* In ''Fanfic/OneYear'', [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Yu Narukami]] resolves to do this- not with [[TrueCompanions the Investigation Team, which has remained close in the months after his departure from Inaba]], but with the group of friends he had prior to coming to Inaba, since his time in Inaba convinced him to make the most of his time in any one place and not keep people at a distance. Unfortunately, due to his friends' various issues, from increased demands on their time due to studying for exams to an ArrangedMarriage, this is harder than it seems.

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' is predicated on the eponymous team being disbanded after a RobotWar, only to be reformed by one of its members. Soldier 76, [=McCree=], Genji, Tracer, Mei, Torbjorn, Reinhardt, Winston, Mercy and [[spoiler:Reaper, the man who got it disbanded to begin with]] are all former Overwatch agents who have responded for one reason or another, meaning that a team comprised entirely or primarily of them is a band that's gotten back together.

* Music/LunaSea and Phantasmagoria reunited for the [[Music/HidetoMatsumoto hide]] memorial summit in 2008, Music/LunaSea also for a christmas concert in 2007. Of course, then they reunited for real in 2010.

* [[BlueOysterCult Blue Oyster Cult]] brought back Albert and Joe Bouchard, and Allen Lanier for their 40th anniversary show in November 2012. This ended up being the last ever performance featuring all five original members due to Lanier's death in August 2013.
* A meta example in Donald Fagen's song ''H Gang'', about an "orphan girl with that crazy red hair" putting her old band back together after she gets out of jail.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Parodied in one ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'' story arc. Tycho and Gabe briefly break up and try to do their own comic strips, but both fail miserably. They then have a conversation about "getting the band back together". They then ask their guitarist -- who presumably provides the strip's music -- if he wants to get back together with them.
** [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2005/4/22/ I SAID FUCK YEAH!!!]]
** {{Troperiffic}}ally done with ''[[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2008/6/25/ Paint The Line 2]]''.
* ''Webcomic/NecessaryMonsters'': Jonathon putting his team of covert monster-cops back together is part of the opening act.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': Meenah is trying to do this with a band who have been dead for a very long time. Sadly for her, the band in question is more or less evenly divided into people smart enough to have a better plan than taking on an invulnerable demon with a head-down charge, and people who are too traumatised, sex-obsessed, creepy, evil or otherwise dysfunctional to successfully boil water, let alone kill Lord English.
* ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'': Foreshadowed in [[http://skin-horse.com/comic/2014-10-27/ this]] strip, one of the creators having returned from having had a baby.

** The post-hardcore band Music/{{Finch}} had originally broken up in 2010, as a result of several false starts to a rumored third album. Two years later, the band members were contacted by their former manager to do some tenth anniversary shows to commemorate the release of the band's debut album, ''What It Is to Burn''. This eventually turned into a tour, and during this time the band started writing songs again. This resulted in the band's reunion, as well as the release of their long-awaited third album, fittingly entitled ''Back to Oblivion''.

* Happened with both Music/PinkFloyd and Music/LedZeppelin at LiveAid - was supposed to happen to Music/TheBeatles as well (with Julian Lennon standing in from John Lennon), but alas, that one didn't [[IncrediblyLamePun come together...]] Also the only time Sting ever performed ''Money For Nothing'' with DireStraits after the song's original recording.

* Happened in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' book ''Discworld/ThiefOfTime''. It was played straight, in a ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' book! Anyway, what happens is that the world is about to end, and so Death tries to round up the other three members of the Four HorsemenOfTheApocalypse. They all refuse, but later come just in time anyway and decide to [[spoiler: start kicking Auditor butt instead of heralding the end of the world. This includes the fifth horseman, Kaos, who also joins just in the nick of time.]]

* Pre-timeskip part of ''TwentiethCenturyBoys'' fits this trope really well. When Kenji realizes that disasters he and his gang imagined about during their elementary school years are happening in reality, he contacts his old friends who made up the prophecy together to stop 'Friend' who is from the old gang from elementary school.

* The first volume of ''MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'' has [[BigGood Commander Hayate]] reconstructing the [[TheSquad Riot Force Six task force]] from ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' so they could resolve the Hückebein and Eclipse case before it could grow into a serious incident.

* Having had more different line-ups than an Italian coalition government, and at least thirty-five different members over the years, [[IAmTheBand Dave Brock]] attempted to create the Hawkestra, bringing together ''everyone'' who had at one time or another played with space-rockers {{Hawkwind}}. Alas, it only served to remind everyone as to ''why'' the band had broken up and reformed with new members so many times. The exercise broke up in disastrous acrimony, with people reviving old arguments, grievances, grudges, vendettas and blood-feuds, placing the blame on each other, but almost universally at that bastard Brock. Division of the revenues from the poorly-received Hawkestra gigs caused even more rows, and the repercussions simmer on today.
