* ''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.

* Sinclair Lewis's 1935 novel ''ItCantHappenHere'' chronicles the rise of American fascism based on religious fundamentalists (duped, more or less), economic discontent, and hatred of Communists and socialists. President Buzz Windrip's supporters organize themselves into paramilitary Minute Men units complete with blue uniforms

* In SMStirling[='=]s ''Terminator 2'' series (on which no {{Terminator}} movies were based), "Luddite" environmental extremists work for [=SkyNet=] because wiping out humanity is a ''good'' thing. Even Skynet thinks they're crazy.
* ''{{Timeline-191}}'': Being an AlternateHistory, Creator/HarryTurtledove's series features the SS-counterparts in the form of the Freedom Party Stalwarts. The series also mentions the Silver Shirts, who were organised by Oswald Mosley and [[UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill Evil Churchill]] in 1920s Britain (which had lost the First World War).

* 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.
