* [[ComicBook/Batgirl2000 Cassandra Cain]] and [[ComicBook/Batgirl2009 Stephanie Brown]] zig-zag this. On the one hand they can both be described as and bonded over being teenaged girls who became costumed heroines in part to oppose their abusive supervillian fathers... but then there is the matter of ''degree''[[note]](Steph's life, aside from her dad's side gig as a third-rate Riddler knock-off, [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent was on the depressing side of ordinary]]. Cass was raised in a bunker by one of the world's most feared assassins as an experiment in [[TykeBomb language deprivation and kung fu mastery]] until she ran off at age 8.)[[/note]].

** Plus, at the end, Loki decided he owed Spidey one, and gave him a sort of talisman that he can cash in for that favor. Even though the arc is never brought up (again, it ''was'' only 2 issues) fans are hoping it could be a possible ChekhovsGun to undo ''Comicbook/OneMoreDay'' or something. Only time will tell.

Loki later on tricked Spidey into using his favor to save a random civilian, however.

* In ''Fanfic/StevenUniverseAndTheHuntersOfArcadia'', Blinky and Pearl hit it off rather quickly. The two of them being immortal by nature, they both bond over a mutual knowledge of history, not knowing that both of them have lived history.

* ''Manga/Overlord2012'' has the (human) Emperor Jircniv and the ([[MoleMan Quagoa]]) king Riyuro, who bonded over both being former lords of their people who were completely and utterly trounced by Ainz. They laugh over the news that Ainz was defeated in battle while aiding the Holy Kingdom, confident they'll soon have a newly-dethroned comrade joining them.

** Horace Harkness, a grizzled petty officer who, at the time of the first book, has failed twelve times to be promoted to CPO due to his penchant for smuggling and picking fights with marines, makes an unlikely pair with Prescott Tremaine, a wide-eyed young ensign who is assigned to inspect shipments in the Basilisk system, with Harkness helping thanks to his familiarity with the tricks smugglers use. Harkness repeatedly hacks into the Bureau of Personnel's computers to ensure he was posted to whatever ship Tremaine is on, and they are pretty much inseparable.

** There is also a tendency for him to be paired up with teenaged girl side-kicks. The general idea is to play a gruff, outsider gets hit with fatherly instinct sort of angle, but he does it over and over again! Specifically he has formed a duo with Kitty Pride, Jubilee, and a young Rogue (in the movies). Later on, he's mentored X-23, his female clone (ok, so perhaps that friendship is not-so odd).

** Kurama and Hiei count as well. The former is polite and pleasant ([[BewareTheNiceOnes unless you piss him off]]), while Hiei is rude and sullen.

** ''Series/LegendsofTomorrow'' has Dr. Stein (older gentleman, married for years, professor of 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.

Added DiffLines:

* The introverted, melancholic Creator/HideakiAnno is friends with the straightforward and outspoken Creator/HayaoMiyazaki and the incredibly flamboyant Creator/KunihikoIkuhara. Miyazaki notably helped Anno overcome a severe depressive relapse during production of the third ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' movie, and Anno's friendship with Ikuhara extends to HeterosexualLifePartners territory, with Anno referring to Ikuhara as "Kuni-chan" in public. There are even persistent rumors that Ikuhara was the basis for Kaworu in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', which puts the HoYay between him and Shinji in an interesting new light given how Shinji is based in part on Anno himself; note that Ikuhara's stance on the rumors is an outright ShrugOfGod.

* ''VideoGame/BlazblueCrossTagBattle'': Yosuke (from VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}) is treated as a joke by the rest of the cast: Linne (VideoGame/UnderNightInBirth) thinks he's an annoying kid who's way in over his head and Jin (Franchise/{{Blazblue}}) [[ComedicSociopathy wants to cut his tongue out]]. However he gets along ''really'' well with [[LittleBitBeastly Makoto Nanaya]].
