* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'':
** In one episode, Spidey made a temporary alliance with [[TheBrute the Rhino]] to destroy a specs program which gave the owner the instructions on how to make more Rhino-armored supervillains. The original Rhino wasn't too happy about that, so after battling [[TheDragon Hammerhead]] and ComicBook/SilverSable for it, Spidey offered a team-up. After it was destroyed, however, things went back to normal...
** Spider-Man also made an unofficial alliance with [[BigBad Tombstone]] to take down their mutual foe, [[MagnificentBastard the Green Goblin]].
* ''WestrernAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'': Mr. Krabs and Plankton have teamed up on a number of occasions.
** The most notable being "''Best Frenemies''", where the two try to take down a restaurant more successful than either of theirs.
** Another example is "''Eeek, an Urchin!''", where Plankton helps the Krusty Krab crew settle a sea urchin infestation, because "he can't steal the formula with vermin running around".

** In the episode "Dangerous Minds" of season 2, Jack ends up accidentally freeing ancient spider creatures that are described as "neither good nor evil, they are simply consumers". They will literally eat everything, the world itself until there is nothing left. The villains don't like this as they want to rule the world not destroy it. [[TheHero Omi]] and [[MagnificentBastard Chase Young]] team up to stop the spiders and save the world. Chase even [[ExploitedTrope uses this as part of his plan to convince Omi to join his side.]]

* A similar plotline occurred in ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'', when the villainous residents of Arkham Asylum, freed by an alien invasion, join the fight against the aliens, with the Joker angrily stating that causing mayhem in Gotham is '''his''' job. He goes so far as to gleefully proclaim that the whole world has gone mad after seeing Gordon and Freeze protect each other's backs.

* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' episode "Let's Save The World You Jerk!"; Dexter and his rival Mandark are forced to team up to stop a barrage of asteroids from impacting and destroying the Earth. Unfortunately, their egos prevent them from cooperating, and they spend so much time fighting that the Earth ends up destroyed, with the two of them arguing over whose fault it was. Good thing for NegativeContinuity!
* In ''Franchise/TransformersGeneration1'' it's not unusual to see the Autobots and Decepticons (or {{exp|y}}ies of them) joining forces to take on a greater threat. It just takes a ''very'' large threat to make them do it. Usually [[PlanetEater Unicron]], but not always.
** In "The Insecticon Syndrome", Megatron and Optimus Prime fight together against the out-of-control Insecticons. Watching Optimus grab up Megatron's semi-conscious body and force-fold him into gun mode is [[FoeYay interesting]].
** In "Countdown to Extinction", it's Megatron and Optimus Prime cooperating again to stop [[TheStarscream Starscream's]] DoomsdayDevice. Watching Optimus worry over the damage Megatron is taking to unbolt the device is [[FoeYay fascinating]].
** In "Nightmare Planet", Springer and Razorclaw team up to slay a dragon. Razorclaw was planning to sit back and watch Springer get killed, but a princess bribed him with gold and pointed out that the dragon would most likely kill everybody.
** In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', during the second season finale, the Autobots and Decepticons' latest battle is interrupted by Starscream and his clones. The Autobots and Decepticons end up fighting the same enemy, and at one point Optimus and Megatron have a BackToBackBadasses moment... only for Megatron to grab Optimus and use him as a living shield. The clones eventually turn on Starscream later, join Megatron, and everyone is back to square one.
** In ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'', the Maximals join forces with the surviving Vehicons to survive when Savage appears.
** Earlier, in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', this happened a ton between the Maximals and the Predacons, always during story arcs where the Vok, the godlike beings using Earth as their own Petri dish, become active again. For example:
*** The entire final arc of the first season kicks off with Megatron attempting to form a truce with the Maximals when it becomes apparent that the Vok are a much greater threat to both of them than each other.
*** In season two, when an alien ship appears that [[PutOnABus put Tigatron and Airazor on a long bus ride]], the two factions team up to try to break into it, but all bets are off when Megatron gets control of the ship and all its power. Though [[TheStarscream Tarantulas]] does team up with the maximals in order to prevent Megatron from using the Vok technology to leave Earth.
** ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' also had Dinobot's alliance with the maximals, at least as far as he was concerned. Optimus considered him a welcome member of the team.
-->'''Dinobot:''' I am Predacon, despite our alliance. When we return to Cybertron, my fate will be the same as Megatron's. Perhaps even worse.
-->'''Optimus:''' I won't let that happen. You're a Maximal now.
-->'''Dinobot:''' What makes you think I ''want'' to be?
** ''Anime/TransformersArmada'' is ''technically'' an anime, but whatever. In any case, its very ''title'' refers to the Autobot-Decepticon alliance formed in the final episodes to combat Unicron.
** ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime''. The Autobots temporarily team up with Megatron to stop Unicron from awakening.
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'':
** In "The Return". ComicBook/LexLuthor is forced to work with the League to stop AMAZO, an android he himself had loosed on them in an earlier episode, from killing him. This applies to the League more, as AMAZO isn't out to do anything else not in his way (he moved Oa to another dimension because it was easier than fighting, and fought back against the League because they attacked ''him''), but he ''is'' after Luthor, who deceived and manipulated him. The League figures that the android will kill Luthor (at this moment in the series, in a HeelFaceTurn), so THEY decide to help HIM. Part of it was because [[ItsPersonal it was personal]] to GL John Stewart, as they didn't know he just moved Oa. They saw him approach the planet, give off a flash, and then it was ''gone''.
** Luthor and the entire Legion of Doom were forced to help the Justice League defend Earth from invasion by Apokolips. [[spoiler:''Luthor'' was the one who did Darkseid in.]] It was a collective decision of [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou "the only one allowed to take over the planet"]] combined with [[EvilVersusOblivion "even villains don't want the world to be destroyed"]].
** Franchise/WonderWoman and Hades against Felix Faust although this wasn't by choice. She was ordered to reinstate Hades by the Gods, and when she still had some reluctance, it ended when Hermes pointed out how Faust was indirectly harming Wonder Woman's magical friends by usurping Hades' post.
** The episode with the Justice Lords. Luthor hilariously teams up with Good Superman ''just for the pleasure of zapping a Superman, '''any Superman''', with a Kryptonite laser gun.''
---> '''Good Superman:''' Go for it.
---> '''Luthor:''' Oh ''yes''.
** Darkseid asked the League for help when Brainiac attacked Apokolips in "Twilight". Over Superman's protests, the League agreed. [[spoiler:Supes' suspicion was vindicated, since the entire plot was a ploy by Darkseid to hand over Superman to Brainiac in exchange for Apokolips' safety. And ''that'' turned out to be an even bigger ploy to grant Darkseid access to Brainiac's systems so he could take control of Brainiac and use its processing power to obtain the Anti-Life Equation.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'':
** In "Marabounta", Jérémie's newest attempt to destroy XANA goes haywire and threatens to destroy Lyoko itself. XANA sends monsters to help the good guys destroy the threat. When the combined team is victorious, the heroes expect the monsters to immediately turn on them. Instead, the monsters bow and then leave without incident. (Jérémie does warn everybody that this truce was clearly temporary.)
** In the following episode, "Common Interest", Jérémie and XANA team up to save Lyoko and Aelita when the uranium battery that powers the Supercomputer starts dying. This time however, XANA does strike back immediately after the teamwork is through.
* In the animated TV show of ''Literature/TheNeverendingStory'', the main character teams up with the evil female character, who even saves him at one point.

Neither Igthorn nor the Gummis want the bushes destroyed, so they reluctantly team up to stop a barrage get rid of asteroids from impacting and destroying the Earth.

ChainedHeat, as well.



* The title character of ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' regularly teams up with his nominal enemies against more powerful foes.
** Electrical supervillain Megavolt has joined forces with Darkwing several times.
*** When the two fight on the same side against an enemy that threatened to destroy St. Canard, Gosalyn asks Megavolt why he's helping out. Megavolt explains that if the BigBad destroys the city, there'll be nothing left for him to rob.
*** After Megavolt's Electrolyzer malfunctions and sends him and Darkwing into [[RealWorldEpisode the human world]] in [[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E40TwitchingChannels "Twitching Channels"]], they are forced to team up to find a way to return to their world (though Megavolt tries to double cross Darkwing at the last second).
*** Megavolt teams up with Darkwing in order to stop the Gosalyn-shaped representations of radio, light, and heat waves from wreaking havoc upon the city. His excuse for the team up this time? The physical representations of the electromagnetic spectrum hurt his feelings. (Darkwing was willing to work with him because he was an expert in the field - well, [[BunnyEarsLawyer the best one that was available]], at least.)
** Darkwing Duck teams up with IneffectualSympatheticVillain Bushroot a few times.
*** One episode features the crimefighter and the duck/plant hybrid fighting together against an invasion of evil cabbages from outer space. Bushroot justifies joining forces with Darkwing as follows:
---->'''Bushroot:''' "Hey, I may be a mutant plant-duck, sure, but I'm an ''Earth'' mutant plant-duck!"
*** Darkwing has to recruit Bushroot's help in [[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E55SlimeOkayYoureOkay "Slime Okay, You're Okay"]] after the latter's [=IQ2U=] potion accidentally creates a giant sentient patch of lawn that threatened to devour them both; Bushroot launches Darkwing past the lawn, where he is able to summon a flock of sheep to devour it. As a gesture of gratitude, Darkwing lets Bushroot go free at the end of the episode rather than arresting him for breaking into the botanic gardens to steal ingredients for the [=IQ2U=] potion.
** Supervillain prankster Quackerjack allies himself with Darkwing in [[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E54TheHauntingOfMrBananaBrain "The Haunting of Mr. Banana Brain"]], when [[MonsterClown Paddywack]] possesses [[CompanionCube Mr. Banana Brain]] and then traps both of them in a pocket dimension to be the permanent objects of his pranks. (That guy just wasn't funny.)
** In several episodes, Darkwing teams up with Megavolt, Bushroot, ''and'' Quackerjack, plus their fellow Fearsome Five member the Liquidator, invariably when they have been double-crossed by their leader, Negaduck.
*** Negaduck [[AllYourPowersCombined steals Megavolt's control over electricity, the Liquidator's control over water, and Bushroot's control over plant life]] with a magical gem in [[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E60JailBird "Jail Bird"]]. (Quackerjack had no power to steal, other than his wackiness. [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway That's your cue, fellow tropers!]]) The now powerless supervillains reason that Negaduck has also stolen their weaknesses, and they recruit Darkwing to help exploit them to get their powers back and stop Negaduck from destroying St. Canard.
*** The four of them did it the second time the Fearsome Five worked as a team, ''again'' after Negaduck double-crossed them. (Apparently, they didn't learn the first time.)
* ''WesternAnimation/DungeonsAndDragons'':
** There were several times where the heroes called a truce with Venger for mutual benefit; for example, "Valley of the Unicorns", one of Venger's servants [[TheStarscream enacted a plan to take over]], so Presto decided the best bet was to tell Venger about it. In "The Box", Venger reluctantly allies with them in order to survive after [[GreaterScopeVillain his demonic master]] is freed.
** Also, the kids form an uneasy deal with Tiamat to fight Venger in "The Dragon's Graveyard".
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'':
** Robin must reluctantly team up with Slade to save Raven in "The End (Part 2). Slade uses this time trying to annoy Robin as much as possible, naturally. Later Slade helps them out with Trigon with his extremely badass antler cutting fiery ax. (He didn't ''have'' to come back, but he wanted to, because as he put it, "I'm ''nobody's'' servant.")
** Also the Titans team up with Gizmo to rescue Cyborg. Actually, Gizmo has no choice in the matter as Raven threatens to turn into some demon-monster and devour him if he doesn't. (Robin figured that Gizmo was the only one who was knowledgable enough to repair Cyborg, although a lot of fans did remember [[PutOnABus Fixit]] and thought that he might have been a better choice...)
** Robin also teams up with Red X in "X" to stop the theft of a dangerous substance. While the last time we saw Red X, [[spoiler: ''he was Robin in disguise'']] this time the [[spoiler:the Red X suit was stolen by [[RiddleForTheAges an unknown person]].]])

(Darkwing was willing to work with him because he was an expert in the field - well, [[BunnyEarsLawyer the best one that was available]], at least.)
** Darkwing Duck teams up with IneffectualSympatheticVillain Bushroot a few times.
*** One episode features the crimefighter and the duck/plant hybrid fighting together against an invasion of evil cabbages from outer space. Bushroot justifies
Dr. Putrid T. Gangreen joining forces with Darkwing as follows:

As a gesture of gratitude, Darkwing lets Bushroot go free at the end of the episode rather than arresting him for breaking into the botanic gardens to steal ingredients for the [=IQ2U=] potion.
** Supervillain prankster Quackerjack allies himself with Darkwing in [[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E54TheHauntingOfMrBananaBrain "The Haunting of Mr. Banana Brain"]], when [[MonsterClown Paddywack]] possesses [[CompanionCube Mr. Banana Brain]] and then traps both of them in a pocket dimension to be the permanent objects of his pranks. (That guy just wasn't funny.)
** In several episodes, Darkwing teams up with Megavolt, Bushroot, ''and'' Quackerjack, plus their fellow Fearsome Five member the Liquidator, invariably when
they have been double-crossed by their leader, Negaduck.
*** Negaduck [[AllYourPowersCombined steals Megavolt's control over electricity, the Liquidator's control over water, and Bushroot's control over plant life]] with a magical gem in [[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E60JailBird "Jail Bird"]]. (Quackerjack had no power to steal, other than his wackiness. [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway That's your cue, fellow tropers!]]) The now powerless supervillains reason that Negaduck has also stolen their weaknesses, and they recruit Darkwing to help exploit them to get their powers back and stop Negaduck from destroying St. Canard.

''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'':
** There were several times where the heroes called a truce with Venger for mutual benefit; for example, "Valley of the Unicorns", one of Venger's servants [[TheStarscream enacted a plan to take over]], so Presto decided the best bet was to tell Venger about it. In "The Box", Venger reluctantly allies with them in order to survive after [[GreaterScopeVillain his demonic master]] is freed.

** Robin must reluctantly team up with Slade to save Raven in "The End (Part 2). Slade uses this time

The villains then put Batman on trial for ruining their lives and turning them into criminals, and they make the DA serve as Batman's defense lawyer. The DA demolishes the villains' claims one by one, pointing out with Trigon with his extremely badass antler cutting fiery ax. (He that they were all responsible for their own problems and would have become villains anyway; the only thing Batman ''really'' influenced them to do was wear costumes. The villains are forced to acquit Batman, but they decide to kill him and the DA anyway ForTheEvulz. Now that the DA has done her job, it's time for Batman to do his...

** There's another subversion in "Gaz: Taster of Pork," when Dib, evidently at the end of his rope, winds up going to Zim for help. He cites their partnership in "Bolognous Maximus" (which is an odd ContinuityNod to an episode that ended on a SnapBack), but Zim just [[WorldOfHam screams "YOU'RE MAKING IT UP!" at the top of his lungs at him]].
** Zim also provides Dib assistance momentarily in "The Most Horrible Xmas Ever" in order to get rid of/save himself from the Santa suit, but a minute later Zim convinces literally ''everyone'' to beat up Dib on grounds that he destroyed their precious Santa.

*** Megavolt teams up with Darkwing in order to stop the Gosalyn-shaped representations of radio, light, and heat waves from wreaking havoc upon the city. His excuse for the team up this time?

* In ''Franchise/TransformersGeneration1'' it's not unusual to see the Autobots and Decepticons (or {{exp|y}}ies of them) joining forces to take on a greater threat. It just takes a ''very'' large threat to make them do it. Usually [[PlanetEater Unicron]], but not always.
** In "The Insecticon Syndrome", Megatron and Optimus Prime fight together against the out-of-control Insecticons. Watching Optimus grab up Megatron's semi-conscious body and force-fold him into gun mode is [[FoeYay interesting]].
** In "Countdown to Extinction", it's Megatron and Optimus Prime cooperating again to stop [[TheStarscream Starscream's]] DoomsdayDevice. Watching Optimus worry over the damage Megatron is taking to unbolt the device is [[FoeYay fascinating]].
** In "Nightmare Planet", Springer and Razorclaw team up to slay a dragon. Razorclaw was planning to sit back and watch Springer get killed, but a princess bribed him with gold and pointed out that the dragon would most likely kill everybody.
** In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', during the second season finale, the Autobots and Decepticons' latest battle is interrupted by Starscream and his clones. The Autobots and Decepticons end up fighting the same enemy, and at one point Optimus and Megatron have a BackToBackBadasses moment... only for Megatron to grab Optimus and use him as a living shield. The clones eventually turn on Starscream later, join Megatron, and everyone is back to square one.
** In ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'', the Maximals join forces with the surviving Vehicons to survive when Savage appears.
** Earlier, in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', this happened a ton between the Maximals and the Predacons, always during story arcs where the Vok, the godlike beings using Earth as their own Petri dish, become active again. For example:
*** The entire final arc of the first season kicks off with Megatron attempting to form a truce with the Maximals when it becomes apparent that the Vok are a much greater threat to both of them than each other.
*** In season two, when an alien ship appears that [[PutOnABus put Tigatron and Airazor on a long bus ride]], the two factions team up to try to break into it, but all bets are off when Megatron gets control of the ship and all its power. Though [[TheStarscream Tarantulas]] does team up with the maximals in order to prevent Megatron from using the Vok technology to leave Earth.
