*** The group leading the aforementioned third attempt is referred to as a "ragtag team" by Sokka, due to it being made up of various allies that Team Avatar had met previously rather than a proper army.

* ''Webcomic/CurseQuest'': Not much is known for how the main group met, but it is clear that their goals are quite different. Walrus clearly just wants to get his curse removed, and Avalon seems to have ulterior motives selecting his curse quest for unclear reasons. Mogarth seemingly joins the group because he was looking for a job and his personality is drastically different from Walrus and Avalon. The original version of the comic had all six of the adventurers constantly bickering as they progressed in the dungeon. One can only assume what it will be like in the reboot.

* The crew of the Ghost in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' is a rebel pilot with family issues, an ex-padawan whose Master died before she could finish his training, a former bounty hunter, a Lasat with a bad case of survivor's guilt, an orphaned 15-year-old they picked up when he tried stealing from them and a droid which likes to electrocute friend and foe all the same.

* You get these every so often in ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'', but for the longest time the premier group of quirky but remarkably influential mercenaries was Snord's Irregulars. As the name suggests, Cranston Snord picked some rather strange warriors to form his unit in the early 3000s, with a shared common quirk of collecting--Snord himself collected valuable antiques of the Star League era. Other collections belonging to members of his unit include antique art, weapons, sports memorabilia, the records of Creator/ElvisPresley, butterflies, and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick harvested/preserved human body parts]]. There's also a bit of a joke that Snord collects weirdos as well. Snord likes to claim he collects skilled Mechwarriors, and while his troops are indeed quite skilled, Snord somehow managed to gather together serious {{Bunny Ears Lawyer}}s in the process.

* ''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 people the party meets commenting on such an "eclectic group".

* While familias in ''TabletopGame/{{Nobilis}}'' are rarely ''ragtag'' - it would absolutely ''ruin'' their social standing - they can be a pretty weird bunch, because their bosses, the Imperators, are driven by stranger drives than "making teamwork easy" (these are, after all, people who find the purpose of sneezing incredibly confusing). Various editions have included or strongly hinted at characters who are living strains of music, dragons, sea captains, ten-year-old girls who can beat up the US Marine Corps, descendants of TheFairFolk and animated suits of clothes without human occupants, all of them effectively [[RealityWarper reality-warping demigods]], and there's nothing that prevents all of these from being on the same team. That's ''without'' counting the possible inclusion of [[HumanoidAbomination un-people]] from the void outside the universe who have turned their back on destroying everything, who, in third edition, are ''also'' playable.
* The main playable character options in the Glass-Maker's Dragon campaign for ''TabletopGame/ChuubosMarvelousWishGrantingEngine'' are an AmnesiacGod, his best friend who was wished into existence, an angsty mad scientist who may be an unwilling enemy of existence, a near-emotionless teenage Russian super-soldier, the daughter of the goddess of the Sun, the well-intentioned successor to the king of evil, the amnesiac remnants of a witch who sought to end reality, and [[TricksterArchetype Rinley]], who defies rational explanation. Major characters in planned future campaigns include the spirit of the AmnesiacGod's marvelous wish-granting engine (who manifests as either a steampunk [[Literature/TheMagicSchoolBus Miss Frizzle]] or a huge luchador who is the best friend's AmbiguouslyGay older brother), a nine-year-old elf and would-be noir detective with a magical cloak, a LargeHam who wishes to unmake reality for its own good, and the most popular kid in School, who has serious trouble with the concept of not being the most important person in the world.

** ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' gets in on the action too. The core team starts with a hyper-aggressive teenager who happens to be [[MessianicArchetype the next Messiah]], a SpoiledSweet and extremely beautiful BadassNormal, a pair of dirt-poor orphans who are involved in professional bending, [[MixAndMatchCritters an enormous]] [[BearsAreBadNews polar bear dog]], and [[TeamPet an adorable red panda ferret creature]]. Counting their more reliable allies (who vary from potent authority figures, to street thieves), you get something of a mess, which only gets messier as the stakes get higher in the later seasons and even former enemies start putting their weight behind the Avatar.

*** Though in later seasons they start to [[TookALevelInBadass pick up several levels in BadAss]], and have managed to pull off some pretty impressive feats in recent years. As of season 11, [[spoiler: they're rumored considered to some of the greatest warriors in the galaxy]].... Yeah, [[SelfDeprecation they couldn't believe it either]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', Jasper isn't exactly impressed by what's left of the Crystal Gem rebel forces. To quote her, Pearl is "defective", Garnet's a "shameful display", Amethyst is an "over-cooked runt", and Steven is "just sick". In her opinion they're far cry from the formidable rebel army led by Rose Quartz that Jasper fought against thousands of years ago.
