* Marvel also has [[Comicbook/LukeCageHeroForHire Luke Cage]] and [[ComicBook/ImmortalIronFist Iron Fist]]. [SaltAndPepper Power Man and Iron Fist]] are perhaps one of Marvel's best examples of this trope in action: Luke is a MadeOfIron BoisterousBruiser and Danny is WeakButSkilled with some elements of LightningBruiser. Ever since they were paired up for roughly two decades worth of comics they were ALWAYS seen together, until Luke got picked as one of Brian Bendis' favorite characters and appeared more often without him. The duo was reunited when Danny joined the Comicbook/NewAvengers, of which Cage had become the leader.

* In the ComicBook/XMen, Colossus and Wolverine have the "FastballSpecial" (sometimes [[CallingYourAttacks called for]] with "Hey bub... two words"), which basically involves Colossus throwing Wolverine at an opponent. Other characters inside and outside of Marvel have occasionally borrowed the move. Basically any combo of a character with SuperStrength and one with an AbsurdlySharpBlade or six can do this.
** Any combination of Wolverine, Colossus and/or Nightcrawler.
** In the ''extremely'' rare occasions that they're seeing eye to eye, Cyclops and Wolverine can do this quite well, though they end up as RedOniBlueOni much more often.
* ComicStrip/MandrakeTheMagician and Lothar.

Bill and Barry Heterodyne, oh so much.Heterodyne. Alone they were heroic, powerful Sparks. Together they changed the world, and their family's legacy, for the better. And despite their disappearance remain almost universally loved and feared.



* The UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny video, ''WebAnimation/{{Haloid}}''.
** Even more in Haloid's spiritual sequel, ''WebAnimation/DeadFantasy'', most notably with Ayane/Kasumi and Yuna/Rikku, but really all the characters did this constantly.

* Many UsefulNotes/IceHockey forward lines embody a three-brother party. One of many examples would be the "Crash Line" of the New Jersey Devils teams of the 90s and early 2000s. The Crash Line was composed of [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Bobby Holik, Randy McKay, and Mike Peluso]]; the average weight of a Crash Line player was 215 pounds. Needless to say, the [[MeaningfulName Crash Line]] was a dominating, physical and ultimately instrumental part to the Devils' championship success. They were extremely successful and provided the "grind line" defensive template that is used to this day.
** Of course, the "grind line" terminology was derived from the Detroit Red Wings--who, after being destroyed by the Crash Line in the 1995 Stanley Cup Finals, quickly adopted the same techniques and established [[TropeCodifier the original Grind Line]] of Kris Draper, Joe Kocur, and Kirk Maltby. This line led them to two straight Cups in 1997 and 1998 (and another Cup in 2002 after Darren [=McCarty=] had succeeded Kocur on the line) and permanently encoded this technique in the essence of the game.

** Burter and Jeice are implied to be this, being the only members of the Ginyu Force who fight together rather than one-on-one. Unfortunately for them, their only on-screen fight is against Goku, who's way out of their league.

** [[RedOniBlueOni Goku and Vegeta]] play with this, but mostly in the movies and especially the Majin Buu saga.

** [[RedOniBlueOni Goku and Vegeta]] play with this, but mostly in the movies and especially the Majin Buu saga. It's a running theme that they're so [[ChallengeSeeker hyper-competitive]] that their "teamwork" usually amounts to swapping in and out tag-team style, rather than fighting someone two-on-one (no matter the stakes).
