* ''VideoGame/World of Warcraft'' uses this a LOT. This is largely because Big Bads in this game usually need to build armies, so they need at least a few boss-level minions. Usually each member of the squad commands an order or some other kind of faction within the Big Bad's evil army. Either that or they are at least working on separate projects because the Big Bad's plans tend to be very large scale. There are at least four examples, but the best known is the Shadow Council: composed of Gul'dan, Lord Banehollow, Cho'gall, Nagaz, Jergosh the Invoker, and Taragaman the Hungerer. They are certainly quirky, in that they have a wide diversity of abilities and are from several different cultures. They are the behind-the-scenes leaders of the First Horde in the original Warcraft games (through Warchief Blackhand), and after a slight change in membership appear in World of Warcraft [[as agents of the Burning Legion]].
