* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'': Subverted with Earth, one of the most heavily populated planets in the galaxy. While it's known for being a heavily urbanized world, [[TechnologyMarchesOn advanced technology]] means there's plenty of breathing room. Energy production and "agriculture" are so advanced that they can fit two-hundred billion people on the planet using only ten percent of the available landmasses (and some of the seas) for megacities that are measured in cubic kilometers instead of square kilometers. The remaining ninety percent of the land is preserved sort of like continent-sized national parks.
-->'''Footnote:''' There are other ways to fit 200+ billion people on a planet, but this is one of a very few ways to pull it off [[GreenAesop while still having it be useful as a planet]].

* In addition to the series' more conventional City Planets, ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankGoingCommando'', features a couple of Baby ''Moons'' orbiting Dobbo and Damosel, that fit this trope perfectly. And you get to smash them to pieces with Giant Clank.

* The ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' series tends to feature at least one city-themed planet per game, and as such feature many variations on the theme. The straightest examples would probably be Planets Oltanis and Endako from the original trilogy, along with Igliak and Terachnos from the ''Future'' trilogy. Interestingly, however, the two most recurring examples, Planets Kerwan and Rilgar, are [[SubvertedTrope subversions]]. Kerwan ''is'' primarily covered in urban sprawl, but features plenty of green space nestled within the buildings, which may explain why it appears fairly Earthlike when viewed from orbit in ''Up Your Arsenal'' and ''Tools Of Destruction'', which also revealed it has oceans (in contrast with its orbital appearance in the original game, where it looks more like Coruscant). Meanwhile, Rilgar is focused on Blackwater City, but the planet as a whole appears to be primarily covered in oceans, and Blackwater City itself features a number of caves filled with coral-like formations that are accessible by a short elevator ride, implying that the city is very close to sea level; in a similar vein, Planets Kalebo III and Damosel also take place in urbanized areas built above massive bodies of water.

* New Detroit in ''VideoGame/WingCommanderPrivateer'' was one of the first industrial hubs in the Gemini Sector, resulting in a massive industrial boom that saw the initial settlement spread to cover the entire planet in only thirty years. The combination of a planet-wide city and heavy industrialization essentially destroyed the ecosphere and resulted in a near-perpetual cover of acid rain clouds.
** During the events of ''Wing Commander: Prophecy'', the Nephilim invaded the Gemini sector and bombarded New Detroit from orbit. The majority of the population was killed and the planet has since been abandoned as the cost of cleaning up would be astronomical.

* The Pirate Homeworld, a.k.a. Urtraghus, from ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption''. The only non-organic patches found there, such as the Metroid nests or the Leviathan Seed, were introduced to the planet by the SpacePirates very recently. As a result of heavy pollution, the planet is also covered in a PerpetualStorm of extremely corrosive acid rain that will kill Samus in seconds without a Hazard Shield.

*** In the ''Foundation'' series Asimov stated that he was drawing a direct historical parallel from Gibbon's ''Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire''. Ancient Rome was then the world's largest metropolis, with a population of over a million people, something which would not be matched again until 19th Century London. Rome was so densely populated that it could not sustain itself off of local agriculture and food was shipped constantly from North Africa to supply the city. Trantor likewise is dependent on imports of food from other planets, a point which becomes historically important in the fall of Trantor as the capital of the Galactic Empire. The final claimants to the title of Emperor are eventually forced to move to another planet, much as the government of the Western Roman Empire relocated to Ravenna during the transition to the Dark Ages.

* In ''Anime/TransformersCybertron'', in addition to the title planet, over thousands of years of relentless construction, Gigantion has become several massive layers of city surrounding an Earth-like inner planet.



* The concept is taken even further with The Hub in ''ComicBook/TransformersGeneration2'' a vast physically connected network of Cybertron-type worlds that serves as the centre for power of the Cybertronian Empire.



* Cybertron in all versions of ''{{Franchise/Transformers}}'' is a machine planet down to its core and is essentially the "body" of Primus, the transformer god with the matrix of leadership being a piece of his soul, making Cybertron a usually dormant GeniusLoci. In some of the animated franchises, Cybertron actually awakes and [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/9a/Primus.jpg transforms into Primus himself.]]



* 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.

In most series however, much of the planet is loosely, if at all populated, and it's CityPlanet appearance largely comes from simply being a ''metal'' planet, dotted with semi-independant mega-cities.
