*** Even though those commercials do have rather a MisaimedFandom that sees the PC (played by [[Literature/TheAreasOfMyExpertise John Hodgman]] in the US and Creator/DavidMitchell in the UK) as a goofy, loveable underdog, while the Mac user is a posing hipster.

** The original ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy'' and ''Film/XMen'' films have seen an influx of ''Dark Knight'' fans flooding message boards since those movies are often seen as some of the best comicbook movies, regardless if the films are still being made or not.

* A minor and friendlier rivarly occurred among the filmmakers and fans of the ''Film/XMen'' franchise and ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy'' since both series kick-started the return of comic book movies for the new millenium with their second acts often being cited as some of the best superhero flicks ever made.

* ''Film/{{Hulk}}'' has a rivalry with ''Film/{{Logan}}'' because both are very intense and potential DarknessInducedAudienceApathy and revolve around similar symbolism with little to no humor. Some say that Logan is a rip-off of Ang Lee's Hulk, or that Hulk pales to Logan.

* In some cases, the ''Film/{{Carry On|Series}}'' film series vs ''Creator/MontyPython'', mostly due to the fact that ''Monty Python'' is commonly associated with the Creator/{{BBC}} and ''Carry On'' is often distributed on {{ITV}} (both dueling TV stations in themselves). Unintentionally, the fact that the ''Monty Python'' series hasn't been shown on television for years in Britain, yet ''Carry On'' occasionally gets an appearance a couple times a year, adds a bit of fuel to the rivalry pot.

* As with Creator/{{Sony}}'s ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries'', many fans of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse criticize ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' just for existing and maintaining {{Fox}}'s hold on the X-Men film rights, since they wish the rights would go to Marvel Studios. All the more since the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of Quicksilver already appeared in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' and is set to return in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''. And then there are accusations of Marvel trying to undermine Fox's success by downplaying its ''ComicBook/XMen'' marketing in the comics and cancelling its ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' titles, while playing up lesser-known concepts such as the ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy and Inhumans that will appear in its upcoming movies.[[note]]This is something it ''isn't'' doing with Franchise/SpiderMan, for obvious reasons, but Marvel is known to be on better terms with Sony than with Fox as well.[[/note]] Given that most of these franchise's box office draw comes from movie goers and not comic fans, however, one has to wonder how people got this assumption.

*** And in turn, [=TotalBiscuit=] fans and WebVideo/ExtraCredits fans don't get along very well due to their being on opposite ends of the political spectrum.

* Chevrolet vs. Ford is probably the great granddaddy of automotive rivalries in the US, especially for pickups. Foreign vs. domestic used to start fistfights in the 70's and 80's, but that feud has mellowed a bit over time. A ''bit''. "Foreign" cars are still banned from the parking lot of the headquarters of the United Auto Workers union in Detroit, though what's "foreign" and what's "domestic" has blurred quite a bit in more recent times.

* Going back to the 1950's, there's always been critical contention over who was the greatest Japanese film director at the time: Kenji Mizoguchi or Creator/AkiraKurosawa. Later on, Yasujiro Ozu became known outside of Japan and put a new spin on the debate.

* [[Creator/{{Apple}} iOS]] vs. [[Website/{{Google}} Android]]. The rivalry can make it hard to publicly admit having problems with your mobile device without being met with comments like "just switch to <other platform>!" In short, it's become the 2010's equivalent of the PC OS wars. Apple's keynotes in particular have turned into major chances for Android fans to rail on iPhones and their users for buying overpriced products with [[TheyCopiedItSoItSucks features that Android took up years ago]].

** The 2010's, with the advent of IM services tailored for mobile devices, has Kik vs. [=WhatsApp=] vs. LINE vs. [=KakaoTalk=] vs. [=WeChat=]. The former two tend to be bigger in Western countries, while the latter three are more popular in Eastern and Southeastern Asia, although [=WhatsApp=] does also have a sizable userbase in Southeastern Asia.

* Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} vs Wrestling/{{WSU}} vs SHINE, the three most prominent women's wrestling promotions in the USA. And all of them hold women's wrestling fans who only watch WWE in disdain.

** 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 Comicbook/TheJoker.

** And yet another one-sided rivarly has sprung up with TDKS fans trolling ''Film/TheHobbit''-related message boards, apparently since ''The Dark Knight Rises'' is geared to be the big film of 2012 alongside ''The Hobbit'. So far, most Hobbit fans seemed more dismayed than anything.
