The buddy cop genre, fondly known as Buddypunk, has been around since the 1970s and has lasted until modern day. The film usually focuses on two individuals who have to work on a case despite the fact that they are polar opposites, hail from different cultures or can't stand each other. The films are generally action orientated with a dose of comedy.

At least one of the pair has to be a cop. New additions welcome.

Wounded in the line of duty +3
Unusually large explosions +3
High octane car chases +3

Racial differences +2
Using excessive force +2
Stressing out their superiors +2
Arguing and reconciling +2

Both members are cops +1
Undercover work +1
Using Martials Arts +1
Difference in approach +1
