Best Bromances in TV and Film

The Top Ten

Joey & Chandler - Friends
Merlin & Arthur - Merlin
Sherlock & Watson - Sherlock
Kirk & Spock - Star Trek
skekGra & urGoh - The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

Even though skekGra gets impatient with urGoh, the two have a great affection for one another and are literally each other's half. In other words, skekGra is very much a tsundere to urGoh.

Troy & Abed - Community

Trobed is the purest form of bromance. I aspire to have this kind of a relationship in my life.

How are Walter and Jesse even bros? They just fought a lot! Troy and Abed on the other hand, we're the truest of bros. They rapped about how Cameron Diaz is the goat's moustache. They decorated troy as a Christmas tree singing "Christmas Troy". They are the creators of "Troy and Abed in the morning! NIGHTS! " for God's sake.

Troy had feelings for Abed. Everyone could see that.

Blondie & Tuco - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

This one's a dysfunctional one. One is a bounty hunter, the other a feisty, scruffy Mexican bandit. The two come up with a scam to get bounty money by saving Tuco from the noose, but the bandit starts complaining, their partnership ends, and hilariously Tuco reacts like he got dumped and starts finding ways to get revenge on the man with no name. What follows is our bandit refusing to stay away from Blondie, and the two grudgingly working together to find buried treasure. Also, they seem to love tying each other up. That's an amusing bonus.

These two are so obsessed with killing each other yet they don't go along with it because they have a grudging respect for each other and the former has started to feel pity for the latter. They like making each other suffer to the point where you're wondering if you're watching the Spaghetti Western equivalent of a Tom & Jerry cartoon.

Sam & Guy - Green Eggs and Ham

Sam is very touchy-feely with Guy, and while Guy's feelings towards Sam are platonic, he likes Sam but won't easily admit it. - SourNote2014

Edd & Eddy - Ed, Edd n Eddy

Under platonic circumstances, Eddy has kissed Edd under blackmail, the two have slept in the same bed (Rolf's), Eddy has landed in Edd's arms by accident (to which Edd snarks "What? No flowers?"), and in the movie Edd gently took Eddy's hands and they exchanged smiles. And Eddy doesn't normally like to be hugged or touched. Furthermore, although they're a dysfunctional pair they're better parents to Ed than his actual parents. - SourNote2014

Walter & Jesse - Breaking Bad

This one was weird because they once were teacher and student. But they play off one another really well.

The Newcomers

? Miguel & Tulio - The Road to El Dorado
? Lazlo & Edward - Camp Lazlo

The Contenders

Harry & Lloyd - Dumb And Dumber
Wayne & Garth - Wayne's World
Bill & Ted - Bill And Ted Franchise
Harry & Ron - Harry Potter
Peter & Sydney - I Love You Man
Balki & Larry - Perfect Strangers

This one's weird because they're distant cousins. But it is so bromantic.

Seth & Evan - Superbad
Grumpy & Happy - The 7D

Classic yin-and-yang comedy duo. Happy is overly affectionate towards Grumpy; Grumpy finds Happy a nuisance most of the time but deep down he really likes him. - SourNote2014

J.D. & Turk - Scrubs
Buck & Larry - Time Squad

Buck and Larry are kind of like Otto's adoptive parents, with Buck being the lazy father and Larry being the doting maternal figure. Also, they were implied to have done "it" at some point. - SourNote2014

John & Russell - Stripes
Shawn & Gus - Psych

These guys are hilariously tight. Easily #1

JD and Turk as PIs.

Abu & Iago - Aladdin: The Series

These two have a shared love of wealth and luxury. You can say that they're partners in crime. A reformed villain, Iago is the one who comes up with all the plans. Abu is a bit more level-headed, but constantly lets Iago talk him into such things. Iago can play Abu like a zither, but more than enough he has shown a deep concern for the monkey that's very poorly hidden.
The two constantly grab, tackle and collapse on top of each other. Iago even went as far as to kiss Abu on the forehead in one episode.
Iago does have a female love interest, whom he seems to care about very much, but being a workaholic, she only has a few appearances in the series.
All the same, these two seem to be more into each other than they are into getting rich. - SourNote2014

SpongeBob & Squidward - SpongeBob SquarePants

Sometimes Squidward doesn't like SpongeBob, other times he always sort of has. - SourNote2014

The Dude & Walter - The Big Lebowski
Drake & Josh - Drake and Josh
Prince Dimitri Vasilovich Orlowsky & Max Lozoya - Don't Turn the Other Cheek

A bromance between a Russian con artist and a gruff-voiced bandit who doesn't like being touched is an odd one indeed.

Lozoya is a knockoff of Tuco but is even more of a tsundere.

Son Goku & Genjo Sanzo - Monkey

Also known as Monkey and Tripitaka. - SourNote2014

Frodo & Sam - Lord of the Rings

Should be number one!

Finn & Poe - Star Wars

Why didn't these two hook up? - SourNote2014

Baloo & Bagheera - The Jungle Book (1966)

First of all, there's this amusing exchange:

Bagheera: You wouldn't marry a panther now, would you?

Baloo : I don't know. Come to think of it, no panther has ever asked me. - SourNote2014

Cheech & Chong - Various
Leo & Max - The Producers

They're very touchy-feely with each other.

Butch & Sundance - Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

The West had no greater bromance.

John Mallory & Juan Miranda - Duck, You Sucker!

"But what about me? "

Dale & Saul - Pineapple Express

One's sensible, both are stoned, both LOVE each other.

Mr. White & Mr. Orange - Reservoir Dogs
Rogelio & Michael - Jane the Virgin

#Brogelios4Life - SourNote2014

House & Wilson - House, M.D.

So much love there ❤️

Dimitri & Max - Don't Turn the Other Cheek!
Rick & Louis - Casablanca
SpongeBob & Patrick - SpongeBob SquarePants
Wander & Hater - Wander Over Yonder

'The Big Day' is one big celebration of Wander and Hater's intense and rather toxic bromance. - SourNote2014

Will and Mike - Stranger Things
Britt & Kato - The Green Hornet

They're totally platonic male friends, though. - SourNote2014

Skipper & Julien - The Penguins of Madagascar
