** In the short story "The Borders of Infinity", Miles has been dropped into a Cetagandan [=POW=] camp in order to find the man who, in his boss's words, is just the right person to give LaResistance of the Cetaganda-occupied Marilac "a shot in the arm." Unfortunately, he finds the man just in time for him to die. So he breaks out the entire prison camp ''en masse''. Ten thousand new recruits with plenty of reason to hate the oppressors? That'll do. We learn in a later book that Cetaganda pulled out of Marilac entirely.

* Steven Brust's ''Teckla'' and ''Phoenix'' from the ''{{Dragaera}}: Vlad Taltos'' series have Cawti involved in [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything a resistance movement of the lower classes]]. In fact, Dragaeran society, which goes through a pre-determined cycle of leadership, is designed to have a period of time in which the peasant Tecklas rise up and convert the Empire into a Republic. Vlad is upset because this particular resistance movement isn't occuring during the correct time in the cycle, and thus he believes it is doomed to fail.

* The very originally named Resistance in ''TheBartimaeusTrilogy''. A slight subversion, as it turns out that, despite being an annoyance to the government, there are only a dozen of them and they're defeated rather easily when confronting a real danger. Not to mention that while one of the viewpoint characters is a member, another is a government magician hunting them down.
