* Subverted in ''VideoGame/NinjaPizzaGirl''. When encountering her first enemy mook, Gemma seems to expect that they'll be this, treating each other with professional courtesy and respect despite working for competing pizza companies. Sadly, the enemy mooks are a bunch of [[JerkAss Jerk Asses]] who go out of their way to be as awful to Gemma as possible.

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': Miss Brooks and Mr. Conklin often kvetch about being the bane of one other's existence. However, depending on their goals, they'll either be working together on friendly terms ("Citizen's League", "Two-way Stretch Snodgrass", "Postage Due"), helping one another ("Cure That Habit", "The Hobby Show"), socializing with one another ("Parlor Game" and "The Birthday Bag") . . . or at loggerheads as if they were sworn enemies ("Old Marblehead", "Business Course", "Secondhand First Aid").

** Larry Bird and Magic Johnson started off as rivals when they met in the 1979 NCAA championship game and that continued into the NBA as they met several times in the NBA Finals. However, the two of them developed a friendship after shooting a commercial together in the early 1980's and have remained close friends since. When Johnson contracted HIV, Bird was one of the only people he told before announcing it in a press conference and Bird offered him complete support. Later on, Johnson convinced Bird to join him on the 1992 Dream Team so they could play on the same team together for one time. They also worked with each other on a book about their relationship released in 2009.2009 that was eventually adapted into a Broadway play.

* [[WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck Paperinik]] (both in the classic stories and in ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'') has developed this kind of relationship with the lesser criminals of Duckburg, with the typical scene being of Paperinik catching them in the act and say hello, having a little chat, and the thieves then picking up everything and going to the closest police station to let themselves be arrested. The really interesting part is ''how'' it developed: [[TheDreaded the criminals are utterly terrified of Paperinik due the sadistic beatings he inflicts on everyone who tries and resists]], but as he's also polite and nice when they're not committing crimes or resisting they started giving up as soon as he shows up, resulting in this strange friendship. He'll also defend them when some newcomer butts in and hurts the criminals unnecessarily

** In PKNA he and the Raider who rarely ever gets into direct conflict with Donald. In fact, he's more like a criminal that Donald has to ally himself with from time to time than an outright enemy.

* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'':
** One interpretation of Zim and Dib's relationship is this given the unfinished episode where they were both miserable without each other. This trope is at its most overt in the Pilot where Dib cheerfully compliments Zim's plan and Zim graciously thanks him for it, though shades of it sometime show up throughout the rest of the series (such as Zim prefacing the explanation of [[MyBrilliantEvilPlan his brilliant, evil plan]] to Dib in "A Room With a Moose" by saying that [[WorthyOpponent Dib is the only one smart enough to really appreciate it]]).
