* In all of the ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' games, the final dungeons involve some sort of [[ItsAllUpstairsFromHere floating structure]]. You can tell that they are the final dungeons because 1) They're ''floating'', 2) They have the epic "this is going to be our final journey" music, and 3) the dungeons are located disturbingly far away from civilization and many [=NPCs=] are telling you that you must not fail or else the world is [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom doomed]] before you head out.

* In all of the ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' games, the final dungeons involve some sort of [[ItsAllUpstairsFromHere floating structure]]. You can tell that In order, they are are:
** In the ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonRescueTeam'' games,
the final dungeons because 1) They're ''floating'', 2) They dungeon is Sky Tower--an enormous palace made of clouds that floats in the sky and serves as the home of [[PhysicalGod the legendary dragon, Rayquaza.]]
** In ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers'', the final dungeon seems like Temporal Tower: a floating, mystic structure which is the embodiment of time and in the middle of collapsing. However, it proves to be a DiscOneFinalDungeon; the ''real'' final dungeon is Dark Crater, an active volcano shrouded in dark power which serves as the secret home of the true BigBad, Darkrai.
** ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonGatesToInfinity'' you
have the epic "this is going to be our final journey" music, and 3) Glacier Palace: a massive citadel made of ice, the dungeons are located disturbingly far away top of which is increasingly warped into an EldritchLocation due to the presence of the local EldritchAbomination.
** ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'' has the Tree of Life, a mountain-sized tree which is the source of all life on the planet. Currently being lifted
from civilization and many [=NPCs=] are telling you that you must not fail or else the world is [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom doomed]] before you head out.surface of the earth, the top branches reach into outer space.

* ''SilentStorm'' ends with your squad storming the Thor's Hammer headquarters and facing off against the leader of the conspiracy who is [[spoiler:wearing a flying version of a [[PoweredArmor Panzerklein]]]]. The goal is to stop them from launching a KillSat that would allow them to dominate the ravaged post-WorldWarTwo nations.

* ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea}}'' This series has several:
** Disgaea: Hour of Darkness has HellInvadesHeaven. Enough said.
** Disgaea 2 has you inside [[spoiler:Zenon's castle,]] which is the lair of the main villain that has been present the entire game. It looks awesome in itself.
** Disgaea 3 pulls a WhereItAllBegan for this one. [[spoiler: It's the Overlord's Castle, albeit immensely cleaned up. Originally, everything was black-colored, and now it's a stark white. Quite the contrast, which is noted by the cast.]]
** Disgaea 4, which has you [[spoiler: inside a planet-destroying weapon known as Fear the Great, controlled by God himself and fueled by pure malice.]] The place is bleak, mostly black, grey, and white, and has a bunch of beings of [[spoiler: pure malice]] running around, converging towards the center. The [[spoiler:malice creatures]] were all [[spoiler:made by one guy's malice,]] by the way.
** Disgaea 5 brings us a two-parter. [[spoiler: The Netherworld Dark Demise is the home base for Void Dark's machinations. You land at the outer areas and have to fight your way in.]]

* The final showdown of ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'' takes place atop the Aesir Tower, headquarters of Aesir Corporation and BigBad Nicole Horne. ''VideoGame/MaxPayne2'''s final battle happens inside the Woden Manor, and is initially a two-person [[StormingTheCastle castle storm]] until [[spoiler:Mona is gunned down by Vlad]] at the end of the second to last level, at which point Max chases the BigBad straight to the top for the final level and faces off with him for the last time.

* ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'' subverts this with Konrad's hideout, which the player spends the majority of the game trying to get to. After finally getting there, the last of the Damned 33rd immediately surrenders, leaving the player with just Konrad to face, and after climbing the building and finally meeting him face to face...[[spoiler: you discover that he was DeadAllAlong, and the Konrad that was talking to you for most of the game (as well as the Damned 33rd who surrended) were just hallucinations. While there ''is'' a "fight" with the hallucinatory Konrad, it just consists of "Shoot Konrad and win." There's an optional final battle after that, but it just takes place in some non-descript ruins against the rescue team who comes for you, and fighting and killing them just triggers one of the bad(der) endings.]]

* ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheCuriousVillage'' has the Tower. You've been talking about it since the start of the game, heard strange noises coming from it, and just acquired the obscure key needed to unlock the way to it. Now you just need to complete 10 extremely difficult puzzles to get to the top and have everything revealed.
* ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheDiabolicalBox'' has Herzen Mansion. Believed to be haunted by a vampire, Layton and Luke must traverse the woods, lake, and bridge leading to the castle where they must then be tied up by the BigBad only to escape, solve several more puzzles, and prepare for the final confrontation where everything is revealed.
* ''Professor Layton and the Lost/Unwound Future'' has [[spoiler:a gigantic mobile fortress full of weapons ready to destroy London, controlled by TheManBehindTheMan who ran away during TheReveal, kidnapping Flora in the process.]]

She will be your final opponent, though not before you finally get to take out every other villain you've wanted to throttle, plus a couple of [[TheReveal unexpected]] foes.]] And the ''tower itself'' [[PowerGlows is glowing]] like a beam of light.

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' is tricky, given that there are many that wrong choices the characters and even the player can make. [[spoiler:While Mitsuo's dungeon is an obvious DiscOneFinalDungeon, both Heaven and Magatsu Inaba could very well count, depending on what ending the player gets. The ''real'' VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon is Yomotsu Hirasaka, where the game's real BigBad lurks. Yomotsu Hirasaka is also a GeniusBonus for those aware of Shinto mythology: it is the path that leads down to Yomi, the Shinto underworld.]]
*** The UpdatedReRelease, The Golden, Adds in another TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon with [[spoiler:The Hollow Forest, unlocked only when the player maxes new character Marie's Social Link before the new Winter events. Made even more convincing by having the Combined power of both Namatame and Adachi's Powers given by the True final boss forced onto herself.]]

* The final dungeons of the ''VideoGame/WorldOfMana'' games tend to take place in or near the WorldTree. One exception is ''VideoGame/SecretOfMana'', with a [[ThatsNoMoon floating superweapon that's big enough to be mistaken for a FloatingContinent]].

** ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonorVanguard'''s final mission 'The Crucible' takes place in a large factory that is visible in the distance during the parachute drop in the previous mission 'Endgame' and is the largest most heavily fortified structure in the game. The mission also takes place on the 25th of March 1945, during Operation Varsity, exactly one fortnight before the war ended in Europe.
