Together We Are X
Bill S. Preston, Esquire, and Ted "Theodore" Logan are... Wyld Stallyns!

Lucky Day: I'm Lucky Day.
Ned Nederlander: I'm Ned Nederlander.
Dusty Bottoms: I'm Dusty Bottoms, and together we're...
All: The Three Amigos!

When a band with two members, when introducing themselves, say something to the effect of "I'm First Last, this is Second Last and together we are Puntastic Band Name." This is not just restricted to music, though- many superhero teams have been known to use this trope as well.

Examples

Anime & Manga
  • Parodied in Bleach with the initial appearance of Nel, Pesche, and Dondochakka. Together they are something... they just hadn't decided on what in time to get their introduction right.
  • After introducing themselves, the Ginyu Force from Dragon Ball Z would proclaim "Together we are...The Ginyu Force!" before striking poses.
  • The title of Futari wa Pretty Cure can be interpreted as "Together we (two) are the Pretty Cure!"

Comic Books
  • X-Men
    "Hi! I'm Nightcrawler!"
    "And I'm Shadowcat!"
    "We're X-Men!"
    "And these are your weapons systems!" *kablam*
  • Universal War One
    Kalish: We were 4, each one having 4 doctorate degrees. Together, we were nicknammed the 4 fantastics !

Television
  • Countless auditioners on talent shows.
  • On one episode of Mock the Week, Andy Parson parodies this trope:
    Hello, my name is Billy Cock, and this is my partner, Brian Balls. And together we are (beat) Billy and Brian!
  • This happens a couple times in A Bit of Fry and Laurie, usually as part of a parody of some television personality or other.
  • "I'm the idea guy. You're the cutting stuff up with waterbending guys and together we are Team Avatar!"
  • Super Sentai roll calls always take this format, with each Ranger introducing him/herself (either just saying their codename or giving a little speech about themselves) before all the members say the team name together. In fact, original team Himitsu Sentai Goranger's call ends with "The five of us are... Goranger!"

Professional Wrestling
