* 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]].

* H.G. Wells' works ''TheTimeMachine'' and ''Literature/TheWarOfTheWorlds'' do this. The first does this with Earth at the end of the planet, and the second does this with a barren, Red Weed-stricken London.

* HPLovecraft generally preferred describing attractive scenery, but when ugly scenery did show up, he certainly didn't skimp on descriptions of that, either. The "blasted heath" from ''Literature/TheColourOutOfSpace'' is particularly notable (though in that case, it's relevant to the plot).
