* In ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryI'' and ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryII'' you encounter this. In QFG 1, if you wander into the goblin camp, first one will attack you, the next time you wander in, 2 will attack you, and so on, and so on. They all stand in line maces at the ready until the goblin currently fighting you dies. The brigands at the end of the game also do this if you rush front the gate rather than sneaking in. In QFG 2, you encounter Jackalmen and bandits in the desert as random encounters, in groups of 2-5 which also fight in this style. In QFG 4, you fight flocks of bat-spiders who charge in one at a time and if you're faced with two necrotaurs or chernovy wizards, the second won't attack until you're done with the first. (since the 4rd game's battle system doesn't support battles with two monsters at the same time)

* In Creator/JackieChan's ''Film/WhoAmI?'', as the two accountants [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower turn out to be ridiculously sturdy and accomplished martial artists.]] At first they attack one at a time, timing each other before switching around, but when Jackie starts winning they fight two on one and whup some serious ass. Jackie is only saved because he notices they have very flashy clothing and are wearing earrings, so he targets those instead, using their clothes to bind or blind them, and tearing their piercings off. Even still, it looks like it's going to turn out bad for the hero, as while Jackie beats on the Korean accountant, the DangerouslyGenreSavvy lanky British contortionist begins removing the clothing he sees Jackie use on his partner.

* Not that P-dog and The Get Along Gang though of themselves as "mooks" but only the former had any sort of status in Wrestling/RingOfHonor, making at least the other six he brought along this and despite out numbering Moose seven to one at ''Supercard Of Honor X'' they decided to take him on one at a time. This actually had better results than when they all bum rushed him at once, [[WouldntHitAGirl as it forced Moose to consider the women in the group.]][[/folder]]

* Averted in the anime version of ''Manga/SoulEater'', where the DangerouslyGenreSavvy Asura takes out Death the Kid while he's charging up for an attack.

* '''UnwantedAssistance.''' However, sometimes very rarely, a coordinated attack just isn't possible, as a notable number of factors can just ruin attempts at a combination attack, or FriendlyFire will occur depending on the situation.
* '''[[StopHelpingMe The Mooks will get in each others' way]]'''. RealLife militaries make soldiers spend countless hours training together so they can function as a unit and help each other out, instead of running around getting in each others' way. If the Mooks don't know what each others' skills and personalities are, they may end up doing more damage to ''each other'' than the hero. Try to imagine a bunch of {{Leeroy Jenkins}}es all charging the same target at once, without even trying to coordinate their efforts...suffice to say it's unlikely to end well.

Added DiffLines:

* Near the climax of ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', Batman has to get past at least a dozen heavily-armed mooks to rescue [[spoiler: Martha Kent.]] He starts by exploding through the floor to get them off their feet, allowing him to pick most of them off one-by-one, but still ends up taking on four of them at once near the end. He wins anyway.

* ''Film/{{Gymkata}}'': A particularly {{egregious}} example. In the pommel horse fight scene, all the mooks look somewhat menacing with their pitchforks and such, but they're not even making an effort to ''appear'' as if they're aching to jump Cabot if not for his combat skills. Most are quite literally [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPGUZxOCRcs just standing still]] until its their turn.
