* Like his comic counterpart, Film/IronMan had his fair share of evil rivals. The first was Obidiah Stane who, in the MarvelCinematicUniverse was an in-company rival to Stark Enterprises as opposed to the head of his own company. He eventually turned evil and tried to kill Stark. In the second film, Justin Hammer was a business rival who ended up releasing an international criminal who had previously killed many people and tried to kill Stark, in order to defeat Stark Enterprises.

* In the'' Franchise/SpiderMan'' comics, [[ComicBook/{{Venom}} Eddie Brock]] was a reporter that developed a grudge against Spiderman when the latter apprehended Sin-Eater. Brock had been interviewing a compulsive confessor and lost his job in disgrace. In addition to his job loss and inability to find a new one in journalism barring tabloids, he was also diagnosed with terminal cancer, so when he encountered the symbiote (which had tracked Brock by his negative emotions and the cancer upon which it feeds) in the church where Spiderman had abandoned it, he was more than willing to use the symbiote to get the revenge he craved... armed with the knowledge of Spiderman's secret identity and calling himself Venom in reference to the types of articles he was paid to write. He ultimately reformed and gave up the symbiote knowing that without it he would eventually die of the cancer ravaging his body. Except... [[spoiler:the trace of the symbiote in his blood fused with white blood cells and created the menacing Anti-Venom, who, while not as evil, and fights villains like the current]] Venom [[spoiler: Mac Garnagan (AKA: The Scorpion), still holds a grudge with ole Spidey.]] Oh well.

Sister trope of TheRival. May or may not be TheResenter.

Compare ArchEnemy. See also EvilFormerFriend.

* In the Buu Saga of Anime/DragonBallZ, Vegeta had enough of being AlwaysSecondBest to Goku, so he willingly let Babidi brainwash him so he can get the power he needed to fight Goku once and for all. Goku only had one day on earth due to being dead and Vegeta would never have another chance at besting him and threatened to kill anyone until Goku gave in. This unfortunately set off a chain of events that led to Buu's resurrection due to the intensity of their duel.

* Wrestling/LowKi and Xavier had feuded and made up for years beforehand, but Xavier had officially crossed over to evil when he joined The Prophecy to abolish the honor code and remake Wrestling/{{R|ing Of Honor}}OH [[IntheirOwnImage in the image]] of Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels. Also part of the Prophecy was Wrestling/SamoaJoe, a {{token good teammate}} OnlyInItForTheMoney who refused to violate the honor code, which made Low Ki the rival turned evil when he went on a hiatus from the company and returned as a member of the Rottweilers, spitting on Joe's the ROH Championship after he defeated Xavier.[[/folder]]

** Draco Malfoy, after having been TheRival for five books, joins Voldemort's side and becomes significantly more dangerous in the sixth book.

to:

** PlayedWith: Harry's own rival, [[BigBadWannabe Draco Malfoy, after having been TheRival for five Malfoy]], was pretty [[EvilIsPetty petty]] in the early books, but when [[BigBad Voldemort]] returns to power, he joins him. He winds up causing a lot of damage in the sixth book, but he also can't bring himself to actually [[spoiler:murder Dumbledore]], and he's clearly terrified of all of the actual psychopaths whom he's forced to work with. He never technically switches back to the good side until Voldemort's side defeat, but he's so scared and becomes significantly more dangerous in the sixth book.pathetic that even Harry has to sympathize with him.

* The early seasons of ''{{Smallville}}'' dealt with Clark and Lex's relationship this way.
* ''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]'''s [[{{Badass}} Jack Bauer]] seems to have an endless string of these, particularly Christopher Henderson.
* ''TheVampireDiaries''' Damon got his {{Start of Darkness}} this way. The antagonistic relationship between him and Stefan began with their rivalry for the affections of Katherine.

* SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom and [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards]] are probably one of the most straightforward examples of this trope. The catalyst for Doom turning evil was an incident where Reed pointed out a flaw in one of Doom's projects when they were both classmates in grad school rivaling for the spot of top student, and Doom, thinking [[YoureJustJealous Reed was just jealous]], ignored him, only for the project to blow up in his face, disfiguring him and getting him expelled. Doom was so infuriated by the idea that that ''infernal'' Richards had bested him that he [[SelectiveObliviousness rejected that version of reality]], [[NeverMyFault blamed Reed for the accident]], and [[{{Revenge}} dedicated himself to destroying Reed's life in "revenge".]][[note]] Apparently, accidentally brusing the ego of the great Victor von Doom makes you deserving of [[DisproportionateRetribution constant stalking, murder attempts, targeting of your wife and friends, forced duels, repeated physical and psychological torture, mind rape, attempted genocide of your country, kidnapping your kids, screwing with your head and ill-handled guilt complex until you almost lose your mind/fly into a homicidal rage, and turning your life into one long, exhausting, never-ending hell.]][[/note]]\\
