** The next game in the series, ''VideoGame/InFamousSecondSon'', introduces the Department of Unified Protection, a new branch of the military created in the wake of the Beast's rampage specifically to capture or kill Conduits. Ironically, [[WellIntentionedExtremist their leader]] is a Conduit whose powerful enough to [[SuperEmpowering imbue her soldiers with weaker variations of her powers]], making them even tougher.

* And post ''New52'', from the pages of ''Batman Incorporated'', the DCU now has Spyral. At least one of their ploys was to create the FemmeFatale Batwoman, hoping she'd get close enough to Bats to uncover his identity (instead she pulled a HeelFaceTurn). They know full well how unpopular this agenda would make them, so they prefer to recruit rebels, rogues and washouts over genuine patriots, and operate heavily in private.

* The Mandalorians (aka Boba Fett's people) in the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' are basically a ProudWarriorRace of mercenaries, although a decent chunk of their job description involved battling Jedi using their SwissArmyWeapon suits. And oftentimes losing to them. They ''really'' need to improve on that. Still, they're one of the few forces that can be counted on to give the superpowered Jedi or Sith a fight of it at least.

** The Sentinels are [[GiantRobot Giant]] {{Killer Robot}}s equipped with gene-scanning equipment created to track down and fight mutants. They vary between being intended as "police", being programmed to track and capture mutants so they can be imprisoned for life in internment camps, or just being anti-mutant soldiers for a foreseen war, but they have a bad tendency to [[TurnedAgainstTheirMakers go rogue and attempt to wipe out all humans as well]].

** Also in the X-Men stories, there was [[PuttingOnTheReich Genosha]], the high-tech nation which dealt with its "mutant problem" by conscripting the mutants into government service. They had unusually many super types (hundreds/thousands for a population of a few million) and were deadly afraid they'd go rampant and take over the country (which also [[TheExtremistWasRight actually happened]] later on, when international opinion forced them to liberalize), so they employed a specially trained and equipped militarized police force to keep them in check. Enter the Magistrates, a [[BadassArmy heavily armed gendarmerie]] in [[DoomTroops cool, "evil" uniforms]] who fought the X-Men on various occasions when they tried to incite rebellion among the Genoshan mutants.

** ''VideoGame/InfamousSecondSon'' gives [[BigBrotherIsWatching the more organized]] [[StateSec United States Department of United Protection]], who are tasked with rounding up or eliminating Conduits: or, as the DUP refers to them, "[[FantasticSlur Bioterrorists]]". In their case, they are [[HunterOfHisOwnKind lead by a Conduit]] who has empowered most of them with her [[DishingOutDirt concrete-based powers]].

* The Wiki/SCPFoundation deals with and keeps imprisoned many strange people, but enough about the staff: Their charges include a massively telepathic teen, a shape-shifter who is 30 times better then you (and anyone/thing else), and possibly Lilith, Cain and Abel themselves (Lilith is Lilith but maddeningly mum about her exact relationship to Cain and Abel; Cain is a gentle man who happens to have the same biologically corrosive power as [[ComicBook/XMen Wither]] while Abel is a BloodKnight with ResurrectiveImmortality).
