* 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.
