* ''Literature/AlexisCarew: Mutineer'' is explicitly based on [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Hermione_(1782)#Mutiny the historical mutiny]] aboard HMS ''Hermione''. Captain Neals is a {{Jerkass}} from the beginning, free with the lash and doing his damnedest to drive Alexis to resignation out of sexism, but he finally goes too far when he disrates[[note]]busts her down to common sailor from midshipman[[/note]] Alexis for refusing to beg forgiveness on bended knee and has her flogged as well. Within a day, the mutiny that had been threatened in an earlier chapter ends in the enlisted crew locking up the officers, killing most of the Marines, and sailing into enemy territory to seek asylum.

* Though, if one includes the Royal Indian Navy Mutiny of 1946, that isn't quite the last. It was slightly unusual that, while it started due to poor conditions and inadequate pay, it took on a different tack within a day or two due to the Independence Movement in India. TheOtherWiki elaborates it.

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', after Bandana becomes acting captain of the Mechane, she comes into conflict with chief engineer Andi, who considers her unworthy of the captaincy due to being on the ship for less time, and due to still thinking of Bandana as the kid she once babysat. Tensions come to a head during a battle when Andi, fed up with Bandana's decisions, [[WrenchWhack knocks her out with a wrench]] and takes command.

[[spoiler: She then proves herself utterly inept at leadership, enough that a tied-up Bandana is eventually able to convince the rest of the crew to let her go; one DeathGlare later, and a panicked Andi quickly surrenders control back to her.]]

* Mutinying was rather infamous during the VietnamWar, including throwing a grenade into an unpopular commanding officer's tent while making it seem as though the enemy threw it inside, to which in some cases the Pentagon even encouraged that behavior in certain circumstances. This type of mutiny even has a name: Fragging.

* ''Film/TheCaineMutiny'', and the book of the same name by Herman Wouk on which the movie was based, concerns a mutiny aboard a WWII destroyer-minesweeper against a captain accused of cowardice and incompetence. In the end, the mutineers are acquitted, but their attorney tells them that if they'd stood by their captain, it never would have been necessary to unseat him.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', a group of Night's Watch brothers, after surviving a large-scale attack by the undead Others, take shelter in a small keep owned by Craster, a sometimes friend of the Watch. During their stay, Craster mocks the Brothers and feeds them only meager rations, claiming that it is all he can afford to give. Several of the watchmen, half-starved and nearly crazed from the battle and subsequent retreat, accuse him of holding out on them, claiming that he must have ample stores for the coming winter to supply himself and his many wives. Lord Commander Mormont tries to put an end to their belligerence but is cut down by his own men, who proceed to murder Craster, raid his stores, and rape his women. Only [[DirtyCoward Samwell]] holds back, fleeing the keep before the traitors recover themselves to bring word back to Castle Black about the Lord Commander's death.
