* ''TabletopGame/EclipsePhase'' has another case of [[EarthThatWas earth]] being substituted for another well-populated planet. Some years after The Fall the Mars-based [[OneNationUnderCopyright Planetary Consortium]] attempted to extend their reach to the Extropian and Anarchist habs in the Belt and Outer System, ostensibly because they were software piracy havens (apparently neither anarcho-collectivists or anarcho-capitalists recognize copyrights). The anarchists banded together with the Titanian Commonwealth to form the [[TheAlliance Autonomist Alliance]] and got the Constortium to reconsider.

* The backstory of ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' has this occurring all the damned time. It's not always strictly, or solely, ''Earthly'' aggression as other interstellar empires have had their own share of rulers ranging from ruthlessly pragmatic to downright villainous as well, but Earth has still been at the center of much of it -- sometimes openly (Terran Alliance vs. colonists early on, Star League vs. Periphery states later), sometimes not (ComStar in the guise of a neutral service provider secretly vs. ''all'' the Successor States).

* In CharlesHarness' TheRingOfRitornel, Earth has been bombed back to the Azoic after starting a nuclear war against rebellious colonies, and is so execrated that most people have forgotten that "Terror" used to be "Terra".

* The whole plot of ''Anime/ArmitageIII'' is based on this, though during the events of the OAVs it's only a threat that Earth is dangling over Mars' head.

** The original ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' had the Principality of Zeon, who declared war on the Earth Federation and then tried to ColonyDrop their military headquarters right off the map[[note]]They missed and ended up wiping Sydney, Australia off the map instead[[/note]]. The [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam next]] [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ couple]] [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack of]] [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn stories]] spring from this conflict (and the ExpandedUniverse implies that there's some Zeon influence even [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamF91 further down]] [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam the line]].

* ''Martian Rainbow'' by Robert L. Forward plays with the trope a little. First, a Russian colony on Mars is forcibly conquered by American-led United Nations forces when the Russians won't let anyone else set up colonies there. Then the resulting UN scientific colony is cut off after the leader of that multinational fleet hooks up with a [[SinisterMinister corrupt televangelist]], gets himself elected [[PresidentEvil President]] [[OneWorldOrder of the World]], and makes all space travel illegal as part of a general anti-science campaign to satisfy his religious backers, who have in the meantime declared him the new Messiah. So the scientists in the Mars Colony, cut off from resupply and rescue, are essentially forced to admit they are now independent, and try to make a go of things. Finally, they send the chief scientist from the Mars base, who happens to be the identical twin brother of the DarkMessiah President of Earth, to assassinate his brother and take his place, and resume legal space travel. Did I mention that both twins are Neil Armstrong's identical grandsons?

* In ''Literature/{{Aeon 14}}: Destiny Lost'', the AST (short for Alpha Centauri, Sol, Tau Ceti) acts as TheEmpire for the era, forcing many smaller polities to build huge navies to ward them off: it's mentioned that New Eden (82 Eridani) cannot win, but has enough ships to make any conquest attempt by the AST a PyrrhicVictory.
