* The ''[[Franchise/TransformersFilmSeries Transformers]]'' film series is all over the place. Sam Witwicky lives in a place called Mission City, which in the first film was 22 miles from the Hoover Dam, putting it somewhere in Nevada or Arizona. Its final battle sequence, though, was very obviously [[CaliforniaDoubling filmed in downtown Los Angeles]] (with some bits in Detroit as well). Sam also goes to college somewhere far enough from Mission City that he has to fly there, although ExecutiveMeddling necessitated this one – since the second film also shows his mother’s [[WackyFratboyHijinks marijuana-fueled escapades around campus]], several colleges forbade Creator/MichaelBay from identifying the place.

* Centerville, the hometown of the title characters in ''Radio/TheAldrichFamily'', is in an unnamed state. The fact that many episodes that aired during the winter months reference heavy snowfall implies that it is north of the Mason-Dixon Line, but that's as much as can be easily inferred.



* The location of the nameless city in which ''{{Urinetown}}'' is set is a complete mystery. All that can be inferred (though the presence of Senator Fipp) is that it is in the U.S.

* ''{{Pretear}}'' is set in the fictional Awayuki Town, somewhere in Japan. We're shown that the town appears to be on a small island connected to the main part of Japan by a bridge, but it's hard to tell much else.

*''Franchise/TheMuppets'':
** Kermit's swamp is initially in an undisclosed location in ''Film/TheMuppetMovie'', is revealed to be in Florida during ''The Muppets at Walt Disney World'', and then ''Film/KermitsSwampYears'' puts it in Mississipi, not far from Creator/JimHenson's birthplace. That seems to have stuck, with Denise commenting that his state tree is magnolia in ''Series/TheMuppets'' episode "The Ex Factor".
** The locations of the Muppet Theatre in ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' and KMUP Studios in ''Series/MuppetsTonight'' are never revealed in the original series either, since what exists beyond the show isn't relevant. (The deliberately ConspicuousCGI of the [=MuppetVision=] studio in ''Series/TheJimHensonHour'' arguably isn't intended to ''have'' a realspace location.) ''Film/ItsAVeryMerryMuppetChristmasMovie'' establishes the Muppet Theatre is in a city with a park, a bank, and, for some reason, [[Film/TheGrinch Whos]], but doesn't name it (even the Official Historical Landmark certificate just says "the City"). ''Film/TheMuppets'' makes it part of Muppet Studios in Hollywood.

** WordOfGod holds that Kiriko is basicaly a "Stockholm-in-a-world-without-WWII" with some other influences thrown in. [[Creator/HayaoMiyazaki Miya]][[FanNickname -sensei]] says that most of it is based on his notes and sketches from the time he visited Creator/AstridLindgren to discuss possible adaptation of ''Literature/PippiLongstocking''. The talks fell through,[[note]]The first Lindgren work to be adapted by Creator/StudioGhibli is the ''Literature/RonjaTheRobbersDaughter'' filmed by his son Creator/GoroMiyazaki some thirty years later.[[/note]] but the materials he obtained on the trip went into the movie.

** ''Film/BatmanVsSuperman'' takes this a step further by placing Gotham (traditionally a Chicago stand-in, as mentioned above) quite literally across a lake from Metropolis (usually representing New York). The location of neither city is confirmed.
