* Done in a very meta sense for the TrueFinalBoss of ''VideoGame/NierAutomata''. [[spoiler: Framed as Pod 042 risking his life to recover 2B, 9S and A2's data after their deaths, the final boss of Ending E is a BulletHell shmup battle against the end credits. Said fight is ''extremely'' difficult, to the point of nearly the entire screen being covered in bullets, but every time you die you get an increasing number of encouraging messages from other players, and after enough deaths you're able to call upon their help directly in the form of multiple ships donated by other players, which give the player extra firepower and form a shield around them. After the ending is over, the player is then encouraged to sacrifice their save data in order to encourage and help other players.]]

** DigimonFrontier, meanwhile, is essentially the story of five [[spoiler: (later six)]] lonely kids coming together as friends, and then their friendship saving the world [[spoiler: in the form of the Zeta Hybrids and later Susasnoomon.]] This plus the PowerOfLove also manages to [[spoiler: bring Kouichi back to life after his heroic sacrifice in the final battle.]]

* ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'': While it is a bit of a disservice to simplify as such, this is the general over arching theme surrounding the world of ''Claymore''. The bonds and friendships that form between the characters highlight their humanity and the power of connecting with others, despite the Claymores themselves being half-monster.

* In a sense, ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' does this as well, as a lot of the story revolves around the importance of camaraderie, with Guts, who had been solitary for most of his life, having to rely on his comrades and other people even if he doesn't want to, but forming bonds so strong that he'll go off on a [[RoaringRampageofRevenge rampage]] when that bond is broken, specifically when [[spoiler: his former charismatic leader/friend Griffith betrays the Band of the Hawk by making them sacrifices to the Godhand so that he could continue his selfish life dream, resulting in a nightmare-fueled [[KillEmAll bloodbath]] of [[MoralEventHorizon unforgivable proportions]].]]

** Unlike every other enemy in the game, you can hurt the final boss by throwing friendship hearts at him. In other words, Kirby can destroy an EldritchAbomination by repeatedly asking him to become friends!

* ''VideoGame/KirbyStarAllies'' is entirely powered by this trope: Kirby has to use hearts to turn his foes into his friends so they can all team up together to save the universe. The game actually is heavily turned towards a multiplayer gameplay, so it would take this trope right to the people playing it!

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', the Tournament of Power enforces this trope: Goku is part of a team of ten fighters ([[DefeatMeansFriendship most of whom are former enemies / rivals of his]]), and the tournament rules mean that good teamwork is critical to success. It takes Goku a while to really understand this, and even then his tendency to go it alone puts his team at a disadvantage at several points in the competition. This is ultimately epitomised in the final fight between Goku and Universe 11's Jiren. [[spoiler:Jiren is a being who became the WorldsStrongestMan, supposedly stronger than even a God of Destruction, by himself, and thus considers friendship or any bonds as pathetic due to his DarkAndTroubledPast and uses his teammates within the Pride Troopers as tools to help obtain greater power. Goku is a man constantly striving to go further and further past his bounds, and treats friend and foe alike with kindness even if they don't deserve it. This is what allows Goku to awaken and master Ultra Instinct, a form not even Jiren can reach. This is ultimately proven when, in the second to last episode, Jiren attempts to destroy the stands holding Goku's Universe 7 friends and allies. Goku slaps away his attempt, tells him that what he just did [[ThisIsUnforgivable is unforgivable]], then beats Jiren into the ground, proving that friendship trumps his cynical views.]]
