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:

* 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]].

* ''Franchise/{{Neopets}}'' has an ([[AntiHero Anti]]) Heroic example: After the death of longtime villain Hubrid Nox in "The Faeries' Ruin", the Advent Calendar featured an animation of Magax, visiting Nox's grave and holding a present he'd presumably bought before Nox's death.

* A rare case in college baseball: When the University of California's baseball team was threatened with disbandment after budget cuts, fundraisers were held to save the team. Among the donors was Cal's biggest rival, Stanford University, whose fans made plenty of donations. According to former Cal baseball player Doug Nickle: "I don't think Stanford has any problem if Cal loses, but I think they had a problem if Cal didn't exist."

* [[Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar Julius Caesar]] wept at the death of his friend turned rival UsefulNotes/{{Pompey}}, after being presented with his severed head and hand by the Egyptians after Pompey tried to seek sanctuary with them. Some of this might have been [[SlaveToPR for good P.R.]], but he might have also genuinely believed that Pompey deserved a far more dignified end.
** Caesar had the killers put to death, for the above reasons and also to make the point that foreigners did ''not'' get away with assassinating Roman officials.
