* While ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series offers a wide variety of enemy types who fill a multitude of roles and niches, the humble [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent Goblin]] race most frequently fills this role. While there are some historical aversions, Goblins are typically AlwaysChaoticEvil semi-intelligent humanoids who live in primitive tribal groups and are frequently aggressive and violent toward other races/species. In every main series' game to date (except for ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', where the [[{{Morlocks}} Morlock]]-like [[OurElvesAreBetter Falmer]] fill this role), Goblins can be found as low-to-mid-level Mook enemies in countless areas throughout the games.[[note]]They also don't appear in vanilla ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', but do appear in the ''Tribunal'' expansion where they are being trained in the city's AbsurdlySpaciousSewer as a Mook army.[[/note]] Historically, in the series' lore, there also existed 8-foot tall Goblins as {{Giant Mook}}s while the standard Goblins have been used by the Altmer (High Elves) and [[SnakePeople Tsaesci]] of [[{{Wutai}} Akavir]] as CannonFodder SlaveMooks. Some Goblins in-game can be found having cobbled together (or salvaged) heavier armors, making them into more threatening {{Heavily Armored Mook}}s.

** Many of the species of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] are aligned to serve one or several of the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]], and they all may be summoned to Mundus in the service of mortal conjurers. For example, the Dremora serve [[DestroyerDeity Mehrunes]] [[OmnicidalManiac Dagon]] as his LegionsOfHell. The more powerful lesser Daedra may approach EliteMook status.

* ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'' has the aptly-named PACT Mooks and their Pirate Grunt equivalents. They are the weakest enemy units in the game, with little health, no armour, no shields, little flak and only a weak laser and submachinegun for weapons. ''Sunrider Liberation Day'' beefs them up slightly, but even then they’re cannon fodder.

** Fairies themselves have been described as perfect mooks, combining colossal stupidity, laughable weakness, and ResurrectiveImmortality into one [[SuicidalOverconfidence suicidally confident]] package.

* ''VideoGame/MetalArmsGlitchInTheSystem'' absolutely delights in its mooks, the "Mils" giving the player myriad ways of [[ComedicSociopathy delighting]] in their [[AnArmAndALeg dismemberment]], [[MindControl forced-heel-face turns]] and [[KillItWithFire immolation]], all to the sound of their [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl high-pitched screaming]]. After the first few levels, they essentially become VideoGameCrueltyPotential popcorn. To their credit, though they are persistent, and will continue fighting on (ineffectually) even with only one leg and a half-attached arm to their name. [[TooDumbToLive Even if it means dropping a grenade at their own feet and blowing themselves up with it by mistake.]] Yeah, they're not too bright either.

* ''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.]]
