* The world of GaiaOnline features the Otami Ruins, where the player must go to [[spoiler:gain the ability to breathe water, allowing them to access the whirlpool leading to the final dungeon]]. In a twist, the main danger of this area doesn't come from the wildlife (which is merely decoration), nor even the natives, but [[EverythingTryingToKillYou the artifacts that are coming to life and attacking everyone]]. Even the enemies that look human turn out to be just animated fetishes.

** Yoshi's Island is depicted this way in most incarnations (''[[SuperMarioBros Super Mario World]]'', ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'', ''VideoGame/PaperMario'', etc.) The only exception is ''[[VideoGame/YoshisIsland Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island]]'', where the eponymous island is the entire game world, and therefore has a wider range of environs (one of them being indeed Jungle Japes, namely World 3). ''VideoGame/YoshisWoollyWorld'' has World 4.
