* The fifth Franchise/TheDarkTower book, ''Literature/WolvesOfTheCalla'', by Creator/StephenKing. The plot is not only lampshaded but the characters are GenreSavvy enough to ''know'' it's being lampshaded.

* ''The Seven Samurai'' is [[OlderThanTheyThink actually based on]] the third play in the Oedipus trilogy by Creator/{{Aeschylus}}, ''Theatre/SevenAgainstThebes'', making this one OlderThanFeudalism. Although this is also an aversion in that the titular seven brought his own army, they were ''attacking'' the city during a civil war, and very much painted as the villains in contrast to the city's defenders, who the play focuses on (and whoa are also seven, and thus qualify for this trope. Confused yet?).

* ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'' is a less serious take on this trope, borrowing heavily from ''Film/ThreeAmigos'', as well.

No, you haven't been reading TVTropes for [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife so long]] that everything is blending together. This is actually a relatively common plot device. Take the basic plot of a bunch of cool guys + awesome goal + clearly defined personality types + any other overtones of ''Film/SevenSamurai'' you can think of and bam! Instant "team on a mission" story!

* The 1978 ''Film/MessageFromSpace'', made in Japan, also uses this trope. The Gavanas have conquered the planet Jillucia, whose natives have performed a ritual to send magic seeds into the universe to find heroes. The Jillucian leader then sends out his granddaughter Emeralida and her bodyguard Urocco to find the "Liabe heroes" that the seeds have chosen, and bring them back to defend the Jillucians and defeat the Gavanas.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomOMagic'': The first quest, "The Magnificent Seven-Eleven Quest", is a straight-up parody of this, as you have to recruit a group of heroes to defend one of the towns from a barbarian horde. Once you do, the horde turns and leaves as soon as they see your heroes, but the town still gets destroyed... by your heroes, in the drunken post-victory celebrations.
