* Fans of post ComicBook/{{Annihilation}} Cosmic Marvel and fans of Creator/JonathanHickman can get quite vocal against each other. It generally boils down to whether you like Hickman's stories enough to pass on the fact he quickly undid everything DanAbnett and Andy Lanning estabilished for many characters and teams, that didn't fit his vision.

** Another ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga'' rivalry has sparked with fans of the Burton directed Film/{{Batman}} movies. Particularly over whether JackNicholson or HeathLedger is better as SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker.
*** There's also a great feud between fans of MarkHamill's Joker from the Franchise/{{DCAU}} and fans of HeathLedger's Joker.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix'' versus ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', mostly because the protagonists (UsefulNotes/JohnAdams and UsefulNotes/AlexanderHamilton) absolutely detested each other in RealLife. In spite of the fact that ''Hamilton's'' author, Lin-Manuel Miranda, is a big fan of ''1776'' and cites it as an inspiration for his own show, Hamilfans have been known to disreccomend it just because it stars one of the many guys who hated their guy. (Never mind the fact that neither ''Hamilton'' nor ''1776'' shy away from the fact that both men were hugely flawed and generally gave people ''reason'' to hate them.)

** This rivalry likely crystallized in the 1980s - Sondheim's shows won critical raves, numerous Tony Awards and even the Pulitzer Prize. Webber's shows made lots of money and developed enormous fanbases, as well as won a few Tonys of their own. Sondheim's seen as smart and meaningful by lovers, cold and difficult by haters ("the songs are absolutely unhummable!"); Webber's seen as emotionally thrilling by lovers, shallow and dumb by haters ("you walk out whistling the sets and costumes.") The 1988 Tony Awards may perfectly encapsulate this rivalry: ''Theatre/IntoTheWoods'' won the Book and Score awards, but ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' won the Best Musical prize.
** Weirdly, though, the fandoms for the film versions of each of Sondheim and Webber's magnum opuses (''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'' and ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'', respectively, which were filmed within three years of each other and both produced by Warner Brothers) overlap pretty strongly, much to the chagrin of the ''stage'' fandoms for ''either'' musical, who tend to view ''both'' films as inferior compared to their sources.

* ''Theatre/LesMiserables'' vs ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' is a strange case. There are many people who are hardcore fans of both, but sooner or later, you must choose which side your loyalties are on.

* ''TanzDerVampire'' versus its short-lived American counterpart ''Dance of the Vampires''. Notable in that even the composer himself has called ''Dance'' "utter shit" on his blog. Still, there are fans out there who like the American version for taking itself less seriously. A happy minority tends to simply sit back and explain that they think both versions have their high points.

* FandomRivalry/{{Literature}}



[[folder:Literature]]
* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' vs. ''Literature/SwordOfTruth''. The animosity is mostly limited to the ASOIAF fans, who have made a long-running game of mocking the [=SoT=] series, its author Terry Goodkind, its fans, and its similarity to Ayn Rand's Objectivist philosophy (it's notable that George RR Martin is socially and economically quite left-wing). Animosity on the [=SoT=] side is mostly limited to reactions against this game.
* Literature/TheWheelOfTime vs. Literature/SwordOfTruth is far more flammable due to fans of the former accusing the latter of being nothing but a thinly-veiled ripoff.
* Some fans of ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' never pass an opportunity to point out that Harry Dresden would [[CurbStompBattle utterly destroy]] HarryPotter in a fight. Never mind the fact that the only similarity between the two characters that even warrants any comparison at all is that they're both wizards named Harry.
** There was some animosity between ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' and ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fans due to a misconception that ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' character Ponder Stibbons copied ''Harry Potter'', or the other way around. In reality, Creator/TerryPratchett has said that Creator/JKRowling is a friend of his. (And besides, Ponder appeared years before.)
*** Not to mention that the only thing Ponder and Harry have in common is that they are both students of wizardry. And, like 68% of the UK population, wear glasses.
*** In addition, Sir Terry made some comments criticising an interview with JK that some Potter fans interpreted as being critical of her. Similarly, his jokey line about "defeating evil by throwing a piece of expensive jewellery into a volcano" was seen as a "swipe" at Creator/JRRTolkien, whom he has praised to the rafters elsewhere. Pratchett's fans ''expect'' him to be ironic, even about things he likes, but those who aren't used to his style can take offence. And Discworld fans, who strive to be equally ironic, don't always help.
** When both ''Potter'' and ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' had their first movies within a month of each other, many comparisons were made, with small skirmishes between the two resulting. The two [[TheMentor mentor]] wizards (Richard Harris and Ian [=McKellen=]) even sniped at each other in the press.
*** When the first ''Potter'' film came out, ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' did a week's worth of strips with Jason, already established as a ''Rings'' fan, going up against Eileen Jacobsen, who turned out to be a ''Potter'' fan. (The last strip revealed that Jason secretly dressed up as Harry and went to the movie anyway.)
** Thanks to Creator/OrsonScottCard's fairly harsh criticism of Rowling for her lawsuit against the Harry Potter Lexicon, a few fans of ''Literature/EndersGame'' have turned against it too.
** There was a bit of a rivalry with ''The Literature/InheritanceCycle'', but that died out when people noticed that it was entirely manufactured by the marketers.
* The LoveItOrHateIt series ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' has inspired quite a few fandom rivalries.
** There's ''Potter'' vs. ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''. Never has such a fandom rivalry been so whipped up by the ''media itself''. ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'', like ''Potter'', is something of a literary phenomenon, and its [[FilmOfTheBook movie]] stars a Film/HarryPotter [[Creator/RobertPattinson alumnus]], so the two were constantly compared. They really have nothing in common though, apart from both being children's/young adult's fantasy series.
** A more interesting fact is that the ''Twilight'' vs '''Harry Potter'' war was whipped by the media constantly comparing the two, but then spread to the fandoms themselves on it own accord and media fanning the flames to ''that''. Harry Potter fans stated that a war between good and evil was a story much deeper than a teenage romance, the Twilighters claiming their series is "sexier and more mature then HP (sic)".
** Made worse, when asked "who would win" with Harry versus Edward, Creator/StephenieMeyer didn't just say "Edward would win due to having SuperSpeed", she said "Edward would '''kill Harry''' because his SuperSpeed makes him faster than wizards shooting wands at each other. You can't say something like that without InternetBackdraft, folks.
** To a lesser extent, [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffyverse]][=/=]traditional vampires[=/=]AnneRice fans. They seem to imply that a true vampire genre fan could never like the blasphemy of Twilight or the take on the female lead when Whedon created such a strong female. However Whedonesques are usually very civil on expressing their dislike of the saga, while not bashing it or its fans.
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZwM3GvaTRM Speaking of Twilight and Buffy...]]
** ''Harry Potter'' fans joined themselves to avoid the ''Eclipse'' movie from trending on Twitter on the day of its midnight release.
** ''Literature/TheHungerGames'' fans are almost always sided with Potter. There are even "District 9¾" alliance pages on Facebook. Some are former Twilight fans, as Creator/StephenieMeyer's rave review brought ''The Hunger Games'' to the attention of many, frequently resulting in readers realizing how much better ''The Hunger Games'' is than ''Twilight''.
** And then, of course, we always have that small group of pretentious elitist snobs who believe that kids should instead be reading Carroll and Twain and that adults should be reading Austen and Faulkner.
* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' versus ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'' serves as a microcosm for Christianity versus atheism.
** On the Narnia fans' side, it was primarily caused by the author of ''His Dark Materials'' loudly criticizing the Narnia series. You can't say stuff like that without causing a fandom war, folks.
* For some time there was an entirely ''mock'' rivalry between Creator/IsaacAsimov and Creator/HarlanEllison, who in real life were close friends: Ellison brought it to an end, because his regard for Asimov was so great he was worried fans would take the rivalry as real.
* There exists a minor rivalry between ScienceFiction and {{Fantasy}}. Some, like author Creator/DavidBrin, regard fantasy as inherently [[ScienceIsWrong anti-science]] and [[DemocracyIsBad pro-authoritarian.]]
* Fans of Creator/JaneAusten vs. fans of the Bronte sisters. Charlotte Bronte personally never liked Jane Austen's work herself, and many fans of Austen's romantic comedies and the Bronte sisters' DarkerAndEdgier Gothic romances dislike the other's works.
* LitFic fans vs fans of SpeculativeFiction.
** LitFic fans vs fans of any genre based writing for that matter.
** Fans of the classic books vs. fans of popular contemporary books.
* ''Literature/BattleRoyale'' fans (book, movie and manga alike, who also have their own rivalries) vs. ''Literature/TheHungerGames'' fans. Fans of ''Battle Royale'', often {{Hipster}}s, frequently accuse Suzanne Collins of having ripped it off in writing ''The Hunger Games'', an accusation that ''HG'' fans counter by noting that ''BR'''s plot itself [[Literature/LordOfTheFlies isn't]] [[GladiatorGames all]] [[Literature/TheRunningMan that]] [[Literature/TheLongWalk original]]. ''The Hunger Games'' fans also will point out that THG condemns child-on-child violence where ''Battle Royale'' glorifies it with heaping helpings of {{Gorn}}, that ''The Hunger Games'' has more developed characters than ''Battle Royale'', and that ''The Hunger Games'' has deep political themes, clever social commentary and literary value whereas ''Battle Royale'' is just mindless violence for the sake of mindless violence. Just check the comments section on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-T7yPJVvXw this trailer]] for the ''BR'' movie... it isn't pleasant.
** Collins has stated that she had never heard of ''Battle Royale'' until her publishers brought it up to her. She has stated that the inspirations for ''The Hunger Games'' were the legend of the Minotaur in the Labyrinth and channel-surfing between horrifying news of war and superficial reality television.
* Within the Franchise/CthulhuMythos, some fans prefer Creator/HPLovecraft's original inscrutable, human-morality-means-diddly-squat vision of CosmicHorrorStory, while others have no problem with August Derleth's belated addition of good-vs-evil and four-element themes to the Mythos. Even the "Lovecraft Circle" itself had members who'd argued over this one.
* There's a small degree of this between ''{{Literature/Animorphs}}'' and ''Literature/{{Everworld}}'', due to the fact that K.A. Applegate (the husband-and-wife team of KatherineApplegate and MichaelGrant) left to work on Everworld, the Animorphs series was largely ghostwritten, and suffered because of it. Fortunately, nothing gets too overly heated.
* ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' fans have had some disagreements with ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fans over some comments Terry made that, while they definitely established he was a Tolkien fan, had a bit of a backhanded feel to them. Conversely, some Discworld fans see Middle-Earth as everything Discworld is saying fantasy shouldn't be.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':
** The infamous ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' vs. ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure Digimon]]'' wars. When ''Anime/YuGiOh'' joined in, it became a MeleeATrois. ''Anime/{{Beyblade}}'' and ''Anime/MonsterRancher'' sometimes get thrown into the mix too. It started when both fandoms claimed that one was a rip-off of the other, as they were out at around the same time. The fighting got to the point that a lot of people decided that anyone who was a fan of both [[WithUsOrAgainstUs wasn't really a fan on their side]]. Adding to it, Digimon was an evolution of ''Virtual Pets''; something Pokemon never stepped into until gen 6, save for the heavily forgotten Pokemon Pikachu pedometer, and even then the Pokewalker was just adding onto it. Digimon added fighting to it for an advanced "pet" feel, with more and more tougher forms as they evolved. Pokemon was more or less an evolution alone of any RPG; they only added Evolution in exchange of special skills, weapons, and so on.
** Then ''WesternAnimation/{{Chaotic}}'' came along and soon this conflict is worthy of an {{FPS}} and {{RTS}}.
** ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' stepped down after ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' came in, seeing as some kids stopped watching it after ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 02]]'' ended. Also, for a while, there was ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' vs. ''Anime/DuelMasters''.
** Beckett Magazine played up these rivalries in their covers.
** In some places it was ''Pokémon'' vs. ''Digimon'' vs. ''Manga/DragonBall''.
** ''Pokémon'' vs. ''Anime/{{Bakugan}}'' isn't uncommon. The tension between fans of both series, young and old, is so thick you can cut it with a knife.
** Rivalries between fans who prefer the games and fans who prefer the anime and/or manga can get rather heated as well.
** ''Anime/PokemonOrigins'' vs The Traditional Anime was big when the former came out. ''Origins'' is TruerToTheText, darker than the anime, and is aimed at older fans. There's quite a bit of "Red vs Ash" (who are both based o n Red from the games, by the way) going around.
** Sometimes it has been the whole rest of the Anime fandom against ''Pokemon'' due to feelings that Americans got a wrong impression of anime from it (especially with the 4Kids dub) or that they didn't realize there was other, and better in their view, anime out there.
** This trope really came into effect once ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' was released internationally. Western fans were already distasteful prior to the localization due to people calling it "the Pokemon killer" but the tension got worse when the main English dub came out. There are some who prefer the ''Pokemon'' anime while others who think the ''Yokai Watch'' is of higher quality, especially due to the dubbing quality, Nate being perceived as a better protagonist than the MemeticLoser Ash, and the [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar more risque]] jokes. The plans to ReTool the series for ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' into a school-based series with more focus on comedy and a redesigned art style has further fueled tensions on both sides; with fans of ''Yo-Kai Watch'' accusing ''Pokémon'' of ripping them off and ''Pokémon'' fans blaming ''Yo-Kai Watch'' for the rebranding to compete.
* There's ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'' fans vs ''Manga/PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure'' fans as they're the two most popular manga internationally. The former is on-going while the latter only adapted ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' so ''Adventures'' has more fans, but that doesn't stop debates on which had the better Sinnoh adaptation.
* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' versus ''VisualNovels/{{SchoolDays}}. This one started over the "Nice Boat Incident" involving the murder of a Japanese police chief. While School Days merely got its final episode postponed, there were plans to outright cancel the Higurashi anime, right around the time of the big reveal of the identity of the BigBad. The media was also much harsher on Higurashi with far fetched logic and outright misrepresentation of the series narrative trying to connect the series to the murder. Needless to say, the fandoms have not gotten along ever since.
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' versus ''Anime/SailorMoon'', what with the shows being complete opposites in every way besides being anime aired in the 90s. FoeYay is common. The fact that they occupied the same timeslot for quite a while didn't help... Although it is HilariousInHindsight, seeing as how the two shows were produced by [[HateDumb THE EXACT SAME COMPANY]] (Creator/ToeiAnimation), and seem to have very similar animations styles.
* Amongst the ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' you'll also have the Creator/{{Funimation}} dub vs Creator/TheOceanGroup dub battles.
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'':
** For some reason, most likely due to both airing on Creator/AdultSwim, one of these existed for a while between ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' and ''Manga/InuYasha'' fans.
** Also within ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' fandom between fans of the manga and its direct anime adaptation ''Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood'', and [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist the loose 2003 adaptation]]. It's mostly died off now that the manga is over, though you can still find fights about it sometimes on Website/{{Tumblr}} and other places where flamewar-loving fanboys and fangirls gather.
* There are many conflicts between the fanbases of the various ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' shows, but the classic one is UC vs ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]''.
** A more recent one is ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny Gundam SEED Destiny]]'' vs. every other ''Gundam'' series. (The unfortunate thing about this is that ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' - a good series in its own right - gets dragged into the hatedom.)
** Lets not forget about ''[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]]'' vs. ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'', ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' vs. ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'', ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'' vs. ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'', and most recently a tag team match between ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'' vs. ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Gundam Unicorn]]'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamAge Gundam AGE]].''
** Made a lot more apparent with ''Anime/GundamReconguistaInG'' and ''Anime/GundamBuildFightersTry'', since both shows began airing at the same time, with barely a week in between releases.
** To a certain extent, this can be simplified down to UC ''Gundam'' versus everything else. There are just some UC fans that won't accept anything else at all.
*** Another example is other RealRobot shows vs. the ''Gundam'' franchise. ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' vs. ''Gundam'' still fires up every now and again, but another one that's... interesting to say the least is stuff like ''Anime/FangOfTheSunDougram'' and ''Anime/ArmoredTrooperVOTOMS'' and subsequent debates of whether they are better than ''Gundam ''or not. If you're a fan of ''Dougram'' or ''VOTOMS'', and you insinuate that ''Gundam'' is unrealistic and too close to SuperRobot shows, [[InternetBackdraft the gates of hell have been opened]]. On the flipside, if a ''Gundam'' fan tries to point out that, say, [[Anime/ArmoredTrooperVOTOMS Chirico Cuvie]] has just as much as, if not more "plot haxs" than any given Gundam Pilot, expect a small vocal minority of ''VOTOMS'' faithfuls to [[FandomHeresy swear to GIRUGAMESH to kill you.]]
*** Recently over on /m/, with the VOTOMS's apparance in ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}2'', alongside ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'' and other Gundam titles, there has been some....rather heated debate. it led to everyone who likes VOTOMS being called "hipsters" who hate anything that is popular, while this in itself led to a lot of trolling, it came full circle when someone pointed out that Gundam fans on the same imageboard are pots calling the kettle black, and routinely complain about ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'' for, you guessed it, being popular and not being like UC Gundam (see above). and it led to THEM being called "hipsters". and now it's sort of a meme now to call everything that gets discussed there "is for hipsters"
** ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' vs ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' - in TheNineties ''EVA'' in manga format and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'' were the only two positions from HumongousMecha genre on the market, leading some people to believe that ''EVA'' is deep and intelligent while Gundam, all of it, is stupid. While mostly discredited, this stereotype prevails to this day, much to annoyance of Gundam fans. On the other hand, the opposing stereotype is that ''Gundam'' is CloserToEarth, whereas ''EVA'' is snooty and pretentious. This view, unlike the other, holds much ''more'' of a sway over today's anime fandom.
* For over the past decade, the most popular shonen battle anime/manga (at present writing) are ''Manga/OnePiece'', ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' and ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', generally referred as the [[FanNickname Big 3]]. Since they're all the same genre, they have a similar core story structure, so it's entirely possible to enjoy more than one at the same time. However, it's also ''because'' of those similarities that fans of ''all three'' are at a MeleeATrois, but it's surprisingly evened out: for every one fan who likes one and dislikes two, others like two and dislike one, while just as many like all of them equally.
** More recently, ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' has quickly established itself as a powerhouse in Japan. Some are already saying that it's replacing ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' as a flagship manga for ''Magazine/ShonenJump'' (in light of ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'s'' anime ending), and the author of ''Manga/OnePiece'' himself has declared ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' as his biggest rival. However, until the anime arrives overseas, we're uncertain of whether or not the western fandom will enjoy ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' quite as much to include it in the discussion.
** Occasionally, ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' would have been added to the mix, with the debate centering on whether it's too different to compare to the other three, and if not, whether it's the best out of the four. Notably, that discussion is far less heated (especially once FMA ended), if only due to FMA fans having their ''own'' Fandom Rivalry ''within their own base'' (e.g. the first anime vs the manga and the second anime, as mentioned earlier).
** In spite of both having their anime version end prematurely, ''Manga/FairyTail'' and ''Manga/BlueExorcist'' are creeping their way into the debate, though neither are in the same level as ''{{Toriko}}'' right now. The argument over ''Fairy Tail'' is whether it has the deepest character relationships, or if it's too much of a {{Fanservice}}-laden series. The argument over ''Blue Exorcist'' is between those who feel it [[PlayingWithATrope plays around with]] a lot of supernatural show tropes, and those who think it's a generic shonen with prettier characters. Though since the ''Fairy Tail'' anime has resumed, its possible that it might be able to establish itself better.
*** Meanwhile, fans of ''Fairy Tail'' and fans of ''One Piece'' are often at each others' throats due to the similar art styles and how ''Fairy Tail'''s author Hiro Mashima vehemently denies being influenced by anything related to ''One Piece''.
** ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn!'', surprisingly, has avoided much of this discussion, but there are still some sections that debate about it all the same. The argument over the series is whether it has great CharacterDevelopment on the protagonists, or if its CastFullOfPrettyBoys is too much of a shoe-in for female-oriented FanService.
* In UsefulNotes/{{Brazil}}, ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' vs. ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. The former was the "breakout anime" of the country and the one which opened the doors for many other to come due its huge success. The latter came some years after and was another huge hit and the comparisons started, as well the fights between the fandoms. Sometimes ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' is dragged into the mix (the one who replaced Saint Seiya after so many reruns), although both Brazilian fandoms praise Yuyu despite the disagreements about which one is better and despite Yuyu fandom being very vocal, saying Yuyu Hakusho is way better than Dragon Ball Z and Saint Seiya.
** ''Anime/SailorMoon'' and ''SaintSeiya'' were pretty divisive in some parts of Latin America during the time they aired, mostly a shonen-vs-shoujo, or more to the point, boys-vs-girls type of rivalry.
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' and ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' had some of this, as the two shows aired only a few days apart and are essentially polar opposites in terms of content, [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism worldview]], and [[MohsScaleOfScienceFictionHardness "hardness"]]. This is made more amusing with the English voice cast, where they both feature YuriLowenthal as a passionate idealist and JohnnyYongBosch as a calculating, sometimes NecessarilyEvil pragmatist, as main cast members whose ideals clash with each other. The difference is that Yuri is the star of ''Gurren Lagann'' and Johnny is the star of ''Code Geass'', with the other's ideals being portrayed as misguidedly LawfulStupid. ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}2'' almost seems to [[FandomNod nod and wink]] to this conflict by having Kamina and Zero dislike each other at first (Kamina thinks Zero is too shady, Lelouch thinks Kamina is just a loud meathead) before they establish a mutual trust and respect [[FireForgedFriends by fighting alongside one another]].
* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' vs. ''Manga/KOn''...
** If [[http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2009/05/22/haruhi-second-season-begins/ this thread]] is any indication. To put it simply, the former group was blaming the latter for their lack of a second season of their show. But with [[ArcFatigue Endless Eight]] rearing its ugly face, guess which side had the final laugh on virtue of not raging hard at itself.
** Several ''Haruhi'' fans are blaming ''K-On!'' for the OffModel way Haruhi has been drawn in (her upper teeth showing and her head being rounded at the edges). Never mind the fact KyoAni [[OlderThanTheyThink first used that style]] on their ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'' adaptation. But it seems [[FleetingDemographicRule everyone forgot about Clannad already]]... This is because some people don't understand the concept of an Art Director.
** Mind you, if Haruhi EVER enters a power level battle discussion, it'll be outright chaos as people argue who is stronger out of Haruhi and your favourite mecha that jumped out of Pandora's box.
** To muddle things even more, many Haruhi fans jump to the movie as an argument. Given the praise of the movie, many turn around and then argue that ''K-On!'' is to blame for ruining the 2nd Season and that it would have been amazing had time not needed to be split.
** Also, a lot of [[HumongousMecha Mecha]] and[[{{Tokusatsu}} Toku]] fans absolutely '''despise''' ''K-On!'' (and to a lesser extent, ''Manga/LuckyStar'' and Haruhi) due to the decline in mecha series and the ensuing [[FollowTheLeader market saturation]] of series about [[FourGirlEnsemble four schoolgirls engaging in zany hijinks]] designed to be as {{Moe}} as possible.
* ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' versus ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'': Many ''Macross'' fans look at ''Robotech'' as a [[{{Macekre}} bastardized Americanization]]. Some ''Robotech'' fans consider the addition of ''Anime/SuperDimensionCavalrySouthernCross'' and ''Anime/GenesisClimberMospeada'' to the original ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' storyline to improve all three series, or at least prefer them to the official ''Macross'' sequels. The ''Robotech'' fandom is also split between people who enjoyed the licensed RPG, comic book adaptations, or novelizations, and the "purists" who treated all the spin-off material as bastardizations.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' vs. ''Anime/RahXephon'': Fans of the former accuse the latter of copying many elements from their series (as well as ''End of Evangelion'' to a lesser extent) while fans of the latter counter by saying theirs is superior critically. It did not help either side that the plots for both anime franchises were very tightly merged together in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsMX''.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'':
** ''Puella Magi Madoka Magica'' vs. ''Manga/InfiniteStratos'' for domination of the winter 2011 anime season. ''IS'' fans insist that ''Madoka'' is [[{{Deconstruction}} pretentious]] while ''Madoka'' fans consider ''IS'' to be another stupid generic [[UnwantedHarem harem]] show.
** Speaking of ''Madoka'', looks like ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha]]'' fans are gearing up for a [[http://nanofate.us/content/sample-2c9f8cf70b915f9e showdown]] about being dethroned as the most popular non-standard magical girl series.
** ''Madoka'' fans also do heated battle with fans of classic magical girl shows like ''Manga/SailorMoon'', ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'', and ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' due to the vastly differing tones. ''Madoka'' fans often dislike classic magical girl series for being [[GirlShowGhetto feminine]] or "boring", while classic fans hate how DarkerAndEdgier ''Madoka'' is and often believe that it's ruining the genre by making series actually aimed at little girls DeaderThanDisco.
** There is one with the fanbase of ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' over which is the better {{Deconstruction}} of the genre, if ''Madoka'' is considered a deconstruction at all.
** The more recent ''Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure'' has gotten a lot of ire from the ''Madoka'' fandom as they perceive the series to be a TakeThat towards them as the characters can achieve their dreams without being punished for it, act selflessly for others without expecting to benefit from it, etc.
** ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' is another Magical Girl deconstruction who's fans occasionally butt heads with ''Madoka'''s fans, to the point that it's been said that if one were to have watched ''Tutu'' first, they would have hated ''Madoka''.
** Fans of the character Madoka have rivaled LightNovel/{{Haruhi|Suzumiya}} fans over [[spoiler:which one is the "real" [[MessianicArchetype God figure]]]].
** ''Madoka'' is often compared to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. However, on [[Website/FourChan /a/]], it's probably best to keep ''Madoka'' fans and ''Evangelion'' fans at least five miles apart, especially with the movies for both franchises playing in late 2012. Needless to say, both argue over which is the better DarkerAndEdgier DeconstructorFleet series.
** ''Madoka'' and ''Anime/YukiYunaIsAHero'' are often compared and the fandoms butt heads a lot. Both have middle schooler pink haired MagicalGirl protagonists and blonde CoolBigSis characters [[spoiler:who break down at least once]]. With the revelation that ''Yuki Yuna Is A Hero'' [[spoiler:is just as dark as ''Madoka'', if not worse,]] the rivalry really got heated. ''Madoka'' fans often consider ''Yuki Yuna'' a poor [[FollowTheLeader ripoff]] of the series while ''Yuki Yuna'' fans often believe it improved on ''Madoka''.
** The ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'' and ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' fandoms get this due to the fact they're both DarkerAndEdgier deconstructions of counterpart genres (mecha and magical girl). The fact that ''Madoka'' had a reference to ''Bokurano'', which means the writers at least know of the series, doesn't help.
* Having produced [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya some]] [[Manga/KOn of]] [[LightNovel/BakeMonogatari the]] [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica biggest]], most revolutionary anime blockbusters of TurnOfTheMillennium and TheNewTens, some rivalry has developed between KyotoAnimation and Creator/StudioShaft.
* ''Manga/{{Nichijou}}'':
** For the spring 2011 season, there's a small rivalry between ''Manga/AChannel'' and ''Manga/{{Nichijou}}'', especially because of a simple timeslot conflict. ''A Channel'' fans cry ScrewedByTheNetwork; ''Nichijou'' fans call "FollowTheLeader" and "bland" for the former.
** The ''Nichijou'' fandom also has a strong rivalry with fans of ''Manga/DailyLivesOfHighSchoolBoys'' (''Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou''), or [[FanNickname "Nichibros"]], over which anime with "Nichijou" in the title is superior.
* Fans of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' vs. fans of ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven''. ''Inazuma Eleven'' fans label ''Pokémon'' as having no progress despite its LongRunner status, ''Pokémon'' fans label ''Inazuma Eleven'' a shallow and contrived series that is hated for stealing ratings in Japan. It's even more intense when fans outside Japan were factored. ''Inazuma Eleven'' is much more popular in Britain due to the footing soccer has there, while ''Pokémon'' is one of the GatewaySeries to American anime fans, and the US as a whole couldn't care less about soccer. Though it doesn't seem that bad in Japan itself, as there's quite a bit of crossover fanart in Pixiv, and it even has it's own tag: pokeire.
* ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'' and ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' are two of the most popular DarkerAndEdgier mecha deconstructions. There is a large amount of debate on which series does it best.
* Fans of ''Manga/LuckyStar'', ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'', ''Manga/HidamariSketch'', and ''Manga/KOn'' have been known to be bitter toward each other as they're all comedic SliceOfLife series based around young girls. Occasionally ''Manga/StrawberryMarshmallow'' gets added to the mix.
* Fans of ''Anime/CasshernSins'' vs. fans of ''Anime/ErgoProxy''.
* Fans of ''Anime/VoltesV'' vs. fans of ''Anime/{{Voltron}}''. Particularly infamous in some corners of fandom, where ''Voltes V'' proponents will slam ''Voltron'' as a rip-off and dedicate fanfiction and videos to the characters being slaughtered or [[RonTheDeathEater made out to be villains]] threatening the ''Voltes V'' team. Flamewars will spark over which giant robot would wipe the floor with the other, and whether or not the "Voltron" title plagiarized the "Volt" in ''Voltes'' (fans who point out that the original title was ''Anime/GoLion'' tend to get ignored in the shuffle). The arguments all boil down to which FiveManBand series is the legitimate and superior title, whether or not the latter was plagiarism, and if it's possible for fans of either to enjoy both.
* In the Spring2013Anime season, we had ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet'' and the (continuing into [[Summer2013Anime summer]]) ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', both animated by Creator/ProductionIG. Some ''Titan'' fans blamed ''Gargantia'' for "stealing" some of their better animators and money, resulting in some OffModel scenes and still shots (even though many of those stills originated in the ''Attack on Titan'' manga). It didn't help that ''Titan'' Episode 6 featured some of the most egregrious stills and "QUALITY", while ''Gargantia'''s Episode 6 featured a particularly well-animated bellydancing scene.
* It happened with ''Anime/MajesticPrince'' and ''Anime/ValvraveTheLiberator'' in 2013 as both were mecha anime that premiered on the same day despite have nothing in common aside from being in the same genre and being loaded with {{Fanservice}}; MJP fans often take it a step further with claims of how well received their anime was while ''Valvrave'' was comparatively panned, and in turn the fans of the other show countered that ''Majestic Prince'' sold less copies.
* After ''Valvrave'' aired it gained heavy panning on [[Website/FourChan /m/]], so much so that it even gained an averted rivalry between whether or not it was worse than ''Gundam SEED Destiny''. ''Destiny'' haters proclaim it is worse due to switching the main characters at the last quarter, a "flawless victory" style ending, a lack of coherence in plot details near the end, and angsty or poorly written characters (mainly Shinn and Kira, respectively); ''Valvrave'' haters proclaim it is worse due to the first half having crippling slow pacing that brought down the second half, many plot twists that amount to nothing outside of shock value (mainly time skips), being excessively mean spirited (especially to its main characters), background characters becoming incredibly important before being killed off, and the main cast accomplishing very little with a high toll while the underdeveloped faction (ARUS) ended up saving the world while the ending credits rolled.
** In recent years ''Valvrave'' hatred has squared off against other recent mecha anime including ''Daimidaler'', ''Dai Shogun'', ''Captain Earth'', ''Gundam: Reconguista in G'', ''Cross Ange'', ''Aquarion EVOL'', ''Eureka Seven AO'', ''M3'', and ''Aldnoah.Zero''. In terms of previously aired shows ''InfiniteRyvius'' seems to have the most comparisons and hatred, even more than ''SEED Destiny'' due to both shows having many of the same tropes.
* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' fans and ''LightNovel/LogHorizon'' fans, due to similar premise of their respective series. Out of all rivalries mentioned here, this is ''easily'' the most violent of them all, so much so that it's pretty much considered suicidal to refer to both SAO and LH in the same sentence in, well, any anime-specialized website.
** ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' and ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', namely because both lead characters in are called [[NamesTheSame The Black Swordsman]], not helped by the fact that these two characters are ''complete opposites'' in terms of personality.
** ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' vs ''LightNovel/AccelWorld'' due to being released around the same time and being action based anime with an emphasis on virtual reality. The catch is, [[HateDumb both series are made by the same author and take place in the same universe.]]
** And let's not forget about ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' vs ''Franchise/DotHack''. Many fans of the latter accuse the former for stealing its premise and being considered "original" when the fact is that [[OlderThanTheyThink both series actually debuted in the same year (2002)]]. ''Sword Art Online'' then was just a pilot web novel meant to be an entry for a contest. It didn't become a fully published series until 7 years later.
** On another scale, there was ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' vs. ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' for the dominant anime of 2013.
* ''Anime/BloodPlus'' and ''Anime/BloodC'' fans remained at each other's throats. The former regarded the latter as the worst in the ''Blood'' franchise and Saya Kisaragi as a FailureHeroine who can't save lives while the latter find Saya Otonashi as useless who keeps depending on Haji. There's also those who like the [[Anime/BloodTheLastVampire original OVA]] but regarded the two spinoffs as cheap knockoffs.
* In all honesty, fans of ''older'' anime vs. fans of ''newer'' anime. Sometimes it can be as subtle as [[http://kotaku.com/how-anime-art-has-changed-an-explainer-1656750480 pointing out the evolution of anime over the years]], but then you get frequent discussions over which generation is better. For starters, some fans of the former dislike the latter for being too overly saturated with FanService and emphasis on {{Moe}}, saying how today's generation is putting less focus on the story and the action in favor of cuteness appeal, copy-and-paste characters, and [[{{Ecchi}} sexual themes]]. Fans of the latter however will often say that today's cleaner visuals are a vast improvement over the rugged hand-drawn style of the former, and that the animation is more fluent and top-notch in quality. As such, they will often call out the former fans for not giving the newer anime enough credit and that their nitpicks are just based on NostalgiaFilter. This discussion has been going on for as recently as the last decade so far.
* Fans who stream their anime from licensed services vs. fans who watch fansubbed anime stored locally on their devices. The former often cite supporting the anime industry and having more free space on their devices, while the latter criticize official streaming services for their poor subtitle and translation quality and don't want to have to be connected online to get their fix.
* ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'' has an in-universe example between two Sensha-Do styles. The Euro-Asian Classic Style uses panzers in as near mint condition as possible, whereas the American Unlimited Style emphasizes heavy customization.
* Fans of ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' are stuck in a bitter rivalry between the 1999 anime and the 2011 anime, similar to the ''[=FMA=]'' fandom. The two sides are constantly clashing due to the question of which is overall better and what each does better than the other.
* Then there's the idol anime war, which is ''Anime/TheIdolmaster'' vs. ''Anime/LoveLive'' vs. ''VideoGame/{{Aikatsu}}'' vs. ''VideoGame/PriPara''. This plays into what Viga of ''WebVideo/IdolsOfAnime'' calls the "Idol [[UsefulNotes/SengokuPeriod Sengoku Jidai]]" of the 2010s, with spillover rivalries between real life idol groups (MorningMusume, {{AKB48}}, MomoiroCloverZ, etc) and anime idol groups.
* Related to the above example of anime generations, there's been a lot of scrutiny as of late regarding the {{Moe}} genre which further divided anime fans into two groups: pro-Moe and anti-Moe, at least outside of Japan. The latter group simply hates Moe because they think that it is over-saturated to the point where it is killing the anime industry as a whole, and that Moe has been dominant in Japan for over [[TheNineties three]] [[TurnOfTheMillennium consecutive]] [[TheNewTens generations]] and is long overdue for a change. Sometimes outright demanding that anime should go back to its pre-1990s routes or follow the examples of more recent shounen works like ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' and ''Manga/OnePunchMan''. The former group however will call out the latter group saying that the hate is really uncalled for, and that Moe has been really influential in helping to shape the anime industry into one of Japan's economic backbones. Therefore, they tend to be more passive and say that it really depends on personal preference of whether or not you like Moe and is not worth making a big deal out of it. Whether this Moe scuffle will ever reach a consensus between the two groups is a matter of debate, but it can be agreed upon that Moe has had a prominent role in the anime industry regardless of the love-hate relationship.
* SubbingVersusDubbing. The debate was even worse during the economic recession around TheNewTens, but a lot of this comes from personal preferences. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement Mind that if you will]].
* Of the major anime distributors, there is the Creator/{{Funimation}} fans vs. Creator/SentaiFilmworks fans. The former will often criticize Sentai Filmworks for their rushed releases, poor dubbing direction, and using niche voice actors while the later will often criticize Funimation for monopolization of the anime industry and dubious marketing strategies and releases (particularly with Kadokawa Pictures titles). Regardless, Funimation vs. Sentai Filmworks is considered to be one of the biggest rivalries of the anime industry (both fanbase and business wise).
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' has a rather brutal civil war going on. Pick a season, any season, and no matter how you felt about it someone out there will tell you how wrong you are. And Goddramon help you if you so much as ''mention'' ''Anime/DigimonFrontier''.
* There's a rivalry between "classic" and "modern" SportsStories fans. Fans of pre-2000s series like ''Manga/SlamDunk'', ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo'', and ''Manga/AshitaNoJoe'' believe that newer series are [[BishonenJumpSyndrome trying]] [[HoYay too hard]] to pander to female fans and aren't focused on sports enough, while fans of newer works like ''Manga/BigWindup'', ''Manga/{{Haikyuu}}'', and ''Manga/DiamondNoAce'' often find older series displeasing for the opposite reasons.
* Spats between fans of the various "-dere" archetypes aren't uncommon. {{Tsundere}} versus {{Yandere}} are the most common because they're the two most popular. There's also "classic tsundere" versus "modern tsundere" (post-ShanaClone era) fans.
** Relating to ShanaClone above, there are also the fans of the "Four Tsundere Wonders". Most of the time, they're either FriendlyFandoms or VitriolicBestBuds, but in the rare cases a rivalry does spur between the fans, it will be a four-way squabble of who's the best fit for the Tsundere Wonder title. [[LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana Shana]]: for being the [[TropeMaker original]], [[LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero Louise]]: for being the [[TropeCodifier codifier]], [[LightNovel/{{Toradora}} Taiga]]: for being the [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]], and [[Manga/HayateTheCombatButler Nagi]]: for simply being an exception among the others. Ditto if [[LightNovel/HidanNoAria Aria]] is included in the mix, which is still debatable to this day of whether or not she's really considered a Tsundere Wonder despite having all of the matching aspects of one.
** The Yandere side is no different either. There are also internal spats between Yandere fans of who's the better Yandere, with the biggest and most prominent example being [[Manga/FutureDiary Yuno Gasai]] vs [[LightNovel/DateALive Kurumi Tokisaki]]. And recently, thanks to the influence of a certain game being developed by one developer, [[VideoGame/YandereSimulator Ayano Aishi, aka Yandere-chan]] has joined the fray, turning it into a MeleeATrois.
* Fans of YaoiGenre versus fans of YuriGenre. The two often don't intersect and tend to dislike the other. The two have very different cliches attributed to them that attract different fans.
* ''Manga/DeathNote'' and ''Anime/CodeGeass'' both came out around the same time, feature {{bishonen}} MagnificentBastard protagonists, and have a lot of HoYay. They have a rivalry due to the similarities, though most comparisons are superficial as they're vastly different in genre and story.
* Fans of ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' vs. fans of ''LightNovel/BlackBullet''. Where to even begin? This rivalry has spurred mainly because both of these series share similar settings where humanity lives in barricaded cities to protect themselves from creatures that threaten to wipe them out (the [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Titans]] and the [[TheVirus Gastrea]] respectively). Because of this, many fans of the former call out and heavily bash Black Bullet for being a blatant "rip-off" of Attack on Titan and that the series has a lot of {{Lolicon}} subtext just to pander to the {{Moe}} fanbase (hence why they call Black Bullet "Attack on Titan with Lolis"). Fans of the latter however either can't stand ''Attack on Titan'' because ItsPopularNowItSucks (with some of them dropping from [=AoT=] in the same way ''LightNovel/LogHorizon'' fans dropped ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline''), or that they think ''Black Bullet'' has a better story because it's DarkerAndEdgier and has more symbolic meaning to its plot regarding the [[FantasticRacism Cursed Children]].
