Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/StainesDownDrains'': Well, 'Drainage System of Adventure'. Almost the entire series takes place inside the town's drains.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Franchise/PrinceOfPersia'' series loves using this trope to exploit [[LeParkour its gameplay]]. The original ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia1'' was set entirely in one, with the Prince going from the bottom to the top through traps and enemies to rescue the princess. Later entries, particularly the Sands of Time saga, would have [[CityOfAdventure Cities of Adventure]] filled with Buildings of Adventure that the player spends large chunks of time in.

Added DiffLines:

* The action (such as it is) of ''Series/{{Nightingales}}'' never moves out of the office block, and frequently never moves out of a single room.


* This also applies to the adult-oriented parody series of the above, ''WesternAnimation/{{Sealab 2021}}''. One episode even specifically advertised it as such to get tourists to come to Sealab, which angered Quinn because Murphy took out a loan with Sealab as collateral to make said advertisement, meaning they have to follow through on hosting tourists to keep Sealab from foreclosing.

* ''{{Webcomic/Buildingverse}}'' got its name because of this trope. When ''{{Webcomic/Roommates}}'' began it was set in a single apartment building (#JustForFun/FortyTwo). But as the series [[ContinuityCreep progressed]] and the 'verse grow there were more and more things added to the [[CityOfAdventure town]] (First an ExtranormalInstitute (St. Jude University) then restaurants (Sakura Sushi, Convenient Café) etc.), and story lines even outside of that from Oz to Paris. So currently we have a subversion.
