Go To

  • Last Res0rt has its own set of mooks: The Star Org. The organization that White Noise was (un)fortunate enough to be expelled from is used as a security force on the station, but even some of the ''villains'' will pick on these folks.
    • ...well, maybe just Veled
  • Minions At Work. All of it.
  • In The Inexplicable Adventures of Bob!, the thuggish leader of the local Bigfoot tribe is named Mook.
  • The Urrt in The Challenges of Zona.
  • The Order of the Stick: "Sacrificing minions: is there any problem it can't solve?"
    • Redcloak's entire motivation for siding with Xykon is to prevent goblins and their ilk from being killed as mere cannon fodder for the heroes.
  • The sudanesse rebels of Cry Havoc are fought and annihilated seemingly just to prove how dangerous the mercenaries are. The plot only really starts once they are all killed.
  • The Frogera serve this role in Fite!, though they seem to be tougher than the average Mook.
  • In Impure Blood, the attacking forces. With Glowing Red Eyes. (Historically, the Ancients protected humanity from "black armies".
  • In Endstone, Jon's Toadmen.
  • Minion Comics focuses on a group of completely incompetent Mooks undermining their evil overlord.
  • In Sinfest, Lil' Evil goes looking for them.
  • Commedia 2X00 has Dottore's island-fortress-lab patrolled by a few different species of robot mook, but the most common seems to be the Nonny: an armless Shyguy wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, speaking entirely in the words "hey" and "nonny". Arlecchino remarks to one that they seem harmless, and it responds by grabbing him with tentacles out of the eye-holes on the mask.
  • Erfworld is set in a RPG-Mechanics Verse that revolves around warfare, where most people and creatures (except a few special ones like casters and heirs) are literally created to fill this role.
  • In El Goonish Shive, the not-really-flaming fire summons fulfill this role. They are so harmless to Greg and Grace that they use them as training dummies to teach Grace a sleeper hold.
  • The soldiers in Blitzcrafter seem to exist only for two reasons: To look menacing and betray the shiny outside of the city, and to be mowed down in mass by the main character.
  • In Homestuck, this is the in-universe role of the Underlings, especially the Imps.
