* ''PowerRangers'', of all things, has this in spades. Earth might be occupied by a revolving door of Power Ranger teams to keep it safe, but aside from the Aquitian Rangers and a few scattered allies, the rest of the universe is undefended. Frequent mention is made of villains destroying countless planets, or even entire galaxies, which puts the off-screen death toll at a number that humans can't even comprehend. These mentions are often just used to make a villain seem more intimidating, but they paint an extremely bleak picture of the rest of the cosmos.
* ''Series/ThePrisoner''. Ohhhh boy. To put the setting simply, it's a panoptic prison disguised as a seaside resort.

* The Nagasaki of the years prior to the Meiji Restoration is portrayed as this in ''[[VisualNovel/ShallWeDateNinjaShadow Shall We Date?: Ninja Shadow]]''. The city itself is bursting with riches, businesses and entertainment, but the BigBad Suetsugu and his influence have corrupted the merchant guilds and ther'es a lot of crime, illegal trade and slavery under the facade. It's so bad that the VigilanteMan group the PlayerCharacter joins (as a SweetPollyOliver) was specifically formed to deal with such horrible things.

* ''Fanfic/ChrysalisVisitsTheHague'' is all about Queen Chrysalis being indicted for ''war crimes'' in front of the RealLife International Criminal Court, while the B-plot thematicises the Equestrian kingdom's efforts to stomp out the Changelings once and for all in her absence. The story soon starts dropping hints that a good portion of the Equestrian society has been erected on a hotbed of horrific [[HoldYourHippogriffs crimes against sapiency]], with allusions being made to - among other things - UsefulNotes/TheYugoslavWars. Needless to say, it gets a ''bit'' dark and cynical at points.

* ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'' features this in spades when players visit the Fear Nothing Foundation's headquarters in Kaidan: a brightly-coloured social club and counselling centre, it offers therapy for people who want to overcome the fears they believe have defined their lives. More specifically, it provides troubled children with sympathetic carers, isolated outcasts with friends, and concerned parents with a place where their kids can be educated in a supportive atmosphere. For good measure, there's movie nights and free Bingo Cola whenever you want it. Unfortunately, the Fear Nothing Foundation is actually an ApocalypseCult with a heavy emphasis on the destruction of individuality: anyone enrolled there is going to be brainwashed into dismantling their own personalities and devoting the rest of their lives to serving [[spoiler: the [[EldritchAbomination Dreaming Ones]].]] Worst of all, by the time you pay their headquarters a visit [[spoiler: the cult have all committed mass-suicide to consecrate their victory of having a [[FantasticNuke Filth-bomb]] detonated on the Tokyo subways.]]

** ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' is a bit more overt about the crapsack nature of the world. Sure, Mira is full of gorgeous views, but Earth has been destroyed, humanity is on the brink of extinction on a planet filled with hostile monsters, and some of same aliens who destroyed the earth in the first place have come to finish the job.

Sure, Mira is full of gorgeous views, but Earth has been destroyed, humanity is on the brink of extinction on a planet filled with hostile monsters, and some of same aliens who destroyed the earth in the first place have come to finish the job. It's most noticeable with the citizens of New Los Angeles: when you first arrive, everyone seems friendly, cooperative, hopeful, and disagreements are minor. It's only later in the game that the ugliness of humanity begins to come out, as you encounter humans engaged in "[[FantasticRacism ethnic cleansing]]", murder, terrorism, and even ''human trafficking''.
