Best Friends Forever

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
Alice, Bella and Chloe are best friends, they usually hang out together but know where to draw the line. That’s not this trope.

Dina, Evelyn and Flo are best friends who do everything (aside from eating, sleeping, going on dates and going to the bathroom) together, they know the phone numbers of each other like it’s some sort of reflex action. They share favorite foods and favorite music, or their favorite foods and music complement each other nicely. When they’re separated (Separate vacations, camp, etc.) they’re on the phone with each other half the day. They always have something to talk about even if they’ve been talking for days. If one of them doesn’t want to hang out with the others, the others will freak out. This is Played for Laughs and portrayed as completely unhealthy since they are almost completely dependent on each other.

Examples:

Live-Action TV
  • Rocky and CeCe of Shake It Up in the episode ''Kick It Up, and Gunther and Tinka in every episode.

Western Animation

    Heterosexual Life Partners, two people. Best Friends Forever, two or more people, girlier and actually use the term "BFF" regularly.

    The same but called differently?

    The "Forever" part isn't really meant. It's two/three/four girls who are acting cliquish, forming bonds in middle/high school that won't last forever, but they say they will.

    Kind of like a platonic verson of Sickeningly Sweethearts?

    Yes, but with a more 'clique' feel.

    What differs this from Les Yay (or Ho Yay)?

    Sickeningly Sweethearts, but platonic. Girls acting cliquish.

    This feels very similar to Limited Social Circle, which is about exactly this -- but specifically about the main cast. Maybe this could refer to cases where it's supporting cast and it's Played For Laughs or to be disapproved of, like Katie and Sadie from Total Drama Island.

    That could work.

    I kind of agree with fourteen wings. Heterosexual Life Partners refers to a very deep bond and usually can't be confirmed as such until those involved are significantly aged to the point where it's unlikely anything could get between them for long. Best Friends Forever can be when they are much younger and the bond much more superficial or untried. It's like the difference between being happily married for years and being boyfriend and girlfriend in junior high, seems great now but how long do you really think it will last? Maybe forever, but just as likely not.

    DAN 004, How is this related to Les Yay or Ho Yay?

    Why hasn't this been launched yet? It seems a real trope without an already existing equivalent.

    I actually came here when searching BF Fs on Google after finding a dead link to that here. No idea who Ty Lee, Luna Lovegood, and Saki Hanajima are but it seems the trope would apply to them.

    (I have edited it to show that this NOT a 2 persons trope)

Three days must pass before this YKTTW is Launchworthy or Discardable
