* NBC's ''Powerless'', set in the Creator/DCComics Universe, unsurprisingly features this - though in this case it's not so much a ''side effect'' of being a superhero series, as it is half the point of the show: the premise being that the non-superpowered civilians in a superhero world living in [[TheCity major cities]] have to deal with a lot of added inconvenience and potential hazards due to the constant superhero vs supervillain battles going on around them. In this case, the series even goes so far as to pointedly ''not'' use a DCU-famous city that gets the "A List" heroes, like Metropolis or Gotham, but a new one called "[[NonIndicativeName Charm City]]" - which is [[WordOfGod described by the show's staff out-of-universe]] as "the Scranton, PA of the DCU". The citizens are [[NoBigDeal so blase]] about the superpowered battles in their City of Adventure that in the first episode, nobody but out-of-towner Emily finds the battle between Silver Fox and a supervillain to be [[FantasticallyIndifferent of any interest whatsoever]] (instead merely [[BystanderSyndrome being annoyed at the delay caused by their train derailing]]) and in the opening of episode two, a street vendor's immediate response to [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight having a flying supervillain chuck a postal box onto his table]], is to pause for a {{Beat}}, and then tell Emily: "We're out of...everything." Yeah, it's [[AffectionateParody that kind of series]].

* 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]].

* Similar to the TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} example above, TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} has ''TabletopGame/{{Necromunda}}'', its equivalent of Mordheim. Taking place on the [[SingleBiomePlanet Hive World]] of the same name, it's justified in that, like all Hive Worlds, the actual planet has been polluted so terribly by eons of industrial production that humans now live in tremendous ant-hive like buildings that serve as the new equivalent of ''continents''.

* Arkham in ''TabletopGame/ArkhamHorror''. Home to a number of cults, the infamous [[CthulhuMythos Miskatonic University]], and far too many eldritch secrets. Most of the expansions add to the madness and make Arkham home to things like a cursed museum exhibit or the only attempted performance of a BrownNote play. A few involve mysteries outside of Arkham and add AdventureTowns to the game.
