As the saying goes, opposites attract; heroes and villains have a natural tendency to draw their opposites to themselves. Nowhere is this more clearly demonstrated than in the ConvenientEnemyBase: If the heroes crash-land or shipwreck while on a mission against a powerful enemy, they will almost always wash up no more than a mile or two from that enemy's camouflaged and hidden headquarters. The heroes, after coming to, will then automatically and unknowingly walk directly toward its main entrance, even if they're trying to go anywhere ''but''.

** In the serial ''Genesis of the Daleks'' the Kaleds and the Thals have been fighting an internecine war for control of the planet Skaro for thousands of years and yet their two massive domed cities are seemingly about a half-mile apart. Well, who wants to ''walk'' a long way to a battle?

* On the other end of the spectrum, the protagonists of ''{{Saiyuki}}'', the Genjo Sanzo party, have been attempting to get to the enemy base for the entirety of ''Gensou Maden Saiyuki'' and ''Saiyuki Reload,'' but have not yet reached it (mainly due to a great deal of interference from various gods and demons). Meanwhile, the main antagonists, Kougaiji's group, fly back and forth between the base and wherever the Genjo party happens to be time and time again.
