* Very popular residences for women in DC Comics series. Barbara Gordon/Oracle in ''Series/BirdsOfPrey'', Chloe Sullivan in ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', Sara Lance/Black Canary in ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' and Barbara Keane in ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' all live in them. (All of these are a reference to Oracle's clocktower base in the comics; [=BoP=] Oracle obviously; Chloe was the League's Oracle counterpart; Canary because she was Oracle's partner in [=BoP=]; and Barbara Keane because in the comics she's Barbara Gordon's mother.)

* Though not a Clock Tower, per se, the BIOCOM tower in ''WebAnimation/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.
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Beacon Academy sits on a hill above Vale, dominating the landscape. Dominating Beacon itself is the clock tower, the tallest structure in the academy which can often be seen looming in the background of even the city shots. The tower's defining external characteristics are the gigantic clock three quarters of the way up the tower and the very top of the tower which contains emerald light, akin to a lighthouse. Inside the clock tower directly behind the clock face is a huge circular room filled with all manner and sizes of working cogs. This is Professor Ozpin's office, where even his desk and chair are made of working cogs.

* There are two clock towers in ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' - one in the London section of [[Disney/PeterPan Neverland]], and one in Twilight Town in the sequels. The first is the location of that world's [[CosmicKeystone Keyhole]] and a BonusBoss who uses the tower to cast a time spell on your party members (and, eventually, you). Twilight Town's clock is a hangout of Roxas's - [[spoiler: in both his real life with the Organization and his life in the digital Twilight Town]].
** [[spoiler:It is also the site of the final confrontation between Roxas and Xion.]]

* 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 [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks 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.)

* Garry Kilworth's ''WelkinWeasels: Gaslight Geezers'' features Maudlin and Scruff, the hero's sidekicks, crashing a hot air balloon into Ringing Roger, the Big Ben-analogue clocktower, below which just happens to be a statue of King Redfur holding a very sharp upward-pointing lance. They catch the hands of the clock. It's quarter-past-nine, Scruff catches the hour hand and Maudlin catches the minute hand:
