* In ''CodeGeass'', right before the Battle of Narita, two soldiers monitoring the area are actually in the middle of complaining about how boring their station is when Zero walks in and Geasses them to ignore any unusual activity. So from their point of view, they're right.

* ''The Dark Side of Nowhere'' centers on the protagonist discovering that ''everyone'' in his [[NormanRockwell Norman Rockwell-esque]] town, including himself, is really an alien. The frequent booster shots they've received all their lives have been chemicals to suppress their Adonis-level good looks and blend in with humanity. And the message has just come through that the time has come to gear up for the invasion...

* Moose County, from TheCatWho books, is "400 miles north of everywhere," and is described as an idyllic but boring rural location. The locals insist that crime is something that happens "Down Below," as they refer to the rest of the U.S., despite the fact that Moose County seems to have a per capita murder rate to rival [[MurderSheWrote Cabot Cove]] or [[Literature/MissMarple St. Mary Meade]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' is set in Boston, 200 years after the nuclear apocalypse. In one side quest, you meet a boy who thinks he can see a sea monster. It turns out to be a pre-war submarine, which is still running. If you tell him that it was a submarine, he says "Nothing exciting ever happens here!" Depending on how much time you have been spending on side quests and exploring, it is entirely possible that you will find the quest after Boston has been invaded by an airship full of soldiers in power armour, and maybe even after a nuclear explosion. The boy will still say that nothing exciting ever happens there.
