* SitcomArchNemesis: This is largely what Sanji is to him despite being in the same crew (similar to Shanks and Buggy's relationship when they were on Roger's ship). These two never miss an opportunity to belittle, one-up, or humiliate the other. However, [[AwLookTheyReallyLoveEachOther they're equally willing to protect and defend each other when push comes to shove]].

** To Donquixote Doflamingo. Both are powerful, immaculately dressed fighters, with [[BadassNormal Sanji being [[KiManipulation a Haki user]] and Doffy being a Devil Fruit user, and they are both extremely talented [[TheChessmaster chessmasters]]. Sanji is a walking SpannerInTheWorks who ruins evil plans, while Doffy is a ManipulativeBastard who makes evil plans. Sanji is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who is a PrincelyYoungMan underneath and cares about his TrueCompanions no matter how much he argues with them, while Doffy's [[AFatherToHisMen kind treatment]] of his [[DysfunctionJunction pirate crew]] hides the insane, [[ItsAllAboutMe entitled]], [[{{Sadist}} sadistic]], [[{{Narcissist}} prideful]] scumbag who psychologically manipulates his "family" into serving as his tools and won't hesitate to discard them when it's convenient. [[spoiler:Both are children of royalty who left their cushy lifestyles as kids - Sanji willingly ran away from home (with the help of [[CoolBigSis Reiju]]) to escape a lifetime of abuse, while Doffy was forced to leave Mariejois by his naive father who wanted his family to live with the commoners the World Nobles lorded over. Both also have antagonistic relationships with their fathers and brothers; Judge, as well as Sanji's quadruplet brothers Ichiji, Niji, and Yonji saw him as a weak waste of space for lowering himself to feed animals and display compassion, both of which are frowned upon by the Vinsmokes, and never miss an opportunity to horrifically abuse him. Doffy hates his father for making him leave Mariejois and the perks of being a World Noble to live with "commoners", which eventually drove him to kill him, and also murdered his brother Rocinante/Corazon, who had been secretly opposing Doffy believing he was "born" evil, for siding with the Marines and feeding the Heart Heart Fruit to a then-young Law. The early deaths of their biological mothers, [[MommasBoy whom they]] [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas both adored]] became significant turning points in their lives - Vinsmoke Sora pulled a MamaBear when Judge decided to weaponize her quadruplet sons in utero, by secretly ingesting a dangerous drug that reversed her husband's experiments at the cost of her own life, allowing Sanji to "live" as a normal child who would eventually grow up to be the badass we know and love. Doffy's mother, however, died in extremely squalid conditions after her husband decided to make the entire family leave Mariejois, which drove Doffy to "death" - specifically, the act of murdering his father, implied to be because had the family stayed in Mariejois, his mother's illness would have been cured by the World Nobles' advanced medicine. What prevented Sanji from becoming like Doffy is his mother's aforementioned MamaBear that saved him from being born with utter LackOfEmpathy, and that he was surrounded with people who loved him for who he was and didn't hesitate to discipline him when he misbehaved, instilling in him a strong moral compass. Doffy had no such support; his "caretakers" (his four executives) only followed him around because of his awesome display of Conquerer's Haki, and kept enabling his already bratty behavior and existing god complex on the belief that he was destined for greatness, until both traits grew to epically monstrous proportions.]]

He and his siblings were genetically enhanced after birth and raised to be physically superior to the average human in order to lead the Germa 66's armies to their greatest victories.

Time will tell how this affects his worldview...
