Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': After finding out the truth about the real goals of NERV and SEELE, Kaji has no choice but treating his old friend Ritsuko like an enemy.
-->After all, if Shinji was right, Ritsuko, good ole Rits herself was fully aware of the ultimate goals of the Evangelion project.\\
Hell, she was up to her ever so pretty neck in it.\\
Meaning he had no choice but to treat her as an enemy. Someone he had known for close to a decade and he thought he knew well…and thought of as a friend.\\
It was no easy shift to make in ones thinking, even for him.

** Pretty much the whole point of Part 2 . Sasuke Uchiha is the patron saint of this. Even his new allies who were ready to give their lives for him were quickly discarded. What's interesting in this case is that Naruto's devotion to saving Sasuke - in one form or another - actually causes breaks between him and most of ''his'' friends, who think Sasuke is an [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder evil back-stabbing bastard]] who needs to die, when they don't know how Sasuke came to truly be that way, when Naruto does, courtesy of Tobi. So essentially Sasuke has instigated a chain reaction of this trope.

* In ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'':
** Misato and Ritsuko subverted this at the beginning. They broke their friendship off during the Angel War, but they kind of made up afterwards. Misato also considered that Ritsuko was her only friend left.
--->Her work was all that mattered to her. But that didn't invalidate the fact that Ritsuko was the one person Misato could call a friend. Even if she disagreed with her, she could at least be honest. Otherwise, she wouldn't have come.
** However, when Asuka’s robot goes berserker and hurts Keiko because Ritsuko put a dangerous and unpredictable computer program in Unit-02, being fully aware of the possible consequences, Misato decides that she can’t forgive Ritsuko:
--->I swear she's done some awful things in her life, but I will never forgive her for that.

* In the JackieChanAdventures fic ''Fanfic/QueenOfAllOni'', after Jade turns evil once again, her family and friends still care deeply about her, to the point that they are willing to FIGHT her so that they can return them to normal, even though her feelings towards them have been twisted by Daolon Wong's faulty spell, especially [[spoiler: towards Tohru, since he became Uncle's apprentice instead of her]].

* In the [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver]] and [[UsefulNotes/TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks Bronze Ages,]] {{Superman}} and ComicBook/LexLuthor were friends when they were young.

* In the [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver]] and [[UsefulNotes/TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks Bronze Ages,]] {{Superman}} and ComicBook/LexLuthor were friends when they were young. Then a lab accident occurred, which Superboy saved Lex from. Lex blamed Superboy, and the rest is history.



** And again during ''ComicBook/JonathanHickmansAvengers'', when Steve realises Tony reformed the Illuminati, and then wiped his memory about it. The last portion of the run involves Steve relentlessly pursuing Tony over everything else, including the imminent end of all existence.



* The Flash III (Wally West) and Reverse-Flash II/Zoom (Hunter Zolomon) used to be friends. Hunter was a police profiler who met Wally when he'd already been the Flash for a few years, and Hunter had a bad knee. Hunter's knee was shot by a B-list Joker knock-off early in his career due to a bad call he made, which caused the death of his father-in-law, Hunter's divorce from his wife Ashley, and his firing from the FBI. Hunter liked Wally because he had a public identity and was an open-book, while Wally liked Hunter because Hunter reminded him of his dead mentor Barry Allen (The Flash II). Eventually, Hunter's spine was be damaged by Gorilla Grodd, which Wally blamed himself for. Hunter lost his ability to walk, and asked Wally to use the Cosmic Treadmill to go back in time and stop him from making his bad call. Wally refused, citing examples like Professor Zoom (Reverse-Flash I) as to why time travel is dangerous and unpredictable. Hunter says Wally refused because he has never experienced personal tragedy, and later tries to use the treadmill himself which ended up giving him time-based powers which effectively gave him superspeed (though he can't time-travel). With his new powers, Hunter decides that in order to make Wally a better hero, he must give Wally not only a great villain to face (which is why he took up the Reverse-Flash moniker), but also as much tragedy as possible. Hunter never outright tries to kill Wally, since this would defeat the purpose of why he does what he does, and Wally still feels responsible for Hunter's fall from grace.

* Adam Brashear, the Blue Marvel, and Connor Sims, the Anti-Man, were once war buddies who wound up assigned to the same super-science project, which ended up going wrong and giving them superpowers. However, Connor's powers ended up driving him insane, which eventually resulted in the death of Adam's wife Candace. [[ComicBook/Ultimates2015 When they meet again]], the normally good-natured Adam is furious at seeing him, even though Connor can't remember what happened.

* Subverted in ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'' with Misato and Ritsuko. They almost broke their friendship off, but an unintended side-effect of Shinji and Asuka’s meddling with the timeline was they patched things up after [[spoiler:the destruction of the clones of Rei.]]
