* "Browntown" in ''VideoGame/TheAngryVideoGameNerdAdventures II: [=ASSimilation=] is a very large sewer where, apparently, the Nerd is swimming not through water but through ''raw'' shit! He also finds himself facing electric kelp like the TMNT game on NES.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' takes you into the Castelia City Sewers,complete with Grimer,Rattata and [[GoddamnBats Goddamn Zubats]]. At least if you find the small aboveground abandoned lot area, you get a shot at wild Eevee for the first time in history (not counting Gen IV's trophy garden).

* ''Film/{{Cyborg}}'' has a sewer scene where the water comes up to the characters' thighs. Try not to think about what could possibly be floating around in there it too much.

* ''Film/{{Cyborg}}'' has a sewer scene where the water comes up to the characters' thighs. Try thighs, and at one point an unconscious character has to bet set down in a place where her head is just barely above water. Just try not to think about what could possibly be floating around in there it too much.

* ''RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal'': The snot-like amoeboids are ''everywhere'', sometimes spawning right behind and in front of you at once, the camera is awkward and won't turn unless Ratchet does, certain passages are blocked until you approach them from the proper side, the tunnels all look the same while the crystal locations are initially hidden, and best of all? If you want to find all of them, you have to find a special piece of equipment later in the game to explore the second half of the area...which is as lengthy as the first half. The sewers are rarely part of the major plot, but only for level grinding.
* The first chapter in ''{{Gish}}'', called Sewers of Dross. However, this is one of the easiest chapters.

* The pipe levels in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry 3'' provided quite a bit of variation. "Dingy Drainpipe" was your standard "swim through the sewers" level, but "Demolition Drainpipe" and "Surf's Up" removed the water and combined the sewer levels with MinecartMadness, having you speed through the pipeline in a metal toboggan. "Low-G Labyrinth", another water-free level, added GravityScrew to a drainpipe level, while "Poisonous Pipeline" rather sadistically added the water back and [[InterfaceScrew reversed your left-right controls]].

* ''{{Summoner}}'' ([=PS2/PC/Mac=], Volition) has a semi-subversion…the sewer you have to enter in the big city is moderately well lit, plausibly plotted (most exits line up with the city above), and it's actually kind of fun as they're the size of the old Roman aqueducts. So what Goddamned monster do you find crawling in those tunnels? Bats? Rats? Giant bugs? no, GODDAMNED GOLEMS. And it's hella fun, as the topside fights with basic imperial soldiers and random encounters are the boring ones.

* Kero Sewers in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG''. Mario comes through here with Mallow in search of a star piece only to be flushed out and sent down the river.

** Slimy Spring Galaxy from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'' takes place inside a giant underwater cave. Despite the pressure on your OxygenMeter due to the lacking number of bubbles and coins, it's well-regarded as a really cool level, especially because of the bit of SceneryPorn at the end.

* ''{{Shantae}}'': the Dribble Fountain, which is some kind of aqueduct/sewer thing, is the very first dungeon.
