A Buddy Cop Show that tightly focuses on the emotional lives of the two protagonists frequently causes troper's HoYay detectors to overheat and explode on contact, c.f. ''MiamiVice'', to the extent that HoYay is almost a fixture of the genre. If the characters spend leisure time together off the job, they're HeterosexualLifePartners. The buddies are often an OddCouple, occasionally [[SaltAndPepper one black and one white]]. In terms of personality, they tend to follow a distinct formula-one is a straight-laced stickler for protocol, the other is an unpredictable loose cannon. One ByTheBookCop, one CowboyCop. You get it. The primary thing keeping them together -- before CharacterDevelopment -- is that together, TheyFightCrime. And they do it very, very well.

A Buddy Cop Show that tightly focuses on cop shows often give a good deal of focus to the emotional lives and relationship of the two protagonists frequently causes troper's HoYay detectors to overheat and explode on contact, c.f. ''MiamiVice'', to the extent protagonists. Because of this, two tropes that HoYay this genre is almost a fixture of strongly associated with are TheNotLoveInterest (where the genre. If plot focuses on the characters spend leisure time together off initial development of their relationship, typical of movies), and HeterosexualLifePartners or PlatonicLifePartners (where the job, they're HeterosexualLifePartners.plot focuses on a pre-existing relationship, typical of TV series and movie sequels). The buddies are often an OddCouple, occasionally [[SaltAndPepper one black and one white]]. In terms of personality, they tend to follow a distinct formula-one is a straight-laced stickler for protocol, the other is an unpredictable loose cannon. One ByTheBookCop, one CowboyCop. You get it.

* ''Series/StreetJustice'' gives us a variation with the two lead characters, in that, while Adam is a (mostly) straight-laced detective-sergeant, Grady isn't a cop at all, but a streetwise martial arts expert with disdain for the rules and red tape that come with police procedure.

An increasingly common variant is partnerships between [[CopAndScientist a cop and a scientist]], a cop and a BoxedCrook, or AndroidsAndDetectives.

to:

* ''Film/KissKissBangBang'' teams up bumbling thief-turned-actor Harry Lockhart with detective Gay Perry for on the job experience for a FilmNoir role he's set up for. Naturally, claims of ThisIsReality go out the window when things parallel the detective novels he remembers from his childhood and things get [[LampshadeHanging very lampshade-y]].
* ''Film/TheNiceGuys'' has a cynical professional thug Healy (Creator/RussellCrowe) teaming up with a PI March (Creator/RyanGosling), setting aside their differences (i.e. when Healy recently snapped his arm for a job) to try and track down a missing girl. Naturally, their BrainsAndBrawn OddCouple setup means hijinks to ensue. That is when [[MoodWhiplash people aren't dying horribly.]]
