* In German soccer the rivalry between Schalke 04 and 1. FC Nuremberg was quite intense during the 1930s and 1940s as both teams were among the best in Germany, frequently battling out the cup and the championship. [[note]]Which were both played in a playoff format at the time, so there were several ''finals'' involving the two teams[[/note]] However, the two fandoms now enjoy one of the strongest and most storied friendships, even going so far as supporters going to matches of the other team in their own gear and being welcomed. How this friendship came about is unknown, but one popular theory is that a bunch of fans of Schalke was getting into a fight with fans of Bayern and some Fans of Nuremberg saw this and as Bayern was clearly seen as the bigger evil ([[LoveItOrHateIt nobody who is not a fan of them really likes them]]), the Nuremberg fans intervened. If this story is true - and it may well have been the other way round - it also doubles as {{FireForgedFriends}}hip.

** Has happened again in December 2014, with the passing of the "[=CRomnibus=] Spending Bill"[[note]] the name is slang for "Continuing Resoulution[=/=]Omnibus"[[/note]], when Conservatives and Liberals united against the Democrat and Republican party leaders in power, namely President Obama for the Democrats, and House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch [=McConnel=] for the Republicans. The Liberals, led by Congresswomen Elizabeth Warren and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi were angry at the bills benefits and earmark spending to big money donors, especially in removing restrictions on political donations. Conservatives, led by Congressmen Ted Cruz and Mike Lee likewise were also angry at the Republican party for immediately going back on their promises to the conservative base, promises which the Republican party had just made to win the 2014 mid-term elections in November, rather than the base which came out to vote for them, as well as failing to challenge President Obama on several of his executive orders.

* Italian politics have the ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trasformismo Trasformismo]]'', a practice where opposing parties join together on specific issues or just to keep the extremists out of power.
** Italian parties often have differing views on many things, but when it comes to the need of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lateran_Treaty Lateran Treaty]] to be upheld and continued pretty much everyone agrees, to the point that even communists and anarchists voted to include its upholding in the Italian Constitution as one of the ''fundamental principles''. This is because the alternative would be a gigantic mess that nobody wants to deal with ''again'' (and those who voted on the Italian Constitution had actually experienced it).



** At one point Italy switched sides, giving birth to multiple cases of this: the Italian government was on the same side as the Allies, who were the enemy until ''literally the day before'', due to German troops seizing control of most of the country; in German-occupied territories, LaResistance was divided into four factions (Monarchists, Republicans, Communists and Anarchists), with each faction loathing the others but agreeing to collaborate and settle things peacefully after the war and Germany's defeat and king Vittorio Emanuele III (detested for allowing Mussolini's takeover and abandoning Rome and the armed forces without orders right after announcing the surrender to the Allies, even before the Germans moved to take over); and the ''[[MyCountryRightOrWrong Italian]]'' Resistance occasionally collaborated with the ''Italian'' Fascists (allied with the Germans) against the ''Yugoslav'' Partisans to try and defend the Italian population in Istria (a border area inhabited by both Italians and Yugoslavs, where Mussolini's government started throwing Yugoslav civilians into camps and the Yugoslav Resistance had recently started doing the same to the Italians); and the Communist faction of the Italian Resistance would occasionally collaborate with the Yugoslav Partisans against the Monarchists.
