* In ''VideoGame/SurvivingMars'', the entire point of the game is to create colonies on Mars and try to make them self-sufficient as possible.

* The Spacenoids in the Universal Century ''{{Franchise/Gundam}}'' works started out as this, whether as willing pioneers seeking a new life or forced off-world by TheFederation. The simmering tensions and divides that emerge between them and "Earthnoids" eventually culminates in the One Year War and subsequent conflicts. By the time the events of ''F91'' and ''Victory'' take place, the Side colonies have all but usurped the Earth Federation as the dominant force in the Earth Sphere. [[spoiler:And by ''ReconguistaInG'', are for all intents and purposes the ones calling the shots.]]

* Creator/AAPessimal's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12321109/31/Gap-Year-Adventures Gap Year Adventures]]'' is a tale of two adventurers crossing Howondaland, the Discworld's Africa. They arrive in the white colony of, err, ''[[Usefulnotes/{{Zimbabwe}} Smith-Rhodesia]]'' and note that the settlers, descendants of white Central Continnent emigrants from Ankh-Morpork and [[UsefulNotes/TheNetherlands Sto Kerrig]], are greatly proud of the land they wrested from the natives and settled. A [[UsefulNotes/{{Israel}} Cenotian]] visitor notes:
--> One thing we see a lot on posters and even carved into the facades of buildings is
-->"The mantle of the Pioneers has fallen on our shoulders to sustain civilisation in a primitive country."
-->This quote is attributed to your ancestor Sir Cecil Smith-Rhodes. People believe it and quote it as if it were holy religious writ. As I understand it, the original pioneers were the Boortrekkers of several centuries ago: several hundred years later, Sir Cecil successfully revived the Boortrekkie spirit and led a new trek out of the Transvaal into a new country. And Smith-Rhodesia is all around us as we travel. Mariella is seeking to leave S-R behind us and cross the state line into the Transvaal. Where of course your family home is. This land is merely named after your family. [[note]]The quote in RealLife is from Ian Smith, the last white ruler of Rhodesia before it became UsefulNotes/{{Zimbabwe}}; he was seeking to evoke the spirit of national founder, Victorian imperial adventurer Sir Cecil Rhodes. A very marginal canonical character in the Discworld is called Smith-Rhodes; Pessimal's take on things gives her and her family a backstory in "Africa"[[/note]]

** ''VideoGame/CivilizationBeyondEarth'', the SpiritualSuccessor to ''VideoGame/SidMeiersAlphaCentauri'', is where you also colonize a new planet with the added bonus that you are the first faction to arrive on the planet and it's just you versus the environment for a while. Eventually, though, the other colony expeditions from Earth will land and it becomes more of a traditional ''Civ'' land grab fest. Additionally, it's heavily implied that expeditions are also sent to other habitable worlds. This is confirmed in ''VideoGames/SidMeiersStarships'' (which is not an example of the trope, as the game doesn't involve settling anything), which states in the intro that multiple worlds had been settled by humans thousands of years ago.

** Creator/ParadoxInteractive games tend to feature this, most prominently in ''VideoGame/EuropaUniversalis'' and ''VideoGame/VictoriaAnEmpireUnderTheSun'', which take place from 1400-1920, when most of the world's colonial empires were formed in RealLife; ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' adds [[TropesInSpace SPACE]] colonization.

* ''Film/TheBigTrail'' is about a group of pioneers headed across the Oregon Trail to settle the territory. They have to brave the usual hazards, like InjunCountry, the ThirstyDesert, and the snowy Sierra Mountains.

* ''Videogame/{{Destiny}}'' invokes this with suggestions that the people of the Last City will one day spread out and retake the ruined remains of their homeworld, though it isn't followed up on because [[DeathWorld the entire system outside of the Last City is incredibly hostile to human life]]. In ''Videogame/Destiny2'', after much of humanity was forced out of the City by the Red Legion invasion, the leaders of humanity have started pushing for more expansion, after both realizing that by concentrating in the City they were leaving humanity vulnerable to another attack, and because the Guardians have realized that just because ordinary humans don't have the [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Traveler's blessings]], [[BadassNormal they can still fight and hold their own against the monsters beyond the walls.]]
