* ''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.

* Dr. Suzuki in ''TransformersCybertron'' believes the world is hollow, with a hole at the North Pole leading to the inside. She's wrong, but there is a big massive cavern full of ancient Decepticons. * This is a main plot point in ''SpiderRiders''. Hunter finds the Inner-World in the very first episode.

* The indie 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?

* The plane of Mirrodin (formerly [[spoiler:Argentum]]) in ''MagicTheGathering'' is hollow, and mostly metallic. There are five channels, called lacuna, through which one of the planes five suns emerged from the mana core. There are five lacunae, one for each color of mana, and one for each of Mirrodin's five suns.

* In ''TheSalvationWar'', Heaven and Hell are both Hollow Worlds. This is partly due to the linguistic convention of saying that one is "on" earth but "in" hell or heaven. They have AlienGeometries in other ways as well; traveling in what appears to be a straight line on them results in a curved path.

* In TheDCU, [[TheWarlord Skartaris]] was originally inside a Hollow Earth. A later {{Retcon}} changed it into an alternate dimension that was accessed through gates at the Earth's poles.
