** Justified in ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' and ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'', as Terra Venture and Corinth are the only cities in at ''least'' a hundred-mile radius - Terra Venture is a traveling space colony and there's nothing outside the city but the empty expanse of space; while Corinth is ''the only city left on earth'', the rest of the planet being a bombed-out wasteland.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': the titular Deep Space Nine space station near the independent planet of Bajor acts as this espeically as the nearby [[spoiler: wormhole]] provides a PlotMagnet to attract others to a space station.

* Academy City in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex''. The city is famous for grooming powerful power users, but it also has a dark side. The "questionable" research that's done at the city leads to many story arcs in the anime, and is enough to for a complete spin off: ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun''. They're under international law, which apparently explains why this is considered "legal" there. The city is also far ahead of the outside world in terms of technology, and they have to use this to their advantage in order to make sure more unruly Espers (and powerful) don't go on a {{rampage}}. This may also fall under AcademyOfAdventure as Academy City is made up of dozens of different schools.
