->''"So the basic idea is to gang up on the character and beat the living daylights out of him, huh?"''
-->-- '''Laharl''', ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'', putting it in layman's terms

A SpecialAttack that consists of two or more characters working as a team attacking at the same time or in rapid succession. If they both have some sort of super power they may even combine their powers to create a new move with the properties of both.

These are often extremely powerful, and [[RuleOfCool rather impressive to watch]], especially in video games where they may be considered a form of {{Limit Break}}.

Often used to finish off the BigBad during a {{Crossover}} to give both sides the spotlight. Also frequently overlaps with CombinedEnergyAttack.

May involve PowerOfFriendship, PowerOfLove and TrueCompanions when used as a plot device.

Not to be confused with {{Combo}} attacks, or [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combos Combo]] attacks.


!!Videogame Examples:

[[folder:Action Adventure]]
* In ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil'', Jade and Pey'j can execute a combo attack wherein Pey'j stomps the ground, propelling nearby enemies into the air, where Jade can hit them and send them flying into other enemies.
* ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin''
** There are two playable/switchable characters, and instead of the usual item crash, they combine their power and have tons of joint attacks. [[spoiler:Their strongest combo [[GondorCallsForAid summons the spirit of]] [[NoKillLikeOverkill ''all'' Belmonts from previous games]] for one devastating screen-clearing attack.]]
** Loretta can create a giant ice sword for Stella to swing. [[spoiler:Dracula can immolate a wave of Death's sickles, or turn him into a giant scythe and swing him to create a giant explosion.]]
* Technically, all combos involving the magical attack in ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia2008'' are this, since Elika is the one executing the magical strikes while the Prince performs the other three attack types.

[[folder:Beat Em Up]]
* ''VideoGame/TheBouncer'' has trinity attacks, where the three fighters team up to perform an attack. This can seriously backfire against Dauragon, however. Not to mention that exactly when you can use it is completely up to your AI controlled partners and despite doing large amounts of damage, it can never finish off an enemy, making it at most an overelaborate HpToOne attack.
* Both, the arcade and NES versions of ''VideoGame/DoubleDragon III'', featured a couple of team-up moves that could be performed by two players: the triangle jump kick (in which one player is thrown by his partner while doing a jump kick) and the back-to-back hurricane kick (in which both players perform the hurricane kick at the same time). In the arcade version, the moves could be done by any combination of characters, but in the NES version they could only be done if both players were controlling Billy and Jimmy.
* ''VideoGame/GoldenAxe Revenge of Death Adder'' has this in two and four person varieties. Players attacking a stunned enemy while standing on opposite sides will [[WrestlerInAllOfUs grab the enemy and perform a piledriver]]. Four players make it a SpinningPiledriver instead. Instant kill on any mook and deals obscene damage to bosses, especially considering how easy it is to perform.
** ''Golden Axe 3'' gives a unique special attack to each possible pair of characters, as well as a more powerful spell for each character when cast with the other player's help.
* ''VideoGame/TheSimpsons'' arcade game by Konami allows two players to perform special attacks which vary depending on which members of the Simpson clan is being controlled (up to six teams attacks were available).
* [[DualBoss Mona and Lisa]] in ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRage 3'' does this. One of them is given a leap up by the other to attack the player.
** Throwing your partner in the first game causes them to perform a powerful jumping attack instead of doing damage to them. While the feature was absent in the sequel, it returned in the 3rd game.
* ''VideoGame/UrbanReign'' for the [=PS2=] features these extensively as every single character(even the lowest of mooks) has several. Just grab an enemy when a friend's close by, or hold your target still and let your buddy walk up to you and a team attack will trigger.

[[folder:Fighting Game]]
* Almost any team-based FightingGame (''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'', ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'') will allow the fighters on the sidelines to jump in for an assist or, in some cases, a simultaneous firing of LimitBreak {{Combos}}.
* The ''Bleach'' [[UsefulNotes/NintendoDS DS]] fighters have only one of these when Kyoraku and Ukitake are in a team. It's not foolproof, but is respectably destructive.
* Several characters' ultimate attacks in ''VideoGame/DragonBallZBudokai 3'' (and some of the more recent games, too) involve another character showing up to join in the attack. The Data Cardass Arcade games (Built on the Budokai 3 engine, released only in Japan) even had a system specifically devoted to being able to combine two character's ultimate attacks into one combination attack.
* ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' games have these when playing in team mode. Most characters get unique attacks when switching out to certain partners. May or may not be more powerful than their normal switch-out beatdown.
* Basically, the entire reason the Assist system was implemented in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' is to allow for unique combos that would ordinarily be impossible.
* ''Naruto'' games:
** ''VideoGame/NarutoUltimateNinja 3'' (''Narutimate Hero 3'' in Japan) has three Combination Ultimate Jutsu that are like this. Ultimate Lotus of Love and Youth for Rock Lee and Might Guy, Eternal Rivals for Kakashi and Might Guy and Combo Rasengan for Naruto and Jiraiya. Each attack can be executed by either character in battle, and both characters perform the attack together.
** The ''Ninja Storm'' series of games introduced plenty of these, for both the heroes and villains, in ''[[VideoGame/NarutoShippudenUltimateNinjaStormRevolution Revolution]]''. Some of them involve three characters at once (Team 7, the Sand Siblings, etc).
* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''
** Some character's [[LimitBreak Final Smashes]] have them dishing out pain with multiple characters. In ''Brawl'', [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Pokémon Trainer's]] Triple Finish has him summoning his three Pokémon to launch a massive combination of elemental attacks; and in ''3DS/Wii U'', [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Robin]] teams up with Chrom for an aerial beatdown, referencing ''Awakening's'' Pair-Up mechanic, while [[VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}} Shulk]] lays the smackdown with Dunban and Riki in reference to ''Xenoblade's'' Chain Attacks.
** {{Final Boss}}es Master Hand and Crazy Hand have a number of attacks they can perform together when both are out. ''Melee'' and ''Brawl'' have more "basic" attacks like fist-bumps and claps, and ''3DS/Wii U'' adds things like flicking giant orbs at each other.
%%** Removing the "friendly fire" option in Team Smashes can have some interesting results, such as the [[GoodBadBug Glitch-created]] [[FastballSpecial Mr.Game & Watch Ness blast attack.]]
%% Should be more descriptive of what exactly these techniques are. Articles are meant to be understandable for those unfamiliar.
* The ''VideoGame/RivalSchools'' series is unique among {{Fighting Game}}s, in that teams consisting purely of members of the same school can launch a school-specific Combination Attack using the entire team. Characters from the game retain this trend in crossovers; Kyosuke has a super combo with his school partners in ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium Capcom vs. SNK 2]]'', and Batsu has a team super combo based on his partner's specialty in ''VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom''.
* Teaming Ryu and Ken in ''X-Men vs. Street Fighter'' or ''Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter'' would allow them to do a Double [[KamehameHadoken Shinku Hadoken]]. ThePowerOfFriendship at its finest, especially since Ken has never had a giant beam or fireball as a Super Combo.
* Another example would be ''Ultimate Muscle: Legends VS New Generation'',the crossover game between ''Manga/{{Kinnikuman}}'' and ''Anime/UltimateMuscle'' in which any tagteam has a combination attack. Including the ones that were actually included in the anime, such as Muscle Docking and the Longhorn train.
* ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Tag Tournament'' had a few specials like this as well. Get fellow luchas King II and Armour King on a tag team, have King do an Irish Whip, and Armour King can come up to powerslam the victim while King buggers off for a beer. Paul and Law in particular have an intricate double tag combo requiring well-timed button presses.
** The second ''Tag Tournament'' introduces Tag Assaults, which are Bound combos that cause your partner to run onscreen and perform a short string before control returns to your main fighter. Balcony crashes also require both characters (you blast your opponent through the break point while your partner catches them with a combo below).
* In ''VideoGame/StreetFighterEX 3'', certain characters had team finishers that could only be done in certain situations with certain characters on a team that [[GuideDangIt weren't hinted at in game]].
* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken'' has a number of ways your characters can join forces to do damage, ranging from Cross Rushes ([[LauncherMove launch combos]] that swap partners), Cross Arts (the purest use of the trope, where one character performs a super move then tosses the hapless opponent to their partner, who proceeds to execute their own), or Cross Assaults (a short period where both characters appear onscreen and are controllable to launch a simultaneous barrage against the lone opponent).
* In ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha 3'', when Juni and Juli are fighting the together, they gain the ability to perform two additional Super Combos that they don't get to use individually: the Psycho Roll and Death Cross Dance.
* In ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfSuperHeroes'', Hulk and Zangief get one where they grab an opponent and double pile drive them.
* In ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', one of Triborg's Fatalities entails him splitting into three cyborgs. Cyrax slashes the victim's throat, Smoke plucks out their heart, then both hold the victim in the air while Sektor uppercuts their body in half and takes their head.

[[folder:Hack And Slash]]
* ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriorsGundam'' has kind of fake variants. They are called Combo Attacks but are essentially each character's own special attack with a more or less slight powerup.
** Which is an understatement in some cases. [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Strike Freedom]], for example, goes from using its BFG in a stationary BeamSpam attack (which is good for single units, like rival Gundams) to making a series of short, controllable dashes, hacking away with its LaserSword, firing off all of its [[AttackDrone DRAGOON]] units as it goes (naturally, this is great for tearing apart packs of Mooks like tinfoil).
*** More specifically, every Class 3 Mobile Suit has two different special attacks: One it used normally, and one it used as part of a Combo Attack. A certain skill that switched these made some Mobile Suits into {{Game Breaker}}s (Like the [[Anime/TurnAGundam Turn A]], whose Combo Attack was to lob a nuke).
*** Every game in the [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriors War]][[VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors rio]][[VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi rs]] franchise has this as well which comes from 2 player Musou attacks. A rather famous example is the Triple Musou in ''VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi'', which includes a three person musou attack that can be performed by any character combinations, and special triple musou with three specific characters such as the one between Sun Jian, Cao Cao, and Liu Bei, also known as the [[FanNickname Sexyback.]]

[[folder:Mecha Game]]
* Many games in the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' have a number of attacks that are available only when certain teammates (in certain mecha) are together when the attack is made, particularly if they're from the same series and are close friends. Famous attacks include the [[BattleCouple Rampage Ghost, Twin Bird Strike,]] [[BashBrothers Tatsumaki]] [[HeterosexualLifePartners Zankantou,]] [[{{Moe}} Royal Heart Breaker,]] [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Double Gekigan Flare,]] and [[Creator/GoNagai Final Dynamic]] [[Manga/GetterRobo Special]].
** The series also eliminates the [[AwesomeButImpractical common complaint]] about Combination Attacks by letting the participants activate it individually. So even if the two attacks individually do more damage combined than the Combination, you can do the Combination ''twice'' and still come out ahead. This is particularly [[GameBreaker exploitable]] in the ''Original Generation'' games with the SRX team, a CombiningMecha composed of three robots who also have a separate Combination Attack: You can separate the SRX, do the Combination Attack twice, then recombine and perform the SRX's ''own'' absurdly powerful WaveMotionGun Combination Attack with a fourth mecha, all in one turn.[[note]]In SRWOG 2, where the SRX and R-Gun Powered combination attack is available, combination attacks ''ignore barriers.'' This includes the final boss.[[/note]]
** ''VideoGame/EndlessFrontier'' has Reiji's and Xiaomu's Frontier MAX attack be a combination attack. In ''EXCEED'', Aredy can start combinations with the Arkuon, Neige with the Fey-Clyde, Haken with the Gespenst Phantom, Reiji with Xiaomu, and Reiji again with both Xiaomu and Saya (but Xiaomu now has her own personal Frontier MAX as well). Meanwhile, Axel Almer and Alfimi count as a single unit, so all their attacks are in unison.
** Interestingly, a lot of these combo attacks are done ''in canon'', but plenty of them are changed due to RuleOfCool. Example: The original Final Dynamic Special involved Getter G, Grendizer, Great Mazinger ''and Double Spazer''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfEIAKpJP14 All games using Grendizer toss Double Spazer out for Mazinger Z]]. And depending on the canon, Mazinkaiser replaces Z and Shin Getter replaces G and Grendizer won't even show up at all!
*** To note, the Mazinger units usually has the most amount of Combination Attack in the games they were in. Tetsuya is actually the current title holder for having the most amount of combination attacks in the franchise history.
** ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsNEO'' gives the Eldoran series units the Eldora Special
** That's retained in OE, but more interestingly was inspired by a combination in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGC'' involving Braiger, Baxanger, and Sasurauger known as the J9 Special.
** And ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}2: Hakai-hen'' adds the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLGWRs-clFU Invincible Special]], a team-up of Creator/{{Sunrise}}'s three "Invincible" robots (Daitarn 3, Zambot 3, Trider G7). ''Saisei-Hen'' gives us the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NK-Pi3IO8tk Dankuu Souga Ken]], which is like the X-Strike but with the two Dancougar. ''Tengoku-hen'' has Aquarion LOVE, which is a Double Mugen Punch that ends with both Aquarions' punching arms turning into a heart.
** ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsBX''
*** "Dynamic Combination" between [[Anime/ShinMazinger Mazinger Z]] and Mazinkaiser SKL: the latter mounts the former's "[[RocketPunch Big Bang Punch]]" and follows it up with a point blank "Thor Hammer Breaker", ending with a full-powered collision between "[[EyeBeams Koushiryoku Beam]]" and "Inferno Blaster".
*** "Triple Generation" between [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE all three of the Asuno family]]; [[spoiler:Asemu also has "Memory of Eden" with [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE Zeheart Galette]]]].
*** In a first for ''Nadesico'', [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Akito Tenkawa]] can use the "Double Gekigan Flare" with [[spoiler:[[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Nagare Akatsuki]]]] rather than [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Gai Daigoji]].
*** "[[Anime/{{Gekiganger 3}} Double Gekigan Fire]]" is a recreation of the "Double Burning Fire", right down to the poses and firing their Chest Blasters at their foes.
** It's worth noting beforehand that, if one chooses not to sortie all the necessary units in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsX'', a combination attack can still be used. It ends up looking similar to the "summon attacks" used in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ Tengoku-hen]]'', complete with them being noticeably weaker than normal combination attacks.
*** The [[Anime/BuddyComplex Coupling Modes for Luxon and Bradyon]] are represented as this. [[spoiler:In contrast, [[MidSeasonUpgrade Bradyon Next]] can activate a similar state alone for an attack, due to the development of the Stand Alone Mode.]]
*** "Joint Dragon Fire" appears after being notably absent from ''[[Anime/TheBraveExpressMightGaine Might Gaine]]'''s debut in ''V'', [[spoiler:only here, Black Might Gaine is added in!]]
*** What many considered the best part of [=PV2=]: [[spoiler:"Mazin Soukougeki" between Koji in Mazinkaiser and Tetsuya in Mazin Emperor G. Bonus points for being used on Mazinger Zero.]]
* Starting from the second game, the ''VideoGame/AnotherCenturysEpisode'' series has combination attacks when you sortie with at least one wingman. Certain pairings of characters have special combos, ranging from the obvious ([[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Double Gekigan Flare!]]) to the ludicrous ([[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Wing Zero Custom]] + [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam X]] or [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Freedom and Justice with METEORs]] = [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill record pain]]).
** The third game has ''Shin Getter Robo'', which is actually 3 mechs in 1. It can perform a unique combination attack if you sortie alone.
* ''VideoGame/SDGundamGGeneration'' doesn't tend to include combination attacks, but they pop up on occasion (for example, [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Chaos, Gaia, and Abyss]] get one in ''Wars''). The most famous example from ''G Gen'' isn't even playable; a CutScene in ''Neo'' shows the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Wing Team]] attempt an attack on [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Master Asia]] -- which fails primarily because it's [[OldMaster Master]] [[BadassGrandpa freaking]] [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Asia]].

* The Kong Pow from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryTropicalFreeze''. Collecting bananas gradually fills a gauge on the HUD that, when full, allows the Kongs to transform all onscreen enemies into extra lives, recovery hearts, or Banana Coins. It takes two characters to pull off the move, though, so Donkey Kong is out of luck if he's by himself.
* In ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'', if there are multiple players, they can do a screen-wiping combination attack by simultaneously hitting the ground with a GroundPound.
* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog4: Episode II'' has a stronger version of the [[RollingAttack Spin Dash]] done by Sonic and Tails simultaneously.
** ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' featured "Team Blast" attacks for each team.
** ''VideoGame/SonicForces'' has the Double Boost, an even faster boost move performed by Sonic and the Avatar. [[spoiler: There's also the Triple Boost, a move used by Modern Sonic, Classic Sonic, and the Avatar to finish off the FinalBoss.]]

[[folder:Real Time Strategy]]
* ''VideoGame/EndWar'' on the DS has a gameplay mechanic somewhat similiar to this, attacks made against a unit that is surrounded by enemies get a significant boost even if those other units aren't attacking it.
* Though not technically an intended instance of this trope, hero spells from the {{RTS}} game ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' may be cast simultaneously for a much greater effect. This trope appears primarily in multiplayer environment, where many of these moves became cookie cutter with their repeated use, and are the driving force behind some of the strategies and counter-strategies, often falling into a category of the dreaded {{game breaker}}.
** - Tauren Chieftain's Shockwave + Farseer's Chain Lightning, = Chainwave
** - Death Knight's Death Coil + Lich's Frost Nova = Coil Nova
** In ''VideoGame/DefenseOfTheAncients'', a popular custom map for ''Warcraft III'', the gameplay revolves mostly around proper timing and aim of multiple hero skills.
* In ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'' the player's avatar (either Eddie Riggs, Dark Ophelia, or Emperor Doviculus) can do double team attacks with any friendly unit during stage battles.

[[folder:Role Playing Game]]
* ''VideoGame/ArTonelicoIIMelodyOfMetafalica'' has the Reyvatiels able to use Synchronity Chains after getting into sync through use of Psyche attacks, and the securing of the knowledge of the Combo Magic. While just triggering the chain without a song that evolves to Combo Magic is still good (A very much extended Attack Phase), the Combo Magic can get scary powerful when amped up with Replakia and high Burst...
* ''VideoGame/ArcRiseFantasia'' lets you sync together Magic spells cast by multiple characters on the same target for amplified effects. Also, you can pull off Excel Trinities (arguably the main engine for pumping out damage later in the game) by having your 3 characters do an Excel Act at once on an opponent.
* In ''VideoGame/BraveFrontier'', when two or more units hit the same enemy at the same time, they create a Spark that deals more damage.
* ''VideoGame/BraveStory: New Traveler'' lets you learn new combination techniques [[ThePowerOfFriendship the more you fight alongside certain party members]]. As long as both (or all three) characters are able to fight and have sufficient [[CallAHitPointASmeerp SP]], you can use the combo technique more than once per turn.
* ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'' also had a combo system where casting any two compatible skills (or spells) sequentially caused their effects to combine, resulting in additional hits/damage, or entirely new, mixed-element spells. Some of the game's Masters specifically request combos exceeding a certain amount of damage or number of hits.
* ''VideoGame/TheBureauXCOMDeclassified'' had the cross-class skill combinations. For instance, [[PlayerCharacter Carter]] could use use his powers to lift an unshielded enemy, allowing for the sniper rifle-equipped Scout to perform an OneHitKill on them.
* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' was one of the first games to use combination attacks, allowing two or even all three party members to unleash devastating special moves - {{Elemental Punch}}es, [[YinYangBomb Yin-Yang Bombs]], and more. It even works some characterization into this system, in that your surly and aloof TokenEvilTeammate doesn't have any Dual Techs, and can only perform Triple Techs if you seek out and equip certain items.
** Its sequel ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' also has Dual or Triple Techs, but these are very few in number (even more so given the game's LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters), and not really worth the effort given the character combinations required to pull them off and the fact that each can be used exactly ''once'' per combat. That said, Serge and Glenn's incarnation of X-Strike remains pretty damn effective, especially after each has gotten his InfinityPlusOneSword (or in Glenn's case, [[DualWielding swords]]).
* ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' (and its sequel) has a Combo System, which merely requires that the characters you're using each has a particular skill equipped - then the combo appears in a separate menu. Many of the comboes are simply more powerful attacks that you'd be able to use singularly at a later date - others are unique attacks and spells which cannot be found in any other way. As a whole, they're [[UselessUsefulSpell only really useful early in the game]], however...
* In the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' series:
** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' has spell combos, such when two force fields result in an explosion centered on target. While the spells can be cast by the same character in succession, it is more efficient if fired by two mages. The most common example is probably Shattering, where one mage freezes the target with Petrify or Cone of Cold, then another uses Stone Fist, Crushing Prison, or a CriticalHit to insta-kill it.
** The [[http://dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/Cross-class_combo cross-class combos]] in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' allow [[FighterMageThief each class]] to inflict a unique status effect on any enemy, which can only be exploited by the other two classes. The party AI can then be configured to do so at any opportunity.
* ''VideoGame/DragonQuestSwords'': lets you spend your Master Stroke counter and some of your companion's MP into these.Although they don't cause nearly as much damage as some slightly more advanced Master Strokes.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChronicles'' allowed characters to cast spells on the same target to form new ones, like Fire and Life spells combining to make Holy. The spells can become even stronger with proper timing, but really strong ones like Firaga+2 require all 4 players to cast their spells with about a second delay between each other. [[AwesomeButImpractical make sure the enemy isn't like, trying to attack you while you set this one up.]]
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'', putting [[BlackMagic black mage]] Vivi and BigGuy Steiner in the party together allows them to perform "Magic Sword" techniques, where one of Vivi's spells is channeled through Steiner's physical beatings.
** And of course, the whole concept of combination attacks in FF series started with Palom and Porom of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'', who could cast powerful unique spells with their Twin(cast) ability. The DS versions allows you to give the Twincast command to other characters as well, resulting in several new unique spells, including the fan favourite Ultima (which is produced by twincasting with Cecil and Rosa) that eventually [[ThePowerOfLove outdamages everything else in the game]] once you remove the damage {{cap}}. The sequel, ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears Final Fantasy IV: The After Years]]'', adds Band Abilities that allows party members to partner together for certain attacks. While most character pairs only have a single Band attack between them, thanks to LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters and the fact that the parties consist of up to 5 characters, the grand total greatly exceeds even that of'' Chrono Trigger'''s. It also averts the common problem of attacks ending up doing less damage than its component parts by having some of the stronger ones break the damage cap and for the ones that don't, an accessory can take care of it.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' has Skillchains, which result from properly timed and executed [[LimitBreak Weapon Skills]] in succession, which gives an extra bit of elemental damage. Mages can then correctly time a spell and Magic Burst the target, which doesn't have a separate animation but does significantly boost the damage of the spell. Unfortunately, with various changes over the past few years, many don't bother with either of these nowadays.
* ''VideoGames/GuildWars2'' has some abilities that when used create a combo field that remains on the field for a short period. If another character uses a skill that counts as a finisher and the attack passes through the combo field a secondary effect is created. The effect depends on [[ElementalPowers elemental type]] of the field and the attack type (blast, leap, projectile or whirl) of the finisher.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Growlanser}}'' III and IV, in order to cast higher level spells, two party members have to cast low level spells to form cooperative magic.
* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' absolutely ''loves'' these. There is a combination attack for every party member and several summons. Donald and Goofy get two each, plus a ''triple'' Combination Attack that is one of the strongest ones in the game.
** In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', there's the Dimensional-Link, which lets you invoke the powers of characters such as [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Zack]], [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stitch]], Mickey and strangely enough, Maleficent.
*** It also has traditional {{Combination Attack}}s when you're fighting together with other characters, but since all such occurences are plot-dictated and non-repeatable, it's easy to miss them.
** ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance'' has a huge number of these in the form of the Link Attacks Sora can perform with his Dream Eater allies, using either one or both of them. Riku instead does a FusionDance with his Dream Eaters and powers up a SpellBlade type attack. In a possible ''Chrono Trigger'' shout-out, the three frog Dream Eaters ([[Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog A Prince, a Chef]] and a Knight) have the Decussation Link Attack. Called Unison Cross in Japanese, "Decussation" is the act of crossing in an X pattern, and the attack is basically a multi hit version of X-Strike.
* The ''VideoGame/KisekiSeries'' has them with the Chain Crafts in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky Second Chapter and The Third'', the Combo Crafts in ''VideoGame/ZeroNoKiseki and Ao No Kiseki'' and the Tactical Link System in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel I and II'' although the last one is more of a character hitting the enemy and if the enemy is inflicted with a CriticalHit or is weak from a certain weapon type, then a follow-up attack occurs. The true CombinationAttack of ''Cold Steel'' is when [[spoiler:both TheHero Rean and TheRival Crow use "Union Slash - Deadly Domination" against [[ClimaxBoss Vermillion Apocalypse]] in their respective HumongousMecha.]]
* [[VideoGame/LegendOfLegaia Legaia II: Duel Saga]] has "Variable Arts", where one character must perform an intro attack, and another must perform an ending. Variable Arts (in general) are the second most powerful type of Art, the first being [[DesperationAttack Mystic Arts]].
* This is pretty much the gist of VideoGame/ManaKhemia's Variable Strike. "Everyone, please!"
** The sequel expands this with unison strikes, in which one participant sets the target up for a follow-up attack from another, and unison guards where a character can swap in after another guards for a unique support move. In fact, the game's Unison Mode seems mostly geared around this mechanic.
* All of the ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi'' [=RPG=]s feature combination attacks for special moves, requiring careful timing and coordination to pull off. ''Super Star Saga''[='=]s Bros. Attacks all rely on the Bros physical capabilities, often incorporating the various field techniques into attacks. These attacks can be advanced into different attacks (for example, instead of pelting the enemy with multiple fireballs, one huge fireball is made and launched at the enemy instead). The later games use item-driven special attacks, but they still involve co-operation of the 2-4 brothers.
** In ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Bowser's Inside Story]]'' Bowser himself demonstrates a variation where he teams up with his minions, such as turning a regular [[TheGoomba Goomba]] ZergRush into the equivalent of artillery rain.
** ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam Paper Jam]]'' demonstrates another variation: VideoGame/PaperMario can activate several combination attacks involving all three characters in your party (Mario, Luigi and Paper Mario), while Mario and Luigi can only perform combination attacks with each other.
** An unique non-example is from the original VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG where Bowser gets the Hurly Gloves. If Mario is conscious when Bowser attacks with it, a doll assumes Mario's place and Bowser ''[[GrievousHarmWithABody throws a surprised Mario at the enemy]]''.
*** [[FridgeBrilliance For extra hilarity, note that in other Mario games, it's normally Mario throwing Koopas.]]
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has some minor examples, mostly involving having one character use Lift and another shoot the newly out-of-cover foe, or multiple Lifts and Throws to fling [[HumongousMecha Geth Colossi]] around the field in the first game. The [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 second game]] lets Warp cause people already under the effect of a biotic power to explode, and the [[VideoGame/MassEffect3 third game]], in addition to making Biotic Explosions much more accessible, allows tech attacks like Overload and Incinerate to be combined, as well, though Biotic Explosions are still the strongest. These combinations are essential to the three caster classes.
* The Fusion moves in ''VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance 2''.
* ''VideoGame/PennyArcadeAdventures'' lets two or three of your characters combine their special attacks into one team-up attack. However, since those don't develop, and lack a power-boosting minigame, they usually only see use against enemies weak against them.
** It's also a matter of timing the three characters varying speeds. Letting the other two wait until Tycho's bar fills is a losing proposition.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' has Fusion Spells, (Mix Raids in the Japanese version) that can only be used by the Main Character. It requires him to have two specific personas in his inventory at the same time, and one of them must be equipped. They require a percentage of the Main's maximum SP in order to cast it. Effects range from full party healing, high chance of causing status ailments, but of course, the best of the lot are "Infinity" (makes party invincible for 1 turn) and "Armageddon", which against any enemy besides the final boss and the optional boss is an [[GameBreaker "I Win" Button]] (especially since an ability of the persona required to get it is to regain all your MP and HP when you win a battle).
** To elaborate, Armageddon does 9999 damage, but the optional boss has 20000 and the final boss is a SequentialBoss which will switch to another form with a new health bar when one is depleted.
*** Fusion Spells in ''4'', however, are absent. Until ''[[UpdatedRerelease The Golden]]'' that is, but they work completely differently. They only trigger after an All Out Attack fails to wipe out all enemies, and require two specific characters to be in your party (Yosuke and Teddie, Chie and Yukiko, or Kanji and Naoto).
** The All-Out Attacks from the same game count too, in which the whole team charges in and beats the crap out of the enemies if they have all been disabled, complete with an [[BigBallOfViolence animated dust cloud fighting with Batman-esque "pows!" and "biffs!"]], which usually deals a significant amount of damage to the enemies. The mechanic comes back in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}.''
** ''Persona 3 Portable'' adds even more opportunities with the Double Team attack, although you only need to disable one enemy and it's pretty much only when your ally feels like it.
* In ''VideoGame/Persona2'', two upwards party members use specific moves (a few even need specific ''Personas'', meaning most or all of the orders to the party have to be exactly as specified), to create a stronger move.
** Armageddon skips the damage numbers and kills absolutely everything. Even Hitler. It doesn't kill the BonusBoss, Philemon in the EX Dungeon. Instead he COUNTERS you by using it on your whole party if you try it. (It's known as Armageddon R.)
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' again has the "All-Out Attack", where the entire party rushes weakened enemies at once, while also adding "Random Fire", where the entire party showers random enemies in bullets, and "Baton Touch", where one character gives their turn to another to gain bonuses like enhanced stats.
* The ''VideoGame/PhantasyStar'' series uses combination attacks that were triggered when the right attacks were used in order, leaving it up to the player to discover the correct combinations. ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarIV'' added the "Macro" system, allowing the player to set up macros that triggered them almost at will.
** A large amount of them could kill enemies outright (depending on certain criteria: organic, bionic, dark, or all period). Also, even enemies could use them, but they are mercifully rare (and never the insta-kill ones).
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''
** [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Beat_Up_(move) "Beat Up"]], a move introduced in [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Gen II]], is a Combination Attack of all your Pokémon, which actually does take in account the Attack values of the Pokémon involved, but leaves out some of the subtler attack mechanics in order to make it work.
** And now in [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Black and White]] versions, in double and triple battles, using two of the Pledge moves in a certain order will produce new results, such as using Water Pledge followed by Fire Pledge creating a rainbow which basically grants you the Serene Grace ability for four turns. Beat Up has also been altered to only use the Pokemon's base attack stat.
* ''VideoGame/RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy'' has Combination Arts. Leveling up Raidou's familiars will usually cause them to learn a special combo, and effects range from nullifying (or even better, ''absorbing'') elements for a period of time, super-charged shots or strikes from Raidou's gun or katana, to attacks that decimate every enemy on-screen.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Robopon}}'', combining software can get you more powerful attacks depending on what kind it is. Mixing FIRE and WATER will get you a Steam attack, which has a chance of causing a Fever.
* ''VideoGame/RogueGalaxy'' featured numerous Combination Attacks across a wide variety of party member, some of which were [[AwesomeButImpractical highly amusing and/or graphically impressive]], but the most effective strategy remained [[BoringButPractical attacking with the hero's sword]]. The same was true for most single-caster techniques.
* Large Staple of the ''Saga'' series from ''VideoGame/SagaFrontier'' onward. You can combine Magic and Physical attacks all into one assault dealing up to 10,000 damage and possibly over that, Perhaps the best of them all is [[spoiler:The Wheel Vortex in ''VideoGame/RomancingSaGa Minstrel Song''; in fact the Combination attack: The Dragon is required to complete a quest]].
* ''VideoGame/SailorMoonAnotherStory'' had a TON of combo spells, called "link techniques". All you had to do to acquire them was to put them together in your [[strike:diary]] menu and press start, and the game would automatically reveal (and remember) any applicable link techs. The power of the Link Techs were dependent on a special stat that increased the more the characters in question used Link Techs.
* ''VideoGame/SepterraCore'': Grubb and Led have one. All multi-card spells require one team member per card, so technically they are too.
* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'' has a variant: whenever one of your monsters hits an enemy's weakness, every other monster of the same alignment (Law, Neutral or Chaos) will pile up some extra Almighty-type damage.
* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiImagine'' has build up charge over battles to allow combination attacks between your owned demons. The type of attack depends on the demon types. So comboing a Jack Frost and a Garm will give you the same attack as comboing a Pixie and a Garm as Pixie and Jack Frost are both Fairy demons. These are usually more useful than individual attacks.
* In ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'', once you become captain of your own ship you can perform two special moves, one where all four characters in your party call down an attack and the other where every member of your crew turns up either inflicting damage to the enemy or healing the party. However because you needed max SP to perform these moves most players [[AwesomeButImpractical only used them once or twice to see what happens]].
* ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles'' had a few attacks that only worked if a certain character plus 1-3 others were in the 4-man/woman/mecha band at the same time. Luckily, this worked well, with amazing animations like Sonic becoming a ball so that Amy could throw him in the air and use her giant hammer to hit Sonic into the enemies like a tennis racket.
** Also from the Sonic series, Whisker and Johnny in Rush Adventure do this attack where the former throws the latter at you. If you jump though, you won't get hurt. And most of the moves in Sonic Heroes (especially the team blasts), and some trigger moves in Sonic Advance 3.
* ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}'' has the United Attack, which can only be used with certain people in your party but is generally more effective than having them attack singularly.
* ''VideoGame/TalesSeries''
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' has Unison Attacks, which allow all four party members to use a special move in succession. If the right combination of special moves are used, they will "double-tech" together and create a final-addition attack on the enemy at the end.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth'' has its Secret Justice moves, extremely powerful attacks that are triggered by an attacking character and a supporting character. The characters must also be a combo of a mage and melee attacker, reached a certain level with the required characters and a certain battle count, have all party members, and for Annie and Eugene, past a certain event. Then there's the hidden counter whenever a Latent Ability activates from your equipment. Another requirement? Only one enemy on the field or less than 10% of its HP remaining if it's a boss. Last thing to do is to press X when "FINALITY CHARGE BREAK" appears on the screen. Seriously, you can't miss it since the screen colour changes a bit too. So much work just to end the battle in a flashy way... Very specific indeed. Oh, and let's not get started on the Dual the Sun hi-ougi, with its [[GuideDangIt specific button input]], requires 3 (Mao, Hilda, Eugene) party members to execute, Hilda and Eugene to initiate, and 2 controllers connected to the MAGES (Mao and Hilda).
** Invented in ''VideoGame/TalesOfEternia'', where Rid or Farah using certain techs at the same time as a certain spell was cast would combine the two into a special elemental weapon technique.
** In ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', using an elemental-flavored special move would leave a "Field Of [[MinovskyPhysics Fonons]]" on the ground. Stand in that Field and perform the right special move(s), and the two would Double-Tech into something completely new. The same character could lay down a Field and then exploit it, thus allowing one-person Combination Attacks. Having said that, most techs only dropped half-strength Fields, meaning you'd have to do two of the same element just to ''create'' a Field to double-tech with, so this is a weird situation where double-person Combination attacks are [[AwesomeButImpractical less viable than solo ones]].
** In ''VideoGame/TalesOfHearts'', Unison Attacks can only be done when one character isn't even in battle. They're always between a character who's in battle and another one who's been called in from the back through the Assist Arte mechanic. This essentially allows a character to alter and/or power up their own move or spell by spending the CG to summon the assister.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' has tons of these, and they can be activated as long as you have a segment of the overlimit gauge filled. Alternatively, you can let the gauge max out and enter Overlimit mode, where they can be chained together rapidly for the duration, even switching your partner for the attacks in the process.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2'' gives every single party member a dual [[LimitBreak Hi-ougi/Mystic Arte]] they can perform with Ludger once they've [[RelationshipValues gained enough affinity with him]].
* ''VideoGame/TokyoMirageSessionsFE'': The combat system is based around the idea of a character on their turn hitting an enemy with an attack it's weak to, leading to each of your other party members (including benched ones after a certain point) automatically using attacks that chain together. Since the total party members are seven, this can lead to seven consecutive attacks (so long as someone doesn't use an attack that can't be chained). InUniverse, these strings of attacks are known as Sessions. If you think this makes you overpowered, mind that enemies can use Sessions too, so you may pay dearly for even a small mistake.
* Used in ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 4}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 5}}''. In ''4'', there were four party members that were always all used at once, and there was a combo for every possible combination of two and three characters, plus a secret one for the whole party. In ''5'', there are six party members, of which you can use three at any given time, and there's a combo for each possible pair.
** In [[VideoGame/WildArms1 Alter Code:F]], a front row character can perform one with a ''back row'' (inactive) character positioned directly behind. The back row character must be equipped with the Assist Blitz skill. It occurs randomly when using a normal attack.
** ''VideoGame/WildArms3'', while not having the same kind of combo attacks as the games to follow it, has a few attacks that utilize the power of teamwork. First is Janus and his lackeys [[ThoseTwoGuys Dario and Romero]], who use a triple-attack they call The Trinity, and specifically state that all 3 of them must be present to use it. Later on, the Schroedinger family uses a move called Wild Bunch, which combines their various talents (Alfred's bombs, Todd's sword, and Shady's fire breath) for a rather powerful attack against your whole team. Finally, your own team gets one (of sorts) with the Arc Impulse arcana, which has its base power increased for each ally you have defending. With one person casting it and the other three defending, it becomes surprisingly powerful, but of course, with only one person attacking in a single round and no one to heal or support, this strategy is pretty much AwesomeButImpractical.
* In ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'', everyone of your partners can perform three different forms of this with Neku, and beware when Joshua channels all your partners energy through his [[RuleOfSymbolism Jesus beam]] in the last battle.....
* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', the Hunter class can tame wild animals to fight alongside them as combat pets. A hunter can keep up to five pets with them in the field, but only one of those five can be actively summoned at any given time. However, high level hunters gain an ability called Stampede, which temporarily summons the other four pets to attack the hunter's current target alongside the active pet for 20 seconds.
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' has a somewhat less flashy example with its Chain Attacks. When your party gauge is maxed out, initiating a chain attack allows each character to use their special attacks in succession without interruption and regardless of cooldown. Arts that cause status effects are even boosted to 100% effectiveness against anything not totally immune to them, allowing even bosses to be disabled with the right combination of moves.
** Building character Affinity will increase the chance that the chain will be extended for extra hits beyond the initial three. With sufficiently high Affinities, the characters can continue to attack until they ''run out of moves''. In addition, moves in the same category (denoted by their color) will have their strength multiplied if they are used in succession, and Talent Arts act like wildcards, chaining from or to any color.
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' Episode II features combination attacks between characters, such as Jr. and Momo or Shion and Jin teaming up to deliver a unique attack in tandem. This was also present in Episode III as co-op attacks, but these occur more randomly.

[[folder:Shoot Em Up]]
* In the ''VideoGame/{{Raiden}}'' series, two players can also combine their attacks.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' uses this for some [[DualBoss Trio Bosses]], such as some of the Prismrivers' spell card attacks from ''Perfect Cherry Blossom'' or the Three Fairies of Light at the end of ''Great Fairy Wars''.
** An [[GoodBadBugs unintentional example]] comes from ''Imperishable Night''. In that game the player controls a human-youkai team, switching between the two with the press of a button to deal different attacks. But in the case of [[CuteWitch Marisa Kirisame]] and [[MarionetteMaster Alice Margatroid]], spamming the "switch" button allows for both of them to attack simultaneously for insane amounts of damage, which fans have taken to calling the [[PortmanteauCoupleName "Malice Cannon."]]
** The ''VideoGame/TouhouSoccer'' fan game has extremely over-the-top special attacks for its characters, but their combination strikes really take the cake (and stud it with spikes, set it on fire, then hurl it at the goalie at the speed of sound). For example, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BmGmypNWJA Remilia Scarlet]] + [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIAH6USEbUQ Flandre Scarlet]] = [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvFIafpVMh4 Kiss Thine Arse Goodbye]]. Marisa, Alice, and Patchouli's combo, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDgMg1ipW0w Master Blade]]," is notable for ''destroying the damn stadium'', Sakuya and Eirin have a rather odd case of an ''accidental'' Combination Attack in that they're really [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzWpJ_-JI_M trying to kill each other]], while Cirno and Letty's combination [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DO3xhnz-Q8s ends predictably]] for Cirno. Oddly enough, it's one of Ran's abilities (and it's NOT a combination, either!) that's the only one actually capable of (briefly) BREAKING [[MadeOfIndestructium that ball.]]
** The fangame ''VideoGame/ConcealedTheConclusion'' has several combination spellcards between Yukari, Ran and Chen, and another one between Yukari and Yuyuko. The FinalBoss [[spoiler:White Reimu]]'s final spellcard is a combination between [[OhCrap herself, Remilia, Yuyuko, Kaguya and Eiki]].
* The two-player mode of ''Lightning Fighters/Trigon'' has the Trigon weapons.
* In the two-player mode of ''VideoGame/{{Twinbee}}'', there are two different ones - one if the players line up horizontally, and one if they line up vertically.

[[folder:Stealth Based Game]]
* In ''VideoGame/{{Tenchu}}'''s cooperative mode, if one player makes a stealth kill, and his partner is also in-range and undetected, the game executes a mini-{{cutscene}} of a double stealth kill on an AmazingTechnicolorBattlefield.

[[folder:Third Person Shooter]]
* In ''VideoGame/LostPlanet 2'''s multiplayer mode, there is the Support Cannon, which is pretty much this. A player with a support weapon can pull this out, then up to 3 more players can join in an attack that is [[ShoutOut very reminiscent]] of Franchise/SuperSentai series. Depending on the type of support weapon the main player uses, and the weapons the supporters are equipped with, different attacks can result. Usually, the Support Cannon fires a [[WaveMotionGun big red laser]], but it can also throw a [[CombinedEnergyAttack giant fireball]] or be used like [[{{BFS}} Big Freaking Laser Blade]].
* ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' and its sequel allow players to use their chainsaw bayonets on the same enemy simultaneously. Since the chainsaw bayonet is a one-hit kill anyway, it's kind of overkill, but still looks pretty awesome.

[[folder:Tower Defense]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Onslaught2}}'' is a {{tower defense}} game that has some of the basic towers interact with each other (such as Lasers chaining like [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert2 Prism Towers]]), but to survive for any appreciable time the player has to use tower combos, where if a tower can fire at an enemy and is also within range it will instead launch [[MoreDakka ludicrously]] [[{{BFG}} powerful]] [[MacrossMissileMassacre attacks]] [[BeamSpam that]] [[EarthShatteringKaboom can]] [[AtomicHate kill]] [[KillItWithFire most]] [[DeadlyGas mooks]] [[OneHitKill instantly]]. [[http://onslaught.playr.co.uk/about.combos.html See for yourself.]]
** One of them (Black Hole) is powerful enough to actually ''beat'' the game's own EndlessGame nature: it OneHitKO and area of effect qualities beat the ever increasing health and speed of mooks. If the whole map is filled with them, they will destroy anything.
* ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies2ItsAboutTime'' has a ''mook'' version of this in [[BandLand Neon Mixtape Tour]]. When the Rap Jam is playing, MC Zom-B gains the ability to spin his microphone to [[InstantDeathRadius kill all plants in a 3x3 radius around it]], while Breakdancer Zombie gains the ability to kick zombies forwards 1.5 tiles, [[DungeonBypass bypassing defenses]]. Combined together, the duo can wreak havoc on your defenses, with Breakdancer kicking MC into your plants and MC destroying them with his microphone.

[[folder:Turn Based Strategy]]
* ''[[VideoGame/NintendoWars Advance Wars: Dual Strike]]'' introduced the Tag system, whereby two [=COs=] are selected and switched in and out to make strategic use of their abilities. When both of the their power meters are fully charged, they can use a Tag Power, which effectively grants two turns using both of their Super [=CO=] Powers in succession. Several [=COs=] have "Tag Breaks" with one another, which increases the potency of the attack. Many of these Tag Breaks are bona fide [[GameBreaker Game Breakers]].
* ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'' allows characters to use special attacks known as Multiple Assaults, which are distinct from its normal combat system. These attacks target multiple enemies ''or'' require multiple units, though not necessarily both (some target only one enemy, while some like Taizo Hori's only need one unit to use).
** Being a successor to ''Namco X Capcom'', ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' not only has Multiple Assaults returning, but most of the characters are "Pair Units". This means that a "''normal attack''" is even considered this as both characters in the pair attack the opponent simultaneously.
* Placing several characters in close proximity next to an enemy in ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' allows for a percentage chance that the characters will perform a combo attack, up to four characters. ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'' ups the ante by adding Tower Attacks. ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}'' takes it even further by allowing a pair of characters to combine almost any two low rank special attacks together with frequently hilarious looking results, and allows for a tower of characters to perform unique specials. It also introduces the Magichange system, which allows a monster to transform into a weapon for a human character, enabling the use of a few new special attacks that more often then not have the monster shift back into its normal form to perform a combination strike with their partner.
** Also, the page quote references the ''other'' kind of combo, which consists of ordering several characters to attack a same enemy in succession, granting them an attack bonus. By placing your characters correctly, you can accumulate the boosts of both methods (well, not to its ''full'' potential, because it would require 12 characters and you're only allowed 10).
** ''VideoGame/DisgaeaDimension2'' also has Mounted attacks, which allow a character riding on a monster unit to dish out improved damage and an OverlyLongFightingAnimation. For example, one mounted on a Prinny gains access to [[VideoGame/{{Bomberman}} Bomber Dood]], which blasts the hell out of one specific square with a giant bomb, while a Mothman will grant access to the Moth Tornado attack, enabling, say, Laharl to maul three enemies simultaneously.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' also has them. In that case, they require Judge Points. When initiated by any character, allies with a combo ability set in range of the target also attack the same enemy. Amusingly, the mechanics are simply based on each character adding a multiplier to the initiator's attack, so if this is done with a HealingShiv, everyone is joining in on a healing beat-down.
* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'':
** A recurring technique in the series is the [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Triangle_Attack "Triangle Attack"]], executed by having three specific units (usually Pegasus Knights, though sometimes other classes can use it too) surround an enemy, and then attacking it. The resulting beatdown is a guaranteed CriticalHit.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' takes out the Triangle Attack, but adds in the new Pair-Up system. When united are paired up, they supporting unit has a chance to dish out their own attack following the main unit's attack.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' modifies the Pair-Up system by dividing it into [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Attack_Stance Attack Stance]] and [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Guard_Stance Guard Stance.]]
** The Triangle Attack returns in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'', but as the personal joint skill of the Whitewing Sisters (Palla, Catria and Est)
* ''VideoGame/HoshigamiRuiningBlueEarth'' was an underplayed (due to bad design choices leading to NintendoHard) [=PS1=] title in which you could set up a "Session." Characters in Session would hit an enemy in the direction they (the characters) were facing, presuming an enemy was ''fed'' to them using the "Shoot" command; getting all six characters involved in a Session was an almost-guaranteed One Hit Kill, and had the added bonus of possibly looting their equipment.
* In ''[[VidoeGame/LaPucelle La Pucelle Tactics]]'', allies that stand close to one another can sometimes use combination attacks on the enemy. Also, if you enter a battle with an enemy unit, any ally units also attacking that unit or standing next to you or the enemy unit are also drawn into the battle to fight at the same time. This also works in reverse for the enemies.
* In ''VideoGame/OgreBattle 64'', magic users in the same row have a chance to combine their spells into a more powerful one as long as the spell types and elements were compatible.
* ''VideoGame/RecordOfAgarestWar'' - Characters with enough AP could combo their attacks into bigger, better attacks, all the more so if they were in the "combo zone" of other characters.
* The ''VideoGame/SakuraWars'' games have special combination attacks that the player's character can launch alongside the girl with the highest current RelationshipValues. Since each girl's Combination Attack is very different, this adds strategic importance to the DatingSim portions of the game.
* ''VideoGame/ShiningForce Feather'' has Union Attacks, where two characters pool their Force Points and combination attack a target at the same time, and Connect Attacks, where two or more characters who would normally go sequentially can combine their turns into one long combo.
* ''VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'' has dozens of combination attacks, divided into "certain combinations of ranged, melee, and magic classes in a squad", "certain number of a single class" and the usual "Certain combinations of the main characters." In fact, each main character had a combination attack with the main character, and pulling them off helped determine their RelationshipValues.
* ''VideoGame/StellaDeusTheGateOfEternity'', had a rather standard combination attack: each character had a specific zone around them in which they would propagate Aura effects; if an enemy was within the Zone of at least two allies, the two could initiate a Combination attack. As with ''Tales of Symphonia'', two characters related by plot (lovers Avis and Lumena, PowerTrio Spero Grey & Adara, etc) would use a unique attack instead of a standard animation. Unusually, Combination Attacks were not restricted to the party; enemies--even faceless {{Mook}}s--could use them.
* ''VideoGame/VandalHearts: Flames of Judgement'' has Team Attacks, which are randomly triggered if a character with a high leadership-based stat scores a hit on the enemy, there is a chance of a nearby ally being exhorted to chip in with a bonus attack. If you're really lucky and surrounding an enemy, this could lead to all four characters whaling on the enemy in one go.

* ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven'' has a multitude of 2- or 3-person combination moves, as well as a chain shoot system that allows two or more players to chain up a continuous attack using individual techniques.

!!Non-video game examples:

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** Dark Souls has [[LethalJokeCharacter Don Kanon'ji]] summon his team for his specials. They all work together in the "Karakura Super Attack", which, while having a tiny hitbox, is one of the strongest moves in the game.
** And then there's the Super attack which can only be used by Kyoraku and Ukitake if they team up. Used from the right position, it can potentially wreck everything on screen.
** It also had some of the Captains and some of the Visored execute a many-layered combo attack on Aizen using several of their special abilities. [[spoiler:Too bad he used Kyoka Suigetsu.]]
* ''Blocker Gundan IV Machine Blaster'' did not feature CombiningMecha in the traditional sense compared to most other SuperRobot teams. However, they ''did'' fit this trope, nonetheless, via their numerous combination attacks, which you can see in [[http://www.encirobot.com/astr/astr-mec_le_armi_congiunte_(1).asp Joint Weapons 1]], [[http://www.encirobot.com/astr/astr-mec_le_armi_congiunte_(2).asp Joint Weapons 2]], [[http://www.encirobot.com/astr/astr-mec_le_armi_congiunte_(3).asp Joint Weapons 3]], and [[http://www.encirobot.com/astr/astr-mec_le_armi_congiunte_(4).asp Joint Weapons 4]].
* Typical Twin Shots in ''Anime/CaptainTsubasa'', though there're other noticeable ones such as Tsubasa and Misaki's Golden Combination Pass, and Tachibana Twin's Skylab Hurricane.
* In ''Franchise/{{Digimon}},'' many Digimons' attacks can combine into new attacks, first seen waaaay back in season one when Kabuterimon and Togemon took on Centarumon.
** In ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'', the protagonists were unable to defeat Sakakkumon until they realized that they could combine their powers to create new attacks -- Sakkakumon could only block/reflect techniques that he'd already seen.
* The Frost Brothers from ''[[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam X]]'' are quite fond of this. Their most famous team-up involves younger brother Olba holding the opponent in place with his Gundam's pincer claws while big brother Shagia lays into them with his beam saber; unfortunately for them, it's always interrupted halfway through. Later on, they get a {{BFG}} that mounts on Olba's Gundam and has to be operated by Shagia's.
** And possibly the most famous from the Gundam franchise, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhKpSuUlAdU The Erupting Shuffle Alliance Attack.]]
** Before that, the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Black Tri-Stars]] (and their [[{{Expy}} expies]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Hilda, Mars, and Herbert]]) have their Jet Stream Attack.
* ''LightNovel/{{Inukami}}'': Kaoru's Inukami can group up in threes (sometimes nine of them excluding Nadeshiko) to perform a powerful spell called "Inferno".
* In ''LightNovel/LordMarksmanAndVanadis'', Tigre's bow can do this with any of the Dragonic Tools, which are legendary weapons. These attacks are capable of ''sniping dragons from the sky, punching clean through layered steel fortress doors and obliterating entire castle keeps''.
* Franchise/LyricalNanoha:
** The ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'' [[ComicBookAdaptation manga]] set some time after the events of the season: "Nanoha and Fate Mid-Ranged Annihilation Combination! Air Attack, Blast Calamity!" [[PersonOfMassDestruction Hayate]] used one of her bigger spells to match their combined attack, and the explosion made from the two colliding forces was one of the few things that was able to destroy [[StoneWall Yuuno's]] ContainmentField.
** Also, in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'':
---> '''Nanoha:''' Full power! Starlight ...\\
'''Fate:''' Lightning flash! Plasma zanber ...\\
'''Hayate:''' Resound, horn of judgement! Ragnarok ...\\
'''All:''' BREAKER!!!
* The robots of the ''Mazinger trilogy'' (''Anime/MazingerZ'', ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' and ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'') and ''Manga/GetterRobo'' combined their attacks constantly when they fought together, and many of those attacks were used in the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' games: Double Burning Fire (Mazinger and Great Mazinger their ChestBlaster attacks at once. It was used in ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' and ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}''), Triple Mazinger Blade (Mazinger, Great Mazinger and Grendizer use their bladed weapons to slash the enemy at once)... and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfEIAKpJP14 Final Dynamic Special]]
* In ''{{Manga/Naruto}}'', there is a multitude of combinations available, and many revolve around combining two attacks of complementary elements; from Kakuzu combining Fire and Wind to unleash a blazing maelstrom at his targets, to the Raikage's bodyguards combining Lightning and Water to create an electrified wall of water to block foes' attacks ''and'' electrocute them, to the Third Hokage combining Fire and Earth to launch flaming balls of superheated mud at Orochimaru, to [[spoiler:Naruto and Sasuke combining the former's Wind Release: Rasenshuriken with the latter's Amaterasu to create a massive explosion of swirling hellfire capable of doing noticeable harm to the [[EldritchAbomination 10-Tails]]]].
* ''Manga/{{NEEDLESS}}'' has characters do this all the time in the form of "[[CallingYourAttacks (Attack 1) PLUS (Attack 2)]]!!!". One noteworthy example is, expressed mathematically, "([[PlayingWithFire LITTLE BOY]])^2 + [[GravitySucks GYRO GRAVITAION]] + [[SelectiveMagnetism MAGNETIC WORLD]]!!!" [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill A long name indeed]], Cruz.
* Even ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has one in the second fight against Israfel: aside from dodging enemy attacks and returning fire in perfect sync, Shinji and Asuka finish the fight by [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome delivering perfectly simultaneous roundhouse kicks to bash the two halves of the Angel together then dropkicking its cores to kill it, again simultaneously]]. The logic behind it was that since the Angel's halves assist and even regenerate each other, the only way to defeat it is to execute both at the same time. The entire sequence was coordinated to [[SoundtrackDissonance dancing music]] and was so popular it got put into ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars''.
** There will never be a more fabulous giant robot battle.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'' had quite a few instances of those, most notably during the fight against Oars. To give just one example - Usopp using his so-big-it's-stationary [[{{BFG}} Kuwagata]] to launch Brook at Oars, through a thunder cloud summoned by Nami. There have also been a few instances of two or three attacks being just launched side to side, receiving a conjoined or a new fancy name. Super [[BilingualBonus Frapper]] Gong, for example. Again, Thriller Bark arc is most notable for those, due to being [[spoiler:last arc in which the whole crew is together pre-TimeSkip.]]
** Not to mention the first Pacifista fight in the Saboady Park arc. While it was not given any special names, it involved an almost non-stop assault by the entire crew, performing some of their strongest moves at the time, all against a single enemy.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has numerous instances of these moves in battle, usually during Pokémon contests revolving around pairs, but the episode "A Surface-To-Air Tag Battle Team" revolves entirely around the concept.
* Virtually all installments of the ''Manga/PrettyCure'' franchise have had a Combination Attack, always as finishers. ''Anime/HeartCatchPrettyCure'' was interesting as it had a 2-man (Floral Power Fortissimo), 3-man (Shining Fortissimo) and 4-man (Heartcatch Orchestra) combo attacks. And the 2-man ones could be interchanged with each other! ''Anime/PrettyCureAllStars DX 3'' introduced a six-man, all Pink-type Cure special punch attack. Just because they could.
* The anime version of ''Anime/RanmaOneHalf'' gives one of these to Ranma and Akane, the "Dual Jet Stream Raging Waters Attack", during the Dojo Destroyer episode. Presumably, this was to give them more of a BattleCouple vibe, given that the manga had the Dojo Destroyer effortlessly take everything Akane could throw at him before Ranma showed up and oneshotted him.
* ''Anime/RosarioToVampire Season II'' gives us [[HornyDevils Kurumu]] and [[AnIcePerson Mizore]], stepping onto the stage with the '''Black and White Duet''' combos. Dance numbers performed so far are '''Duet #9''', a double spin attack with FemmeFatalons and ice claws that sent a doppelgänger in the form of ''Inner Moka'' flying, and '''Duet #3''', a rain of icy kunai from above. Notice how Duet #9 was performed after taking a few roundhouse kicks from the aforementioned Inner Moka doppelgänger, and Duet #3 was performed in ''kimono''. Say what you will, these girls ''[[DanceBattler know how to dance]]''.
** [[OverlyLongGag The crowd calls for an encore]], and Kurono and Shirayuki are back on for their final performance! [[TheDragon Aqua Shuzen]] is doing everything she can to spoil the show, but these girls are going to go down fighting! Ice dolls, illusions, ''magic?'' It's all just setting the stage for the finale: a meteor crafted from ice that could drive [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]] green with envy! Draw the curtains for '''Black and White Duet #13: [[DeathOrGloryAttack Final Waltz!]]''' [[spoiler:But oh, how Shuzen still manages to ruin the show!]]
* In the manga version of ''Anime/SamuraiDeeperKyo'', the Shiseiten are a FourTemperamentEnsemble so well coordinated that they're able to combine their usual techniques into one, with its own name. The resultant Combination Attack is so difficult that they can only do it once a day. When two of them do it, it has the double of their combined strenght. Three would make it eight times their combined might. But when they ''all'' use the Combined Attack, the Shisiseitensho, TheAce and InvincibleHero Kyo states that its power is just... [[OverNineThousand immesureable]].
* Harima and Eri from ''Manga/SchoolRumble'' use the ''Twin Hurricane Kick'' on the School Festival arc, during the horse battle. In fact, there are several more combinations that could fit the trope in that battle. Another that comes to mind is [[ButtMonkey Hanai]] and [[CuteBruiser Ichijou]] final battle.
* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' does this in both the Anime/Manga and the card game. An example from the card game is "Dark Burning Magic", which requires both Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl on the field. When done in the anime or manga, the attack name is usually a combination of the attack names of the contributors. An example is "Triple Burst Stream of Destruction" said when ALL THREE Blue-Eyes White Dragons attack at the same time. Strangely, it does not belong to the Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon, the fusion of the three Blue-Eyes White Dragond.
** The most famous one is the "Dark Cosmic Wave"(Shooting Spiral Sonic in the Japanese version) from the ''Anime/YuGiOhBondsBeyondTime'' movie. For once, the dub named it better. To explain the attack:
*** The "Dark" comes from Yugi's Dark Magician
*** The "Cosmic" can come from either Jaden's Elemental HERO Neos or Yusei's Stardust Dragon.
*** "Wave" doesn't really have a significant meaning. It's used in LOTS of attacks.
*** The Japanese version, "Shooting Spiral Sonic" is basically an upgrade of Stardust Dragon's "Shooting Sonic", the "Spiral" comes from the Light and Darkness combining by Neos and Dark Magician, respectively.
* Japan's ''Franchise/TransformersGeneration1'' manga ''Fight! Super Robot Lifeform Transformers!'' #8 featured the [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Minibot_combiner Minibot combiner]], a combiner in only the loosest possible terms made possible through an application of unspecified [[AppliedPhlebotinum Decepticon Super Science]]. It also allows the Minibots to form into an energy drill and use the "Minibot Warrior Spiral Attack'' to plow through Bruticus' chest--notable in that it didn't manage to kill him, but then again Bruticus is a proper CombiningMecha rather than just six oddly sized and brightly colored Earth vehicles strapped together.
* In one early episode of ''Anime/SailorMoon'', Sailors Moon, Mercury and Mars combined the Moon Tiara Action, Shabon Spray and Fire Soul into one oddly spinning attack of death.
* In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Goku and Vegeta defeat the Trio de Dangers by combining the Kamehameha with the Final Flash to form the "Final Kamehameha"

[[folder:Fan Fics]]
* ''FanFic/ANewOrder'' has Sailor Moon combine her tiara with spells from Mercury and [[spoiler:Uranus]] to create a stronger attack. Also, Mercury [[spoiler:and Uranus]] can combine their spells to flash freeze large areas.
* [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Danny and Sam]] tend to do this often in the ''FanFic/FacingTheFutureSeries''.
* ''FanFic/RWBYReckoning'' takes the combination attacks from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' listed below, and adds its own, known as "[[MoreDakka Red Sky]]", "[[DeathOfAThousandCuts Cloud Cover]]", "[[WhipItGood Twilight]]", and "[[FastballSpecial Sunrise]]", respectively.
* The ''Dual Force'' techniques from the ''FanFic/TamersForeverSeries''
* The {{Crossover}} fanfic [[FanFic/TheLegendOfRuby The Legend of Ruby]] features a scene similar to the WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} example below, though the girls have named the attacks by their elemental types instead of their colors. there
** '''Thunderstorm''' ([[BlowYouAway Ruby]]/[[PlayingWithFire Yang]]): Ruby creates a small ball of whirling wind, and Yang bounces a fireball off of it, both re-directing her attack and enhancing it.
** '''Mudslide''' ([[MakingASplash Weiss]]/[[DishingOutDirt Blake]]): Blake liquefies the ground and slides along the mud while Weiss does the same with some ice, as they attack simultaneously from both sides.
** '''Sandstorm''' ([[BlowYouAway Ruby]]/[[DishingOutDirt Blake]]): Blake breaks up the ground into tiny fragments of dust and sand, and Ruby blows it up into the air to create a sandstorm, obscuring vision.
** '''Volcano''' ([[DishingOutDirt Blake]]/[[PlayingWithFire Yang]]): Blake launches Yang skywards, who sets her fists ablaze as she comes back down to earth.
** '''Blizzard''' ([[BlowYouAway Ruby]]/[[MakingASplash Weiss]]): Weiss freezes her water into thousands of tiny particles of snow and ice, and Ruby sends them blowing towards the enemy to freeze them en masse.
* ''FanFic/TheBridge'': Twice
** The end of the King Sombra arc has the tyrant finished off by a combination WaveMotionGun via Princess Cadance using her alicorn magic and Xenilla's plasma BreathWeapon while using the Crystal Heart as a magnifying device.
** Godzilla Junior and Xenilla's unleash the combined blast of Thermonuclear Ray and Corona Beam that upgrade into a double Spiral Fire to try and hold back Grand King Ghidorah's continent busting WaveMotionGun. The [[BackupFromOtherworld spirit of Godzilla Senior]] adds in his signature finish for a Dynasty Spiral Fire that finally breaks the tie.
* This happens in [[Fanfic/RWBYSecondGeneration RWBY: Second Generation]] with [[AlwaysIdenticalTwins Nyanza and Sage]]. They can lock their swords together by the serration, which forces the [[DishingOutDirt Earth dust in Sage's]] and [[BlowYouAway Wind Dust in Nyanza's]] to collide. They can then deliver a powerful energy slash at their enemies.

* Remember the result of [[UnstoppableForceMeetsImmovableObject Thor's hammer meeting Captain America's shield]] in the first ''[[Film/TheAvengers2012 Avengers]]'' movie? As of ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', the two have weaponized this, and in several action sequences Thor smashes Cap's shield like a gong to send a shockwave into enemies.
** In the finale [[spoiler:Vision, Iron Man and Thor simultaneously attack Ultron to melt part of his Vibranium armor]].
** In the first ''[[Film/TheAvengers2012 Avengers]]'' movie Iron Man shoots his laser at Cap's shield which he uses to reflect the laser into the bad guys.
** During the final battle of ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', Captain America and The Winter Soldier team up to fight Iron Man [[https://youtu.be/qnZt9PFFz2I?t=309 with united forces]].
* In ''Film/JurassicWorld'', a truly epic one takes place between a ReformedButNotTamed ''Velociraptor'' and two other large predators. [[spoiler:Blue and the ''Tyrannosaurus'' tag-team the ''Indominus'' in the final battle, with Blue distracting her so that Rexy can land the heavy blows. And then it's the ''Mosasaurus'' who delivers the finisher by leaping from the water and dragging the ''I. rex'' down into the lagoon.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'', one dragon species is a MultipleHeadcase. Neither of the two heads has a regular fire breath, instead one belches large clouds of gas which is on its own fairly harmless while the other only emits pathetic sparks. Or at least, they ''would'' have been pathetic if not for the fact that they make the gas produced by the other head violently ignite.
* The Super Justice Team invite ''Film/BigManJapan'' to join hands with them in order to fire a beam at a monster he couldn't beat. [=BMJ=] moves his hand away briefly and notes that the beam isn't any weaker without him.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/KamenRiderDenO''
** "Hissatsu! Ore no Hissatsu Waza! [[AllYourPowersCombined Final Version!"]] (Literally: The finisher! My FinishingMove! Final Version!)
** Technically, any of Climax Form's finishers also qualify.
** Then, there was the time where Momotaros rammed his blade into a [[Series/KamenRiderDecade Final Form Ride]] Series/KamenRiderKuuga and decided to [[GrievousHarmWithABody destroy the bad guy with that]].
* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' has been doing Double Rider Kicks as far back as the [[Series/KamenRider original series]]. ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'''s movie ''All Riders Versus Dai-Shocker'' takes it in a couple of new directions, as Decade pulls off a one-man combination attack thanks to his DoppelgangerAttack, and the BigBad is finished by all 27 protagonist Riders (at the time) performing a [[UpToEleven Sesquiseptuple Rider Kick]].
** Decade got outdone in the 40th anniversary movie ''Let's Go Kamen Rider'', where all the Riders '''period''' (including all the {{Second Rider}}s) combine forces to defeat Shocker with an ALL RIDER BREAK. (Rider Break is when [[Series/KamenRiderSkyrider Skyrider]] smashes through something with his CoolBike. ALL Rider Break is ''just'' what it sounds like.)
* ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' are quite fond of using combination attacks, usually as a finishing move. They also frequently combine their weapons into a {{BFG}} to inflict a finishing move as well.
** Most of the team up movies/specials typically end with the BigBad and their remaining minions finished off with one by ''both'' teams at once.

* In Creator/SternElectronics' ''Pinball/{{Meteor}}'', aligning all three missiles causes the WOW lights to flash, awarding extra points for targets that are struck when lit.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Many successful tag teams have combination finishers which typically consist of the two partners each using his own individual finisher either simultaneously or back-to-back on a single opponent.
* Wrestling/TheRoadWarriors have the Doom's Day Device, an artifact from their time in the original LegionOfDoom and perhaps the most famous double team finishing move among English speaking fans...if it isn't those other 3 ds, [[Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys Dudley Death Drop]].
* Wrestling/TheUndertaker, {{Wrestling/Kane}}, and Wrestling/TheBigShow all three use the Chokeslam as a finisher. Whenever any two of those three are partners in a tag team, they will use a double Chokeslam in which both partners will perform the move simultaneously on a single opponent.
* Whenever Wrestling/TripleH and Wrestling/ShawnMichaels are teaming together as part of Wrestling/DGenerationX, they will often use their finishers in conjunction with each other with Shawn hitting his finisher, Sweet Chin Music, which instead of knocking the opponent to the ground like normal will instead set the opponent up in perfect position for Triple H to hit his finisher, the Pedigree.
* During [[MassiveMultiplayerCrossover the multi promotional]] Flash Tournament in November of 2011, Ice Ribbon illustrated how much fiercer their rivalry with Sendai Girls was compared to everyone else(at the time) with [[https://ringbellesarchive.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/111027_sendaigirls-1.jpg?w=450&h=300 a four boot sandwhich]] on Sendai founder Meiko Satomura.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* A relatively basic but useful example from the ''TabletopGame/HeroSystem'' are coordinated attacks. Normally, characters attack when their turn comes up and their attacks are resolved individually. However, two or more characters can try to coordinate so that they hit their target ''simultaneously'', and if they do so and succeed, the STUN damage from their various attacks is added together for purposes of determining whether their ''combined'' attack does indeed stun the target where the individual smaller hits might otherwise not.
* ''[[TabletopGame/IronKingdoms Warmachine]]'' and ''[[TabletopGame/IronKingdoms Hordes]]'' have "Combined Melee Attack" and "Combined Ranged Attack" rules. Units with this ability can attack in groups, ranging from 2 to full squad (usually 10 units); for every unit participating in combined attack it becomes a bit stronger AND a bit more accurate. Sometimes, it can be ridiculously strong AND accurate (though not always cost efficient, sometimes easily countered, etc.) [[http://battlecollege.wikispaces.com/WGDS+lists The Winter Guard Death Star]]

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/SuperMarioBrosZ'' has fight scenes famous for the main heroes doing double-team attacks. It's for the sake of RuleOfCool, and boy does it work.
* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', the successful use of a Combination Attack seems to be what cinches not just the four-person teams, but who leads them. During a training mission to the woods, the future Team JNPR defeats a giant scorpion when Jaune has Ren weaken its stinger with his machine pistols, Pyrrha sever it with her [[ThrowingYourShieldAlwaysWorks thrown shield]] so it falls and lands point-first on the scorpion's head, and Nora [[DropTheHammer hammer]] [[JustForPun the point home.]] Meanwhile the future Team RWBY kills a giant raven when Ruby has Weiss [[AnIcePerson freeze it in place]], Blake and Yang use the former's ribbon to make a giant slingshot to [[FastballSpecial fire Ruby at the bird]], and then Weiss use her [[GravityMaster glyphs]] so Ruby can run up a sheer cliff, dragging the bird by her scythe against its neck until it's decapitated.
** By the second season, Team RWBY has gotten good enough at this that Ruby is able to [[AttackPatternAlpha call out]] specific attack combos like "Bumblebee" (Yang and Blake), "Ice Flower" (Ruby and Weiss) or "Checkmate" (Weiss and Blake)... [[AscendedFanon some of which are names taken directly from the fandom's]] IdiosyncraticShipNaming.
** In season three, Team JNPR's leader Jaune tries to do something similar, to the immense confusion of his comrades. Ren and Nora aren't clear how each of them is contributing to "Flower Power" (which Nora mistakes for "''Flour'' Power"), and when Pyrrha Nikos learns that her and Jaune Arc's team-up is code-named [[PortmanteauCoupleName "Arkos"]] she struggles not to laugh.

* ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'': Used when minor villain Drizz'l threatens to summon a monster as a last ditch attack. The Light Warriors point out a flaw in his plan as they surround him, holding various swords and knives.
--> '''Black Mage''': [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2003/05/08/episode-282-a-new-foe/ The thing about calling upon "True Guardians" is that it tends to take longer than a fatal mob stabbing]].
