* The Dwemer ruins in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' are powered by geothermal energy and manned by complicated enchanted automations who mindlessly perform security and minor repairs on these forgotten cities. The Dwemer were also about to experiment with the power of a [[PoweredByAForsakenChild dead God]] when they were cast out of reality by it.

* The Dwemer ruins In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', the extinct [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] created all manner of these in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' are their [[AdvancedAncientAcropolis complex]] [[ElaborateUndergroundBase underground]] cities. Justified, as they were known to [[RealityWarper bend the laws of nature]] to [[RagnarokProofing make their creations last]], powered by their cities with [[{{Magitek}} magical enchantments]] and geothermal energy energy, and manned by complicated enchanted automations who mindlessly perform security created MechaMook centurions to guard and minor repairs on these forgotten repair their cities. The Dwemer were also about to experiment themselves [[RiddleForTheAges disappeared thousands of years ago]], apparently as the result of tampering with the power [[CosmicKeystone heart of a [[PoweredByAForsakenChild dead God]] when they were cast out god]]. Many of reality by it.these still-working "engines" can be seen in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' where Dwemer ruins are plentiful.

* The planet Cybertron in ''TransformersWarForCybertron'' is worth noting, since it is literally an ''entire game'' set inside, outside, and on top of a massive eternal engine. It even features a level ''inside another character who is himself an eternal engine''.

** One of the most overboard was from ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'': Cannon's Core, the {{Magitek}} innards of a space station built using modern robotics and ancient mysticism. The deeper the characters went, the more the mystic elements began to eclipse the mechanical ones. ''Adventure 2'' also has [[GravityScrew Crazy Gadget]], [[BlackoutBasement Lost Colony]] and even [[TropeNamers Eternal Engine itself]].

* In TimothyZahn's ''Spinneret'' humans stumble, by sheer chance, on a huge alien machine hidden inside a mountain, which has been [[RagnarokProofing dormant but active]] for millennia. It turns out to be a gigantic extruder, which absorbs any metal in and on the planet itself to make super-sticky string, originally destined [[spoiler:to shield a whole solar system from detection]]. It houses enormous amounts of machinery, not to mention an artificial environment for the original workers and at least one fully working spaceship.

** Frozen Factory from ''VideoGame/SonicLostWorld'' [[HailfirePeaks mixes this]] with SlippySlideyIceWorld, hence it's name. It appears to have been inspired from [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2 Metropolis Zone]].

** From the ''VideoGame/SonicAdvanceTrilogy'', there's Secret Base Zone, Cosmic Angel Zone, Hot Crater, Egg Utopia and Ocean Base (once again combining this with UnderTheSea). Also, Techno Base in ''Sonic Advance 2'' is an Eternal Engine set in {{Cyberspace}}.

* ''VideoGame/{{Inside}}'' has a very impressive one in the last third of the game. The engine itself isn't ever seen apart from shockwaves created by it that move through a gigantic hall and tear the main character apart unless hiding behind certain surfaces. It is unclear what it does or if it even does anything at all.

* The castle from ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has one. While it's main engine is shut off at the start of the comic, the castle is still running on some power. When the engine gets reignited, it is a gigantic room that [[spoiler: spreads underneath all of Mechanicsburg]]. Which is on fire.
