* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' has a lot of fun with this one. Most notable, in one episode Dr. Drakken builds a lair in the "World's Largest Cheese Wheel"; which, we are [[RunningGag reminded several times]], is not a cheese-covered building, but is in fact 100 percent Wisconsin swiss.

* While it rarely dwelt very long on any of them, nearly every supervillain to appear on ''Birdman'' had a snazzy lair of some kind. Mountains and personal islands were the most popular, but the sky was the limit, and more than one bad guy took up residence there.

** ''Film/RogueOne'' shows that Darth Vader has one on Mustafar, complete with an EvilTowerOfOminousness and impressive view of [[SceneryPorn the lava plains]].

->'''Ron Stoppable''': "Have we been in this lair before?"
->'''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''': "They all start to look alike after a while."

Every up-and-coming SuperVillain aspires to create a particularly cool Supervillain Lair. It may be an ElaborateUndergroundBase, an [[HauntedCastle old castle]] (preferably [[DeathMountain atop a craggy mountain peak]] in the middle of nowhere surrounded by a [[DramaticThunder perpetual lightning storm]]), an [[UnderwaterBase underwater complex]], an EvilTowerOfOminousness, a [[IslandBase volcanic isle]], a [[SpaceBase space station]], [[ExecutiveSuiteFight a corporate office building]], a [[BigFancyCastle BFC]] at the end of world 8 (in video games anyway) among other possibilities, but if you really want to be a cut above lesser villainous contemporaries you make it a [[FloatingContinent floating fortress]] or an AirborneAircraftCarrier. It will generally be stocked with most or all of the following:
