* 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.

** This is also the main source of conflict in "The Promise" comic book continuation. After the war ends, the Earth Kingdom forces all Fire Nation colonies out, only to discover that after generations of living there, people are less than willing to leave (especially the many mixed families). Eventually, [[spoiler: they make these areas new neutral zones, neither belong to Earth or Fire. The largest of these becomes [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra Republic City]].]]

** Occurs in the fifth set of comics ''[[ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderNorthAndSouth North and South]]'' when representatives of the Northern Water Tribe start modernizing the Southern Water Tribe in their own image ahead of [[spoiler: opening a refinery that will distribute the large oil deposit that was found under the South Pole that the Northerners think the Southerners are too primitive to handle]]. A group of traditionalists resent the Northerners for disparaging and erasing their traditions (plus the fact that they'll never be equal to the other empires no matter how hard they try) and form a terrorist cell. We know that [[spoiler: things will end peacefully since by ''Legend of Korra'' the Southerners are on equal footing with the rest of the empires and control their oil]].

* Kicking TheEmpire out of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' is part of Dagoth Ur's plan and he's been staging a series of assassinations to disrupt their activities since awakening.
** 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.]]

* Kicking TheEmpire out of ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** In
''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' Morrowind]]'', kicking the Empire out of Morrowind is an open part of [[BigBad Dagoth Ur's plan and he's been staging Ur's]] plan. This sentiment is actually shared by quite a series few other groups, ranging from the [[TheMafia ruthless gangster]] [[TheSyndicate Camonna Tong]] to even honorable groups like [[ProudWarriorRace House Redoran]]. It's just that those groups lack the resources to actually drive the Empire out, while [[PhysicalGod Dagoth Ur]] certainly would if he gets his hands on all of assassinations to disrupt their activities since awakening.the [[MacGuffin Tools of Kagrenac]].

* 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.

::It doesn't work out, of course. The British and French imperialists [[SarcasmMode shockingly]] renege on their promises to the Arabs and the Arabs themselves [[WeAREStrugglingTogether ultimately fail to overcome their tribal differences]]. By the end of the movie, [[FullCircleRevolution the Arabs have simply traded their old Turkish overlords for new British and French ones]].

* 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".
