* ''SaintsRow2'' features a base called [[spoiler:The Pyramid]] hidden under [[spoiler:a mountain]]. Amazingly, the company that built it was [[spoiler:a clothing company]] in the first game set five years earlier. The Saints themselves have their headquarters in an abandoned hotel that collapsed below street level after an earthquake many years previously. Eventually, it is renovated into a sumptuous, neon-lit, subterranean nightclub called "Purgatory."

* Allegedly, OsamaBinLaden's "command centre" in the caves of Tora Bora mountain was this, with reports of fully equipped hospitals, hydro-electric power stations, a hotel, a tank park, and facilities for 2000 men flying around prior to its capture by [=NATO=] forces during Operation Enduring Freedom. Turns out it was a system of natural caves, with a few small manmade connecting tunnels, housing for 200 men ''at most'', some middlingly sized ammunition depots, and rudimentary medical facilities run by TheDragon (Ayman al-Zahawiri is a qualified surgeon). Whilst possibly more impressive than usual guerilla hideouts, it hardly lived up to its hype.

* The Temple of the Cardinal Witches from ''Series/EmeraldCity''. The visible part looks like a fairly modest chapel, but beneath it there is a truly massive chamber, hundreds of times larger, where the spells of all the deceased witches are kept in jars.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has NERV setting up shop inside the [=GeoFront=], a massive cavern that is actually just the upper 11% of an even larger spherical cave almost completely filled up with earth and rock debris. And going UpToEleven, Terminal Dogma is an Elaborate Underground Base built below another Elaborate Underground Base.

* In ''{{Narbonic}}'', Narbonics Labs moved to an underground lair early in the strip's run. Later subverted when Madblood brags to Helen about ''his'' underground lair; when she and Mell come to visit, they find him [[BasementDweller living in his mother's basement]].

* Switzerland has built and maintained an extensive system of fortifications, tunnels, living facilities, and storage facilities, much of it underground or at least dug deep into mountains, called the National Redoubt, dating back to late 19th century. In the 20th century, they enhanced it such additions as underground/in-mountain hangars for their air force, and built reinforced highways that can function as backup runways when the planes emerge.

* ''Fanfic/DungeonKeeperAmi'' features this often and in diverse flavors. The Dungeons themselves, are a little more feudal, but Ami's underground bases just keep getting more elaborate and more DungeonPunk. Mecha? Check. Underground magical hudrophonics bays? Check. War Room? Check. SigilSpam? Check. Lacks a proper hanger for the [[{{CoolAirship}} airship fleet]], but one was actually an UnderwaterBase, and another an IslandBase...

* It is commonly speculated that Area 51 has a vast underground system where all the top secret research and technology development is made. From the surface there have been signs of hangers and Air Force bases but nothing truly out of the ordinary, this had led people to believe that there must be something underground they are hiding if the surface appears to be normal.

* ''[[MadanSenkiRyukendo Ryukendo]]'' has such a base hidden beneath a police station, accessed by praying to the elevator (really). It also serves as a HauntedHeadquarters.
