** "Skartaris"[[note]]Named after the volcano through which Creator/JulesVerne's adventurers made their ''Journey to the Center of the Earth''[[/note]] (a world located within the hollow Earth, accessible through a portal in the Arctic wilderness), which is the setting of Mike Grell's ''ComicBook/TheWarlord'' (though other DC Universe characters would visit there from time to time as well). An episode of ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' is set there. It was later {{retcon}}ned into being AnotherDimension.
** Themyscira, also known as Paradise Island, home to Wonder Woman and the Amazons. Later retconned into being able to travel around the world and through time itself.
** Dinosaur Island, the setting for ''The War That Time Forgot'' series. In ''[[ComicBook/DCTheNewFrontier New Frontier]]'', Dinosaur Island turns out to be [[spoiler:an ancient and malevolent organism called the Centre]].

*** Not much of a retcon- see Wonder Woman's [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] adventures.

* ''Return to Mysterious Island'' and its sequal play this fairly straight, the second game moreso than the first.

** ''The Lost Continent'' (originally known as ''Beyond Thirty'') - the titular continent is Europe, in an AlternateHistory in which WorldWarI never ended because eventually no organized government was left to make peace. The United States never entered the war, and in fact made laws forbidding any ship to cross certain lines of longitude (hence the original title).

Added DiffLines:

* Atlantis from "The Atlantis Enigma" in BlakeAndMortimer. An empire created before recorded history, it was destroyed (along with much of the Earth's surface) by a falling meteor and the ensuing tidal waves; the survivors eventually build a new empire in vast underground caverns under the Atlantic, which is what Blake and Mortimer discover. They've progressed to the point of becoming an AdvancedAncientAcropolis, mastering anti-gravity technology, laser weaponry, and space travel, among other things.

* Neverland, from J.M. Barrie's ''Literature/PeterPan''.

to:

* Neverland, from J.M. Barrie's ''Literature/PeterPan''. Subverted in that it's a world created by the dreams and stories of children, so only they can really visit it.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' has three unexplored continents on Gaia, with only the Mist Continent being densely populated and civilised. As airships can't run without mist, and there's none on the other continents, travel to them has been rare. The Outer Continent mainly had its population wiped out in a disaster some ten years previously. The Forgotten and Lost Continents meanwhile have no settlements and are home to a few {{Eldritch Location}}s.

Two frequent lost worlds are the DesertedIsland and (in older works) MysteriousAntarctica. Often a key element in a JungleOpera. May contain a CityOfGold. Overlaps with HollowWorld, with the internal and external surfaces loosing knowledge of eachother.
