* A rather literal example is with New Taipei City, which is not the same city as Taipei the capital of Taiwan and in fact both completely surrounds it and is more populous. It was formerly known as Taipei County (still a separate legal entity from Taipei) but got upgraded to the status of special municipality in 2010 and took the current name so that [[OneSteveLimit there weren't two cities called Taipei, one of which is the capital and one isn't]]. Its offical name in Mandarin is Xinbei ("New North"), which just plays into this trope again ("Taipei", or "Taibei" if you go strictly by [[ChineseLanguage Hanyu Pinyin]], translates as "Tai(wan's) North"[[note]]Many of Taiwan's cities are similarly unimaginatively named - there's also Taichung (Taiwan Middle), Tainan (Taiwan South), and Taitung (Taiwan East)[[/note]]).
** Since Taipei County is effectively becoming the suburb of Taipei city, people considered merging it with Taipei City and Keelung City altogether ([[WhatTheHellIsChaohu Mainland China do such thing frequently]]) but KMT-DPP rivalary prevented that (At that time the city is pro-KMT and county leaning DPP) so we get the above.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has New Tokyo-'''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion 3]]''', an example of the second type: since the original Tokyo was nuked and submerged, and the city of Matsumoto was converted into the new capital and renamed "New Tokyo-'''2'''", New Tokyo-3 (commonly just Tokyo-3 in English) is a ground-up purpose-built city over the location of Hakone that is intended to eventually replace Tokyo-2 as a capital city (persumably after all the [[{{Kaiju}} Angels]] are defeated). Also, the fleet in episode 8 moored in "New Yokosuka" (formerly Odawara), which serves as a port for the landlocked Tokyo-3.
