* Kylie, in ''Film/{{Housebound}}'', is remanded to her parents' custody and confined to their house with an ankle monitor.
* Kale, in ''Film/{{Disturbia}}'', is under house-arrest with the corresponding ankle bracelet when finds that the neighbor may have more sinister hobbies.


* Julian Assange of Wikileaks, threatened with extradition from the UK to Sweden to face rape charges, sought diplomatic asylum in London's Ecuadorian embassy in 2012, claiming his arrest warrant was merely an excuse to have him extradited to the USA to face politically-motivated espionage charges (and thus potentially the death penalty). As of 2018, he's still there, and numerous stories have leaked of the long seclusion having a negative effect on his health, and on the sanity of both Assange and the embassy staff. He and his supporters have outright described his (technically voluntary) confinement as "imprisonment".

* ''FanFic/MermaidMelodyPichiPichiDuo'': In order to keep them safe from Dr. Hishki, Nikora gathers all seven Mermaid Princesses and declares that they're forbidden to leave the Pearl Piari for any reason until the threat has passed. It doesn't take long for the group to sneak out, and after Nikora has a talk with Maki over it and is nearly captured by Hishki's minions herself, she relents as long as they be careful and watch their backs.

* Beacon Academy itself becomes this for Roman Torchwick and [[spoiler:Headmaster]] Jaune Arc in ''FanFic/ProfessorArc'', given there's still a lot of Atlesian military forces outside. Both are still technically wanted men since they escaped military custody, though popular opinion is beginning to push for the charges to be thrown out, since they were pivotal in repulsing Cinder's vast attack on Vale.

In modern usage, this trope can be explicitly judicial or more a matter of political control. House arrest (a common punishment for juveniles and a sentence pronounced by actual courts of law) and not being allowed to leave the city (because there is a pending court procedure involving you) are examples of the former. Whenever the government of a country doesn't allow its citizens to travel abroad, or at least significantly limits their possibility to do so (a notable example was EastGermany) would fall under the latter category. Of course, some of the judicial uses of this are for political "offences".

* Dragon historian Jin Jae-Hoon is imprisoned in one of these in ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld''. More specifically, his prison is Seoul - as in ''an entire city.'' Since the Dragon need him around to serve as their chronicler, he can spend his time anywhere within the city limits, but attempting to leave will only result in the [[WarriorMonk Silent Monks]] being sent out to retrieve him; plus, the Dragon are [[TheChessmaster masters of predicting and manipulating events]], so there's no point in running anyway. By now, Jae-Hoon's adjusted to his incarceration, and spends his days lounging in the foyer of the Kumiho Hotel, listening to the music and reviewing his notes until someone asks him a question.

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' Sirius is forced to stay in the house he ran away from as a teenager since the Ministry of Magic is hunting for him and has already shown that they will sentence him to a [[FateWorseThanDeath Dementor's Kiss]] without trial the moment they get their hands on him. While the family that abused him is all dead and gone their portraits and Kreacher still spout their xenophobic rhetoric constantly and drive him a bit mad; noticeably he only starts comparing Harry to his father as if he should behave like his dad after being stuck in the house for months.
