Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

"Well, that's another nice mess you've gotten me into!"
Cquote2.svg


Two funny guys who travel around the world (often in the Hollywood Atlas version), and though often at odds with each other are ultimately inseparable. They take on various odd jobs, Short Cons and capers, often to pay off their debts. They can go flat broke even quicker.

They often will have to compete for the affections of one local girl who assists them in their escapades.

Examples of Vagabond Buddies include:


Anime and Manga

Film


Literature

  • George and Lenny from Of Mice and Men.
  • Flaubert gave us Bouvard et Pécuchet who are more or less this.

Live Action TV

Theatre

  • "Con" Kidder and "Kid" Conner in The Red Mill.
  • Vladimir and Estragon in Waiting for Godot.

Web Comics

  • Griffen and Molly from the webcomic Dicebox are a prime example of this trope.
