* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'': Wismerhill buys a traveling castle from the dwarf masters to use in his next campaigns. The dwarfs even shaved off half the price since the lord who originally commissioned it had spontaneously died.

** Featured in the ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' multiplayer map "Sandtrap" are two vehicles officially called "''Behemoth''-class Troop Tansport", colloquially known as "Elephants". While small examples of the Base On Wheels trope, they are the largest pilotable vehicles in the game. They also on default map settings come equipped with two detachable Gatling gun turrets and one fixed turret. They can also hold up to three ATV or two "Warthog" jeeps. In the universe of the game, they were designed for troop transport and vehicle recovery and feature large cranes, and an upper and lower deck. Though, in a few fan-made multiplayer modes, they are used as mobile flag-bases in Capture the Flag games. Amusingly, you can actually flip one over, though it is very hard to do. Even more amusingly, you can then go to flip it back over, leading to a prompt; "Press RB to... Wait, what? How did you do that?"

** ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'' takes it up to eleven with the new Mammoth, which dwarfs the Elephant (while also moving considerably faster than its slow-as-molasses little predecessor), can comfortably hold two or three Warthogs along with plenty of soldiers & guns, has top-mounted rocket turrets, and has a mini-MAC as its primary armament, capable of one-shotting Phantoms and (according to its specs) hitting targets in orbit. Basically, the Mammoth is the UNSC's answer to the Covenant's [[HumongousMecha Scarab]].

** In RTS-spinoff ''VideoGame/HaloWars'', the Elephant is a pretty literal base on wheels, since you can use it to spew out a never-ending stream of infantry.

* Since at least the Apollo era, NASA has relied on one of two diesel-electric [[Crawler-Transporters, several stories in height, to transport the vehicle assembly from the Assembly building to the launch pad; these are the largest self-propelled vehicles in the world, weighing 2,400 tons. They require their own path that is 7 feet thick (largely due to having a tiny tread area relative to their size) and move at a top speed of two miles per hour, though they can only manage one with a shuttle on top. It takes a team of almost 30 engineers, technicians and drivers to operate one of those behemoths.

* The British faction in ''CompanyOfHeroes'' has mobile HQs (Bedfords with extra seats for the commanders). They can be moved anywhere, sometimes even at an incredible speed, but in return, the British cannot promote civilian buildings to HQs unlike every other faction.

* ''TheThrawnTrilogy'' - A non-villainous example [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Nomad_City is]] Nomad City from the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse. It's a very large old ship carried by a large number of captured [[SpiderTank AT-ATs]], so it's sort of a base on legs. That's because it's a MercurialBase-- a mining station on a slow-turning planet very close to its hot sun, which would melt if left on the day side - as eventually happens once it is immobilized by an attack.

** [[spoiler: The city is actually Coruscant, the capital of the New Republic, and a City Planet, and the Lusankya was actually buried ''upside down''! Given that Coruscant is the most densely-populated place in the entire galaxy, how it was buried and kept a secret is a mystery. Two possibilities were suggested in-universe: that Emperor Palpatine used his mastery of TheDarkSide to wipe everybody's memory of it, or [[FridgeHorror he just had all of the billion-plus witnesses killed]].]]
