**The first movie in particular plays with this trope. While at the beginning of the movie and in all of the "Real World" scenes the scenery is dark and depressing, all of the scenes in the Matrix after Neo is awakened take place in broad daylight with only moderate cloud cover.

If our story takes place in the future, it will be a {{dystopia}} full of hideous dark {{Star Scraper}}s (symbolizing class oppression) and other signs of [[BadFuture a future gone wrong]]. If it takes place in the past, the City Noir of choice will probably either be [[LondonTown industrial revolution-era London]] or a [[FantasyCounterpartCulture fantasy counterpart]] version of it. Facsimiles of cities like New York and Chicago during the Great Depression might alternately pop up, although for American audiences they may well be shot through the NostalgiaFilter.

**Batman The Animated Series is especially notable in this regard. The animators even developed a new kind of ArtDeco dubbed "Dark Deco" to make Gotham look as sinister and oppressive as possible.

* ''VideoGame/{{Condemned}}'''s Metro City is somewhat of a {{deconstruction}} of this trope.

* City 17 in ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'' was this on concept art in early stage of development, and it picked up a strong Eastern European inflection in the final work.

* The urban locations in Kingpin: Life of Crime. Features everything between desolate ghettos and classy, but equally vile Radio City with it's Art Nouveau architecture (bearing a suspicious resemblance to some places in ''Film/{{Payback}}''). Also noteable for a weird mix of modern as well as 20's, 30's and steampunk-scifi styles (Cypress Hill music, Tommyguns, and thugs with cybernetic facial modifications all in the same setting!)

* The music video for [[Music/{{Bush}}]]'s [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FExyoAh6Ng "Greedy Fly"]] is CityNoir mixed with MindScrew. For added points, it was filmed in the same building as ''Film/{{Se7en}}''.

* [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-zagged]] by ''Anime/TekkonKinkreet's'' Treasure Town. It doesn't really look like a City Noir during the day -- on account of all the sunshine and life. It is much less depressing than most examples, but it's definitely run-down, dangerous, and filled with people who can't stand living there. Ironically, the villain's plan is to turn the whole place into a family friendly amusement part by flat out murdering any hoodlums and street kids who don't follow the program.
