Team fanworks are ensemble works that focus on a small, close-knit group of people, which can be a professional team. Fanfiction belonging to this trope is sometimes called 'teamfic'. This term is used extensively in the Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis fandoms to describe works, commonly either gen or OT4, that involve and focus on the shows' gate teams or on larger, professionally connected groups of prople, like a science team.

The term has been adopted into several other fandoms, such as Avengers (Marvel), where it often refers to gen or OT6 works about the core Avengers team. Crew stories in fandoms such as Blake's 7 and Firefly represent a similar genre, but are not usually described as 'team' works. Angel Investigations teamfic is written in the Angel fandom.

Team fics are the standard in the Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers fandom to the point where the term itself is unknown. Most fics are case fics of some kind which have the Rangers work together. Fics that don't feature the Rangers as a team over at least a significant section are a minority.
