* Everyone part of S.E.E.S. in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' or the Investigation Team in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', as a bunch of high school students with various personal issues (and an animal of some kind) who are expected to save the humanity from TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': The thieves are a bunch of high school students (and a cat), that include a boy on probation for assault, a self-styled {{Japanese Delinquent|s}}, a quarter-white part time fashion model, a painter's apprentice, the StudentCouncilPresident, a recovering {{Hikikomori}}, an [[{{Ojou}} eccentric rich girl]], a teenage GreatDetective, and, again, a cat. Not the best material for becoming famous [[PhantomThief Phantom Thieves]] or fighting a well-funded criminal conspiracy.

* Everyone part ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei Persona]]'':
** Besides the protagonist, the teenage heroes
of the original ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' comprise of a chronically IllGirl who looks suspiciously healthy ([[spoiler:because she's only a fragment of her real self]]), a mischievous artist, a snooty rich kid, a delinquent transfer student, the class clown, an eccentric rich girl, a rather rude GyaruGirl, and a ''former'' delinquent turned TeamMom. Not only do they start off barely knowing each other for the most part, but several outright hate each other for much of the game.
** ''VideoGame/Persona2'':
*** ''Innocent Sin'': The largely dysfunctional cast consists of an antisocial delinquent (''you''), a perky journalist, the popular foreign girl (who's also a martial arts fanatic), a freelance photographer, a HotBlooded gang leader, and a CulturedBadass [[spoiler:who's the BigBad for most of the game]]. That said, while they start off as mostly strangers to each other, [[spoiler:it's later revealed that most of them were close friends as children, though none of them remember it until near the end]].
*** ''Eternal Punishment'': The heroes are mostly dysfunctional working adults. There's the journalist from ''Innocent Sin'', her lingerie saleswoman roommate, a police detective, a shady information broker, a fashion model, the heir to one of Japan's biggest corporations, plus the antisocial delinquent from ''Innocent Sin''. Several of them wouldn't be caught dead next to each other in normal circumstances.
**
S.E.E.S. in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' or ''VideoGame/Persona3'' is comprised of a NewTransferStudent, a SpiritedYoungLady, the Investigation Team in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', as ClassClown, a bunch of high school students with various personal issues (and an animal of some kind) who BoxingBattler, the StudentCouncilPresident, a ShrinkingViolet, a TagAlongKid, a BruiserWithASoftCenter, a RobotGirl, and a dog. Despite the team not being particularly close to each other at the start, they are expected to save the humanity from TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': ** The Investigation Team of ''VideoGame/Persona4'' consist of the new transfer student, the awkward son of a department store manager, a kung-fu-obsessed tomboy, the local innkeeper's eccentric daughter, a tailor with a FaceOfAThug, a perky IdolSinger, a [[spoiler:cross-dressing]] KidDetective, and a weird teddy bear thing [[spoiler:who becomes a handsome flirty blonde]], who all need to work together to solve a supernatural murder mystery.
** ''VideoGame/Persona5'':
The thieves are a bunch of high school students (and a cat), that include a boy on probation for assault, a self-styled {{Japanese Delinquent|s}}, a quarter-white part time fashion model, a painter's apprentice, the StudentCouncilPresident, a recovering {{Hikikomori}}, an [[{{Ojou}} eccentric rich girl]], a teenage GreatDetective, and, again, a cat.

* In ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER}}'' series, [[AdultsAreUseless where most adults are useless]], the fate of the world against evil aliens lies upon [[KidHero a group of preteen kids]], who would be perfectly normal (if a bit colorful) children if not for their PsychicPowers and/or unusually high intelligence.
** Special mention goes to [[VideoGame/MOTHER3 the third game]]: The only people fighting to prevent the world's destruction are a cowardly preteenage shepherd boy who can't quite get over his troubled past, his loyal dog, a teen girl raised by freaky cross-dressing fairy things who has been locked away in a castle all her life, and a smelly, ridiculed thief in his 20s with a crippled leg. Yet somehow, we're not doomed.

** ''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''.

** With the partial exception of ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss''. While still a bit ragtag in that they stem from different parts of the world and came together somewhat randomly, every party member is either a professional soldier or a member of the nobility with a significant degree of political influence, which makes them well-suited to dealing with the situations which arise within the plot.

In fact, the fact they are all suited for dealing with the problems they are facing is lampshaded early on, making them wonder if it was [[BecauseDestinySaysSo written in the Score]] that they would all come together. [[spoiler: It wasn't, which is perfect as their goal is ultimately to ScrewDestiny to avert TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt ''and'' the BigBad destroying the world in a misguided attempt ScrewDestiny.]]

* In ''VideoGame/SilentStorm'', the composition of the Special Operations-SE2 (Allies) or Abwehr Section 2 (Axis) squad is entirely up to you. You are presented with an array of colorful dossiers on different specialists from various countries. The stand-alone expansion ''Silent Storm Sentinels'' has the titular organization composed of former members of both the SE2 and Abwehr Section 2. This is even more a case in ''Hammer & Sickle'' taking place during the UsefulNotes/ColdWar where the PlayerCharacter is a Soviet spy infiltrating Western Europe and gathering a team that perfectly fits this trope.
