** Completely averted by Captain Zhao from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}''. Although he is the man who launched the nukes that hit Boston in the first place, he clearly regrets his actions, and willingly seeks assistance from the [[PlayerCharacter Sole Survivor]] (an American citizen) so that he can finally go home after 200 years.

** Red Scare made an appearance in the live-action series as well, but in a completely different form. There, he was a 25-year-old Soviet combat android designed for one purpose: to kill UsefulNotes/JimmyCarter. A group of diehard Russian commandos (or something) unearth it as part of a poorly-explained plan to destroy the U.S. Postal System, but the robot goes haywire (at the exact same time as Jimmy Carter arrives in town for a book signing).

* ''TheTick'' parodied this trope with a villain-for-hire actually called the Red Scare, who would take jobs dressing up in supervillain attire themed around communist Russian symbology, pretend to menace some major public place, and then get defeated by his customers in a staged fight. The whole affair went hilariously awry when the Red Scare's customer was late to arrive, and the Tick, mistaking him for a real supervillain, attempted seriously to thwart him.

** They might actually be National Bolsheviks, a very real fringe ideology in Russia that worships the Soviet Union, albeit not for its communist ideology, but as a period of Russian supremacy and anti Americanism. National Bolsheviks may hijack Communist symbols as the Ultranationalists in the game do, but are more interested in fighting USA.

* In the 1970's action-adventure series ''TheExecutioner'', Red China is mentioned as being involved in the drug trade, which given what the CIA was up to in Cambodia and Vietnam is ironic (a similar mention is made in the ''Film/JamesBond'' film ''Film/{{Thunderball}})''. When the series was sold to Gold Eagle in the 1980's the KGB became the main villains, often portrayed as TheChessmaster behind international terrorism.
