* In MarvelComics' ''[[ComicBook/{{Exiles}} The New Exiles]]'', Doctor Doom, after taking control of the world, not only bans culture (comedy in particular), but also people's ability to show any strong emotion other than love and adoration toward him and hatred toward [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' the heroes outright refuse to create a law or a police force to enforce Retroculture. They distrust the government having that much power and intrusiveness into people's lives, and consider it the responsibility of each citizen to monitor and ostracize those using forbidden technology or rap music. This works out much better than ham-fisted enforcement, and they celebrate by tearing down all the modern buildings to erect churches and homes in a more tasteful classical style.

* 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."
