* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'': All the recurring villains seem to have a friendship with each other. Then again, it's easy to see how the villains get along with each other, since Mojo Jojo is AffablyEvil, HIM is soft-spoken, and all that. This goes to the point where they're seen discussing EvenEvilHasStandards together, being willing to stand toghetter when they think that even villains like themselves had enough, and even opened a Beatles-themed band with each other.

** [[BigBad Albert Wesker]] and [[MadScientist William Birkin]], at least as much as two sociopaths could be. Placed in charge of one of Umbrella's facilities as teenagers, the two were noted to be close and conspired together on many occasions. Their partnership remained well into their 30s, with Birkin actively aiding in Wesker's plan to betray Umbrella and steal their research. Birkin's death at the hands of Umbrella agents seems to have genuinely made Wesker ''very'' cross, something rare for a man infamous for using and throwing people away.

** Nearly every Touhou game has this in the BigBad and TheDragon, and sometimes extending to the other members of the faction ([[WhiteAndGreyMorality as much as you can call them villainous, that is]]). The only major exception so far is ''Double Dealing Character'', where [[BigBad Seija]] is just manipulating [[FinalBoss Shinmyoumaru]] instead of being friends.

* ''Film/{{Gothika}}'': The serial killer/rapist is eventually revealed to have had an accomplice. [[spoiler:After Sherrif Ryan is revealed as Doug's accomplice, he states that he helped Doug out with his first kill because they were friends, and since then they have been destroying countless lives for their depraved gratification. Ryan goes on a rampage against Miranda as revenge for killing Doug (she was possessed by the ghost of one of the victims).]]
* In the first Film/{{Batman}} film, directed by TimBurton, The Joker and his right-hand man Bob seemed to have a pretty good relationship. Bob was the second in command of The Joker's group of thugs back when he was Jack Napier. After Jack's transformation into The Joker, Bob stayed by his side as his loyal right hand man. Bob was very loyal to his boss and did everything he was asked with a "Yes sir!" The Joker seemed to value his loyalty pretty well, telling him "you are my number one guy". [[spoiler:But that all ended when The Joker shot and killed Bob just to vent his anger after Batman foiled one of his plans]].
** Riddler and Two Face from BatmanForever get along great and seem to be having the time of their lives in every scene they share. Even when Two Face and his goons crash Riddler's party, he simply complains that Two Face should have let him in on it.
* Harry and Marv from the HomeAlone films seem to have a pretty good friendship, despite Harry often getting annoyed with Marv's stupidity. In a deleted scene, the two are even shown singing "Harry And Marv are coming to town".
* In HellboyII, Prince Nuada was heartbroken and enraged at the death of his sidekick Mr. Wink, telling Hellboy "You will pay for what you did to my friend back there".

* In the ''BALADA:ASymphonyofEtenity'' series'', the various Imperial Officers of the 378th battlewing are shown to be friends to a various degree amongst themselves, not an easy feat considering that their composed out of a giant spider who's a religious fanatic, a Eagleman with aspirations of chivalry and knighthood, a sarcastic giant locust, a Legion being formed out of thousands of hivemind insects who is also a fashionista, a centaur, a six armed starscream expy, a sweet tooth velociraptor with a perchance for pranks, a friendly humanoid turtle, and Admiral Thrawn/Flashman expy and a Werewolf as their marines commander, though it helps that most of them where cadets togheter at what's basically West Point IN SPACE and then the wierd characters come in!



* In the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' series'', Rob Pierre and Oscar St-Just are friends aside from being loyal, while they recognize they are two very different personalities. Creator/DavidWeber often shows this type of relationship between people on the opposing side of his heroes, as he often has the "villains" be doing things for reasons other than just purely ForTheEvulz.
* In TwilightSparkleAndTheCrystalHeartSpell, Trixie and Gilda are shown to have met each other and become friends at some point. The two have fun pulling pranks and scamming ponies. It is an OddFriendship because Gilda hates ponies and Trixie IS a pony.

[[spoiler: Their friendship ended when Atkin decided to try and kill Mick to make sure he didn't talk about what they did]].

Compare MyMasterRightOrWrong, EvenEvilHasLovedOnes, and UnholyMatrimony when the relationship is romantic. Contrast TheStarscream. May result in MoralMyopia if they condemn heroes for doing the same things as themselves. For characters who don't get along, it's HeadbuttingHeroes.

** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' reveals that BigBad Gilbert Durandal had a functioning friendship with his predecessor, Rau Le Creuset. In fact, most of Durandal's actions are driven by his inability to prevent Le Creuset's spiral into madness.

** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' reveals that BigBad Gilbert Durandal had a functioning friendship with his predecessor, Rau Le Creuset. In fact, most of Durandal's actions are driven by his inability to prevent Le Creuset's spiral into madness. The reason Durandal didn't actually assist Le Creuset in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'' was that despite their friendship, they had a fundamental difference in philosophy. Both believed that humans were inherently evil, but had completely incompatible ideas on what to do about it. Le Creuset [[OmnicidalManiac felt the only solution was to exterminate humanity]], while Durandal [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill thought that humanity could be forced to get better]].

* Cardinal Roark and Kevin are quite close in ComicBook/SinCity. Cardinal Roark mentions Kevin as only ever speaking to him only, and [[spoiler: kisses his severed head as Marv prepares to kill him.]]
