* For all the talk of who ''really'' is the Greatest Quarterback of all time (with both in contention, to say the least) and the hyped up rivalry talk, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady speak highly respectful of each other and seem to genuinely enjoy playing against one another. Maybe helped by the fact that the two are actually never on the field at the same time.

Added DiffLines:

* At their best, this is what a rivalry represents in ''Videogame/DragonAgeII''. While Hawke and the other character may have differing viewpoints, they respect the fact and still value each other as friends, or even more. The other part of it is that Hawke think the other person can do better. So rather than the friend-path "I'm with you all the way," it's more "Come on, you can do better than that!"

* Historical records indicate that Creator/WilliamShakespeare and Ben Jonson weren't above snarking at each other's work, but each still respected the other.

* Historical records indicate that Creator/WilliamShakespeare and Ben Jonson weren't above snarking at each other's work, but each still respected the other. Johnson called Shakespeare a half-educated country simpleton and Shakespeare in turn called Johnson's work formulaic. Apparently both found the comments of the other accurate and ActuallyPrettyFunny.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/SuperNoobs'': Memnock and Zenblock, who are two alien warriors sent to Earth to train a bunch of kids to fight a threat called the virus are at huge competition with each other. This trope replaces their bickering LikeAnOldMarriedCouple in the second half of the first season and it is even Lampshaded in "The Super Noob Super Cup" when Tyler tells them both that they get very competitive with each other sometimes. Examples of them engaging in this kind of rivalry include them competing in things like dance offs, snowball fights, basketball, and alien versions of table tennis and pin the tail on the donkey. They still remain great friends.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRidonculousRace'': Gerry and Pete are basically described as this tripe through their racing team name of the "Tennis Rivals". They have been competitive against each other for decades and don't hesitate to make insulting jokes towards each other but they still remain good friends

* ''[[Anime/VariableGeo Variable Geo]]'': Yuka and her best friend, Satomi, have known each other [[ChildhoodFriends since childhood]] and have been competing against each other for just as long. The series even concludes with the opening exchange between them, during the final match.

* There are a number of examples in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''.
** Naruto and Sasuke (pre-time skip) as members of Team 7. Not the ''friendliest'' example, but they have their moments.
** Sakura and Ino become this upon Sakura's discovery that Ino also has a crush on Sasuke. At first they'd actually drifted away from the "friendly" part, but regain it after their match in the Chunin Exams.
** Guy and Kakashi, as proclaimed (multiple times) by Guy. Kakashi, true to character, is rather apathetic about the whole thing.
** Though only vaguely alluded to, the reader gets a sense that Jiraiya and Orochimaru had a relationship much like the one shared by Naruto and Sasuke.
