* Estelle and Rita from ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia''. A prim and proper book-smart princess with little worldly experience, and an aggressive mage who's big on getting stuff done on her own when no one can help.

* ''[[Videogame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]'' and its sequel ''Radiant Dawn'' has Shinon and Gatrie, who are HeterosexualLifePartners despite being completely ''opposite'' in personality. Shinon is an arrogant, unfriendly and independent DeadpanSnarker and ColdSniper who is most often OnlyInItForTheMoney, while Gatrie is a cheerful and friendly BoisterousBruiser and CasanovaWannabe whose [[TheDitz somewhat scatterbrained nature]] means that he's often taken advantage of by the women he tries to woo.

** During the same time period as the above example, the [[HornyVikings Nords]] of Skyrim and the [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs (Orsimer)]] have seemingly forged such a friendship. While the Nords typically [[FantasticRacism despise]] all [[OurElvesAreBetter races of Mer (Elves)]], they've bonded somewhat with the Orcs over their mutual respect for [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking strong leaders]], [[TheBlackSmith affinity for smithing]], and [[ProudWarriorRace love of fighting]]. Following the sack of Orsinium, the ([[FightingForAhomeland short-lived]]) Orc home province between High Rock and Hammerfell, Orcs have set up numerous strongholds dotting Skyrim where they are allowed to live in relative peace by the Nords.

Added DiffLines:

* One of the closest (And weirdest) set of buddies in ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' is Tracer and Winston. Tracer is a spunky and hyper ex-test pilot/turned Overwatch operative from England. Winston is a hyper-intelligent, reserved guy...on top of being a ''talking gorilla from the moon''. Despite their marked differences, they're two of the games closest friends.

** [[IdiotHero Naruto]] and [[TheSmartGuy Shikamaru]]. They would seem to have nothing in common with one being HotBlooded and the other the poster boy for BrilliantButLazy, but they have an extremely strong friendship that is one of Naruto's few normal ones. Bonus points for the fact that even in their Academy days, although Naruto didn't consider him one of his TrueCompanions back then, Shikamaru was one of the few people in their age group (the others being Kiba and Choji) who Naruto seemed to get on well enough with to actually spend time in his company. Not quite friendship then (more like friendly acquaintance), but it forms further basis for one when the series began and they (along with the rest of the Konoha 11) gradually become FireForgedFriends.
** [[RivalTurnedEvil Short-lived though it was]], the relationship between Naruto and Sasuke was one of the oddest friendships in the series. At the time, Sasuke was a quiet, moody prodigy who was ridiculously popular despite wanting to be left alone, while Naruto was a loud, obnoxious idiot who was [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer shunned despite wanting friends more than anything else]]. Just to add to the weirdness, Naruto had a [[LovingAShadow one-sided shallow crush]] on the girl [[SingleTargetSexuality who always loved Sasuke]], and both of them desperately wanted to fight each other (although not over the girl; it was [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter for other reasons]]). Not to mention that they started out hating each other, their first real interaction as classmates being a fight. Despite all this, for a brief time in the series they had a very strong friendship marked by mutual respect, [[HoYay affection]], and trust. This bond was, in fact, so strong that Naruto insists that Sasuke is still his best friend despite Sasuke trying to kill him on three separate occasions.
*** There was a brief and unspoken moment of understanding back in their Academy days however; a few days after Sasuke lost his clan, Naruto found him near a pond and Naruto wanted to talk to him. Both looked at one another and said nothing, but there was an unspoken bond. Naruto himself confessed that he actually wanted to befriend Sasuke, but it ended up to where he viewed him as his rival. Naruto does reflect on how things would be different had he approached Sasuke like a friend in the first place.

** The Tailed Beasts and their Jinchūriki hosts. Especially odd considering that for centuries, the Tailed Beasts were thought of as nothing more than living, malevolent weapons made of chakra [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman that needed to be controlled]], instead of the sapient beings that they are. This made the Beasts very distrustful of humans, but several of them began to warm up to each of their recent Jinchūriki hosts, usually because they treat their Beasts with respect. The first friendship like this seen in the series was between Killer B and Gyūki the Eight Tails, were ''the latter'' serves as the StraightMan as opposed to the former's [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} goofiness]]. It's oddly [[HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming]] in a way, [[spoiler:so much so that after seeing how those 2 get along, Naruto expressed his desire to be friends with Kurama the Nine Tails. This friendship finally came to pass starting with Chapter 570.]]
