* PC Gaming magazines seem to be full of articles about why consoles are vastly inferior to PC. An issue of PC Gamer had an article on building a perfect gaming rig for under $600, which concluded with the line "Take that, consoles!" This seems to be a fairly one-sided sentiment on the part of PC gamers. For the most part, people that prefer consoles don't really see a rivalry with PC. This changed somewhat in the new teens, when thanks to the "PC Master Race" meme PC gamers got upgraded to "annoying".

* In the LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/PrincessMaker'' Lizzie Shinkicker earned the rivalry of Wendy because her magic prowess was ''slightly'' better then the rest. Every encounter with Wendy was hilariously short, as Wendy was a SquishyWizard and Lizzie was [[LightningBruiser well-rounded]] enough that she could often defeat Wendy in one hit from her sword. Cube even comments on Wendy's desire to beat Lizzie as a "suicidal delusion."
* Wiki/TVTropes versus Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} (Wiki/ThatOtherWiki if you're feeling bitter about it) with TV Tropes as the unknown one.

* ''Manga/GabrielDropOut'' has this with between Gabriel and Satania, the latter of which considers the former's actions (tardiness, sleeping in class, and doodling on textbooks) as high level acts of villainy, and strives to one-up her someday. Gabriel, on the other hand, doesn't give a damn about Satania.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Ramsay Snow/Bolton was this initially with Jon Snow. Before becoming Warden of the North, Ramsay was rather interested in Jon Snow, who didn't even know much about Ramsay beyond being a Bolton bastard son. Ramsay mentions Jon Snow to his father, citing that despite his bastardry, Jon is still a Stark and is a threat to their rule. Later, he tells Sansa (whose eyes light up upon hearing this) that her half-brother Jon Snow has become Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, citing this as proof that bastard children can rise high in the world.

* In ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' Asuka often comes across as this to Rei, especially where [[LoveTriangle Shinji]] is involved, while Rei barely ever acknowledges Asuka at all. Subverted in that Rei's internal monologue indicates that she, at least on some subconscious level, actually does consider Asuka something of a rival, but since [[TheStoic this]] [[TheQuietOne is]] [[ShyBlueHairedGirl Rei]] she is somewhat confused by these feelings as she cannot fully understand them and she gives no outward acknowledgment of this.

* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in the final season of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' with the High Priestess of [[ReligionOfEvil the Cult of Aku]] who is Aku's unknown ''ally''. She's quick to claim that she's a trusted and highly valued follower of Aku, but in truth, the villain only visited her cult once and has since then completely forgotten about her. He spends most of the season utterly unaware of her scheme to kill Jack. [[spoiler:He does eventually remember her when her plan ends up benefiting him in roundabout way.]]

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' does this a few times:
** In the first season, Oliver was unaware Malcom Merlyn was behind many of the actions of the year and was also the murderous Dark Archer. Even when Ollie suspected Malcom, he thought the Archer was just Malcom's enforcer, which nearly got him killed when he confronted Merlyn on his own.
** For his part, Malcom didn't know until the finale that his son's best friend was the vigilante fighting him all year.
** In the second season, Ollie doesn't know until mid-way through the year that his various challenges are from former ally turned enemy Slade Wilson.
** Oliver believed Isabel Rochev was a partner and shrewd businesswoman. It's only after Isabel takes over his company that Oliver finds out she's working with Slade, out for revenge after Oliver's father broke off their affair.
** Finally, Oliver considers Sebastian Blood a good ally, not knowing he's the murderous Brother Blood, another agent of Slade's.
** The fourth season has Oliver discovering that many of the threats he's been facing over the years were secretly the work of Damien Darkh and HIVE who are upset the Arrow has spoiled their plans.
