* "The Blow Out", a ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' cartoon, had [[CrossDressingVoices Lucille]] [[LargeHam La Verne]] - [[HeyItsThatVoice aka]] [[Disney/SnowWhite The Queen]] - as [[NoNameGiven The Bomber]]. He adorably is foiled by [[CharacterizationMarchesOn a child version]] of Porky Pig.

*** It should be notable that by the mid-nineties in which the setting is set, the only Anarch holdings left in the world is the US West Coast, which is being invaded by the Sabbat from Mexico, the Camarilla from the east, and the Kuei-Jin coming in by boat from the east, which showcases just how successful the Anarchs are.

* Donn Throgg from ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'' is a subversion. His M.O. is typical of the trope, but politically he is a right-leaning (relatively speaking, he's still quite socialist by any standards) union activist, who saw violence as the only way to stop the rampant abuse of orcs, half-orcs and poor humans by Tarantian factory owners.

If you can convince him to continue the struggle by peaceful means, Throgg eventually runs for President of Tarant.

* In ''Film/{{Suffragette}}'' the protagonists are technically women's rights activists, not anarchists. However, after they [[spoiler: have blown up the (empty) manor of a member of parliament]] one of the men in power says something about considering this "level of anarchy" inacceptable. Though it's not as if the suffragists weren't [[PoliceBrutality beaten up by the police]] before that.

The "bomb-throwing" image of the anarchist was locked into the mindset of the public after the 1886 Haymarket Square riot in Chicago, where eight anarchists went on trial for a bomb that was thrown at a rally (they were not actually charged with throwing it, as some weren't even at the rally, instead they were charged with inciting the action, being influential anarchist figures in Chicago). Most people had probably never paid much attention to one of the 19th century's many radical social movements before, but the sensationalized spread of the incident left a negative impression in media for a long time. The assassination of several heads of governments by anarchists during the following twenty years didn't help them either.

* The anarchist in the ''{{Blackadder}} the Third'' episode "Sense and Senility", who actually throws a CartoonBomb at the Prince Regent, while ranting about such industrial inventions as the "Going-up-and-down-a-bit-and-then-moving-along Gertrude".

* The Trope Image is taken from Larry Gonick's ''Cartoon History of the United States'', part of his ''ComicBook/CartoonHistoryOfTheUniverse'' series, humourously lampshaded the common stereotype of anarchists as [[OlderThanTheyThink mad, bearded bombers]] ("smell like garlic... foreign accent... burning fuse") during the 1880s Red Scare after the Haymarket Bombing.

** Subverted in his later novel ''Fall of Giants'' with the character Rosa Hellman, a journalist and self-described anarchist, who explains her philosophy: "Anarchy is the belief that no one has the inherent right to rule." She advocates consciousness-raising and social reform, rather than violence.

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 [[AnarchyIsChaos just want nothing but chaos]], [[ForTheEvulz destruction]], [[CaptainObvious and anarchy]]. 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.
