* 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.

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.

* ''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.

Added DiffLines:

* Thomas Jefferson and James Madison of ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', although it would be a stretch to call them villainous (antagonistic, sure, but not straight-up villains). Burr also tries to get in on the fun in "Washington on Your Side", but is ultimately rejected through his ambitious politicking in "The Election of 1800". Bizarrely, King George III is implied to have one with Jefferson, as he is seen gleefully making it rain with copies of the Reynolds Pamphlet in "The Reynolds Pamphlet" alongside Jefferson.

* [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn]] are genuine friends, occasionally with [[FriendsWithBenefits benefits]].

* Black Tom Cassidy and the Juggernaut were friends for many years. Wolverine once teased Juggernaut by referring to Cassidy as "your boyfriend". Juggernaut once dived underwater to save Cassidy from drowning. For Cassidy's birthday, Juggernaut once gave him the Crimson Gem of Cyttorak, hoping to give him some of his powers. After Juggernaut's HeelFaceTurn, he convinced Cassidy to turn himself in.
