* The [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Barrayaran Embassy]] in ''CryoBurn'' has one of these. The inhabitants use it for classified communications and miscellaneous plotting. [[StreetUrchin Jin Sato]] is rather afraid to go down into it the first time he's invited to.

* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddnEddy:'' The Kankers hang out in the basement instead of going to classes for the most part when they are at school. They even decorated it to their liking in graffiti and various other nicknacks. Naturally, the other kids try to steer clear from it, especially the Ed's who the Kankers all have massive crushes on.

* ''Literature/TheRoad'' features possibly the most terrifying example in literature. When the boy and the man enter a house and poke around for food they find [[spoiler: a basement butcher shop where the inhabitants of the house imprision people and cut off their limbs for food one by one]]. It puts the smokehouse in the back yard in perspective.

It should be noted that for a lot of people, this trope is TruthInTelevision. Although, nothing impedes a houseowner from {{avert|edTrope}}ing the trope entirely by making the basement a clean, well-lit and light-hued living area, even with ground-level windows for natural illumination- and filled with cool stuff, from TVs to bars to pinball tables. Many bedrooms are done that way, in fact.
