* Ghouls from ''{{Hellsing}}''. Mindless, infinitely disposable, and created en masse by inexperienced vampires.

* The typical low rank Marines in ''OnePiece''. Luffy can defeat hundreds at once, and their role is just typically to showcase the abilities of a certain character (and freak out about how crazy he is,) then continue the attack so that they can get mowed down some more. True to form, they are frequently endless, for all intents and purposes.

* When some Ryozanpaku masters in ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' tell Kenichi that he is not as good a fighter as he ought to be because he didn't defeat his last opponent fast enough, Shigure, who nurtures some [[CoolBigSis sisterly feelings]] towards Kenichi, tries to defend him by telling them that the opponent threw too many mooks at him. This provokes the following responses from them:

* ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' has mooks by the truckload, every one of them a cruel despoiler of the innocent. When Kenshiro shows up, their life expectancy usually drops to zero in [[YourHeadASplode quite messy fashion]].

** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' has the ever-iconic Zaku Mk II.
** ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' opts for the Hizack, which is basically a Mk II piloted by different people.
** ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' tends to be lacking in this, but the Death Army certainly counts.

* ''Manga/FairyTail'': Appear later in the series courtesy of the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil being somewhat inverted: the early threats simply don't have enough manpower to field armies of FacelessGoons - unlike the Baram Alliance dark guilds and the kingdom of Edolas. As a result, mooks are treated as a reasonably credible threat and may sometimes overpower the heroes through sheer numbers.

* Zombies generally have a soft spot for being mooks. In [[KaraNoKyoukai the fifth movie of Kara no Kyoukai]], it gets even worse than that. Simply put? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBrWcKIteAo&NR=1&fmt=22 Ryougi Shiki is a human wheat thresher.]]

** By the time a pirate hits the New World, an army of mooks is pretty much useless. Thanks to the ability "Conquerer's Haki" (which Luffy has), one can impose their will on someone, and, if their will is weak enough, knock them out. Luffy used this ability in the Fishman Island arc to knock out '''''50,000''''' mooks in one blast -- and the only reason he didn't knock out the ''other'' 50,000 is because his crew needed someone to fight.

** An interesting occasion comes up in the climax of the Enies Lobby arc, in which two hundred Marine Captains are sent after the Straw Hats. The Straw Hats are initially concerned about this, as that's the rank [[ImplacableMan Smoker]] was when they last saw him. Fortunately, it turns out that Smoker's CowboyCop tendencies kept him [[AlmightyJanitor at a rank far lower than what suited his skills]], and the rest of the Captains weren't nearly that strong, and basically went down like Mooks.

** This gets played for laughs in the Straw Hat crew. Zoro has once dubbed Sanji "Pirate A". Sanji did not take his mook status well.
