* ''DayOfTheDead'' had most of the zombie research take place in an old nuclear bunker. Oddly enough, the scientists who ran the place kept the first level of the bunker open and in disrepair, and allowed people to just wander in and out as they pleased, as a way of keeping the labs a secret.

You need Ye Olde Nuclear Silo. Originally created in the ColdWar or in preparation for WorldWarIII, nuclear silos provide everything a real rebel army needs: It's a miniature military base removed from larger settlements and hidden from most observers in the sky, has all the pipes and cables for the industrial feeling, and those gigantic, slow-moving doors! It usually comes conveniently with fully functioning computer equipment since it was already designed to survive armageddon, and it also provides that cozy damp cave atmosphere. If you're really lucky, it may even come with [[EmptyQuiver a functional missile and warhead]].

* In ''Film/{{Stargate}}'' the military has hidden the titular gate in an old ColdWar-era underground facility. ''Series/StargateSG1'', however, moved the gate to the US Air Force's Cheyenne Mountain facility, home of NORAD. (To this day there is a sign over a door at Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station reading "Stargate Command." It leads to a broom closet.)

* While they can hardly be called rebels, the cast of UserFriendly temporarily moved to an abandoned missile silo at one point. Hilarity ensued.

* Turns out the government in ''VideoGame/TheHouseOfTheDeadOverkill'' were trying to develop a serum to create SuperSoldiers, only it went horribly wrong! The government covered it up and the bunker was forgotten. As you can probably predict it was found by the villain who used the serum to create the [[NotUsingTheZedWord mutants]] you fight in the game.

* In ''HighlanderTheAnimatedSeries'', one of the first immortals the heroes meet holds the knowledge of nuclear weaponry. Conveniently, he lives in a missile silo. * In the ''InspectorGadget'' episode "Down on the Farm", Dr. Claw attempts to launch a nuclear missile from a farm silo. This was during the ColdWar, you know. * The Autobots of WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime are based in a nuclear silo. They have the permission of the government, and it's in the middle of nowhere,hidden underground, fortified and big enough to comfortably hold things on a Cybertronian scale, so it's an ideal base for them.

* The Torturer's Guild headquarters in GeneWolfe's ''[[BookOfTheNewSun The Shadow of the Torturer]]'' apparently consists of the disused shells of huge, ancient starships. The torturers sleep in cabins, with portholes, and a throwaway line mentions that the ship's original AI is still functioning, though extremely deranged.
