A SisterTrope to WesternTerrorists and FarEastAsianTerrorists, AfricanTerrorists are terrorists from sub-Sahara Africa who primarily operate out of their home continent, carrying out guerilla operations against domestic and foreign governments and frequently being involved in the drug trade. They will often be {{Mook}}s to a wealthier, lighter-skinned criminal organization, typically [[WesternTerrorists Western or Slavic]].

A specific SisterTrope to this are the {{Amoral Afrikaner}}s, who are almost always white and generally better equipped PrivateMilitaryContractors, but still African in origin (generally, they are white South Africans[[note]]with Namibians and Rhodesians being other possibilities[[/note]]) and just as nasty.

* The FarCry series seems to involve these to an extent in almost every installment.
* ''Video/FarCry2'' involves two guerilla armies whose actions make them look startling like this trope. They are ostensible fighting for the people while wearing massive irony blinders. In order to get around the game revolving around shooting black people in the face, large numbers of non-black foreigners and mercenaries are included, almost to the point where finding black enemies is a challenge. Theese allies are[[PrivateMilitaryContractors PMC's]] and not terrorists, considering they're only doing it for money.
** In ''VideoGame/FarCry'', they are PMC's. In FarCry 2, it's the 2 regional factions who have brought in mercenary help.
** FarCry3 features Vaas's Pirates, who are just as psychotic and bloodthirsty as you would expect representatives of this trope to be. They are the low level grunts for Hoyt's Privateers, who are a much whiter organization. Pirates make up the enemies through about 75% of the game. Their chatter and behavior is far more cartoonishly evil than what the privateers do, and none of the pirates are sympathetic. Congratulations, Ubisoft, you mostly dodge the racism issue quite craftily in Far Cry 2, only to slam headlong into it in Far Cry 3.
