Metro City is the main setting of the Double Dragon animated series and Double Dragon V: The Shadow Falls.

Overview[]

Metro City houses several mutants due to the radiation emitted by the fusion plants (which acts as a sort of substitute to the post-nuclear setting of the game series). During the series, these plants are replaced by the EMF plant, which brings more energy to the city but without pollution or noise.

Relevant landmarks include the Dragon Dojo, where Billy Lee and his brother Jimmy teach martial arts, and the Shadow Dojo, hiding place of the Black Flame that powers the Shadow Master.

Trivia[]

  • The setting of the original Double Dragon takes place in New York City, which the Black Warriors have claimed as their turf. Metro City is likely a generalization of that city, similar to how Metropolis plays a similar role in the DC Comics universe.
  • Coincidentally enough, Metro City is also the name of the city in which Capcom's Final Fight, another beat-'em-up series of which Double Dragon is considered a rival, is set.
