* [[Creator/HPLovecraft Dunwich, New Hampshire,]] only a couple miles from [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the Literature/WhateleyUniverse.
** Also, Boston and New York City. Whenever one of the characters goes to either place, something happens.
** As well as Los Angeles, since that's where Phase now lives when she's not at school.

* The eponymous city in ''VideoGame/FallenLondon'', the [[UndergroundCity underground capital]] of a failing British Empire, is home to (among other things) HumanoidAbomination {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s with an inexplicable fondness for romance novels, ambassadorial missions from both [[LegionsOfHell Hell]] and an [[HiddenElfVillage isolationist nation of immortals]], a smuggling ring run by a thirteenth century Mongolian princess, a [[BodySurf body-surfing]] JackTheRipper, a movement of BombThrowingAnarchists who want to [[RageAgainstTheHeavens overthrow the gods]], and [[CityOfSpies hundreds if not thousands of spies]].

* True, it's not strictly a city. But the mythical "Bear Country" where the main characters live in the ''BerenstainBears'' series of picture books by Jan and Stan Berenstain almost certainly qualifies, as it is ostensibly an isolated rural community but features many familiar trappings of urban and suburban life (such as a shopping mall) as well as more nostalgic and fanciful settings, like a dank swamp home to roving teenage hooligans and a woman suspected of being a witch. And Bear Country ''never'' gets boring for Brother and Sister (although, to be sure, when you're a child and are just seeing many things for the first time, it's awfully hard to get bored).

* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'': St. Canard was a cross between San Francisco and [[Creator/WaltDisney Disney's]] rendition of [[Comicbook/{{Batman}} Gotham City]] - complete with its own RoguesGallery of villains like: Megavolt, The Liquidator, and [[EvilCounterpart Nega Duck.]] And it was always up to Darkwing Duck and his trusty {{sidekick}}, [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales Launchpad McQuack]], to stop them.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'': Republic City was already being compared to [[Comicbook/{{Batman}} Gotham]], from the promos alone. Sure enough, in its first season, the city's reputation for peace and equality [[ElementalPowers for benders]] and [[{{muggles}} non-benders]] soon gave way to its seedy underbelly. Korra found herself having to contend with [[{{ninja}} The Equalists]], whose public face was a nonviolent protest group, but was really a terrorist cell, secretly plotting to takeover the city. Plus, crorrupt politicians, like [[spoiler: [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Tarrlok]]]].

* Death City, NV, of ''Manga/SoulEater'' is not only the place where the Shibusen (or DWMA, if you're watching the dub) is located, it also holds the significance of being the place where Asura was trapped and, as such, is a commonly targeted place by whoever wants to set him free ([[spoiler:which Medusa eventually manages to do, indirectly]]). And while the students and their weapon partners have to travel around the world for their field assignments, holding the fort is also of utmost importance.

* Both [[Series/{{Arrow}} Star City]] and [[Series/TheFlash2014 Central City]] in the ''Franchise/{{Arrowverse}}'' count.

* The ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona'' series has Mikage-cho in ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'', Sumaru City in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'', Port Island in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', Inaba in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' and UsefulNotes/{{Tokyo}} in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}''. Each serves as the base for your exploits, where you meet various interesting team mates and allies, and stumble upon supernatural adventures.
** Mega Ten 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.
