* In ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'', San Francisco is considered dangerous territory for demigods since The city and its surrounding Bay Area feature a lot in ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' and ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'' as the home of various main characters and villains.
** Annabeth has her home here, though she prefers to live in Camp Half-Blood as she dislikes her adoptive mother.
**
Mount Othrys, Orthys' (the home of the Titans' fortress, Titans) American counterpart is currently Mount Tamalpais, which is not quite in SF, but still within the Bay Area.
** Kampê holds her prisoners in Alcatraz.
** Camp Jupiter is
located on top behind a hillside. Considering how the camp is even larger than its Greek counterpart (complete with a river that simply vanishes into the mortal territory, and a ''town'' populated by retired demigods/legacies), it must take quite a lot of Mist to cover it. Meanwhile, new recruits are initially held in the Wolf House, located a bit to the north in Sonoma.
** Enceladus holds Piper's dad hostage in
Mount Tamalpais.Diablo, e.g. "Mount Devil".

Added DiffLines:

* ''Pixar/InsideOut'' takes place inside the head of a girl (Riley) who has recently moved to San Fransisco; landmarks show up occasionally but are never given a big role in the plot. E.g. the Golden Gate Bridge can be seen while Riley and her parents drive into the city the first time, and Lombard Street is used as part of an establishing shot before focusing on the emotions of a bus driver stuck in traffic (all variations on Anger, fittingly enough).
