* [[ExploitedTrope Exploited]] in ''SuikodenV'', where letting the enemy succeed in invading your base without any resistance is the correct choice, as it's part of a BatmanGambit by TheStrategist to wipe them out with minimal losses.
** Also played...mostly straight at the game's beginning, where, after one extended playable flashback and a few missions about the kingdom, the heroes return to Sol Falena's palace, only for it to be [[spoiler:attacked by the Godwin family and their ninjas.]] A possible subversion occurs, however, in that not only did the heroes [[spoiler:suspect something was coming and prepare for it (including by dosing themselves with antidotes before the feast because they knew full well there'd be sleeping drugs in the food), but actually looked like they were going to win against the attack. But then the Queen's mad with power moment got out of control, as she went from vaporising the attacking ninjas to reflexively vaporising her ''husband'']]...Things just went more and more wrong from there.

* ''Videogame/SamuraiWarriors'': The first game in particular had castle sieges, parts of the game where you infiltrate the enemy stronghold and kill the enemy. This was not a popular gameplay mechanic and so the castles became part of the main war map itself, and depending on whose story battle you were following you had to either invade or repel an invasion on your home fortress. The most iconic of this is the siege of Honnoji, in which Mitsuhide Akechi turns against OdaNobunaga,

* ''{{Mechwarrior}} 4: Black Knight'' features a nasty one. While you're out on patrol after taking a big bite out of the enemy war machine, [[CardCarryingVillain House Steiner]] betrays your mercenary outfit and launches a surprise attack on the base. In the ensuing chaos, ColonelBadass and MissionControl are both killed, many survivors are taken prisoner, and you pretty much only make it out of there with a few civilian trucks plus whatever gear your HumongousMecha squad had equipped at the time.
** Theoretically any mission in ''Mechwarrior 3'' can become this if you position your Mobile Field Base too close to the bad guys.

* ''AceCombat 5'' the necessary-to-spoiler-tag scene where your new base is [[spoiler:sunk by two sub-launched missiles.]] Before that, the first three levels of the game are the build-up to and execution of an attack on your first base. Later on, the bad guys (who weren't actually bad) also attempt a seaborne invasion.

* ''Series/TourOfDuty'': Firebase Ladybird suffers this in the episode [[http://www.tourofdutyinfo.com/EpGuide/UnderSiege.htm "Under Siege"]]. The [[CluelessBoss new company commander]] brushes off Anderson and Goldmanís concerns about the base defenses, thinking Charlie would be foolish to attack the base. Cut to the VC broadcasting over a loudspeaker that the base is now surrounded, and will attack that night. Oh, not to mention the base is desperately low on ammunition and no ground or air support is available. The VC attack and overrun the base. [[spoiler:Only thanks to some clever rigging of some IEDís in and around the base perimeter is the platoon able to get the upper hand and drive the enemy back. However, [[TrashTheSet the base is completely destroyed in the process.]] ]]
