* Wilson Fisk, ComicBook/TheKingpin, was introduced as a Franchise/SpiderMan villain, and though Spidey still fights him on occasion, you'd be hard-pressed to say that the character is not best known for being a nemesis of ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}, taking the place of the Owl (who is a lot harder to take seriously) among his enemies. Referenced (but not used directly) in ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries''; Fisk is the BigBad for much of the show, but in the episode where Daredevil does appear, it's made very clear that for him, ItsPersonal, while for Spidey, it's more of your standard hero/villain thing. [[WordOfGod Greg Weisman]] says they wanted Kingpin to be one of the {{Big Bad}}s on ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'', but couldn't specifically because Sony only had the rights to ''Spider-Man'' characters and Kingpin was officially classified as a ''Daredevil'' character now.

* The ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' version of Comicbook/LexLuthor never interacts with {{Superman}} (though he retains his connection to {{Superboy}}). In fact, overall he comes comes off more as an [[Comicbook/GreenArrow Arrow Family]] villain--his first appearance sees him engaged in a XanatosGambit with [[spoiler:clone!]][[TheArcher Roy]], and he's eventually revealed to be behind [[spoiler:the capture of the original Roy Harper and creation of clone!Roy as a ManchurianAgent]].

* ComicBook/TheEnchantress is normally an enemy of Thor and/or The Avengers (she's been known to tangle with the Scarlet Witch on occasion), but she has branched out- at one point she became the arch-enemy of ComicBook/{{Dazzler}}, of all people;recent events have had her teaming up with the new Lady Deathstrike and Typhoid Mary to counter the X-Men (Mary herself is normally an enemy of Daredevil)

** And Shellhead's greatest foe, The Mandarin, took time out- primarily in the 60s and 70s- to deal with other characters. The very first ''Avengers'' annual had Amora and Skurge, Living Laser, the original Power Man and the Swordsman working for him to distract the Avengers from his plan of broadcasting worldwide hate-rays. The late 60s had him clash with the Hulk a few times (one time getting Nick Fury involved, another involving the Sandman- normally a Spider-Man foe), another time he kidnapped a peacemaker who was rescued by Captain America, and still another time saw him encounter the Inhumans in an attempt to gain a Makulan artifact. Since then though, he's been sticking with IM.

* Mephisto works well as a deliberate example: He was originally introduced in the ''ComicBook/SilverSurfer'' series, but has spent stints as an adversary of both Comicbook/TheMightyThor and Comicbook/GhostRider. To the modern reader, though, he's best known for his role in ''Comicbook/OneMoreDay''. Mephisto is best understood as a member of the RoguesGallery for the wider Marvel Universe, rather than any one hero, which is fitting as he is basically a stand-in for {{Satan}}. He has tangled with nearly every single major hero and several villains, and is a lot more personal for many.
