* ''VideoGame/{{Nihilumbra}}'': The turrets seem to apply at first, being so abandoned and yet still working. [[spoiler: It comes full force in the City, which can still work without a hitch with a little yellow paint despite being abandoned who knows how long]].

* Played mostly straight in [[DavidWeber David Weber's]] ''Literature/EmpireFromTheAshes'', when a conscious effort to preserve was made. Thanks primarily to good AI, as well as rustproof alloys, [[YearOutsideHourInside stasis fields]] and occasionally space vacuum. Averted for installations abandoned in haste.

* Averted in ''Literature/Titan'' by Creator/StephenBaxter. Near the end of the book, we get a glimpse of how the Voyager 1 probe disintegrates after five billion years of space weathering[[note]]Things in space can last ''a lot'' of time; see RealLife at the bottom[[/note]].

* ''Literature/{{Anthem}}'': The house the protagonists find in the mountains is largely untouched by the centuries since the Unmentionable Times. Not only are the glass windows intact, but so are the previous owner's clothing and library.

** ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' has a Zentraedi mothership that is still in perfect working order, and a factory satellite that ''is'' breaking down... but only because of continuous attacks on it during the last half million years. The latter can still be repaired, and there are other satellites who, having suffered far less attacks, are in much better conditions.

** ''Anime/MacrossDelta'' shows that many Protoculture ruins still have working water pipelines, and [[spoiler:a fully functional Protoculture battleship, far more powerful than both the warships they gave to their slave races and those developed by the NUN, is discovered and activated]].

** ''Anime/MacrossZero'' has the Bird Human, a bird-like HumongousMecha that, once activated, it proves more than a match for dozens of sea-faring warships and attached planes, only suffering damage when [[NukeEm the UN fires four reaction weapons at it]].

* ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'''s story toys with the concept. On the planet Bara Magna, pretty much every structure exposed to environmental forces has degraded into ruins over the last 100 000 years, and the locals possess no technology to keep them in shape. However when they literally pull their settlements together, those combine to form the frame of a HumongousMecha that only needs a PowerSource to become functional again. Also there's an even more ancient fortress in the Northern region, which still stands intact with all its traps operational. The excess of [[AppliedPhlebotinum Phlebotinum]] in the ''BIONICLE'' universe lends this some justification, though.

** The amount of time that passed after the calamity is hinted to be extremely long. The very first, non-spoilery terminal in the game states that the last network connection was established 9,999 years ago. On one hand, this readout is surrounded by similarly random and glitched data. On the other, the terminal says that the vast archive was reduced from several petabytes to mere dozen gigabytes in the meantime. It's unlikely that such corruption (and timer "running out of bits") could occur in mere decades.

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans", the Gundam Barbatos is in perfect working condition even after not seeing combat for over 300 years. Subverted for other Gundam Frames - out of the 72, only 26 actually survived to the present day.
