[[AC:{{Film}}]] * The mayor in ''CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'' even lampshades this. At one point he mentions spending the entire town budget on a project "without consulting anyone", and later funds ''another'' project by taking out a "very high interest loan".

* Inverted in ''HortonHearsAWho'' where, in Whoville, the town council bosses the mayor around and he has no say in any decisions.

* [[SantaClausIsCominToTown Burgermeister Meisterburger]] lives and breathes this trope. Not only does he have the power to ban toys "throughout the land, from sea to sea", but he can and does initiate a worldwide manhunt for ''Santa Claus''... to no avail in the end, but still.

* On ''Series/TheDukesOfHazzard'', Boss Hogg's title was County Commissioner and was apparently the highest authority to cheat and steal from everyone.

* ''{{Sonichu}}'' has the AuthorAvatar. The mayor rules a total {{Egopolis}} where everything from the radio station to the currency to the most popular ''soda'' to the city itself is named after him, and the laws (based purely on his own values and {{Squick}}s) are enforced via ''psychic monitoring.'' His authority is primarily exercised by slaughtering the avatars of those who've pissed off the author in real life in the [[NightmareFuel most horrific ways]]. As he is above the law, no one ever blinks an eye. Oh, [[DesignatedHero and we the audience are intended to root for him]].

Added DiffLines:
* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has a downplayed version in Mayor John Hancock. His rule of [[WretchedHive Goodneighbor]] is absolute but lightly enforced; he deliberately leaves his people to their own devices most of the time, only stepping in when he feels their actions threaten the city as a whole, and attempts to avoid abuse of that power to differentiate himself from [[spoiler:his brother in Diamond City]]. In fact, the reason he becomes a companion to the [[PlayerCharacter Sole Survivor]] is because he's worried that he's become too comfortable with being in power and has started to become a tyrant; he steps down for a while to 'keep himself real.'

* BorderlandsThePreSequel: Huxter T. Meredith, who is the Mayor of Concordia, biggest city on Elpis. And also the Sheriff. Although he can shut the city down on a whim and steals from charities with impunity, he's ultimately a pretty pathetic example- from the sound of it, he's a pawn of the Hyperion corporation, and gets humiliated when the player exposes his affair with a {{Sexbot}}.

* As of ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'', Quincy Sharp, now Mayor of Gotham City, was somehow allowed to buy up a chunk of the city, throw in every criminal and mental patient in Gotham, including the supervillains and have the area fenced off, surrounded by armed guards. Note that he also throws in political prisoners; including people who built the prison, and Bruce Wayne for protesting it, all without the benefit of a trial.

Though it was mentioned that the city was under Martial Law at the time.
