* In ''Franchise/DragonAge'', the Dwarven "Legion of the Dead" is exactly this. Dwarves, or even nondwarves, from any walk of life and any circumstance may join, including the worst criminals and Casteless, and upon joining a funeral is held for the new recruit and all their past sins are absolved. They are considered to "owe" the Dwarven people a death and usually set about earning it by going deep into the Deep Roads to fight the worst of the Darkspawn infestation there. In the ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOriginsAwakening'' expansion pack, there's a Legion of the Dead member whom you can recruit as a follower, ironically by saving her life after the rest of her squad gets wiped out.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', in a manner with the squads in multiplayer. They are ostensibly Systems Alliance units and operate under Alliance command, with most of their members being human soldiers and other military specialists, but they also include volunteers and mercenaries from a variety of other races, such as turians, asari, krogan, drell, and quarians. With the additional DLC packs, this lineup includes batarians, geth, vorcha, and volus.

** Which led to ANaziByAnyOtherName, since after WW2, possibly up to 35% of the Legion's members where ex-German military because they were readily available. Although contrary to some fictional portrayals, the French generally tried to screen out and arrest anyone wanted for war crimes even at the time.

** This had one ironic result. One Jewish soldier killed a guard who had been at a [[HellholePrison camp]] and [[VigilanteExecution shot him]]. Then he deserted and ran to Israel where he received a pardon for having deserted from the Israeli Navy. Which he did in order to join the Legion to track down the guard, whom he knew had joined the Legion.

* Many White Russians went here. Quite a few Jews during the Holocaust (including the future commander during the [[ArabIsraeliConflict '48 Siege of Jerusalem]]) and ironically several former Nazis. All running away from some political disturbance or other, sometimes as in the last two cases from opposite sides. For most of the Legion's history, it got recruits this way, from refugees fleeing to France.
