** Both ''VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar'' and ''VideoGame/PaperMarioColorSplash'' repeat this with [[spoiler: Bowser's Sky Castle]] and [[spoiler:Black Bowser's Castle]] respectively. The former is not floating initially but instead [[spoiler:hidden in the Gate Cliff]] and is not destroyed on-screen while the latter [[spoiler: is turned into a card after Huey squeezes all of the black paint out of it. And yes, if you reload the game after the credits, [[ColonyDrop you can use it in battle]].]]



** A completely different [[spoiler:Neo Bowser Castle]] in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam'' appears as this. Unlike Dream Team's example, [[spoiler:you actually storm it while it's flying]].

Added DiffLines:

* The Kirby series does it on occasion (not too surprising considering the series is fond of [[StormingTheCastle a close trope]].
** ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand2'' has Dark Castle, the last of the Rainbow Islands and the source of the clouds that are covering them. The area boasts 7 stages (with almost half being [[RemixedLevel harder versions of the first 3]], a battle with a [[DemonicPossession sleeping King Dedede]] and, if you got all the Rainbow Drops, a showdown with [[spoiler: [[TrueFinalBoss Dark Matter]]]].
** ''VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe'' has Royal Road, a fancy castle found at the top of the Dreamstalk. It is the destination of Dedede's kidnapper Taranza and the home of his boss [[spoiler: [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Sectonia]]]].

* Though technically a flying mansion, Comstock House in VideoGame/BioshockInfinite certainly counts. Its probably the biggest most intimidating structure in Columbia, never mind the lightning storm and the gigantic statues of the founding fathers it rests upon. In addition to being the house of Big Bad [[spoiler: It becomes an Insane Asylum run by the inmates, albeit in the future.]]

* Not exactly owned by the villain, but the Advance Base Rakion at the Mesos Floor in ''AceOnline''[=/=]''Air Rivals'' can look rather intimidating to inexperienced pilots. It doesn't help that it's the largest map in the entire game and that players from ANI and BCU must fight for control of the Advance Base to put it into use.

* Lawrence III's ''Hikōkyū'' (translation: Flying Palace) from ''{{Anime/Pokemon2000}}''.

* Lawrence III's ''Hikōkyū'' (translation: Flying Palace) from ''{{Anime/Pokemon2000}}''.''[[{{Anime/Pokemon2000}} Pokémon 2000]]'', a mechanical flying fortress the size of a city. Unfortunately for Lawrence, its only weaponry was on the bottom; when Moltres and Zapdos began quarreling around the central area of the ship, Lawrence was powerless to stop them, sending the palace crashing down.

* In Marvel continuity, Knowhere is a fortress made from ''a Celestial's head'', discovered by the ''ComicBook/GuardiansOftheGalaxy'' and located near The Rip, the extreme outer edge of all existence. (Who killed it? Pretty much everyone hopes they never find out.) It serves as base for those who study the Rip and the space-time abnormalities of the location. (It also appeared in [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy the movie]] and [[WesternAnimation/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy the animated series]].)

* ''WesternAnimation/LavenderCastle'', as the protagonists' goal, [[http://sixtiescity.net/Anderson/LAVCAS2.jpg is not very ominous]]. In fact, it's the place they believe they will find their BigGood, who or whatever that may be. However it is a floating castle in space, shown several times as the characters fly right past without noticing. [[BigBad Dr. Agon's]] twisted [[http://www.gerry-anderson-serien.de/Lavender_Castle/Bilder/Dark-Station.jpg cathedral ship]], however, does look the part.

** Several in ''TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}'', most notably the Doomguard citadels which float on the borders between the Negative Energy Plane and the Quasielemental Planes; and Orcus's crumbling fortress of Tcian Sumere also in the Negative. These all likely inspired the Fortress of Regrets in ''PlanescapeTorment'' (below).
