** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' has the oddly named underground ruins of "Catapult" beneath Crescent Island where the crew finds the airship. Though it's inhabitants are long-since gone and the lower levels have become home to monsters, the gang along with Cid and Mid turn the upper levels into a headquarters and maintenance bay for their ships.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' has its various power plants. It's not as severe as some examples, since the other danger in them is the hordes of Electric and Steel monsters and the occasional lightning bird.



** The Feugo Ironworks in ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondPearlAndPlatinum'' is an iron factory. ''VideoGame/PokemonXandY'' have the Pokéball Factory and ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' has the Cipher Lab. ''VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness'' adds the Cipher Key Lair.

to:

** There's the Kanto Power Plant in ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' and ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''.
** ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' feature New Mauville, whose engine problems can be a minor mid/late-game plot element (Wattson asking the player character to check it out is what gets them in there).

* In the VideoGame/DwarfFortress Let's Play Battlefailed, the reactor system is called the "Eternity Engine." It literally is, being a perpetual motion machine.

* The Sinister Plant in ''VideoGame/{{Miitopia}}'' is a minor dungeon filled ''to the brim'' with withered wires that continuously shed sparks and old console-like machines. Oddly enough, the Miis encounter a ''dragon'' there. The Sterile Plant also counts, and it is rife with robotic enemies.

** Several in the ''VideoGame/SonicRiders'' series: Egg Factory and Ice Factory (which also have, respectively, a LethalLavaLand and SlippySlideyIceWorld aesthetic, if not their gameplay) in the first game, [=MeteorTech=] Premises and [=MeteorTech=] Sparkworks in ''Zero Gravity'', and the two tracks at Final Factory in ''Free Riders''. They also mostly {{avert|edTrope}} NoOSHACompliance, in that the more dangerous machinery is behind guardrails.

* Sekto's Dam in ''VideoGame/OddworldStrangersWrath'' is basically what you would get if you mixed a dam, bottling plant, and [[NoOshaCompliance DEATH]]. It's one of the few areas with BottomlessPits in the game. Sekto keeps two large reactor type objects that he apparently uses as weapons right next to his desk, which like most equipment in an Eternal Engine, ''[[ExplosiveInstrumentation will explode]] if you shoot it enough''. Apparently he either really wants to be a LoadBearingBoss, or he doesn't care about his own safety. There's also the entirety of Rupture Farms, which half of the first game takes place in.

** The ''VideoGame/{{Oddworld}}'' series in general loves this trope. You have
Rupture Farms, Farms 1029 (a meat packing factory) from ''Abe's Oddysee'', Necrum Mining Company (a series of mining tunnels), Fee Co. Depot. (a mass transit hub), Slig Barracks (a military base and training grounds, the headquarters itself count as this trope), Bonewerkz (a bone processing factory), and Soulstorm Brewery (a drink bottling facility and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick torture facilty]]) from ''Abe's Exoddus", all of which half are impractically huge for their stated functions.
** Munch's Oddysee tones down the sheer scale
of the first game takes place in.facilities, but Vykkers' Labs (a combination R&D laboratory, security installation, and factory) housed in a FlyingSaucer /CoolAirship hybrid certainly counts as this trope.

** Planet Wisp from ''VideoGame/SonicColors'' -- the Eternal Engine is still under construction, but much of the [[GreenHillZone natural beauty]] has [[GreenAesop already been spoiled]]. There's also Asteroid Coaster, mixed with BigBoosHaunt and ThemePark of course, but it's where Eggman converts the Wisps to the Nega-Wisps. [[LevelAte Sweet Mountain]] has very slight elements of this.
