* Happens in ''Film/TheAvengers'', and many have argued that this is part of the movie's appeal: successfully translating the complex dynamics of the heroes' relationships in the comic books to the big screen. It is a very large plot point actually.

* Sherlock Holmes in ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' and most of Scotland Yard. [[InsufferableGenius Sherlock]] and pretty much everyone, in fact.

Added DiffLines:

** Slightly lessened, but still somewhat prevalent in ''Videogame/DragonAgeInquisition'', usually from the part of Vivienne (a Pro-Circle Mage with classist views) and Solas (a spiritually-inclined Elven apostate contemptuous of all mortal races). The two tend to bitterly snipe at one another due to being complete opposites at one another.

Added DiffLines:

** If you have his DLC, Anders will also butt heads with Sebastian, a devoutly religious man. Since the Templars who are oppressing mages are bankrolled by the same Chantry that Sebastian supports, while Anders is an open heretic who (if you gave it to him) wears a medallion from the schismatic Tevinter Chantry under his clothes, there's just a bit of hostility there. [[spoiler:When Anders goes off the deep end and commits a terrorist act in the name of mage freedom, if Hawke doesn't execute Anders immediately, Sebastian will storm off, eventually leading an army against Kirkwall in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition''.]]
** Aveline (strongly Lawful-aligned city guard) and Isabela (strongly Chaotic-aligned pirate) will butt heads in the early- to mid-game, although they settle down to VitriolicBestBuds later on.

* '''[[NeverLiveItDown Never Living It Down]]''': One of the heroes did something in the past or failed in some way that has tainted them in the eyes of others, but while most heroes give him the benefit of the doubt or believe the hero has proven his worth, the rival just won't let it go.

** Evolved in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX''. Johnny can still be [[TheGadfly a complete ass]] at times, but he does back up his cocky attitude with legitimate badassitude, being instrumental in defeating Shinnok, making an effective diplomat with the other factions of the MK-verse, and is recognized several times as being Earthrealm's champion. [[GoodParents And he's a good dad too.]]

* Kazuma and Ryuho of ''{{Scryed}}'' may have common goals at times, but once they're taken care of, it's back to fighting each other. Their ideologies and personalities, and their stubborn pride, make for unresolvable differences. [[spoiler:The very last episode is a knock-down, drag-out fight between the two of them, with no hint of friendship apparent between the two.]]
* In the ''Manga/{{Mai-Hime}}'' manga, Nao doesn't get along well with any of the other Himes, especially not Natsuki and Haruka. Unlike in the anime, however, she never turns completely hostile against the others after joining them.

* Franchise/{{Batman}} has a tendency to rub many other heroes the wrong way, with some of them actually going hostile on him. Franchise/{{Superman}} is not one of them (which can surprise people, considering how opposite they are portrayed usually), but [[GreenLantern Hal Jordan and especially Guy Gardner are]]. Harvey Bullock is sometimes portrayed this way towards him too, but he eventually gets better.

Harvey Bullock is sometimes portrayed this way towards him too, but he eventually gets better.



* And speaking of [[GreenLantern Guy Gardner]], he REALLY has an ability to rub people wrong. Countless people have manifested the desire to beat the shit out of him. Batman actually did...WITH ONE PUNCH!!!
* [[IncredibleHulk The Hulk]] REALLY has this in spades. He has loads of characters he'll never get along with. Amongst them, [[TheMightyThor Thor]] is the one with whom he has the biggest rivalry. [[ComicBook/XMen The Juggernaut]], ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} and [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Ben Grimm]] are also common rivals.
** As far as the Hulk goes, he and Thor will occasionally get along perfectly well until one sets the other off, and a fight breaks out. Hulk and Ben also have mutual respect for each other. That being said, the Hulk does have a few heroes he absolutely hates, especially after the PlanetHulk / WorldWarHulk incidents. Reed Richards, Tony Stark, and Professor X being among them. Wolverine and Juggernaut, on the other hand, are purely antagonistic with the Hulk.

* ThePunisher is a surprisingly dark anti-hero. He kills frequently in ways which are BloodyHilarious, simply brutal, or just {{Gorn}}. Additionally, he readily goes all-out with firearms. As the name implies, mercy is ''not'' one of his virtues at all. This doesn't help his popularity with more idealistic heroes. Since he was first introduced as an adversary of ComicBook/SpiderMan, it's not surprising that Webhead isn't a fan.

* MsMarvel carried a grudge against [[ComicBook/XMen Rogue]] for quite a while for {{Mind Rap|e}}ing her to steal her powers back when Rogue was still a villain working for Mystique. They eventually reconciled (but whether any given writer [[DependingOnTheWriter remembers]] that is up for grabs).

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': Jack and Miranda in ''2''; Jack endured hellish torture in a rogue Cerberus facility, Miranda is the biggest fan Cerberus has ever had, to the point where after you finish both their loyalty missions, they will attempt to kill each other and you have to separate them, costing you one's loyalty unless you have a high Paragon or Renegade score. A similar situation arises with Tali and Legion, since Tali really dislikes the geth and Legion ''is'' a geth. Finally, Javik gets into near-constant arguments with both EDI and a Paragon Shepard, EDI because he hates synthetic life and Shepard because the Protheans' default means of solving problems involved an airlock, while Paragon Shep tends to be more of a diplomat who tries to bring about a peaceful resolution. Thankfully, by the late-stage Citadel DLC, most of these settle down into at worst VitriolicBestBuds, and Legion and Tali's alliance ends up being the last, best hope for a geth/quarian peace.
