* 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]]).

* Suigintou joins up with Shinku in the manga reboot of ''RozenMaiden'' to defeat the threat of Kirakishou. It still turns out inefficient as they are still not powerful enough to take on her.

* Creator/{{Sega}} and Creator/{{Nintendo}} were huge rivals in the 16-bit days, the most remember of the great UsefulNotes/ConsoleWars in recent gaming history. However, Sega hit a sharp decline with two failed UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis add-ons (the Sega CD and the 32X), only made worse by the failure of their successor system the UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn. Then what seemed like a grand comeback with the UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast (fondly remembered to this day even with some non-fans) unfortunately wasn't enough to pull Sega out of the hole it was in, as well as the massive looming shadow of the {{PlayStation 2}} was the death-knell for the former giant who then was forced to go exclusively third party. Much was made of Sega having to bury its hatchets, none more famously than the one it had with Nintendo, who luckily was perfectly fine with the idea of joining forces.

** The best of this probably culminated when Sonic made his debut on ''SuperSmashBrosBrawl''. Now fans of both the Blue Blur and the Plumber-formerly-known-as-Jumpman could settle the gauntlet ''or'' tag team and kick ass.

* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' has many rivals and has teamed up with them on occasions. First, it was [[VideoGame/Sonic3andKnuckles Knuckles]]. Then later, [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 Shadow]]. Then it was [[VideoGame/SonicRush Blaze]], and then [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Silver]] (who earlier in the game plays this with Shadow, who ironically fought the white hedgehog mere seconds before due to him attacking Sonic in the first place.)

* One episode of ''Manga/{{Freezing}}'' sees Satellizer and Rana tricked into fighting each other over Kazuya. When Rana learns that Kazuya genuinely cares for Satellizer, she relents, then decides to fight by Satellizer's side when two of the upperclassmen decide to finish her off.



* Kal Zakath joins Belgarion's companions midway through ''TheMalloreon'', even though he spent ''Literature/TheBelgariad'' and the first part of ''TheMalloreon'' trying to stop him.
* Gentleman Johnnie Marcone teams up with Harry Dresden in ''White Night'', book nine of {{The Dresden Files}} while fighting ghouls in a natural {{Elaborate Underground Base}} owned by the White Court.

* The oldest example is probably from ''SpaceRunawayIdeon'', where [[spoiler:Gije]] spends most of the time hunting Ideon down, then is abandoned, captured by the Solo crew, and eventually allowed to co-pilot Ideon with [[TheHero Cosmo]] and [[ActionGirl Kasha]].
* ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' parallels the above in [[spoiler:Viral's]] case, as he is the only [[spoiler:non-Spiral being to ever pilot Gurren Lagann, the very mech that brought about his eternal dishonor.]]
