It's also entirely possible to have ''two'' Groups in the world. Often, they will be fighting a war in the shadows, this will be the basis for an {{Arc}} (story or myth), typically with one fighting behind the scenes to protect the world, and the other secretly trying to destroy or corrupt it. The Group may be several decades old (for example, formed around WorldWarII or the UsefulNotes/ColdWar), several hundred years old (for example, dating from around the time of the [[{{Steampunk}} Industrial Revolution]] and the [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution American]] and [[UsefulNotes/TheFrenchRevolution French Revolutions]]), several thousand years old (originating in AncientRome, AncientGreece, or AncientEgypt), as old as human civilization itself (as soon as one cavemen invented fire, two others got together on the other side of the cave and whispered to eachother that they had better keep an eye on this, and thus The Group was born), or [[TimeAbyss older than time itself]] (humans may serve The Group, but some very definitely ''[[EldritchAbomination non-humans]]'' founded, and control, it).

* ''SentinelsOfTheMultiverse'' has the organized crime group The Organization, run by the archvillain simply known as The Chairman. In a game that has you fighting mad scientists, killer robots, alien warlords and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking little girls]], he's one of the hardest enemies.

* Compared to The Second City Saints ("honorable" wrestlers who watched each others backs), The Prophecy (destroy Wrestling/RingOfHonor and [[InTheirOwnImage remake it in the image]] of Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels), Special K (do as many drugs and get as many other people hooked on them as possible), The Christopher Street Connection (get the tag team titles on Mace and Buff E, and be really gay while doing it), "The Group" stood out not only for their simplistic name but also their simplistic purpose, [[OnlyInItForTheMoney to take ROH's money]]. Whether or not they were worse than anyone else is a matter of debate, except for The Prophecy, who proved EvilierThanThou and forced The Group to disband after it took two of its members.[[/folder]]

If there's a {{Masquerade}} going on in your world, The Group is, ''de rigueur'', the first ones in and the last ones out to deal with anything related to it. If it gets [[BrokenMasquerade broken]], that's on them. Even if The Group is evil, which they may well be, they may often try to cover up TheMasquerade in an attempt to utilize whatever it is for their own ends, and thus do the world some good by keeping it ignorant and safe. Whether it is [[FunctionalMagic mystical, supernatural, or horrific beings, creatures, phenomena]] or {{MacGuffin}}s, [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum things of alien origin]], [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual superhumans and related paraphernalia]], [[AppliedPhlebotinum examples of advanced technology]], [[TimeTravel time travelers and the difficulties they create]], [[MonsterOfTheWeek various types of monsters, demons]], or whatever other GreenRocks or {{Weirdness Magnet}}s may be around in a world, you can be assured The Group will be there to either [[TheHunter hunt and destroy them]], try to [[ManipulativeBastard manipulate and use them]], or [[TheWatcher simply watch and contain them]]. Oh, and it should go without saying that if anyone is in charge of The Group, yes, it will be an OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness.

* Parodied by the Agency from the SciFiChannel's series ''Series/TheInvisibleMan''. It's a secret government agency that [[OddlySmallOrganization consists of about five (visible on-screen) people]], and because of this is prone to being transferred around between various departments of the US Government, as well as suffering from budget cuts. About the only thing they have going for them is that the titular invisible man works for them.

* The Group from ''Film/{{Munich}}'' and ''Sword of Gideon'', an all-pervasive criminal organisation whose basic role is that of TheFixer. What they do is pay ordinary people a lot more money to do their job for an illegal purpose. Got a body in a hotel room that needs to be disposed of? The hotel staff will carry it out in a cleaning trolley, then pass it on to an undertaker who'll bury it in one of his graves.
