* [[TheMcCoy Sora]] of ''KingdomHearts'' has a very large true companionship group, though the most obvious central examples are the [[TheMcCoy Sora]]-Riku-Kairi and [[TheMcCoy Sora]]-[[DonaldDuck Donald]]-{{Goofy}} trios. Also [[MickeyMouse Mickey]]-[[DonaldDuck Donald]]-{{Goofy}}, and Axel-Roxas-Xion (at least it looks that way). The most close-knit trio, though, is Terra-Aqua-Ven, who are like siblings or two parents and a child, depending on the situation.

* The four main protagonists of ''WebAnimation/BrokenSaints'' have a bond akin to this. They all immediately feel a connection because they "recognize" each other from their shared visions/dreams/nightmares. With Raimi and Oran, who spend half the series together (and [[spoiler: who are the only heroes to survive the GrandFinale]]), this enters HeterosexualLifePartner territory. Kamimura does not have as much time to bond as the two of them, but after he joins the team, the three men become a PowerTrio. Shandala only really interacts with the guys for about two chapters of time, but TheDulcineaEffect -- plus her being TheEmpath -- connects them all very quickly very fast.
* The eponymous Red and Blue teams from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' reach this point in their relationship with each other by the end of ''Revelation'', when they realize that although their units suck, they fit in better with each other than anywhere else. This isn't just among each team, either -- they're true companions with each other, too, even though they're all technically enemies. They even have welcomed [[spoiler:Wash]] into their ranks, even after all he did to them. Also applies to the makers of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', Creator/RoosterTeeth.
* ''WebAnimation/XionicMadness'':
** Omega and Askad had been true companions since before they became cyborgs, it was only ruined when Askad's cyborg-daughter based on his dead daughter starts going evil, so Askad can't decide whether to warn Omega and Xero, or protect his daughter. He decides to limit her abilities in case he dies before warning them. Omega and Xero then form an unbreakable bond escaping from Kari (Askad's daughter), the government, red and green spies, and [[spoiler: their own clones.]]
** In episode four, part two, Omega and Xero are helped by Omicron Squad, Omega's old crew from the military. They go up against a horde of zombies that have to be frozen and smashed to be defeated, simply because they would rather die alongside their former comrade than anything else. These soldiers even blow up a building being held back by Omega, so he'll be covered and protected when Kari [[spoiler: removes Askad's limiters to increase her power output and makes a big badaboom destroying everything organic within range, except Xero, cuz he's just that badass.]]
* Simon and Lewis of the ''Machinima/YogscastMinecraftSeries''. Even more evident with Old/Knight_Peculiar.

* Most of the relationships in ''SomethingPositive'' have something of this, especially the original core of friends Davan, Aubrey, [=PeeJee=] and Jason. Davan was described by the author as being often difficult to get on with and you might wonder why you bother, but he ''will'' be there if needed.
* The adolescent cast of ''RubysWorld'' functions like this, and the characters' relationships to each other are among the only things of value in a universe of BlackAndGreyMorality.
* Dejoru of ''{{Juathuur}}'' tried to inspire a sense of family in his original team, but it didn't work out. He tries in his second team too [[spoiler: and fails. By the time we meet him again, he has lost his faith on group cohesion.]]

The core of the Dimwit Squad is two power trios: Tiny Gay Laura ("Cupcake"), Tall Gay Danny ("Xena"), and Broody Gay Carmilla ("Carm") make up the first, and the second is the LaFerry Family (LaFontaine, Perry, and JP).

* ScrewAttack.com are this, to the point that they have been referred to as the ScrewAttack Family. Not just the people behind the website, but the community as well (to the point of a BrokenFanbase). Insult so much as one member of the SA crew, and the community ''will'' respond in kind, as will the other members of the SA crew; and this goes even further if you badmouth the team's only female member.
* The team at Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses/Channel Awesome - They've had three anniversary crossovers where they all met up to provide something for the fans, numerous members of the team frequently have appearances in other's videos, and behind the scenes footage would ascertain that they've become friends away from the cameras. They also tend to move with lightning speed to defend each other should anyone be so foolish as to submit nasty/trollish remarks in comments on the site, on Twitter, or anywhere else on the internet.

* The four main protagonists of ''BrokenSaints'' have a bond akin to this. They all immediately feel a connection because they "recognize" each other from their shared visions/dreams/nightmares. With Raimi and Oran, who spend half the series together (and [[spoiler: who are the only heroes to survive the GrandFinale]]), this enters HeterosexualLifePartner territory. Kamimura does not have as much time to bond as the two of them, but after he joins the team, the three men become a PowerTrio. Shandala only really interacts with the guys for about two chapters of time, but TheDulcineaEffect -- plus her being TheEmpath -- connects them all very quickly very fast.

At one point, when you've amassed many followers and generals, Ayara runs off, believing that you don't need her anymore, and you have to track her down and convince her that she's important too. And then there are Daniel's friends since childhood, Angel and Jovian - much of Daniel's grief stems from his fear that Jovian betrayed him due to their conflicting ideals. [[spoiler: He didn't. Jovian would never betray him. Ever.]]

* {{Rush}}, the progressive rock band from Canada, is very obviously a band of three best friends. Bassist/vocalist/keyboardist Geddy and guitarist Alex have known each other and been HeterosexualLifePartners since they were in middle school, and like with GreenDay, the drummer and lyricist Neil was pretty quick to mesh with his bandmates after the first drummer, John Rutsey, left for health reasons (he was a diabetic). The three of them have been brothers to each other since 1975.
