Swellview is a fictional American city in which the show Henry Danger takes place. It is located not very far from Bordertown, and next to Neighborville and Rivalton. Its citizens are called "Swellviewans".
The City of Swellview was founded in 1896 in the greater Swellview County of Swellview State, and is well known for its railroad industry, and wind turbine powered electricity. Its heroes are Captain Man and (formerly) Kid Danger. It is known that the heroes only save the people who live in Swellview (with small exceptions such as protecting New York City). Despite its lousy government and rules, Swellview is a popular destination for tourists.
Swellview was established in the year 1896, the same year as its park. The Battle of Swellview was known to have taken place here. The city's first public bathroom opened in its park in 1898. They also have a designated railroad named Swellview Valley Railroad, a metal sign in giant white letters spelling the city's name, and a large lake, with a secret underground facility located beneath the depths of the lake, unknown to the city's residents except for its notorious criminals.
Swellview also has a mine shaft, which, can be implied, that hasn't been visited in years, shut down, or is inactive at the moment. A popular video store called Beta Maximus from the 1900s also operated in the city, until it closed down after years of service.
The city is located next to Bordertown, where the Frittle Factory apparently shares borders with Swellview, and nearby to Neighborville and Rivalton.
In 2020, a statue of Kid Danger was erected on a mountain in Swellview honoring the late hero, who saved the lives of everyone from preventing the blimp to crash on the land.

Although unrelated to the above, many of Captain Man's rogues gallery who have been arrested are often put back on the streets to commit further crimes in Swellview, for several reasons unknown. Corruption could possibly be a result. In addition, like any American city, organized crime plagues the streets of Swellview.
Swellview has a confusing government unlike fellow U.S. states, counties, and municipalities, and some of the things they do are very out of the ordinary. It is believed they score low on poor education in the city.
- Because most DanWarp shows take place on the West Coast of the USA (San Diego for Drake & Josh, Seattle for iCarly and Los Angeles for Victorious and Sam & Cat), we can speculate Swellview to be on the West Coast too.
- In an episode of Henry Danger: Motion Comics, it is shown that Las Vegas is close to Swellview, since Captain Man was able to drive there very quickly. This may hint Swellview is located in the state of Nevada, California, or Utah.
- In Sam and Cat, they have soda from Club Soda which hints that Swellview is very close to the location of the Sam and Cat babysitting business in Venice, California.
- In Henry Danger's animated spinoff, Swellview may be in Arizona since the plot of one episode involved driving to the state of Texas for 1000 wieners.

- It is most likely the DanWarp universe's version of Hollywood, because Swellview has its own sign, much like the Hollywood Sign.
- However, it's mentioned in Secret Beef that Hollywood exists in the Henry Danger universe. If it's true, Henry Danger doesn't take place in the same universe as iCarly, Victorious, and Sam & Cat, because both Victorious and Sam & Cat take place in Hollywood, and iCarly takes place in the same universe as Sam & Cat (Sam & Cat is a crossover series between iCarly and Victorious).
- However, with Goomer appearing in a special episode (and Frankini revealed to possibly be Cat's crazy brother), this can be disputed.

- Swellview being located right next to Bordertown is like the close proximity of the city of Oakland to San Francisco, California, or Jersey City, New Jersey next to New York City, New York.
- Because Swellview has a mountain called "Mount Swellview", it can be implied the city is located near the Rocky Mountains, which span the Western United States.
- With Swellview having its own license plates (as shown in Holiday Punch), it can now be further implied the city is named after its state. That having been said, Swellview state is now believed to be located within an area that has forests and deserts, and wedged right in between the states of California, and Nevada.
