** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', the plot of the ''Citadel DLC'' is essentially Die Hard on the Citadel, culminating with a frantic shootout on the ''Normandy'' as Shepard rushes to retake the ship. Die Hard on the Normandy: Die Harder?

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', the plot of the ''Citadel DLC'' is essentially Die Hard on the Citadel, culminating with a frantic shootout on the ''Normandy'' as Shepard rushes to retake the ship. It's even chocked with characters, good and bad alike, who are spouting cheesy one-liners like an 80s action movie. Die Hard on the Normandy: Die Harder?

* ''Film/{{Speed}}'' is essentially ''Die Hard'' on a bus, and moves later to a subway train. This is particularly hilarious, given one of the passengers held hostage on Holly's airplane in ''Film/DieHard2'' mentions wishing they had taken the bus instead.

** ''Film/DieHard2'' is ''Die Hard'' in a snowed-in airport... and interestingly, is the last ''Die Hard'' movie to follow this trope as [[Film/DieHardWithAVengeance the third film]] becomes a ''Film/LethalWeapon'' clone, [[Film/LiveFreeOrDieHard the fourth film]] is a techno-thriller and [[Film/AGoodDayToDieHard the fifth film]] is leftover moments from ''Taken'' and ''Mission: Impossible'' movies with only the [=McClane=] character to suggest any relation whatsoever.

* ''Film/KeyLargo'' made in 1948 was essentially "''Die Hard'' at a resort hotel" before there was a formula for this kind of film. A gangster (Edward G. Robinson, because who else?) holds a small group of hotel guests hostage while exchanging money. It isn't until the end that it develops more into the traditional ''Die Hard'' plot towards the end when Creator/HumphreyBogart is taken to drive the getaway boat, which is when he starts sneaking around, bumping off the goons one by one.
