* ''VideoGame/ClubPenguin'' had "System Defender", in which the player has to set up cannons to stop the MechaMook from destroying the EPF Mainframe computer. Interestingly, while threats could be simulated by all players, there would be live threats that could be handled by members only.

* The TropeMaker was the various user-made defense maps in ''{{Starcraft}}'' - Sunken D, Turret D, [[GoodBadBugs Stacked]] Photon D, etc. The Starcraft editor did not allow you to create new units or buildings, so they usually made much more use of mobile units than most current Tower Defenses. See, for example, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpgj_1dGlEw this video]] of Weed D, which is recognizably a fixed-path Tower Defense game except that [[UnbuiltTrope the "towers" being "built" are Mutalisks]].

Another form of Tower Defense features a single tower or gate on one side of the screen, which is then beset by the Creeps marching forth to destroy it. The player is usually given one or more weapons directly controlled by them, while upgrades may add automatic defenses and defenders.

The third form of defense game is the "Tug-of=War" style. In which there are two towers or bases at each end of one or more paths, and the player(s) and AI send different units down the path to attack the enemy base(s). Opposing units that meet will fight each other, and the object is to push the enemy force back to their own side and destroy their base(s).
