* ''TabletopGame/UnknownArmies'' has two different versions: the [[{{Whatevermancy}} Urbanomancer]], an adept who draws power from his home city; and the Avatar of the True King, who in theory can become a FisherKing to a large area but in practice is usually limited to a small realm like a neighborhood or group of followers - maybe even a whole city for powerful True Kings - since in the modern day "all politics are local."

to:

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' had, with ''Dragon Magazine'' (later updated in the Dragon Compendium), the Urban Druid which is clearly this from level 1 to level 3, as they have a favored city they gain boni while in. It gets a bit less clear from level 4 onward, as they get to add another city as favored (culminating in six favored cities at level 20), thus being a Man/Woman/Other of ''Several'' Cities.

** SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor is a mild [[SubvertedTrope subversion]]: he ''does'' genuinely care for Metropolis, and has served as its benefactor in myriad ways. He gives its citizens jobs, organizes charities for the city's welfare and has constructed various important landmarks, including reconstructing Metropolis whenever a supervillain has a field day with the infrastructure. However, he'd be more than willing to personally slit every Metropolis citizen's throat if it furthered his vendetta against Superman.

* In Netflix's ''Series/{{Daredevil}}'' Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk are opposing Men of the City, or more specifically, Hell's Kitchen. Both are concerned with saving the Kitchen, though they both have radically different notions of how to go about doing it; Matt by fighting injustice outside of the law as the Devil of Hell's Kitchen (later Daredevil), and Fisk by controlling New York's criminal underworld and later, by posing as a wealthy philanthropist.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Justice League}}'' episode ''Flash and Substance'': [[TheFlash Flash]] is so loved in Central City, they build a museum to honor the costumed [[SuperSpeed speedster]]. During the episode, he gushes about how much he loves the city, and he even shows he knows ''everyone's '' name within it. When Franchise/{{Batman}} and [[NewGods Orion]] actually are impressed with your dedication, it means something.

** '''{{Franchise/Batman}}'''. You can't even litter in Gotham without Batman kicking your ass. In his public persona as Bruce Wayne, he's the city's biggest philanthropist and provider of jobs. Lampshaded by the Riddler in stories by NeilGaiman who notes about Batman, "That man was the city."
