Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemThreeHouses'', [[spoiler:[[TechnologicallyAdvancedFoe those who]] [[TheManBehindTheMan slither in the dark]]/[[AbusivePrecursors the Agarthans]]]] have one of these, which explains how they've avoided detection for so long.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/EvaSessionsSomeplaceVastAndDry'': The NERV Evangelion Center originally started out as an conventional above-ground research center, before gradually transitioning most of it facilities to the canonical underground [=GeoFront=] to better protect them from attack by the Others. In this case, the NERV [=GeoFront=] is an genuine achievement of human civil engineering, [[spoiler:rather than the canonical repurposing of the buried remains of the object that [[{{Panspermia}} brought life to earth]].]]


* In Travis Corcoran's ''Literature/{{Aristillus}}''series, the entire Lunar Colony pretty much counts as this, especially from the perspective of the Earth government. The colony is composed of miles of tunnels carved out by tunnel-boring machines under the lunar surface of the Aristillus crater, and when the Earth military [[spoiler:invades the colony]] they find it a maze of twists, turns, and angry natives trying to kill them with extremely large guns.

* Wiki/SCPFoundation has a number of underground sites that contains artifacts, creatures, and locations that could [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt burn/rewrite/exterminate the whole world and to an extent the]] ''[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt universe]]'' if they were to be left unregulated. There is no known exact number of how many underground sites the Foundation has, but these sitescould be located in a places where there is a high population density, simply masquerading as a ordinary business, or just located in simple, well-known army base.

* ''GIJoe'' is rife with these. The original Joe base, "The Pit", is hidden underneath the chaplain's assistants' motor pool at Ft. Wadsworth in Staten Island. When this is destroyed by Cobra, a new Pit is built out in the desert. And Cobra has a fair number of secret bases themselves, including an ''[[TownWithADarkSecret entire town]]'' brimming with underground evil.
