* 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.

* Hive Cities in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', most notably Hive Primus from ''{{Necromunda}}''. In most cases, it's a necessity: the lower atmosphere is so polluted by millenia of reckless industrial production that only fresh air pumped in from the top of the hive allows them to survive.

* Sharn, the City of Towers in ''{{Eberron}}''. It's towers average at around 2km tall with some of the tallests having half to a full a kilometre more. Above them is a flying district of rich people called the Skyway. The city's three dimensional nature means most of the transit takes place with flying vehicules such as Soarsleds and Skybarges.
