** A Real Life example, or close to one, is how Creator/{{Sega}} and Creator/{{Nintendo}} now work closely together after their intense rivalry in the 90s. An even closer example nearly happened when Sega tried in 2002 to negotiate a merger with [[Creator/MicrosoftStudios Microsoft]]'s UsefulNotes/Xbox division, but talks fell through at the last minute.

* In MixedMartialArts, the American UFC promotion and the Japanese Pride FC promotion duked it out for a number of years to become the biggest source for MMA. Most people agreed that Pride had a better stable of fighters, but the UFC had much better penetration in the American market. In 2006, Pride was forced to shut down over charges of Yakuza involvement. The UFC bought Pride, absorbed most of its fighters, and dismantled it, becoming the dominant source of MMA in the world. It has also bought a number of other rival promotions over the years, including the WEC and Strikeforce.
