* If Soji is picked as the protagonist in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsV'', his dynamic with Nine comes off as this. He even states this during the prologue of the scenario where he gets the MidSeasonUpgrade.

** And Frasier and Niles, of course, do this constantly, what with the nitpicking, unwarranted commentary, and the barrage of swiftly and pitch-perfectly thrown insults so easy and practiced that it's almost a reflex. Whenever they don't sound like [[Franchise/HarryPotter Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger]], they sound like [[ILoveLucy Fred and Ethel Mertz,]] to the point of DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything.

* ''Literature/TheTrialsOfApollo'': Nico di Angelo and Will Solace have been together for six months, and argue like they've been married for five decades. It's both hilarious and adorable.



* ''Series/DoctorWho''
** In the episode "Forest of the Dead", one of several arguments between the Doctor and River Song is interrupted by a character remarking that they're "squabbling like an old married couple". [[spoiler:Naturally, ''they are'', in fact, married]].
** The like-an-old-married-couple-factor is taken to the next level in "The Big Bang". [[spoiler:When the Doctor saves River from a constant time-loop, he teleports into the TARDIS and saves her life that way]]. The following dialogue occurs:
--->'''The [[Creator/MattSmith Eleventh Doctor]]:''' Honey, I'm home!\\
'''River:''' And what sort of time do you call this?
** "The Pandorica Opens":
--->'''The Eleventh Doctor:''' You graffitied the oldest cliff face in the universe!\\
'''River:''' ''You'' wouldn't answer your ''phone''!
** The first time Amy Pond met River, she eventually asked if River and the Doctor were married.

** The [[Creator/DavidTennant Tenth Doctor]] and Donna Noble. There had to be a reason why everyone kept mistaking them for married. It's ironic since Donna is the only long-term female companion in New Who who ''isn't'' hot for the Doctor.
** The Sixth Doctor and Peri seemed to do this a lot. Every episode with them has them exchanging insults and arguing about the stupidest things.

* [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'', because Edgeworth and Phoenix have finally hit that stage. Bobby Fullbright even points out that they're "close enough to argue". In their brief appearance in court together, they don't so much argue over facts as quibble about interrupting each other:
