* In ''BigHero6'', Professor Callaghan and Krei are explicitly set up as foils at the expo, with Krei wanting to profit off of Hiro's invention while Callaghan wants Hiro to use his talents for something more. Hiro and [[spoiler: Yokai/Callaghan]]. Both are genius inventors who lost a loved one and most of their actions in the film were driven by their grief and need for revenge. However whereas Hiro learned to see the error in his actions and accept his loss, [[spoiler: Callaghan]] was too mad by their grief to change and refused to let go of their bitterness. Also, Hiro was surrounded by friends and family who supported and helped him get through his depression while [[spoiler: Callaghan]] kept their pain private and didn't tell anyone.

* [[FarmBoy Luke Skywalker]] and [[LovableRogue Han Solo]] in ''Franchise/StarWars''. The former is a young naive hero who trusts the Force, while the other is the older, cynical, streetwise anti-hero who prefers to trust his gut and some cold hard steel. * Kylo Ren to Rey in ''Films/TheForceAwakens''. Aside from being the [[TheHeavy Villain]] to her {{Hero}}, they contrast each other in many ways. Rey was abandoned by her family, and waited over a decade with the promise that they would return. Ren came from a {{Heroic Lineage}}, but his seduction to the Dark Side culminated with him betraying his family and slaughtering his fellow apprentices. Throughout the film, Rey comes to view Han Solo as a father figure, while Ren, Han's [[spoiler:biological son]], makes a desperate attempt to sever all ties to him by [[spoiler:killing him]]. Furthermore, it is heavily implied that Rey will take the role of student to Luke Skywalker, Ren's former master and [[spoiler:uncle]].

Darth Vader) is also one to Luke. Both grew up on the same desolate desert planet before being taken away to train as Jedi Knights under Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, while Anakin came to desire power and succumbed to the Dark Side in an attempt to save his loved-ones, Luke had little interest in power beyond what he needed to protect his friends and family. Ultimately, Anakin's lingering love for his [[spoiler:son]] wins out when he [[spoiler:kills Emperor Palpatine]]. ** Kylo Ren to Rey in ''Films/TheForceAwakens''.

* ''Webcomic/{{Plume}}'': ** Corrick and Vesper are the most straightforward. One's a ReallySevenHundredYearsOld {{Badass}} with supernatural powers, a realistic, if not cynical outlook of life and disdain for his job. The other is an ActionSurvivor young girl who's slowly growing into a BloodKnight. ** Corrick and [[spoiler:Azeel]]: while both are Aurans changed by magic, the former dislikes his gift and aims to protect, while the latter enjoys himself while sowing destruction.

** The [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orks]] and the [[OurElvesAreBetter Eldar]] are also this to each other, as the [[ProudScholarRaceGuy wise and cultured]] but [[CantArgueWithElves hugely xenophobic and elitist]] Eldar with their sleek and shiny {{Magitek}} weapons and vehicles contrast sharply with the [[AxCrazy thuggish and universally-violent-to-just-about-everyone]] Orks with their [[ScavengerPunk low-tech firearms and wagons cobbled together from scrap]].
