* There's a rather well-known story of American colonel Francis Marion having dinner with British colonel Banastre Tarleton at Marion's swamp base during the AmericanRevolution. A writing later told of the surprise at how the Americans were so willing to keep fighting with so few supplies or even adequate clothing at times.

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 both parties respecting the acredHospitality trope. VillainOverForDinner is distantly related to DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu.

* In ''NabariNoOu'', due to the series' GreyAndGrayMorality, this is mostly played for laughs: Thobari finds his girlfriend letting an enemy ninja into the house. And serving him tea. And then [[CrowningMomentOfFunny holding hands]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/683-33497-29/nabari-no-ou/chapter-22.html and dancing around]].
-->'''Thobari''': I can't take this...It's just getting worse and worse...
-->'''Hanabusa''': Ah, Thobari, you join in too!

* 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 how [[{{Kayfabe}} 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.
