* In the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, ''Film/AntMan'' shows that Hank Pym and Howard Stark had a bitter falling out after the former found out the latter was trying to replicate his shrinking technology to use in military weapons. Hank is so bitter about it that he refuses to contact Howard's son Tony to help him with a mission. Then in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', Hank's protege Scott Lang [[spoiler: is furious at Tony for locking him, Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, and the Falcon in prison]] and tells him that Hank was right about the Starks. On the other hand, this is the first time Tony has ever met Scott and he has no idea who he is or what he's talking about.

* In ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'', after the Freeza saga, there's a RunningGag of the villains either not knowing or not caring about Vegeta.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Jaune Arc became determined to stop Cinder Fall after she destroyed his school and murdered his love interest Pyrrha Nikos. In "The More The Merrier", when they finally meet, Jaune angrily demands to know why she has caused so much pain and death. She flatly says she has no idea who he is and doesn't care. Enraged, he attacks her, but she merely toys with him and clearly doesn't take him seriously... until he barely manages to graze her mask. [[MinorInjuryOverreaction Then she gets pissed, beats him up, and says he will suffer for having the audacity to attack her]].

* 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.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaPahkitewIsland'' Ella seems completely oblivious to how much Sugar despises her (because [[EvilCannotComprehendGood Sugar thinks Ella's sweet personality is a facade like hers]] and want steal her spotlight).

* In the CrisisCrossover fic ''Fanfic/ShadowchasersTournamentOfShadows'', Ace's biggest goal in competing in the tournament is to duel Ember in the finals and win, because she wants to do so in such a public setting; however, the two have never formally met. (The two are part of the same global organization, and Ember has had a great deal more time in the limelight than Ace, both in-universe and out, managing to defeat and avert ''two'' world-threatening crisis on her own. Ace has never achieved such feats, despite having joined at almost the same time. Because the fic is currently in progress, it remains unknown whether or not she'll get her wish.)

* ''FanFic/RivalsSeries'': Yuuri is this to Viktor; Yuuri has devoted a decade of his life to breaking Viktor's winning streak and unseating him as the best skater in the world, after Viktor tactlessly insulted him when he was a fan. While Viktor deeply respects Yuuri's abilities and acknowledges him as his only equal, he interprets their personal relationship [[LoveHurts in a completely different light]].

** In ''Anime/GundamBuildDivers'', this is Riku's attitude towards Do-ji. During Riku and his friend Yukio's first day, they are tricked into a battle by Do-ji and Do-ji gets his comeuppance when Riku is able to overpower and destroy his Gunpla. While Do-ji frets and worries about his next encounter with Riku and how much his brother sees him as a WorthyOpponent, Riku's been more worried about the very serious Break Decal threat. This just fuels Do-ji's IneffectualSympatheticVillain attitude and helps in its {{deconstruction}}.

** On the topic of consoles, NEC apparently tried to pick a fight with Sega via their ComicBooks/JohnnyTurbo comics, solely because Sega was the only other console manufacturer at the time who had a CD-ROM accessory out for their console. They even went as far as disputing Sega's claim that the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis was the first 16-bit console in the market and that the UsefulNotes/TurboGrafx16 was first (which isn't technically correct, the main CPU of the [=TG16=] was an 8-bit 6502 derivative). Sega most likely didn't care as they did nothing to respond in kind to NEC.
