* The Faith Militant, or Swords and Stars, in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' consists of two armed orders: the Warrior's Sons and the Poor Fellows. The former is made up of knights and nobles, while the latter's members are commoners. Both of these orders were banned for over two hundred years, [[spoiler:but Cersei Lannister resurrects them as part of a political bargain with the Faith. The carnage of the ongoing wars creates a major revival in religious fervor, causing both orders to swell in rank and rapidly become uncontrollable. By the end of ''A Feast for Crows,'' the results of an [[GambitPileup implosion of machinations]] include Cersei being arrested by the Faith.]]

Added DiffLines:

* An odd off-hand example, but in ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' near the end, the Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and various Protestant sects all reunite with forgiveness and a mutual laying-of-hands ceremony, to pursue a global crusade against Islam, led by the newly established multi-sect Militant Order of Saint Louis, into which the protagonist is inducted as a commander and instructor.

* Gralsritter[[note]]lit. translated from German as "Grail's knight"[[/note]] is an order within Congregation for the Sacraments of Septian Church in [[VideoGame/KisekiSeries The Legend of Heroes Series]] responsible for investigating and retrieving lost ancient artifacts across Zemuria. The order is divided into three rank; A base class called Squire, a promoted squire called Knight who is assigned to support one of twelve special (and also strongest) knights called Dominion chosen by manifestation of power dubbed as "Stigma". While investigating artifacts sound like a harmless job for normal archeologists, people in the order are capable fighters. This is justified because there is also an arguably evil [[AncientConspiracy ancient order]] with the same purpose filled with members with inhuman strenght and fighting capabilities. So far, Gralsritter members encountered in the series are in the players' side. However, the church's intention hasn't been fully revealed.

** Played again in ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' - again CrystalDragonJesus Church with an army. Given, this time, it isn't just a Church - it's a country, a [[strike:country ran-by-and-pretty-much-is that church]] theocracy. The game's TheChick, TheScrappy, and the QuirkyMinibossSquad / PsychoRangers, in addition to the BigBad, as well as several other characters are from this military. Some of the non-militants, like Ion for example, have kick ass combat abilities.

* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' has Sister Schach, a kindly nun and battle-ready knight of the Belkan Saint Church. And after the post-[=StrikerS=] TimeSkip, [[spoiler: Sein, Otto, and Deed of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Numbers Cyborgs]]]] have joined the Belkan Saint Church's ranks. There is also [[spoiler:Vivio]], [[CloneJesus literal Saint King of that church]], though she hates being called by her rank... And she IS called so. On regular basis.

* ''Literature/TheTraitorSonCycle'' has the Order of St. Thomas, a religious order of {{Magic Knight}}s raised to fight against the Wild. They're extremely well-trained and so silent, even the Wild can't detect them.



* The vampire-killing organization in ''Series/{{Ultraviolet}}'' appears to be some kind of spin-off of the Catholic Church.
** Specifically - at least according to one Code V, it's connected to the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, formerly known as TheInquisition.
