Unlikely team-up is a theme used to describe events in which two or more characters find themselves in a situation where they are forced to cooperate with one another to accomplish a common goal, even though these characters would not ordinarily work together. The most common usage of this theme is to have a protagonist enter into a reluctant agreement with an antagonist. However, this may also apply to characters associating with one another in an environment wherein they would not normally share a common interest.
Protagonist/Antagonist team-ups Edit
- Daredevil: Penny and Dime - Daredevil and the Punisher briefly set aside their own issues to take down members of the Kitchen Irish mob.
- Doctor Who: The Witch's Familiar - The 12th Doctor and Missy have to work together to escape from the Daleks.
Superhero team-ups Edit
- Supergirl: Worlds Finest - Supergirl and the Flash team-up to combat Livewire and Silver Banshee. The team-up is unlikely because the Flash is from an alternate reality from that of Supergirl.
Supervillain team-ups Edit
- Supergirl: Worlds Finest - Livewire and Silver Banshee team up to get revenge on Cat Grant.
