* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueCrisisOnTwoEarths'' casts [[MirrorUniverse the Crime Syndicate]] as a supervillain mafia. The core members refer to themselves as 'family heads', and their most trusted lieutenants are given superpowers to become 'made men.' Ultraman in particular is basically a Tony Soprano knockoff in a cape.

* ''Fanfic/AftermathOfTheGames'' universe: The human version of the Changelings are an infamous mafia group. They specialize in creating fake identities and profit off of them so they can pull off crimes. Sunset admits she paid them off with gems she brought from Equestria when she ran away so she could get documents to register at Canterlot High and so nobody would question her origins. The group is the BigBad of the sequel ''Integration'', as they're interested in [[TheMagicComesBack the growing Equestrian Magic]] because they can harvest it to dominate the criminal underworld. It's heavily implied that they've been spying on the Rainbooms for a quite a while, and they're not above committing [[spoiler: kidnapping, forced experimentation, and murder ([[KilledToUpholdTheMasqurade even with their own people]])]] to get what they want.
