** In "Anime/DigimonTamers", Renamon was finally able to evolve after Ruki refused to leave her for dead. Later she explains that she was able to evolve because Ruki truly cared for her. Doubles as [[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming (Crowning Moment of Heartwarming)]]

* Though subtle, the PowerOfFriendship looks like the reason [[spoiler: all the main characters]] survive the last few episodes of ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'' despite all odds. It is [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming beautiful.]]

** A big difference between the conclusions of the anime and the manga. The anime ends with Maka's 'punch of courage' that fitted the series themes from one angle. The manga goes for the broader, Power of Friendship approach by having Soul's [[MusicalAssassin 'musical']] skill invoke the power/courage/support of ''all'' the True Companions to allow [[spoiler: him and Maka to reach Crona within Asura's soul. And [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming then]] Soul leaves a spot for Crona's 'note' to add to the tune.]]

* In ''JLA/Titans: The Technis Imperative'', Cyborg/Victor Stone (who has become confused and crazy and turned into a giant machine who tries to eat the moon) gets talked down by Garfield Logan, his best friend, who tells him repeatedly that [[IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight they're still friends and he isn't buying the idea that Vic doesn't care about that.]] Incidentally, it's a shock of familiar friendship behavior that actually grabs Vic's attention: after several other Titans try reasoned pleas, Gar erupts with an irritated "Hey Rustbucket! ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Let go of the frickin' moon already!!]]''" before launching into his long list of explanations of why Vic's actions mean he is a colossal dumbass.

* ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' Bartowski has lost his powers and nothing seems to work to restore them. And to make matters worse the bad guys capture him and his best friend (who has no idea of what he really does) and are about to execute them, with no help in sight. In one of the series greatest moments, Chuck regains his powers.....with a simple buddy talk with Morgan.

* ''Franchise/StarTrek'' features a lot of this; especially in ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries The Original Series]]'' and in ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Next Generation]]''. Many episodes revolve around one of the crew being kidnapped, threatened, or otherwise in danger, and having the rest of the crew band together to save them. Has resulted in plenty of CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and BigDamnHeroes.

** Ike from Fire Emblem's famous line in [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]: "[[MemeticMutation I fight for my friends.]]"
** Near the end of ''Awakening'', [[spoiler: it is revealed that the Avatar can destroy Grima for good, although doing so would erase him/her from existence. It's mentioned it is possible, although very unlikely, for him/her to be brought back if the bonds s/he formed with other people was strong enough. [[HeartwarmingMoments It works.]]]]

** This is the main theme (just look at at least half the SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments listed on that page!), and it doesn't just apply to the friendship of the four main characters. Does anyone have the relevant Andrew Hussie quote?

* ''Webcomic/TerrorIsland'', of all comics, had this: the entire plot revolved around roommates Sid and Stephen trying to make the other buy the groceries. [[spoiler: At the end, they report having found a grocery store. When asked which of them bought the groceries first, they say that they both did. They're asked how that's possible, and they respond "friendship".]] CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.

* According to the 11/26 uStream, [[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming this along with the fanbase are what's keeping the cast of]] WebVideo/EverymanHYBRID sane. Compare it to many other SlenderManMythos stories where, for the most part, the protagonists are alone against him.

* In ''ARG/TheWallWillFall'' AlternateRealityGame, this was an integral part of defeating Cthulhu. Yes, ''that'' [[{{Necronomicon}} Cthulhu]]. The final battle involved players writing stories and songs around the theme of teamwork after selecting [[HeroicSacrifice one of their own]] to challenge the Elder God directly. According to WordOfGod, the players hit the required amount of writing within ''two days'' of the announcement. This, plus their concern for the player being sent on what was effectively a SuicideMission lead to the end of the game [[AwesomeMoments being changed in order to save them]].

** The Pokémon-Amie feature in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' allows you to interact with your Pokémon and increase its affection for you. Pokémon with high Affection get a number of bonuses like an increased critical hit rate or a chance to shrug off status effects, ignore stat-lowering moves like Leer, or even ''survive attacks that would have knocked them out'' through sheer force of will.

** In ''BigBrother'', if the other houseguests don't like you for whatever reason, you can expect to face the public vote. This often leads to an UnpopularPopularCharacter, adored by the audience but disliked by their fellow players.

** The penultimate arc dealt with the "theft" of the heroes' Friendship Power with a number of cursed dolls. This resulted in everyone abandoning our hero when he needed a partner for the tag-team TournamentArc. Thankfully, he manages to get some help from his unaffected ObiWan.

** The ''Tales'' series as a whole began using this from ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' onwards; focusing its storylines around how friendship can fix anything ([[VideoGame/TalesOfGraces even a]] HeelFaceTurn via DemonicPossession [[ProtagonistCenteredMorality can be fixed by believing in friendship enough]]). Considering that their stories ''used'' to deal with more "mature" issues like [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia free will]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss cloning]] and [[VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia rac]][[VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth ism]], this shift in tone is something of a BaseBreaker. To clarify: while previous games in the series ''did'' use ThePowerOfFriendship, it was only ever brought up as part of the obligatory {{World Of Cardboard Speech}}es; not ''the'' core plot element.

* Gets {{Deconstructed}}, {{Reconstructed}}, and {{Deconstructed}} ''[[ZigZaggedTrope again]]'' in [[FanFic/APikachuInLove A Pikachu in Love]]. Pikachu spends most of the fic questioning just how strong his bond with Ash really is, how long it would ''honestly'' last, and does consider leaving him at a few points to stay with Pichi, who he could have a full relationship with due to both of them being Pokemon. [[spoiler: Gets Reconstructed in that Pikachu eventually realizes just how much Ash and Co. really love him, and feels ashamed of himself for thinking Ash would forget about and leave him behind one day. It then gets deconstructed again in that it's his friendship with them that forces him to leave Pichi for a final time, and just [[TearJerker after she had confessed her love for him in hopes he would stay with her...]]]]

to:

* Gets {{Deconstructed}}, {{Reconstructed}}, In ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'' the only reason Shinji and {{Deconstructed}} ''[[ZigZaggedTrope again]]'' Asuka were able to [[spoiler: perform a joint synchronization with Unit-03 was because they were friends with Hikari and she had been absorbed during the previous angel attack. Said friendship also managed to get her out of the Eva when the battle was over.]]

** Tea/Anzu displayed this so much (at one point even saying "the power of friendship") that it became a running gag in the Abridged Series. Joey recovered from being ''struck by lightning'' because of friendship.

* The Gatsby Sandwich, which is a local favourite of Cape Town, is rumored to taste better when shared among friends. There is a grain of truth to this as it was originally invented by factory workers who would share their lunches together into a single sandwich, as they each had little. Thus every other person who joined in added a bit more to a sandwich that would become far greater than the sum of it's parts.
