* 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.

* [[TheBeautifulGame Association football]] team Hereford United have a pitch which is actually on a slope. The slope is slight and almost un-noticeable - but it is still a slope. Visiting teams unaware of this are frequently disorientated by the behaviour of the ball as they kick it--it will travel faster and further downhill and slower and shorter uphill. This has allowed Hereford to collect the scalps of many fine teams, including Manchester United and Liverpool.

* ''Series/{{The 100}}'' initially gives the Grounders the home field advantage, since they've been hunting and fighting in the woods their entire lives, while the 100 have never been outside of the Ark space station before. This gets flipped around during the BigBadassBattleSequence at the end of the first season, as the 100 have had time to build up their camp's defenses. When the Grounders attack it, they're met with barricades, landmines, and [[spoiler:flaming exhaust from the dropship]].

Holy Child is no longer a trope.
*** Jaela Daran, [[HolyChild The Speaker of the Flame]], gains a staggering 15 levels while inside Flamekeep (she's normally level 3). The same thing applies to her EvilCounterpart.

** It's also possible to "customize" a pitch in order to favour a club's general playstyle. Spain's Barcelona FC, for example, tends to water the grass of the Camp Nou before matches in order to make the ball travel faster on the ground, allowing for faster passing.

* Alcyoneus (a character from Greek mythology who also appears in [[Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus The Son of Neptune]]) has the ultimate home field advantage - he's immortal while in his homeland. His enemy being Herakles with advice from Athena, he gets shot with a poisonous arrow that makes him ''wish'' he could die and then he's dragged out of the border while he's writhing in pain.
