* 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/DragonBall'', Babidi's base can simulate various environments and his henchmen use it to their advantage (although it fails spectacularly when a HeavyWorlder henchman tries increased gravity against Vegeta, a HeavyWorlder himself used to much higher gravity)

** 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.

* 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.]]

* [[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.

** [[FishPeople Fishmen]] in general become much stronger and faster while underwater.
** The fact that the war between the Whitebeard Pirates and the Marines happened at the latter's HQ allowed the Marines to set up several obstacles in order to gain the upper hand through most of the war.
** Pica of the Donquixote Pirate has the ability to assimilate himself with rock, thus his powers reach max potential while in a naturally rocky island such as Dressrosa, the base of his crew.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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]].
