In many anime, when a female protagonist moves to a new school, some girl, usually [[AlphaBitch stuck-up]], proclaims that the heroine is worthy of being her [[TheRival rival]]. The stuck-up girl will constantly engage the heroine, who [[UnknownRival usually doesn't pay attention to these efforts, or even the challenger]].
----
!!Examples:

[[AC:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* Happens to Miu in KenichiTheMightiestDisciple when she joins the rhythmic gymnastics club and turns up to be better than the [[TheAce club president]]. A year later, ''both'' of them take up this attitude towards the newcomer [[AttentionWhore Rachel]].
* ''PeachGirl'': Momo and Sai for a bit.
* ''Anime/ALittleSnowFairySugar'' had Greta constantly challenging Saga, who was usually distracted by the fairies' antics.
* In ''[[Anime/ReadOrDie ROD the TV]]'', Anita was also challenged by one of her classmates.
* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' shows Kagura doing this to Sakaki upon the former's transfer into Yukari's class.
** In a manner more in tune with the show's [[AbsurdityAscendant absurd nature]], Tomo challenges everyone in whatever their best field is.
* Natsume in ''HidamariSketch'' is Sae's self-proclaimed rival, but she's really doing it because she has a {{Tsundere}} crush on Sae.
* [[{{Troperiffic}} Naturally]] occurs in ''KujibikiUnbalance'' with the one-sided rivalry between Tokino and Renko- Renko holds a grudge against Tokino from elementary school, but Tokino is so [[TheDitz ditzy]] she doesn't even realize Renko is antagonizing her.
* Occurs in the backstory of ''MahouSenseiNegima''. When Asuna arrived as a NewTransferStudent at Mahora, Ayaka declared that they were rivals. As Asuna was an EmotionlessGirl at arrival, [[UnknownRival it took her several years to notice.]] This, of course, means that, given her lack of authority figures, ''Asuna was basically raised by TheRival'', to the extent that what emotions she ''did'' develop were developed in response to an annoying {{Ojou}} bothering her all the time. Explains a lot, really.
** Kaede and Mana also seem to have this type of relationship; pretty much every time we see them interact they're either fighting or trying to one-up each other.
*** Although this has less to do with them being schoolgirls and more to do with the fact that they're both fantastically accomplished warriors.
**** With wildly contrasting styles, no less--one is a {{Ninja}}, the other a [[TheGunslinger Gunslinger]].
* Eiko Magami and Biko Daitokuji from ''Anime/ProjectAKo''.
* Chitose in ''Manga/{{Hitohira}}'' flips back and forth between being this to Mugi and being supportive.
* In the [[ComicBookAdaptation supplementary manga]] of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha A's'', no sooner did Fate become a NewTransferStudent did she gain a schoolgirl rival in [[ThoseTwoGuys Alisa]] after the [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter latter overachiever of a student learned]] that the former [[TeenGenius was way too advanced for the curriculum]].
* ''Manga/SetoNoHanayome'' has Lunar transferring ''into'' the school for the sole purpose of being Sun's rival. It actually starts a ''war'' among the students.
* Erina Ogura in ''Manga/KirarinRevolution'' is Kirari's "rival" because she's jealous of Kirari's increasing popularity - even though Kirari thinks them to be good friends.
* In ''Manga/BGataHKei'' Kyouka instigates one with Yamada after Yamada beat her in a beauty pageant.
* Ayame acts this way to Aki in ''SilverSpoon'' in equitation, even if she's actually leagues below her.

[[AC:{{Manhwa}}]]
* Ah-ra is this towards Ma-ri in ''Webcomic/OrangeMarmalade'', mostly due to Ma-ri having both Ja-min's attention and affections (whom Ah-ra has an extremely serious crush on).

[[AC:VideoGames]]
* Sakura Kasugano and Karin Kanzuki in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha''. The storyline connecting them, and Karin herself, are {{Canon Immigrant}}s from the ''Sakura Ganbaru!'' manga.

[[AC:WesternAnimation]]
* KimPossible and [[AlphaBitch Bonnie Rockwaller]] have this sort of relationship.
* JohnnyTest has Sissy Blakely, a rare example of the schoolgirl being rivals with a boy.
