* Aokigahara Forest in ''Film/TheForest2016''. It's a very beautiful forest, however, its filled top to bottom with the restless dead forms of people who died there (IRL, it's a popular place to commit suicide in Japan).

** ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', on the other hand, has a curious subversion: the Hill of the Slain, a gigantic pile of the bodies of the elves and men who were killed in the battle of Nirnaeth Arnoediad, where [[BigBad Morgoth]] managed to [[CurbStompBattle utterly crush]] his enemies and ensured his eventual takeover of the whole of Beleriand. While the surrounding plains were reduced to a poison-choked wasteland, the hill itself became the only verdant place for miles.



* "Battle of Bones" area in ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'', named after an event that changed it forever. Due to drought and expanding Anauroch desert, a lot of goblinoids (more than a quarter million ''combatants'') had to migrate, humans and allies (more than half of that) were determined to stop them in a convenient pass and much slaughter ensued.

* The ''Franchise/GearsOfWar'' series has Char "The Ultimate Sin of the COG", the area where the [[KillSat Hammer of Dawn]] was used on the Locust to halt their attacks, roughly '''75%''' of Sera. In a disturbing mirror of Pompeii, there are ashen remain of every man, woman and child who were unable to reach the safe zone.
* ''Franchise/DeadSpace'' uses this as its primary setting, aboard the ''Ishimura.'' While an artificial environment, a good bit of the ship seems to have "gone wrong," with most of the safeguards on dangerous areas disabled and the whole ship being a great deal more of a death trap than usual. Also, you know, the roving horde of space zombies that now call the place home.

* Aokigahara forest at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan is one of the countrys largest suicide spots. There's even a gate on it with the number of Japan's version of the Suicide Hotline, and forest wardens often have to oust campers who are on the fence about going through with it. The forest is strung with survey tape, which people bring along as a lifeline in case they change their minds.

* In ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', this is often the fate of a planet that gets glassed by the Covenant; in ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', we can see this process happen live as the Covenant glass New Alexandria. Post-war, the people who work to restored glassed worlds often feel unnerved by the fact that the "glass" they're clearing is partly made up of people killed during the glassing.

* In ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' before you encounter ''The Flood'' you'll come across areas filled with ravaged covenant corpses.
** New Alexandria was basically this in ''VideoGame/HaloReach''.

* The Dead Marshes in ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'', a foul bog stretching miles across Middle Earth filled with corpses from the first war with [[BigBad Sauron]]. [[OurSpiritsAreDifferent Spirits]] of the men, elves, and orcs that were buried there try to lure travelers into the marshes to add to the body count. Tolkien scholars speculate that the terrain was inspired by the author's experiences in the waterlogged trenches of UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne.
