* In Year Five of ''ComicBook/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'', Batman recruits several supervillains to help him fight Superman's Regime, choosing them based on their adherence to a [[ThouShaltNotKill no-kill rule.]] After learning of Batman's plan, Superman does the exact same thing, though the villains he chooses are willing to use lethal force and are thus more numerous.

* Happens on a massive scale in the ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' comic book arc "The War for the Uncharted Territories", when essentially all the factions in the Uncharted Territories have to put aside their rivalries and join forces in order to stand the slightest chance of defending against conquest by the Kkore, which up until then has been defeating everyone in CurbStompBattle[=s=].

to:

** The [[CosmicRetcon Post-Super Genesis Wave]] reality provides an interesting example in the case of the Midesta Freedom Fighters, and the local Egg Army Boss, Nephthys the Vulture. She's an old friend of theirs, who only joined Eggman for the sake of keeping his oppression to a minimum, with the Fighters going along with it and only putting up a facade of resistance, in order to keep the region stable and not draw too much attention from either side in the grander conflict. Notably, both groups see Sonic as more trouble than anything, as his fight with Eggman just brings the latter's heel down harder on his victims.

* One story-arc in the ''CaptainAmerica'' comic has Cap teaming up with the ''Red Skull'' of all people in order to stop a resurrected Hitler from taking control of the [[AppliedPhlebotinum Cosmic Cube]]. Incidentally, this would lead Cap to [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished being briefly exiled from the United States]], since the U.S. government assumed he had turned his back on America by aligning with the Skull.

* Spidey and ''[[ComicBook/DoctorOctopus Doc Ock]]'' ended up working together at one point, in order to deal with a new villain (Carlyle) who used Ock's arm technology to build a bank-robbing powersuit. While simply being robbed wouldn't have been enough to put Ock on the side of his mortal enemy, there was also the fact that Carlyle was threatening Ock's former fiancée, known to Spider-Man fans as "Aunt May". (Truthfully, Aunt May being endangered wasn't really a factor in the fight. It didn't do anything except surprise Doc Ock for a moment and lead to a very funny ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' joke. Spidey came into the fight late as Doc Ock was already going after Caryle for stealing his tech and trying to kill him. To Doc's credit, he ''DID'' stop a building from collapsing just long enough to allow the innocent civilians to escape at Spidey's prompting. That did nothing to ''STOP'' him from letting the building collapse on Spidey, noting "you are not a civilian". Doc Ock also wasn't happy about the inadvertent team-up, later noting (as he told Spidey the weakness in Caryle's armor), "I am not helping you -- I am hurting him." World of difference.)

* Franchise/{{Spider-Man}}'s enemies Comicbook/{{Venom}} and ComicBook/{{Carnage}} hate each other more than they hate him. Any time Carnage pops up, Venom will call a truce with Spider-Man to go whale on Carnage. This most famously occurred in the storyline ComicBook/MaximumCarnage, which was adapted into a Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo game.
** In the oddly-named "Venom vs Carnage" comic, after Carnage produces a new symbiote, he and Venom decide that, in the end, they hate the ''new'' symbiote even more than they hate each other (it's implied in Carnage's case that this is part of symbiote biology). The result? Their only teamup. Venom calls it "Temporary. VERY temporary."
* Loki is willing to fight on Thor's side pretty much any time Asgard is under attack; his goal is to rule it, after all, and he can't rule it if it's demolished.
** Then in the Spider-Man comic "The Coming of Chaos", he was willing to team up with Spider-Man in order to [[PapaWolf save his mortal daughter, who had become possessed.]]

* Another Spider-Man example was one of the most memorable stories of ''ComicBook/{{Inferno}}'' that didn't involve the [[ComicBook/XMen mutant teams]] in the main storyline, where Spidey fought alongside J. Jonah Jameson to defend ''The Daily Bugle'' against the invading demon horde. It was little wonder that the writers named the story [[ExcitedShowTitle "When the Bugle Blows!"]]

(The Tinker was working on a teleportation device for the Enclave that Spidey needed to get to Wungadore quickly, as he knew the High Evolutionary might have inside information on the plague, and the Tinkerer was willing to help, seeing as his son was one of the victims of said plague.)

* ComicBook/{{Paperinik|NewAdventures}} (WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck's superhero alter ego) is forced to work together with a notorious time pirate known as The Raider early on in order to save a large part of Duckburg from being destroyed. Later on, they actually find themselves in EnemyMine situations so often that they build up a strange kind of friendship. The Pikappa reboot has a full story with this as an Aesop, with the Hero teaming up with the Evronian Soldier Ekdon to take down an EldritchAbomination creature the Evronians planned to use once as a LivingWeapon against the [[SpacePolice Guardians of the Galaxy]], being motivated in the bigger picture against the Imperial Adviser Gorthan, who was a long time ago Bitter Rivals with Ekdon and used a variation of KlingonPromotion to get rid of him and ascend into the Evronian Hierarchies. Best summed up by Powerduck himself near the end "The best ally is an enemy who has a score to settle with your own adversary".
