* 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.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': None of the Phantom Thieves are particularly happy about working with Goro Akechi to [[spoiler:steal Sae Niijima's heart]] because he's spread negative press about them throughout most of the game, one of the conditions for his assistance is that the group disbands after the mission is completed, and [[spoiler:the Thieves already know that Akechi is part of the Conspiracy, and is plotting to kill the Protagonist]].

* VideoGame/FrontMission gives us a stage where Canyon Crow (The good guys team) has to work with [[BigBad Driscoll]]. While Driscoll doesn't seem to care, Lloyd is pretty ticked off since Driscoll ''killed his fiance right in front of him in the opening mission''. Even though relying on Driscoll's ridiculously overpowered [[WalkingTank wanzer]] is the only way to win (You're greatly outnumbered), Lloyd still tries to kill him when the mission is over. [[spoiler:He can't since the OCU (Lloyd's country) as signed a peace treaty with the USN (Driscoll's country).]]



* In ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheAzranLegacy'', toward the end of the game, Layton and Luke are forced to team up with [[spoiler:Descole]], a villain they've been contending with [[spoiler:for the entire prequel trilogy]], to prevent their [[EnemyMine mutual enemy]] [[spoiler:Bronev]] from succeeding. Layton is not exactly happy about this, and Luke frequently voices his displeasure, especially considering that [[spoiler:Descole kidnapped his mother and butler while impersonating the latter in order to force his father to do his bidding]].

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' backstory, Akatosh, the [[DragonsAreDivine draconic]] God of Time and [[TopGod chief deity]] of the Aedric [[SaintlyChurch Nine Divines pantheon]], had one of these with [[EternalHero Pelinal Whitestrake]] during the Alessian Revolt. Pelinal was sent by the Divines to be [[FounderOfTheKingdom Alessia]]'s champion, but [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow he could always feel Akatosh's burning gaze upon him]]. With Pelinal believed to have been a Shezarrine, a [[GodInHumanForm physical incarnation]] of Lorkhan's (the [[GodIsDead "dead" creator god]] of Mundus, the mortal plane) spirit, this makes a degree of sense as Akatosh/[[IHaveManyNames Auri-El]] considered it a "[[MyGreatestFailure moment of weakness]]" when he went with Lorkhan's plan to create Mundus and likely still harbors a grudge. When Pelinal went too far in one of his [[TheBerserker berserker]] fits of rage and damaged the lands themselves, Akatosh and the other divines [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere nearly left Mundus in disgust]] until they were placated by Alessia. Eventually, Alessia's forces won, Pelinal was cut to pieces by the [[OurElvesAreBetter Ayleids]], and Akatosh became the patron deity of Alessia's new empire of [[HumansAreSpecial Men]].

** As much as Tywin hates it, he does respect Tyrion as the most capable (or at least most trustworthy) of the lords in King's Landing. While he is harsh and abusive towards Tyrion, he does also speak to him as somewhat of an equal.

** [=MacArthur=] as a rule didn't work and play well with others; he was a notorious influence peddler within the Army even in an era when that was commonplace. He cooperated with the Air Corps when necessary and the Navy only when forced to. When the US entered WorldWarII [=MacArthur=] demanded overall control of all Allied forces. FDR and Marshall saw otherwise and kept him in the Philippines.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' The player can command certain units to pair up and work as a team such as [[spoiler:Chrom and Gangrel]], even though in the story those two clearly hate each other.
* In [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Tekken 4]] Kazuya and his father Heihachi briefly team up in order to fight a squad of robots, they perform well together as a team and are in perfect synchronization, only when the battle is about to end with an explosive finale that Kazuya betrays his father and leaves him to die in a massive explosion. The fact is that Kazuya and Heihachi despise each other to the point that they each tried to kill the other. In the Tekken Tag spin offs the player can pair up Jin with Kazuya his father and like in the previous generation Jin wants nothing more than to hurt Kazuya and Kazuya returns that gesture. Their victory poses actually have them staring each other down, while in another Jin attempts to punch Kazuya before he flies away.

Being hostile to each other.other because of their directly conflicting views and opinions. Bao'dur hates Mandalore for what his people did during the war. Handmaiden sees Visas Marr as a rival for the Exile's affection. If the Exile is female then Atton dislikes Disciple for the same reason. None of the droids are particularly fond of each other. Hanharr hates everyone, and ''nobody'' likes Kreia. Mira being pretty much the only one who doesn't have it out for anybody else.

Even then, they [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder spent just as much time backstabbing each other as they did fighting the heroes]], sometimes [[UpToEleven while they were fighting the heroes]].
