** 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.

* ''{{Series/Daredevil 2015}}'': Wilson Fisk wants to do this to Hell's Kitchen in particular and all of [[TheBigRottenApple NYC]] in general; justified in that he is from Hell's Kitchen himself and honestly believes his brand of ''organized'' crime and corruption is better than the WretchedHive he perceives his old 'hood to have become.

* The protagonists of ''Literature/TheSecretHistory'' develop an effective plan to take over Hampden town, the bucolic locale of Hampden College -- but it’s all just a chilling

intellectual exercise.

** {{Lampshaded}} in C.S. Lewis’s ''[[Literature/TheSpaceTrilogy Space Trilogy]]''.

to:

** {{Lampshaded}} This is a major plot point in C.S. Lewis’s ''[[Literature/TheSpaceTrilogy Space Trilogy]]''. The reason God focuses so much on earth is because none of the other planets fell; all the others are still aligned with God and it's explicitly stated that if Satan attempts to go further than the moon's orbit, the other ''unfallen'' angels would force him back in. The second book in the trilogy revolves around Satan's attempt to spread his influence to another planet by [[DemonicPossession piggybacking on a space traveler]]. In the ''third'' book, [[spoiler: it turns out that Satan got HoistByHisOwnPetard by doing that. The unfallen angels are forbidden to interfere directly in Earth's affairs... unless the demons were to provoke them, in which case they are allowed to respond.]]

->‘‘"It is only proper that the world be set to rights. However, if we were to unite the entire world the ignorant masses would be unable to keep pace. Therefore, we will start here. And just to be extra prudent and avoid pushing ourselves too hard, we will go one step further and focus here. Conquering one city is a reasonable plan that allows for some leeway for setbacks, don’t you think?"‘‘

{{Supervillain}}s are, as a rule, [[AmbitionIsEvil ambitious]]. From your typical EvilOverlord to a MadScientist to [[PinkyAndTheBrain a pair of lab mice]], any bad guy worth their SpikesOfVillainy will have a grand plan to TakeOverTheWorld.

* Solidus Snake tried to seize Manhattan island in ''MetalGearSolid2'', pulling it "offline" with a high-altitude nuclear strike and frying its electrical grid. This is another of ‘‘Metal Gear’’’s homages to ''Film/EscapeFromNewYork''.
