* Similar rule changes allowed NHL players to compete at the Winter Olympics. Since the NHL has far more international players than the NBA, this results in an entire tournament full of Dream Teams.[[note]]The perception that the NHL is far more international than the NBA is inaccurate in terms of numbers, though more accurate with respect to star players. In recent years, the percentage of NBA players born outside the US has hovered around 25%, and several of those players have been Canadians. The NHL player pool is slightly more than half Canadian and a shade over 20% American, with essentially all the others European. That being said, the NHL's non-North American player pool is far more concentrated in a few countries than that of the NBA. Almost all of the NHL's European stars come from Russia, Sweden, Finland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia. On the other hand, the NBA's non-North American player pool has far more diverse origins, with many not even hailing from Europe.[[/note]]

* While Team Kimba of the WhateleyUniverse ''is'' a Dream Team, most of the school believes this trope is in play because Phase is a teen billionaire who as a Goodkind would pull together a dream team as his personal backup. He just happens to have one of the best mages in the world, one of the best flying bricks available, one of the best (if not ''the'' best) flying blaster, one of the best martial artists anywhere, plus the Handmaid of the Tao and the CrazyAwesome Generator.

* The above team may have met their match with the 2012 Olympic team, which consists of many modern-day NBA All-Stars, including [=LeBron=] James, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony and Andre Iguodala.
* Similar rule changes allowed NHL players to compete at the Winter Olympics. Since the NHL has far more international players than the NBA, this results in an entire tournament full of Dream Teams.
* 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 Puskás, 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.

** Nothing except VideoGame/BlueDragon (directed by Sakaguchi, music by Uematsu and with Toriyama again helming the writing). Except that this time it was independent of Square- Sakaguchi and Uematsu have left to form their own studios by then. VideoGame/LostOdyssey was also done by Sakaguchi and Uematsu with Toriyama absent.

** ''GO Chrono Stone'' features a dream team made up of historical figures that was envisioned by [[spoiler:Endou Daisuke]] as the ultimate team. This leads the team to [[spoiler:travel through time to gather the power of these memnbers. The first of which is UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga.]]
* ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' was made with this trope in mind.
** Which was [[FollowTheLeader probably inspired]] by the video game TropeCodifier for this trope, ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', which unites every major character in the {{Nintendo}} stable, a bunch of minor ones, and a few famous [[GuestFighter guest fighters]] to boot.

* The Arc Stars, if their name wasn't an indication, is the best team in ''VideoGame/ArcStyleBaseball3D''. They have the absolute best stats in every field (batting, running, pitching, fielding). The team is made of some of the most important characters from [[Creator/ArcSystemWorks the company]].

* ''Manga/OnePiece'': [[TheHero Luffy]], [[spoiler:[[VillainousHarlequin Buggy]], [[DirtyCoward Mr.3]], [[AgentPeacock Mr.2 Bon Clay]], [[CreepyCrossdresser Emporio Ivankov]], [[Film/EdwardScissorhands Inazuma]], [[SharkMan Jinbe]], ''[[MagnificentBastard Crocodile]]'', and [[PsychoForHire Mr.1]]]] teaming up is definitely squee-material.
** The name of the chapter? '''The Strongest Team is Formed - Shake Impel Down to it's Core!'''

** ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' brings us Riot Force 6, which has such a ridiculously large portion of the firepower at the disposal of the Time-Space Administrative Bureau that they have to be placed under limiters before being allowed to operate together.

* Some of the best people from Enix hired themselves out to Square to make ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', along with Creator/AkiraToriyama, and actually used the name "Dream Team" for themselves in the DevelopersRoom.''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' was also made by the Dream Team, but without Toriyama. Sadly, nothing similar has happened since the two companies merged, because most of the core of the Dream Team have moved on to start their own companies.
