* Klavier Gavin to ApolloJustice and detective Ema Skye, which is particularly strange as despite being a Prosecuting Attorney (an antagonistic role from the protagonist's point of view), he's very much a good guy, which makes him fall squarely into this trope.

** Dipper is openly hostile towards {{Jerkass}} EmoTeen Robbie after he starts dating Dipper's crush, Wendy Corduroy. This comes to a head in "Fight Fighters", where Robbie gets fed up of Dipper's reciprocation to his provocative and bullying behaviour and threatens to beat him up, only to come to the realization that [[WouldntHurtAChild he doesn't hate Dipper enough to physically hurt him]] after Dipper spared him from McSkirmish's rampage.

** It's PlayedForLaughs between the kids - Luke begins to see Lily as this from about Season 3, when she grows into a snarky toddler, though the real reason is probably that with her talking and interacting more she's stealing his limelight as the precocious youngest child in the family. Lily takes it a step further herself by starting to see Joe as this from the very day he's born, which is something she and Luke actually bond over.

** Jake very much sees Doug Judy (a.k.a. [[spoiler:The Pontiac Bandit]]) as this, with their face-offs being a once-per-season event that reliably gets a whole episode devoted to it. He even refers to Doug as his "nemesis" on numerous occasions. However, as Doug himself often points out, they often come across more as VitriolicBestBuds with their shared sense of humour and taste for wacky hijinks, and would very likely be best friends if they weren't on opposite sides of the law. Jake angrily refuses to accept this... but is almost always willing to go along with Doug's crazy ideas under the guise of catching a bigger criminal, which ''always'' results in Doug getting away. Not to mention actually taking ShipperOnDeck Doug's advice about his love life with Amy.

* ''Series/TrailerParkBoys'' has Ricky, Julian, and Bubbles (and, sporadically, most of the other people in the park) on one side of this situation and Mr Lahey and Randy on the other. An unusual example in that not only is the feeling very much openly acknowledged as mutual, but both sides are presented with (more or less) equal amounts of sympathy.
