* The view from Babe's window at the animal hotel in ''{{Babe}}: Pig in the City'' includes the Hollywood sign, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Sydney Opera House, the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, the Rio de Janiero statue of Christ, the World Trade Center, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, what appears to be a Moscow cathedral, and possibly other famous landmarks. Signage in the film indicates the city Babe visits is called "Metropolis", which has a Metropolis Gun Club and Metropolis Institute of Medicine.

* ''DaveBarry's Only Travel Guide You'll Ever Need'' has diagrams labeled "Map of Downtown Vienna," "Map of Downtown London," "Map of Downtown Paris," "Map of Downtown Berlin or Munich," "Map of Downtown Ireland," and "Map of Downtown Cairo," which are obviously the same silly drawing. The channel which runs down the middle of the drawing is triply labeled: "Seine River," "Thames River," "Nile River."
* The city of Ankh-Morpork in Terry Pratchett's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' series is one such city, in a CultureChopSuey sort of way. Clearly identifiable inspirations that stay prominent in multiple books include 18th to 19th century {{London}} and UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity for the economy and culture, [[MerchantCity Renaissance-era]] [[CityOfCanals Venice]] for the system of government, ''{{Seattle}}'' of all places for the geography and occasionally {{Paris}} for a bit of variety. But basically, any time Terry Pratchet feels like doing a WholePlotReference to a work of fiction set in a particular city, he''ll find some way to squeeze the necessary architecture and cultural traditions into Ankh-Morpork somewhere.

* Parodied in an episode of ''KidsNextDoor''. Numbah 2 wakes up to a vista that features pretty much ''every'' famous landmark there is; he suddenly catches onto something being off by the time he gets to the Sphinx. Turns out to be a miniature golf course in a basement with all the landmarks having been properly shrunken down along with Numbah 2 himself.
