* ''VampireTheMasquerade'': Granted this is enforced more by collective [[BloodMagic blood bond]] (and a healthy dose of [[MoreThanMindControl brainwashing/conditioning/Stockholm syndrome]]), but Sabbat packs tend to have this by default. It's a magically enforced friendship, but such Cainites will eagerly face Final Death for each other. It's those in the Camarilla that [[TeethClenchedTeamwork have a hard]] [[WeAreStrugglingTogether time standing]] [[AHouseDivided each other]]. In fact, while regular, unenforced friendship is possible (there are clear examples of this, foremost being the [[PlayerCharacter coteries]]), it's heavily implied to be against Kindred nature as a whole. Ironically, it's the bad guys ([[BlackAndGrayMorality or worse guys]]) that are most likely to employ the PowerOfFriendship. Unless they're the player characters, of course.

* In ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', the Chechen and Maroni are clearly good friends outside of work. They're even having dinner together when they're arrested.
* In ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', it is revealed that [[spoiler:Bane is merely TheDragon to the real BigBad, [[DaddysLittleVillain Talia Al Ghul]]. Their backstory swiftly reveals that he pledged his life to protecting her when she was a little girl in a HellHolePrison, and it's likely that Talia is the only person Bane has ever cared about, to the point that he was willing to fight off almost all of the other inmates, suffering an agonising disfigurement in the process, just so that she could have the freedom that was denied to him. And she came back for him, bringing the might of the League of Shadows to bear against the prisoners who injured Bane and murdered Talia's mother, asking Ra's to spare Bane. Their relationship has been one of absolute loyalty and mutual trust ever since.]]

* 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 ''Film/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.

Added DiffLines:

* Zig-zagged with the Ginyu Force in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged''. While none of them are particularly broken up about Guldo dying, Burter and Jeice are depicted as genuinely being best friends, to the point that Burter's loss reduces Jeice to a blubbering mess. After ''all'' the others are killed, Ginyu asks the heroes to give him a moment of silence. Naturally, Vegeta doesn't.

[[VitriolicBestBuds They often bicker]] but seem very close, joking around about ways to hurt [[VillainProtagonist Zim]] and their mutual love of junk food.

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}, Roman Torchwick and Neopolitan seem to genuinely care about each other and get along well. Also the case with Mercury and Emerald, though more VitrolicBestBuds.

** ''Series/{{Daredevil 2015}}'' gives us [[Creator/VincentDonofrio Wilson Fisk]] and his right-hand man James Wesley. Beyond acting as his head enforcer, Wesley helps Fisk woo Vanessa Marianna and encourages him to do things that make him happy. In return, Fisk speaks fondly of Wesley and even gives him a genuine "Thank you" for everything he's done. Fisk takes it ''really'' badly when Karen Page kills Wesley after he tries to blackmail her over an unrelated matter.

After Blake survives getting shot by a crooked ESU sniper for accidentally leaking information to Matt, Fisk worries that Blake will rat on him. It takes an awful lot of money, a threat to his own life, and the knowledge that Blake would be killed by someone else anyway, to get Hoffman to go to the hospital and poison Blake. Even then, Hoffman is so wracked with guilt over doing so that he goes into hiding, stashed away by Owlsley, and later gives Fisk's operation up to the FBI.

* [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]] and [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Dr. Eggman]] take an instant liking to each other in the ''VideoGame/MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympicGames'' series, and form a BigBadDuumvirate in the story modes. Unlike [[ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehogMegaManWorldsCollide Dr. Eggman's other team up with a video game villain that turned sour]], and Bowser's [[EvilVersusEvil general]] [[EvilerThanThou attitude]] towards other villains in his home series, these two bad guys get along quite well and maintain a steady alliance throughout, mostly due to their CommonalityConnection, and they really dislike [[TheHero Sonic and Mario]]. [[OverlordJr Bowser Jr]] and [[EvilKnockoff Metal Sonic]] form a steady bond in the same series as well.
