[[AC:Live-Action TV]]
* One ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode involved the bridge crew of the Enterprise working together to trap an alien who appeared on the bridge without the crew communicating with each other. Captain Picard mentions to the alien that the crew knew what he would order without him having to do so because of their good working relationship.
* The ''Series/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.
* The ''Series/{{Angel}}'' episode, "[[ADayInTheLimelight Double Or Nothing]]," [[BigDamnHeroes when the team goes to save Gunn]] JustInTime, Angel gambles his soul to keep Gunn from [[DealWithTheDevil losing his]]. He gives Cordelia a stake, saying "you know what to do," implying that he means that should he lose his soul, she must stake him. When he loses the game, she immediately stakes the demon, allowing Angel enough time to cut his head. [[OhCrap It doesn't]] [[NotQuiteDead kill him]].

[[AC:Video Games]]
* The plan in ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'' 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.

** In the German army for instance, it used to be traditional to give the commander of a column a "mission order" telling his objective, and then make no further interference, other then occasional progress reports, until the mission is fulfilled, aborted, or changed.
** There is a movement in the United States Armed Forces, originating from the [[SemperFi Marine Corps]] to introduce "Strategic Corporals". In other words, much like the German army above, the thought is that in a world of increasingly unconventional warfare, you need even your lowest ranked grunts to be able to work independently on their own and with each other in situations we calling up TheCavalry on the horn may not be possible or feasible.

* ''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.

* 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.
