* ''{{Friends}}'': Joey, Ross and Chandler all provide foils to each other in different ways, being an EnsembleCast none of them are technically TheHero. Joey is TheCasanova while Chandler and Ross are HollywoodDateless. Ross is [[AllWorkVsAllPlay uptight]] while Joey and Chandler are [[AllWorkVsAllPlay relaxed]]. Chandler is BlueOni to Ross and Joey's RedOni. Interestingly Ross and Joey contrast the most but both interact with Chandler, who falls roughly in the middle, more than each other.
