* Despite all the AdventureTowns the Doctor often visits, aliens in ''Series/DoctorWho'' like to invade 20th and 21st century Earth from the Home Counties, usually London. After two consecutive ''Doctor Who'' Christmas Specials bring AlienInvaders to London, the residents turn GenreSavvy and make sure to leave the city at Christmas time.

* Cabot Cove in ''MurderSheWrote.'' They do get Jessica out and about regularly, but there are still an ''awful lot'' of murders in her small hometown -- it's a wonder there's anyone left. After Sheriff Tupper left, his replacement in Cabot Cove (an ex-New Yorker) [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] this.

*** ''Planescape'' also has the "gate towns," which built up around portals between the TrueNeutral plane of the Outlands and the other Outer Planes. Each was meant to allow lower-level players to get a taste of life in the other planes without facing all the risks of actually going to many of them.



** 3rd Edition's ''Epic Level Handbook'' introduced Union, a planar city in the vein of Sigil, but managed by the [[ProudMerchantRace mercane]] and meant to cater to level 21-plus gameplay (when the game had a previous soft cap of level 20). Even the generic CityGuards start at level 14. However, the city didn't have much appeal compared to mainstays like Sigil, partially because of the limited space to cover it in the book and partially because epic-level play didn't catch on too well.



* Sigil of ''Planescape'' fame, being the foremost crossroads of the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' multiverse.

* Sigil of ''Planescape'' fame, being ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'', where one could easily spend over half the foremost crossroads of the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' multiverse.game and to which you periodically returned even when out adventuring in other planes.

* ShinMegamiTensei's ''Persona'' series has Mikage-cho in ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'', Sumaru City in ''{{Persona 2}}'', Port Island in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and Inaba in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''.
** MegaTen 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.

* ''WebVideo/RWBYAbridged'' takes a deconstructive approach to this trope, with Ruby pointing out how such an city could only really exist given the state of affairs is because the city's leaders are horribly incompetent. To whit, the lead bad guy got away on a VTOL aircraft without any interference from law enforcement in the middle of the city, after trying to rob a place that sells weapon's grade materials in a manner not unlike a candy store, and whose sole guardian is a doddering old man. Without competent vigilantes like Ruby, the place would be swept away in a tide of crime.
