* As the name would imply, the Legion of Doom are featured as the main villains of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueDoom''.

* Even ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' manages to pull this off, by way of [[spoiler:Kabuto's Edo Tensei, resurrecting ''many'' foes that either Naruto faced himself, or are enemies of the collected Shinobi villages as a whole. Worse, some of the line-up included some ''friends and family'' to the heroes!]]

* Naturally, absurdly common in comic books. There was even a short-lived Creator/{{Marvel|Comics}} series, ''Super-Villain Team-Up''. However it was really a minor example as it mostly came down to Doctor Doom and [[Comicbook/SubMariner Namor]], though the last couple of issues were about ComicBook/RedSkull and the Hate Monger.

* Another one from DC was the shortlived ''Secret Society of Super-Villains'', in which a collection of old school villains form a sort of anti-Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica and fight the newly-arrived {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} and company. In one memorable scene, Gorilla Grodd has a punchout with a giant club wielding member of the ''New Gods'', and defeats him with the aid of a classic wrestling ploy, the {{heel}}ish [[ISurrenderSuckers mock surrender]]. The Society even had their own series.

** The most recent iteration actually pitted a team lead by Lex Luthor against a Society/Crime Syndicate team lead by Deathstroke, where Batman (who had already partnered with Catwoman) was caught up in the mix. The Bat and the Cat work with Lex, who offers Deathstroke enough money to betray his team, leading to a Gang formed of Lex Luthor, Sinestro, Black Adam, Deathstroke, Captain Cold and Black Manta, who all work ''scarily'' well together. Made even funnier when Batman actually thought he could enforce his no-kill policy.

* Another Franchise/{{Batman}} example. In an issue of a [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] Batman comic SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and Penguin teamed up and were so good with their combined resources that Batman was powerless to stop them. He won only after they had captured him and he turned them against each other by stroking their egos to the point that they got into a competition and then an argument over who was contributing more to their partnership.

* Media adaptations of the Comicbook/{{X-Men}} have an annoying habit of grouping most X-Villains as members of the Brotherhood of (Evil) Mutants with ComicBook/{{Magneto}} as the leader, regardless of whether or not said villain ever had anything to do with the group in the comics (such as Sabretooth, Emma Frost, and the Juggernaut, who's not even a mutant), or if they'd ever play second string to ''anyone'' (Mystique, who led her own version of the team and has never worked with Magneto). Bonus points if Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are still with the Brotherhood, even though they had a HeelFaceTurn rather early in the regular comics and are more closely associated with the Avengers than the X-Men these days.
** Funnily enough, Mystique and Sabretooth, the ones most likely to be on Magneto's side in these adaptations despite almost never being so in the (mainstream) comics, are still associated with ''another'' evil ComicBook/{{X-Men}} team- [[MadScientist Mister Sinister]]'s Marauders, who are a lot less picky about who to team up with. Though he [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder probably won't be in any hurry to rehire Mystique anytime soon.]]

* A particularly enjoyable miniseries example came from Marvel a few years ago: ComicBook/{{MODOK}}'s [[{{Parody}} 11]]. MODOK hires a group of supervillains to help him steal a MacGuffin. 3/4 of the team ends up being traitors, moles and sellouts. In the end, [[spoiler: it was all just a [[GambitRoulette ridiculously circuitous plot]] to get revenge on his ex-girlfriend.]]
* ''TheFlash'' has The Rogues, who started out as a VillainTeamUp in UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks, but after discovering how well they worked together decided to keep working together. These days it's rare to see one of the Rogues commit a crime without some of the others around.

* In ''TopTen'', it's established that what would be supervillain teams anywhere else are essentially street gangs in Neopolis, where ''everybody'' is super. There's an ongoing turf war between the Fabulous Five and the League of Evil.
* As part of his plans during ''ComicBook/DarkReign'', ComicBook/NormanOsborn set up a "Cabal" consisting of himself, [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Emma Frost]], [[Comicbook/SubMariner Namor]], Doctor Doom, ComicBook/TheHood, and Loki.

This army would later be resurrected in the third movie, ''Final Countdown'', under the movie's BigBad.

The team is made up of himself, [[TheBrute Frances Noche]], [[BrownNote Angar the Screamer]], [[EvilGenius Wendell Levi]], and [[FemmeFatalons Karla Faye Gideon]].

** ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' had the "And Then There Were-" two-parters, which featured Vilgax teaming up with Eon, and then forming a team of evil alternate Bens from various parallel universes in order to conquer a reality where Ben never received the Omnitrix.
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' featured this thrice: the two versions of the Injustice Gang in the episodes "Fury" and "Injustice For All", and the Secret Society in the episode "Secret Society" (naturally, after the above comic). The sequel series, ''Justice League Unlimited'', had another such group, albeit ''much'' larger and better organized, the focus of its third-season arc; this group was unnamed, but was variously called the Legion of Doom and the Secret Society by fans. (Lex does refer to it as a "society" at one point.) The entire third season was basically a homage to the aforementioned ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'', complete with [[spoiler:{{ComicBook/Darkseid}} showing up as the TrueFinalBoss to replace them.]]
** The creators have admitted that they considered the massive villain group in JLU to be the Legion of Doom (complete with "Darth Vader head base in a swamp"), and generally referred to the group as such when discussing it, [[ExecutiveMeddling but had been explicitly told by DC that they could NOT use the Legion of Doom term.]] This is why the group is never actually named in the show, and why Luthor's allusion to the group implies it's related to the prior Secret Society. Note that Grodd corrects Luthor and implies the group ISN'T just a larger Secret Society -- but then fails to provide an alternate term.

* Used (And made fun of) in the Third Season Premiere Show of ''WesternAnimation/DuckDodgers'', where nearly every minor one-or-two-episode villain was brought together (Sometimes from the dead) to form the Legion of Duck Doom, as the primary antagonists, Mars, were currently at peace with Earth. (Though by the end of the episode, the Legion is defeated, and war breaks out again.)

* The Council of Doom was the collective name of ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost'''s sworn enemies: Brak, Zorak, Moltar, Black Widow, Creature King, and Metallus.
** It should be noted that the Council of Doom appeared over a decade before the TropeNamer.

* Spoofed briefly in the season 15 episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' "Fraudcast News," where Mr. Burns tells Smithers to "Assemble the League of Evil", a seemingly multi-ethnic team of villains (a samurai warlord, a Nazi SS officer, and an Arab Sheikh, along with a cowboy and a scientist). They were only identifiable by their clothing, as Burns had kept them stored away in a compartment in his office, and they had long since suffocated and died. As Mr. Smithers observed, "[[ForgotToFeedTheMonster even monsters need to breathe.]]"
