* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' if taken as its own universe rather than pure parody presents a very lived-in future where things do go wrong and break down.

** One could argue that RidleyScott is one of the {{Trope Codifier}}s of this trope - see ''Film/BladeRunner'' below.

* Just about everything in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' falls under this. Equipment and weapons are dented and worn, with paint worn off the edges. The ship has lockers marked with strips of labelled duck tape and the hold has graffiti scratched into the walls. Its especially prominent when looking at the Broken Hill Foundry map where the habitation section has just as much junk, markings, and general wear and tear that you'd expect to find in a town.

Sometimes, there will be ShinyLookingSpaceships alongside dingier ones; usually these new, [[AsceticAesthetic ascetic and shiny ships]] will belong to the [[TheEmpire Galactic Military]] which has access to constantly churning shipyards and the newest heights of technology while the heroes must survive on surplus gear and homegrown repairs. These shiny looking spaceships, however, can denote that the crew piloting these über-ships is formed of [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy completely green recruits]] with no real combat experience, often led by a [[TheNeidermeyer pompous noble]], while the battered ships are piloted by grizzled veterans who can fly circles around them.

* One of the novelisations of ''Series/BattlestarGalactica1978'' series mentions that the eponymous vessel has been in service for ''500 years!'' The small observation dome on top, where courting couples go to gaze at the stars, was originally used to take navigational fixes.

** Eventually, a Minbari character [[DeadpanSnarker dryly observes]] that if humans were allowed to make such decisions, ''every'' starship would only use the colors grey or green. Suffice to say, even where technology isn't a limiting factor, the humans and the Minbari have ''very'' different cultural preferences to starship design.

** The fact that the Jaeger's opponents, the Kaiju, did not have anything like scars or wounds from Kaiju on Kaiju action was intended to serve as a hint to their [[TheReveal true nature.]]
