** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', there are flooded ruins of several presumably Hylian villages found downstream of Zora's Domain in the southeastern reaches of Hyrule. Considering that the Zora's Domain story arc in this game involves the threat of a devastating flood caused by [[HumongousMecha Divine Beast Vah Ruta's]] water-generating powers, there's a possibility that Vah Ruta caused some other minor floods in the century since the Great Calamity, especially since these flooded villages ''don't'' have the remains of [[MechaMooks Guardians]] like most other ruins.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Drowntown}}'', future London [[GlobalWarming has a lot more water]] than it used to. It's still fully inhabited, however, and has actually gained population as people seek refuge from places that have it worse off. Among other things, the flooding means that water-based transport is now considerably more common one of the main characters is an aqua-courier, riding through what used to be streets.

%%* ''Manga/YokohamaKaidashiKikou''* In ''Manga/YokohamaKaidashiKikou'', due to an environmental shift whose details are largely unrevealed, a great many coastal cities are completely covered by the ocean. At least one chapter revolves around exploring one such city, Yokosuka, whose street lights still come on even though the city is completely submerged.

* Creator/HPLovecraft's "Literature/TheColourOutOfSpace" takes place in a region of Massachusetts which is eventually flooded to create a reservoir. Several homesteads and small towns end up submerged, including the [[StarfishAliens Colour]]-infested farm. (Minus the Colour, this is TruthInTelevision, as the Quabbin Reservoir was created in this manner.)



* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls2'' has a couple: the realm of Heide is almost completely submerged by the sea, with only a couple of towers still habitable above the water. The Iron Keep is likewise sunken... in ''lava''. The Old Iron King became too greedy, and built his castle too high; the castle (suggested to be pure iron) got really, really heavy and partially sank into the volcano the King had insisted it be built on.

* In ''VideoGame/AceCombat04ShatteredSkies'', your enemy's capital city, Farbanti, has a submerged downtown full of scorched, tilted skyscrapers (and during the battle, submarines) due to an asteroid impact.
* Given the amount of damage it's suffered after a genocidal civil war, Rapture of ''VideoGame/BioShock'' fame probably counts, even if it thankfully hasn't flooded yet. In the sequel, as you're a Big Daddy in a self-contained suit, you can go outside and see what it's like from without.

** Venice is slowly ''sinking into the ocean'' because it's so heavy that the land underneath (formerly marsh, so that's understandable) can't hold up its weight.

* ''VideoGame/The Crystal Key'' has the Arkonian capital city of Suralon, which was almost completely submerged when the [[EvilOverlord evil psychic Ozgar]] bombarded it with his gravity-altering satellites. Naturally, the people there evacuated the place while it was sinking.
