** [[spoiler: [[MoleInCharge Max Denbigh]] and [[ArchEnemy Ernst Stavro Blofeld]]]] in ''Film/{{Spectre}}''. The latter is dominant, but the success of the EvilPlan depends on the former and each has a different reason to want it to succeed (the former is a WellIntentionedExtremist, the latter a straight-up bad guy). The two are confronted at the same time: the latter by Bond and the former by M and Q.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse,'' the [[GalacticConqueror Homeworld Gems]] are ruled by the Diamond Authority. So far it's known to consist of Blue Diamond, Yellow Diamond, and a third presumably called White Diamond. Their ArcSymbol originally had a fourth, pink diamond, implying that they once had a fourth member.

* In Book 2 of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', it is possible that [[spoiler:Vaatu]] and Unalaq were this rather than [[spoiler:Unalaq being TheDragon to Vaatu. While Vaatu was far more powerful than Unalaq, he was largely helpless for most of the season until Unalaq's machinations allowed him to escape, and Unalaq did so out of his own ambition rather than any loyalty to Vaatu. This comes across most strongly in the finale, where they merge into the Dark Avatar and are treated as a single threat, rather than Vaatu overriding Unalaq ([[HijackingCthulhu or the other way around]]) like [[EvilIsNotAToy most similar situations]]]].
** Book 2 of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' also ended this way, with [[TheDragon Princess Azula]] and [[EvilChancellor Long Feng]] teaming up to perform a coup on the Earth City capital, Ba Sing Se. However, from the beginning both were planning to betray the other with Azula planning to take it for the Fire Nation and Long Feng planning to take control from the Earth King and have a more iron-fisted ruler for the Earth Kingdom. When the coup is complete, [[MagnificentBastard Azula]] turns Long Feng's own men against him, having impressed and terrified them with her ruthlessness and cunning, ending it with a BreakingSpeech to her defeated rival.
