* Averted in ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'', where most of the action takes place in Toy Dream 35 (formerly Natsumi City). Though everything happening here is justified: it's where main character Kyousuke lives, and [[BigBad the White Queen]] is utterly obsessed with him. As a result, she deliberately directs all of the villains' plans so that he'll get involved.

* ''ComicBook/{{Superlopez}}'': Since Barcelona is where López lives, that's where aliens will land, giant mechas will attack and dastardly supervillains will have their secret lair.

* ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' averts it by having ACROSS try to take over [[NoCommunitiesWereHarmed F City, F Prefecture]] (basically Fukuoka with fewer phonetics).

* Despite appearances, it is subverted in the Mazinger trilogy (''Anime/MazingerZ'', ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' and ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer''). For start with, the Headquarters of the good guys are not in Tokyo (two of them are nearby Mount Fuji, and the third one is on the shore). Therefore, the enemy feels not compelled to exclusively target and attack Tokyo. A lot of Japanese cities are destroyed, ships are sunk in ocean, and often Mazinger Z needed fighting in open sea (and in one chapter of one of the manga alternate continuities, it got deployed in another country). In the Mazinger Z versus Great General of Darkness movie, the Mykene struck New York, London and Moscow before striking Tokyo. The subversion gets enforced in the third series, since [[AlienInvasion the Vegan army]] attacked many countries, not only Japan.

** It's actually a JustifiedTrope in this one. Celtics clarifies that she can sense her head is in Ikebukuro, just not WHERE in Ikebukuro it is.

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', obviously. The first large-scale Ghoul organization, an Invincible [[TheHunter Ghoul Investigator]], a MadScientist, and the only known cases of a HalfHumanHybrid in existence all just happen to live in Tokyo. Vague mentions are given to events in China and Germany, but there is little information about the situations outside of Tokyo.
