* ''VideoGame/IslandWars'' features tiny islands with a rotating cannon and few palm trees. Said palm trees act as your VideoGameLives, and your job in [[CoOpMultiplayer Invasion Mode]] is to defend said trees with your cannon. In the VS mode, one player uses a plane to attack their opponent's palm trees.

* Played completely straight and not for comedy in the Creator/StephenKing story ''Survivor Type'', where a sociopathic surgeon is stranded on a Far Side island with no supplies other than some water and a large amount of heroin he had been smuggling. A self described "survivor type", he tries to keep himself alive first by catching seagulls, and after accidently breaking his foot, cannibalising parts of his own body.

* One of these showed up on ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad''. Originally it was a quite spacious desert island with many luxuries installed, until a tidal wave submerged something like 95% of the island underwater. Stan and Roger survive by eating mostly seagulls. They attempt to escape with a raft made from seagull carcasses which immediatly sinks, but then discover that Rogers body is bouyant enough to function as a makeshift flotation device.

* A viewer of ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' once asked Strong Bad what it would be like if he and Homestar were stranded on such an island. Strong Bad first mentioned the [[MeatOVision usual tropes]] for such a situation, but figured the reality would actually be more dull and unpleasant. In another episode, we see a flashback of him being saved by The Paper from a sinking version of one.

* Unsurprisingly, in the ''[[TabletopGame/{{Pokemon}} Pokémon Trading Card Game]]'' the card known as "[[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Castaway_(EX_Crystal_Guardians_72) Castaway]]" depicts a man on such an island, although said island is just off the coast of a larger one. The illustration hints that he has not been able to get back to the larger island.

* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'': Jack and Elizabeth are stranded on an island that looks like this, but is quite a bit larger.
** It also wasn't always deserted; rumrunners used it as a secret cache before the British navy cracked down on them.
** However, in the third film one of these islands (sans the palm tree) is used as a quick meeting place for the heroes and villains to negotiate.

* While ''Literature/TheMysteriousIsland'' isn't an example, containing everything needed for resourceful castaways to build a successful colony, it [[spoiler:becomes this after the volcano explodes, leaving all the humans stuck on a tiny rock barely big enough to hold all of them.]]

* The Muten-Roshi of ''Manga/DragonBall'' lives on such an island. It's big enough to hold his small house, but that's it. Said house also manages to have running water and electricity.
