* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11518909/1/Fate-Long-Night Fate/Long Night]]'', one of Queen Nymeria Martell's Noble Phantasms causes the battlefield to experience the sweltering heat of the Dornish deserts. As a native of Dorne, it doesn't really bother her, while her opponents will quickly become exhausted and thirsty.

** In fact, the power of a Servant varies depending of how much it's known and/or revered in their current location. For example, WordOfGod states that [[LightNovel/FateApocrypha Lancer of "Black"]][[note]]UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler[[/note]] could completely destroy Berserker[[note]][[Myth/ClassicalMythology Heracles/Hercules]][[/note]] and Saber[[note]]{{Gender Flip}}ped Myth/KingArthur[[/note]] from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', two Servants whose identities are known ''world-wide'', because he was summoned in his home country of Romania, close to his native city to boot, and has a Skill that lets him secure a certain amount of land as his own and boost his power as long as he remains within the bounds of that land (which fittingly enough, is at the headquarters of the Yggdmillenia). This dual-layer HomefieldAdvantage is enough he's able to fight toe-to-toe with [[PlayingWithFire Lancer of "Red"]][[note]][[Literature/TheMahabharata Karna]][[/note]] when normally he would be [[CurbStompBattle completely crushed]] by his [[StoryBreakerPower Gilgamesh-leveled opponent]], [[spoiler:which ends up happening when he forced to sacrifice one part of said advantage to fight on the enemy's home turf]].

* In UsefulNotes/RugbyUnion, New Zealand are the dominating national team with ovr a winning record against every team they've played, regardless of where the match is held. However, this trope is played bizarrely straight in Rugby World Cups, where every time they faced a solo host nation (in 1995, 2003 and 2007), they have lost. New Zealand themselves also play this straight, having won both World Cups which they have hosted or co-hosted.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': When Stannis Baratheon's army prepares to march on Winterwell, Ramsay Bolton notes his men will have the advantage because they know the land and are used to moving and fighting in winter, while Stannis' men are not.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': When The North has this as any invading army from the south would have to deal with the North's harsh climate. Northerners are used to fighting in the cold, but southerners are more greatly affected by the snow and cold. For example, when Stannis Baratheon's army prepares to march on Winterwell, Ramsay Bolton notes his men will have the advantage because they know the land and are used to moving and fighting in winter, while Stannis' men are not.

* One of TheThirtySixStratagems indicates that both at least one enemy and one ally will derive their strength from their position. While still useful to attempt to "lure the tiger from the mountain," it's also wise to protect the mountain on which your own tiger rests. If the enemy manages to make it there, your ally will not have to travel far to complete the kill.
