* The Japanese soldiers of Captain Inouye's unit in ''Film/TheBurmeseHarp'', stuck in a POW camp, give away what few possessions they have in an effort to get information on their missing man, Private Mitsushima. When he finally shows up at their camp (he has avoided capture by dressing as a monk), they sing to him and beg him to come home with them.

* Ellie Linton and her friends in TheTomorrowSeries are a close Band Of Brothers. [[spoiler: Later on, they even bond with the feral children they've taken in, to the point that Ellie nearly doesn't want to let them be sent to New Zealand---and one of the ferals, Gavin, does stay with them.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In Peter Jackson's Middle-Earth Film-verse, the Fellowship of the Ring in ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' and the Company of Thorin Oakenshield in ''Film/TheHobbit''. Especially true for the actors who've played characters in said companies. The actors who were part of the former band even got matching tattoos - an Elvish symbol for number 9, which refers to the Nine Walkers.

* ''Semper Fidelis'' Motto of the U.S. Marine Corps and a few other Organizations around the world. Meaning Always Faithful. Not only that, but the military unit is often analogized as a family, with the commanding officer filling the role of a traditional father or head of the household, and the senior NCO as the mother. The rest of the unit, of course, is like their numerous children, brothers and sisters who sometimes bicker amongst each other, but trust in one another like a family.

* Throw dart in a Military base in Afghanistan, you'll find one. Whether it be the Mercian Regiment joking about the tracks on their [=APCs=] in Camp Bastion, or the Marines trekking it through sandy streets in Sangin, or even a Danish company trading jokes about their duties, the ISAF forces are ''made'' of these.

* In [[BatenKaitos Baten Kaitos: Origins]], this features heavily in a literal and figurative sense. Every time one of the monsters is defeated, Sagi gets a faint-inducing headache, and wakes up in a different world. [[spoiler: in this world, he is a sibling of the five people who group together and become Malpercio, the BigBad of the sequel.]]

* Creator/OrsonScottCard calls this a "jeesh" (though only in the ''Ender's Shadow'' series), but still essentially the same thing in ''Literature/EndersGame''. The fact that they're a group of military super-geniuses makes them particularly dangerous. Also referred to as a "jeesh" in ''Literature/OrsonScottCardsEmpire''.

* The core of the eponymous mercenary band in Glen Cook's ''TheBlackCompany'' is a Band Of Brothers, and it's the only way the survive all of the crazy shit that happens to them.
* ''The Fellowship of the Ring'' from the ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'' ends up like this, especially the four hobbits and the three hunters. In fact, many novels that are based on small long-term groups with fixed rosters that do ''[[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons D&D]]''-style adventuring result in a Band Of Brothers of sorts.
