* You do occasionally run into ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' versus ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry''. Yes, despite being two parts of [[Franchise/WhenTheyCry the same metaseries]], there's still debate over which is better.

* ''InitialD Arcade Stage'' vs. ''WanganMidnightMaximumTune''. Both are arcade racers based on manga franchises that cover the topic of illegal street racing, so it's easy to see where that one's coming from.

** Console and PC gamers, at least in the West, can agree on one thing: They ''hate'' {{Mobile Phone Game}}s and the people who play them, citing mobile games as UsefulNotes/{{Shovelware}} designed for "casuals".

* Within the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' fandom itself, the community is divided between fans who support the inclusion of third-party characters and Nintendo purists who think they shouldn't have been included to begin with. The controversy started with [[Franchise/MetalGear Snake]]'s inclusion in ''Brawl'' since at that point, unlike [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]], the ''Metal Gear'' series had very little relevance on Nintendo consoles, and that Snake was added in simply because Kojima begged Sakurai to include him since ''Melee''. With ''3DS/Wii U'' however, most of this controversy had died down a little since at the time, the only third-party characters were Sonic, [[Franchise/MegaMan Mega Man]], and [[VideoGame/PacMan Pac-Man]], and a lot of people wanted to see the four iconic gaming mascots slug it out together. But this controversy was soon re-heated shortly after with the inclusion of DLC characters like [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu]], [[VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} Bayonetta]], and especially [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud]].[[note]]Note that this was before ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyExplorers'' came out so at the time, Cloud had made absolutely no appearances on Nintendo consoles. Becoming a more controversial character than even Snake.[[/note]] Many Nintendo purists think that Sakurai has gone way too far with the third-party treatment while supporters absolutely rejoiced about their inclusions.

**Also within the fandom is the Melee vs. all others, but ESPECIALLY Brawl fans, concerning Melee's highly competitive playstyle compared to Brawl being designed for new players through use of nerfing and random tripping. Henceforth, they cite Melee as the "true" Smash Bros.

** There's a slight bit of dislike from (modern) Bemani fans towards general Konami fans, especially those disgusted with Konami's actions as of 2015 and 2016. While Bemani fans generally do agree with those fans about Konami's recent questionable decisions, it's jarring for someone who plays Bemani games to constantly hear about how Konami "doesn't make games anymore".

* ''MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' and ''{{Undertale}}'', at least for those for whom the latter is even on the radar. Both games came out the same month, andhe rivalry between them started over Metacritic scores, after ''Undertale'' quickly shot up and surpassed ''MGSV'' on the score charts, leading to a number of fans from both games creating sockpuppet accounts to try and change the user scores of each game. ''Undertale's'' creator, Toby Fox has directly contributed to the rivalry by posting the Metacritic charts on his Twitter and insinuating that most of the 0 score user reviews of ''Undertale'' were from bitter ''Metal Gear Solid'' fans.

** There's a sizable portion of the ''VideoGame/{{Mother}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fandoms that detest ''Undertale'' as well, given that [[OlderThanTheyThink its fans believe that the elements it "borrows" from those two series were created by Toby Fox.]]
