Sometimes overlaps with PsychoRangers, if the squad members are also EvilCounterparts to the main characters. See also TerribleTrio (incompetent Quirky Miniboss Squad, althought may be made a threat with TeamRocketWins), GoldfishPoopGang (a sillier recurring enemy independent of the BigBad), and StandardEvilOrganizationSquad (a larger and more serious version). Contrast CoDragons for a situation where multiple characters split the Dragon role, but don't necessarily work together the way a QuirkyMinibossSquad would and are usually treated more seriously.

* QuirkyMiniBossSquad/WesternAnimation



[[folder: Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/CucumberQuest'' has the BLT trio, with emphasis on the "quirky" part.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': In the "Painted Black" arc, Grace's "brothers" Hedge, Vlad, and Guineas form a darker-than-usual version.
* The Linear Guild in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''. They're also {{Evil Counterpart}}s to the Order.
** Later on you have Tarquin's adventuring party, though they're much more powerful and more like a quirky boss squad.
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'': Reakk, Psyk, and Mosp are the Dimension of Pain's Quirky Miniboss Squad.
* The Dark Warriors from ''[[Webcomic/EightBitTheater 8-Bit Theater]]'' are a ''very'' Quirky Miniboss Squad (all of whom were actually minibosses at one point or another).
* ''Webcomic/{{Adventurers}}'' had [[TheDragon Argent]], [[PerkyFemaleMinion Mizuna]] and [[MusicalAssassin Dirlend]] working for BigBad Khrima. (The [[EnemyCivilWar competing]] BigBad, [[KnightOfCerebus Eternion]], had his own set, but due to the LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters involved the only one whose name I recall is [[TheGunslinger Cody]].)
* ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'': [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/030208 lampshaded here]]
* ''Webcomic/NoNeedForBushido'' has the Four Demons of Sorrow.
* The [[MarySue Sues]] and [[MartyStu Stus]] of ''Webcomic/DubiousCompany''. Their fights with the pirates are always hilarious as their quirks mostly poke fun at the CommonMarySueTraits, but are [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands nigh unstoppable]] because of them. This frustrates both the pirates and [[TheDragon Izor]].
** [[OfficerAndAGentleman Izor]] sees them as [[SuperPowerLottery spoiled]] [[BornWinner brats]] and would cast them to the gutter if they weren't so useful.
** The pirates are frustrated because no matter how hard they train or plan, they can't beat them. Especially [[TheBigGirl Tiren]], who can take down a Kraken with a hairpin, but [[WhyWontYouDie cannot]] beat the ValleyGirl Franchise/SailorMoon {{Expy}}.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has [[GangOfHats The Felt]], though most of them don't survive the intermission they appear in, [[EvilVsEvil and]] [[VillainProtagonist The Midnight Crew]], Depending on which iteration of them it is.

[[folder: Western Animation]]
* Boris and Natasha from ''RockyAndBullwinkle'' are the original examples, working under Fearless Leader.
* ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'': The Dark Hand devolved into this from regular mooks over the course of the series.
* Azula, Mai and Ty Lee (commonly called "[[FanNickname Ozai's Angels]]") of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Okay, [[TheDragon Azula]] [[PsychoElectro isn't at all "quirky"]], but [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Ty Lee]] makes up for it.
** Azula counts if you allow "sociopathy" as a quirk (it's certainly quirky in "[[BeachEpisode The Beach]]".)
* General Immortus, Madame Rouge and Monsieur Mallah (TheDragon) in the fifth season of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''.
* The second season of ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' goes through a grand total of three of these, starting off with the Knights of Vengeance, then the Knights of Destruction, and finally CHKYN (it's their initials).
* Demolishor and Cyclonus from ''TransformersArmada''. [[YesMan A dumb lug]] and a [[AxeCrazy psycho]].
** Funny, a dumb lug and a psycho sound like ThoseTwoBadGuys from ''Animated''.
*** After [[SendInTheClones building a small army of clones]], Starscream of ''TransformersAnimated'' is his own QuirkyMiniBossSquad.
** Sky-Byte's Predacons from ''Transformers: Robots in Disguise'', and, to a lesser extent, Scourge and the Decepticon Commandos.
** As well, there's the Decepticon Pretenders in ''TransformersSuperGodMasterforce'', and the Dinoforce in ''TransformersVictory''.
** And Snowcat, Demolishor, and Mirage in ''TransformersEnergon''.
** ''TransformersCybertron'' also has the group of Decepticons who stay loyal to Galvatron; Thundercracker, Ransack, Crumplezone, and Thunderblast. [[spoiler:However, during the final battle, when they realize Galvatron was never going to spare them either, they abandon him too. Thundercracker even ends up happily working with the Autobots on the Space Bridge Project after Galvatron's death, until the other three shanghai him into their 'New Decepticon Army'.]]
* Prime Evil's "Usual Gang of Idiots" from ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' has the Enforcers fill this role for the [[BigBad Big Man]], while the Sinister Six (sometimes the whole team, sometimes just one or two members) do the same for the [[TheChessmaster Master Planner]], aka [[spoiler: Doc Ock]]. Interestingly, the Enforcers are shown to report to their organization's [[TheDragon Dragon]], Hammerhead, while Electro, the Planner's [[TheDragon Dragon]], is merely the most powerful and loyal of the Six.
* ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'': Near the end of season two [[MadScientist Jack]] [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Spicer]] made "Team Spicer" comprised of himself, [[CatGirl Katnappe]], [[SmashMook Cyclops]], Vlad and [[FatBastard Tubbimura]]
* Each member of the Crime Syndicate in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueCrisisOnTwoEarths'' has their ''own'' Quirky Miniboss Squad - the "Made Men". Owlman has the Evil [[ComicBook/BatmanAndTheOutsiders Outsiders]], Superwoman has the Evil [[{{Shazam}} Marvel Family]], J'edd J'arkus has the Evil Detroit League, and so on.
* In ''[[TMNT2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fast Forward]]'', the turtles' four clones become this for Darius Dun almost immediately after their creation.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' has The Pack.
* ''XMenEvolution'' has the Brotherhood playing this role for Magneto and Mystique
* ''SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo'' features the Sun Riders. Granted, they ''are'' ex-actors (and therefore used to trying to impress crowds). And hey, at least they have the dignity to save their posing for ''after'' they win.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' AnAssKickingChristmas, the Delightful Children From Down the Lane have the [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Faculty Four]], who represent Substitute Teacher's Day to help their plot to Steal Christmas. Their members are Thesaurus Rex, a dinosaur made up of books, the Unintelligible Tutor, who's babbling incapacitates people, The Human Text, a flying humanoid made up of stacks of paper, and Mr. Fantastically Fit, a stretchy muscle man, led by Ms. Edna Ucation.
