* Though it's not as prominent as it is in ''Fallout'', ''{{VideoGame/Metro2033}}'' and ''VideoGame/MetroLastLight'' feature a fair amount of technology made from pre-war scrap and salvage. Highlights include a handheld dynamo with a motor from a sewing machine, guns partially constructed from pieces of plumbing/gas pipes, and an improvised river raft built from what looks like sheets of roofing material, empty oil drums, and pieces of chain-link fencing.

* ''Literature/TheSpiderwickChronicles'' very much have this in the form of Thimbletack the brownie who lives in the walls and steals human items for his home. In the illustrations he is even shown to where a cobbled together outfit that includes a hat made out of sewing equipment. * ''Literature/{{Railsea}}'' like many of the books by ChinaMieville features a SteamPunk inspired world, the difference is this one is set a really long time AfterTheEnd and features [[LostTechnology several scavenger piles]] from which people gather resources.

A very novel setting in that the 'discarded items' include people, ideas, and abstract concepts that all 'cross over' to the un-city when nobody is looking. ChinaMieville seems to be a big fan of this trope. ** ''Literature/{{Railsea}}'' like many of the his other books by ChinaMieville features a SteamPunk inspired world, the difference is this one is set a really long time AfterTheEnd and features [[LostTechnology several scavenger piles]] from which people gather resources.

broken link, if someone knows where Awesome Yet Practical ended up, feel free to fix the link
In either case (but especially the second), this trope is often made to be extremely visually interesting as random objects are put to surprising [[AwesomeYetPractical practical]] ([[RuleOfCool or not]]) new uses. Because of this visual focus, ScavengedPunk has been common as SceneryPorn in animation especially recent [[AllCGICartoon CGI films]].
