* JRPGs seem fond of this, especially those of the SNES era. If the villain is a leader who's openly belligerent, and you enter his hometown or base of operations, you can expect to find these spouting his praises and talking about how the day where he rises to power and kills all who oppose him is at hand.

Named after the uniform worn by the [[UsefulNotes/FascistItaly Italian fascists]] and by their ineffectual [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Union_of_Fascists British imitators]]. [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany The Nazis]] did the same thing with brown shirts (who were replaced with the actually black-shirted SS after the Nazis actually took power and the brownshirts [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness had outlived their usefulness]]), and one American fascist movement wore silver shirts. Needless to say, this trope is TruthInTelevision, since every distasteful ideology has always had followers, and of course, uniforms are a very easy way of enforcing conformity, as practically ''any'' organised group from store employees to the Boy Scouts to, y'know, ''armies'' can attest to.[[note]]This is not to equate any of these latter groups with any of the former, just in case [[ThatCameOutWrong that got interpreted poorly]].[[/note]]

A variety of other lesser-known fascist movements also copied this pattern of wearing a uniform with a specific color shirt that became the nickname of their followers, such as the blueshirts of the somehow even ''more'' ineffectual [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Fascists first attempt at British fascism]] and the greenshirts of the Romanian [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Guard Iron Guard]] (who like the Nazi brownshirts were [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness disposed of once no longer useful to the fascist dictatorship]]).

They frequently serve the fairly useful purpose of explaining just how the villain got so much support overnight (namely, it was always there, the villain just managed to lead them) and, on the other hand, add a bit of NightmareFuel to a happy ending - unless they have been all killed or otherwise had their minds changed, the villain's ideology is still ''viable'' in the setting...

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' series: Anakin Skywalker. Likewise Stormtroopers follow this trope mostly (at least with the Clone Troopers), they only respond to the emperor and even those who oppose the Empire are only due to the fact their trainer cared for them so much and shown them their ProudWarriorRace Heritage to warrant such a situation. Some other Clone Troopers are disgusted by that though. This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] a bit in one of the ''Tag & Bink'' comics; a Stormtrooper goes on a little rant about how in a time of war and confusion, the Emperor brought forth peace, order, public safety, health care, and so on. Apparently he didn't know that the emperor deliberately caused said war and confusion for this very purpose.
