* In ''Literature/{{Below}}'', a huge underground network of abandoned cities lures in adventurers seeking gold and glory. The book follows a quest for a late wizard's famous treasure, complicated by [[CooperationGambit internal strife]] and the little matter of the [[TreasureMap map]] being fake.

* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' eventually added a few as late-game content. While they all contain useful treasure such as crafting materials, armor and weapons and enchanted items once you get past their monsters and/or traps, the actual and often unique building materials that make them up are arguably just as much of a draw, as ''Minecraft'' is at its core a game a game focused around building things.

* The core gameplay of ''Videogame/{{Starcrawlers}}'' involves this. Though considering the sci-fi CyberPunk nature of the game, the dungeons often consist of corporate offices, labs, spacecraft, and factories, but more traditional mines are an area that can be explored, and most of the story missions involving the ''Stella Marin'' are pure dungeon-crawling through the guts of the abandoned ship.

* ''Literature/TheWanderingInn'':As expected for an RPG-Mechanics Verse. A dungeon discovered beneath Liscor kicks off a major part of the plot.

* ''VideoGame/{{Wizardry}}'' came out in 1981. But Richard Garriot (of ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'') released ''Akalabeth'' in 1979. The game name comes from part of ''Literature/TheSilmarillion''; such "homages" were common with Garriot in his early games. Of course, ''Dungeons and Dragons'' came out in 1974...around the same time "Dungeon" was a popular game on mainframe computers.

* ''Anime/TheTowerOfDruaga'' is an anime based off the [[VideoGame/TheTowerOfDruaga [=NES=] game of the same name]]. Therefore it lives and breaths the trope to the T. Adventures challenge the titular tower in search of treasure and glory. Should anyone ever manage to reach the top and face Druaga it would be a feat not accomplished since the king (the character from the game).

* In ''VideoGame/ShopHeroes'', players don't actually ''do'' the dungeon-crawling instead, they dispatch parties of heroes to do it. There are a number of different quests, of varying difficulties. Each quest has a particular rare resource associated with it, which players can use to make better equipment for the dungeon-crawlers.
