* ''Manga/{{Akira}}'' is mostly one long metaphor for the fragility of cities, so...
* ''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.
* ''{{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.
* ''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.
* 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.
* ''Manga/GhostInTheShell'' has lots of urban decay but for the most parts the cities are still inhabitated by lots of normal people, as it was based on the absurdly uncontrolled dense overgrowth of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kowloon_Walled_City Kowloon Walled City]]. The first season of ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' even spends a great deal of time in the clean, bright, and wealthy parts of Japan, but in the second season there are a couple of trips to Tokyo, or rather what's left of it.
* ''{{Laputa}}'', featuring the decay of an ancient fantasy city
* ''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.
** ''{{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.
* The manga version of ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' is known for being lavishly detailed, featuring battlefields littered with corpses mangled in different ways. It's a CrapsackWorld full of misery and death, and the art does not flinch from depicting it.
* In the ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' manga, we are informed that the lab of Orochimaru that Snake is headed to was for researching the Cursed Seal and this is accompanied by a lovely [[http://read.mangashare.com/Naruto/chapter-349/page010.html page-and-a-half layout]] of one of the escaped subject killing a dozen researchers with their blood all over the walls (including one whose head he just crushed into a wall). In the anime, [[{{Bowdlerised}} we only see half of the bodies]] and [[BloodlessCarnage there isn't any blood]].
** Kishimoto is rather good at this. [[spoiler: We get to see the after effects of Madara's ColonyDrop, shinobi crushed and laid scattered over the landscape as the smoke clears. Oh, not only that, what happened to the Kages that Madara did...well...and that's not even going into Obito's flashback!]]
* ''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]].
* In ''Anime/ErgoProxy'' there are frequent shots of scenery gorn related to humans abandoning their cities and moving into massive domes.
* The first minute of ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion 1.0'' is nothing but this. Not to mention that in the entire series (both ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and ''Rebuild of Evangelion'') almost every time an Angel has been defeated, we get a nice shot full of this, to show all the massive damage in its detail.
** After Rei attempts to [[TakingYouWithMe take down Zeruel with an N2 mine]] in ''2.0'', we're treated to a lengthy shot of a ruined Geofront that includes fallen buildings, burnt trees, and a few charred corpses.
** What, no mention of the [[spoiler:Fourth Impact]] in ''3.0''?
** ''Anime/EndOfEvangelion'' also took the time to do this at the end with [[spoiler:Shinji and Asuka sitting on the shore, watching the red sea with GNR's giant, unmoving head in the distance.]]
* ''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.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'': This is the result of Walpurgisnacht. And, depending on how you feel about industrial district, many other locations could qualify. We see the end result in episode 10. This one hits particularly hard because mere hours after the episode aired, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_T%C5%8Dhoku_earthquake_and_tsunami well...]] it caused the two remaining episodes to be declared TooSoon.
* ''Manga/DragonBall'', as soon as the cast learns how to blow things up.
** 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 one of the best examples of SceneryGorn you'll ever see in anime was when [[SuperMode Super Saiyan]] Goku took on [[BigBad 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.
* ''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.
* ''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.''
* ''LightNovel/AccelWorld'' can run into this sometimes. The stages in the Accelerated World are selected at random and essentially apply a skin to a digital version of the local surroundings. The ''End of Century'' and ''Weathered'' stages are made of SceneryGorn and get worse as the combatants fight and frequently damage the scenery even more. Especially when one of them is [[MoreDakka Niko]].
* ''[[Manga/MagicKnightRayearth Magic Knight Rayearth II]]'' has a lot of focus on the now-ruined and crumbling landscape of Cephiro, which has been reduced from a sprawling and vibrant world to a small circle of barren and twisted rock.
* ''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.
