* In the ''Literature/Alcatraz'' series, librarians are all either evil cultists or vengeful undead, therefore every time the heroes infiltrate a library, it turns into dungeon crawling with monsters, traps and other dangers.

* A few years ago, ''PrinceValiant'' ran a story where the local dwarves, the [[Myth/CelticMythology Tuatha,]] kidnap Aleta into their subterranean realm. Val and a group of companions have to pursue them into the dark tunnels, fighting weird monsters and finally discovering the [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings vast underground city of the dwarves.]] The whole thing was very clearly meant as an affectionate homage to TabletopGames and this trope.

* Although the objective is usually to find some''one'' rather than some''thing'', a surprising amount of ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' consists of reskinned dungeon crawls - although the dungeons are usually portrayed as space station environments, incomplete skyscrapers, Krogan hospitals, abandoned experimental compounds, spaceports and spaceships both derelict and functional (on one particularly memorable occasion said ship is a [[spoiler:derelict Reaper]]). True to form, you find treasure (new guns, research projects and money) and regularly fight bosses (mercenary leaders, top-tier Geth, gun-encrusted krogan warlords and Collector Praetorians, to name the major recurring adversaries). There are a couple of exceptions - Archangel's recruitment mission involves defending a location rather than invading it, and most of Grunt's consists of fighting off various kinds of unpleasant Tuchanka wildlife in a semi-open arena - but the majority of missions boil down to "go to place with dungeon-like map, kill everything in it, steal everything useful, complete the primary objective - usually with a big fight of some description - and leave".

* In the VideoGame/{{Borderlands}} series, alien Vaults replace your standard dungeon. Exploring them makes up a very small part of the game; most if it is actually finding them. Obeying tradition, opening up a Vault always leads to one final boss battle-class monster fight.

* Seems to be given a knowing nod in the ''{{Dragaera}}'' story "The Desecrator", in which desecrator is the Dragaeran term for archeologist, but the job has the typical fantasy cast of raiding ancient structures for treasure and having to fend off magical barriers.
