* {{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 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.

* The original ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' canon is this. [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist The first anime]] seems like this in the beginning, but it's eventually revealed that the source of their world's alchemy is our world circa UsefulNotes/WorldWarI.
* The world of ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' mixes a fantasy setting with modern day technology, SciFi elements, and a wide variety of MixAndMatchCritters. Not to mention they write in a ''different language''. Of note is that the world map is basically an upside-down version of Earth, and there are places with names like [[UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity Yorknew City]]. [[spoiler: But then it's revealed that this upside-down Earth is only a small fraction of the actual surface area of the planet.]]

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

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has no resemblance to our world apart from featuring humans, although certain references hint that it may take place on Earth in some distant future.

* The setting of ''Anime/RoyalSpaceForceTheWingsOfHonneamise'' is similar to Earth during the early Space Age--but ''not'' identical. Almost everything about the world, from geography to clothing to eating utensils, is at least slightly different.

* 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 treated with the same level of horror as they were back in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII.)

* The Twin Worlds of ''VideoGame/TheLongestJourney'' are somewhat of a gray area. On one hand, its starts off as your regular run-of-the-mill CyberPunk dystopia. On the other hand, we soon learn, that what we perceived as "Earth" is actually a world called "Stark" and it has a twin world named Arcadia that does not follow the laws of science but instead is governed by chaotic magic. What's more, these two worlds are, in fact, Earth... or, at least, they were Earth twelve thousand years ago. Therefore, there is a connection called "Balance" between them which has its own eerie rules...



* Early western promotional materials for ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' presented the games as being set in this. Later the games established that they were indeed on Earth.

* From the ketchup stains on Creator/MontyOum's napkin, we got the world map for Remnant, the world of ''WebOriginal/{{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.
