* In ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManUnlimited'', the New York City of Counter-Earth is home to the central laboratory/control center of the High Evolutionary, from which he oppress humanity in favor of his [[BeastMan Bestials]] and conducts genetic experiments on random humans. A hyper-advanced city of towers that stretch into the stratosphere, the oppressed humans live in overcrowded, dark, dirty slums on the ground level, all whilst potentially unstable robot guards patrol ceaselessly. Every human is also outfitted with a tracking implant, so they cannot hide if they commit a crime or try to rebel - the Human Revolution has jamming tech but its spotty at best.

The Telltale Games play with both its older image and with gentrification, the latter being directly referenced by the reforming of Grandpa Stinky's dive bar into a trendy modern one run by his Granddaughter, which the lead characters [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks lament]].
