* [[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross]]/''{{Anime/Robotech}}'' have an underground base in Alaska (possibly in the site of the real life Elmendorf AFB), armed with the ''{{BFG}}'' of the [[WaveMotionGun Wave Motion Guns]]. Incidentally, Macross' secondary sources list four other identical bases being build when the Zentradi launch the final attack, one of them in the same area of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Jaburo]].

Added DiffLines:

* The Series/AgentsOfSHIELD have a number of underground bases and facilities, the main example being the Playground, which acts as their main headquarters from the end of the first season onwards.
** In Season 3, [[NebulousEvilOrganization HYDRA's]] main base is a bunker revealed to be built underneath an abandoned oil refinery. Coulson [[LampshadeHanging says that]] they don't even appear to be trying to avoid villain cliches at this point.

* The majority of ''Film/DayOfTheDead'' takes place in a vast bunker as the scientists attempt to find a cure for zombies. Less elaborate that most other examples but it gets bonus points for being a real place; it was a mine that was converted for "long-term storage facility for important documents" which is the stuff Ben is looking through in the actual film.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Führerbunker'', where Hitler spent the last weeks of the war, was originally built to be a termporary air raid shelter. However, as the Allies pressed further into German territory, it was expanded into an improvised permanent shelter. By all accounts, it protected its inhabitants from the shelling outside.

** UNATCO Headquarters is itself underground, with [[spoiler:an MJ12 base]] beneath it. Yes, the game has an example of [[UpToEleven an underground base beneath another underground base.]]
** UNATCO Headquarters makes a return appearance in ''VideoGame/DeusExInvisibleWar''.
** ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'' features several underground bases - a FEMA facility, the Harvesters' hideout, and [[spoiler:Panchaea]] to name a few.



* The Alpha Protocol base in, well, ''AlphaProtocol'' is a large underground complex apparently located somewhere in the American northwest. Reaching it is pretty difficult; agents are sedated into unconsciousness and transported to the location, via aircraft and boat in order to keep the base's location secret. [[spoiler: At least until the endgame, where Mike arranges for his allies to track him while he's being sedated and ruin everyone's whole week with a surprise assault.]]

* Supervillain Doctor Impossible of ''SoonIWillBeInvincible'' has a base descending deep into the Earth: when he returns to it after his last defeat, the deeper levels are still intact. Also, his first base was dug down from the basement of an ordinary suburban house.

* In ''SonicTheComic'' the Freedom Fighters used Kintobor's labtory containing living space, storage areas, monitoring equipment (which left plenty of screens on which to play videogames!), a hangar for the Freedom Fighters' biplane, and the mainframe of the Kintobor Computer itself. The Freedom Fighters also expanded the facility in light of their new status as guerillas, excavating further chambers for additional capacity. The most prominent of these was a prison block (less charitably, dungeon), and later Tekno's Workshop the home and workplace of Tekno the Canary.
