* Parum from ''PhantasyStarUniverse''. Though large sections are given over to nature reserves, the majority of the planet is urbanized.

* A specific example from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' is [[EarthIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse Holy Terra]], its oceans drained away and its surface completely overgrown with cathedrals and administrative buildings (the Imperial Palace itself covers most of Europe, while the Astronomican is inside a hollowed-out Mount Everest). The [[EternalEngine Forge Worlds]] of the [[MachineWorship Adeptus Mechanicus]] are planet-sized industrial sectors, while Hive Worlds are only partial examples, consisting of [[MegaCity enormous arcologies]] dotting a vast {{polluted wasteland}}. Finally, Necron Tomb Worlds are covered in eons-old alien ruins, beneath which deathless metal warriors slumber in stasis... at least until interlopers wake them up.

* In ''Film/JupiterAscending'', the planet Ourus, the birthplace of humanity, has buildings that stretch above the atmosphere and two artificial rings.



** In ''[[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse The Hutt Gambit]]'', Han Solo notes that the uppermost levels of [[WretchedHive Nar Shaddaa]] look like the lowermost levels of {{C|rystalSpiresAndTogas}}oruscant. He promptly resolves NEVER to visit the lowermost levels of Nar Shaddaa.
** 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 ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' and ''Film/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.

** The new series features a library planet in "Silence in the Library"/"Forest of the Dead", which is deserted due to a colony of [[LivingShadow Vashta Nerada]].
** San Helios from "Planet of the Dead" was once one, before The Swarm reduced everything on that world to sand.

* Pestako from ''TheFiveStarStories''. A small, pluto-like planetoid with no natural atmosphere that was originally used for mining, the planet has glittering bands of light stretching across its surface that are actually highways so big you can see them from space.

** ''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.
