* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' [[CityWithNoName never names the city]] (according to [[AllThereInTheManual supplementary material somewhere]] it's Jump City) but considering the its west coast location and the great big bridge, it's probably San Francisco (which it is, for the comics' counterpart). The [[WestCoastTeam Titans East]] take up shop in Steel City, which seems to be UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}} (either that, or perhaps Pittsburgh).

* The writers of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' love to do this. The capital city of Canterlot is named for Camelot from the Authurian legends (and the design is inspired my Minas Tirith in ''Literature/TheLord of the Rings''), but other cities and nations have pony-themed names like Fillydelphia (Philadelphia), Manehattan (Manhattan), Las Pegasus (Las Vegas), Vanhoover (Vancouver), and Saddle Arabia (Saudi Arabia); the locations that have been featured in the series closely match their RealLife counterparts. One example: the Haypacking District features Brownstone architecture and is the fashion center of Manehattan, just like the Meatpacking District in Manhattan.

* The ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' series is set in the author's hometown of Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture, with the serial numbers filed off: Kanji in actual place names (or their readings) are changed -- the Uegahara Pirates of Kwansei Gakuin University become the ''Kami''gahara Pirates, for instance -- and the name of the actual town is never directly mentioned ("Kitaguchi Station" is ''Nishinomiya'' Kitaguchi Station, and "North High" is Nishinomiya-Kita High School). This is made especially blatant in the anime, where Kyoto Animation saw fit to recreate the ''actual locations'' in and around the city, including undisguised shots of passing Hankyu Railway trains, and the skylines of nearby Osaka and Kobe. Since Nishinomiya is located in the heart of the [[KansaiDialect Kansai]] [[TheIdiotFromOsaka region]] it would run the risk of being stereotyped, but KyoAni's attention to detail actually gives it an "everytown" quality.

* In Jaime Hernandez's ''ComicBook/LoveAndRockets'' stories, the main location of "Hoppers" is a barely-at-all disguised version of Los Bros' hometown of Oxnard, California.

*** This is also enhanced by the producers of each movie: ''Film/BatmanBegins'' and ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' both were filmed in Chicago, while Events in the older {{Superman}} series looked to be shot in New York.

See also HollywoodAtlas, BigApplesauce and FantasyCounterpartCulture. Occasionally involves IstanbulNotConstantinople. Contrast with CityWithNoName, WhereTheHellIsSpringfield and CanadaDoesNotExist when the city's location is deliberately concealed or [[NegativeContinuity seems to contradict itself]]. Also contrast with EverytownAmerica when the location is deliberately made generic.

* Where does ''Manga/KOn'' take place? The town's name never gets mentioned, but judging by the locales it's set in Kyoto; Shugakuin station is clearly recognizable, for instance. The high school is modeled after a renovated elementary school in Toyosato, Shiga, which is not too far from Kyoto either. Still, the makers try to convolute the issue by having the girls go on a ClassTrip to Kyoto, where they are even seen passing Mount Fuji. KyotoAnimation, you're not fooling anybody!

* The town where ''Manga/{{Yotsuba}}'' takes place is never named, but borrows a lot of inspiration from Kiyohiko Azuma's own hometown of Takasago, Hyogo.
