* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'': Zidane and Kuja have a moment of this after [[spoiler: Kuja saves the team from the collapsing Memoria and Iifa Tree and Zidane decides to stay to save Kuja from the depths of the Iifa Tree]]. Then again, they are [[spoiler: brothers]] and this brief moment of friendliness doesn't continue in their appearances in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy''. Though that can be explained as having most of their memories wiped.

It's revealed in the prequel game ''Duodecim 012'' that, in the previous cycle of conflict, Kuja, despite having been chosen by Chaos, actually wanted to help Zidane and his friends. [[spoiler:He masqueraded as having been chosen as one of Cosmos' warriors, and that he was acting as a mole within Chaos' ranks. Kefka caught wind of this and engineered a plot to get Kuja outed as a Chaos warrior in front of Zidane. Kuja, no longer able to proceed as he wanted, declared himself to have deceived Zidane, and was forced to fight against him. After the fact, Kefka used his magic to meddle with Kuja's memories so that, in the next cycle, he would have no memory of ever being in any way friendly with Zidane.]]

* In ''Film/ThePrincessBride'', the Man in Black and Inigo Montoya start off as this, merrily discussing fencing techniques and complimenting each other's swordsmanship during their duel. Of course, [[HeelFaceTurn the "Enemy" part doesn't last too long]].



* Theseus Spencer and Oberon Navarro are later portrayed this way in ''{{Literature/Alterien}}''. They gradually go from enemies to friendly rivals who are able to easily sit down with each other for a civil conversation.

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 usually]]) 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.

** In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', The Joker himself even lampshades this in "The Man Who Killed Batman" during a jewelry store robbery--he fully ''expects'' the Caped Crusader to show up and defeat him, describing their fights as "having some laughs." It's so severe that when the Joker mistakenly believes that Batman is dead, he tells his accomplice Harley Quinn to return the stolen jewels, becoming furious when Quinn thinks he's joking: "Without Batman, crime has no punchline."

* In the self-proclaimed role as the Red Panda's archnemesis, ''Podcast/RedPandaAdventures'' supervillain the Mad Monkey is generally quite friendly toward the Red Panda, even as he's trying to kill the mystery man. He's less cordial towards the Flying Squirrel, since he considers her an extra. As time goes on, the Mad Monkey's plots revolve more around fighting the Red Panda, and because, more often then otherwise, the Monkey doesn't put human life at serious risk, the Red Panda seems to reciprocate. At the end of "Stop the Presses", when the Red Panda is forced to let the Mad Monkey escape to capture all of Archangel's goons, he takes the time to make sure the Mad Monkey sees him waving his fist at him angrily.
