* The ''Anime/PrettyCure franchise'' has a [[QuirkyMiniBossSquad villain trio]] for almost every continuity (the [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure first]] and [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 third]] continuity has even two). Those said trios are seen more often then other villains at that time. It's either that a member of the trio is [[TheDragon the leader or they're led by a superior fourth person]] who is more working in the background.

Added DiffLines:

** In the ''Sun/Moon'' anime, we have the Team Skull Trio: [[TheLeader Tupp]], [[TheChick Rapp]], and [[TheBigGuy Zipp]]. Although Guzma is the overall leader of the organization, Tupp acts as the leader of the trio.

** Subsequently Captain Foxy and his two main sidekicks Hamburg and Porche in the anime keep reappearing from time to time to stir up trouble and get rather easily beaten. And for Porche to chase after her "Choppy".
*** To better drive the point home, Foxy, Hamburg and Porche are somewhat similar to the Doronojo Gang, with Foxy actually using a mecha and Porche's looks being the same as Dronio with blue hair and different clothes.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': The Team Rocket trio. Jessie often takes the Leadership role, while James and Meowth are the henchmen (though, unlike most of these groups, they introduce themselves as equals). Their boss is Giovanni, who started out giving them orders, then as they kept messing up he essentially gave up on them. He lets them follow Ash around to get them away from him. By now he doesn't even recognize them.
** In the first few episodes, Meowth was the leader type while Jessie and James were the henchmen.
** As of ''Best Wishes'', the trio has gone into [[LetsGetDangerous serious mode]] for an undercover mission. So far, they've stayed away from this trope. After the Meloetta arc, however, the status quo is reestablished.
** An episode of Pokémon Chronicles (spinoff of the main Pokémon anime) showing one of the trio's early missions shows them to be quite competent as well.

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''
** The three warriors of the Musk Dynasty, Herb, Lime and Mint. Herb is the leader and initially of the opposite sex of ''her'' cronies, [[GenderBender though through no choice of]] ''his''. Lime and Mint are the dim-witted minions, one big and [[SuperStrength strong]], the other short and [[SuperSpeed fast]]. For all their comedic moments, they are all extremely dangerous in a fight.

*** This was later changed to Jessie being the leader type.
*** Actually, the group has no official leader. As stated above, they consider each other equals. It's just that Jessie has a bossy personality.

* Also from "Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia", this is the common fandom portrayal of the Bad Touch/Friends Trio of Spain, Prussia and France. Depending on who the writer likes best, any of them can play leader. The most common is Prussia leading, France playing the feminine but smart allec who flirts with anything that moves along the way, and Spain who follows in the chaos while daydreaming of "his little Lovi" or Tomatoes. But there is just about any mix and match of these three imaginable.

* ''SukebanDeka'' has the Mizuchi Sisters, Remi, Ayumi, and Emi, daughters of a corrupt politician but devious in their own respective rights. On the surface they appear to be a group of glamorous and popular high school students who attend Takanoha High and run their respective cliques, but in reality they are as follows:

** By far the most popular of these groups was the Doronobo Gang from ''Anime/{{Yatterman}}'', who grace the page image. They're so well-loved in Japan that when the series was remade in 2008, advertising for the remake focused primarily on them, ignoring the show's actual protagonists. In fact, the [[Anime/YoruNoYatterman sequel series]] was about their descendants, with the original heroes leaving a legacy of {{Hero Antagonist}}s.

** An episode of Pokémon Chronicles (spinoff of the main Pokémon anime) showing one of the early missions the trio took part of shows them to be quite competent as well.
