** ''Return To Ravnica'' addressed the question of why Ravnica doesn't have any large natural bodies of water. Turns out that they ''paved over the oceans''. After the failure of the guildpact the merfolk living beneath Ravnica began to sink huge sections of the city.

* Taris in Star ''Star Wars: ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic''
VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' is another one of these. Interestingly, it's not ''quite'' as ridiculously tall as other examples noted in the Film folder, as you do get to take an elevator to the "Lower City" and then another one to the "Undercity", where you actually get to stand on solid ground. It makes up for it in lower levels being WretchedHive[=s=], however, with the Lower City being almost entirely comprised of swoop gangs and a powerful crime lord, and the Undercity being filled with dangerously poisonous predators called rakghouls, with the only people living there having been banished to the Undercity for some crime or another, or born to people who were banished there long ago.

A '''City planet''' is a {{subtrope}} of SingleBiomePlanet and MegaCity, in which said biome ''is'' said city. In other words, this is what happens when someone takes {{Planetville}} a little too literally: there is only one "city" on the planet, and it covers the ''entire'' planet.

** It is interesting to note that Coruscant escapes some of the population questions specifically because it is depicted as having extensive areas dedicated to purposes other than habitation. In ''AttackOfTheClones'' and ''RevengeOfTheSith'' industrial zones and landing areas for spaceships more than a kilometer in length are shown. ''Everything'' is bigger on Coruscant! Even with vast areas that are unpopulated, ExpandedUniverse sources and one of the movie novelizations peg Coruscant's population at upward of 1 trillion permanent residents plus billions of transients. As a result, the planet has to import vast amounts of food from elsewhere.

* 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.
