* Creator/AlanDeanFoster is ''addicted'' to this trope.
** Many Literature/HumanxCommonwealth novels were set on his own versions of DeathWorld (Prism in ''Sentenced to Prism''), Desert Planet (Jast in ''Sliding Scales'', Pyrassis in ''Reunion''), Ice Planet (Tran-Ky-Ky in ''Icerigger'', Treetrunk on ''Dirge''), Ocean Planet (''Cachalot''), [[UpToEleven Jungle Planet]] (''Midworld''), Jungle In A Swamp Planet (Fluva in ''Drowning World''), Even Soggier Than Vancouver Pine Forest Planet (Moth in ''For Love Of Mother-Not''), etc. He's even got Cave Planet (Longtunnel), NoBiochemicalBarriers Planet (Quofum), and Vacation Paradise Planet (New Riviera) thrown into the mix.
*** Notably, his ''Icerigger'' sub-series offers one of the most detailed accounts of natives' physical and technological ''adaptations'' to an Ice Planet in fiction.

[[spoiler:Megatron later captures him along with Raph and Miko and forces Optimus to give up the Omega Keys and surrender, [[SadisticChoice or he'd release them from their airtight capsules and let them die on the planet's surface]]. He later planned to use the Omega Lock to terraform Earth into a second Cybertron, despite knowing that doing so would kill everyone on the planet as well]].

* ''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 and it's 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]].

* In ''Film/PitchBlack'', the planet the plot takes place on starts as a desert planet, then turns into a night planet due to an eclipse.
* ''Film/TheChroniclesOfRiddick'' starts on an ice planet, heads to a desert-ish planet, and winds up on the heat-scoured Crematoria. The latter at least has the justification of being so close to the sun that the facing side actually melts every day, but the air is still somehow breathable.

** And finally averted in ''Film/{{Riddick}}'', in which Riddick finds himself on what appears to be a rocky desert world. It turns out that there's reasonably fertile grasslands just a few miles away, on the other side of the mountains.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'': Subverted. [[TidallyLockedPlanet The day side]] of Taldain appears to be a desert planet, but it has many unique biomes--it's just that they're all covered in sand. When some Nightsiders complain about being trapped in the desert, Kenton laughs and says they're nowhere ''near'' the desert. To prove it, he dribbles some water on the sand, which causes vines to burst out of the ground that they can then harvest for food and water. The main setting is actually a port city on the ocean.

* ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank'' does this with nearly all of the planets, with what you see in the small slice the level being representative of the entire world.
** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] however with ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankAll4One'', which takes place almost entirely on one planet and features forest, polar and ruined city environments, among others.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Usually, only a small part of any given world is shown, so it is not possible to generalize about the entire planet. However, there are a few cases were a world is explicitly stated as being a Single Biome Planet:
