* how much actual digging was required is debateable, in that what Ankh-Morpork is built on is largely Ankh-morpork. The current city is just the top level of several layers of older buildings and construction, which over the generations have sunk, buried, or just been built over so many times that it it is a whole warren of passages and compartments, with old streets ending up as sewer tunnels, and old shops now serving as the (often unknown) basements, or subbasements to current buildings.

* ''[[Film/{{Screamers}} Screamers: The Hunting]]''. The eponymous {{Killer Robot}}s are made in automated factories beneath the surface. The characters have an OhCrap reaction when they entered a shut-down factory and see just how ''big'' it is. Of course, someone [[IdiotBall inevitably does something stupid]] to cause it to power up again...

** Season 5 features the Lighthouse, a top secret bunker created by S.H.I.E.L.D. in the 70's in case of nuclear war. It's so big and so well designed that in a BadFuture where [[EarthShatteringKaboom the Earth has shattered]], it functions as a perfectly habitable and self-sustaining space station.

* In the ''Literature/RiversOfLondon'' novel ''The Hanging Tree'', Peter notes that, since rich people don't understand why living in a city with millions of other people means you can't have a huge country house, the posh terraces in Kensington tend to have vast basements and cellars containing swimming pools and bowling alleys, which means that a) most rich people are a [[VolcanoLair volcano]] away from being supervillains and b) watching the uniforms trying to secure the building gives the impression of a ClownCarBase. (This is TruethInTelevision, to the extent that some streets in Kensington actually have a serious subsidence problem.)

* The [[Film/{{Megaforce}} headquarters, a bunker deep in the Nevada desert built to withstand a direct hit from a 25-megaton nuke, with all the necessary elements for training and maintaining and leading the Megaforce, and with a CoolGarage full of extensive military hardware (and Dallas then mentions that said garage is ''just'' the one for the ground vehicles, as well as joking about needing $40,000 worth of mops and brooms to keep the place clean).
