* Cybertron in ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', a machine world from core to surface. The only exception is ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'', which shows that Cybertron once supported organic life and ends with the planet transformed into a techno-organic Eden.

* Cybertron in ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', a machine world from core to surface. The usual food/water/air problems are averted thanks to the population being fully robotic and powered by GreenRocks. The only exception is ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'', which shows that Cybertron once supported organic life and ends with the planet transformed into a techno-organic Eden.

** Trantor, capital of the Galactic Empire, is apparently completely covered by urban areas by the time of the ''{{Foundation}}'' series. Until it's [[PlanetLooters sacked and looted]] into an agrarian world once the Empire falls.

** Parodying the deconstruction - even David Morgan-Mar knew he was running things into the ground - the last IW strip to touch on this "changes channels" halfway through to the Pirate storyline, where the captain [[VisualPun is flogging a dead horse]].

* ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'' spends a number of Star Wars strips deconstructing the idea, such as [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/386.html food]], [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/393.html sewage]], [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/396.html power]], [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/417.html heat output]], [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/420.html space]] and [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/434.html cooling]]. Unsurprisingly, ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'' also touches on the issue.

* In the Film/SuperMarioBros [[TheMovie Movie]], Koopa's globe of the [[HumanAliens dinosaur-ruled]] [[AlternateHistory parallel Earth]] includes a stylized depiction of a country-sized city as an island in a [[SingleBiomePlanet worldwide desert]] ([[OneWorldOrder which he counts as under his rule]]). As far as logistics, there's a severe shortage of food, clean air, and water, but it's largely blamed on Koopa's 20-year regime (and is the driving force behind his planned conquest of ''our'' Earth).

Sometimes referred to as a planet city, world city (though "world city" has also been used to mean other things), completely urbanized world, omniopolis / omnopolis, or [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecumenopolis ecumenopolis]]. While most examples are recent, the concept dates as far back as the nineteenth century work of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Lake_Harris Thomas Lake Harris]], and the term "City Planet" dates at least as far back as the first draft of the script for ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ANewHope''.
