* In the second season of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', the protagonists and antagonists both constantly forsake team combat and outside intervention in favor of fighting the same opponent they faced in the first episode one-on-one. This most notably produces the Fate/Signum rivalry, for which the HeelFaceTurn, NotSoDifferent, and AntagonistInMourning options are all realized.

** Elan's father Tarquin inverts this. Elan is the only one he will allow to defeat him -- a fair chance anyway -- since that would make an epic story. Tarquin is pretty DangerouslyGenreSavvy otherwise and takes precautions against letting anyone else get close enough to even try to kill him -- especially not Nale TheUnfavorite.

** Even in ''Best Wishes'' Team Rocket pulled one of their most badass {{Enemy Mine}}s to protect Pikachu from Team Plasma. Meowth in particular randomly became a fighting machine and took down half their army.

*** Used against him in one G1 episode, where Megatron is overwhelmed by a boosted Optimus and calls for backup. Starscream however smugly insists he wouldn't dare intrude on the two leaders' ageless rivalry and thoroughly enjoys watching his leader get beaten down. Sixshot pulled the same stunt in ''Energon'' after being fiercely warned off interfering with Galvatron's bouts with Optimus, shutting down all their forces until he backtracked his threat. It seems while the Decepticon leader has called his target, he's not against ''some'' assistance when required, something other Decepticons in these cases lampshaded the hypocrisy of.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'' after self-proclaimed arch-nemesis Karl claims to not be involved in the current evil scheme and notes it to be pedestrian and beneath him, he shows up during the climax to save Julien's life.
-->'''Karl''': Julien and I are locked in an epic battle of light and dark! He is my nemesis, and I am his. I can't have you and your pedestrian little "rope trap and a pack of fossa" plan get in the way of that! You see, Julien's fate belongs to me! Not you! Me!

** During the Onslaught storyline, Doom was at his embassy in New York City, and dispassionately listening to reports of the devastation Onslaught was inflicting on the city. It was pretty obvious he had no stake in the fight and was planning on staying out of it...until one of his people informed him that Onslaught had kidnapped Reed Richards' son Franklin. Saying that Doom was seriously pissed off is an understatement. "This mutant upstart ''dares'' to kidnap the son of my greatest enemy? It's apparent this Onslaught individual is going to require my personal attention!"

* This was practically a motto of Lord Recluse in ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes''. Lord Recluse spent upwards of fifty years building his resources and biding his time for the climatic final battle with his arch-enemy, Statesman. Every villain in the Rogue Isles, and their mother, and their mother's cat, knew not to set off those fireworks early without Lord Recluse's say so. [[spoiler: Well, everyone but Darrin Wade and sure enough... did not end well for him.]]

** In ''Energon'', Sixshot ended up on ''very'' bad terms with Galvatron for constantly trying to kill Optimus himself as revenge for killing his brother Shockblast (though the fact he was willing to kill the rest of the Decepticons as collateral damage didn't help). After suffering several beatings over this, Sixshot attacked and came closer to killing Galvatron than any previous usurper, merely so he wouldn't get in the way of their vendetta. Galvatron recovered however and dealt with Sixshot accordingly.
-->'''Sixshot:''' Optimus Prime will be ''mine''!
-->'''Galvatron:''' ''Never!''
