* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' portrays the [[Videogame/PokemonColosseum Orre region]] this way. It's a barren wasteland where only the strong survive, and Cipher pretty much controls it. Agate Village is one of the few safe havens where they don't have any influence.

* ''ComicBook/{{Iznogoud}}'': Baghdad, especially from the Tabary era onwards, but already in the Goscinny era. Not only is it governed by the oblivious Caliph and the evil Iznogoud, but HumansAreBastards in that city, and most citizens are {{hypocrite}}s who complain all the time about Iznogoud's ruthlessness but are willing to help him for a few bucks, despite knowing the consequences if he's ever successful. In "Chop and Change", after Iznogoud becomes the Caliph for a short time by changing bodies with him and starts unleashing his tyranny, one guy [[WhatTheHellHero berates]] the wizard who helped him, but the latter doesn't seem to regret it.

* {{Franchise/Transformers}} has Kaon, the underbelly of Cybertron, where in several different continuities it is always the birthplace of the rebellions that later become the Decepticon movement, and typically houses a gladiatorial arena where underground blood sports are run. Megatron typically makes his name here as a gladiator before he becomes the commander of the Decepticons.

* ''Series/{{Taboo}}'': London is basically this, [[AristocratsAreEvil with the debauched excesses of the aristocracy,]] the brutal intrigues of warring nations, and the wealth, power, and privilege of [[CorruptCorporateExecutive amoral corporate executives]] serving to crush the common people beneath the heels of their masters.

* Miracle City from ''[[ElTigre El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera]]'', "a spicy cesspool of crime and villainy" according to the OpeningNarration and is in fact the town's slogan. The nearby town Calavera takes it UpToEleven.

** 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.

Since it sits on an archipelago right between Equestria, Gryphonia, and Zebrica, none of those nations can make any move on it without the other two seeing it as a threat, which is what allows it to remain a Wretched Hive.
