* The finale of the manga version of ''ChronoCrusade'' has the good guy group storming [[FloatingIsland Eden]], [[BigBad Aion's]] base of operations...only to get caught up in ''his'' plans to storm Pandaemonium, the demon world. The end result is two battered, small groups rushing through the defenses of several hundred [[spoiler:insane and feral]] demons to get to the throne room and fight ''each other'' over it.

* ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'': Technically all of them. It's kind of the point of the series. But this trope really only applies to when Dracula's castle is the last level, like in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaIISimonsQuest'' and ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaOrderOfEcclesia''.

That means it's time to [[LockAndLoadMontage gear up]] and assault the bad guy's [[SupervillainLair home base]]. Sure, maybe it's guarded by countless [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy extremely well-trained]] warriors, a [[QuirkyMinibossSquad squad of bounty hunters]] looking for your head, and even TheDragon, but what choice do you have? Maybe the villain's stole your [[ExcusePlot secret sauce recipe]], and he's not afraid to use it. Maybe he's gonna force [[DistressedDamsel your girlfriend]] to [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe marry him]]. Maybe he just can't be trusted not to come back worse than before. In any case, the only way to stop him is to take him down.

* Happens three times in the final arc of [[TwentiethCenturyBoys 20th Century Boys]]: firstly, when [[spoiler:Kenji]] and co storm the 'castle' of [[spoiler:Moroboshi's killer]], and twice later on when the resistance storm Friend's tower. The second time is much easier for them seeing as how [[spoiler:the guards have all lost their morale]].

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has the "The Nuclear Option" quests, where [[spoiler:you invade the Institute with troops from either the Brotherhood of Steel, the Railroad, the Minutemen, or all three, blast your way through armies of synths, and eventually blow the whole place up by sabotaging their nuclear reactor.]] Conversely, the climactic Institute quest, "Airship Down", [[spoiler: has you storm the Brotherhood of Steel's base with the aid of Synth troops, and hack Liberty Prime to blow up the Prydwen.]] Much earlier, there's "Taking Independence", where you help the Minutemen take back their headquarters, which is actually named The Castle.

Added DiffLines:

** The entire series plays with this trope, as befitting a strategy game. ''Wings of Liberty'' ended with an assault on Charr[[note]][[UpToEleven A whole damn planet]][[/note]], and devoted an entire story arc to breaching, forming a beachhead, and ultimately [[spoiler: curing Kerrigan.]] ''Legacy of the Void'' ended with all three races [[spoiler: breaching another universe to kill the real BigBad of the entire saga.]]

* ''WizardsFirstRule'', the first book of the ''SwordOfTruth'' series, has the protagonists storming the villain's castle toward the end. Played with the twist that the villain, who believes himself invincible, lets them walk right in the front door.
