* ''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.

->'''Red Guardian''': General Aleksander Lukin, under the authority of [[UsefulNotes/BorisYeltsin President Yeltsin]], you are hereby under arrest [...] for crimes of treason against Mother Russia.

* 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.

** General Chang in ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies'' was to be conveniently delayed by traffic when Beijing was to be struck by a nuke previously stolen from a British warship, whereupon he would launch a coup and take command of the Chinese government.
*** In the novelization, the Chinese government sends their agent to find Chang, since he stole a high-tech radar system. He is later arrested for the theft and treason.

* In ''Film/WildWildWest'', Loveless seems to find quite a few influential British, French, and Mexican allies to go along with his plan of dividing the United States and granting its land to its previous owners.

* The second-latest addition to Russia's terror blacklist (February 2015) is a "People's militia named after Minin and Pozharskiy". Naming itself after the founders of an actual mass rebellion against foreign intervention in the early 1610s, it intended to combat the "Western invasion" and "corrupt and traitorous elites", including UsefulNotes/VladimirPutin himself, apparently. Based on the court charges filed against individual members in 2011-2012, a group spearheaded by GRU and paratroop veterans planned to stage an armed insurrection in Yekaterinburg and Kovrov, sabotaging most of the civic infrastructure with the small strike groups they'd formed, while also gunning down any rabbi they could get in range of.

* 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]]. ''Black Ops'' 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.

* Ramius and his officers in ''Film/TheHuntForRedOctober'' -- according to their government. Ramius planned to defect with his brand new hi-tech submarine, so the Soviet Ambassador fed the US government the RenegadeRussian line to get them to sink him.
