* An InvokedTrope in ''Four Against The Mob'' by Oscar Fraley. [[Series/TheUntouchables Elliot Ness]] invites a suspected SerialKiller in for a friendly chat, even ordering dinner. He gets a bit nervous when the suspect is wielding his knife and looking at Ness with a mad glint in his eye, but takes comfort in the fact that his men are in the next room...until he goes to the next room and finds his men have gone off for dinner themselves! Apparently they heard Ness order dinner, so decided everything was alright.

See also SafetyInMuggles. Compare GoKartingWithBowser, FriendlyEnemies. See also NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine and WhyIsntItAttacking. May overlap with VillainsOutShopping if the encounter is not planned and is just a result osf the villain's everyday, mundane activities unrelated to their villainy. A major reason things don't boil over is usually both parties respecting the SacredHospitality trope. VillainOverForDinner is distantly related to DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu.

** Angelus dropped by Joyce's house in a late-S2 episode to inform her that he was looking for Buffy and yes, he'd had sex with her daughter. Fortunately, Buffy and Willow were a few steps ahead of him, having warned Joyce not to let him in and magically revoked the invitation.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' this is [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean James Norrington]]'s initial reaction to his mother seeing [[Literature/TheErlKing der Erlkönig]] (after he realized who he is, [[spoiler:father of his [[WithFriendsLikeThese best friend]] [[Film/{{Labyrinth}} Jareth]] and the guy who tried to [[ChangelingTale steal]] [[Film/{{Labyrinth}} Toby]] so something dangerous and probably malevolent]]). Later {{subverted|Trope}} because the CoolOldLady is hard to fool... she willingly [[InterspeciesRomance romances]] [[TheFairFolk "Cthulhu"]].

* A more friendly example of this occurs in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' when Aang, Katara, and Sokka learn that Toph is on friendly terms with Iroh. The thing is, Iroh actually ''is'' a pretty nice guy and is only vaguely their enemy by virtue of being Zuko's guardian and mentor, so the scene doesn't end up being particularly tense or menacing. [[spoiler:He ultimately ends up outright fighting for the heroic side.]] Doubles as a FunnyBackgroundEvent since when the entire Gaang sees Iroh afterwards, their first reaction is complete and utter shock, except for Toph, who just waves hi and gives a big smile.
