* Can happen in ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' and its sequel thanks to the algorithms of the AI Director. When a random horde spawns to charge the players they'll all spawn in the same area, usually just out of sight of the survivors. This occasionally leads to comical clown car circumstances, where 30 zombies come charging out of a ''single bathroom stall''. The best examples are closets and small rooms that you ''just'' cleared and walked out of literally 5 seconds ago. Where were they all hiding?
** It's entirely possible for a horde to spawn behind and come piling out from behind a small stack of boxes.
* A key element of Franchise/{{Pokemon}}. Poké Balls, roughly the size of a baseball or a hand grenade, [[BiggerOnTheInside can fit a 40' long whale or an 11' long, 2094 lb. dinosaur/earth god without changing size or weight whatsoever.]] They hinge open when capturing or releasing a Pokemon, but they don't change otherwise. It's even crazier in the anime, where they can shrink down to the size of a [[UpToEleven large marble]] until needed.
** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], because the Pokémon get turned into a compressed energy state. This explains why they can be stored in this way for years (James' Carnivine was stored in its ball since he was a child) and has suffer no ill effects.

* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' episode 11. A vicar motions two gravediggers to get out of a grave they're digging. They do so, and then several others get out: 6 more gravediggers, two miners, two men in uniform (possibly escaping prisoners), a police dog and its handler, and a surfboarder. Watch it on Website/YouTube [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0MC_4c-zbY#t=4m25s here]]. This could be called a ClownCarGrave but that name has already been used for [[Film/{{Airplane}} another trope altogether]].

* Death's house in the Literature/{{Discworld}} series, from the outside it looks fairly normal, if a bit morbid, but inside... Death's study is reckoned to be about a mile square, and it apparently isn't the biggest room. This has as much to do with Death just not understanding physics as anything else. In the land his house occupies, the ominous mountains in the distance are actually fairly close to the house; they simply look far away because they're literally blurry, which is all Death really cares about.

* In "Franchise/{{Superman}} & Franchise/{{Batman}} vs Franchise/{{Alien}}s & Franchise/{{Predator}}", Superman brings his fortress of solitude to a volcano to evacuate the Aliens and Predators who have been stranded there for thousands of years, along with the predator ship. On the outside the fortress is roughly 4 meters in diameter and spherical, but the inside is an entire dead universe he is free to decorate as he chooses.

* The creature lairs in ''StarWarsGalaxies'' were subject to this, being far too small to house the typical dozen or so creatures that would emerge from one upon being attacked, let alone fit even one of them inside. It got especially ridiculous in the case of the biggest creatures like krayt dragons, where the lair was about the size of one of their feet.

* Wizarding tents in ''Literature/HarryPotter'' work this way: Sure, the LOOK like a regular two-person tent on the outside. But on the INSIDE, its roughly a fourth of a circus tent, complete with kitchen and numerous bunk beds. And those are the ordinary-looking ones.

* ''VideoGame/VectorThrust'' has the EOS-14 fortress/bunker thing which starts vomiting MiG-29s out of its single aircraft lift without pause after you damage it enough.
