* In ''TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', we see a flashback to the climactic final confrontation between SherlockHolmes and James Moriarty. They make it clear to one another that this isn't a manner of personal spite and immediately begin fighting to the death. Of course, once Moriarty ''loses'', he immediately complains and calls Holmes a "drug-addicted sodomite".

* It is not unknown for professional soldiers to feel this toward their [[WorthyOpponent counterpart]] on the other side. Not necessarily just because they viewed them as worthy opponents but because they realize that in another life they could have been friends. War is just a game of politics, the meaning of who is an enemy changes from one day to the next. Under those circumstances they realize it is petty to hold resentment towards an enemy now that the war is over. However, this depends on the strength of the propaganda in the war effort. During the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, many ''civilians'' felt that it totally ''was'' personal as a result of the RedScare.
