* In TimothyZahn's largely-unknown ''Literature/{{Blackcollar}}'' series, humanity has been [[CurbStompBattle curbstomped]] by the Ryqril, a very aggressive race whose idea of a war is to ''bomb entire worlds'' if that's what's needed to subjugate their enemies. Even the elite of the elite, the genetically-enhanced [[{{Ninja}} Blackcollar warriors]], couldn't stop the massacre. But when defeat is officially signed the Blackcollars don't take it very well, declare themselves LaResistance and embark in a long guerilla-like battle against their conquerors. They are ultimately forced to face the futility of their actions on the grand scale of things, and they more or less surrender and turn to a pathetic, sad life of drunkenly remembering the good old days. [[spoiler:This is, of course, merely a ruse to throw their enemies off their tracks; when the opportunity presents itself they go back to their former selves, and epic asskicking results. By themselves, they know they're no match for the Ryqril Empire, but they discover the existence of a secret stash of ''Nova''-class cruisers in a system's asteroid belt, originally placed there in order to strike at the enemy's rear. They manage to recover the cruisers, with some help from a race of aliens currently fighting a losing war against the Ryqril. The combination of the cruisers and the fact that their primary forces are currently busy at the front lines forces the Ryqril to give in to the fairly reasonable demands of the resistance. When one member questions the need to keep the demands reasonable, someone wiser points out that the Ryqril could easily curb-stomp their tiny fleet if they prove too much of a nuisance, even if it delays their next conquest by a short while]].

* ''Literature/TheStolenThrone'' takes place a few decades prior to ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', set during the [[TheEmpire Orlesian]] occupation of [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Ferelden]]. The rebels are led by Queen Moira Theirin, the rightful ruler of Ferelden, after her father was forced to abdicate to [[TheCaligula Meghren]], the usurper king. The novel starts with Moira being ambushed and killed by nobles seeking to curry favor with the usurper, with her young son Maric barely escaping with his life. After a short while, Maric manages to meet up with a boy named Loghain Mac Tir, whose father performs a HeroicSacrifice to save Maric's life, still loyal to the Theirin line. Eventually, the two grow closer as friends, with Loghain becoming one of the generals of the growing rebel army. Unfortunately, the army is nearly wiped out thanks to a traitor, but the rebellion succeeds in the end, pushing the Orlesians out. Maric is crowned king, and he grants Loghain the noble title of Teyrn.

* In ''[[Literature/ArrivalsFromTheDark Dark Skies]]'', an alien race called the Dromi captures three remote human colonies. With the [[TheFederation Earth Federation]] busy fighting a desperate war against the very same vastly more numerous enemy, it takes two years before a task force can be dispatched to try to retake the strategically-unimportant planets. Intelligence about the number of alien occupiers turns out to be incorrect, and the task force is wiped out, with only a single survivor making it to the surface of the planet T'har (he's actually from that planet). Badly hurt, he's recovered by the planet's resistance forces, who heal him and explain what's been happening on the planet for the past two years. Many humans were killed either during the initial attack or during the attempt to round up the survivors, with the rest (those not still free) rounded up and used as slave labor. The resistance is based in two old mines far to the north of the main habitable zone (being cold-blooded, the Dromi don't like to venture there), making regular attacks against patrol squads, hoping to bleed the occupiers until they leave. The task force survivor explains that the Dromi don't think like that. To them, the soldiers they kill are CannonFodder, beneath notice. Besides, Dromi are {{Explosive Breeder}}s and can quickly replenish their numbers. He tries to equip them better by locating and opening the Arsenal, an old cache of military-grade equipment (e.g. weapons, transportation, rations, robots), in order to prepare the resistance for a single strike against the enemy base on this planet. [[spoiler:The strike succeeds only partly. The resistance manages to rescue the captives, but the attempt to kill the Dromi Patriarch doesn't have the desired effect. The only thing that saves them is TheCavalry]].

* ''Literature/TheHistoryOfTheGalaxy'' has the Free Colonies doing their damndest to keep the [[TheEmpire Earth Alliance]] from subjugating them in order to offload the excess population from the overcrowded homeworld (mainly the undesirables, whom the colonists wouldn't be willing to accept under normal circumstances). The Alliance has a powerful war machine with advanced technology, while the colonists have only relatively recently [[LostColony rediscovered one another]] and have only been boldened by the Alliance's OrbitalBombardment of the planet Dabog, which continues to stand as the silent, radioactive symbol of defiance. A good number of books are dedicated to the war, which lasts for half a century, and the technical advanced brought about because of it. By the end of the war, the Alliance is defeated, the core colonies become industrial and scientific powerhouses and form the [[TheFederation Confederacy of Suns]]. Centuries later, Earth is largely abandoned, home to only a few million people, and the once-urbanized landscape is a lush jungle.
