* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': The Riverlands, especially after the Red Wedding when the Freys take over the Riverlands. Arya and Sandor Clegane trudge through the countryside on their way to the Vale and the landscape is a desiccated wasteland.

If it's post-apocalyptic, it's a look of abandonment rather that slums/sprawl or recent destruction. Buildings are crumbling, collapsed, torn open, leaning. There are rubble piles at the base of walls, peeling paint. Familiar objects are weathered, rusted, rotted, sun-bleached, and may be encrusted in dirt and dust which has been wetted by rain at some point and dried. Buildings, vehicles, etc may be half-buried in sediment as if a flood had come through, basically they're melted into the ground. Cracked desert soil is common, though not required, the next likely option is jungle-like overgrowth as the Earth retakes the city. Many of these elements are directly based on what has already happened in real abandoned locations.

*Several examples in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'':
**The Plains of Death, carpeted with skeletons with rusty swords, cold as death, windless, under a sky full of thick clouds that haven't rained in years.
**The [[GhostCity dead, abandoned city of Ehndris]], filled with rampant weeds, crumbling ruins, and monsters magically made out of inorganic trash.

* UnhallowedMetropolis goes for this with its view of ruined London. It goes for ruined zombie apocalypse hellhole by way of poison gas and gasmask fetishism - when the art isn't instead just vaguely photoshopped goth models.
* ChangelingTheDreaming has a weird twist on this trope. A changeling experiences the wonder and power of creation and imagination, so the art has an occasional motif where the WorldOfDarkness is depicted as this trope to changelings because they can see what the world is like when seen through eyes that still Dream.

* ''FlashForward2009'': The first 17 minutes of the first episode is dedicated to showing the destruction that occured in downtown LA when the entire world's population simultaneously blacked out for 2 minutes and 17 seconds. There are more images from around the world throughout the rest of the episode.

* ''PowerRangers''/''SuperSentai'': Shows up occasionally. Usually in Zord fights only a few buildings, if any, are damaged. But on special occasions the city can get quite smashed up. One of the best known is of course the rampage of the Dragonzord towards the end of the Evil Green Ranger saga from ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers''.

* ''{{Threads}}'': From the moment when the bomb hits Sheffield, there's nothing but scenery gorn - collapsed, burning buildings, piles of corpses, feral dogs. And when the action moves into the countryside, nuclear winter has taken care of all plant and animal life. CrapsackWorld doesn't even begin to cover it.

** The ''Scars of Mirrodin'' block has different art on its basic lands for each of its three sets. Setting them side-by-side shows just how badly the war with New Phyrexia is ruining the once-shining land. And then the end result when [[spoiler: Phyrexia wins]].
