** ''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]].

* During the Buster Call on Enies Lobby in ''Manga/OnePiece'', a horde of Captain-ranked Marines attack the Straw Hat pirates. Since AuthorityEqualsAsskicking, each one has their own super powers, ranging from being a giant with an axe to the ability to rust metal with a touch. All are dispatched quickly despite the diversity of power.

** After the TimeSkip, we learn that Kaido, one of the Four Emperors is building an army empowered with the fake Devil Fruits Caesar Clown produces; It's already at the ''500'' mark. [[spoiler: From what we've seen on the flashback on Zou, these fake Fruits are technically Zoan-types, but turn the ''hands'' into ''animal heads!'']]

* In ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'', the Space Pirates that copied your beam weapon technology could be considered this. Especially since, even though they had weapons basically equivalent to yours, but eliminating the slow rate of fire you had for most of them.

* The Metal Coolers in ''Manga/DragonBall Z'' : The Return of Cooler. Unusually for this trope, a single Metal Cooler is much stronger than any of the protagonists, dealing out curb stomp battles to a Super Namek and two Super Saiyans. In fact, depending on when this movie is supposed to be set, a single Metal Cooler is on par with the first or third forms of [[BigBad Cell.]]

* The unit of engineered psychic soldiers encountered close to the end of ''SecondSight''. They can use almost every single power that the protagonist has earned over the course of the game- [[spoiler: largely because the stem cells used in their creation were extracted from both the Zener Children and the aformentioned protagonist, John Vattic.]] Interestingly enough, after you kill every last one of them, the BigBad reveals that [[spoiler: not only were the soldiers just one unit of several hundred spread across the United States, but the reason Vattic met them in the first place was to measure the strength of his powers, to justify using more of his cells in the next generation.]]
