* One more real-life example, though farcical: ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' actors NathanFillion and Jewel Staite engaged in a "war of birds". Each came up with more and more creative ways to [[FlippingTheBird flip the other off]]. Some people believe Jewel won the contest at Comic-Con 2005, when she got the entire audience at the ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' panel to flip Nathan off.

* Not really done ''to each other'', but in ''MoreInformationThanYouRequire, the cities of Richmond, VA and Milwaukee, WI are consistently one-upping each other for the title of "Strange Rain Capital of the United States". [[WidgetSeries It's that kind of book.]]

* ''Literature/TheButterBattleBook'' by Creator/DrSeuss. The Yooks and the Zooks argue how toast should be eaten, if it's better butter side up or down, so both sides develop weapons to harass each other until they both develop the "[[FantasticNuke Bitsy Big-Boy Bomberoo]]" and threaten the other by dropping it on the other's side. It ends with the narrator and his rival holding the bomb over the other's side, locked into a stalemate that threatens to kill both the Yooks and Zooks. Seeing how it was written as an analogy to the Cold War it makes sense that they both would come to this.

* The rivalry between [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilly_Devine Tilly Devine]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kate_Leigh Kate Leigh]], a pair of Australian mobsters in the 1920s who were at each other's throats for years, trying to sabotage each other's criminal enterprises through increasingly violent means. They mellowed out in their later years, by which we mean they turned to slander and libel before finally burying the hatchet in 1948.

* ''Series/TheMick'': Sabrina and Mick constantly go back and forth pranking each other to get the other under control. In the second episode, Sabrina admits that it's preferable to her grandmother's brutal and malicious domination.
-->'''Sabrina:''' At least Auntie Mick knew how to do a rivalry.

*** It looked like there was going to be another one of these in the season 10 episode "The Property Division Collision" but Sheldon went straight for the jugular by renting out his room to a stranger (Christopher Lloyd). After Leonard went over to tell Sheldon he went too far, the old guy came out and explained what the situation was and they made up, Sheldon even letting Leonard have the flag that the war was over.

* In Creator/{{Pixar}} short "WesternAnimation/OneManBand", the musicians go to increasingly absurd lengths, playing louder, busting out puppets, and eventually scaring the girl enough that she drops her coin down a storm drain.
