* ''EmbricOfWulfhammersCastle'': Our heroine can get to an empty treasure chest before the government official responsible for refilling them. She's outraged by this lapse in standards.

* ''{{Recettear}}'': [[spoiler:A race of golems is in charge of refilling treasure chests, distributing monsters and changing the pathways.]] * ''PlanescapeTorment'' has the Modron maze - a construction intentionally built to be a dungeon to crawl. It contains monsters that acknowledge they lack a motive for being there, and such items as "A Clue!". And there are [[StarfishAliens Modron]] who maintain the dungeon. Modrons are beings of pure Law, from a plane that is all mechanical. They are living robots and can't go outside their programming. The dungeon is an attempt to figure out why adventurers constantly risk their lives to explore dungeons, but they haven't quite figured it out.

* ''{{Nodwick}}'' explored this several times. At one point the heroes explore a dungeon that's been revamped and put under new management, complete with brochures touting it like one would promote a beach resort. It turns out [[spoiler:the dungeon's "managers" are professional kidnappers who are hired to abduct embarrassing nobility and use transformation and enraging magics to turn their victims into monsters, then letting adventurers dispose of them]]. Later on, the heroes end up owning their own dungeon and end up facing foreclosure because they're not keeping it up to community standards of sufficient vileness, given their "community" consists of other dungeons with names like "AAAIIIEEE!" that [[IncorruptiblePurePureness Piffany]] describes as being worse than a kitten cannery.

* It's not ''intended'' as one of these, but there was once a bit of a fad among ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' players who are also tabletop gamers for using their own fortresses as the map for a DungeonCrawl, often with a Mines of Moria-style DugTooDeep plot. Particularly sadistic dungeon masters have been known to use LetsPlay/{{Boatmurdered}}.

[[AC:Anime and Manga]] * ''LightNovel/IsItWrongToTryToPickUpGirlsInADungeon'', an RPGMechanicsVerse light novel about DungeonCrawling, has a mechanism to make crawlers cleaning up after themselves. All monsters in the Dungeon contains a magic stone that acts as the major {{plunder}} in this universe, and removing this stone causes the body to disappear (sans any RandomDrop). As a result crawlers have a financial incentive to clean up themselves, or through the use of [[NonPlayerCompanion Supporters]].

** The ''TombOfHorrors'' has a host of fiends bound to it and forced to repair any damage done and clean up whatever is left of the latest adventurers.

** There is also a SpiritualSuccessor to DK known simply as ''Dungeons'' which plays with the same themes, while also having to ''satisfy'' the adventurers with their dungeoneering experience before you kill them and harvest their souls (which are richer for being more fulfilled by the experience).

* ''VideoGame/DragonFable'' has a starter level quest that lampshades this. You meet Robina, who takes you to distribute gold on wild animals for adventurer purposes. Of course, the animals don't see any reason to carry gold, so they need to be knocked unconscious first...

* ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'' adventure ''Orcbusters''. The wizard's dungeon has a "Wandering Monster Ready Room", where wandering monsters wait until it's time for them to go out and wander around the dungeon. This is a parody of the "wandering monster" tables in early editions of ''DungeonsAndDragons''.
