* In the manga ''Manga/{{Vagabond}}'', the Yoshioka school of swordsmanship as a whole are essentially an independent samurai clan that, whatever their feelings about eponymous head and playboy layabout Yoshioka Seijuurou, are extremely devoted to his younger brother Denshichirou to the point that disciple Otagurou Hyousuke offers his arm (shattered in a training accident) as a "sacrifice" with which Denshichirou may proceed with his training, they accept senior disciple Ueda Ryouhei [[spoiler:as their leader, perhaps even the "soul" of the Yoshioka all along, after MiyamotoMusashi cuts down the two brothers]]. Unfortunately this is the undoing of both themselves and the school, as [[spoiler: Ueda's able to get all seventy remaining swordsmen except for the crippled Hyousuke to join in his plan to ambush and kill Musashi at Ichijouji, but [[WhatAnIdiot the plan isn't changed even when the leaders know that Musashi's found out]]. On the individual, tactical and leadership levels they have not prepared to fight in what's "no longer a duel," and except for the absent Otagurou ''all'' of them pay for this failure with their lives, ending the Yoshioka school]].

* The Cyber Coil Detective Agency along with Daichi and Denpa make one big group of "true companions" in ''Anime/DennouCoil''. There are also a few smaller circles such as Tamako, Haraken and Yasako, but the most notable is Yasako and Isako, who come to have their own special ''true companion'' relationship.

This is also depressingly deconstructed by the show's end. Fumie for instance, in spite of all they went through together, drops the quest by episode 16, and doesn't regain any significance in the plot. She's JustAKid, and while they're still good friends, it's asking a lot out of an eleven-year-old girl to go on potentially dangerous missions. And for all of Yasako and Isako's RomanticTwoGirlFriendship moments, [[NoRomanticResolution any progress is put on hold]], as Isako goes out to find her own path in life. It doesn't mean they couldn't reconnect later down the road, but it's firmly ambiguous how much of their bond will stick.

* There's a few groups in ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' that sometimes duke it out but sometimes overlap: The Yorozuya ([[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Gintoki]], [[OnlySaneMan Shinpachi]], [[CuteBruiser Kagura]] and [[BigFriendlyDog Sadaharu]]), The Shinsengumi ([[StalkerWithACrush Kondou]], [[{{Seppuku}} Hijikata]], [[BadAss Okita]], [[ButtMonkey Yamazaki]], etc.,) and the sort of disbanded Joui ([[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Gintoki]], [[AccidentalMisnaming Katsura]], [[KnightOfCerebus Takasugi]] and [[NoblewomansLaugh Sakamoto]]). However, by the end of the Benizakura Arc, it is pretty clear that whatever ties and sense of camarederie that [[spoiler:Takasugi has had with Gintoki and Katsura]] in the past have been completely broken, with both [[spoiler:Gintoki and Katsura]] declaring war on [[spoiler:Takasugi]] for his actions.

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', the [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits Braves]], for all their quirks and TeethClenchedTeamwork, are ultimately just a very [[DysfunctionalFamily dysfunctional]] [[FamilyOfChoice found family]] who really do care beneath it all.



* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', Emilio tries to convince the [[LaResistance Ignauts]] to help him kill the king. They laugh in his face because his plan is [[RevengeBeforeReason irrational]] and their aim is to peacefully depose the king, but Shun intervenes, asking for a chance for Emilio to prove himself, to which [[RebelLeader Demetrio]] concedes, letting the two follow along but without any promises. 10 episodes later, [[SpannerInTheWorks circumstances]] force Emilio to give up his goal and realizes he's [[NecessaryFail been an idiot]] and he begins the [[TheAtoner atonement process]] by asking to join the Ignauts along with Shun. Demetrio tells them they'd [[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming long since considered them members of the team]].
