* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'': Nobodies bar the Dusks and Creepers are not very common, but they are stronger and much more unpredictable than Heartless. The game's last world is filled almost exclusively with them.

* In [[Wrestling/NobuhikoTakada Generalissimo Takada]]'s monster army of Wrestling/FightingOperaHUSTLE, the Flying Vampires fill this role. Tougher to beat than most minions but still minions for more important monsters and army members.[[/folder]] [[folder:Roleplay]] * ''Roleplay/DestroyTheGodmodder'': Happens mainly in large armies, such as the Grox invasion in the tvtropes session, or the paradox event before that.

* ''[[VideoGame/TearsToTiara2 Tears to Tiara 2]]'' has the emperor's praetorian guard legions, both in game and in story. If not careful they can take out a tank character in two or three hits.

[[folder:Webcomics]] * The seven Disaster Masters from ''Webcomic/CucumberQuest'' who serve directly under the [[BigBad Nightmare Knight]] are each stationed in one of the seven kingdoms of Dreamside, causing havoc for the heroes. Each one is more stronger than the one before, and their powers are corruptions of the theme of the kingdom they're based in, from the first, a giant monstrous [[GiantSquid squid]] [[DumbMuscle Splashmaster]] of the Ripple Kingdom, to the seventh, the [[KnightOfCerebus eldtrich and ominous]] [[AIIsACrapShoot Glitchmaster]] of the Space Kingdom.

* The ''Madness Combat'' series features the Agents, starting in the fourth one, where he manages to stall the protagonist... for a few extra seconds. He gets his revenge, however, later in the episode, when he's resurrected as a zombie, and manages to shoot the protagonist. In the fifth through seventh ones, however, they become as common place as regular mooks, until ''another'' elite group takes their place as as Elite Mooks. The three appear in the sixth and are quickly killed, and in the seventh, they're highly commonplace. * Likewise, the ''Bunnykill'' series features two ninja rabbits as Elite Mooks in the first installment (and are actually challenging), bunny 'agents' in the second (the first two are challenging, but then about ten are cut down easily in a display of KatanasAreJustBetter), and the dark-grey (mercenary) and brown (techie) rabbits in the third installment (the techs provided extra challenge, the mercs not so much).

** The ridiculously powerful missiles were actually a typo. Missile Frigates carry anti-fighter missiles, and anti-capital missiles. The former are swarm missiles, which break into 8 smaller warheads when launched. The latter are intended to much larger, much longer ranged, but single fire missiles. Terran and ATF versions however were accidentally designated as Swarm Missiles. This was corrected in ''Videogane/{{X}} X3 Albion Prelude''

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': Among the regular titans are "Abnormal Titans", who display radically different behavior. The decimation of Eren's squad at the Battle of Trost begins with an abnormal who jumps out from behind a belltower. During the 57th Scouting Expedition, Sasha nearly gets run down by an abnormal who crawls on all fours like a spider.

* Throughout the MLP FanFic ''FanFic/HarmonyTheory,'' Max Cash, one of the two [[BigBadEnsemble Big Bads]], had been mostly relying on hired-and occasionally brainwashed-thugs to do his bidding, sans his {{Dragon}} and personnel body guard. But when its time to raid the estate of a politician with a lot of security, he brings out a small army of top dollar mercenaries [[spoiler: Who are brainwashed into being completely loyal and willing to die for him]] with him. [[spoiler: Unfortunately for him, a now fully grown Spike, makes sure they never get to show their true ability.]]

*** As proof of their effectiveness, they are the only droids to not only survive an encounter with the Jedi, but send ''them running'' in their first appearance.

Added DiffLines:
*** The Feral Gauls also have different varieties, that could be seen as this: Roamers, Reavers, and Glowing Ones. The Roamers essentially being former soldiers, who happened to be wearing their Armour when Gaulified, the Reavers being more bulkier versions with higher speed, stronger attacks, and more health, while the Glowing Ones, are Gauls who soaked up so much radiation, their practically a walking nuclear battery, that can use radiation based attacks, while healing its fellow Gauls.

* The [[BossInMooksClothing Big Daddies]] in ''Franchise/BioShock'', which were split into the [[ThisIsADrill drill-wielding]], melee-only Bouncers, and Rosies, who deployed proximity mines and used rivet guns. There were also [[SuperpoweredMooks Houdini Splicers]] who [[TeleportSpam teleported around]] and shot [[PlayingWithFire fire]] or [[AnIcePerson ice]], as well as Spider Splicers that avoided attacks by dancing on the ceiling. Later in the games, elite versions of Big Daddies can be found; they are stronger, faster, and tougher than regular Big Daddies.

* VideoGame/{{Borderlands}} gives Elite Mooks the label of "Badass" in front of their enemy type. Your first NewGamePlus with a character has these enemies labelled Bad Mutha, a second time labels them as "Superbad". In the sequel, they're generally known as "Super Badass" or "Ultimate Super Badass".

* The second-to-last level in ''VideoGame/SplinterCell: Chaos Theory'' ended with Sam up against Shetland's personal bodyguards, about 8 elite Displace Mercenaries equipped with facemasks and thermal goggles. These used to be the only enemies in the entire series who could see you in the dark (some enemies in the series, i.e. the Georgian Special Forces from the final mission in ''Splinter Cell'', wear night-vision goggles, but still couldn't see you in the dark unless you move or are very close). Then came ''Conviction'' and [[spoiler: the enemy Splinter Cells]], who had sonar goggles that let them see Sam's Last Known Position through darkness and cover. ''Blacklist'' only ran with it.

* Wardens from ''ThePowderMageTrilogy'' serve as this for the Kez army. They are ordinary people warped with sorcery into nigh- invulnerable juggernauts of destruction which can take on entire squads of infantry and are designed specifically to combat the titular Powder Mages. They are however not very intelligent and can still be taken down by a lucky shot to the eye or just by being swarmed and stabbed to death. The later books also give us black wardens, who were instead created from Powder Mages and possess much of their abilities, making them even deadlier.

* ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMonstrosity'': Establishes the Terrorcons as one of the more powerful Decepticon fighting forces, able to take on Megatron, albeit [[WorfHadTheFlu weakened]]. In ComicBook/TransformersWindblade three of them go against Windblade's posse and come out victorious, Rippersnapper takes down Slug (a veteran Dinobot, which was one of the most powerful Autobot groups), Sinnertwin takes down both Blurr (another Autobot veteran) and Waspinator, and Cuthroat keeps Tankor (veteran Decepticon) and Windblade (above average fencer) on their toes, even with an impaled wing he's still fighting.
