Enemy Mine / Fan Works

Go To


  • In Hogyoku ex Machina, Yoruichi is surprised when she finds out that the Vizards fought alongside Soul Society against Aizen in the original timeline, since they have no reason to like them. Ishida suggests it was because of this trope.


  • In Angel Of The Bat, Stephanie/Spoiler struggles to bring Red Hood to her cause of saving Cassie because it will mean they will be closer to bringing down their mutual enemy The Seraphim. It doesn’t work at first. Batman eventually breaks Jason’s resistance personally.

Calvin and Hobbes

Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers

  • Under the Bridge: Widget has taken several attempts at killing Gadget. Now Chip calls her on her submarine Albacore on the radio, alerting her that Gadget is out to attack and sink Albacore with a self-made, air-dropped torpedo. But the call comes in time: A young squirrel from Widget's crew named Andy injured an ankle on an unprotected chain, and now Widget needs Gadget and her aircraft to take him to a hospital. Meanwhile, when Widget comforts Andy, this also helps trigger her Heel–Face Turn.

Chronicles of Narnia

  • In Carpetbaggers, when the newly-crowned Pevensies need backup to fight a horde of the Witch’s creatures, they recruit the rebels who were holed up in the castle bullying and blackmailing local Narnians.


  • Thousand Shinji:
    • Discussed. Asuka suggests that she and Rei should team up (because Shinji enjoys annoying Asuka and Rei likes annoying Shinji), citing the "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" sentence. Rei gets surprised because Shinji has a different version: "The enemy of my enemy dies next."
    • Nothing less than an overwhelmingly bad situation could possibly force the Warhammer 40,000 gods to work together. We're talking a reluctant agnostic/atheist turned God-Emperor of Man, the Four Ruinous Powers (whom are sufficiently powerful that the *only* reason they haven't taken over the world is because they A) *HATE* each other, B) like it just the way it is, and C) already have...), Gork & Mork (the deities of a bunch of genetically engineered fungal bio-weapon), and the Eldar Pantheon (and let's not talk about all the shit they got up to with each other!

  • This happens in the Naruto/Justice League crossover Connecting The Dots when Naruto and Sasuke team up against a REALLY big threat.
  • Burning Black: Anti-Cosmo, and by proxy every anti-fairy he commands, allies with Team Turner against Remy and the Pixies in Act 3. He even outlaws the use of bad luck on Timothy directly; indirect bad luck is still fair game. The relationship is creeping into Friendly Enemy territory, which makes Cosmo and Wanda very nervous as Timmy's exposure to anti-fairies affects his personality and allows him to use black magic while giving him immunity to anti-magic waves.
  • In Fractured, a Mass Effect/Star Wars/Borderlands crossover and its sequel Origins, this is attempted several times. Whether it works is another matter.
    • Unlike canon, Samantha Shepard is not able to pull this off with the whole galaxy when the Reapers arrive, thanks to a Technology Uplift gone wrong that causes existing tensions to get worse rather than fade away in the face of a common foe.
    • The Citadel Council attempts to manage this through Aria T'Loak in the Terminus by having her unite the various mercenary factions to fight Flood. It works in that the mercenaries cooperate, but their efforts fall flat.
    • Garrus Vakarian tries to accomplish this by causing an arms race in the Corporate Warfare taking place around him, but it fails on two fronts: the corporations distrust each other and there aren't enough resources for this to work even if they did.
    • The heroes tend to view Sarah this way initially—she did kill millions of people even if it was for a good reason. Flood invasions are generally bad.
  • Superwomen of Eva 2: Lone Heir of Krypton: The first time that Asuka and Rei are on the same battlefield is during the Brainiac crisis. The first time they have to work together is when Parasite kidnaps them both to use as "power chargers". Asuka finds a lot of respect for Wonder Girl on that day-time will tell if they become Fire-Forged Friends.
  • A Dark Knight over Sin City features Batman and the anti-heroes from Sin City teaming up together and with other criminals in order to achieve their goals.
  • A Shadow of the Titans: Jinx briefly teams up with the Titans after Mumbo captures both Jade and Starfire and forces them to be his "assistants". Jinx describes it as "sharing a mutual problem", and as soon as Mumbo is defeated she grabs Jade and runs off.
    • The possible Bad Future glimpsed in the "Destiny" interlude has another apparent example: whatever "Omega" is, it's so bad that the Demon Sorcerers and the Eight Immortals team up with each other and Good!Jade to stop Evil!Jade from releasing it.
    • Jade and Raven teaming up against the Master of Games.
    • At the end of the first arc, the Titans team up with the HIVE honor roll and Gadjo in order to defeat Tarakudo and his Generals, who have taken over the HIVE and are using it as a staging point for world domination.
  • The Equestrian Wind Mage:
    • The denizens of Sunnytown — minus Grey Hoof and the Bone Fiends, who are working with Ganondorf — ally with the Mane Six and Vaati in order to retrieve the Element of Honesty.
    • The fact that Ganon is oppressing everyone in Equestria leads to alliances with the Diamond Dogs and Changelings against him.
    • In Season 3, the above alliances are still in effect, and with the monsters reformed, this will undoubtedly happen as contact between Equestria and Hyrule is made in the wake of Majora's attack.
  • The Bridge: Monster X and the Sirens are forced to team up when Enjin shows up and tries to kill them all.
  • Wonderful!: L33t went so mad when he realized that Squealer stole his tech and made it work that he and his partner-in-crime Uber fed information to the heroes to help them to beat up Squealer's gang.
  • Son of the Seven Kingdoms:
    • Serana aids the Dawnguard in fighting other vampires.
    • When the Mythic Dawn opens an Oblivion Gate during the Battle of King's Landing, William's Legions and the Lannister-Tyrell alliance quickly call a ceasefire and work together to stop the monsters emerging from it.
  • Out of the Corner of the Eye:
    • Shendu allies with Jackie and the others against the Outer Gods/Old Ones. As he puts it, he gets revenge for what was done to his son, and eliminates potential competition, while the Chans get to protect their world, so everyone wins.
    • The Chans and Section 13 fight alongside Po Kong against the Shoggoth. Po Kong betrays them by trying to steal the Shoggoth's power, but gets exorcised for her troubles.
  • Violence in the Library: Post-Bespin, Darth Vader saves Luke Skywalker from the Xenomorphs, and the two team up to destroy them.
  • Guardians, Wizards, and Kung-Fu Fighters:
    • After the Sack of Torus Filney exposes the dark side of the Rebellion, Will convinces Caleb and the other disgusted members of the leadership to seek a less violent path to victory by allying with members of Meridian's nobility who are opposed to Phobos' tyranny, in order to ease their campaigns going forward.
    • The Tracker and Nimue both have vastly different goals, but are willing to work together to destroy the Oni.
  • Earth's Alien History:
    • Humanity and the Race first start to move from belligerents coexisting on the same planet to allies as a result of having to fight together against all the other alien invasions of Earth, most prominently against the Harvesters.
    • The Mekon War is the first time two major separate power blocs (in this case, TeTO and the Citadel Council) work together against a common foe. The two then also fight alongside the Klingons and Romulans in the Five Galaxies War, and then all four factions work with each other and virtually every other faction in the Alpha Quadrant (even usually vilified races like the Harvesters, Vinn and Space Pirates) during the Reaper War.
    • While not enemies, the Arks Sherran and Centus are from rival blocs (the former from TeTO, the latter from the Citadel) but have to work together to survive after the Scourge damages them, separates them from their respective fleets, and strands them in hostile Kett space.
    • The Klingon and Romulan Arks left the Milky Way before the Reaper War led to their peoples putting aside their old rivalries, so still don't trust each other. But they work together to prevent Krell technology from falling into the wrong hands. As their definition of "wrong hands" include Ronan and Thanos, this alliance also brings in the Novans, who are desperate for any aid against their enemies.
    • In the Mirror Universe, the Ferengi ally with TeTO against the Mekon, as his totalitarian regime is bad for business.
    • Also in the Mirror Universe, the remnants of the Conspiracy of Light eventually ally with the Klingon-Andorian Alliance in order to check the growth of the Terran Empire.
    • The Master proposes to the Legends that this will eventually be the case between them against Faction Paradox. As he points out, they all want the Faction defeated — the Legends' mission is to stop the Faction from distorting the timeline, and the Master's is to find the Doctor, who is hiding from the Faction — so it's only natural they team up. Time will tell if this happens.
  • Ladybug in a Half Shell: Donatello and Casey momentarily put their animosity aside when they see April talking with Adrien.
    "That boy that April is talking too is Adrien Agreste. He's a top fashion model in Paris who's father also creates one of the top fashion lines in the world." There was a slight pause while Casey registered what Donnie had just said. To Donetello it seemed to take forever so he decided to stream line it for the boy. "Our April is talking to a famous rich fashion model from the city of Love."
  • In The Institute Saga, Juggernaut helps Superman and the X-Men to prevent Magneto's plans from ending Humanity.
  • In My Huntsman Academia, Izuku and Katsuki use Neo as their source of info on the White Fang to foil one of its robberies. Later on, they work together to fend off the waves of Grimm attracted by Katsuki's Hair-Trigger Temper.

  • In "Survival of a Monster" the 11th Doctor, Norine and a Rutan form an alliance to stop King Wurzin and the Tufgup learning space travel with a Rutan ship.
    • From the same author, "Game of Doctors" has a lot of this as the 7th Doctor in the 8th chapter is forced to make an alliance with Callidus Dominus and the Malphan Empire to defeat the Virmok Empire. Later with the help of the 11th Doctor he gets the Daleks to attack the Master's Cyberman world in the 16th chapter, which makes the 9th Doctor furious.

    • Later, they join Norm, Timmy, and his fairies in trapping Bob in another dimension.


Harry Potter

  • In Sluagh, apparently a Wizard Big Bad is exactly what's needed to get the Real IRA and the Unionist militia to work together.
  • Most stories focusing on Slytherin (particularly Slytherin!Harry) will give the House a simple rule that any problems with housemates stays inside the House. Against the other three Houses, they show a united front regardless of their feelings towards one another.
  • A Snake Named Voldemort has this between Voldemort and Harry, initially at least.
  • In A Year Too Soon, basically every Slytherin takes Harry's side over Draco's. While several don't like Harry despite him being one of them, but they acknowledge that he does his best to help the house while Draco is a spoiled brat who thinks throwing his father's name around will get him anything he wants.
    • Pansy's family announces their willingness to help Hermione press charges after she's injured by the Troll because whoever did it once could do so again, and Pansy's father will do anything to protect his little girl.
  • Unlike canon, even the Slytherins in Dark Defense hate Umbridge and want her gone. During his OWLs, Harry ponders whether the truce between Slytherins and Gryffindors, especially himself and Draco, will continue once she's gone.

Invader Zim

  • My Hostage Not Yours: Zim originally helping out Gaz (and Dib by extension) is this trope, before evolving.
    • Tak teams up with Dib's Group in the third story just for revenge against Zim. When they defect from the Swollen Eyeballs, they team up with Zim and Gaz to defeat them.
  • The New Adventures of Invader Zim:
    • In Episode 3, Dib and Tak team up to fight off Norlock when he shows up to kill her, with Dib deciding Tak is the Lesser of Two Evils. However, Tak makes it clear that they are not Fire-Forged Friends because of it.
    • In Episode 11, when Zim's latest experiment (genetically engineered plant monsters) turn on him, he has to ally with Dib's Team Save Earth to destroy them. Tak shows up partway through the fight to aid them, just because she sees the plants as a threat too.
    • In Episode 13, Zim and Skoodge team up with Tak to rescue Tenn from CREAM. Lampshaded by Tak quoting the Trope Namer, when Norlock points out that they don't have to like each other to get it done.
    • In Episode 15, we see Dib, Zim, and Tak's groups all reluctantly teaming up to fight the sea hydra that attacks them.
    • In Episode 21, all three teams ally against Norlock, who has betrayed Zim to take Project Domination for himself.

Jackie Chan Adventures

  • Queen of All Oni: When Valmont uses the power of Kaito's mask to steal the Ninja tribe away from Jade, she and Jackie briefly (and reluctantly, in her case) team up to defeat him.
    • Subverted in one of the scenes set in Jade's mindscape — Hero tries to form an alliance against The Queen with his apparent rival Father, but is rejected.
    • In a similar subversion, the J-Team refuses to ally with Karasu against Drago, as they don't see any good coming from working with a Shadowkhan.
  • The Ultimate Evil: After Jade's trapped in the Netherworld, Valerie goes to bargain the Pan'Ku Box from Shendu, resulting in the J-Team having to travel with the Demon Sorcerer and Hak Foo to the Fire Demon's portal so that Shendu can use the power boost provided by his Other Valerie to keep the portal open long enough for Jade to escape. Shendu's then banished before any of his siblings can escape as well.
    • When the damaging of the Book of Ages creates an all-consuming vortex during the climax, Shendu sets aside the animosities with the heroes in order to bring Valerie to the Book so that she can fix it.
    • In the sequel, The Stronger Evil, Drago ends up accidentally releasing Tarakudo from his imprisonment and has to team up with the J-Team to put him back down. Eventually Valerie proposes a full team-up with Drago and Shendu, with only Nataline of all the members of the J-Team agreeing to it at all.
  • Webwork: The Mexican crime boss known as the Old Colonel convinces the J-Team to protect him from the Oni Essence-empowered Chang and help take him down, by pointing out that it's better than letting Chang kill him, take over his assets, and go to ground with it all. They do help, but set the Colonel to be arrested by the Mexican police.

The Legend of Zelda


  • In Tony Stark is Not a Supervillain, the rogue Avengers try to handle a hostage situation in Israel, despite having no knowledge of the actual situation, only for both the hostage takers and the hostages to team up against them due to a common "an objection to Rogers and his brand of stupidity". Loki and Dr. Doom find the idea hilarious.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

  • A Brief History of Equestria: When Wind Whistler led a coup against Commander Sullamander, she recruited help from Star-Swirl the Bearded and the few unicorns loyal to him. True, Star-Swirl was open-minded and friendly with the other tribes, but that's still members of one nation asking help from members of a rival nation to overthrow their leader.
  • The Immortal Game: In a plan born of desperation to defeat Titan during the Final Battle, the Mane Six end up allying with Discord. As Celestia puts it, they know the latter will probably betray them after they're done with Titan, but they can handle that, and besides, "better the devil you know".
  • The Powers of Harmony: After she possesses her, Eclipse is able to convince Rarity to help her plot against Cetus, and together they plan to bring Twilight into the fold as well. Or at least, that's what Rarity wants Eclipse to think.
    • Played straight when the Changeling Princess Pupa allies with Applejack's group to stop (her sister) Chrysalis' invasion of Gildesdale, with the promise that afterwards she'll also ally her people with the ponies against Cetus.
  • At the climax of Rolling in Beaches, Spike convinces the hippocampi and Scaly Back River Clan dragons to put aside their differences in order to stop all the dragons and Mane Six turned into monsters by the Rainbow of Darkness.
  • In the Pony POV Series, the backstory for the Dark World has this happening twice between Discord and the various La Résistance groups arrayed against him (primarily the Changelings) — first during the invasion by the Imperium of Man, then centuries later during his war with Grogar (in both cases, Discord was viewed as the Lesser of Two Evils).
    • Clover's story in the 7 Dreams/Nightmares collection reveals that eons ago, a group of Eldritch Abominations escaped the loss of their own reality by entering the POV multiverse with the intention of absorbing all beings into their Hive Mind in order to torment them for all eternity. This offended both Fauna Luster and Entropy — the former because She's a strong believer in free will, and the latter because it would potentially prevent the end of all things She embodies and desires — leading to Them, Their Mates, and Their respective children working together to defeat these things and seal them beyond the Gates of Tartarus. It's noted in-universe that this is the only time the two of Them have ever agreed on anything.
    • During the Wedding Arc, while they're unaware of it, the heroes' efforts are being aided from the sidelines by Discord and Nightmare Diamond, who are aware that if Chrysalis succeeds in her plans, she'll be powerful enough to be a threat even to them.
    • During the Finale Arc, when Discord and his allies begin their endgame plan, it's so horrifying that a group of alternate dimension Nightmares show up to help stop them.
  • In The Conversion Bureau: Cold War the United States of America and the Soviet Union put aside all differences to fight a xenocidal race of Ponies.
  • Escape From the Moon: After the peace treaty between the "Pures" and the group rebelling against them was signed, Spliced Genome continued to create the plagues she'd used against the Pures on behalf of the rebels. Both sides promptly teamed up to capture her and lock her up.
  • In Luna Aeternal has Twilight, Princess Luna and several others trying to stop a terrorist group composed of humans and ponies who want to eradicate the other species from restarting war between ponies and humans, ironically, the terrorist group is very effective at working together, partly because both sides think themselves exploiting the other.


  • Boutoku no Naruto has Kyuubi willing to help Naruto out of hatred for the shinigami. When Naruto learned Edo Tensai instead of Kage Bunshin, Kyuubi offered him a deal.
    Kyuubi: "Because I hate. There are many things I hate. The Sage of the Six Paths. Madara Uchiha. Hashirama Senju. Mito Uzumaki. Minato Namikaze. The toads. Kushina Uzumaki. But more than anything else, I hate the Shinigami. He stole over two thirds of my power, and claimed the Namikize's soul in return, a violation of his own laws and rights. The Shiki Fuin, the contract with the Shinigami, works on a simple basis. A soul for a soul. He did not take my soul, merely my power. When I was sealed, he had nothing to do with it. By the ancient laws, he should have let the Namikaze go, or at least send him to the Pure World, and return my power to me. But he didn't, breaking ancient law. ... You see, he has stolen from me, so I will ensure that he suffers for it! You Naruto, are the key of my vengeance. Through you I will make him suffer. All I ask is that you call back many, many souls, I don't even care for what, and in return, I will give you what all other jinchuuriki can only dream of, my full support."
  • In Eroninja, Danzou and Joseki work together to destroy the Suna/Konoha alliance, viewing it as weakening their villages in the long run. Also, if they can instigate a war between the two, they'll have a chance to try and kill each other for their actions in previous wars.
  • Several stories, such as Genjutsu Gone Right, explain that the point of D-Rank missions is primarily to unite a genin team... against their teacher for making them do glorified chores.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

  • Advice and Trust: Shinji's female classmates have a crush on him and team up to keep Asuka away him as each one of them try to ask him out. However Rei does not care for them trying to flirt with Shinji so that Rei teams up with Asuka to keep them away Shinji (and in the process they become good friends).
  • HERZ: The US Government and SEELE does not like or trust each other, but they join to destroy secret organization GEIST. On the other hand, GEIST lends its support to NERV's successor HERZ to take down SEELE.
  • Once More with Feeling: Neither Gendo nor SEELE can stand each other but they're working together until all Angels are defeated.
    Their investigations had uncovered that there was some kind of friction between SEELE and their point man at Central. As far as Kaji had understood and explained it, the goals of SEELE and Gendo meshed well until some undetermined point in the future, at which point… things would probably happen.
    Both sides pretended it wasn't the case, but both sides knew the truth and were constantly maneuvering for position even as they worked together closely on what they needed to cooperate on.


  • Pokémon Reset Bloodlines features a few examples of this:
    • During the Bloodline War in the Bad Future, Ash apparently teamed up with Belladonna against the Bloodline King. Privately, Present!Ash wonders what circumstances would make such an alliance desirable for him, given how terrified of her he is.

    • In Chapter 33 of the main story, Ash's female companions run into Belladonna and company while looking for him. After explaining the situation, Belladonna invites herself to go along to help them find him, despite Misty and Iris not trusting her after their previous encounter, simply because Ash is her brother and she'd do anything to help him.

Real-Person Fic

  • Villain example: Although Brox and Co. and the Raleka in With Strings Attached aren't exactly mortal enemies, they dislike each other considerably. Brox and Co. are contemptuous of Ketafans in general, and the Raleka hate that the skahs want to use the sacred Vasyn for stupid purposes. However, they work together against the four because the Raleka cannot do certain things without Brox's help. We find out later that Brox and Co. were planning to betray the Raleka, but Paul and George inadvertently screwed this up for them.


  • One issue of Ultimate Spider-Woman: Change With the Light has petty criminal Blizzard teaming up with Spider-Woman to help her protect the innocent people in danger during an invasion of New York City by an army of Brainwashed and Crazy super villains.

This pays off in the later story Beat the Drums of War.
  • In the fic Safe and Sound, Kirk and Khan pull one of these, similar to the one they pulled in the second film, in order to save the kidnapped Nyota Uhura, Joanna McCoy and Lucille Harewood. This time, Khan doesn't betray him.
  • In The Wrong Reflection, Eleya allies with the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance to attack a Terran Empire installation, but Eleya worries that the Alliance may turn on her to get its hands on the USS Bajor's technology.
  • In "Past Continuous", as in canon the Federation and the Klingons are technically still at war throughout the 2800 incident (though active hostilities have died down), but they're working together to eject Loriss from Deep Space 9. Eleya remarks to Kagran that after the Jem'Hadar are dealt with "we can go back to hating each other, but until then, I want your word you'll keep [['men K'men's]] people in line."

Star Wars: The Old Republic

  • Blood and Honor: Sith Lord Sanguis and her team join forces with Republic soldiers on one occasion, Organa troops on anther, and a Jedi Master on a third.
