* Evan Wright's book ''GenerationKill'', an account of the [=USMC=]'s First Force Recon in the 2003 invasion of Iraq, showed a rather striking scene where a group of Marines were under heavy fire in a field, and were laughing and joking. When asked why they were in such a good mood, the answer was that the Marines were surrounded by their closest friends and combat brothers; if they died in combat, they would die right alongside their best friends.
** The HBO adaptation of ''GenerationKill'' has an interesting subversion. The Marines are every bit the Band Of Brothers you'd expect them to be, but they ''also'' quickly adopt their embedded reporter, Evan Wright, as one of their own instead of turning him into a ButtMonkey. In the novel (discussed below), Wright is self-conscious of this process in a way that might pass for CasualDangerDialog, noting that he realized the Marines were starting to like him when they began poking him with their combat knives, among other forms of hazing.

* The most obvious example from the DCUniverse would be SergeantRock's unit, Easy Company.
* The various teams of ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' display this trope at times. ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'' would qualify as well, if three of its four charter members weren't already directly related by blood or marriage.

* Farron's Undead Legion of the Abyss Watchers in ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' started out like this. [[spoiler: They were founded by Knight Artorias himself to guard against the horrors of the Abyss, and they all use a replica of his sword in remembrance of the fallen Knight. When they were called upon to Link the First Flame and prolong the Age of Fire, they didn't just send one of their number down to do so; they went down into the Kiln as one and all burned together. Unfortunately, their time spent as fuel for the First Flame drove some of them mad, and by the events of the game these ice proud warriors are buys tearing each other to pieces.]]

* The eponymous heroes from ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers''. Mess with one, mess with them all. The BigBad was GenreSavvy enough to try and work that in her favor.
