* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' lore, this is averted by the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]]. While technically beings AboveGoodAndEvil who operate on their own BlueAndOrangeMorality, the majority of them are considered "evil" by the average denizens of Tamriel. Despite this, most of the Princes ''despise'' each other. Two of the most malevolent, Molag Bal (Daedric Prince of [[GodOfEvil Domination]] and [[TheCorrupter Corruption]]) and Boethiah (Daedric Prince of [[ManipulativeBastard Plots]] and [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Betrayal]]) ''can't stand'' one another and often have their worshipers working against each other every chance they get. Likewise, Molag Bal doesn't get along well with Mehrunes Dagon (Daedric Prince of [[DestroyerDeity Destruction]]) either.

** Played straight by the Dark Brotherhood, an illegal [[MurderInc organization of assassins]] whose membership mostly takes a [[PsychoForHire sadistic glee]] in killing and who practice a ReligionOfEvil. They may be assassins, but they do consider themselves ''family''.

Added DiffLines:

* ComicBook/TheFlash has a wide enough range of villains that there are cross purposes in battling, but his most persistent supervillain team The Rogues has this, as despite them having a range of mental illnesses and problems, they end up functioning quite well together, held together by the good leadership of Captain Cold.

* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' is more "Evil Is One Big Loyal Conspiracy with a Common Goal." Nearly every major villain in the entire series is either a member of The Light or an agent of The Light. Some might be out of the loop, but generally they are all in alliance with one another to some extent. Even some of the villains who don't like each other (Sportsmaster and Cheshire; Icicle, Sr. and the Riddler) often turn out to be allies through their connections to The Light. As this is a series where even SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and ComicBook/LexLuthor are team players, it seems that The Light has managed to convince every supervillain on Earth to work together for their mutual benefit. Particularly notable that every single member is loyal enough that ''nobody'' has confessed any knowledge of The Light to an outside authority or otherwise betrayed The Light to any major degree.

Since most works other than video games aren't usually this naïve, there's no need to list straightforward {{aversion}}s. If evil characters are just working together because they specifically belong to the same faction or have a common goal (beyond being evil), that's not this. [[IThoughtItMeant Also doesn't mean actual families that are evil]], or [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes some specific evil characters being like a family to each other]], or [[TheFamilyForTheWholeFamily this particular family]].

** Orcks and chaos armies only hold together as long as the commander remains in charge and there are enemies to fight. For orks, this is easy as the one in charge is the biggest. For Chaos, which incorporates berserk lunatics, sadistic hedonists, plotting backstabbers and rotting death cultists, this is more problematic.
* Dark Eldar society is built on backstabbing and KlingonPromotion... except when they raid realspace, where they remain united and focused on the task at hand (when not in the Webway, they run the permanent risk of having their souls devoured for eternity by the Chaos god specializing in torture).

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', for the most part, has the rogues gallery all get along quite well and even get together to play poker on occasion, and of course they are more than willing to team up to take down their common foe Batman. Often averted with Two-Face, who has enemies in The Penguin, Rupert Thorne, and of course Poison Ivy: the one person both of his halves can agree they want to take her down for attempting to murder him first:
--> '''Two-Face:''' Half of me wants to strangle you.
--> '''Poison Ivy:''' Oh? And what does the other half want?
--> '''Two-Face:''' To hit you with a truck.
--> '''Poison Ivy:''' (To the others) We used to date.
* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' where the only time we saw two villains actually work together was with Tirek and Discord, and the former wasted no time backstabbing the latter the second he was no longer useful.
