It should be noted that the name "space marine" is actually a misnomer -- there's no water in deep space. Works aiming for more realism or a more RayGunGothic feel may prefer to call them "espatiers." But for those wanting more to invoke the Romantic SpaceIsAnOcean trope the name space marine works just fine. Sometimes, "space marine" [[CulturalTranslation is culturally translated]] into "space [insert badass military unit here]" - for instance in Russia space marines are often called "space landing forces" (''kosmodesantniki'') after the VDV[[note]]Vozdushno-desantnye voyska, "air-landing forces", often called just "desantniki" (rougly "landers").[[/note]] an airborne unit of the Russian military that has roughly the same reputation as the [[SemperFi USMC]] and [[UsefulNotes/BritsWithBattleships Royal Marines]] in American and British cultures.

* ''Series/TheExpanse'': Both the Earth-based UNMC and the Mars-based MMC are straight-up examples, complete with [[PowerArmor power armor]] that turns a single recon Marine into an formidably lethal walking tank. While there's no love lost between the two factions, the MMC reminds their troops that "the second most dangerous thing in the solar system next to a Martian Marine, is a UN Marine".

Their design in ''[[RedFaction Red Faction: Guerrilla]]'' bears similarities to ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. They are unusual in being bad-guy Space Marines in a video game.
