* Though not technically an intended instance of this trope, hero spells from the {{RTS}} game ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' may be cast simultaneously for a much greater effect. This trope appears primarily in multiplayer environment, where many of these moves became cookie cutter with their repeated use, and are the driving force behind some of the strategies and counter-strategies, often faling into a category of the dreaded {{game breaker}}.

** In ''DefenseOfTheAncients'', a popular custom map for ''Warcraft III'', the gameplay revolves mostly around proper timing and aim of multiple hero skills.
* In ''BrutalLegend'' the player's avatar (either Eddie Riggs, Dark Ophelia, or Emperor Doviculus) can do double team attacks with any friendly unit during stage battles.

* ''{{Ar Tonelico}} 2'' has the Reyvatiels able to use Synchronity Chains after getting into sync through use of Psyche attacks, and the securing of the knowledge of the Combo Magic. While just triggering the chain without a song that evolves to Combo Magic is still good (A very much extended Attack Phase), the Combo Magic can get scary powerful when amped up with Replakia and high Burst...

** An unique non-example is from the original VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG where Bowser gets a Mario Doll weapon. If Mario is conscious when Bowser attacks with it, the doll assumes Mario's place and Bowser ''[[GrievousHarmWithABody throws a surprised Mario at the enemy]]''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' again has the "All-Out Attack", where the entire party rushes weakened enemies at once, while also adding "Random Fire", where the entire party showers random enemies in bullets, and "Baton Touch", where one character gives their turn to another to gain bonuses like enhanced stats.

*** Fusion Spells in ''4'', however, are absent. Until ''[[UpdatedRerelease The Golden]]'' that is, but they seem to work more like in ''Persona 2'', where it takes two party members to execute it.

** In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'', Armaggedon kills absolutely everything. Even Hitler.
*** It doesn't kill the Bonus Boss, Philemon in the EX Dungeon. Instead he COUNTERS you by using it on your whole party if you try it. (It's known as Armageddon R.)
*** ''Persona 3 Portable'' adds even more opportunities with the Double Team attack, although you only need to disable one enemy and it's pretty much only when your ally feels like it.
*** They work differently in ''Persona 2'' and ''3''.
*** In ''Persona 2'', two upwards party members use specific moves (a few even need specific ''Personas'', meaning most or all of the orders to the party have to be exactly as specified), to create a stronger move.
*** In ''Persona 3'', since only the protagonist is controllable and only he can change Personas, all he needs in two specific Personas, and then he can use the Fusion Spell. The ideas of moves defining the spell and two or more people being involved don't appear in ''3''.
*** The change is justified - the series has been generally changed (to fit with the {{Tarot Motif|s}} of Death, which means rebirth in general).

* ''FinalFantasyCrystalChronicles'' allowed characters to cast spells on the same target to form new ones, like Fire and Life spells combining to make Holy. The spells can become even stronger with proper timing, but really strong ones like Firaga+2 require all 4 players to cast their spells with about a second delay between each other. [[AwesomeButImpractical make sure the enemy isn't like, trying to attack you while you set this one up.]]

* ''[[CapcomVsWhatever Namco X Capcom]]'' allows characters to use special attacks known as Multiple Assaults, which are distinct from its normal combat system. These attacks target multiple enemies ''or'' require multiple units, though not necessarily both (some target only one enemy, while some like Taizo Hori's only need one unit to use).

* In ''VideoGame/BraveFrontier'', when two or more units hit the same enemy at the same time, they create a Spark that deals more damage.



* The ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' move [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Beat_Up_(move) "Beat Up"]] is a Combination Attack of all your Pokémon, which actually does take in account the Attack values of the Pokémon involved, but leaves out some of the subtler attack mechanics in order to make it work.

A SpecialAttack that occurs 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.]]
