* The White Lotus Sect mentioned above from ''Film/OnceUponATimeInChina2'' are singularly nasty KnightTemplar types who want all foreign influence, however beneficial, out of China. These guys are introduced by [[KickTheDog burning a dog because it was a foreign breed]], attack and burn down a foreign language school, forcing Wong to take the displaced students of the school to the British consulate, and at one point, they even ''burn a cross'' in front of the consulate in a scene that may remind American viewers of [[TheKlan another sect known for its bigotry and intolerance]] (though with far different goals than the White Lotus).

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/CrusaderKingsII'' has nationalist and religious revolts (the latter are not to be confused with heretic revolts), wherein peasant rebels led by a character of a province's local culture or religion rise up against a different culture/religion liege. Cultural and religious differences also makes AI vassal rulers more likely to join independence factions against their liege.

A rather peculiar case of this trope occurs with some {{Animal Wrongs Group}}s, who claim humans are occupying the Earth.

* Generally, any work which portrays UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar and especially the Reconstruction from the perspective of the South will ignore or sideline the issue of slavery and instead focus on this trope.
* Pretty much every movie about Joan of Arc will reduce the complicated medieval politics of UsefulNotes/TheHundredYearsWar to "the English are bad because they're occupying France".

* 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, and if you want to see just how nasty these guys can get, well, look no further than ''Film/OnceUponATimeInChina2'' which pits Wong Fei Hong played by Jet Li against the fanatical and Nazi-like White Lotus sect, and which shows us the other side of the coin by raising issue with rabid anti-western bigotry instead of foreign imperialism and greed with the first movie.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' provides numerous examples:
** The Kaleesh, General Grievous' people, joined the CIS largely because their own planet had been economically ruined by the Republic for retaliating (with massacres) against the rival Huks, who had invaded their planet and enslaved the Kaleesh.
** A series of insurgent operations on Manaan by the native Selkath managed to drive TheEmpire offworld (though, [[spoiler:much like the Rebel Alliance]], they received help from Darth Vader.)
*** The films themselves, too. The first one in particular has been viewed as an allegory for the UsefulNotes/VietnamWar, while Film/RevengeOfTheSith was seen as an IraqWar allegory. [[WordOfGod Lucas]] actually confirmed the Vietnam connections, but denied any intentional Iraq allegory (probably true since the films had been planned before it broke out).

* The ''Series/{{V 1983}}'' franchise (no, not [[ComicBook/VForVendetta that V]]). A human resistance group tries to expel the aliens who have taken control of Earth.

* ''ComicBook/Block109'': Part of TheReveal at the end of the album ''Operation Blazing Sun''. [[spoiler:The African colonial troops manipulated the SS forces throughout the story to make them think the French are still an active threat (in fact, they had already been killed by the natives) so they could lure the Germans into a trap and kick all the colonial powers out of their country.]]

* In the Literature/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineRelaunch, the True Way movement on Cardassia equates Federation and Bajoran aid movements with cultural imperialism, accusing them of attempting the final destruction of traditional Cardassian culture, and using terrorism to try forcing them offworld. Also, on Trill, unjoined political groups come to see the Trill symbionts as a manipulative race of overlords controlling Trill society; after all, the Joined hold all the positions of overt political authority, and as far as some unjoined are now concerned, the humanoid Joined are puppets of the symbionts.

** Lampshaded when a disfigured victim of one of Kira's bombs who has killed every member of her old resistance cell in revenge confronts her with the fact that he was just a civilian who did the laundry. Kira's reply is to simply point out that he was a civilian who did the laundry ''for an occupying military force that had enslaved her entire planet and species!''
