* 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).

* The BigBad of ''VideoGame/PhantasyStar'' has one of these. You can return to it in the 4th game, despite the fact that the planet it was on was ''destroyed'' in the 2nd.

* ''VideoGame/DarkCloud''.
** The Moonflower Palace of ''VideoGame/DarkCloud 2'' used to be one, until it engaged the heroes' own flying fortress, [[HumongousMecha Paznos]], and it was sent hurtling right towards [[DoomedHometown Palm Brinks]]. Paznos' robot mode was barely able to ground it elsewhere.
