* The ''Franchise/StarWars'' franchise is known for them: Hoth is an ice planet, Tatooine, Geonosis, Jakku and Jedha are desert worlds, Coruscant is a city planet, Endor is a forest moon, Dagobah is a swamp planet, Bespin is a cloud planet, Kamino and Ahch-To are ocean planets, Mustafar is a volcanic planet, and Takodana is a lakeland planet. Nearly all the classifications described above occur in the movies.

* The Hutts' homeworld of Nal Hutta is a swamp planet, most of its natural resources were strip mined, and its environment makes it close to a DeathWorld.

* The Hutts' homeworld of Nal Hutta is a swamp planet, most of its natural resources were strip mined, and its environment makes it close to a DeathWorld. It's not just lack of concern for the environment by the notoriously greedy Hutts that caused Nal Hutta to end up this way: a planet-wide swamp is how they ''like'' it.

* In ''VideoGame/Subnautica'' initially plays this straight with Planet 4546B being almost entirely ocean save for a single floating island, it then completely subverts the trope by showing just how diverse an ocean planet can be! From volcanic sea floor vents to lush coral reefs and kelp forests, all in the guise of a simple ocean planet, it really goes a long way towards giving the trope the finger.

** ''The Word For World Is Forest'': While the name would lead one to expect Athshe to be a Forest Planet, it's mostly an Ocean Planet. The only land is an comparatively small archipelago covered in forest. While the native name "Athshe" means "Forest," its colonial name "New Tahiti" reflects its nature as an Ocean Planet dotted with a few islands.

* ''Film/{{Flash Gordon|1980}}'': Two of the moons of Mongo fit this trope. Arboria is a Jungle/Swamp Planet and Frigia is described as an Ice Planet. And all of these and Mongo appear to be Island Planets floating inside a weird, glowing nebula-like thing with a vortex as an entryway. It's not a conventional solar system as we would know it.

Its implied that these are what is left of planets that have been attacked by Ming to prevent them from becoming a threat.

* ''GalaxyExpress999'' visited a Dark Planet, subverted in that it's actually a rather pleasant place with lush forests, pretty flowers, low crime rates, and genial people-- lovely to visit apart from the difficulty of finding your way around. At least it ''was''...until a native MadScientist, having decided that her people's way of life was [[{{Anvilicious}} archaic and hopelessly out of step with the rest of the galaxy]], shut off the planet's natural light-dampening field and shot an artificial light source into orbit. Everyone and everything on the planet (herself included) promptly [[DownerEnding dropped dead from photosensitivity]].

** Ulgrotha and Amonkhet are mostly just desert wasteland, aside from a single small region in each that managed to remain prosperous. [[spoiler:The latter doesn't even have that anymore.]]
