** ''WesternAnimation/{{Transformers}}'' has two more trios like this. In ''TransformersArmada,'' Rad is the ringleader, Carlos right behind him, Alexis trying to keep them out of trouble. In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime,'' TooDumbToLive Miko puts herself InHarmsWay ''explicitly'' because it's fun to her, Jack follows to save her butt (thrusting him into 'driver' role despite his ''not'' really thinking "let's go into the middle of a warzone because it's KEWL LOLZ!" is a great plan) while Raf takes the Alexis role.

* The pre-Winston ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'': Peter (the navigator); Ray (the driver); and Egon (the OnlySaneMan). Uniquely, they balance the ComicTrio qualities with those of a more traditional PowerTrio: Ray combines massive amounts of paranormal knowledge with very practical real-world skills (he rebuilds that old ambulance into the team's CoolCar); Egon comes up with the calculations and science that allow for Ghostbusting; and Peter, the schmoozer, facilitates the actual business side of the Ghostbusters operation. Most importantly, their CrazyScheme ''succeeds''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has a couple of different trios, but Dimo, Maxim and Oggie are the best example. Dimo is the StraightMan of the group, but Maxim and Oggie tend to switch roles every so often. Generally Maxim is the one who thinks he knows best, and Oggie just goes along with it. But don't be fooled by the goofing around - they're all 300-year-old [[SuperSoldier Super Soldiers]] and can very quickly become a PowerTrio if called for.
--> '''Maxim:''' Excellent! Hy vill teach him how to impress de ''gorls!''\\
'''Oggie:''' Hy vill teach him about de birds und de veasles!\\
'''Dimo:''' ''[under his breath]'' Und hy vill teach him how to ''avoid those two.''

%%* The Greaser Dogs from CatDog are an inversion to this trope. They get along while beating up [=CatDog=], but they also have some traits of this trope.

* The Hyenas from ''Disney/TheLionKing''. Shenzi has the power as Navigator, Banzai does what she tells him, and while far from sane, Ed is the guy in the back seat, along for the ride.

* ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' plays this interestingly. Rocko, the main character is usually the leader while Heffer is the fool and Filburt is the neurotic NervousWreck. Sometimes, the trio alternates their roles, with Heffer being the leader who mainly instigated the predicaments, Filburt following along, and Rocko complaining about his friend's antics.

* 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.
