* When the ''{{Thunderbolts}}'' were turned over to HAMMER in the wake of Comicbook/DarkReign, one of Norman Osborn's immediate hires was Paladin. Paladin has made a name for himself in the Marvel Universe as a reliable mercenary who gets the job done and doesn't ask questions, and he stays true to that reputation for much of his tenure with the team. He knows Osborn is crazy and that what he's doing is wrong, but, well, as long as there's money, you know?

Best summed up in ''Asterix and the Cauldron'' where thanks to a misunderstanding the legionaries of a fort thought that it was paying time and when told to give money they started a strike shouting ''We are not conquerors for nothing!''

* ComicBook/Asterix: Quite a few Roman legionaries (at least those who aren't schemers or nationalists) are there to make some fast (and they thought easy) money and get on with their lives and don't care much about the indomitable village or revenge, attacking Gauls only to avoid punishment from their superiors (and in some cases preferring the punishment than the beatdown they will suffer from their intended victims).

* The ''{{Deadpool}}'' comic book upgrades the faceless minions of HYDRA into Punch Clock Villains, mostly through the info we receive from Deadpool's kidnapped [[strike:pet]] minion Bob, Agent of HYDRA. Through him we learn that some of the minions of HYDRA doesn't care about the take over the world agenda, they just can't find work anywhere else. They also fear and hate CaptainAmerica, Elektra and Wolverine. However, one downside of working for HYDRA is that they don't get dental insurance.
