* ''VideoGame/PhantomDoctrine:'' One mission takes you to an undisclosed penthouse in Sears Tower, Chicago, which was the tallest building in the world in 1983 when the game takes place. It's more like an office than an apartment, and one of your team describes it as looking "oddly unlived in." It isn't the final boss fight, but the EliteMooks will come after you.

* ''[[Series/WonderWoman1975 Wonder Woman]]'': In "The Girl with a Gift for Disaster ", [[MonsterOfTheWeek William Mayfield's]] plot has been foiled by Wonder Woman, but he must gather his prized collection before making his escape. So Wonder Woman catches him in his executive suite, has a [[CurbStompBattle very short, very decisive fight]] and locks him up in his own display case.


* The last mission of ''VideoGame/HitmanAbsolution'' takes place at the top of an upscale housing complex. One method of killing the final boss's moll, Layla ("I should've been a nun... But I like to fuck."), is to spike her food with a poison frog extract, conveniently on display in the boss' showroom. This causes Layla to hallucinate and leap off the building while attempting to fly. Whoops.

* ''[[ComicBook/RobinSeries Robin Vol 1]]'' ends with two fights in King Snake's executive suite fifty floors above the streets of Hong Kong. In the first Snake pummels Clyde Rawlins to death, and when Tim arrives and sees his ally dead he's able to use a bit of misdirection and kick Snake out the window, where he then leaves him clinging to the ledge with ComicBook/LadyShiva standing over him who is implied to have made him fall to his death, though of course he shows up again later.


* Though it's not the final confrontation, about midway through ''Videogame/DeusExHumanRevolution'' Adam faces off against a dozen heavily-armed Belltower soldiers in the private offices of Tai Yong Medical's CEO. Can be played straight if Jensen's heavily armed and specc'd to kick ass and take names, or it can be subverted if you've gotten the cloaking upgrade and slip out through a convenient air vent (or just [[ProperlyParanoid put a gas mine near the entrance]]).
