** Unlike Manticore with its different peer ranks, all Grayson Steadholders have the same official rank. They also have significantely more authority over their Steadings than even the highest Manticoran nobles. This is slowly changing thanks to the Mayhew Restoration, which reinforces the authority of the Protector (basically, the king). Historically, there has been a constant power struggle between the Sword (the Protector) and the Keys (the Steadholders). Additionally, according to the Grayson constitution, each Steadholder is allowed no more than 50 armsmen (personal guards), thus preventing them from building a large military force loyal to them alone.

* Imperial space in ''Frontier'' VideoGame/{{Elite}} games.In Frontier's ''Videogame/{{Elite}}'' series, the Empire is an interstellar power that bases itself upon the Roman Empire, with patrician-like Senators that have almost unlimited legal freedom, a regulated slave trade, and a heredity ruler. The decadent Empire is the rival of the corporate Federation and the free Alliance. Solar systems can be aligned to one of the three powers or Independent, and can have any government type regardless of affiliation, such as a Federation-aligned Feudal system or an Empire-aligned Communist system.

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', we know the Zeons are the bad guys because they [[strike:have hereditary nobility]] murdered billions with [[DepopulationBomb nerve gas]] and a ColonyDrop. Also, they have hereditary nobility.
** The Zanscare Empire of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam]]'' takes the feudalism schtick even further. Their entire stated goal is to reinvigorate human society by replacing the increasingly impotent democracy of the Earth Federation with a return to a traditional feudal way of life. Might have actually done some good if it hadn't been for EvilChancellor Fonz Ka Gatie manipulating things for his own benefit.
