* Aziraphale and Crowley (an angel and a demon, respectively) in ''Literature/GoodOmens''. This developed in their backstory, centuries before the timeframe of the novel, and by the time we meet them, they are [[OddCouple best friends]] (despite still technically working for heaven and hell, respectively).

** On a lesser note, Captain Demos of the ''Slive'', slaver, smuggler, pirate and all-round ne'er-do-well, comments on ho much he loves pulling occasional side-jobs for the [[SecretPolice Cursors]]. Apparently, the Cursors pay well and hardly ever [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness try to kill him when he's done.]]

* Spartacus acts like this towards [[Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar Julius Caesar]] in ''Emperor: The Death of Kings''. They first meet when Crixus and Brutus independently have the idea of looking over the other camp by climbing to the top of a big rock, and while the other three constantly look for an opportunity to off the others, Spartacus enjoys a pleasant chat.

* 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.

* Creator/AmazonStudios and Creator/Netflix: While both Amazon and Netflix have competing streaming services, and both are becoming heavy-hitters in distributing original content and bidding for films, Netflix recently [[http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2016/02/netflix-finishes-its-massive-migration-to-the-amazon-cloud/ moved]] all data center operations for the streaming service (except for content delivery, which is housed in Netflix-maintained boxes throughout the Internet backbone providers) onto ''Amazon's'' cloud services. Only the DVD rental business still uses a physical data center. And to top it off, Amazon Studios actually went worldwide 11 months later, which many see as a in a bid to play catch up with Netflix.
