* Genosia was worse than Latveria. A utopia to only the upper class, their cruel apartheid government used mutants as a SlaveRace to maintain a stellar economy. (But it came crashing down after they attracted the ire of the {{X Men}}.)

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': The titular city purports to be a place where animals now live in harmony and anyone can become anything. Actually living there makes one realize how deeply the AnimalJingoism still runs.

* Doctor Doom has created Latveria, among other False Utopias, through the years. He often makes his people trust and worship him, even though he is an outright dictator. Note that he does try to bring peace, but with force.

* ''TheIncredibleHulk'': In one of the comics, Bruce Banner has a dream where all his biggest wishes are true: married to Betty, friend to her father and other former enemies... This is an illusion from his inner monster, the Devil Hulk, in which Bruce could be trapped if he let the devil take over his body. Bruce turned down the offer.

* In Somtow Sucharitkul's ''Inquestor'' series, the man characters serve as Utopia Hunters, elite and near immortal maintainers of galaxy order who investigate all so called utopias and then, having found the hidden flaw, bring the entire edifice down.

* ''Franchise/{{FactionParadox}}'' has the City of the Saved: a galaxy-sized city at the end of time where every human and human-descended individual is resurrected in immortal invulnerable bodies and can live forever in the closest thing the setting has to paradise... unless they're only part-human, [[FantasticRacism in which case they're second-class citizens and are generally thought of as lucky to have got in.]] In addition, humans and posthumans with non-human friends and lovers tend to be tragically disappointed when they realise their loved ones didn't make it into this human-supremacist heaven. House Halfling, the pressure group for part-human rights, explicitly pointed out that the City's culture will stagnate much faster with only human influences and that it is at present a rather unsatisfactory endpoint of history. [[SarcasmMode Fortunately that probably won't matter any more, as someone figured out a way to turn off the immortality, a civil war broke out, and one group's attempt to end it summoned an]] EldritchAbomination [[SarcasmMode from the universe after this one. So that's alright then.]]

* In the webserial ''Literature/{{Sanctioned}}'', independent Scotland is said to be a perfect utopia without homelessness, poverty, bigotry, or pre-meditated crime.
** It seems they cut the crime numbers by legalising all drugs.
** Ashleigh thinks that some people will always end up homeless, due to bad luck and crappy circumstances. She wonders if the homeless are dragged into unmarked government vans.
** Delaney has a theory that [[spoiler:the superhero Glorious was murdered on the orders of the Scottish government because she was regularly meeting a known English spy for kinky sex.]]

* ''Film/TheTrumanShow'': Truman lives in a nice little town, ignoring that it is the biggest studio in the world and that his life is a TV show. Christoff justifies that he won’t free Truman because while in his studio, where everyone protects him and give him an easy life, he will be safe from the evil of reality.

* MagiLabyrinthOfMagic: The University. It's an elitist culture where you have to be strong in ALL stats, but contains many caring individuals and cooperative guilds. Then Aladdin finds the slave pens, who the headmaster declares "are in their place, and even better off than before". And later on the slaves are used to create a titanic EldritchAbomination made of black Rukh, which is basically hate in the form of sprit ravens.

* Skypeia is probably the most peaceful place in the manga, made of clouds with nice people. But they worship an EvilGod who is merely using (and planning to kill) them for its own ends.
