* Played with in the Creator/MarvelComics event ''ComicBook/ActsOfVengeance''. Loki gathers together some of the great supervillains of the world ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and the Wizard]]) as part of his plot to destroy the Avengers. This involves putting the Red Skull (epic Nazi) in the same room as the Mandarin (Chinese), Doctor Doom (Romani), and Magneto (Jewish). They start out insulting each other, and eventually Magneto [[SealedRoomInTheMiddleOfNowhere seals the Skull in a windowless room]] with no particular plans to let him out. Turns out that Loki both expected and intended this.

* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'' subverts this with the Negative 10: Acid Breath has a problem with Driscoll being in charge because he gave Sublimino authority over the Circus Freaks and there's a definite rivalry between Rojo and Charmcaster. [[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce the]] [[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien sequels]] [[WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse]] also subvert this, revealing that the Forever Knights are divided into several factions with different motives: some want to TakeOverTheWorld, some have FantasticRacism against aliens and some are led by a WellIntentionedExtremist who want to stop an EldritchAbomination from destroying everything.

** Averted in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' proper, however. While some of the evil-as-opposed-to-simply-very-ruthless groups can ally together fairly well (Chaos Marines, for example, play nicely with Daemons, and to a lesser extent Orks), Necrons don't like Daemons, Dark Eldar play better with Craftworld Eldar than anyone else, and Tyranids don't get along with ''anyone'' - their entire section of the alliances chart only stopped being "No" when Comes the Apocalypse was tweaked to mean you could bring them, but they couldn't start within 12" of each other and it was a good idea to keep them separate.

* In the JamesBond novels, bad guys of radically different ideologies have no trouble working together. At the apex of this is SPECTRE, which is headed by members from both Eastern European secret police and the Mafia, not to mention former Soviets and Nazis. How exactly did Blofeld manage that?

* Comically averted in ComicBooks/{{Chew}}; a villain holds a shindig and invites bad guys from various backgrounds, but they get on each others nerves.

-->'''Thug''': The Marilyns and the Kings don't seem to like each other too much. Toss up between who's creepier, the Satanists or the Nazis. And those damn Civil War re-enactors waving their muskets around at everybody...

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]] [[EvilRunsInTheFamily actual families that are evil]], or [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes some specific evil characters being like a family to each other]], or [[TheFamilyForTheWholeFamily this particular family]].
