* The pre-Winston ''Film/{{Ghostbusters|1984}}'': 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''.

* The Balloon Shop are a three piece comedy troupe, formed by Olan Rogers (The loud and jovial one), Thomas Gore(The closest any of them can get to being a straight man), and Joshua Pursley(The butt of nearly every joke). The three made videos after meeting each other in High School. There are no solid roles for any of the characters, because the roles change depending on each video. Their videos range from fairly realistic (BBQ Fiesta) to insanely unrealistic and kooky (Birds, and The Sargentos)

* ''Homestuck'': The Midnight Crew. Their leader is Spades Slick, a vile backstabber who forms all the plans, and there are Clubs Deuce, who more resembles a TagAlongKid than a member of the crew, and Hearts Boxcars, [[TheBigGuy a big guy]] who just tags along with their plans, and Diamonds Droog, the OnlySaneMan.

* In Creator/JulesVerne's ''JourneyToTheCenterOfTheEarth'', Axel Lidenbrock sees himself as the sane guy, his uncle as the leader, and their guide Hans as the blind follower. It later turns out they're a more effective PowerTrio than they look...

* In the classic ''LastOfTheSummerWine'' trio Foggy comes up with the schemes, Compo is the one who knows it'll lead to disaster, but can't do anything to stop it, and Clegg is not so much clueless as content to offer wry observations from the sidelines, since he's never the one it's happening to.

** ''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.

* ''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.''
