Added DiffLines:

* In ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'', most of Jason Fox's screentime is spent harassing his sister Paige with pranks, squirt guns, his pet iguana, or numerous creative projects like comics or cartoons dedicated to insulting her[[note]]The prime example being his long-running comic "Slug Man", whose arch-nemesis is Paige-O-Tron, an evil robot with lethal body odor and exploding pimple bullets[[/note]]; this relates more to Jason's extreme GirlsHaveCooties attitude than out of any actual jealousy. Paige usually responds with violence, but she does occasionally prank him back; on top of this, both of them have a more subdued rivalry with their older brother Peter.

* [=GLaDOS=] in ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' does this deliberately to the co-op robots Atlas and P-body. Though it's hard to ascribe a term like 'siblings' to a [[CyberCyclops pair of one-eyed]], [[AmbiguousGender genderless]] [[CuteMachines androids]], they are evenly-matched partners, built at the same time, who GLaDOS will occasionally try to pit against each other. (ForScience, and also [[ComedicSociopathy her own amusement.]])

* [[DeadpanSnarker Edmund]] and [[PluckyGirl Lucy]] from the ''ChroniclesOfNarnia'' have this tendency in the first book, due to the fact that [[BigBrotherBully Edmund enjoys tormenting her]]. Peter calls him out at least twice.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/DragonBallZCoolersRevenge'': Frieza is hinted to have this with his StrongerSibling, Cooler. Cooler freely admits to finding Frieza nothing but a SpoiledBrat and a pest, and states outright that had Goku not killed Frieza, he gladly would have done the job for him; in fact, the ''only'' reason Cooler even bothers to go after Goku and [[AvengingTheVillain avenge him]] is because he believes that Frieza has sullied their FamilyHonor by letting Goku defeat him.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', House Frey take this to extremes. Lord Frey is on his eighth wife and has children by all of the previous seven, as well as several illegitimate children and plenty of grand- and great-grandchildren. There is so little love lost between them all that news of a family death elicits more calculation of the effect on the line of succession than grief.
** Also the Baratheon brothers, who are not very close to each other. When Robert dies, Stannis and Renly take it to the max - fighting for the Iron Throne with each other and with their supposed nephews.

grief. It is especially bad between Edwyn and "Black" Walder Frey, two great-grandsons of Walder Frey who hate each other and each aspire to be Lord of the Crossing.
** Also the Baratheon brothers, who are not very close to each other. When Robert dies, Stannis and Renly take it to the max - fighting for the Iron Throne with each other and with their supposed nephews. However Stannis is more justified, as Robert's eldest brother his claim to the throne is better then Renly, who is a vain greedy jerk who decides to usurp the Iron Throne basically on AppealToForce and intends to kill Stannis, [[spoiler:but is killed by a shadow assassin conjured by Stannis' sorceress before he can do so. It is left unclear if Stannis is aware of his role in his brother's death.]] However Stannis does reveal to [[TheLancer his loyal Knight]] Davos Seaworth that he did love his brothers and wished for their appreciation, he is saddened at their death.
** The Dance of the Dragons, a civil war between two branches of the Targaryen dynasty, came about due to the enmity between Princess Rhaenyra, King Viserys I's only surviving child by his first wife Aemma Arryn, and Viserys' children by his second wife Alicent Hightower. Rhaenyra's three eldest sons had a massive enmity with Alicent's three sons, Prince Lucerys Velaryon being slashing out Prince Aemond Targaryen's eye in a fight. When Viserys died Rhaenyra and her eldest half-brother Aegon II fought over the throne, in the process wiping out nearly all the Targaryens and dragons.
** There was also this between the children of Aegon IV "The Unworthy", who sired numerous bastards but only one legitimate son Daeron. Their father was partially responsible for this, Aegon hating Daeron and trying to make one of his bastards heir, even legitimizing them all on his deathbed. This led to his eldest illegitimate son Daemon Blackfyre eventually rebelling against Daeron. There was also the enmity between Aegor Rivers "Bittersteel" and Brynden Rivers "Bloodraven", who were sired on mothers from one of the biggest cases of FeudingFamilies in Westeros, and supported different sides in the Blackfyre rebellions, Aegor spending much of his life trying to put a Blackfyre in the Iron Throne, and Brynden taking extreme measures to prevent this.
