* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBindingBlade'' and its prequel ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade'', despite being based in a MedievalEuropeanFantasy setting, actually averts this. The Sacaeans are based on the Mongolians, with their mounted archers, asian features, very pagan religion, and nomadic nature, but are also a generally peaceful people who are happy minding their own business roaming across the planes of Sacae. Lyn, AKA Lyndis, one of the three who make up the protagonist PowerTrio of ''Blazing Blade'', is in fact from Sacae, and is very proud of her ethnicity. In fact, the militaristic [[TheEmpire empire]] of Bern actually invades ''them'' in ''Binding Blade''.

* ''ChroniclesOfNarnia'': While actually geographically to the South Calormen is based on somewhat on this trope. But Lewis makes a concerted effort, especially in ''A Horse and His Boy'' to subvert it by showing that many individual Calormen are good people and will go to Aslan's Country. And even the very patriotic Narnian Bree can show an amount of respect and admiration for aspect of the Calromen culture, like their love of ArabianKnights style storytelling.
* ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': For the people of Westeros, the Dothraki serve this function. They're an equestrian culture in the east based loosely on the Mongols. While the Dothraki never travel across the ocean, there's a fear at one point that they might invade Westeros. Generally, Westeros is more concerned with the barbarian hordes from the [[GrimUpNorth grim north]] who more resemble classic western barbarians.
* ''{{Nightrunner}}'' series: the invading Plenimar... of course from the east.

* The [[HumansByAnyOtherName "Mabden" human barbarians]] in the ''{{Corum}}'' series are savage hordes from the East. The good, civilized Mabden live in a land that seems to have a closer resemblance to Europe, with lots of coastline, castles, and a cool-temperate climate. In the second trilogy, the hordes from the East are replaced by [[GrimUpNorth cold-dwelling]] {{Eldritch Abomination}}s.
