* Certain cities, such as Portland, Oregon and Austin, Texas, embrace well-earned reputations as real-life examples of this trope. For instance, many cities have flamboyant homeless transvestites who run for mayor. Only in Austin do they have a volunteer staff and campaign budget, a well reasoned multi-point running platform, participate seriously in public debates, and receive a small but noteworthy percentage of the vote. Meanwhile, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnVjkE87FDY Darth Vader riding a unicycle while playing flaming bagpipes doesn't even cause cars in Portland to slow down and rubberneck.]] Appropriately, one of the mottos of Portland is "Keep Portland Weird." It's also a bit of a RunningGag in the city that no one who lives there bothers watching ''Series/Portlandia'' because they've already seen it in their every-day lives.

Added DiffLines:

* Ponyville in the story ''Fanfic/ADream''. Current residents include demons, cyborgs, shapeshifters, creatures from another world, and that's not even including stuff from the show that was weird. It says something about the town that alicorn princess Twilight Sparkle barely even registers on the weirdness scale.

** Played straight(er) in the Ramtop Mountains. According to ''Discworld/WyrdSisters'', when people in Lancre are woken in the night by strange happenings, they say "Oh, it's just another bloody portent," then roll over and go back to sleep. When someone goes for a long walk ''without'' seeing anything spooky, he needs a stiff drink to "unsteady his nerves".

* Super City, the main setting of [[{{Superhero}} superhero]] [[{{WebSerialNovel}} web serial novel]] ''[[{{Literature/GamerGirl2016}} Gamer Girl]]'', is home to [[{{DifferentlyPoweredIndividual}} superhumans]], [[{{Superhero}} superheroes]], [[{{SuperSoldier}} super soldiers]], super spies, [[{{Miko}} shrine maidens]], monsters, [[HunterOfMonsters monster hunters]], ''omnist'' priests, and super lifestylers, a subculture of superhero fans who wear superhero-esque costumes and use [[{{SomethingPerson}} aliases]] as an everyday lifestyle choice. Because of this, strange people and bizarre occurrences have become a part of the citywide status quo.

** Another example of this trope is at the end of the film, when [[spoiler:Queen Narsissa]] crashes a charity benefit called the King and Queen's Ball. She [[spoiler:transforms into a dragon in front of hundreds of people and climbs to the top of the Woolworth building, then falls to her death and explodes into sparkles when she hits the ground.]] The people at the benefit comment on how the organizers "really went all-out on the floor-show this year."

* From the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode ''The Brave And the Bold'', as a gorilla hijacks a car, how does the driver reacts? "Stop him! My insurance doesn't cover a second driver!" Then again, with all the superpowered hijinks happening in the DCAU, maybe citizens just became absolutely blasé about it to the point nothing fazes them anymore.
