* 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.

* In the ''SpiderRiders'' franchise, a place aptly named the "Inner World" exists deep beneath the earth in a gigantic cavern filled with plants, an ocean and giant humanoid insects.

* The MarvelUniverse distills this trope into a place known as the "Savage Land." It is a tropical jungle ''in the middle of [[MysteriousAntarctica Antarctica]]'' filled with strange creatures, prehistoric beasts, warrior tribes, incredible civilizations and other great pulpy stuff.

* There are two such places in Steve Alten's ''Literature/{{Meg}}'' series. The first one is the Marianas Trench, which is where the titular Megalodons are found. Its [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]], as people already knew of its existence, it just contained a prehistoric creature or two. Playing it much more straight is the Panthalassa sea in the sequal, Hell's Aquarium. Its a primordial sea contained under a rock ceiling at the bottom of the pacific ocean, and is home to an abundance of ancient sea creatures which have formed a comfortable food chain.

* ''EVEOnline'' recently jumped on this trope with wormholes that open up into "Sleeper" space. Along with several other races they were thought to be extinct. WildMassGuessing ranges from time loops to returns to Earth's galaxy though they are much more advanced now. WordOfGod has been very silent on the matter. Also Earth itself qualifies due to the collapse of the Eve Gate.
