Lex Luthor: I was just celebrating God's return. Out of the ground and back up into the sky. He and his odd little friends are forming some sort of League.
Slade Wilson: You better not be wasting my time.
Lex Luthor: No, I have too much to live for — and more important things to do. We have to level the playing field, Mr. Wilson. To put it plainly... shouldn't we have a League of our own?

Meanwhile, at the Hall of Doom...

Plot of an episode or Story Arc, wherein one or more villainous characters — usually made up of some combination of past one-shots, members of the Rogues Gallery, 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.

The Legion of Doom is normally formed in response to the heroes teaming up at much earlier point, a sort of declaration of war. A simple group of villains working together for a temporary purpose doesn't count.

Often saved for a season or series finale. Crossovers do this a lot, using one villain from each series.

Named after the nemesis organization to the Superfriends, who came together during the Challenge of the Superfriends era of the franchise and actually managed to stay together, mostly due to relentless use of a Diabolus ex Machina Reset Button to escape in the last scene, usually because their Hall of Doom can fly or burrow anywhere, and because their opponents, the Superfriends, frequently forget they have super powers.

Likely to be a Big Bad Duumvirate as well. Evil Is One Big, Happy Family is usually involved. For one-shot team ups that are usually on a smaller scale, see Villain Team-Up. Standard Evil Organization Squad is similar, but they tend to already be a group when introduced and are generally treated as a more serious threat.

Contrast Super Team, their good equivalent. Not to be confused with Doom Troops, who are extremely scary Mooks, but mooks nonetheless.

Has nothing to do with Eric Lindros, John LeClair, or Mikael Renberg or the Tag Team, The Road Warriors (well, actually it does, see below).

    Anime and Manga 
  • The first part of the Super 17 saga of Dragon Ball GT, where the gates of Hell break open, releasing an army of villains from both the original series and Z. This also happens in the movie Fusion Reborn, however, it’s downplayed there because of the recurring villains, only Frieza gets real screentime- the others are reduced to a cameo at best.
  • Hunter × Hunter has the Phantom Troupe, a band of the world's deadliest killers and thieves. Hisoka joins during the York Shin arc just for a chance to fight the leader, Chrollo Lucifer, but has no loyalty to the group outside of his own agenda and quits once he realizes Chrollo can't use nen anymore. Two of Killua's siblings, Kalluto, and eventually Illumi join later in the series.
  • Being the huge love letter to the superhero genre that it is, of course My Hero Academia would have one of these. In this case it takes the form of the League of Villains, a team of supervillains led by Tomura Shigaraki hellbent on killing the number one hero All Might. Later in the story, Shigaraki does this again on a much larger scale by combining his League of Villains with a Cult-like, militant faction dedicated to Metahuman freedom called the Meta Liberation Army. This combined group is called The Paranormal Liberation Front and almost immediatly declares war on the Pro-Hero community.
  • The ultimate plan of the Badan Empire in Kamen Rider Spirits has them revive every single Monster of the Week and evil executive from the original Kamen Rider up to Kamen Rider Super-1. Yep, every single one from all 11 of the Nebulous Evil Organisations the Kamen Riders fought previously. Once their members are all revived, the newly recreated Shocker, Gel-Shocker, Destron, G.O.D., Geddon, Garanda Empire, Black Satan, Delza Army, Neo-Shocker, Dogma and Jin Dogma set about dividing Japan amongst themselves.
  • Naruto manages to pull this off, by way of Kabuto's Edo Tensei, resurrecting many foes that either Naruto faced himself, or are enemies of the collected Shinobi villages as a whole. Worse, the line-up also included some friends and family to the heroes!
  • No Longer Allowed in Another World: The Seven Fallen Angels are a team of otherworlders who, after killing the Dark Lord, took control of his territory and use it to continue his campaign of conquest across Zauberberg, treating the world and its inhabitants as toys for them to play with.
  • The villains in Pretty Cure All Stars 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 Monster of the Week. In DX2, Bottom revives several generals from the enemy's factions. In DX3, it's the Non-Serial Movie Big Bads Black Hole has. In Miraculous Magic, Solciere creates barely sentient copies of the series' Big Bads up to the most recently defeated one, which was Dyspear.
  • In Ranma ½ during the Moxibustion Story Arc, 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. All but one ...
  • There was a Monster of the Week in the first season of Sailor Moon that brought back monsters who had been defeated previously, with predictable results.

    Comic Books 
  • In All Fall Down, the Order of Despots is this to the Pantheon.
  • Bill & Ted's Excellent Comic Book: In Hell, De Nomolos recruits the princesses' fiancée's, Benedict Arnold, Al Capone and some aliens.
  • The DCU:
    • Batman:
      • "Batman's Gangland Guardians" features an assembly of 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 only they, who have put in the time and effort, deserve to be in the running for Batman's final defeat.
      • In a Golden Age issue, the Joker and the Penguin team up and are so good with their combined resources that Batman is powerless to stop them. He wins only after they have captured him and he turns them against each other by stroking their egos to the point that they get into a competition and then an argument over who is contributing more to their partnership.
    • The Flash has the Rogues, who started out as a Villain Team-Up in The Silver Age of Comic Books, 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.
    • In the Green Lantern story arc Sinestro Corps War, Sinestro allies himself with Parallax, Cyborg-Superman, Superboy-Prime, and the Anti-Monitor to attack the GL Corps.
    • Justice League of America:
      • Silver Age comics occasionally featured the Justice League fighting the evil Crime Syndicate of America (from Earth-3, a good/evil-reversed parallel universe) featuring Ultraman, Superwoman, Owlman, Power Ring, and Johnny Quick (evil counterparts to Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Green Lantern, and the Flash, respectively). Initially, there were no superheroes on Earth-3, only supervillains, but it was eventually revealed that the heroic scientist Alexander Luthor was a bit of a thorn in the Crime Syndicate's side.
      • The 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.
      • Another one is the short-lived Secret Society of Super-Villains, in which a collection of old-school villains form a sort of anti-Justice League and fight the newly arrived Darkseid and company. In one memorable scene, Gorilla Grodd has a punchout with a giant club-wielding member of the New Gods and defeats him with the aid of a classic wrestling ploy, the heelish mock surrender. The Society even had their own series.
      • Later expanded during and after Identity Crisis (2004). 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 Flashpoint and the New 52.
      • Another one is 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; she's a monster, but she has some limits.
      • Alex Ross, a huge Superfriends fan, did a limited series titled Justice (DC Comics), which was his Darker and Edgier (relatively speaking) version of the series. This version of the Legion of Doom had the same roster as their original Superfriends incarnation (Lex Luthor, Giganta, Toyman, Sinestro, Bizarro, Brainiac, Cheetah, Gorilla Grodd, Solomon Grundy, Captain Cold, Black Manta, The Riddler and Scarecrow), but with the addition of Black Adam, Metallo, Clayface, Parasite and Poison Ivy being members and Toyman being the Winslow Schott version rather than the Jack Nimball version (though he does use puppet-like automatons that resemble the jester-like costume Jack Nimball wore). The miniseries also ends up deconstructing the concept by revealing that the architects of the Legion had to resort to using mind control to get all the villains to work together. Otherwise, they're just too selfish and/or insane to stay focused on a single unified goal and would inevitably turn on one another or pursue their own personal vendettas.
      • 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 Trinity War and Forever Evil (2013).
      • Another iteration actually pitted a team led by Lex Luthor against a Society/Crime Syndicate team led by Deathstroke, where Batman (who had already partnered with 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, Black Adam, 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.
      • Justice League (2018) saw the Trope Namer making its debut in mainstream comic continuity for the first time.
    • One of the earliest examples has to be the Injustice Society of the World who first fought the Justice Society of America 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, though the original team consisted of the Wizard (founder), Brainwave, Vandal Savage, the Thinker, the Gambler and time-traveler Per Degaton. The same incarnation reformed about a year later, adding Sportsmaster, Harlequin, Icicle, Tigress and Fiddler.
    • The Evil Counterpart to the Legion of Super-Heroes, the Legion of Super-Villains, especially the Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds incarnation led by Superboy-Prime, wherein the roster consists of almost all of the villains the Legion ever faced.
    • The Ur-Example may be from Leading Comics #1 (winter 1941), in which the Seven Soldiers of Victory are formed. The master criminal known as 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.
    • Shazam!: Another early example is the Monster Society of Evil, who fought 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.
    • Superman:
      • The Superman Revenge Squad, mostly made up of relatively minor 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.
      • The Supergirl (Rebirth) storyline "The Girl of No Tomorrow" gives us a new incarnation of the Fatal Five, five villains assembled by Emerald Empress to kill Supergirl.
      • In "Superman: Revenge" arc, Cyborg Superman sets up a Superman Revenge Squad consisting of himself, Mongul, Metallo, Zod, Eradicator and Blanque. They nearly succeed in killed Superman off, but the Man of Steel is saved by the Superman Family.
      • In Last Son, Lex Luthor's Superman Revenge Squad consists of himself, Metallo, Parasite, and Bizarro.
      • In Who Took the Super out of Superman?, Lex Luthor, Brainiac, Amalak, Mr. Mxyzptlk, Parasite, Prankster, Toyman, Terra-Man and Kryptonite Man come together to destroy Superman.
      • In The Phantom Zone, General Zod assembles all criminals imprisoned in the Phantom Zone to carry out his scheme against Superman and Earth.
    • Wonder Woman:
      • Wonder Woman (1942): Marston's final issue has Cheetah, Giganta, Blue Snowman, Dr. Poison, Queen Clea, Hypnota, Eviless and Zara teaming up to form Villainy Inc. in order to escape Reformation Island and kill Wonder Woman.
      • Subverted in one of the earliest examples, in a Golden Age issue. Almost all of her existing villains apparently team up to try and kill her, but it turns out that they're a group of actors recruited by the real villain, a deranged stage actor who thinks Wonder Woman stole his fame.
      • Wonder Woman (Rebirth): Greg Rucka's run has Veronica Cale and the rebooted versions of Doctor Cyber and Doctor Poison, with unwilling assistance from Cheetah and temporary assistance from Circe, to destroy Wonder Woman / gain access to Themyscira.
      • "Rebirth" also has Paula Von Gunther as "Warmaster" recruit Devastation, Genocide, Armaggedon II and Donna Troy as her Four Horsewomen for the purpose of invading Themyscira and exterminating the amazons in revenge for amazons slaughtering a company of valkyries in the past. Donna Troy is not amused to learn this, refusing to grant them entrance to the island, but Genocide forces her way in.
    • Lex and the Joker teamed up during The Silver Age of Comic Books in World's Finest to take on Batman and Superman by robbing Fort Knox with nigh-invulnerable robots.
  • Parodied in the Doctor Who Magazine 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.
  • Femforce has Fearforce, a supervillain team comprised of several of Femforce's greatest foes: Darkfire, Gorgana, Krone, Proxima, and Valkyra.
  • First Strike has several villains of the Hasbro Comic Universe coming together, with the only major absentees being any Cybertronians, since they're the villains' intended targets, and any villains from ROM, because the Big Bad has a very personal grudge against them. Naturally, they don't get along very well, and some of them are even expecting a sudden but inevitable betrayal.
  • Image Comics' Guarding the Globe series introduces us to the Order, a select group of minor recurring 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 the new War Woman.
  • The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen has two, which are formed by France and Germany in the early 20th century to combat Britain's original League. The French have "Les Hommes Mysterieux" ("The Mysterious Men"), who include Arsène Lupin, Jean Robur, Fantômas, the Nyctalope and Monsieur Zenith. The Germans have "Die Zwielichthelden" ("The Twilight Heroes"), who include Dr. Caligari and his assassin Cesare, Dr. Rotwang and his robotic servant Maria, and Doctor Mabuse. Both groups have a hand in starting the League universe's version of World War I.
  • The ninth issue of the Madballs comic book published by Marvel Comics 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 International Network of Creeps).
  • The Marvel Universe has several: the Masters of Evil, the Sinister Six, The Hood's Gang, 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 Thunderbolts. (Hercules, amongst others, was not happy to find out about this...)
    • The Lethal Legion in one incarnation involved a Historical Domain Crossover.
    • 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.
    • Kid Colt: Kid Colt was one of the Marvel western heroes to have enough recurring enemies to make this trope possible. In #127, Colt's Arch-Enemy Iron Mask (a blacksmith in bulletproof armour) recruited Bennington Brown (a hypnotist), Dr. Danger (a ventriloquist and master of magnets) and the Fat Man (a Fat Bastard skilled in the use of the boomerang) to form a Circus of Fear to stage a crime wave in Phoenix, where they naturally ran into Colt.
    • The Council of Kangs is made entirely of Conqueror from the Future Kang the Conqueror and his various iterations created by time travel.
    • Attempted by Loki in the Acts of Vengeance crossover. It didn't work out well, most notably because a) 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 Magneto (a Jewish Holocaust survivor who takes "never again" very seriously) and the Red Skull (an outspoken Nazi) in the same room was a disaster waiting to happen, really (at least from the Skull's perspective - most everyone else was rather impressed).
    • 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.
    • As part of his plans during Dark Reign, Norman Osborn set up a "Cabal" consisting of himself, Emma Frost, Namor, Doctor Doom, the Hood, and Loki. It... uh... works out about as well as for Osborn as everything else does in the storyline.
    • There's also the Dark Avengers, with villains impersonating heroes.
    • Norman tries again when he busts out of jail following Fear Itself, 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.
    • The latest instance is the Multiversal Masters of Evil, a collection of Multiversal Conquerors made up of the most dangerous villains from across time and space: a Doctor Doom who became the Sorcerer Supreme, a young and psychotic Thanos, a Dark Phoenix who had turned Wolverine into her pet berserker, a Killmonger who had conquered the Ten Realms, a Red Skull that bonded with the Venom symbiote, and a Norman Osborn that became the new Spirit of Vengeance.
    • X-Men: Media adaptations have an annoying habit of grouping most X-Villains as members of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants with Magneto as their leader. Many of these villains have never been involved with the Brotherhood at all in the comics, like Sabretooth, Emma Frost, and the Juggernaut (who's not even a mutant). Others were part of a different iteration of the team and have never worked under Magneto, like Mystique and Pyro. Bonus points if Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are present and willingly serving Mags, 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 The Avengers 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 X-Men team: Mister Sinister's Marauders, who are a lot less picky about who to team up with, though he probably won't be in any hurry to rehire Mystique anytime soon.
    • A short-lived (1975-1980) series titled Super-Villain Team-Up was really a minor example, as it mostly came down to Doctor Doom and the Sub-Mariner, though the last couple of issues were about the Red Skull and the Hate-Monger. The title was given a reboot of sorts in 2007 as a miniseries, Super-Villain Team-Up: M.O.D.O.K.'s 11, in which M.O.D.O.K. 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, it's all just a ridiculously circuitous plot to get revenge on his ex-girlfriend.
    • Spoofed in Mutant Beach Party, in which the Muties are braced for an incoming attack by an "ominous consortium of their most fierce and most deadly foes". They just don't know who this is, because they've got a lot of enemies (not including themselves). Finally, the story ends with the ominous consortium revealing themselves to be... all the other Marvel heroes, pissed off at the X-Men's breakaway success and determined to take the spotlight back by force.
    • The Incredible Hulk: Fall of the Hulks gives 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.
    • Ghost Rider: In Ghost Riders: 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 (Legacy Character 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 steam shovel), and Scarecrow (No, not that one, but rather a maniac with a pitchfork who commands crows).
  • Top 10: 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.
  • The whole premise of the miniseries 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 Real Life political coups by politically expedient alliances.)

  • The Amazing Spider-Man Series was building up to Spider-Man fighting the Sinister Six before Sony loaned him to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The credits of ''The Amazing Spider-Man 2 show the full line-up, being Rhino, Vulture, Doc Ock, Mysterio, and Kraven the Hunter, with Harry Osborn/Green Goblin serving as the leader.
  • Batman Film Series:
    • Subverted in Batman Returns, as Penguin's two allies have no idea that 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.
    • The Joel Schumacher-directed movies also have this as all the villains within the movies unite to kill Batman. Riddler joins and eventually leads Two-Face's gang in Batman Forever and Mr. Freeze allies with Poison Ivy and Bane in Batman & Robin.
  • Batman: The Movie, featuring the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler, and Catwoman ("United Underworld") in a cheesy penguin-shaped submarine. They even went through the trouble of making a logo (an octopus strangling a globe).
  • In Justice League (2017), The Stinger involves Lex Luthor escaping prison with plans to start a team in response to the creation of the Justice League, with Deathstroke being his first recruit. This is absent from Zack Snyder's Justice League, in which Luthor instead hires Deathstroke to kill Batman, revealing Batman's Secret Identity (Bruce Wayne) to him.
  • In Kick-Ass 2, The Motherfucker assembles a bunch of killers and dresses them up as supervillains to counter the rise of superheroes.
  • Looney Tunes: Back in Action had various Looney Tunes antagonists (Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Marvin the Martian, etc.) working for the Big Bad.
  • In Night at the Museum 2, Kahmunra recruits Napoléon Bonaparte, Ivan The Terrible, and Al Capone as his evil team. Darth Vader and Oscar the Grouch also try to join it, but since Kahmunra has no idea who they are, they don't make the cut.
  • Scooby-Doo: Monsters Unleashed, reviving many of the monsters that Mystery Inc. has unmasked in the past. However, this time, all of them are real.
  • Spider-Man: No Way Home: Five villains from the five Spider-Man films prior to his MCU introduction are inadvertently brought to his world thanks to a botched spell. While all of them have been members of the Sinister Six in the comics, they are one villain short to be a proper depiction of them.note

  • The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode "One of Us" involves 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, Frances Noche, Angar the Screamer, Wendell Levi, and Karla Faye Gideon. The plan actually works pretty well and they nearly defeat the agents, but it falls apart when 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.
  • 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 inversion — 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.
  • Arrow:
  • In the first season of 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 leading them, they quickly betray him for a more fitting leader.
  • Doctor Who has toyed with doing this on several occasions, but it never quite works out.
    • "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 (Yellow Peril and Diabolical Mastermind Mavic Chen), and the heroes exploit the infighting. Just one problem — the Doctor's never met any of these bad guys before.
    • In "The Five Doctors", many of the Doctor's worst foes are brought together to finish him off — but they are merely pawns of The Man Behind the Curtain, and apart from the Master and the Cybermen don't even interact.
    • "Doomsday" brings 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 "The Pandorica Opens", in which a couple dozen races show up, apparently to squabble over whatever is imprisoned in the eponymous device, 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.
  • In the Grand Finale of The Flash (2014), the newest Negative Speed Force avatar Cobalt Blue/Eddie Thawn brings the shows main four evil speedsters (The Reverse Flash, Zoom, Savatar and Godspeed) Back from the Dead for an epic Final Battle against Team Flash. They nickname the group "The Legion of Zoom".
  • Sue's self-described Leg— uh, League of Doom in Glee, if you replace "supervillain" with "returning character with a grudge against the local show choir". She even gives them code-names, dubbing herself General Zod.
  • While Gotham has plenty of smaller 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".
  • Kamen Rider:
    • The final episodes of Kamen Rider Den-O feature the Big Bad amassing an enormous army of the series' 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 Big Bad.
    • Kamen Rider Decade introduces a particularly large version in the form of Great Shocker, which is an alliance of every single evil organization from Kamen Rider's 30-plus-year history united under a single banner and dedicated to conquering the multiverse and destroying all the Kamen Riders. 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 monsters that Tsukasa and company dealt with while travelling through the AR worlds.
    • In the Final Chapter movie, following Great Shocker's downfall in All Riders vs. Great Shocker, Doctor Shinigami and Narutaki (who reveals himself as Colonel Zol) gather The Remnant 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 Back from the Dead because Decade destroyed them (it's a complicated story).
    • In Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen, Great Shocker has been rebuilt with its leader back into the seat and Doctor G as his 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 Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger section below for their side of the story.
    • The 40th anniversary movie Let's Go Kamen Rider has Shocker persisting into the 21st century thanks to Ankh sneaking into Den-O's time-traveling train for want of medals; its membership in 2011 includes villains from all over the franchise like General Jark and Ryubee Sonozaki/Terror Dopant.
    • The On the Next preview for episode 25 of Kamen Rider Fourze 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. However, it turns out that this was just the work of a Zodiarts whose power is to create copies of previous Zodiarts.
    • In the Movie War crossover with Kamen Rider OOO, Foundation X uses the research its agents gathered to build an army consisting of various monsters as well as mooks from the three series involved (Fourze, OOO and W), alongside monsters of the Big Bad'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 Movie War between Fourze and Kamen Rider Wizard there is Monster Army, which consists of revived Dopants, Yummy, Zodiarts, and Phantoms, led by evil alternate versions of the main trio from Akumaizer 3.
    • The final episodes of Wizard also sees the heroes dealing with an army of monsters from the previous Heisei series.
    • Kamen Rider Zi-O: The finale of the series sees a massive army of past foes of the Kamen Riders emerging out of all the timelines and alternate worlds being merged together. Culminating in a showdown against five past Rider Big Bads.
    • Kamen Rider Outsiders is what you get when you cross this trope with Villain Protagonist: Foundation X puts together a team of multiple evil Riders from throughout the franchise's history in order to fight a Knight Templar backed by a number of normally heroic Riders.
  • Legends of the Superheroes had its Legion of Doom consist of Solomon Grundy, Sinestro, Giganta, Weather Wizard, Dr. Sivana, the Riddler and Mordru as the leader.
  • Legends of Tomorrow:
    • The second season introduces the Arrowverse version of the Legion, made up of various villains from Arrow and The Flash (2014): Eobard Thawne/the Reverse-Flash, Damien Darhk note , Malcolm Merlyn/the Dark Archer, a 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 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 Darhk (again), his daughter Nora, Gorilla Grodd and Kuasa. By the Season Finale, however, most have been removed from play for one reason of another, so Mallus gathers several one-shot historical villains from over the course of the season — Blackbeard, Julius Caesar, and Freydis — and their respective followers to serve as his new army.
  • Metal Heroes:
  • Odd Squad: The first half of Season 3 has The Shadow try and drown the Mobile Unit agents and their van in the Lake of Goo to get rid of them. When that fails, she defaults to her ultimate Evil Plan of gathering up every known villain in Odd Squad's existence, having them band together as a "Villain Network", and using Odd Squad's modus operandi of teamwork against them in order to beat them, with their course of action being to funnel their powers into a cube and send them through the tubes at Tube Central Station in Australia and destroy all precincts from the inside out. They nearly succeed before the Mobile Unit stops them and Opal eventually convinces The Shadow, revealed to be her younger sister, to pull a Heel–Face Turn. The cube ends up breaking in a Nice Job Breaking It, Rivals! moment between Confetti Betty and Monsieur Papier-Mache and the powers end up forming a destructive purple tornado, which the Mobile Unit and The Shadow work together to stop. Once all is said and done, The Shadow becomes The Atoner and decides to stay with Opal, cleaning up the destruction she caused in Australia and in other countries and breaking up the Villain Network.
  • Power Rangers has done this at least twice:
    • In Space had 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.
    • Operation Overdrive had a short-lived case in the 15th anniversary "Once A Ranger" 2-parter, with the never-seen-before son of Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd uniting the season's Big Bad Ensemble (who are usually at each other's throats in any episode involving more than one organization.)
  • 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, they never appear nor are mentioned again.
  • The Society: Campbell's coup serves as this. A number of different people who don't like Allie team up to overthrow her.
  • Super Sentai:
    • Not wanting to be left out, there is the 30th anniversary celebration GoGo Sentai Boukenger vs. Super Sentai, where High priest Gajah makes an alliance with the movie's Big Bad, Chronos, who in turn revives Tsue Tsue, Meemy and, in the very last minute, Furabijo. 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 - Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger is already a Decade-style-celebration, but its villains are the completely original Zangyack Empire. However, the first movie involves said empire making an alliance with the Black Cross King, a revived rubber suit form of the Black Cross Fuhrer from Himitsu Sentai Gorenger, who in turn revives Brajira, Dagon from Mahou Sentai Magiranger and Yogoshimacritein from Engine Sentai Go-onger. Even though those three are destroyed separately by the rangers, in the final battle, the Black Cross King revives them, while also summoning Dagon's fellow Hades Gods Ifrit and Cyclops; Yogoshimacritein's minions Chirakasonne and Kireizky; and lastly Brajira multiplying himself into his five different forms.
    • Among the lackeys of the villain of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger the Movie: The Flying Ghost Ship is a revived Agent Abrella, who himself leads an army of nearly every Mook that has existed in Sentai history.
    • In Kamen Rider X Super Sentai Superhero Taisen, Zangyack has been expanded into "Great Zangyack" by the hands of their new emperor, who appears to be a Face Heel Turned 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 Doukoku and Bio Hunter Silva. Eventually, this organization teams up with the above-mentioned Dai-Shocker to form the Shocker-Zangyack Alliance.
  • The final episode of Team Knight Rider, aptly titled "Legion of Doom", featured all the villains from the series teaming up under the command of the series' Big Bad.
  • The Twilight Zone (1985): In "Crazy as a Soup Sandwich", Volkerps is a member of the Fourth Canonic Order of Demons.
  • Ultra Series:

    Music 
  • 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.

     Mythology and Religion 
  • Irish Mythology: Midach was the son of a viking raider slain by Fionn Mac Cumhaill. Despite Fionn taking him in and raising him like his own son, Midach forever holds resentment for the Fianna's leader. When Midach came of age, he plotted a trap for Fionn in order to kill him and his warriors before moving onto fulfill his father's dreams of conquest. Part of this involved aligning himself with three sorcerer kings from a magical island called Torrent, the remnants of his father's army, and Sinsar, the second King of the World.

    Professional Wrestling 
  • Legendary Professional Wrestling stable The Four Horsemen started out as a Legion of Doom-esque gathering of heels. Rated RKO was the teaming of two of 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, The Road Warriors, when the Horsemen showed up. And we can't let the Pro Wrestling entry go by without a mention of the 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 Jake the Snake, The Spoiler, Matt Borne (AKA the first Doink the Clown), King Kong Bundy, Arn Anderson, and for perhaps the only time both of the Sheiks, Iron and Original, led by manager 'Precious' Paul Ellering. The two remaining members were made into a tag team and were supposed to be called The Road Warriors hence why they are introduced as "Road Warrior Hawk" and "Road Warrior Animal". The two names were used interchangeably since then.
  • In 1995 WCW, Kevin Sullivan and his "Father" The Master (King Curtis Iaukea) put together one of the most imposing heel stables of all time called the Dungeon of Doom. The group featured the great Monster Heels Kamala, The Shark (John "Earthquake" Tenta) and Haku (now known as Meng) who is generally considered one of if not the most legitimate tough guys in wrestling also joined the group, with the centerpiece being The Giant. At Halloween Havoc 95 the group really began to hit its stride with the inclusion of former world champion Lex Luger and legendary manager Jimmy Hart. The stable would expand over the next several months to include an odd mix of characters, including The Barbarian, The Yeti, The One Man Gang, Giant Haystacks (billed as the Loch Ness Monster) Big Bubba (Ray "The Big Bossman" Traylor), Hugh Morrus, Jacqueline and Konnan. The stable peaked in early 1996 and were ultimately Demoted to Extra due to the rise of the NWO and dissolved after Chris Benoit 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 Batman & Robin) and Z-Gangsta (Tom Lister, Jr., who played Zeus in Hulk Hogan's 1989 film No Holds Barred). They fought Hogan and Randy Savage in the "Doomsday Cage Match", a triple-decker cage. However, at the apex of his Invincible Hero status, Hogan was still too much for the eight members of the Alliance and he and Savage soundly beat them.
  • In 1998, Vince McMahon created his own legion of doom, The Corporation, to contend with the likes of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Mick Foley, and D-Generation X. They became even more doomy when Shane McMahon took over the Corporation and merged it with the Ministry of Darkness to form the Corporate Ministry, while still answering to the "Higher Power" (who 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 AAA during the 1990s to get rid of the young, popular "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.
  • MsChif briefly had one in the form of Amazing Kong (whom she feuded with in the NWA), Wesna Busic (whom she fell to in the ChickFight VIII finals) and Sara Del Rey (who she beat for the SHIMMER singles title). Wesna backed off after being beaten while Kong and MsChif eventually came to a mutual understanding (MsChif later tried to fight Kong's own legion of doom). Also, Ashley Lane, Nevaeh and Cheerleader Melissa were there to back MsChif up (back up meaning sharing the beating and attracting more unwanted attention from Annie Social, who paired Busic with Melanie Cruz)
  • When Los Perros Del Mal invaded 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 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 Power Stable to 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 referees 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 Ivelisse Vélez to subvert SHINE's rulings and freely target wrestlers on its roster, starting with Amazing Kong, who broke Rain's wrist after Jazz lobbied to end the suspensions of Rain and Mercedes Martinez, to get them in a tag team match (Kong also embarrassed Made In Sin at an NWA FUW show).
  • Daniel Bryan had his own personal legion of doom in the form of The Authority comprised of Triple H, Randy Orton, Stephanie McMahon, The Shield (Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose), The Big Show and former tag team partner 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 written off TV via choke slam from Kane.
  • In 2014, Dixie Land (Dixie Carter, Magnus, Ethan Carter III, Rockstar Spud), The Bromans (Robbie E, Zema Ion, Jessie Godderz), Bad Influence (Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian), Bobby Roode and crooked referee Brian Stiffler all teamed up to rid TNA of AJ Styles. In a single match. They won. Then they repeated the same thing again with Sting, who had tried to help AJ.
  • In 2014, "El Magnate" Juan Manuel Ortega joined with Mighty Ursus, Jinder Mahal, Abdullah the Butcher and Orlando Toledo to form an alliance to rid pro wrestling of the Colon family, starting in WWC with Carlito. 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).

    Roleplay 
  • In The Gamer's Alliance, 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.
  • Super Smash Brothers Life Itself has this in the form of The Order of Despair, The Pollies and The New Pigmask Army.

    Tabletop Games 
  • Claim the Sky: Dread, an organization of seven supervillains, is the primary opponent of The Society of Seven.
  • There's a sort of example done apparently just for the sake of simplicity in the games HeroQuest and Space Crusade, roughly based on Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000, 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.
  • Sentinels of the Multiverse: This is the point behind Baron Blade setting up the Vengeful Five, a counterpart to the games heroic Freedom Five, with each member intended to have some grudge against one of the heroes. An earlier example would probably be The Ennead, a group of rogue archaeologists possessed by the spirits of several Egyptian gods who battle against The Mighty Ra.
  • Villains & Vigilantes 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.

    Theatre 
  • Doctor Who:
    • The stage play Doctor Who: 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 since, they amount more to henchmen and one-off baddies.

    Theme Parks 

    Video Games 

    Visual Novels 

    Webcomics 
  • 8-Bit Theater:
    • 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 Villains 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 KT event.
  • The Doctor Who fancomic The 10 Doctors, apparently influenced by the lack of this trope in the series (see above), goes nuts with it. The Celestial Toymaker is working for Omega. The Renegade Daleks are taking commands from the Valeyard. The Rani is assisting Davros and the Imperial Daleks, who are themselves controlling the Cybermen. The Master is using the War Chief and the 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.
  • Akuma's Comics: The Ministry is a collection of both canon and fan-created villains led by the Undertaker, who has promised to help get them what they want for his own ends. The group get along relatively well, which is helped by the fact the Undertaker is a man of his word.
  • The League of Recurring Antagonists in Casey and Andy.
  • The Crossoverlord assembled one of these by gathering enemies of each story's main characters — at least one for each hero, two in the case of Dasien, but none for The Green Avenger (maybe because her only enemy at the point was a walking alarm clock, or because she was brainwashed).
  • The Dark Legion in Deviant Universe, which has had two incarnations of the course of the story.
  • Hero Killer: The Nameless, a guild of villains whose ancestors survived the Great War, and seek the eradication of the Hero Clan.
  • In The Order of the Stick, 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.
  • Scary Go Round 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. It Makes Sense in Context, at least to them.
  • The Axis of...Something in 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 pulled that drama tag). The Axis later 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 Similar Squad, rebuit as a cyborg; Mike because he was bored; and Leslie's ex-husband, who thought it was a bible study group.)

    Web Original 
  • One of the non-existent season two episodes of Challenge of the GoBots that was described by Cy-Kill in his Character Blog Renegade Rhetoric was "The Guardian Smashers", which involved Trident from the episode "Trident's Triple Threat" forming a villain team with other human enemies of the Guardians (Professor Frost from "Cold Spell", Mr. Murchison from "Crime Wave", Dr. Cunningham from "In Search of Ancient GoBonauts", Major Benedict from "The Seer" and Dr. Helstrom from "Renegade Carnival").
  • SMG4 has the Dark Force, a group created by SMG3 out of several of the show’s previous villains in "SMG3’s Plan To Destroy SMG4 Because He Felt Like It". It’d be succeeded in 2020’s The YouTube Arc, containing evil counterparts to the main cast excluding Mario, once again being lead by SMG3.
  • Team Kimba of the Whateley Universe 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.

    Web Videos 
  • Decker: Various monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolfman and the Mummy team up to take over the world during "Decker vs. Dracula".
  • The Evil League of Evil in Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, led by Bad Horse and his terrible death whinny.
  • Random Encounters: "Arkham Rock Opera" has Batman cornered by one made up of his Rogues Gallery, led by Black Mask and involving Joker, Harley Quinn, Riddler, Poison Ivy, Scarecrow, Penguin, Catwoman, Ra's al Ghul, Hugo Strange, and Bane. They almost succeed in killing him, but Catwoman ultimately turns on them and helps Batman escape.
  • Parodied in the Solid jj video "Batman's Greatest Foes", in which Polka-Dot Man assembles a group of C-list and D-list Batman villains (plus D-list Marvel villain Big Wheel) to create "Gotham's Legion of Evil". Batman refuses to take them seriously and they end up surrendering without a fight.
  • Supermarioglitchy4's Super Mario 64 Bloopers has given us Snitch Productions, led by SMG4's Evil Twin SMG3, with members including Rob, JubJub Boopkins, and even Belle Fontiere. However, they're actually legitimately hired actors for a harmless (if plagiarized) play produced by Snitch Productions, and only become villains because SMG4's rivalry with SMG3. Mario of all people, however, serves as the Token Good Teammate on the team and manages to smooth over tensions.
