The Mob, also known as the Mafia or Cosa Nostra was a criminal organization active during the 19th and 20th centuries on Earth. The mob was very active in early 20th century Chicago, to the point that conventional government in the city nearly collapsed. (TOS episode: "A Piece of the Action")

Stories about the Mob were widespread in American popular culture in the 20th century, spawning a number of movies on the subject. (SCE eBook: Fables of the Prime Directive) In 1992, the book Chicago Mobs of the Twenties detailed the history of the mob during this period.

In 2168, a copy of that book was left on Sigma Iotia II by the crew of the USS Horizon. The Iotians saw the mob as a perfect society, and changed their society to one based on that of the mob. When the crew of the USS Enterprise visited the planet in 2268, they helped guide the Iotians into a more ethical system. (TOS episode: "A Piece of the Action")

The holo-novelist Felix also designed a jack in the box into the Vic Fontaine program in which the Las Vegas mob took over the operation of Vic's club. The crew of Deep Space Nine helped Vic defeat the mobsters using 20th century means. (DS9 episode: "Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang")

From GuildWiki

Mobile object, or "MOB", in Guild Wars typically refers to a monster, or a non-player hostile creature.

Generally, Mob is the slang term given to any non-player character (NPC) or combatant in a video game. The term has been in use since the early days of online gaming, in the MUD community, then used in the more general sense that any NPC was a mob.

Note that many players will use the word "mob" to refer to a group of enemies gathered at a certain point (following the basic meaning of the English word "mob"). The two meanings can often be interchanged seamlessly in a sentence with one person using "mob" to indicate one meaning but another person understanding the sentence clearly while thinking of the other meaning. An example would be: Go attack that mob over there.
