* ''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "The Ambergris Element" took place on the water world Argo. (Presumably ''not'' [[Music/BannedFromArgo the one they were banned from]].)

* Bizarrely this trope plays out on TabletopGame/RocketAge's ''Mars'' of all places, which has seas of silt, pirates, whalers and merchants hopping from island to island.

* ''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.

* ''Literature/{{Tranquilium}}'' starts out overwhelmingly maritime, with the human population being concentrated on islands of various sizes. [[spoiler: At the end, it becomes an extreme example of this trope as most of the world's known landmasses are submerged and the population moved to huge arks that travel in search for new lands.]]

* The second ''[[Literature/ThePendragonAdventure Pendragon]]'' novel, ''The Lost City of Faar'', takes place on the territory of Cloral, which is covered entirely by water [[spoiler: until the mountain of Faar is raised at the end]]. Cloral has generally advanced technology, including water guns that can blast through walls, plastic made from processed water, and water-based propulsion systems, with specialized floating cities called "habitats" housing residents.

* 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.
