* Originally Dinobot Island in ''TransformersAnimated'', to give the Dinobots somewhere to live away from civilization. By season 3 it's gotten rather crowded, now home to Meltdown's labs, Blackarachnia [[spoiler: until she teleported somewhere]], and [[spoiler: Scrapper. The other Constructicons are probably around somewhere too.]]

* The Galapagos Islands were never permanently settled by Pacific or South American peoples, and qualified as this trope until the 16th century. Today, some of the smaller isles have been declared off-limits to everyone except the occasional researcher, to protect their unique native species.

* The Galapagos Islands were never permanently settled by Pacific or South American peoples, and qualified as this trope until the 16th century. It is for this reason that they, unlike other islands such as Hawaii, New Zealand, and Madagascar, have kept all of their native wildlife up to the present day. Today, some of the smaller isles have been declared off-limits to everyone except the occasional researcher, to protect their unique native species.

*** Perhaps becoming less true with development however. Places where a living can be made, but it's HARD, are increasingly abandoned by the younger generation.

In past centuries such islands could be found in every ocean, but these days it takes loads of {{Phlebotinum}} to keep them hidden. In ScienceFiction, a deserted moon or planet makes an acceptable substitute. Leaving these [[ClosedCircle closed circles]] is often made difficult.

In past centuries such islands could be found in every ocean, but these days it takes loads of {{Phlebotinum}} to keep them hidden. Note, however, that even though in this day and age about any island you can set foot upon was probably already visited by a human being, that doesn't mean you'll find any signs of human presence left on it. There are absolutely tons of islands that hardly ever see anybody visit them for a variety of reasons: maybe they're just too far away from the nearest inhabited place, maybe there's just nothing interesting on them to find. In fact, the very name "deserted" implies that somebody must have been there to desert it in the first place. At any rate, while your chances of finding yourself on one of them are miniscule compared to, say, the 18th century sailors, it's still 100% possible and does happen every once in a while.

In ScienceFiction, a deserted moon or planet makes an acceptable substitute. Leaving these [[ClosedCircle closed circles]] is often made difficult.
