* Throughout his brief self-titled series in the 70s, ComicBook/TheJoker worked out of his "Ha-Hacienda". It's not too clear where it was located, of if it even had a fixed location.

* Spoofed in ''[[Film/{{DEBS}} D.E.B.S.]]'', with Lucy's lair being something vaguely evil-looking. Then, after the film skewers the meetup dialogue (and Lucy's "evil" image), we find out that, despite all her high-tech gadgetry, the lair still has yet to be completed. This, of course, could be due to Lucy's just having come back from Antarctica or wherever.

** Although never shown onscreen in the films, according to supplementary material, Palpatine's Imperial Palace on Coruscant is... the old Jedi Temple. Makes perfect sense for a Sith, since it was built on top of an ancient site that was used by Force sensitives from both sides for their rituals.

* ''Literature/DrNo'': UnbuiltTrope. Dr No has one, built on a tropical island for the sole reason of feeding his megalomania. The book makes a great deal of noise about the time and expenses involved, and Bond muses about the strange, surreal quality of the whole thing.

** ''Series/ChikyuuSentaiFiveman'' uses a seemingly standard spaceship called Vulgyre as the headquarters for Zone. It ultimately turns into a massive plot point when [[spoiler:it turns out to not only be sentient, but the true leader of Zone who has been using their conquests to become the Galactic Super Beast.]]

** ''Film/RogueOne'' shows that Darth Vader has one on Mustafar, complete with an EvilTowerOfOminousness and impressive view of [[SceneryPorn the lava plains]]. It's an interesting choice of location given that he sustained most of his injuries that forced him to wear an armored suit in the first place on that planet.

It's an interesting choice of location given that he sustained most of his injuries that forced him to wear an armored suit in the first place on that planet. Presumably, it was his way of showing the planet did ''not'' conquer him, and a subtle [[EvilIsPetty dominance]] of Obi-Wan's line "IHaveTheHighGround".

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': The headquarters of the [[EvilCounterpart Dark Judges]] is the Dark Hall of a Justice, an AlternateUniverse counterpart of Mega-City One's Grand Hall of Justice. It used to be where they organized the omnicidal murges of their planet that left it devoid of life, but they occasionally go back to regroup since entering Dredd's dimension. Features a lot of {{Bizarchitecture}}, a nifty throne room, and a bone-littered courtyard marked by a [[OurFounder memorial statue]] of Judge Death carrrying out the last execution.

** In fact, the Dark Hall is simply Judge Death's personal lair. The other three Dark Judges are shown to have their own fortresses--Judge Fear for instance has a rather imposing-looking castle covered with SpikesOfVillainy on the inside and outside.

* Pretty much every ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' series have the villains based in one of these; in the [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers early]] [[Series/PowerRangersZeo seasons]] of ''Power Rangers'', the villains were frequently based on the moon. Other seasons/series have had the villains based in [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace space]] [[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm stations]], [[Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue other-dimensional]] [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai locations]], [[Series/PowerRangersTurbo submarines]], [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce caverns]], [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder island fortresses]], the list goes on.
** In the finale of ''Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman'', [[BigBad Radiguet]] (in his [[OneWingedAngel Raguem]] form) used his base, the Vylock (a floating, brain-shaped ship) for a unique purpose- to turn it into extra armor for himself (so the Jetmen [[AttackItsWeakPoint couldn't get him in his back wound]]); it worked for a while, but the Jet Garuda punched it off of him and destroyed it, leaving him vulnerable to the Jetmen's desperation attack, which he ultimately falls to.
