* ''VideoGame/BraveFencerMusashi'' had the Leader's Force, consisting of Ben, Ed, and Topo. They constantly fought amidst themselves over who was the leader of the three.
* ''VideoGame/GodHand'':
** Mad Midget Five is a team of 5 midget Power Rangers with themes based around the suits of cards, led by Joker. Unlike most other Quirky Miniboss Squads, they are actually quite tough like all the other bosses in that game.
** ''God Hand'' also has the Three Evil Stooges, who took Gene's arm in the game's backstory.
* The Dark Knights in ''TacticsOgre''. Despite that most of them really aren't that quirky, some like Barbas do have a tendency to show off how powerful their discovery of a "gun" is only to shoot one of their own men.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'': Sandy, Cindy and Mindy (Japanese: Dog, Mag and Rag), the Magus Sisters.
* The Turks, a subdivision of the Shinra corporation, from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' are a classic example.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' Raijin and Fujin, Seifer's two sidekicks with their funny speech patterns. Raijin ends every sentence with "ya know?", (including a moment of silence in the beginning of the game). Fujin uses one to two word phrases, and speaks in ALL CAPS. It's a plot point when, near the end of the third disk, [[spoiler:Fujin speaks normally and asks you to bring the Seifer they know back.]]
* The Four Guardians from the ''MegaManZero'' games, who each lead a specific section of the Neo Arcadian army. Harpuia leads the airborne division, Fefnir the ground troops, Leviathan the navy, and Phantom the stealth units and intelligence division. And they have [[{{Expy}} expies]] in the four enemy [=MegaMen=] in the SequelSeries, ''MegaManZX'' (specifically, ''Advent'').
* The Hell Hounds in the ''VideoGame/GalaxyAngel'' gameverse, although they're much more serious (and creepy) in the manga.
* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'':
** The Axem Rangers of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'', who are a FiveBadBand parody of ''PowerRangers''/''SuperSentai''.
** The Koopa Bros. in ''VideoGame/PaperMario'', who were an obvious parody of Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles.
** ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' has the [[TheHecateSisters Shadow Sirens]].
** In ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'', Count Bleck's minions (O'Chunks, Mimi, Dimentio, SixthRanger Mr. L, and [[TheDragon dragon]] Nastasia) also count. Notably, [[spoiler: one of its members ends up [[TheStarscream replacing]] Bleck as the BigBad]]. Also, you [[TheUnfought never fight]] [[spoiler: Nastasia, who is equal parts [[MissionControl secretary]] and [[DoggedNiceGuy Dogged Evil Chick]].]]
** The Koopalings, especially their [[SuperMarioBrosSuperShow cartoon incarnation]].
* Solt and Peppor from ''VideoGame/ChronoCross''. They appear at seemingly arbitrary points in the game, their appearances never move the plot forward, and they are so much weaker then the party during their later appearance that they begin to border on IneffectualSympatheticVillain status. That is until [[spoiler:they call out their superior, Karsh, for the murder of Dario, and actually ''do'' get serious. This fight is completely optional, and they actually make credible threats in this go around]].
** During one (and only one) appearance in one of the many alternate story paths, they even have a third member- the hulking Ketchop, who to their dismay started using Solt and Peppor as weapons.
** And then there's the Dragoon Devas, consisting of the aforementioned Karsch (with betrayal issues), Marcy (get your ass kicked by a 9-year-old TykeBomb), and Zoah (hulking, loud giant behind a mask). They at least join the party after a while.
** Magus' three "sidekicks" from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'': Ozzie, Slash, and Flea.
* The Minions of Saruin from ''RomancingSaGa''. However they are not as quirky or bumbling like other minions in other games, since everything bad that has happened was because of their actions. [[spoiler: You actually have to end up fighting all 3 in the final dungeon in the original SNES Version, but in the PS2 Remake you only had to fight one, however if you defeated all 3 in the final dungeon, then you have the same results as the SNES version]]
* The fighting polygon/wireframe/alloy Teams from the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series.
* ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' had Star Wolf, a group of four pilots in ships that were identical to your team's; if you defeated them, they came back later as cyborgs with improved ships on the hard route (even if you didn't take the path where you fight them normally first. They also appear in the pretty much same way in ''Assault'' and ''Command'', but with two of the original members gone and only one replacement, and with a dose of DefeatMeansFriendship and EnemyMine.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' had court jesters Zorn and Thorn, who later turned out to be less "quirky" and more ''[[MonsterClown freaky]]''. It also had the Black Waltz, a trio of [[EliteMooks elite]] Black Mages.
* The Inspectors from ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars3'' and ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration 2'' except for their leader Wendolo is protrayed this way, they even argue who is the leader of the four minor Inspectors.
* The Machinery Children in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Alpha Gaiden]]'' and ''Original Generation 2'' are another instance of this.
* Pike the sadomasochist and Gillan the crossdresser from from the third [[SummonNight Summon Night]]: Swordcraft Story game.
* The Elements from ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}''. Much of their quirkiness is due to the interplay between ditzy Seraphita and RobotGirl Tolone, and HotBlooded Dominia and TheStoic Kelvena.
* Most of the Franchise/MetalGear games have their own distinctive boss squade. Of course, these being Metal Gear games, they are portrayed relatively realistically, at least compared to other examples, replacing "Quirky" with "Homicidal", "Batshit Insane" and "Nightmarish".
** Special Forces Group FOX-HOUND in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''
** Dead Cell in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2''
** The Cobras in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3''
** The FOX Unit in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPortableOps''
** The Beauty & The Beast Corps in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4''
** The Winds of Destruction in ''VIdeoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance''
** Black Chamber in ''VideoGame/MetalGearGhostBabel''
** The Three Test Subjects in ''VideoGame/MetalGearAcid 2''
* The Prism Rangers in the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' series.
* The Black Fang from ''[[FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]''. And inside of it, the Four Fangs ([[spoiler:one of its members, Jaffar, will go under a HeelFaceTurn and join your group]]).
** The ''FireEmblem'' series in general has used this trope in every game since ''Binding Blade'', possibly earlier. Most of these squads have three or four members; of those, one is often recruitable, and one is often fought either in the endgame or the chapter right before it.
* The four bosses from the Duelhorn storyline in ''FinalFantasyTacticsA2'' appear to be pretty much this, but you never fight them together and they actually overthrow their superiors (that you never meet) at the end.
* E-101 Beta, E-103 Delta, E-104 Epsilon and E-105 Zeta from ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' (with [[spoiler:a remodeled]] Beta as TheDragon). [[spoiler:E-102 "Gamma" has a HeelFaceTurn and decides to rebel against his robot brothers.]]
** ''VideoGame/SonicLostWorld'' has the Deadly Six. However, about a third of the way into the game, they become more of a Quirky BigBad Squad.
* Nana, Saki and Mio in ''VideoGame/{{Grandia}}''.
* ''VideoGame/ApeEscape'': The Freaky Monkey Five fits this to a tee.
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has the Four Horsemen from Naxxramas; they fight as a group but are very distinct from each other. Mograine is [[BloodKnight aggressive and martial]], Lady Blaumeux is [[TheBaroness cruel and bloodthirsty]], Thane Korth'azz [[ArrogantKungFuGuy insults the players]], and Sir Zeliek is a ''good guy'' [[PeoplePuppets acting against his own will]]. They have arguments as the players approach, and each have their own comments and quips during the battle. In ''Wrath of the Lich King'', [[spoiler:Mograine is replaced by Baron Rivendare from Stratholme, who has pretty much the same role and personality]].
* ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'''s Admirals perform this role, forming bosses yet being completely pointless to the story, with a few notable exceptions.
* ''VideoGame/CaveStory'''s Balrog and Misery are a two-critter QuirkyMinibossSquad. Balrog fits this trope to a T, getting no respect, showing limited intelligence, and generally being [[TooFunnyToBeEvil amusing to the point of likeability]]. Misery fills the role of the Dragon squad-leader. You may think this doesn't add up to an entire squad, but Balrog is [[TheBrute more than ample enough]] to make up for it...
* ''VideoGame/PokemonRanger'' has the Go-Rock Quads.
** The sequel ''Shadows of Almia'' also has the Sinis Trio.
** It's sequel, ''Guardian Signs'' has the Pokemon Pincher Admin Trio. Two members play the trope straight, the other [[spoiler: [[DragonAscendant actually becomes]] the real BigBad of the game.]]
** ''VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness'' also has the Hexagon Brothers.
** ''Pokémon Yellow'' features Jessie and James from the anime series.
* ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' has the Seven Sisters of Purgatory, a team of [[RedEyesTakeWarning red-eyed]] {{Ms Fanservice}}s with NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast, each representing one of the SevenDeadlySins. Although they commit numerous murders, they're also just playful sisters that later [[spoiler:are summoned by the protagonist's sister, Ange, as her only remaining friends.]] One of them lets the protagonist chase her around for stealing his breakfast, so "quirky" is a good word for it. [[spoiler: They also like to [[ImTakingHerHomeWithMe smother]] Maria's stuffed lion-turned Sakutaro]]. Later on [[spoiler:the Siestas appear]]. And then [[spoiler:the Eiserne Jungfrau show up]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 1}}'' has the Quarter Knights (Belselk/Berserk, Alhazad, Lady Harken, and Zeikfried/Siegfried), who play with this trope a bit. Belselk is killed off early on in the game, only to be replaced by Boomerang. Also, [[spoiler: when the BigBad that they are trying to revive ends up wanting to destroy the world rather than conquer it, they ''betray'' her.]] Even after [[spoiler: Mother [[BackFromTheDead revives herself]] and [[DemonicPossession possesses Zeikfried]],]] they still remain a prominent threat, rather than becoming a GoldfishPoopGang. In fact, [[spoiler: Zeikfried defies all odds and ends up surviving Mother's possession to become the final boss.]]
* The ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'' series has:
** The Malice Four in the original NES game.
** The Demon Clan in ''Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos''
** The Four Great Beasts in ''Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom''
** The Greater Fiends in the first two Xbox games.
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' has the Testaments, a group of cloaked figures which are actually [[spoiler: people who died, but [[BackFromTheDead were revived by Wilhelm]]]]
* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' has several, including [[BigBad Lord Recluse]] [[FiveBadBand and his lackeys]], and also ''their'' lackeys, who being supervillains have plenty of natural quirks.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' tends to have single bosses rather than squads, but the Prismriver Sisters fall into this trope. ''Touhou'' fanworks also have "Team 9" led by Cirno, who are always getting into some manner of mischief or another.
* ''VideoGame/CannonDancer'' has the Teki ("Barbarians"), a group of three elite warriors. Kirin, their former ally, battles each of them throughout the game (the order being determined by a pair of branching paths), then all at once in the final stage in a [[AttackPatternAlpha formation]] they call, "[[GratuitousGerman Die Rudeltaktik]]."
* In the ''KingOfFighters'', you have the [[MeaningfulName Four Heavenly Kings]] of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Hakkesshu]], headed by Leopold Goenitz, TheDragon to [[BigBad Orochi]]. Subverted in the character of [[PsychoForHire Ryuji Yamasaki]], in that he is a member of the Hakkesshu, but couldn't care less about Orochi.
* ''VideoGame/{{Ys}} IV''(both versions) has the Clan of Darkness, ''V'' has the three mages, and ''VI'' has the Fairies, who [[FlunkyBoss fight alongside]] Ernst in the penultimate battle.
* In ''AdvanceWars'' games from ''Black Hole Rising'' and onwards, the BigBad of the evil faction usually has one of these. ''Black Hole Rising'' has Sturm employing Flak, Lash, Adder and Hawke (with Hawke being TheDragon) and ''Dual Strike'' has Von Bolt employing Jugger, Koal and Kindle, with Lash and Hawke returning from the former game (Kindle is TheDragon this time around). And they are ''very'' quirky. In ''Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict'' there are two 'evil' sides and each of them are too small to truly count one of these as part of their number.
* The ''MegaManLegends'' series has two sets. The first game introduced the Bonne family (Teisel, Tron, and their baby brother Bon) and their Servbots, and its direct sequel added a pair of {{Sky Pirate}}s named Bola and Klaymoor.
* The {{MARDEK}} series has the World's Saviours, a second group of adventurers.
* MegaManBattleNetwork 6 had [[strike:Yuika's Lovelies]] [[strike:The Justice Club]] [[strike:The Cloudy Bombers]] the three minions who defected from WWW and can't agree on a new team name. The Darkloids ([=BlizzardMan=], [=ShadeMan=], [=CloudMan=], and [=CosmoMan=]) from Battle Network 5 also qualify, though each of them works alone most of the time (and they didn't really provide any comic relief).
* [[SincerestFormOfFlattery Directly taking inspiration]] from the ''Franchise/MegaMan'' series, ''VideoGame/ShovelKnight'' has the 8 knights of the Order of No Quarter who serve under the [[BigBad Enchantress]].
* In the first ''VideoGame/TombRaider'' game, Jaqueline Natla's squad consist of a stoic black man, a cowboy, an inbred Texan and a gun toting skater boy.
** In ''VideoGame/TombRaiderAnniversary'', this same squad is ressurected, though they aren't half as quirky, and nowhere near as amusing.
* The Kuvasz Special Operations team in ''{{Solatorobo}}'', consisting of TotallyRadical Kaluha, TheComicallySerious Gren and FemmeFatale Operá.
* Fiendish Five from ''VideoGame/SlyCooperAndTheThieviusRaccoonus'' and the Klaww Kang from ''VideoGame/Sly2BandOfThieves'', which also fit the Five-Bad Band trope.
** ''VideoGame/SlyCooperThievesInTime'' has Le Paradox's Gang.
* Pete has taken up the role of a one-man Quirky Miniboss in the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series from the third game onwards.
%%* The Seven Sages from ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaVictory'' is this. They're so much this.
