** Kakashi and Gai: they're about as different from one another as possible. One is an aloof, eccentric genius, the other is a boisterous, painfully oblivious fitness fanatic. In fact, the only thing they seem to have in common is their desire to protect Konoha, yet somehow they're pretty much each other's best friends.

* On ''Series/DogWithABlog'', we have Avery and Stan. First, Stan is a talking dog, second he not only is voiced by a grown man, but seems to have the mindset of a grown man. And did I forget to mention that Avery is a 'tween girl?

* ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings:'' Merry and the entire royal house of Rohan. Especially his close friendship with Éowyn.
** Also Gimli and Legolas.
*** Especially odd given that, up to that point, Dwarves and Elves weren't on the best of terms and their parents didn't get along in ''Literature/TheHobbit''.[[note]]And when we say "didn't get along" we mean Legolas' father ''imprisoned'' Gimli's father for, essentially, being lost in the woods and being a dwarf.[[/note]]

* Marty and Doc in the ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' trilogy.

* Marty and Doc in the ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' trilogy. As close as a old scientist and a teenage CoolLoser can be. Perhaps Marty sees Doc as a grandpa?

* ''Literature/McAuslan'' has the CaptainSmoothAndSergeantRough pair Lt.[=MacKenzie=] and Sgt. [=MacCaw=]. [=MacKenzie=] is a slender, intensely aristocratic young officer who is politically "somewhere to the right of Louis XIV". [=MacCaw=] is a welder turned union organizer from the Glasgow shipyards, and an ardent Communist. When the two can be kept from discussing politics (which they will do, loudly and sometimes bloodily) they make a splendid team, and between them they run the best platoon in the regiment.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'' the [[ArtificialHuman Grineer]] and [[MegaCorp Corpus]], the ruling powers of the Origin System, hate each other with an intense passion, to the point that [[DefectorFromDecadence the Steel Meridian and the Perrin Sequence]] are violently opposed, even though they're both [[WeAreStrugglingTogether trying to help the oppressed civilian populace]]. Against this background, the greatest bromance in the game is [[FriendInTheBlackMarket Darvo Bek]], a rogue Corpus trader, and [[PintSizedPowerhouse Clem]], a Grineer clone with the [[CloneDegeneration 'flaw']] of free will ([[PokemonSpeak and a limited vocabulary]]).

** Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg are known for their diametrically opposed political and judicial philosophies and their frequent snark wars in opinions; Scalia is an "originalist" conservative famous for turning his (numerous) dissents into screeds against modern trends in the law, while Ginsburg (often known as "[[Music/TheNotoriousBIG the Notorious RBG]]", a moniker she has amusedly accepted herself) is at the cutting edge of those very same trends, and when they write opinions on the same case, they're likely to [[VitriolicBestBuds fire a few shots across the metaphorical bow]] at each other. They go to dinner together every week, their families vacation together, and they are fixtures at the opera in DC, usually sitting near each other.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Series/LegendsofTomorrow'' has Dr. Stein (Older gentleman, married for years, professor nuclear physics) and Jax (High school graduate, ex football prospect, car mechanic). Together they form Firestorm, so it's in their best interests to tolerate each other. However they do genuinely like each other, and both go out of their way to help and protect the other. In fact, Stein and Jax have risked their lives to save the other for reasons besides Firestorm, and Stein has tried at least once to play Wingman to Jax.
** Dr. Stein also ended up forming a companionship with Heatwave/Mick Rory (Pyromaniac thief). It's not as present, but Rory takes it personally when they disagree. Captain Cold (master thief, deadpan snarker) ends up growing fond of Jax and Ray Palmer (Boyscout and Scientist).
