* In ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'', there's the Black Sun clan, a nomadic nation of oddly tan-skinned drow who lives on the edges of the underworld's settled lands. They're usually divided into small tribes and prey on the weak or work as mercenaries, but when they unite they are a serious threat to even the most powerful city-states.

* In ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', there are the Gruul Clans of Ravnica, a loosely organized affiliation of clans and tribes of humans, goblins, giants and centaurs led by the cyclops Borborygmos. They used to be the guild responsible for maintaining Ravnica's wildernesses, but as the plane became covered by urban growth and what nature was left taken over by the Simic, Golgari and Selesnya, the Gruul were written out of the Guildpact and stripped of all the protection and benefits of a guild, leaving them as bands of roving, angry barbarians hungry for revenge and lashing out at the world they feel betrayed them. Their modern-day lifestyle chiefly consists of forcibly taking over an area, pillaging it for all it's worth, and squatting in the ruins until all resources are exhausted, at which point they move to a new area and repeat the process.

* ''VideoGame/KingOfDragonPass'' is basically a fantasy barbarian tribe simulator. Subverted in that, while warlike and, well, barbaric by present-day standards, they have a lot of hidden depths and a culture that places a high emphasis on learning, literacy and commerce. And, ofcourse, they're the good guys (arguably even more so in ''{{Runequest}}'', where they are traditionally put against a civilized, evil [[TheEmpire empire]]).

* In VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas the Khans are a post-apocolyptic version of a barbarian tribe. Caesar's Legion is a collection of barbarian tribes assimilated into one massive [[TheHorde Horde]] by a highly-educated man with a love of Roman history. Honest Hearts includes the White Legs, a band of savage tribals [[spoiler:trained by [[{{Foil}} Ulysses]]]] who possess military hardware after raiding a weapons cache.

** The [[OurOgresAreDifferent Ogres]] are little different from the Greenskins, their only concern is what to eat and where. They are an invasive migrating raiders driven from their old homes by some cataclysm, and now roam the world hunting their next meal.

** The Imperium designates 'Feral Worlds' as planets with a medieval technological and cultural state. These worlds may barely be aware that the Imperium exists beyond legends of 'sky warriors' that occasionally take tithes on behalf of the GodEmperor, but their warrior cultures and frequently inhospitable conditions make the planets natural recruiting grounds for [[BadassArmy Imperial Guard]] regiments or [[SuperSoldier Space Marine]] chapters. The most famous Feral World is probably Fenris, the cold and barbaric home of the Space Wolves.
** The [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orks]] have shades of this trope - their culture is centered around waging WAAAGH!!!, their political structure is nothing more sophisticated than "do wot da [[LargeAndInCharge Warboss and da Nobz]] say," and their technology is decidedly crude if occasionally remarkably effective. Some Ork tribes have managed to carve out mighty empires, while more traditional clans like the Snakebites or the Feral Orks exist on a more tribal level.

** As it turns out, the Stormcast Eternals of ''TabletopGame/AgeOfSigmar'' are the souls of the ancient tribal humans who refused to bend the knee to Chaos back when the world was young and were subjugated and slaughtered for it, now rescued, resurrected and rearmed by Sigmar to fight their old enemies once again. If the Norscans are Vikings, then the Stormcast Eternals are the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Einherjar Einherjar]].

* In ''Fanfic/RonmanTheBarbarian'', a ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' [=AU=] based off of ''Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian'', there's the Actuarians, Ronman's tribe.



* Creator/RobertEHoward's Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian often leads this. However improbable it is that he is always taken in and rises to the top.

The Barbarian Tribe is usually portrayed as a band of barely-literate, and often chaotic warriors. They have no problem burning villages, [[KickTheDog dog-kicking]], playing polo with severed heads, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking even stealing cable]]. In a work of fiction, they may form the mook army of the DarkLord, EvilPrince, or [[KnightTemplar religious fanatic]]. To fit their comparatively primitive status, they will wear rough clothing, like PeltsOfTheBarbarian.

* In ''[[FanFic/TheDearSweetieBelleContinuity Dear Scootaloo]]'', it is revealed that Pegasi were once a race of warriors who often [[MightMakesRight abandoned foals they deemed to be sick and weak]] (like Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy). While they've now mostly abandoned this mindset, some still cling onto their brutal beliefs [[spoiler: such as [[TheSocialDarwinist Feather]] [[GeneralRipper Duster]]]].
