* ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'''s "Frankie and Ellie Get Lost" has Jay decide, when his wealthy parents are lost at sea and presumed dead, to divest the family's holdings in corrupt businesses and from there turns his inheritance towards literally cleaning up New York City's garbage and graffiti. It works; unfortunately the city officials decide to thank him with a ''ticker tape parade'' and from there the celebration leaves the town just as grimy as it was before.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Crackdown}}'', the city's police force barely is able to hold the line at their own headquarters. [[SuperSoldier The Agent]] must go through the city, killing the leaders of the three gangs who rule the city and their lieutenants. [[spoiler: It becomes a subversion when it's revealed the Agency [[EvilPlan allowed the gangs to run roughshod, so they'd be able to assert a despotic regime once they clean out the gangs.]]]]

* In a sci-fi comedy ''Arm of the Law'' by Creator/HarryHarrison, an android police officer is assigned to a police station of BadCopIncompetentCop types in a WretchedHive on Mars. He promptly arrests the local crime boss for an outstanding warrant, forcing the other officers to help him clean up the town (which the android does most efficiently) because they're afraid the crime boss [[YouHaveFailedMe will have them tortured and killed once he gets out of jail]].
