* 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.

* Played completely straight and not for comedy in the 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.

A comedic DesertedIsland[[note]]And also, by loose definition, a desert island[[/note]] that is circular with a radius of two metres or so and a single palm, coconut or pineapple tree in the centre. Usually has a single inhabitant. If there's more than one, they'll either be constantly arguing or one will be slowly driving the other insane in a comedic manner (MeatOVision may also occur). Often features a MessageInABottle.

MessageInABottle. If the stranded are ''really'' unlucky, there will be a [[ThreateningShark pack of sharks]] circling the island.

** ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSpongebobMovieSpongeOutOfWater Sponge Out Of Water]]'' revealed that the island is actually much bigger than it looks. It has a dense jungle that's dwarfed by three giant palm trees.

* At the end of ''102Dalmatians:PuppiesToTheRescue'', Horace, Jasper and LePelt hide in a crate about to be shipped out, in an attempt to ditch Cruella DeVil. They end up on an island just like this...for some unexplained reason.

* 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.
