including medabots into the anime folder - the world tournament towards the end of the series gives more examples than I provided
Added DiffLines:
* Numerous teams in the World Robattle tournament in ''Medabots,'' with the most obvious example being Team Mexico, which is made up of 3 guys that look exactly the same, and only say the word "amigo."

** 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.

* The Hellfire Club in the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}''. What started out as a gentleman's club was eventually turned into the mutant version of TheMafia. All of the major members of the club dress like 18th century British [[AristocratsAreEvil aristocrats]] and refer to each other as royalty with a [[ChessMotifs chess motif]]. * ''TwistedToyfareTheater'' parodied this when they showed the Warriors in the modern world as Wall Street traders. The traders all unite under the leadership of Alan Greenspan, who is murdered by Gordon Gecko, who pins the crime on the Warriors. They run afoul of such groups as the Mutually Assured Destruction Fund (Communists; capitalism is "but one of the MANY positive aspects [they] are experiencing under Perestroika"), the Bear-Stearns Stern Bears, the Voodoo Economists, the ninja Night Traders, the Closing Belles...

[[folder:Web Original]] * SurvivalOfTheFittest usually averts this with its gangs, even in the WretchedHive Denton where the gangs are literally everywhere. The only two gangs with a real "hat" are the evangelistic KnightTemplar Prophets, who dress in priest robes and terrorize the "unfaithful", and the AxCrazy Jackals who're collectively insane enough to make SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker shit himself, and at any one time just want to cause as much mayhem and chaos as they can. They're often said to be more like animals than men. * In Machinima/RedVsBlue, the Red and Blue armies wear, respectively... red and blue. Big shock, right? The only characters with armor colors outside of this is the medic working for both armies (who wears purple), the colorblind recruit who accidentally goes to the wrong base at first (in yellow), and the Freelancers, who are... definitely not red ''or'' blue. * [[WebOriginal/AcademyOfSuperheroes ASH Universe]]: The New York Macoute have a pseudo-voodoo theme going. The Cyber-Nostra are a gang of cyborgs as are the Rust Brothers and, as for the Jolly Molecules, they're best described as junior [[MadScientist MadScientists]]. [[/folder]]

Added an entry (Webcomic/Autumn Bay) for cross-linking purposes and completeness.
Added DiffLines:
* In ''Webcomic/AutumnBay'', there are various street gangs in Autumn Bay (evidenced by graffiti and dialogue), each of which has a theme, credo, or other distinguishing trait. Specifically, we have heard about the Unwanted (and their motto, "give me your poor, your tired, your broken, beaten, and damned") and the Morlocks (whose turf is the Elysium subway station).

** There's also the Three Families of Vegas. The Chairmen all emulate the {{Camp}} of the RatPack, including [[JiveTurkey speaking like them.]] The White Glove Society are all pompous {{Upper Class Twit}}s who believe they're better than others and wear [[WhiteMaskOfDoom White Masks of Doom]] for the mysterious allure (when in actuality, it just makes them really creepy). The Omertas are essentially TheMafia and are all rude and foul-mouthed.

* ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'': brings us many different gangs with their own style. The aptly named Hatters all wear large battered top hats, wear either a red or white shirt and wield a machete and pistol. The Bottle street Gang are based in a whiskey distillery, and thus use a highly volatile alcoholic firebomb as their ranged weapon alongside a machete, but otherwise have bland clothing. The Dead Eels are river pirates with lots of piercings and tattoos, use cargo hooks in a melee and bottles of acid from the local mollusc population as throwing weapons, and are also the only regular gang to recruit women. The Butchers dress for their job in bloody white aprons and use either machetes or disc saws. The Whalers are dressed entirely in thick leather coats and [[GasMaskMooks creepy gas masks]] used in the whaling industry for protection, and use long knives, wrist mounted crossbows and black magic. Finally, the Brigmore Witches are the only gang to consist entirely of women, have vines and plant-like markings on their bodies, turn dark green when aggressive, use thorn-swords and magic in combat. Naturally, the army, city watch, and Overseers have their own uniforms as official organisations.
