* In the classic ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' games on Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, the playable characters consisted of Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles 'Tails' Prower, and Knuckles the Echidna, who became a Power Trio by the end of ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles''. They were the only characters to be playable in any of the side-scrolling platforming installments released in the 90's, with the exception of ''VideoGame/KnucklesChaotix''. In the ''[[VideoGame/SonicAdvanceTrilogy Sonic Advance]]'' trilogy, all three were playable again, this time alongside Amy Rose (making her playable side-scrolling platforming debut after being playable in the ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 games]]) and Cream the Rabbit (who debuted in ''Sonic Advance 2'').

** Agatha, Gil and Tarvek - a LoveTriangle, crossed with WeUsedToBeFriends for Gil and Tarvek, with all three being extremely powerful [[MadScientist Sparks]] - Zeetha and Violetta lack the mad science aspect, and lean towards being sidekicks in the more science-heavy arcs.
** Agatha, Zeetha and Violetta - BeautyBrainsAndBrawn with a twist - in Zeetha's words, ''"'''You've''' got the brains, '''I've''' got the muscle, Violetta's got the '''sneaky!'''"'' In the current story arc, they're the only three of the five to actually still be together - Gil and Tarvek are elsewhere, and occasionally [[spoiler:else''when'']].

* The Eeveelutions from ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', not counting Eevee itself from Gen II to Gen III. Interestingly enough they had Sentai like colors attached to them also. The Trio of Flareon (Red) Vaporeon (Blue) Jolteon (Yellow) plus the duo of Espeon (Pinkish Purple) and Umbreon (Black). Now they're more of a 3 + 2 + 2 with Leafeon (Green) and Glaceon (Whitish Blue). Fans anticipate that number continuing to grow until it reaches 17 in total. In Gen VI you get another addition with Sylveon (Pink).

* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' uses this trope, especially in WholeEpisodeFlashback that discusses how they met. You have two (Mal and Zoe, old friends) plus three (Wash, Jayne, and Kaylee, who join the crew). But later, they add four more (Inara, Simon, River, and Book) who aren't really part of the crew.

* In ''Literature/Worm'', the Undersiders fit this mold once [[spoiler:Taylor]] joins. She, Grue, and Tattletale not only handle most of the planning, but interact more frequently with one another in their everyday lives than Bitch or Regent do with the others or one another. This dynamic gets more complicated over time, due to [[spoiler:Taylor]] and Bitch becoming friends, and due to [[spoiler:Imp (Grue's little sister and later a romantic interest for Regent) joining the team]].
