* Strangereal, the original ''VideoGame/AceCombat'' setting, is a completely independent world, despite being heavily based on modern-day Earth. WordOfGod is that it was constructed so that the game could feature large-scale conflicts between superpowers without the [[NuclearWeaponsTaboo nuclear deterrent]] (nukes still exist on Strangereal, but are much rarer and have not been deployed nor had mass production implemented for a mutually ensured destruction philosophy). Of particular importance is that many aircraft are Earth models down to the names.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' takes place on an unnamed world ruled over by three (four, but one was destroyed) pantheons corresponding to a cardinal direction and associated continent - Northern, Southern, Western, and Eastern. Each pantheon exactly corresponds to a RealLife pantheon: Northern = Norse, Western = Babylonian, Southern = Chinese Zodiac, and Eastern = Greek (and deceased). The world is in a generally medieval setting, although they do take inspiration not only from Europe but also the Middle East and Asia, and certain areas (such as Cliffport and Tinkertown) have been technologically advanced via magic and a steampunk flair (both of which are pointed out and lampshaded). In addition to standard non-magic fighters, there are a plethora of magic, psionic, and holy warriors in the world, as befitting its TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons-inspired setting.

* The unnamed world of Eiichiro Oda's ''Manga/OnePiece'' has very distinct [[http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/Atlas geography]] and weather completely different from our Earth. And the FantasyKitchenSink mythology and the SchizoTech, like the [[ReinventingTheTelephone telecommunication]] [[OrganicTechnology snails]] ...

* Like the games, the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime and ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' manga areset in this - in fact, both resemble a ConstructedWorld ''more'' than the games do!

* Daikurikku in ''Anime/{{Simoun}}''. In fact, figuring out its bizarre laws (and the meaning behind [[GratuitousForeignLanguage pseudo-Latin]] terms) is among the (many) fun points of the series.
* ''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 [[UsefulNotes/KentuckyFriedChicken Colonel Sanders]] because reasons).

* The world of ''Literature/TheWitcher'' is clearly not set on Earth. Not only are the geography and the species different, it is implied that humans came onto this world (possibly from our own) through some kind of inter-dimensional accident. Also, at one point Ciri begins hopping through parallel universes and visits an inn apparently set in 18th century France.

** Even the structure of the planet has changed in the Mario world; while it's always been known that there had to be some wierd changes in geography given all the kingdoms and islands that get shown throughout the franchise, but the geography itself was shown as a copy of Earth in games like ''NES Open Tournament Golf'' or ''VideoGame/MarioKart''[[note]]As seen [[https://www.mariowiki.com/images/0/01/Worldplay.jpg here]][[/note]]. ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' shows off [[https://www.mariowiki.com/images/6/69/Super-Mario-Odyssey-Map.jpg a whole new geography]] for the planet, with the Mushroom Kingdom itself portrayed as a large, mushroom-shaped continent a little ways away from a much larger landmass.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/RidgeRacer'', loosely tied with the above, also features a completely independent universe, mainly to justify the fictional car manufacturers and models. While the fourth game makes reference to real world countries, the places and cars are fictional.

Compare ALongTimeAgoInAGalaxyFarFarAway, which is used more in [[SciFiCounterpart science fiction]] but usually has the same effect. Contrast MagicalLand, where the focus is on visitors to the setting and LikeRealityUnlessNoted. EarthAllAlong is a subversion of this trope. A world still called Earth but otherwise similar to a Constructed World is a FictionalEarth.

* ''VideoGame/TheTraderOfStories'' has a [[SceneryPorn really pretty one]].



* From the ketchup stains on Creator/MontyOum's napkin, we got the world map for Remnant, the world of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}''. Here, humanity is isolated to distant settlements by the creatures of Grimm, marauding shadowy monsters whose soul purpose for existing seems to be destroying humanity. Mankind has survived this long only thanks to supernatural crystals called Dust, which has boosted their technology to a more-or-less modern level, only with elementally charged guns and an alternative to the internet. Most animals besides the Grimm seem pretty similar to real life ones, though humans have a LittleBitBeastly subspecies called Faunus, for all your minority metaphor needs, and every person has the potential for Aura, which functions as a personal forcefield/health bar and can develop with training into a unique superpower called a Semblance. Then there's the matter of the Four Maidens, a legend regarding four young women passing down altogether magical powers.
