In action oriented stories, two characters who are friends will work with each other during combat. Often this will present the image of BackToBackBadasses. If one person is big and the other short, the big guy will use brute strength and the short guy will use [[WeakButSkilled finesse]]. Maybe the big guy will clasp hands with the short guy [[GrievousHarmWithABody and fling him around as though he was a weapon.]] Or the big guy will use the [[LivingWeapon short guy]] [[FastballSpecial as a projectile.]]

** Much less frequently, you get really ''astounding'' sequences with large chunks of the "Bat Family" (Batman, ComicBook/{{Batgirl}}, ComicBook/{{Robin}}, ComicBook/{{Nightwing}}, and a few more minor ones) fighting side by side.

** ''TurtlesForever'' takes this to the apex with the '03 Turtles eventually fighting in tandem with the '87 Turtles, and the '03 style of straight ninja fighting is contrasted with the '87 slapstick style, with both being equally efficient.
* ''TransformersAnimated'' with Prowl and Captain Fanzone when they go to Dinobot Island and have to fight off a slew of mutated creatures. It was that episode that gave some viewers a lot of respect for Fanzone, because even though he didn't like them he was still willing to work with them.

* 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.



* In Machinima/TheLeetWorld, Player and Chet.

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

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Ned Stark and Robert Baratheon were fostered together by Jon Arryn and fought this way in two wars. When Robert found himself pinned down at Stoney Sept, Ned led the RoaringRampageOfRescue. It's ''very'' SeriousBusiness when Ned declares, "I will ''not'' follow you now," in "The Wolf and the Lion".

** [[MarioKart Mario Kart: Double Dash!!]] is built on doing this in a racing game. Each kart has two racers: a driver and a support. They function as one when one person is playing, but if two players decide to go co-op on one kart, racing ability is expanded with one player driving and both players mashing the control stick to achieve miniturbos. The first player can pass items he gets back to the second player, who focuses on using them and can also punch left and right to move the kart a little in those directions to dodge things, attack other players, and steal items.
