* Somewhat lampshaded during Marvel's Acts Of Vengeance event, in which Loki assembles an evil team supreme consisting of SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom (Romani), ComicBook/{{Magneto}} (Jewish), the Mandarin (Chinese), the Kingpin, the Wizard, and the ComicBook/RedSkull (a Nazi). (He tried to recruit Namor too, which would have added an Atlantean to the group had Namor accepted, but he did not.) It ''really'' didn't work out. Entirely apart from the clash of egos, none of them could stand the Skull, and vice-versa. When you put the most evil Nazi in fiction in the same team as [[SwissArmySuperpower the most powerful]] and [[HeWhoFightsMonsters pissed off Holocaust survivor]] in history, you are really pushing the limits of this trope. To the surprise of nobody, the event ended with Magneto [[KickTheSonOfABitch locking the Skull in an underground bunker with no light and limited water]], to [[AndIMustScream die painfully of thirst and starvation]] with just his sins for company. The two men had never met, but Magneto hated him anyway (with ''very'' good reason; nobody else liked hm either). When his minions broke him out, the first thing he did was [[TitleDrop swear vengeance on the mutant.]]

* Many of the evil organisations in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', to the point that the racist organisations like the Scarlet Crusade or the Grimtotem are the ''exception''. Criminal organisations such as the Defias Brotherhood, the Venture Co. or the Bloodsail pirates employ members from the Alliance (mostly humans) and the Horde (orcs, undeads...) as well as non-aligned races (ogres, gnolls) as mercenaries, while cults like the Shadow Council, the Cult of the Damned, the Wyrmcult or the Twilight's Hammer accept anybody fanatic/hungry for power/nihilist or stupid enough to join them. This can lead to some FridgeLogic when overwhelmingly good races like the [[AlwaysLawfulGood Draenei]] show up as members of the Twilight's Hammer.

* The Royal Guard in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has been shown to be exclusively male. Cue the BadFuture scenarios where both King Sombra ''and'' Nightmare Moon are shown having unisex armies (albeit [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed]] in the former's case). Princess Celestia's a lot of good things, but a progressive stance on the military she ain't.

* Many of the dark guilds in ''Manga/FairyTail'' operate under this position, since by their very existence they're criminals and they need all the manpower possible to stay alive should the legal guilds receive requests from clients or the Magic Council to take them down. The [[TheEmpire Alvarez Empire]] in the neighboring country takes the cake, however, since it came into existence when ''all'' the light and dark guilds across the country joined together to overthrow the government and establish a new one, and its Emperor's PraetorianGuard is made up of not just people from the Empire, but several that came from the country of Ishgar (where the Fairy Tail guild and most of the events of the story take place) they intend to invade, as well as [[RoboticReveal sentient machines]], [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons created by one of the most infamous mages in history]], [[spoiler:and a dragon]]. It helps that their leader chose them specifically for their [[SuperpowerLottery raw Magical power]].

** The [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Thalmor]] and the [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized Forsworn]], while genocidally racist, appear to have pretty liberal views on gender. The Thalmor ambassador to Skyrim is a woman, and you'll encounter plenty of female Thalmor soldiers and wizards in the wild. The Forsworn also have female warriors and mages that are no less [[DemonicSpiders murderous]] than their male allies.

The Thalmor ambassador to Skyrim is a woman, and you'll encounter plenty of female Thalmor soldiers and wizards in the wild. They also apparently have no qualms with employing other races, as the ambassador has a Wood Elf as a servant and a Khajiit as a cook, and a Thalmor assassin [[spoiler: you end up killing for the aforementioned Wood Elf]] is also a Khajiit. The Forsworn also have female warriors and mages that are no less [[DemonicSpiders murderous]] than their male allies.

* In ''TabletopGame/SirenTheDowning'', the [[ApocalypseCult Current of Acheron]] is noted to be very lax in who they recruit, accepting any Siren as long as they are willing to embrace their StrawNihilist ideology. They do it mostly out of PragmaticVillainy: because few people are insane enough to want the destruction of the world, [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating they are hated by pretty much everyone]] and [[EvilVersusOblivion even other Abyssal Currents want them dead]], so they can't afford to be picky about who they recruit.
