** Crocodile Island from ''Donkey Kong Country 2'' is oddly both {{Mordor}} and a Polluted Wasteland. It has/had GangplankGalleon, an AmusementParkOfDoom called Krazy Kremland, a forboding EvilTowerOfOminousness, is filled with dead trees, Zingers (killer bees), Brambles and danger, and the whole place and ocean around it is dark murky green. It actually sinks into the ocean after the final boss is defeated.
** Mekanos in ''Donkey Kong Country 3'', which is the polluted side to this trope taken to extremes. A level with a giant ripsaw shredding a whole forest as it goes upwards and various factories. [[note]]Compare with KAOS Kore is quite a serene pleasant area, with the exception of Kastle KAOS and the DeathWorld like area of Lightning Lookout.[[/note]]

* In ''{{Starfox 64}}'', the once beautiful ocean planet of Zoness has been turned into one of these by Andross, with sickly greenish water and mutants all around.

* The Space Pirate Homeworld of ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 3'' is very much this. The planet's acid rain is the most dangerous environmental hazard in that game, killing you almost before you can realize it.

* [[spoiler: Chester's Mill]] briefly becomes this in the last few chapters of ''UnderTheDome'', when Big Jim Rennie sends members of his new police force to the radio station to collect some of the propane he has been stealing from the town [[spoiler: to run his meth lab]]. Chef panics and [[spoiler: blows up the meth lab, releasing a wave of fire that sweeps down from the old radio station and torches half the town, obscuring the surface of the dome and turning the town into a darkened wasteland with a toxic atmosphere]].

* Cubatão in Brazil. The rain was so acidic that it was known as "rain that burns". The city was known as [[IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace the Valley of Death]]. ItGotBetter though.

* To some degree, Planet Leeds in ''{{Freelancer}}''. Even though the "great evil" is pretty much absent, ''imagine a planet capable of blowing out entire nebulae of smog!'' Accordingly, the government is depicted as unable to deal with the pollution and industrial accidents.

* ''Literature/TheRunningMan'': Most of America in 2025. The corporate networks have gained unrestricted license to pump out exhaust gasses that cause a surge in bronchitis cases, to the point where the relatively well-off part of the population use special nose filters.

* In ''Videogame/{{Factorio}}'', ''you'' play as the wannabe WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanet villain polluting the planet. Automation equipment used in factories spew out pollution that kills off forests and [[GaiasVengeance agitates]] the local BigCreepyCrawlies. A factory built in a pristine forest will soon turn the green trees into dead husks. Sadly, there is no way to directly dump oil into water sources - without [[GameMod mods]], at least.

* Spiller's Harbor from ''[[{{Banjo-Kazooie}} Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge]]''. Once a beautiful resort, then [[BigBad Gruntilda]] and her minions came and turned the place into an oil refinery.

* [[DoubleSubversion Double Subverted]] on ''Series/{{The 100}}''. The Sky People were expecting Earth to still be a toxic, radioactive DeathWorld after the [[WorldWarIII nuclear war]] a century ago. Instead they find a lush, vibrant and abundantly habitable world, with little sign of nuclear contamination. Then they find out that Earth actually ''is'' still highly radioactive; they've just developed an unusually high tolerance for radiation, as have the various plants and animals on the planet's surface. The Mountain Men, who haven't developed such superhuman tolerance, find the Earth's surface just as toxic and deadly as the Sky People feared.
