** [[RedOniBlueOni Vegeta And Goku]], from ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. When these two team up, there's very little that can stand in their way for long. And the result of their FusionDance... let's just say that he is able to (literally) [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu punch out]] {{Cosmic Horror}}s, upon which nobody could land a hit before.

** Also Goku and Piccolo, who put aside previous grievances (YouKilledMyFather) to take down Raditz. And by the end of the Raditz fight, Piccolo has gone from wanting Goku dead to trying to talk Goku down from his suicidal plan. And then upon learning of the threat posed by Vegeta, he even ends up training Goku's kid!

* Americans and Russians VS Germany in WW2. Many WW2 veterans and historians often cite the result of this trope as the reason for Germany's defeat being inevitable after 1941. Interestingly enough, the two superpowers would pull off this trope again InSpace via the International Space Station. In fact, there's a rather surprising degree of cooperation amongst rivals (and even allies) in space programs; considering the nature of space operations, though, this strategy is extremely successful.
* ''Website/{{Cracked}}'''s [[http://www.cracked.com/article_20195_the-5-most-insane-teams-in-history-sports.html The 5 Most Insane Teams in the History of Sports]] calls the Steagles, an alliance of longtime rival NFL teams from Pennsylvania when most of their regular players were drafted to fight WorldWarII, "too stupid even for a sports movie".

* This used to be a common plot in the territorial days of wrestling. Take two guys known for wrestling each other in another territory and bring them into your own as a {{tag team}}. An example in a later era would be Air Paris and [[Wrestling/AJStyles Air Styles]], two wrestlers Wrestling/{{WCW}} acknowledged were enemies beforehand bu were willing to put that aside for the oh so lucrative WCW contracts.[[/folder]]

* It remains pretty common on the independent circuit, such as Sinn Bodhi openly referring to Techno Destructo not only as a rival but as as his ArchNemesis, still putting that aside because tag team matches in Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA Vendetta were more important.

* The rival scientists Piero Joplin and Anton Sokolov spend most of ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'' throwing jabs at each other, but after [[spoiler:the Loyalists betray and abandon them (well, mostly Piero, as Sokolov was technically their captive) to their deaths]], the two quickly put their minds together and jury-rig a new arc pylon model capable of incinerating ''or'' knocking out all hostiles in the area (while sparing them and Corvo), and, in the Low Chaos ending, continue their collaboration to invent a cure for the rat plague, too.
