The opposite of RivalTurnedEvil. Bear in mind, however, that TheRival may not always be evil. He or she may simply be an antagonist trying to one-up TheHero in doing good things. For generic cases of protagonist and antagonist (temporarily) teaming up against a common enemy, see EnemyMine.

TheRival joins forces with TheHero for whatever reason. Usually, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome much awesomeness ensues]] because basically, these two are the most badass guys in the entire story at this point (and God help you if they can perform a FusionDance). Can be both temporary (due to TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou sentiment, mentioned in BackToBackBadasses) and permanent (a HeelFaceTurn if TheRival previously served the evil side, especially when DefeatMeansFriendship or {{Fire Forged Friends}}hip ensues).

* Similar to Kira and Athrun are Lelouch and Suzaku in ''CodeGeass'' who team up on a few occasions throughout both seasons, despite becoming bitter enemies. In fact, Lelouch says many times that there isn't a single thing that they two cannot accomplish if they work together. [[spoiler:And they do, indeed, change the entire freaking world together.]] Also note that neither of them can really be called "TheHero".

* Miles Edgeworth from ''VideoGame/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney''.

to:

* Miles Edgeworth from ''VideoGame/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney''.becomes Phoenix Wright's unspoken ally fairly quickly (even before his official HeelFaceTurn) in ''VideoGame/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'', because he recognizes that the two of them working together are more effective at finding the ''real'' guilty party than either of them are alone.

* At least three characters from ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' function as TheRival to Kenichi, and given the rather [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism idealistic]] nature of the series... This doesn't always overlap with DefeatMeansFriendship ([[ThePowerOfFriendship an otherwise rather frequent occurrence]]).
