** The idea of the Rogues Gallery teaming up ''en masse'' actually started out this way in the [[Comicbook/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]} series; the first time more than two of them teamed up was in a one-off story that had them all manipulated into doing so by another baddie, Gorilla Grodd.

* The "Grand Guignol" storyline fucntions as one for the Jack Knight incarnation of ''Comicbook/Starman'', bringing together Nash/The Mist II, Dr. Phosphorus, Crusher from the Bliss Carnival, the Bodines (from a "Times Past" story), plus [[spoiler: the rejuvenated Rag Doll, the mysterious Culp]], and, in flashbacks, the minor villains Pip and the Prarie Witch. [[spoiler: And to top it all ff, the original Mist turns up alive, and Neron is the GreaterScopeVillain]].

* This is how the 1990s ''Power of Comicbook/Shazam'' series handled the then-Captain Marvel's LegiuonOFdoom, the Monster Society of Evil; rather than teaming up, it was a number of unconnected villains all being manipulated separately by [[spoiler: Mr. Mind]].
* The 200th issue CrisisCrossover storyline in ''Comicbook/GreenLantern'' in the mid-1980s has most of the book's recurring villains pressed into service by Guy Gardner as part of an EnemyMine attack on the Anti-Monitor, but Comicbook/Sinestro is also there to pursue his own agenda.

* ''Film/Batman1966'' functions as one for the TV series, since it teams up the four most popular villains: the Joker, the Catwoman,t he Penguin, and the Riddler.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/PersonOfInterest'' has several owing to its ConspiracyThriller elements, but the first time this trope was used was in the first season finale, "Firewall," which includes recurring villains HR, Donnelly's F.B.I. team, and [[spoiler: Root]].

** And between that one and Bane's debut, ''Detective Comics'' #526 had new threat Killer Croc clash with not only Batman but also a rival group of villains including Clayface, Mister Freeze, Black Spider, the Penguin, Catman, the Cavalier, the Riddler, the Scarecrow, the Signalman the Spook, the Getaway Genius, the mad Hatter, Two-Face, Captain Stingaree, and Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Oh, and of course [[spoiler: the Joker is there to play both sides against each other for laughs.]]
** ''Batman'' #400 may be the MostTriumphantExample of this trope: Ra's Al Ghul springs literally every single villain from Arkham and Gotham Penitentiary, and even though a good two thirds of them leave partway into the story, around twenty of them stick around and team up to carry out his plan.

** ''Where Were You on the Night Batman was Killed?'' where several members of Batman's rogues gallery (ComicBook/{{Catwoman}}, the Riddler, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and, inexplicably, LexLuthor) claim to have murdered Batman and place themselves on 'trial' before a jury of their peers (The Mad Hatter, Poison Ivy, the Scarecrow, Mr Freeze, the Spook, and Signalman) with Two-Face as the prosecutor and Ra's al Ghul as the judge. Most of the rest of the rogues gallery shows up to watch.
