''Team Buddies'' is a 2000 video game made for the PlayStation by Creator/{{Psygnosis}}, a cross between RTS-style gameplay and third-person RPG. The main gameplay element is the collecting, stacking, and destroying of crates. Each team starts out at its base, has to run to the crate drop area, pick up a crate, run back and deposit it on its 2×2×2 stacking pad. Rinse, lather, and repeat. Different weapons, vehicles and team members are created through differing combinations of crates on different levels. For example, in the first world, you get your basic soldier (Infantry) and Commando.

* MightyGlacier: {{Cyborg}} Buddies. They can have the highest health of any Buddy in the game (alongside Super Buddies), and their standard punches hit so hard that they can wreck tanks with their bare hands and can't be squashed by them, either. They also take less damage from weapons, resist fire better, and are completely immune to lava. Their one flaw is that they're the slowest Buddy type in the game, so it can be a problem when trying to retreat from a swarm of enemies.

* BearsAreBadNews: Grizzly Bears in the Droopy Wood levels & Polar Bears in Chilling Fields levels. They have a lot of health to [[{{Pun}} bear]] with, and letting them attack you might even make them stun you due to the insane amount of damage they can dish out in a small amount of time.



* CampGay: The Medic Buddies in Single Player give off this vibe in the American version, due to them speaking with a slight lisp.

** It's also not a good idea to have them follow you in places with lava, as they hardly make an effort to bypass it safely if they can.
