* ''Anime/KillLaKill'' has the Elite Four, an ensemble of Satsuki's top lieutenants. Due to having well-fleshed backgrounds and undergoing constant development in terms of both powers and character, they are also considered somewhat of a SpotlightStealingSquad. Along with Satsuki, they would be a genuine FiveBadBand if it wasn't for [[spoiler:their eventual HeelFaceTurn due to the presence of the BiggerBad.]]

* ''ShamanKing'''s Lily Five team, though they turned out to be [[GoodAllAlong good guys]]. There were also Hao's minions. Despite having such members as a mariachi and a football player, they were all legitimately dangerous. It ends up being quite surprising when members who were closer to mook status turn out to have been [[HeroKiller Hero Killers]] who had been holding back. ''Especially'' the mariachi.

* ''RaveMaster'' was chock full of these. Odds are if a main baddie is introduced, his squad wasn't too far behind.

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

* {{Trigun}}: The Gung-Ho Guns are the enemies of Vash the Stampede in led by [[TheDragon Legato]], though in a twist in the original manga, some actually have humanizing connections with him.

* In ''OnePiece'', almost every villain's named henchmen qualify as a quirky miniboss squad, with some Psycho Rangers thrown in. At first, they're always one miniboss to fight every crew member. As the crew has grown, this has been abandoned, and instead the minibosses have become so powerful than it may take two or three Strawhats just to beat one of them.

* ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' has the Eight Fists of Ragnarok. Or at least six of them, since the BigBad and TheDragon (Odin & Berserker) were the First and Second Fists respectively. Somewhat inverted, as each of the Fists were individually more developed overall than [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Berserker]] was. Also, five of the eight (excluding the BigBad, TheDragon, and TheStarscream) eventually pulled a HeelFaceTurn down the line.

* The Four Chief Vassals of the King organization in ''FistOfTheNorthStar'', which consist of Spade, Diamond, Club, and Heart. Heart serves as TheDragon, being the only member of the group who provides a seemingly genuine threat to Kenshiro's martial art skills.

* ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'' had this in the form of the Cyborgs and the Scorpions. Shinryuuji also had its own within their team who were shout outs to Journey of the West.
