* 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.

* The city of Amity Park in the TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' Movie "The Ultimate Enemy", where it has been domed to protect it from ghosts attacks. (Specifically from Dark Danny). [[spoiler:There's also the implication that the rest of the world has been razed by Dark Danny.]]

Features seem to include letting everyone on the outside go to hell, being a paranoid CityInABottle, and ending up as a [[DoomedHometown doomed]] [[{{Pun}} domed hometown]].

Fairly traditional for [[UnderwaterCity underwater cities]] or space colonies in SF. An UndergroundCity may or may not have one holding up the roof and/or simulating a sky.

{{Subtrope}} of WallAroundTheWorld.

Not to be confused with a DoomedHometown.

* 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).
