** During and immediately after World War II, anti-Japanese sentiment was very strong in America. All that was forgotten when the U.S. jumped at the chance to make Japan a capitalist ally against the [[Analysis/RedChina People's Republic of China]], NorthKorea, and the eastern part of the Soviet Union.

* The Western far-right and far-left seem to really love UsefulNotes/VladimirPutin, almost as much as they hate Israel. Putin's right-wing supporters include social conservatives who admire his stance against the gays, Christian fundamentalists who argue that he's reviving the Russian Orthodox Church while the West continues to become "godless", and anti-EU nationalists. His left-wing supporters include aging old-school communists seemingly defending Russia by force of habit and hardcore anti-imperialists willing to embrace any opponent of American hegemony, the EU and NATO. In addition of admiring Putin in the recent times, both Russian monarchists ad communists (who have had a conservative moral stance dating back to the Soviet era) don't take kindly towards liberalism( in a generic sense) for contributing nothing but chaos, undoing centuries of Imperial & Soviet achievements which was later partly restored by Putin. Also, they seem to unite against nationalists of neighboring nations like Ukraine & Chechnya, seeing them as Western tools to weaken Russian hegemony.

** In fact, ISIS may be a major modern example - most charts and graphs you can find on the web suggest they're pretty much enemies with everyone else in the Middle East, not to say the world at large. (For reference, Indonesia, the country housing the world's largest amount of Muslims, staunchly condemns them.) [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even]] some branches of ''Al Qaida'' now condemn their actions - though in their case, it's more because they feel ISIS' intractable behavior does more harm than good to the islamic cause than because of their ideology, because they supported them before. Even then, if there's only one thing in ISIS' favour, it's the [[WeAreStrugglingTogether fractiousness of its opponents]] and [[GambitPileup colliding vested interests]], which could be best summed up [[http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_world_/2014/07/17/the_middle_east_friendship_chart.html by this chart]].

* In the WarOfTheTripleAlliance, Brazil and Argentina, who had long been antagonistic towards one another, went to war against Paraguay. They were joined by Uruguay, which was basically their punching bag.

* Creator/{{Disney}} and Creator/WarnerBros don't exactly see eye to eye with each other yet in certain areas can learn to cooperate. For instance, WB got exclusive video game publishing rights to certain Disney properties as part of purchasing Avalanche Software from them. This was a year after Disney opted to exit the game industry entirely and focus on licensing.

* Another great example from history is the Catholics and the Protestants for teaming up against the Anabaptists. In the end they took back the city of Munster and then called it a day for their alliance and begin to promptly fight one another again.

* Companies like Website/{{Google}} and Microsoft have always had their conflicts. But as soon as bills like SOPA showed their fangs? Suddenly, the ''[[UpToEleven entire internet]]'' was united to fight back. Whether the companies fight for freedom or money is unknown, but no one seemed to care anyway.

* Likewise the pro-choice or rather the "abortion should be an option in some well defined though probably very limited circumstances, even though I personally would probably never consider an abortion" movement (though that would of course be too long for placards) which - according to polls - accounts for over 80% of Americans is an incredibly broad coalition, that while they don't see eye to eye on much else (and often oppose specific ''types'' of abortion) are very much in agreement on the need to have at least some abortion clinics and in the fight against ever restrictive laws that would limit some states to one abortion clinic every two hundred miles - at best.

* Likewise, the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy received criticism from both the left ''and'' the right in American politics during its height. Many left-wing LGBT-rights activists opposed the policy because they believed that it wasn't inclusive enough towards LGBT people, while right-wing LGBT-rights opponents thought it was ''too'' inclusive.

** It is interesting that on the old Israel Insider website - a ''very'' partisan propaganda site for Israeli expansionism - many comment pieces were written by Northern Irish Unionists/Loyalists, including a regular commentator known for his association with extremist Loyalist factions. The particular loyalist grouping this commentator was associated with had strong links to far-right groupings such as Column 88 and the National Front, organisations hitherto not renowned for being pro-Jewish or sympathetic to Israel. The reasoning appeared to be both parties involved drawing parallels to a terrorist threat (the IRA/Hamas) drawn from a subject population who knew no better than blind hatred and violence towards their neighbours who were treating them with nothing other than forbearance and kindly understanding, despite all provocations. What Israelis or Ulster loyalists might have done to alienate and disaffect their neighbours was never spoken of, but the strong implication was that the two terrorist groupings were working together as a threat to world civilisation.
