** Even if they were built on Earth or in Earth-orbit, they wouldn't be that expensive. Some NASA engineers have proposed inflatable habitats as cheap (relatively speaking) space habitats. This really wouldn't be that different.

This really wouldn't be that different. Venusian acids and toxins could also be exported off world, the profits of which could be used recoup colonization costs to investors back on the Earth.

One thing's for sure, though: If you've got a Floating Continent, it's [[LawOfConservationOfDetail significant]]. There's no chance that it's just some random village. Even if it's not TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon, something important is definitely going to happen there. These places tend to have a higher-than-normal failure rate as a result of this, often becoming more of a [[ColonyDrop Falling Continent]].

* The Animarium in ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce''. This thing might as well have a yo-yo string on it during the course of the series, as it went up into the sky, crashed back down, and went back up again... of course, if Saban and Disney had managed to work things out, it would have managed to come back down for the next team-up episode...

** Another example is [[GratuitousFrench Merveille]], a group of islands from ''Anime/OnePieceFilmStrongWorld''. The islands float in the air because of the BigBad's Devil Fruit power.

Added DiffLines:

* Towards the end of ''Cornerstone'', another LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} ''Minecraft'' series, the titular base is less of a floating island and more of a small city in the sky. This happens in part after LetsPlay/HatFilms expand the island significantly, setting precedents for the others to do the same.

* Nearly all the battlegrounds in ''SuperSmashBros.'' are Floating Continents. The stage editor in ''Brawl'' doesn't even allow anything else. Also, there's an actual Floating Continent in The Subspace Emissary, as well as the labyrinth in the 3DS iteration's "Smash Run" mode.
