His attempts to get the team to call them this also are met with mixed success.
* In ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' "Invasion" Oliver, Thea, Sara, Roy, and Diggle are trapped in a LotusEaterMachine. When they try to break out, the machine creates copies of Malcolm Merlyn / the Dark Archer, Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, Damien Darhk, a [[SuperSoldier Mirakuru soldier]], and several [[{{Mooks}} Ghosts]]. For bonus points, they each confront the villain they have a [[ArchEnemy personal grudge against]], and it is ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome glor]][[CatharsisFactor ious]]''.

* Played with in the ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' episode [[Recap/TheLegendOfKorraS4E8Remembrances Remembrances]]. In it, Varrick explains his idea for a new movie, where the four previous {{BigBad}}s, Zaheer, Vaatu, Amon and Evil Unalaq team up to defeat Bolin and take over the world. Varrick almost exactly mentions this trope by name, by suggesting this ensemble should be called the Legion of Darkness.

* Dr. Doofenshmirtz of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' attempts to invoke this by gathering the other evil scientists in the Tri-State area and form the League Of Villainous Evildoers Maniacally United For Frightening Investments in Naughtiness. Then one of the scientists points out that the acronym spells L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N.

* In 1998, [[Wrestling/VinceMcmahon Vince McMahon]] created his own legion of doom, Wrestling/TheCorporation, to contend with the likes of Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin, Wrestling/MickFoley, and Wrestling/DGenerationX. They became even more doomy when [[Wrestling/ShaneMcmahon Shane McMahon]] took over the Corporation and merged it with the Wrestling/MinistryOfDarkness to form the Corporate Ministry, while still answering to the "Higher Power" (which was revealed to be Vince [=McMahon=]).

* Attempted by Loki in the ''Acts of Vengeance'' crossover. It didn't work out well, most notably because a) [[WriterRevolt the writers were in open revolt]], and b) he neglected to consider the people he was trying to get to work together. In particular, putting ComicBook/{{Magneto}} (a Jewish Holocaust survivor who takes "never again" ''[[PayEvilUntoEvil very seriously]]'') and the ComicBook/RedSkull (an outspoken Nazi) in the same room was [[BuriedAlive a disaster waiting to happen, really]] ([[KickTheSonOfABitch at least from the Skull's perspective]] - most everyone else was rather impressed).
