* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders'' plays with this with the D'Arby brothers. In a series that practically lives and breathes HotBlooded, with most villains being dealt with in the most violent manner possible, these two decide to... gamble and play video games with the heroes instead. However, it's subverted since these are still most definitely not friendly matches, with the loser's soul on the line. [[spoiler:And they both cheat, anyway.]] Still, it's probably the only time in the whole series that a villain is defeated without being physically fought, though [[spoiler:Jotaro still pummels the second one after he wins their match. The first one didn't need pummelling, since Jotaro bluffed ''so hard'' during his poker game that it actually made D'Arby ''pass out''.]]

* ''VideoGame/MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympicGames'' features both Bowser, and Robotnik/Eggman participating fairly in the olympics.

to:

** In the two-player mode of ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', Sonic can have a friendly race with Shadow and Metal Sonic. He can also actually go go-karting with Shadow (but not with Metal Sonic, since he's not selectable in that mode). Even more, Amy can also race against Metal Sonic, despite the fact she should have every reason to hate him given that he's the one who kidnapped her back in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogCD''.

** Creator/{{Sega}} themselves [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] this during the second annual Sonic Website/{{Twitter}} takeover (itself an example of this trope, with Sonic and Eggman answering fan-tweeted questions together). Creator/{{Sega}} asked them "Do you guys hang out a lot or are you actually [[FriendlyEnemy frenemies]]?" Eggman's response is to [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial loudly and emphatically declare "We're ''enemies''! MORTAL enemies!"]], then [[IResembleThatRemark offer to get Sonic a leftover]] [[TrademarkFavoriteFood chili dog]] [[IResembleThatRemark from the fridge.]]
** The third Sonic Website/{{Twitter}} had [[TheRival Shadow]] answering questions along with Sonic and Eggman.
** This has happened with Shadow in the games a few times too - though Shadow is more of TheRival than a villain, he and Sonic tend to be enemies most of the time (or at least, he really doesn't like Sonic). However, he teams up with Sonic or Tails in various levels in ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'', races with the others in the various spin-off racing games, and appears at Sonic's birthday party in the ending to ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations''. He also shows up before the FinalBoss to give both Sonics some words of motivation, and gives them advice during the actual battle along with the other characters.

** This kind of relationship is also shown between Bowser and Princess Peach at times. The Japanese version of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioKart'' includes a cutscene showing Princess Peach and Bowser drinking champagne together (which was cut from the American version due to depictions of alcohol). Though, as Danny of ''WebVideo/GameGrumps'' pointed out, that doesn't necessarily mean they're friends.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', sort of. There are several cast posters floating around that depict the ''entire'' cast posing for a picture. Including villains like Discord.

** Phoenix has a [[SpotOfTea Spot of t... coffee]] with Godot, right after the end of their last trial together in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations''. Also, Apollo and Trucy went together to Klavier Gavin's concert in ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney''. That said, Trucy ''is'' (or had rather become) a huge fan of Gavin's band, and Apollo was never really that hostile towards Klavier anyway -- he just doesn't like the loud music. On the other hand, Ema Skye would rather have coated her left arm in Snackoos and eaten it than wind up running security for the gig out of her personal loathing for Gavin, and makes this sentiment loud and clear when she meets up with Apollo backstage.

* ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi'' zig-zags this: It's played straight in Episode 3 of Season 2, with the heroes and villains competing in a soccer game ([[spoiler:or at least trying to, until Mercury blew up the ball by accident]]); downplayed when it comes to [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter Ruby]] and [[ObviouslyEvil Cinder]] since the former doesn't know the latter is evil but Cinder behaves nicely towards her and wants to hang out with her (though probably for evil purposes) and subverted in [[spoiler: Episode 22 of Season 2, where the villains formed a music band for a "Battle of the bands" competition and were there to play music with no evil intent...until it turned out it was ''[[LiteralMinded a literal battle]]'' and the heroes and villains had to engage in a fight]].



* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' and Shego seem to mutually respect each other, despite their normal levels of animosity. They've been known to chat in the middle of fights. In the episode "Sick Day" Kim and Shego, who were both suffering from colds, sneezed at the same time and said, "Bless you," before resuming the fight.



** There is also the end of "The Good Jack," in which Jeff - a dragon who just went ballistic and breathed fire at people - has a little music jam session with our hero Henri of Orange. Turns out the fire-breathing dragon plays a mean bongo. :)

** A good example is "The Truce Hurts", even though it is short-lived, in which Tom and Jerry, as well as Spike, put their differences aside and get along with each, only to once again be mortal enemies by the end of the cartoon over a beef that each tries to divide with the lion's share for himself.

** In "WesternAnimation/BlueCatBlues", Jerry describes himself and Tom as "the best of friends", until the latter started ignoring the former over a cat girl who eventually ditched him for a rich cat. The episode ends with them ''attempting suicide together'' because the same thing ended up happening to Jerry.

* An Creator/ElliotSMaggin ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' story has ComicBook/LexLuthor always escaping on a certain date each year; eventually Superman figures out he's trying to celebrate the birthday of UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein, one of his heroes. Superman arranges for himself and Luthor to have a private tour of the Einstein section of the Smithsonian. Luthor actually tears up as he sees the statue. As Luthor is taken back to jail he tells Superman, "Thanks for everything!" Definitely a [[Heartwarming/{{Superman}} Crowning Moment of Heartwarming]].

** In a more canonical example, in the ''very first scene'' after branching onto Kohaku's route in the original visual novel, Shiki, the main hero, meets the BigBad who's his former childhood friend who became a SoulJar for the GreaterScopeVillain and is a serial killer/vampire/cannibal, [[spoiler:and has coffee with him on a park bench while discussing life and how they both fit into the world, and joking with each other like friends]].

* [[WesternAnimation/{{Pete}} Pegleg Pete]] (a.k.a. Black Pete, Big Bad Pete, Perilous Pete, Putrid Pete) has this relationship with the rest of the core Mickey Mouse FunnyAnimal crew. At times he's a genial but gruff neighbor, at other times he's a gigantic hulking gangster. This was even true in the ''WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit'' days where he alternated between the role of a Bank Robber(''The Banker's Daughter''), or Oswald's homeless buddy(''Hungry Hoboes.)'' In a Christmas episode of ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse'', Minnie is threatened with mistletoe by Mortimer Mouse. Pete shows up, seemingly about to make the situation worse ([[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts in the old days]] his motives mainly revolved around kidnapping her for himself), when suddenly he swoops in and gives Mortimer a big smooch to scare him off. In what is both an entirely bizarre or an [[CrowningMomentofAwesome entirely awesome moment]], Minnie and Pete ''high-five each other''.
