** Tarnation from ''VideoGame/RedDeadRevolver'' was about to be recognized as a bona fide settlement by the local authorities until the town's sheriff was murdered. No other lawman was willing to replace him, so criminals and other evildoers quickly seized up the place and the original inhabitants fled.

* In ''Videogame/{{Myst V}}'' Myst Island became this after Atrus and Catherine abandoned it after ''{{VideoGame/Myst}}'' because it held too many memories. Nothing on the island works anymore, and even flipping one of the switches causes it to break. The imaging room is inaccessible, and there are no linking books or journals to be seen. [[spoiler:If you visit the age of Myst at all in this game, Eshar will leave you stranded here, which also makes this [[TheAlcatraz The Alcatraz.]] Don't count on Yeesha coming to rescue you either, since she wrote in one of her journals that she will never return.]]

* Chamberlin, Maine in ''Literature/{{Carrie}}'' becomes one shortly after the title character's rampage through town, wherein more than 200 students at the high school are burned to death when trapped inside the building on prom night, the result of Carrie exacting telekinetic revenge for years of being bullied (by a small group of students) and nothing being done about it; more people are killed as she spreads her fury throughout the town. In the aftermath, the town is so deeply consumed by grief that most of the residents leave town as the town's entire industrial base also closes as most of their workers leave and their inability to recruit new workers.

* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'', the city of Lejna used to be Nubrevna's main port, but ever since [[WalkingWasteland Poisonwitches]] turned the entire south of the country into a PollutedWasteland, it's been abandoned, as people prefer to swim further upriver to the non-poisonous capital of Lovats. These days, the only people to stop in Lejna are those who wish to slip under the Nubrevnans' radar for one reason or another.

The [[https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Ghost_towns Wikivoyage article]] has a list and usually also gives the causes why a place became a ghost town - none of them having to do with ghosts.
