** ''Videogame/Destiny2'' shows more about their nature, revealing they are very much Space Romans, with a hedonistic Emperor who was [[BodyguardBetrayal betrayed by his own]] PraetorianGuard, now ruled by a military tribunal akin to the Legates, with imperial dominion over several other species, and now have Latin-sounding names to many of their ranks and titles, as well as warriors named Gladiators and even gladiator fighting arenas and BreadAndCircuses style entertainments to keep the masses content and happy.

One of their Emperors, Cartagia, is a mad man expy of [[TheCaligula Caligula]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Planetside}}'': The New Conglomerate is very American, the Terran Republic is similar to the Soviet Union (the first game mixed this with PuttingOnTheReich, the second dropped this) and the Vanu Sovereignty has developed a futuristic feudal Japan flavour.

* For some reason, the Terrans in ''Franchise/StarCraft'' are dead ringers for the [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar Confederate States of America]]; Southern accents, Black laborers, powerful "Old Families," a strange mix of redneck and gentlemenly mannerisms, and even the title of "Confederacy." Oh, and they have the same flag. According to the [[AllThereInTheManual manual]], they are the descendants of humans exiled from Earth because they had the potential to develop psychic powers, which were the political scapegoat of choice at the time; and they apparently developed a bad case of FutureImperfect.

** The Shi'ar empire of X-Men fame have more similarities to the romans, with the leader of the Imperial Guard being called Praetor, latin-like words like Majestor/Majestrix and the tendency of having [[TheCaligula extravagant, bloodthirsty rulers]] like D'Ken and Vulcan.
