* Source material notwithstanding, the ending part of the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}: GauntsGhosts'' novel ''Necropolis'' sees Gaunt and his Ghosts fight non-Codex daemons known as Darkwatchers that could teleport.
* Some [[AristocratsAreEvil noble houses]] in ''{{Mistborn}}'' have enough [[FunctionalMagic allomancers]] to field entire strike teams of them. Though they're almost all [[MasterOfOneMagic Mistings]] rather than full Mistborn, they're still much more dangerous than ordinary humans would be in their place. [[EvilOverlord The Lord Ruler]] also keeps armies of Koloss (orc-like nonhumans which are superhumanly strong and durable) but rarely uses them because while they're incredibly effective in battle, they also have a tendency to go into uncontrollable killing rages, even against allies, which makes them a weapon of last resort.

* In ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', the player's only actual "superpower" that distinguishes them from the standard disposable [[RedShirt Redshirts]] is a regenerating energy shield and a useful melee attack. However, even the standard version of the alien enemy officers, known as Elites, have the same regenerating energy shield as the player, with the Brutes also being similar in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}''.

The alien enemy officers, known as Elites, have the same regenerating energy shield as well as similar health/durability compared to the player.
** The Spec Ops Elites have optional active camoflage, in addition to the ability to throw grenades. And the strongest of the Elites, the Ultras, have extremely strong shields and armor, recharge their shields much faster than others, usually have GunsAkimbo, and carry a plasma sword as a secondary weapon.
** Also the Ranger Elites, who have jetpacks, Jump Pack Brutes, and Brute Stalkers, who also have stealth camo.
** In ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', the higher-ranking Elites such as Ultras, Zealots, and Generals can use the same armor abilities (e.g. Armor Lock) as the player; the latter two bordering on BossInMookClothing.

* The terrorist organizations at MarvelUniverse sometimes do this to their men. Pym particle and Hulk-powered HYDRA mooks were part of Viper's latest world domination plot, alongside ComicBook/NormanOsborn. But they don't get to do much aside from thrashing jeeps and helicopters belonging to an US diplomatic mission sent to negotiate the release of Captain America, who had been taken hostage.

** ''Jedi Academy'' also featured ''elite'' superpowered mooks called Reborn Masters -- as the name indicates, the elite among the New Reborn, and easily about as powerful as real Jedi Masters in the game. There were only a handful and they would have counted as bosses if they weren't nameless and placed at only somewhat critical junctures. They had seemingly been designed to be as difficult to beat as possible, possessing every Force power at highest level except for those limited to the player, superior lightsaber skills, and AI that made the other enemies look like idiots -- you wouldn't catch a master trying to fry you with Force lightning while you were protected against it, nor would they let you jump on their heads Mario-style without retaliating, although at least they couldn't slice off three of your limbs in one go.

These guys are equipped with the same or similar powers as the heroes, but produced in large enough numbers that you can use them as elite infantry and field several at once, rather than (as with a QuirkyMiniBossSquad member) merely tossing one out as an end-of-level Boss encounter. This allows you to outnumber the heroes while simultaneously fighting them with their own tricks! [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong There's no way it can possibly fail]]! Unless, of course, that pesky Law Of ConservationOfNinjitsu pops up... and let's not even ''think'' about the inevitable drop in quality of these {{Evil Knockoff}}s due to [[SuperPrototype mass production]], or the effect it will have on their [[PowerDegeneration physical]] and [[ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil mental]] stability.

So the heroes are [[FoeTossingCharge mowing through]] your legions of {{Mooks}} like they were nothing. Even your [[GiantMook Giant Mooks]] and EliteMooks barely slow them down for more than a couple seconds. You see, the heroes have an edge that not even your best EliteMooks can hope to match...not only are they better fighters, they're also fighting on a whole different level than your minions. Maybe they're [[StarWars Jedi]] skilled in The Force, or [[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon they see the world in bullet-time]] and [[VideoGame/{{Crysis}} wear superpowered nanotech suits]]. Maybe they have a [[VideoGame/{{HalfLife}} gravity gun]], [[VideoGame/JustCause grappling hook pistol]], or some other special weapon your troops have no equivalent of. Perhaps your enemies are straight-up superheroes, or they could just be [[ActionSurvivor average guys]] who only win because your {{Mooks}} are [[EqualOpportunityEvil blind, deaf, mentally impaired or physically challenged]].
