* [[ComicBook/TheAuthority Apollo and Midnighter]], Apollo being the sweet-natured, long-haired beauty and Midnighter being the gruff, leather-clad AntiHero. They're both extremely badass, though, and come across as equally StraightGay.

* British Kid's comics usually work on the "schoolyard rivals" model. ComicBook/{{Dennis the Menace|UK}} bullies Walter the Softy, Bully Beef is regularly outsmarted by Chips, Smudge refuses to be clean like Percival Prim, Tough Nut picks on Softy Centre etc. Which character the reader is supposed to root for varies from story to story, but it's often the tough kid, further perpetuating the stereotype.

* The ''Literature/HardyBoys'' books use this for Frank and Joe. Frank is the more intellectual, cool-headed brother who likes art, literature, and strategy. Joe is the athletic hot-headed sports-fan who likes to charge in head first. While this only showed up in faint traces in earlier books, in more recent series, after a small bit of Flanderization, it's become much more prominent, with the boys actually arguing about which is the better tactic when in comes to solving a case.

* Link and Prince Sidon from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. Link is a short, slim LongHairedPrettyBoy Hylian boy who looks [[AttractiveGenderBent very pretty]] when DisguisedInDragon.

* Keiichi and Satoshi from ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' are presented in this fashion despite never interacting (except for in an anime OVA [[spoiler:that ended up being AllJustADream]]). They're foils to each other and Keiichi is very similar to Satoshi. Satoshi has a soft color palette of blond hair and almost pink red eyes while Keiichi has a darker one of blue eyes and dark brown hair. Keiichi is somewhat perverted and HotBlooded while Satoshi is more mild mannered. Satoshi is [[CrossDressingVoices voiced by a woman]] despite being older than Keiichi and has a softer voice than him as well.

** Hermes and Zoidberg. Hermes focuses a lot on paying bills and maintaining the company in tip top shape while he often competes in limbo and was an Olympic athlete while Zoidberg is an alien living in poverty who does not hold grudges against other people and is very naïve and emotional and Hermes often bullies Zoidberg around at work.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': Played with with Suzaku and Lelouch, especially in the sound dramas. Lelouch is much more feminine in his tastes and appearence while Suzaku is far more masculine. Yet of the two, Suzaku seems much more kind and sensitive than snarky, aloof Lelouch. Of course, CodeGeass being the [[CrapsackWorld universe]] it is, this gets deconstructed. As children, however, they played this trope straight as Suzaku was rough, boisterous, and a bit cruel whereas Lelouch was sensitive, sheltered, and more gentle.

* The major supporting cops in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' are the [[BadassInCharge leader of the precinct]], Chief Bogo, a no-nonsense, curt, intimidating, bossy, muscular, deep-voiced cape buffalo (a tall species with hard features), and the [[NonActionGuy front desk officer]], Benjamin Clawhauser, a flamboyant, emotional, sweet, accommodating, rotund, high-voiced cheetah (a moderate height species with soft features). Clawhauser is openly a huge fanboy of the local pop star, Gazelle, while Bogo [[spoiler: [[RealMenWearPink also likes her]] but thinks of it as a GuiltyPleasure for a time]]. Their dynamic helps to defy the movie's central stereotypes about predators (like Sensitive Guy Clawhauser) and prey (like Manly Man Bogo).

* Devin and Joshua in ''Webcomic/DearChildren'' are a pretty straightforward example. Devin is loud, aggressive, and doesn't seem to do well with emotions. Josh is timid, nurturing, and soft-spoken.
**Also, Devin and Gabe, to a lesser extent.
