* The Order from ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' are a NoCelebritiesWereHarmed version of the Freemasons as they were commonly thought of in Victorian times, being a shadowy group of influential men at the highest reaches of power engaging in mysterious, weird rituals. It's gradually taken over by a powerful and charismatic DarkMessiah who has returned from the dead and is demonstrating his power to such an extent that almost the entire country is utterly terrified of him. However, it's ultimately a complete deconstruction, as the Order is largely presented as a bunch of superstitious and largely ineffectual old men who are utterly caught up in their own mythology [[spoiler: to the extent that they'll let the so-called DarkMessiah, in fact a complete charlatan, seduce them with a theatrical manner and some admittedly pretty clever conjuring tricks. Hey, this is ''Franchise/SherlockHolmes''; as if he wasn't going to be DoingInTheWizard]]. It's also an excuse for them to have orgies, apparently.

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).

* 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]]
