* What the eponymous mutiny in ''Literature/KrisLongknife: Mutineer'' turns out to be. At a meeting of fleets during the dissolution of the Society of Humanity, Kris's squadron is ordered to sneak-attack a group of Earth battleships, but Kris knows that would require orders from high command that they haven't received and realizes their admiral is acting illegally. On the spot, she and the junior crew, enlisted, and Marines overthrow her captain and get the other ships to follow suit, then chase down and capture the flagship.

At a meeting of fleets during the dissolution of the Society of Humanity, Kris's squadron is ordered to sneak-attack a group of Earth battleships, battleships in hopes of getting in the first blow of TheWarOfEarthlyAggression, but Kris knows that would require orders from high command that command, which they haven't received because communications are being jammed, and realizes their admiral is acting illegally. On the spot, she and the junior crew, enlisted, and Marines overthrow her captain and get the other ships to follow suit, then chase down and capture the flagship. As a consequence the breakup happens otherwise peacefully, and Earth awards Kris its highest medal for valor.

Sheridan doesn't actually declare independence from Earth until later.

* In ''Series/{{Farscape}}'', Grayza continually goes against the orders of her high command in chasing after Crichton and Scorpius. Eventually her NumberTwo, Braca, declares her to be unfit for duty and has her arrested.

* In the pilot of ''Series/LastResort'' the captain of a US nuclear submarine refuses an order to fire four nuclear missiles at Pakistan. After the captain is relieved from command, his XO is issued the same order and also refuses. The Chief-of-the-Boat wants to follow the orders and stages an anti-mutiny. The situation is further complicated by the fact that the orders are delivered on a secondary communication network that is normally reserved for scenarios where the US has already been nuked. The captain and XO are justified in suspecting that a mutiny has taken place higher in the chain of command and are refusing the order to fire as their own anti-mutiny.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', Sten will attempt to challenge you for control of the party at a certain point of the game if he's at low approval, thinking that your gallivanting around the outskirts of Ferelden is akin to taking a vacation by deserting. If he's at high approval, he'll merely state his opinions and put it at that.
** Intriguingly, his approval rises when you crush his mini-coup, since that [[MightMakesRight proved him wrong and you're clearly capable enough to be in charge]].

** In [[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS1E8TheBattle "The Battle"]], the Ferengi [=DaiMon=] Bok engages in a mission of personal vendetta against Picard for [[spoiler:killing his son in battle years before]]. [[NumberTwo Riker]] tries to get Kazago, Bok's second-in-command, to stop Bok. Eventually, Kazago arrests Bok [[BlueAndOrangeMorality for engaging in a non-profitable venture, a heinous crime by Ferengi standards]]. That's the reason Kazago ''gives'', at least; he only acted after Riker presented evidence that Bok was insane.

* The [[Fanfic/TheLifeAndTimesOfAWinningPony Winningverse]] prequel ''The Lunar Rebellion'' is [[FramingDevice set up as]] an in-universe memoir by heroine Shadow Kicker (with notes by descendant and ''Winning Pony'' CharacterNarrator Cloud Kicker [[SwitchingPOV as well as various entries from other characters' accounts]] to fill in what blanks Shadow can't) telling about her legendary and eponymous Anti-Mutiny against her native territory of Pegasopolis, who are rebelling against [[PrincessesRule Princess]] [[TheHighQueen Celestia]] because they think [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen she's failing at her duties and having anypony who politically opposes her killed]]. The latter is actually not true, but she does admit to the former, and yet she just doesn't think abdicating is the proper penance. [[spoiler:And it isn't, the Lunars are simply Pegasus-supremacists, even under Rightly Doo, and feel betrayed that Celestia hangs out in Canterlot with all those snobby Unicorns rather than with them and that her attempts to prevent a war with the Griffons despite their obvious hostilities involve her kissing up to them rather than making it clear that the raids won't be tolerated.]]

* In ''SuikodenIV'', Snowe is reluctant to stick around after the Pirate Brandeau opens fire on their ship and he's caught in the blast, killing most of the men around him and temporarily paralyzing his arm. The rest of the crew is shocked when he orders a retreat, since that would mean leaving the ship they're escorting to the pirates. Add in how the soldiers ''already'' resented him for being put in charge [[RookieRedRanger despite just graduating]], and the stage was set for one of these.
