* 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]].

[[http://scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/34166/link-between-warhammer-fantasy-and-warhammer-40k Apparently]] the fantasy setting's world was once set within the 40K one (inside the Eye of Terror), but this has since been denied.

** 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.

This also clearly establishes that the Discworld is set in an [[AnotherDimension alternative universe]] with different natural laws.

* 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.

* ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}'' is a strange case - All main-series regions (and some side-series ones) are based on ones in the real world, real-world animals and locations are referenced in older Pokedex entries, and a Team Aqua grunt mentions [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Poseidon]] in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire.]]'' However, the unusual technology, elementally-superpowered wildlife with no onscreen real-life animals in sight, increasingly complex and unique mythology and history, and plain ol' [[http://www.gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2012/11/23/pok-233-mon-39-s-burning-questions.aspx?PostPageIndex=1 Word]] [[WordOfGod Of God]], among other factors, make it very much seem like a ConstructedWorld.

* ''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.
