* ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'': The city of Baldur's Gate itself, naturally, as in the TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms.
* ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII'': The FirstTown of Athkatla, which is also one of the most active areas for quests and encounters.
** You may be attacked by low-level muggers every once in a while.
** Any mages caught casting any form of magic are imprisoned and horrifically tortured for the rest of their lives. Or simply murdered, as in the case with the player character (unless you manage to just keep on killing Cowled Wizards until they give up).
* ''VideoGame/BaldursGateIIThroneOfBhaal'': Saradush, although it's a lot smaller than Baldur's Gate or Athkatla.



* [[Creator/HPLovecraft Dunwich, New Hampshire,]] only a couple miles from [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the WhateleyUniverse.

* Seasons 1 and 2 of ''Roleplay/TheMassiveMultiFandomRPG'' are set in a city which keeps shifting its layout, and the presence of large crowds of disparate individuals from all over the multiverse guarantees adventure, in addition to the daily "curses" which affect the inhabitants in various ways.
* ''Roleplay/CityOfLostCharacters'' is set in an extradimensional city which, similarly to the ''Massive Multi-Fandom RPG'' setting above, is changed to fit a new theme every day, and contains a large crowd of exotic, eccentric and dangerous individuals from various universes.

* Befitting that its borrows a lot from VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto (as listed directly above), {{Crackdown}} takes place in 'Pacific City', and seems to be either inspired by, or borrows the idea of a multi-island approach, for geography.

* NBC's ''Powerless'', set in the Creator/DCComics Universe, unsurprisingly features this - though in this case it's not so much a ''side effect'' of being a superhero series, as it is half the point of the show: the premise being that the non-superpowered civilians in a superhero world living in [[TheCity major cities]] have to deal with a lot of added inconvenience and potential hazards due to the constant superhero vs supervillain battles going on around them. In this case, the series even goes so far as to pointedly ''not'' use a DCU-famous city that gets the "A List" heroes, like Metropolis or Gotham, but a new one called "[[NonIndicativeName Charm City]]" - which is [[WordOfGod described by the show's staff out-of-universe]] as "the Scranton, PA of the DCU". The citizens are [[NoBigDeal so blase]] about the superpowered battles in their City of Adventure that in the first episode, nobody but out-of-towner Emily finds the battle between Silver Fox and a supervillain to be [[FantasticallyIndifferent of any interest whatsoever]] (instead merely [[BystanderSyndrome being annoyed at the delay caused by their train derailing]]) and in the opening of episode two, a street vendor's immediate response to [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight having a flying supervillain chuck a postal box onto his table]], is to pause for a {{Beat}}, and then tell Emily: "We're out of...everything." Yeah, it's [[AffectionateParody that kind of series]].
