-->-- ''Film/JusticeLeague2017''

''Meanwhile, at the Legion of Doom...''

Plot of an episode or StoryArc, wherein one or more villainous characters -- usually made up of some combination of past one-shots, members of the RoguesGallery, and/or a few possible newcomers -- join forces to destroy their common enemies, the protagonists.

Usually, they will initially overpower the heroes, but their own evil selfishness and inability to trust each other undermines their unified front, and the heroes strike at this weakness. Or one dominant personality double-crosses the others. Either way, the team dissolves at the end.

Often saved for a season or series finale. {{Crossover}}s do this a lot, using one villain from each series.

[[TropeNamers Named after]] the nemesis organization to the ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'', who came together during the third season and actually managed to stay together, mostly due to relentless use of a DiabolusExMachina ResetButton to escape in the last scene, usually because their Hall of Doom can ''fly'' or ''burrow'' anywhere, and because their opponents, the Superfriends, frequently ''[[ForgotAboutHisPowers forget they have super powers]]''.

Likely to be a BigBadDuumvirate as well. EvilIsOneBigHappyFamily is usually involved. For one-shot team ups that are usually on a smaller scale, see VillainTeamUp.

Contrast SuperTeam, their good equivalent. Not to be confused with DoomTroops, who are extremely scary {{Mooks}}, but mooks nonetheless.

[[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant Has nothing to do with]] [[UsefulNotes/NationalHockeyLeague Eric Lindros, John LeClair, or Mikael Renberg]] or the TagTeam, Wrestling/TheRoadWarriors (well, actually it does, see below).



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' during the Moxibustion StoryArc, Ranma is weakened and Happōsai (the guy who weakened him) tells every enemy of Ranma's state, and they all gang up on him to give him a beatdown. [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou All but one ...]]
%%* There was a MonsterOfTheWeek in the first season of ''Anime/SailorMoon'' that did this, with predictable results.
* Before ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'''s Great Shocker below, there was the Badan Empire in ''Manga/KamenRiderSpirits'', which revived every single MonsterOfTheWeek and BigBad from the ''Franchise/KamenRider'' franchise up to ''Series/KamenRiderSuper1'' midway through the plot.
* Even ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' manages to pull this off, by way of [[spoiler:Kabuto's Edo Tensei, resurrecting ''many'' foes that either Naruto faced himself, or are enemies of the collected Shinobi villages as a whole. Worse, some of the line-up included some ''friends and family'' to the heroes]]!
* The first part of the Super 17 saga of ''Anime/DragonballGT'', where the gates of HFIL break open, releasing an army of villains from both the original series and Z.
* ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' has the Phantom Troupe, a band of the worlds deadliest killers and thieves. Hisoka joins during the York Shin arc just for a chance to fight the leader, Chrollo Lucifer, but [[SixthRangerTraitor has no loyalty to the group outside of his own agenda]] and [[spoiler: quits once he realizes Chrollo can't use nen anymore]]. One of [[spoiler: Killua's siblings, Kalluto,]] joins later in the series.
* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' has the League of Villains, a gathering of criminals and psychopaths led by Tomura Shigaraki and created by [[BigGood All Might's]] old nemesis [[spoiler:All For One]]. Most of them are united by a hatred for the rules of society and seek to topple it by killing All Might himself.
* The villains in ''Anime/PrettyCureAllStars'' make it their habit to revive the previous villains from the series, and these kind of villains are the more dangerous ones compared to those who only fight with their own abilities. In ''[=DX1=]'', Fusion splits into several fragments and transforms into MonsterOfTheWeek. In ''[=DX2=]'', Bottom revives several generals from the enemy's factions. In ''[=DX3=]'', it's the NonSerialMovie {{Big Bad}}s Black Hole has. In ''Miraculous Magic'', Solciere creates barely sentient copies of the series' {{Big Bad}}s.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Alex Ross, a huge ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'' fan, did a limited series called ''Comicbook/{{Justice}}'', which was his DarkerAndEdgier version of the series. Check out [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/superfriends/images/6/64/Legion_Of_Doom_%28Justice%29.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/2000?cb=20090515053828 his vision of the Legion]].
* Naturally, absurdly common in comic books. There was even a short-lived Creator/{{Marvel|Comics}} series, ''Super-Villain Team-Up''. However it was really a minor example as it mostly came down to ComicBook/DoctorDoom and [[Comicbook/SubMariner Namor]], though the last couple of issues were about ComicBook/RedSkull and the Hate Monger.
* ''Batman's Gangland Guardians'' featured an assembly of {{Franchise/Batman}}'s foes. Fearing that a new mysterious supervillain might actually succeed in killing Batman, they act to secretly protect him. The rationale being that [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou only they, who have put in the time and effort, deserve to be in the running for Batman's final defeat]].
* Another one from DC was the shortlived ''Secret Society of Super-Villains'', in which a collection of old school villains form a sort of anti-Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica and fight the newly-arrived {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} and company. In one memorable scene, Gorilla Grodd has a punchout with a giant club wielding member of the ''ComicBook/NewGods'', and defeats him with the aid of a classic wrestling ploy, the {{heel}}ish [[ISurrenderSuckers mock surrender]]. The Society even had their own series.
** Later expanded during and after ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis''. Witnessing the JLA's much more proactive stance after the murder of Sue Dibny, most of the supervillains band together and form an international organization. This version lasted up until ''Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}}'' and the ''Comicbook/{{New 52}}''.
** After the ''Flashpoint'' reboot, various titles across the New 52 hinted at the existence of a new incarnation of the Society, which finally came into play in ''ComicBook/TrinityWar'' and ''ComicBook/ForeverEvil''.
** The most recent iteration actually pitted a team led by Lex Luthor against a Society/Crime Syndicate team led by ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}}, where Batman (who had already partnered with ComicBook/{{Catwoman}}) was caught up in the mix. The Bat and the Cat work with Lex, who offers Deathstroke enough money to betray his team, leading to a Gang formed of Lex Luthor, Sinestro, ComicBook/BlackAdam, Deathstroke, Captain Cold and Black Manta, who all work ''scarily'' well together. Made even funnier when Batman actually thought he could enforce his no-kill policy.
* The whole premise of the miniseries ''Comicbook/{{Wanted}}'' is that the villains ''don't'' fall to bickering and instead destroy all the heroes and take over the world. (It's only ''after'' the heroes are gone and they are the unequivocal masters of all the world that the infighting starts, mirroring some RealLife political coups by [[EnemyMine politically expedient alliances]].)
* Another Franchise/{{Batman}} example. In an issue of a [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] Batman comic Comicbook/TheJoker and Penguin teamed up and were so good with their combined resources that Batman was powerless to stop them. He won only after they had captured him and he turned them against each other by stroking their egos to the point that they got into a competition and then an argument over who was contributing more to their partnership.
* One of the earliest examples has to be the Injustice Society of the World who first fought the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica in ''All Star Comics'' #37 in 1947, when the concept of supervillains was still relatively new. They would return (in different incarnations) to plague the JSA over the decades.
* Media adaptations of the Comicbook/XMen have an annoying habit of grouping most X-Villains as members of the Brotherhood of (Evil) Mutants with ComicBook/{{Magneto}} as the leader, regardless of whether or not said villain ever had anything to do with the group in the comics (such as Comicbook/{{Sabretooth}}, Comicbook/EmmaFrost, and the Juggernaut, who's not even a mutant), or if they'd ever play second string to ''anyone'' (Comicbook/{{Mystique}}, who led her own version of the team and has never worked with Magneto). Bonus points if Comicbook/{{Quicksilver}} and Comicbook/ScarletWitch are present and willingly serving Magneto, even though they were with him against their will in the comics and jumped ship as soon as they were able, and are more closely associated with ComicBook/TheAvengers than the X-Men these days. Funnily enough, Mystique and Sabretooth, the ones most likely to be on Magneto's side in these adaptations despite almost never being so in the comics, are still associated with ''another'' evil ComicBook/XMen team: [[MadScientist Mister Sinister]]'s Marauders, who are a lot less picky about who to team up with. Though he [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder probably won't be in any hurry to rehire Mystique anytime soon.]]
* DC's Injustice Gang pretty much embodies this trope. The antithesis to the Justice League, they're a group of villains who band together to destroy the JLA. The lineup changes with every appearance, since the Gang tends to disband (or all be thrown in jail) at the end of a given story. Its most successful incarnations have all been led by Lex Luthor; in one story, he tells his fellow members "let's not fall victim to the cliche of the villains who can't get along." He's also perhaps the only major supervillain who has been able to successfully enforce harmony and cooperation among his gang, with no dissensions, betrayals, or serious infighting -- no small feat when you've got The Joker on your team.
* Speaking of Lex and the Joker (back when he was NeutralEvil rather than ChaoticEvil), they teamed up during UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks to take on Bats and Superman, by robbing Fort Knox with ''nigh-invulnerable robots''. [[CutLexLuthorACheck Why in the nine hells they didn't just sell the robots and retire to a Caribbean island is anyone's guess]].[[note]]But as the Joker would say: Where's the fun in that?[[/note]]
* The EvilCounterpart to the Comicbook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}, the Legion of Supervillains, especially the latest incarnation, led by [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Superboy]]-Prime, wherein the roster consists of almost all of the villains the Legion ever faced.
* The UrExample is the Monster Society Of Evil, who fought [[Comicbook/{{Shazam}} the original Captain Marvel]] from 1943 to 1945 in one long, continuous story. It was led by the new villain Mister Mind, but was composed mostly of villains that the good Captain had fought before. And the entire Axis Powers.
* In fact the first example may be from Leading Comics #1 (winter 1941) where the Seven Soldiers Of Victory formed. Master Criminal the Hand, thinking he will die soon, organizes five other criminals to use five unused schemes of his, referring to them as the Hand's Five Fingers. They are stopped by various heroes leading to the formation of the Soldiers. Interestingly enough one member, the Dummy, was a member of the first Monster Society.
* In ''Comicbook/{{Ghost Rider}}s: Heaven's on Fire'', a Legion of Doom has been assembled to kill the Ghost Riders, consisting of Blackout (murderous vampire), the Deacon (musclebound religious zealot with sacred knives), the All-New Orb (LegacyCharacter to the original Ghost Rider archvillain), Big Wheel (baddie-for-hire who pilots a large metal wheel), Madcap (indestructible lunatic with contagious insanity), Vengeance (ex-cop turned Ghost Rider simulacrum), Trull the Inhuman (alien-possessed steamshovel), and Scarecrow ([[Franchise/{{Batman}} No, not that one]], but rather a maniac with a pitchfork who commands crows).
* Marvel has several: [[Comicbook/TheAvengers The Masters of Evil]], [[Franchise/SpiderMan the Sinister Six]], Hood's Gang, [[Comicbook/FantasticFour The Frightful Four]], etc.
** The Masters of Evil are the most successful, with one incarnation taking over the Avengers' base (and beating the living crap out of Hercules and Jarvis). Much of this incarnation later went on to form the ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}}. (Hercules, amongst others, was ''not'' happy to find out about this...)
** The Lethal Legion in one incarnation was an ArchivedArmy.
** And the Legion of the Unliving, which is made of characters currently dead, and in one incarnation was mostly made up of dead Avengers.
** The Sinister Six has even become the Sinister Twelve.
** The Council of Kangs is made entirely of [[ConquerorFromTheFuture Kang the Conqueror]] and his various iterations created by time travel.
** The Revengers were a short-lived group made up of heroes who felt the Avengers had crossed the line and needed to be taken down.
* A particularly enjoyable miniseries example came from Marvel a few years ago: ComicBook/{{MODOK}}'s [[{{Parody}} 11]]. MODOK hires a group of supervillains to help him steal a MacGuffin. 3/4 of the team ends up being traitors, moles and sellouts. In the end, [[spoiler: it was all just a [[GambitRoulette ridiculously circuitous plot]] to get revenge on his ex-girlfriend]].
* ''Franchise/TheFlash'' has The Rogues, who started out as a VillainTeamUp in UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks, but after discovering how well they worked together decided to keep working together. These days it's rare to see one of the Rogues commit a crime without some of the others around.
* Comicbook/FallOfTheHulks gave us the Inteligencia, a group of Marvel's smartest villains. Unlike most examples, they've managed to not fall to bickering and work towards a common goal.
* The Superman Revenge Squad, mostly made up of relatively minor or recently created Franchise/{{Superman}} villains, was formed by behind-the-scenes bad guy Morgan Edge to fight Superman. The group ultimately failed due to a lack of cohesion.
* An early Superman story had the Terrible Trio, made up of Lex Luthor, the Toyman, and the Prankster.
* In ''ComicBook/TopTen'', it's established that what would be supervillain teams anywhere else are essentially street gangs in Neopolis, where ''everybody'' is super. There's an ongoing turf war between the Fabulous Five and the League of Evil.
* As part of his plans during ''ComicBook/DarkReign'', ComicBook/NormanOsborn set up a "Cabal" consisting of himself, ComicBook/EmmaFrost, [[Comicbook/SubMariner Namor]], ComicBook/DoctorDoom, ComicBook/TheHood, and ComicBook/{{Loki}}. It...uh...[[HumiliationConga worked out about as well as for Osborn as everything else did in that saga]].
** But there was also a ComicBook/DarkAvengers, with villains impersonating heroes.
** Norman tries again when he busts out of jail following ''Comicbook/FearItself'', this time allying his H.A.M.M.E.R. organization with A.I.M., Hydra, and the Hand, and once again uniting multiple villains (independent of those groups) into a new group of Dark Avengers. It doesn't work out for him any better this time.
* Image's ''Guarding the Globe'' series introduced us to the Order, a select group of minor recurring ''ComicBook/{{Invincible}}'' villains, including the Face, Master Liu and his bodyguard, Octoboss, Multi-Paul, Machine Head, Isotope, and Titan -- in addition to new guys like the group's leader Set, his woman Embrace, and international enforcers like Red Eye, Insomniac, Slaying Mantis, the Walking Dread...and [[spoiler:War Woman.]]
* In ''ComicBook/AllFallDown'', the Order of Despots is this to the Pantheon.
* ''ComicBook/LeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' had two, which were formed by France and Germany in the early 20th century to combat Britain's original League. The French had "Les Hommes Mysterieux" ("The Mysterious Men"), which included Literature/ArseneLupin, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robur_the_Conqueror Jean Robur]], Literature/{{Fantomas}}, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nyctalope the Nyctalope]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monsieur_Zenith Monsieur Zenith]]. The Germans had "Die Zwielichthelden" ("The Twilight Heroes"), which included [[Film/TheCabinetOfDrCaligari Dr. Caligari and his assassin Cesare]], [[Film/{{Metropolis}} Dr. Rotwang and his robotic servant Maria]], and Literature/DoctorMabuse. Both groups had a hand in starting the ''League'' universe's version of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI.
* Parodied in the ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' comic strip story "Death to the Doctor!". A group of loser villains (created just for the story) come together to plot to kill the Doctor, only to kill each other out of paranoia that the Doctor is there in disguise and killing them one by one.
* The ninth issue of the ''ComicBook/{{Madballs}}'' comic book published by Creator/MarvelComics subsidiary Star Comics had Dr. Frankenbeans and Snivelitch team up with other enemies of the Madballs (Miss Tic the Mystic, Colonel Corn, Maiden Hong Kong, The Badballs, Anchor Man, and Captain Weirdbeard) to form INC (or [[FunWithAcronyms International Network of Creeps]]).
* Attempted by Loki in the ''Acts of Vengeance'' crossover. It didn't work out well, most notably because a) [[WriterRevolt the writers were in open revolt]], and b) he neglected to consider the people he was trying to get to work together. In particular, putting ComicBook/{{Magneto}} (a Jewish Holocaust survivor who takes "never again" ''[[PayEvilUntoEvil very seriously]]'') and the ComicBook/RedSkull (an outspoken Nazi) in the same room was [[BuriedAlive a disaster waiting to happen, really]] ([[KickTheSonOfABitch at least from the Skull's perspective]] - most everyone else was rather impressed).
* ''ComicBook/FirstStrike'' has several villains of the ComicBook/HasbroComicUniverse coming together, with the only major absentees being any Cybertronians, since they're the villains' intended targets, and any villains from ROM, because the BigBad has a very personal grudge against them. Naturally, they don't get on very well, and some of them are even expecting a sudden but inevitable betrayal.
* Another DC one was the Injustice League, formed by Lex Luthor, Joker, and Cheetah, as a protection racket for supervillains. One of their first plans lead to them kidnapping and humiliating pretty much every member of the Justice League save for Superman and Black Lightning, who work together to free the rest and take them down. The bickering supervillains issue came into play, albeit in a darker means; Doctor Light was one of the villains recruited, and while Luthor and Joker had no issue, Cheetah point-blank refused to work with him because he's a serial rapist, and later when things went to shit she went out of her way to kill him during the chaos; [[EvenEvilHasStandards she's a monster, but she has ''some'' limits]].

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In ''Fanfic/LostTalesOfFantasia'', a group of Disney villains join forces to lead the Nazis and take over the universe, consisting of [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]], WesternAnimation/{{Pete}}, [[WesternAnimation/TheMadDoctor Doctor XXX]], [[WesternAnimation/KimPossible Doctor Dementor and Lord Fisk]], [[HumanityEnsues human]] versions of [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar]] and [[Disney/TheJungleBook Shere Khan]], [[WesternAnimation/KimPossible An]][[AdaptationalVillainy na]], [[WesternAnimation/RunawayBrain Dr. Frankenollie]], [[Series/PairOfKings Yamakoshi]], [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Red Skull]], [[WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong the Huntsman]], [[Disney/{{Pinocchio}} the Coachman]], [[Disney/AliceInWonderland Al]][[AdaptationalVillainy ice]], [[Disney/TheAdventuresOfIchabodAndMrToad the Headless Horseman]], and UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler. (OneOfTheseThingsIsNotLikeTheOthers.)
* Parodied with usual relish in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' with the episode "Marik's Evil Council of Doom".
* ''FanFic/Hottie3TheBestFanFicInTheWorld'':
** The Guild of Super Evil.
** The Empire of Darkness from the sequel, [[http://alaxr274.deviantart.com/gallery/46993107 Hottie 4: Even Better Sequel]]. Members include the TropeNamers themselves.
** Hottie 5: Fifty Shades of Epic cranks this trope UpToEleven with the Axis of Evil, with not only the TropeNamers themselves as members, but almost every single villainous alliance listed on this very page are members as well.
* In ''Fanfic/MyLittleMagesTheNightmaresReturn'', Nightmare Moon assembles a team of ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Friendship Is Magic]]'' antagonists as her mooks, including Chrysalis (a necromancer), the Diamond Dogs (werewolves) and Iron Will (a mercenary).
* ''Fanfic/InvaderZimTheSeries'': During the last StoryArc, Tallest Spork assembles most of Zim's RoguesGallery for the combined goals of killing Zim and taking over the Irken Empire.
* Often times in ''Pooh's Adventures'', there's a legion of assorted villains that are after Pooh, and there are times in the Adventures where the good chunk of them are featured as the main villains that team up with the villain of the film.
* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'' gives us the posse organized by the mystery BigBad ([[spoiler: later revealed to be Bagan]]), which also works as a [[{{Kaiju}} Genre Crossover]], with evil kaiju from numerous franchises -- Gigan, Gaira, Megalon, Hedorah, Monster X, and King Ghidorah from {{Franchise/Godzilla}}, Gyaos (Normal, Super, and an albino Hyper) and Legion from {{Franchise/Gamera}}, and Leatherback, Otachi, Knifehead, and Slattern from ''Film/PacificRim''. Most of these parties are joining him for the sole purpose of getting what they want most, which is not pleasant (feasts, destruction, conquest, etc.)
* ''Fanfic/ShinnenNewYear'' has the League of Extraordinary Da'ath lead by Yuu of Anime/GuiltyCrown.
* ''Fanfic/TheEquestrianWindMage'': The true antagonists of the series, [[GodOfEvil Majora]] and [[DreamWeaver King Dethl]], steadily add a majority of Equestria's worst enemies to their own alliance. Including the demons and villains of Hyrule already serving Majora, this includes Yuga, Veran, Onox, Ghirahim, Dethl, King Sombra, Tirek, Grogar, Sunset Shimmer, and Starlight Glimmer.
* The Saint Lords of ''VideoGame/RakenzarnTales''. Lead by Ganondorf, their members include the likes of Bowser, Dr. Eggman, Albert Wesker, Sephiroth, Cooler and Fate Avveruncus.
* [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Dead End]], from the MagicalGirl CrisisCrossover ''FanFic/ShatteredSkies''.
* In ''FanFic/BringMeToLife'', the First Evil responds to the alliance between the [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Scooby Gang]] and [[Series/{{Angel}} Angel Investigations]] by gathering together some of their worst enemies. In addition to its canonical servant Caleb, this includes Ethan Rayne, the Beast, Amy Madison, Warren Mears, Drusilla, and Pearl and Nash.

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* Done in ''WesternAnimation/ShrekTheThird'' with fairy tale villains.
* As the name would imply, the Legion of Doom are featured as the main villains of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueDoom''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOBatmanMovie'' has two, both led by ComicBook/TheJoker:
** The first one consists of Harley Quinn plus Two-Face, Penguin, Riddler, Bane, Catwoman, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, Clayface, Killer Croc and pretty much the entirety of Batman's RoguesGallery, right down to such obscurities as Orca, Tarantula and Polka-Dot Man.
** Once Joker manages to [[spoiler:bust out of the Phantom Zone]], his second Legion brings Harley back but also includes [[spoiler:[[Franchise/HarryPotter Lord Voldemort]] as TheDragon, Film/KingKong, [[Film/ClashOfTheTitans1981 the Kraken, Medusa and a whole bunch of skeleton warriors]], Film/{{Jaws}}, [[Franchise/TheMatrix Agent Smith(s)]], [[Franchise/UniversalHorror the Universal Monsters,]] the T-Rex and Velociraptors from ''Film/JurassicPark'', [[Film/TheWizardOfOz the Wicked Witch of the West (with flying monkeys),]] [[Literature/LordOfTheRings Sauron,]] [[Franchise/{{Superman}} General Zod,]] [[Film/{{Gremlins}} the Gremlins]] and [[Series/DoctorWho the Daleks.]]]] Despite the fact that most of these guys are [[BigBad fairly formidable villains,]] [[EvilIsOneBigHappyFamily the team actually gets along well without any bickering]], but they're ultimately taken down by [[spoiler:the first Legion teaming up with Batman and his allies, out of anger for Joker getting them arrested and then discarding them.]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* The 1966 live-action ''Film/BatmanTheMovie'', featuring the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler, and Catwoman ("United Underworld") in a cheesy [[spoiler:[[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins penguin-shaped]]]] submarine. They even went through the trouble of making a logo. ([[EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods An octopus]] [[GotTheWholeWorldInMyHand strangling a globe?]])
* The Joel Schumacher-directed Batman movies also have this as all the villains within the movie unite to kill Batman. Riddler joins and eventually leads Two-Face's gang in ''Film/BatmanForever'' and Mr. Freeze allies with Poison Ivy and Bane in ''Film/BatmanAndRobin''.
* More or less subverted in ''Film/BatmanReturns'' where Penguin's two allies have no idea they're both affiliated with Penguin (at least on a criminal level) and none of them can get past the second act without completely and violently falling apart.
* ''Film/ScoobyDooMonstersUnleashed'', reviving many of the {{monster|OfTheWeek}}s that Mystery Inc. has unmasked in the past. However, this time, all of them are ''real''.
* In ''Film/NightAtTheMuseum 2'', Kahmunra recruits UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte, Ivan The Terrible, and UsefulNotes/AlCapone as his evil [[ArchivedArmy team]]. [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]] and [[Series/SesameStreet Oscar the Grouch]] also try to join it, but since Kahmunra has no idea who they are, they don't make the cut.
* ''Film/LooneyTunesBackInAction'' had various Looney Tunes antagonists (Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Marvin the Martian, etc.) working for the BigBad.
* ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries'' was building up to Spider-Man having to face one before Sony loaned Spider-Man to the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse.
* In ''Film/KickAss2'', The Motherfucker assembles a bunch of killers and dresses them up as supervillains to counter the rise of superheroes.
* In ''Film/JusticeLeague2017'', TheStinger involves [[spoiler: ComicBook/LexLuthor escaping prison with plans to start a team in response to the creation of the Justice League, with ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}} being his first recruit.]]

* ''Literature/AnnoDracula'' by Creator/KimNewman features a Victorian Legion of Doom comprising Literature/FuManchu, [[Literature/SherlockHolmes Professor Moriarty, Colonel Moran]], Literature/{{Raffles}}, Literature/TheInvisibleMan, [[Theatre/TheBeggarsOpera Macheath]] and [[Literature/OliverTwist Bill Sikes]]. In a twist, they [[EnemyMine join forces with the heroes]] to stop [[UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper the Silver Knife]], because EvenEvilHasStandards...or at least, good business practices.
* In ''Literature/TheHoundOfTheDurbervilles'', also by Kim Newman, we get a multinational one that includes Professor Moriarty, Colonel Moran, [[Literature/{{Raffles}} A.J. Raffles]], and The Hoxton Creeper from Britain, Irene Adler and Jack Quartz from America, Literature/ArseneLupin and Film/LesVampires from France, [[Literature/ThePrisonerOfZenda Rupert of Hentzau]], [[Literature/TheJewelOfSevenStars Queen Tera]] of Egypt, Literature/FuManchu and Doctor Nikola from China, and [[Film/DrMabuseTheGambler Doctor Mabuse]] from Germany.
* Harry Dresden of ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' names the [[TheManBehindTheMan shadowy force]] the Black Council so as to not call it this trope. He also calls it a [[Franchise/StarWars phantom menace]] at one time, but [[ShoutOut asks forgiveness for the phrasing]]. They are later revealed to refer to themselves as 'the Circle'.
* The Dark Forest in ''Literature/WarriorCats'' is a group of all the evil cats from earlier books, joining their forces to destroy the Clans.
* In R.S Blecher's Shotgun Arcana, 32 of the most evil men and women on Earth (including a man who's either an expy or implied to become Jack the Ripper) are assembled by a fallen angel to join forces with his cult of blood-crazed gypsies. They then descend on the town of Golgotha to steal a particular artifact and infect the entire world with a murderous thoughts.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The final episode of ''Series/TeamKnightRider'', aptly titled "Legion of Doom", featured all the villains from the series teaming up under the command of the series' BigBad.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has toyed with doing this on several occasions, but it never quite works out.
** In [[Recap/DoctorWho20thASTheFiveDoctors "The Five Doctors"]], many of the Doctor's worst foes are brought together to finish him off -- but they are merely pawns of TheManBehindTheCurtain, and apart from the Master and the Cybermen don't even interact.
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E4TheDaleksMasterPlan "The Daleks' Master Plan"]] is nearly an ideal example of the trope -- a colourful array of supervillains is brought together by the Daleks; it includes a dominant, disruptive personality (YellowPeril and DiabolicalMastermind Mavic Chen), and the heroes exploit the infighting. Just one problem -- the Doctor's never met any of these bad guys before.
** The new series episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E13Doomsday "Doomsday"]] bring the Daleks and Cybermen together, however the Daleks, being the Daleks, respond to the Cybermen's offer of an alliance with summary extermination.
** Subverted to hell and back in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E12ThePandoricaOpens "The Pandorica Opens"]], in which a couple ''dozen'' races show up, apparently to squabble over whatever is imprisoned in the eponymous device, [[spoiler:only to imprison the Doctor in an effort to ''save'' the universe]]. Seen on screen are the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Sontarans, the Silurians, the Autons, and the Judoons, and many more get name checks or cameos in crowd shots.
* ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' has done this at least twice:
** ''[[Series/PowerRangersInSpace In Space]]'' had [[BigBad Dark Specter]]'s United Alliance Of Evil (rounding up six seasons' worth of villains). The Rangers mainly fought newcomer Astronema, but the finale featured a united assault on the entire known universe.
** ''[[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Operation Overdrive]]'' had a short-lived case in the 15th anniversary "Once A Ranger" 2-parter, with the never-seen-before son of [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd]] uniting the season's BigBadEnsemble (who are usually at each other's throats in any episode involving more than one organization.)
* ''Franchise/KamenRider''
** The final episodes of ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'' feature the BigBad amassing an enormous army of the series' [[MonsterOfTheWeek monsters]] in order to outnumber the heroes (two Riders and 5/6 Imagin) and accomplish his plans. This army would later be resurrected in the third movie, ''Final Countdown'', under the movie's BigBad.
** ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' introduces a particularly large version in the form of Great Shocker, which is an alliance of every single evil organization from ''Franchise/KamenRider''[='=]s 30-plus-year history united under a single banner and dedicated to conquering the multiverse and destroying all the Kamen Riders. [[spoiler:And their leader is Tsukasa Kadoya, AKA Kamen Rider Decade, one of --- if not --- ''the'' most powerful Rider ever.]] On a smaller scale, the final episode sees Apollo Geist reviving some of the {{monster|OfTheWeek}}s that Tsukasa and company dealt with while travelling through the AR worlds.
** In the ''[[GrandFinale Final Chapter]]'' movie, [[spoiler:following Great Shocker's downfall in ''All Riders vs. Great Shocker'', Doctor Shinigami and Narutaki (who reveals himself as Colonel Zol) gather TheRemnant as Super Shocker, hoping to take advantage of the fact that Tsukasa's rampage as Destroyer of Worlds has eliminated all the Kamen Riders. Unfortunately for them, all the Kamen Riders are later brought BackFromTheDead ''because'' Decade destroyed them (it's a complicated story).]]
** In ''Film/KamenRiderXSuperSentaiSuperHeroTaisen'', Great Shocker has been rebuilt with its leader back into the seat and [[Series/KamenRiderV3 Doctor G]] as his [[TheDragon Dragon]], for a new purpose: the systemic annihilation of all the Super Sentai teams, simply because the Zangyack Empire decided to step on the ''Kamen Rider'' multiverse's toes --- see the ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' section below for their side of the story.
** The [[MilestoneCelebration 40th anniversary movie]] ''[[Film/OOODenOAllRidersLetsGoKamenRiders Let's Go Kamen Rider]]'' has Shocker [[BadFuture persisting into the 21st century]] thanks to [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Ankh]] sneaking into [[Series/KamenRiderDenO Den-O]]'s time-traveling train [[ForWantOfANail for want of medals]]; its membership in 2011 includes villains from all over the franchise like [[Series/KamenRiderBlackRX General Jark]] and [[Series/KamenRiderDouble Ryubee Sonozaki/Terror Dopant]].
** The OnTheNext preview for episode 25 of ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' teased at this, where three previous Zodiarts that Fourze had already defeated seemed to have regained their powers, and are working together to sabotage the school prom. [[spoiler:However, it turns out that this was just the work of a Zodiarts whose power is to create copies of previous Zodiarts.]]
** In the ''[[Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderFourzeAndOOOMovieWarMegaMax Movie War]]'' {{crossover}} with ''Series/KamenRiderOOO'', Foundation X uses the research its agents gathered to build an army consisting of various {{monster|OfTheWeek}}s as well as mooks from the three series involved (''Fourze'', ''OOO'' and ''[[Series/KamenRiderDouble W]]''), alongside monsters of the BigBad's own design, called "Mutamids". They are not essentially the same monsters from their original series (the Foundation can make copies), but it's an excuse to reuse monster suits.
** In the ''[[Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderWizardAndFourzeMovieWarUltimatum Movie War]]'' between ''Fourze'' and ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'' there is Monster Army, which consists of revived [[Series/KamenRiderDouble Dopants]], [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Yummy]], [[Series/KamenRiderFourze Zodiarts]], and [[Series/KamenRiderWizard Phantoms]], led by evil alternate versions of the main trio from ''Series/Akumaizer3''.
** The final episodes of ''Wizard'' also sees the heroes dealing with an army of monsters from the previous Heisei series.
* ''Franchise/SuperSentai''
** Not wanting to be left out, there is the [[MilestoneCelebration 30th anniversary celebration]] ''Series/GoGoSentaiBoukenger vs. Franchise/SuperSentai'', where High priest Gajah makes an alliance with the movie's BigBad, Chronos, who in turn revives [[Series/HyakujuuSentaiGaoranger Tsue Tsue]], [[Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger Meemy]] and, in the very last minute, [[Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger Furabijo]]. [[spoiler:Last minute, as in the alliance was quickly short-lived, by Chronos betraying everyone and turning the three sorceresses into a staff to power himself up.]]
** The movies for the ''35th'' anniversary series do something similar - ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' is already a Decade-style-celebration, but its villains are the completely original Zangyack Empire. However, the [[Film/GokaigerGoseigerSuperSentai199HeroGreatBattle first movie]] involves said empire making an alliance with the Black Cross King, a revived [[PeopleInRubberSuits rubber suit]] form of the Black Cross [[NoSwastikas Fuhrer]] from ''Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger'', who in turn revives [[Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger Brajira]], Dagon from ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger'' and Yogoshimacritein from ''Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger''.
** Among the lackeys of the villain of ''Film/KaizokuSentaiGokaigerTheMovieTheFlyingGhostShip'' is a revived [[Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger Agent Abrella]], who himself leads an army of nearly every {{Mook|s}} that has existed in ''Sentai'' history.
** In ''Film/KamenRiderXSuperSentaiSuperheroTaisen'', Zangyack has been expanded into "Great Zangyack" by the hands of their new emperor, who appears to be a {{Face Heel Turn}}ed Captain Marvelous, AKA Gokai Red, who launches an invasion of the ''Kamen Rider'' multiverse to claim the Riders' Grand Powers; its membership includes a number of high-level villains from all over the ''Super Sentai'' franchise like [[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger Doukoku]] and [[Series/ChoudenshiBioman Bio Hunter Silva]]. [[spoiler:Eventually, this organization [[VillainTeamUp teams up]] with the above-mentioned Dai-Shocker to form the Shocker-Zangyack Alliance.]]
* ''Series/{{Angel}}'' Season 5 makes use of this by taking several minor characters that appeared throughout the season and putting them in a group called the Circle of the Black Thorn, which the heroes spend the last episode combating. Sort of an {{inver|tedTrope}}sion--rather being a group of random villains that teamed up, they had ''already'' been working together, though Angel and his friends didn't find out until later.
* In the first season of ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'', Prince Edmund gathers the six most evil men in England to help him take over the kingdom. However since he doesn't really belong among their number, much less [[BigBadWannabe leading them]], they quickly betray him for a more fitting leader.
* Sue's self-described Leg - uh, ''League'' of Doom in ''Series/{{Glee}}'', if you replace "supervillain" with "returning character with a grudge against the local show choir". She even gives them code-names, dubbing herself [[KneelBeforeZod General Zod]].
* The ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' episode "One Of Us" involves [[DeadlyDoctor Cal/Mr. Hyde]] trying to put together his own Legion Of Doom to take vengeance on Coulson and his allies. The team is made up of himself, [[TheBrute Frances Noche]], [[BrownNote Angar the Screamer]], [[EvilGenius Wendell Levi]], and [[FemmeFatalons Karla Faye Gideon]]. The plan actually works pretty well and they nearly defeat the agents, but it falls apart when [[spoiler: Gordon teleports in and kidnaps Cal for his own purposes, leaving the rest of the team confused and directionless and allowing the agents to outwit them]]. Something of a downplayed example, as aside from Cal, none of these other villains had shown up before.
* DC's ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'':
** The second season introduces the Arrowverse version of the Legion, made up of various villains from ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' and ''Series/TheFlash2014'': Eobard Thawne/the Reverse-Flash, Damien Darhk [[note]]A past version of him from the 1980s[[/note]], Malcolm Merlyn/the Dark Archer, [[spoiler: a [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed]] Rip Hunter (temporarily), and a version of Leonard Snart/Captain Cold from before he joined the Legends.]] Nate actually dubs them the Legion of Doom, claiming he got the name from "an old Hanna-Barbara [[{{WesternAnimation/Superfriends}} cartoon]] he watched as a kid." His attempts to get the rest of the team to call them this are met with mixed success.
** The Cult of Mallus in Season 3 is built up to be another one, with its membership including Damien Darkh (again), his [[DaddysLittleVillain daughter Nora]], [[KillerGorilla Gorilla Grodd]] and [[CainAndAbel Kuasa]]. By the SeasonFinale, however, most have been removed from play for one reason of another, so Mallus gathers several oneshot historical villains from over the course of the season -- Blackbeard, Julius Caesar, and Freydis -- and their respective followers to serve as his new army.
* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'':
** In "Invasion", Oliver, Thea, Sara, Ray, and Diggle are trapped in a LotusEaterMachine. When they try to break out, the machine creates copies of Malcolm Merlyn / the Dark Archer, Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, Damien Darhk, several [[SuperSoldier Mirakuru soldiers]], and several [[{{Mooks}} Ghosts]]. For bonus points, they each confront the villain they have a [[ArchEnemy personal grudge against]], so we have Thea vs. [[ArchNemesisDad Malcolm]], Sara vs. [[YouKilledMyFather Damien]], Oliver vs. [[WeUsedToBeFriends Slade]], Diggle vs. [[CainAndAbel the Ghosts]], and Ray vs. [[YouKilledMyFather the Mirakuru soldiers]], and it is ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome glor]][[CatharsisFactor ious]]''.
** Midway through Season 6, it's revealed that the BigBad of the season, [[TheCracker Cayden James]], is leading a cabal composed of three previously established villains -- [[EvilDoppelganger Black Siren]], [[TheMafiya Anatoli Knyazev]], and [[KnightTemplar Vigilante]] -- as well as newcomer Richard Dragon, who had previously been set up as the season's DiscOneFinalBoss.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': In "Prophecy", Toyman gathers several past and new villains, including Metallo, Roulette, Dark Archer, Black Manta, Captain Cold, and Solomon Grundy, into a team he calls Marionette Ventures. At the end of the episode, he shows his team a list of the heroes and commands them to each target and kill one of them. However, [[AbortedArc they never appear nor are mentioned again]].
* While ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' has plenty of smaller [[VillainTeamUp villain alliances]] throughout its run, it doesn't really hit this trope until the back half of Season 4, when Jerome Valesca forms a team composed of himself, Jervis Tetch, Scarecrow, Firefly, and Mr. Freeze, as well as a reluctant Penguin and Butch Gilzean/Solomon Grundy, in order to carry out a plan to drive all of Gotham mad. He refers to the group as the "Legion of Horribles".

* ''Chester'', a now-classic William Billings song from the Revolutionary War, devotes a verse to what sure sounds like the British Legion of Doom circa the 18th Century.
-->''Howe and Burgoyne and Clinton, too''
-->''With Prescott and Cornwallis joined,''
-->''Together plot our overthrow''
-->''In one infernal league combined.''

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Legendary ProfessionalWrestling stable Wrestling/TheFourHorsemen started out as a Legion of Doom-esque gathering of {{heel}}s. Rated RKO was the teaming of two of [[Wrestling/DGenerationX DeGeneration X]]'s biggest rivals, and [=DeGeneration X=] itself was originally formed to fight against The Hart Foundation. There was also a wrestling group called The Legion of Doom who existed three years before the Horsemen but had been reduced to a {{tag team}}, Wrestling/TheRoadWarriors, when the Horsemen showed up. And we can't let the Pro Wrestling entry go by without a mention of the [[Wrestling/NewWorldOrder nWo]], can we?
* While LOD might have been best known as the tag team of Hawk and Animal, in Georgia Championship Wrestling they were actually an example of this trope and included such other future legends as [[Wrestling/JakeRoberts Jake the Snake]], The Spoiler, Matt Borne (AKA the first Wrestling/DoinkTheClown), Wrestling/KingKongBundy, Wrestling/ArnAnderson, and for perhaps the only time both of the Sheiks, [[Wrestling/TheIronSheik Iron]] and [[Wrestling/EdFarhat Original]]. The two remaining members were made into a tag team and were supposed to be called Wrestling/TheRoadWarriors hence why they are introduced as "Road Warrior Hawk" and "Road Warrior Animal". The two names have been used interchangeably since then.
* In 1995 Wrestling/{{WCW}}, Wrestling/KevinSullivan and his "Father" The Master (Wrestling/KingCurtisIaukea) put together one of the most imposing heel stables of all time called the Wrestling/DungeonOfDoom. The group featured the great [[WrestlingMonster Monster Heels]] Wrestling/{{Kamala}}, [[Wrestling/JohnTenta The Shark (John "Earthquake" Tenta)]] and Haku (now known as Wrestling/{{Meng}}) who is generally considered one of if not the most legitimate tough guys in wrestling also joined the group, with the centerpiece being [[Wrestling/TheBigShow The Giant]]. At Halloween Havoc 95 the group really began to hit its stride with the inclusion of former world champion Wrestling/LexLuger and the legendary Manager Wrestling/JimmyHart. The stable would expand over the next several months to include an odd mix of characters, including Wrestling/TheBarbarian, [[Wrestling/RonReis The Yeti]], Wrestling/TheOneManGang, Wrestling/GiantHaystacks (billed as the Loch Ness Monster) [[Wrestling/BigBossman Big Bubba (Ray "The Big Bossman" Traylor)]], Wrestling/HughMorrus, Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}} and Wrestling/{{Konnan}}. The stable peaked in early 1996 and were ultimately DemotedToExtra due to the rise of the [[Wrestling/NewWorldOrder NWO]] and dissolved after Wrestling/ChrisBenoit d. Sullivan in a "Career vs. Career" match at ''Bash at the Beach'' on July 13th, 1997.
* During ''Uncensored '96'', two of the groups above united to create an even ''bigger'' Legion of Doom when the Four Horsemen and the Dungeon of Doom joined forces to become the Alliance to End Hulkamania along with two random wrestlers The Ultimate Solution (the late Robert "Jeep" Swenson, aka "Bane" from ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'') and Z-Gangsta (Tom Lister, Jr., who played Zeus in Wrestling/HulkHogan's 1989 film ''Film/NoHoldsBarred''). They fought Hogan and Wrestling/RandySavage in the "Doomsday Cage Match", a [[GimmickMatches triple-decker cage]]. However, at the apex of his InvincibleHero status, Hogan was still too much for the eight members of the Alliance and he and Savage soundly beat them.
* In 1998, [[Wrestling/VinceMcmahon Vince McMahon]] created his own legion of doom, Wrestling/TheCorporation, to contend with the likes of Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin, Wrestling/MickFoley, and Wrestling/DGenerationX. They became even more doomy when [[Wrestling/ShaneMcmahon Shane McMahon]] took over the Corporation and merged it with the Wrestling/MinistryOfDarkness to form the Corporate Ministry, while still answering to the "Higher Power" (which was revealed to be Vince [=McMahon=]).
* Abismo Negro, Maniaco, Mosco de la Merced, Histeria and March-1 came together as Los Rudos de la Galaxia in Wrestling/{{AAA}} during the 1990s to get rid of the young, popular "[[SpaceCadet Los Cadetes del Espacio]]". The older Histeria, now going by "Super Crazy", a new Histreria, Absimo Negro, Maniaco and a new Mosco de la Merced would join with Psicosis II, Electroshock, Mini Abismo Negro, Mini Histeria and Mosquito de la Merced under Cibernético's leadership in 1997 to become Los Vipers.
* Wrestling/MsChif briefly had one in the form of Amazing Kong (whom she feuded with in the Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA), Wesna Busic (whom she fell to in the [=ChickFight=] VIII finals) and Wrestling/SaraDelRey (who she beat for the Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} singles title). Wesna backed off after being beaten while Kong came and [=MsChif=] [[WorthyOpponent eventually came to a mutual understanding]] ([=MsChif=] later tried to fight Kong's own legion of doom). Also, [[Wrestling/MadisonRayne Ashley Lane]], Nevaeh and Wrestling/CheerleaderMelissa were there to back [=MsChif=] up (back up meaning [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown sharing the beating]] and attracting more unwanted attention from Annie Social)
* When Los Perros Del Mal invaded Wrestling/{{AAA}} in 2010, they found themselves surrounded not by enemies but instead ended up merging with the already present La Milicia and Los Maniacos along with the Wrestling/{{Konnan}} and Dorian Roldan lead La Legion Extranjera to form La Sociedad. Later, El Consejo also became a "member" group. For reference, the maniacs were three strong, the council and militia had about ten people each, Konnan's foreign legion was large enough to have its own sub groups and at this point the dogs had graduated from PowerStable to [[VillainBasedFranchise a promotion in their own right]], making Sociedad among the largest pro wrestling/lucha libre factions ever conceived.
* SHINE's founders attempted to curb the chaos pro wrestling often devolves into by giving [[EasilyDistractedReferee ref]][[GlassJawReferee erees]] power to fine and suspend. Most wrestlers were apathetic but repeat offenders Radiant Rain and Made In Sin(Allysin Kay-Taylor Made-April Hunter) took exception to this upstart promotion docking their pay and bookings. So they formed "Valkyrie" with new comer Wrestling/IvelisseVelez to subvert SHINE's rulings and [[EvilIsPetty freely target wrestlers on its roster]], starting with [[Wrestling/KiaStevens Amazing Kong]], who broke Rain's wrist after [[Wrestling/CarleneMoore Jazz]] [[NiceJobBreakingItHero lobbied to end the suspensions of Rain]] and Wrestling/MercedesMartinez, [[SeriousBusiness to get them in a tag team match]](Kong also embarrassed Made In Sin at an NWA FUW show).
* [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]] had his own personal legion of doom in the form of Wrestling/TheAuthority comprised of Triple H, Wrestling/RandyOrton, Stephanie [=McMahon=], Wrestling/TheShield (Wrestling/SethRollins, Wrestling/RomanReigns and Wrestling/DeanAmbrose), The Big Show and former [[Wrestling/TeamHellNo tag team partner]] Wrestling/{{Kane}}. They didn't really want to eliminate Daniel Bryan the way most examples of this trope do, they just wanted to keep him from becoming the WWE Champion, which they succeeded in, time and time again until WWE realized just how much people wanted to see Daniel Bryan win and finally threw him a bone, only to see him get injured and [[TheBadGuyWins written off TV via choke slam from Kane]].
* The Flood, an alliance gathered together from across time and space, featuring Milo Schnitzler, Jigsaw, Haack, Slaash, Dr. Cube's (from Wrestling/KaijuBigBattel) Posse ([[ReverseMole just Cube actually, the others were fakes]]), [[CircusOfFear Sinn Bodhi]]'s Odditorium (Bodhi, Qefka the Quiet, Oliver Grimsley), [[EvilForeigner The BDK]] (Ares, Tursas, [[Wrestling/HunterJohnston Delirious]], Nøkken), [[DiscoDan Sidney Bakabella]]'s Wrecking Crew (Bakabella, Max Smashmaster, Blaster [=McMassive=], Oleg The Usurper, Jaka, Flex Rumblecrunch), GEKIDO (The Shard, 17, [=DeviANT=], [=CombANT=], [=AssailANT=]) and Colony: Xtreme Force (Missile Assault Ant, Arctic Rescue Ant, Orbit Adventure Ant) the latter two both being ThePsychoRangers to the Colony, Jigsaw and Wrestling/MikeQuackenbush (yes, Jigsaw was on the same team as someone setup specifically to take him down, shut up, it's {{time travel}}). They were brought to aid Wrestling/JimmyJacobs, who in turn was working for [[TheManBehindTheMan Deucalion, The Titan of Titor]], in his efforts to kill off Wrestling/{{Chikara}}, which they nearly did, for the better part of a year.
* In 2014, Dixie Land (Dixie Carter, Magnus, [[Wrestling/EC3 Ethan Carter III]], Rockstar Spud), The Bromans (Robbie E, Zema Ion, Jessie Godderz), Bad Influence (Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels, Wrestling/FrankieKazarian), Wrestling/BobbyRoode and crooked referee Brian Stiffler all teamed up to rid Wrestling/{{TNA}} of Wrestling/AJStyles. In a single match. [[ForegoneConclusion They won.]] Then they repeated the same thing again with Wrestling/{{Sting}}, who had tried to help AJ.
* In 2014, "El Magnate" Juan Manuel Ortega joined with Mighty Ursus, Wrestling/JinderMahal, Wrestling/AbdullahTheButcher and Orlando Toledo to form an alliance to rid pro wrestling of the Colon family, starting in WWC with Wrestling/{{Carlito|Colon}}. Ortega also joined with Los Templarios(William De la Vega and ASH), Huracán Castillo and Miguel Pérez to eliminate Los Matadores Fernando and Diego(Eddie and Orlando Colon in masks).

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* There's a sort of example done apparently just for the sake of simplicity in the games ''Hero Quest'' and ''Space Crusade'', roughly based on ''{{TabletopGame/Warhammer}}'' and ''{{TabletopGame/Warhammer 40000}}'', respectively. In both games the bad guys are ostensibly "Chaos", but in fact their units are a combination of Orc, Undead and Chaos / Ork, Tyranid, Chaos Android and Chaos Space Marines characters, all united under the control of the same player to destroy humanity.
* ''TabletopGame/VillainsAndVigilantes'' has an introductory adventure, "Crisis at Crusader Citadel," which has an NPC hero team, the Crusaders, and the Crushers, a villain team made up of their archenemies. Although it only points out who a few of the feuds are between.

* The stage play ''Series/DoctorWho: The Ultimate Adventure'' uses this trope, combining Daleks and Cybermen for the first time (outside of "The Five Doctors," when the Dalek basically cameos), although the two sides (not surprisingly) end up feuding.
** Technically, the earlier stage play ''Doctor Who & the Seven Keys to Doomsday'' also uses the trope, combining Daleks with Clawrentulars, but since the latter have not appeared before or sense, they amount more to henchmen and one-off baddies.

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* The Sinister Syndicate in ''Ride/TheAmazingAdventuresOfSpiderMan'', which consists of Doctor Octopus, Hobgoblin, Electro, Hydro-Man, and Scream.
* The ''Theatre/{{Fantasmic}}'' water/light show at [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disneyland]] has a (rather tenuous) storyline where Mickey Mouse's dreams are being haunted by a team-up of [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Queen Grimhilde]], [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ursula]], [[{{Disney/Fantasia}} Chernabog]], and [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]]. In the Disney Hollywood Studios (formerly Disney MGM Studios) version, they're joined by [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians Cruella de Vil]], [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Jafar]], [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar]], [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Frollo]], and [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Hades]].

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'':
** In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'', various [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney Villains]] banded together under the command of Maleficent from ''Disney/SleepingBeauty''. As with most of the (relatively rare) video game cases, the villains didn't turn on each other; instead, the heroes [[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil picked them off one by one]]. Though Maleficent was the leader and the last required to fight, Hades was actually the most powerful (being a god and all) and thus, fighting him was left entirely optional until ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''.
** A few games later, [[spoiler: after more and more counterparts of [[BigBad Xehanort]] have shown up, there's an entire council of Xehanorts.]]
* In ''VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon'', alternate-universe counterparts of every major villain in the series that [[TheBadGuyWins achieved their goals in their respective universes]] [[BigBadEnsemble come together]] and are led by [[LegacyBossBattle Giovanni of Team Rocket]].
* The premise of ''VideoGame/NicktoonsUnite'' is that [[WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius Jimmy Neutron]]'s nemesis Professor Calamitous steals his plans for a dimensional portal to form an "Evil Syndicate" consisting of him, [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Vlad Plasmius]], [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Plankton]], and [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents Mr. Crocker]]. Naturally, Jimmy pulls the reverse and just like the first ''Kingdom Hearts'' mentioned above, you pick them off one by one 'till the pseudo-BossRush climax. And despite all four members being captured at the end, the syndicate reappeared three games later in ''Globs of Doom'' but with a different lineup of four (Plankton being the only "veteran" out of them) and ''only serving for a EnemyMine situation'' (Well, until the SnapBack). Nevertheless, both incarnations never got to infighting at all.
* ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' has a Legion made up of the main bosses from the first 10 ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games, headed by the god Chaos, and opposed by the heroes of the same. They're not exactly the most cooperative of groups: They seem to have split between the [[OmnicidalManiac Destroyers]], [[TheChessmaster Schemers]], [[HeelFaceTurn Defectors]], and those who are just plain following their own agenda. But really, that's what you get when you assemble people that are ''this'' unhinged and expect them to get along.
* In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl''[='=]s Subspace Emissary story mode, a group of villains, including playable characters Bowser, Ganondorf, and Wario, and [=NPCs=] Petey Piranha, Porky, and Ridley join under Master Hand, [[spoiler: who is secretly being controlled by Tabuu]], to make the Subspace Army. Bowser, Ganondorf, and Wario all end up eventually betraying the army, joining the heroes [[spoiler: once they realize they were just Tabuu's pawns.]] However, Ganondorf planned on overthrowing Master Hand and becoming the army's leader long [[spoiler:before he learned of Tabuu.]]
* ''VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance'' features a virtual army of supervillains forming a new Masters of Evil, as well as several cutscenes in which ComicBook/DoctorDoom plot his evil schemes along with his flunkies, er, allies, Loki, the Enchantress, Baron Mordo, and ComicBook/{{Ultron}} (one assumes Ultron was frequently pinched for forgetting to wear green).
* The Black Cloak Society of ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'' was ''designed'' as a passing mention in an incriminating letter for the sixth game. However, the way the letter's worded implies that at least three of the series' {{Big Bad}}s were part of the society...and possibly ''all of them'' were either members or allied with them. The FanRemake of the second game and the FanSequel have run with the "possibly all of them" theory.
* In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars2'', Bian Zoldark created the Divine Crusaders using the combined might of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam the Principality of Zeon]], [[Manga/GetterRobo the Dinosaur Empire]], and [[Anime/MazingerZ Dr. Hell's Mechanical Monsters]]. When Bian died, the Zabi family took over as the Neue DC and added new forces. However, unlike Bian's DC, the Zabi's version fell apart just as bad as it did with normal Zeon and by the fourth game, the only one of the original three still active was Dr. Hell!
* In ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'', the bad guys are an evil organization of all of Captain Blue's old villains, who have taken over since his defeat and living the life. [[spoiler:Turns out that it was Captain Blue himself who was their boss!]]
** And in the sequel, another evil organization takes their place, whose roster includes [[TheRival Alastor]] from the first game and Fire Leo's brother, Frost Tiger, [[spoiler:and is run by Joe's father, who's been corrupted by the Black Film and the Black V-Watch]].
* ''VideoGame/MarvelAvengersAlliance'' has most of Marvel's supervillains from Hydra to the Brotherhood of Mutants uniting and forming the Syndicate; their goal is to harness [[GreenRocks Iso-8]] (which is capable of enhancing people's powers) and take over the world.
* In the ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' expansion ''Cataclysm'', several previously unrelated factions that were fought many times in the game team up under the rule of [[OmnicidalManiac Deathwing]] and the [[EldritchAbomination Old Gods]] to fight the Alliance and the Horde: the [[TheRemnant Dark Horde]], the [[EvilCounterpartRace Dark Iron Clan]], the [[SnakePeople naga]], the [[{{Cult}} Twilight's Hammer]], the [[AlwaysChaoticEvil black dragonflight]], the [[MakeWrongWhatOnceWentRight infinite dragonflight]], the [[ElementalEmbodiment air and fire elementals]], and the [[{{Cthulhumanoid}} Faceless Ones]].
* ''VideoGame/LegoDimensions'' features the BigBad, Lord Vortech, uniting various villains such as the Joker, Lex Luthor, Riddler, Saruman the White, Sauron, Lord Business, and the Daleks to due his dirty work.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* The [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20081219.html Axis of...Something]] in ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'', comprising the guy who insists disagreeing with him makes Ethan "arrogant", Walter Mondale (seeking revenge on Reagan) and Faz. Their leader is a character who was fired from the store in her first appearance and has been plotting revenge ever since (ironically, this was what convinced Robin that nothing significant ever happened at Shortpacked, since none of the important characters were fired. Guess she really shouldn't have [[CerebusSyndrome pulled that drama tag]]). The Axis later [[http://www.shortpacked.com/index.php?id=2120 returned]], still led by Sydney Yus, with an even more absurd line-up (Malaya's roommate, because she never paid the rent on time; Ethan's counterpart in the [=McAwesome's=] SimilarSquad, rebuit as a cyborg; Mike because he was bored; and Leslie's ex-husband, who thought it was a bible study group.)
* ''Webcomic/TheCrossoverlord'' assembled one of these by gathering enemies of each story's main characters -- at least one for each hero, two in the case of Webcomic/{{Dasien}}, but none for Webcomic/TheGreenAvenger (maybe because her only enemy at the point was a walking alarm clock, or [[spoiler:because she was brainwashed]]).
* The [[http://www.galactanet.com/comic/view.php?strip=274 League of Recurring Antagonists]] in ''Webcomic/CaseyAndAndy''.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick,'' the Inter-Fiend Cooperation Commission is an alliance of the three fiendish races (demons, devils, and daemons), who have traditionally competed against each other -- though they aren't out to get anyone in particular, they just want to ''win''. It differs from most cases because its three leaders were never actually seen prior to the team-up. However, one recurring secondary villain (Sabine) was revealed to be working for them covertly behind her boss/boyfriend's back, and another minor villain introduced during the same arc (Qarr) was recruited to serve them during their initial appearance.
* The Dark Legion in ''Webcomic/DeviantUniverse'', which has had two incarnations of the course of the story.
* ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'':
** The Warriors of Darkness, four villains assembled to be the opposite number to the Warriors Of Light. In practice, they're a group of {{Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain}}s who range from being too harmless to being too moronic to be of any threat.
** The Warriors Of Light themselves could count too, at least on the "doom" part, having a kill streak spanning several continents' worth of genocide and the [[PhlebotinumKilledTheDinosaurs KT event]].
* ''Webcomic/ScaryGoRound'' has the League of Enemies, a team-up of people who've been defeated or foiled by Tim Jones. They're ultimately rather ineffectual, although they do unleash a zombie clone of Shelley on Tackleford. ItMakesSenseInContext, at least to them.
* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' fancomic ''Webcomic/The10Doctors'', apparently influenced by the lack of this trope in the series (see above), goes nuts with it. [[TheTrickster The Celestial Toymaker]] is working for [[AGodAmI Omega]]. The [[EnemyCivilWar Renegade Daleks]] are taking commands from [[EnemyWithout the Valeyard]]. [[MadScientist The Rani]] is assisting [[EnemyCivilWar Davros and the Imperial Daleks]], who are themselves controlling [[YouWillBeAssimilated the Cybermen]]. [[EvilCounterpart The Master]] is using the War Chief and the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Sontarans]] to form a massive fleet of Ice Warriors, Draconians, and many other aliens from the Doctor's past. And that's just for ''starters''.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* WebVideo/{{Decker}}: Various monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolfman and the Mummy team up to take over the world during Decker vs. Dracula.
* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', the Crimson Coalition is founded by various factions which have opposed the Grand Alliance...although lately many heroes have found out that the Coalition might not be as bad as it originally seemed to be when they learn of the noble goals of some of its members.
* The [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Evil League of Evil]] in ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'', led by Bad Horse and his terrible death whinny.
* Team Kimba of the Literature/WhateleyUniverse is viewing Elite League as this. They have fought the Young Turks twice before, and a lot of the Alphas, and Gold Stallion's gang. Now they're seeing a team made up some of the best of those groups.
* Roleplay/SuperSmashBrothersLifeItself Has this in the form of The Order of Despair, The Pollies and The New Pigmask Army.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' featured this thrice: the two versions of the Injustice Gang in the episodes "Fury" and "Injustice For All", and the Secret Society in the episode "Secret Society" (naturally, after the above comic). In the sequel series, ''Justice League Unlimited'', the latter expanded into a ''much'' larger and better organized group, the focus of its third-season arc. This incarnation was based off the Legion of Doom, and was called that behind the scenes. The entire third season was basically a homage to the aforementioned ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'', complete with [[spoiler:{{ComicBook/Darkseid}} showing up as the TrueFinalBoss to replace them]].
** The creators have admitted that they considered the massive villain group in JLU to be the Legion of Doom (complete with "Darth Vader head base in a swamp"), and generally referred to the group as such when discussing it, [[ExecutiveMeddling but had been explicitly told by DC that they could NOT use the Legion of Doom term.]] This is why the group is never actually named in the show, and why Luthor's allusion to the group implies it's related to the prior Secret Society. Note that Grodd corrects Luthor and implies the group ISN'T just a larger Secret Society -- but then fails to provide an alternate term. Interestingly, they ''were'' referred to as The Legion of Doom on the JLU Season 2 DVD box.
** ''Justice League'' also featured the Superman Revenge Squad, though they were not named as such.
** The original Secret Society was something of an inversion of this trope. Grodd uses his mental powers to make the heroes more irritable, causing them to give vent to grievances that they normally kept bottled up. This causes the dissolution of the League, much the same way that a normal Legion Of Doom will fall apart. Grodd even lampshades the common fate of Legions Of Doom, and seeks to avert it using trust-building exercises and training.
** The episode with the Justice Guild has the Injustice Guild, based on the Injustice Society.
** "Epilogue" briefly features the Iniquity Collective, a small collection of the [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond future Batman's]] rogues ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Parasite]]).
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'' fought the {{Trope Namer|s}} and the TropeCodifier.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Batfink}}'' had in episode 96 out of 100 a conglomeration of villains brought together by Tough Macduff, Batfink's 'Oldest Foe', though this is his first appearance. They consist of Manhole Manny, Big Ears Ernie, Gluey Louie, Stupidman, Skinny Minnie, Whip Van Winkle, Old King Cruel, Cinderobber, Swami Salami, Party Marty, Beanstalk Jack, Queenie Bee, Sporty Morty, Roz The Schnozz, and, to add insult to injury, Hugo A Go Go, the mad scientist. They tell Batfink to be branded a coward and leave town on a train. However, Batfink caches them all in a fishnet.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'',
** The episode "Meet the Beat-Alls" had Mojo Jojo, Him, Princess Morbucks and Fuzzy Lumpkins joining together to form the eponymous villain group. The episode was also [[ShoutOut almost entirely full of]] [[Music/TheBeatles Beatles]] song references and visual idioms.
** Another episode has one brief part near the ending where to get revenge on Buttercup (for repeatedly attacking them all with no provocation to get teeth in a typical tooth fairy story), a bunch of villains get together and beat her down.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'', "A Sitch In Time" (''sic''), wherein the biggest villains join up in a TimeTravel scheme, and get double-crossed by Drakken's sidekick Shego.
* The story arc of last season of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' concerns the [[Comicbook/DoomPatrol Brotherhood Of Evil]] recruiting most of the villains from previous episodes to wipe out the Titans and all the other young superheroes.
** The HIVE Five consists of Jinx, Gizmo, Mammoth, See-More, Billy Numerous and Kyd Wykkyd. When Kid Flash wondered why they called themselves [[NonIndicativeName the HIVE Five when there are six of them]], [[{{Beat}} none of them could come up with an explanation]] until See-More replied that "it sounded cooler".
* The last season of ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' with the Negative Ten, formed by Forever King Driscoll consisting of villains Ben has fought to steal an energy power unit from Mount Rushmore.
** ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' had the "And Then There Were-" two-parters, which featured Vilgax teaming up with Eon and Albedo, and then forming a team of evil alternate Bens from various parallel universes in order to conquer a reality where Ben never received the Omnitrix. Paradox would then summon a group of heroic Bens ([[FutureBadass Ben 10K]], [[ThirteenIsUnlucky Ben 23]], [[WhatIf Gwen 10]], and Ben from the original universe himself) to even the odds.
* ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' subverts this trope in the episode "The Last One", in which the Mooninites gather all the..."[[SitcomArchNemesis villains]]"...that have appeared in the series to form a Legion of Doom. After the group's decimated because of its members' stupidity and annoyance with each other, the survivors dub themselves "Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday" and launch an assault on the ATHF's home -- which, of course, [[ShaggyDogStory goes nowhere]].
* The enemies of ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' join forces to become the Fearsome Five, ([[EvilCounterpart NegaDuck]], [[ShockAndAwe Megavolt]], [[PlantPerson Bushroot]], [[MonsterClown Quackerjack]], and [[MakingASplash Liquidator]]) forcing Darkwing to create his own team, the Justice Ducks in the episode "Just Us Justice Ducks".
* Used (And made fun of) in the Third Season Premiere Show of ''WesternAnimation/DuckDodgers'', where nearly every minor one-or-two-episode villain was brought together (Sometimes from the dead) to form the Legion of Duck Doom, as the primary antagonists, Mars, were currently at peace with Earth. (Though by the end of the episode, the Legion is defeated, and war breaks out again.) There was even a CaptainErsatz of the [[WesternAnimation/SuperFriends Black Manta]] called the Black Eel (who really shouldn't of been there, as he had no quarrel with Dodgers).
* The Council of Doom was the collective name of ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost'''s sworn enemies: Brak, Zorak, Moltar, Black Widow, Creature King, and Metallus. It should be noted that the Council of Doom appeared over a decade before the {{Trope Namer|s}}.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'', Eustace organizes a team of former villains into a group in order to kill Courage, ranging from recurring (arguably) nemesis Katz to the giant foot fungus, apparently ignoring/forgetting that they've endangered his own life before. They all seek revenge against Courage for being the first who dared to deny them new victims. They then proceed to brutalize Courage in a game of Dodgeball before he buries them in an earthquake caused by his own ability to scream which is ironically what they made him do all the time.
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' has a slew of B-list villains, and in one episode they come together to form the Society of Ultimate Villainy, to try and not get beaten up for a change. Hilarity ensues. [[spoiler:Even all together, they ''still'' get upstaged by a Decepticon.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim'' faced a team composed of all the major villains from his cartoon series. The stake? An egg-beater! No, a normal egg-beater, like the kind you have in your kitchen. Don't question the humor!
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' features a coalition of The Dirty Bubble, Manray, and the recently-turned-evil Barnacle Boy ([[InsistentTerminology "That's Barnacle Man!"]]), calling themselves "Every Villain Is Lemons" (E.V.I.L.). This being ''[=SpongeBob=]'', they accomplish about as much as you'd expect.
* Apex tried to make one in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SushiPack'' (partly as ThePlan), but due to the villains' lack of respect for each other, they barely got past the planning stages.
* Used in the ''WesternAnimation/LoonaticsUnleashed'' 1st SeasonFinale where four of the season's villains were gathered by [[BigBad Optimatus]].
* ''WesternAnimation/GodzillaTheSeries'' "Monster Wars" episodes had a MonsterOfTheWeek version of this, complete with [[spoiler:a resurrected Zilla, the original American Godzilla, as "Cyber-zilla"]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'':
** The Crimson Chin webisodes had "The Body of Evil".
** In "Escape from Unwish Island", Timmy's vengeful no-longer-imaginary friend Gary assembles all of Timmy's 'most violent Timmy hating wishes' that Timmy had unwished (as well as a Sphinx that he didn't) to get payback on Timmy for 'abandoning' them. Though they manage to win, Timmy works things out with them.
** In "[[SuperheroEpisode The Big Superhero Wish]]", Timmy makes the world like a comicbook, resulting in superheroes and villains. Taking advantage, the Nega Chin (the Crimson Chin's alternate reality evil self) forms a supervillain group out of the now superpowered Crocker, Vicky, and Francis, complete with a swamp-based 'hall of evil'. While they manage to win and take over the world, they're ultimately defeated by [[spoiler:Timmy and his powerless friends]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'', five of Johnny's past foes form the 'Johnny Stopping Evil Force Five' to take their revenge, complete with a 'swamp lair'. Similar to their counterparts, they actually manage to hold together and reappear in several future episodes.
* LAMOS, [[FunWithAcronyms (League Aiming to Menace and Overthrow Spies)]], for the fourth season of ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman's'' done this at least twice: "Team Penguin" in the episode of the same name, and briefly in "The Batman/Superman Story, Part One". However, the latter is sort of subverted as it may be members of Bats's RoguesGallery teaming up, [[spoiler:but they were assembled to fight against ''Superman'']].
* The 1967 ''[[WesternAnimation/SpiderMan1967 Spider-Man]]'' animated series in one of the last episodes has three foes who had each appeared in two episodes, Electro, Green Goblin, and the Vulture, being broken out of jail by exclusive-show villain who had already appeared, the Invisible Scientist Dr. Noah Boddy. Spider-Man tricks them into fighting each other with a crash course in ventriloquism, then webs up Noah Boddy.
* ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' has the Sinister Six, though they were called the Insidious Six because of worries over using "sinister" on a kids show.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''
** The 200th episode did this with Creator/TomCruise gathering celebrities that the show had made fun of, like Rob Reiner, Creator/ParisHilton, Creator/GeorgeLucas, Creator/MelGibson, etc. Trey Parker and Matt Stone even used the term "Legion Of Doom" when referring to this episode in an interview.
** The episode "Krazy Kripples" had Creator/ChristopherReeve create a Legion of Doom consisting of various DC and Marvel villains as well as UsefulNotes/SaddamHussein, UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden, [[HarmlessVillain Professor Chaos]], and [[HypercompetentSidekick General Disarray]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TheTick'' spoofs this in "The Tick vs. Arthur's Bank Account" with a villain team consisting of villains The Terror, The Human Ton and Handy, The Man-Eating Cow, Joseph Stalingrad [[note]]"A former-graduate student in Russian studies-turned-supervillain"[[/note]], and the alien Tuun-La.
* ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'' episode "Katastrophe" begins with a chance meeting between DiabolicalMastermind Dark Kat and MadScientist Dr. Viper. They recruit {{Killer Robot}}s the Metallikats to create an "Alliance of Evil" with only one goal: "Destroy the SWAT Kats!"
* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor''
** The very first time it happened in was in "Operation: M.O.V.I.E.", where Numbah Four tries to get into an R-rated movie, only to find that it's a very large gathering of the [=KND=]'s RoguesGallery, summoned by Mr. Boss.
** A larger scale version happened in ''WesternAnimation/OperationZERO'', where Father (and later Grandfather) uses every possible villain against the KND. It is even stated early on that the KND had never faced such a coordinated attack from their adult enemies before.
** Minor example in "Operation: F.L.U.S.H.", where Mr. Boss (again) gathers a FiveBadBand version of this, only for the [[HarmlessVillain Toiletnator]], rejected from the group, to defeat them on his own, since he mistook ''them'' for the KND!
** Another FiveBadBand would be in "Operation: M.I.S.S.I.O.N.", only it's ''Numbuh Four'' who assembles four incarcerated villains...for a bowling match against his father.
* Mirroring the comics it is based off of, ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' has the Enchantress gathering up various villains to form the Masters of Evil. And then she gives the reins to Baron Zemo, for some reason.
** "Zemo is but a toy. To be discarded when I tire of him."
* ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'' features the above-mentioned Cabal from ''ComicBook/DarkReign'' as the principal antagonists. ComicBook/RedSkull even explicitly states that he formed them as the villainous equivalent of the Avengers.
* The Knights of Vengeance from ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' could be seen as one, as it was a gathering of various Phobos cronies united by Nerissa.
* The Injustice League and the Light from ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''. As an [[MythologyGag Easter Egg]], the Injustice League's hideout is an homage to the Legion of Doom's lair from ''Superfriends''.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' mentions the Legion of Doom by name, when during Lois's bid for mayor, she claims they've teamed up with [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler Hitler]] to assassinate UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}}. Cut to the Legion, with Solomon Grundy admitting he "dropped the ball on this one."
* ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'''s series finale, after getting its own plotline resolved, ended with our heroes facing a Legion composed of ''every single villain in the series''.
** The second season finale featured a smaller Legion formed by Jack Spicer. They had the heroes on the ropes for a while until [[BigBad Chase Young]] stepped in and went EvilerThanThou on them.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMask'' episode "Convention of Evil", where most of the RoguesGallery attend a therapy session hosted by recurring character, psychologist Dr. Neumann. [[spoiler:The climax of the episode reveals that The Mask is in the meeting, disguised as Neumann himself.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold''
** The Legion of Doom is featured in the episode "Triumverate of Terror!" The episode sees ComicBook/TheJoker joining forces with ComicBook/LexLuthor and the Cheetah to finally do away with Batman, Franchise/{{Superman}}, and Franchise/WonderWoman once and for all.
** The ColdOpening of that episode was a baseball game between the Justice League International and the Legion of Doom, with Joker, Luthor and Cheetah united with Weather Wizard, Clock King, Chronos, Felix Faust, and Amazo.
** "Night of the Batmen!" features an instance of a number of Batman's foes teaming up to take advantage of Gotham City while the Dark Knight is in traction.
* ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'' episode "Enemies Mine".
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' uses the Sinister Six twice. The first time has Docter Octopus, Electro, Sandman, Rhino, Shocker, and Vulture. The second team up trades Doc Ock and Shocker for Mysterio and Kraven.
* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' episode 'Legion of Evil', the titular Legion ''is'' made up of Jenny's enemies. The twist is that its membership consists of her least-threatening enemies; The Hammer Bros, Lancer, Mudslinger, and led by Dr. Wakeman's deranged lab rat Vladimir. Jenny was not impressed.
-->'''Jenny:''' Your name is Mr. Scruffles, your Legion is a bunch of B-list villains, and your secret lair smells like fish.
* In ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', the episode "Exit 9B" has a Legion of Doom formed from the bad guys that got killed over the past 3 seasons, [[spoiler:all led by the son of Garrett Bobby Ferguson]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'' had the League of Villains.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ActionMan2000'', Dr. X runs a villainous team to further his schemes. In fact, it's ''literally called'' "The Council Of Doom".
* ''WesternAnimation/EvilConCarne'': Hector once decided to unite all villains and form the "League of Destruction". The villains argued among themselves about who'd be the leader. By the time TheHero arrived at the Headquarters to stop them, the League of Destruction had lived up to the name by destroying itself.
* In [[DeconstructiveParody true fashion for the series]], ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' has the "Guild of Calamitous Intent," which functions more as a trade guild for organized supervillainy, fitting that the "professional" villains are more PunchClockVillain, who do evil as their day to day and not really out of a will to wreak havoc. The villains outside the guild are the ones you really want to fear, as they don't play by "the rules." The series also brings together "The Revenge Society", including rogue villains such as Baron Underbheit, Phantom Limb, [[spoiler:Professor Richard Impossible]], and Fat Chance, who play this trope straight.
** A more Direct parody later appeared in the form of The Doom Factory a group of supervillains DoingItForTheArt. Their leader was a CompositeCharacter of Lex Luthor and (of all people) Creator/AndyWarhol. [[spoiler:They were all killed when their base was [[BadAssUnintentional accidentally]] blown up by the Blue Morpho (the monarch)]]
* The end of the the penultimate episode of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' "Gumbaldia" before the hour-long series finale, Gumbald who is the BigBad of Season 9 has gathered everyone who hates the Candy Kingdom and fought against Finn and Jake before for war against Princess Bubblegum. These foes include [[spoiler:[[TheDragon Fern]]. Ricardio, the Squirrel who hates Jake, Me-Mow, Ash, Bandit Princess, Scorcher, Peace Master, Samantha, Sir Slicer, Pete Sassafras, and... The Ice King and Gunther.]]
* Spoofed briefly in the season 15 episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' "Fraudcast News," where Mr. Burns tells Smithers to "Assemble the League of Evil", a seemingly multi-ethnic team of villains (a samurai warlord, a Nazi SS officer, and an Arab Sheikh, along with a cowboy and a scientist). They were only identifiable by their clothing, as Burns had kept them stored away in a compartment in his office, and they had long since suffocated and died. As Mr. Smithers observed, "[[ForgotToFeedTheMonster even monsters need air.]]"
* The GrandFinale of ''WesternAnimation/{{Underdog}}'' has [[BigBad Simon BarSinister]] gather recurring villain Riff Raff and one-off baddies Battyman and the Electric Eel for a final showdown with the titular canine hero. [[spoiler: They all seemingly perish when Underdog uses Simon's vacuum gun on them, after which it explodes. Presumably this explains why Underdog didn't need to keep fighting crime.]]
* ''[[WesternAnimation/MickeysHouseOfVillains Mickey's House of Villains]]'' features [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Jafar]] recruiting a team consisting of [[Disney/PeterPan Captain Hook]], [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians Cruella [=DeVille=]]], [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ursula]], and [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Hades]] to take over the WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse. Eventually all of the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon villains come to join their army, and some notable additions to the crew post-takeover include [[Disney/TheJungleBook Kaa]], [[Disney/AliceInWonderland the Queen of Hearts]], [[WesternAnimation/TheThreeLittlePigs the Big Bad Wolf]], and [[Disney/{{Fantasia}} Chernabog]].
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987'' had [[BigBad Shredder]] gather a number of recurring, one-shot, and brand-new villains, including the Rat King, Leatherhead, [[EvilTwin Slash]], Tempestra, Antrax, Scumbug, and Chrome-Dome to oppose the Turtles, leading to the Turtles allying with a cavalcade of their own recurring supporting allies to defeat them.
* Played with in the ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' episode [[Recap/TheLegendOfKorraS4E8Remembrances Remembrances]]. In it, Varrick explains his idea for a new movie, where the four previous {{Big Bad}}s, Zaheer, Vaatu, Amon and Evil Unalaq team up to defeat Bolin and take over the world. Varrick almost exactly mentions this trope by name, by suggesting this ensemble should be called the Legion of Darkness.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPandaLegendsOfAwesomeness'' two parter "Emperor's Rule", after the new BigBad takes out the Furious Five, Po breaks Fung, Gah-Ri, Taotie, Tong Fo, Temutai and Hundun out of prison. They capture him before he can convince him this is an EnemyMine situation, but he eventually talks them round. Taotie calls the group the Brotherhood of Malfeasance, but it doesn't catch on.
* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooFrankencreepy'' has [[spoiler: several of the criminals the gang busted during the original series]] team up to destroy the Mystery Inc. teens.
* Dr. Doofenshmirtz of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' attempts to invoke this by gathering the other evil scientists in the Tri-State area and form the League Of Villainous Evildoers Maniacally United For Frightening Investments in Naughtiness. Then one of the scientists points out that the acronym spells L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N..
* ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfSuperman'' had A.P.E. (Allied Perpetrators of Evil); consisting of Lex Luthor, the Warlock, Toyman and the Prankster who united in an attempt to take down Superman.
