* ''Series/TheaTeam'': Although it's never expressly stated, it's pretty obvious that B.A. is the only one who's allowed to be mean to Murdock and Face. He frequently verbally abuses them and threatens them with physical violence (Murdock is his main target, but Face gets quite a bit of this too, at times). And then you'll get a scene where the team is facing the [[VillainOfTheWeek slimeballs of the week;]] Murdock and Face, the physically weaker half of the team, frequently find themselves fighting a {{mook}} who's too big for them to handle. Cue B.A., who proceeds to knock the sucka's lights out. Five minutes later he's back to insulting Murdock and Face and threatening to beat them up himself. Happens every few episodes.

** Generally the girls are like this with each other. They bicker and fight, as sisters do, but [[BerserkButton lord help you]] if you try hurting one of the Puffs and are not family. [[BigBrotherInstinct They will finish you.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'', we have the Pataki sisters. Helga may not always like her sister Olga and take some pleasure in her sufferings at times, but when push comes to shove Helga will protect her big sister.

Pataki sisters. Helga may not always like her sister Olga and take some pleasure in her sufferings at times, but when push comes to shove Helga will protect her big sister.sister.
** Helga will tease and torment Arnold all day ([[LovingBully to cover up the fact that she's madly in love with him]]), but when someone else tries the same, she will come to his aid. In "Parents Day", her father called Arnold "Orphan Boy" within earshot. Helga apologized to Arnold (albeit, in a half-assed manner) and helped him defeat Bob in the Parents' Tournament. And in "Summer Love", she discovered that Arnold's crush Summer was using him to win a sand castle competition in order to appear on a TV show, she showed Arnold her true intentions.

* In ''Manga/FruitsBasket'', Rin gets physical with Tohru and ever since their first meeting e.g. grabbing her by the collar, roughly rubbing her head, etc. The moment Kagura [[BerserkButton punches Tohru]] (and accidentally knocks her out) in frustration [[spoiler:that she won't confess her feelings to Kyo so that Kagura wouldn't have to think about him anymore]], Rin gets the [[UnstoppableRage angriest]] anyone has seen her in the story. Contains some FridgeBrilliance in that Rin acts that way because of how different her and Kagura are. Both have bad tempers, but Kagura [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength does not know her own strength]] and frequently hurts others by accident when riled up. Rin knows that ''she'' isn't a serious danger to Tohru, but she can't trust Kagura to have the same discipline.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/AnoKoNiKissToShirayuriWo'' provides a non-bullying example; Yukina chastises Towako in private for [[spoiler:sabotaging the Gardening Club]], but refuses to let the student council say anything critical about her. Since Yukina and Towako are in the same hierarchy, this trope is given connotations of 'providing a united front'.

* [[Literature/SuperheroesAnonymous Hostage Girl]] is furious when another Supervillain injures Razor X in a fight; "Raze is ''my'' enemy, nobody gets to hurt her but me!" She does realize the sheer dysfunctional idiocy of this thought.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' a variation happens between [[TheCape Flynn]] and [[TheCowl Yuri]]. Flynn is noted to be the most humble of characters (even more so in the UpdatedRerelease which gives him more spotlight) and yet his reaction to Yuri doing the ''exact same thing'' as him is of ''sheer rage'' that he would put himself down. Yuri also sometimes slides into this when interacting with others due to his minor {{Tsundere}} nature - as Estelle notes often, Yuri isn't good at being honest with his feelings so tends to tease and give backhanded compliments to his TrueCompanions. But if anyone goes after his friends, he's the first one to their defence.

A subtrope of AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther, and/or FriendshipMoment, in which a character who frequently bullies or teases another is the first to stand up for them if they get the same treatment from anyone else.

* Vegeta plays with this occasionally during in DragonballZ with regards to Goku. He occasionally becomes very, very slightly concerned for Goku's safety when Goku goes off to fight someone else, even offering occasional bits of help and support - mostly because he believes if anyone's going to beat Goku in a fight, it should be him. This is most notable just before [[spoiler:Vegeta's death]] in the Freeza saga, and the early stages of the Main Buu saga.
