*** The first few princes of Moscow - starting with Daniel, Alexander Nevsky's youngest son - continued collaborating, and were able to expand their territory and conquer other petty Russian principalities with the approval and sometimes active support of the Mongols. Eventually, the Muscovite state grew strong enough to first break free from Mongol rule and then [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge conquer all the remnants of the Golden Horde]].

** In Chapter 3, with the help of the Bounty Hunter, the Sith Empire has managed to convince the entire Corellian Council, including the Prime Minister, to join them with the promise of making their elected offices [[PresidentForLife lifetime appointments]] with absolute power. However, the Corellian people are not the kind that would willingly role over for foreign invaders (it's Han Solo and Wedge Antilles' homeworld after all). They rise up against the traitorous council and the Sith occupiers, with Republic and Jedi eventually arriving to retake the world, leading to a very DecisiveBattle that [[spoiler: the Republic wins]]. Several quests on the Republic side (both class and faction based) involve chasing down and capturing the traitors so that they can face justice.

The Imperial planetary storyline in particular has the player working alongside Darbin Sull, a particularly slimy politician looking to become the new Prime Minister.

* In ''Ben10Omniverse'' episode "Frogs of War Part 2", Will Harangue, one of Ben's most vocal critics, sings the praises of the Incurseans who conquered Earth, because they launched Ben into space in a prison pod. Later episode "Return to Forever" states that afterwards Harangue lost viewership because of said praise-singing. [[NeverMyFault Which he, of course, blames Ben for it.]]

** [[UnfortunateNames Pius Thicknesse]] controls the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, and [[spoiler: after Rufus Scrimgeour's death, the entire Minstrey of Magic]]. In the books this is the result of MindControl, but in the movies it is implied to be voluntary.

* Senator Viqi Shesh from the ''Literature/NewJediOrder'' willing works with [[ScaryDogmaticAliens the Yuuzhan Vong invasion]], though it would be a stretch to say she was ''loyal'' to them her first loyalty was always to herself- she merely wanted to ensure her survival and position by teaming up with what looked like the winning side). This came back to bite her in the end, as the Vong, horrible as they were, actually had a rather strict code of conduct and found an obviously self-serving traitor repellant. Shesh found herself constantly scrambling to keep herself indispensible to [[TheDragon the Warmaster]] lest she be [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness unceremoniously killed off]].

* In the ''ComicStrip/DanDare'' story "Operation Saturn", an aristocratic scientist called Blasco plans to conquer Earth with help from the Rootha, the ruling aristocracy of the moons of Saturn. On arrival, he discovers that the Rootha are in fact Quislings themselves (and the trip explicitly calls them this). The true ruler of Saturnia is a being called Vora, who came from outer space. Vora actually intends to set Blasco up in a similar position to the Rootha, and Blasco is entirely willing to go along with this. Their fates? [[spoiler: Dan helps Saturnian rebels overthrow Vora, who sets off to conquer Earth and abandons the Rootha to the mercy of the rebels. Later, in a desperate struggle to save Earth, Digby accidentally knocks Blasco's space helmet off and he suffocates. Seeing this, a defeated Vora then turns his guns on himself]].

** There was a somewhat similar advertising campaign used by [[McDonalds]] in Finland around the turn of the millennium, where a anthropomorphic pig was standing on the streets around christmas shouting [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MIDusVEjcE Syökää Kanaa]], meaning "eat chicken" and telling people about promotions at McDonalds. Naturally the pig had ulterior motives for this, mainly the fact that during christmas, it's tradition in Finland to eat ham, which comes from, you guessed it, pig. So, the pig was promoting chicken in order to try convince people to eat something besides his kind.
