* In [[AllThereInTheManual one of the historical files]] for ''Literature/Brennus'', a man named Emyr Blackhill, a scifi writer and [[RealityWarping reality warper]] of immense power, disappeared when he was twenty-two. Five years later, earth-based telescopes witnessed strange activity on the surface of Mars. It was Emyr, having used his power to not only create Martian life, but also a palace bigger than the state of California. Today, this is all that remains of the former empire after Blackhill's temporary conquest of the Earth, along his corpse transfixed to his throne.

* Train stations with multiple platforms can get like this and it is not uncommon to end up having to go over or under multiple platforms to get where you need to be. Special mention goes to Edinburgh Waverly. It has multiple levels, eighteen platforms and a shopping area interspersed throughout. It does not help that the platform numbers are not laid out very logically.

* The old [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greyfriars_bus_station Greyfriars Bus station in Northhampton]], UK. It was voted the ugliest building in Britain for several years running, cost the council millions of pounds, and was nigh impossible to navigate. It's carpark closed down in 2007 because chemicals were leaking through it, making the travel centre even ''less'' travel friendly. A "Top 10 ugliest buildings" programme of Channel 4 did a test and it took them 15 minutes to navigate between connecting ''buses''.
When push came to shove, the Northhampton city council opted to blow it up and build a ''new one'' instead because it easier that way.

* In ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross''[=/=]''Anime/{{Robotech}}'', Rick and Minmay actually get lost inside the SDF-1 (a GiantRobot big enough to fit a small city inside) for an episode or so. Later a party of humans find themselves hiding in an immense forgotten corridor on a Zentraedi ship that's even larger than the SDF-1. In the second season of Robotech, the alien invaders' colony ships are similarly vast.

* The Underthing in ''Literature/TheSlowRegardOfSilentThings'' and TheKingKillerChronicles seems to be the result of centuries of building and expansion. Only Auri seems to know her way around down there.

* ''VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode'': Soren resides in a large temple with dozens of underground chambers connected by a series of staircases. No one is happy about this.
--> '''Axel:''' I hope that someday I'll love something as much as Soren seems to love stairs.
