* Inverted and played with in in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind''. The Thieves' Guild is significantly ''less'' brutal than their native counterpart in the Camonna Tong. The Dark Brotherhood/Morag Tong is... muddled. The Dark Brotherhood is more foreign-ish, and more ruthless, but the foreignness has more to do with the Morag Tong being official than the Dark Brotherhood actually being new to the area and foreign.

* The plot of the JohnWoo game ''{{Stranglehold}}'' initially sets things up like this, with the Golden Kane allying with a ruthless Russian syndicate against the Dragon Claw syndicate headed by Mr. James Wong. But in a subversion of this trope, as Tequila and the audience find out, Wong is ''not'' a [[NeighbourhoodFriendlyGangsters Neighborhood Friendly Gangster]], and is even worse than the other bosses put together, particularly when he crosses the MoralEventHorizon and [[spoiler:has his own daughter murdered by Tequila's partner]].

* Inverted in ''FinalFantasyTacticsA2'': Although Duelhorn, the invading gang, still forces local clans to work for them and can be rather violent, three of their four leaders are {{Anti Villain}}s and treat their members nicely. Khamja, the local gang, is far more secretive, dishonest, and ruthless even to their own members.
