* In ''WorldOfWarcraft'', pairing a tank with an [=AoE=] tosser is an extremely effective combo. Without purple gear, a protection warrior will take forever to kill six mobs, and a mage will never survive their counterattacks, but together they can easily handle a dozen.

* ''VideoGame/SuikodenI'' has swordsman Lepant and his Earth Rune-equipped wife Eileen. The actual game mechanics subvert it, though, because half of the Earth Rune's spells are bugged and do not perform their stated functions at all.

** In the first generation of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGeneologyOfTheHolyWar'', the only two static couples are Sigurd and Deirdre, and Quan and Ethlin; Sigurd and Quan favor swords and lances respectively, while Deirdre and Ethlin are both staff users, though Ethlin also [[CombatMedic uses a sword]]. The second generation gives a GenerationXerox to the couples' respective sons; Seliph can marry most of the women in the second generation, but he has a significant head start with the priestess Lana or her replacement Muirnne. Leif's romantic relationship with the Troubador Nanna is canonized in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemThracia776''. Assuming a certain [[BrotherSisterIncest glitch]] isn't used, Seliph also has a platonic version with his half-sister Julia.

* In ''FarlandSaga'', SquishyWizard Karin is rejected from joining an adventurer's guild because she has no swordsman to back her up, but she soon forces Al into her party, kicking off the plot.

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' ''loves'' this trope.

to:

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' ''loves'' this trope. Note that offensive mages usually gain staves when they [[PrestigeClass promote]], so these tend to double as fighter/healer combos at high levels.



* On top of having duos of the other variety, ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' has a few Fighter and Medic duos.

to:

* On top of having duos of the other variety, ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' has a few Fighter and Medic duos. Much like their counterparts, healers usually gain access to offensive magic when they [[PrestigeClass promote]], so most of these also count as fighter/GlassCannon combos.

* In ''AtelierSeries'', this means the Hirelings and the Alchemist. The Alchemist is typically very weak while big, tough Hirelings are readily available, making this trope a necessity. The [[{{Pun}} chemistry]] between the Alchemist and her Hirelings is even a major appeal to the fanbase, ''Atelier Elkrone'' indulge entirely in it [[VisualNovel without letting the player doing any alchemy]].

* The Reyvateils in ArTonelico series. The trope is a plot point because the Reyvateils are [[ThePowerOfLove empowered by their love for their warrior]] and, in the first game, a Reyvateil without a partner could be discriminated against.

** [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Boyd and Mist]] play this so straight, it isn't even funny. Despite being a textbook case of SlapSlapKiss, both care for each other deeply and even fall in love with each other if you max out their support conversation, [[TheyDo with them even marrying by the end of the continuity.]] Boyd is also a LightningBruiser who's perfect for frontline combat, while Mist is a CombatMedic who fights with swords and heals with magic. Pairing them together is strongly recommended, as it gives Boyd easy access to a healer while giving Mist protection. Really, the only thing preventing they two being a textbook example is that Boyd averts HeroesPreferSwords by [[AnAxeToGrind fighting with an axe instead.]]

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'', the final boss fight has Link and Zelda teaming up as this.

to:

* In [[TheHero Link]] and [[RoyaltySuperPower Zelda]] often have this dynamic in ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', at least in those cases cases where Zelda actively helps Link with her magic such as in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwordsAdventures'', ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'', ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds'', and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''.
