* ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' features the eponymous hero and Julius Caesar. Though the two of them are enemies--Asterix wants to keep the UndefeatableLittleVillage free of Roman rule and Caesar would like nothing better than to finally crush them and get that thorn out of his side--they have had several encounters where the two are functionally friendly to each other. Asterix treats Caesar with irreverent cordiality, which annoys Caesar to no end... yet privately Caesar still often finds himself admitting [[TakeThat it's still better than dealing with the Senate]].

* Before [[spoiler:his demise]], Matador, AKA Colonel Juan Samuel Pererya, was quite amiable with Shadowland member Winter Rat, who was on the payroll of the Winter Systems MegaCorp. The two had fought several times in the past but were on quite good terms--they even took to betting on where would be the next place they'd face each other again.

This is in stark contrast to the undying, spiteful enmity between people like Neon Samurai and Nightfire.

* Max Schmeling and Joe Louis, two boxers of the 1930s, the former German and the latter African-American duked out the world championship between them twice and despite the media of both sides (especially NaziGermany) trying to blow the fight up to some political symbol became livelong friends and Schmeling is even on record as saying he was glad to have lost the second bout, given the UnfortunateImplications his win would have enabled the Nazis to get away with.

Added DiffLines:

* Despite all the hype around the Creator/PeytonManning and Creator/TomBrady rivalry, the two never displayed anything but respect for each other and were able to acknowledge the genuine talent of the other (silly GOAT[[note]]Greatest of All Time [[/note]] debates perpetrated mostly by the media and FanDumb aside) throughout their careers. The fact that the two never actually are on the field at the same time and could not physically hurt each other may have contributed to that.

Added DiffLines:

* German politics is ripe with this, though until quite recently many of the private goings on of politicians ''stayed'' private, the media having a "gentleman's agreement" to not report on extramarital affairs or the likes. Some well known friendships or at least mutual respect across political chasms are Willy Brandt's (SPD, from North Germany) eulogy for Franz Josef Strauß (CSU, from Bavaria) or the fabled "Pizza connection" between young backbenchers of the CDU and the Greens at a time when the two parties would publicly call each other Stalinist and Fascist respectively. Overall the discourse of political debate may get harsh at times, but never to a point to make reconciliation impossible - almost any conceivable coalition has happened already and the "sworn enemy" of yesteryear may end up the coalition partner after the next election and vice versa. Konrad Adenauer also had a communist friend from his days in a Nazi concentration camp and later credited him with saving his life. Adenauer also got along splendidly with Ben Gurion when any sort of diplomatic relations between Israel and Germany were mutually unthinkable on both sides.

** ''TalesOfVesperia'' has [[spoiler:Duke]], who actually helps Yuri and the gang a few times in their quests. After the final battle, they persuade him that humanity can change, and he helps them [[spoiler:destroy the Adephagos using Dein Nomos]].

* ''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.

** One interesting case was the android trio of 16, 17, and 18. After 17 and 18 [[AIIsACrapshoot killed Dr. Gero]], which actually went hand in hand with Future Trunks's prophecy about their terror, they only went after Goku because it was in 16's programming to do so and the twins needed some entertainment. When 17 and 18 curbstomped the Z Fighters on a mountain road somewhere, they didn't kill them, but instead actually left Krillin standing (as he was too scared to jump in), told him to use the holy beans to heal the others, and offered to fight them again anytime they wanted. 16 actually didn't take part in this fight at all, as he would rather embrace his newfound love for nature rather than fight anyone not named Goku…until Cell showed up to absorb the twins. Then, they each had a gradual HeelFaceTurn, 16's being the most pronounced.

When asked why they were going after Goku when they were already free from Gero, 17 said he only wanted to ''beat'' (not kill) Goku, and only because [[BloodKnight it would be fun]]. 16 actually didn't take part in this fight at all, as he would rather embrace his newfound love for nature rather than fight anyone not named Goku…until Cell showed up to absorb the twins.

* In ''Literature/ThisImmortal'', Conrad and Hasan are quite friendly with each other, chatting at the campfire and such, despite trying to protect and kill Myshtigo, respectively, and being aware of the other's goal.
