* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Alamo The Battle of the Alamo]]: Wikipedia says "Described by Santa Anna as an 'irregular fortification hardly worthy of the name', the Alamo had been designed to withstand an attack by native tribes, not an artillery-equipped army." Yet despite having a numerical advantage of between 7:1 and 10:1, the attackers took over twice as many casualties (wounded and killed) as the defenders when they stormed it.

** Hyrule Castle must be stormed by Link toward the finale of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', which now serves as the prison for [[FinalBoss Calamity Ganon.]]

** Hyrule Castle must be stormed by Link toward the finale of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', which now serves as the prison for [[FinalBoss Calamity Ganon.]]]] What makes this unique is that, thanks to the game's extreme open-world design, you can try to pull this off at literally any point you desire after the tutorial section on the Great Plateau. Even if you ''don't'' plan to try and beat the game that quickly, there are several quests that encourage you to briefly sneak into the place a bit early just to collect the valuable treasures there.

* The eponymous girls may hold the record for fasting storming ever in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirlsMovie'' after they realize that not only has Mojo Jojo escaped to his volcano-top lair amidst the chaos of them fighting his superpowered primate army, but he's kidnapped the Professor (their dad) to boot. A series of big, intimidating barricades lock into place to keep them out...and they rip through them in ''seconds'' like they're paper. Unfortunately, the villain has a [[HumanShield backup plan]] to keep them at bay that's much more effective.

* The ''{{Wild ARMs}}'' series typically has an assault on the enemy's HQ in the middle of the game, with TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon being somewhere more impressive.

* "Stürmt das Schloss"[[note]]"Storm the castle"[[/note]] by Music/{{Tocotronic}} is a rather metaphoric example, titled because [[FunWithAcronyms it shortens to "SDS"]], a [[https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sozialistischer_Deutscher_Studentenbund political]] reference.

* Appropriately, the ''Film/AustinPowers'' movies follow suit: ''Austin Powers'' ends with Kensington leading British forces to Dr. Evil's lair, while the ''The Spy Who Shagged Me'' ends with Austin infiltrating Dr. Evil's moon base, and ''Goldmember'' has Austin (with a little more help) invading Dr. Evil's underwater lair.
%%* The first and second ''Film/XMen'' movies follow the trope, while the third one [[InvertedTrope inverts it]].
