TruthInTelevision; historically, this was known as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevauchée "chevauchée"]]. This is generally a problem in areas without a strong government to keep order, even today. In many civilizations, it was not resolved until power, money, and land were consolidated under [[BlueBlood noblemen]] and [[RoyalBlood kings]] rich enough to afford standing armies. It is also one reason why peasants in older times tolerated kings and nobles who were quite nasty, as the alternative was almost always constant chaos caused by dozens and dozens of rival warlords. These days, this trope is considered a [[TheLawsandCustomsofWar Crime Against Humanity]].

* Since//Videogame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'' is taking place during a war between the Northern Kingdoms and Nilfgaard,, you can come across frequent examples of this, both in progress and already having happened. Geralt has the choice between ignoring it or intervening in it.

*** The [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Greenskins]] are a race of {{Blood Knight}}s that live to fight, and if they donít get enough battles to satisfy them, they will turn on each other in frustration and take attrition damage. This is alleviated by setting up raiding camps, which allows the troops to reave and pillage the countryside, simultaneously increasing your income and damaging the local enemyís morale.
*** The [[HornyVikings Warriors of Chaos]] have no settlements, carrying their minimal infrastructure with their armies, and as such have no way of maintaining internal income. As a result, they need to constantly defeat other armies and sack and plunder civilized settlements, in order to make money and maintain their dark godsí favor.

* In ''Roleplay/ThereIsNoGATEWeDidNotFightThere'', Kell Rhavenfell's default tactics when dealing with the Rabbit tribes is to raid their villages for slaves while murdering all those who resist before eventually putting them to the torch, as seen in the interlude *The March of the Burning Sky*.
** Kell even "makes an example" out of the surviving warriors by ''[[CruelAndUnusualDeath crucifying]]'' them in the remains of their homes. ''Yikes...''

* Comedian/Impressionist Rich Little once impersonated John Wayne as Ghenghis Khan: "We're gonna go in and we're gonna rape the women and steal the sheep. And for God's sake, get it right this time!"

** This is the specialty of the people from the Iron Islands, the ironborn. They have a unique culture centered on maritime raiding and pillaging other peoples.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' shows the Dothraki indulging in this at one point [[spoiler: which comes back to bite Khal Drogo when he needs some medical attention]]. Also mentioned as happening offscreen.

** Lannister forces RapePillageAndBurn the Riverlands in retaliation for their rebellion against King Joffrey (or their lords rebelling; the peasants never had any say in the matter). We get a close look at what's left afterward in Season 4 when [[BadassAndChildDuo Sandor Clegane and Arya Stark]] trek through it on their way to the Vale.

Ser Gregor is Lord Tywin's go-to-guy for this. Ned is so appalled that he attaints him and sentences him to death. After the attempt to stop him fails, Gregor continues this throughout the war.

* Many ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' maps include villages, which are often set upon by bandits. If they get there before any of your units can, the village will be destroyed and whatever item or character you would've received is {{lost forever}}. On the other hand, if you get there first, the village subsequently locks its gates, preventing this from happening.
