* Ghouls from ''{{Hellsing}}''. Mindless, infinitely disposable, and created en masse by inexperienced vampires.
* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': [[TheDragon Baron Ashura's]] Iron Masks and [[TheDragon Count Brocken's]] Iron Cross. They were mindless, obedient cyborgs Dr. Hell created using corpses. The former ones vaguely resembled an ancient Greek soldier whereas the later ones look like modern soldiers. Knowing who are their commanders, it is pretty logical.
** The Mykene soldiers and spies from ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' and the Vegan troops from ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' also count.
* The Galactor Troopers from ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman'' qualify as Mooks.
* The typical low rank Marines in ''OnePiece''. Luffy can defeat hundreds at once, and their role is just typically to showcase the abilities of a certain character (and freak out about how crazy he is,) then continue the attack so that they can get mowed down some more. True to form, they are frequently endless, for all intents and purposes.
** Don Krieg's [[ZergRush armada]] is an earlier example. With 50 ships and 5000 men, East Blue calls it an invasion force. The Grand Line? ''Target practice''.
** This gets played for laughs in the Straw Hat crew. Zoro has once dubbed Sanji "Pirate A". Sanji did not take his mook status well.
** An interesting occasion comes up in the climax of the Enies Lobby arc, in which two hundred Marine Captains are sent after the Straw Hats. The Straw Hats are initially concerned about this, as that's the rank [[ImplacableMan Smoker]] was when they last saw him. Fortunately, it turns out that Smoker's CowboyCop tendencies kept him [[AlmightyJanitor at a rank far lower than what suited his skills]], and the rest of the Captains weren't nearly that strong.
** By the time a pirate hits the New World, an army of mooks is pretty much useless. Thanks to the ability "Conquerer's Haki" (which Luffy has), one can impose their will on someone, and, if their will is weak enough, knock them out. Luffy used this ability in the Fishman Island arc to knock out '''''50,000''''' mooks in one blast -- and the only reason he didn't knock out the ''other'' 50,000 is because his crew needed someone to fight.
* Pick any ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' show. Chances are, there's gonna be a notable Mook from it. For just a few examples...
** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' has the ever-iconic Zaku Mk II.
** ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' opts for the Hizack, which is basically a Mk II piloted by different people.
** ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' tends to be lacking in this, but the Death Army certainly counts.
** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' has the Leo, noteworthy for being the Mookiest of all Gundam Mooks.
** ''Anime/AfterWarGundamX'' has fewer of these due to the AfterTheEnd setting, but the Daughtress variants qualify.
** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'' has the [[{{Expy}} suspiciously Zaku-like]] GINN as the ZAFT Mook of choice.
** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' carries many Mook-like mobile suits within its roster, but the most notable would definitely be the Union Flag.
* When some Ryozanpaku masters in ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' tell Kenichi that he is not as good a fighter as he ought to be because he didn't defeat his last opponent fast enough, Shigure, who nurtures some [[CoolBigSis sisterly feelings]] towards Kenichi, tries to defend him by telling them that the opponent threw too many mooks at him. This provokes the following responses from them:
-->'''Sakaki:''' (''laughing'') There's no need to count trash... I once took out a master who had over 100 underlings.\\
'''Ma Kensei:''' I once slipped through 1000 soldiers and only took out the commander.\\
'''[[{{Manchild}} Apachai]]:''' I once completely annihilated [[ComicallyMissingThePoint all my enemies and allies]].
* Terrorists, cartel goons, Nazis, mercenaries, yakuza punks, and other no-name bad guys tend to die in droves whenever the crew of the Lagoon Company or one of the many other {{Badass}}es of ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' swings into action.
** Balalaika's ''Vysotniki'' are EliteMooks. Most of them are nameless. They have no faces and personalities to remember, and have no storyline role apart from "Balalaika's muscle." Nonetheless, most of the above-mentioned badasses in the show recognize attacking them as nothing short of suicide, not the very least because Balalaika herself has a policy of coming down like the Wrath of God upon those who dare to hurt or kill them.
* ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' has mooks by the truckload, every one of them a cruel despoiler of the innocent. When Kenshiro shows up, their life expectancy usually drops to zero in [[YourHeadASplode quite messy fashion]].
* Zombies generally have a soft spot for being mooks. In [[KaraNoKyoukai the fifth movie of Kara no Kyoukai]], it gets even worse than that. Simply put? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBrWcKIteAo&NR=1&fmt=22 Ryougi Shiki is a human wheat thresher.]]
* Anyone below lieutenant rank in Manga/{{Bleach}}'s Soul Society arc, and any arrancar other than the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Espada]] in the arrancar arc. The Espadas' direct subordinates are EliteMooks.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'': Every [[MonsterOfTheWeek witch]] that we see the labyrinth of has minions. Said minions utterly fail to be any kind of threat, and [[AllThereInTheManual secondary material]] indicates most of them weren't really designed for combat anyway.
