Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })There is something creepy about people in jars. Jarring, even.
So just like most everything else people find creepy for various reasons, writers like putting people in jars. Experimentation, containment, study, incubation, medical reasons or just plain old sucking out their Life Force. Some writers just love putting people in jars and especially love comparing them to insects or pickled specimens.
The people themselves are almost always alive, but unconscious, usually in some form of suspended animation.
If these are being used to make better soldiers, it's often easy to tell when they're at full power, as it's quite common for the specimen to break out and start killing everyone.
Oh, call them pods, tanks, containment units or chambers all you like. These are people in jars.
If the goal is specifically to extract some resource from the people, it's a form of Human Resources.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })This is often how cryogenics is depicted in fiction, but is absolutely nothing like any Real Life equivalents.
Compare Brain in a Jar, Soul Jar, Crystal Prison and Girl in a Box, a gender-specific form of this trope. Contrast to Man in the Machine, in which the subject (while still physically constrained by a container of some sort) is typically conscious, mobile, and/or able to express autonomy.
See Uncanny Valley for the audience's reaction.

Narbonic: The final arc has a group of hamsters plotting to capture the world's geniuses and most creative minds and trap them in jars to power a device intended to wipe out the rest of humanity. Well, actually the rest of all sentient life on Earth. They haven't yet figured out how to fix that problem.

The Far Side had quite a few of the "humans are bugs" variety. One involved an alien lab tech getting scolded by his mentor for putting "two incompatible species in the Earth Terrarium", panning to a tiny human in a terrarium getting mauled by a tiny bear. Another one has one giant alien reminding the other to poke holes in the jar.
Then there were the incidents with the Hatfields and McCoys being put in the same jar, and On The Sixth Day, when God was adding Humans to his recipe for Earth, Jerks in a spice jar.
And the one where a boy liberates a genie and uses his first two wishes to put his parents in jars. The third wish is just the icing on the cake.

The Empire Strikes Back: In a less squicky moment, Luke Skywalker recovers from ice monster injuries and near hypothermia in a bacta tank.
The Expanded Universe and prequels had clones in jars. On Kamino, the cloned fetuses are grown in pods filled with nutrients. Pretty creepy, but even worse is the part about the clones' training: "If clones showed any signs of abnormality, they often mysteriously disappeared in the late hours of the night. This was the case of a batch of young clones whose vision was not 100% perfect."
Han Solo getting frozen in carbonite could be seen as a variation of the trope.

Abe Sapien's origin story was that he was found by workers underneath a hospital in Washington DC, floating in a suspended animation tank with a note that had the date of Abraham Lincoln's assassination and the word icthyos sapien.

Plan 7 of 9 from Outer Space. The Mad Scientist Laboratory of Dr. Zarkendorf is lined with transparent chambers each holding a gorgeous naked woman, their intimate regions covered by strategically placed machinery. When Captain Proton orders these lovely ladies to be freed from their 'toothbrush holders', Dr. Zarkendorf considers this an excellent idea and activates the women (who have been turned into his cyborg army) to attack Proton.

Anne McCaffrey, in The Ship Who... series has "shell people", who are placed in containers as infants and essentially become cyborgs, many becoming spaceships (one book has a shell person as a sentient city). In fairness, this is only done with infants with severe birth defects and does give a much better quality of life than said birth defects would normally allow the child to have.
In The Ship Who Searched, a girl about the age of ten (If I remember correctly) goes through the process of her own free will. She does fine and eventually buys a company and makes them build her a robotic body she can use, but only within her ship. And it sounds like they're working on giving her more range. Even in this case, she only signs up after being rendered quadriplegic by some alien disease.
Some related stories have adult soldiers being converted into cyborg ships, again only after being severely injured in the line of duty. In general, the world seems to consider it better than being extensively paralyzed, and it's treated as an extensive prosthetic option.

Naruto: Orochimaru's bases often have people in jars in them as experiments. A more recent one is Suigetsu, who is released by Sasuke to join him.
Yamato was also this as a child, being the only surviving/successful test subject of an experiment to infuse humans with some of the first hokage's DNA in order to give them his kekkai genkai. He was "rescued" by Danzo after the latter realized one of the test subjects still lived, and recruited into ROOT.

CABAL from the Command & Conquer: Tiberium series stands for 'Computer Assisted Biologically Augmented Lifeform'. Nod's Master Computer derives much of his/its intelligence and computing power from the brains of numerous humans suspended in fluid cylinders. The Nod ending from the Tiberian Sun: Firestorm expansion shows Kane in one of these tubes, raising further questions about exactly who or what he is. Later games reveal that he is a millennia-old alien, and was recovering at the time.

In Johannes Cabal, the titular Necromancer sometimes uses these for corpse storage:
Johannes keeps the body of his Lost Lenore under the floor of his lab in a glass tank filled with a glowing magical preservative, which insulates it from the effects of time while he searches for a method of true resurrection. At the start of the series, it's been over eight years.
Johannes steals Alisha's body after The Brothers Cabal, but has to make do with stowing her in a barrel of magical preservative. He's in a hurry to resurrect her as well, leaving his brother quite disturbed to watch him tip over the barrel and slosh out the naked corpse.

Paranoia. In early editions, clones were created inside liquid-filled tubes and stayed in the tubes until they grew to baby size. They were then decanted and allowed to grow up normally. In the most recent edition (Paranoia XP), clones are kept in tubes until their previous active member is killed, and are then decanted, have their previous active member's memories implanted in them and become the new active member.

To show just how evil Jon Irenicus is in Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, one of the first big rooms the party can find themselves in is full of jars of the man's previous servants put in there when they entered a forbidden room or asked too many questions. They are trapped and alive in the tanks, and completely forgotten by him. In another room, there's another man put there, supposedly until Jon gets around to healing him (and like before, the man either forgot or didn't care anymore). He begs to be put out of his misery, implying that he was alive and in pain for years. Imoen remarks "The things in these tanks...they used to be people."
Also, later on, he imprisons several members of the Shadow Thieves and uses them to perform some evil ritual meant to steal the main character's Baalspawn soul.
To return to Chateau Irenicus again, sometime after finding the aforementioned rooms you find another lab full of partially-grown (and partially-assembled) clones of Irenicus' old love interest, which he's been growing in an attempt to inspire any emotion in his soulless state. Safe to say, Irenicus loves his creepy glassware.

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha: The dead body of Fate Testarossa's older sister Alicia or better said, the girl Fate was cloned from is kept in a jar. Also, in StrikerS, there are scores of said girls in Scaglietti's lair, which are revealed to be his illegally-created minions, and some broken People Jars in his abandoned labs; this has something to do with the forbidden research of the first season, as well as its presumed-dead Big Bad.

Trigun: In the manga version of the SEEDs flashback, after the crew studied Tessla so extensively that they gave her cancer and she died, they dissected her corpse and left it floating in a giant jar. Where Vash and Knives found it, some years later, prompting cute little Knives' Face–Heel Turn and determination to Kill All Humans.
Plus all the normal plants live in big glass bulbs and produce goods and energy. They're not human, but they are people.
Manga Knives recovers in one. Comes out naked. Does not seem to care.

Neon Genesis Evangelion:
Rei spent a long time floating in a jar filled with LCL. Later dozens of mindless clones of Rei grown as substitute Eva pilots showed up.
It's implied that there is a similar tank full of Kaworu clones, as Units 05-13 use Kaworu-powered dummy plugs. In the manga, we see the original in a jar.

Final Fantasy VII had Zack and Cloud stuck in tanks during their years of experimentation at the hands of Mad Scientist Hojo.
In the spin-off game Dirgeof Cerberus, Vincent gets this treatment as well when he is put in a tank by Lucretia to save his life. This one's a more benign example, but he wouldn't be in that tank in the first place if it weren't for Hojo shooting him and performing horrendous experiments on his half-dead body. Especially jarring in that the cutscene is shown in first-person POV from Vincent's perspective, so essentially the player is the one inside the tank, looking out of it and unable to move.

Happens somewhat frequently in Schlock Mercenary, though these people jars are used for medical purposes (typically regrowth - i.e. from just their head) more often than not.

In a season 6 episode of American Dad!, Roger and Stan go to Area 51. In the background, an old woman can be seen floating in a jar. (this is actually a Call-Back to a season one episode where agents were chasing Roger but Stan removed the wig from the old woman and convinced the agents that she was the alien.)
It was seen more prominently in the season 3 premiere, "The Vacation Goo," when Stan puts his family in jars filled with goo that gives them false memories that they went on vacation.

In Human Curiosity, it turns out that the HCS was "killing" nations by shutting off their healing abilities, shooting them up with deadly poison, and freezing them into stasis in a pod. It's revealed later that the only reason they bothered preserving them instead of killing the nations outright is that they were afraid doing so would somehow hurt the people living in the nations.

Iron Man: When he decided to try to ruin Tony Stark's life a second time, Obadiah Stane kidnapped several of his friends and colleagues, and imprisoned them in tubes in a state of suspended animation. The room in which these people jars were in was also rigged with motion sensors that, once activated, would cause the occupants to be electrocuted in the event Iron Man attempted a rescue. Stane didn't quite count on catching Tony in just the right position to permit him to disable the trap with his Uni-beam, though.

Cryogenic tubes also feature in Fallout 4, with the residents of Vault 111 being placed inside cryo-stasis tubes shortly after the bombs fall. Sadly, only one resident survives, the others dying in frozen airless coffins plus one bullet in the skull of your spouse.

Used and subverted in Frank Herbert's Dune universe, in which genetic clones (and other creatures) are grown in 'Axolotl tanks'. The tanks are revealed to be 'people' as well.

Mass Effect 2 has the Collectors, who abducted humans and placed them in stasis pods/jars. When you come across them during your final assault on the Collector base, you learn just what they're being used for — the people are horrifically liquefied alive by nanites (including several members of your crew if you're not fast enough to save them) and used as building material for a new kind of Reaper.

Chrono Crusade: In a flashback, Rosette tries to scare her brother Joshua away from joining the order by warning him that they'll conduct experiments on him, and he's "gonna end up pickled in formaldehyde!" The anime shows a scene in her imagination of Joshua floating naked in a jar while a Mad Scientist looks on with a creepy grin. There was also the other five Apostles that the Sinners kept in jars and the clone of Azmaria's foster father's wife.

Fallout
Fallout 3: The residents of Vault 112 are kept alive in stasis while their brains live on inside a Lotus-Eater Machine.
The mutated creatures in vats at Raven Rock, some of which are never encountered anywhere else in the game, leave their purpose to speculation.
The cryotubes on Mothership Zeta, in addition to housing various human captives, also contain Raiders, Feral Ghouls (possibly Reavers), and Super Mutants.
Cryogenic tubes also feature in Fallout 4, with the residents of Vault 111 being placed inside cryo-stasis tubes shortly after the bombs fall. Sadly, only one resident survives, the others dying in frozen airless coffins plus one bullet in the skull of your spouse. And, technically, there are two survivors, since the same creep that shot your spouse took your son away.
Played straight in The Glow from the original Fallout. The lower levels of the bombed-out facility held about 100 human-sized or bigger jars, with logs dating the process of the Forced Evolutionary Virus. Most of the jars were broken, even in the parts of the facility that escaped the bombing...

In the Girl Genius Steampunk/Gaslamp Fantasy comics, Dr. Beetle, the ruler of Beetleburg, had criminals (even common thieves) sentenced to death and punished by putting them into giant glass jars. They were put up in the town square for all to see while the people inside slowly perished (presumably from heatstroke or lack of food/water and air). On the whole, the town population approved of his methods.

In Superman comics, the people of the city of Kandor spend most of their time in a jar, but it's not quite this trope in the usual sense; the entire city is in the jar and the people inside are just going about their daily lives and trying to ignore that their universe effectively ends at the City Limits signs. They probably consider that it's better than the alternative, given that pretty much every other Kryptonian city blew up along with Krypton itself.

Xenogears could arguably be based on this trope. The "Nanomachine Colony" Emeralda was sealed in a containment tank in Kim's lab, deep within the Zeboim Ruins, four thousand years before the game. Long before that, the mother of humanity, Elly was created by Abel's imagination, science, "God", or some combination thereof, and she awakens from a capsule, Kadomony, ejected from the Zohar during the Eldridge crash. Presumably, Cain and the Gazel are also created from the same device. Also, after being heavily injured by Ramsus, Fei and Elly end up in healing tanks in Melchior's house. Ramsus himself was created in a test tube by Krelian. Krelian's lab and the Soylent system also contain various human/humanoid parts floating about, some of which are in river-sized tubes.

One memorable scene in The Journeyer by Gary Jennings has Marco taken captive and locked into a large clay jar full of sesame oil, with a collar around his neck. While he's locked in, he has a visitor who explains that the victim's neck eventually softens, removing the head from the body whilst keeping the head intact. He manages to break the jar and escape, but as he runs away he steps in a large, soft mass.

Aldous Huxley's Brave New World had the human race conditioning each member of the species by birthing them in jars. Some jars were induced with alcohol and others were violently shaken so as to cause the embryo to experience arrested development — so as to make the individual more suitable to the mundane task to which it had been predestined.

Invader Zim kept a number of abducted human children in jars for his various experiments. One of whom had the reoccurring gag that, because Zim had operated on the pleasure center of his brain, was completely and profoundly happy. All the time.
All Irkens are born this way. Giant tubes probably don't seem so horrific to them...

Ergo Proxy: It turns out that the humans who survived the ecological collapse were modified humans left behind and grown from the cells of "proxies," creatures at the heart of each city, meaning everyone probably started this way. The proxies themselves, or at least the one from Romdeau, were kept in people jars as well.

In the spin-off game Dirgeof Cerberus, Vincent gets this treatment as well when he is put in a tank by Lucretia to save his life. This one's a more benign example, but he wouldn't be in that tank in the first place if it weren't for Hojo shooting him and performing horrendous experiments on his half-dead body. Especially jarring in that the cutscene is shown in first-person POV from Vincent's perspective, so essentially the player is the one inside the tank, looking out of it and unable to move.

In the third story from the Memoirs of a Space Traveller: Further Reminiscences of Ijon Tichy by Stanisław Lem, there's a creepy scientist, who keeps specimens obtained by cloning experiments in such jars. For the most part, they aren't humans, but in one large tank there's the body of the scientist himself, whose clone the current host of the laboratory turns out to be.

Are we really to believe that there is a squicky trope that Warhammer 40,000 hasn't turned up to eleven at some point? No: New Space Marine Chapters are created by force-culturing gene-seed in cloned humans in jars, each of whom has to go through the agonising process of having the auxiliary organs implanted so they (the organs, not the clones) can go through their natural life-cycle and produce two Progenoids for each set implanted, doubling and testing each "generation" until there's 1000 "pure" gene-seed sets ready for implantation into the real soldiers. Naturally, this only works on pubescent children because it keys off their natural hormonal changes.
Space Marine Dreadnoughts are essentially heavily armed and armoured people jars, serving as life support for the mortally wounded marines they're piloted by.
Ork dreadnoughts are similar, although in their case the occupants are not usually mortally wounded before being wired into the machines.
There's also the Dark Eldar. Most of them are grown artificially, whereas having normally conceived children, the "trueborn" as they're called, is a privilege only afforded to the higher-ranking Dark Eldar nobles. This explains why the Dark Eldar are actually thriving while their good-er Craftworld cousins are a Dying Race.

In Chrono Trigger, right before the boss battle in The Very Definitely Final Dungeon, you see all the playable characters floating in the tanks (except the Optional Party Member). It's rather creepy, even if it's mostly unexplained.
It is explained : These are the memories of the party, which Zeal obtained via her timebending Black Omen. She even says that when you'll lose to her, she'll use them to erase you from the timeline, thus preventing your comeback by some temporal paradox.
Chrono Cross has a scene where Serge switches bodies with Lynx. This leads to a sequence where Serge-as-Lynx has to clone himself and take over that body. We see that body grow in a jar until, at Serge's exact age, the jar shatters. This scene was popular with the female fans.

Used beneficially in Hellboy, where Abe is placed in a water-filled glass tube to recuperate after being injured by Samael. Due to his fishy nature, it was probably more comfortable and useful than putting him on a hospital bed—although it's not clear how he was supposed to get out again.

The all-too-brief "Stealing Thunder" arc of Justice Society of America had the entire metahuman community put in jars, with a few exceptions—mostly escapees and specific heroes that he needed for his own purposes.

In a mission midway through Crusader: No Remorse, the Silencer finds a facility where a bunch of Silencers are apparently being cloned to adulthood. In the last area, there are fully-grown (or nearly) naked people in jars. He kills the scientist who was working on them—but not before the scientist taunts him, implying he might have been in such a tank. Then he's ordered to kill them. He shoots the jars, and the people, still attached to the inside of the jar by wires or cables or feeding tubes, fall out and hang limply in space. Because he's unfeeling like that.

Wolf's Rain: Cheza was in a jar being studied by Cher Degre before she got busted out by Darcia. In this case, she's not being imprisoned — just studied and kept alive. The second time she gets put in a jar, it follows the trope much more closely because 1) she's been forcibly taken, 2) her most zealous bodyguard Kiba has also been locked in a nearby jar and is having his blood drained out, and 3) Jagara and her guests are drinking WOLF BLOOD in front of her, which may or may not be Kiba's. Did I mention that spilled wolf's blood in general triggers Cheza's scream reflex?

Turns up in A Cure for Wellness as hydrotherapy and sensory deprivation tanks are both used for the eponymous 'cure'. While Exploring the Evil Lair, the protagonist hides in a dark room only to turn on the lights and find it's full of naked people floating in tanks, including the executive he'd been sent to find. He thinks they've been killed, but the executive is later produced alive and Lockhart is shown in the same tanks when he starts falling under the Mad Doctor's control.

EarthBound has a scene in an alien base in which you stumble across a bunch of characters who have been recently kidnapped, stuck in glass tubes. From the dialogue, it's implied that the aliens forgot to include air holes. In one of the weirdest examples of No Ontological Inertia in videogame history, killing the boss frees all the captives with no discernable damage to the tubes, despite the fact that there's no apparent means of egress whatsoever from the tubes.
Didn't killing the boss shut down the facility? One could assume they'd automatically release as a failsafe, in case any of their own workers got caught inside.
Mother 3: Porky puts people and animals in tubes filled with a bizarre green fluid in order to brainwash them into loving him.
EarthBound Beginnings also has people who have been kidnapped by aliens stuffed in tubes, making this a series-wide trope.
Weirdest of all, you can talk to them despite there not being air holes. In the first two games, they'll mostly just seem irritated with the whole circumstance. In the third game, their dialogue is chilling.

Earthsearch. While in a Lady Land society, Darv forces one of the women to show him where the men are kept. She takes him to the suspended animation chambers where all the males are kept until needed for breeding purposes.

In the Gor novels, this is how Earth women are transported to Gor to become Gorean slavegirls. In particular, Assassin of Gor has a scene where women in jars are delivered from a transport ship, and then removed from the jars and tied up for transport by more mundane (for Gor) means to the slave kennels.

Mobile Fighter G Gundam: In the Shinjuku arc, Rain Mikamura is briefly mind-controlled into walking inside an odd lair containing several people in jars like this, who happen to be the crewmates of other Gundam Fighters (Chibodee's Four-Girl Ensemble, Argo's jailer Natasha, Sai Saici's tutors Keiun and Zuisen, and George's Battle Butler Raymond; she probably would've "joined" them, had she not woken up at the last second. Then, she frees them from their collective Convenient Coma before they're forcefully infected with the DG Cells.
Later, an injured Allenby Beardsley is briefly kept in a "jar" before she's Brainwashed into fighting Domon and Rain in the Rantao Island Battle Royale

In Aldnoah.Zero's second season, the comatose Princess Asseylum is seen like this after having been shot by Saazbaum at the end of the first part. She wakes up and leaves the pod towards the end, and is not exactly happy when she learns what Slaine has been doing during her coma....

On Babylon 5, Lyta Alexander revealed that the Vorlons kidnapped humans, genetically engineered telepathic humans, and then grew them in jars.
And there were the Shadow-modified telepaths stored (in "jars") on the station, which are later used to disable a group of Clark-loyal ships, allowing the B5 forces to score a practically bloodless victory against three dozen destroyers. OR... bloodless except for the telepaths.

There's a bizarrely funny scene in Bride of Frankenstein where Dr. Praetorius shows off his work in creating life— little people (and a mermaid— "an experiment with seaweed"— in jars. In an FX shot that's damned impressive for 1935 when one of them climbs out of his jar Praetorius picks him up with tweezers and puts him back where he belongs.

One mission used in both City of Heroes and City of Villains takes place in a lab where Crey Industries manufactures the Paragon Protectors, featuring a room filled with jars of cloned superpowered humans.
The Arachnos Base mission set features Arachnoids (failed super soldiers Rumored to be made from Lord Recluse's DNA) and incomplete Tarantulas (Cybernetic robot spiders exosuits made by permanently, and brutally hooking humans in — you need to see them to get it) in jars of red fluid attached to the walls.

Transformers: Kiss Play: EDC Kiss Players who have failed are apparently stuffed into tubes somewhere below the base. Probably all of them were stripped naked first; Kiss Player Xiao Xiao, after being replaced by the robot-resenting shut-in and generally pathetic Atari Hitotonari, woke in one such tube. When she looked around, the surrounding tubes contained partially eaten remains of other young women. Partially eaten, you ask? Yes, by the phallic-tongued evil robots called Legion. One such was in Xiao Xiao's tube and ready to chow down. That's right — the "good guys" discarded their unwanted to the basement to be eaten alive. No wonder she jumped ship. (She and many fans.)

In Dexter's Laboratory in the episode Momdark, the show's Big Bad, Mandark, abducts Dexter's mother and imprisons her in a suspended animation tank, where she is a state of blissful slumber, being completely unaware of what was occurring. She wakes up after hearing Dad say that Mandark "Missed a spot," and breaks out of her prison to clean up the spot. Strangely, she seems to be unaware of her kidnapping as she never questioned what happened to her.

Tank people have shown up in Star Trek: The Next Generation and in Star Trek: Voyager. In the first, Data found a cryogenic pod containing three frozen American humans from the early 21st century; in the latter, the ship found pods containing people kidnapped from Earth in 1937. One was Amelia Earhart.
In the Star Trek: The Original Series episode "The Empath", Kirk, Spock, and McCoy find the bodies of two missing researchers encased in jars. Ominously, they then discover three empty jars labelled with their names.
"Space Seed" shows Khan and his followers in cryogenic storage.
Borg Maturation Chambers are seen to be this, at least for a certain stage in the humanoid growth cycle. Children (as young as newborns) are placed in People Jars until they've grown into adulthood. While inside, the assimilation process makes them more cybernetic than if they were assimilated as an adult, and feeds them more Borg programming.
