* Radio/TheKevinAndBeanShow on Los Angeles station KROQ had crosstown rival Rick Dees on KIIS. Kevin and Bean often mocked Dees on their show and accused him of pre-taping his show. They occasionally played pranks on him and tried to catch him at home when his show was on the air, pretending to be a live broadcast. This made headlines when Dees filed a lawsuit accusing them of stalking him.

** Cecil, the {{narrator}}, absolutely ''loathes'' Steve Carlsberg, for reasons that have yet to be made clear. Some fans assume [[FoeYayShipping they're exes]].
*** However, it appears that Cecil has an entirely valid reason to hate Steve [[spoiler: as he's the neglectful (at least according to Cecil) stepfather of Cecil's niece.]] Later episodes give even more depth and nuance to their relationship, suggesting [[spoiler: that Cecil only dislikes Steve because he is too open about the town's many dark secrets, and is afraid that it'll affect said niece.]] It should also be noted, that as far as we can tell, Steve seems to be quite nice, a protective step-father, and his scones are probably decent.
** The nearby town of Desert Bluffs appears to fill this role for Night Vale as a whole.
*** Except that no, not really, Desert Bluffs is ''deeply and genuinely horrifying.'' Maybe a long time ago [[spoiler: before Strex consumed Desert Bluffs the same way they tried to consume Night Vale]] this was true, but like. Night Vale is messed up, yeah, but at least Cecil doesn't consider splattering a radio station with viscera and gore to be ''decorating.''

** Leslie's other nemesis is City Councilman Jeremy Jamm. Leslie even makes a chart of how many times they've gone up against each other and who's won each time.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has many examples :
** Homer abhors Ned Flanders, out of both jealousy for his good lifestyle and popularity as well as his insufferably pious and goody goody demeanour. Ned was almost always jovial and kind in return, though by later episodes starts showing some mutual contempt after everything Homer does to him.
** There is a noted mutual dislike between Homer and Patty and Selma, being ObnoxiousInLaws and all.
** Maggie had a lampshaded case with Gerald, the baby with one eyebrow. There's amusingly little context to it outside the lampshade hanging.
** The relationships among some of the supporting characters touch this, e. g. Principal Skinner vs. Groundskeeper Willie (who frequently makes disparaging remarks about him behind his back) and Mayor Joe Quimby vs. Police Chief Clancy Wiggum (corrupt incompetent politician vs. corrupt incompetent official).
%%*** Reverend Lovejoy also feels the same way about Flanders.
%%** Homer also had Frank Grimes, though that was entirely one-sided.
%%*** Another one-time example for Homer was being George H.W. Bush in "Two Bad Neighbours".
%%** Principal Skinner is more conventionally a sitcom arch nemesis to Bart.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'':
** Homer abhors Ned Flanders, out Trudy Beekman [[TheGhost has never actually been seen]] on the show, but Mallory almost constantly complains about her.
** ISIS as a whole had this sort of relationship with the more competent ODIN, as well as the KGB. They could never quite be ''real'' arch-nemesii, as Mallory was in a romantic relationship with the heads
of both jealousy for organizations. However, things seem to have gotten DarkerAndEdgier between the rival organizations, as [[spoiler:Len Trexler (the head of ODIN), was last seen brainwashed and possibly lobotomized by ISIS agents, Major Jakov (of the KGB) has been murdered, and his good lifestyle murderer (ODIN agent Barry) is now running the KGB and is a completely psychopathic cyborg]].

Mikey is utterly oblivious to Lily's seething hatred and jealousy towards him. This is what happens when you put the {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and the AlphaBitch on the same set.
* Given the way {{supervillain}}y is treated in ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', The Monarch and Doctor Venture fall under this trope. The Monarch's aggression is [[UnknownRival hardly noticed]] by Venture himself, seems almost completely arbitrary (aside from the fact that Venture made fun of The Monarch's poetry in college), and Doctor Girlfriend has [[LampshadeHanging even acknowledged within the show]] that the two [[NotSoDifferent share enough similarities]] to be good friends were it not for the supposed hatred that exists between them. However, the Monarch has genuine, murderous hatred toward Rusty for reasons yet to be revealed.

It was shown on subtle occasions that Zoidberg was something of an annoying leech to him, as well as his incompetent qualities that Hermes barely tolerates the rest of the team for. Add to that his sheer lack of backbone and he's the ideal stress ball for a traditional bullying employer. In one episode, Zoidberg claims Hermes is his best friend, as he is the only one who cares enough to insult him even when he doesn't have any reason to, as opposed to the others, who only insult him when he does something wrong.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'':
** 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.
** Stan and Gideon's bickering play with this--Gideon is ''[[EnfantTerrible genuinely evil]]'', having tried to commit murder just by the end of his first episode and spent most of the season trying to steal ownership of the Mystery Shack, but in episodes where he's not the main antagonist he spends most of his screentime [[EvilIsPetty inflicting minor, pointless torments upon Stan]]. Stan, not knowing of Gideon's worst side [[spoiler:until the first season finale]], treats the kid as simply an annoyance.
