** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' has Riften, a Bravil {{expy}} to the extent that it is a canal city and a WretchedHive.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/Birthright2017'', the city of Sangam, being built on the islands of a river delta, has an extensive series of canals. Most of them appear to be completely natural rather than man-made, complete with mangrove trees growing out of the water and along the banks.
