* ''TheOtherGuys'' do this in the office scene after all the guns are drawn, detective Gamble throws a stack of paper into the air and Hoitz engages the attackers despite how this contradicts the initial plan to be discreet.

* ''GurrenLagann'' This seems to be how the two cockpits for the titlular mecha function. A screen was placed inside so that they could see and communicate, but most fights are so hectic it's unlikely they can (or even wanted to) form a plan. And their mecha is the one that ends up with the highest kill count at the end of every episode...
* ''GunsmithCats'': Minnie May’s escape from Radinov’s car. The titular pair practiced syncing up head nods to music at the beginning of the episode. Other uses for synchronized head moving is an infallible escape timer which was communicated with flashing high beams in time to the music which cued May to use the hidden explosives that Radinov must have missed in the frisking to frame the rear window without Radinov noticing and at the climax of the song blow up the window and jump out and onto Rally’s waiting car hood through gunfire “while running a red light and speeding!”

* ''[[RushHour Rush Hour 3]]'' does this during the hospital shootout when Lee gives Carter an empty gun without realizing it and decides the best way to load Carter’s gun would be to grab the magazine, slide toward Carter on a mail cart and push the magazine into Carter’s gun so he can use it. Also, immediately afterword, when interrogating the French Asian, Carter asks Lee for his gun and attempts to execute the man only to find there are, again, no bullets in it. This luckily leads to their captive taking them seriously when they threaten to kill him a second time so he reveals a key piece of information.

* ''MrAndMrsSmith'' demonstrate this for the entire final act of the movie. One particularly outrageous example is when Mr. Smith fires a shotgun that is still slung across Mrs. Smith’s back.
* ''TheBoondockSaints'' and the sequel All Saints Day displays on multiple occasions that the [=MacManus=] brothers specifically rely on this in combat. Specifically their responses when attacked by Il Duce, or when they fell through the air duct are generally played out symmetrically.

* The plan in ''Call of Duty: [[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps Black Ops]]'' at the beginning of the level “rat tunnels” certainly qualifies. When the player and their companion is being forced to play Russian roulette and it is their turn the ally gives a verbal equivalent of the head nod, “This time, this time.” and the player follows it up with saying “6 and 8 o’clock.” What follows after this is a complex process of gun stealing, human shields and action diving that results in the majority of the other people in the room getting killed.
* Averted in ''MetalGearSolid4'', where the Rat Patrol's nanomachines let each member of the squad see and hear what each ''other'' member is seeing and hearing. This allows them to pull off maneuvers with ridiculous precision and coordination. ''Then'' it's played straight when Meryl teams up with [[spoiler:Johnny Sasaki]] who doesn't ''have'' nanomachines.

* The ''StargateAtlantis'' episode "Midway", Ronon meets '''THE''' original ProudWarriorRaceGuy, Teal'c. The two spend the first third of episode giving each other the hairy eyeball and smacking each other around. When they reach the titular space station, they run afoul of a Wraith invasion force working it's way to Earth. Without any possible warning or planning, the two of them start kicking shit out of the Wraith, climaxing with them halting their invasion of the SGC.

* ''BlackLagoon'': The quote above comes from when Ginji and Revy assault a bowling alley filled with armed thugs. The relationship between Ginji and Revy could be described as strained at best and further hampered by a complete Language Barrier that prevents any planning. Despite this they cover each other on multiple instances in the following fight instinctively. This cooperation is possible because, as Revy puts it, both she and Ginji are just that Badass. Revy also does this with Mr. Chang which makes more sense as he trained her.
