Monumental Battle

Go To
"Wouldn't it be more appropriate to light up her torch?"

Destro: Cobra! Destroy the Taj Mahal!
Tight Ship: Why is Cobra attacking a tourist attraction with zero tactical value?

Somehow, a disproportionate number of fictional fights break out at easily-recognized national monuments and landmarks around the world.

One reason for doing this is that at least a portion of the audience will be familiar with the monument in question, whether by general knowledge or by having actually been there. This means the author doesn't have to justify the presence of a massive, ancient structure they just made up. In addition, the audience may feel more involved because the setting is familiar (allowing them to concentrate on the action), awed (because the setting is visually impressive), or concerned (because the setting itself might be in danger, and so elicits its own emotional response in anticipation of its defacement or imminent destruction).

This can be justified several ways: the landmark, or something buried underneath it, is said to posses occult powers; there is something of importance about the landmark itself, like a clue left by an Ancient Conspiracy; or there is a major delegation of world leaders being held very close by. As often as not, however, it's a simple case of Small Reference Pools.

Most common places:

  • Paris, France
    • The Eiffel Tower
    • Notre Dame
  • Giza
    • The Great Pyramids
  • South Dakota, USA
    • Mount Rushmore — presents the unique opportunity to do battle on Lincoln's nose. See also Rushmore Refacement.
  • London, England
    • London Bridge or Tower Bridge.
    • The Clock Tower containing Big Ben (it's official name is "Elizabeth Tower", named after the former UK monarch).
    • The London Eye.
    • Some way from London, but still recognisable as English; Stonehenge, usually of the "ancient occult powers" version.
  • New York
    • The Statue of Liberty has become a popular site for final one-on-one duels. (What it symbolizes is often a factor.)
    • The Empire State Building and (before a certain date) The Twin Towers.
  • San Francisco
    • The Golden Gate Bridge
  • Tokyo, Japan
    • Tokyo Tower
    • Tokyo Big Sight, aka the Tokyo International Exhibition Center, located on Odaiba in Tokyo Bay. The world's largest comic convention, Comiket, is held here twice a year for over half a million people.
    • Tokyo Dome
    • The Sunshine 60 skyscraper in Ikebukuro, which has many stores of all kinds: an aquarium, an observation deck, etc.

A consequence of The Eiffel Tower Effect, see also Monumental Damage. Compare The Very Definitely Final Dungeon - when the monuments are fictional, and the architects aren't limited by common sense. Or, often, the laws of physics. See also Landmarking the Hidden Base and Weaponized Landmark, which go a little way explaining why some of the battles take place where they do. This can become Harsher in Hindsight if some disaster ends up later destroying the monument you so gleefully smash in your work.

  • Eurostar has a series of ads promoting the high-speed train line between London and Paris by pitting two symbols of London and Paris against each other. One lets the Eiffel Tower fight Big Ben.

    Anime and Manga 
  • Besides Tokyo Tower, Tokyo Mew Mew also fought a battle in and around the Tokyo Dome.
  • Tokyo Big Sight, with its quadruple-inverted-pyramid shape is becoming popular for situations that poke fun at manga fans.

    • Hellsing lightened its fourth OVA finish by showing the villains heading to Big Sight afterwards to sell manga and perform various otaku activities.
  • A fight in the second episode of Shinzo, a fascinating and Timey-Wimey Ball-loving series which takes place After the End, finally shatters the already-wrecked Statue of Liberty. Nobody but the viewer knows the significance of it.
  • One of the most memorable battle of Fist of the North Star occurs on the fictional Pyramid of the Southern Cross, built by the will of Souther, worthless child enslaving brute of an Emperor and Kenshiro, the hero of the franchise.
  • The first part of the Read or Die OVA ended atop the Statue Of Liberty.

  • In Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, Edo Phoenix can even create a facimile of Big Ben using his Clock Tower Prison Field Spell. In theory, this means that he could conceivably use the Solid Vision Hologram system of the game to create a Monumental Battle anywhere, at least in spirit. (This would count as a Weaponized Landmark too, seeing as it has benefits to him in more than one way.)
  • In X1999, every battle between the Dragons of Heaven and Dragons of Earth takes place in several important locations in Tokyo such as the Rainbow Bridge, the Sunshine 60 building, the National Diet Building, and Tokyo Tower. With the exception of Kamui, every Dragon of Heaven is capable of summoning a "kekkai" or a Spirit Shield that keeps civilians out of the battlefield.

    Comic Books 
  • Uncanny X-Men
    • In issue #200, there's a big fight in Paris that includes Colossus getting thrown through the rose window of Notre Dame. This was the big payoff from Marvel having sent the comic's art team to Paris for X-Men publicity and story authenticity.
    • The issue before that featured the beginning of a big battle in the National Holocaust Memorial in New York, which was only ended when Magneto agreed to be arrested so Freedom Force would quit destroying shit.
  • In The New Universe series Psi-Force, during a climactic battle, Psi-Hawk—a gestalt entity with the magnified powers of the titular team—hit Rodstvow with the Washington Monument. He still lost, though. Rodstvow then walked into the National Archives and set fire to the Constitution.
  • Done in Secret Avengers during the Fear Itself arc. A mutant Senator with vaguely defined powers to "bring history to life", animates The Lincoln Memorial and exhibits from The Smithsonian to battle the invading enemies.
  • During the Captain Britain and MI13 portion of the Secret Invasion event, the Skrull invasion of Britain and the remnants of the human military have their climactic battle on Westminster Bridge. It's invoked to a degree, since a good portion of the battle is fought with magic and the location has a great deal of symbolic value for the British people linked to this.
  • The Umbrella Academy:
    • In The Apocalypse Suite, the Eiffel Tower is actually a space-faring warship built by robot zombie Gustave Eiffel.
    • The Lincoln Memorial becomes a giant monster in opening to the Dallas storyline, only to be shot in the head by a giant, stone John Wilkes Booth.

    • Wonder Woman (2006): Diana fights D'grth in the National Mall in Washington D.C.

    Films — Animated 
  • The Great Mouse Detective has a climactic fight in Big Ben between Basil and Ratigan. The fact that the characters are mice means the battle can also be on the hands themselves.
  • G.I. Joe: The Movie opens with a big, flashy battle between the Joes and Cobra over the Statue of Liberty. Even after being demoted from the final battle to an opening action scene, it's still often considered the highlight of the movie. (Hell, can you blame anyone? The one-minute sequence managed to include every little detail of the Statue at least once, and fighting from nearly every possible angle imaginable. And the music accompanying it was rather well-done compared to other cartoons like this. Most would have considered it a milestone of animation at the time.) It's so awesome that it's our page image, currently.
  • Wonder Woman (2009): The climactic fight against Ares and the zombified Amazons takes place at the National Mall.
  • In Turning Red, the confrontation between Mei and Ming in the climax takes place in the SkyDome which together with the adjacent CN Tower are the most iconic parts of the Toronto skyline.

    Films — Live-Action

  • King Kong climbed the south tower of the World Trade Center before jumping to the north tower in the 1976 version.
  • Seems that Alfred Hitchcock liked this trope a lot:
  • Big Ben features in the climax of The Thirty Nine Steps (1978).
  • The live action Richie Rich film parodied this with a climax that took place on "Mount Richmore", a mountain carved Mount Rushmore-style to look like the Rich family. Earlier in the film, the villain actually watches a little of North By Northwest.
  • In the final battle in Way of the Dragon, Bruce Lee and a very hairy-chested Chuck Norris duke it out in Rome's Coliseum.

    • Superman IV: The Quest for Peace features a chase between Nuclear Man destroying various landmarks and Superman quickly repairing things. Among them include the Great Wall of China and (of course) The Statue of Liberty.
  • Happens often in kaiju films: Godzilla and Angurius destroyed Osaka Castle in Godzilla Raids Again, Mothra wrecked Tokyo Tower in her debut film, and there have been at least three films with a final battle at Mt. Fuji.
  • Q: The Winged Serpent is finally killed in a surprisingly cool action sequence at the top of the Chrysler Building in New York City.
  • The fight with the alien robot in Monsters vs. Aliens culminates at the Golden Gate bridge.

  • G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra has an epic battle scene in Paris, where Cobra attempts to destroy the city with nanites. They fail, but manage to destroy the Eiffel Tower. Oddly, the Joes don't seem to care. (Well, they may not engage in conversation about the tower destruction, but Breaker seems to be genuinely appalled by the fact.)
  • The first Blade movie ends with a short scene of Blade hunting vampires in Moscow. Where, exactly? Well, on the Red Square, konechno!
  • Rush Hour 3 ends with Jackie Chan facing off against the Big Bad in a swordfight that starts in the Jules Verne restaurant of the Eiffel Tower and ends up on the girders of the outside. As is Rush Hour tradition, the baddie falls to his death onto a glass booth below.

  • In Sherlock: Case of Evil, the final battle between Holmes and Moriarty takes inside the clock tower housing Big Ben. (Shades of The Great Mouse Detective!)
  • Spider-Man: No Way Home: Peter sends a video to the Daily Bugle to bait the villains into fighting him at the Statue of Liberty. Not only is it a big obvious landmark that all the villains can identify, but Peter knows that there will be no innocent bystanders around.

  • Silverwing features the main character and friends getting turned into living bombs and dropped on Brazil of all places. Christ the Redeemer features prominently during the bombing run & after they escape they hide in a bombed out hole in the thing.
  • Percy Jackson fights monsters at the top of the Saint Louis arch (The Lightning Thief), Hoover Dam (The Titan's Curse), Alcatraz (Battle of the Labyrinth), and of course the Empire State Building (The Last Olympian). Thank the gods for mist
    • He also kills the Minotaur on Williamsburg Bridge (in fact, all the bridges in Manhattan are the site of battles) in The Last Olympian, and fights Telekhines on Mt St. Helens which is also where Typhon is trapped, until the battle accidentally frees him in Battle of the Labyrinth. The sequel series The Heroes of Olympus seems to be following the tradition, with the first time Jason, Piper and Leo face monsters is the Grand Canyon well, the first time we see Jason fight a monster, that is.

      • In The Pandorica Opens hundreds of aliens races gather at Stonehenge to battle it out for the Pandorica, with the Doctor standing between all of them and it. Except they're all working together against the Doctor to trap him in it.
  • * Highlander: The Series put the final fight of the third season, between Duncan MacLeod and his arch-enemy Kalas, atop the Eiffel Tower. Kalas thought he had Mac in a no-win situation - lose his head or else lose The Masquerade - but Mac realized that there was a critical flaw in Kalas's plan: the Eiffel Tower is made of steel, which makes it "the world's biggest lightning rod". He then killed Kalas and used the power of Kalas's Quickening, channeled through the Tower, to blow out the entire area's power grid, shorting out every computer for a mile or more in every direction - which included Kalas's hideout - and thus destroying the "or else" part of Kalas's plan.

  • The Conduit has several stages in or near various Washington D.C. landmarks.
  • Several missions in Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 take place around famous buildings, with them often being turned into infantry strongholds or super-weapons.

In the expansion, Yuri even remakes the Easter Island heads in his own image, with lasers shooting out of their eyes.
    • There was one moment where you got to fight in New York, optionally destroying the World Trade Center... they had to rename it in a patch.
    • Red Alert 3 has many more famous buildings around the battles. Some need to be destroyed to complete the mission, others have been fitted with weaponry to be used against you, including a weaponized Mount Rushmore with laser eyes!
    • In Tiberium Wars, GDI and Nod's first campaigns are in Washington DC; both feature a level where you take over the White House; GDI also has to defend the Pentagon. The Scrin's first mission takes place in London, and your objective (aside from destroying GDI), is to take out Big Ben, Parliament, and Buckingham Palace.
  • The final battle in Mass Effect 3 takes place in London, within sight of Big Ben. This is justified in that the Reapers are trageting major cities in order to easily harvest as many humans as possible.
  • BattleTanx: Global Assault was all about traveling to famous places in America, England, France, and Germany, and having a massive tank battle on top of their ruins.
  • In H.A.W.X., the PC and his squadmates fight in battles above Rio, Washington DC, and LA. In the DC mission, one of your squadmates mentions that the White House has been BLOWN UP in an attempt to kill the President. You also have to protect Air Force One.

White House? Don't you mean the "Fight House?" Hell, in the D.C. missions, you can go parading around and shooting up monuments (namely Lincoln) for some funny dialogue.

    • Fallout: New Vegas features a major battle over Hoover Dam, one of the last remaining sources of electricity in the wasteland.
  • Parasite Eve has the Chrysler Building as a Bonus Dungeon in the New Game Plus. The Statue of Liberty, which gets destroyed by the military and Eve, also serves as the backdrop for the final battle against Eve.

    Western Animation 
  • Kim Possible fought three villains at once at the Eiffel Tower; in a probable reference to the trope, she also fought Dr. Drakken at "The World's Biggest Wheel of Cheese".
  • In an exaggerated twist on Dexter's Laboratory, Dexter and Mandark brought Washington and Lincoln's figures from Mount Rushmore to life, and made them fight. They stop and go to get drinks after they realize they are both known for their honesty in pop culture.
  • The Real Ghostbusters faced an army of ghosts released when the Eiffel Tower was discovered to be a Steampunk Ecto-containment grid. Like the Highlander example, they managed to use the tower's unique design to their advantage, converting it into a transmitter which beamed the ghosts back to their containment unit in New York.
  • The South Park episode "Super Best Friends" had Jesus, Buddha, Joseph Smith, Krishna, Lao Tzu, Muhammad, and Sea Man (a parody of Aquaman) fighting David Blaine in Washington DC. Blaine brings the Lincoln Memorial to life to fight them, so they build and animate a giant stone John Wilkes Booth to fight back.
  • Jackie Chan Adventures: Jackie and Valmont were once in a fight on top of Mount Rushmore. This along with other battles taking place in San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge and Coit Tower, along with the Eiffel Tower, the Space Needle, and Uluru/Ayers Rock.
    • The opening title sequence has Jackie doing battle at most every major landmark in the world, interspaced with the live action Jackie Chan.
  • The Grand Finale of Mighty Max took place at Stonehenge.
  • At one point of the multi-part Grand Finale of Exo Squad, it is discovered that the Pentagon has been converted into a Neolord brood facility, and the Charlie-Fives are dispatched to take it out. The resultant battle eventually ends up on top of the Washington Monument.
  • The Rugrats once battled an egomaniacal... theme park owner's right-hand man in Paris, taking in the Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower.
  • This happened several times in Gargoyles, along with a tendency to deface or destroy the monuments with giant laser beams. The Statue of Liberty, the World Trade Center, Uluru, Notre Dame du Paris, Rockefeller Center, and George Washington Bridge all saw fighting, while the Great Sphinx of Giza, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, and NYC Cleopatra's Needle were severely damaged.
  • Happens regularly in Miraculous Ladybug. It does take place in Paris, but more often than not the fighting ends up at (or sometimes on) the Eiffel Tower, Arc du Triomphe, Notre Dame, etc. Showing off the different parts of Paris to non-French viewers is one of the show's goals, after all.
  • As the original Ben 10 series is a road trip across America, several battles take place on or near famous landmarks:
    • Ben's second fight with Kevin 11 takes place in San Francisco on the Golden Gate Bridge.
    • As Mount Rushmore is the base of a secret alien fighting society, it also ended up being the site of the climactic battle of a season.

    Real Life 
  • The Defense of the Great Wall in 1933. One of several battles in history at or around the Great Wall of China (hardly a surprise, given its purpose), but the only one with the Wall itself in the battle's name.
  • A common Urban Legend about the Great Sphinx of Giza says that it lost its nose in a battle like this, by cannon fire either from the armies of Napoléon Bonaparte, British troops, or the Mamluks. However, sketches of it as far back as 1737 still show the nose missing. More than likely, the true reason the nose was destroyed was vandalism by the iconoclast Muhammad Sa'im al-Dahr in AD 1378.
  • Napoléon Bonaparte's Battle of the Pyramids actually took place about nine miles away from the Pyramids, where they were only faintly visible on the horizon. Napoleon named the battle as such in order to imply that it had been a Monumental Battle.


Video Example(s):


A View to A Kill (1985)

James Bond and Max Zorin battle it out on top of the Golden Gate Bridge.
