* A collection of floating islands make up civilization's last refuge in ''LightNovel/SukaSuka''. Everything below them is an ashen wasteland ruled inhabited by the creatures that destroyed all life on the surface.

* ''VideoGame/Skylanders'': The entire series takes place on the floating realm of Skylands. There have apparently been attempts to find the bottom but they've either ended in failure or the explorer never came back.

* The Neo Nation colonies of ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' are a really odd example - not only are they space colonies, but they actually seem to be gigantic hunks of Earth which lifted off the planet and floated into space. Keeping with the show's RefugeInAudacity, most of the colonies ([[CreatorProvincialism except Japan]]) are unusual shapes -- Neo America is a star, while Neo Mexico is a giant sombrero.

* Website/{{Fenspace}}: [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Unreal Estate]], chunks of land that have been handwaved to be mobile and occasionally spaceworthy, have a presence in the post-'Wave Solar System. There are so far two true floating islands in space: the Island, which was formerly a piece of Nigerian countryside, is the first piece of landscape to be made spaceworthy and doesn't have a dome or an atmosphere, requiring all of its buildings to be vacuum-sealed; and Grover's Corners, formerly a chunk of West Virginia farmland, the largest piece of Unreal Estate in space, and the only craft in Fenspace with a proper [[Literature/CitiesInFlight Spindizzy Drive]].

** Lore indicates the Aviansie homeworld, Abbinah, is a series of similar floating continents over an uninhabitable core. The quest to actually go there ("Rite of Passage") has been in DevelopmentHell for years.

* ''VideoGame/NoMansSky'' has planets with these, though they're rare. Two of the planets shown in the trailers (specifically, New Arion from the "Infinite Worlds" Trailer and Soleth Prime from the E3 Gameplay trailer, as well as "A Night Under No Man's Sky" at PSX) have floating continents and feature these alongside more conventional landmasses, though to different degrees from each other (New Arion is completely comprised of these while Soleth Prime simply has rocks that float a few meters above the planetary surface); player can also find similar planets due to how planet generation is handled.
