The name comes from the world of sports, where it refers to a pair of great players who end up on the same team. The first use of the term was in UsefulNotes/{{Baseball}}, where Jose Canseco and Mark [=McGwire=] formed a dangerous duo for the late-1980s-early-1990s Oakland A's on account of their incredible (and, as it turned out, steroid-induced) power hitting. It has since spread to other players and sports.

sports. And yes, this trope happens with [[ActionGirl female fighting duos]] as well, in which case we refer to them as Smash Sisters.



* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' allows the player to make any two characters into Bash Brothers with the Pair Up / Dual system. The more often you do it, or they even stand next to each other, the more often they'll either defend each other from enemy attacks preventing all damage, or double team a enemy offensively. Do it often enough between a male and female duo and they'll [[BattleCouple eventually get married.]]

* In ''FistOfTheNorthStar'', Kenshiro and Rei, while rescuing Airi and Mamiya from the Fang Clan, have some seriously BadAss action sequences together. Raiga and Fuga, the SiblingTeam gatekeepers of the Cassandra Prison who pull a glorious HeelFaceTurn and subsequent HeroicSacrifice, also qualify.

* Nagi and his team the Ala Rubra in ''MahouSenseiNegima'' fought like this. Negi and Kotaro have been developing a style like this since entering the colosseum as a team.

* The ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' episode "Midway." A horde of Wraith decide to storm Earth, and slaughter most of Midway station staff. Who's gonna stop 'em? [[OneManArmy Two guys named Teal'c and Ronon Dex]]. The opening featured the two of them trying to beat each other to death, it was [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome simply amazing]] to watch them turn their combined badassery on the hapless Wraith.

** To illustrate, France responded to the 7/7 bombings by labelling the attackers 'savages' and instantly offering 'immediate, full and total collaboration of French services in helping you identify the authors of these crimes.' Britain, meanwhile, responded to the 2015 Bataclan gun attacks with similar promises and at a scheduled football friendly between England and France played at Wembley a matter of days later, usually [[TheRival an occasion of intense rivalry,]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming the entire stadium was lit up in red, white and blue, the motto of the French Republic was emblazoned on the side, the usual giant St George's Cross at the home end was replaced by a French tricolore, the stadium was filled with banners along the lines of]] [[YouAreNotAlone 'we stand by you']] [[DueToTheDead and after the impeccably observed minute of silence,]] the English fans all joined in the singing of [[MusicForCourage La Marseillaise - fittingly, a stirring call to arms.]] Barely two weeks later, the previously reluctant British Parliament, which had defeated a previous motion along the same lines two years before, voted to extend air strikes against ISIS to their heartlands in Syria and RAF bombers were in the air within the hour. They may bicker incessantly, but if you go after one of these countries, you'll face the immediate vengeful wrath of the other - and since both are still among the most powerful nations on the planet, this is not a fight you want to pick.
