** 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.

* In Jim Davis' ''ComicStrip/USAcres'' [[note]]later adapted as segments of the animated ''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.

* ''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.

* Played with in the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' cartoon "Rabbit Every Monday". During the cartoon, Yosemite Sam forces Characters/BugsBunny into his old wood-burning oven, and prepares to add wood to the fire. Bugs at one point emerges from the oven door and asks Sam, "You got a bottle opener on ya?" He then emerges from the oven for a moment, and returns to the oven with a bucket of ice and some folding chairs, and then pops out again to empty some ashtrays. Every time he opens the oven door, Dixieland music is heard playing. Finally, he opens the door and asks Sam, "Ain't ya comin' in, Mac? The girls have been askin' for ya." Sam, suddenly excited, slicks his hair back and enters the oven, expecting a party. Bugs gets second thoughts and opens the door to tell Sam it was all just a gag, only to see that there really is a party going on inside the oven. Bugs dives into the oven, and emerges one last time with a party hat and noisemaker, saying, "I don't ask questions, I just have fun!"

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E23InspirationManifestation Inspiration Manifestation]]'', while Rarity's "improvements" on the birdhouse make it double in size, the interior is so big that the robin gets lost and it includes a shoe closet and multiple stairwells.
* In ''WanderOverYonder'', Lord Hater's skull-shaped spaceship is barely bigger than a two-storey house on the outside, yet it contains his entire army, a dungeon, a mall, and lots of other rooms.
