** ''Literature/TheForerunnerSaga'' novels mention that the [[RecursivePresursors Precursors]] built towers that essentially ''bridged planets''. They were also completely indestructible [[spoiler: excluding a Halo's main weapon]].

* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] (literally) in ''{{VideoGame/Halo 4}}'': on the artificial "shield world" of Requiem, giant Forerunner structures hang down from the ceiling in the sky, dropping down to nearly ground level. It's actually rather striking, in a beautiful way, since because the "ceiling" is so high that it can't really be seen[[note]](the ceiling is actually visible, but is so distant that one has to look carefully beyond the clouds above to see its texture)[[/note]], the overall effect, visually, is of unimaginally tall skyscrapers that are floating off the ground.

* The Sunspire in ''VideoGame/{{Unreal|I}}'', which shows up in the skyboxes of several maps before you actually reach it. There are seven or eight regularly spaced levels near the entrance, another two near the top, and even then there is a lift that rides at such high speeds the Doppler effect comes into play, which you spend ''ten solid seconds'' on before you reach the other end. And ''that'' is because it's only the top half of the spire that's built into.
