** Downplayed in later games such as ''VideoGame/ZeusMasterOfOlympus'' and ''VideoGame/EmperorRiseOfTheMiddleKingdom'', where recruitment is now automatic- mining complexes and factories can churn out ores and finished goods by the cartload without a single house in the vicinity. The downside is that housing now requires much prettier surroundings to evolve.
** ''Emperor'' adds a new twist: the Feng Shui mechanic determines the city's overall harmony (placing a water-attuned building in the desert will lower harmony), which in turn determines city happiness and how efficient the sacrifices to gods are (requiring greater quantities for lower results with bad harmony).

A protagonist might try to help the locals escape from living terribly here, but more often it simply serves as another backdrop in a CrapsackWorld or a more technologically advanced [[TheEmpire Empire]], where there is little the protagonists can do but to move on forwards in their adventure. If the IndustrialGhetto is a recurring setting in the story, it's likely the protagonist is an AntiHero who will commit wrongdoings to get farther ahead than the rest, even if it's only going to be slightly better for them.

* Arguably the backdrop mining city in ''Anime/CastleInTheSky''. 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.

* In ''Anime/PrincessPrincipal'', London is one. The sky is permanently hazy and smoggy, glowing orange at night; homeless litter the streets, and the city itself is a vast sprawl. Children as young as 6 are out working in factories.

* "Dirty Old Town", written by Ewan [=MacColl=] about his native Manchester, and covered by many artists including Dubliners and The Pogues. Many covers of the song drop the lone reference to Salford, changing it instead to "sulphured" or "smoky".

* New Coventry from ''VideoGame/Bully''. A dilapidated, impoverished urban area located near the Blue Sky Industrial Park, it's the turf of the Greasers (1950's style throwbacks seemingly inspired by ''{{Literature}}/TheOutsiders'') and the Townies (Non-Bullworth Academy students that bear a grudge against the school and its faculty).

* The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' expansion pack ''The Pitt'' has these, in addition to the NightmarishFactory that is the Mill. While The Pitt, post-War '''Pitt'''sburg, had survived a large portion of the nuclear radiation partially due to the choking smog in the clouds and lack of nearby nuclear strikesbut mutagens and radiation still leeched into the ground and water. The Monongahela River and it's shores are now extremely radioactive and quickly kill anyone foolish to try to swim out.
