* The ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' episode "Rickmancing the Stone" takes place in this kind of setting, serving as an homage to Mad Max.

''Franchise/MadMax'' is the TropeCodifier so expect a lot of works that employ the use of this trope to give it a shoutout.

* ''Film/MadMax2TheRoadWarrior'', ''Film/MadMaxBeyondThunderdome'', and ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' all feature examples of post-Apunkalyptic tribes of ne'er-do-wells wearing scavenged PostApunkalypticArmor and clothing encountered in the wastelands of the apocalyptic world they inhabit. The films are pretty much the {{Trope Codifier}}s for the look and setting. [[Film/MadMax The first film]], despite common misconceptions, takes place JustBeforeTheEnd, with civilization just barely still existing and the villains simply being an outlaw biker gang.
* ''Film/ThingsToCome'' -- Where ''Film/MadMax'' codified the trope, the film adaptation of H. G. Wells' 1933 novel ''Literature/TheShapeOfThingsToCome'' could be the UrExample in film. A world war breaks out in 1940 and lasts for decades, [[ForeverWar until the humans left alive have long since forgotten why it started, or what peace looks like.]] Most relevant for Wells' depiction of a desolate 1970, with horse-drawn cars and neo-feudal warlords bedecked with animal skins.

* [[RedOctober Russian Civil War]]. It went both ways: the collapse of the society was caused by a rise in crime, riots and general lawlessness after the February Revolution, and during the war itself, if you were not a soldier, odds are you were some kind of moonshine-addled bandit looking like a RummageSaleReject (remember, this was way before the punk subculture formed). And the border between "soldier" and "moonshine-addled RummageSaleReject bandit" was very, ''very'' fuzzy.

* The Argentine survivalist blogger Fernando "Ferfal" Aguirre, owner of the site [[http://ferfal.blogspot.com/ Surviving in Argentina]], frequently examines this trope. Having experienced the economic crisis in Argentina in 2001-02, which led to a breakdown in civil authority, he noted that the major cities were the first places where law and order was restored, while the countryside was for months crawling with bandits and gangs who would make short work of any would-be survivalists who [[DeathByIrony decided to head out to the sticks to escape the feared chaos in the cities]].

* In the final eponymous ''Franchise/{{Quatermass}}'' TV series, Britain and by implication other parts of the Earth are in the early stages of this, due to out-of-control youth violence and delinquency. [[spoiler:It's implied to be due to alien interference.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', Junkertown and the rest of the Junker faction is styled like this. This is contrast to the rest of the universe, which is more akin to TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture. For reference, Junkertown is in the middle of [[Film/MadMax the Australian Outback]].

* ''Manga/{{AKIRA}}'' and its film adaptation both have this take on a [[TokyoFireball post-apocalyptic Tokyo]], following the story of two teenage [[JapaneseDelinquents biker punks]] in veritable city of sin; in the manga, this intensifies to a full societal degeneration after [[spoiler: [[CreepyChild Akira]] wakes up and levels the city, leaving [[BewareTheSuperman Tetsuo]] and his young, fanatical followers the closest thing to a structure society has left]].

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' plays this trope straighter, with only a handful of decent town structures, and the entire wasteland filled with small gangs of raiders who have no organization amongst themselves at all.

** In ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' ''The Nuka World DLC'', you can run your own gang of raiders by becoming the overboss. [[spoiler:However, if Preston Garvey witnesses you joining the raiders or you take over a settlement with your raider gangs, he will permanently refuse to work for you.]]
