* About halfway through ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'', Nanba Heavy Industries, who until this point have been selling their [[MechaMook Guardians]] to the highest bidder, unveils their own war-ready Hard Guardians, which are green, have twin machine gun hands and are powerful enough to give the heroes a hard time (at the power level they were at when they were introduced).

* During one episode of ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' [[BigBad Dr. Drakken]] discovers how worthless his Mooks are so he sends [[TheDragon Shego]] to steal strength-enhancing rings that transforms the wearer into peak condition. They didn't become any better so they were defeated quite easily by Kim (and still proved to be much more reliable than the Elite Mooks by herself...).

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'':
** Due to the template system that easily allows you to add additional features and abilities to a monster, it's fairly easy to make various types of elite mooks by selecting a monster and adding a few. The most common is the Advanced template that increases all ability scores by 4 and adds 2 natural armor to the AC, but there are dozens of different templates to choose from.
** Class levels are another popular way to advance monsters. Add enough and even a CR 1/4 foe can become an elite mook against level 20 players.

** The Elite Praetorian Guards of Snoke in ''Film/TheLastJedi''. Clearly based on The Royal Guards from the original and prequel trilogy, [[spoiler: except they are actually trained to deal with force users and give Rey and Kylo run for their money. One of them even held their own and manages to get a couple hits in, while fighting Rey ''one-on-one'', while another comes surprisingly close to killing Kylo.]]

* In ''Literature/LoneWolf'', the [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Giaks]] are the lowly mooks of the Darklords, while the Drakkarim, black-armored warriors wearing [[RageHelm death masks]], are the elite.

* In HarryPotter, not that the Death Eaters in general aren't a force to be reckoned with, but every once in awhile we meet one who proves to be more dangerous to the heroes and takes more to defeat. Examples include Antonin Dolohov, Thorfinn Rowle, and Bellatrix Lestrange (though she's more of a MookLieutenant).

They also carry improved versions of the Mook’s laser[[note]]it actually does more damage than the lasers of a PACT Cruiser, a ''capital ship''[[/note]] and submachinegun as well as missile launchers and a [[LaserBlade beam saber]] for melee combat with other [[AMechByAnyOtherName Ryders]].

* ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' had the very infamous Artificial Chaos. Enemies found in the later stages of the Ark levels, they are robotic versions of Chaos, the god of destruction. [[GoneHorriblyRight They may actually be more effective at destroying players than the original]], with tentacles striking you with blinding speed, and frightening accuracy, and their only weak spot is protected somewhat by eyebeams, or in mech cases, their aquatic bodies blocking homing missiles. You can punch them, but otherwise, you have a split second before they damage you. Variants for Sonic can split apart and explode, making it difficult to homing attack the weakspot. Unlike most elite mooks, they thankfully die in one hit like any other, but they are regarded as the ultimate DemonicSpiders of the Sonic Adventure franchise for a reason. The ''extremely rare'' Vulcan Fighters are Elite Mooks for G.U.N. They hover and do rapid fire gunshots unlike any other enemy, and are actually really difficult to homing attack without getting hurt. Only Tails and Shadow can very rarely encounter them in Mission Street or Radical Highway, depending if certain Jets pass by.

** The SortingAlgorithmOfEvil is justly used here, as well. The more and more "dangerous" the Straw Hats become, the more and more stronger marines they're gonna send out. When before, fighting a captain or commander could be the Big Bad of an arc, they're now just Elite Mooks for Luffy and the crew... except Smoker, who's more of a BossInMookClothing. Throughout his time as a captain and a commodore, he's still handing Luffy his butt solely from the [[MadeofAir benefits]] of his [[ElementalPowers Logia]] [[SuperSmoke powers]].

* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer Generals'' has the USA faction comprised entirely of these. The basic infantry, air and tank units are the US Army {{Ranger}} (the only infantry that can clear houses) [[GlassCannon F-22 Raptors]] and [=M1A2=] Abrams (called the [[AKA47 Crusader]] in the game), which are all superior, but more expensive than their nearest counterparts.
** The main ''Franchise/CommandAndConquer'' games had the NOD Black Hand as one of these, being tough, disciplined and equipped with flamethrowers, while the GDI has Zone Troopers soldiers in [[PoweredArmor Power Armor]].

* The Coop Quests in ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' feature enemies that you encounter in other story quests as typical "weak mobs". In this mode, not only do they have increased health, attack, and defense, they also have more skills and abilities to make the battle harder. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as the Coop Quests are made for multi-party battles, and it would be difficult for a beginner to fight these mooks alone.
