* Clockpunk-style mechanisms appear at times in {{Bionicle}}, although they have never really dominated the universe. Toy-wise, most of the earlier sets had gear-based action features, which the designers gradually abandoned. Story-wise, Turaga Dume's secret chamber in the second movie had a sundial-mirror-thing built into its floor, that used a clockwork mechanism to rotate. And though we didn't see it, the [[AIIsACrapshoot Vahki]] robots also made use of these according to WordOfGod.

Clockpunk settings are often populated by {{Clockwork Creature}}s. Expect invocations of LeonardoDaVinci and SirIsaacNewton. This may connect to other PunkPunk styles, especially SteamPunk and CattlePunk -- and also DungeonPunk.

* The Robert E. Howard Literature/ConanTheBarbarian story "Literature/RoguesInTheHouse" mixes clockwork with DungeonPunk. Instead of being the typical EvilSorcerer, the villain of the story, Nabonidus, is basically the evil offspring of [[GadgeteerGenius Leonardo da Vinci]] and [[TheChessmaster Machiavelli]] and uses various clock-tech devices to secure his home.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/TinyPlanets'', the protagonists' home features a variety of shiny brass cog- and spring-driven devices. It's also one of the aesthetics visible on the Tiny Planet of Technology -- which itself is set up like a life-sized orrery, with moons that don't so much orbit as stick out on long poles from a rotating ring at its equator.

* ''DeadlyRoomsOfDeath'' has no form of power generation and no large beasts of burden, so the weights that power the clockworks of various machinery have to be rewound by human work.
