** Vakovar, in Magador, even more so. At least by the time Lone Wolf visits it, it's full of brigands.

** Vakovar, in Magador, even more so. At least by the time Lone Wolf visits it, it's full of brigands. The worst part is that the current state of affairs is apparently an improvment over what it was like back when the Darklords were still in power.

* Brakmar in ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' is a place rife with criminal enterprise, violent shenanigans, and prostitution (yes this is a children's cartoon). The kicker is that this is a ''massive improvement'' over what it was like in the ''Dofus'' era before Sacrier tried to civilize the lot of them. It went from [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}} Commorragh]] to [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Gotham City]].

* This is what [[ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee Croshaw]] refers to the Xbox Live Arcade as in his 2.5D Hoedown review. He actually uses the entire phrase "wretched hive of scum and villainy" and accompanies it with an image of two games featured on the XBLA, one wearing an eyepatch and growling menacingly, and another brandishing a switchblade.

* ''Film/{{Candyman}}'': The Cabrini-Green housing projects in UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}} are the main setting, and the fear and desperation of the inhabitants give supernatural power to the title villain.

* In the English translation of ''KurosagiCorpseDeliveryService'', Kereellis, [[DemonicDummy the sock-puppet from outer space]], [[ConversationalTroping complains]] once that the Russian night club the group visits once is not the wretched hive of scum and villainy he was promised. * From ''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.

* Subverted in ''PrincessMononoke''. When seen for the first time, the Ironworks are a bunch of grey roofs and tall smoking chimneys crowded together on a small hill surrounded by heavily barbed barricades inside the rotting stumps of a razed forest. But once Ashitaka gets inside, the steel workers are astonishingly well mannered and cheerful people who hold their equally charming director in very high regard. * Lux in ''{{Texhnolyze}}'' ''is'' this trope. The parts of the city that aren't in the control of three vicious gangs struggling with each other are in hopeless squalor, and the "normal" populace can easily be more dangerous than the gangsters in those parts.

* ''Webcomic/BasketsOfGuts'' has most of it's story set in Ancard - a heavily urbanized city on a mountain with a population filthy enough to fit into FilmNoir.
