* In ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'', Magneto sincerely grieves over Xavier's death and cuts off his Dragon Pyro's irreverent talk about the deceased abruptly. As in most versions of X-Men, Xavier and Magneto were very close friends who eventually found themselves on separate sides due to their ideological differences.

* In ''Film/GrumpyOldMen'', the eponymous characters, John and Max, have been bitter antagonists for years. During the course of their biggest fight yet, John suffers a heart attack and nearly dies. A visibly shaken Max goes to see him in the hospital, and when the nurse asks if he's a friend or relative, he pauses, as though for the first time, really realized what John means to him, and answers "...a friend."

Added DiffLines:

* {{Inverted}} at the end of ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'' (the series that started the ''Manga/SailorMoon'' franchise), where Minako mourns the death of Danburite, the villain who she fought for the last year. {{Justified}}, as Danburite [[spoiler:had done everything, including joining the Dark Kingdom and setting up his own death at her hands, to make sure Minako would realize [[MarriedToTheJob she'd always choose duty over her own happiness]] before she had to fight the full force of the Dark Kingdom, and she had just fallen in love with him before she had to ''kill him'' in battle]].

* 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.
