** Applejack is a solid and reliable hard worker, who will faithfully help her friends even at the risk of overextending herself. Rainbow Dash is BrilliantButLazy and would rather nap and save her work for the last moment. Some episodes display a FriendlyRivalry between the two.
** Subverted, however, when Rainbow Dash is pursuing her dreams of a Wonderbolt. She DOES try hard. She's also an example of HardWorkHardlyWorks.
** Twilight Sparkle is the studious pupil of Princess Celestia herself, who can always be found studying or using her powers of SuperOCD to organize an event. Pinkie Pie is a CloudcuckooLander who doesn't always pay close attention to whatever's going on and whose answer to any problem is to throw a party at it. Literally ''at it''; she has a '''party cannon'''.
** This is highlighted in the episode "Magical Mystery Cure", where Twilight accidentally swaps the destinies/lives of her friends. The playful Pinkie Pie is now an apple-farmer. This goes as well as can be expected.

* Sonic and Princess Sally in ''SonicSatam''. While Sonic is one of the most active Freedom Fighters, he tends to treat missions like a game and fool around, while Sally is a humorless workaholic who constantly berates him for being reckless. A lot of the time Sonic's careless attitude gives an opening for the villains, though he has occasional moments of brilliance.

** Played with with Dexter and [=DeeDee=] (respectively All Work and All Play), where there would be episodes where Dexter would be more relaxed like [=DeeDee=] or [=DeeDee=] more work-minded like Dexter only to turn back at the end. StatusQuoIsGod or an aesop of being yourself?

* On ''WesternAnimation/ClassOfTheTitans'', Jay is All Work and Neil is All Play. The others fall somewhere in the middle, and usually take turns trying to persuade Jay to loosen up a bit. (Getting Neil to be more serious is generally understood to be a lost cause.)

* From ''WesternAnimationGravityFalls'', the Pines brothers. As they grew up from childhood, Ford became all work, and Stan remained all play. This drove a wedge between the twins to the point that Ford was willing to abandon Stan for an (admittedly serious) honest mistake. While Stan has become a little better about this in his adult years, Ford largely remains at his extreme. Averted with their nephew and niece, Dipper and Mabel Pines. While Dipper is the more serious, mature twin, he certainly knows when to loosen up and have fun, and Mabel is playful and fun-loving, but knows when to be serious. [[CaptainObvious They get along a lot better than their uncles.]]
