* In ''Videogame/{{Hitman 2016}}'', [[EvilutionaryBiologist Silvio Caruso]] has an entire laboratory filled with scientists and guards in a cave underneath his estate. It's justified as being built by the company he's working for since he's an agoraphobe who hates traveling.

** Every single Forerunner Franchise/{{Halo}} installation in the Halo universe is built underground. Presumably, this is so that experiments could be performed on the surface, while the Forerunners would stay underground to monitor the results.


Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/HaloReach'': Sword Base has a massive research facility hidden in the ice shelf deep below the base.
** The world of Reach also has CASTLE Base, an ONI facility hidden two kilometers directly underneath Menachite Mountain.

* British puppet character Roland Rat was originally supposed to live in the sewers beneath King's Cross railway station. In ''Roland Rat: The Series'' this suddenly became "the Ratcave"; an Elaborate Underground Base containing living quarters, a talk show studio and a reception area, and accessed from a hidden lift in a workman's shelter outside the station.

* The Matshuhiro Underground Imperial Headquarters near Nagano was intended to be this for ImperialJapan as the Allies turned the tide of UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo - since Tokyo was on the coast, it would have been too risky to leave the central apparatus of the Japanese government there in the event of a US invasion. Construction began in November 1944 and it was about 75% complete when Japan surrendered the following August.
** Tama Hills, an area in the foothills around Tokyo, was once home to a munitions factory and depot. While it wasn't one continuous underground facility, most of the buildings and storage areas were carved into the hills or buried in an attempt to protect it from aerial observation and attack, particularly a concern late in WorldWarII. As it happens, it succeeded, and the Americans did not discover it until several months after Japan's surrender. It has since been decommissioned and converted into a golf course and campground for US military members and their families, with many of the original structures, tunnels, etc. still around, [[RuinsOfTheModernAge if badly overgrown with weeds and bugs.]]
*** Many of Japanese island bases during WorldWarII featured an extensive system of underground fortifications based on both natural caves and man made tunnels--Iwo Jima, Pelilieu, Saipan, etc.
