* 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.

And that's not taking into consideration the Avengers and the X-Men.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' crew certainly qualifies. Roy is pretty competent in his own right, but his band consists of a dwarf who is convinced that trees are evil, a childish bard who is completely useless in battle until he [[TookALevelInBadass takes a prestige class]] that depends on ''puns'' to be effective, a greedy rogue who constantly steals from the rest of the party, a megalomaniac elf wizard with an [[AmbiguousGender unknown gender]], and a bloodthirsty halfling who defines HeroicComedicSociopath. Their {{evil counterpart}}s aren't any better, either...
