* ''PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', in a ''very'' atypical sense. The five key characters, who in an ordinary example of the ''mahou shoujo'' genre would be a typically bickering yet loving group of true companions, instead make and break allegiances and compete for magical resources, often violently. It's later revealed that [[spoiler:they have lived across multiple timelines, in many of which they were all close friends--but it always [[KillEmAll ended badly]].]] This is driven home by the spin-off manga ''The Different Story'', specifically by its final line.

** Played straight in ''[[PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion Rebellion]]'', [[spoiler: in Homura's [[LotusEaterMachine idealized world.]]]] The girls call themselves the "Puella Magi Holy Quintet", spending carefree days going to school and hanging out with each other, while utterly [[CurbStompBattle demolishing]] Nightmares with impeccable teamwork during the night.

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'' details what happens to True Companions if supernatural stuff starts eroding their bonds of friendship; the second season details [[CrowningMomentofAwesome exactly what they're capable of]] [[ThePowerOfFriendship when it doesn't]]. Friends may help you move but True Companions help you move bodies.

* The School Festival in ''Anime/ManabiStraight'' has "from friends to true companions" as its theme. The "friends" in this case is a different Japanese word, tomodachi, which indicates a shallower level of intimacy.
