* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has no resemblance to our world apart from featuring humans.

* Steven Erikson and Ian Esselmont created a fictional setting that is used in the ''Series/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' novels amongst many others. * The setting of Robert Jordan's ''Series/TheWheelOfTime'' is implied to be set in a distant future Earth AfterTheEnd, but the setting, geography, and cosmology are so utterly different from ours that it qualifies as much as Middle-Earth does. * Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman's ''Series/TheDeathGateCycle'' is, like ''Series/TheWheelOfTime'', highly implied to be a distant future timeline of Earth's AfterTheEnd, but between the magic, the sundering into a number of different worlds, and various other factors, it also qualifies as a constructed world.

* ''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 [[GreekMythology 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.

* It isn't relevant to the story at all, but ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' (at least the manga and anime) takes place in one. Distance shots of the planet shows a giant continent shaped like Saitama prefecture, cities are named after letters of the alphabet, and one brief shot of the moon landing shows a flag that doesn't exist in real life.

* Creator/JRRTolkien's Middle-earth, as depicted in ''Literature/TheHobbit'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', is the TropeCodifier. His own term for this type of setting was Secondary World. HilariousInHindsight, since according to WordOfGod Middle Earth, also known as [[NorseMythology Midgard]], is our earth -- only set in the far-gone mythical past of gods and monsters, as a far, far prequel to all Anglo-Saxon myths. So, in theory, it's EarthAllAlong.
