** ''{{Blame}}'' and Tsutomu Nihei's works (''Biomega'', and ''Abara'') could be the manga counterpart for this. There's enough vast, ruined cityscapes to.. well, cover the [[CrapsackWorld planet]]. Definitely an AuthorAppeal.

* ''TokyoMagnitude80'' has this in abundance, including the opening and ending themes. * ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' does this in [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090407034337/tsubasa/images/0/0f/Tokyo_country_scenery.jpg Acid]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/338-23960-15/tsubasa-reservoir-chronicles/chapter-107.html Tokyo]].

* ''{{Dorohedoro}}'' shows quite a lot of details for its cities. Being mostly a CrapsackWorld, it is no surprise that there are quite a lot of corpses (and often less pleasant things) decorating it, and sometimes corpses walking in it.

* ''BarefootGen'' depicts Hiroshima during and after the atomic bombing. * ''BattleAngelAlita''. Countless detailed scenes of the Scrapyard and the surrounding desert wastes. So relentless is the decay (and fastidious detail) of ''Alita'' that familiarity eventually blurs the line between Scenery Gorn and SceneryPorn.

* Gunsmoke/No Man's Land of ''{{Trigun}}'', being a SingleBiomePlanet, already has long stretches of desert as far as the eye can see, but once flashbacks to the city of July start happening, this comes into play in an even worse way.

* ''MacrossFrontier'' combined this with SceneryPorn with respect to the Frontier fleet quite effectively over the run of the series. The first half of the series has the title Frontier fleet as a beautiful, clean, shiny, and lively city on a bay and quite an impressive WagonTrainToTheStars. There's a whole episode devoted to Sheryl gawking in amazement at every aspect of the fleet's ecosystem and cities. [[WarIsHell Then war happens]], and by the last few episodes half the locations Sheryl visited no longer exist and the main island is a ruin of its former self of apocalyptic proportions. [[spoiler:No exaggeration. By that time, the government had concluded that the fleet's ecosystem had been irreparably damaged, and within a few months it would no longer be able to sustain its population. Cue GrandFinale]]. * In ''ZetaGundam'', Kamille and Quattro enter a space colony that was gassed. The colony has low gravity, so building wreckage and lifeless bodies, including children, float around. Its both disturbing to the audience and Kamille.

* ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' may qualify. The animation was low enough budget that the backgrounds were never exactly detailed, but you still had plenty of crumbling buildings and of course lots and lots of wasteland. The movie had a larger budget, and had several scenes of destruction and desolation, including an oil tanker impaling a skyscraper. That one appeared twice.

* ''WolfsRain'' has quite a few examples, particularly the ruined city in "Scars in the Wilderness". * ''{{Texhnolyze}}'', despite actually being [[SceneryPorn masterfully detailed]], features one of the more extreme examples of the CyberPunk Scenery Gorn setting.

* ''Survival'' by [[{{Golgo 13}} Takao Saitou]] is set in Japan after a devastating earthquake and features lavishly detailed sceneries of destruction and decay on almost every page. * ''ViolenceJack'' is {{Gorn}} on every level, including this one.

* ''CasshernSins'' is yet another example of Scenery Gorn meeting SceneryPorn. The whole world is a desolate hellscape full of sand, rust and ruined buildings, where almost every living thing is dead, and even robots are struggling to survive. But it's all so gorgeously rendered that it manages to make the apocalypse look ''beautiful.''

Added DiffLines:
* ''Manga/SevenSeeds'' repeatedly shows the characters, and reader, [[AfterTheEnd the ruins of their old homes or monuments]]. At least, what's left of them, as most of them are either submerged, crumbling apart or so corroded due to prolonged contact to sea water that it has the consistency of seaweed upon touch.

** What, no mention of the [[spoiler:Fourth Impact]] in ''3.0''?

Added DiffLines:
* ''Anime/UruseiYatsura'' is well-known for its comedic value, but strangely enough the fourth movie, "Lum the Forever", is full of this. From the junkyard swarming with rats at the very beginning, to the natural disasters, from the futuristic megalopolis in Mendo's dream to the decaying corpse under the cherry tree and the war that's devastating Tomobiki at the end, it can be quite creepy at times.

** Oh, Anime/DragonBallZ '''[[SerialEscalation IN]] [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers SPADES]]'''. To point where the cast would flat out abuse this trope on a regular basis. Seriously, ''nearly every fight'' in that show had a gratuitous amount of SceneryGorn. Quite possible the most infamous example you'll ever see in anime was when Super Saiyan Goku took on Freiza on Namek [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt as it was on the verge of imploding]]. My God. The amount of SceneryGorn that there was in that fight was astonishing.
