* The final stage of ''EliteBeatAgents'' features a [[AlienInvasion race of music-hating aliens that take over the world]] and outlaw music. Anyone caught singing, dancing, or enjoying music in general gets either TakenForGranite or sent to what is essentially a concentration camp. [[spoiler: However, they didn't do that just because they ''hate'' music, but because music actually ''hurts'' them, which leads to their inevitable downfall as a result of a worldwide rock concert.]]

* In the OrsonScottCard short story "Prior Restraint," a group of time travelers calling themselves the "Censorship Board" manipulate history by preventing certain great writers from publishing their work. Note that this board wasn't portrayed as completely bad -- they did this because the author in question's works would result in the death of millions of people. They actually kept a copy of the work in their library. A rare (slightly) positive portrayal.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''{{WebAnimation/RWBY}}'', an enormous Culture War figures prominently in the history of Remnant. Taking place eighty years before the start of the series, the war saw all four kingdoms fighting over issues of trade and borders, but also over, as Professor Ozpin puts it, "the destruction of all forms of art and self-expression." As a form of rebellion against this, Remnant's tradition of ColourfulThemeNaming was started.
--> '''Ozpin:''' "It was their way to demonstrate that not only would they refuse to tolerate this oppression, but neither would the generations to come."

* In the video for Music/PoetsOfTheFall's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ompevuR1644 Lift]]," an {{Ambiguous|Situation}} interpretation of the Poet County Jail officials conducting MadDreamer "Mark"'s psychiatric evaluation (with which he would agree) is that they find his brand of creativity threatening. The lone female official finishes the evaluation form by checking boxes marked "Illusionist," "Dreamer" and "Menace to society."

* ''Videogame/FallenLondon'': The Ministry of Public Decency, and their Special Constables, play this role, complete with book-burning insignia. They mostly crack down on obviously revolutionary literature and simple digs at the government (in particular the Masters of the Bazaar), but they're known to go after plays and books for stranger reasons, which is only partially explained by the fact Mr. Pages loves to steal books from the "for burning" pile and occasionally bans rare books just to have them itself. All romantic literature is also subject to heavy revision and taxation, and getting caught smuggling it is about as bad as getting caught soul-smuggling.
