** Harry Turtledove provides another example of this in the {{Timeline-191}} series, with the Battle of Pittsburgh. It's modeled after the RealLife Battle of Stalingrad.

* TheWarOnTerror and various other government-insurgency conflicts have seen a large amount of this in recent years. US troops have fought to control cities in Iraq and Afghanistan. Somalia had the Battle of Mogadishu, during which the federal government at times controlled a minority of its capital. The Arab Spring and its aftermath have involved drawn-out fights for control of major cities in Libya, Syria, and Yemen, with fragmented control of cities persisting for years in cases such as Aleppo's. While ISIS overran many of its cities in Iraq and Syria fairly quickly, retaking them has usually required urban warfare. At the lower end of the scale, large terrorist attacks on cities can verge on urban warfare if a sufficient number of fighters is present.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' features even more urban warfare in the ruins of Boston, complete with fights inside skyscrapers. Outside of Diamond City and Goodneighbor, downtown Boston is infested with Raiders, Super Mutants, Institute Synths, and Gunner mercenaries, all of whom will shoot on sight. This also applies to the ruins of the surrounding towns. In fact, you get your first taste of combat early on in Concord, where you don PoweredArmor and wield a [[GatlingGood minigun]] to take out Raiders [[spoiler:and a Deathclaw]].

* Though yet to appear directly, flashbacks in ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' show this in [[spoiler:Heartland]], and a major plot point is Declan's attempts to prevent this from happening in his own home. The second season also includes this trope as a looming threat, with a civil war on the rise in The City and different factions struggling to keep the peace or destroy it.

However, the story is centered around a young couple, a Serb guy and a Croat girl, whose romance is threatened by the war.

** The popular ''ProjectReality'' mod takes this a step further by [[RealPlaceBackground using real-world cities]] such as Beirut, Muttrah, Basrah, Fallujah, and Karbala.

* The Siege of Zaragoza in the NapoleonicWars was an example of what would happen on such occasions when surrender was not forthcoming. The French got in and found the populace willing to continue resisting. The result was a long and costly mess which cost the French dearly. In this case it was an [[ItsPersonal ideological war]] whereas in the eighteenth century at least it was often [[NothingPersonal just a job]] for soldiers, and just something to avoid for civilians.

* NintendoWars:Cities(and bases) are tied with mountains for cover rating, meaning that any unit placed on one has takes far less damage. Add onto this that units on friendly cities are substantially healed every turn, mix in some artillery, and battles to capture cities can become ''very'' bloody.
