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]].

* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', it's the standard practice for many lords, especially more conservatve ones, to let their soldier rape, pillage and burn anything they wish to on their way to war, bringing many headaches to their appointed leader, progressive count Jaume, who has to resort to hanging rapists least the army be at war with its own nation before they even reach the battlefield.

* Somewhat surprisingly, this comes up in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' of all places (minus the rape part, obviously). In the episode "Gauntlet of Fire", Garble nearly name-drops the last two-thirds of this trope as his plan for Equestria should he become Dragon Lord.
-->We'll take whatever we want from Equestria and burn the rest!

* ''Literature/JohnCarterOfMars'' had the [[SkyPirates First-Born pirates]] attacking the [[ReligionOfEvil Holy Therns]]'s domains for ages, to regularly kidnap their females to what is generally believed to be AFateWorseThanDeath:
-->''They were popularly supposed to inhabit the lesser moon, from which they descended upon Barsoom at long intervals. Where they visited they wrought the most horrible atrocities, and when they left carried away with them firearms and ammunition, and young girls as prisoners. These latter, the rumour had it, they sacrificed to some terrible god in an orgy which ended in the eating of their victims.''
