* ''[[Film/EdgeOfDarkness1943 Edge of Darkness]]'': Johann was a follower of ''the'' Quisling, having gone over to the Germans in 1940 when they invaded Norway. He regrets it.

** Another, more recent American "Quisling" would be Timothy McVeigh, a teenager from Upstate New York who was revealed to have been the mastermind behind the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oklahoma_City_bombing 1995 Oklahoma City bombings]].

** Mr. Burns in has been heavily suggested to have been aiding the Germans throughout the World Wars and, unlike [[Film/SchindlersList Schindler]], takes pride in having built shells for the Nazis which ''worked'', dammit! It's even implied that him botching Abe Simpson's assassination attempt on Hitler was ''not'' just an accident.

DependingOnTheWriter though it's unclear on which side he started with (he has a S.S membership card and the Fuhrer fired him after the Plywood Pelican's fiasco).

* Cassius Ceramix in ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}} and the Big Fight'' is one played for laughs: he forces his village to adhere to Roman customs to an absurd degree (for example, he orders an aqueduct to be built in the village despite a river running right through it. When someone points this out, he orders that the river be ''diverted'' because "aqueducts are more ROMAN!") and addresses the Roman [[VillainOfTheWeek Villains of the Week]] as "our beloved invaders."

The Roman even laughs that if all the Gallo-Romans were like Ceramix Rome would be Gaulish looking.

* George Sairas (President Chicken-Maggot) in ''Manga/DeathNote''.

* George "President Chicken-Maggot" Sairas (President Chicken-Maggot) in ''Manga/DeathNote''.''Manga/DeathNote'' earns his nickname from collaborating with Kira after his predecessor [[DrivenToSuicide kills himself]] following a failed operation against the mafia (one that may or may not have been caused by the actual Kira writing in the Death Note).


Added DiffLines:

* In ''LightNovel/NoGameNoLife'', when Sora and Shiro first arrive in Disboard, they see a tournament held to determine the next ruler of Elkia, the last city of Imanity. The candidate closest to winning, Kurami([[spoiler:a slave of the elves]]), is collaborating with an elf named Feel([[spoiler:who treats her as a friend rather than a slave]]), who provides magical assistance that none of the other candidates can notice or hope to match, and says that if she wins, she'll make Elkia a {{Protectorate}} of the large elven nation so that Imanity won't have to face a HopelessWar against them and the other 14 more powerful races. While Sora's disgusted by Kurami's lack of faith in Imanity's potential, he concedes that an alliance with the elves is a good idea, so he seems to understand that Kurami's not after power.

* Lord Pryderi, in the final installment of the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'', has always been a loyal ally of Prince Gwydion...only to show up for the council of war and declare that the only sane option is to join the enemy. Which he does. [[spoiler:He gets RewardedAsATraitorDeserves when, on Arawn's orders, he attempts to invade Caer Dallben and the place itself destroys him.]]

** Dolores Umbridge does not have any official ties with Voldemort, but she gleefuly uses her post to enforce his FantasticRacism by running a KangarooCourt to give Muggle-borns a choice between surrendering their wands and a FateWorseThanDeath. (WordOfGod claims this earned her a life sentence in Azkaban after Voldemort's defeat.)

* ''The Ganymede Takeover'', a 1967 science fiction novel by Creator/PhilipKDick and Ray Nelson, has several such characters (as the alien invaders know this is the only effective way [[VichyEarth they can rule Earth]]), racist landowner Gus Swenesgard being the best example, though at one point even a Resistance hero is offered the job (and is tempted for a moment). Subverted in that when the aliens are finally defeated, the resistance set up Swenesgard to be their puppet ruler until democracy is restored. That is, if they ever intend to restore democracy...

* Pierre Laval, who was TheManBehindTheMan to Marshal Pétain in the Vichy French regime, and the reason "LesCollaborateurs" is a French phrase. Laval had been obsessively anti-Nazi and anti-German prior to the fall of France, but afterward decided the Nazis were the inevitable winners and did everything possible to ingratiate himself to them. When France was freed from Nazi rule, both were sentenced to death, though Pétain got his sentence commuted to life imprisonment by De Gaulle. Laval, lacking Pétain's record of WW1 heroism and advanced age, was given no such mercy.
* For the WWII French in general, before the fall of the Third Reich a slogan for French Quislings was "Better Hitler than Blum" (Blum was the Jewish French Prime minister).

* In one of the greatest ironies of WorldWarII, BenitoMussolini ended up becoming one himself during the Italian Campaign in the later years of the conflict. Early in the war, he had been a fascist dictator and conqueror in his own right, having come to power 11 whole years before Hitler, and with plans to carve out a "new Roman Empire" across the Mediterranean, for which he would inevitably need Quislings of his own. However, the Allies and his own monumental incompetence thwarted those plans and in 1943, the Allies singled him out to be the first Axis leader to fall. After the invasion of Sicily, with the Italian people angry and fed up with him, Mussolini was overthrown by King Victor Emmanuel III and General Badoglio, who signed an armistice that effectively saw Italy change sides and join the Allies. The Nazis didn't like that, and ordered the troops they had in the country to take Italy back. German commandos freed Mussolini from his prison and he was appointed head of the "Italian Social Republic", or RSI. However, the RSI was just a puppet state for the Nazis, with Mussolini and his fellow Italian fascists now fully subservient to Hitler and the ''Wehrmacht''.
