** In the G1 cartoon episode ''Auto Berserk'', Megatron actually makes a rare pop culture reference by perfectly quoting ''ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid'', screaming out in the middle of battle "I've got MORONS on my team!".

* Another rare heroic example: In ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', Scrooge [=McDuck=] is preparing to retrieve his vast fortune from the Marinaras Trench. He sees [[MeaningfulName Doofus]], Launchpad, and Gyro Gearloose, the crew that will help him, trip each other up and fall all over the place. And so, Scrooge can't help but exclaim in exasperation, [[HereWeGoAgain "MORONS! I've got]] [[ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid MORONS on my team]]!!"

* In the "Recall" trailer for ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', Reaper gives this expression when one of the {{Mooks}} he brought along to deal with Winston flies through the window of the room he's in and crashes into a table. The kicker? He's able to somehow do this expression while wearing ''a completely static skull-shaped mask!''

* In ''FanFic/ShinjiAndWarhammer40K'' Kaworu bemoans his lack of competent henchmen. The trope is then deconstructed as he admits that he's not surrounded by ''idiots'', he's surrounded by the ''mediocre. SEELE and NERV recruited the best henchmen while the Earth Cradle was essentially a dumping ground for the leftovers. As a result he got people who are less skilled and less ''sane'' than canon Evangelion characters.

* In ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'', Gaea Worshipper's guild probably wouldn't have even existed if its members hdn't been a bunch of idiots. They want to assisst Gaea, who is playing in an enemy faction, because they are convinced that she's a DoubleAgent loyal to their own side. In reality, the events that made them come up with the DoubleAgent scenario are actually a NotMeThisTime FrameUp in which that their own faction's top guild; this isn't even kept as a secret at least in the comic version of the story. An episode of the webseries also hints that Gaea's ManipulativeBastard tendencies have an EveryoneKnewAlready status to most players and that the members of Gaea Worshipper's guild are the only ones acting as if whatever they see her do should be kept secret. To top things off, they are also quite incompetent as helpers.
