The presence of magnetic clusters has been verified in both antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic quantum critical systems. We review some of the strongest evidence for strongly doped quantum critical systems (Ce(Ru$_{0.24}$Fe$_{0.76}$)$_2$Ge$_2$) and we discuss the implications for the response of the system when cluster formation is combined with finite size effects. In particular, we discuss the change of universality class that is observed close to the order-disorder transition. We detail the conditions under which clustering effects will play a significant role also in the response of stoichiometric systems and their experimental signature.
