* The People's Liberation Army featured in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals''. The PRC government issued a ban on said game, considering the portrayal to be insulting. Given that no one buys original software in China, this doesn't really make much of a difference either way. Apparently the CCP objected to the first three missions, which involved a nuclear attack on the capital in one and you blowing up the HK convention center and the Three Gorges Dam in the second and third. That and the fact that the start of the game's plot has the Chinese get the stuffing kicked out of them by terrorists who are uncomfortably close to what it fears. Ironic when you consider the PLA were ultimately the ''good'' guys in that game, driving the GLA terrorists out of Western Asia and Central Europe, and in the cancelled sequel, ''Command and Conquer 2013'', [[WhatCouldHaveBeen they would have been]] the leader of the Asia-Pacific Alliance. [[note]]Incidentally, one of the most prominent and overpowered Chinese units in the expansion is indeed an armed transport helicopter, the Helix. The Helix is the NATO ReportingName of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamov_Ka-27 Kamov Ka-27]], of which China uses the Ka-28 variant. Hilariously, the real life Chinese Helix is strictly meant to be... an anti-submarine aircraft, [[JustPlaneWrong not the dedicated attack/support chopper the game makes it out to be.]][[/note]]

* In ''Literature/{{Gate}}'', Chinese special forces are one of three factions (along with American CIA and Russian Spetznaz) that try to infiltrate Japan and gain access to the titular Gate. All three groups are repelled by the [[UsefulNotes/KaijuDefenseForce JSDF]] and [[PhysicalGod Rory Mercury.]]

[[AC: [[LiveActionTVTropes Live Action TV]]]]
* In ''Series/TheBrave'', a PLA platoon shows up at the end of episode 8, "Render Safe" to stop the Russian convoy and capture the Spetsnaz squad operating illegally in their country and the remains of the secret Russian stealth drone that crashed near the Mongolian border.

You will notice this oath places the Communist Party first, ahead of both the people and motherland. For this reason, it has raised eyebrows among more apolitical militaries. (Note, this is a easy misconception from western readers. In western nations, political parties are not equal to the government. As the result, saying the army is loyal to certain political parties in the nation is equivalent of saying the armed force is only loyal to part of the government. However, China is a one party state. The party is equivalent to the government. As the result, loyal to the party is the same as loyal to the government.)

As for the loyal to the government before people and motherland part, here is the united states enlistment oath:
"I, (state name of enlistee), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God." Note that in no part the oath involves serving the people and clearly states that the loyalty is to the president and by extension the government.

Additionally, this is the oath swore by UK forces: "I, (Insert full name), do swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, her heirs and successors, according to law. So help me God." Again,the loyalty is clearly sworn to the monarch and by extension the government of the nation.

Throughout the history, the loyalty of the armed force is generally sworn to the reigning sovereign/government. In fact, communist arm forces are the only ones that actually include the people in its oath.
