* ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' [[spoiler: takes this UpToEleven, holding ''all'' of Gotham City, blowing all but one bridge, and warning that any one that leaves or comes will detonate an [[NiceJobBreakingItHero improvised nuclear bomb]]. (ContinuityNod to ‘‘Batman: No Man’s Land’’.) [[BigBad Bane]] and cohorts don’t really want anything than the eventual and total destruction of Gotham--but not before [[BreakTheBadass torturing a crippled Bruce Wayne by letting him watch his city fall apart.]] Bruce gets better.]]

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': There have been several villains who have tried to take over Mega-City One as their main goal. Some have succeeded, albeit temporarily. However, because the Mega Cities are so massively huge it's more Take Over The Country in practice.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/JudgeDredd'': Judge Griffin allies himself with Dredd's EvilTwin Rico to depose the ruling Chief Judge Fargo and dismantle the Council of Five so he can rule Mega-City One alone. [[spoiler:Until Rico betrays Griffin and plots to replace all the Judges with his own clone stock.]]

* UsefulNotes/LosAngeles was the first to fall following Jasmine’s birth on ''{{Series/Angel}}''. Since anyone who gazes upon her immediately becomes her devoted servant, it didn’t take long for her to realize the enormous potential of live television. L.A. is later declared the "First Citadel of Jasmine". This particular example is an InvertedTrope, since [[CrapSaccharineWorld life under Jasmine’s iron fist isn’t so bad]]. (Angelinos are seen wearing pink, listening to "Wouldn’t It Be Nice" by TheBeachBoys, and even rich pricks in [=BMWs=] are happily giving pedestrians the right of way.)

Added DiffLines:

* The limited geographic scope of the series meant that this was the limit of the ambition of ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'' villains. Aside from Mutilor who came from space and therefore introduced a larger scale of action. Even Turmoil who was from some unnamed other country limited her sights to Megakat City.

** The ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' series had you conquering either Liberty City or Vice City. Though ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' upped the ante and gave you three cities to conquer. Interestingly, this is only true of the PS2 trilogy; earlier titles (and the ones to follow) focus on just scraping by in the criminal underworld, usually resulting in fleeing town altogether.

** Although predating Third-Person Sandbox Games. ''VideoGame/{{Gangsters}}'' for many PC gamers in the late 90's get to play as mobsters in the TheRoaringTwenties. The very whole game and concept is to TakeOverTheCity by any means necessary.
