BRPD- The Wendigo and the Were-Jaguar

Two creatures unrelated in myth, one being Native american in nature, the other of Asian origin, nonetheless come together to fight in the comic BPRD, a spin-off (but strong title in its own right) of the Hellboy franchise. The Wendigo is a malevolent spirit that possesses those it kills, turning them into the next incarnation of it (the most recent being the friendly Daryl, a family man) while the Jaguar is a little more vague, a curse inflicted upon the dead on the shores of Bolivia. The final confrontation between these two came in the comic “the Killing Ground”, and was one of the best fight scenes I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading.
