* In the book ''Literature/ThePaintedBird'', this happens to several Polish peasant villages during WorldWarII. These villages have been neglected for centuries, lack electricity, and lie in a war-torn country. Towards the end of the book, the protagonist Jewish boy comes to a village that is attacked by a band of deserters from the Red Army. They go on an orgy of gang-raping and slaughter, and it's a real TearJerker scene.

* ''Film/SevenSamurai'': The titular seven are hired to defend a village of Japanese farmers from bandits. ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'' is actually a remake of ''Seven Samurai'' as a {{Western}}. The villagers in both films are GenreSavvy enough to expect the raping part, going as far as to hide the women away from the village.

* ''Fanfic/TheLifeAndTimesOfAWinningPony'': The Avatar of Nightmare Moon uses the possibility of this as a threat to try to force Shadow to convince Celestia to surrender Canterlot, claiming that she'd take the city anyway and it’d be impossible to control victory-drunk soldiers seeking retribution for a long, hard siege and the deaths of close companions.

* ''Fanfic/TheLifeAndTimesOfAWinningPony'': A couple of examples show up in ''The Lunar Rebellion'':
** Griffon reivers menace Equestria’s shores early in the story, attacking coastal settlements, sacking them and kidnapping their inhabitants, whom they either enslave or [[IAmAHumanitarian eat]].

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 don’t 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 enemy’s 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 gods’ 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!"
