  • In The Gamer's Alliance, Kagetsu I begins working with the Grand Alliance against Arawn Losstarot when the Alliance saves Kagetsu's wife Marya from Arawn's stronghold. Likewise a group of clerics of Mardük and Samachi work with the Alliance against the Northern Horde during the battle of Vanna despite their animosity which stems all the way from the Great War.
  • In Survival of the Fittest, Shameeca Mitchell and Heath Trennoby enlist the aid of Anti-Villain Bobby Jacks in order to mount a rescue from all around asshole Lenny Priestly. Admittedly Shameeca hadn't met Bobby before this point, but she was well aware that he was a killer.

  • In Dino Attack RPG, several classical LEGO villains, most notably Sam Sinister, The Brickster, and Evil Ogel ended up joining the team to combat the threat of mutant dinosaurs.
  • In Chapter One of Off the Page and into Life, Gail and Terrence have hated one another since childhood, in no small part thanks to their mutual interest in Henry. However, when Madame Blue begins spreading lies about them, they agree to work together to get rid of her. Gail even lampshades it, remarking that they're Not So Different, and probably would've taken over the world by now if they didn't hate each other so much.
  • STO Forum: Versus thread (rp) somewhat encourages this. On the one hand, the encounters are somewhat easier with two or more players working together since they can cover for each other, but on the other hand only two characters can get off the planet in the end. Examples so far:
    • Eleya and Kang join up early on in a swamp after she gets stuck in the mud and he rescues her. Averted in that the two of them actually seem to like each other.
    • Played straight with the other two. Torpal initially tries to kill 007. 007 shoots him nonfatally in both legs and gives him the option to join up or face a Coup de Grâce. Torpal grudgingly agrees. Breaks down almost immediately when they run into Jem'Hadar and try to use the other as bait. 007 comes out on top and Torpal dies.
  • The one thing that will unite the Pro-Godmodder, Neutrals, and Anti-Godmodders in Destroy the Godmodder is some giant boss that wants to kill everyone.
    • The most notable example is during the second game's Arrival/Glitch event, when the Godmodder and the rest of the AGs willingly signed a ceasefire treaty proposed by Lothyra to fight the Counteroperation. However, this was later Averted during Trial 3, when the Godmodder explicitly rejected a similar treaty proposed by Lothyra to fight off the Vord invasion.


How well does it match the trope?
