This trope can often serve as a warning that something may be wrong as well. When one of the VitriolicBestBuds suddenly stops responding to insults or flinging barbs of their own, the other may pick up on the sudden change in behavior as a sign that [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness something is not right]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''FanFic/TheApprenticeTheStudentAndTheCharlatan'', just about all of Nova's friendships are built on mutual sarcasm and insults, but of particular note are his friendships with Aegis, Twilight, and Trixie.

* The ''Star Wars'' series Lineage/Legacy by [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/3380015/ruth-baulding ruth baulding]] has Obi-Wan Kenobi and Garen Muln constantly wrestling with one another and dropping wry comments about the other's (lack of) intelligence, social graces, etc...yet they have also been best friends since childhood, and would die for the other without a second thought.

Added DiffLines:

* Machinima/CouriersMindRiseOfNewVegas depicts [[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas The Courier]] as an abrasive, [[HairTriggerTemper temperamental]] JerkAss who is EnragedByIdiocy and is a NominalHero at the best of the times. This puts him at odds with his various followers, most prominently [[MoralityPet ED-E]] and [[TheComicallySerious Boone]], who are quick to call him out on his more questionable decisions and keep him on the straight and narrow. Despite this, The Courier really does like and respect them.

'''NOTE:''' Due to a recent rewrite of this page, many examples will still refer to previous "type one and type two" dynamics. "Type two" is the version of the trope described above, while "type one" is a variation in which only one friend is vitriolic while the other friend is [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter completely oblivious to the vitriol]] and much, much friendlier. If you come across such an example elsewhere on the wiki, please correct it [[Administrivia/TypeLabelsAreNotExamples to be clear without the type label.]]

* Zoro and Sanji were always this in ''Franchise/OnePiece'', but the fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10909485/4/And-Nothing-But-The-Truth And Nothing But The Truth]]'' showcases it best, where some of the crew (including the aforementioned duo) are infected with a TruthSerum and leads up to Zoro and Sanji hollering out the following lines... while beating each other to a pulp.
--> '''Zoro:''' I RESPECT YOU, SWIRLS!
--> '''Sanji:''' I RESPECT YOU TOO, MOSSHEAD!

Added DiffLines:

* In ''FanFic/ThisBites'', Cross and Soundbite are this. While not as bad as Zoro and Sanji, they're both snarky, and Soundbite's pranking tendencies often get on the human's nerves, as do Cross's insults. Point of reference for how much they really care: Cross was ready to tear Miss All Sunday apart when she stole him (who, as a point of reference, is not only a future crewmate but also a powerful assassin who he had pretty much no chance of surviving a fight with in a haze of rage), and Soundbite's concern for Cross when he fell ill was as clear as day.
