The group from the original Dragonlance books by Weis and Hickman were extremely formulaic, but enjoyable to read about at the time.
I will expand your TBR pile.

The original crew from Mistborn and Bridge Four from Stormlight are two of my favourite groups. Just the right balance of banter and trust issues.

A more unusual group that I really enjoyed was the Vagrant, harm, baby Vesper and the goat from The Vagrant. A bizarre dynamic, but they're definitely a group rather than a duo with support characters.
