* Done repeatedly throughout the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series.
** In ''Halo: Combat Evolved'', the Castle was the Covenant cruiser ''Truth and Reconciliation'' to rescue Captain Keyes. Another example occurs with rhe Control Room.
** In ''Halo 2'', it happens ''three'' times; assaulting Regret's temple, assaulting the Library, and then a very special case of assaulting the government towers of High Charity, starting from the ''inside.''
** It goes even crazier in ''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.
** Also used in ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' when you have to assault the citadel.

* 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]].
