* ''VideoGame/PocketArcadeStory'' actually uses this as a gameplay mechanic. You need to form bonds between the various patrons to your arcade by holding events and participating in high score tournaments to unlock new game machines, vendors, vending machines and deco for your arcade.

** But the best part is when all the Straw Hats declare '''war''' against the "World Government" (a.k.a. 170 united nations) just to prove their friendship to a [[DarkAndTroubledPast desperate]] [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech and]] [[DeathSeeker suicidal]] Robin and save her from herself.

** In a more literal sense, two mages who are very close to each other can perform a Unison Raid, linking their magic to produce an incredibly powerful effect. The first time we see this is when Lucy and Juvia use the power of their friendship to use water magic to overwhelm a [[ManOfKryptonite guy who can absorb water]] by ''sheer force''.

** During the last two episodes of season 13, the Blood Gulch Crew are up against [[spoiler:Felix]], a professional BountyHunter who is also a veteran of the Great War and strong enough to fight Freelancers. After being mocked by him for the last season-and-a-half, and having no backup from their Freelancer friends, the Crew stick together and [[CurbStompBattle completely humiliate him in a one-sided fight]] before [[spoiler:[[DisneyDeath sending him over the edge of a tower to his death.]]]] Then when they infiltrate the headship of [[spoiler:Chairman Hargrove, they are trapped in his trophy room with his forces about to breach the door, so they gather up all the weapons they have around them in the room, including the Meta's improved armor, and [[LastStand stand together, saying their goodbyes to each other while waiting for the enemy.]]]] Epsilon gets special mention in this moment for [[spoiler:[[HeroicSacrifice sacrificing himself by deconstructing himself]] so he can run Meta's armor and give his friends a chance of making it out alive, even if he'll never know if it worked.]]

* In ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'', this was explored in the season two finale between [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Red and Charizard]] and [[Franchise/{{Digimon}} Tai and Agumon]]. While both young heroes have major bonds between their fire-breathing lizard companions, Wiz and Boomstick ultimately decide that what Red and Charizard has is probably more akin to Master and Slave, where Tai and Agumon's bond is that of true friendship. This is easily shown when Tai runs up and delivers a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on Red, upset that Mega Charizard X is essentially being a bully to [=WarGreymon=], demanding he call off Charizard.

** Once the series starts moving away from pure shenanigans and starts providing a framework to understand their universe, the odds stacked against the Blood Gulch Crew are absurd - the only way they can even survive is by increasingly relying on each other, working past their faults and shortcomings, even as they relentlessly needle each other for those faults. Of note are two instances in the later seasons:

** In a more mundane example, Rei found in her research that emotional support from friends and family is highly important when dealing with the psychological withdrawal symptoms of the drugs that Doctor Akagi had put her on. And since the only "family" she has is Gendo (the same person who had Ritsuko give her the drugs in the first place), she understandably asks Shinji and Asuka for help instead.

* ComicBook/{{Nightwing}}'s greatest weapon. Sure, natural acrobatics and Batman-trained skills in combat and sleuthing are nothing to sneeze at, but no other hero in the DCUniverse boasts the sheer number of allies Nightwing has. Hell, the guy has had his ''villains'' team up with him against bigger or badder foes. Why? Basically because he asked nicely.
