Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/UchuSentaiKyuranger'': Stinger/[[ScaryScorpions Sasori]] Oranger and Champ/[[ALoadOfBull Ouishi]] Black work together only because they are on the same team and have the same goal. [[HotBlooded Champ]] would rather squish Stinger for [[spoiler: killing his creator, Professor Anton]] and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Stinger]] is just antisocial prick.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/KamenRiderOOO'': [[IdiotHero Eiji]] [[ObfuscatingStupidity Hino]] and [[TokenEvilTeammate Ankh]] start with a mutual agreement that they work together for as long as they need and try to kill each other the moment they will not.
* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'':
** Doctor Riders cooperating to defeat Graphite Bugster. ''Cooperating'' is very generous term as they butt heads through the whole fight, scoff at each other and generally show how much they hate having to do this.
** [[DoctorJerk Hiiro Kagami]] and [[NotSoDifferent Taiga Hanaya]] form this for the sake of their fellow rider, Emu Hojo. They justifiedly hate each other and see Emu as nuisance at best, but neither of them [[spoiler: wants him to die]].
* ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'': This is where relationship of Sento Kiryu and Ryuga Banjou started. They are complete opposites - Sento is [[InsufferableGenius genius]] [[ScienceHero physicist]] and Ryuga is [[DumbMuscle former]] [[EmotionalBruiser pro fighter]]. They are initially stuck with each other out of necessity, but develop into BashBrothers with a dose of [[VitriolicBestBuds vitriol]] over the time.

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}:
** [[Franchise/GreenLantern Green and Red Lanterns]] don't get along... ''at all''.

** In ''Comicbook/ManyHappyReturns'' super-villain Xenon has this with his sometimes ally the [[EldritchAbomination Fatalist]]. They don't like each other but the Fatalist helps him for his own reasons, simultaneously withholding crucial information from Xenon.

* In ''Fanfic/TheEndOfAllThings'', this describes Zach and Midna at the beginning. Zach is a snarky JerkAss who is rude, Midna is a snarky princess who is also rude. They need to work together because Zach ([[WrongGenreSavvy generally]]) [[GenreSavvy knows what's going on]] and Midna has magic powers that greatly help Zach fight and get around while in wolf form.

* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', Ash's dynamic with Red devolves into this during [[TournamentArc the Fuchsia Tag Tournament]] when he learns that Red is a bloodliner and freely uses his abilities to help himself in his Pokémon battles (as opposed to Ash who considers it cheating). This almost costs them the semifinals, but they agree to a truce for the finals after [[spoiler: [[TheRival Paul]] [[KickTheDog releases his Raichu without properly healing her]] just for [[losing one too many battles]],]] something they're both equally disgusted at.

** There's also a villainous example with Josephine and Ezekiel Clench, a pair of formerly married bounty hunters, who reluctantly put their differences aside to capture Jack, but spend just as much time bickering with each other. [[spoiler: They actually ''do'' manage to capture Jack, but Josephine lets her greed get the better of her and betrays her former husband, [[NiceJobFixingItVillain giving Jack the opportunity to free himself]].]]

* In ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', this noted to have been Felix's and Locus' relationship during the war. They greatly disliked each other and were extremely competitive, but they were on the same side in a very deadly war, so they worked together to survive it. Now that the war is over [[spoiler:they still work together, due to the fact that they make a disturbingly effective team, allowing both of them to get a paycheck for joint mercenary work. They most certainly hate each other, and are implied to want to kill each other, but they both know they will never get another partner who works in sync with them as well as the other]].

** This is true for pretty much the entire casts, at the start of the series, with neither team getting along with each other, let alone with the opposite team. This downplayed somewhat as the series goes on, with them becoming more or less TrueCompanions, but even then...

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'':
** In Jack in the Scotsman's relationship starts out this way, with them (despite Jack's best efforts) getting into a prolonged fight almost immediately after meeting each other and only end of (reluctantly) working together, because a group of bounty hunter [[ChainedHeat handcuffed them together]]. Though after they get themselves out of that predicament, they have grown to respect each other as warriors, with the Scotsman even becoming Jack's only real recurring ally for the first four seasons, with them still occasionally butting-heads, but more as a friendly rivalry, than genuine displeasure with the other.
** Jack was also forced to do this with [[NoNameGiven The Labyrinth Thief]], despite both of them wanting the MacGuffin for themselves, but having to work together to survive the labyrinth's MechaMook guardians. [[spoiler: Predictably, they end up [[NiceJobBreakingItHero destroying said item, after they start fighting over]] and Jack leaves him, without another word.]]

* The Republican leadership in the US Congress first tried being friendly with Creator/DonaldTrump but it quickly devolved into traditional Republicans gritting their teeth and going along the president despite his continuous impulsive outbursts and outright hostility towards his own party. It's become well-known that Senate Republican Leader Mitch [=McConnell=] will stay stonily silent during phone calls as he tries to control his own temper as Trump meanders from topic to topic (usually about news stories that put himself in a good light) but [=McConnell=] and other senior Republicans work hard to put on a unified front out of fear of splintering their party and losing their legislative majority.

* ''Fanfic/TheNewAdventuresOfInvaderZim'':
** When [[SiblingTeam Steve and Viera]] are first introduced, they don't get along very well, due to their different views on what takes priority in paranormal studies, which badly affects their functionality as a team. Fortunately, Dib helps them get over this.
** Tak and Tenn likewise do not work well together at all to start with. They only reluctantly eventually agree to put aside their differences and move forward, but time will tell how this works out.

Needless to say, they don't get along at all well, though, given enough time, they can become FireForgedFriends, with The Red Prince even teaming up with Sebille to kill her former master.
