* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' has Castle Aincrad. So big, it's essentially a world within a world (though it's actually the entire ''playable'' world of the fictional SAO game). The largest floor is 10 kilometers in diameter, and each one is 100 meters high. Given that there are 100 floors, that makes it 10 kilometers high. But then, that's not counting the fact that it all ''floats in the sky''. The anime also depicts a massive structure extending almost as far ''down'', below the first floor.

* The eponymous ArTonelico actually reaches out into space. All of humanity lives on it or one of two similar towers, since they're the only things tall enough to reach over [[AfterTheEnd the sea of plasma enveloping the Earth.]]

** ''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.
