* A more friendly example of this occurs in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' when Aang, Katara, and Sokka learn that Toph is on friendly terms with Iroh. Ultimately subverted in that 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. Subverted even further when he ends up [[spoiler: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.

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 of 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. Villain Over for Dinner is distantly related to DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu.

* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'' inverts this late in the season. [[IllGirl Yagami Hayate]]'s ''de facto'' family is spending Christmas eve in the Hospital with her, then four of her friends (two of whom are trying to locate the [[BigBad master]] of the Wolkenritter [=and/or=] keep the [[ArtifactOfDoom Book]] [[ArtifactOfDeath of]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Darkness]] from [[ApocalypseHow being completed]]) drop by unexpectedly with presents. [[DeathGlare Uh]] [[OhCrap Oh]]. As the two {{Muggle}} friends of Nanoha has been interacting with Hayate and the Wolkenritter since the first episode with neither side knowingtheir relationship to their enemies, the entire season was leading up to this scene and its associated InternalReveal.

* In BretHart's autobiography, he talks about how as a kid, he would watch Archie "The Stomper" Gouldie wrestle his father on television, including an angle in which Stomper broke Stu's arm, and then threatened to go to the Hart house and piledrive Bret's mom. As Bret had not been smarted up on [[{{Kayfabe}} how wrestling actually works]], imagine the look of horror Bret must have had to see Stomper appear at the Hart House, only for him to hug his mother and collect his paycheck.
