This is a generally villainous organization with mysterious goals and many distinct characters, usually wearing theme outfits. May start out as an OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness before getting more time in the spotlight. Unlike a LegionOfDoom, they're generally introduced as a bunch of new characters, rather than being a new alliance of [[RoguesGallery old foes]]. Larger than a QuirkyMinibossSquad, and treated much more seriously (less quirk, more Boss). While they may have access to or be associated with a NebulousEvilOrganization, they are generally not nebulous, but rather have a set number of members, though they may qualify if their ''influence'' is nebulous or if they have numerous underlings who do not qualify as full members. They also tend to become a SpotlightStealingSquad.

The Standard Evil Organization Squad generally serves as either the BigBad or CoDragons on a large scale (or both, since the leader is often the ''true'' BigBad), and thus are generally a major threat.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* The Espada from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' (though they are technically a rank within an evil army, not a group in their own right). The Gotei 13 qualify as a version that pulled a HeelFaceTurn, though they technically weren't evil in the first place.
* The Homunculi from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''.
* The Innovators are portrayed this way in ''{{Gundam 00}}''.
* The One Shadow Nine Fists from ''[[KenichiTheMightiestDisciple History's Mightiest Disciple Kenichi]]''.
* The Akatsuki from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''.
* The Devils of Kimon from ''NinjaScroll''.
* OnePiece: Baroque Works is missing only standardized outfits. Like [[{{Naruto}} Akatsuki]], they work in pairs, in each case, a guy and a girl, with the guys numbered a la the Espada.
** The Cipher Pol 9 two sagas later also qualify.
* The Juppongatana from ''RurouniKenshin''
* The Numbers in ''{{Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS}}''.
* The Dark Signers of ''YuGiOh5Ds''.
* The Noah family from ''Manga/DGrayMan''.
* The Band of Seven/Shichinintai in ''Manga/InuYasha''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* The Seven Evil Exes from ''ScottPilgrim''. Though they lack standardized uniforms or any sort of theme among them, they are introduced one-by-one, [[spoiler:except for the Katayanagi twins]]. They even fall under [[spoiler:TheSmurfettePrinciple]]!
* The Hellfire Club from the famous DarkPhoenixSaga of ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'', all with ''fabulous'' clothing.
* In BronzeAge DCComics, Marv Wolfman invented the Hive. They fought {{Superman}} a few times, but became much more associated with the Comicbook/TeenTitans.
* The [[{{Comicbook/Avengers}} Avengers]] have a group of astrology-themed enemies called Zodiac.
* The Comicbook/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica fights the playing card themed Royal Flush Gang.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:FanFic]]
* FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi: Ami's minions start out as just another Keeper's band of thugs to the surface world. This changes following Ami's defeat of[[spoiler: The Avatar of All Light]]. It is clear from the Spymaster's subplot that after this the surface world is scrambleing to discover the source of this incredibly powerful new keeper, uncover her motives and prepare countermeasures for her continued menace. [[NebulousEvilOrganization Of course, they meet with limited success]] [[DiabolusExNihilo due to her]] [[OutsideContextVillain origions]]. Of course, this is [[spoiler: [[Anime/SailorMoon Sailor Mercury]]]] we're talking about. [[GoodRunningEvil So it's an inversion]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Scorpia from ''Literature/AlexRider''. They may qualify as a NebulousEvilOrganization, but they don't seem to have too many members.
** They have hundreds if not thousands of members, but the leadership is a council of the worlds most notorious spies, assassins, criminals and terrorists who play this straight.
* Though framed as a NebulousEvilOrganization in-story, the Death Eaters (basically [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything the Ku Klux Klan with magic powers]]) from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' [[OddlySmallOrganization arguably qualify]].
* The Forsaken from ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' fit this to a T.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* The Hateocracy from ''TheBoondocks''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The pictured Organization XIII from ''Franchise/KingdomHearts''. They were an OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness in their debut game, ''[[KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories Chain of Memories]]'' (where not much was known about them aside from sharing the same coat), but in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' and ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2 358/2 Days]]'', they became this (particularly in the latter game, as they were featured as the [[VillainProtagonist protagonists]] there and thus got ''much'' more screentime.)
* Those from the Past from ''{{The King of Fighters}}''.
* ''Pokémon'' has almost one per game, usually based off of a real-life organization. To name a few: [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Team]] [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Rocket]], [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Team Aqua/Magma]], [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Team Galactic]], [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Team Plasma]], [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Team Flare]]...
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* ''{{Homestuck}}'' has two. The first is the canonical Trolls, a group of twelve aliens ([[UnreliableExpositor or so they claim]]) whose T-shirts follow an Astrological theme (each bears the symbol of one of the Astrological signs). Following the format of ''Homestuck'', they are introduced one-by-one. [[spoiler: Subverted in that most of them aren't really evil. They aren't particularly organized either.]]
** The second group is from the ShowWithinAShow ''The Midnight Crew''. The primary antagonists of the series are [[color:#2ED73A: The Felt]], who are a group of 15 [[TimeTravel time-travelers]] with a billiard-ball theme (each character corresponds to a ball). [[spoiler:They have recently been revealed, in a form of in-universe {{Defictionalization}}, to actually exist in continuity with the main story.]]
*** The Midnight Crew itself could count, if not for the fact that the group consists only of four people.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* The Legion Ex Machina from ''WesternAnimation/BigGuyAndRustyTheBoyRobot''.
* The Pack from ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'' straddle the line between this and a serious QuirkyMinibossSquad.
* While the membership of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'''s The Light would form a LegionOfDoom in most other continuities, they way the overarching plot is structured makes them this trope, after half a season as an OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness.
