* Similar to ''Manga/OnePiece'', ''Manga/DragonBall'' takes place on an Earth-like world that clearly has nothing to do with our Earth.

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' is set on the continents of [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Archanea, Valentia]], [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Jugdral]], [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Elibe]], [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones Magvel]], and [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Tellius]], with the first three sharing the same world. [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Ylisse and Valm]], on the other hand, are simply the future versions of Archanea and Valentia, respectively. [[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates Hoshido and Nohr]] presumably takes place on a different, currently unnamed continent separate from the others.

* ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' takes place in a MedievalEuropeanFantasy world whose only very occasional similarities the the real world fall under RuleOfFunny (like a bandit leader disguising himself as Colonel Sanders because reasons).

* The ''VideoGame/OgreBattle'' series takes place primarily on the continents/nations of Zenobia and Lodis, whose geography has nothing to do with Earth's.
* ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' games from ''IV'' onwards take place in such worlds; the first three look that way at first, but arguably subvert it as ''III'' reveals that it all takes place on a very Earth-like world, and that the differently-shaped lands of the first two games (which ''III'' is a prequel to) are its HollowWorld.



* The ''Franchise/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' canon takes place in one. While it certainly has elements of various Asian and First Nation cultures, its certainly a very separate fantasy world. For example, almost all the animals are MixAndMatchCritters, a significant proportion of the population is able to [[ElementalPowers control one of the four elements]], it has their own path of technology advancement (which includes the invention of steam-powered jet skis before the hot air balloon, for example), and is linked to a spirit world. One of the most important spirits is the Avatar, who is continually reincarnated into a human body, and is close to a god in terms of power and respect. Further development was seen in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', where further shifting in politics, technology and ''metaphysics'' was seen.

* {{Zig Zagg|ingTrope}}ed in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''; Ooo ''really'' seems like this, having almost no connections to our world and a completely different geology (for one thing ''the planet is missing a chunk of its mass'')... except that we later learn that Ooo is EarthAllAlong after a disastrous global war caused a nuclear/magical apocalypse, which more or less wiped out humanity. The main character is the only human seen because he's one of the LastOfHisKind. The reason the world is so different is that said apocalypse [[TheMagicComesBack caused magic to return to Earth]] fundamentally changing and mutating all surviving life. Later episodes show that some magical artifacts, such as the Ice King's crown, pre-date the apocalypse, so Ooo is more like the post-apocalypse of a world that was once [[LikeRealityUnlessNoted very Earth-like]].

* The ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' universe had no connection whatsoever to ours, despite inter-dimensional travel being possible there. Multiple alternate universes and pocket dimensions exist, but none resembling ours. The creators have avoided having live-action adaptations of the series for fear that this segregation from the real world would be compromised in order to make way for a HumanFocusedAdaptation.

* The world of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', although full of {{Fantasy Counterpart Culture}}s, has no link to our world. ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' on the other hand is explicitly our galaxy [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin 38,000 years in the future]].

** In the ''Discworld/TheScienceOfDiscworld'' books, a clear connection is finally established, but characteristically it goes the other way around than you'd expect: the wizards at the Unseen University conduct an experiment to [[AntiMagic remove all magic]] from an area, which unexpectedly creates a BiggerOnTheInside universe -- ours, baffling in its lack of NarrativeCausality.

* Creator/TerryPratchett's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' has no physical connection to our own. However its basic nature is based on several old theories about how our world works, such as it being flat, and being orbited by the sun, and being on the back of a giant turtle. Its cities, nations and sometimes individual people are often clear analogies to those from earth's past and present.
** In the ''Discworld/TheScienceOfDiscworld'' books there ''is'' a connection between the Disc and Earth, but it's usually used for the wizards to [[MageInManhattan visit our world]], not for Earthers to visit theirs. Except once in the third book, and then it's by accident and they return Darwin to Roundworld ASAP. It happens again in the fourth book, rather more significantly.

A constructed world is a completely fictional setting, rather than our world in TheFuture, another planet in our galaxy, or an AlternateHistory. The heroes of its stories are usually the locals, who neither have nor need a connection with our present-day Earth. In others word, a world that is obligated to have a connection to a standard existing planet like present day Earth.
