** SubvertedTrope in the two-parter "Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel", where the BadAss leader of LaResistance against the MadScientist John Lumic is London's most wanted...for parking tickets. "I was fighting the system! Park anywhere!" he says. No wonder they accepted Mickey as a replacement so easily.

** Had two examples of this trope: the resistance on Caprica which consisted of [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified handsome, well-scrubbed athletes fighting in beautiful irradiated pine forests]], and the resistance on New Caprica which consisted of [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized unshaven tent-dwellers fighting a dirty war of suicide bombers and no razor blades]]. Although the Caprica resistance were quite willing to blow up civilians in bars, in a way that was only relatively less morally ambiguous than the second example.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven'': Revolves around the adventures of a resistance force composed of such characters as [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized a cowardly thief, a computer hacker who only wants to get rich, a smuggler, a murderer, and so on]].

** LaResistance is formed in the pilot, whose main purpose is to find out the Taelons' purpose on Earth. In later seasons, several world governments, under pressure from the Taelons, declare martial law and start hunting down the resistance members. Both Boone (season 1) and Kincaid (seasons 2-4) are protectors of a Taelon called Da'an, although both are also secretly members of LaResistance. Initially, the resistance is well-funded, as it was founded by a wealthy tycoon. Their numbers are also high. Later on, though, the numbers and the funds dwindle. By the end, there are very few members left. In the final season, there are less than a dozen members left, as they fight to prevent the Atavus takeover (in this case, it's more about the world not knowing or not believing about the Atavus, although a good number of officials are human/Atavus hybrids).

* ''Series/FirstWave'': Starts with only one person resisting the secret alien takeover, joined by another person shortly after. However, they constantly publish about their exploits on an online journal, which, as they find out, a good number of people start reading. A biker gang finds out about the existence of aliens and starts hunting them down indiscriminately, which forces Cade to take them down instead. Later on, an alien reveals that not all of them agree that an invasion of Earth is a good idea and is willing to subvert his people's efforts. The last few seasons reveal the existence of Raven Nation, an organization that goes more in line with this trope.

* ''Series/SecretArmy'': Accurately portrays the Belgian Resistance as a series of different organizations, all more or less [[WeAreStrugglingTogether working towards the same goal]]. Lifeline is an apolitical escape line, funneling resistors and downed Allied airmen out of occupied Europe. They sometimes find themselves at odds with those organizations that undertake violent resistance, and come under scrutiny by their British handlers who fear that Lifeline, like many other resistance groups, is a Communist cell.

* ''Series/{{V 1983}}: The Miniseries'': Alien fascists invade and humanity fights back...those who don't collaborate or do nothing, anyway.
* In ''Series/{{V2009}}'', a small resistance group is eliminated in the pilot, leaving only four: one of the original members of the group, a V hiding on Earth, an FBI agent, and a Catholic priest (ex-army). The group later grows slightly to include a gun-for-hire and the chief medical officer aboard [[Creator/MorenaBaccarin Anna]]'s ship (a member of the Fifth Column secretly opposing Anna's leadership). Later, they even manage to recruit Anna's daughter Lisa. The GrandFinale shows that a much larger resistance group called Project Ares has been set up by high-ranking military and government leaders shortly after the arrival of the [=Vs=]. Needless to say, they are well-funded and even have a base in a bunker located a mile beneath Manhattan.

** Also during the Dominion War arc, several of the main and recurring characters form a Resistance movement to stop the Dominion from destroying the minefield that keeps ships from passing through the wormhole. [[spoiler: They fail, but they do manage to disable the station long enough to keep it from blowing up the ''Defiant''.]]

* ''Series/TwentyFour'': Somewhat obvious in Season 7. The rogue CTU consisting of Chloe, Tony, and Bill have all had their looks changed to fits this trope and make them look tougher. Chloe has had her hair died dark, but the most noticeable change is former Bureaucrat Bill Buchanan wearing black head to toe with a two day stubble. He's one beret short of a parody. Tony's transformation is more convincing.

* ''{{Sliders}}'': Nine out of ten episodes had the gang sliding into a world that had serious societal problems, running afoul of the authorities that benefit from them, and joining the local resistance to set things right. Sometimes they would be the ones to ''start'' the resistance.
