* The RealLife regime change the USA has done in Central America was parodied in Creator/WoodyAllen's ''Bananas'', when the CIA soldiers already on their way in the airplane had to ask if they were being sent in for or against the current government.

* In Season 2 of ''Series/{{The 100}}'', Abby is Camp Jaha's Chancellor. However, the Grounders only have respect for Clarke and treat her as the Camp's leader, and since they've got their giant army parked right outside, people inside the Camp begin deferring to her leadership instead of Abby's.

* One ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' storyline, titled ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Regime Change]]'', had Dredd lead a multinational "peacekeeping" task force into Ciudad Barranquilla to depose the ruling Judge Supremo under the pretence of searching for missing Mega City One citizens, the bodies of which are found in a mass burial pit along with all the other dissenters. Dredd executes the Supremo and puts a puppet dictator in his place.

Enter RegimeChange. Popularized during the run-up to the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, this term can be applied to any number of forms: Invasions, coups, assassinations, fixing elections...you name it, it's probably happened.

happened.

Differs from TheCoup chiefly by origin despite being one of the ways Regime Change can occur - coups begin from within the current governing system ([[MilitaryCoup often a country's own military]], whereas Regime Change generally comes from outside it (propaganda and other PR, of course, will paint the picture as it suits whatever side is telling the story). The two are not mutually exclusive (for example, a general could launch a coup with help from a foreign power), but which one is predominantly portrayed can effect different reactions in the story. Both, however, are different from more drawn-out conflicts like general war in that changes are usually confined to the top levels of government and the policies it implements - wholesale annexation of land or massive, long-lasting social upheaval are usually not part of the picture.

* Look at the history of Latin America, and see which change of government ''doesn't'' have CIA involvement behind it. You will be hard-pressed to make it a long list.
* The British didn't like it that the Iranian prime minister Mossadeq nationalized their big oil, so they toppled the democratically elected government and installed the Shah. Ayatollah Khomeini didn't like it that foreign infidels are dictating the country, so he toppled the British-backed government and installed the Islamist revolutionaries. [[HereWeGoAgain America didn't like the Islamist government, so... eh, nevermind.]]
