* The Bombshells in [[NickSpencersCaptainAmerica Captain America: Sam Wilson]] are a group of radical leftist students who attempted to assassinate a conservative speaker because she was giving a guest lecture on the topic of border security in their campus. They embody many characteristics associated with "[[SoapboxSadie social justice warrior]]" archetype such as using words such as "safe space", "trigger warning", "privilege" and so on.

Generally, a "Western terrorist" is a terrorist fighting for something that has been an issue in the West for a long time - an ideological offshoot, for better or worse, of the legacies of the European feudal system, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, or the scientific revolution launched in the seventeenth century, like anarchism, communism, Christian religion, environmentalism, nationalism, or racism, as opposed to an issue most strongly associated with another culture (like non-Christian religion, which of course raises the fascinating question of whether to classify [[StereotypeFlip Israeli terrorists]] as Middle Eastern or Western. Same with [[AmoralAfrikaner South African terrorists]], which could be classified as either African or Western). Bear in mind that an apparently non-Western terrorist group may be secretly led by Western terrorists acting as TheManBehindTheMan. For example, this would be the case if an apparent Islamic terrorist group turned out to be part of a secret neo-Nazi plot to provoke World War III (unlikely, yes, but stranger things have happened).

Some Western Terrorists are also TerroristsWithoutACause. Often overlaps with YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters, especially when the Western Terrorists are portrayed as Irish or white supremacist. See also WhiteGangBangers.

Basically, a group of terrorists who are mostly from the West (Typically defined as North America and Europe (With the possible exceptions of Turkey, Cyprus, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Kazakhstan and Russia, which can fall under Asia and the East instead), though South America and Oceania can also be considered parts of the West), and who are mainly influenced by cultural, political or religious ideas of Western origin. The trope may also cover a single individual. What makes someone "Western" can be rather hazy and difficult to define, since it's not simply a matter of where the person was born or grew up (many Islamic terrorists, generally regarded as non-Western, lived the majority of their lives in the West, and for that matter many elements of Islamic culture - coffee and yogurt, for instance, were originally Arabic and Turkish foods, respectively - have profoundly influenced Western society and vice versa, making it tough to ascertain who's "Western" and who's not).
