* Appear occasionally as minor characters in the Paris-set cop show ''Series/{{Engrenages}}'', and then the fifth season heavily features a small group of racially-integrated female Gang Bangers who are just as violent and ruthless as the male variety.

* Since it's set in TheBigRottenApple, gang bangers feature prominently in the MarvelComics miniseries, ''ComicBook/{{NYX}}''. Protagonist Kiden Nixon's police officer father is killed in front of her by one in a drive-by shooting when she's a child. She later runs afoul of Hector, a student at her school with gang connections. A CorruptCop manning the school's metal detectors is a member of the same gang, and is bribed into letting Hector smuggle in a gun with which to try and kill her, and which really starts the main plot in motion. Bobby Soul is strongly implied to have been one in the past, though he's trying to escape that life. Lastly, this sort makes up a large majority of Zebra Daddy's gang when he sends them to collect [[ComicBook/{{X 23}} one of his runaway prostitutes]], and [[spoiler:it's revealed in the finale that [[ItsASmallWorldAfterAll Daddy himself was the gang banger who gunned down Kiden's father]]]].

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': A common feature of Hive Worlds such as TabletopGame/{{Necromunda}}, which often sprawl into tunnel networks down into the earth and are far too large to effectively police. Gang members are often desperate, ruthless and accustomed to violence and so are potentially very good Imperial Guardsmen; the ''really'' tough hombres end up recruited into [[SuperSoldier Space Marine]] chapters.

** ''Videogame/EarthBoundBeginnings'' has the Bla-Bla Gang (or B.B. Gang) of Ellay, led by the {{Delinquent}} Teddy. They attack when spoken to in Ellay if Teddy isn't in the party, and Teddy himself is introduced barging in to ask who's been beating up the members of his gang. They're subject to some {{Bowdlerization}} in the English version: They [[NoSmoking no longer smoke cigarettes]] in their battle sprites.

** The Sharks of ''Videogame/EarthBound'' are something of a LighterAndSofter version of this; they're are a group of "ruffians" (comprised mostly of children, as it seems) led by Frank Fly that cause trouble in the protagonist's hometown Onett, barring the entrances to certain places and serving as the main enemies for the protagonist, [[TheAllAmericanBoy Ness]], to fight at the beginning of the game.

** In ''SaintsRowTheThird'' the Third Street Saints move to a new city run by a group called TheSyndicate, which itself is composed of three groups that act like street gangs. 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.]]

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.
