''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' includes a lot of worldbuilding in the form of jokes and characters making offhand references to events and people in the year 3000, as well as the highly-detailed cultures of various planets and alien species. There are also plenty of visual gags adding to the futuristic setting, like messages in a fictional alien language that are seen in various locations throughout the series.

* Every ''Franchise/MadMax'' film has been consistent (even if there are {{Continuity Snarl}}s that George Miller doesn't really care about), and each film has contributed to the post-apocalyptic world Miller has built, both being similar and yet giving a completely different view each time.

This was one of the biggest points of acclaim that ''[[Film/MadMaxFuryRoad Fury Road]]'' received, with its now well-known ShowDontTell approach building everything with virtually no exposition.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' goes in for this in a big way as part of a slow build up, with quiet emphasis on the ButterflyEffect caused by the story's premise and events thereafter, integrating a number of fictional universes and remixing them to create a unique world, going into detail about how this affected the history of the world and various characters' pasts and personalities.

* ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureauTheOtherSideOfTheSpectrum'' went from a simple TCB DeconstructionFic to a truly massive group project thanks to its massive MythArc, occasional uses of {{Lower Deck Episode}}s and AscendedFridgeHorror, co-authors wishing to avert CreatorProvincialism by exploring the war effort as it happens across the globe, and exploring the inner workings of the numerous factions and groups operating in the war and their [[MoralityKitchenSink moral standings]].
* ''Fanfic/SoulEaterTroubledSouls'' worldbuilds the ''Manga/SoulEater'' universe as much as it can. Its [[Fanfic/SoulEaterZeta prequel]] is just icing on the cake.
* ''Fanfic/TheElementsOfFriendship'' has plenty, moreso than the television series. References are made to creatures and nations that simply do not exist in the show's canon, as well as a [[UsefulNotes/ColdWar Cold War]] between Equestria and the Griffon nation of Orlalvov.
