* In Episode 93 of ''Anime/KirbyOfTheStars'', Dedede gets a big surprise when he learns that his latest prank, which involved exploding watermelons, "killed" Kirby, and that everyone in Cappy Town is having a "funeral" for him to remember his time in the village. Dedede and Escargoon become upset and start crying like babies over Kirby's "death". Dedede places a watermelon at Kirby's "grave", and then Kirby pops back out and eats the watermelon, and Dedede becomes overjoyed and hugs Kirby in realization that Kirby was alright after all.

* The ''Series/DukesOfHazzard'' did an episode where Roscoe thought that Bo and Luke had drowned. Roscoe, who spent years as an enemy of the Duke family, was genuinely mourning them as much as their friends and family. The narrator had a line that summed up this trope, "Sometimes, losing an enemy can be like losing a friend."

[[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor Cue a rather bizarre sense of a loss]] and perhaps suddenly feeling [[SympathyForTheHero more sympathetic towards the hero]] than ever before. This may just be the villain realizing that he will never have the opportunity to [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou personally destroy the hero]], but occasionally the villain might even seem to [[FriendlyEnemy genuinely miss him]], wonder [[NowWhat what he'll do now]] that the conflict is over, feel that villainy is [[NoChallengeEqualsNoSatisfaction just no fun]] without the hero to interfere, realize that he was ''defined'' by his enemy, and/or feel that [[WorthyOpponent a fallen foe]] [[NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead deserves respect on general principles]]. Luckily, the hero may well turn up alive somewhere else, and the mourning will quickly be dismissed as things return to [[StatusQuoIsGod status quo.]] Also a common cause/symptom of FoeYay.

It should be noted that the companies' top brass see their rivalry less antagonistically than fans do, with Phil Spencer in particular believing success doesn't have to be exclusive.

* Aaron Burr in ''Theatre/Hamilton'', after fatally shooting the titular character in a duel. Upon seeing that Hamilton has aimed his gun at the sky, he screams "'''Wait!'''" The verse that follows is nothing short of heartbreaking, as Burr quietly and miserably realizes:

Added DiffLines:

* Light Yagami in ''Franchise/DeathNote'' is initially gloating over he kills L, but when he has to deal with L's successors Near and Mello he contemptuously regards them as inferior to L, and is actually enraged when he finally meets Near and finds him wearing a mask of L's face. Perhaps not an antagonist so much as a VillainProtagonist.

* A heroic inversion occurs in SentinelsOfTheMultiverse with a mix of AlasPoorVillain and DeathEqualsRedemption. [[StarterVillain Baron Blade]] is a [[EnemyMine playable hero]] temporarily taking on the name Luminary in the [[CrisisCrossover OblivAeon]] event and thus his Luminary card has a flipside image for if he is defeated. It portrays the Freedom Five attending his funeral while his long time enemy Legacy [[DueToTheDead gives a eulogy]]. This is ultimately subverted in the Tactics timeline where the whole thing turns out to have been a [[FakingTheDead ruse]].

* Technically, they were supposed to be on the same side, but since they spent the majority of their mutual appearances trying to take each other out, Alucard's visible distress as Father Anderson dies in the ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' manga likely qualifies. Justified in that it seemed he'd been hoping for Anderson to be the one who's finally able to kill ''[[DeathSeeker him]]'', and [[spoiler:without sacrificing his humanity to do so]].
