* ''Videogame/FromTheDepths'', a block-based building vehicular combat simulator, originally squarely in the Ocean Punk territory with WoodenShipsAndIronMen, set on a world with wildly unpredictable weather and little land. Updates and scope changes have increased the breadth of it, leading to sail-powered blackpowder-toting brigantines fighting alongside composite-clad [[LightningGun particle beam cannon]] nuclear submarines with ZeppelinsFromAnotherWorld providing anti-missile screens and advanced targeting data.

* TheCrystalMaze replaced the [[IndustrialGhetto Industrial Zone]] with the Ocean Zone in later seasons - a Titanic-style sunken ocean liner trapped within an air bubble on the ocean's floor.

* The Detroit techno group Drexciya has this as part of their aesthetic and backstory. The story goes that during the days of the slave trade, pregnant women were thrown overboard. Over time the unborn children had grew to be underwater warriors, built bubble cities underwater, and are planning to attack the surface and return to the homeland.

* Owing to the fact that the Elemental Pole of Water is located there, this tends to be the theme of any ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' campaign set in the West. Common hazards include: Cannibalistic demon pirates, water and air elementals, ornery storm deities, aquatic variants of TheFairFolk, {{Magitek}} LostTechnology battleships (some of which [[AIIsACrapshoot may be sentient]]), gigantic sharks, crazed Wyld mutants, various tribes of aquatic Beastmen and the Lunars who rule them, malevolent [[TheNecrocracy empires of the dead]]...In fact, according to the Sidereals splatbook, the Convention of Water is the single most overworked group of Sidereals in existence. Considering that the job of the Sidereals is to keep Creation from going to pieces, this should tell you a lot about the West.

* ''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''.
** They come back to the sea with ''Rifts Lemuria'', with Biomantic armor made of wood, coral, barnicles, blood(among other things); merpeople; giant junk-collecting hermit crabs, stone aircraft, and [[GiantEnemyCrab Giant Enemy]] [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire]] [[GiantEnemyCrab Crab-people]] literally from Davey Jones' Locker.

* The ''Franchise/{{Dishonored}}'' franchise is essentially a combination of this and Victorian DieselPunk. While the usual pirates, marines and ghost ships don't appear, the more time-accurate whalers and their prey, [[EldritchAbomanation strangely magical whales]] do, alongside a humongous ocean with little but a few islands where the empire of Gristol lies. So, while the setting is ocean-punk-ish, you never actually go to the ocean.

* The ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' series takes place on various islands throughout the Caribbean, and although it takes place during the UsefulNotes/GoldenAgeOfPiracy there are plenty of [[AnachronismStew anachronistic elements]] like grog vending machines, pirate action figures and even a voodoo-powered giant robot.
