* ''Film/HailCaesar'' to ''Film/{{Trumbo}}'', which was released just a few months before it. Both films are period pieces about 1950's Hollywood, revolving around dramatized versions of {{Historical Domain Character}}s (Eddie Mannix and Dalton Trumbo, respectively) who end up dealing with the RedScare as it hits Hollywood. But while ''Trumbo'' is a serious drama about a screenwriter [[UsefulNotes/TheHollywoodBlacklist wrongly persecuted for his Communist leanings]], ''Hail, Caesar!'' is a wacky BlackComedy where [[spoiler: the bad guys turn out to be ''actual'' Communist screenwriters]]. Amusingly both films are also nostalgic throwbacks to post-war cinema, featuring multiple sequences taking place on movie sets while in-universe [[ShowWithinAShow Films Within a Film]] play out. ''Hail, Caesar!'' also features many NoCelebritiesWereHarmed versions of the historical figures who actually appear in ''Trumbo'', but it portrays them completely differently: ''Trumbo'' has Hedda Hopper as [[HistoricalVillainUpgrade the main villain]], while ''Hail, Caesar!'' has her FictionalCounterpart(s) [[SingleMindedTwins Thora and Thessaly Thatcher]] as a comedic nuisance; ''Trumbo'' features Creator/JohnWayne as a villainous bully, while ''Hail, Caesar!'' has the fictional cowboy actor Hobie Doyle (a loose parody of Creator/RoyRogers) as a good-hearted [[TheDitz ditz]]; ''Trumbo'' has Creator/KirkDouglas as a heroic idealist, while ''Hail, Caesar!'' has his FictionalCounterpart Baird Whitlock as a bumbling prima donna.

* ''MarriedWithChildren'' was this for ''TheCosbyShow'', contrasting the loving, upper middle-class, black Huxtables with the [[DysfunctionalFamily dysfunctional]], lower-class, white Bundys.

* The two {{Animated Adaptation}}s of ''Nekojiru'' are opposites of one another, and how they depict their source material: the earlier animated short series takes the more mundane stories and focuses on the scathing satirical elements, while [[Anime/CatSoup the OVA]] compiles the [[MindScrew bizarre, fantastic elements]] into one BigDamnMovie.

* There's a very good reason that Website/{{Reddit}} and Website/{{Tumblr}} have such an infamously bitter FandomRivalry. Their respective communities and general user culture are complete opposites in every way, practically to JekyllAndHyde levels. Reddit attracts mostly white males, and it's known for being hospitable to Libertarian politics, but it's frequently criticized for attracting militant atheists and openly anti-feminist users. By contrast, Tumblr users are predominantly women, the site is much more actively welcoming to non-white users, and it's known for being hospitable to Liberal and Progressive politics, but it's frequently criticized for attracting radical feminists and openly anti-white rhetoric. In general, Redditors are often stereotyped as smug intellectuals who will gleefully rub even the tiniest factual errors in other users' faces, while Tumblr users are often stereotyped as hysterical crusaders who make passionate speeches without bothering to do the proper research.

** The series itself is built the same way. While the first series was one long story, the second series is broken up into individual seasons with new villains each time. While the original series has them traveling all over the world, the new series stays mostly in the Republic City although this element fell away as the series got extended. Finally, Aang is facing a decidedly external enemy, the Fire Lord, whereas Korra must deal with problems that she helped cause in the first place, and constantly has to worry that her decisions are making the world worse instead of better.

** [[VideoGame/KidIcarus Pit]] received one in VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} when she was revealed to be the Smash Ballot Winner. Pit appears an earnest young angel who is decidedly on the side of good and leads the armies of Skyworld (basically his series' analogue of heaven) against the forces of The Underworld (his series' hell). Bayonetta appears as a FemmeFatale who fights for the legions of Inferno (her series' hell) against the forces of Paradisio (her series' heaven). Both of them have more in common then either would care to admit.

*** Specifically, look at ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' and ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''. At face value, they have similar premises: A [[HumbleHero working-class hero]] going up against a [[CrimefightingWithCash wealthy hero]] over ideological differences. However, look at their subtitles: whereas ''Dawn of Justice'' is about former enemies who help ''found'' the SharedUniverse's SuperTeam, ''CivilWar'' is about former allies who ''break-up'' the SuperTeam.

** His run on ''{{Supreme}}'' is the opposite to his Marvelman -- in both cases Moore takes character of FlyingBrick based on Superman, who was also the epitome of the [[TheAgesOfSuperheroComics age]] during which he was created, with all its flaws, and molds him into the complete opposite, while making him more complex and interesting than he was before. The difference lies in tone - while Moore turns Marvelman towards DarkerAndEdgier waters, while breaking apart many traditional tropes of UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}, Supreme under his guidance took path towards LighterAndSofter territory and paid tribute to the same tropes Marvelman tore apart.

* Creator/StephenRDonaldson is most famous for writing ''Literature/ChroniclesOfThomasCovenant'', a HighFantasy story about a man from Earth who is forcibly transported into another world and spends most of his time [[JustADream refusing to believe that anything he sees is real.]] An indication that he might be right is that the story is described mainly in cerebral terms, with things and people often coming across more as the personification of ideas than as real things. Donaldson later wrote ''Literature/MordantsNeed'', a LowFantasy story about a woman from Earth who accepts an invitation to go to another world, where she is told (and almost convinced) that she and her own world has no reality of its own but is purely the creation of Mordant's magic. The story is told in very naturalistic, sensual terms, with much emphasis on physical sensation and practical constraints, and characters are generally messy, flawed and very human.
