* ''TabletopGame/BaseRaiders'' takes place in a world where all superheroes and villains just suddenly disappeared fairly recently. Organized crime is making a comeback in the absence of superpowered vigilantes, there's a significant population of non-humans that the government isn't sure what to do with, and there's a growing black market in artifacts looted from the abandoned bases of the missing supers. Some of those artifacts are even capable of providing superpowers to Base Raiders or those they sell them to.

** DeconstructedTrope. When the fate of humanity routinely lands in the hands of a small number of people, all it takes is one screw-up and the world goes to hell in a handbasket

* ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'' is set in an Adventure-Friendly World that ran out of adventure. The society on Baravada is a crumbling anarchy, and the people are literally dying of boredom.

*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', C'hou has been turned into one of these, complete with new geography, MonstersEverywhere, and [[ChaosArchitecture ruins that make no sense]], as the four constantly lampshade. They're told that the Pyar gods made the world to be more like the G'heddi'onian homeworld, which logically leads them to the conclusion that the gods are crazy.

** On top of that, the return of magic has resulted in plenty of opportunities and perils, including Awakened creatures, mana storms, and oh, yeah, the dragons (some of which run said megacorporations). Expansion of cyberspace and cybernetics have led to the rise of AIs, strange memetic horrors, and people who seem to interact with the Internet using only their minds. Everything inside a city is usually a mixture of corporate intrigue and gang warfare; everything outside a city is likely an overrun wildland full of dangerous and hungry magical beasts.

** As a result of the above, MinovskyPhysics is commonly used in better-developed settings. Need a static world? Have something [[EnforcedTechnologyLevels destroy technologies outside the paradigm]]. WeWillUseManualLaborInTheFuture? The Plott-Devais machine enables humans - perhaps even just a small number of humans - to consistently outperform machines. Need to make cybernetics less common? Discover "souls" that machines lack and cybernetics damage. Want melee weapons to make a comeback? Invent shields that stop fast projectiles but not slow ones, or just some Phlebotinum that destroys gunpowder.

* Interestingly, Equestria of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' technically qualifies. Within the borders of actual cities, ponies are generally able to go about their lives normally, but there are numerous monsters and lost artifacts outside said borders--even nonpony civilizations appear to be more rough and tumble than what the characters usually experience. It's simply that most episodes focus on the life in the safe zones; there was even a joke where the main character had an epic adventure off-screen, leaving her assistant to lounge about for a while.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' has the MentalWorld of the Palace: It responds to the hidden desires of evil humans by creating massive dungeons, giving you an excuse for DungeonCrawling and {{Boss Battle}}s. It's ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve properties also makes it so even toy guns and fake melee weapons work like real ones, giving your party a way to obtain weapons to fight the monsters that inhabit the Palace, despite the heroes being teenagers in Japan, where real weapons (especially guns) are usually extremely hard to obtain.

* ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'', being a ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''-based comic, has adventurer as a separate profession. For their convenience there are several dungeon crawls around the world that is specifically designed to test the strength and wits of adventurers. Of course, most adventurers fail in these and get killed.

** ''TabletopGame/{{Eberron}}'' is a notable subversion of D&D's standard use of this trope while on its way to [[{{Reconstruction}} reconstructing]] it in believable ways, mostly based on comparable real-world situations. Most adventures are rooted in political intrigues in [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI the wake of a huge war]] while everyone quietly [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII gets ready for the next]], adventurers often come from the ranks of [[ShellShockedVeteran traumatized]], [[FromCamouflageToCriminal disaffected]], and [[ReturningWarVet unemployed]] veterans, [[TheGildedAge powerful multinational businesses are always looking to push into new markets by means fair and foul]], and the cities are [[FantasticRacism rife with racial tension as "monsters" are treated as second-class citizens]]. It's a world where Al Capone would still be caught for tax evasion instead of murder, but you could make a heck of an adventure out of the investigation and arrest if you wanted.

* ''[[TabletopGame/ProseDescriptiveQualities Swashbucklers of the 7 Skies]]'' is set in a world shaped like a snow globe where the only sizable land masses are large floating islands, and the seasons are dictated by massive weather patterns (the 7 Skies) that rotate around the Dome over the year. Large empires are difficult to establish and maintain, and armies are a challenge to raise, arm, and move effectively - especially since some of the Skies are incredibly dangerous to travel. Everything about the world, in short, is tailor-made to require everything important to get done by small groups of daring heroes engaged in high-stakes intrigue as they travel around the world in small, lightly-crewed flying ships.
