* ''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 expect the raping part, going as far as to hide the women away from the village.

* ''The Sack of Rome'', a 1992 Italian/Russian movie starring Franco Nero, as you can imagine from the title. When the German mercenaries enter Rome they engage in [[ForTheEvulz entirely gratuitous]] rape, slaughter and destruction.

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 [[BetterTheDevilYouKnow 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 [[UsefulNotes/TheLawsandCustomsofWar Crime Against Humanity]].

* ''Creator/DaveAllen At Large'' was a bit ''too'' fond of the trope:
-->'''Viking:''' Rape and pillage! Rape and pillage!\\
'''Village Crone:''' Oh yes! Rape and pillage!\\

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, Molag Bal, [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[TheCorrupter Domination and Corruption]], is practically the patron deity of the trope. While he enjoys committing these acts himself, he ''especially'' enjoys it when he can [[ManipulativeBastard manipulate]] mortals into do this to ''each other''.
** Pillaging and slaughter were fairly common acts in the wars throughout Tamrielic history, especially in the Mythic and Merethic Eras. Most notable was the genocide of the Falmer (Snow Elves) by Ysgramor and his Five Hundred Companions when he invaded Skyrim. In later eras it became much less common, as armies invaded and only occupied lands, but the Orc kingdom of Orsinium suffered this fate pretty regularly by its High Rock and Hammerfell neighbors, and during the great War in the Fourth Era the region of Cyrodiil and particularly the Imperial City were subjected to this by the invading Aldmeri Dominion armies and their [[FantasticRacism fanatically racist Thalmor leaders.]]

** 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). 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. 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.
