* A FantasyCounterpartCulture example in ''Videogame/AceCombat5TheUnsungWar''. After a period of peace efforts kickstarted by the end of a world war 15 years before where they fought on the same side, Yuktobania suddenly declares war on Osea (thinly veiled expies of the Soviet Union and the US, respectively). [[spoiler:Later revealed to be an InvokedTrope, since the war was orchestrated by [[TheRemnant remnants]] of resident [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Nazi Germany expy]] Belka, the country that caused and lost the previous war, using puppet governments on both sides to cause an war that would weaken both nations in revenge.]]

* In ''VideoGame/ShatteredUnion'', Russia invades Alaska after Washington, D.C., is destroyed by WesternTerrorists and the rest of the country splits into six factions, all vying for control. The hard-line Russian President Vladekov claims that Alaska should always have been a part of Russia and, since it's separate from the rest of the US, it has no business being a part of that country. Later on, it is revealed that [[spoiler:the Russian president masterminded the D.C. attack]]. It is also revealed that the Russian people are against the invasion and the military build-up and will rise up if Vladekov is sufficiently weakened by the re-unified US.

The latter is where Russia stays in its authoritarian military democracy, or ditches that silly "democracy" bit altogether, and grows increasingly aggressive, possibly reabsorbing the post-Soviet states as some sort of a Rebuilt Soviet Union, Eurasian Empire, or something equally scary sounding. This allows Russia to start attacking places again and being generally assertive. Probably will not involve actual bears, [[BearsAreBadNews unless Russia decides to get serious this time]].

* ''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.

It should be noted however that it is hyped up in the media a lot more than it is in real life Russia. In fact, within Russia, people are generally {{Genre Savvy}} and any big power up or political move is faced with a "But we're not going to go all out Soviet Union Bear Angry, right?" in the masses. And there's a constant "We're not going to turn into USA and be a {{Team America World Police}} and bomb everywhere" being expressed by the government as to not lose public support. So the trope is in use a lot more, but is still a trope rather than an actuality

* Film/RedDawn2012 features NorthKoreansWithNodongs as the main enemy, but several Russian advisors are seen from the Airborne Troops and Spetznaz. It's also implied that the Russians have attacked the entire Eastern Seaboard and that the North Korean invasion is actually a very small sideshow.
