* In ''Anime/YuYuHakusho'', Kuwabara was this to Yusuke before the story began, as shown in flashbacks. Kuwabara was obsessed with defeating Yusuke, but it took a few fights before Yusuke even started to remember his name. When the series begins, Yusuke still doesn't consider Kuwabara a serious rival, since he easily wins every single fight. Eventually, Kuwabara abandons the rivalry and becomes friends with Yusuke, more focused on getting through the Dark Tournament and then the Black Chapters crisis alive.

* Sixshot of ''TransformersEnergon'' became incensed with destroying Optimus Prime after believing he killed his brother Shockblast. However while he had near successes, he remained hidden inside a control booth of Cybertron the whole time, usually disobeying and clashing with Galvatron [[OnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou in doing such]]. This conflict culminated in a coup against Galvatron from which he recovered and killed Sixshot, ironically before Optimus even knew of his existance. This was somewhat poetic, since it was actually Galvatron who killed Shockwave via Unicron.

* Played with in ''Anime/CardcaptorSakura''. It's not that Sakura doesn't know Syaoran is rivalling her for the Clow Cards, she's even a bit genuinely intimidated by it, just she doesn't understand why it's a rivalry for the large part. She even thanks Syaoran for helping her collect some or even gives him ones she believes he earned more. This complete lack of amnesty eventually wears down Syaoran's competitive streak until he's more just her ally.

** Jessie rivaled May in Pokemon contests during the Hoenn era, but she almost always failed miserably, leading May to sparsely acknowledge her (especially since she was usually in disguise). Subverted in Sinnoh, where Jessie was a more legitimate competition for Dawn, while Kalos zigzags this, she started off at her Hoenn-level incompetence against Serena, but slowly improved enough to earn impressed commentary and at least one Princess Key.

* ''Webcomic/{{Nebula}}'': Jupiter devotes the majority of his waking moments to trying to find a way to kill Sun and [[TheStarscream take his place as leader]]. Because he's incredibly obvious about it, Sun ''knows'', but finds him to be so little of a threat that he's just vaguely concerned about the possibility Jupiter injuring himself in the course of a ZanyScheme to try and kill him instead of holding him as any sort of serious rival.

* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'': Lord Shen has spent the greater part of two decades meticulously preparing for his eventual battle with Po, but Po sees Shen as just some random baddie to stop. Po is completely unaware of the [[YouKilledMyFather deeply personal role]] Shen [[GenocideBackfire played in his history]], having only learned he existed a few days before meeting him. Even after he learns the truth, he refuses to make their conflict [[ItsPersonal personal]], which absolutely [[EvilCannotComprehendGood baffles]] Shen.

* Wendy Mass' short story "The Stars at the Finish Line" averts this - the protagonist's academic rivalry with a girl he has a crush on has nabbed him excellent grades. When he mentions this to her close to the end of the story, she acts confused...then laughs and reveals that of course the rivalry was mutual; she was just messing with his head.
