* "John Doe" and Harley Quinn in ''VideoGame/BatmanTheTelltaleSeries''. The game specifically shakes up their relationship so that instead of being a gunmoll and henchwoman, Harley is much more of an equal partner in Mr. J's crimes (and she could fairly be called the brains of the outfit, at least at first). Season 2 ends with either [[spoiler: you convincing John it's best to turn Harley in for the sake of her mental health, or John gradually becoming more independent of her until he sells her out to make his getaway]].

** Note though that the song takes a little artistic license with the story of the real-life Bonnie and Clyde: despite what the lyrics claim and despite their infamy (some might even say popularity) with the American public, Bonnie and Clyde were never "public enemy number one," as the FBI was concentrating its efforts on John Dillinger and assigned the Bonnie and Clyde case to local agents in Texas and Louisiana.

* [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonnie_and_Clyde Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow]] of historical and cinematic fame. Throughout fiction, Bonnie and Clyde tend to be subjected to HistoricalHeroUpgrade, something that's helped by photos found of the two goofing around as in the trope image above. In reality, the public grew to dislike them due to their deliberate cop killings as well as killing several civilians. This contrasted with straight forward bandits like John Dillinger, who weren't interested in unprovoked bloodshed. Attempts by law enforcement to confront the two had resulted in them escaping and often killing multiple officers in the process, hence why their deaths at the hands of a shoot-to-kill ambush posse [[CombatPragmatist was deemed necessary]]; Given that kind of motivation, law enforcement types do ''not'' fool around. Finally, unlike the otherwise-prophetic poem quoted above, they were ''not'' buried side by side.

** Bonnie and Clyde were accompanied on part of their adventures by Clyde's older brother, Buck, and his wife, Blanche. Buck was shot in the head during one of Bonnie and Clyde's gunfights and died five days later; Blanche was blinded in one eye during the same gunfight but survived, living to the age of 77.
