* Subverted in ''Literature/RuinedCity'' by Creator/NevilShute; the eponymous city ''used'' to fit the "heavily polluted" part of this trope and wasn't an especially attractive living environment by many standards, but the workers were unionised and the pay and conditions were fairly good. It only became a true ghetto when the Great Depression kicked in and the shipyard went out of business. The protagonist actually notes the lack of pollution, and describes the place as being "clean as a washed corpse".

* Seattle's Georgetown and South Park neighborhoods are both situated along the highly polluted Duwamish River waterfront, have poor road accessibility due to being surrounded by freeways and industrial zonage, especially the latter, with its main access route being an aging drawbridge that had to be closed from 2010 to 2014, and have notoriously high crime and poverty rates.

* ''Warhammer40K'' has these extended to entire ''planets'' in the form of Forge Worlds, EternalEngine-like factories using mostly backbreaking manual labor to produce an uninterrupted supply of weapons, tanks and armor for the Imperium's trillions-strong armies.

to:

* In the ''VideoGame/CityBuildingSeries'' industrial buildings drastically lower the aesthetics of the surrounding land. Because housing evolution factors in aesthetics, a nearby industrial building can keep houses from advancing beyond the simplest, and ugliest, stages.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Pharaoh}}'' building these is a necessary evil on some maps. Buildings only recruit within a limited range so isolated industrial areas need a dedicated housing block to recruit from. Due to these locations have low desirability and usually a lack of water, these blocks usually remain crude mud huts.

* Arguably the backdrop mining city in LaputaCastleInTheSky. The place is not exactly polluted, but people do live in squalor and there's not much more than the mining industry around. WordOfGod mentions it's inspired by Welsh mining towns.

* ''VideoGame/SpaceQuest6'' has a planet called Polysorbate LX, which plays this trope UpToEleven: It's applied to the whole planet and described as the most polluted planet in the galaxy.
