* In ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest'', the main opposition to the Arthro Taskforce, the terrorist organisation behind the games, comes from STAR, a militia primarily composed of past SOTF escapees and defected terrorists, who seek to destroy the AT and put an end to SOTF. Although they haven't managed a complete victory yet, in Version Four they [[spoiler:[[StormingTheCastle launched a direct assault on the terrorist headquarters]], killed [[BigBad Danya]] and rescued almost thirty of the abducted students]]. They didn't do anything in Version Five, but as of the prologue to Version Six, they seem to know about the latest abductions and to be planning some kind of intervention.

* In ''DecadesOfDarkness'', there are several ones fighting the expansionist, slaveholding *USA, like the Velvet Underground in Pennsylvania, Mexican generals like Juarez, and Eunuco Mitchell (it's a pseudonym). Unfortunately, none have prevailed.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' is a prime time example of the useless-and-only-an-annoyance-kind of La Resistance until [[MagnificentBastard Lelouch]] turns them from a bunch of butthurt kids playing guerilla against the [[TheEmpire Britannian Empire]] to a fully organized and highly deadly army with victory after victory as its signature (that doesn't mean they're error-free, as we painfully find out in [[spoiler:the Euphemia Massacre Incident and the following Black Rebellion]]).

* The Dorssian Royalists in ''Anime/ValvraveTheLiberator''. There was a coup ten years prior in which a military dictatorship imprisoned - but didn't kill - most of the centuries-old royal dynasty, who were beloved by the people. L-elf and A-drei, a former prince, are planning their own revolution to restore the royal family. Later, it's revealed that [[spoiler: Kriemhild]] is also working with a Royalist faction. It's notable that the Chancellor of the military federation wears the crown and facial markings of the royalty - possibly indicating that those symbols are really still that powerful even after the coup.

* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', the Ignauts form as a revolutionary army seeking an ideally non-violent overthrow of the kingship, in hopes of more equality and supported for the disadvantaged. When King Delzaine is suddenly killed by a third party, a major wrench is thrown in their plans and they end up becoming something of a temporary peacekeeping militia instead as the country falls apart.

[[HollywoodHistory Hollywood usually]] romanticizes resistance fighters. There are two reasons. The first is rooted in America's origins as rebels fighting the English during UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution. The second is likewise UsefulNotes/WorldWarII where the conflict between the Resistance and UsefulNotes/NaziGermany fell, as close as it ever has, to clear divsions between right and wrong. In most cases in history and in real-life, resistance movements are complex and confusing events. A common mistake is to confuse resistance movements with revolutionary movements, when this is not always the case. Some resistance movements ''are'' revolutionary, seeking to install a new regime to displace the old. Revolutions needless to say [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized are complex, murky and at times brutal]] affairs. It has led in the past to the new regime forming [[MeetTheNewBoss the new government]] which [[FullCircleRevolution can be as bad or worse than the old.]] Alternatively, La Resistance may represent the last remnants of the reactionary or counter-revolutionary cronies of the old regime fighting against the Revolutionary Progressive Forces. Once re-installed, the Resistance "heroes" decide to {{Retcon}} the revolution and institute purges for the cause of revenge, and remind people why exactly they were toppled in the first place. In some cases, as it happened in some parts of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, the Resistance contains factions who want to restore the old regime and factions which want to bring a new regime, and these two factions [[WeAreStrugglingTogether might struggle during and after the war]].

* ''Anime/RomeoXJuliet'' has the followers of the Capulet family, overthrown regime of the Capulets, fighting against the usurper Lord Montague.Montague. Not quite as Shakespeare wrote it, but it's more of an homage to Shakespeare's favorite tropes in general than an adaptation - Juliet is a SweetPollyOliver vigilante, for one.
