Added DiffLines:

* Attempted by Loki in the ''Acts of Vengeance'' crossover. It didn't work out well, most notably because a) [[WriterRevolt the writers were in open revolt]], and b) he neglected to consider the people he was trying to get to work together. In particular, putting ComicBook/{{Magneto}} (a Jewish Holocaust survivor who takes "never again" ''[[PayEvilUntoEvil very seriously]]'') and the ComicBook/RedSkull (an outspoken Nazi) in the same room was [[BuriedAlive a disaster waiting to happen, really]] ([[KickTheSonOfABitch at least from the Skull's perspective]] - most everyone else was rather impressed).

* The whole premise of the miniseries ''Comicbook/{{Wanted}}'' is that the villains ''don't'' fall to bickering and instead destroy all the heroes and take over the world. (It's only ''after'' the heroes are gone and they are the unequivocal masters of all the world that the infighting starts, mirroring some RealLife political coups by [[StrangeBedfellows politically expedient alliances]].)

* Media adaptations of the Comicbook/XMen have an annoying habit of grouping most X-Villains as members of the Brotherhood of (Evil) Mutants with ComicBook/{{Magneto}} as the leader, regardless of whether or not said villain ever had anything to do with the group in the comics (such as Comicbook/{{Sabretooth}}, Comicbook/EmmaFrost, and the Juggernaut, who's not even a mutant), or if they'd ever play second string to ''anyone'' (Comicbook/{{Mystique}}, who led her own version of the team and has never worked with Magneto). Bonus points if Comicbook/{{Quicksilver}} and Comicbook/ScarletWitch are still with the Brotherhood, even though they were with the Brotherhood against their will in the regular comics jumped ship as soon as they were able, and are more closely associated with ComicBook/TheAvengers than the X-Men these days. Funnily enough, Mystique and Sabretooth, the ones most likely to be on Magneto's side in these adaptations despite almost never being so in the comics, are still associated with ''another'' evil ComicBook/XMen team: [[MadScientist Mister Sinister]]'s Marauders, who are a lot less picky about who to team up with. Though he [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder probably won't be in any hurry to rehire Mystique anytime soon.]]

** In the ''[[Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderFourzeAndOOOMovieWarMegaMax Movie War]]'' {{crossover}} with ''Series/KamenRiderOOO'', Foundation X uses the research its agents gathered to build an army consisting of various {{monster|OfTheWeek}}s as well as mooks from the three series involved (''Fourze'', ''OOO'' and ''[[Series/KamenRiderDouble W]]''), alongside monsters of the BigBad's own design, called "Mutamids". They are not essentially the same monsters from their original series, but it's an excuse to reuse monster suits.
** In the ''[[Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderWizardAndFourzeMovieWarUltimatum Movie War]]'' between ''Fourze'' and ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'' there is Monster Army, which consists of revived [[Series/KamenRiderDouble Dopants]], [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Yummy]], [[Series/KamenRiderFourze Zodiarts]], and [[Series/KamenRiderWizard Phantoms]], led by Akumaizer3.

** The movies for the ''35th'' anniversary series do something similar - ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' is already a Decade-style-celebration, but its villains are the completely original Zangyack Empire. However, the [[Film/GokaigerGoseigerSuperSentai199HeroGreatBattle first movie]] involves said empire making an alliance with the Black Cross King, a revived [[PeopleInRubberSuits rubber suit]] form of the Black Cross [[NoSwastikas Fuhrer]] from ''Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger'', who in turn revives [[Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger Brajira]] and a number of villains from ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger'' and ''Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger''.
