-->'''Sterling Archer''': Why would you wanna work for those Ivy League white-shoe D.C. pricks? That's not who we are! We're the outsiders, the scrappy underdogs!

* ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'': [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/050916 Lampshaded]]Lampshaded]]. The heroic lineup outside that scenario is impressively odd. The core team has Mega Man (who is an idiot), Proto Man (who is the resident MetaGuy and has a bit of a weapon obsession), Roll (who has some fairly impressive anger issues), George (a superhero from another dimension), Bass (who is technically supposed to be a bad guy, but is too stupid to remember this), Nate (a reprogrammed Yellow Demon goo-bot enemy who communicates through signs), Chadling (another Demon, this time from another dimension, who bonded with the main characters over a shared ice cream addiction), Mike (a former villainous minion and very incompetent cyborg ninja), Rush (a sarcastic robot dog with self-esteem issues), Dr Light (a scientific genius and a short-tempered, arrogant drunk), the author of the comic (when he can be bothered to show up), and Ran (a Communist robot who, after his introduction, dies at least a dozen times in nearly every storyline). The list of temporary members is even weirder and includes several villains (reformed and otherwise), more than a few characters from other dimensions, time travellers, [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs at least one version of a villain from another dimension, multiple sets of time-travellers from alternate dimensions]], and Bob, the eventual BigBad, who for the trifecta is a time-travelling villain from another dimension.

* In ''WebComic/DevilsDust'', the RagtagBunchOfMisfits include an impatient KidHero and a BigGuy who has to work more than he would like to. It seems clear that these characters aren't of best of terms with each other, but they have to work together for survival.

** Technically the titular characters' core group counts too. There's a miniature [[TheWonka Wonka]], his InexplicablyAwesome stepbrother, the local bully, the nerd said bully picks on, a bunch of InexplicablyAwesome Girl Scouts, a weirdo who stalks TheWonka and his stepbrother and a bunch of random people who walk in and out.



* Let's see. A super fast hedgehog, an innocent two tailed fox, tomboyish princess squirrel/chipmunk hybrid, a sweet half robotized rabbit, a cowedly coyote, a walrus who's good with tools, a clumsy but good natured dragon and robotized hedgehog? Yep. ''SonicSatAm'' is onto it too.

** The last faction of the 40k setting you'd suspect to have these kinds of teams would be the Space Marines, but even they have them, in the form of the Deathwatch and their kill teams. Officially an elite fighting force of the Inquisition dedicated to combatting xenos in all their forms, the Deathwatch recruits experienced Marines from loyal chapters. In reality, many Marines forwarded to the Deathwatch are misfits and relatively undiciplined for Space Marines, and so are sent away from the Chapter. When a Kill Team of Deathwatch Marines is formed, the team often grow a longlasting brotherhood of misfits, who learn how to deal with their differences to perform a single goal.

* The employees at Maraczek's Parfumerie in ''Theatre/SheLovesMe'' could qualify.

** This is also Xykon's justification for having a 'back-up lair'; "You never know, you could be just relaxing in your den on a lazy Sunday afternoon, reading the paper, when suddenly BAM! A band of unlikely heroes put aside their personal differences and evicts you from your own house.

** For a while, Warsmith Honsou - an oddity himself, because his gene-seed is a mixture of the Iron Warriors and their worst enemies - went around with a personal retinue consisting of a thuggish BloodKnight, a CombatSadomasochist who Honsou recruited by driving bone shards through his lungs, a renegade Raven Guard, and a horrific abomination produced from welding science and black magic together. That's just his immediate circle of what probably passes for friends among the Iron Warriors; his army consisted of basically everyone he could either convince or force to come with him, ranging from {{Space Pirate}}s to cyborg war engines.

[[folder: Podcast ]]
* ''Podcast/CriticalHit'' is an actual play DungeonsAndDragons 4 edition campaign that follows the adventuring party which consists of some rather unusual individuals, as per proud TabletopGames tradition. A [[DumbMuscle big]] and fierce-looking 3/4 orc with a giant axe who is [[HiddenDepths more cunning]] than his obsession with [[BigEater funnelcakes]] would lead one to believe. An [[{{Adorkable}} socially awkward]] GadgeteerGenius with a robotic arm who, due to his player's [[BornUnlucky abysmal luck]] with dice rolls, tend to be disaster-prone. A haughty and [[NobleBigot respectfully racist]] young [[OurElvesAreBetter Eladrin]] [[SquishyWizard wizard]] [[AgentPeacock obsessed over his hair]]. An [[SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan unassuming young man]] prone to the bursts of wild magic and [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent growing hair and claws]] during combat who has [[MysteriousPast no idea]] what you are talking about. And that's before some even more odd characters joined in the later seasons.
The party is regarded as a RagtagBunchOfMisfits InUniverse as well, with various peple the party meets commenting on such an "eclectic group".
