** [[TagalongKid Tag Along]] TeamMom: Ukraine (who actually wants to "defect" ''real'' bad)
** How about the Allies then? Considering that the Axis Powers are the title characters, it's safe to say that they're the {{Hero Antagonist}}:
*** BigBad - Giovanni
[[BigBad The Big Bad]]: America, though he considers himself the hero.
*** TheDragon: England (America's snarky reluctant right-hand man).
*** TheBrute: Russia (by virtue of being the [[HuskyRusskie hugest]] and the [[PsychopathicManchild insane one]]).
*** [[EvilGenius The Evil Genius]]: China (as the [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld oldest nation]], he has to be the wisest) or France (argues with England a lot, used to be quite [[TheStrategist the strategist]]).

* ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' - The Hakushuu Dinosaurs
** The BigBad & TheEvilGenius: Reiji "Marco" Maruko, ManipulativeBastard, Team Captain, quarterback and safety. He's also the one you can blame for the team's deliberately brutal style of play.
** CoDragons: [[TheJuggernaut Rikiya Gaou]] and [[PsychoSupporter Hiromi Kisiragi]], described as Hakushuu's Right Hand and Left Hand by Marco, Hiruma, and most commentators. Gaou breaks quarterbacks, runningbacks and linemen, while Kisiragi cripples recievers.
** TheBrute: Subverted. Marco clearly has former team ace [[DirtyCoward Tengu]] slotted for this role, due to his status as their best linebacker, but Tengu pissed off Gaou (which never ends well) and Marco was forced to use himself and Gaou to fill the gap in the defence.
** TheDarkChick: Team Manager Himuro "Maria" Maruko, a SugarAndIcePersonality turned EmotionlessGirl, courtesy of Marco's [[LoveMakesYouEvil interest]] in her. She's also the TokenGoodTeammate.

Louis, Hiruma's EvilCounterpart, and ManipulativeBastard and {{Chessmaster}} extraordinaire, who serves as the field leader, makes the plans, is the one team member who isn't afraid of Mr. Don, and also serves as TheEvilGenius.
** TheDragon: Patrick "Panther" Spencer, who doubles as the TokenGoodTeammate and serves as their main offensive power.
** TheBrute: Tatanka, perhaps the series crowning example of DumbMuscle. He's tall, strong, a superb reciever, and a total dunce who's attempts at learning other languages have screwed up his ability to speak English.
** TheDarkChick: Bud Walker, action movie star and wannabe cornerback. What exactly is he doing here?

Fights like an EvilGenius by [[ShapeShifter screwing with people's heads]].
** EvilGenius - [[TheMole Pride]]/[[spoiler: [[PresidentEvil King]] [[OurPresidentsAreDifferent Bradley]]]].

** TheBrute (s) - [[ColdSniper Dearka]] [[TallDarkAndSnarky Elsman]] (The proud and unsubtle owner of a {{BFG}}) and [[HotBlooded Yzak]] [[JerkAss Joule]] (a borderline SociopathicSoldier who ''really'' enjoys close-up fighting).
** TheDarkChick - [[NiceGuy Nicol]] [[TheHeart Amalfi]]: Probably the least capable pilot, Nicol makes up for it via technological advantages, including a cloaking device. Normally he'd be TheEvilGenius, but on this team, his smarts make him stand out as much or more than his nice guy personality.
** SacrificialLamb - Rusty Mackenzie, Miguel Aiman

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' - The Phantom Pain

** TheEvilGenius - [[OnlySaneMan Sting Oakley]]: The ''de facto'' leader of the Extended trio, Sting's no genius, but is the only member of the team to KnowWhenToFoldEm, and fullfills TheSmartGuy role by making sure the other two stick to the plan.
** TheBrute - [[AxeCrazy Auel Neider]]: Agressive, violent, overpotective of his "sister" Stella and (at least initially) the most unstable of the Extended trio, Auel serves as muscle and little more.
** TheDarkChick - [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Stella Louissier]]: The only female member of the Extended trio, Stella's further separated from her teammates by being an [[PsychopathicManchild emotionally-stunted]] young girl with the mentality of a kid, a crush on one of their opponents, and a genuine TragicVillain.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' - The ZAFT Team. They fit the archetype, even if they're not [[AntiVillain especially evil]] (well, except for [[DarkMessiah Durandal]]).

[[spoiler: [[HeelFaceTurn Heel Face Turns]] at the last minute and kills Durandal]].
** TheBrute - [[TheBerserker Shinn Asuka]] He's of a more [[HeroWithAnFInGood heroic]] bent then most, but still fits the profile: lack of subtlety, emotional, easily controlled by TheDragon, allows [[UnstoppableRage rage]] to cloud his reasoning.
** TheDarkChick - [[ActionGirl Lunamaria Hawke]] and/or [[TheCaptain Captain]] [[BrokenBird Talia]] [[TeamMom Gladys]] (both female, both serve for reasons other than personal loyalty to the Chairman, both have doubts about what they're doing).

* ''Anime/MazingerZ'':
** The BigBad: Dr. Hell, although he also has traits of EvilGenius.
** TheDragon: Baron Ashura.
** TheEvilGenius: Archduke Gorgon. On the surface he would seem TheBrute, but in reality he was a manipulative, conniving, scheming, MagnificentBastard prefered using his intelligence before his -considerable- physical strength- and provided the BigBad with increasingly powerful weapons.
** TheBrute: Count Brocken. Although he is not so physically powerful like Gorgon, he commanded his own corps and would often rather using strength instead of cunning. He is an ex-Nazi officer, so he definitely liked getting his hands dirty.
** TheDarkChick: Viscount Pygman. He was not a girl but [[CaptainEthnic he definitely]] [[BodyHorror stood out]] and he definitely was considered a freak. His skills, abilities and powers were also very different of his colleagues' ones.

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'':
** The League of Villains and Sensei:
*** BigBad: Sensei/[[spoiler:[[AllYourPowersCombined All For One]]]]
*** TheDragon: Shigaraki Tomura, the PsychoticManchild who leads the League of Villains and plays TheHeavy.

* The Sinclair owners from ''Manga/RaveMaster''
** [[BigBad The Big Bad]] - Lucia, runs everything, a bit of a ''DarkChick'' too. Recognizable by his own unique brand of insanity.
** [[EvilGenius The Evil Genius]] - Hardener, he's got a strange past that leads to him easily out-crazying the rest of the Sinclair owners. His final evil plan is rather spectacular
** TheBrute - Ogre, a bit of a GeniusBruiser though.
** [[DarkChick The Dark Chick]] - Doryu, a Demon King, he was good until persecution and Sinclair convinced him to abandon the light.
** TheDragon - Ashura. Another Demon King, he doesn't really fit in any of the other spots.



* ''Manga/SgtFrog'' 's VillainProtagonist team are this:
** NonActionBigBad: Keroro, as he's too lazy\busy building Gundams.
** TheDragon: Tamama, due to being the most loyal to Keroro [[StalkerWithACrush (in a creepy way)]]. Having breath attacks like an actual dragon helps.
** EvilGenius: Kululu, obviously.
** TheBrute: Giroro, with outlandish strengh and MoreDakka.
** DarkChick: Angol Mois, who's supposed to be destroying the planet, but helps the platoon try to take it over instead.
** SixthRangerTraitor: Dororo would rather protect [[EarthlingsByAnyOtherWay Pekopon]] than conquer it, and when he does help the others, it's only if it's in a peaceful way.

* While their efforts are generally unconjoined and seperate from each other, the employees of [[Manga/ShugoChara Easters]] innerwards workings can be seen like this [[spoiler: until [[ManipulativeBastard Nikaidou]], of all people, makes a [[HeelFaceTurn heel - face]] within episode 23.]]

** BigBad: Kazumu, until Gozen's existence is revealed within episode 22, although Kazumu still displays more traits of the trope (Aside from the fact that Gozen, for most of the series, never shows any portion of his body [[spoiler: (Or his real voice.)]] towards any - one.) and commands the other operatives [[spoiler: and the fact that he's (Albeit probably unintentionally.) partially responsible for Gozen's current condition any - way.]]

** TheDragon: Kazumu towards Gozen, and perhaps Nikaidou towards Kazumu him - self (While not particularly loyal towards Kazumu, he seems the one most focused upon his "job", and is probably the most apparently "dedicated" towards it. [[spoiler: (Ironically, he is the first to heel - face.)]] He also has a personal vendetta towards all of the Guardians, and, within fact,[[spoiler: every being possible with a Heart's Egg: Jealousy due towards the loss of his own as a child, soon before it was about to hatch.)]]

** TheEvilGenius: While not exactly a genius, Nikaidou probably at first fits this role, at least more than the other workers: He devises each plan of his own to capture the Embryo, including, [[spoiler:rather than capturing the original Embryo, simply making a new one instead.]] Still has evil methods, though. He can also build fully operational combat robots, as well as the machinery he uses occassionally for his plans, some - thing which stems from [[spoiler: his child - hood dreams to be a robotics programmer.]] Later upon, Yukari probably takes more of this role, due towards her finding new ways and researching more technologies in order to amplify the corruption powers of Utau's voice. [[spoiler: And the fact that Yuu just heel - faced.]]

** TheDarkChick / TheBrute: Utau, who shares the chickish trait of being captured prisoner... Only towards Easter's whims, not the Guardians. This is because the sole reason she works for them is due towards probably - violent threats towards her mother and, more importantly, Ikuto. And when she does find the Embryo, the only reason she'll take it [[AntiVillain is the desire towards wishing towards her and Ikuto's freedom.]] She's also the greatest offensive power the corporation have, which confirms her for the latter role, although she usually doesn't take pleasure for it, thus halting her from Brute position. Ikuto would also count, seeing that his Black Lynx Character Transformation form is probably upon par with Utau's Lunatic Charm Character Transformation [[spoiler: (Although Dark Jewel may be another story, despite the time limit.)]] and that he is within partly the same situation, only with threats towards Utau and his mother [[spoiler: ([[BrotherSisterIncest The same one as Ikuto's.]])]] instead, but seeing as he's [[EnigmaticMinion less likely to obey the smaller details of his orders and presented as far less helpless than Utau...]]

** FriendlyEnemy / TokenGoodTeammate / EnigmaticMinion: Ikuto, towards the point of being a main love interest. He screws around with the workers' (Especially Kazumu's.) plans and helps Amu and the other Guardians whenever he can afford towards, and constantly acts at least uncommunicatively towards any of the employee's aside from Utau, [[spoiler: his sister.]] Hell, Yuu even spies on him at times to be safe. [[spoiler: Also becomes somewhat of a Brute when he gets [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Brainwashed and Crazy]] later upon.]]

** [[DarkChick The Dark Chick]] - The [[TheWoobie unfortunate]] Eruka Frog, the [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} eccentric]] Free (who, unlike his compatriots, has no concept of 'subtlety') and the clueless [[CreepyChild Crona]]. The group's somewhat of a QuirkyMinibossSquad.

** TheBrute - Carossa
** [[DarkChick The Dark Chick]] - Fasalina

* The God Hand from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}''
** [[BigBad The Big Bad]] - Void, the eldest member who leads the ceremony that selects new members. A card-carrying BlackCloak whose [[MyBrainIsBig brain is big]].

** DragonInChief - [[FourStarBadass General Boscone]], the highest ranking general in Tudor, commander of the strongest army, and quite possibly the deadliest human combatant Guts has ever faced, which required a last minute intervention [[spoiler: in the form of Nosferatu Zodd]]. It is his defeat that destroys the morale of Tudor.
** TheEvilGenius / TheDarkChick - [[MilesGloriosus General Adon Corbowitz]], who is a rather inept general, but is a very dirty (if cowardly) fighter, with [[RunningGag secret tactics and techniques passed over through his family over the generations]].
** TheBrute - [[DumbMuscle Samson Corbowitz]], Adon's [[BigLittleBrother younger, but much bigger and stronger brother]], who is the strongest of the 100 men Adon sends against Guts and Casca, and quite vicious with a [[EpicFlail large flail]].

** TheBrute - Ogre, a bit of a GeniusBruiser though.
** [[DarkChick The Dark Chick]] - Doryu, a Demon King, he was good until persecution and Sinclair convinced him to abandon the light.
** TheDragon - Ashura. Another Demon King, he doesn't really fit in any of the other spots.

* Can we see Russia, his sisters and the Baltics from Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia as a parody of the FiveBadBand? If it's the case...
** [[BigBad The Big Bad]] ''and'' TheBrute: Russia (PsychopathicManchild version, obviously)
** TheDragon: Lithuania (rather... unwillingly)
** [[EvilGenius The Evil Genius]]: Estonia (basically, for being [[OnlySaneMan the most stable]])

** [[TagalongKid Tag Along]] TeamMom: Ukraine (who actually wants to "defect" ''real'' bad)

** How about the Allies then? Considering that the Axis Powers are the title characters, it's safe to say that they're the {{Hero Antagonist}}:
*** [[BigBad The Big Bad]]: America, though he considers himself the hero.
*** TheDragon: England (America's snarky reluctant right-hand man).
*** TheBrute: Russia (by virtue of being the [[HuskyRusskie hugest]] and the [[PsychopathicManchild insane one]]).
*** [[EvilGenius The Evil Genius]]: China (as the [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld oldest nation]], he has to be the wisest) or France (argues with England a lot, used to be quite [[TheStrategist the strategist]]).
*** [[DarkChick The Dark Chick]]: France ([[LatinLover the most suave and flirty of the bunch]]) or China (for [[DudeLooksLikeALady looking like a girl]]).

*** The DarkChick: Pandora the Conjurer, Black Magician master
*** SixthRangerTraitor: Bandit Keith who is possessed by Marik at the start of the season, but then chickens out after he regains his conscious.
** The Virtual World Arc, while Noah is the BigBad of the season, he relies on the Big Five as minions.
*** The BigBad: Oshita/Ganzley, leader of the Big Five.
*** TheDragon: Daimon/Leichter, their best duelist and shows an affinity for actual Dragon cards.
*** TheBrute: Ota/Nesbitt, who uses the brute power of his machines to duel three people at once. He eventually makes a major mistake when they duel Atem and Jounouchi, falling for Atem's bluff while the other four didn't.
*** The EvilGenius: Ooka/Johnson, who has a Deck Master with a TotalPartyKill ability to prevent swarming, uses weak monsters to not trigger Jounouchi's Traps and he is a cheater.

*** The BigBad: Dartz, the man behind the plot.

*** SixthRanger: Haga and Ryuzaki, who joined Doma for [[EvilIsPetty petty reasons]].
* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'':
** The Society of Light arc.

*** TheDragon: Manjoume, Saiou's first conversion and the strongest of Judai's friends.
*** TheBrute: Ojin, uses a Satellite deck meant to defeat the opponent in one turn.
*** The EvilGenius: Misawa, the strategic and analytical duelist, though he does not get a chance to show it under Saiou's leadership and he apparently wasn't brainwashed like the others.
*** The DarkChick: Asuka, even when brainwashed she retains loyalty to her former dorm and duels to defend the honor of its members.
*** SixthRangerTraitor: Edo, who is loyal to his manager, until he realizes that he is controlled by the aforementioned EldritchAbomination.

*** TheBrute: Demak, uses an Ape deck, imprisoned Luca's Signer Dragon. When he is defeated, he is replaced by Bommer, who duels more strategically, but is just as brutal and powerful. The two of them are also physically large.
** Yliaster arc:
*** BigBad: Z-One, the man behind everything.
*** TheDragon: Aporia, the fusion and original form of the three Yliaster Emperors.
*** The EvilGenius: Antinomy, the group's chief manipulator who has all the best gadgets and uses a high-tech deck.
*** TheBrute: Paradox, likely the most powerful next to Z-One (given that he can [[TimeMaster control time]]), focuses on bringing out powerful monsters as quickly as possible. His ace monster has 5000 base-ATK, as opposed to the other three with their 4000 base-ATK aces.
*** The DarkChick: [[spoiler:Sherry Leblanc. She stands out in that she is the only female, joined the group much later than the others (or would that be [[TimeyWimeyBall earlier]]?), and is unsure about Z-One's goal, having been coerced into helping]].
* ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'':

*** TheBrute: Girag and Alito, the most brawny Barian Emperors.
*** DarkChick: Merag, the only female member, and like Nasch, she did a FaceHeelTurn before becoming a Barian.
*** EvilGenius: Vector. Even though not the leader of the Seven Barian Emperors, he's the BigBad and TheHeavy of the entire series and betrays the Barians for his own EvilPlan.
*** GreaterScopeVillain: Don Thousand, the one who created the Seven Barian Emperors, and Vector tries to revive him.

* While their efforts are generally unconjoined and seperate from each other, the employees of [[Manga/ShugoChara Easters]] innerwards workings can be seen like this [[spoiler: until [[ManipulativeBastard Nikaidou]], of all people, makes a [[HeelFaceTurn heel - face]] within episode 23.]]

** BigBad: Kazumu, until Gozen's existence is revealed within episode 22, although Kazumu still displays more traits of the trope (Aside from the fact that Gozen, for most of the series, never shows any portion of his body [[spoiler: (Or his real voice.)]] towards any - one.) and commands the other operatives [[spoiler: and the fact that he's (Albeit probably unintentionally.) partially responsible for Gozen's current condition any - way.]]

** TheDragon: Kazumu towards Gozen, and perhaps Nikaidou towards Kazumu him - self (While not particularly loyal towards Kazumu, he seems the one most focused upon his "job", and is probably the most apparently "dedicated" towards it. [[spoiler: (Ironically, he is the first to heel - face.)]] He also has a personal vendetta towards all of the Guardians, and, within fact,[[spoiler: every being possible with a Heart's Egg: Jealousy due towards the loss of his own as a child, soon before it was about to hatch.)]]

** TheEvilGenius: While not exactly a genius, Nikaidou probably at first fits this role, at least more than the other workers: He devises each plan of his own to capture the Embryo, including, [[spoiler:rather than capturing the original Embryo, simply making a new one instead.]] Still has evil methods, though. He can also build fully operational combat robots, as well as the machinery he uses occassionally for his plans, some - thing which stems from [[spoiler: his child - hood dreams to be a robotics programmer.]] Later upon, Yukari probably takes more of this role, due towards her finding new ways and researching more technologies in order to amplify the corruption powers of Utau's voice. [[spoiler: And the fact that Yuu just heel - faced.]]

** TheDarkChick / TheBrute: Utau, who shares the chickish trait of being captured prisoner... Only towards Easter's whims, not the Guardians. This is because the sole reason she works for them is due towards probably - violent threats towards her mother and, more importantly, Ikuto. And when she does find the Embryo, the only reason she'll take it [[AntiVillain is the desire towards wishing towards her and Ikuto's freedom.]] She's also the greatest offensive power the corporation have, which confirms her for the latter role, although she usually doesn't take pleasure for it, thus halting her from Brute position. Ikuto would also count, seeing that his Black Lynx Character Transformation form is probably upon par with Utau's Lunatic Charm Character Transformation [[spoiler: (Although Dark Jewel may be another story, despite the time limit.)]] and that he is within partly the same situation, only with threats towards Utau and his mother [[spoiler: ([[BrotherSisterIncest The same one as Ikuto's.]])]] instead, but seeing as he's [[EnigmaticMinion less likely to obey the smaller details of his orders and presented as far less helpless than Utau...]]

** FriendlyEnemy / TokenGoodTeammate / EnigmaticMinion: Ikuto, towards the point of being a main love interest. He screws around with the workers' (Especially Kazumu's.) plans and helps Amu and the other Guardians whenever he can afford towards, and constantly acts at least uncommunicatively towards any of the employee's aside from Utau, [[spoiler: his sister.]] Hell, Yuu even spies on him at times to be safe. [[spoiler: Also becomes somewhat of a Brute when he gets [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Brainwashed and Crazy]] later upon.]]

* ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' - The Hakushuu Dinosaurs
** The BigBad & TheEvilGenius: Reiji "Marco" Maruko, ManipulativeBastard, Team Captain, quarterback and safety. He's also the one you can blame for the team's deliberately brutal style of play.
** CoDragons: [[TheJuggernaut Rikiya Gaou]] and [[PsychoSupporter Hiromi Kisiragi]], described as Hakushuu's Right Hand and Left Hand by Marco, Hiruma, and most commentators. Gaou breaks quarterbacks, runningbacks and linemen, while Kisiragi cripples recievers.
** TheBrute: Subverted. Marco clearly has former team ace [[DirtyCoward Tengu]] slotted for this role, due to his status as their best linebacker, but Tengu pissed off Gaou (which never ends well) and Marco was forced to use himself and Gaou to fill the gap in the defence.
** TheDarkChick: Team Manager Himuro "Maria" Maruko, a SugarAndIcePersonality turned EmotionlessGirl, courtesy of Marco's [[LoveMakesYouEvil interest]] in her. She's also the TokenGoodTeammate.

* ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' - The Pentagram
** The BigBadDuumvirate: Donald "Mr. Don" Oberman, both TheJuggernaut and a GeniusBruiser, who leads the team on skill and sheer force of personality & Clifford D. Louis, Hiruma's EvilCounterpart, and ManipulativeBastard and {{Chessmaster}} extraordinaire, who serves as the field leader, makes the plans, is the one team member who isn't afraid of Mr. Don, and also serves as TheEvilGenius.
** TheDragon: Patrick "Panther" Spencer, who doubles as the TokenGoodTeammate and serves as their main offensive power.
** TheBrute: Tatanka, perhaps the series crowning example of DumbMuscle. He's tall, strong, a superb reciever, and a total dunce who's attempts at learning other languages have screwed up his ability to speak English.
** TheDarkChick: Bud Walker, action movie star and wannabe cornerback. What exactly is he doing here?

* In the ''Anime/MaiHime'' manga, the Searrs Foundation has this.
** The BigBad: [[spoiler:Saeko Kuga]]
** TheDragon: Alyssa [[spoiler:Kuga]]
** TheEvilGenius: Yukariko
** TheBrute: Miyu
** TheDarkChick: Shiho.

* In the ''Manga/LinebarrelsOfIron'' anime, we have the [[NebulousEvilOrganization Katou Organization]].
** The BigBad: [[AffablyEvil Hisataka]] [[VisionaryVillain Kato]], leader of the organization, a smooth-talking NonActionGuy and a very capable {{Chessmaster}} in his own right. [[spoiler:Actually a WellIntentionedExtremist]].
** TheDragon: [[EnigmaticMinion Masaki]] [[TheStoic Sugawara]], Kato's right-hand man and the most high-ranked of the organization's captains, not to mention the most skilled pilot. [[spoiler:He's actually a DragonWithAnAgenda who works for the GreaterScopeVillain Central]].
** TheEvilGenius: [[MadBomber Riku Ousei]], a complete [[TheSociopath sociopath]] with a keen intellect and an obsession with imagination, who is always cooking up new schemes to prove the superiority of his mind, in his own twisted way.
** TheBrute: [[BloodKnight Takuro]] [[JerkAss Sawatari]], [[HuskyRussie Demitri]] [[FashionVictimVillain Magarov]] and [[PsychoElectro Soubi]] [[FallenHero Nakajima]] all share this role. None of them is particularly stupid, but they tend to take the direct approach to fighting.
** TheDarkChick: [[TheVamp Yurianne]] [[EvilRedhead Faithful]] and [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Jack]] [[WorthyOpponent Smith]], both of which have a noticeable difference from the others - Yurianne is the only woman in the group, while Jack is a human-sized Arma with free will and feelings.
* Tokyo Magika from ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' Kira Episode 2:
** BigBad: Nomura
** CoDragons: Miyo Takano, Okonogi & Teppei Houjou
