** America actually has more than two parties but you probably wouldn't know that since only the Democrats and Republicans ge tany attention. This leads to the always painful liberal vs. conservatives.

** The Mickey D vs BK rivalry is as nothing compared to Krystal vs White Castle.
*** To the extent that there is/used to be a billboard just across the Tennessee/Kentucky state line on I-65 North advertising "Last chance for Krystal" ahead.

** For handguns, the pre-eminent rivalry is undoubtedly 1911 vs. Glock. They could not be more opposite: the 1911 is a single-stack, heavy, all-steel, single action only hammer-fired gun with multiple external safety features (with both a thumb and a grip safety), while Glocks are double-stack [[labelnote:note]]Single-stack Glocks didn't exist until the Glock 36 was released in 2000, and it took another 14 years before GLock came out with another single-stack model with the G42[[/labelnote]], polymer-framed, lightweight, striker-fired guns with no external safeties (it has a trigger safety, which means it only fires if the trigger is pulled all the way back). Despite the fact that polymer guns have taken over the firearms market for civilians, law enforcement, and military, there are still lots of people who will swear by steel only and have no time for "plastic" guns, while those on the other side look at the 1911 and its contemporaries as obsolete relics from a by-gone era.

** This dispute is now further complicated by the New52 reboot, which means that the DC FanDumb is now divided into three camps: Pre Crisis; Post Crisis, Pre New52; and Post New52.

** Recently, this has been expanded into Batman fans vs fans of other DC superheroes.
* [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]] fans vs [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] fans
* Not as pronounced as it once was but ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} fans and ComicBook/SpiderMan fans used to have large grudges against one another.

* There is a clear division between Marvel fans who prefer TheSixties Marvel and those who prefer TheSeventies and beyond. Creator/StanLee was the driving force during the sixties with his distinctive writing style. He wrote most if not all of the comics during the early years. There is also the debate over how much Lee actually wrote. The 70s had a new glut of writers such as Marv Wolfman, Bill Mantlo, Chris Claremont, and Steve Gerber, all of whom dispensed with Lee's over the top, hip, chummy style. These writers created a edgier, more adult sensibility and often tackled sociopolitical issues head on. They introduced more subtext and occasional adult language. Also, these writers would make serious contributions to creating strong, independent female charactes, something that was clearly lacking in TheSixties. This would continue into TheEighties where sexual innuendos would start to be introduced. Under Lee, the sixties was mostly limited to superheroes. The seventies also introduced a large number of horror themed and non superhero characters such as ''Comicbook/{{Blade}}'', ''Comicbook/ThePunisher'', ''Comicbook/ManThing'', and of course ''Comicbook/{{Wolverine}}''. These writers would also create a rich cadre of complex supporting characters for each title, supporting non-superhero characters being a major deficiency during the 60s. It is also under a different writer (Claremont) that the Lee/Kirby created ''Comicbook/XMen'' went from a failed title to a reimagined hot title. To many advocates of 70s Marvel, Lee's co-creations seem flat and one dimensional. To many advocates of 60s Marvel, the 70s introduced too many violent antiheroes.

* ComicBook/XMen fans vs [[ComicBook/TheInhumans Inhumans]] fans. Originally the two didn't mind each other, but after a massive marketing push by Marvel billing the Inhumans as "the next big thing!", the two seemingly can't stand each other. This stems from the Inhumans going from their own unique thing to being SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitutes for the entire mutant race, which many feel is because of Marvel not owning the film rights to the X-Men.

* Franchise/{{Superman}}:
** Pre-Crisis Superman fans vs Post-Crisis Superman fans. Many advocates of the Pre-Crisis Superman think their hero was turned into a whiny wimp, his world became darker and duller and his backstory more convoluted; and they hate the way many iconic characters and large chunks of the mythos were removed because some creative types didn't care for Supergirl, Superboy, Krypto, Kryptonian lore or the ''Comicbook/LegionOfSuperHeroes''. Many advocates of the Post-Crisis Superman dismiss the classic stories and characters prior to 1985 as kiddie, dumb stuff.
** Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} Kara Zor-El fans vs Linda Danvers fans. The first -and considerably larger- group isn't interested in a Supergirl that isn't Superman's Kryptonian's cousin. The second group refuses to consider that other Supergirls may be good, worthwhile characters and bash Kara at every turn.



** You don't even have to leave the Pirates fandom to find a rivalry. Creator/JohnnyDepp fans love to attack Orlando Bloom fans on some forums, because they think Bloom is trying to copy him (apparently bearing a slight physical resemblance to someone = trying to be him in some minds). And then there's the [[ShipToShipCombat ship wars]] that break out over who Elizabeth should have ended up with.

** Another ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga'' rivalry has sparked with fans of the Burton directed Film/{{Batman}} movies. Particularly over whether Creator/JackNicholson or Creator/HeathLedger is better as SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker.

[[FanDumb Rapid fans]] of ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' are sometimes found [[{{Troll}} trolling]] the boards for ''Film/BatmanBegins'' and ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' on Website/IMDb, frustrating a lot of more casual fans.

** The rivalry came to a head with ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' and ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''. It started when the two movies were scheduled to release on the same day until DC moved their movie one month earlier which angered fans. Then the movies came out. [=BvS=] was lambasted by critics while Civil War was a critical hit. Many Civil War reviews fueled the fire by snidely referring back to [=BvS=], using the movie as a platform to get in jabs at Dawn of Justice. DC fans reacted by ''accusing Marvel of paying critics off'' and leaving fake reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB. The caused Marvel fans to respond by calling [=BvS=] overly pretentious etc.
* ''Film/ManOfSteel'' fans vs. fans of the Christopher Reeve movies. One side being a wild pack of ungrateful "highbrows," the other being a beehive full of bitter Methuselahs. Of course, real fa... I mean, plenty of fans like both, but that doesn't matter to the fans engaged in the rivalry.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' vs. ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'', largely because of the infamous advertising campaign used by WhiteWolf. "Graduate your game from third edition!" indeed. Also because many of ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'''s veteran fans started in ''TabletopGame/TheWorldOfDarkness'' and brought their hate to the table.

* ''WarhammerFantasy'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. Fantasy fans tend to look down on 40k fans because they consider 40k to be be "dumbed down", while the 40k fans consider fantasy to be duller than 40k and having some needlessly complex rules. Lots of people still play both, although they tend to play one more than other.
