** Both [[BigBadDuumvirate Father and Mr. Boss]], along with [[TheDragon the Delightful Children]], use [[BadHumorTruck ice cream men as mooks]], considering them as expendable as any other type. Father even uses an EliteMook squad of ice cream men in "Operation: T.R.A.I.N.I.N.G.")

** Perhaps a more notable deconstruction is seen in the short "War" which manages to blind the line between mooks and heroes by having a random mook [[spoiler:kill the main character]] take off his helmet and become completely BadAss. [[spoiler:He is then killed by another mook, in a double inversion of WhyDontYouJustShootHim and we follow his killers BadAss action sequence until he is shot by another mook, whose BadAss action sequence we follow through to the end.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' has many examples of these. Lampshaded in "Odds Man In", when it is revealed that Dr. Drakken, in fact, did not pay his henchpeople but attempted to reward them with a large business-inspired incentive program (complete with trust exercises and org charts). Unfortunately for the villain, one of the good guys spread panic throughout the lair while incognito, convincing the henchmen to quit ("You know, 38% of all splinter mishaps are caused by manual lifting. Did you know you have a 17% chance of loosing your good looks practicing martial arts without the correct padding? Yep, one out of every two homemade explosive devices backfire.").

* Sandman, Rhino, and Shocker tend to get this treatment in animated adaptations for WesternAnimation/SpiderMan even though they mostly work alone in the comics. Hammerhead even calls Marko and O'Hirn mooks in ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan''.

* Scarab from ''MummiesAlive'' has a never ending supply of clay minions called Shabti to send against the mummies. [[MadeOfPlasticine They tend to break with one hit]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Mixels}}'' has the Nixels, tiny black-and-white cube-like creatures that [[OnlySixFaces all look the same]] save for three ear variations. Their goal is to destroy the Cubits that let the Mixels [[FusionDance Mix]], thus destroying their creativity. They're easily [[TheGoomba squishable]] on their own, but a danger in [[ZergRush mass quantities]]. They're lead by [[KingMook Major Nixel]], who, while being the only one that has speech tendencies out of just saying [[PokemonSpeak the word "Nix"]], isn't that bright. The app ''Calling All Mixels'' also introduces [[GiantMook Muscle Nixel]] and various weaponized variations of the smaller ones.
