** It's made worse by the fact that Trunks shows no interest in women, and indeed his mother has gone to the extreme of putting him in a office building shaped like a penis and filled it with hot women. He seems outright intimidated by both.
** In ''Dragon Ball Online'', the two of them start a martial arts school together.
** Can't forget Goku and Krillin, the original recipe version of what Trunks and Goten were later on. The two went from little kids to men in their fifties as best friends. In ''GT'', Krillin is the last person Goku says goodbye to on Earth, even getting his wife and sons out of the way before one last spar with Krillin.

** Don't forget Coby and Helmeppo, introduced in the start of the series, and further shown several times later and in more recent arcs. The term Cobymeppo is coined in the titles of their own {{Lower Deck Episode}}s, helping to push these two towards {{Ho Yay}}.
** Arguably Sanji and Zoro. Despite his obsession with women, he will drop everything to argue with Zoro. But they both respect each other as the two guys who anchor the crew.

* ''Anime/MaiHime'' 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.

* 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.

** The three are now called the Takamachi Family, according to the last ''Soundstages'' released; take that in any way you will.

* 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 and manga examples of HeterosexualLifePartners.



* {{Naruto}} has many examples. The Akatsuki are paired in teams, some work well together, and others are Vitriolic Best Buds.

* 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.]]

[[spoiler: Zoro even gave up his life and dream in exchange for Luffy's life when Kuma attacked.]]]] Luffy, in turn, strongly believes in Zoro and his strength, fully acknowledging his fighting prowess and often saying that there's no way Zoro would lose.
