->''"I will be an equal-opportunity despot and make sure that terror and oppression is distributed fairly, not just against one particular group that will form the core of a rebellion."''
-->-- ''EvilOverlordListCellblockA''

Bad guys are often remarkably open when it comes to race, gender, religion, species, and so forth of their members. [[AlwaysChaoticEvil Some races might always be evil]], but evil really knows no bounds. If the characters have [[AmbitionIsEvil the ambition]], [[BloodKnight the bloodlust]], [[KickTheDog the hatred of puppies]], or [[ForTheEvulz the simple enjoyment of being evil]], they're welcome to sign up. EvilIsOneBigHappyFamily, after all.

At full force, this trope leads to [[CosmopolitanCouncil a remarkably diverse set of top brass]], as well.

If this trait is emphasized more than necessary, it might come across as a PetTheDog moment. It might even result in RootingForTheEmpire if the [[DesignatedHero "good guys"]] [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero are not so unbiased]]. It might even suggest that it's okay to be unethical or even murderous as long as you're "fair" about it. A villain could do this if it serves their own evil ends, and someone who employs equally can just as easily [[HatesEveryoneEqually hate everyone equally]] and may have no problems with ''[[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness disposing of]]'' their minions just as easily, often [[YouHaveFailedMe permanently]].

While often done to avoid portraying certain races as evil, it can go into the other direction if the heroes are all one ethnicity and every other race are villains, or perhaps suggesting that race-mixing is inherently bad while segregation is good. Compare WhiteGangBangers and StraightEdgeEvil. Contrast PoliticallyIncorrectVillain and for the heroic side, NobleBigot. Note however that they are not mutually exclusive; a villain can be intolerant towards some groups but progressive towards others. See also AlikeAndAntitheticalAdversaries and AntiHumanAlliance. May go hand in hand with BetterLivingThroughEvil. May overlap with CarnivalOfKillers. See FiveTokenBand for the good-aligned version. A villain who is actively keen on achieving this is a PoliticallyCorrectVillain.

Needless to say, this trope is TruthInTelevision. For example, pirates were a notoriously motley crew, while mercenaries have accepted members on purely meritocratical basis in their gangs. Perhaps the most striking example has been [[UsefulNotes/NazisWithGnarlyWeapons Waffen-SS]], which founded ''dozens'' of voluntary divisions amongst the conquered peoples when things began to go pear-shaped with Germany. Those foreign volunteers were usually the hardest fighting units at the end of the Third Reich. Any other specific RealLife examples are superfluous and therefore redundant.



[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* In the ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' manga, the Gung-Ho Guns were very equal-opportunity in employing all manner of disabilities and lifestyles (a paraplegic, a quadriplegic, a gang of midgets, a child [[spoiler:who's really a sandworm, but point stands]], a one-eyed woman, a transvestite, a samurai, a man with split personality, their own musician...) As long as they were sufficiently villainous and ruthless, Knives didn't care since he doesn't care enough about humans to discriminate.
* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}},'' the BigBad, Griffith, allows people from all walks of life to join his army, including demons, commoners, soldiers from nearly every neighboring country, and even people from the nation of Kushan that he is currently fighting against (though in the latter case, it's because they were from a country invaded by the Kushans, and thus not particularly motivated or loyal).
* While the Red Ribbon Army of ''Manga/DragonBall'' wears [[PuttingOnTheReich strangely familiar uniforms]], they apparently do not discriminate based on race, species, or sexual orientation.
** Freeza has numerous different alien races working as members of his Planet Trade Organization. Debatable however, since Freeza doesn't employ any of his own species. Remember that these are soldiers and thus at risk of injury and death. It's also made ''very'' clear that he is extremely racist toward Saiyans despite initially making the entire race working for him.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** Aizen was willing to use anyone if it meant they could help him achieve his goals. He enlisted Shinigami such as the [[TwoferTokenMinority blind, black-skinned]] Tousen and [[EyesAlwaysShut Gin]]. He also enlisted Hollows, the arch-enemies of Shinigami, such as the black-skinned, witch-doctor-themed Zommari, the female DarkSkinnedBlonde Harribel, the mysogynistic Nnoitra, and the [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette nihilistic]] Ulquiorra.
** The Quincies hunt Hollows and hate Shinigami. That hasn't stopped Yhwach forcibly enlisting Hollows and attempting to recruit Shinigami to their ranks. Although some Arrancar accepted the offer, no Shinigami so far has. The Quincies themselves are a diverse group that comes from all over the world.
* ''Manga/DGrayMan'' has the Noah family, as the Noah memory seems to choose its apostles indiscriminatedly all over the globe. They have two women including a little girl, Western Europeans, a black man, an Indian man, Americans, an Egyptian man and an individual covered with a hood of unknown gender. On the other hand, the good guys are just as diverse.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'' gives us Sir Crocodile, who has hired a black man, a flamboyant transvestite, old people, and every male member of his team has completely equal female partner, including himself. Sure he may be evil, but at least he isn't prejudiced! Well, the transvestite doesn't have a partner. He considered himself his own partner in that regard.
** Doflamingo's crew is just as diverse as Crocodile's. There are people of all ages, both genders and all levels of weirdness.
* The military dictatorship Amestris of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' is mostly an example of this. There are women in the military, and it is a multi-ethnic country (if only because of its continual brutal conquest of its neighbors). They didn't always qualify though, as prior to the war against Ishball, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything there was a purge of people of Ishballan descent from throughout the ranks of Amestrian society]].
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', Orochimaru's [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Sound Four]] are a fat guy, a [[AmbiguouslyBrown brown]] six armed person, a woman who curses like a sailor, two persons not completely unlike conjoined Twins, and the leader is a terminally ill guy.
** In-Universe there is Akatsuki, who employ members from almost every country[[note]]As the Raikage points out, no Cloud ninjas are in Akatsuki[[/note]] and every member has an completely different philosophy (humorously, the members with opposite philosophies are [[EvilDuo paired together]]). That's to say nothing of the plant, the human-shark hybrid, and the puppet that they accepted into their ranks.
* The [[spoiler:[[BrainUploading computerized]]]] Dream Future executive branch of 'Net Ghost Pipopa' is composed of American, European, Asian and North African members.
* The DUCK organization from ''Anime/{{Tsuritama}}''. The [[CosmopolitanCouncil top brass]] has black, Arabic, and Asian members, as well as a great gender ratio, and their lead agent, Akira, is Indian.
* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'''s [[RuthlessModernPirates Lagoon Company]] consists of a black man, a Chinese-American woman, a Japanese man, and a Jewish-American man.
* In ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', Shishio's main followers include a former [[HighClassCallGirl prostitute]], a {{transgender}} person, a [[DisabilitySuperPower blind guy]], giant who is about 20-feet tall (and a [[EvilGenius financial expert]] and an ArrogantKungFuGuy). Further, his philosophy itself fits this. Shishio is a [[TheSocialDarwinist Social Darwinist]] who dreams of Japan becoming a militaristic warrior paradise. While he has no empathy at all for those he considers weak, Shishio doesn't gauge strength based on wealth and background.
* Mello's [[TheMafia Mafia]] gang in ''Manga/DeathNote'' appears to be this. Rod Ross doesn't seem to judge on appearances or background. Case in point: Mello is young (as in, barely out of his teens), [[PrettyBoy pretty, androgynous, and blond]], AmbiguouslyGay, and foreign...yet he's ''practically'' [[TheDon the group's leader]]. (Nominally, that title goes to Rod, but in practice ''he'' answers to Mello.)
* Millenium from ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' is a mild case of this, at least by the extremely low bar set by [[ThoseWackyNazis the Third Reich.]] Whereas in RealLife the Nazis were very big on women [[StayInTheKitchen remaining in the kitchen]], Millenium has two women in its senior ranks and appears to be willing to bring in individuals like Jan Valentine and Tubalcain 'the Dandy Man' Alhambra who seem to be less than the Aryan ideal.
* ''Anime/CodeGeass''
** The Holy Britannian Empire is a [[ZigZaggingTrope zig-zagging]] example of this trope. Being reminiscent of Nazi Germany, they are known for being ''very racist'' against anyone who isn't Britannian. That being said, they're surprisingly cool with women seeing as how there are numerous female members among their ranks. Also, there seems to be some diversity among them, as suggested by Villetta Nu (AmbiguouslyBrown) and Dorothea Ernst (black).
** If you view them as [[EvilVersusEvil villains]], The Order of the Black Knights fit. They're the [[LaResistance resistance]] who's goal is to liberate Japan from [[TheEmpire Britannia]]. As you can imagine, the vast majority of members are Japanese, but its explicitly stated that your ethnicity is of little importance, and they're trying to reform Japan in the vision of the United States of America ([[AlternateHistory what it was supposed to be anyways]]). Case in point, their leader Zero aka Lelouch vi Britannia is of [[BlueBlood royal Britannian ancestry]]. Their top brass includes a [[ButNotTooForeign half-Japanese/half-Britannian]] woman as his right-hand (Kallen), an [[BollywoodNerd Indian woman]] running the R&D department (Rakshata), and a [[TokenEnemyMinority Britannian]] as the head of PR (Diethard). Also, it doesn't seem to matter much if you're a man or a woman as long as you can fight for them. The organization only gets more diverse later on.
* Many of the dark guilds in ''Manga/FairyTail'' operate under this position, since by their very existence they're criminals and they need all the manpower possible to stay alive should the legal guilds receive requests from clients or the Magic Council to take them down. The [[TheEmpire Alvarez Empire]] in the neighboring country takes the cake, however, since it came into existence when ''all'' the light and dark guilds across the country joined together to overthrow the government and establish a new one, and its Emperor's PraetorianGuard is made up of not just people from the Empire, but several that came from the country of Ishgar (where the Fairy Tail guild and most of the events of the story take place) they intend to invade, as well as [[RoboticReveal sentient machines]], [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons created by one of the most infamous mages in history]], [[spoiler:and a dragon]]. It helps that their leader chose them specifically for their [[SuperpowerLottery raw Magical power]].
* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'': The League of Villains goes in this direction after they start recruiting. One of their members, Kenji Hikishi (Magne), is male-to-female transgender and everybody refers to her with the proper pronouns -- even Shigaraki, who generally seems to care very little about what people think. In fact, Magne's teammate Jin (Twice) gets violently angry at someone for misgendering "Big Sis Magne" [[spoiler:and even moreso when that same person kills her.]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* In the [[TheEighties 1980s]] and [[TheNineties 1990s]], Marvel's Serpent Society fit this trope to a T. From the group's inception, about half of them were women -- and supervillain teams have tended to be boys' clubs. There were several black members, at least one Hispanic member, and at least one Middle Eastern member. The Society also welcomed disabled people: Death Adder was mute, Rattler was deaf, and Bushmaster was an amputee. (The last was a case of DisabilitySuperpower, as he'd replaced his missing limbs with super-strong cybernetic parts.)
** Funny thing is that the Serpent Society started out as a spin-off from HYDRA... Who were [[ThoseWackyNazis NAZIS]]. (Although they kind of [[MotiveDecay grew into "generic evil organization" over time]].)
** ComicBook/{{HYDRA}} themselves would count, since they've been shown to have female and non-white members. Baron Strucker {{Lampshaded}} this at one point by noting that with age, his penchant for racism and eugenics had faded. Now he embraces the idea of diversity...because that just means more loyal subjects beneath his boot when he finally conquers the world.
** Both played straight and subverted with many of the ComicBook/XMen's enemies. While both the human bigots and mutant supremacists actively hate and discriminate against the "other side", their own memberships are often depicted as otherwise ethnically diverse. The subversion comes with the fact that they're hatemongers against either humans or mutants, and yet have no problem accepting members from many different ethnic backgrounds.
* In Franchise/TheDCU, Kobra might be a bunch of crazy murderous cultist with a snake fetish, but they pride themselves on understanding that "the serpent comes in many colours." Apparently serpent-obsessives have no time for prejudice.
* Somewhat lampshaded during Marvel's Acts Of Vengeance event, in which Loki assembles an evil team supreme consisting of SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom (Romani), ComicBook/{{Magneto}} (Jewish), the Mandarin (Chinese), the Kingpin, the Wizard, and the ComicBook/RedSkull (a Nazi). (He tried to recruit Namor too, which would have added an Atlantean to the group had Namor accepted, but he did not.) It ''really'' didn't work out. Entirely apart from the clash of egos, none of them could stand the Skull, and vice-versa. When you put the most evil Nazi in fiction in the same team as [[SwissArmySuperpower the most powerful]] and [[HeWhoFightsMonsters pissed off Holocaust survivor]] in history, you are really pushing the limits of this trope. To the surprise of nobody, the event ended with Magneto [[KickTheSonOfABitch locking the Skull in an underground bunker with no light and limited water]], to [[AndIMustScream die painfully of thirst and starvation]] with just his sins for company. The two men had never met, but Magneto hated him anyway (with ''very'' good reason; nobody else liked him either). When his minions broke him out, the first thing he did was [[TitleDrop swear vengeance on the mutant.]]
* Speaking of which, the Red Skull (well, his clone) is the leader of a team of "superheroes" dubbed the S-Men in ''Comicbook/UncannyAvengers''. The team is very diverse, with a membership drawing from places as far off as Greece and Ethiopia. {{Lampshaded}} in that the Red Skull is still a horrible bigot, and only assembled such a diverse group to help sway the general public against his current target; mutants.
* Discussed in ''ComicBook/HouseOfM'', an AlternateUniverse story where ComicBook/{{Magneto}} and his army managed to conquer the world. Thunderbird mentions that he joined Magneto's cause precisely because of the racism he suffered as an American Indian, a form of discrimination that he no longer experiences in a world run by mutants.
* Lampshaded in Marvel's ComicBook/{{Runaways}} number 7, our heroes are doing some survival shoplifting. Upon arrival, Nico isn't convinced about their disguises. "We look like those politically correct, multi-ethnic gangs that only rob people on bad TV shows."
* The ComicBook/MarvelStarWars series of the late 1970s and 1980s probably has more female antagonists than the rest of the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse combined. Lumiya is by far the most famous but there are many others ranging from serious villainesses like Kharys to one issue annoyances like Captain Traal. There are even a couple of nameless female Mooks! The contrast with later writers is really quite startling.
** In ''ComicBook/{{Legacy}}'' both the [[TheEmpire Fel Empire]] and the reborn Sith Empire are far more diverse than the Empire and the Sith seen in the films, with both readily accepting women and non-humans into their ranks. This is particularly notable with the Fel Empire, as the earlier incarnation of the Galactic Empire under Palpatine was openly prejudiced against non-humans.
* ComicBook/ThePunisher special from the mid-90s ''Empty Quarter'' featured a convention of every newsworthy terrorist organization of the time. Their brilliant plan was to switch targets, so some survivalist militia would bomb the Vatican on behalf of Hezbollah. Apparently all those Catholic IRA members were cool with this.
* Another Marvel example is the Masters Of Evil, archenemies of the Avengers and the Marvel heroes in general. Their roster changes a lot just like their heroic counterparts and has included villains from just about every demographic (women like Moonstone and Titania, non-white men like [[AmbiguouslyBrown Beetle]] and Radioactive Man, and even a LGBT member in the form of [[ButchLesbian Man-Killer]]). This is especially notable as the Masters' default leader, Baron Zemo, is the son of the infamous Nazi member Heinrich Zemo, who helped found/lead HYDRA before his death at the hands of Captain America (granted, Zemo long ago abandoned his father's Nazi ideals, to the point that he once dated a Jewish woman).
* ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'': As expected from pirates, they are a motley crew of several nationalities and one inclination: get gold through the easy cutthroat way. Also one tendency to run away from a certain pair of Gauls.
* One ''ComicBook/{{Grendel}}'' short story has DiabolicalMastermind Hunter Rose getting [[TranquilFury quietly but terrifyingly]] upset on discovering that members of one of the Mafia gangs he took over were planning to murder one of their own for being a {{Gayngster}}.
* Most of the bad guys in ''ComicBook/AtomicRobo'' are aversions: Helsingard and Dr Shinka rely on created minions, Dr Dinosaur and ALAN are solo threats, Department Zero and Chokaiten are national agencies from Russia and Japan respectively, and ThoseWackyNazis [[ShapedLikeItself are Nazis]]. Majestic 12, however, is willing to hire almost anyone they can control, as long as they're a useful asset - the second general shown is Abigail Brooks, and a black man is tapped to get rid of the outside investigators in volume 8. Taken even further in the RPG sourcebook, where the sample group of PunchClockVillain Majestic agents consists of Cecilia Hirsch, Adetokunbo Aafolayan, Dervil Meaney, Ping Hayashi, Odin Ortega, and Kathy [=McCulloch=].
* The nationalist, right-wing Sons of the Serpent militia in Marvel comics fights to restore a white America, so they are obviously politically incorrect villains, but they allow women in their organization on what appears to be equal terms.
* ''ComicBook/PathfinderWorldscape'': Empress Camilla has an extremely diverse collection of minions from multiple dimensions such as a [[TheTimeOfMyths Hyborian]] [[EvilSorcerer sorcerer]], a [[SnakePeople snake woman]], a KillerGorilla, White Martians, a Black Martian and an elf, the last two are lesbians. Quite progressive for a tyrant used to rule over an African trible as a deity and demanded human sacrifice from them, and now presides over the titular Worldscape.

[[folder:Fan Fiction]]
* While [[DesignatedVillain they only come off as evil in the author's eyes]], the enemies of ''Fanfic/ThePrayerWarriors'' consist of the Greek, Roman and Egyptian gods and their followers, [[Literature/HarryPotter the students of Hogwarts]], DirtyCommunists and the Titans, as well as many others. Among them are satyrs, homosexuals, feminists, drug lords, vampires, the English royal famliy and people who represent almost everything that the Prayer Warriors hate.
** Same with the ''Fanfic/MRATrilogy'', which the [[StrawFeminist feminist]] ranks have not only women, but also various species of aliens (including the ''[[Franchise/MassEffect Reapers]]''), dinosaurs, water elementals, demons, pagan goddesses and gay men.
* In ''FanFic/HarryPotterAndThePowerOfTheDarkSide'' Darth Veneficus (a.k.a. Harry Potter) notes that the Sith are accepting of all species and that respect is gained through power not one's origins. Darth Veneficus finds it pathetic the way the Death Eaters limit themselves with notions of "blood purity" and [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech tells Draco and his fellow Slytherins as much.]]
* In ''FanFic/TheJadedEyesSeries'' while Harry/Tristan hates Muggles he's friends with and strives for the rights of Magical Creatures. His followers are mostly non-human magic users such as elemantals, satyrs, furies, gargoyles, werewolves, and vampires.
* ''FanFic/BadFutureCrusaders'': Twilight Sparkle, who has [[FaceHeelTurn become]] a tyrannical despot and turned Equestria into a PoliceState, nevertheless employs Changelings (who are [[FantasticRacism universally despised]]) as her spy network, and has ponies of both genders in her Royal Guard (which in canon appears to be entirely composed of stallions). Astringe, the artist whose pictures the story is adapted from, lampshaded this with the following comment:
-->"Also too, I had a thought when Scootaloo and Apple Bloom passed a pair of guards and one was a woman. Twilight's army is unisex? How come the bad guys in these kinds of stories are always the most progressive?"
* ''Fanfic/TheRiseOfDarthVulcan'': Vulcan's criminal enterprise includes diamond dogs, [[spoiler: changelings]], minotaurs, and ponies of both genders and every tribe (originally just escaped convicts, but later expanding to include ponies from every walk of life who have grown dissatisfied with Celestia's rule). Later still, he has no objection to his NumberTwo, Artful Dodger, recruiting [[TheFairFolk Tooth Breezies]] as his own personal goon squad.

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven''. While trying to lure Charlie to the bad side, Belladonna, [[BigGood Anabelle's]] [[EvilTwin evil]] [[UncannyFamilyResemblance cousin]], pretty much says this word for word.
--> '''Belladonna''': Think of my organization as an equal opportunity employer. No matter who you are or what you want to be; when you join with me, it's always an easy ride.
* In ''Disney/TheLionKing'', Scar generally gets along with the hyenas (though being a snob, he looks down on ''everyone'') and is more than willing to employ them in his plans to take the throne, and integrates them into the Pride Lands after becoming king, whereas the other "good" lions are pretty big pricks to them (though they may have their reasons). (Hilariously, this has led [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical some conservative propagandists to portray Scar as an evil socialist]] because he gave special privileges to the hyenas and the Pride Lands fell into decay as a result.) Additionally, going by the voice actors, the hyenas [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Shenzi, Banzai and Ed]] are respectively black, Hispanic and white.
* Bad Bill's gang in ''WesternAnimation/{{Rango}}'' are of very mixed nationality in a film otherwise populated almost entirely by Americans on both the good and bad sides. Bill himself is voiced by the very Cockney Creator/RayWinstone, while his cohorts have a variety of accents.
* While not seen in the army itself, ([[MenAreTheExpendableGender probably for other reasons]]), Shan-Yu of ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' is one of the few men never to show any sexism towards Mulan, just seeing her as another enemy.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Death Wish''
** In ''Film/DeathWishII'', the gang of scum includes two white, two black, and one Hispanic member, all buddies.
** ''Film/DeathWish3'' portrays all the street gangs of New York as multiethnic.
* ''Film/CityOfGod'' features multiethnic gangs. TruthInTelevision as ethnic tensions in Brazil are very low.
* ''Film/LaHaine'' features three poor French criminals working together: Vinz (Jewish), Hubert (black African) and Sayid (a North African Muslim).
* The ''Film/StreetFighter'' movie has Bison recruit minions and henchmen from all over the world, the end of the movie even has a joke segment using national stereotypes to make fun of his international regiments.
* Spoofed in ''Film/BlazingSaddles'': The villain's "[[{{Mooks}} Thugs]] Wanted" ads specify that he's "An Equal Opportunity Employer", and it includes several representatives from hate groups like TheKlan and the Nazis.
-->'''Lamarr:''' I want you to round up ''every'' vicious criminal and gunslinger in the west. Take this down.
-->''(Taggart looks for a pen and paper while Hedley talks)''
-->'''Lamarr:''' I want [[ArmyOfThievesAndWhores rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperadoes]], [[RhymingList mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers]], [[LongList con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers]] and ''[[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Methodists!]]''
* The thousand armies of the Persian Empire in ''Film/ThreeHundred'' seem to encompass every non-Greek race living in the Old World at the time -- from actual Persians, to black Africans, to...[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot orc ninja samurai]]? Historically speaking, the Achaemenid Persian empire was ''gigantic'' ([[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a0/World_500_BCE.png that's them in brown there]]) and frequently levied large numbers of troops from its conquered territories.
* Carl Grissom's criminal syndicate in ''Film/{{Batman}}'' was remarkably diverse, containing representatives with [[FacialProfiling stereotypically Italian, Jewish, and Chinese facial features]]; when ComicBook/TheJoker takes over this gang, he hires a Black kung-fu expert (by far his most lethal henchman) and adds him to the mix. There's even an AmbiguouslyBrown (Arab? Latino? Half-Polynesian?) samurai-swordsman with EightiesHair who appears to have a high rank in the gang hierarchy. Inverted with Lieutenant Eckhardt's squad of crooked cops, who are all white; Commissioner Gordon, meanwhile, has at least two Black men working for him, one of whom appears to have the rank of captain, as he reports to Gordon personally.
* ''Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy''
** The League of Shadows from ''Film/BatmanBegins'' had Europeans, Asians, and at least one African among its ranks in the few scenes we see them [[FacelessGoons with their masks off]] (a review of the video game based on the film pointed out how jarring it seemed that the enemies the player faces in the game are very racially mixed).
** ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' [[JustifiedTrope shows that the various ethnic gangs in Gotham (Blacks, Italians, Chechens, Chinese, etc) are so scared of the Batman that they started working together against him]]. When [[BigBad The Joker]] comes along, even before he takes over the various gangs, it's obvious he doesn't care in the slightest about race or sanity provided his goons do as he says.
* Clarence Boddicker's gang in the original ''Film/RoboCop1987''. White, black, Asian and Latin.
* ZigZagged in ''Film/SmallSoldiers''; the Commando Elite are a group of [[ItMakesSenseInContext evil sentient action figures]]. They are the enemies of the heroic but monstrous Gorgonites, and as such are [[FantasticRacism Fantastic Racists]], but have no other prejudices. One of them is black, and they recruit a group of Barbie doll-[[{{Expy}} Expies]] as soldiers.
* ''Franchise/StarWars'':
** The Sith come in all colors, genders, and species. Emperor Palpatine himself couldn't care less (considering everyone to be equally inferior to him personally), but encouraged the Empire's prejudice towards aliens anyway to help maintain his power since humans are the majority of the Empire's population and the Core Worlds elite tend to be human males who actually are extremely prejudiced. Thus, the Empire officially was pretty much human only, with aliens being at best shuffled off to insignificant roles, but Palpatine would make (almost always secret) exceptions for aliens whose skills were particularly useful to him.
** TheEmpire itself is a somewhat odd example. In the original trilogy, their members were almost exclusively white male [[EvilBrit Evil Brits]], likely to play up the [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi-esque undertones]] of the faction. In the new [[ContinuityReboot post-Disney continuity]] however, ExpandedUniverse materials show that male and female humans of various ethnicities served in the Empire as officers, soldiers, admirals and stormtroopers without any discrimination. This is in contrast to the ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'' continuity, which portrayed the Empire as having a chauvinistic streak that discriminated against women serving in their military. In all of their appearances however they are portrayed as having FantasticRacism against non-human species.
** The Confederacy of Independent Systems in the prequels seems to be this combined with CosmopolitanCouncil. Most member races/organizations are non-human, with Count Dooku being one of the only humans in the organization. They employ [[MechaMooks Droids]], Geonosians (the flying insect aliens), cyborgs (Grievous), fallen non-human Jedi (Asaaj Ventress), and mutant alien caveman cyborgs. This could be taken as impetus for the Empire to be as discriminatory as it wanted to be, if they fostered backlash in the media. (The {{novelization}} for ''Revenge of the Sith'' makes it clear that fostering backlash and animosity against non-humans was indeed part of Count Dooku's plans, after he would conveniently switch sides after being captured by Anakin - [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves not that that worked out for him in the end]]. Palpatine, being the ultimate pragmatist, couldn't care less.)
** Jabba's Palace in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' had all kinds of aliens: a Hutt, two Twi'leks (one of them female), Humans (of all races), Rodians, Gamorreans, Weequays, Klatooinians, Niktos, Jawas, even DROIDS, etc as the villains. Plus a cackling lizardmonkey.
** The First Order from ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' seemingly dropped the Empire's anti-alien stance given their Supreme Leader is a non-human himself, albeit he is [[TokenNonhuman the only one we ever see]]. The actual human members making it up are much more diverse than the Imperials seen in the original trilogy, including non-white and female officers and enlisted personnel.
** The Mandolorians sometimes have this trait and sometimes don't DependingOnTheWriter. Sometimes they'll induct anyone with the skill and inclination from any race or gender into their BloodKnight clans and start massive wars for fun, sometimes those clans are humans-only, and other times they're just a largely-peaceful human ethnicity that happens to have some famous criminal members.
* ''Film/IronMan''
** In the 2008 ''Film/IronMan1'' film the villainous terrorist group operating in Afghanistan, the Ten Rings, is specifically described as having members speaking a variety of languages from all over Central Asia, plus Russian and Hungarian. Astute fans of the comic book might not have been surprised if an East Asian showed his face, too... ([[spoiler:As the leader of the group, naturally.]]) Which is a case of TruthInTelevision apparently. Many of the paramilitary and terrorist groups are open to and include considerable numbers of Europeans and North Africans.
** The [[AllThereInTheManual comic book prequel]] to ''Film/IronMan3'' has Comicbook/WarMachine facing a Ten Rings chapter from Hong Kong.
** ''Film/AllHailTheKing'' has a white American Ten Rings operative. And if the legend put forth in the short is to be believed, the entire organization was founded on the teachings of the Mandarin, an ancient Chinese warrior king.
* The gang from the horror movie ''While She Was Out'' consists of a white guy, a black guy, a Puerto Rican and an Asian.
* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean''
** The crew of the Black Pearl (both Barbossa's lot and Jack's lot) in the series include white, African, and what appear to be Indian members--Annamaria in the [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl first film]] is a black woman, and while Gibbs makes much of her gender nobody bats an eye at her skin color.
** And in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd'' we see pirates literally from all over the world, with the Brethren Court encompassing many races, cultures and ''at least'' two genders.
** This is somewhat TruthInTelevision as real pirates didn't particularly care about race and accepted Anne Boney and Mary Read (although they both originally pretended to be men). Alternative sexualities were also welcomed. They were all social rejects after all...
* Memnon in ''Film/TheScorpionKing'' runs an equal opportunity and multicultural Horde.
* The gang in ''Film/DeathSentence'' is multi-ethnic.
* [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in ''Film/TheBigHit'': Hitman Melvin (white Mark Wahlberg) is suspected of betraying his employer (black Avery Brooks), who sends Cisco (mixed-race Lou Diamond Phillips) and two gunmen (one black, one East Asian) to confront him at his house. The four have a tense standoff sitting at Melvin's kitchen table, when his girlfriend's drunk father (Elliot Gould), walks in and remarks how happy he is to see four young men of different races sitting together in friendship, in contrast to his wife's rejection of Melvin as a future son-in-law for not being Jewish.
* The gangs in ''Film/TheWarriors'' are generally racially segregated except for the Warriors themselves and the Turnbull AC's who, oddly enough, are a gang of skinheads.
* In the original ''Film/AssaultOnPrecinct131976'', the gang attacking the eponymous station isn't united by race or much of anything really. The police officers even mention how weird it is. It fits though, they have no dialog and almost seem like a supernatural force.
* Averted with the all-black street gang Chance encounters in ''Film/BeingThere''.
* In the Creator/BruceLee film ''Film/WayOfTheDragon'' (aka ''Return of the Dragon''), Bruce goes to Rome to help a Chinese restaurant threatened with extortion by the local gansters. The crime boss has an effete, Chinese lackey and thugs that are both white and black ("I'd like some Chinese spare ribs!") who scare away the customers and beat up the staff. After Bruce deals with these guys, the crime boss flies in an American (Chuck Norris) to kill Bruce.
* The criminal gangs in the various ''[[Franchise/TheCrow Crow]]'' movies were pretty ethnically diverse. Even the [[BrotherSisterIncest brother/sister]] team in [[Film/TheCrow the first film]] were of different ethnicities (they were half-siblings).
* Frank White of ''Film/KingOfNewYork'' runs quite the multiracial gang, which even features women in several prominent roles. This creates conflict between him and TheMafia, which is run by a ''very'' PoliticallyIncorrectVillain.
* ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII''. While his ancestors followed a "white guys only" rule, Griff Tannen's [[HollywoodCyborg cybernetically-enhanced]] [[FiveManBand teenage gang]] includes at least one [[TokenMinority Asian]] and [[TheDarkChick a woman]].
* ''Franchise/DieHard''
** In the [[Film/DieHard first film]], besides Hans Gruber and his mostly blonde, Eurotrash henchmen, his gang of terrorist/thieves also included a nerdy black computer hacker, an Asian guy with a Fu Manchu mustache, and an American who looked a lot like Huey Lewis.
** ''Film/DieHardWithAVengeance''. While the film's villain, Simon Gruber, doesn't quite fit this trope in terms of his {{mook}}s (they're all Germans and Slavs, with a token Hungarian as second-in-command), John [=McClane=] uses this description to convince Zeus to help him. [=McClane=] lies and tells Zeus that Simon put a bomb in Harlem (he actually put it in Chinatown), saying, "This guy doesn't care about skin color even if you do.".
* In ''Film/KickAss'', Frank D'Amico's organization is comprised out of Italians, Hispanics, blacks and whites.
* In ''Film/KickAss2'' his son follows the same philosophy when he creates the Toxic Mega Cunts, [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain despite the way he talks]].
* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries''
** The members of the Brotherhood of Mutants in ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'' are very diverse. Psylocke and Quill are Asian, Arclight is Hispanic, Spike is black, and that's not even counting all the nameless {{Mooks}}.
** In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Sebastian Shaw's Hellfire Club ''appears'' multiethnic but look again and you'll see only one category; mutants. Shaw saves his racism for {{Muggles}}.
** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'' has the titular [[BigBad Apocolypse]] and his [[TheFourHorsemenOfTheApocalypse Four Horsemen]]. To put it simply, an ancient Egyptian brings about world domination with the help of an modern Egyptian woman, British woman of MixedAncestry, an American, and a Polish-Jew. As Apocalypse considers himself a [[AGodAmI god]], he likely views everyone as being equally beneath him, which is why he could care less about race or gender so long as they're strong and loyal.
* Loki's henchmen in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' seem fairly diverse racially. Where they're from is never specified though; ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} just refers to them as enemies of ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}
* ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' (and ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'') reveals that while [[spoiler:HYDRA, as an offshoot of Nazi Germany and being mostly (or entirely) composed of Germans was therefore pretty much all white back during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, these days obviously doesn't care about the ethnic or racial origins of its members. This likely reflects the position of its founder, Johann "the Red Skull" Schmidt, who was clearly dismissive of Hitler's beliefs (not to mention of Hitler).]]
** Later on, AOS reveals that [[spoiler:HYDRA is actually a multinational conspiracy stretching back millenia, of which Schmidt's operation was just a spinoff. They don't seem to give a hoot about race or gender.]]
* Played with in ''Film/DickTracy'', at least out-of-universe. While Big Boy Caprice's alliance of gangsters is almost totally monochromatic, he does include the ape-like Influence (played by Puerto Rican actor Henry Silva) and makes him the fourth-ranked member of the entire gang. (Caprice also has the female gangster Texie Garcia working for him, but she makes only a token appearance; otherwise, Caprice is ''very'' contemptuous of women.) This doesn't even include Big Boy's [[TheDragon Dragon]], Flattop, who according to legend was first drawn in the strip as a light-skinned black man (although he's played by a white actor here). Meanwhile, the only non-white "good guy" seen in the entire film is a [[AsianStoreOwner Chinese shop owner]] whom Tracy saves from Ribs Mocca.
* The raiders who invade the mall in ''Film/DawnOfTheDead1978'' are not only multiracial but also have women in their ranks fighting on equal terms with the guys. It's quite notable when you consider not only that they're a [[AllBikersAreHellsAngels Hell's Angels-ish]] biker gang, but also the racist cop in the beginning and even when the movie came out.
* In ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', the good guys' team consists entirely of white upper-class British people (barring Eggsy), and is mostly male with only one female in a relatively high profile position, while the bad guys' team includes a black BigBad, some white male mooks, and an AmbiguouslyBrown female who is not only TheDragon but clearly the most dangerous of the lot.
* The absurdly diverse group of WesternTerrorists in ''Film/DayNightDayNight'' even include a deaf bomb-maker and his Irish-accented translator.
* The gang of [[JerkJock Jerk Jocks]] who pick on Jesse and Chester in ''Film/DudeWheresMyCar'' includes a black member - more than fair, given the gang's extremely small size. They also don't like [[TheChick the lone female flunky]] of the gang getting her breasts fondled - although this has much more to do with jealousy than sensitivity, especially as said flunky ''likes'' being felt up and actually encourages Jesse and Chester to do so (not knowing that the jocks are not far away).
* ''Film/JamesBond'':
** Hugo Drax in ''Film/{{Moonraker}}'' doesn't discriminate by gender or race. The number of women and non-whites in his ranks is impressive - especially for 1979. Even more impressive that this also counts for the crew of his space station. Only very seldom does another villain in the series have such diversity in his ranks.
** SPECTRE, the NebulousEvilOrganization that 007 frequently [[Film/DrNo fights]] [[Film/FromRussiaWithLove in]] [[Film/{{Thunderball}} the]] [[Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice earlier]] [[Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService movies]] [[Film/DiamondsAreForever and]] [[Film/CasinoRoyale2006 in]] [[Film/QuantumOfSolace the]] [[Film/{{Skyfall}} rebooted]] [[Film/{{Spectre}} timeline]], is comprised of {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s, {{Corrupt Politician}}s, and TerroristsWithoutACause, among other evil factions, not to mention {{Mooks}} of different nationalities with varying ideologies, including ScaryBlackMen, DirtyCommunists, {{Evil Brit}}s, {{French Jerk}}s, WesternTerrorists, YellowPeril, former {{Nazis}}, and {{Renegade Russian}}s. Usually, they'll be be at each other's necks, but how does SPECTRE's chief, Ernst Stavro Blofeld, who is of mixed Greco-Polish heritage in the books and original films and an Austrian in ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', manage to keep the lid between the various underlings? To have women and non-whites such as Dr. No, Rosa Klebb, Raoul Silva, Osato and Helga Brandt on SPECTRE's ruling panel over the years is quite impressive, as the only thing that Blofeld cares about is the ill-gotten profits he's getting from his EvilPlan. He doesn't give a hoot about ideology, nationality, or gender, and has killed mooks of both genders regardless of the situation.
* ''[[Film/SuicideSquad2016 Suicide Squad]]'' is a downplayed example since they are all {{boxed crook}}s, but it has a cast so diverse [[UpToEleven it almost looks like a parody of the concept]]. There are two women (one of them Japanese), two Blacks (one highly mutated), a Chicano, an (American) Indian...and the only white male supervillain on the entire team isn't even American [[note]] Australian, to be precise [[/note]]! Add to this their handler is a white male soldier and their leader is BlackBossLady, and we have what may be the least Eurocentric and male comic-book movie lineup in history!
* ''Film/{{Cyberjack}}'': The terrorist villains include an EvilAlbino boss named Nassim, two generic WesternTerrorists, a black DarkActionGirl, a cowboy-hat wearing {{Eagleland}} type, and an [[AfricanTerrorists African guy]] dressed in traditional clothing.
* ''Film/{{Descendants}}'': Auradon, the land of heroes, tends to put girls into PrincessClassic roles while the Isle of the Lost, the land of villains, has complete gender equality. Jay notes in the sequel that the one thing better on the Isle is that girls aren't barred from doing anything.
* Deconstructed in ''{{Film/Drive}}'': Nino is a Jewish member of TheMafia and it seems like an example of this... until Bernie tries to criticize Nino for backstabbing the East Coast mob by saying they were like family. Nino angrily snaps that said “family” [[KickTheDog calls him a kike to his face]] and [[CondescendingCompassion still treats him like a dumb kid when he’s in his late forties]]. They see him as a TokenMinority at best, as “[[YouAreACreditToYourRace one of the good ones]]” at worst.

* In ''Literature/DragonBones'', while Ward's father is not the main villain of the novel, he's quite a jerk, and causes Ward a lot of problems. (Ward has resorted to ObfuscatingStupidity so that his father doesn't ''kill'' him). However, he seems to be very open about hiring people with good qualification; he hired his bastard (half)sister-in-law, Stala, as armsmaster, even though she is a woman and no one else would hire her after she was discovered to be a woman and kicked out of the royal army. [[spoiler: His valet, Axiel, turns out to be half-dwarf, though it is not clear whether he knew this.]] The guy in the actual villain role also employs a woman, though that is [[spoiler: most likely because she's a slave with magic abilities, and she was a present. He didn't have much choice in the matter, and she isn't a regular employee. He doesn't treat her with respect, either.]]
* EvilOverlord Sauron's empire in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' had armies of Orcs, Trolls, Uruk-Hai, Easterlings, Southrons, Haradrim, Corsairs and Wild Men. As a demigod spirit that used to not have any set form, it's all broadly the same to him. Plus we are told that he even had even more allies and trade relations beyond that. The Good Guys (outside of the heroes) consisted of the light-skinned Men of Gondor and Men of Rohan, the Elves, the ents, the dwarves, ''and'' allied nations of Men. Despite what some critics have said, some of these allied nations' folk are explicitly described as darker-skinned than the folk of Gondor. Tolkien recognized the UnfortunateImplications of having all the black and swarthy men on the evil side (in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' some fight on either side) and suggested in ''Literature/{{Unfinished Tales|of Numenor and Middleearth}}'' that the other two Wizards of the Order were at work in the distant South and East helping good folk of those races resist Sauron's domination.
* ''Literature/TheTurnerDiaries'' has, as its villains, the System, a group that espouses multiculturalism and consists of every non-white group in the country (led by the Jews). The book ends with The Order, a gang of white supremacists led by the eponymous Turner, overthrowing the System and committing genocide against all non-whites and "race traitors" in the country (and later, the ''world''). Mind you, these are the ''[[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop good guys]]''. The writer was William Luther Pierce, the former head of the white supremacist National Alliance, and it also inspired a number of white supremacist gangs and terrorist groups, including one that took its name (the Order) from that of the group in the book.
* In ''[[Literature/NightWatch Day Watch]]'', there are a group of dark wizards, called the Regin brothers, who belong to the family chronicled in Myth/NorseMythology and Wagner's Ring Cycle. While the family is of Scandinavian descent, the brothers themselves were all children adopted from poverty in various countries, and who had magical talent. So, you get [[BlackVikings black, South American, etc. vikings]].
* The eponymous ''Literature/BlackLegion'' takes anyone from any Legion, be they mutants, sorcerers, traitors, [[DemonicPossession possessed]] or, in one case, a [[HumanAliens xeno]]. This provides an interesting contrast when one remembers that the DesignatedHero [[HeroAntagonist Antagonist]], the Imperium, accepts no one who's not human, gene-pure and Emperor-worshiper.
* In the ''Literature/{{Ripliad}}'' series, Tom Ripley, the VillainProtagonist, is a textbook sociopath who for all his affability manages to destroy a number of peoples' lives. In between his villainy, he likes to go to a "workingman's bar" in the French village in which he lives. Two of the frequent customers are a far leftist and rightist who don't agree on anything except their hatred of non-white immigrants. Tom finds this racism highly offensive.
* In ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', ''the book'' goes:
--> "In principle, membership of these three groups is not hereditary. The child of Inner Party parents is in theory not born into the Inner Party. Admission to either branch of the Party is by examination, taken at the age of sixteen. Nor is there any racial discrimination, or any marked domination of one province by another. Jews, Negroes, South Americans of pure Indian blood are to be found in the highest ranks of the Party, and the administrators of any area are always drawn from the inhabitants of that area."
* PlayedWith in ''Literature/HarryPotter'': [[BigBad Voldemort's]] Death Eaters are largely driven by "blood purity" and FantasticRacism against Muggle-borns. On the other hand, it's a plot point that they build their ranks by allying with giants and werewolves, whom the ostensibly-good Ministry of Magic treats questionably at best. (Also dementors, but they [[TheSoulless really aren't people]].) On the ''other'' other hand, though, these races are still kind of second-class citizens among the Death Eaters ([[FullyEmbracedFiend Fenrir Greyback]] still can't officially join, and Voldemort openly sneers at his [[TheDragon Dragon]] having a werewolf in-law), and Voldemort's mistreatment of a [[SlaveRace house-elf]] [[EvenMooksHaveLovedOnes ultimately helps bring his downfall]].
** There doesn't seem to be any sexism among the Death Eaters. Though the majority are males, one of the most prominent Death Eaters is the female Bellatrix Lestrange and a reasonable number can be seen in the films. Moreover when the trio questions whether Dolores Umbridge or Walburga Black were Death Eaters nobody cites their sex as a problem. Even Narcissa Malfoy who isn't an official Death Eater is expected to participate in their activities on some occasions.
** Hell even Muggle-borns are allowed to join Voldemort's circle in certain cases. Lord Voldemort wanted Lily Potter to join him despite her Muggle-born status.
** WordOfGod also confirms that wizards of any moral standing generally don't care about actual race, sexuality, etc.
* In ''Literature/JonathanStrangeAndMrNorrell'', the [[TheFairFolk gentleman with thistle-down hair]] becomes fixated on a handsome black man and finds it bizarre that English society would hate him for his skin color. It all falls in line with his BlueAndOrangeMorality.
* In ''Literature/{{Everworld}},'' the [[LadyLand Amazons]] (much like the [[BlackVikings Vikings]]) are portrayed as being largely multi-ethnic, since they mate with whatever men they happen to conquer (an Everworld being a PatchworkMap, with the aforementioned Vikings and Aztecs being only a few day's sailing away from each other). Their egalitarianism is [[StrawFeminist limited to women]], of course.
* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'', the Dark Forest is made up of cats from all four Clans, which are treated like races in the series.
* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Has a few examples. In a CrapsackWorld, competency over background occasionally comes in handy, after all.
** The Brave Companions (aka the Bloody Mummers), the mercenary band of Vargo Hoat's, includes killers from all over the known world and from various class backgrounds. This includes several Westerosi, Dothraki, Dornishmen, Ibbenese, Lyseni, etc. Most are "middle class" in origin, but some come from the gutter and a couple fell from the heights. So long as you are both a competent fighter ''and'' with an AxCrazy streak of a hefty width, you are in. Of course, for this very diverse bunch, there are no female members... possibly because [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil no women would be safe around them for even three minutes]].
** The Faith of R'hllor is characterized by its [[TheFundamentalist brutal fundamentalism]] and [[KillItWithFire burning unbelievers at the stake]]. It also promotes gender and racial equality with [[LadyOfBlackMagic Melisandre]] and [[ScaryBlackMan Moqorro]] as its members, and take anyone in regardless of background. It often bulks its ranks by buying slaves and training them up for the priesthood. It's emancipation. Of a sort.
** While [[AntiVillain not exactly evil]], Stannis Baratheon has a very unpopular reputation as an EvilOverlord. He also relies on a very diverse crew (something he is sneered at by his rivals) with aforementioned Melisandre as a foreigner priestess, privateers from Essos and his [[TheLancer second-in-command]] being a former smuggler turned landed knight. He is also the first monarch to accept Wildlings into his ranks, though admittedly under strict conditions.
* In Jon Land's ''The Council Of Ten'', the BigBad plans to hold a meeting with the leaders of the ten strongest terrorist organizations in the world, and convince them that while they may make noise about advancing their religious or ethnic or ideological groups, what they're ''really'' after is simply power; and that if they all unite under him, they'll be strong enough to take it. The heroes crash the conference before anything can be decided.
* The ''Literature/AgeOfFire'''s Red Queen is willing to draw her minions from all races and species (even those she [[FantasticRacism looks down on]]), in sharp contrast to previous BigBad [[ANaziByAnyOtherName the Wyrmmaster]].
** [[AntiVillain The Copper]] doesn't think much of the hominid races (to be fair, he has [[FreudianExcuse pretty good reasons]]), but that doesn't stop him from employing any and all of them as servants, even going so far as ending a long-standing feud with the demen by getting them to agree to serve as the Dragon Empire's EliteMooks. And he'll even employ creatures considered vermin (such as bats and rats), since he finds them useful.
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'':
** The [[MurderInc Assassins' Guild]] is this, at least with respect to admitting women and all human ethnicities. There hasn't been any mention on their policy towards non-humans, although [[FantasticRacism if it's like Ankh-Morpork as a whole]] they may not let them in.
** That said, one gag has a troll joining a dwarf gang when dwarfs and trolls ''hate'' each other. Carrot tentatively suggests this is a step for progress, although perhaps it's simply that the troll happens to like beating up other trolls.
* ''The Annihilation Score'', sixth book in ''Literature/TheLaundryFiles'' and a novel-length parody of the superhero genre, briefly discusses the UnfortunateImplications around this trope. The book itself averts it, as the plot is mostly moved by one particular supervillain.
-->"Superman, Iron Man, Batman, you name it. Rich, powerful, white alpha males who dress up in gimp suits and beat up ethnically diverse lower class criminals."
* The serial killer Jack Mort in ''Literature/{{The Drawing of the Three}}'', the second book of ''Literature/{{The Dark Tower}}'' series. Partway through the book, Odetta tells the story of how a brick fell onto her head from a building in New York when she was a young child. Since Odetta was a black girl in the 1940s, her father thought the brick might have been pushed down towards her by a racist. Later, after Jack Mort is introduced, it is revealed that he was the one who pushed the brick. The narrator explains that Mort was an "equal opportunity killer" and didn't do it out of racism - he simply got a thrill from trying to kill people.
* The federal government in ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' is a multi-ethnic, anti-racist [[TheEmpire empire]] that consciously practices this, with even cabinet officers selected for "representation" rather than competence. After its downfall, the new villains who take its place generally avert this, however, as each race and sectional interest tends to coalesce in its own successor state.
* ''Literature/VillainsByNecessity'': A running theme throughout the book is that the villains don't really hold personal points against you for any reason as long as you can get results, while the heroes tend to be (at best) patronizing to anything that doesn't quite fall inside their worldview. Our heroes are a RagTagBunchOfMisfits of varying races and backgrounds that manage to get along and form friendships. The world's heroes, whoever, have been [[AlwaysChaoticEvil wiping out evil races]], [[BrainwashingForTheGreaterGood slowly eliminating all dissenting and "disruptive" opinions,]] and hunting down creatures [[NonMaliciousMonster who they've labeled as evil.]] Kaylana especially is regularly mocked by the heroes for being a Druid and following a "backward" religion that insists on balance as opposed to good destroying evil.
* ''Literature/VampirosDoRioDouro'': The titular vampires were seven men that made a deal with the Devil to gain immortality and demonic powers. Five of them were Portuguese (two aristocrats, three commoners), one of them was a Spanish merchant and the other was an African slave. In spite of his background and race, the latter is still treated as an equal by his "brothers" since becoming a vampire transcends all race as they are all one of the same kind

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Since ''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]'' focuses on matters of terrorism, a rather sensitive topic these days, the producers are wary of staying on any particular race or nationality of villain for too long. Sure, Islamic Arabs have come up in more than one season, but usually not two seasons in a row, and usually it is revealed about halfway into the season that they're actually just Mooks in a larger plan. The larger plan will be headed either by a whiter nation or some rogue Americans--something that itself has been criticized ("Look, if you're going to portray Arab Muslims as the enemy, do you ''have'' to make them subordinate to some white guy?"). At the very least, there are always a few Americans in the villain's employ. Also, expect a balancing {{Aesop}} to even things out when the producers feel guilty about who the villain is.
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Tywin Lannister doesn't care if you're a man or a woman; he cares whether or not you are StupidEvil.
* Along with WesternTerrorists, used ''a lot'' by earlier seasons of ''Series/{{Spooks}}''. Probably the most JustForFun/{{egregious}} example is the fictitious terrorist group Shining Dawn.
* The Goa'uld of ''Series/StargateSG1'' generally pose as Egyptian Gods, and while there are a number of dark-skinned hosts and Jaffa, they also have lighter-skinned races and cultures, including Goa'uld posing as Chinese and Greek gods. Which makes perfect sense for the Goa'uld - they grab host bodies from whatever's around but their identity doesn't change. After all, we 'all look alike to them'.
* ''Series/BlakesSeven'' regularly featured women in high-ranking roles in the evil Federation, most notably Supreme Commander Servalan.
* The gang that forms out of the Level 5 escapees on ''Series/{{Heroes}}''.
* In ''Series/{{Charmed}}'', the [[spoiler:''Second'']] [[BigBad Source of All Evil]] has a pretty diverse group of underlings. Pretty much the only bad guys he didn't accept in his group were vampires and harpies; he originally let the harpies into his group, but then one of them tried to kill [[spoiler:his wife]]. After that, he cut them out (and cut ''off'' their leader's hand). The vampires, however, had a [[VampireMonarch queen]] who refused to serve him.
* ''Space Cops'' is set on a planet with 3 species: humans, blues and crocs. Both cops and criminals were equal opportunity employers and to emphasize the point, each week, the criminal gang was led by a committee of 3, one of each species. One episode, the Crime of the Week was racism, so TPTB had to invent a 4th species of SpaceJews for the criminals to be racist at. The worst thing is that the 4th species never appeared in any subsequent episodes. Therefore, the cops defeated ONE gang of ThoseWackyNazis, but ultimately, the Space Nazis won.
* In ''Series/TheWire'', the shadowy criminal known as "The Greek" employs the Greek Spiros "Vondas" Vondopoulos, the Ukrainian Sergei Malatov, the Russian Ilona Petrovich, and the Israeli Eton Ben-Eleazar, among others, and he deals with the Polish-American Frank Sobotka and the African-American drug kingpin Prop Joe. And in the end, [[spoiler:he wasn't even Greek]].
* ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire'' places some emphasis on the willingness of gangsters at the time to work with different racial and ethnic groups. Nucky Thompson is an Irish Catholic politician/gangster and he walks a fine line between appeasing the racist [[=WASP=]] political elite and supporting the working class blacks whose votes he needs to win elections. On the criminal front his organization mostly consist of crooked Irish cops and politicians but he is closely allied with Chalky White's black gang. In Chicago he has strong contacts among the Italian gangsters and in New York he has an uneasy relationship with the Jewish Arnold Rothstein. Rothstein's primary mooks are the Italian Lucky Luciano and the Jewish Mayer Lansky who are best of friends and just like their mentor have no hangups about doing business with other ethnicities.
* The ''Series/AlienNation'' TV series had a [[FantasticRacism multiethnic human-supremacist group.]]
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'': While your mileage may vary on how evil the Peacekeepers are as a whole, they are often the bad guys and they are quite diverse. Mixed gender battle groups, plenty of female officers, a rainbow of colors (including several not found in humans)...pretty much the only thing they don't allow are non-Sebaceans (Scorpius is VERY special.)
* Zig-Zagged in ''Series/CriminalMinds'', the vast majority of [=UnSubs=] are white males, much like RealLife serial killers who are overwhelmingly part of that demographic, but there have been a decent number of female [=UnSubs=] and a handful of minority [=UnSubs=].
* This is a big part of what makes the titular gang in ''Series/SonsOfAnarchy'' [[ALighterShadeOfGray the easiest biker gang in the show to actually like]]. They commit some undeniably heinous crimes over the course of the series, but they're also the most diverse gang in Charming. In contrast to the all-Latino Mayans, the all-Black Niners and the White Supremacist Nords, the Sons freely accept a Jewish member (Bobby) and a Latino member ("Juice") into their upper ranks, and the earliest episodes have them cooperating with [[TheCommissionerGordon Black sheriff Vic Trammell]].
* Although Carmine Falcone's organization on ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' had the general trappings and stereotypes--and indeed was supposed to be--the standard Italian-American mafia family, in practice it included Asian, Russian, and Irish gangsters, not to mention that Fish Mooney, a black woman, was widely understood to be one of his top lieutenants. His top enforcer/hitman, Victor Zsasz, aside from not being Italian either had a multi-ethnic AmazonBrigade of assistants.

[[folder:Music Videos]]
* The Music/MichaelJackson videos "Beat It" and "Bad" both have multi-ethnic streetgangs on the verge of fighting each other before going into heavily choreographed dance numbers instead.
** Also applies to the Weird Al Yankovic parodies of each video.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Wrestling/TheNationOfDomination originally conceived in USWA had all the trappings of a black power group, except that [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy 5 out of eight]] members [[BoomerangBigot were white men]]. Later versions of the stable in other promotions had considerably larger ratios of black membership but almost all of them still had {{token white}} guys.
* Wrestling/{{AAA}} had successive examples in Lucha Libre Latina, luchadors of several sexual preferences and economic backgrounds trying to takeover the company, who were pushed out by La Legion Extranjera, who had some kind of representative for almost every world culture as a member at some point, who were then [[LegionOfDoom absorbed into]] La Sociedad, an alliance so big it contained most of an entire rival promotion's roster, which still only accounted for roughly 1/3rd of it.
* Similarly, the suspiciously named BLKOUT stable seemed to be named after it's large black membership if you looked in Wrestling/{{CZW}}, Wrestling/ProWrestlingGuerilla or IZW but looking through ''all'' the promotions it existed in reveals membership was surprisingly diverse, with Wrestling/{{Chikara}}'s splinter being almost all white and several Latin Americans of various shades and ethnic identities spread around.
* The Rottweilers were another multi promotional stable ranging from the very white Bison, the not quite as white Wrestling/LowKi and Grim Reefer, the fairly brown Cubans Ricky Reyes and Rocky Romero, browner Puerto Rican Homicide, darker still Jamaican Slugga and very dark Julius Smokes.
* Wrestling/TAKAMichinoku's version of Roughly Obsess And Destroy didn't just include men of different races and nationalities running over the Wrestling/{{All Japan|ProWrestling}} and Wrestling/ProWrestlingNOAH rosters but also of more than one sexuality, as RO&D had Wrestling/RicoConstantino among their ranks. They would pull a collective HeelFaceTurn after TARU introduced the Voodoo Murders, who demonstrated they were {{eviler|thanthou}} than RO&D [[MakeWayForTheNewVillains by trying to take them out]] but were [[EvilCounterpart just as equal opportunity in their membership]].
* Prince Nana is Ashanti Royalty who claims to abuse the people of Ghana. Over the years his Embassy in Wrestling/RingOfHonor has featured Canadians, Swiss, a Sicilian and an Englishman alongside several US natives.
* World Elite in Wrestling/{{TNA}}. A Canadian leading three British men, a Japanese man, a Puerto Rican and a guy from Detroit against USA.
* The Apostles Of Hell in SMASH consisted of Michael Kovac(Austria), Gabriel Antonik(Norway), Lin "Bitch" Bairon(China) and Sir Robin(Belgium).
* Wrestling/BulletClub wouldn't seem to fit at first glance, a stable made in tribute the American style of wrestling that is openly dismissive of puroresu values, but said "American" stable was founded by an [[Wrestling/FergalDevitt Irishman]] with two Tongans and later picked up a Japanese man, a Canadian, and another Tongan. And that's just the main Wrestling/{{New Japan|ProWrestling}} group, as there was an entire Latin American branch in Wrestling/{{CMLL}}, mostly lead by the decidedly not Latin Tama Tonga.
* Despite taking inspiration from a very isolationist period of history, Kimura Monster gun did not lose it's cosmopolitan tendencies after being turned into Oedo~tai. The two groups have featured not just Japanese but also a German, residents from Spain, the UK and USA of varies pigments and identities and two Mexicans, all unified in taking over World Wonder Ring STARDOM.[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'':
** Chaos accepts/corrupts everyone, regardless of gender, race, age, ability, social standing, or species (though the main species other than humans are conveniently resistant or immune); as long as you can prove yourself to the Dark Gods, magnificent and terrible power is yours for the taking. It's part of the reason so many willingly defect from the Imperium, as at least Chaos gives you a ''chance'' of improving your lot in life.
** While [[TheEmpire the Imperium]] is rigidly classist, [[FantasticRacism xenophobic]] to the core, and being a "mutant" will get you executed at best, they will hire any colour of human at all ([[HumansAreWhite when the colours that aren't describable as "white" appear, at least]]) as well as accepted Abhuman variants like Ogryn or Ratlings, and women are in every position available, from Guardsmen (Guardswomen?) to Planetary Governors to [[StateSec Inquisitors]].
** The Tau have a British Empire sort of deal - they'll hire anyone from the worlds they've conquered, but colonials will get a bit of a rough deal.
** The Dark Eldar Archons are not really picky about who they let in to their royal court so long as they can be trusted. This actually means that the majority of ''their own race'' is disqualified, since the Dark Eldar are an entire race of [[TheStarscream Starscreams]].
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'':
** Stock incompetent villains of ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'', Zhentarim. They're bad, sometimes mad, used to serve a God Of {{Evil Overlord}}s and ended up with a pair of even worse ones. But their armies and poisoned knives work for a simple strategical purpose: power to ''control the trade''. As such, The Black Network is understanding as to the strange tastes of its subsidiaries, but [[http://www.wizards.com/dnd/article.asp?x=fr/fx20010403e when]] things like [[FantasticRacism hostility to nonhumans]] threaten the trade, Zhent high-ups remind the locals their style is about "AnOfferYouCantRefuse", not "A StronglyWordedLetter". For that matter, an elf Ashemmi is one of their top-ranked wizards and Sememmon's consort.
*** Xanathar's Thieves' Guild (actually, more slavers than thieves): [[http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/CnD/144.jpg here]] you can see their high-ups including beholder (or rather [[LargeAndInCharge Elder Orb]]) boss, a dwarf and a half-drow, the rest of the bunch are humans. Not depicted: doppleganger (or is it?), half-orc, gargoyle.
** The humanoid tribes from TabletopGame/{{Mystara}}'s Broken Lands, though each is numerically dominated by a specific majority race, often include substantial minorities of other D&D humanoids.
** A somewhat tongue-in-cheek editorial in an old issue of ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'' magazine pointed this out as a benefit of having devils and demons in D&D: they make great villainous equal-opportunity employers because they honestly couldn't care less what their "native" agents on the Prime Material Plane look like as long as they serve their purpose.
** The Five Nations of TabletopGame/{{Eberron}} are rather integrated, at least among the common humanoid races, so several villainous groups (such as the Emerald Claw or some Dragon Below cults) have a nicely varied make-up as well. The Inspired rulers of Riedra are also fairly unbiased in their general oppression, settling for mere dictatorial tyranny over anyone who bows down to them and cold extermination for anyone who doesn't.
* Some of the street gangs in TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}} accept a diverse mix of ethnicities and/or metatypes, often because they're united by their [[GangOfHats Hats]] rather than their backgrounds (e.g. all-decker gangs).
* In ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'', the Wyrm isn't choosy about those he recruits into his ranks. Corrupted shapeshifters, spirits, and humans of all backgrounds are welcome.
* In ''TabletopGame/SirenTheDrowning'', the [[ApocalypseCult Current of Acheron]] is noted to be very lax in who they recruit, accepting any Siren as long as they are willing to embrace their StrawNihilist ideology. They do it mostly out of PragmaticVillainy: because few people are insane enough to want the destruction of the world, [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating they are hated by pretty much everyone]] and [[EvilVersusOblivion even other Abyssal Currents want them dead]], so they can't afford to be picky about who they recruit.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* This is the founding principle of Hebijo Academy from ''VideoGame/SenranKagura'': "Where good favors few, evil accepts all". In other words, they'll take anybody who pays the entrance fee while good shinobi academies only accept those who have a clean record and are already training to be ninja. Of course, this means that Hebijo gets the drop-outs, losers, psychos, and people who wandered in off the street, so they have to compensate with TrainingFromHell.
** Hebijo has no problem whatsoever admitting student who enroll ''openly intending to murder'' another student. If a student who's been there longer can't guard against such assassinations, it's their own damn fault. Shinovi Versus reveals this even extends to teachers.
** It's worth noting that "evil" here is [[GreyAndGreyMorality a borderline misnomer]]. "Evil" Shinobi just take corporate contracts when they graduate instead of government ones.
* Many of the evil organisations in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', to the point that the racist organisations like the Scarlet Crusade or the Grimtotem are the ''exception''. Criminal organisations such as the Defias Brotherhood, the Venture Co. or the Bloodsail pirates employ members from the Alliance (mostly humans) and the Horde (orcs, Forsaken...) as well as non-aligned races (ogres, gnolls) as mercenaries, while cults like the Shadow Council, the Cult of the Damned, the Wyrmcult or the Twilight's Hammer accept anybody fanatic/hungry for power/nihilist or stupid enough to join them. This can lead to some FridgeLogic when overwhelmingly good races like the [[AlwaysLawfulGood Draenei]] show up as members of the Twilight's Hammer or the Cult of the Damned.
* ''VideoGame/EvilGenius'' takes this into an interesting combination. Henchmen can indeed be picked from anywhere in the world, but the [[YouAllLookFamiliar limited number of models]] means that minions all look identical. However, clicking and zooming on a minion gives a mini biography, and shows that each has a different name and last name, many are Anglo-Saxon, Latin, and Asian. Clearly, the Evil Genius may be a heartless power seeker, willing to execute minions [[YouHaveFailedMe at the drop of a hat]], but (s)he values diversity, or at least [[BadBoss regards everyone else with equal contempt]]. Lampshaded in-game, where a couple of the Acts of Infamy point out that the Evil Organization is equal-opportunity, and thus will spread pain and misery in equal amounts to everyone. One mission involves burning down a national park, if only because "we've been focusing on urban mayhem lately."
** Subverted in one of the endings where the Evil Genius's plan is to ''turn all dissidents into clones of him''.
* The Nazis in ''VideoGame/{{Bloodrayne}}'' are surprisingly diverse for, well, [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazis]]. Their leadership includes among their ranks two women (one of whom is Asian), a pair of disabled people, a freakish 10-foot-tall cyborg, and an 80-year old man.
* Once, the ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' developers held a poll as to whether they should add more gender equality to enemy groups, or simply add more, different enemy groups to the game. The latter won out in the end, and most players think the groups have enough gender and racial diversity to fit them thematically- while street gangs and {{Mafia}} and {{Yakuza}}-ish syndicates tend to be boys-only clubs in RealLife (with a few exceptions), the Crey Corporation is as politically correct as you'd expect an EvilCorporation to be (and the CorruptCorporateExecutive running the whole show is female), the Arachnos army has plenty of men and women on the front lines, and the heroic paramilitary Longbow corps and Vanguard are both run by women and staffed by many. And as of a recent issue, even ''Ancient Romans'' have female soldiers in the ranks.
* ''Franchise/MetalGear'': Throughout. The very first QuirkyMinibossSquad contained two Russians, a Brit, a German, an Inuit, and an American, and from then on teams get even weirder. In context, probably Dead Cell are the strangest, with an openly bisexual Romanian and a black woman as the two team leaders in what was originally a [=SEALs=] unit.
* Most gangs in the ''VideoGame/SaintsRow'' series have male and female members (the exception being the all-male Luchadores), but typically limit themselves to one race with maybe some outliers among the basic {{Mooks}}. The Saints seem to be the sole racially diverse gang, even among the higher ranks, and of course they are definitely the only gang that is willing to accept as its leader [[VirtualPaperDoll a morbidly obese, mohawked, bearded man with neon green skin who walks around in nothing but a lacy bra and panties that perfectly compliment his rough Cockney accent]]. Yes, even ''despite'' the fact that [[ComicallyMissingThePoint green has been the colour of two enemy gangs so far]].
* Villains in the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' series are known to contain a variety of different evil minions. The most famous being of course, Bowser, whose Mooks include giant mushrooms, giant turtles, evil man-eating plants, squids of varying sizes, evil fish, ghosts, and some games have enemies unique to them.
* Similar to Bowser, Ganon's army in the ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' is made up of not just similar beings like gerudo, or moblins, but virtually every animal, or monstrous being in Hyrule. Most notable in ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'' where the Dark Forces have a slew of different monsters that their armies can mix and match for a variety of different army setups. In contrast, the Hyrulean Forces simply use Hylian and Goron soldiers as troops.
* In ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'', Dracula's evil army contains the undead, classic horror monsters, virtually every mythological monster you can think of, and various other enemies that all fit into other categories. Oh, and ''[[TheGrimReaper Death]]'', [[TheDragon of course]].
* The Warlock/Dungeon town in ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic'' contains a wide variety of creatures of the course of the series, which include harpies, minotaurs, centaurs, hydras, hot dark elves, and their signature unit, dragons. The Barbarians of I and II were also somewhat free in their hiring, featuring goblins, orcs, trolls, ogres, cyclopes and wolves (and a large number of human heroes) - all traditional [[TheHorde horde-related creatures]], but better than just undead. III removed the barbarians/Stronghold from the evil camp, and the new [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Inferno]] town wasn't quite so inclusive[[note]]But more inclusive than it might seem at first glance, the RPG series revealing that efreet, gogs and imps (and probably hellhounds, as well) were not invading aliens that arrived in a Night of Shooting Stars.[[/note]]
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', [[TheDragon Arl Howe's]] servants include qunari mercenaries, elves and even mages. The latter two are both heavily discriminated against in the setting. In fact, Howe doesn't seem to care who he employs, so long as they're … morally flexible. (As one city guard says, Howe's men are "worse than the criminals we arrest. Some of them ARE the criminals we arrest.") He doesn't actually think any higher of elves than the average human in the setting, dismissing them as "animals" if the City Elf Warden confronts him with what he had done to the Alienage.
** Tevinter, the local EvilEmpire [[TheMagocracy Magocracy]], was built on the backs of innumerable [[EnslavedElves elven slaves]] and are still heavily involved in clandestine operations to kidnap or covertly buy elves from the officially slave free south. But they gladly will, and do, enslave people from any race. It's just that elves, being second-class citizens at best, are much easily acquired and much of their original slave "stock" descends from the survivors of fallen Arlathan. Elven Magisters are uncommon but far from unheard of, and we even meet an elven Tevinter soldier who identifies as a Tevinter first and an elf second.
** Though not overtly evil as Tevinter due to BlueAndOrangeMorality, the Qunari have played an antagonistic role in the series and they were accepting of anyone who converts to their faith, whether its human or elf they will be referred as qunari as well. In fact, elves tend to convert to the Qun more easily since it offers a better opportunity in life than either in Tevinter or the South. By contrast, the Qunari are highly prejudiced against magic users and go to truly horrific measures to restrain or kill anyone able to use magic.
* The {{Colonel Badass}}es from ''[[VideoGame/JustCause Just Cause 2]]'' have Chinese, Indians and Malays in their numbers, if the names are any indication.
* Mad King Ashnard of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]'' was said to hire any powerful men without regard for their backgrounds or motives, in accordance with his SocialDarwinist beliefs. He's an odd example because he does seem to personally be racist (he uses the subhuman slur at various points in the game) but has no qualms about working with Laguz such as Ena and [[spoiler: Nasir]] as well as the [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Feral Ones]] out of appreciation for their strength. He even [[spoiler: took a Dragon Laguz as his wife, albeit solely based on his belief that she would bear him a powerful heir]]. He also has at least one [[HalfHumanHybrid Branded]], [[spoiler: Petrine]], under his command, and shows no ill will toward her for it, though it's unclear if he knows what she is or not. This extends to other humans as well, as Sothe mentions he has no problem with recruiting lower class citizens into his army as long as they're capable (something that was noted to be uncommon for the setting) and employs the BlackKnight despite having no clue as to his identity or motives based solely on the fact that the man can get results.
* ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' plays this seemingly straight for the 11th century [[AncientConspiracy Templars]], featuring both Arabs and European Crusaders in their ranks. However, it's downplayed in the spinoff sequel ''Bloodlines'', where former [[ActionGirl high-ranking Templar Maria]] has now lost her status and is pretty much hunted, since she no longer has Robert de Sable to keep her in despite the No Women Allowed rule.
** In the sequels and other games in the franchise however it appears the Templars have greatly expanded their equal opportunity employment, which is especially impressive since the games take place in extremely socially reactionary historical time periods such as the [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII American Revolution]] and [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate Victorian London]]. ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate'' shows this best with the Templars having male and female agents and leaders in seemingly equal numbers. Of course, the modern day Templars are even more egalitarian, naturally.
** Ironically, its revealed in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedOrigins'' that the Templars' predecessors, the Order of the Ancients, were just as egalitarian as their distant future counterparts, since they employed Egyptians, Greeks and Romans of both genders into their group. In fact, one of the reasons their leaders spare TheHero Bayek (a black Egyptian) was because they hoped [[WeCanRuleTogether he'd come around and join them]].
* The racist FirstPersonShooter ''VideoGame/EthnicCleansing'' has you fighting a force composed of black, Latino and Jewish enemies. Like the ''Literature/TheTurnerDiaries'' example above (the game contains a speech by that book's writer as an EasterEgg), the enemies are depicted as evil ''because'' they are equal opportunity. This trope also crops up in the SpiritualSuccessor ''White Law'', which is primarily an AuthorTract railing against multiculturalism and race-mixing.
* ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'' and [[VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle its sequel]] feature very diverse enemies in terms of ethnicity, lifestyle, etc. In between the two, they included an old Soviet Cosmonaut, a black girl with a Japanese name, a straight-up Japanese man, an English schoolgirl, an all-American quarterback, a character actor, a Polish magician, a German punk-rock star, a black Irish cult leader, and an amputee/fashion model/marine, just to name a few.
* Goblins in ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' frequently kidnap children of other races, and raise them as productive goblin citizens who advance [[KlingonPromotion normally in goblin society]] and abide by goblin societal norms. This can reach such an extreme as to circle into inversion, in which none of the members of a goblin community are goblin by blood, and may be homogeneously elves, humans or even dwarves. The only exception is one aversion; only full blooded goblins seem to become priests, and they may be the only racial goblins present at a nominally goblin settlement.
* In ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'', despite being based in a Chinese city [[spoiler:and explicitly being under the control of a Triad leader]], the Harvester street gang has a large amount of American accented [[ScaryBlackMan Scary Black Men]] (who ironically call ''Jensen'' "gwailo" or "laowai", Chinese racist terms for "foreigner"). Also, the five main bad guys you face are composed of an Afro-Russian, a Southern-American, an Israeli super-soldier, a [[spoiler:Chinese business woman and a knighted Englishman.]] Evil comes in many flavors.
* In ''VideoGame/SwordOfTheStars II'', a single pirate encounter can see you facing craft from all the different racial factions.
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Throughout the series, this is true of the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]]. While they technically operate under their own BlueAndOrangeMorality while being AboveGoodAndEvil, most are quite malevolent in their dealings with mortals and are thus, considered evil. While there are a few instances where a particular Daedric Prince seems to ''favor'' a specific race (Malacath toward the [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]] or Azura toward the [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmer]], for example) almost all accept worship from any mortal race willing to give it to them. One exception is Namira, who ''hates'' attractive people and has outright refused the worship of people she does not [[BodyHorror find revolting enough]].
** [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampirism]], a creation of [[GodOfEvil Molag Bal]], Daedric Prince of [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Domination and Corruption, aka "The King of Rape"]], is also equal opportunity. It is a disease that can be contracted by any member of the mortal races. However, whether the infected individual is accepted by ''other'' Vampires is a different story, however...
** Likewise, this is true for [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent were-creatures]] as well. Any member of any of the playable races can become a were-creature, a disease which was created by Hircine, the Daedric Prince of [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame the Hunt]].
** [[TheOrder The Order of the Black Worm]], a cultish and reclusive MagicalSociety founded by the legendary/infamous necromancer Mannimarco devoted to the study of TheDarkArts, is remarkably accepting. When initially forming the Order, Mannimarco sought out Mages Guild defectors, witches, [[BarbarianTribe Reachmen]], [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedra]] [[ReligionOfEvil worshipers]], various other rogue magic users, and even attempted to ally with the Sload of Thras, who are usually killed on sight in Tamriel tracing back to the [[MysticalPlague Thrassian Plague]] they unleashed in the 1st Era which killed over half of Tamriel's population.
** The [[MurderInc Dark]] [[ReligionOfEvil Brotherhood]] is surprisingly very open. As long as you're willing to kill on command and have some skill in doing so, the Dark Brotherhood will welcome you regardless of race or gender. Throughout the series, members have included [[LizardFolk Argonians]] raised as {{Tyke Bomb}}s, Vampires, Werewolves, a [[CatFolk Khajiit]] sorcerer, a [[HighlyVisibleNinja not-so-stealthy]] Orc, an elderly wizard who strongly believes that ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill, and many others. There is also relative equality when it comes to the genders of the members as well.
** Likewise, the ThievesGuild does not discriminate based on race or gender. If you're a capable thief and are willing to follow the [[HonorAmongThieves Guild's]] [[PragmaticVillainy rules]], you're welcome to join.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''
*** The [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Thalmor]] and the [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized Forsworn]], while genocidally racist, appear to have pretty liberal views on gender. The Thalmor ambassador to Skyrim is a woman, and you'll encounter plenty of female Thalmor soldiers and wizards in the wild. They also apparently have no qualms with employing other races, as the ambassador has a Wood Elf as a servant and a Khajiit as a cook, and a Thalmor assassin [[spoiler: you end up killing for the aforementioned Wood Elf]] is also a Khajiit. The Forsworn also have female warriors and mages that are no less [[DemonicSpiders murderous]] than their male allies.
*** The Empire, from the perspective of the Stormcloaks, is this. Although from the Stormcloaks' perspective, the diversity of Imperial forces is actually a ''downside,'' since they think the only people who should be ruling in Skyrim are [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Nords.]]
* Cerberus in the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' franchise is this from a Doylist perspective, but is quite the [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain opposite trope]] from a Watsonian perspective. To elaborate, Cerberus is a human survivalist/supremacist group in a galaxy full of sentient races that have established United Nations-esque diplomatic relations with each other (mostly). Naturally, the Cerberus agenda to "look out for human interests" and "put humankind on top" is abhorrently racist InUniverse (just replace "human" with "Aryan" to see how this looks). However, from a RealLife perspective, Cerberus is quite progressive, with male and female operatives of all nationalities, ethnicities, and sexual orientations working together.
** Also, the only time you'll see people of multiple species working together in an organized capacity outside of C-Sec or the ''Normandy'' crew is in the galaxy's mercenary gangs and crime syndicates, such as the Blue Suns, Eclipse, and Aria's organization on Omega. By far the friendliest interactions between [[FantasticRacism humans and batarians or turians and krogan]] occur in this context.
* In ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'':
** the Lin Kuei seem to be this; they ally with Shao Kahn and the prominent Lin Kuei we see are from various backgrounds, such as Sektor (Chinese), Cyrax (Botswanan), Bi-Han (original Sub-Zero/Noob Saibot) and Kwai Liang (second Sub-Zero) (both Chinese-American), and Smoke (Czech).
** In fact, the bad guys in ''9'' are an overall fantastical version of this. Shao Kahn's Outworld forces include Kitana and Jade (Edenians, though they both defect), Reptile (Saurian), Baraka (Tarkatan), Shang Tsung and Kano (Humans, the former Chinese and the latter Australian), Goro, Kintaro, and Sheeva (Shokan), Mileena (Edenian/Tarkatan hybrid), and have a strategic alliance with the Netherrealm, which include Quan Chi (Demon), and Noob Saibot (Wraith). It's even more diverse considering the Lin Kuei are allies with them, who are all cyborgs from various Earth backgrounds. This trope is {{Justified}} for a couple of reasons. The first being that Shao Kahn is a conqueror who has taken over many different realms and cultures, and utilizes them to his advantage. The second is that he has a [[AGodAmI god complex]], and likely views everyone else as being equally inferior.
* In ''VideoGame/GuildWars2'', while many of the villainous groups are racially-exclusive (and in the case of the Flame Legion and the Sons of Svanir, only accept men), both the regular seafaring pirates and the [[SkyPirate Aetherblades]] are very diverse, much like pirate crews in real life.
* In ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'', while YHVH is a KnightTemplar MadGod, he is utterly consumed by his desire for egalitarianism. His subordinates, not really understanding his will, have occasionally fostered the birth of several highly classist societies. The moment He sees what's going on, all of that is ''immediately'' thrown out of the window en lieu of an effort to make ''everyone'' equal.
* The [[EvilInc Umbrella Corporation]] of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'' makes it quite clear on [[http://residentevil.wikia.com/Wanted_Ad several]] [[http://residentevil.wikia.com/Regulations_for_Trainees occasions]] that they don't care what color, gender, or flavor you are so long as you meet their [[PlayingWithSyringes decidedly]] [[TestedOnHumans evil]] [[MadScientist criteria]] for employment.
* ''Franchise/CarmenSandiego'''s V.I.L.E. has boasted villains of all ages, genders, nationalities, and even a couple who weren't human - and of course, their leader is a Hispanic woman herself (assuming that is her real name and not just an alias). However, in most cases, Carmen seems to only employ villains with {{Punny Name}}s.
* In ''VideoGame/SplinterCellBlacklist'', the Engineers are mentioned to be borderless. While most of the higher-ups are Arabs, their leader is British, and the regular mercenaries include Americans, Arabs, British, Mexicans, and Russians. While you don't encounter any female Engineers in-game, it is implied in the Gone Dark missions that female Engineers do exist.
* ''VideoGame/StarCraft'' has two particular subversions of this trope:
** The [[TheWarOfEarthlyAggression UED]] includes a frenchman and a russian among its officers, they hesitate very little before accepting Confederate remains offering to join them ([=DuGalle=] does expresses disdain against them, but for [[LesCollaborateurs different reasons than their background]]) and the two new units they bring to the table are both AlwaysFemale. The subversion comes from the informations provided in manuals, which reveal they ''are'' racist in a different way: their government back on Earth abolished things such as religion and cultural ethnicity, they banished to space all those who couldn't conform to the norm (which resulted in the main Terran faction of the game), and they believe HumanityIsSuperior, meaning they treat the two alien species of the setting with disdain and intend to enslave or exterminate both of them.
** [[GodOfEvil Amon]] is willing to recruit anyone to serve his ambitions, so his forces include the Mobius Fondation (Terrans), the Tal'darim (Protoss), feral Zerg he took over. The subversion is that he actually despises all of them as much as he despises everyone else, and fully intend to pull a YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness on all of them once they are of no more use to him: the only species he actually wants as his servants are his [[spoiler:Zerg-Protoss Hybrids]]. This actually ends up biting him in the ass, since [[spoiler:the Tal'darim end up pulling a HeelFaceTurn when they find out about it.]]
* ''VideoGame/FarCry4'' has the Royal Army of [[TheCaligula Pagan Min]], who unlike the Golden Path resistance opposing him has many women in it while the Golden Path has very few, and their previous leader (and father of the protagonist, Ajay) Mohan had an extreme StayInTheKitchen attitude that had lethal consequences in the backstory of the game. Pagan also casually comments that he has no problem with homosexuality (while mentioning that he is frequently MistakenForGay but not particularly bothered by this) and by implication accepts openly gay members in his organization.
* In ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'', the East Europan Imperial Alliance army under Prince Maximilian is this. Prince Maximilian accepts anyone skillful in his ranks no matter who they are as shown by some of his commanders which includes Selvaria Bles, a woman and a Valkyria, Radi Jaeger, a General from a nation that was once enemies with the Empire and Dahau, a Darcsen (their universe's equivalent of Jews), a race that the Empire dislikes, unlike his Gallian counterpart General Georg von Damon, who is both sexist and a Darcsen hater. Thus when he learns [[spoiler:Princess Cordelia gi Randgriz is not a Valkyria but a Darcsen, he still doesn't mind and still wants to marry her since she's still the legitimate ruler of Gallia]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'':
** NebulousEvilOrganization Talon are the primary antagonists. They allow members of any gender, race, nationality, creed, and species. The five playable representatives so far are Reaper, Doomfist, Widowmaker, Sombra and Moira; a Latin-American, a Nigerian, a Frenchwoman, a Mexican and an Irishwoman respectively.
** MegaCorp Vishkar is another antagonistic faction. They started in Southern India and include members of both sexes, and also include members from all over the world.
** Los Muertos is a Mexican street gang known for having FantasticRacism towards Omnics, yet not only do they include women but at least one ''Omnic'' has been shown to be among them.
* ''VideoGame/{{Tyranny}}'' has Kyros' laws demanding equality between genders (which the description when you choose your character's gender explicitly contrast with the Tiers, the last conquered area, having established gender roles). Kyros' empire also accepts many forms of service and servants -- the individual factions may be more discriminating (which leads to the internal example of the Disfavored, an elite army that ''generally'' favours law and PragmaticVillainy, restricting membership to only Northerners, while the generally cruel, bloodthirsty horde of the Scarlet Chorus allows anyone in), but not Kyros themselves.
** The Scarlet Chorus, in fact, are basically a DeConstruction of this trope. Not only are they a disorganized ArmyOfThievesAndWhores who are prone to [[KlingonPromotion infighting]] and desertion, the fact that they're explicitly a meritocracy makes them prone to SocialDarwinism since they have literally nothing to unite them except terror and violence.
* In ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', Darth Malgus' New Empire embraces aliens rejected by the Republic because their [[PlanetOfHats hat]] is repulsive to the good guys and looked down on by the xenophobic Empire.
* The various raider gangs/tribes found throughout the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series, generally don't seem to have a problem with recruiting either gender or any particular race. As long as you're an evil cutthroat bastard, up for [[RapePillageAndBurn pillaging the innocent, weak, and defenseless]], you're okay in their book.
* In ''El Matador'' we have a [[TheCartel columbian drug cartel]] employing BadassIsraeli Major Yusuf Low and run by [[NaziGrandpa Ex nazi]] Helmut Koch.
* [[TheSocialDarwinist Noxus]] of ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' is often presented as the 'Evil' faction in its war with fellow nation, Demacia. But despite its [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver red and black]] color scheme and general war hungry reputation, anyone can be someone in Noxus. Man or woman, highest of aristocracy or lowest of alley dwellers, regular fighter or powerful magic user if [[MightMakesRight they can fight their way to the top.]] While Demaica, often presented as TheGoodKingdom, is prone to class elitism and ostracizing of anyone not high in social circles and is completely forbidding of mages.
* The Lost Brotherhood in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIVTheLostAndDamned'' are a fairly diverse bike gang with [[OldSoldier Clay]] (African-American), [[TheLancer Jim]] (AmbiguouslyBrown), [[DisabledSnarker Angus]] (wheelchair-bound) and the main protagonist [[NobleDemon Johnny]] (Jewish, albeit [[InformedJudaism non-practicing]]) in contrast to their rivals, the white supremacistic Angels of Death. That is not to say all their members are tolerant; [[FalseFriend Billy Grey]] and [[SmugSnake Brian Jeremy]] are [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain bigoted towards Slavs and the Chinese]] and occasionally throwing antisemitic slurs towards Johnny. Unsurprisingly, they happen to be the most despicable members of the Lost [[spoiler:who end up betraying them at one point or another]].
* The Payday Gang of ''Videogame/PaydayTheHeist'' is a group of bank robbers that consists of two Americans, a Swede and a Brit. In ''Videogame/Payday2'', the various [=DLCs=] extend the roster so that the gang includes a Croatian, a Russian and even a mixed-blood former {{Yakuza}} among many others, including women.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Cwens_Quest/index.php?p=494901 this]] page of ''Webcomic/CwensQuest'' the villains make it clear they do judge anyone in a speech to rally the team members to slaughter a village down the last child.
* The Slavers in ''{{Webcomic/Lightbringer}}'' seem to be predominantly Caucasian, but Lightbringer notes that its members come from all sorts of different races. This probably has to do with how they began as a group of unrelated gangs.
* ''Webcomic/LastRes0rt'' has the [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom furry variant]] of this trope: the [[ChurchOfHappyology Star Org]] isn't just made up of several different species, it also contains several alien species that aren't seen anywhere else. Enforced by a cameo drive (to raise funds for the first book) where fans submitted their fursonas (most of which were not of a species already featured in the story) to sign up and be featured as mooks and officers in the Star Org.
* Team Evil from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' is surprisingly inclusive. It is willing to employ or work with goblins, hobgoblins, ogres, ghasts, zombies, chimeras, mind flayers, humans, succubi, drow elves, kobolds, dwarves, half-orcs, and others. Ironically enough, Xykon is much more tolerant than [[AntiVillain Redcloak]], who dislikes humans and hobgoblins. [[spoiler:He got over the latter.]]
* The [[TheEmpire Veslian]] armies from ''Webcomic/DarkWings'' will hire anyone or anything that can kill Veslin's enemies.
* The trolls in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' seem to be pretty thoroughly egalitarian when it comes to gender: they're just [[FantasticRacism terribly strict about the roles and rights of different blood castes.]] This trope is pretty well justified when it comes to sex: trolls are born in hatcheries en masse, with no knowledge of their genetic parentage, and any romantic coupling (male/female, female/female, male/male) is equally viable for breeding. Since biological gender became completely irrelevant to them ages ago, it makes sense that they don't feel the need to split up their galaxy-conquering firepower with sexism. Officially, anyway; according to Porrim Maryam, the fact that the trolls are ruled by an empress does not make the lower blood ranks less patriarchal.
* Although ''Webcomic/SturgeonsLaw'' is trying to take over or destroy the world, the company's workforce is quite diverse in race and gender.
* The Knights of Len from ''[[http://space-blood.thecomicseries.com/comics/1 Space Blood]]'' are in equal authority and that both the men and women can both be warriors and can even be part of the Blood Council in contrast to the Zedi who mostly have men as warriors and that the Zedi Masters are all male, [[LightIsNotGood But are also evil]].

* Although the USA of ''Literature/DecadesOfDarkness'' are an ever-expanding, slaveholding empire that makes peons of most Mexicans and other Latin Americans, some Hispanics from rich families manage to rise to the top -- Alvar O'Brien (Álvaro Obregón) even becomes president as early as 1932.
* The EvilOverlordList specifically recommends being this; recruiting people of both genders and all races into your Legions of Terror, allowing handicapped people to work for you to prevent a few common mistakes, and spreading oppression and terror equally amongst all your subjects, and not singling out a specific group who will form the core of a rebellion.
* Dragonstorm, the enemy organization of SF [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom furry]] role play ''Roleplay/DarwinsSoldiers'', has shown in its ranks examples of almost every species yet introduced. Of course, so does every other faction; cross-species racism is almost never touched upon.
* [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]] in WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory might count. He claims to have a "homeboy in Israel" (although he may have made that up to taunt Hitler), and the second Vader vs. Hitler video portrays him allied with a GeniusCripple.
* The ''WebVideo/HardlyWorking'' sketch "Secret Society" involves a secret organization of "lady punchers." One of them is [[FemaleMisogynist a woman]], and uses this trope as an explanation.
* In [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]]'s review of ''While She Was Out,'' he derides the fact that the gangsters constitute a [[FiveTokenBand Four Token Band]].
-->"That's the most culturally diverse gang I've ever seen!"
* This is noted as one of the ironies of ''[[WebOriginal/ElfslayerChronicles The Elfslayer Chronicles]]''. Despite being portrayed as [[DesignatedHero sparkly homophilic environmentalists]], the Elves of the aforementioned Chronicles are pretty racially exclusive, while the [[DesignatedVillain greedy homophobic human empire]] has dwarves, half-orcs, tieflings, and (presumably) full orcs as fully accepted members of society.
* ''Literature/{{Enter the Farside}}'' has Jolly, leader of the Mancurian Freakshow. Jolly accepts any inhuman or physically deformed Fargraced, as long as they've been physically changed by the Farside and as long as you're useful and pull your weight.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** Among the series four {{Elemental Nation}}s, the [[PlayingWithFire Fire]] [[TheEmpire Nation]] has integrated women into their armed forces (though they're only seen in the homeland, never the occupying army even though Zhao implies their presence while giving a speech to his army ("We are the sons and daughters of Fire - the superior element!")), none of them question being ordered around by [[DaddysLittleVillain a teenage girl]], and even their [[FridgeHorror prisons]] are [[PrisonRape unisex]]. Contrast this with the Northern Water Tribe, which [[StayInTheKitchen didn't even allow women to learn combative]] [[MakingASplash Waterbending]] until Southern Tribemember Katara forced the issue, and the Earth Kingdom, which doesn't have any women in positions of power. And though the typical Fire Nation policy and attitude towards other nations is [[FantasticRacism essentially racist]], Princess Azula is quite willing to employ the Dai Li (the [[DishingOutDirt Earthbender]] SecretPolice of Ba Sing Se, whose ruthlessness she admires), and even returns to the homeland with a personal contingent of them.
** The Earth Kingdom subverts this in the SequelSeries, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', where there is in fact an Earth Queen. The conqueror who takes over after she's assassinated is female as well. Ironically, both of these characters are evil, though in different ways.
** The SequelSeries also has the titular Avatar Korra visit the multicultural Republic City, where criminal gangs are common. While some seem to be racially exclusive, the [[TheTriadsAndTheTongs Triple Threat Triads]] each consist of a Firebender, Waterbender and Earthbender. (Compare the police force, which used to be entirely Earthbenders, but is now more diverse.)
** [[RebelLeader Amon's]] [[AntiMagicalFaction movement]] seems to accept people of any background, so long as they aren't benders (though they are, of course, also willing to attack non-benders who get in their way).
** Similarly, the [[BombThrowingAnarchists Red Lotus]] will take anyone who proves to be sufficinelty dedicated and useful.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987'', Krang is an "equal opportunity tyrant"; he uses that phrase himself when he hires Lotus.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'' spoofs this with a film that Jay is reviewing; a [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad politically correct]] Film/JamesBond film, ''[[Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService On His or Her Majesty's Secret Service]]''. Bond brags that he was able to convince Ernst Blofeld to start hiring midgets, homosexuals, and the blind. He is immediately attacked by a blind midget homosexual, whom he directs to the next room over.
* Parodied in the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "Excellence In Broadcasting" with Brian being attacked by a racially diverse ThemeParkVersion of a criminal gang.
* Cobra in ''WesternAnimation/GIJoe'' is made up of people from all corners of the world, with Cobra Commander himself being one of the only white American males. In the original Marvel/Sunbow cartoons, at least, Cobra is predominantly filled with Caucasian males; women are notably absent from the rank-and-file Cobra Vipers, and the partially-exposed face masks they wear make the absence of dark skin obvious. There are a few noticeable (and generally uncommented on, curiously enough) exceptions with Cobra troopers--most prominently in the episode "Spell of the Siren," with Cobra ''and'' the Joes forming ad hoc {{Amazon Brigade}}s of their female [[RedShirt unnamed low-ranking troops]] after most of the men are zombified.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderman'', Tombstone is a ScaryBlackMan ''and'' an EvilAlbino. His bodyguards are black men and women.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', one of the mooks of Baron von Ünderbheit explains that in Ünderland, both men and women are required to serve in the Baron's army between ages 12 and 36 (at age 37, they are executed). All of the Baron's mooks to appear on-screen seem to be male, however. (Except [[CrossesTheLineTwice Girl Hitler]], who leads the TerribleTrio[=/=]QuirkyMinibossSquad [[spoiler:and later LaResistance]].)
* The [[LegionOfDoom Masters of Evil]] in ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' are quite diverse. Among the group's members are Baron Zemo (German Nazi... [[NoSwastikas sorry, HYDRA agent]] from UsefulNotes/WorldWarII), the Abomination (English citizen of Russian descent), Radioactive Man (Chinese), Enchantress (Asgardian woman), and Chemistro (African American).
* In ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice,'' [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness the Light]] seems to be some kind of [[TheSocialDarwinist human-supremacy group]], but doesn't limit itself to any specific kind of human: there's white (ComicBook/LexLuthor), white Atlantean ([[EvilPrince Ocean Master]]), white Frenchman ([[BrainInAJar the Brain]]), Arab ([[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Bee]]), black ([[DragonAscendant Black Manta]]), Asian ([[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans Ra's al-Ghul]]), and an AmbiguouslyBrown caveman (ComicBook/VandalSavage). They also let in [[HumanoidAbomination Klarion]], who is not, technically, a human at all (and is mostly in it ForTheLulz).
* The Jokerz in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' seem to take anyone with a sick sense of humour (of course, considering [[ComicBook/TheJoker whom the gang members have as their hero]], [[MonsterClown almost everyone's face ends up getting whitened anyway]]), regardless of gender and ethnicity, and of the three spliced hoods in "Splicers" one's female and one's black.
* The Royal Guard in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has been shown to be exclusively male. Cue the BadFuture scenarios where both King Sombra ''and'' Nightmare Moon are shown having unisex armies (albeit [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed]] in the former's case). That's not to say Celestia doesn't ''have'' female soldiers, as the Wonderbolts have and are led by a female pony, and in said BadFuture scenarios Pinkie and Maud Pie are both shown to be serving in the military on her side.
* Krombopulous Michael from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' is an AffablyEvil assassin, who advertises himself as having no code of ethics, and will kill anyone his client asks without any hesitation, simply because he just loves his job.
--> "Nice to meet you Morty! Listen, if you ever need anybody murdered, ''please'' give me a call, I'm very discrete, I have no code of ethics, I will kill anyone, anywhere. Children, animals, old people, doesn't matter. I just love killing."
* The Galra Empire in ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'' zig-zags this a bit. On one hand, every species they conquer is treated as part of the empire, are encouraged to show their support, and many commanders show no hesitation to include non-Galra and hybrid soldiers in their forces... but at the same time, many others are of the opinion that other species should stay in their place (a.k.a. subservient to the Galra) and that to treat them as equals is a sickening breach of tradition. Prince Lotor is noted to be controversial partly because of his extremely egalitarian views on other species joining the military. [[BigBad Emperor Zarkon]] himself doesn't really seem to care about the matter; he's a big SocialDarwinist, so all he really cares about is [[PragmaticVillainy whether his troops are competent or not]].
** Played straight regarding gender, as the Galra military seems to have a pretty gender equal membership. Notably, when Throk criticizes the above-mentioned Lotor and his AmazonBrigade generals, he brings up their [[HalfBreedDiscrimination half-breed nature]] as a flaw but never bothers mentioning the fact that they're all women.
** Deconstructed with [[spoiler: the Altean Empire in the MirrorUniverse. They're big believers in equality and want to spread peace throughout the universe, yet manage to come off as [[CondescendingCompassion far more racist than the Galra]]. They see themselves as basically being [[CantArgueWithElves a utopia that evolved past conflict and knows better than everyone else]], so clearly the only "moral" thing to do in their eyes is to conquer the rest of the universe to ''force it'' to be equal. And if you object to this, you're either killed or basically lobotimized because ''clearly'' you're just an ill primitive who can't understand that the Alteans are bringing you equality and peace.]]
