* ''SinCity'' has street gangs that pop up from time to time. Considering this is FrankMiller, the street gangs are sometimes [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazis]].

* ''Manga/PeepoChoo'' has as a major character a deranged Yakuza boss named "Rockstar" Morimoto, who is obsessed with his own [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy pop-culture-derived]] idea of the African-American Gang Banger lifestyle and seeks to imitate it in every way.

Duplicate example.
[[AC:Fan Works]] * In '"FanFic/OriginStory'', Marvin, Louise's one-time pimp, is a member of the Crips. Alex is really not impressed or afraid of that at all.

* Subverted by ''Film/AmericanGangster''. Frank Lucas' gang is well-organized, reasonably disciplined, innovative, and entirely made up of African-Americans. ** It's actually a minor plot point that a law enforcement agent giving Richie a hard time didn't buy his story because he refused to believe that a black organization could outperform the Italian mafia. [[KickTheDog He then called Richie a kike]].

* Half the cast of ''Series/TheWire''. ** Subverted in that the gangs on ''Series/TheWire'' are highly organized (even the lower-level guys are shown to be at least competent, if not intelligent), moderately disciplined, innovative, and tend to be run either by Machiavellian businessmen taking college courses in macroeconomics (Stringer Bell) or ruthless, power-hungry sociopaths (Marlo Stanfield). [[TruthInTelevision Oh, and they have white gangbangers shown in Season 2]], much to the disgust of the Polish community and Nick Sobotka in particular.

* CJ and his crew, as well as most of the early antagonists in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas''. Grove Street Families is loosely based on Lime Street Pirus (a bloods offshoot that wore green), Ballaz is based on Grape Street Watts Crips (a off shoot of the crips that wore purple), Vagos on 18th Street Gang.

* The gangs of lower Taris in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic''. ** One was more focused on honor and gang loyalty than usual for the trope, the other was mostly a bunch of berserkers with little other ambition. Older members of the second gang will tell the player they used to be more like the first until a recent leadership change. * Summon your own! Masterminds in ''VideoGame/CityOfVillains'' can choose to major in Thugs, which gives the PlayerCharacter the ability to command multiethnic [=Gangbangers=] in combat. ** Not to mention the wide variety of differently-themed NPC street gangs like [[HollywoodSatanism the Hellions]], [[CastingAShadow the Skulls]], [[ElementalPowers the Outcasts]], [[OurTrollsAreDifferent the Trolls]], [[TheTriadsAndTheTongs the Tsoo]], [[AncientGrome the Warriors]], and [[CyberPunk the Freakshow]].
