* In ''[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-29997/Katrina+BTVS+Builders+Junkyard+Dog.htm The Builders]]'', the 24/7 bus route in [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Sunnydale]] is one of the only places in town (besides Willy's Bar) that is safe from supernatural attacks, whether someone is on the bus or just walking the route. As a result, even in day time there's demons riding on the back of the bus ([[WeirdnessCensore Sunnydale Syndrome]] keeps people from noticing they're not human).

Breaking the rules of neutrality and nonviolence (including instigating others) can lead to banishment and being blacklisted as a warlock. Blacklisted magic users are stated to have a life expectancy of months as dictators, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive corrupt corporate executives]], and others know no one will come to help them. Even ComicBook/DoctorFate makes sure to follow the rules, even if he comes across his archenemy. [[WhatAnIdiot Which makes Zatanna's continued antagonism of every Chaos aligned magic user there idiotic in the extreme]]. [[/folder]]

* In the ''Series/MadamSecretary'' episode "Blame Canada", the Canadian ambassador allows Secretary of State Elizabeth [=McCord=] to meet directly with her Iranian counterpart using the Canadian embassy in D.C. as neutral territory. They would otherwise not have been able to meet privately and salvage the nuclear talks.

added more information about Lake Char­gogg­a­gogg­man­chaugg­a­gogg­chau­bun­a­gung­a­maugg. Also corrected the spelling. I used to live near there, you see.

* The name of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Chaubunagungamaug Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg]] in Massachusetts means "Fishing Place at the Boundaries -- Neutral Meeting Grounds". Locals enjoy messing with tourists by telling them that it means "you fish on your side of the lake, we'll fish on our side of the lake, and nobody will fish in the middle."

* There are several such zones in ''{{Sekirei}}'', usually owned by [[MegaCorp MBI]] and used to keep their game of ThereCanBeOnlyOne running smoothly. Miya strictly enforces a "No Fighting" rule at Izumo Inn, and the GenreSavvy villains steer clear of that area.

* Mr. Lee's Greater Hong Kong in ''SnowCrash''''Literature/SnowCrash'', business-owned enclaves where weapons are forbidden, and they have enough weapons of their own to make sure the rule is followed.

* In ''ASongOfIceAndFire'', anyone shedding blood within the Dothraki city of Vaes Dothrak is put to death. Shopkeepers have found a loophole keep enforcers armed with silk scarves to punish thieves instead - if a person is strangled, no blood is spilt. [[spoiler:StupidEvil Prince Viserys thinks this allows him to threaten the Dothraki without consequence, as no-one can harm him. Instead they break his arms and pour a pot of molten gold over his head.]]

* In ''{{Everworld}},'' Fairy Land seems to function this way, because fairies like money and don't mind where it comes from. For an added bonus, the queen brags that not even [[EldritchAbomination Ka Anor's]] armies will attack them, since he needs their market to supply his troops.

* The NewWorldOfDarkness continues the tradition in ''VampireTheRequiem'', allowing a Prince (or equivalent figure) to declare multiple areas of the city as Elysiums. The Prince of New Orleans uses this as an offensive tactic - his rival unofficially controls the French Quarter, so the Prince keeps declaring parts of it to be Elysium, meaning that every time something bad happens in one of them, his rival loses face for allowing Elysium to be violated.

* In ''WorldOfWarcraft'', the goblins are an independent race and in their cities Horde and Alliance players can trade with each other. Shattrath City houses refugees from both sides and Dalaran City is run by neutral mages; they qualify as well, even going so far as to have an aura forbidding PlayerVersusPlayer combat. The Druid enclave, Moonglade, is also a truce zone for Night Elf and Tauren Druids.

* In the removed PVP worlds in ''RuneScape'', banks and the player's immediate respawn point functioned as these. Though there was a cooldown time between entering the bank while in combat to avoid abusing them. * Several factions in [[NexusWar Nexus Clash]] have made it their mission to organize these in the middle of the unending apocalyptic war in which the series is set. Would-be truce zones tend to explode in a hilarious fashion eventually and as such are regarded as a form of SelfImposedChallenge.

* Standard operating procedure in ''{{Drowtales}}'': when noble clans feud, they are not supposed to interfere with the economy of Chel or kill civilians or slaves. Thus supposedly, the whole market district, Orthorbbae ([[WizardingSchool a Hogwarts - style elite school]]), the Black Dragon tavern, etc. are all safe, neutral territory. Needless to say, this rule has gone ignored on a number of occasions, especially by the AxCrazy Nidraa'chal clan and the fanatical Kyorl'solenurn clan.
