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.

* The two ''Series/{{V}}'' miniseries had a youth group that followed the Visitors and helped them in their "we're only taking over for your own good, really" approach to humanity. Loosely based on the RealLife Hitler Youth. There is such a group in the [[ContinuityReboot re-imagined series]] as well.

* Ilse God-Hater in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion''. She openly despises the official religion of the Septim Empire. Turns out later in the game she's a member of the [[ApocalypseCult Mythic Dawn]], and ends up dying on the PlayerCharacter's blade.

* ''Literature/ChaosTimeline'': The fascisti.
* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': Similar to that is the huge throng of people in the continuity who are supporters of "Humanity First!", an organization opposed to the [[FantasticRacism mutant scourge]]. Of course, there are BlackShirt types on the other extreme, since there's an extreme mutant organization called "Evolution Rocks". Their most famous poster is of a hand-drawn superman-type dropping said rocks (the size of cars) on baselines below. Sort of polarizes the argument.
** Also note that it [[FollowTheLeader sounds]] ''[[FollowTheLeader exactly]]'' [[FollowTheLeader like]] "Humanity First", an anti-mutant hate group in Creator/MarvelComics.
** It gets hilarious when one PC has information about both dropped on his doorstep. Also, in a possible subversion...[[spoiler: Humanity first is right about mutants overcoming humankind. They're just wrong about it being violent]]. See the Braeburn Report.
*** For those who don't want to: [[spoiler: The current running theory listed in the Braeburn Report is that mutants are just going to ''out-breed'' humanity, which is why there are more female mutants than male, why mutants tend to be attractive, etc etc. There won't be a violent mutant uprising, there doesn't need to be -- in 5, 10, 15, 100, etc generations there will simply be more mutant children than normal human children.]]
** Sadly, Evolution Rocks isn't featured much.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Ratcliffe and his gang of neo-Nazi thugs who ally themselves with the Daleks in "Remembrance of the Daleks". Ratcliffe even mentions that he had been jailed during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII for advocating that Britain was on the wrong side (implying that he was an actual Black Shirt).

* ''DecadesOfDarkness'': New England has a group of them. For fun, they're called {{Redshirt}}s. An Anglo-Saxon revival group in Great Britain, in a ShoutOut to Creator/PGWodehouse (see above) is called the Blackshorts.
