* MichaelCrichton's ''Literature/{{Sphere}}'' occurs on its majority on a U.S. Navy UnderwaterBase at the bottom of the ocean, and there is a constant mention of how the extreme depths are a challenge for both man and machine (even something as simple as cooking gets a whole lot more complicated when done in a helium/oxygen environment).

* ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}} World Book 7: Rifts Underseas'' -- {{Pirate}}s, PoweredArmor-wearing Dolphins, Shapeshifting Orcas, giant squid {{Eldritch Abomination}}s with tentacles miles long, fish-headed mutants, magic singing, playable Humpback Whales, floating cities, Extradimensional aquatic conquerors, and the U.S. Navy, among others. Actually pretty par for the course for ''Rifts''.

Also could be called Pirate Punk, though the setting often will not even have so much as a single pirate in it. Life in a [[SingleBiomePlanet mostly watery world]] (or a mostly watery part of the world where the rest isn't of much matter) with distant islands connected by trade routes, ships sailing back and forth, and of course, many {{Pirate}}s and buccaneers, whether they're wielding cutlasses on sailing ships or the aquatic equivalent of HumongousMecha. May contain OrganicTechnology, and have a large focus on what happens under the waves as well as over. Fantastic elements in keeping with old sailors' superstitions (mermaids, [[GhostShip abandoned derelicts]] [[FlyingDutchman that often aren't so abandoned after all]], [[KrakenAndLeviathan giant sea monsters]]) can fit, too.

Many works of modern fantasy or speculative fiction are set
in a [[SingleBiomePlanet mostly watery world]] (or a mostly watery part of the world where the rest isn't of much matter) with distant islands connected by trade routes, ships sailing back and forth, and mighty colonial nations vying for rulership of course, the seas. Also often called Pirate Punk, as the setting naturally lends itself (but is by no means obliged) to have many {{Pirate}}s and buccaneers, whether they're wielding cutlasses on sailing ships or the aquatic equivalent of HumongousMecha. May contain OrganicTechnology, and have a large focus on what happens under the waves as well as over.
