* The Gang in ''ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' shuffle roles around many episodes, but Mac, Dennis and Charlie are the most common trio (usually with Dennis as the clueless leader, Mac as the ignored voice of reason and Charlie as the dumb follower, although this can switch an any given moment). Dee, Artemis and The Waitress are the DistaffCounterpart.

* ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' gives us Yao, Chien-Po and Ling. They served largely as the comic relief, often involving slapstick humor that made them reminiscent of the Three Stooges. Yao is the self-appointed leader of the trio. Ling and Yao occasionally have disagreements, but Ling grows to accept Yao as their leader. Chien-Po is either naive compared to the two of them, or he's serene enough to accept whatever they do without fuss (it's established that he's very physically strong, so whatever mischief they get into, he could probably rely on his force to get them out of it).

* Vitsin, Nikulin, and Morgunov. A.K.A. The Coward, the Fool and the Experienced. Morgunov is the leader, Nikulin is the dingbat and Vitsin is the complainer.

* A number of Soviet comedies (including ''Film/OperationYAndShuriksOtherAdventures'' and ''Film/KidnappingCaucasianStyle'') feature Vitsin, Nikulin, and Morgunov. A.K.A. The Coward, the Fool and the Experienced. Morgunov is the leader, Nikulin is the dingbat and Vitsin is the complainer. In the 2014 remake of ''Kidnapping, Caucasian Style'', all three are played by different (younger) actors, partly because the three original actors have passed away.

* Variant: ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''. SpongeBob is demented, Patrick is stupid, Squidward is powerless. The difference is that Squidward is the bossy, unsympathetic one. So the audience roots for SpongeBob instead, even as he leads the trio off the cliff.

* The Greaser Dogs from CatDog are an inversion to this trope. They get along while beating up [[IdiotHero Cat]], but they also have some trait to this trope.

* The Red Team in ''RedVsBlue'' are often examples of this, with Sarge being the navigator, Simmons going along with it through thoughts of promotion and glory, and Grif being too lazy to stop them.

* Played with in {{Planetary}}: Elijah Snow is eager to discover the secret history of the world [[spoiler: and fight The Four.]], Jakita Wagner generally follows him because it stops her from getting bored, and The Drummer usually recognizes that it's dangerous but he's too crazy to make his case clearly (and they wouldn't listen if he did).
