Much of these policies arose from the aftermath of WorldWarTwo and ImperialJapan, especially the rampant abuses and societal domination of the [[UsefulNotes/KatanasOfTheRisingSun Imperial Armed Forces]]. The nuclear weapon policy in particular is a reaction to the fact that Japan is the only nation to have ever been attacked with nuclear weapons. The [=JSDF=] is never officially referred to as a "military", "army", "air force", "navy", "{{sentai}}" or any other similar term.

As of 2015, Japan clearly intends to become a major player in the global arms trade, starting with making its first appearance at the [[http://www.janes.com/article/52803/japanese-p-1s-to-visit-riat-djibouti-in-first-overseas-trip UK International Air Tattoo]] marketing its Kawasaki P-1 ASW (anti-submarine warfare) plane. In July 2015, the lower house of the Japanese parliament [[http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2015/07/16/world/asia/ap-as-japan-military.html?_r=0 approved legislation]] that would allow JSDF forces to engage in military operations outside of Japan for the first time since the second world war.

* In ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', the JSDF frequently deliver TheWorfBarrage to the MonsterOfTheWeek. In ''End of Evangelion'', [[LeaveNoSurvivors they systematically shoot ''everyone'']]. Even people attempting to surrender. Or--rather, ''especially''--children.

* ''VideoGame/SplinterCell: Chaos Theory'' has Japan forming a new branch of the JSDF: the Information Self-Defense Forces. Their role is signal intelligence and electronic warfare, having the potential to remotely shutdown attacking forces, even to the point of disrupting their own national power grids. As this ''could'' potentially be used offensively to strike well outside of Japan's borders (while not actually leaving it) this falls into a grey area of the post-war constitutional restrictions. Predictably, this has the effect of raising international tensions in east Asia, particularly with China and both North and South Korea. It is this international scenario which kicks off the plot in typical Creator/TomClancy style. [[spoiler: Oh, and they're the Bad Guys.]]
