** In a lesser extent, the Company of Thorin Oakenshield from ''Film/TheHobbit'', where you can't always tell by them squabbling among themselves but loyalty is more or less the same. It helps that many of the members are actually related to Thorin by blood. Much of Bilbo's story is him being accept by the Dwarves to the point that he's willing to do anything he can to save them, even if it means [[spoiler:stealing the Arkenstone to broker peace with the Elves and Men and inviting the surviving members back to Bag End for visits after everything was over.]]

* In the original ''Film/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 ''Film/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).
** Wedge is considered part of the true companions as far as the other characters are concerned, partly because he's one of the few left alive from the beginning. The problem is that he's the HeroOfAnotherStory, so doesn't get to hang out with the rest as much.
** One of the (many) complaints about [[Film/ThePhantomMenace the]] [[Film/AttackOfTheClones prequel]] [[Film/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.
** Consider also that this may be why the main characters fail to come together and defeat Palpatine. Teamwork, people!

* TheFastAndTheFurious team is this and is also one big happy surrogate family. It shows the most from ''Fast Five'' onward, but the bond is there even in the earlier films. Dominic Toretto is the biggest example of this, with his mantra of "You don't turn your back on family, even when they do."

* TheLordOfTheRings
** [[BandOfBrothers The Fellowship of the Ring]] from ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' definitely qualifies. Many of the members [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits don't even know each other at first]], but they become FireForgedFriends and [[IOweYouMyLife risk their lives]] for each other repeatedly. When they're forced to [[LetsSplitUpGang separate]], they still remain close and have a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming at the end of the movie when they [[BackFromTheDead all meet up again]].

* 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.
