* The dome over Springfield in the quote from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie'' is a slight reversal. After Springfield has a major environmental disaster [[ItMakesSenseInContext involving pig crap]], it's there [[QuarantineWithExtremePrejudice to let the town go to hell and spare the outside world.]]

* Creator/WaltDisney's [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original 1966 plan]] for EPCOT as a "community of tomorrow" was said to have featured something like this, but that rumor stemmed from confusion as to what exactly Disney's plans were. The city/apartment/hotel portion of EPCOT (aka the center) was to be entirely enclosed, but more in the "shopping mall" sense of a massive building housing everything as opposed to a (rather unfeasible) clear dome over the whole thing. 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).

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Legion'' it's revealed that the ancient Night Elf city of Suramar survived the [[WorldSundering Sundering]] due to the Grand Magistrix erecting a domed energy shield. The shield was left intact for the following 10,000 years and only dropped recently when the Legion made it clear the Nightborne must do so and accept Legion rule or face annihilation.
