* This is the premise of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'', where the ''Ghost'' crew steal supplies from the Galactic Empire, sabotage their operations, and convince citizens to unite against the Empire so that they can be strong enough to expel them from Lothal. However, that gets screwed over when Darth Vader and Thrawn arrive.

Added DiffLines:

* In the near-future thriller ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', many in the incipient Northern Confederation (and the New Confederacy) feel this way about the federal agents and government troops trying to maintain Washington's rule in these areas, even before they formally declare their independence. An even straighter example is the reaction to the UN-backed invasion that follows the downfall of the old regime.

A rather peculiar case of this trope occurs with some {{Animal Wrongs Group}}s, who claim humans are occupying the Earth [[FridgeLogic despite the fact that Homo Sapiens also originate on Earth]].

* The Guiding Hand in ''TabletopGame/FengShui'' is based upon the kind of {{Well Intentioned Extremist}}s and out-and-out KnightTemplar-ish people that made up the Boxers at the turn of the century.

** Likewise, the Stormcloaks in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' want TheEmpire out of Skyrim, although their plans aren't evil like those of Dagoth Ur. In some respects, it's taken even another level deeper by TheEmpire ''itself'', as, in the aftermath of a ForeverWar, a humiliating peace treaty once arm-wrestled them into making large concessions to the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Fascist]] [[BiggerBad Aldmeri Dominion]], including allowing them to police the Imperial countryside and persecute Imperial citizens for worshipping Talos, the one Divine whose divinity many elves refuse to acknowledge and who the Thalmor that lead the Dominion absolutely hate. Appropriately, TheEmpire treats the Stormcloak Rebellion as [[NiceJobBreakingItHero an attempt to undermine their efforts to stand up to the Thalmor]]. [[spoiler:The Dominion is secretly encouraging both sides to fight and maintain a stalemate specifically to keep the Empire too weak to stand up to them.]]

*** The Reachmen, [[BarbarianTribe the tribal]] inhabitants of the Reach in western Skyrim, have been resisting any and all groups who attempt to claim the Reach dating all the way back to the ''First'' Tamriellic Empire. While their successes have waxed and waned over that time, they experienced a resurgence during the Great War, successfully capturing the Nord city of Markarth and holding it for two years while the Empire was preoccupied. Though a Nord militia would eventually drive them out, they hold strong in the countryside of the Reach as the "[[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters Forsworn]]", led by [[RebelLeader Madanach]], with their numbers swelling.

* The ''Literature/{{Animorphs}} series takes this a step further. Not only are the Yeerks attempting to occupy Earth, but the very bodies and minds of humanity, including the brother of one member and the mother of another.

* In the ''EuropaUniversalis'' expansion ''[=InNomine=]'' you'll get two kinds of these types of rebels: "Patriots" seek to have areas of a certain culture defect to another state with that culture. (eg. french patriots in provinces owned by the Netherlands will try to defect to France) Nationalists support a particular nation-state, and either want to defect to that state if it exists, or [[OrderReborn recreate it]] if it doesn't.
