* ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'': Lotor and his generals. [[spoiler: However, in Season 4 he straight up kills one of them after she turns out to be a spy. This prompts the remaining three to turn on him, causing their whole friendship dynamic to fall apart. However, as far as we know, the three who turned on him are still friends.]]

* Orc captains in ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfWar'' can sometimes be Blood Brothers with each other. If you kill one, the other will show up right after, ready to avenge his closest friend, even if you've already given him HeelFaceBrainwashing.

** Later on, [[spoiler:Freeza seems to develop one with his Universe 6 counterpart Frost when they finally meet. Like the Zamasu-Goku Black example above, it says a lot about Frieza that the ''one'' guy he seemingly gets friendly with is basically another version of himself]].

* The demons Decarabia and Forneus of the ''ArsGoetia'' aren't mentioned in the original text as having any relationship to each other, but are best friends in two out of five the ''ShinMegamiTensei'' games in which they both appear, even getting a combination attack together in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}''. Probably because, again unlike in the ''Goetia'', they're both depicted as sea creatures, a starfish and a ray respectively.[[note]] According to the ''Ars Goetia'', Forneus was a "great sea monster" -- with no further description of what he was beyond that -- and Decarabia was a pentagram that could take human form. As such, he's usually portrayed in other media as either a starfish or an animate magic circle.[[/note]] It more or less started in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'', where Decarabia's found waiting for Forneus at the site of the Hachiko statue.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOh'', Marik's relationship with Rishid (his foster brother as well as his second-in-command) is complicated. The two are ''very'' close, and Rishid does show UndyingLoyalty to his brother, but this is for a very good reason: Rishid knows that he is the only one preventing Marik's [[SuperPoweredEvilSide even darker personality]] (who killed their father) from taking hold. When Yami Marik does eventually take over, he tries to kill Rishid to prevent the real Marik from regaining control, but Rishid refuses to desert the real Marik, and this plays a vital role in the FinalBattle between the villain and the Pharaoh.

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Ginyu and Frieza seem to have this at first. Frieza is genuinely happy to have Ginyu back, saying that he thought he died on Namek. Then this becomes {{subverted}} after Vegeta kills Ginyu. Instead of being saddened by the death of his most loyal servant, Frieza laughs.
** Although [[spoiler: Future Zamasu]] doesn't see [[spoiler: Goku Black]] as his "comrade", they get along very well. When they're not out killing mortals, they live together in a house outside the city and have tea together; [[spoiler: Future Zamasu]] even suggests to [[spoiler: Black]] that [[spoiler: he use the Dragon Balls to become immortal just as he did.]] It turns out [[spoiler: Goku Black is *another* timeline's version of Zamasu who stole Goku's body.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'': [=LordKnightmon=] and Dynasmon are shown to be fairly close with each other. They share the exact same goal and dream of conquering the Human World and their teamwork is comparable with that of the heroes, despite each of them being proud knights. Part of their dream is that they conquer the real world ''together'', thus Dynasmon flips when he sees his comrade being mortally wounded, and the near-dead [=LordKnightmon=] is concerned about Dynasmon being slayed down.
* ''Anime/DigimonSavers'': While not much of their camaraderie is seen between the Royal Knights, they are shown to respect each other. Magnamon and Dynasmon praise Craniummon's (nigh-)invincible defense and trust him for that. Dukemon still shows respect towards Sleipmon who has betrayed them and Dukemon shows some signs of reluctance of fighting his former comrade.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Arawn}}'': Arawn's only true friend as an EvilOverlord is the decapitated head of his advisor Owen. In fact, the whole reason why Owen is still alive is because Arawn forces the Cauldron not to kill him and later brought him BackFromTheDead after Owen gave his own life to destroy it.
