* {{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.

* Subverted in ''SevenSoldiers'', where "Frankenstein in Fairyland" reveals Fairyland and the Sidhe/Sheeda to be [[spoiler: the parasitic dregs of the human race from the BadFuture of One Billion A.D.; the YearOutsideHourInside effect is a side effect of being abducted by a race of time travelers.]]

* 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.]]

* The Underground depths of Mt. Ebott from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' definitely counts, which the [[NotUsingTheZWord "Monsters"]] were banished to live in from the rest of the world, and is filled to the brim with curiosities and oddities alike from their influence.

* Literature/{{Oz}}, from Creator/LFrankBaum's books, is another of the most famous and influential examples. The rule about what happens when you eat the food in a Fairyland has been suggested by fans as the reason Dorothy must keep returning to Oz on a regular basis, ultimately moving there, permanently.

* The Astral Plane in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' is a realm of existence generated by the subconscious beliefs of humanity, and is populated by supernatural creatures ranging from pixies to the demonic Godhand and various unnamed eldritch things. The layer of existence between the Astral Plane and the human world, where such creatures can manifest, is called the Interstice, and functions more like a traditional fairyland.

* ''ComicBook/IHateFairyland'' has the eponymous Fairyland. For some reason, humans can't age physically, but they can age mentally in Fairyland.
