* Greenhill Town in ''Anime/BuBuChaCha'' seems to be set up for this, with the goal of letting the protagonist of the show learn new things in each episode.

* ''Literature/DonQuixote'' is a Deconstruction: the protagonist wants to be a KnightErrant in a MedievalEuropeanFantasy. Unfortunately, all he can be is the original LordErrorProne in a {{Picaresque}} novel. However, his world (heavily based on RealLife Spain) is really focused on maximizing the misadventures of a LordErrorProne. La Mancha, where the plot of the first part of the novel happens, has a hierarchical structure where everyone knows his place: An innkeeper calls the VictimizedBystander that wants to kill Don Quixote (because he attacked them first) invoking the InsanityDefense as a way Don Quixote will never be found guilty. But the population always takes the law on their hands, so they become BadassBystander who beat Don Quixote; when Don Quixote doesnít want to pay another innkeeper they gave Sancho a HumiliationConga; etc. There is a rural police called the Holy Brotherhood, but they cannot be bothered with a loony guy. They are seen doing their job escorting criminals to their punishment, but their competence is dubious when Don Quixote can outsmart them. The second part of the novel show us all the resources the Spanish empire has are invested fighting the Ottoman empire. At the last part of the second part, don Quixote goes to Barcelona, where there is a Civil War. Then, this environment, that must be more friendly to a KnightErrant, is even more aggressive: the LoveableRogue, a AffablyEvil AntiVillain, fears from his own men a treason; most of the {{Pirate}}s are the Ottoman empire's {{Privateer}}s, and we discover the Spanish crown has convinced the Muslim population to do TheMigration as a better alternative to a FinalSolution. The idea is that even without a InstantEmergencyResponse, La Mancha population knows there is a government and they better behave. The clash between fiction assumptions and reality is one of the book themes.

* The world of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' suffered from an apocalypse about 1000 years ago due to a nuclear war and the return of magic, and still hasn't quite recovered. Civilization is limited to small, sparodic kingdoms, and the rest of the world is filled with ruins, ancient dungeons, monsters, etc, perfect for any young adventurers out there.

* [[WeWillUseManualLaborInTheFuture Certain advances in technology]] may eliminate types of action and adventure that you want. If you want space combat to resemble the Age of Sail, you probably don't want the possibility of fast, autonomous drone fighters or A.I.-guided missiles to battle at extended range with little human input. PointDefenseless has to be present if you want the glamour of fighter jocks that don't get unceremoniously blown out of the air en masse by AntiAir.

* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' is one of these, with the profoundly unnatural superhero/supervillain system existing only because of the mutual threat of the [[OmnicidalManiac Endbringers]] and the manipulations of [[NebulousEvilOrganization Cauldron]].

An interesting phenomenon in WorldBuilding in gaming, and certain kinds of SpeculativeFiction: the focus of a game or story dictates aspects of the setting in many subtle ways.

* According to {{Word of God}}, the SchizoTech in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is due to trope. If a piece of technology would get in the way of ninjas doing cool ninja things, it doesn't exist. This is why you don't have motor vehicles (with [[Anime/NarutoTheMovieNinjaClashInTheLandOfSnow some exceptions]]) or telephones, because they would obsolete running through forests and relying on messenger birds, but you still have computers, televisions and oddly short-wave radio. Modern telephones do apparently exist but no-one ever uses them.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' is an interesting example. The way technology was developed makes conflict quite likely, with easy FTL and high levels of energy, but technology for things like terraforming is rather limited. It makes habitable worlds a commodity worth fighting over. [[spoiler: This is obviously intentional, as the [[AbusivePrecursors Reapers]] rely on conflicts between races to make their military victory over the galaxy easier. They deliberately [[LostTechnology left behind the technology]] they did to encourage races to develop along this path. ]]
