* One ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' sketch opens with a fake advertisement touting putting a dome over your house as the next big thing in home security... only for EddieMurphy to interrupt and run down [[DeconstructedTrope every disadvantage of such a practice]].

* [[LoisMcMasterBujold Bujold's]] ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'':
** The books features two fairly important planets whose entire population is contained by these due to in-progress {{terraform}}ing; Beta Colony (the homeworld of Miles Vorkosigan's mother), and Komarr (annexed by Barrayar a generation ago lest it gets bribed or strongarmed into permitting ''another'' invasion). The technological and social implications are rather well discussed.

Added DiffLines:

** Its SpiritualSuccessor ''VideoGame/CivilizationBeyondEarth'' has plausibly designed cities that look like the real-world harsh-environment bases, but domes can be built to expand habitation, thereby increasing the health of the city. They also provide culture bonuses, presumably because everyone's inspired by how cool they are.
