* Infamously, the ''Literature/AnarchistCookbook'' contained amateur recipes for homemade explosives (seriously, it's a ''very'' bad idea to [[DoNotTryThisAtHome try this at home]]). There was no overt connection to Anarchism as a serious philosophy except that the author seemed very interested in blowing things up as a form of protest.

Added DiffLines:

* Goblin Anarchists in ''VideoGame/GoldenKroneHotel'' have sticks of dynamite and [[ActionBomb explode violently]] upon death. Hope you've got some bullets or offensive magic to take them out at a distance. And if you're not currently human, you can't use either of these things, so you have no choice but to attack them in melee and take the blast.

* SeventhSea has an entire Secret Society of [[BombThrowingAnarchist Bomb Throwing Anarchists]] with its own splatbook. While the Rilisciare's reasons for being anti-authoritarian (nobles in the setting have access to sorcery that is [[spoiler: causing the barrier between the physical world and Hell to slowly weaken, and non-powered nobles have a history of betraying the Free Thinkers]]) are clearly stated, the society's history includes the point where they extended their enmity to include ''anyone'' with power, even mundane political power. Plus, all the good explosives abilities and equipment are in their splatbook (including the "Arson" and "Bomb-making" skills and a coat with ''hidden explosives in the buttons'').
* The Warhammer 40,000 spin-off game Gorkamorka featured the Gretchin Revolutionary Committee, who were pretty much just a goblin-based parody of this trope.

* Dark Kat from SWATKats fits this mold. He wanted to create a new city where "lawlessness was the law of the land" and believed he could achieve that by blowing things up in general. His first appearance actually saw him try to drop a nuke on Megakat City.

* The titular VillainProtagonist ''{{Literature/Fantomas}}'' is initially claimed to be a radical French anarchist who commits all sorts of crimes in the hopes of brining down civilisation. However, in practice he comes across as more of a CardCarryingVillain [[PlayedForDrama played dead straight]], a [[{{Sadist}} sadistic]] [[TheSociopath psychopath]] and SerialKiller with a [[DiablocialMastermind vast criminal network]] who commits a range of violent crimes ForTheEvulz. He is [[TheBadGuyWins never caught or killed]] in any of the stories and on the occasions that he is, he is either FakingTheDead or even [[FrameUp framing innocent people to be arrested or executed in his place]], and it is likely that his only real goal is simply infamy.

* Aversion: Ryan from TheNamelessMod ''looks'' like he's just a TerroristWithoutACause at first, who happens to be fighting against the BigBad of the game. But when you talk to him and learn that he's an anarchist, he explains his motives, he comes off as much more sympathetic, and it makes him into a [[ChaoticGood different type of character.]]

UsefulNotes/{{Anarchism}} is an umbrella term for a bunch of views that advocate the reduction or elimination of hierarchic power and its replacement by various forms of voluntary non-hierarchical cooperation. Historically, many anarchists encourage nonviolent means for this goal.

Since the 19th century, after anarchism began to take form as a social movement, news, propaganda, and fiction have vilified anarchists as [[AxCrazy maniacs]] who [[ForTheEvulz just want nothing but]] chaos, destruction, and anarchy for anarchy's sake. Anarchists often fill the role of TerroristsWithoutACause. This also tended to be the stereotypical image of communists for many Westerners until the [[BigBrotherIsWatching "Orwellian intellectual infiltrating the government"]] image gained popularity starting in the 1940s.
