* ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'' puts a lot of effort into giving Mooks a bit of dignity; the enemy soldiers all look the same, but some of them have specific names and are notably more {{bad ass}} than average and are worth remembering, your militia squad is colorful and full of personality, and there's a scene in one chapter devoted to the death of a single faceless enemy Mook who dies in the protagonists' arms, forcing them to realize that the enemy is human too. This doesn't extend to all the ''ally'' Mooks, who get slaughtered en masse [[AMillionIsAStatistic and no one gives half a damn.]]

** The Magitek Soldiers in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV''. [[spoiler:They are actually ''very'' integral to the game's plot, being essentially daemon essence confined in a humanoid armor. The fact that they [[EverythingFades fade away]] in roughly the same manner as the daemons foreshadows this fact to the observant player.]]

* The Waddle Dees from the ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' games are not only completely ineffectual, they barely even have faces. Although they are adorable little guys but get disposed.

** The Shinra guards in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. [[This includes Cloud Strife, as exemplified by his pitiful stats in the flashback to Nibelheim, despite being presented as a SOLDIER; they reflect his true nature as a mere foot soldier.]]
