Morning Star acts like TheMafia, the Deckers are hackers who dress like they're from {{Tron}} and [[MaskedLuchador the Luchadores]] are, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin well, you can probably guess.]]

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' of all games now has them. Team Skull, the villain team of ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' are a mish-mash of this, Punk culture and JapaneseDelinquents. Their gesticulation, speech patterns, and attire, as well as their more informal tone compared to previous villain groups, make them resemble American street gangs. Specifically, their tanned skin tone, as well as the fact that Guzma and Plumeria are named after plants prominent in Central and South America, gives them a resemblance to Latino street gangs from the West Coast.

Unlike most villain teams of the series, they are far less ambitious in their villainy, being primarily failed trainers who commit petty crimes (usually Pokemon theft) in order to survive and are largely seen as annoyances more than anything.

* Regularly appear in ''ComicBook/ThePunisher'', though they understandably get very little development before their grisly deaths.

* The ''Literature/JillKismet'' series takes place in an UrbanFantasy Southwestern city called Santa Luz, so the gangs are mostly Latino. The barrio is noted as a place where it's not safe to be white like Jill, though the city's [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent Weres]] (mostly of Native American stock) also inhabit the barrio and the gangs know better than to mess with them. In book four, Jill takes Gilberto, a gang member who lost his brother to a DirtyCop in book three, as her apprentice.

* ''Series/{{CSI NY}}'' had the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucchese_crime_family#Family_crews Tanglewood Boys]] on two occasions. They're the sons of mafia members and still rather connected to it, but tend more toward typical gangbanger tendencies themselves. Based on a real group, though they're now pretty much defunct.

[[folder:WebOriginal]]
* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', the Nightstalkers are a gang of young thugs with big plans for rising up in the Maar Sulais criminal hierarchy.
* [[WebOriginal/AcademyOfSuperheroes ASH]]: there are lots and lots of these, some with [[GangOfHats themes]] like "all-cyborg" or "voodoo-esque powers". Pretty much all of them have exclusively paranormal membership. Hard to compete with people who can shoot lightning and throw cars when you can't.

* In ''Film/FastFive'' a reasonably well armed gang try move on Brian and Mia-and later Hobbs' team-when they enter the favela. First time, [[TheBusCameBack Vince]] (who's presumably a close associate if not in the gang himself) calls them. Second time, Hobbs and his crew [[AwesomeMoment just flash their military grade fire power]] and the gang wisely backs off.

Gangbangers often fill the same role as TheMafia, but fit into a different archetype. Gangbangers are usually poor criminals, disorganized mobs who patrol ghettos, selling crack and getting into fights with rival gangs just for the hell of it, whereas Mafias are intelligent, very wealthy, diplomatic, often have connections to "legitimate" authorities, and more likely to plan assassinations and ambushes than just go around getting into fights. The two can overlap, but the distinctive dress will usually make the difference clear; Mafias wear suits, ties, sunglasses and (if period-appropriate) fedoras, while Gangbangers wear head bandanas, wifebeaters and torn jeans.
