* ''Manga/{{BLAME}}'' takes place inside of one. This is hinted at throughout the story, but the biggest piece of evidence comes later on when the protagonist finds a chamber that is absolutely massive. Its measured diameter is the same as that of the planet ''Jupiter.''

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KIC_8462852 KIC 8462852]] is a star larger and brighter than our Sun located in Cygnus, that according to data from the ''Kepler'' telescope suffers irregular changes in brightness consistent with many small masses in close formation orbiting together the star. Among the hypotheses that can explain those variations is that the star is surrounded by a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyson_swarm Dyson swarm]][[note]]It's far more likely they've a natural cause, such as asteroids and/or comets passing in from of the star, variations of the star's luminosity, or even unrelate, interstellar, dust clouds passing in front of it.[[/note]]

** As of ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', the geth have finished it....just in time for [[spoiler: the quarian Migrant Fleet to roll in with a new weapon that disables geth, who then destroy the superstructure, which houses the majority of the geth "species" and utterly shattering their ability to process and analyze data. The geth revert to survival mode, and turn to the Reapers for code upgrades to protect them from immediate destruction by the quarians.]]

* In ''Literature/{{Aeon 14}}: The Last Bastion of Star City'', the eponymous settlement is a Dyson sphere built around a neutron star. The inhabitants have reportedly fended off a number of Orion Guard attacks by dumping matter into the star to produce a targeted X-ray burst.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'', Christopher Archlight (called simply V most of the time) uses a monster called Number 9: Dyson Sphere, which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. In fact, in terms of sheer size, it's no-doubt the biggest Duel Monster in the history of the franchise, being the size of a small star, and it seems to be one of the most powerful Numbers. [[spoiler: Despite this, in his duel against Kaito, Kaito manages to destroy it and win the duel.]]

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', [[MechanicalLifeforms Legion]] states that the end desire of the mainstream geth is to build a structure somewhat analogous to a Dyson Sphere and upload each one of their individual programs into it. The geth gain proportionally in intelligence as they mass together, with more bodies or "mobile platforms" available meaning faster processing and higher thought processes. If every geth were able to simultaneously occupy one such super-structure, [[MechanicalEvolution they would become nigh-omniscient]]. As of ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', they've finished it....just in time for [[spoiler: the quarian Migrant Fleet to roll in with a new weapon that disables geth, who then destroy the superstructure, which houses the majority of the geth "species" and utterly shattering their ability to process and analyze data.

** For VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda, the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon, Meridian, is one of these.

* The Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures novel ''The Also People'' has two.
** The main plot is set in a Dyson Sphere inhabited by a society which seems suspiciously similar to Iain M. Banks's Culture[[note]]And by "suspiciously similar" we mean the dedication is "They say talent borrows and genius steals - [[LawyerFriendlyCameo we got it off the back of a truck with no questions asked]]!" [[/note]] and who have orbited a planet inside it. As a mark of the dwellers sense of humour the planet is called Whynot and is home to a massive supercomputer named God.
