* Most cities in ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' could count, although most of the Martian cities are in various states of decline, but New York takes the cake. It's in many ways the same as our universe's New York in 1938, only with even more money thrown into it and enough sky traffic to make it feel like [[StarWars Coruscant]].

[[caption-width-right:350:San Antonio, Texas during Christmas. ]]

In fictional settings authors often decide to make great cites for their work. In "classic" sci-fi the city served as a common trope to be used to represent whatever society that existed. They, when animated, drawn or otherwise shown a DesignStudentsOrgasm usually occurs. This comes in two flavors and is often the capital of TheFederation, TheAlliance, TheEmpire, or TheRepublic. Is usually a CityOfAdventure.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has quite a lot. Eldar cities and the Dark Eldar capital of Commorgah are both very impressive (the former are CrystalSpiresAndTogas style cites housed inside Craftworlds, spacecrafts the size of small moons, the latter is a [[EvilTowerOfOminousness Dark Towers and Spikes]] style city located inside the Webway). Humans have numerous heavily populated worlds with impressive looking cities, but the grand price goes to Holy Terra, seat of the Imperium. The Imperial Palace alone covers most of what used to be Eurasia.

* ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'': [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?order=chapters&id=5 Chel'el'sussoloth]], [[MeaningfulName literally means]] "City of light in the darkness". For LonelyRichKid Ariel, it's a fantasy world beyond her wildest dreams, to GenreSavvy {{Cloudcuckoolander}} Lirel, it's a WretchedHive that also has CrystalSpiresAndTogas... perfect for having AHellOfATime.

* Zaofu in ''Series/TheLegendOfKorra'', a city made entirely of metal. The city is made to look like a congregation of Lotus flowers, that stay open in the day, but are closed by night.
