* ''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.

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'': At first, it's assumed that the Ganglion the heroes are fighting against are an alien race bent on destroying humanity for some reason. Later in the game we learn that the Ganglion is actually a crime syndicate... and not a particularly powerful one in the grand scheme of things. At least, not compared to the government they operate under, the Samaar Federation, who have control over multiple entire galaxies.
