashing Boss Nass's "heyblibber" and blowing up what was implied to be a reactor.
** Expanded Universe material elaborates that Jar Jar's crime was stealing a miniature sub from Boss Nass (the "heyblibber") and crashing it into one of the reactors powering the [[DomedHometown containment dome]] over the Gungan city, causing part of the dome to collapse and flood a portion of the city. Also, exile for varying lengths of time is a common punishment for Gungan criminals, backed by the death penalty should they return before their sentence is complete.
** ''Literature/EmpiresEnd'' later reveals that Jar Jar was exiled ''again'' for his role of allowing Palpatine's rise to power.
** In ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', Both Obi-Wan and Yoda, two of the remaining Jedi Knights following ThePurge, put themselves in exile -- Yoda due to failing to stop Palpatine and Obi-Wan to watch over Luke on Tatooine. Yoda's, though, seems a little forced, as if they needed a reason to put him on Dagobah.
* Film/{{Thor}} was banished from Asgard by his father for his disobedient actions that sparked a war between Asgardians and the Frost Giants. His banishment will serve as a truce between both worlds.

* In Creator/RobertAHeinlein's short story "Literature/{{Coventry}}", the United States has used AppliedPhlebotinum to put a force field wall around an area of the country. Because of the respect for human rights, it is the law that anyone may choose to go to Coventry rather than have to agree to psychological therapy for criminal or antisocial behavior. The protagonist, David [=MacKinnon=], is [[StrawmanPolitical a romantic idealist who imagines a paradise]] without the noisy interfering big government getting in the way of rugged freedom lovers.
** The title comes from "to send someone to Coventry", a British idiom meaning to ostracize someone, usually by not talking to them. To be sent to Coventry is to be regarded as absent.
** Coventry also featured prominently in his first book (last published) ''Literature/ForUsTheLivingAComedyOfCustoms''.
* Ayla is punished in this way at the end of ''[[Literature/EarthsChilren Clan of the Cave Bear]]'' (and for a shorter time in the middle of the book).
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%If it came up so often then at least one example should be easy.
%%%%* Comes up a lot in the ''Literature/MastersOfRome'' series.
* Marina from the ''Literature/{{Silverwing}}'' books is banished from her colony after she receives a band from humans, which acts as a MarkOfShame until she befriends Shade, who has no prejudice against humans and even envies her band.
* At the end of the last ''Literature/DoctrineOfLabyrinths'' book, ''Corambis'', [[spoiler:Felix]] comments that he must be the only person ever to be exiled from exile. (At the end of the previous book, he was exiled from Melusine for [[spoiler: destroying the mind of his lover's murderer]]; in ''Corambis'', he hasn't really done anything wrong, but the people in charge want him out of the way where he can't cause any trouble.)
* In Creator/RobertEHoward's Literature/ConanTheBarbarian story "Literature/RoguesInTheHouse," Murillo thinks that the ear given to him in a box might be a warning to leave for voluntary exile, but does not want to risk it. Later, Nabonidus asks him why he didn't take the warning, and Murillo retorts that he did not know he would be allowed to.
* In Creator/RobertEHoward's "The Shadow Kingdom", Literature/{{Kull}} himself.

* In Creator/JosephaSherman's ''Literature/TheShiningFalcon'', MaliciousSlander makes Maria and her family have to flee.
* Common in Literature/TheIcelandicSagas.
** These Icelandic outlaws were called "skógarmenn" or "skóggangsmenn" (roughly translated: "woodsmen" or "forest-walking men"). German conservative revolutionary author Ernst Jünger's (a)political archetype "der Waldgänger" ("the Forest Fleer") is loosely based on the skóggangsmaður, and on the philosophy of egoist anarchist Max Stirner.
* In ''Literature/FateOfTheJedi'', Luke Skywalker is exiled for his role in training Jacen Solo, [[APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil aka]] [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope Darth Caedus]]. He's to keep away from Jedi temples and train no one for ten years, or until he can discover why Jacen became what he did. His teenaged son Ben decides to come with him.

* In Creator/JulieKagawa's ''Literature/TheIronDaughter'', they meet with Leanansidhe, their (self-appointed) queen, and many other exiles from Nevernever. [[spoiler:By the end of the book, Meghan and Ash chose exile over giving each other up.]] In ''Literature/TheIronQueen'', Mab and Oberon offer pardons for exiles as a bribe.
* ''Literature/AnEncounterAndAnOffer'' has a fae boy being exiled from the fae realms. Why is not revealed: the fae refuses to explain, and would rather die than tell.
* At the end of the fifth ''Literature/AgeOfFire'' book, ''Dragon Rule'', [=RuGaard=] is ousted from his position as Tyr by [[WeUsedToBeFriends NiVom]] uniting the most influential dragons of the Dragon Empire against him, and is exiled from all territories of the Empire and its [[TheAlliance Grand Alliance]] under pain of death to himself and his mate Nilrasha ([[IHaveYourWife who is kept hostage]]). He's joined by his siblings -- Wistala out of familial loyalty and [=AuRon=] out of distrust of [=NiVom=] -- and his [[UndyingLoyalty undyingly loyal]] bodyguard Shadowcatch, eventually finding refuge in the distant and isolated Sadda-Vale mountains.
* Tobimar in ''Literature/TheBalancedSword''. Under certain circumstances, people in Tobimar's family have to leave their country of birth to quest for their ancestral lands and legacy. They must leave at once, and never return until they succeed.
* In Creator/MikhailAkhmanov's ''[[Literature/ArrivalFromTheDark Fighters of Danwait]]'', Zantu is a [[SpaceElves Lo'ona Aeo]], whose extended family exiled her for disobeying their wishes to become a [[BizarreAlienSexes half-female instead of a full female]] (half-females are barren, while full females are fertile). The exile is temporary, until she passes her life-bearing period, at which point there will be no risk of her getting pregnant, which should only take half a century or so (the Lo'ona Aeo live for centuries). Due to the events of the novel, Zantu ends up getting accidentally "mentally contaminated" (the Lo'ona Aeo equivalent of conception is psychic in nature) by a descendant of a HalfHumanHybrid. Since there is no longer a need for her exile, she can return to her family. Her son appears in later novels, attempting to reconnect with his father's human family.
** Averted with the [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Metamorph]] named the Exile, as he, technically, exiled himself by choosing to live out his life on the backward Earth back in the 13th century. Due to a genetic abnormality, he is only able to fully change shape once, at which point he will only be able to make small, mostly cosmetic changes to his appearance. He opts to live among humans, predicting them to eventually becoming a key player in galactic politics. He ends up playing a key role during the AlienInvasion in the first novel.
* In the ''Literature/TheBloodWarTrilogy'', Arrin is exiled from the Kingdom for his crime of [[DefiledForever being in a consensual relationship with the Princess.]] The only reason he was spared execution is because of the Princess' pleading.
* ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'':
** Trull Sengar is exiled for speaking out against his people's new ruler and eventually refusing to kill their incapacitated Emperor so he can be [[ResurrectiveImmortality resurrected]] to full health. The exile is called Shorning, and means everyone has to forget he ever existed, even his family. He is chained to a wall in another realm and has spells laid on him to ensure he will not starve but slowly drown in the rising sea levels of that realm. He is freed on a whim by Onrack the Broken, [[spoiler:but never really makes it back to his people.]]
** Redmask is said to have been exiled for speaking out against his tribe's Elders, after they refused to allow him to unite the clans against their envading neighbours. In ''Literature/ReapersGale'', he returns and forces his way on the clans, after most of the Elders who exiled him have died.
* In ''Literature/TheShatteredKingdoms'', Norlanders have a religious commandment/prophecy saying that anyone who is physically impure (which they take to encompass any kind of disfigurement, permanent injury, or disability) is cursed and must be abandoned in the wilderness, where any not judged worthy of a good god's cure will join an evil god's army. In fact, there's a hidden community of surviving exiles, and those who know about it conclude that the "cursed" stuff is therefore nonsense. In fact, [[spoiler:there's a grain of truth to the commandment, but the Norlanders have been completely misinterpreting it — it's supposed to be instructions for the temporary quarantine and treatment of disease victims, not the permanent banishment of "deformed" people.]]
* Mitth'raw'nuruodo, the future [[Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy Grand Admiral Thrawn]], is dumped on a deserted planet with no means of escape by his own people, the Chiss, for his disregard for their military tradition of never practicing preemptive warfare or being the ones to ShootTheDog. By accident or design, he's found by an Imperial ship and eventually returns to the Unknown Regions, but while he has the firepower to do so, he never seems to challenge his exile and return or exact any kind of revenge, instead protecting his people by [[TakeAThirdOption using the Empire's resources to build his own empire around them.]]
* In ''Literature/DragonridersofPern'' exile is the preferred punishment for capital crimes. Dragonriders teleport the condemned to deserted islands, where they're left with a small amount of supplies and no means of escape.
* In the ''Literature/NightRunner'' series, Seregil has been exiled from his homeland, Aurënen, because of a crime he committed when he was younger. When he gets to go back temporarily as a diplomatic envoy in the third book he is referred to as "The Exile" instead of his real name.
* ''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Mr.15 was banished from the Bladi Clan and chased out of his home country because he practiced the DarkArts. By the time Eric meets him, he's plotting his triumphant return via coup.


[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/TheFugitive'' is the TropeCodifier.
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Twice with House Targaryen! Once from Valyria (they were the original lords of Dragonstone, Stannis' seat), and then again from Westeros after Robert's Rebellion. Daenerys and Viserys have spent the time since Robert's Rebellion (when Viserys was a very young child and Daenerys was just born - even from her birth, her family had already been effectively ousted from power and were residing on Dragonstone) seeking supporters and running from enemies in the Free Cities. After her birth, they were smuggled across the narrow sea to Braavos; where they spent a few years in relative safety before their guardian died of old age. Thus, Viserys had to drag her to nearly all nine of the Free Cities as a pair of orphaned runaways trying to gather some modicum of support. In ''Winter is Coming'', the first episode of the series, Dany is still baffled that Illyrio has let them stay in his manse as guests for ''almost a year''; inferring just how much the pair had to move.
** Ser Jorah Mormont fled Westeros to avoid punishment for selling slaves. Later, he is also banished from Meereen and Daenerys' side when Daenerys discovers from Barristan that he was initially spying on her for Robert Baratheon.
** Season 4 ends with several prominent characters departing Westeros to become this. After escaping through the help of his brother Jaime and Varys, both Tyrion and Varys escape to an unknown destination after Tyrion kills Shae and Tywin.
* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' had four: Garak was tacitly banned from returning to his homeworld under threat of death. Like Rick Blaine from ''Casablanca'' (on which the show drew some inspiration), his exact crime is never revealed but his reputation is so infamous that when he's exiled, he chooses to live on [=DS9=] because, as Sisko once observes, for a man in trouble with the highest levels of the Cardassian government, a Bajoran-owned, Federation-controlled region is very probably the safest place in the entire Alpha Quadrant for him to live. Worf landed in hot water for siding with the Federation over the Klingon government in a military matter. Odo got the boot for killing a fellow Changeling, something unheard of in their civilization. Quark was blacklisted from Ferengi society for reneging on a contract. Each of these characters' exiles were lifted by the end.
** Garak's crime is revealed in the Franchise/StarTrekExpandedUniverse novel ''A Stitch in Time'' (which takes place after the end of the Dominion War but is full of {{flashback}}s to Garak's early years). He falls for a woman of a higher political stature, who ends up marrying a social equal. They start meeting in secret, only for Enabran Tain (Garak's father and boss) to reveal that her husband knows about the meetings and needs to be quietly "removed". The husband ends up kidnapping Garak, so Garak is forced to make a quick and dirty kill instead. Had he done it quietly, without leaving evidence of the Obsidian Order's involvement, he probably would've remained on Cardassia Prime. As it is, Tain feels that Garak is a failure and exiles him. Besides, leaving him on the homeworld, would leave Garak open to retribution by the dead man's powerful family.
* ''Series/MythQuest'': In one myth, Cleo is exiled because the family she is with becomes convinced she's a witch.
* Carl Cassimon in ''Series/{{Salamander}}'' is a former policeman who left the force out of guilt for killing a criminal suspect, and because he had an affair with his best friend's wife. He escapes the world by becoming a monk - albeit in a jolly UsefulNotes/{{Belgi|um}}an monastery where the religious brothers have beer, a bar, Internet access and a pool table.
* In ''Series/{{The 100}}'', prince Roan of the Ice Nation was banished as a result of a war between his clan and Lexa's coalition. Roan's mother, queen Nia, had Lexa's lover tortured and beheaded, so when Lexa won the war one of her diktats was Roan's banishment. In the third season, he tries to capture Clarke and deliver her to Lexa, hoping that she would lift his banishment in exchange.
* ''Series/TheHandmaidsTale'': Luke and other American emigres who fled to Canada. They had to flee persecution and cannot go home. A "Little America" has been set up in Toronto by the refugees.
* The very first episode of ''Series/DoctorWho'' had the Doctor claim that he and his granddaughter were exiles from their home planet, though later episodes retconned it as more of a self-imposed exile. He was more properly this as the Third Doctor who spent most of his tenure stranded on Earth with his TARDIS disabled and his knowledge of time travel erased as punishment for violating the Time Lords' [[AlienNonInterferenceClause non-interference policy]].
* ''Series/FatherBrown'': Edward and Jia-Li become exiles at the end of "The Prize of General Gerard". After Jia-Li murders Gerard rather than [[WifeHusbandry submit to being his mistress,]] she and Edward, who had fallen in love with each other, flee Britain with forged passports. Father Brown, having satisfied himself that Jia-Li was truly repentant for killing Gerard, turns a blind eye to their escape.

* ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'': Takua (but he's later allowed back), Malum, and Strakk.

** The mighty [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Bloodthirster]] Skarbrand [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Exiled One]], in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'' and ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' was exiled from [[WarGod Khorne’s]] realm for being manipulated into attacking the Blood God himself. Since his exile Skarbrand has shed more blood and reaped more skulls than he did before his fall from grace, serving his god more faithfully than ever before.
** In ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'' some [[OurOgresAreHungrier Ogors]] are forced to take up the life of a wandering mercenary, known as a Maneater, after falling out with their fellows and being banished from their tribe. Such Ogors don’t mind their situation however as they are now able to be paid for doing what they enjoy most, fighting.
** Eldrad Ulthran from ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' was exiled from his [[PlanetSpaceship Craftworld]] of Ulthwé after his unsanctioned attempt to awaken the [[SpaceElves Eldar]] God of the Dead led to the theft of dozens of the petrified Crystal Seers from Craftworlds across the galaxy, and a ritual that, when it failed, put every [[BrainUploading Infinity Circuit]] in grave danger.
** Space Marines can be exiled for some great failure or transgression. Some few fight to earn their way back to their Chapter, perhaps with a stint in the Deathwatch or serving the Imperium in some other way; others, with no hope for return, join the Deathwatch's elite Black Shields, who sever all ties with their Chapter and their past; still others succumb to resentment or the flaws that got them cast out in the first place and become Chaos Marines, often taking the red cross of the Red Corsairs and swearing themselves to the service of Huron Blackheart.

* Romeo from ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' was banished from Verona for killing Tybalt.
** Exile shows up as a common theme - especially in the historical plays - in Shakespeare's works, mostly because [[TruthInTelevision it was a common political tool]] throughout British history well into the 18th Century.
* Elphaba in ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'' becomes one after [[FakingTheDead faking her death]], as she can never return to Oz.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The main character of ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords'' [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep is called 'The Exile']] no matter what name you pick for her. Getting to the bottom of the circumstances around the main character's exile from the Jedi Order makes up most of the game's story. Canonically, the Exile is female and is named Meetra Surik.
* [[spoiler:General Azimuth]] in ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime''. Ratchet looks for him upon hearing that [[spoiler:he's a Lombax]].
* Tali's sidequest in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' has her accused of treason against the Migrant Fleet, and can end with her being convicted and exiled.
** One of the quarians in the book, ''[[Literature/MassEffectAscension Mass Effect: Ascension]]'' was an exile. Though in his case, unlike Tali, there were very good reasons.
* The Vault Dweller from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout|1}}'' is exiled from Vault 13 at the end of the game, since the Overseer believes he/she has been changed too much by the outside world.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', the Lone Wanderer gets kicked out permanently because s/he's a bad influence. The reason Amata (Overseer Alphonse Almodovar's daughter and your only friend there) tells you that you can't stay is that your presence would tear apart the fragile peace made after ''you'' talk down (or kill) the current overseer (either Alphonse or fellow vault dweller Allen Mack). Seeing how the rest of the surviving populace see you as the reason for all the deaths that occurred despite the radroaches already swarming years before [[spoiler: your father arrived]] and Alphonse rescinding the ok [[spoiler:to let the doors open]]. Fellow vault kid [[http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Susie_Mack Susie Mack]] is somewhat suprised to see you in the Capital Wasteland if you negotiate peace but states that you still can't come back because everyone ''still'' hates you.
* Lloyd and Genis in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' get exiled from their hometown, Iselia, after [[DoomedHometown it gets burned down]] by the Desians because they went to the nearby Human Ranch, a forbidden act according to the non-agression pact made between Iselia and the Desians.
* ''Franchise/DragonAge'':
** Dwarves who step onto the surface for any reason are declared "lost to the Stone," stripped of their caste and any ability to hold a legal job back in Orzammar. They still come back, and in fact the trade the surface dwarves bring is the only thing keeping the ancient city alive, but they're treated as criminals and complete non-citizens. It's perfectly legal to kill a casteless dwarf in public with no repercussions.
** Most of the main characters in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' fall into this category in one form of another. The Hawke family had to leave Ferelden after the [[DoomedHometown destruction of Lothering]], Aveline is the daughter of a exiled-in-disgrace Orlesian Chevalier, Varric's family was stripped of their Noble status and exiled from Orzammar for fixing Provings, Fenris is an escaped slave on the run from Tevinter Magisters, Anders is on the run after deserting the Grey Wardens, Merrill is a pariah amongst the Dalish and may end up exiled from her clan, while Prince Sebastian Vael was [[LockedAwayInAMonastery sent to the Chantry]].
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', one of Bull's Chargers is surfacer dwarf called Rocky. He says he got exiled from Orzammar for "stupid noble crap"...before sheepishly admitting to blowing up a good chunk of the Shaperate.
* Every inhabitant of ''VideoGame/PathOfExile'''s Wraeclast that isn't a native or one of the Empire's Black Guard is one of these, including your player character.
* Prominent in the [[ExcusePlot largely-irrelevant backstory]] to survival[=/=]city-building game ''VideoGame/{{Banished}}''. You start with a certain number of families who've been thrown out of their home village, [[NoodleIncident in circumstances which are left to the player's imagination]], plus whatever useful supplies they could grab on their way out and must guide them in their quest to build a new home for themselves.
* In ''VideoGame/CrusaderKings'' you can banish imprisoned vassals. Which is seen as less tyrannical than executing them and has the fringe benefit of confiscating their titles.
* Hot Coldman, the villain of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'', was removed from his position as head of the CIA and sent to the CIA's South American branch because of his role in [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater the Virtuous Mission]]. It's less to do with it being a failure, and more to do with [[spoiler: his sending America's greatest war heroes into the Soviet Union to steal a large amount of money and sending her needlessly to her death out of spite.]]
* In the ''VideoGame/{{Exile}}'' trilogy and its remake series ''VideoGame/{{Avernum}}'', The Empire, which controls the entire surface, discovered a series of massive underground caverns, and they decided it would be a perfect spot for exiling all undesirables to for crimes both real and imagined. Enough people were sent down below to form a nation of their own. In the most of the games you play as the Exiles[=/=]Avernites and their allies except for the fifth game, where you play as the Imperials.
* In ''VideoGame/GemsOfWar'', Luther, the quest-giver for Broken Spire, is an exiled knight out to redeem himself by completing his original job. With your help, of course. He doesn't go home when it's done, instead joining you permanently.
* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' backstory, most of the [[OurElvesAreBetter races of Mer (Elves)]] have split apart over religious differences. For most of Altmeri (High Elf) history, those who dissented with traditional Altmer beliefs simply left to resettle elsewhere and practice their unorthodox beliefs. The [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]], Chimer, and Ayleids are several prominent examples of this. This has left the Altmer, as a culture, rather unaccustomed to dealing with dissidents in their homeland. With most of Tamriel now claimed and populated, the number of dissidents in the Summerset Isles swelled in the 3rd and 4th Eras, leading to a rise in [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized extremism and domestic terrorism]].
* Zig-zagged in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' -- after the player and the Scions of the Seventh Dawn are accused of [[spoiler:apparently murdering Nanamo ul Namo]], they end up on the run, with only the player, Alphinaud and Tataru escaping and arriving in Ishgardian territory. It's zig-zagged because, in all honesty, the exile was never really enforced -- [[spoiler:the leaders of Gridania and Limsa Lominsa refused to say anything and forced those in Ul'dah not to, the citizens who did know of what you did aren't convinced of your guilt or are terrified to say anything and talking to some of the soldiers who are trying to get your head reveal that they're still loyal to you and your friends.]]

* In the ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures'' story ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', a major storyline revolves around four Exile characters who live AfterTheEnd: Wayward Vagabond, Peregrine Mendicant, Aimless Renegade and Windswept Questant. The reasons for their exiles have been vaguely hinted towards in their storyline, but they've been revealed in the present day as "Warweary Villein", "Parcel Mistress", "Authority Regulator" and [[spoiler:"White Queen"]].
** Another Exile, the Writ Keeper, has been mentioned. [[spoiler: Yeah, he's the "White King".]]
** There's also Expatriate Darkleer, who was banished for taking pity on the Disciple and letting her escape, and Grandma English (also known as [[spoiler: Alpha Jade]]), who ran an unsuccessful revolution against Betty Crocker.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Vattu}}'', Seri is expelled from the tribe because one of her lies caused Hunter's death.
** Another Webcomic/{{Overside}} story, "Waiting In Surya", features Calabash exiled to the titular PlaceWorseThanDeath.
* In ''Webcomic/OurLittleAdventure'', [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0238.html Stratus's Planeshift brought him to a place he is not leaving.]]
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Durkon Thundershield was ordered by his church to go to the human lands and not return until they send for him. They have no intention of ever doing so, due to a prophecy stating that Durkon will bring death and destruction with him when he returns. However, a separate prophecy states that he will eventually return home... posthumously. [[spoiler:[[ProphecyTwist He's recently been killed and raised as a vampire.]] [[OhCrap And he's traveling with the rest of the Order to the last Gate... which is in Dwarven lands.]]]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* [[CaptainObvious Obviously]], all of the Outcasts in ''{{Literature/Tasakeru}}''.
* Parodied in ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}'', when WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic dramatically exiles WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob from Kickassia for treason, intending for him to walk in shame and solitude across the desert. Since the nation is question is not too far from a nearby town (complete with comfy hotel), the Snob has his phone to call for a cab and things in Kickassia are beginning to get a bit crazy thanks to the Nostalgia Critic [[DrunkWithPower going mad with power]], the Snob isn't as bothered by this as the Critic would probably like. Not to mention the fact that the intended gravitas is lost when everyone's waving goodbye behind his back.
** After the event is over, in his next video, the Critic sheepishly alludes to being forbidden from returning to Nevada.
* Several characters in ''Roleplay/TheGunganCouncil'' have been exiled for several reasons:
** Abigail Taylor was tried and exiled from the Chiss Ascendancy for no real reason other than no one could defend her against a hostile judge.
** Ti'Cira, Je'gan, and Caleb were exiled by the Jedi Council for beginning a massive crusade that ended up killing everyone on Taris.
** All Nightsisters from Dathomir.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' involved Stan refusing to vote on the new school mascot (the choices were a giant douche and a turd sandwich) and being banished from the town in a ritual involving being tied to a donkey and spat upon. [=PETA=] finds him and complains about the mistreatment of the donkey.
* Zuko from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', banished from the fire nation by his father the Fire Lord until he finds and defeats the Avatar. Also [[spoiler:his mother, Ursa, was banished for killing the previous Fire Lord to save Zuko's life]].
* WonderWoman from the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' was exiled from [[LadyLand Themyscira]], because she had broken the law that forbade anyone from bringing men onto the island (which she did to save her mother and her fellow Amazons). It's implied that Queen Hippolyta lifted the banishment after Wonder Woman and Hawkgirl returned to Themyscira to save them all.
* In the original ''WesternAnimation/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|1987}}'' toon, part of Krang's backstory was that he had been exiled from Dimension X.
* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', [[TheLostWoods the Everfree Forest]] is mentioned and imagined several times as a place of banishment.
** During the episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagics3E5MagicDuel Magic Duel]]", Trixie banishes Twilight from Ponyville and conjures a giant dome around town to keep her out in a bit of DisproportionateRetribution for unintentionally humiliating her [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E6BoastBusters in her last visit]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', Puck wanted to delay his return to Avalon because he found the mortal world too amusing [[spoiler:especially while working for Xanatos as Owen.]] After yet another act of defiance from Puck, Lord Oberon decided to [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor grant Puck's wish]] by banishing him from Avalon ''forever''. Puck's horrified reaction and pleas for reconsideration make it clear that he still saw Avalon as his home and did want to see it again someday.
* ''WesternAnimation/SofiaTheFirst'':
** In "The Tale of the Noble Knight", [[spoiler:Sir Oliver ends up being exiled from Brazendell for provoking dragons into attacking the kingdom]].
** In "Day of the Sorcerers", [[spoiler:as a condition for Cedric to keep his position as the Royal Sorcerer, King Roland demands him to remember it's because of Sofia he's not being exiled.]]

[[folder:Real Life]]
* In Ancient Athens politicians (and other prominent citizens, but usually politicians) could be "ostracized"[[note]]from ''ostrakon'', meaning "shard of broken pottery", since the vote was recorded by scratching or painting the name onto scraps of pottery[[/note]] by vote, or ordered to leave town for ten years. In this case it was not a punishment and did not necessarily imply social infamy. Nor did the victim have his property officially seized by the state (although if he didn't have friends or guards to keep an eye on it, it might be unofficially seized by his neighbors). It was usually simply a declaration that "Athens can't afford to have you in town right now and is frankly afraid that you will cause a bloody civil war. Leave for a few years and then come back and we'll see. NothingPersonal old chap."
** That said, people could be ostracized for any reason; the procedure for ostracism was to ask the ''ekklesia'' (assembly of free male citizens) whether they wanted to ostracize someone, and if so, then vote on who. Famously, Aristides [[TheMagnificent the Just]] once found a man with an ''ostrakon'' who asked him for help in writing Aristides' name (he was illiterate and also didn't know what Aristides looked like); Aristides (being just) wrote the name for him and asked him why he wanted to ostracize Aristides, and the man replied, "I'm just so tired of hearing people call him 'the Just'!"
** In ancient Greece it was also quite common when one faction of the local oligarchy (aristocracy) overcame the other that the winners would drive the losers out of the country (polis). Sometimes exiled politicians would stir up trouble abroad, as happened during the Persian Wars with former Athenian tyrant Hippias and deposed Spartan king Demaratos and with the Athenian Alcibiades during the Peloponnesian War.
* Several British Royal and Noble families who on the losing end of a power struggle, most famously the Stuarts and their "Jacobite" supporters.
** Henry Bolingbroke, first cousin to Theatre/RichardII, was exiled before participating in a duel (the other duellist was exiled as well) in 1398. When Henry's father died, Richard seized all of Henry's inherited properties. This drove Henry to return from exile with an army and overthrew the unpopular Richard, becoming Theatre/HenryIV in the process.
* The Jewish People as a whole after the UsefulNotes/JewishRevolts.
** And before that in the Babylonian Exile (see several books of the Bible).
* UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte had this happen to him twice. The first time, in 1814, he was given the isle of Elba to rule after being overthrown, which he was not allowed to leave. His response was to escape and take control of France again, thereby nullifying the peace treaty of 1814. After the Battle of Waterloo, his enemies sent him further away to St. Helena as a prisoner. This time, it stuck.
* The company name of Creator/InXileEntertainment not-entirely-seriously-but-not-entirely-humorously refers to most of its core employees, including the CEO Brian Fargo, being exiled from Creator/InterplayEntertainment (which Fargo founded and headed until his resignation) by its new management.
* United Empire Loyalists were those who had supported the crown during UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution but had to leave following the Treaty of Paris in 1783. At least 45,000 from the hitherto Thirteen Colonies relocated, mostly to New Brunswick (which was carved out of Nova Scotia to accommodate them) and Upper Canada (now Ontario) - many freed slaves and native tribes such as the Iroquois also followed. The mass influx of non-French into Canada, as well as the general suspicion towards the rather violenty-established "mob rule" that took hold in the United States guided the organization of Canada in the 19th and 20th Centuries.
* Since TheSixties Cubans that opposed Fidel Castro and the communist government following Castro's overthrow of the Batista regime in 1959 have fled and now live overseas: there are now over a million Cuban-Americans (Cuba's population in 2012 was 11.1 million) living in the United States alone, the vast majority in and around Miami and Tampa. The exile community's hostility to the Cuban government and their importance in elections (Florida is considered a swing state and has many electoral votes) is a major reason for the United States' continued embargo against Cuba (though that doesn't stop the US from being Cuba's 5th largest exporter).
** Castro himself was an exile before that, released from prison in 1955 and spending about 18 months in Mexico.
* Similar to Cuba, most of the Vietnamese-American population come from refugees fleeing their homeland following the Fall of Saigon in 1975, fearing reprisals from the victorious communist government. Many still hold strong opposition to the communist Vietnamese government, frequently still flying the South Vietnamese flag during Tet parades and such.
** Lots of Hmong (a specific people originating from mountainous areas of Vietnam, Laos, and South China) fled the Indochinese peninsula after the Vietnam Wars, because they sided with the French then the Americans. The most important Hmong diasporas are in French Guyana and in Minnesota.
* An unofficial version exists in 21st Century America. In some locales, after a convicted sex offender has served their sentence, they're still forbidden from living within a certain distance of schools, playgrounds, and other areas frequented by children. Depending on how large that distance is, and how many areas are designated as off-limits, a sex offender may find that there is literally no place in a given city where they're legally allowed to reside.
** The above can lead to very...shall we say ''unusual'' effects. A town in Iowa was shocked to find out how many sex offenders were living in and around their town and quickly passed laws that made it impossible for them to live there, so they packed up and went to the next town. The second town was then shocked to find out how many sex offenders were living in and around their town and quickly passed laws that made it impossible for them to live there, so they packed up and went to the next town. Then the third town down the road, and the fourth, and so forth and so on. The cumulative effect was a statewide east-to-west ''migration'' of those on the registry.
** For years the underside of the Julia Tuttle Causeway in Miami was where an impromptu shantytown of those on the sex offender registry existed, as strict limits meant the nearest place where a sex offender could live wasn't even in Miami-Dade County (they would have to move to Broward County). The camp had at its height about 140 people, plumbing, and electricity from generators; it also became an unofficial part of the Miami prison system, as a parole officer was sent there every night to make sure everyone was accounted for at curfew. The camp was dismantled shortly after newspapers publicized its existence, though trying to find a residence for those on the registry remains a major problem because every community is opposed to taking them in, many of them vehemently.
* This happened to the House of Savoy as a consequence of Vittorio Emanuele III's support for Mussolini and dragging Italy in WorldWarII on the losing side. Interestingly enough, this happened in two phases:
** The first phase was when Vittorio Emanuele III had to abdicate and leave the country with his wife, as even monarchists considered him a hindrance and an actual danger to the monarchy in the impending referendum to choose between monarchy and republic.
** After the referendum choose for the republic, king Umberto II pointed out various irregularities, [[MyCountryRightOrWrong ordered his supporters to support the republic for the good of Italy, and then left with wife and heir, preceding the ''constitutional exile'' for the "former kings, their consorts and male descendants". As the exile was always meant to end once the danger of civil war had expired, the constitution was amended in 2002 to allow the return of the exiles... At which point they proceeded to prove it may not have been such a good idea (and why Umberto II, even in exile, made sure to take down as many chances of the monarchy being restored as he could) when they sued the government for the exile (the lawsuit was since dropped).
