* The ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' series' expanded universe has this in the form of the Insurrection, a number of rebel groups that want independence for their colonies from the government of Earth. Unfortunately they do this through terrorism, attacking civilian targets after protests didn't do anything. They were actually viewed sympathetically by most of humanity, but when they started killing people all of that good publicity went down the drain.

* ''AceCombat'': These games often have a resistance movement on the ground aiding your efforts in the air.

* ''FireEmblem: Path of Radiance'': Has this group, though it happens offscreen and is only mentioned when members of the Resistance join up the Liberation army.
* ''FireEmblem: Radiant Dawn'': Has the Dawn Brigade led by Micaiah, though it quickly comes to resemble Joan of Arc pushing the enemies out the country, with the heroine being known from everyone, including the enemy, and hailed as a miraculous figure head, and joining and then leading the prince's army.

* ''{{Homefront}}'': Has you being "recruited" into the titular resistance (or the ''home front'') in the first level, right before the fighting starts. Not that you had a choice anyway, since the North Koreans weren't too keen on giving those.

* ''IronGrip'': These games have you playing as various guerrillas and resistance groups fighting [[TheEmpire militaristic empires]]. BadAss LastStand included....
* ''[[JakAndDaxter Jak II:]] [[DarkerAndEdgier Renegade]]'': The Underground is a darker version of this, without actually falling victim to TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized. While they're willing to employ pretty much anyone who can help, deal with crime lords, and generally behave like terrorists, their leaders are still fundamentally nice guys who are doing the best they can; Torn left the [[XtremeKoolLetterz Krimzon Guard]] rather than support Baron Praxis's continued [[MoralEventHorizon canine-raping]], and seems genuinely concerned for the people in the Slums who risk death when Praxis cuts off the water supply.

* ''OperationFlashpoint'': Had two different, but related rag-tag groups of civilians and former security forces employees fighting a Soviet invasion of their two [[{{Ruritania}} fictional homelands]] during TheEighties phase of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar. The aptly named ''Resistance'' expansion pack explored this whole trope in great detail and its whole narrative was seen from the point of view of the LaResistance's members.

* ''{{Trapt}}'': Heavy taxation, starvation, and general mismanagement of the kingdom has caused the populace to rise up against the old royalty. Unfortunately for them, the player is one of them -- Princess Allura, the heir apparent. And since the game begins with you inheriting the terrible, demonic powers of The Fiend (aka {{Satan}}), these particular rebels ''do'', indeed, get stabbed, burned, skinned, tortured, and worse...

* ''YggdraUnion'', Cruz's characterization plays this trope straight, but your team as a whole deconstructs this trope as they decides to go far beyond saving their hometown and personnel. [[spoiler: This involves them brutally murder incompetant, Empire-own LaResistance protecting their village for little reasons.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The Resistance were portrayed as both [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters Terrorists and Freedom Fighters]].
** The Warden faction would send you to fight bad guys and rescue sympathetic journalists, while the Crusader faction would send you to destroy water treatment plants to end the public's mass brainwashing or to [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope blow up hospitals]] to kill key political figures.

* ''HAZE'': The last Free Radical Design game, which is PS3 exclusive, revolves around this very trope. You start out as a sergeant in Mantel Global Industries' PMC (Private Military Corporation) with the purpose to fight against a rebel group, La Mano de la Promesa (or Promise Hand), that has taken over the fictional South-American region of Boa, and has been wreaking havok by ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity and the like. In the end, it turns out that Mantel are the bad guys and you, the hero, end up joining La Resistance. (This has not been hidden as a spoiler because this, the main plot-twist in the game, is given away in all advertisements/reviews/'''''the back of the frickin' box'''''.)

* ''InjusticeGodsAmongUs'': Has Batman and a team of heroes and villains going against Superman's regime, which uses fear to scare people into submission. The Justice League is divided between those who side with Bats, and those who side with Supes.

* ''RuneScape'': This game is home to Morytania, land of the dead. This is a horrific and dark place, ruled by [[PhantasySpelling vampyres]] who oppress the living inhabitants of the land and require them to pay 'blood tithes'. However, there is a resistance force known as the Myreque. Unfortunately, the odds are not in their favour, at least when the player first meets them.
* ''TheSaboteur'': Has you play an Irish ex-mechanic/driver who joined the French Resistance about three months after the Nazis occupied France. You'll find the bulk of the resistance, the Foreign Legionnaires most especially, to be {{badass}}es.
