* The basic premise of the early ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' games involve a big city boy/girl who just moved to a rural town to inherit a rundown farm whose owner had recently passed away. The goal of the game is to settle down in said farm and try to restore it to its former glory, although some versions allow the player to refuse the farm offer, which would immediately lead to a game over.

Plot B2: Alice ''used'' to be a Country Mouse but moved to the big city and has now become a City Mouse with a glamorous life and career, and is usually embarrassed by her humble origins. Then she's forced to go back home for some reason, either temporarily or permanently depending on the story. Similar to Plot B, although there will usually be a rekindled forgotten ChildhoodFriendRomance as well.

BlitzEvacuees is often a very specific form of plot B (and one of the few kinds where the city-loving characters in the country might end up going back -- after the war is over, of course). Compare {{Arcadia}}.

{{Arcadia}}. There's a strong tie to NewMediaAreEvil too, the city representing new media in this case.

* Done realistically in ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut''. Riley and her family have to move from Minnesota to San Francisco and part of Riley's growing depression is her missing things from home. But the things she misses are not tied directly to the country - namely her friends and certain activities she did - and the city people aren't portrayed nastily at all. Her character development comes with readjusting to the new environment.

\n* ''{{Film/Twister}}'' evokes this with Bill - who is a country boy that became a scientist. The love triangle is between his stylish CityMouse of a fiancee and his down-to-earth country ex-wife. The country girl wins out, though at least the fiancee isn't portrayed badly.
