* ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'': The "community" living to the east of the Horrible Ghastly Death Woods, at least according to Celia and Balmer. [[spoiler: Subverted entirely once we meet them.]]



* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''--The family visits New York City. According to Homer's flashbacks to his last visit NYC conforms to the trope. Every living thing is corrupt in some way. On his last visit, a random guy steals his coat, a cop steals his wallet, and a pigeon steals the very hotdog he was eating. Right from his mouth. A New York pigeon. Also the teller he was reading claimed that "crime was up eight million percent".

** In [[Fanfic/TheLifeAndTimesOfAWinningPony the Winningverse]], there is Rogueport, a NotSoSafeHarbor run by greedy merchant-princes, with guards so corrupt they are ''expected'' to supplement their income with bribes, and a haven for mercenaries, spies, and legalized piracy.

* In [[Gensokyo20XX Gensokyo 20XXV]], we have "The Forbiddens", which are considered to be NoMansLand, and, compared to the rest of the setting, these are the worst places to be, especially if one be woman or child.

* New Hong Kong, in ''ComicBook/BuckGodotZapGunForHire''. It has one Law Drone, but since New Hong Kong ''has'' no laws, it spends a lot of time meditating up on a tower. New Hong Kong may have only one law ("There shall be no laws on New Hong Kong") but it has a great many ''customs'', and the populace enforce them so effectively that it's actually quite peaceful-- in the same sense that Ankh-Mopork is peaceful under the Thieves' Guild. Or as the residents of New Hong Kong put it: "There are no laws here. That doesn't mean that there aren't rules."

Some of these customs do include the fact EveryoneIsArmed and the New Hong Kong Wake, which involves drugging your dead friend/relative's killer with TruthSerum to get him to confess then leaving him to die of an overdose.

* From ''Manga/OnePiece'', since the World Government only controls one Island there, the second half of the Grand Line, dubbed the "New World" controlled by the Four Pirate Emperors, is rather chaotic.

Added DiffLines:

** Saobondy Archipelago, while has lovely shopping areas and a thriving theme park, has a "Lawless area" where crooks and slavers operate uninhibited. After the TimeSkip, during which the Navy moved their headquarters to the other side of the Red Line, the size of the lawless area increased.
** Fishman Island has the Fishman District an area underneath Fishman Island proper (The "Island" is encased in a gigantic bubble), where the New Fishman Pirates have set up base. It was supposed to be a home for orphans, but quickly fell into disarray. [[spoiler: King Neptune has the entire district closed down when it becomes apparent that the negative enviroment was what contributed to the New Fishman Pirates' warped mindsets]]

* DyingTown[softreturn]A town or city whose reason for existence disappeared a long time ago and left behind those who couldn't get out; when you have a lot of poor, desperate people in the same place, some of them will inevitably turn to crime, and that same desperation will also bring plenty of other social problems.

* To those who enjoy JournalRoleplay, the Dreamwidth community "Wankgate" is this. Many players are usually directed ''away'' from the site due to the fact that many games and players tend to just get torn apart and it instills fear into players that they might just be next because they don't "play right" or "act right".
