I suspect someone, somewhere might have brought this up already, but I thought of an alternative title for this particular trope. "Lovers in Arms", which I think sounds rather nice, possibly bordering on a pun. By alternative title I of course mean the little list of such things at the very bottom of a few tropes.

Anyway, just thought I'd share something I thought of about ten minutes ago!

I'm pretty sure this sort of thing isn't allowed in examples, but at least we can still enjoy the joke here

  • Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon. Married at 17 despite the opposition of Isabella's brother and king, then went on to win a civil war, finish the Reconquista, discover the Americas and secure Spanish dominance over Italy and the western Mediterranean. And also committed a couple of genocides. Nobody is perfect.

    • I wasn't expecting the Spanish Inquisition to come up!

    • Nobody expects the... Oh, you get the idea.

Wouldn't a picture of Worf and Jadzia's wedding in "you are cordially invited" be a good image link? Not only were they a really cool Battle Couple, their wedding invoked Klingon mythology about Battle Couple s

What if they're not really romantically involved, but Just Friends?

Not THAT Flexible. "The only actual thing rigid about tropes is the cutoff between one trope and another" Here what seperates this from all other pairs of badasses is that they're couple. They maybe just a couple, or they can be married, gay and lesbian couples qualify, as does any other couple. There is plenty of room for variations, but still being a couple is primary element of the trope and no matter how much you twist friendship tropes they're not this.
