* Harry Dresden of ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' names the [[TheManBehindTheMan shadowy force]] the Black Council so as to not call it this trope. He also calls it a [[Franchise/StarWars phantom menace]] at one time, but [[ShoutOut asks forgiveness for the phrasing]].

[[IThoughtItMeant Has nothing to do with]] [[UsefulNotes/NationalHockeyLeague Eric Lindros, John LeClair, or Mikael Renberg]] or the TagTeam, Wrestling/TheRoadWarriors (well, actually it does, see below).

* ''ComicBook/FirstStrike'' has several villains of the Franchise/HasbroComicUniverse coming together, with the only major absentees being any Cybertronians, since they're the villains' intended targets, and any villains from ROM, because the BigBad has a very personal grudge against them. Naturally, they don't get on very well, and some of them are even expecting a sudden but inevitable betrayal.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ActionMan'', Dr. X runs a villainous team to further his schemes. In fact, it's ''literally called'' "The Council Of Doom".

** The Cult of Mallus in Season 3 is built up to be another one, with its membership including Damien Darkh (again), his [[DaddysLittleVillain daughter Nora]], [[KillerGorilla Gorilla Grodd]] and [[CainAndAbel Kuasa]]. By the SeasonFinale, however, most have been removed from play for one reason of another, so Mallus gathers several oneshot historical villains from over the course of the season -- Blackbeard, Julius Caesar, and Freydis -- and their respective followers to serve as his new army.

%%* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' does this several times.


Added DiffLines:

* While ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' has plenty of smaller [[VillainTeamUp villain alliances]] throughout its run, it doesn't really hit this trope until the back half of Season 4, when Jerome Valesca forms a team composed of himself, Jervis Tetch, Scarecrow, Firefly, and Mr. Freeze, as well as a reluctant Penguin and Butch Gilzean/Solomon Grundy, in order to carry out a plan to drive all of Gotham mad. He refers to the group as the "Legion of Horribles".

Added DiffLines:

* Another DC one was the Injustice League, formed by Lex Luthor, Joker, and Cheetah, as a protection racket for supervillains. One of their first plans lead to them kidnapping and humiliating pretty much every member of the Justice League save for Superman and Black Lightning, who work together to free the rest and take them down. The bickering supervillains issue came into play, albeit in a darker means; Doctor Light was one of the villains recruited, and while Luthor and Joker had no issue, Cheetah point-blank refused to work with him because he's a serial rapist, and later when things went to shit she went out of her way to kill him during the chaos; [[EvenEvilHasStandards she's a monster, but she has ''some'' limits]].
