Added DiffLines:

** More apparent in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' and it's corresponding toy line; the good guys, Maximals, were made primarily of mammals and birds, while the bad guys, the Predacons, were dinosaurs and insects.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'', a gang by the name of Nines marks its members by cutting off their left pinky finger (hence the name). It has the added benefit of making things easier for anyone looking for an assassin who's missing his left pinky.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' has a rather literal example of this; soldiers of honourable House Stark wear noseless bascinets, soldiers of the militant House Baratheon wear burgonets, rich House Lannister wears fancy custom helmets based of the Japanese kabuto, ruthless House Bolton wears cabassets, the oriental House Martell wears turban helmets, and sea-raiding House Greyjoy wears cottonwool caps and light sallets.

* Wrestling/{{Daffney|Unger}}'s [[http://prowrestling.wikia.com/wiki/Daffney%27s_All-Star_Squad All-Star Squad]], is a literal example.

* Wrestling/DragonGate is known for dividing it roster into stables, with unique color schemes to identify them. Most follow pretty loose themes, but significant to this trope are: Tozawa-Juku (cram school students), the Deep Drunkers (alcoholic miscreants), the Florida Brothers ({{Fake American}}s), Do FIXER (a dance troupe), and the Millennials (young Mexican luchadors who are mostly [[FakeNationality Japanese]]).

* The "West Side Niggaz", usually bowdlerized in western media to "West Side Boys" for obvious reasons, were a Sierre Leonian [[AfricanTerrorists terrorist group]] who were influenced by American rap culture, particularly TupacShakur. Notably, they were already part of another terrorist group when their leader, a Pac fan, decided they would effect an American "gangsta" persona. Ironically, they were considerably more brutal than their American namesakes, employing ChildSoldiers, forcing children to murder their own parents and buying heavy arms off corrupt UN peacekeepers with conflict diamonds. They achieved brief notoriety by kidnapping a patrol of Royal Irish Regiment soldiers during the British intervention in Sierra Leone. This proved to [[BullyingADragon a fatal mistake]], and the organization was all but annihilated by [[TheModernDayRambo the SAS]] and [[BritsWithBattleships British paratroopers.]]

* In ''YTheLastMan'', the [[StrawFeminist Daughters of the Amazon]] (the core group at least, there are various wannabes) take this to the extreme with ritual mastectomies. Needless to say, having a mutilated/missing breast rapidly becomes a RedRightHand in post {{Gendercide}} North America.

** Most recently, the [[WeHelpTheHelpless Minutemen]] of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}''. Naming themselves after the historical Minutemen who defended towns and villages during the American Revolution isn't so far-fetched given the game is set in Boston, but choosing to dress in 18-Century costume and calling their home-made laser weapons "muskets" definitely is going a bit far towards cultivating the image of their namesake.

* ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'' has a few, whose respective Hats are all based on their stance towards augmentations. Detroit's Derelict Row Ballers are a "normal" street gang that [[FantasticRacism absolutely hate augs]] and "[[FantasticSlur hanzers]]" and rely on strength in numbers. The Motor City Bangers see augmentation as an extension of "bling culture" and have pimped out [[BlingBlingBANG gold-plated]] [[ArtificialLimbs cybernetic limbs]] which make them tougher stronger. Needless to say, the [=DRB=]'s and the [=MCB=]'s don't get along. The Harvester in Hengsha, however, have fully embraced augmentations and [[{{Transhumanism}} transhumanism]] and worship TheSingularity, have modded themselves up with lots of scary looking industrial prosthetics and 'harvest' augments from hapless civilians in a manner similar to OrganTheft.
