* ''VideoGame/{{Elite}}'' features star systems with different government classifications, one of which is Anarchy. Anarchic systems tend to be the most infested with SpacePirates out of all of them.

* ''VideoGame/{{Elite}}'' features star systems with different government classifications, one of which is Anarchy. Anarchic systems tend to be the most infested with SpacePirates out of all of them. These systems can be very profitable to bounty hunters, as most ships will be wanted ''somewhere'', and the Kill Warrant Scanner is built precisely to detect where.

* Averted by the Ma-Non in ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'', who are a truly anarchist society, with no ruling body or centralized decision-making process whatsoever. They have just come to the collective realization that action which benefit the whole ultimately advance themselves too, and highly value equivalent exchange in their dealings. There are a handful of Ma-Non who exploit their own system to get ahead, but they're also aware that every race has a few bad eggs.

* {{Zigzagged}} in ''No God No Master'', centering around the investigation of the 1919 Anarchist Bombings, which ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as the name implies]]) were the work of Luigi Galleani and his anarchist followers. On the other hand, it makes very clear that other anarchists did not advocate these actions. In the end, it did nothing for the anarchists but get many thousands of them (violent or not) deported.

* Intentionally averted in ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'', where King Arthur comes across an anarcho-syndicalist commune of literal mud farmers. They are decidedly non-violent, particularly when compared to Arthur himself, but also extremely irritating, screaming [[PoliceBrutality "oppression"]] when Arthur grabs one of them in annoyance, yelling at him to shut up.

* As far back as the Book of Judges in Literature/TheBible, we have this quote: "There was no king in Israel those days. Everyone did as he pleased."

* {{Averted}} in Creator/EricFrankRussell's short story "...And Then There Were None". In it, an anarchic-libertarian community of Gands (they derive the name from UsefulNotes/MahatmaGandhi) is pretty orderly, and also utterly pacifistic-they employ passive resistance when the Earth military tries to coerce them.

* In ''Literature/ThePrideOfParahumans'' Vesta was intended as a peaceful anarchy after independence, but things broke down as the life support infrastructure began to fail and homicide rates skyrocketed until the Protectors' Guilds restored order. [[spoiler: Making it more like feudalism.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The Data Angels of ''VideoGame/SidMeiersAlphaCentauri'' have all the trappings of an anarchist society, and while the decentralised society isn't constantly fighting itself, it ''does'' take a hefty penalty to Police so if things start going wrong, it's much harder to keep the people in control.

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia''- abandoning the Empire and joining or forming a guild are presented with all the trappings of anarchy (everyone lives according to their own laws, don't have to join a guild if they want to make their own one-man guild, don't have to appoint a leader, and the only "authority" had is presented as people following directions out of admiration or respect rather than because they are an authority figure. The Five "Master" Guilds are just be the five largest or most productive guilds and have no authority over other guilds, and even the Don doesn't seem to have any official authority- he's someone everyone respects and obeys out of that, but it's also stated that he's just another guild member if not one with a lot of supporters), but the Guilds are the Order to the Empire's Chaos.

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''. Vault 21 was designed to have no authority figure, with the rules being that everything was decided through a gambling session. This Vault was actually one of the few that was opened up near-completely unscathed. Provided that having part of your home filled with concrete doesn't really count as a major problem.

* {{Averted}} or even {{inverted}} in Literature/TheDispossessed by UrsulaKLeguin. Much of the plot revolves around Shevek (the main character) fleeing his anarchist people because they've become ''too'' unchaotic, with an unofficial government firmly in charge.
