* ''[[VideoGame/Contra Contra Force]]'' actually has its final level be the C-Force/Blue Group's headquarters, which comes under attack by a squad of D.N.M.E. terrorists with [[BigBad its leader]] at the helm. Needless to say, you get to succeed in fending them off.

* You could probably make a drinking game out of how many times this happens to the average character in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic''. (The nature of the phasing system is such that the [[EnforcedTrope easiest places for designers to put]] a climactic fight is the enemy's base, or the ally's base.) The MostTriumphantExample is probably the Empire's [[ManchurianAgent Children of the Emperor]], who manage to take over a staggering number of Republic bunkers, labs, strongholds, and so forth, [[TheMole usually by invitation]]. Naturally, the players [[ItsUpToYou are the only ones]] competent enough to get them back.

* In ''FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi'', Alphel briefly takes over Mercury's dungeon in a joint strike with Keepers Arachne and Nero, while Nero creates a distraction forceing all of Mercury's minions to fight on a battle field of his choice. The battle is vicious and protracted; but in the end all three are defeated for an epic CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

** VideoGame/XCOM2 has an even more dramatic version of this with Avenger defense missions. After a UFO uses an EMP weapon and a 'spike' to ground the Avenger, your soldiers have to mount a desperate defense to prevent hostiles from boarding the Avenger, while destroying the spike. Then you have to manually evacuate everyone who participated. This is even more dramatic because, due to the nature of the mission, you can use wounded soldiers. Additionally, the arbitrary headcount goes straight out the window; every few turns, Central will deploy another soldier from within the Avenger to help ensure that the mission succeeds. This all cumulates in some of the [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome most exhilarating battles]] of a playthrough, for very good reason.

But then [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Edgar, Locke, and Terra escape on chocobos while the castle itself sinks into the sand]], ejecting the invaders and thoroughly humiliating Kefka.

* Sometimes All Your Base can be an advantage: at one point during the Seven Years War, the Austrian army took advantage of the Prussian army's absence fighting the French to capture the province of Silesia. When the Prussians eventually responded it was to discover they were outnumbered 2:1 on a battlefield of the Austrians' choosing. Unfortunately, the site they had chosen near Leuthen happened to be the Prussian Army's peacetime training ground, and the resulting familiarity with the terrain made the [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Prussian victory]] almost hilariously [[CurbStompBattle one-sided]].

* In retaliation for the destruction of York (now Toronto) in the War of 1812, the British Regulars invaded and burned Washington. This is seen as both a CrowningMomentOfAwesome and CrowningMomentOfFunny in Canada because, well, [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass it's Canadians invading another country]], even though the Canadian militia ''wasn't even there''.

* The Italian Navy's CrowningMomentOfAwesome during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII was one of these: with three second-generation manned torpedoes, the Italians penetrated Alexandria harbour and mined two battleships (including the flagship ''with admiral on board'') and a tanker (there was no carrier, so they mined another target), disabling the battleships and damaging the tanker and a destroyer (collateral damage).
