* In ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'', the (so far [[NoNameGiven nameless]]) mayor is the only government authority figure that has been seen and hasn't been shown to have to answer to a city council or higher authority for her actions, although there is mention of a governor of the planet Jean on which the comic is set.

It's justified, as the average town here on Earth has more people than the entire planet Jean; they don't really need a higher authority.

* In ''VideoGame/FableI'', the Mayor of Bowerstone has enough power to order that a ConspiracyTheorist be executed without trial. The position also seems to be inherited, so the title is perhaps closer to a JustTheFirstCitizen affectation.

* Oliver Queen on ''Series/{{Arrow}}''. His mayoral staff is [[{{Nepotism}} full of his family and friends]], most of whom have criminal records, have been kicked out of other branches of local and federal service, and have no political experience whatsoever. He makes unilateral decisions for the city that would realistically have to be put to voter referendum and intentionally undercuts the city council when he doesn't like their decisions. He only ran because all the other candidates where either blatantly evil villains, murdered during their campaign or both and he's been under suspicion or indictment nearly his entire term.

* The various Kage in Naruto fill a number of roles in their society but unless they're actually being called upon to command an army in their capacity as the nation's supreme military commander they're principally the mayor of their village.

* The various Kage in Naruto fill a number of roles in their society but unless they're actually being called upon to command an army in their capacity as the nation's supreme military commander they're principally the mayor of their village. Because of their great political power at a national level (not to mention their usually era defining skill at ninjustsu) their power is pretty much absolute.

* The Mayor of ''InkCity'' presents himself as one of these, though he prefers interacting with the residents on ''his terms'' -- rather than letting them bring their questions and grievances directly to him, he tends to show himself primarily to rebuke and remind them of their place. It helps that he can [[spoiler:control the ink monsters]].

* Sinclair, Sheridan, and Lochley in ''[[Series/BabylonFive Babylon 5]]''. In this case, because they are the commanding officers of the space station, which is an Earth military base despite also functioning as a commerce hub and meeting place for the various major powers[[spoiler: and because during the Shadow War they declare independence from Earth]].
* Sherrif Lucas Buck from ''Series/AmericanGothic''. Pretty much the raison d'etre of the show.

* Mayor Mike Haggar from ''VideoGame/FinalFight''. Stepping out of his authority here means you get a giant fist or your bones shattered with his wrestling skills or being smacked with an iron pipe he grabs nearby. Which happens a lot to Mad Gear gang.

Stepping out of his authority here means you get a giant fist or your bones shattered with his wrestling skills or being smacked with an iron pipe he grabs nearby. Which happens a lot to Mad Gear gang. As Final Fight shares a universe with Street Fighter, and Mayor Haggar himself is a former participant of the World Warrior Tournament, you have to wonder what the Mad Gear is thinking, provoking a [[CharlesAtlasSuperPower Charles Atlas Super Human]] as World Warriors like Ryu and the others are bound to be...

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': The comics have Mayor Mike, who is actually a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]]. He and everyone in the town of Teufort believe he has absolute authority over everything. One man even fakes having an Italian accent for years on Mayor's orders, despite hating it, because nobody realized the Mayor can't make someone do that. Nobody questioned Mike's absolute power because they're all brain damaged due to a tainted water supply.
