* Interesting example in {{Narnia}}, where there is a "Deep Realm" beneath the surface of the ([[FlatWorld flat]]) earth ruled by the Lady of the Green Kirtle, but it turns out that many of the enchanted slaves there are actually from an even deeper realm called Bism, where gemstones are alive. Once roused from their enchantment, they find the so-called Deep Realm uncomfortably close to the sky...

** In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', the world beneath is known as the Darklands and draws inspiration from pulp fiction of the early 1900s, such as Creator/EdgarRiceBurroughs's Pellucidar. It's divided into three "layers"--the uppermost is home to fairly normal humanoids like [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent goblins]] and [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame dwarves]], the middle layer is home to more reclusive races like the [[OurElvesAreBetter dark elves]], and the deepest pits are inhabited by [[EldritchAbomination unspeakable horrors]].

* VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} games have their share of underground caverns. Azol-Nerub, the capital of the Nerubian civilization, is a sprawling underground labyrinth that stretches across much of the continent of Northrend. The part where the Nerubians used to live is called the Upper Kingdom, and below that is the Old Kingdom, which consists of even deeper tunnels populated by nameless horrors and possibly one of [[EldritchAbomination the Old Gods]]. The Old God has been confirmed to be Yogg-Saron in the ''Wrath of the Lich King'' expansion.
