* ''TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' is centered around two of these, and which one is good and which one is bad depends on how you look at it. The most obvious one is the Stormcloak rebellion with the battle cry "Skyrim belongs to the Nords". It's good if you believe that the Third Empire they're a part of has let them down and they're just standing up for themselves, or bad if they're whining about nothing and being more than a little racist to match the pigheadedness. The Imperial Legion and their allies in Skyrim are less overt, but they're still on the side of the Third Empire. Either they're trying to look out for the best interests of every part of the Empire as best they can or they're pushovers forcing their ideas onto an unwilling part of the nation. Rugged patriots vs imperialist wimps or whiny racists vs practical diplomats? [[AtopTheFourthWall YOU MAKE THE CALL!]]

* ''Film/{{Army}}'' is a very subtle example. It was commissioned in 1944 by the Imperial Japanese Army as a pro-army, Patriotism Is Good film. But director Keisuke Kinoshita was an anti-war liberal, so he snuck in a subtle Patriotism Is Bad message. Sometimes, it's subtle, like when two ArmchairMilitary idiots have a ridiculous argument over whether the Mongols could have conquered Japan 650 years earlier--one gets very angry when the other suggests that, well, they could have. At other times the Patriotism Is Bad message is more overt and dramatic, like when a panicking, sobbing mother tries to fight her way through a cheering crowd to get one last look at her marching son before he goes off to war.

* Being about the Revolutionary War, nearly every character in the musical ''1776 '' is an ardent patriot. An honorable mention, however, goes to Caeser Rodman, who came back to Philadelphia to vote while dying of cancer and shouted down everyone who disagreed with the war.

When done right, it can be respectful of other patriotisms and nationalism while providing a more nuanced take of the concept. Done poorly however, this can also be a source of MisplacedNationalism and FlameBait.

See MisplacedNationalism for the internet equivalent. See MyCountryRightOrWrong for when someone allows Patriotic Fervor to convince themselves that aiding an evil leader is their "duty". See MyCountryTisOfTheeThatISting for artists who criticize their own country. See also PropagandaPiece.

* Masakado for ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei''. He once was a samurai warlord who tried to overthrow the Emperor, and after his death, his spirit and devotion to the people proved so strong, he became a benevolent protector deity for the Tokyo area. The National Defense Divinities, a handful of Shinto gods, were likewise devoted enough to volunteer themselves into the local KaijuDefenseForce against invading demons.

* Togo from ''Anime/YukiYunaIsAHero'' is very patriotic about Japan, to the point where she carries a small flag around according to the visual novel. It's portrayed as an admirable, cute trait of hers.

* PlayedForLaughs with Robin on multiple occasions in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo''. In one episode, Robin bans tea from the tower by citing an obviously incorrect story about how American's independence was related to tea. Robin thinks that tea is Britain's attempt at trying to regain control of America. As it turns out, tea makes the Titans into anglophiles and they start acting British. Robin tries to make them remember they're Americans by singing about how America is awesome. As it turns out, the Queen of England is really trying to turn Americans English by using tea. ''Go'' also had a similar episode about [[SoccerHatingAmericans American's hating soccer]].
