** Smallville on the Pocket Universe Earth is protected by a force-field bubble that provides enough atmosphere for its residents, though it eventually fails as the Phantom Zone criminals destroy the field's generator.

** 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.

* Grayson, in the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' series, developed these as a means of controlling the planet's high concentration of heavy metals. Given their limited tech base, these domes weren't all that large until allying with Manticore introduced them to crystoplast and other modern super-strong materials.

Honor founds a company called Sky Domes, Ltd., and makes a fortune on this trope. [[spoiler:Several conservative steadholders try to sabotage one of her first domes, resulting in the death of several children (which horrifies even them, since children are sacred on Grayson). Fortunately, the sabotage is discovered, and all culprits are punished]].

* Creator/WaltDisney's [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original 1966 plan]] for EPCOT as a "community of tomorrow" is often imagined as something like this, but this isn't actually true. The rumor stemmed from confusion as to what exactly Disney's plans were. The city/apartment/hotel portion of EPCOT (aka the center) was indeed planned to be entirely enclosed, but it was meant to be more like a shopping mall, with a massive building housing everything as opposed to a (rather unfeasible) clear dome over the whole city. The other two portions of EPCOT (the "green belt" entertainment complex and the housing developments) were to be completely outdoors. This rumor led to the even more ridiculous rumor that Disney has an invisible dome over their entire Disney World property in Florida, that somehow keeps the rain out (which, as anyone who's visited there during hurricane season can attest, isn't true at all).

** Most of the pilot episode is set in a DomedCity in an AfterTheEnd Earth. The outside world is shown to be quite habitable however, with birdlife and drinkable water, so the implication is that the dome is [[TheWallAroundTheWorld now used as a further means of controlling the populace]].
