* ''Manga/TheBigO'': Roger Smith has the distinction of being Paradigm City's top negotiator and the chosen pilot of the titular Megaduex. Joining him are R. Dorothy, who's a combat capable android (and Roger's live-in robo-maid), and [[BattleButler his butler]], Norma. And apparently, the three of them are all the protection the city needs from Alex Rosewater and [[spoiler: "The Union"]].

* Levi's handpicked elite squad in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' is this. Both Eld and Gunther have high titan kills, both in teams and solo. Petra, despite being smallest and one of the younger members, has 48 kills as a team, meaning she has taken part in the most titan killings in the squad, barring Levi. Oluo may act obnoxious and arrogant but he has the highest solo kills (39) out of the squad. And this is not mentioning [[WorldsStrongestMan Levi himself]].

* The [[Literature/MichaelVey Electroclan]] is definitely this. With the sole exception of Jack, they are all [[ImprobableAge 15-year-olds]] who have destroyed billions in [[EvilInc Elgen]] buildings, research facilities, and transportation. They are all implied to have [[PriceOnTheirHead prices on their heads]] ranging into the millions and they are considered a legitimate threat to the aforementioned corporation which has entire countries under its control.

* ''Literature/TheCrush'' revolves around Dragon Saffron, a paramilitary squad of soldiers with ElementalPowers who are regarded as some of the best in their business. They're also willing to risk their lives and careers just to make good on promises to each other.

->''"I think that, because of this lack of a central hero, "Comicbook/ElEternauta" is one of my greatest works. The real hero of "El Eternauta" is a collective hero, a human group. Thus it reflects, even if it wasn't the original idea, my greatest belief: the only legitimate hero is the hero 'in a group', never the individual hero, the lone hero."''

* Kaiju example from ''FanFic/TheBridge'' with the various factions walking the line between this and BadassArmy. Special mention goes to Gigan, Megalon, and Irys, who manage to tag team against, sufficiently fight off, and wound the nearly unstoppable Grand King Ghidorah.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'''s [[SuperSoldier Spartan-IIs]]. Members see their fellow Spartans as their only family (they were recruited at the age of 6 and trained together ever since). Possible slight subversion in that they are slightly more numerous than the norm - there were over thirty of them at the program's height.
** They become a more typical Badass Crew after most of them die towards the end of the Human-Covenant War, reducing their numbers to a small group of five.

* Force Recon Team Sidewinder in the ''Literature/CutAndRun'' series. They later unofficially adopt [[SixthRanger Special Agent Zane Garrett]] into their crew as well.
** The last book has an even larger crew when Zane and Ty's FBI coworkers and Sidewinder join forces (plus a couple of ex-military hitmen).

* Most, if not all, [[SuperTeam Super teams]] are badass crews at some level. Any lone superhero is usually capable to hold his own in a fight, so a group with several of them fighting toguether is serious stuff.
* ComicBook/{{Asterix}} and the gauls of his village are all super-powerful thanks to the magic potion of the druid Getafix. A single gaul can take down a whole Roman military base by himself, so if they are angry enough to go ''all at once'', then the Romans are really boned.

* The titular rangers of Series/MightyMorphinMechaRangers consist of Roger of ''Anime/TheBigO'', Bit Cloud of Zoids, Van Fanelle of Escaflowne, Heero Yuy of Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing, Shinji Bloody Friggin Akari of Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion, and Simon the Digger, from Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann, plus a massive (and ever growing) cast of supporting characters. It is exactly as insane as it sounds, and every single member of the team is an undeniable badass extraordinaire. Yes, that includes Shinji. And He EARNS it, with bloody, sweat, tears, blood, broken bones, blood, tears, blood...

* The VF-84 and VF-103 ''Jolly Rogers'' fighter squadrons. They are one of the most recognized squadrons in the world, with their sinister skull & crossbones emblem and bold paint schemes. They made the [[CoolPlane F-14 Tomcat]] famous, and was the inspiration for the iconic fighter in ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross''/season one of ''Anime/{{Robotech}}.
