* ''Series/{{Blindspot}}'' revolves almost entirely around a conspiracy of epic proportions set in motion by a US-American terrorist group labelled "Sandstorm" more than twenty years prior to the events of the series. Their ultimate goal is [[spoiler:to expose and put an end to corruption and power abuse. While a noble goal per se, their plans to achieve it involve plunging the entire US into chaos, making large parts of it uninhabitable by detonating dirty bombs in major population centers, and replacing the current government with people of their choosing]]. Sandstorm's fighters are exceedingly well trained[[note]]they're led by an ex-Special Forces general and count a great many former elite soldiers among their numbers[[/note]], funded and equipped, they're fanatically devoted to their cause, and they'll stop at absolutely nothing to achieve their goals.

* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' has the Landwehr, a neo-Nazi group who emphasize Nietzschean philosophy and actually manage to take over much of the Midwest as [[FallenStatesOfAmerica the United States collapses]] due to decades of economic, demographic and cultural decay. They serve as an evil counterpart and foil to the protagonist faction, the Christian Marines, who are themselves a relatively more sympathetic take on the RightWingMilitiaFanatic concept.

Basically, a group of terrorists who are mostly from the West (Typically defined as the continents of UsefulNotes/NorthAmerica and UsefulNotes/{{Europe}}, though UsefulNotes/SouthAmerica and UsefulNotes/{{Oceania}} can also be included), 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 is 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 is "Western" and who is not). Furthermore, several culturally and/or politically European countries (Turkey, Cyprus, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, Kazakhstan and Russia) have the majority of or all their land in Asia, and thus terrorists from those countries could be considered either Western or Eastern, depending on what part of the country they are from and/or whether you consider them European or Asian.

* ''The Trigger'' by ArthurCClarke and Michael Kube-[=McDowell=] uses fictional examples of Conspiracy [=/=] Terrorists Without a Cause and Reactionary Militias, and an apparently real-life but rather obscure one, Los Macheteros (terrorists for Puerto Rican independence.) Wouldn't be so noticeable if Eastern and Middle Eastern terrorists weren't absent.
