** The BigBad of the Shining Armor Arc, [[GeneralRipper General-Admiral Makarov]], is a GenreSavvy LargeHam RealityWarper, so as such has these (or at least creates them when necessary). The FinalBattle between himself and Shining Armor ends up playing out in a fortress complete with EvilTowerOfOminousness, and filled with every evil gadget that Makarvo can come up with.

Added DiffLines:

** [[EvilSorcerer Lung]] lives in an ancient Chinese fortress perched on a crumbling seaside cliff, inhabited by a {{Mook|s}} army of terra-cotta soldiers, monsters, and {{death trap}}s. [[GreaterScopeVillain Tarakudo]] finds it all very cliched.

* WesternAnimation/InvaderZim plans his conquest of Earth from an ElaborateUndergroundBase beneath his house, with a backup base in the form of a SpaceStation he occasionally uses. His one-time rival, Tak, operated out of an EvilTowerOfOminousness disguised as the skyscraper headquarters of a hot dog company.

* Lots of series set in TheDCU. A recent ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' story featured the debut of a realtor who specialized in finding properties for super-criminals. [[AbandonedWarehouse Abandoned warehouses]], [[AbsurdlySpaciousSewer spacious sewers]], [[CircusOfFear rundown theme parks]], you name it.

* The ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' supplement ''Evil'' contains instructions for playing evil [=PCs=], including details on the construction of an evil lair. These cover finding a remote location, dealing with local creatures and possibly making them your minions, the cost of constructing a lair underwater or inside a volcano, creating magic traps and guardians, building escape routes...pretty much a short handbook for this trope from a DangerouslyGenreSavvy villain's point of view.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'', being a webcomic about MadScience, naturally has several of these... Some more impressive than others. When we're first introduced to Helen Narbon she's plotting to TakeOverTheWorld from a rented office above a dentist's surgery, and her sometime-rival Lupin Madblood has built one [[BasementDweller in his mother's basement]]. [[HumbleBeginnings But hey, everyone's got to start somewhere, right?]] They both eventually move into much more impressive digs later on.
* Despite being the TropeNamer for ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder, ''Webcomic/AMiracleOfScience'' only has one truly straight example. It's a ''really'' impressive example, though.

* The Franchise/MarvelUniverse has the modestly named Castle Doom (In the city of Doomstadt, in Doctor Doom's home country of Latveria). The ComicBook/RedSkull, Superia, and ComicBook/{{HYDRA}} seem to prefer elaborate bases hidden on seemingly deserted islands. The Kingpin, being a [[CorruptCorporateExecutive "legitimate businessman"]], has a penthouse in a New York skyscraper-- with the floor directly below him packed full of lowlife goons. Doctor Demonicus raised an island from the floor of the Pacific Ocean. {{Magneto}} had his own private asteroid base in orbit.
