* 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.

[[AC:RealLife]]
* The [[{{Cult}} Lord's Resistance Army]], who seek to establish a "[[HidingBehindReligion Christian]]" [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalist]] state in Uganda. Or something like that. No one knows what exactly they want; some say they're Christian, others say they are followers of Acholi Nationalism, the LRA even claimed to be Muslim on one occasion. The [[CorruptChurch LRA]] is [[KnightTemplar infamous]] for their cruel tactics: They abduct children to use them as [[ChildSoldiers soldiers]] or [[SexSlave sex slaves]], [[MutilationInterrogation mutilate their victims]], and massacre whole villages. Their leader, Joseph Kony, is also widely regarded as [[AxCrazy completely insane]].
* The Somali pirates that have been kidnapping people from ships for several decades now (February of 2009).
* The Al Qaeda groups stationed in Africa recruit and train members there.
** Its Somalia-affiliated branch, Al-Shabab, is a straight example.
* Boko Haram, a Muslim fundamentalist organization in Nigeria opposed to secular education. They have burned schools and massacred students and teachers.

* Steven Obanno, an LRA leader, shows up near the beginning of ''Film/CasinoRoyale'' in a meeting with [[TheManBehindTheMan Mr. White]], in order to negotiate a deal with the criminal international banker Le Chiffre to hold the funds of his organization for safekeeping. WordOfGod is that Obanno was based on the RealLife leader of the LRA, Joseph Kony.

* Since the strip is set in a fictional African nation, it's natural enough that ComicStrip/ThePhantom has faced some African terrorists. A few groups have been shown forcefully recruiting ChildSoldiers.
