* Starfox and {{Thanos}} the Mad Titan. Their father forced them to agree to meet once every thousand years on peaceful terms in the hopes that they would eventually stop fighting altogether. So far they haven't.

* ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'''s epic plot arc involves almost a hundred books devoted to ''the'' Cain(e) and Abel. Caine is turned into the first vampire for his crime, and thus begins so much purple prose, wangst and vampires gone to the extreme that an entire retread, TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem, was required just to put an end to Caine and his fanbase. Undeterred, entire fan cultures and anti-fan cultures sprang up around resurrecting Caine's importance to the series. Then it got resurrected for a 20th anniversary edition.
** The best part was the anticlimactic "endgame" scenario where Caine rallies all of the thousands of vampires on Earth to destroy his rebellious children, the Antediluvians. Abel's ghost appears, says he forgives him, and Caine blows it off like so much dishwater. Caine is a jerk.
** The Book of Nod contains a [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation reinterpretation]] of the story that makes Caine seem much more sympathetic and pins most of the blame on the G-man instead.[[spoiler: After Caine's first sacrifice failed to impress (God likes blood), he reluctantly chose to sacrifice his own beloved brother instead. But rather than being impressed at the depth of Caine's devotion, God just threw a fit and cursed him instead. So he ended up short one favourite brother AND God's favour.]]

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': Lelouch and Suzaku, in the childhood friends variety, although for a while they aren't even aware they're on opposite sides. It kicks into high gear after the WhamEpisode, though, when one of them ends up killing someone they both loved. Not only that, but the whole driving force behind the plot is Lelouch's revenge-fueled crusade to slaughter almost his ''entire family'' aside from his little sister.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': Lelouch and Suzaku, in the Suzaku were childhood friends variety, although friends, reunited and fighting for each others' countries, not their own. Lelouch knows at first that Suzaku is a while Britannian soldier, but he doesn't know how important he is to them. Similarly, Suzaku suspects that Lelouch is Zero from when he first meets Zero (when he says, "An old friend used to say that about me,"), but his suspicions are under about twenty layers of denial. When they aren't even aware they're on opposite sides. It kicks into high gear finally do find out the truth, it's after the WhamEpisode, though, when one a WhamEpisode neither of them ends up killing someone they can recover from...
** There's also the fact that Lelouch is actually a prince of TheEmpire that he's rebelling against, and as such, has to fight several of his siblings. None of them (save Euphemia, who wanted to make peace instead of fighting) had as close of a relationship with Lelouch as Suzaku did, though. But Lelouch is able to use things he knows as their brother against them - such as Cornelia's obsession with Euphemia. Unfortunately, [[XanatosSpeedChess that goes

* Yukari and Kuroh in ''Anime/{{K}}'' - Yukari turned on their master/[[HappilyAdopted adoptive father]]. In the movie that takes place between seasons 1 and 2, he returns as a Green Clansman, and Kuroh, [[spoiler: as a Silver Clansman]], is his enemy. Played with in that Yukari really does love Kuroh and wants to see him grow and become stronger, and regrets that they have to be enemies. When [[spoiler: Kuroh finally defeats him]], Yukari's reaction is simply "... beautiful." [[spoiler: Kuroh's refusal to kill Yukari after that is very heartwarming]].

* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag'' strongly suggests that the Assassin Opía Apito and the Templar Lucia Márquez were actually half-sisters, though neither woman seemed aware of this. The former is obviously Abel in that she was trying to protect her tribe from the Cain Lucia's attempted genocide of them for the (likely justified) death of her father at the tribe's hands.

* The death of a Sultan of the Ottoman Empire regularly resulted in his male sons eliminating each other until only one legitimate heir was left. This was a result of Muslim marriage customs and inheritance law, which established that any son who could claim patrilineal descent (regardless if the mother was one of the Sultan's wives, concubines or slaves) had a legitimate claim to the throne. The practice was eventually discredited, with exile or imprisonment (in luxury conditions) becoming the preferred option for dealing with rival claimants.
