** [[BattleCouple Nanoha and Fate]] fit this dynamic in later season. While both of them are capable of fighting at both long and close range, Nanoha prefers long range blasts and guided projectiles while Fate is a MulitMeleeMaster.
** Even more well defined by [[HeterosexualLifePartners Subaru and Teana]] [[OpposingCombatPhilosophies who fit the stereotypes of their respective magic styles]]. Subaru is a Neo-Belkan fighter who uses a pair of rollerblades to get in her opponents' faces and smash them with her PowerFist, while Teana is a Mid-childan mage who dual wields pistols and shoots down her enemies from a distance.

* Illager patrols and raids in ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' primarily consist of two types of Illagers: The [[AnAxeToGrind axe-wielding]] Vindicators that attack exclusively with melee, and the [[ArcherArchetype crossbow-toting]] Pillagers who fight at a distance.

* Zero from ''VideoGame/Borderlands2'' is BOTH of these, depending on how he's specced. One branch of his tech tree focuses on sniping skills, while another focuses on melee. While it's technically possible to put points into both branches, it's [[MasterOfNone not advisable]], meaning most Zero players will only be one or the other at any given time.

* Zero The ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' series likes this trope.
** The first game has Mordecai, who is designed around sniping as a primarily a long-range character, as is the mostly defensively-oriented Roland. They are contrasted by Lilith, a close-range SMG specialist, and Brick, a titan of a man and melee powerhouse.
** [=Zer0=]

*** In a somewhat more general sense, [=Zer0=] is this to Salvador out of the original team of four. Where [=Zer0=] has lots of skills that buff his ability to snipe, Salvador gets a lot of abilities that enhance his ability to simply tank damage at point-blank range, usually while vaporizing enemies with GunsAkimbo. The same is true of Gaige and Krieg, who are definitely better in melee and have skills that favor shotguns.
** ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'' is all over the place with this. You have Wilhelm and Aurelia as primarily long ranged classes (the latter being a very literal ColdSniper) because their powers are best at range, while Athena primarily fights in melee with her shield and Claptrap is a random bundle of nonsense with proximity-powered abilities. Nisha and "Jack" are a more mixed bag, with the former favoring both pistols and rifles while the latter has holograms to do the dirty work for him.


* The ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' series has two types named Fighting and Psychic, and [[ElementalRockPaperScissors Psychic-type attacks are super-effective to Fighting type Pokemon.]] Fighting-type attacks are usually physical (eg. Karate Chop, BrickBreak), while Psychic-type attacks are so universally Special moves that moves like Psycho Cut are highlighted in-game as dealing physical damage.

* ''ComicBook/XMen'' frequently teams up ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} (Powers: Long-range EyeBeams, tactical genius} and ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} (Powers: Stabbing stuff, [[GoodThingYouCanHeal surviving getting stabbed back]]) in this manner. Them being romantic and ideological rivals adds to the depth of their relationship.
