* Pepsi seems to be this to Coke. Most of their ads are in the form of a TakeThat, trying to show how Pepsi is superior, while Coke's ads just show people having fun while drinking Coke, and never even mention Pepsi. The {{Irony}} of the whole thing is that by showing Coke products in their ads, Pepsi is effectively advertising for Coke as much as they are themselves, because most people don't pay close enough attention to commercials to pick up more than basic messages like logos and names.

:: All of this led up to an X-Factor annual issue where a mutant-hating former classmate of Strong Guy's showed up, having devoted his life to the dark arts and become a servant of [[{{Satan}} Mephisto]]. In order to defeat X-Factor, he brought back their three greatest enemies from the dead -- the three brothers who had died over the past three issues, none of whom had so much as been seen by X-Factor. So in the massive, climactic battle, an unknown rival resurrected ''three more'' unknown rivals. When the villains introduced themselves, Polaris asked if they were sure they had the right X-team.
--> '''Strong Guy''': That figures! Only we could have a bunch of "greatest enemies" that we never heard of.

** Axel from ''Disgaea II''0. Axel becomes this again in ''Disgaea 4'', but with a twist; he hates Valvatorez with a passion, after Val's rebellion made Axel look like a rebel too, and he lost his job and status. The twist is that Valvatorez actually thought Axel ''was'' an ally, thanks to Fenrich's lies, and is utterly incapable of understanding that Axel has anything against him, even claiming he's an imposter because the ''real'' Axel wouldn't do that.

When Jane graduated top of the class, the woman's father basically disowned her and her life went downhill, all of which she's blamed on Jane, who's amazed as she never paid much attention to the woman in the academy and didn't even know they were "competing."

* 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 [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou 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.

* 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.
