* The facade of ''Ride/ItsASmallWorld'' at the Ride/DisneyThemeParks is themed around a clock tower that has a giant smiley face on it. The clock tower itself will even give out the current time every fifteen minutes.

* ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce'' had their 2001-era home and headquarters in an abandoned clocktower that the 2001-era Red Ranger just so happened to own. They must have found it thematically appropriate, given that they were time travelers.

As per usual for bases in the franchise, the finale had [[{{Mooks}} Cyclotrons]] pulling an AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs and a TrashTheSet; the tower ends up being destroyed during the battle.

* There is one in the [[ElaborateUniversityHigh high school]] in ''Anime/{{K}}'', in the first season. In a flashback to the night of the murder, someone does shout a love confession from the top of it. In the end, when the Red Clan arrives at the island, the Red King Mikoto promptly uses his powers to cut it in half... after which his RightHandHottie, Izumo Kusanagi, tells the students to [[SarcasmMode stay calm]].



* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', during the [[ShiftingSandLand arabasta]] [[StoryArc arc]] the BigBad [[AnimalThemeNaming Crocodile]] places a huge cannon that would have been used to kill practically everyone in the city in the clock tower overlooking the square.

* Hibikino High's place of legend in the 2nd game of the ''TokimekiMemorial'' series is a clock tower named "the Legendary Bell". Its bells are normally broken and can't ring, [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve but it's sort of magical]] and will ring to give its blessings and grant eternal happiness to couples making their LoveConfession near it on Graduation Day.

* In DCComics, Barbara Gordon (Batgirl, then Oracle) had her base in the Gotham clocktower for a while. The clock face was visible behind her computer, so presumably it wasn't a ''working'' clocktower.

* ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'' has two examples. One on the central island contains the mechanism that unlocks the giant gears on the other end, and another, half-broken one on the Selenitic Age is used as one of the sound sources for a radio dish puzzle.

* Though not a Clock Tower, per se, the BIOCOM tower in ''BrokenSaints'' pretty much acts as one--it's a Cathedral like complex filled with stained glass and machinery (including a crucifix-like device which controls a KillSat,) and it requires a long climb in order to get to. It's also the setting for the final confrontation and battle with the BigBad.

* If inside, there will be plenty of gears and other mechanisms, or at least a rope to ring the bell. Expect a stadium sized chamber full of spur gears the size of Volkswagens, on and about which the hero and villain [[CathedralClimax will climb and clamber as they fight]]. When the gears are invariably jammed with an [[ThrowTheSword errant sword]] or wrench, expect the whole thing to tear itself apart as the designers conveniently forgot to include any sort of clutch, disconnect, or even an emergency "off" switch. Alternately, it might [[IncrediblyLamePun stop the clock]] on somebody about to be crushed, but only until the wrench breaks. (The mechanism inside ''real'' clock towers is often much smaller than in fiction. The workings of the Custom House Tower clock in Boston, for example, are about the size of a file cabinet; those of Big Ben, though weighing about five tonnes, cover the same sort of area as a large table.)
