A Prison is a place for violent people, and Prisons Are Gymnasiums, so in fiction, riots are natural. The Hero usually plays a One-Man Army. Convicts and guards are usually Color Coded for Your Convenience. Riots are usually a cover-up for a Great Escape. Related to The Mutiny.

Examples of Prison Riot include:


Live-Action TV

  • Prison Break
  • Roots, on the slaveship/PrisonShip.
  • Prison riots are a constant threat in Oz. One erupts in the first season finale "A game of Checkers".
