* ''VideoGame/{{Fire Emblem|Tellius}}: Radiant Dawn'''s Dawn Brigade, justified as they are a group of resistance fighters, rather than a formal military group, but that justification goes straight out the window when they become the core of a full blown rebel army.

* In ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireI'', we have TheHero destined to SaveTheWorld, a BadassPrincess [[WingedHumanoid with wings]], a [[HalfHumanHybrid half-wolf]] hunter, the world's best thief who can somehow [[FusionDance fuse with other people]], a greedy fish-man, a literally bull-headed [[TheBigGuy strong man]], the world's most powerful sorceress and a mole-man.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, this is a very common trait of the Dark Brotherhood, an illegal [[MurderInc organization of assassins]] whose membership mostly takes a [[PsychoForHire sadistic glee]] in killing and who practice a ReligionOfEvil. As long as you're willing to kill on command and have some skill in doing so, the Dark Brotherhood [[EqualOpportunityEvil will welcome you]]. Notable members have included [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]], [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolves]], [[MightyGlacier heavily armored]] and [[AnAxeToGrind axe wielding]] [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]], [[PlayingWithFire pyromaniac]] mages who believe in [[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill NoKillLikeOverkill]], and all other manner of misfit. The Dark Brotherhood is damned effective in what they do, right up to having [[TheKingslayer assassinated the Emperor of Tamriel himself]].

** In the backstory, after urging from his son and fellow [[TheOrder Ansei]] ("Sword Saints"), the legendary Yokudan/Redguard hero Frandar Hunding reluctantly led the forces of the Ansei against the corrupt Yokudan Emperor Hira, who was attempting to wipe them out to consolidate his power. Despite their [[SpontaneousWeaponCreation abilities]] as [[MasterSwordsman swordsmen]], they were few in number (Hira's forces outnumbered them ''thirty to one'') and woefully unprepared to form into an organized army. Ever the GuileHero, Frandar devised a strategy which allowed the Ansei to come out on top.

* The central characters of ''VideoGame/ThreeTheHardWay'' consist of a selfish and greedy bartender-turned-bounty-hunter protagonist, his more noble Martial-Arts loving best friend, a strong-willed but sheltered Duchess who always bicker with the protagonist, a wandering monk/martial artist/pit fighter/whatever who knows more about the ongoing conflict than he initially lets on and a Really700YearsOld alchemist with a suspicious agenda and knows the BigBad quite well. Other playable characters include another bounty hunter who hates the protagonist (and the feeling is mutual), a LovableRogue thief who happens to be his niece, a bandit queen, and a former captain of the BigBad's army. Duke Salem and (especially) Duke Winston appear to trust them more than their own soldiers.

*** ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' has the Andromeda Initiative's hopes of success relying on, in order: Someone who got their job on account of their father dying on Day One in Andromeda saving their life (who's either a former bodyguard (Sara Ryder) or former Alliance soldier (Scott) who got blacklisted thanks to their dad), a hot-blooded cop turned crisis response officer, an insanely powerful biotic who identifies more with asari than humans, a good-natured turian smuggler, an asari academic with a troubled past and severe emotional issues, a positively ancient krogan ex-pirate (or, ex-anything remotely related to fighting), and one of the locals, a sniper DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife assigned to them by LaResistance to see if the Initiative's on the level.

*** Not that the one [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX before]] was much better; Yuna's team of Guardians consists of a retired blitzball player, a snarky BlackMage, an exiled Ronso, a guy who claims to be from the sacred city of Zanarkand, a GrumpyOldMan who's also a [[BrokenAce legendary guardian]] of her father, and a member of a race of people who are considered heretics by the rest of the group. And yes, saving the world is a thing they do.

* ''VideoGame/ThirdAgeTotalWar'': The Fellowship of the Ring is the obvious one, but in the main campaign, Eriador is a whole faction of this. Leading a bunch of wandering Dunedain rangers, woodsmen, settlers, Breeland militia, hobbits and a wizard to kick the Followers of Melkor's black-plated evil arses is gratifying as hell even if you don't [[MagikarpPower reforge]] [[TookALevelInBadass Arnor]].

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' is the stand out example though; except for ChildhoodFriends [[KnightInSourArmor Yuri]] [[BloodKnight Lowell]] and [[KnightInShiningArmor Flynn]] [[TheAce Scifo]] and their HeroicDog Repede, there is ''absolutely'' no reason a group made up of a HeroicWannabe kid, a hot tempered {{Tsundere}} mage, a sheltered princess, the only Krityan that fights, a fishy old man, and an eccentric PirateGirl would end up together and as a team. And yet, they do and work well enough to ''save the world''.
