* ''Film/TheGodfather'' is the TropeCodifier. The genesis of the modern media portrayal, though the actual word 'mafia' was [[NotUsingTheZWord notably absent]] from the film versions. (Ironically, it would go on to influence real-life mafia culture, particularly the [[DamnItFeelsGoodToBeAGangster glamorous self-image]] that would be aspired to, and the word "godfather" itself.) The producers of ''The Godfather'' were able to speak to a real member of the Mafia, who provided some of his 'boys' for crowd-control on-set. In exchange, he made several requests, one of which was that the word 'mafia' be removed from the script (the director agreed, which was easy enough to do -- considering that it wasn't in the script in the first place).

The ''Godfather'' franchise made TheMafia an UnbuiltTrope, as it depicts the inherent weakness of the Mafia, leading up to its downfall. It also unbuilds some mafia-related tropes, such as NothingPersonal and ShameIfSomethingHappened.

* ''Literature/TheSilerianTrilogy'': The Honored Society is a fantasy version, where water wizards extort tribute from people by controlling their water supplies, cutting it off if they refuse. Additionally, they have assassins who kill whoever displeases them, but can also be hired to get revenge on others' behalf, though it's extremely costly.

* The Mafia makes several appearances in ''Series/{{CSI}}'', unsurprisingly considering [[UsefulNotes/LasVegas the location]]. ''Series/{{CSINY}}'' also dealt with a New York branch, and particularly, The Tanglewood Boys, a gang of Mafioso youth. Early on, any Mafia episode usually contains a [[BlatantLies "…but the Mafia haven't been active in UsefulNotes/LasVegas since the 80s"]] line. Don't want to [[TheMasquerade scare away the tourists]], after all.
