** Magetta, one of the Universe 6 tournament fighters in Super, has the ability to super heat the battlefield as a side effect of his HulkingOut. Due to Magetta [[MagmaMan drinking and being filled with molten lava]], this naturally has no effect on him, but tires and overheats his opponent. Unlike the above version with Babidi, this actually ''does'' assist him.

* For the ''GreenLantern'' comics, the living planet Mogo is a planet sized Home Field Advantage. At least, [[spoiler:while it was still alive.]]
* Played with by ''{{Superman}}'' and other Kryptonians, who have a Home Field Advantage anywhere near a yellow sun.

*** In The Netherlands, 'De Kuip', the home stadium of Feyenoord Rotterdam has this reputation. Feyenoord's fanbase, nicknamed 'Het Legioen' (The Legion) is considered the most fanatic in the Netherlands. Just as with Liverpool, it is not impossible to snatch a victory for opposing teams thanks to the disappointing results of Feyenoord. However, the atmosphere is that intimidating that even ''home players'' crumble under the pressure of playing there, making it a disadvantage. Moreover, the Dutch Football Association admitted that when young referees are being groomed to become full members of the referee squad the atmosphere in De Kuip is taking into consideration. First, referees are only allowed to lead matches on lower levels in small stadiums. Then they progress to bigger stadiums for higher ranked teams. Leading a match in Rotterdam is considered the final step.

** In South America, teams situated on the Andes, be it national squads or clubs, are usually feared because the altitude usually [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altitude_sickness hinders team performances]]. The situation is inverted on away games, as the Andean teams show their deficiencies at sea level.

** A number of stadiums are noted for their particularly intimidating atmospheres, in which the fans become 'the twelfth man'. Particularly notable examples are:
*** Stamford Bridge, home stadium of Chelsea FC, where they sustained an 86 game unbeaten run from 2005 to 2008, and another 77 game unbeaten run a few years later.
*** Anfield, home stadium of Liverpool FC, has been a little less consistent about this [[EveryYearTheyFizzleOut thanks to the team's own inconsistencies]], but on better runs has been referred to as 'Fortress Anfield' - a nickname that became so ubiquitous, a major fansite was named after it. And at times, it has most definitely been justified: throughout the 1970's, Liverpool only lost 11 home games ''in total.'' This included the beginning of an 85 game unbeaten run from 1978 to 1981 which was only eclipsed by Chelsea 25 years later. It's most famous for its iconic home stand, the Kop, which is usually the noisiest part of the ground and gives its name to Liverpool fans, who are usually referred to as 'Kopites'. The power of the Kop was perhaps most aptly demonstrated in 2009 when Liverpool played Real Madrid (one of the best teams in the world) on a return match in the UsefulNotes/UEFAChampionsLeague, having got a 1-0 win at the Bernabeu, and [[CurbstompBattle promptly trounced them 4-0 at Anfield.]] Also of notes is the fact that local rivals Everton haven't won at Anfield in 17 years (even in years that they finished above Liverpool in the league) and English football's new superpower Manchester City have only won once at Anfield in the Premier League era, back in 2003, and not once since they were taken over by [[ArabOilSheikh Sheikh Mansour]] in 2008, having been thrashed in almost every visit since. Respectably sized at 44,500, it's expanding to 54,000 seats.
*** Old Trafford, home stadium of Manchester United (arch-rivals of the above mentioned Liverpool), dubbed 'the Theatre of Dreams' by club legend Sir Bobby Charlton, was the basis for two decades of dominance of the English game. It helps that with a capacity of over 75,000, it's the largest club stadium in Britain, second largest stadium as a whole in Britain and ninth largest in Europe.
*** In 2015/16, Leicester's King Power stadium developed a reputation as a near impossible place to win, the team losing only once (1-0 to Liverpool in December), as they won their impossible title.
*** Outside of England, there's Barcelona's Camp Nou, seating ''99,000'' spectators, Real Madrid's Bernabeu, which seats 81,000 and Borussia Dortmund's Signal Iduna Park (better known as the Westfalenstadion), which also holds 81,000, including the legendary 'Yellow Wall' home stand. All three have a reputation for being indomitable and absolutely terrifying places for opposing teams to go.

* ''Inverted'' in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' with Lapis Lazuli, who has [[MakingASplash hydrokinesis]]. A projection of the Homeworld's intended terraforming of Earth and Peridot not even knowing what rain ''is'' implies the Gem Homeworld has little to no water. As a result, Lapis is considered weak by the Homeworld (or at least Jasper), but on Earth (which is primarily COVERED in water), her powers make her near god-like.

* Purposedly invoked in ''Manga/WorldTrigger''. In rank wars, the lowest ranked teams can choose battlefields, including the place, time, and weather, to give them advantage. This privilege is used to great effect by the teams, ranging from reducing snipers' sight, limiting enemies movement, isolating powerful enemies, to pitting enemies against each other.

* In international {{cricket}}, the pitches are often prepared in such a way as to suit the home team's playstyle. For example, pitches in India and Sri Lanka are spinning pitches, while those in the West Indies are suited to fast bowling.

* In "Ladyhawke" , the monk character is living in a monastery ruin. When he befriends the Mouse character, he warns him upon crossing the board bridge into his home to walk on the right, but doesn't explain why at the time. Later when the troops of the evil Cardinal arrive they cross the bridge and of course, fall through the weakened or probably sabotaged timbers into the gulley below.

* In ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'', [[spoiler: a group of highly trained mercenaries is hired by the world governments to occupy the mountain around Class E in order to ensure that nobody can get to Koro-sensei, who's been trapped in the area around the classroom. However, Class E is able to [[CurbStompBattle curb stomp]] the mercenaries once they're given time to prepare. One of the factors contributing to this is the fact that the mercenaries are unfamiliar with the area while Class E has spent the past year training on the mountain to the point where they know the layout like the back of their hand, and setting traps for Koro-sensei that they can now re-purpose against the mercenaries.]]
