** Also played straight in ''[[Videogame/{{Command and Conquer Tiberian Sun}} Firestorm]]'', when CABAL going rogue actually does lead to Nod and GDI collaborating to bring him down.

* ''Anime/HighSchoolDXD'': The emergence of the [[TerroristsWithoutACause Khaos Brigade]] is such a threat to the Angels, Fallen Angels and Devils that it forces their cooperation and ends the feud between them: a feud that's been raging since ''Biblical times''. It's downplayed a bit; although the Khaos Brigade pretty much forced the three sides to reconcile, there had been talks about peace for a while, but none of the leaders wanted to be the first to actually extend the olive branch despite all figuring the war had become stupid and pointless at that point.

The Khaos Brigade was sufficient to mollify the more hotheaded subordinates and give them a reason to give peace a chance.

* Following the first arc of {{Worm}} the Undersiders were just gearing up for a conflict with [[ThoseWackyNazis Empire 88]] when [[spoiler: [[{{Kaiju}} Leviathan]] attacks the city, causing all of the major villains and heroes to team up to fight him, and killing Empire 88's leader in the ensuing battle]]. In the next arc, Coil and his subordinates are getting their plans to take control of the city from the PRT and the remaining supervillains when the Slaughterhouse Nine come to town, prompting another EnemyMine scenario to defeat them.

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII''. The Arishok seems to be this for the mage-Templar conflict in Kirkwall. He's the military leader of the most alien faction in Thedas (physically and philosophically), and it takes both sides working together to stop him once he's been provoked. However, that's just the second of the game's three acts - afterwards, the prior conflict resumes. [[spoiler: He indirectly *worsens* tensions by killing the Viscount, leaving a power vacuum for the Templar leader to fill.]]

* ''VideoGame/Injustice2'' is about a three-way conflict between [[BigGood Batman]] and his allies against [[FallenHero Superman]] and [[KnightTemplar the Regime's]] remnants against [[DiabolicalMastermind Gorilla Grodd's]] LegionOfDoom. The fight comes to a halt the moment Brainiac shows up with the intention of destroying Earth, believing it to be compromised after the Regime's downfall. As such he is a threat not only to the heroes, but to everyone else including villains that have their own agendas and nothing to gain from their world being destroyed.

* Early in ''Videogame/ClashAtDemonhead'', you have an [[FinalBossPreview inconclusive fight]] with Tom Guycot, the [[BigBad apparent boss of the terrorist organization you're trying to defeat]]. About halfway through the game during a seemingly-unimportant sidequest, the player character is [[NiceJobBreakingItHero tricked into releasing a demon]]. Said demon promptly [[HopelessBossFight clobbers him]] and kills Guycot, forcing the player to go on a quest for a [[SwordOfPlotAdvancement magic sword]] to kill the demon. You'd think the demon would then take over the plot, but in a weird subversion, you just kill it with the sword, [[spoiler: destroy it's eggs,]] then go right back to fighting terrorists. The FinalBoss is [[TheManBehindTheMan the guy who was giving Guycot orders]].

* The Water Seven storyline of ''Manga/OnePiece'' seems to set up Franky as that arc's big bad by having him and his goons beat Usopp to a bloody pulp. The Strawhats vow revenge and tear Franky's henchmen a new one, causing HIM to swear vengeance in turn...it all seems to be leading up to a big showdown between Franky and Luffy, until the WhamEpisode which turns the plot on its head leaves our heroes with much, much bigger problems to worry about. Franky does a HeelFaceTurn and proves to be far more interesting as a good guy, anyway. And ultimately ends up joining the crew.

* ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' has what looks like a final conflict brewing between the Light Warriors and the Dark Warriors; but then the Other Warriors show up because they want to kill the Light Warriors too; but '''then''', the Fiends show up to kill the Light Warriors as well, so they look like the {{Big Bad}}s; but [+'''then'''+] Black Mage [[{{Anticlimax}} anticlimactically]] absorbs their power for himself which makes it seem as if he is the BigBad; but [++'''then'''++] Sarda reveals himself as the BigBad, (although he ''actually'' claims that the Light Warriors themselves are the {{BigBad}}s); but [++'''''finally'''''++] Sarda [[PhlebotinumOverload blows up due to absorbing too much power]], and becomes a portal for Chaos' who is the '''actual''' BigBad. All in all there are five Conflict Killer moments in succession at the end of the comic.

* Piccolo and Son Goku's rivalry in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' effectively ends when the arrival of Raditz, Nappa, and Vegeta force Piccolo into a HeelFaceTurn. Vegeta himself shortly afterwards teams up with the heroes to take on Frieza and the Ginyu Force.
** Also, Cell, who was introduced shortly after the androids were introduced, ends up becoming the BigBad of the arc. His case is more unique in that he establishes himself by absorbing the androids to get them out of the way and power himself up, rather than the androids making a HeelFaceTurn to fight him with the heroes (although that does happen after they manage to make Cell regurgitate one of the androids).
