''Film/TheVillage'' appears to be set in a rural 19th century village. Beyond the woods surrounding the village, however, is present-day America; the village was founded by people who wanted to recreate 19th century society, and their children don't know what year it really is.

* Played with in a fascinating way in the original StarTrek series, where the Enterprise encounters multiple duplicates of Earth that had apparently been duplicated at specific points in history. (Probably involved the Q Continuum, but they never really made a point of establishing where they came from onscreen.)

* Played with in a fascinating way in the original StarTrek series, where the Enterprise encounters multiple duplicates of Earth that had apparently been duplicated at specific points in history. The specific case of the world of the Yangs and Kohms in "The Omega Glory" is mentioned below, but "Miri" and "Bread and Circuses" also feature similar planets. (Probably involved the Q Continuum, but they never really made a point of establishing where they came from onscreen.)

* In "Literature/MistbornTheOriginalTrilogy", by Creator/BrandonSanderson, it is revealed to be Earth in the third book when [[spoiler:Harmony is formed by the fusion of Ruin and Preservation, Harmony reveals that based upon his old knowledge of ancient religions, the planet has been misaligned and improperly placed. The planet is moved back into it's original position, undoing the destructive effects of being so close to the Sun, and the returning climate reveals that is was, indeed, Earth with its landmasses rearranged by the Lord Ruler.]]

* Quintet's ''Heaven And Earth'' series, which involves ''SoulBlazer'', ''IllusionOfGaia'', and ''Terranigma''. Although the first of those games doesn't explicitly claim to occur on Earth, it's a direct prequel to ''IllusionOfGaia'', which does (the ending reveals that Will's world eventually gave rise to modern civilization.) ''Terranigma'' is set long AfterTheEnd, but the player isn't clued into this until after the end of the first act.
** Of course, this all depends on you interpretation of the series. [[{{WMG}} Fan theories]] give rise to every possible scenario from alternate dimensions, TimeTravel, to some sort of bizarre "NewGamePlus"-inspired theory that claims that the efforts of all three games lead to "our Earth".

* Creator/{{Square|Enix}}soft loved to hint at this trope during their later SNES to early Playstation years. ''VideoGame/SecretOfMana'' has a scene late in the game when the heroes find recordings of their world from its AndManGrewProud days, before the Mana Beast destroyed civilization and brought about [[TheMagicComesBack the return of magic]]. The recordings include country music, an episode of Jeopardy, news channel debates on the dangers of [[MagicFromTechnology mana energy]], and then a final broadcast of the Mana Beast attacking a city and then turning on the news crew that's filming the destruction. The implication is that the world of ''Secret of Mana'' is really Earth's distant future.

Almost invariably this involves a character who was sure he was anywhere but Earth discovering the AwfulTruth.

* Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''[[Literature/{{Foundation}} The Stars Like Dust]]'' is a veritable cornucopia. About half the chapters end with the reader's sudden discovery that the story's location is not what it seemed. Contains examples of "It Was Earth All Along", "It Was The Homeworld All Along", and "After The End".

* Most of the plot in ''SigmaStarSaga'' revolves around searching for a series of six planets which will ultimately lead to a DoomsdayDevice. [[spoiler: Earth is the "seventh" planet, which had already been destroyed by said device.]]
