* Varies from region to region in ''VideoGame/AfterTheEndACrusaderKingsIIMod''. Some parts of America have descended into tribalism -- Viking raiders ply the Great Lakes, pirates descend from Canada to harass the East Coast, nomadic horsemen run rampant in regions of the Midwest not brought to heel by the more civilized Native Americans, and savage tribes worshiping the gods of the CthulhuMythos dominate New England -- but others, including Mexico, the Holy Columbian Confederacy, the Anabaptists, the Native American tribes of the Midwest, and the Caribbean Empire, have managed to rebuild into large-scale feudal societies.

* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' shows most of the United States gradually descending into this as the economy collapses and the [[OppressiveStatesOfAmerica tyrannical]] federal government loses control. In some places, there are militias or NGOs (though these are themselves not always nice people) who can take over in a ''relatively'' orderly manner -- e.g., the [[RightWingMilitiaFanatic Christian Marines]] in the Northeast or the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Landwehr]] in the Midwest -- but in others the chaos is complete, with (for example) Pennsylvania lapsing into utter anarchy.

* The Somali Civil War ended when multiple clan-based rebel groups overthrew the government of Siad Barre in 1991, and after that the various groups [[WeAreStrugglingTogether almost immediately turned on each other]], rather than set up a new central government. The next few years saw Somalia collapse into a mess of feuding warlords, guerrilla warfare, rampant piracy off the coast, disease and famine. The violence and anarchy, which has claimed the lives of an estimated 500,000 people, resulted in an environment that many observers equated to a real-life ''Mad Max''. It's been a slow process, but gradually, a central government has started to form in Somalia with the assistance of several African Union nations and other foreign governments, but that government continues to find itself challenged by armed groups like the Islamic militant Al-Shabaab.

** In the comic at least, he draws an explicit distinction between Chaos and Anarchy (which literally means "without leaders"). He likens it to the difference between "do-as-you-please" and "do-as-you-will". The Chaos is a temporary phase of disorder in which the repressed people vent their frustration and hostility, but it will eventually give way to a more ordered period of Anarchy in which people will be truly free and able to organize/cooperate without the oppressive fascism of the Norsefire government.
*** Or maybe it won't. Comic V doesn't really care either way, tearing down the old being his only goal. Building something new he leaves for his successor.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie'': When the Simpsons family (minus Homer) return to Springfield for the first time after it's [[DomedHometown sealed under a glass dome]] and cut off from the outside world, they find it a wrecked cityscape of seemingly abandoned ruins. The first human they meet is Moe Szyslak, who is wearing a bathrobe, two bandoliers filled with bullets and a traffic cone on his head, and pronounces himself the Emperor of All Springfield. When Barney, offscreen, denies this, Moe responds by chucking a grenade at him.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' Bender gave up his seat on the only evacuation ship just so he could participate in looting when earth was about to get destroyed (not that he doesn't steal under mundane conditions too).
** Bender displays this behavior as early as the eighth episode. When Fry accidentally discovers the smelliest object in the known universe and Prof. Farnsworth declares it's headed for Earth...
