** Season 12 gives us the two sides in the civil war on Chorus, the Federal Army and New Republic. The war has been going on for so long that most of the worthwhile soldiers were already killed. To put it lightly, these guys look up to the Blood Gulch Crew, which tells a lot about their standards. Most of the actual fighting is done by mercenaries, who are in fact working together to kill off the planet's population and steal the alien relics kept within.

* ''SpriggsAHalo3Machinima'' unlike the Reds and Blues above, a lot of the characters are real ''{{Badass}}es'', but they are stuck in Zambi 7 with nothing to do, and are placed there to rot.

%%* ''Series/DadsArmy ''* ''Series/DadsArmy'' is set in the British Home Guard during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and features an arrogant but inept brigade commander, his sensible but ignored second-in-command, and the five men under their command, three of whom are over 60 years old, one of whom is a conniving spiv, and one of whom is a wet-nosed mummy's boy.

%%* ''Series/FTroop''* ''Series/FTroop'' is set at Fort Courage, a western frontier fort and dumping ground for the worst of the US Army after the Civil War. The commanding officer is a clumsy buffoon who only rose to high office after accidentally being in the right place at the right time during the war's final battle at Appomattox, the lookout has such bad eyesight that he can't even see the end of his own nose, and the two most prominent [=NCOs=] have various criminal enterprises going in partnerships with the local native tribe, the Hekawis.



%%* ''Series/ItAintHalfHotMum''.

%%* ''Series/ItAintHalfHotMum''.* ''Series/ItAintHalfHotMum'' has a Royal Artillery Concert Party whose CO and second-in-command are {{Upper Class Twit}}s with minimal interest in actually running things, a DrillSergeantNasty Battery Sergeant Major who actually does run things with sadistic glee, and a motley assortment of Bombardiers and Gunners (equivalent to corporals and privates in the Army) who may have artistic talent (mostly) but no talent whatever for soldiering.

Simply put, military humor, LoveItOrHateIt. This particular brand of funny centers on stereotypically dim-witted military personnel, asshole officers, and naive recruits.

** In the 8th season, we learn that the Red and Blue armies are actually [[spoiler: used for training simulations, with the soldiers consisting of the lowest-rated troops that think they're fighting a real war.]] When we see other Red and Blue teams, we see that they can be almost as stupid, if not even more so, than the main teams.

* In a sharp contrast to the original book's militaristic and fascist beliefs. nationalistic beliefs ''Anime/MayaTheBee'' is pretty light on army matters: the hive isn't as militaristic and Maya is free to wander around the world. What it also includes is an army of ants who is parodied as dignified and proud but is actually pretty shortsighted and thoughtless.



* ''{{ComicBook/Asterix}}'': Roman soldiers are portrayed as a bunch of weak and incompetent losers. And quite a few centurions aren't that better.

* ''{{ComicBook/Asterix}}'': Roman soldiers are portrayed as a bunch of weak and incompetent losers. And quite a few centurions aren't that better. The army is very lacking in efficiency and organisation, the spirit is that everyone is only out for themselves and everyone treats their job as a chore.
