* Happened a lot of times in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'':
** In part 3 Kakyoin and Polnareff joined the team after heroes defeated them (mostly beacause they take out [[BrainwashedAndCrazy mind-controlling flesh buds, implanted in their brains by the villain]]. Also technically applies to a main character as well.
** Several antagonists in Part 4.
** In Part 6 Foo Fighters became major ally, after Jolyne decided to save her life after defeating her. Could also be said about [[StarterVillain Gwess]], even though she was simply scared into submission.
** In Part 8 both Daiya and Tsurugi tried to use their powers to force main characters (Josuke and Yasuho respectively)into submission, because they have a crush on them and both in the end were taught a lesson and beacame allies.

* Subverted in Dorothy Dunnett's ''King Hereafter.'' Thorfinn tries this repeatedly on Rognvald, who always behaves for a while and then reverts to form. [[spoiler: Eventually, Thorfinn's foster-father Thorkel [[OffWithHisHead loses patience]], which is TruthInTelevision.]]

* Happens a lot in ProfessionalWrestling, as well; for example, this was the impetus for Wrestling/AJStyles and Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels to form a tag team and go after the Wrestling/{{N|ational Wrestling Alliance}}WA Tag Team Championship. Usually comes with a HeelFaceTurn for the {{heel}} side of the previous rivalry, though the opposite happens occasionally. This happened again with Wrestling/ChrisJericho after coming to Wrestling/WWE, and he learned to sacrifice for the team.

Added DiffLines:

* After Wrestling/CMPunk successfully defended the Wrestling/RingOfHonor tag team titles against Dixie and [[Wrestling/JayLethal Hydro]] by himself at ''Survival Of The Fittest'', Hydro challenged Punk to a one on one rematch to redeem himself...and shook Punk's hand when accepted, a sign of the {{code|ofhonor}} Hydro's stable, Special K, were otherwise against.

* Invoked and averted in ''Fanfic/{{Quicken}}''. After defeating super-villain Cricket, Emma knows that they’re NOT are going to become friends later on.
-->This wasn't some Saturday morning cartoon; we weren't going to come to some kind of mutual understanding, enter as enemies, leave as friends. She had given her best to see me dead. It was always going to come down to either me or her.

** Many of the Pokémon the characters capture only agree to join them after they prove themselves by beating and catching the Pokémon in a battle. Main character Ash Ketchum had to earn the obedience of Pokémon like Bulbasaur, Snorunt, Treecko, and many more this way, even after he'd already befriended them.
** And then there are the Pokémon who are just plain ''hostile'' and only become friendly after the characters have beaten and captured them. Ash only befriended Pidgeotto, Krabby, Muk, Corphish, and several other Pokémon after he'd beaten them up and caught them in a Poké Ball.

** In general, the series likes to mix {{Anti Villain}}s with truly irredeemable ones. AlwaysChaoticEvil villains like [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Precia Testarossa]], [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs NachtWal]], [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers Jail Scaglietti and Quattro]] or ''[[MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce Hades Vandein]]'' are destroyed or imprisoned ([[MookFaceTurn often with the help of their former subordinates]]), but would not undergo a HeelFaceTurn themselves.
