Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Anarchism is an umbrella term for a bunch of views that advocate the reduction or elimination (or even simply ignoring) of hierarchic power and its replacement by various forms of voluntary non-hierarchical cooperation. Historically, many anarchists encourage nonviolent means for this goal.
Since the 19th century, after anarchism began to take form as a social movement, news, propaganda, and fiction have vilified anarchists as maniacs who simply want nothing but chaos, destruction, and anarchy for anarchy's sake. Anarchists often fill the role of Terrorists Without a Cause. This also tended to be the stereotypical image of communists for many Westerners until the "Orwellian intellectual infiltrating the government" image gained popularity starting in the 1940s.
The "bomb-throwing" image of the anarchist was locked into the mindset of the public after the 1886 Haymarket Square riot in Chicago, where eight anarchists went on trial for a bomb that was thrown at a rally (they were not actually charged with throwing it, as some weren't even at the rally; instead they were charged with inciting the action, being influential anarchist figures in Chicago). Most people had probably never paid much attention to one of the 19th century's many radical social movements before, but the sensationalized spread of the incident left a negative impression in media for a long time. The assassination of several heads of governments by anarchists during the following twenty years (most notably French President Marie François Sadi Carnot, Spanish Prime Minister Antonio Cánovas, Austrian Empress Elisabeth, Italian King Umberto I, and American President William McKinley) didn't help them either. During this period some anarchists advocated violent acts as "attentats" i.e. a means of drawing attention to their cause to spark a revolution by inspiring others, called "propaganda of the deed". Obviously, this backfired horribly, painting them as entirely depraved terrorists.

Traditionally equipped with a Cartoon Bomb, described by one stock image-hosting site as an "old-fashioned anarchist-style round bomb with burning fuse." Modern depictions favor dynamite sticks and Molotov cocktails.
Subtrope of Strawman Political.

The Freedom faction from STALKER are a loose-knit clan of Stalkers who push for free access into the Zone and ways for humans to harmoniously integrate into it, seeing the region as a scientific marvel and a way to get a truly free life. Freedom's ideals often put them into conflict with the Ukrainian military (as Freedom wishes to end the Ukrainian government's monopoly on the Zone) and their main rivals Duty (a faction of regimented ex-soldiers who ultimately wish to find a way to destroy the Zone completely). Unlike Duty, Freedom has a very decentralised organisation structure and a relaxed and informal attitude: there are no ranks, and members often casually refer to each other as "bro" and consume alcohol and marijuana. Despite this, Freedom are a deceptively competent fighting force.

The 1900s version of Casualty had a storyline based on an explosion in London thought to be the work of Russian anarchists/communists, and the police invade the hospital receiving room looking for the bombers, subjecting anyone of vaguely Eastern European extraction to intense questioning, one of whom is injured in the conflagration...before the explosion is revealed to have been due to gas.

Discussed in Beyond the Borders; Rachel thinks that because she considers herself "an anarchist, kind of", she should know about Molotov Cocktails. Given that she thinks this while desperately trying to remember how to make one, it seems she is not an example.

Rick and Morty: Rick Sanchez was one in his past with Bird Person and Squanchy, committing atrocities against the Galactic Government, and he continues to be an anti-authoritarian and anti-institutional maverick in the present, mocking school, family, marriage, society, and even the Council of Ricks. In The Rickchurian Mortydate, his condescension and belittling of the POTUS, the man in charge of the country which he is a citizen of in the Multiverse, leads to a major crisis, with Rick being branded as a terrorist, and having his citizenship removed, and Rick coming close to killing the head of state which he probably would have gone ahead with had Morty not found a safe place for him and his family, forcing Rick to restore the status-quo.

Cowboy Bebop had the Teddy Bomber, a character existing only to be a bounty to be chased and fought over by Spike and Andy. He constantly tries to outline his manifesto but the two egomaniac heroes ignore him in their scrap to prove superiority over the (practically identical) other. We discover that in the end, his bombing was an attempt to call attention to, and level, the vast inequalities in society.

The Followers of the Apocalypse from Fallout: New Vegas are an anarchist faction that averts this trope. Mistrusting organized governments, they provide technological and humanitarian aid equally to all and urge the player character against actions that would give a government full control over the Mojave Wasteland. However, certain overly-zealous members are not above extreme actions to get what they want, including assassinating an NCR trooper who found out that they were stealing water to grow crops.
Played straight by Samuel Cooke of the Powder Gangers. All the Powder Gangers are escaped cons; he was in for, well, being one of these. He seems to have no real long-term plans except for making bombs to harass the NCR and joining the Great Khans (who also hate the NCR). He's actually the only member of the gang with this mentality, as the ones near the NCR Correctional Facility are just raiders, and one of his own henchmen wants to surrender before Cooke drags them all to their deaths.
The Honest Hearts DLC introduces the "Fight the Power!" perk, which is represented by Vault Boy wearing a bandana and throwing a molotov cocktail and gives you a damage bonus to members of the NCR, Caesar's Legion and the Brotherhood of Steel.

Dutch Van Der Linde of Red Dead Redemption is an outlaw who is motivated by a hatred for the American government and the civilization and industrialism that they bring to the dying frontier, though at that point most of his motivation is just to cause as much chaos as possible in an attempt to justify his existence. This trait is downplayed in the prequel, which shows how his ideals eventually eroded into madness.

Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker in The Dark Knight describes himself as an "agent of chaos" and talks about anarchy rather a lot - and does love Stuff Blowing Up - but it's pretty obvious he doesn't have any real politics apart from doing things For the Evulz. The Joker was more of an Illegalist, a type of French anarchism where crime is considered the only true expression of anarchy. Essentially For the Evulz is the Joker's political cause, as he thinks everyone should be like that. He seems to fashion himself as a sort of dark trickster figure, particularly in opposition to Batman as an upholder of law and ORDER (thus the Joker would aspire to unlawful and chaotic acts).

It is very possible to play like this in Watch_Dogs 2. Your character is a member of a group of hacktivists based on Anonymous whose goal is to disrupt and reveal the secrets of shady businesses and organizations to the public. While the game is centered around using Hollywood Hacking and stealth to get to your goals, there is absolutely nothing stopping you from simply gunning down everyone in your way and making extensive use of homemade IEDs.

Infamously, the Anarchist Cookbook contained amateur recipes for homemade explosives (seriously, it's a very bad idea to try this at home). There was no overt connection to anarchism as a serious philosophy except that the author seemed very interested in blowing things up as a form of protest.

Vampire: The Masquerade averted this in two ways:
The Brujah clan, once known as a clan of passionate philosopher-kings, who tended more towards impulsive radicalism in modern nights. While the clan tends more towards the "throw a brick through a Starbucks window" school of anarchy, however, it does have its share of passionate intellectuals who prefer to argue the merits of anarchy rather than enforce it with their fists.
The Anarchs, a general faction of vampires who believe the Camarilla are a bunch of outmoded feudal lords with their heads up their butts and the Sabbat are a band of psychopaths. They institute their own systems and fight to establish baronies free from Camarilla control, with political systems varying from baron to baron.
It should be notable that by the mid-nineties in which the setting is set, the only Anarch holdings left in the world is the US West Coast, which is being invaded by the Sabbat from Mexico, the Camarilla from the east, and the Kuei-Jin coming in by boat from the west, which showcases just how successful the Anarchs are.
However, by the time 5th ed. rolls around and the metaplot moves forward to mid-The New '10s, the Anarchs have come back with a vengeance. A number of disasters, from mass defections to YouTube to the Inquisition kicking back into gear and a number of three-letter agencies starting to get a hint, have caused the Camarilla to wane and the Sabbat to all but vanish. The Anarchs are simply better suited to living on the fringes of society and have filled a lot of that power vacuum.

The Trope Image is taken from Larry Gonick's Cartoon History of the United States, part of his The Cartoon History of the Universe series, humorously lampshaded the common stereotype of anarchists as mad, bearded bombers ("smell like garlic... foreign accent... burning fuse") during the 1880s Red Scare after the Haymarket Bombing.

Batman villain (and obvious V Expy) Anarky is also a subversion. Sure, he's regularly put against Batman, but he's able to explain his motivations clearly and is often painted as more of an Anti-Hero who just happens to think violent means are okay against certain targets. He even had his own book for a few issues. As of late, however, in the last few issues of Robin, there seems to be a new guy behind the mask who hews closer to this trope, and the actual Anarky is stuck in a technopathic coma seeking revenge. The original author is apparently not pleased with this development. Unlike V, he was even a Technical Pacifist.

Star Cops had one of these as a one-off villain, though he preferred Hollywood Hacking to explosives. He was also a relatively sophisticated example, averting the usual Anarchy Is Chaos portrayal by claiming, in his own words:

Weaver And Jinx features Maribel, aka 'Jinx'. Who dislikes the Protectorate and Wards, states that she plans to shut Shadow Stalker's power down during a fight with the local gangs, if the opportunity presents itself, and generally offers the most vicious options to solve the problems her team faces. She still manages to be fairly mild compared to some of the real monsters in the Worm Universe.

In Urban Chaos: Riot Response the main villains are a bunch of anarchist pyromaniacs called "The Burners" who kill indiscriminately, wear painted hockey masks, and are really brainwashed employees of a corporation who want to "burn the city alive" to "make the country pay for its exploitation of 3rd world countries."

Whenever anti-globalization activists or environmentalists (of any stripe) show up on Law & Order or other Police Procedurals, they are invariably this. If the producers wish to explore their motivations, they will turn out to be Well Intentioned Extremists who believe Utopia Justifies the Means but undergo a Villainous Breakdown or Epiphany Therapy in response to a Kirk Summation.

Donn Throgg from Arcanum: Of Steamworks & Magick Obscura is a subversion. His M.O. is typical of the trope, but politically he is a right-leaning (relatively speaking, he's still quite socialist by any standards) union activist, who saw violence as the only way to stop the rampant abuse of orcs, half-orcs, and poor humans by Tarantian factory owners. If you can convince him to continue the struggle by peaceful means, Throgg eventually runs for President of Tarant.

Referenced in Tintin: King Ottokar's Sceptre. When Tintin sneaks into the palace to warn the king about the plot, he is captured by guards in the middle of a ball. The guests are told that Tintin was an anarchist, causing one of the guests to faint. (Of course, the book was written around the time when anarchists were practically synonymous with terrorists.)

Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War features A World With No Boundaries, a terrorist organization with the quite anarchist goal of the immediate dissolution of all borders, and whose plan to use a nuclear weapon to kill a large portion of world leaders all at once is not unlike the classic "propaganda of the deed" carried out on a grand scale.

In Suffragette the protagonists are technically women's rights activists, not anarchists. However, after they have blown up the (empty) manor of a member of parliament one of the men in power says something about considering this "level of anarchy" unacceptable. Though it's not as if the suffragists weren't beaten up by the police before that.

Timeless: Lucy pretends they are anarchists hijacking the Hindenburg to get it down before the bomb that's onboard goes off (specifically the Anarchist Black Cross, an actual anarchist organization, though they're not terrorists, but only support imprisoned anarchists and other radicals). When the Hindenburg explodes anyway then, it's recorded as if that's what happened, and they're the suspects.

Looking Backward: Discussed by Dr. Leete and Julian, the latter saying the anarchists in the late 1800s were actually subsidized by the capitalists to scare people off socialism from its association with terrorist violence. This was a big issue at the time the book was written in 1888. A year prior to this, for instance, four anarchists were hanged over a conspiracy to murder police with a bomb in Chicago, though it's doubtful which (if any) actually did it (four others had also been convicted-one killed himself, the rest were pardoned).

Aversion: Ryan from The Nameless Mod looks like he's just a Terrorist Without A Cause at first, who happens to be fighting against the Big Bad of the game. But when you talk to him and learn that he's an anarchist, he explains his motives, he comes off as much more sympathetic, and it makes him into a different type of character.

7th Sea has an entire Secret Society of Bomb Throwing Anarchists with its own splatbook. While the Rilisciare's reasons for being anti-authoritarian (nobles in the setting have access to sorcery that is causing the barrier between the physical world and Hell to slowly weaken, and non-powered nobles have a history of betraying the Free Thinkers) are clearly stated, the society's history includes the point where they extended their enmity to include anyone with power, even mundane political power. Plus, all the good explosives abilities and equipment are in their splatbook (including the "Arson" and "Bomb-making" skills and a coat with hidden explosives in the buttons).

The Red Lotus from The Legend of Korra, who want to "restore balance" by tearing down society and destroying the world's leaders.

The Revolutionaries in Fallen London are frequently this, although it's noted at one point that they've largely moved on from Cartoon Bombs to dynamite. Most of them just want the Masters and their Bazaar to go home, their higher echelons are truly anarchic to horrifying degrees: They feel oppressed by the laws of nature and physics, and want to end them. And since these laws are enforced by starlight...

Goblin Anarchists in Golden Krone Hotel have sticks of dynamite and explode violently upon death. Hope you've got some bullets or offensive magic to take them out at a distance.

"Tabloid" in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is described as one almost word-for-word, but it is later downplayed when it turns out he was arrested for expressing dissenting views about the war and apparently throwing a single rock at an Osean embassy.* However, in-game dialogue shows that he has views that are eerily reminiscent of the terrorist group A World With No Boundaries, a terrorist organization from the Belkan War who very nearly caused The End of the World as We Know It in Strangereal, so its somewhat easier to imagine that he would be seen as a dangerous terrorist instead of someone who got a bit mouthy and hucked a rock at a politician.
