** The ''Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition'' game supplement ''Player's Option: Heroes of the Feywild'', describes this plane and its inhabitants in detail. One of the first things the book says about the Feywild is that it is "sometimes called the land of Faerie." The Feywild is essentially ruled by the Archfey, a group of powerful eladrin who make up the Court of Stars. The nobles of the Feywild are Sidhe Lords. The Unseelie Fey are always trying to subvert the the purposes of the Archfey.

* Faerieland from ''{{Neopets}}''. Originally, Faerieland was located high up in the clouds, but since being subjected to a ColonyDrop it's become a forest realm.

* {{Runescape}}'s Lost City of Zanaris certainly qualifies. Located on Gielinor's moon, the place is a hub of sorts for portals to other realms and provides the Fairy Ring Network for players. In addition to the densely packed forests, bluish grass and giant mushrooms, Zanaris hosts a number of oddities such as extremely intelligent barnyard animals and bands of frogs or choirs that will randomly show up next to the player. Players themselves are prone to sudden outbreaks of dancing, or turning into pigs or chickens.

* The third and fourth books of WickedLovely are set predominantly in Faerie, in the 'otherworld' of the High Court, where time moves at only a 1/6 of the pace of Earth's and the Fae are ruled by the [[TheSpock logical and emotionless]] [[TheHighQueen Unchanging Queen]], Sorcha.
* Diana Wynne Jones has a typically Jones-y interpretation in ''Fire and Hemlock'': The Fairy Queen as a London socialite who eats the life and soul of a musician every nine years, after taking a short trip to Fairyland on a local train line.
* Creator/DianeDuane puts an interesting spin on Ferie in ''Stealing the Elf-King's Roses''. Here, it is called Alfheim and an AlternateUniverse version of earth, but not medieval at all. Actually, of all the seven known parallel universe earths, Alfheim is one of the two most technologically advanced ones next to Xaihon. It is ruled by a king, accessed by high-tech gating facilities and [[TheFairFolk no one really trusts the elves]], who are as open, transparent and welcoming of visitors as, say, North Korea. [[spoiler: Turns out, for good reason. When they allow some visitors, it eventually comes to light that they heavily employ {{Glamour}}s over whole cities (though they, in turn, have understandable reasons for their deception). Also, Alfheim is [[GeniusLoci somewhat sentient]], allows everyone, depending on their talent and lineage, to be [[RealityWarper Reality Warpers]] to varying extents (enabling the Glamour) and the king is a downright FisherKing. Plus AllMythsAreTrue applies for several of the parallel worlds, but particularily for Alfheim and Midgarth.]]
