* In ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens'', the monsters duke it out with a giant robot on the Golden Gate Bridge, eventually toppling it.
* ''Disney/BigHero6'' takes place in San Fransokyo, a city that combines elements of San Francisco and Tokyo, complete with streetcars and a slightly altered version of the Golden Gate Bridge.
* ''WesternAnimation/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).

* The chase scene from the film ''Film/TheRock'' is one of the best examples of a car pursuit in that city.
** This might be the best example, because it includes nearly every San Francisco and chase scene stereotype in the span of a few minutes. Obscene wealth (it's a Ferrari chasing a Hummer), the CampGay Hummer owner and hairstylist, a bottled water truck playing the role of a FruitCart, a crashing cable car, a wheelchair race, talking on a cell while driving and a hipster on a dirtbike. Yay!

* The silly-ass ''Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine'', a 1965 comedy staring Vincent Price, has possibly the longest, silliest ([[DrivingADesk rear-projected]]) car chase ever down San Francisco's Lombard Street - part on location, part green screen, as the antagonists & protagonists switch between on cars, trollies, & even a boat on wheels. Vincent Price makes a great show of looking carsick through it.

** San Francisco was one of the first sites of a Kaiju attack in Film/PacificRim, with the bridge being destroyed. In the ExpandedUniverse, Oakland's bay becomes a dumping ground for Kaiju skeletons.
** In ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens'', the monsters duke it out with a giant robot on the bridge, eventually toppling it.

* The main setting for R. Talsorian's ''TabletopGame/{{Cyberpunk}}'' is Night City, a thinly-veiled pastiche of San Francisco with a little bit of LosAngeles thrown in and a generous helping of ''Film/BladeRunner'' visual imagery.
