* One of the first of these works is Barrett Tillman's ''Literature/TheSixthBattle'' from 1992, where a military coup overthrows the nascent Russian democracy, gets most of the former republics back into what is re-branded the Union of Eurasian Republics and then gets its allies together to invade [[TheApartheidEra apartheid South Africa]].

* In ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty: VideoGame/ModernWarfare 2'', a FalseFlagOperation by an international terrorist prompts Russia (which has already been taken over by hardline Ultranationalists) to launch a retaliatory assault on the US.

* In The ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty: VideoGame/ModernWarfare 2'', VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' series mixes this with RenegadeRussian. During the events of ''Call of Duty 4'', a nuclear weapon was detonated in the middle of a Middle Eastern city at the command of a pair of Russian terrorists (Imran Zakhaev and his protege Vladimir Makarov). Zakhaev's death at the end of the game for the bombing has him dying as a martyr, allowing an Ultranationalist party to seize control of the Russian government in the intervening five years leading to ''Modern Warfare 2''. The bear gets angry again when a FalseFlagOperation conducted by Makarov (who himself was ''too'' radical for the incumbent Ultranationalist leadership, continuing the Renegade Russian theme) leaves Russia thinking an international American terrorist prompts Russia (which has already been taken over by hardline Ultranationalists) to launch a retaliatory assault perpetrated an attack on an airport, prompting an invasion and the US.start of WorldWarIII.

* ''WorldInConflict'' is set in an AlternateHistory, where USSR launches an attack on US and Western Europe in 1989 (in RealLife, the final, milder part of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar), with China later joining the party (no, not the Party)[[note]]An ''extreme'' stretch, given that Russia and China are not on friendly terms, and in fact tend to despise each other[[/note]]. It should be noted that since this ''is'' an AlternateHistory where the Soviet Union has not yet collapsed, it can probably be said that the Bear of this universe never ''stopped'' being angry in the first place.

* In ''[[{{Earth 2150}} Earth 2140]]'' and its sequels, the [[TheEmpire Eurasian Dynasty]] was formed after WorldWarThree has destroyed all the old nation-states in the mid-21st century. A Russian Army colonel leads his remaining men from their bunker East into what used to be Mongolia, where they encounter the Khans, a nomadic tribe. Joining with them, the colonel proceeds to start conquering what's left of civilization in Europe and Asia. He also marries into the tribe, changes his name, and forms his own dynasty, which persists for another century. By the time of the ill-fated Dynasty's war with the [[EagleLand United Civilized States]], ED now controls all of Europe, Asia, and Africa using cyborg armies and military equipment that has not changed since the last war (and if that means going up against HumongousMecha with old-fashioned tanks, so be it). They are the least technological faction in the games, but can easily out-produce the others, preferring the WeHaveReserves approach.

* In ''EndersGame'', Russia is mentioned frequently as being a threat, and at the end of the book they even launch a brief civil war within the IF. In later books they continue to make trouble. Although the original was written before the collapse of the Soviet Union, communism and the USSR are never mentioned, and the government is kept very vague.
** Its referred to as The Second Warsaw Pact composed of every state that was in the Soviet Union and the previous Warsaw Pact plus a couple more states (implied that it has some influence all the way up to the Netherlands).

* ''Literature/WorldWarZ's'' Holy Russian Empire. There were some ''damned'' smart and ''damned'' ruthless people in Russia during the Great Panic. When soldiers sent to eliminate zombies got cold feet and rebelled, their commanders decimated them - forced every ten rebels to kill one of their number or be executed. The sheer horror of that choice made every single survivor so dedicated to JustFollowingOrders that they pretty much took a vow to [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill never make a choice again]]. The only thing they wouldn't do was kill a fellow soldier - even {{Zombie Infectee}}s. Instead, they would commit ''group suicide'' - uninfected right alongside infected. That is, until a shell-shocked priest present at one killed the infectee himself, proclaiming that as a man of God, he would take the sin upon himself so the soldier could die cleanly. Cue priests being given carte blanche to eliminate infectees... Or anyone deemed "infectees"... such as [[CorruptChurch political dissidents]]...

* ''Literature/TheTimeTraders'' by AndreNorton, first published 1958, features a conflict between the USA and the Russians over TimeTravel technology. When it was re-released after the end of the Cold War, it included a new paragraph describing the emergence of a belligerent "Greater Russia" from the ruins of the old Soviet Union.

* The ''WebOriginal/ZhirinovskysRussianEmpire'' timeline in AlternateHistoryDotCom has the titular RealLife excentric, nationalist politician become President of Russia and later the whole post-Soviet Union after a cascade of events including Yeltsin's assassination during the 1991 coup attempt, and remain in power until he is overthrown by a popular revolution in 2003. The Soviet Union (minus the Baltic republics) is not dissolved but turned into a [[ANaziByAnyOtherName fascist-esque]] federation known as the Union of Independent States, that launches or gets involved in wars in the dissolving Yugoslavia, Romania, Estonia, Afghanistan and Pakistan besides doing its best to discourage its member republics from breaking away.
