* In ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'', the all highschool carrier ships are pretty much "cities floating on the sea". While the series itself gives a rough image of the Ooarai carrier's size, the third OVA and other supplementary materials go in length about it. Ooarai carrier is a self-sufficient city with population about 30.000 people. The distance between the waterline and its main deck is 400m, thus it can be inferred that Ooarai carrier is around 7 - 14,5km in length depending on the definition of the main deck, whether it's from the lower deck or just the surface deck. The carrier is so large, there's a phenomenon of urban decay in its bowel. Also, Ooarai is one of the smaller school; [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/gup/images/f/f6/SSW3.png/revision/latest?cb=20170304090413 every other schools]], with exception of Maginot (which has a submarine as their school ship), are larger than Ooarai with Black Forest Peak is said to have a population of more than 100.000 people.

* In ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', there is a ''nautical'' ship that's enormous in size, built to traverse the long journey to the Dark Continent. This thing is so large, from the perspective of its passengers, it functions more as a self-contained city than a vehicle. It includes several dining areas, a courthouse, and even what appears to be a shantytown that popped up on one of the lower decks, and, when the journey begins, it carries about 100,000 passengers (though the number may be higher due to there being many stowaways).

* ''Franchise/{{Dune}}'' has Heighliners, immense ships that are the primary means to transport everything in the known universe, as they are piloted by Guild Navigators who can navigate and teleport the ship to planets lightyears away from each other. Then there's the No-ships, which are able to transport a full grown SandWorm (200 to 400 meters long) in their cargo holds.

The prequel series ''Literature/PreludeToDune'' reveals that Heighliners are manufactured ''underground''. Specifically, in the vast caverns under the surface of Ix. How does the ship then get into space? Why, a Navigator simply folds space right from the cave. Immediately after that, the workers start laying down the framework of the next Heighliner. The contract for building Heighliners keeps switching between Richese and Ix, the only two planets with enough technology and industry to build them.

* Slightly longer than the Seawise Giant, but not as massive, is the ''Prelude'' floating liquified natural gas facility--a ship that serves as combination of a drilling rig and a refinery for natural gas. It measures 1,600 feet long and displaces 600,000 tons, and is capable of processing enough natural gas in a year to power a city the size of Hong Kong.

* Starships in Creator/HBeamPiper's [[StandardSciFiHistory "Terro-Human Future History"]] are invariably described as spherical. In ''Space Viking'' the starship ''Enterprise'' ([[Series/StarTrek no, not that one]]) is described as a "two thousand-foot globe"; assuming this is the ship's diameter, this works out to a circumference of over a mile. In the short story "A Slave is a Slave", an "Empire ship-of-the-line" is explicitly described as being "almost a mile in diameter"; in terms of ''volume'' this works out to being well over a hundred times bigger than the largest building ever constructed (the Boeing aircraft factory in Everett, Washington).

* In the Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog series, Dr. Eggman's philosophy of building large vehicles is "go big or go home," though he is more likely to build ''airships'' that are miles long, such as Wing Fortress in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'', Flying Battery in ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'', Egg Carrier and Egg Carrier 2 in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'', and Final Fortress in ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'', than spaceships. If Eggman wants to operate from space, most of the time, he builds a space station instead. The series is also no stranger to enormously large ocean-faring vessels too: In addition to the Egg Carriers being able to travel by sea if needed, there are Huge Crisis and [[FlyingDutchman Haunted Ship]] from the VideoGame/SonicRushSeries.
