** Twice in ''The Inevitable Takeover'' -- first, Dib and Tak lead [[LaResistance the Group]] in attacking Zim's base in order to stop his wedding to Gaz. This fails, since not only does Gaz not ''want'' to be saved (and she gives Dib a pretty brutal HannibalLecture to prove it), but Zim completely kicks Tak's ass.\\

** In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'', it happens multiple times; assaulting Regret's temple, assaulting the Library, a very special case of assaulting the government towers of High Charity (starting from the ''inside''), storming Delta Halo's Control Room, etc.
** It goes even crazier in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'', which involves assaulting a Covenant-controlled city, followed by storming a Flood-controlled cruiser, then storming the communications relay held by Truth's remaining forces, and ''then'' storming the Flood-controlled High Charity. You also storm yet ''another'' Halo Control Room.

* The second half of ''{{Freelancer}}'' is essentially [[SerialEscalation one string of Castle Storms after another]]. First, you attack Governor Tekagi's fortress to retrieve the Proteus Tome. Then you attack a secret Rheinland shipyard with battleships under construction, guarded by ''seven'' capital ships. Then you attack a secret jail in the Alaska system guarded by the entire LSF. Then you attack a Nomad installation to retrieve a power cell. The game ends with an attack on the [[spoiler:Nomad]] home system, complete with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyson_sphere Dyson sphere]].
** Sadly overshadowed predecessor ''{{Starlancer}}'' has several missions that could fit the trope, even if you only count the ones where your task is to run interference for a boarding party and/or a cargo lifter trying to gain entry to the target, as opposed to simply blowing it up.

* The ''StarWars: [[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Dark Forces]]'' series is all about storming bases. Be it Imperial battle cruisers, smuggler's hideouts, Sith temples or criminal kingpin outposts, you name it, you'll storm it.

* Seeing as most ''FireEmblem'' games start with your main character being driven from their castle and kingdom, one can expect lots of literal StormingTheCastle missions to take back the throne in each game. However, these examples are rarely TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon.

While his friends did travel alongside him to back him up, expecting incredible danger, Goku managed to defeat them anyway, and take the Dragon Balls, so while it was a great show of support, their presence wasn't really needed. The look on their faces when Goku told them exactly what he did was priceless. A good thing to note is that Goku [[BadassAdorable was only 13 when he did this]], so the gang were reminded [[ChildrenAreInnocent it's a good thing that Goku has a heart of gold as well his great strength]].
