* ''Anime/{{Endride}}'' is set in Endora, a fantasy kingdom inside a hollow Earth. There is a large green crystal floating in the center that serves as their sun. And somehow there is an open green sky there.

* The indie ''TabletopGame/HollowEarthExpedition'' is all about this, using the fluidity of the pulp genre to meld the hollow earth with Thule, Atlantis, and prehistoric times, and any sort of lost civilization, and the whole thing is discovered on the cusp of WorldWarII. Hey, how else are you going to feed Nazis to dinosaurs?

* In ''AHDotComTheSeries'', a Hollow Earth appears that combines [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] and [[{{Homage}} homages]] to just about every Hollow Earth in fiction. It first appears in "Dinos and Nazis and Deroes, Oh My!" and, [[spoiler:in a TearJerker, is destroyed in "Harbingers"]].

* Creator/DavidIcke believe this is where the Nazi leadership escaped to. He also believes that the holes are enormous and that's why commercial planes never fly near the poles. (Planes frequently fly over the poles as a way to cut down on travel times. It's easier to fly to Russia from Canada by flying over the poles than going west.)

* ''Comicbook/AtomicRobo'' makes it very clear that the Earth is ''not'' hollow, because that would be scientifically impossible. However, there ''is'' an extensive planet-wide cave network populated by an alien silicon-based ecosystem, created when debris from [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theia_(planet) Theia]] was captured by Earth's gravity and sank into the crust billions of years ago. [[note]]An ''immortal magma worm'' was involved at some point. We don't really know how.[[/note]]

A sub-trope of WorldShapes and, in more modern works, an example of AllTheoriesAreTrue. Compare BeneathTheEarth, DysonSphere. When the inhabitants don't know they're in a hollow world, it may become CityInABottle.

Added DiffLines:

* The iconic example from ''Literature/PerryRhodan'' would be Horror, a hollow world in six distinct layers that at least from the protagonists' perspective seemed to serve primarily as a planet-sized ''trap'' for unauthorized users of the recently-discovered intergalactic [[TeleportersAndTransporters matter transmitter]] network connecting at least the Milky Way and the Andromeda Galaxy (plus some outliers) at the time. The "Mobys" from later in the same arc probably also qualify by virtue of being largely sleeping large-moon-sized anorganic ''[[GeniusLoci lifeforms]]'' whose insides were frequently colonized by opportunistic aliens.
