* Laurentia (and in a previous season, St. Germaine) in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' has a huge network of sewer tunnels under the city, capable of holding an unlimited number of player characters and their stuff and riddled with GraffitiOfTheResistance. The series makes it clear that the large tunnels are storm sewers, as would be expected since their cities are NoCelebritiesWereHarmed counterparts to the rainy Pacific Northwest and Caribbean, respectively. They're still pretty filthy.

* In the post-apocalypse ''VideoGame/Fallout'' universe entire societies grow and thrive in the sewers because they are one of the few structures left that have all their walls and lots of space to move around in. ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', for example, have the North sewers beneath Las Vegas. It is in fact a lot safer than living on the surface as the only gang there is weak and there are little to no animals attacking.

** The sewers of National City from the ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' comics are huge and spacious. There's enough room for the titular heroine to stand up or fly around without bumping into anything.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'' has the episode "Ruled Out" where Timmy has to go into the sewers to save Cosmos & Wanda from the long fabled Sewer Gator. In season 9's "Gone Flushin'" Timmy, Cosmo & Wanda, all in fish form have to escape the sewers, which would be realistically big if you were the size of a goldfish.
