* Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin's [[ScienceFiction SF]] novels tend to steer this way: ''Literature/TheLeftHandOfDarkness'', ''Rocannon's World'', etc. At least in the sense of having the planets be a pseudo-feudal setting -- she generally avoids the more magical elements.

* ''VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn'' is an example of this trope set on post-apocalyptic Earth, where a FeudalFuture society of viking-like clans battle enormous robot dinosaurs and each other.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Oddworld}}'' series takes place on the titular Oddworld, and is a Dystopa story about the endless destruction caused by industrialized species and the effects that out-of-control business excesses with no morals have on the more vulnerable races. There's plenty of [[SlaveRace Slave Races]] and LastOfHisKind to go around with a heavy GreenAesop.

May involve WeirdScience. Prone to use MedievalEuropeanFantasy tropes, or feature a FeudalFuture. Overlaps heavily with the Dying Earth subgenre pioneered by Creator/JackVance's [[Literature/DyingEarth eponymous novel]].

May involve WeirdScience. SchizoTech may occur. Even if the planet has futuristic transportation, expect, however irrationally, large parts of it to be unexplored, and it to be easy to be out of contact with one's home (and government). Prone to use MedievalEuropeanFantasy tropes, or feature a FeudalFuture. Overlaps heavily with the Dying Earth subgenre pioneered by Creator/JackVance's [[Literature/DyingEarth eponymous novel]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' is ambiguous at first when there is only a single island, then becomes a clear example as an underground alien civilization is uncovered (actually the body of a downed HumongousMecha). A new planet that's later introduced is an archetypal example of this trope.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Space 1889}}'' is [[VictorianBritain Victorian]] colonial adventures on carefully described planets with a heavy dose of SteamPunk. Unlike most planetary romances, the science (particularly the one which is based on different natural laws and thus doesn't really work in our world) is carefully described.

Added DiffLines:

* While the individual games are mostly just HighFantasy, the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' franchise as a whole indicates that it is this via its CanonWelding. It has been established that all of the worlds of ''Final Fantasy'' are part of a shared multiverse separated by a nothingness called the Void, something that occasionally spawns (or defeats) villains and can be crossed by characters with sufficient magical or technological means. Space travel between the worlds is theoretically possible and has happened once or twice, or has been part of villains' plots (e.g. Sephiroth's plan to use the Planet as a spaceship to find another planet in ''Anime/AdventChildren''). ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' in particular involves travel between different planets via meteorites.
