* Used bafflingly in ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', when King George III shows up in ''The Reynolds Pamphlet'', making it rain the titular pamphlets alongside Thomas Jefferson. Considering that George doesn't even ''know'' Hamilton, let alone despise him to the lengths that Jefferson does, this is a little strange. The most plausible out-of-universe explanation is that the show was low on villains who could join Jefferson in his glee (Madison and Burr are just a little too serious), but no explanation is ever given for George's appearance.
** In a somewhat more subdued example, ''The Room Where It Happens'' centers around a dinner that Hamilton, Madison, and Jefferson have to discuss politics. While Hamilton and Madison and Jefferson weren't yet enemies (as shown in ''Washington on Your Side''), ''What'd I Miss'' and ''Cabinet Battle #1'' show that they weren't fond of each other. Somewhat justified in that Jefferson and Madison hate Hamilton on a ''professional'', not personal level: they immediately back off when they discover that Hamilton wasn't breaking the law in ''We Know'', they return to the stage misty eyed at the beginning of ''The Election of 1800'' following [[spoiler:Philip's death]], and they have (somewhat) kind words for him in ''Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story''.

** In Season 14 episode "Mr. Red and Mr. Blue", we learn that during in between the Blood Gulch Chronicles and The Reconstruction, Tucker would have a movie night and allow the Reds to take part. Of course, as VIC says in his opening narration, by that point while the Reds and Blues were still enemies, they weren't really giving a damn anymore.

* UsefulNotes/UesugiKenshin and UsefulNotes/TakedaShingen, during the UsefulNotes/SengokuJidai in Japan, though it only happened once (if at all), and the rest of the time they only sent letters and exchanged valuable gifts while trying to outmaneuver one another in combat. At one time, Kenshin sent Shingen some much-needed salt (a valuable commodity in those days), expressing his chivalric opinion that "Wars are to be won with swords and spears, not with rice and salt." After Shingen's passing (which was mourned by Kenshin, who also refused to take the opportunity to attack, as his retainers urged him to) the two clans became allies against rising power OdaNobunaga.

MidBattleTeaBreak is a subtrope. Compare NonViolentInitialConfrontation, DatingCatwoman. Contrast VillainOverForDinner. If the enemies happen to be deities as well, it's GodKartingWithBeelzebub. If, rather than Go Karting With Bowser, you're instead playing EnergyBall tennis [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime with Ganondorf]], that's TennisBoss.

* The premise of ''[[Roleplay/ChroniclesOfTheGods A Game of Gods: Nemesis]]'' is that of a RealityShow where two teams, consisting of heroes and villains, compete against each other on missions but are forced to share the same living premises between the challenges. Naturally, it leads to a lot of tension, but sometimes opposing competitors are able to forget their differences and participate in something fun together. For example, at the end of Day 1, Franchise/{{Superman}} and Franchise/{{Spiderman}} join [[Manga/{{Hellsign}] Jan Valentine]] in watching a movie.

* The relationship between Mike/Joel and Dr. Clayton Forrester, TV's Frank, and/or Pearl Forrester in ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. In between attempts to perfect a psychological weapon that will bring humanity to its knees (and using Joel or Mike as their guinea pig), they exchange news, joke around and - on occasion - have a beer.
** Mike and Pearl seemed to have more of these moments, as in one episode where they have a very pleasant conversation (which she ends with a half-hearted "I'll destroy you and conquer the world" speech that trails off before she chuckles and says "He's a good kid") and in another [[SwappedRoles the two traded jobs]], and Mike, Observer and Professor Bobo end up playing cards and smoking cigars.
