* There is at least one of these in every single ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' game, but possibly the most standout example would have to be at the beginning of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance]]'' [[spoiler:and after part 2 of ''Radiant Dawn'']]: the Greil Mercenaries, and their eventual growth under [[BadAss Ike]] into a BadassArmy. Eventually the band of six or seven mercenaries grows into a ''50-character strong army'' led by a more mature, wiser and altogether completely awesome FourStarBadass Ike, complete with Ragnell, his WaveMotionSword.

* ''Manga/OutlawStar'' had 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 Badass FiveManBand consisting of BadassLongcoat wearing Gene Starwind, his partner Jim Hawking, RobotGirl Melfina, CatGirl Aisha [=ClanClan=], 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 [[EverythingsBetterWithSamurai assassin]] Twilight Suzuka.arrogant but he has the highest solo kills (39) out of the squad. And this is not mentioning [[WorldsStrongestMan Levi himself]].
** The [[{{ChildSoldier}} 104th trainee corps]] is gradually being set up as the heroic crew that will ultimately save the day. However to get there they must [[{{AnyoneCanDie}} 1:Survive]] and [[{{BreakTheCutie}} 2:Overcome horrific trauma, loss and betrayal.]]
* Jacuzzi and Nice's gang from ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' is a group of {{Street Urchin}}s, who still manage to fend off TheMafia.
* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': The Band of the Hawk was a mercenary company of unrelated {{Badass}} individuals as tightly knit as a family, united by their admiration of their charismatic leader Griffith. Everyone gets their turn to have a moment of awesome, and they are loyal to each other. Eventually, Guts' new party grows to the same level of membership, capability, and closeness, except for a few hangers-on like Magnifico.



* The Anime/{{Hellsing}} Organization. 'nuff said.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'''s Akatsuki consists of elite and pure badass-to-the-bone characters like Itachi Uchiha, Kisame, Orochimaru, Pein, Kakuzu, Sasori etc, all having BadassLongcoat. Also Team 8, Team Gai, and especially Team 10 all remain a close-knit family. Asuma even mentions this, in a flashback, when he gives all the members of his team earrings as a symbol of sticking together. And ''every single member'' of the Konoha 11 has their awesome moments (however short lived and/or superfluous it may be), even Ino, and especially Sakura, Shikamaru, and [[AllLovingHero Naruto]] himself.

* Nearly every guild in ''Manga/FairyTail''. Taken UpToEleven for Team Fairy Tail on the final day of [[TournamentArc Grand Magic Games]]! [[spoiler: Even cowering Sting into submission by simply giving him the DeathGlare!]]
* All versions of the [[Manga/GetterRobo Getter Team]] are like this, but special mention goes to the Go team. Go, Sho/Kei
and [[AllLovingHero Naruto]] himself.Gai get along MUCH better than Ryoma, Hayato and Musashi/Benkei.



* Team Dai-Gurren from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. There's nothing else that needs to be said.

* Several Familia in ''LightNovel/IsItWrongToTryToPickUpGirlsInADungeon'':
** Members of the Loki Familia currently listed in the character sheet are all badasses. Take an example: why did Aiz happened to pass by a Mind Down-affected Bell in Book 3/Episode 5? Turns out she, Riveria, Tiona, Tione, and Fynn finished a 46-hour crawl at the 37th floor. ''For fun''. They are at least Level 3 (Lefiya), average at Level 5, and maxes at Level 6. To note, due to the universe's AntiGrinding system, most adventurers are Level 1.
** While we were only told the strength of the Freya Familia is on par with Loki's, we know that Ottar, the single adventurer with the highest CharacterLevel, is in this familia.

** The Wolkenritter (all of whom are members of Riot Force 6) were originally a BadassCrew in their backstory. But by the time of their introduction in ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs A's]]'', they've graduated to being a full-on BadassFamily.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'':
** Ala Rubra, which had at least two members who are essentially ''invincible'' and a number of other members who aren't quite invincible, but still incredibly BadAss.
** Negi's group, Ala Alba, is well on it's way to this, as almost all the girls are drifting in an ActionGirl direction. If one chooses to focus on the primary combatants (Negi, Kotaro, Setsuna, Kaede, and Asuna) it essentially ''is'' a Badass Crew with a bunch of people working the backup support positions.
* The crew of the [[TankGoodness Murakumo]] in ''Manga/MaidenRose'' is composed of a MilitaryMaverick ColonelBadass, his three closest childhood friends, and a CoolOldGuy medic who is also the [[CombatMedic gunner]] of said tank.

* In the WWI novel of the ''Literature/AnnoDracula'' series, The Bloody Red Baron, the Baron himself leads a squad of German fliers who are all vampires and aces, much like the real life Jagdgeschwader 1 the Baron led. Except not only are they vampires (making them excellent night pilots) to match up to the Allies slightly better squad of aces (which includes Expies of The Shadow, Biggles, and Captain Midnight, along with real life British ace Albert Ball) the squad is modified by science and elder vampire blood into giant bat fliers wearing machine-gun rigs.
