* 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.

* Literal Space Romans: the Empirians in ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack'' are an exact cultural copy of the Romans including the gladiator matches. The similarity with Romans is never explained even when the planet is said to be located in another galaxy. Another case are the Hyperians who are Space Egyptians although much more brutal and animalistic.

*** They are shown to be quite emotional, although not to the extent that Vulcans really are on the inside. Basically, they found the middle ground between total logic and raw emotion (like any sane person).

** As far as player-based alliances go, the Red Alliance are literal Space Russians, formed by Russian-speaking players to have an alliance they could call their own. They even had their own Great Patriotic War when they got pushed back to their last star system in what's been [[http://eve-history.net/wiki/index.php/Red_Alliance explicitly compared]] to the Siege of Leningrad, only to fight back and triumph.

** The Thukkers are Space {{Romani}}. They are a Minmatar tribe that, unlike the others, remained nomadic rather than settling down on planets, and they refusal to integrate and abandon their way of life has led to discrimination against them from the other tribes. Those Thukkers who settle on planets often experience an identity crisis, feeling alienated from both their fellow planetside Minmatar and from the "Great Caravans" who they feel no longer represent their interests.
