* The ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'' storyline "Come Swing From My Branches" is set in New Orleans. Tip goes partying, while Sweetheart and Unity meet a GeniusLoci of the bayou, and a voodoo priest who is really annoyed to be in the middle of a ZombieApocalypse, because that's ''not'' what voodoo's about at all.

-->'''Nanny Ogg''': They say if you can't have a good time in Genua, you're probably dead. You can probably have a bit of quiet fun even if you ''are''dead, in Genua.

* Most of the ''Literature/{{Illuminated}}'' series takes place in New Orleans. While the city tends to attract demons, mages, and other varieties of the supernatural, the setting itself is faithful to the present, and the series averts almost every trope usually associated with the city.

* ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'' spin-off ''Series/TheOriginals'' primarily focuses on a New Orleans run by three factions: humans, vampires, and witches. The constant influx of tourists provides the vampires with a plentiful source of blood and most [[PragmaticVillainy feed without killing since they do not want the tourists to stop coming]]. The witches draw enormous amounts of power from the city's graveyards where generations of witches are buried. The werewolves used to be a major faction in the city but a curse drove them into the swamps.

To present an idea about how the city is usually portrayed, '''NFL Films''' on the Saints' 2009 Super Bowl Run is the most accurate depiction of the city. In other portrayals, the town is always surrounded by swamps and alligators. The swamps, of course, are always a mere two minute jog from the French Quarter (which tends to comprise the entire city): a convenient change of scenery for the protagonist chasing a bad guy. Said chase scene will inevitably run into a Mardi Gras parade, because ItsAlwaysMardiGrasInNewOrleans, usually accompanied by the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w58XVr5YE8w Second Line march]] (a.k.a. That Mardi Gras song that everybody knows but hardly anybody can name). Somehow, the city's entire black population--which is always [[MonochromeCasting significantly smaller]] than in real life--is either a [[HollywoodVoodoo voodoo priest]] or related to one, and you can always expect a reference to the city's famous cooking, and I gerr-on-tee at least one local will have a Creole accent thicker than gumbo.
