Many video game special attacks occur when two or more characters use certain attacks at the same time or in rapid succession. These are often extremely powerful, and [[RuleOfCool rather impressive to watch]], but may or [[AwesomeButImpractical may not be more effective]] than [[BoringButPractical just using the component attacks on their own.]]

* In ''LightNovel/MadanNoOuToVanadis'', Tigre's bow can do this with any of the Dragonic Tools, which are legendary weapons. These attacks are capable of ''sniping dragons from the sky, punching clean through layered steel fortress doors and obliterating entire castle keeps''.
* The ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' [[ComicBookAdaptation manga]] set some time after the events of the second season: "Nanoha and Fate Mid-Ranged Annihilation Combination! Air Attack, Blast Calamity!" [[PersonOfMassDestruction Hayate]] used one of her bigger spells to match their combined attack, and the explosion made from the two colliding forces was one of the few things that was able to destroy [[StoneWall Yuuno's]] ContainmentField.

* A recurring technique in the ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series is the "Triangle Attack", executed by having three specific units (usually Pegasus Knights) surround an enemy, and then attacking it. The resulting beatdown is a guaranteed CriticalHit.

* In ''{{Tenchu}}'''s cooperative mode, if one player makes a stealth kill, and his partner is also in-range and undetected, the game executes a mini-{{cutscene}} of a double stealth kill on an AmazingTechnicolorBattlefield.

* ''VideoGame/UrbanReign'' for the PS2 features these extensively as every single character(even the lowest of mooks) has several. Just grab an enemy when a friend's close by, or hold your target still and let your buddy walk up to you and a team attack will trigger.

* ''VideoGame/HoshigamiRuiningBlueEarth'' was an underplayed (due to bad design choices leading to NintendoHard) PS1 title in which you could set up a "Session." Characters in Session would hit an enemy in the direction they (the characters) were facing, presuming an enemy was ''fed'' to them using the "Shoot" command; getting all six characters involved in a Session was an almost-guaranteed One Hit Kill, and had the added bonus of possibly looting their equipment.

* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' was one of the first games to use combination attacks, allowing two or even all three party members to unleash devastating special movies. Its sequel ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' also has Dual or Triple Techs, but these are very few in number (even more so given the game's LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters), and not really worth the effort given the character combinations required to pull them off and the fact that each can be used exactly ''once'' per combat. That said, Serge and Glenn's incarnation of X-Strike remains pretty damn effective, especially after each has gotten his InfinityPlusOneSword (or in Glenn's case, [[DualWielding swords]]).

It even works some characterization into this system, in that your surly and aloof TokenEvilTeammate doesn't have any Dual Techs, and can only perform Triple Techs if you seek out and equip certain items.

** '''Thunderstorm''' ([[BlowYouAway Ruby]]/[[PlayingWithFire Yang]]): Ruby creates a small ball of whirling wind, and Yang bounces a fireball off of it, both re-directing her attack and enhancing it.
** '''Mudslide''' ([[MakingASplash Weiss]]/[[DishingOutDirt Blake]]): Blake liquefies the ground and slides along the mud while Weiss does the same with some ice, as they attack simultaneously from both sides.
** '''Sandstorm''' ([[BlowYouAway Ruby]]/[[DishingOutDirt Blake]]): Blake breaks up the ground into tiny fragments of dust and sand, and Ruby blows it up into the air to create a sandstorm, obscuring vision.
** '''Volcano''' ([[DishingOutDirt Blake]]/[[PlayingWithFire Yang]]): Blake launches Yang skywards, who sets her fists ablaze as she comes back down to earth.
** '''Blizzard''' ([[BlowYouAway Ruby]]/[[MakingASplash Weiss]]): Weiss freezes her water into thousands of tiny particles of snow and ice, and Ruby sends them blowing towards the enemy to freeze them en masse.
