* 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.

* 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.
