* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' fought three villains at once at the Eiffel Tower; in a probable reference to the trope, she also fought Dr. Drakken at [[BlessedAreTheCheeseMakers "The World's Biggest Wheel of Cheese".]]

* Recently done in SecretAvengers during the ComicBook/FearItself arc. A mutant Senator with vaguely defined powers to "bring history to life", animates The Lincoln Memorial and exhibits from The Smithsonian to battle the invading enemies.
* During the ''Captain Britain and MI13'' portion of the SecretInvasion event, the Skrull invasion of Britain and the remnants of the human military have their climactic battle on Westminster Bridge. It's invoked to a degree, since a good portion of the battle is fought with magic and the location has a great deal of symbolic value for the British people linked to this.
