* ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra'' has an epic battle scene in Paris, where Cobra attempts to destroy the city with nanites. [[spoiler: They fail, but manage to destroy the Eiffel Tower. Oddly, the Joes don't seem to care. (Well, they may not engage in conversation about the tower destruction, but Breaker seems to be genuinely appalled by the fact.]])

** He also kills the Minotaur on [[TakeItToTheBridge Williamsburg Bridge]] (in fact, all the bridges in Manhatten are the site of battles) in ''The Last Olympian'', and fights Telekhines on Mt St. Helens [[spoiler: which is also where [[EldritchAbomination Typhon]] is [[SealedEvilInACan trapped]], until the battle accidently frees him]] in ''Battle of the Labyrinth''. The sequel series ''TheHeroesOfOlympus'' seems to be following the tradition, with the first time Jason, Piper and Leo face monsters is the Grand Canyon [[spoiler: well, the first time we ''see'' Jason fight a monster, that is]].

* In one ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' mission, Tesla's Torch, the heroes find themselves in New York, so naturally they end up battling the members of an interstellar crime syndicate on both the Empire State Building and the statue of liberty.

* The alien spacecraft in ''Film/IndependenceDay'' sure liked to hang around recognizable landmarks. The first strikes were aimed at the White House and the Empire State Building. At the end, the vanquished alien wrecks lay near the Giza Pyramids and the Syndey Opera House. If you also count the novelization, the [[UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco TransAmerica pyramid]], [[LondonTown Nelson's Statue]], the [[GayParee Notre-Dame Cathedral]] and the [[UsefulNotes/{{Beijing}} Forbidden Palace]] get blown up in the first assault. [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome Why didn't they show that in the movie]]? Oh yeah, budget.
