* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'': St. Canard was a cross between San Francisco and [[Creator/WaltDisney Disney's]] rendition of [[Comicbook/{{Batman}} Gotham City]] - complete with its own RoguesGallery of villains like: Megavolt, The Liquidator, and [[EvilCounterpart Nega Duck.]] And it was always up to Darkwing Duck and his trusty {{sidekick}}, [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales Launchpad McQuack]], to stop them.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'': Republic City was already being compared to [[Comicbook/{{Batman}} Gotham]], from the promos alone. Sure enough, in its first season, the city's reputation for peace and equality [[ElementalPowers for benders]] and [[{{muggles}} non-benders]] soon gave way to its seedy underbelly. Korra found herself having to contend with [[{{ninja}} The Equalists]], whose public face was a nonviolent protest group, but was really a terrorist cell, secretly plotting to takeover the city. Plus, crorrupt politicians, like [[spoiler: [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Tarrlok]]]].

* Death City, NV, of ''Manga/SoulEater'' is not only the place where the Shibusen (or DWMA, if you're watching the dub) is located, it also holds the significance of being the place where Asura was trapped and, as such, is a commonly targeted place by whoever wants to set him free ([[spoiler:which Medusa eventually manages to do, indirectly]]). And while the students and their weapon partners have to travel around the world for their field assignments, holding the fort is also of utmost importance.

* Both [[Series/{{Arrow}} Star City]] and [[Series/TheFlash2014 Central City]] in the ''Franchise/{{Arrowverse}}'' count.

* The ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona'' series has Mikage-cho in ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'', Sumaru City in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'', Port Island in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', Inaba in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' and UsefulNotes/{{Tokyo}} in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}''. Each serves as the base for your exploits, where you meet various interesting team mates and allies, and stumble upon supernatural adventures.
** Mega Ten in general seems to love this trope, mainly due to it's UrbanFantasy stylings. In fact, many of the games take place in [[TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse Tokyo]] (or [[AfterTheEnd what's left of it anyway]]). Games that don't take place in a city are the exception rather than the norm.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', Dimsdale became this when Timmy wished for a comic book world, and again in the "Abra-Catastrophe" movie when the entire planet became a jungle world after Bippy the chimpanzee ate some of the rule-free wish muffin.

* ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'': Cape Suzette was often plagued by Don Karnage and his henchmen, with [[AcePilot Baloo]] and [[TheLancer Kid]] [[RedBaron "Cloudkicker"]] being the only thing standing in their way. Which is aptly conveyed [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tKHlukQTik in its intro]], as well.

* [[TheQuestportChronicles Questport]] is a village, rather than a city, but has enough adventure and oddness for a city a dozen times its size.
