* 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 choose.

* In Jim Davis's ''ComicStrip/USAcres'' [[note]]later adapted as segments of the animated ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' show[[/note]], one-off mentions of things like his TV show add up to make the inside of Sheldon's eggshell downright palatial. No wonder he doesn't want to fully hatch. His feet are also always sticking out of the bottom. That alone makes it probably the most unusual example on this page by a wide margin!
* ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'':
** Snoopy's doghouse is much larger than it seems. Sometimes implied (or even stated) to be an [[ElaborateUndergroundBase elaborate basement]], but whenever the (tiny) visible structure is destroyed, he behaves as if the entire house is gone. And, perversely, he chooses to sleep on ''top'' of the thing, even in the rain or cold!
** A few strips have Snoopy building a birdhouse for Woodstock, which turns out to be another (bird-sized) ClownCarBase.
* A recurring gag in ''ComicStrip/FunkyWinkerbean'' involved Funky doing things inside his locker that should have been impossible, like roasting hot dogs on a fire.

* 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.

* On ''Series/SesameStreet'', Oscar the Grouch has at least one elephant living in his trash can. And a swimming pool. And even Mr. Snuffleupagus himself once payed the grouch a visit - his snuffle was seen first coming out as he was leaving the trash can (and after ''five kids'' came out of it first!).



* A sketch on ''Series/{{Laugh-In}}'' had an absurdly large number of people getting out of a bathtub.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has the TARDIS, which is the trope namer for BiggerOnTheInside, but there have been numerous cases of areas mentioned but never seen. For example, it has a library, and a swimming pool (which once fell into the library when the TARDIS landed on its side), and even ''hallways'', many of which are apparently past incarnations of it that came with each regeneration.
** The swimming pool was also seen in the Fourth Doctor's era, when the Doctor and co are chased through the ship by Sontarans.

* ''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 [[{{Airplane}} another trope altogether]].

** TotalAnnihilation and SpiritualSuccessor ''VideoGame/SupremeCommander'' are notable aversions, you can actually see the units being produced in a properly-scaled building and they have to clear the production platform before the next one can start. It's especially notable with certain giant units: Total Annihilation's Krogath was so big it needed it's own specialized factory to produce, and Supreme Commander's "experimental" tire units are so big they're placed and constructed like buildings.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/{{Goldeneye}}'', where each stage has a set number of enemies. A common tactic on levels with Natalya is to clear out the stage first due to her rather suicidal habit of running right between you and the enemies.

** ''1'' (known originally as ''Air Combat''), ''Zero'', ''X'', ''X2[=/=]Joint Assault'' and ''6'' gives us '''Airborne Fortresses[=/=]Bombers[=/=]Carriers''' that have a number of Escort Fighter squadrons on board that can launch from them that you have to destroy. And despite their ungodly sizes, laws of physics defying sizes there is still no way to justify having as many aircraft, in combination to their bomb bays, missile launchers, AA guns, and super weapons which include ICBMs with essentially a non-nuclear FantasticNuke, and even exotic things such as a "Shockwave Cannon" and lasers. Where is it even possible to fit enough hanger space, munitions, fuel, etc for these escorts?

* ''Fanfic/TheTwoYearEmperor'': the city of Gryfhammr is constructed out of thousands and thousands of nested [[http://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/SRD:Portable_Hole portable holes]]. Due to their extradimensional nature and the branching pattern they formed (each hole contained several additional holes) the city was able to hold hundreds of thousands of people and yet all of them were within easy walking distance of the single main exit.

* ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'': Units in transports or bunkers take up the same space regardless of whether they're at full strength or down to the last man. Thus you can have a single Chimera transport unload upwards of fifty soldiers in one go, while an Imperial Headquarters's guns are just as efficiently manned by the aforementioned 50+ soldiers or just any three people hanging around (including their WorkerUnits). Imperial Guard buildings are all part of a TunnelNetwork, so you can send any squad bunkered in one building to another after a delay, though the number of squads that can be removed at once is limited.
