** The way Frank Miller, and then John Byrne, conceived the Batman/Superman relationship played this trope straight, with Frank Miller noting that their ideologies are completely different and concluding that 'These two people do NOT like each other'.

** With Hal Jordan, ''why'' they don't get along varies. Initially, it was because Bruce didn't trust Hal after his whole Parallax ordeal, but that was in modern times. Flashbacks show that they ''never'' really got along, with no clear reason aside from Hal hating Bruce being a jerkass and Bruce hating that Hal was loud and bright all the time. The New 52 changed this so that ''Hal'' was the jerkass from day one, while ''Bruce'' of all people was the chilled one.
** The way Frank Miller, and then John Byrne, conceived the Batman/Superman relationship played this trope straight, with Frank Miller noting that their ideologies are completely different and concluding that 'These two people do NOT like each other'. Of course, Miller's storyw as set in an alternate universe, and Byrne's only showed they're first meeting. Subsequent writers showed that Batman very quickly developed a friendship with Superman.
-->'''Superman''': He barely tolerated me.
-->'''Wonder Woman''': He '''loved''' you.



* ComicBook/{{Hawkman}} and ComicBook/GreenArrow. Hawkman has a pretty conservative view of the world and has a kind of fascistic bent, due to either his culture (Carter Hall is a reincarnated Egyptian prince and Katar Hol is from an oppressive race full of ProudWarriorRaceGuy|s), while Green Arrow is ''very'' liberal. Later on, Ollie also brings up that Carter's creepy obsession with the new Hawkgirl, Kendra Saunders, border on statutory, and that he's a 30-something man (biologically) while she's about 20. He also notes that Ollie knows nothing about Kendra, instead expecting her to basically be Shiera, the previous Hawkgirl. Given Ollie's protectiveness of women, it was going to come up. The two have ''never'' gotten along, and Power Girl even invokes FeudingFamilies when discussing the Hawks and Arrows.

** 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.

Barret apologises to him by the time they storm the Shinra building, saying he misjudged Cloud; Cloud doesn't return the affection until Barret's sidequest, when he grudgingly admits that "if you die on me, I'm gonna have nightmares". In the ''Compilation'', they're best friends, and found-family.
** Noel Kreiss to Snow Villers. in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2''. They get over their differences pretty quickly, though.

This is troublesome because these two are part of a trio who hold the to seal away [[GodOfEvil Orochi]]. They manage to come together for [[TeethClenchedTeamwork the sake of humanity]] in some games. Said games usually end in a clash between the two with an UnresolvedConflict.

* Wrestling/JohnCena and Wrestling/TheRock are both supposed to be "heroes" (i.e., babyfaces-- Cena gets booed more than almost any other face ever, though), and they can't stand each other at all. Same applied to Wrestling/ShawnMichaels and Wrestling/TheUndertaker towards the end of the former's career, although that was more due to Michaels' ({{kayfabe}}) obsession with defeating Undertaker at WrestleMania.

* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' and Knuckles the Echidna started off as this in the [[Comicbook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog archie comics]]. Every time the two cross paths, they would act hostile towards one another and this ends up in the two fighting each other, usually due to ego. As time goes by, their antagonism towards each other would develop into a FriendlyRivalry.
