* The Source Wall is a wall around the entire {{DCU}}, which...well, who fucking knows. It makes no sense. Either 2D Space is in full effect or it lines the entire interior of the universe, in which case the universe is both finite and shaped in a way where that makes sense. Also, there are powerful cosmic beings embedded in the wall, and The Source (which may or may not be God) is on the other side.

* No mention of ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse2002''? The Mystic Wall separates the Light and Dark hemispheres of Eternia. For a time its utterly unbreachable and, as far as inhabitants on either side are concerned, a literal wall around their portion of the world. Right up until current events are kicked off in the series, when Skeletor breaks it down.

* Creator/{{Ted Chiang}}'s ''Tower of Babylon'' is a speculative fiction short story where it's more of a ceiling [[spoiler: or floor]]. The vault of heaven is a literal stone roof to the universe, and the Babylonians have built a tower to talk to God, who they believe resides above it. [[spoiler: One of them makes it, only to emerge from a cavern deep in the Earth, back where he started--somewhat similar to the Clarke example above, the world loops back on itself.]] In another story, ''Exhalation'', the narrator mentions how he has "journeyed all the way to the edge of the world, and seen the solid chromium wall that extends from the ground up into the infinite sky."

The wall can surround a single village, a town, a continent, a world, or even [[CorralledCosmos an entire galaxy]]. Or it could seemingly surround nothing, and simply mark a barrier between one world and the next. Surprisingly common in Soviet era SF. Think about it.

* In ''Film/TheThirteenthFloor'' the world has no physical wall around it but it does have an edge where the simulated nature is visible to the naked eye. People with in the simulated world are just programmed to never think about going anywhere near that edge (of course there are exceptions...)
