* Ban and Ginji in ''Manga/GetBackers'' are the embodiment of this trope; even the other characters in the series remark on their "unbreakable bond". The resolution of the plot in the grand final arc of the manga actually hinges on the strength of their friendship. "The 'S' in Get Backers means neither of us is ever alone!" ** Kazuki and Juubei. The anime attempts to make the 'heterosexual' part a bit suspect in order to [[MultipleDemographicAppeal attract a wider audience]]; but in the manga, they are definitely this.

* Nanoha and Fate in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. In the third series they share a bed, dedicate several hours before sleeping to "strategy planning and personal time" and adopt a MysteriousWaif together, having her call them both "mama". Yet they both refer to the other as nothing more than a "best friend" and are never seen doing anything explicitly sexual. Most [[WordOfGay likely]] an extreme case of HideYourLesbians.

* ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'' has (at least) two such pairs, Chie/Aoi and Haruka/Yukino being the most visible. Amusingly, both pairs eventually join Natsuki and Shizuru in the ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}'' OfficialCouple pantheon.

* Judas and Luca of ''SaintBeast'' aren't really heterosexual, but they are very much the "best buddy/life partners" aspect of this trope. Goh and Gai can be argued to be this as well. In an aversion Rey and Shin, though having known each other as long as the other duos, are not as once they meet the others they largely gravitate away from each other despite maintaining their friendship.

** Zoro and Luffy have been with each other from the start. Zoro always understands what Luffy is about to do next without any words spoken. He's also the only crew member who never questions any order. [[spoiler: Zoro even gave up his life and dream in exchange for Luffy's life when Kuma attacked.]]

** In the alternate universe manga ''Manga/CodeGeassNightmareOfNunally'', Nunally and Alice could be seen as this even though 1) Alice is Nunally's bodyguard and 2) the "heterosexual" part is [[LesYay suspect.]]

* Many of the doubles pairs in ''{{The Prince Of Tennis}}''. (Some ''might'' be pushing it more towards HoYay: Koharu and Yuuji, maybe Ohtori towards Shishido and Eiji towards Ooishi.)

* Arguably, Youji and Ken in ''WeissKreuz'', to the extent that Youji warns Ken about the dangers of getting serious with a ''girl'' he's falling for - and, several episodes later, Ken returns the favor.

* Helen and Deneve in ''{{Claymore}}'', although the "heterosexual" part is [[{{Asexuality}} up for debate.]] At any rate, theirs is the longest-lived friendship amongst the protagonists, and Helen was the one who snapped Deneve out of her suicidal depression in their early days together.

The two are childhood friends, and Helen was the Yuuya frequently hangs out in Yamato's house because his own parents are rarely around, and they take care of one who snapped Deneve out of her suicidal depression in another really well. Even when they're both independent adults, their early days together.social circle are mostly still limited to themselves.

** There's the twins Sakon and Ukon, who are so close, they can actually, and seem to prefer, merging together as one. ** Kinkaku and Ginkaku, the Gold and Silver Brothers of Shippuden also count. They are known as a notorious tag-team, and apparently it's rare yo see one without the other. And as far as Ginkaku is concerned, his favorite/most said word is his brother's name. And as we see, and further have backed by Kakuzu, Kinkaku will fly into rage should something happen to Ginkaku.

* [[ThoseTwoGuys Kotetsu and Izumo]] from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. ** Shikamaru and Chouji also fit the bill - being best friends without all the convoluted rivalry alongside it. ** A late one that developed was Naruto and Killer Bee. Both being Jinchuriki, and the later helping Naruto overcome his self-hatred, and master control over the Nine Tails. The two developed a big friendship and helped each other for the majority of the War arc. The two even make a habit of fist bumping each other. ** Kakashi and Gai.
