** 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.

That's together (up until he got all of them bar himself killed, anyway).

** At one point [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy General Tarquin]] [[spoiler:aka, Elan and Nale's father]], despite being initially unaware of the composition or existence of the Order of the Stick, deduces that it is a team almost immediately upon meeting all the individual members, largely because he recognizes that when a bunch of weirdly competent but oddly diverse individuals show up out of nowhere, he can assume they're a team until it's proven otherwise.

* Any time a fanfic in the ''Franchise/{{Shadowchasers}}'' franchise is set around a team, they fit. Probably the ''most'' ragtag group is in ''Fanfic/ShadowchasersBackwater''; Tsubasa and Rave are the only ones that are truly human, and all of them are unusual even when compared to Shadowkind either races that are incredibly rare on Earth (at least in this sort of situation) or unique beings entirely. [[note]]We have a vampire, a reformed succubus, a martial artist golem, a fox spirit, an odd spirit generated from an old NES, and a practitioner of the dark arts who comes from a race of wizards.[[/note]]

* In one of the 2008 Franchise/{{Bionicle}} web serials, Federation of Fear, the Order of Mata Nui send out a BoxedCrook [[WeHaveReserves suicide team]] to bring back a SealedEvilInACan with a grudge to fight the [[BigBad Makuta]]. The team consists of two mutated ex-warlords/ex-prisoners, a disgraced scientist/ruler whose name has become a byword for "failure," a {{Manipulative B|astard}}itch whose name has become a byword of "treachery," a KnifeNut BountyHunter, a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} who is actually half of another being, and an Order member stuck in a HeelFaceRevolvingDoor.

* 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 troop are indeed quite skilled, Snord somehow managed to get gather together serious {{Bunny Ears Lawyer}}s in the process.

** The Planet Express crew in general; the main delivery crew is a goofball from the 20th century (Now known as 'The Stupid Ages'), a selfish robot who spends his time drinking booze and making wisecracks, and a social outcast cyclops who tries to be professional, maybe a little too much. The rest of the company is a century-and-a-half-old mad scientist, a Jamaican paper-pusher who likes to limbo and fill out forms, a ditzy Chinese girl from Mars, and a lobster alien who has neither social graces nor an accurate idea of human anatomy, despite being the company doctor for humans.
