** The same Spiral is also the setting of its sister game {{Pirate101}}. Here inter-world transport isn't through stylized doors. Pirates instead use [[OurWormholesAreDifferent giant sky whirlpools]].

** Despite the above, many asteroids qualify as shattered worlds since it's thought they're the remains of larger ones destroyed on impacts with others. Such an example is the asteroid [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/8_Flora Flora]] and its "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flora_family family]]". Meanwhile, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4_Vesta Vesta]]'s most conspicuous feature is a ''huge'' crater (actually ''two'' craters) that occupies most of its southern hemisphere and whose responsible impacts expelled to space some of Vesta's mass.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'', [[http://www.starwars.com/databank/lola-sayu Lola Sayu]], home of [[TheAlcatraz the Citadel]], is missing almost an entire hemisphere and has an exposed core. It's not clear what cataclysmic event caused it to end up this way. Regardless of what happened, [[DeathWorld it's not a safe planet to traverse]] thanks to a combination of difficult terrain, strong winds and lots of sulfer-stenched lava.

* In the Season 5 premier of ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', after the agents are [[spoiler:propelled into the future by a Kree monolith]], a late-episode glimpse out a porthole reveals that [[spoiler:[[EarthAllAlong Earth]]]] has been reduced to this. Though what happened and who was responsible have been lost to history under Kree occupation, local fixer Deke believes that [[spoiler:Daisy, AKA [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Quake, Destroyer of Worlds]], is the one [[{{Pun}} at fault]].]]

** Also true for Enigmatic Observers, whose home system contains a Gas Giant called "Sky Father", with its moons called "Cradle" (which is their homeworld), "Mother", "Brother" and finally "Sister", the last of which has been [[DoubleEntendre ruined forever]].

** You can also create some yourself if [[AIIsACrapshoot the Contingency]] shows up as your endgame crisis. Defeating it requires destroying its five Machine Worlds with OrbitalBombardment, and since these worlds are jam-packed with KillerRobot factories down to the very core, all that remains when the guns fall silent is identical to The Mistake mentioned above.

* There are those who think that the [[AnotherDimension Borderworld of Xen]] from ''VideoGame/HalfLife1'' is something like this. The Nihilanth's original home planet was destroyed in a war against [[TheEmpire The Combine]], and, in his retreat, he transported the fragments, atmosphere, and some of the wildlife to Xen.



* ''VideoGame/ArTonelicoMelodyOfElemia'' takes place on a floating continent and a humongous tower floating over a devastated, uninhabitable planet.
* ''VideoGame/{{Bastion}}'', full stop. As you traverse through the assorted levels, the ground underneath the Kid's feet comes together and falls apart at the slightest whim, even disregarding his habit of wantonly smashing everything he sees into bite-sized chunks.
* The planet Ekkunar, homeworld of the Eldrid from ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'' is this. Some cataclysm fractured the planet several thousand years ago. While still basically spherical, huge geological chunks of the planet are separated from one another, exposing the molten core of Ekkunar. The brightest scientists in the remaining universe are still trying to ascertain why the planet hasnít flown apart or settled back in on itself. The best guesses still fall back to near mysticism, citing the universe-law-bending Varelsi or some arcane machinery of Ekkuni Dwarves.



* ''VideoGame/{{Eador}}'' has the titular once-whole world that was broken into many "shards" after the event known only as [[EarthShatteringKaboom "The Cataclysm"]]. The shards now drift in the Astral Plane, where they occasionaly merge between each other, break apart, vanish completely only to reappear later sometimes, get consumed by Chaos or are forcefully included into bigger "worlds" that are ruled by immortal beings commonly known as the Astral Masters.

* ''VideoGame/GiantsCitizenKabuto'' takes place on The Island, [[AllThereInTheManual "a massive fragment of a long-lost planet"]].



* Rock Star from ''VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards'' is this.



* The world begins much like this in ''VideoGame/LegendOfMana'' - various lands were ripped up and turned into artifacts, which it falls upon the protagonist to piece back together however they prefer. (Of course, they say from the beginning that it's AllJustADream, so...)
* ''VideoGame/LegoDimensions:'' The hub level of Vorton features a planet that has blown up, to the extent the core is visible, as part of the background.
* ''Malkari'' is a very obscure game about war in the asteroids left by a destroyed planet.
* As the result of an oversight in ''Franchise/MasterOfOrion'' 3, the AI always bombards planets from space before dropping troops to invade. Once a computer-controlled empire develops planet-destroying weapons, it becomes incapable of ever conquering colonies since it always blows them up first.
* In ''VideoGame/MugenSouls'', it's eventually discovered that The Seven Worlds [[spoiler:were originally one big world, which was broken into seven pieces and reformed into seven different planets.]]
* The Age of Spire from ''VideoGame/MystIVRevelation'': According to the [[AllThereInTheManual supplemental materials]], it was a planet whose magnetic core became unstable, which repelled large chunks of metal (and lots of attached rock) right out of the planet. Enough time has gone by that the collective gravitational attraction of the chunks towards the center has reached equilibrium with the magnetic repulsion, long enough that the giant floating fragments have enough gravity to have an atmosphere and even some flora.
* In the intro to ''[[VideoGame/ShadowOfTheWoolBall Rise of the Wool Ball]]'', the cat leader shatters the protagonist's planet into three larger pieces (plus a lot of debris floating around), so as to easier strip it of its natural resources. [[spoiler:Luckily it's pieced back together in the ending.]]

* Rock Star from ''VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards'' is this.In the earlier entries of the ''VideoGame/SpaceEmpires'' series, after [[EarthShatteringKaboom blowing up a planet]] you can colonize the resultant asteroid field . You are unable to colonize asteroids any more as of ''[=SEIV=]''. Note that you can also create planets in the games, and you can accidentally ([[VideogameCrueltyPotential or intentionally]]) create a planet out of the asteroid colony.



* ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'': There are are a large number of these in the various systems in the game. Too many to list. Notably the Romulus system.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' you usually find worlds like this in systems with black holes. If one of the [[VestigialEmpire Fallen Empires]] in your galaxy are the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Holy Guardians]], one of the worlds in their home system will be a planet with a huge chunk blown out of it, revealing a glowing core, called [[NoodleIncident "The Mistake."]]

** In James P. Hogan's ''Giants'' series the planet was called Minerva, and was the original homeworld of both the titular giants and humans. The planet's moon was captured by Earth's gravity and became Earth's current moon as well.
