* The neutral zones in ''VideoGame/BionicCommando.''

to:

* The neutral zones in ''VideoGame/BionicCommando.'''' They had a very strange concept of what qualifies as violating the truce--namely, firing your gun. This is why a Badd knife soldier can rush you (and do damage or kill you!) without getting a bunch of Neutral Zone guards swarming him. However, this means that you can also slap him around with your bionic arm and throw him in a river to his death without penalty, either. [[ExactWords You didn't fire your gun to dispose of him, after all]].

** The fourth edition setting ''San Angelo'' combined this trope with ShrineToTheFallen. One park in the city had memorial statues/plaques for deceased heroes, going back to WorldWarII. The park was accepted by both heroes and villains as a no-fight zone. (Well, ''most'' villains -- the book's cover art showed an exception in progress.)

* The "Rubble Mart" in ''Literature/TheGuardians'' - the centre of trade in a ruined city where rival gang members who'd normally cheerfully kill each other tolerate each other's presence. The last time trouble broke out, the mart was shut down until the perpetrator's bodies were delivered to it. Even AfterTheEnd, trade is an absolute necessity for survival.

* In ''[[Fanfic/GuardiansWizardsAndKungFuFighters Guardians, Wizards, and Kung-Fu Fighters]]'', as part of [[KnowledgeBroker Ludmoore's]] status as officially neutral in all conflicts, his mansion serves as this. He does not allow violence between his visitors, and will throw out and ban any offenders.

** ''Manual of the Planes'' describes the demiplane "Common Ground", a meeting place for deities, where the participants are immune to each other's powers and attacks. It consists of nothing but a large, opulent chamber (150 m in diameter) with a table and chairs around it, as well as portals in the walls to each god's home plane.

Mortals cannot enter due to special wards set around the place to prevent eavesdroppers hoping to learn divine secrets.
** The Spire is this when deities require meeting in larger numbers, as all forms of magic, even divine powers, are negated there. The gods are known to meet in council at regular times. The rilmani tend to guard these meetings from nonmagical assaults, as it is in their best interest to do so, being the ones who enforce the [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil Balance of the Multiverse.]]

** Time In a Bottle, in London, where neutrality is enforced by Merlin's magic. It's where the [[Literature/TheWarOfTheWorlds Martians]] signed the non-aggression pact with the UK Government, British agents made deals with FuManchu, and [[Music/TheBeatles the Rattles]] had their last civil meeting, and is now MyLocal for heroes and villains from across the UK.

* [[AllThereInTheManual Supplemental material]] for ''Fanfic/TheBridge'' shows that New Birth Island is this for the war between Terra's kaiju factions. Primarily because its owner, Biollante, has declared herself neutral and will not ''allow'' the war to happen on her territory -- and since she's in the same power range as Godzilla and Xenilla, she can easily enforce that rule.

* In ''Literature/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.]]
