* In ''WesternAnimation/FatherAndDaughter'', a father apparently commits SuicideBySea, hugging his daughter goodbye and then rowing into the ocean in a rowboat, never to be seen again. Eventually the shallow sea coast is drained and made into a Dutch polder. Decades later, when the little girl is now an old woman, she walks out onto the polder and finds her father's rowboat, half-buried in sand.

* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryReturns'' features a shipwreck at the top of a cliff.
** An argument could be made for the ship mast seen in the LostWoods of VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry 2, although it may just be there as a "spiritual resting place" for the [[PaletteSwap ghost version]] of the boss you fought earlier.

* The opening credits of ''Series/FatherTed'' show a stranded ship, some way inland, ostensibly somewhere on Craggy Island, with no clue as to how it got there. Apparently a real ship was washed ashore on the West of Ireland after a bit of what locals call "soft weather"...

Indeed, it has moved again once or twice over the decades, when storms are heavy enough.

* In Creator/MichaelMoorcock's ''Elric'' saga, Elric is given the use of the Ship That Sails Over Land And Sea by the friendly King of the Water Elementals. Unfortunately, while sailing it over land, the King of the Earth Elementals gets tetchy over an artefact rightly belonging on water intruding on his domain, and arbitrarily removes its power to sail over land, leaving ship and crew stranded.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' gives us the Sandship, which used to be a seafaring vessel until the seas dried out and filled with sand. At least, until you activate the Timeshift Stone onboard...

* ''VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness'' has the S.S. Libra. In this case, you actually see how it got there in the beginning of the game. It was dropped there by Shadow Lugia. Unlike most of the examples, the Libra was dumped in the Eclo Wastes far more recently than most ships described by this trope, and aside from Cipher and Snagem interlopers, there's only one local onboard. Cipher looted the Pokemon on the ship during their attack, and the human sailors were thrown overboard. Your visit to the Libra is the first time anyone could get a good glimpse of what happened to it.

* A couple of ''VideoGame/MechWarrior'' missions have taken place in areas that were formerly underwater. In ''2: Mercenaries'', it's possible to visit a world that used to be more temperate until its orbit somehow moved closer to its sun and most of the ocean boiled off; the campaign will eventually have you go into the now empty hull of a wrecked ocean liner in the middle of a desert. In ''3'', you'll enter an area that used to be a lake until it was drained--look around and you'll find stranded {{Sea Mine}}s (which of course will blow up if you shoot or step on them) and the wrecked hulls of several sunken ships in the dried out lakebed.
