** Their Comicbook/{{Ultimate|XMen}} incarnations, where, for the first few issues, Magneto is willing to kill Xavier if he could get the chance. Xavier is opposed to [[ThouShaltNotKill killing in general]] - not to killing Magneto ''per se''. Their ''relationship'' ended in {{Ultimatum}}... where [[spoiler: Magneto broke the Professor's neck with his bare hand]].

* ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'': In the "Secret of Revan" chapter, Lana Beniko (a rational, honest Sith) can be this for Republic characters, as can Tharon Shan (a pragmatic, somewhat ruthless Republic spy) for Imperials. It can also take on a DatingCatwoman scenario. Neither one is willing to turn away from their faction, which technically makes them an enemy, but it's very hard not to like them and you ''are'' working against someone who's even worse, so EnemyMine is in play.

** During said expansion, Darth Marr (the de-facto leader of the Empire at that point) and Satele Shan (the head of the Jedi Council) cooperate surprisingly well for the most part, to the point that in the ''Knights of the Fallen Empire'' expansion, [[spoiler:Marr's force ghost accompanies Satele as she wanders the galaxy]].

Over the years, a [[TheHero Hero]] and his nemesis will share trials, failures, and successes at each other's hands, each becoming enormously important in the other's life and more intimate (not ''[[FoeYay that]]'' kinda intimate! ...[[DatingCatwoman Well]], [[RuleThirtyFour sometimes]]) than many [[TrueCompanions best friends]]. Over the course of a series' many {{Story Arc}}s, the two will develop a grudging respect for them as a WorthyOpponent. It can sometimes grow to the point that the villain will refrain from [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim killing the hero]] in a "cheap" or dishonorable way, and even start to concoct bizarre excuses to avoid doing so entirely, [[YouWillBeSpared spare his life]], or ''[[IWasJustPassingThrough even saving him]]''. In these cases, the hero and villain are very likely to become [[EnemyMine Strange Bedfellows]] to beat a new villain who doesn't play by the rules, which may lead to {{Fire Forged Friends}}hip. Sometimes, the villain will decide to admit to the friendship and perform a full HeelFaceTurn. If another villain kills the hero, this one may make sure that the hero doesn't [[DyingAlone die alone]], and the hero will do the same for him.

* ''FanFic/ThisBites'': As in canon, Tashigi and Smoker are this for the Straw Hats, [[spoiler:as is Hina after she throws in her lot with the former two to bring down the World Government, forming the organization Marine Integrity 3, or [=MI3=] for short. In Chapter 30, Captain T-Bone joins the party, making the organization [=MI4=]. After the events at Omatsuri Island, Vice Admiral Jonathan joins, making the organization [=MI5=]. And in Chapter 40, Vice Admiral Tsuru joins, making the organization [=MI6=].]]
** Vice Admiral Jonathan stays friendly with the Straw Hats, Cross in particular, throughout their confrontation. Upon losing, his only reaction is to respectfully acknowledge their success. [[spoiler:It stays this way when he joins Marine Integrity as well, making it [=MI5=].]]

* While not exactly friendly, [[BadAss Guts]] from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' and [[EvilCounterpart Nosferatu Zodd]] has shades of this, in addition to being [[WorthyOpponent worthy opponents]] to eachother. This is most likely because Zodd is the only notable long-running apostle in the series that has yet to do anything Guts would consider a truly [[ItsPersonal personal attack]], and most of Zodd's motivation for fighting Guts is simply because he [[BloodKnight likes to fight]], and Guts has proven that he gives as good as he gets. Zodd doesn't seem to be that high up on Guts shit-list either, since their interactions have mainly been straight up fights, and circumstantial at that, not personal or attempts at [[MindRape psychological torture and taunting]], like many, many other apostles have tried and failed. He even compliments Guts on occasion, praising his sword and technique. Zodd did not participate in [[spoiler:the Eclipse ceremony]] preferring instead to remain outside, [[spoiler:fighting the Skull Knight]] because that was far more fun. Lampshaded by the psychic Sonia at one point, where she predicts that Zodd must choose to either fight or [[EnemyMine cooperate]] with [[WorthyOpponent "the one he admires"]]. In the same fight, Zodd actually stops the apostles with him from attacking/killing a heavily injured and exhausted Guts, claiming they are there as warriors, and stating to Guts that their fight is on hold for now. He also gives Guts what seems to be a genuine smile as he is about to leave, giving the impression of being a literal NobleDemon. Although, this could simply be a case of [[TheOnlyOneAllowedtoDefeatYou extreme rivalry/bloodknight tendencies,]] which Zodd takes pretty damn seriously. Of course, because Zodd is an apostle, thus automatically sentenced to death in Guts' mind, and in addition serves as [[spoiler:[[BigBad Griffith's]]]] [[TheDragon dragon]], Guts is most likely never going to consider him anything but a WorthyOpponent at best, so this could turn out to be one-sided. And because both of them have massive [[BloodKnight blood knight personalities]], they will most likely never stop fighting or trying to genuinely kill the other.

* Hugo and Jake of The Bible Reloaded have a complicated relationship with Ray Comfort. Initially, his company DMCAed one of their videos critical of his work. Later, Comfort sent them an apology giftbasket, claiming he had nothing to do with the illegitimate DMCA. Later still, he sent out a passive-aggressive tweet, challenging them to review his latest movie. This led to two to suspect he was attempting to invoke NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity.
