* Done, kind of, in the PS3 game ''{{Lair}}'' in which the hero ends up joining his once-enemies mostly out of necessity, only to see that they are not the monsters his old kingdom made them out as.

* In ''{{Doonesbury}}'', B.D. becomes friends with Viet Cong member Phred. This comes as quite a shock to his fellow Americans, since B.D. was violently anti-Communist and had actually volunteered to fight in Vietnam.

* The argentinian Political Strip ''Boogie el aceitoso'' inverts this trope, when a jew soldier tells Boogie that when they were children, his best friend, a palestinian boy, swore friendship forever, so when the trenches were calm, they talked -screamed- about their lives, each one of them occult at his line. This was echoed by a lot of soldiers in both camps. However, the years passed, and the young soldiers did not have the chance to know each other, so they didn't talked to the enemy. The conclusion is that a long war dehumanizes people.

* During the first half of ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'''s third season, the point of view was frequently with the Cylons just as often as with the Colonials. As such, many ended up becoming sympathetic characters.

* During WorldWarI, Franco-British and German soldiers resisted a return to combat operations after fraternizing with each other during a Christmas cease-fire. ** Only for the event to be expressly denied in the contemporary French media. ''Much'' later it was dramatised in the rather excellent film ''JoyeuxNoel''.

** Zuko discovered the same in his journey through the Earth Kingdom, first hunting Aang and then as a fugitive. He'd bought into the propoganda that the purpose of the war was to share the Fire Nation's glory with the rest of the world. [[spoiler: This discovery is part of what prompts his HeelFaceTurn.]]

* ''{{Fringe}}''. While the alternate universe was initially portrayed as an unspecified threat, the end of the second season gave us the (rather understandable) reasons why and showed that "our" side wasn't so good after all. And finally, according to producers/actors, the whole point of season 3 was to make the alternate characters sympathetic to us.

-->'''Jono Renfield''': And I thought I was surrounded by black-hearted demons in the heart of Yamato. But here I find myself in Vanna, among ye honored personages of the Alliance and the Sultanate, shoulder to shoulder with simpering monsters willing to compromise morality for any edge in their damn war. The Vulfsatz, they're a death squad, soldiers. This sort of thing comes with the job. But in spite of his heritage, and your pants-wetting frights over him turning into the next Syndey or Arawn one day, Hannibal is a child. Separated from his mother. And you're willing to hand him to her enemy, have his life threatened in some cowardly attempt to cow her assault...and then what when she doesn't give in? Slit his throat? Move on to Plan B? If this is what the Grand Alliance has turned itself into in these many years...I'd rather go deal with the demons again. At least they don't fancy themselves heroes while bathing in the entrails of their enemies.
