A setting that represents or is made of a concept/thing. It may be [[GeniusLoci sentient]], in which case it may also have an avatar running around. {{Elemental Embodiment}}s are likely to have come from this place.

Compare ElementalNation, for when it's a society rather than a physical place that embodies and element or concept, which may still be an example. Compare and contrast AnthropomorphicPersonification, for when it's a person rather than a place.

They are likely to have come from in sets, with multiple worlds for various elements or concepts. The four classical elements are the likeliest to get such planes, but this place.

is by no means an exclusive rule.

* In ''WorldOfWarcraft'' the elemental lords who served the Old Gods would be constantly reborn so the Titans chose to seal them into the Elemental Plane, which in turn was split into four regions. They played a major role in ''Cataclysm''.

* ''EverQuest'' has a bunch of these. Indeed, an entire expansion is called "The Planes of Power", and contains something like 15 different planes. And there are more planes from other expansions.

* The ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' episode "Room With A Moose" has two consecutive examples of this trope, with Zim showing Dib other places he could have used the wormhole to send him. The first is "a dimension of pure itching" which is only shown as a green mist, Zim [[TakeOurWordForIt assuring]] Dib "that stuff's really itchy", while the second is "[[ToiletHumor a dimension of pure dooky]]" which isn't shown at all, only Dib's [[TakeOurWordForIt horrified reaction visible]].
