* ''VideoGame/SplinterCell: Chaos Theory'' has a North Korean anti-ship missile sink a U.S. Navy vessel right before they launch an all-out attack on South Korea. Two missions involve Sam infiltrating a North Korean missile battery to obtain intelligence on the circumstances of the launch, and the mission after takes him to war-torn Seoul, right in the middle of a massive NKA garrison. [[spoiler: The missile was remotely launched by the real BigBad, and North Korea is being manipulated the entire time.]]

* In general, North Korea tends to get used as a placeholder for the Chinese, typically when the story's already been written and the marketing boys have to come in and point out that China is a ''really big market'' and the product's gonna be sold there too, so find somebody else. Whenever you see a modern/near-future North Korea that's a credible military threat, it's a safe bet that they're China with the serial numbers filed off.

Like the KPA and KPN, the KPAF does not lack in quantity but has serious issues with quality. The majority of their 1700 aircraft are Cold War era relics, which only roughly 400 more modern fighters acquired from Russia and China. They even have a number of [[SchizoTech biplane transports]] that they favor because [[BoringButPractical they can be operated from short, improvised landing strips and are notoriously hard to detect on radar]]. KPAF military doctrine is mostly based off the old Soviet air doctrine, as well as their experiences with American heavy bombing during the Korean War. As a result, the KPAF is mostly concerned with air defence, mostly consisting of fighters and interceptors. This is complemented by the worlds densist air defence network, with some 12,000 [[MoreDakka Anti-Aircraft Guns]], [[MacrossMissileMassacre up to 1000 heavy SAM's]], and some 17,000 Man Portable Air Defence systems.

North Korea also developed its own weapons industry, starting with the Nodong missile (the TropeNamer), and eventually nuclear weapons, cheating the UsefulNotes/UnitedNations inspectors in their "peaceful" quest for nuclear energy. Ironically, they've started their nuclear program in earnest since US, hoping the regime to crumble after Kim Il-Sung's death and wishing to push them a little, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero in turn cheated Northerners out]] of the already agreed genuinely peaceful nuclear energy deal in late Nineties. Unfortunately, this only reaffirmed Koreans' belief that Westerners cannot be trusted.

Ironically, they've started their In 1994, the U.S. and North Korea signed a treaty intended to halt the North's nuclear program in earnest since US, hoping return for the regime to crumble after Kim Il-Sung's lifting of sanctions, with the Clinton administration operating under the assumption that North Korea would collapse anyway following the death of Kim Il-sung. Once that did not happen, and wishing to push them a little, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero in turn cheated Northerners out]] once the Republican party gained control of the already agreed genuinely peaceful nuclear energy U.S. Congress and opposed the treaty, believing it to be tantamount to appeasement, the deal in late Nineties.
