Dumps and junkyards are a common setting for fights, club houses, secret meetings, and the various other fantastic situations fictional characters get themselves into. There's something about dumps-- everything there is dirty, old, worn out, broken. Symbolically, it's a place of decay; pragmatically, there's lots of junk to play with, and it can be broken [[StuffBlowingUp or blown up]] without having to worry about property damage.

Added DiffLines:

* The go-to location for both the Mondo TV and webseries of ''Toys/TheTrashPack'' is Trash Town, a large dump. While the Mondo TV series is surprisingly organized (with robotic sorters that put waste in each respective category), the webseries version is gross and sloppy, just like the original aspect of the toyline.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Obsidian}}'': The Conductor shows you its dream world, which starts in a junkyard like this. But, as surreal as everything else in the game is, it also has unusual features: like a giant metal hand containing a flying machine, a radio that makes you levitate, three "moons" based on elements that the Conductor was to study in this world, and a massive "Frame in the Sky".

* Also the base of the ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats''- though not by choice, they were previously Enforcers, but got [[ReassignedToAntarctica shunted]] here after an incident- see their page for more details. But they managed to take advantage of this to build and keep hidden all their crime-fighting equipment (yes, including their [[CollPlane fighter jet]]).
