* Subverted in Creator/GrantMorrison's comic series-cum-"memetic hypersigil" ''TheInvisibles''. In the very first issue, King Mob guns down a large array of cannon-fodder, all wearing helmets with visors. Later in the series, we see the life and times of one of these nameless mooks, and his widow eventually saves Mob's life, calling in medical help for him when she finds him dying of gunshot wounds. When asked about her motive, she replies that her husband was likewise gunned down.

Added DiffLines:
* ''ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'' vs. the Yakuza has an extreme rare example of killed mookesses (if only 2 of them count as mookdom). They are masked as Geishas and obviously never heard of [[NeverBringAKnifeToAGunFight Don't Bring A Hairpin To An Adamantium Claw Fight]]. (Since we are talking about [[WouldHitAGirl Wolverine]], he just says and "What a waste.")

Added DiffLines:
* Lampshaded in ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke'', in which Batman notes that one thing has always remained constant in the Joker's long career: "The poor quality of his hired muscle."

* In the ''{{Asterix}}'' comics, most Roman legionaries exist to get beaten senseless by the Gauls.

* In a very early issue of ''{{Daredevil}}'', the Masked Marauder explains why he started recruiting tried-and-true criminals rather than relying on his costumed peons as he did before. The reason? Simple; they were incompetant morons. In a meta sense, you can argue that his chances of success are increased dramatically because now his thugs don't even wear masks.

* Subverted with the {{X-Men}} character Strong Guy. Guido started out as just an anonymous mook working for some bad guys... but then he reformed and joined the good guys. At the time, he joked that he was just doing it for the paycheck, but he has proven to be a worthy hero.
