* [[TropeNamer Every tag team match ever]]. Professional Wrestling also ''averts'' the "tag" part with Tornado tag-team matches, where every participant is legal.
* Most long running tag teams have their own names, {{signature| move}} double team and {{finishing move}}s. The especially lucky ones will have their own theme, in addition to those of the individual members. This is both downplayed and expanded in Mexican parejas, where tagging is not the only method of switching, and entire divisions for [[PowerTrio "tercias" (trios)]] are common thanks to LLI/UWA.
* Parejas Incredibles is a common lucha libre attraction where {{tecnico}}s and {{rudo}}s are forced to work together against other mismatched teams. This is sometimes combined with Parejas Suicidas, where the losing team then has to compete against each other in a singles match with [[HumiliatingWager their masks or hair on the line]]. Wrestling/{{WCW}} had a similar concept with the "lethal lottery", where long running rivals would be paired together, the motivation for working together being qualification for a title shot battle royal, where they would also be free to finally beat on the partner they needed to tolerate to get there.
* The Torneo Cibernetico, most commonly seen on the Mexican lucha libre scene, condenses an entire knockoff style tournament into one big elimination style tag team match, where the participants often must switch out based on a "batting order" and the winning teammates must then wrestle each other in an elimination match should they have more than two members left when the other side is completely eliminated. Other times the match is halted after a certain number of eliminations, as a "qualifier" for those left to go to another event.
* Relevos Australianos is a minimum three on three elimination match where each team has a designated captain. Victory comes when either one team's captain is eliminated or every member of the team but the captain is eliminated.

* ''VideoGame/PowerRangersBattleForTheGrid'' uses a three-character tag system like ''Marvel vs. Capcom 2/3'' and ''Dragon Ball [=FighterZ=]''.


In VideoGames, this typically means a group of characters that the player switches control between. Whether or not the characters have separate HP meters is an important consideration -- sometimes the HP meters are shared, and other times they are distinct. A SwitchOutMove may be present, as might a CombinationAttack.

CombinationAttack. Mostly seen in {{Fighting Game}}s when the player controls two or three characters and change them between fights or during them, as well using one of teammates as an AssistCharacter during the fight.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/PowerInstinct'' is probably the TropeMaker for {{Fighting Game}}s, first with ''Gogetsuji Legends''[[note]]AKA ''Power Instinct Legends'', an UpdatedRerelease of ''Power Instinct 2''[[/note]] in 1995 (a year before ''VideoGame/XMenVsStreetFighter'') and ''[[DistantFinale Groove On Fight]]'' in 1997.


* ''VideoGame/BlazblueCrossTagBattle'' features a 2v2 system where characters can switch each other out, use their partner to call in one of multiple assist attacks on command, or use powerful {{Combination Attack}}s. Players can also drain their entire Tag Gauge to use the second character for unlimited assists one after another for a period, in the manner of a PuppetFighter. The game will feature an original episodic story, with one plotline for each of the four featured franchises (Franchise/{{Blazblue}}, VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}, VideoGame/UnderNightInBirth and WebAnimatiom/{{RWBY}}), which revolves around the characters being whisked away into another dimension by a mysterious cosmic entity, with a single spoken instruction: the side that gathers the "Keystones" gets to return home.

* In ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'', one of the most popular and powerful card archetypes are the "Gladiator Beasts," each of which have the ability to swap themselves out on the field for another one after they've battled that turn. This allows the user of such a deck to have ''enormous,'' previously unheard-of flexibility. The ability of the Gladiator Beasts is unanimously called "Tagging Out" by the fans.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Touhou Hyouibana ~ Antinomy of Common Flowers]]'' goes to unusual lengths to [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration justify why this mechanic is present]] when it wasn't in previous {{Fighting Game}}s in the ''Touhou'' series. The plot revolves around a technique called [[PowersViaPossession Perfect Possession]], wherein a "master" invites a "slave" into their body and can transform into them to use their powers. In mechanical terms the team has a single life bar, and the "slave" character can only remain out temporarily but also has RegeneratingHealth (capped at the amount they had when they were summoned).


* ''VideoGame/DragonBallFighterz'' features a tag system evocative of ''Marvel vs. Capcom 2'' and ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3'', with a squad of three characters.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Maribato}} Maribato!]]'' is a FightingGame featuring the characters from ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' as playables: You can pick a team of two ''soeurs'', and go all-out against another team of two. In a similar fashion to the ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' series, you can switch characters in the midst of battle.
