* The beginning of ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'' sees the player barely surviving a terrible zeppelin crash. Interestingly, it seems heavier than air ships have a shorter than real-life span of use in ''Arcanum'', as the before mentioned zeppelin was the first of its kind and on its maiden voyage, but was destroyed with stolen bi-planes (succeeding on one quest and providing proof the bi-planes flew insures their continued existence).

* The ''VideoGame/CrimsonSkies'' game is alternate history in the DieselPunk genre that has Zeppelins as flying aircraft carriers/battleships.
* Rowan software's 1995 alternate universe flight simulator ''Air Power: Battle in the Skies'' takes place on a marshy continent with little in the way of roads and railways. Warfare is conducted mainly with aircraft and zeppelins. The player commands a fleet of heavily armed war zeppelins, including the [[AirborneAircraftCarrier aircraft carrier]] which serves as the main base for the player's fighters and bombers.

* Zeppelins seem rather abundantly used by villains in ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' series, mostly by the evil DOATEC. Their universe seems to be a mix and match of different eras. At DOATEC, it seems to be a big city with elements of CyberPunk, then there's the [[GratuitousNinja ninja clan villages]] which seem to be stuck in [[MedievalStasis feudal Japan]]. Oh, and [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs dinosaurs still roam the jungles]] for some reason. To top it all off, now there's a time travelling [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Spartan]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', a subversion is used as one of the major twists of the series. Our introduction to [[spoiler: the nation of Marley]] is a young [[spoiler: Grisha Yeager]] watching a Zeppelin pass overhead as it prepares to land. [[spoiler: The world outside the Walled nation is equivalent to the early 20th century, with Zeppelins still the preferred method of air travel while airplanes are beginning to see increased use]].

* ''Plan 7 of 9 from Outer Space'' by Odon. In the {{zeerust}} future of 2009, [[Film/TheAdventuresOfCaptainProton Captain Proton]] uses a vacuum-dirigible to travel across MysteriousAntarctica -- vacuum being literally lighter-than-air gives it lift, and propulsion is via corkscrew driving planes encircling the dirigible.

* A short story that helped set this trope in stone is [[Creator/HowardWaldrop Howard Waldrop's]] "Custer's Last Jump". Presented as a historical article from an alternate timeline, it deals with a Battle of the Little Big Horn fought between biplanes piloted by Sioux warriors and George Armstrong Custer's airship-borne paratroopers. The "Notes" mention a famous film made about the battle: ''They Died With Their Chutes On''.

* Featured ''very'' prominently in ''TabletopGame/DystopianWars'', often as air carriers for flying machines and as the occasional flying fortress bristling with guns. Not only that, they're often [[TakenUpToEleven up to five times as large as Hindeburg]]... And there's more than one in every army.
