* In ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', Eggsy and Roxy, the only two candidates who demonstrate loyalty and compassion, quickly bond and look out for one another. Unusually for a film of this type, their relationship is completely devoid of sexual tension.

* Sure, they're rude, crude, and somewhat morally grey, but the Deltas from ''AnimalHouse'' are definitely this. "They can't do that to our pledges! Only ''we'' can do that to our pledges!"
* ''{{Film/Thor}}'': Thor, Sif, and the Warriors Three are a pretty tight-knit group after adventuring and fighting together for thousands of years. Later on in the movie, Sif, Fandral, Hogun, and Volstagg risk everything to retrieve Thor from exile and are ecstatic when they're eventually reunited with him.

* In ''Film/TheAvengers2012'', at first the superheroes have significant differences, but Nick Fury (leader of SHIELD) deliberately tried to invoke this to bring them together in a time of need. It was a huge risk for him and his career. By the end [[spoiler:he succeeds]].
** Similarly ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' revolved around a motley crew of criminals who eventually put aside their differences and end up saving the galaxy through ThePowerOfFriendship [[spoiler: literally]].

* In ''The Maltese Falcon''. If you're a detective, it doesn't matter that you hated your partner and were sleeping with his wife -- he's your partner, and if he's killed you have to do something about it.

* Danny Ocean's band in ''Ocean's Eleven'', [[{{Oceans 11}} original]], [[OceansEleven remake]] and sequels. Especially notable in ''Ocean's 13'' where in the beginning much of the team wants to drug, kill, and bury the villainous casino owner who betrayed their friend and caused him to go into shock.

* ''{{Rebel Without a Cause}}'', with Jim, Judy, and Plato.
* ''{{RENT}}'' has this when the seven friends band together in the wake of Benny's FaceHeelTurn, as well as the fact that half of them are HIV-positive. Even Joanne, an Ivy League lawyer who was only there because she was dating Maureen, gradually joined the gang and stuck around after the couple's breakup [[spoiler: before Angel's death brought them back together.]]

* In ''SisterhoodOfTheTravelingPants Carmen narrates saying, "Together, it was as if we formed one single, complete person."
* The cast of ''{{Sneakers}}'' appears, at the outset, to be employees at a small security firm, but when it comes time to circle the wagons, they work together like only true companions could.

* TheSpecials is all about this. It's a super-hero film set ''in between'' big disasters. During downtime for the Specials, when the big dramatic conflict is that a new member is joining, an old member is leaving to join a different team against their wishes, and a lot of the team-mates personal relationships are being reinterpreted.

--> '''Fandral:''' It's treason.
--> '''Volstagg:''' To hell with treason, it's suicide.
--> '''[[ChildhoodFriendRomance Sif:]]''' He would do the same for us.

* ''Film/BackToTheFuture'': [[RidiculouslyAverageGuy Marty]] [[OnlySaneMan McFly]] and [[BunnyEarsLawyer Doc]] [[ReluctantMadScientist Brown]] have a [[OddFriendship very strange]] but very strong bond. They are separated by interests and [[IntergenerationalFriendship age]], but they would [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifice themselves]] for each other without a second thought.

* In the original ''StarWars'' trilogy the core cast of [[KnightInSourArmor Han Solo]], [[TheHero Luke Skywalker]], [[BadassPrincess Princess Leia]], [[TheBigGuy Chewbacca]], [[PluckyComicRelief R2-D2, and C-3PO]]. Over the course of three films they risk their lives, endure torture and hardship, and make tremendous sacrifices for each other. Even the droids are treated like people instead of property, both of them being repaired after sustaining damage that most people would just consider an excuse to buy a new droid.
** By ''ReturnOfTheJedi'' [[BlackBestFriend Lando Calrissian]] appears to be on his way to joining (he clearly views [[TheLancer Han]] and Chewie this way, but it's less certain how he feels about the others and how they feel about him), along with possibly Wedge Antilles (moreso in the books than the movies, but the last scene of ''ROTJ'' shows him as part of the group).

** One of the (many) complaints about [[ThePhantomMenace the]] [[AttackOfTheClones prequel]] [[RevengeOfTheSith trilogy]] was that, in contrast to the original films, the main characters, in general, came across more as a group of people with similar goals than friends and family that cared about each other.
