* The local [[UsefulNotes/{{Cricket}} cricket]] [=XI=], the "Woolfonts Combined CC [=XI=]," in the ''Literature/VillageTales'' novels. It can "give trouble to most County sides and a few Test sides" … in that it is captained by a former captain of, in order, the Eton, Oxford Authentics, and Oxford Blues 1st [=XIs=], has in its order his old vice-captain when he's in the District, contains a current member of the OUCC 1st [=XI=] during the Long Vac., and, although his knees are shot nowadays, is coached and twelfth-manned by a former England Test cricketer. Neighboring villages really don't expect to win matches against WCCC, any more.
** A boring, mundane example? Yes … until it's realized that the Duke of Taunton, WCCC Captain, uses ''precisely the same trope and tactic'' to get the Rector he wants and the right mix of curates with him (including a retired cavalry major and a retired Cambridge don and expert on church restoration, both of whom came to the Church as a second career); the team to restore the heritage railway; the archaeological team whose findings will prevent any commercial development in the District; the non-native residents to whom he chooses to sell houses (he, after all, ''[[IOwnThisTown owning]]'' the District); the Free School and its Staff; the community brewery; and indeed the creation by such means of a cadre of local Great and Good – the cricketer (brought in on the excuse of coaching the cricket club) and his wife, the Rector, the Deputy Headmaster, the gastro-pub hotelier (drafted as a County councillor), and the retired Premier Leaguer (co-opted as a Justice of the Peace) – who will be there if he dies tomorrow. All to ensure that no unworthy or inexperienced successor can change his vision of preserving the place.

* The TropeNamer is the 1992 American men's UsefulNotes/{{Olympic|Games}} basketball team. [[note]]Specifically a 1991 ''Sports Illustrated'' article about the team by Jack [=McCallum=]. However, while [=McCallum=] used the word "dream" a couple of times in his article, he says he did not come up with the cover blurb and doesn't know which editor at ''SI'' was responsible.[[/note]] The Americans had always been dominant in basketball at the Olympics, sending college basketball players to comply with amateur requirements. (Not all countries were so scrupulous on this point.) But a bronze medal in 1988 was embarrassing enough that for the first time [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation NBA]] players ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Christian Laettner from Duke University]]) were selected for the 1992 team after the International Basketball Federation officially opened the games to pros. It was almost certainly the greatest collection of talent ever assembled on one basketball team--and quite possibly any sport--with at least three players (Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and UsefulNotes/MichaelJordan) often considered the best in their positions to ever play. Eleven of the twelve team members are in the Basketball Hall of Fame (as is the team itself), and the twelfth--Laettner--is considered one of the greatest college players of all time and went on to have a successful NBA career himself. Coach Chuck Daly remarked that it was like "[[ElvisPresley Elvis]] and Music/TheBeatles put together"; Bird joked that if they lost they "probably wouldn't be allowed back in the country." They won by an average of almost 44 points; the closest game saw them win by 32 against Croatia (who expressed gratitude to win the Silver medal [[ForegoneConclusion before the game was even played]]).

* The 1954 Hungarian UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball team at the World Cup that year was the closest we'll get to a dream team in international soccer. While other nations have had amazing teams, like Brazil and West Germany, the so-called "Golden Team" literally changed the way the game was played, especially in England, where a historic 6-3 thrashing at football's home launched a national rethinking that lead to their World Cup victory in 1966. The Mighty Magyars, led by the legendary Ferenc Puskas, a candidate for the greatest player of all time, are also notable as being the best team to never win a World Cup, coming up short in the final hurdle against emerging power West Germany. The team soon split up after the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, but the impact they brought to the sport with their overwhelming dominance set ripples through the football world.

** The Brazil teams of the 60's, featuring Pele, another candidate for the greatest player of all time (and usually named as such), and the phenomenally talented and tragically flawed Garrincha, and of the early 80's, featuring the likes of cultured captain and midfielder Socrates (who later became a dentist) and Zico, an attacking midfielder of great flair widely considered to be one of the best of all time. The difference was, however, the former team won three World Cups (1958, 1962, 1970), their streak only interrupted by England's '66 win, while the latter were knocked out in the Quarter-Finals of the 1982 World Cup by eventual champions Italy.

** More recently, the Barcelona team of the late Oughts to, arguably, the present day, starting out with the trademark 'tiki-taka' style of passing triangles, around opposition team members in a fashion that was, essentially, the legendary style of Total Football pioneered by the above mentioned Hungary team, in which every player can play every position and thereby shift interchangeably, confusing the hell out of the opposition. This worked like a charm and usually made whoever they were playing against look like complete idiots as this team, which revolved around playmakers Xavi and Andres Iniesta and was spearheaded by Lionel Messi (a serious candidate for the greatest player of all time - he's won 5 Ballon d'Or's, awarded annually to the best player in the world, and as of February 2016, he's only 28). It is no coincidence that at roughly the same time, the Spanish national team won the 2008 European Championship, the 2010 World Cup and the 2012 European Championship. It is also probably no coincidence that the 2014 World Cup, played when the powers of that squad were failing, [[EpicFail led to Spain going out at the Group Stage.]] Despite this hiccup, a change of style and the addition of Brazilian wunderkind Neymar and electric and controversial Uruguayan Luis Suarez, the two of whom formed a triad with Lionel Messi guaranteed to make any defender in the world wish that they'd brought the brown pants and Barcelona returned to nigh invincible type.

* ProStars was another also-ran kid's TV show with a similar premise. In this show, Bo Jackson, Michael Jordan, and Wayne Gretzky teamed up to form a sports-themed super-hero group helping kids and saving the environment from cheesy villains. Each of the athletes was a superhero, each of them using gimmicks based on their respective sports, with Bo covering football and baseball. Live-action sequences with all three athletes talking to kids about morality were also included. Picture Michael Jordan and company as the protagonists of a show like ''WesternAnimation/{{Captain Planet|and the Planeteers}}'' and you'll have a good idea how cheesy it is.

* The ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica was the ''original'' dream team of superheroes.
** Actually, by design, they more or less ''weren't'', at least at first. DC established an in-house rule that any character who had (or later got) his own monthly title could no longer appear as an active member of the JSA (they could be "Honorary Members", though). Which made sense even in an in-universe way; a character with a monthly title was presumably busy with whatever adventures were appearing in that title. Superman and Batman thus ''started off'' as "Honorary Members," and Flash and Green Lantern (the Golden Age ones, Jay Garrick and Alan Scott) left shortly after the series began when they got their own titles as well. This rule was dropped after a few years, but originally it was thought of as a way to spotlight lesser-known characters and see if they were popular enough with readers to support a title of their own, instead of a "dream team" of the best of the best.
