- The Five Forbidden Regions in the Xanth series: the void, the region of water, the region of fire, the region of earth, and the region of air. Each region is filled with terrain and weather that represent it: the region of water, for example, contains a lot of lakes and it rains often.
- Death's Domain and the Palace of Time in Discworld. Both symbolizing their concepts as much as the Anthropomorphic Personifications who inhabit them do.
- Robert Silverberg's novel Son Of Man is made of this.
- There's a universe of shrimp mentioned as a gag on Buffy/Angel.
- In Dungeons & Dragons, there are many of these. The "inner planes" include planes of Air, Earth, Fire, and Water, as well as the planes of "Positive Energy" and "Negative Energy".
- In the Planescape setting, the "outer planes" include a plane representing each of the Character Alignments, and the "inner planes" also include "quasielemental" or "paraelemental" planes such as "the Plane of Dust", "the Plane of Lightning", etc.
- Module WG7 Castle Greyhawk. The Queen of the Honeybee Hive on level 7 opened a gate to the Demi-Plane of Flowers, a gigantic plain covered with every imaginable type of flower and plant.
- 4th Edition takes the elemental planes and mixes them into one plane, the Elemental Chaos.
- All of the Tit ans seen in Scion, as of yet. Of those that haven't been, it's safe to assume that the vast majority also are.
- World of Warcraft hinted at those in the past, but really went nuts with the concept in Cataclysm:
- Deepholm, the plane of Earth, made of mostly shiny rocks and crystals.
- Firelands, the plane of Fire, with lots of magma, ash, lava and hot air.
- Skywall, the plane of Air, consisting of mostly clouds and wind.
- The Abyssal Maw, the plane of water, typical underwater flair everywhere.
- The Legend of Zelda plays this in spades. Every console game has a Forest theme, Fire theme, Water theme, Death theme, and Light theme.
- EverQuest has a bunch of these. Indeed, an entire expansion is called, "The Planes of Power", which contains something like 15 different planes. And there are more planes from other expansions.
- The Family Guy episode "Road to the Multiverse" featured quite a few of these.
- One episode of Fairly Oddparents had several. A character attempting to get to "Fairy World" ended up in "Scary World", "Dairy World", and "Hairy World".
