* ''Franchise/DragonBall'' used this trope a bit in its early days, but the Ginyu Force was the last obvious demonstration of it. However, it has been used quite a bit in the non-canon movies, to the point where ''TeamFourStar'' lampoons it with classifications "Pretty One", "Stupid One", and "One with the Weird Powers".

* ''Manga/FairyTail'' has several Quirky Mid-Moss Squads. The Paradise Tower arc pulls a bait and switch which introduces one squad of baddies who are easily trounced -- but then brings out a much more serious bunch.

* ''Manga/SandLand'': One of AkiraToriyama's more obscure works. It featured The Swimmers as a sort of nicer Ginyu Expy squad.

* ''SamuraiDeeperKyo'' has several such groups. Perhaps most stunning is the fact that the protagonist and title character, Kyo himself has his own QuirkyMinibossSquad, the Shiseiten (translated as the Four Emperors in the american release). Also present are Sanada Yukimura's Sanada Ten and Nobunaga's Twelve God Shoguns. The primary villains of the series, the Mibu clan have several of squads of their own, the primary two being the Five Stars and the Four Elders. It gets even more complicated, however, when it is revealed that each of the four elders has his/her own QuirkyMinibossSquad, referred to as the Imperial Guards. Finally, the Crimson King [[spoiler: has his own ''secret'' miniboss squad in the form of the Red Cross Knights, who serve as his secret assassins.]]

* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', the [[LesCollaborateurs Truculent]], start out as the main opponents of the [[LaResistance Ignauts]] up until Babylon, when [[spoiler: Louise defects properly and Ibelda slaughters their other teammates]]. They're all greatly different in appearance and have very different ideas about how to follow orders.

* ''KannazukiNoMiko'' had the "Necks of Orochi", whose appearances parodied stock characters in anime. (As an aside, there were faceless mooks in the manga, but they never made an appearance in the anime.)
