** [=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.

* Can pop up in ''TabletopGame/MasksANewGeneration''. The players get a "Team Pool" that they can spend to boost each other through TeamSpirit, but difficult circumstances (no clear leader, a distrusted leader, diverging aims in a given scenario) will reduce the size of the team pool and the overall effectiveness of the team.

* General Leslie Groves was in charge of The Manhattan Project. His deputy Colonel Kenneth Nichols said he was "the biggest sonofabitch I've ever met in my life, but also one of the most capable ... I hated his guts and so did everyone else, but if I was to have to do my part all over again, I would select Groves as boss."
* Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn, who comprised Music/BrooksAndDunn, reportedly had almost no interaction outside the studio or on tour they even had separate tour buses, and their pre-show interaction was mostly limited to having a shot of whiskey together before each show. One of them even told ''Country Weekly'' that the impetus behind their 2011 breakup was that they just felt like they had been together for too long.

[=MacArthur=] was the chief of staff of the US Army, and later, the "chief military advisor" to the Philippines, which was yet a US dependency. Eisenhower was his loyal, lowly, overworked, and overlooked aide who was unhappy over the way his imperious boss treated him but was still a very efficient and capable underling. After World War 2, when both were five-star generals and big war heroes, neither had nice things to say about the other during this period, however.

* The Vindicators of the WhateleyUniverse. Kismet, the leader, won't admit she ever makes a mistake. Lemure hates her and is only still on the team because of Sizemax. Dynamaxx enjoys playing them off against each other. Captain Canada! is likely to go off the deep end at the first serious stressor.

* Creator/GeneWilder and Creator/RichardPryor starred together in 4 films (''Film/SilverStreak'', ''Film/StirCrazy'', ''Film/SeeNoEvilHearNoEvil'', and ''Another You''), but despised each other in real life.
** "Despised" is way too strong a term. They were not close friends, but were never anywhere near coming to blows when they worked together and generally cooperated during filming, understanding that they had good chemistry on screen and people enjoyed seeing them in films together.
