If a {{Superhero}} has a RoguesGallery, it's an obvious plot for the villains to team up. A Villain Team Up is almost always for the sole purpose of ganging up on a hero or hero team and finishing them off ''once[[DramaticPause ...]] and for all!!!'' Villains will almost never team up to rob a bank together, or commit any other crime together. Typically this is because the typical RoguesGallery has villains with nothing in common at all, other than hating the hero.

l** The episode "Doomsday" makes this a SubvertedTrope; the Cybermen offer the Daleks an alliance. The Daleks instinctively refuse. The rest of the episode involves the Daleks and the Cybermen kicking the snot out of each other, with the Doctor and the humans trapped in the middle.
