* A one-time example occurs during episode 14 of ''Anime/MaiHime'', where an AmazonBrigade made up of most of the [=HiME=] is shown heading into battle against the season's BigBad. Each of the girls (minus Mikoto, who just goes into a blind, screaming charge) emerges from an ElaborateUndergroundBase, summons her [[BondCreatures CHILD]], and launches into the fray while a ThemeMusicPowerUp triggers in the background. Midori [[GenreSavvy naturally]] lampshades it by yelling "TAKEOFF!" when it's her turn.

* In ''[[Videogame/MechWarrior MechWarrior Living Legends]]'', aerospace fighters are assembled in a hangar and must be taxied out before taking off. Some levels like "Stone Rose" and "Kagoshima" have dramatic launch tunnels, which can be harrowing in the large and lumbering ''Shiva'' and ''Xerxes'' aerospace fighters.
