* The ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'' comic strip ''ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock'' features a warlike human culture, Termight, who are at war with everyone else in the universe despite the fact that culturally and technologically, they are regressing. They fight with medieval weapons, their HumongousMecha are recycled, one of them can only move its feet with the aid of men turning capstans etc.[[note]]If that reminds you of [[TabletopGames/Warhammer40000 another popular franchise]], it's not a coincidence; they share a number of writing credits.[[/note]]

* In ''Manga/DesertPunk'', there are the remains of whole cities that are occasionally found with scavengable supplies, though by the story's start one hasn't been found in decades. The Oasis Government, seemingly the only ones capable of producing food in the manga, supply everyone outside of their {{Elaborate Underground Base}}s with resources to get by for the sole purpose of having a workforce to doing the scavanging while its citizens on the inside have whole corporations based on reverse-engineering it (and to provide an example of how bad things are, one incredibly rich scavenger we meet made his fortune out of salvaging an intact copy of ''The Game Of Life'').

* The Dust Zone in ''Anime/DigimonXrosWars'' is one that's also a [[DownInTheDumps massive junkyard]]. The local villain is forcing the other Digimon to give it parts so it can escape to another zone.

* In ''[[Literature/DreamPark The California Voodoo Game]]'', the Game-scenario occupants of [=MIMIC=] use materials scrounged from the damaged {{Arcology}} for clothing, tools, weapons and artwork. One of the first enemies "killed" in the Game carries a club made from a table leg with an old can strapped to the end, and a chunk of concrete stuffed inside for weight.

* Ironically, hobbyists who practice traditional handicrafts sometimes find ''the modern world'' to be a ScavengerWorld of sorts, in that historically-accurate materials and tools can be almost impossible to track down in a society where advanced technologies have long since supplanted them. Just ''try'' tracking down replacement parts for a 13th century spinning wheel or a Roman-style suit of armor outside of a museum.

->''"…did you ever try to put a broken piece of glass back together? Even if the pieces fit, you can’t make it whole again the way it was. But if you’re clever, you can still use the pieces to make other useful things. Maybe even something wonderful, like a mosaic. Well, the world broke just like glass. And everyone’s trying to put it back together like it was, but it’ll never come together in the same way."''

* ''TabletopGame/NuclearRenaissance'' has a design style that seems to echo [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Orkish]] engineering, both in terms of size (vehicles way too big for real-life roads) and in the fact that it all seems to have been scultped from riveted-together fragments of scrap metal. Many of the vehicles are available piece by piece from the store, allowing all manner of custom nonsense creations.

* ''Godbound'' from Sine Nomine has this on two levels. One, most of the old technology has stopped working, making it interesting loot for any pantheon with the power to get it running again. Two, Heaven itself is broken, and the Godbound are scavenging its bits to see if they can fix it, build something better, or just kick the backsides of their rivals.
