* WWE vs. would be WCW successor Wrestling/{{TNA}} vs. would be ECW successor Wrestling/RingOfHonor, though despite the addition of wrestlers made famous by either WWE or WCW, TNA's ratings remain stagnant. While ROH has more direct rivalries with other promotions(see below) and is will more readily attack TNA before WWE([[EtTuBrute because they used to work together]]), there have been a subset of WWE fans hostile to ROH from the very beginning, to the point even comments meant to be complimentary("I'd like to see ___ in WWE") or constructive ("ROH should have signed *future endeavored WWE wrestler here*") sometimes inspire backlash from ROH fans.
* Ring Of Honor also had one with Wrestling/ProWrestlingGuerilla, which was kicked off by accident when a WorkedShoot worked [[GoneHorriblyRight too well]], Wrestling/DragonGate (specifically DGUSA, when ROH head booker Gabe Sapolsky moved there after being fired) and Wrestling/{{CZW}}, the later of which {{exploited|trope}} to produce what is considered to be the [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny greatest feud]] in ROH history.

* ''VisualNovels/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.

* In some cases, the ''Film/CarryOn'' 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.

** Thanks to OrsonScottCard's fairly harsh criticism of Rowling for her lawsuit against the Harry Potter Lexicon, a few fans of ''EndersGame'' have turned against it too.

** GOTO and GOSUB-RETURN vs Object Oriented Programming. While this rivalry is rare nowadays as the latter is now universally accepted and the former is only still relevant in Assembly Language, through the 60s and 70s this was a war fought between two very vocal programmer groups[[note]]The group backing GOTO are those who believed programming languages should be left to real men and that people who cannot grasp the concept of [=GOTOs=], tight optimization and self-modifying code are not worthy of being called a programmer, while the latter group believes that code should be clearly written and easily debugged at the expense of processing complexity, arguing that computing power doubles every 18 months anyway. The arguments put forth by the former can be found in an essay called ''Real Programmers Don't Use Pascal'' which is widely available online. The arguments put forth by the latter can be found in the article ''Goto statement considered harmful''.[[/note]]

* Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution vs. Subaru Impreza WRX STI, obviously. They're high performance rally cars built for [[UsefulNotes/WorldRallyChampionship WRC]], and having huge fanbases for each side. They're also the ones captured by the tuner markets, and were brought over by their respective makers to the global attention. However, the rivalry ended in 2014 when [[CreatorKiller/AutomoBiles Mitsubishi Motors announced the discontinuation of Lancer Evolution line]] [[AcclaimedFlop due to it being a commercial failure]], leaving Subaru alone to develop their own WRX STI line.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' vs ''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]].

* In Germany, ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' (being the most popular RPG worldwide) vs. TheDarkEye (being Germany's most popular RPG). Though there is some overlap to be expected (plenty of D&D players started with TDE), the fundamental gamestyle and setting differences lead to a lot of discussions which system is actually better. Whether it's the one of the other is mostly down to one's preferences.
