* ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' has multiple randomly-generated versions:
** Privateers are a conglomeration of species from past empires who subsist by piracy
** Nomads are the peaceful version who put you in contact with other empires and might sell your empire ships or ask to settle on one of your planets.
** Marauders, added in the Apocalypse DLC, are more like Space Mongols. They occasionally raid systems or extort tribute but can also be hired as mercenaries [[spoiler: until the Great Khan arises.]]


* Series//KaizokuSentaiGokaiger features a core group of aliens who came to Earth looking for the "Greatest Treasure in the Universe". They all have reasons to hate the Space Empire Zangyack, which has followed them to Earth and has an ever increasing bounty on them as the series goes on (it gets to the point that Captain Marvelous has an unlimited bounty placed on him... Zangyack will give whatever you want, provided you can bring him in).
* UchuuSentaiKyoranger is shaping up to be this, with the core nine rangers all being selected to fight against the Jak Matter Shogunate.

* The Dendarii Mercenaries in ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' play with this. They are a little like Cossacks, being irregulars in the service of TsaristRussia RecycledInSpace and they contain individuals escaping from social pressure on Barryar including Elena and her husband and in a different way Miles himself. However they mostly contain people from any and every world in the Nexus. Also they play the "screening the Empire from external threats" role.

* The Maquis in Franchise/StarTrek. Average Federation colonists who found themselves under the Cardassians after a treaty in which they had no say. They won numerous engagements against both the Cardassians and Starfleet, with large numbers of Starfleet officers even defecting to join the 'good fight.'
** [[{{Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration}} Tasha Yar]] was raised by human dissidents on Turkana IV, where various factions were constantly at war and gang rape was a common occurrence.

* Asimov's ''Literature/{{Foundation}}'' has the Trader subculture, which roamed the galaxy trying to push AtomPunk gadgetry - first as a stalking horse for the Foundation's PathOfInspiration, and eventually as straight economic conquest by hegemony. Despite one of their own, Hober Mallow, taking complete control at the end of the first novel, ''Foundation and Empire'' has a major subplot of the small Traders in the field rebelling against the Merchant Princes who claimed to rule them. The only thing that prevented all-out civil war in the Foundation was [[OutsideContextVillain the Mule]].
