Brainblow City is the "seedy underworld" in which the Dangeresque franchise is set. It is first mentioned in Dangeresque 3: The Criminal Projective, where it's described as "a town as hard as steel and twice as gray". In this film, the set is constructed from a cardboard cutout with buildings painted on it, standing behind the brick wall. The city is home to the smoky office that Dangeresque operates out of, the Brainblow City Prison (portrayed by Bubs' Concession Stand) where Baron Darin Diamonocle is detained, the abandoned night club where Perducci has set up his hideout, a public shark pond, a bar with an arcade and no door, and Perducci's, an Italian restaurant owned by the titular mobster.

Dangeresque claims that Brainblow City is the only place left in the world where the rare Stickanee Tree can be found, and that the city's water is among the most contaminated in the world, as drinking it is known to cause spontaneous mutations. He also claims that there's nothing but "desolate wastelands and probably tar pits" beyond the city limits; as he is wanted outside of the city for "Undisclothed Violations", Dangeresque avoids leaving Brainblow. According to Strong Bad on Instagram, there was a billion-dollar space project to put Venetian blinds over the moon, casting atmosphering lighting across the whole city; this project "kinda bankrupted the city and might be the reason it's so grimy and corrupt and full of crime". Dangeresque owns an "i ♥ Brainblow City" mug, seen in Dangeresque Puppet Squad: The Hot Jones Hijack.

Due to the apparent lack of urban areas within Free Country USA, the city is usually depicted by the field; however, Strong Bad's dreams of a more realistically-rendered city are visualized in Dangeresque 3's Extended Play. Strong Bad describes this version as perfectly gloomy and dire, and a The Pizz sign can be seen in the distance. It similarly appears as an actual city in Dangeresque Roomisode 2: The Intersection of Doom & Boom, with streets, traffic, buildings, and a spacious sewer system underneath.
