* A fair number of ''Franchise/KamenRider'' shows have this be involved in the process of turning an initially-antagonistic secondary Rider into an ally, but ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' is the only one to do this to virtually ''everyone'' he fights. [[UpToEleven Even the final boss.]]

* An interesting case happens in ''Series/Babylon5'' between Neroon and Marcus. When Neroon is rebuffed by Delenn upon his demand to lead the Rangers instead of her, he vows to stop her appointment [[DeadlyEuphemism "by any means necessary"]]. While on his way to do the deed, he is confronted by Marcus who invokes Denn-shah (combat to the death). While Marcus is a highly competent fighter himself, Neroon on the other hand is a legendary and merciless warrior who claims to have killed more than 50,000 humans in the Earth/Minbari war. In the CurbStompBattle that ensues, Marcus refuses to yield even when soundly beaten, [[HeroicSacrifice and braces himself for the killing blow]]. It never comes, and Neroon concedes to Delenn she is more worthy of leading the Rangers, because they would not hesitate to die for her while they would for him. He respectfully visits Marcus in the infirmary later, and confesses, "one warrior to another", that the victory belonged to Marcus, not to him.

* UsefulNotes/JulieDAubigny was a noted duelist, and one of her opponents was Louis-Joseph d'Albert Luynes. Not only did she win the duel, she ran her sword through his ''shoulder''. However, while in recovery, d'Albert sent one of his companions to apologize to Julie on his behalf, so she went to visit him. [[CrossesTheLineTwice And then hooked up with him]]. Despite their on-off sexual relationship, the two were actually quite good friends after that, and remained so until Julie died.
