* Parodied in ''Series/JeevesAndWooster'' where Black Shorts (as all shirt colours were taken already) use imagery very similar to one used by German and Italian fascists, but are all real BlackShirts should not be: incompetent, lazy, fumbling, very low in number, and partial to haphazardly twisted ideas (such as providing all citizens with a British-made bicycle and umbrella) . They get dissolved when their leader quits the politics.

* In the AgathaChristie UsefulNotes/WorldWarII novel ''N or M?'', Literature/TommyAndTuppence run across a number of characters who admire the Nazis and think it a pity that Britain didn't ally with Germany at the start of the war. [[spoiler: It turns out the villain has an entire book full of these: people in power who can be counted on to support the Nazis in case of an invasion. The villain is also an example of one, British by birth but spying for and supporting the Nazis.]]

* A good version is seen in ''PlanetHulk'', where the Imperial resistance's morale is bolstered when rumors surface of a mysterious green goliath who put a scar on the Red King's face the first time he entered the ring as a gladiator. The captions put it best, describing how they don't know their peoples' warrior history because those days are long gone, that their fighting streak ended with their fathers' fathers. They don't know how to fight, but all of a sudden... they ''do''.

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, 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]]
