* ''Series/TheNewAvengers'': In the "K is for Kill" two-parter, Colonel Stanislav is a hardliner who is not happy with the thawing Cold War, and puts in a motion a scheme set up after WorldWarII in an attempt to trigger World War III.

to:

* A Chinese variant in ComicBook/IronMan villain the Mandarin, at least in his earliest appearances. While he lived in and occasionally helped Red China, it was made clear from his debut that he thinks himself above both Beijing ''and'' Washington, and he routinely humiliates the PLA officials sent to negotiate with him.

Added DiffLines:

* General Nikolai Alexandrovich Zakharov from ComicBook/ThePunisherMAX, is a low-key example. Its unlikely he'd ever openly move against the Russian government, but he despises The New Russia and its government, considering them traitors who threw away the sacrifices made for the Soviet Union and whored out the country for profit.

* The similarly-named Zakhaev in ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare''. Inverted in ''Modern Warfare 2'' when we learn that Zakhaev's movement actually does take control of the Kremlin not so long after [[spoiler:his death]], and the second game instead [[MakeTheBearAngryAgain makes the Bear angry again]].

** In the second and third games, we have Vladimir Makarov, one of Zakhaev's proteges.

** In the second and third games, we have Vladimir Makarov, one of Zakhaev's proteges. Interestingly, he is a renegade to the very government that Zakhaev fought to instate because they couldn't handle his radical ideals (which, ironically, is what their martyr fought for).

* ''VideoGame/CallofDutyBlackOps'' has Nikita Dragovich planning to disperse lethal biological agents in major U.S. cities in a plot that is hinted to be running without anyone in the Kremlin either approving or knowing the full details.

* ''VideoGame/CallofDutyBlackOps'' has Nikita Dragovich planning to disperse lethal biological agents in major U.S. cities in a plot that is hinted to be running without anyone in the Kremlin either approving or knowing the full details. Much like Volgin's case below, this is an example that takes place when the Soviet Union is still around.

* Terrorists led by Ivan Korshunov in ''UsefulNotes/AirForceOne''.
* Given that the Klingons are Cold War analogs, the renegade Klingon commander on ''Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier'' counts as a sci-fi version of this trope.
** Also Commander Kruge from ''Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock,'' who unilaterally decides to take his ship to the Genesis planet, attack Federation starships and murder Federation scientists in an attempt to learn its secrets. And General Chang from ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'' who is [[spoiler:plotting with other renegades from the Federation to prevent peace between the two powers]]. And the entire House of Duras in StarTrekTheNextGeneration, whose non-stop scheming eventually escalates into a full blown civil war where they try to take over the Empire. Obedience to the ruling authority doesn't seem to be the Klingons' strong suit.
