* ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' deconstructed this with Rorschach and Nite Owl II. They broke up as a team after Dreiberg realized how pointless fighting crime is. Their brief reunion showed them barely functioning because of their different temperaments.

[[OddCouple Two very different characters]] are obliged to work together to solve a crime. The premise is very often, but not always, expressed in {{trailers}} and pitches as "[[WunzaPlot One's an X. One's a Y.]] Together, they fight crime!" So much that it's almost become a {{Stock Phrase|s}}. Expect lots of cultural clash humor arising both from different policing traditions and from general personal differences between the two characters. Sometimes the ante will be raised by making the crime-fighters from two groups that are actively antagonistic.
