* The Shadow Fist Society from WildCards. They're a rag tag bunch of street gangs united by DiabolicalMastermind Kien Phuc, and they easily rival, if not exceed, the influence of the local Mafia family. Part of it is that they willingly accept and employ [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual Jokers and Aces.]]

* Enfant in ''Anime/{{Madlax}}''.
* Les Soldats in ''Anime/{{Noir}}'', although they also venture quite far into the AncientConspiracy territory.
** Indeed, the main conflict in the organization revolves between those who emphasize the AncientConspiracy angle, and those who just perceive themselves as The Syndicate - that is, the idealists and the pragmatists.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has the Camonna Tong, the native Dunmer [[TheMafia Mafia]]. They're involved with nearly every seedy operation going on in Vvardenfell, particularly smuggling and drugs. They invert the RuthlessForeignGangsters trope, as they are much more ruthless than their Imperial import counterpart, the ThievesGuild, who avoids murder and generally practices HonorAmongThieves. The way they operate is very Mafia-esque, with Orvas Dren as the kingpin of the operation while they conduct business out of [[LegitimateBusinessmensSocialClub legitimate bars and taverns]]. More recently, they've even gotten involved with the [[ReligionOfEvil Sixth House cult]], whose promises of driving the Empire out of Morrowind meshes well with the Tong's utter hatred of outlanders. The Tong has two members of the [[ProudMerchantRace House Hlaalu]] council in their pocket, and also have control over the Fighters Guild [[spoiler:due to controlling the faction leader's gambling debts]]. As if that [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil weren't all bad enough]], they also take it upon themselves to enforce Morrowind's pro-slavery laws, which includes hiring bounty hunters to ruthlessly hunt down escaped slaves while they themselves are known to use slaves as drug mules. Finally, their leader, Orvas Dren, is planning to have his brother, [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Duke of Vvardenfell]] Vedam Dren, assassinated.

* ''Filme/GameOfDeath": In the 1978 version, Dr. Land's group even calls itself the syndicate, resides in the Red Pepper restaurant, controls the whole martial arts industry and takes its fair share out of bets.
