* In "Ayla and the Birthday Brawl" of the WhateleyUniverse, Hekate's unseen master makes her team up with The Necromancer so she has a safe haven from a true Sidhe curse. The same unseen figured gets Don Sebastiano to give them intel, and The Necromancer gets his Children of the Night, the Felonious Four, and Obsession to help him.

* The Four Horsemen can be considered the TropeCodifier for professional wrestling. This particular group, known in wrestling as a "stable" or "faction," first formed with Wrestling/RicFlair, Ole Anderson, Wrestling/ArnAnderson and Tully Blanchard. Various incarnations lasted for 13 years; however, they have direct descendants running up to today's current wrestlers.

* Shigeo Okumura is normally against all things Mexican but with Mima Shimoda acting as his manager at the 2015 ''Fantastica Mania'', he looked past that to team up with Mr. Niebla, Pólvora and Bárbaro Cavernario to avenge his draw against Ángel de Oro. It only took him four days to swear off his new Mexican allies, though Shimoda remained by his side.

* In Taylor Anderson's ''{{Destroyermen}}'', this is a fear of the [[TheAlliance Grand Alliance]] should their two enemies (the [[ImperialJapan Japanese]]-aided [[LizardFolk Grik]] and the [[ReligionOfEvil Holy]] [[TheEmpire Dominion]]) find out about each other. While they admit that the thoroughly racist Doms wouldn't even consider allying with such vile creatures as the Grik, they wouldn't put it past Hisashi Kurokawa or the Celestial Mother to offer the Dominion a chance to join the Hunt. By the end of ''Storm Surge'', both of the enemies are aware of one another. The Doms intend to send an expedition across the Atlantic to see if the Grik can somehow be subverted to serve their "holy" purpose. Of course, the "Grand Alliance of all Allied powers united beneath (or beside) the Banner of the Trees" is the heroic version of this. Originally made up of the crew of the USS ''Walker'' and several Lemurian Homes, it now includes most of the known Lemurians, several more crossed-over crews, the Empire of New Britain Isles, and the Republic of Real People. Additionally, another potential new ally is found, the [[spoiler:United States]].

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.

Notice that unlike the Orcs and Trolls, the Southern Men and Pirates are by no mean bind to Sauron's magic and influence and were already a treat on their own.

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.
