** This is toned down in [[GameOfThrones the television adaptation]], in which Arya and Sansa still bicker and annoy each other, but generally stay to their own devices rather than engage in a real feud, with the most intense and mean-spirited occasions of rivalry from the books cut out.

** Turns out to be GenerationXerox to some extent: their mother, Helen, has an acrimonious relationship with her older sister Rita, and to a lesser extent their younger sister Amy. Rita seems to be the pretty one, Amy the smart one, and Helen the overachiever who's become the most successful. Interestingly, each sister has their own gripes towards the other two. Despite being spoiled the most by their mother, Rita felt that Helen's achievements made Amy and herself look lazy; whereas Amy got out of doing anything for the family by shutting herself in. By comparison, Amy feels that Helen was too high strung/high maintenance (going as far to congratulate Jake for putting up with her) and resented the constant attention that Rita got from their mother which in turn led to Amy constantly withdrawing herself.

Witnessing all this leads Daria and Quinn to decide that [[CharacterDevelopment they don't want to feel that kind of resentment toward each other twenty years down the line, and start working to get along with each other better]].

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Sansa and Arya Stark. Sansa fills the role of "the pretty one" - she is popular, courtly, and fashionable, but ThinksLikeARomanceNovel, though she is far from unintelligent, particularly in recent episodes. Arya lacks manners and polish, but is more StreetSmart, filling the role of "the smart one". You cannot leave them alone without both finding ways to hurt the other and then feel sorry about it later.

As the series continues they downplay this, as Sansa becomes more intelligent and manipulative while Arya grows into her looks.

* [[LovableAlphaBitch Sansa]] and [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling Arya]] Stark in George R.R. Martin's ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' ''almost'' meet the description. Sansa is ''very'' conventionally pretty, popular, accomplished in the airs and graces of high society, being also a little on the manipulative side; but, she's actually the more bookish of the two, if ''very'' [[ThinksLikeARomanceNovel naïve]] with it. Her sister's bluntness, lack of standard graces, manners and polish constantly embarrasses her and she always feels the need to call her out on any faux pas she makes. Arya is, although not particularly intellectual, rather more StreetSmart and physically co-ordinated, with a rebellious streak a mile wide, a drive to be active, a comparatively homely appearance not helped by having an aversion to primping and a ''supremely'' uninterested attitude to learning the social games of court; she is also ''very'' critical of her sister's perceived shallowness and unwillingness to get out and smell the wider reality in return for the put-downs Sansa (and her small posse) dishes out. Their relationship seems to straddle the line between truly loving each other, and CainAndAbel: you cannot leave them alone in the same room for ten minutes without each finding novel ways to hurt the other -- to then start feeling (reluctantly, if almost genuinely) sorry about it once their emotions have settled, later. At least until [[BreakTheCutie both of them are horribly broken]] [[spoiler:upon their being separated]].
** However, after [[spoiler: their entire family is murdered and/or scattered to the four winds]], Sansa develops some common sense and ingenuity as she struggles to survive, and a more grown-up Arya's looks are often praised directly by various minor characters. She is also told by her father Eddard that she looks like his sister Lyanna. Her response is "But Lyanna was beautiful." and Eddard says "Yes, she always looked like you." Or some such... it is implied that Sansa was "born beautiful" while Arya is more "[[SheIsAllGrownUp growing into her looks]]." As the books go on, you realise the root cause of a lot of their problems? They're actually NotSoDifferent: both are very strong girls with a penchant for getting their own way once they work out how to -- if, in slightly different ways.
