* On ''DiffrentStrokes'', Dudley and Arnold's other friends would turn on him for any reason at any time in a heartbeat. Throughout the series run. After watching the TVMovie based on the cast's backstage story, one wonders if this wasn't another source of script frustration for the late GaryColeman.

* This is Heihachi and Kikuchiyo's dynamic in''Film/SevenSamurai''. Kikuchiyo is a boisterous and energetic wannabe samurai who likes to show off, and the wittier and more reserved Heihachi is Kikuchiyo's most outspoken critic who laughs at and makes fun of him constantly.

* R2-D2 and C-3P0 were said to have been modelled off of Tahei and Matashichi from ''Film/TheHiddenFortress'' who bicker and fight constantly (when they're not swearing eternal friendship to each other).

* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'': Misato and Ritsuko are old friends... although they bicker constantly, and Ritsuko seems to enjoy getting Misato riled.
-->'''Ritsuko:''' Hmm. I see you're busy. When you two are done, I need to see Misato."\\
'''Misato:''' I was just trying to find out who his girlfriend is!\\
'''Ritsuko:''' I suppose he had it written on the inside of his underwear or something?

* In ''Fanfic/{{Wonderful}}'', Taylor and Sophia are friends... after a fashion. Still they fight and argue constantly, and Taylor pokes fun at Sophia every so often.

* Oswald, Lewis, and Kate from TheDrewCareyShow more often than not screw things up for the title character. It was once revealed that they accidentally messed up Drew's resume for College in High School without him knowing and [[TheDitz Oswald]] hastily wrote one to cover it up and putting idiotic things in it like saying that his favorite animal was a bunny. With how much they mess things up, it's a wonder Drew didn't put poison in their beers and tell them it was a new flavor.

* Jay and Will from ''TheInbetweeners''. The dynamics are like this among the four main characters: Will and Simon are best friends, and Jay and Neil are best friends. Will and Simon both consider Neil a friend in the end due to him being generally nice though his [[TheDitz stupidity]] often annoys them. Simon and Jay often seem to hate each other, but they have been friends for 13 years, so in the end, they have some grudging respect for each other and sticks together due to simply having known each other so long. However, Will - the newcomer to the group - and Jay have basically nothing in common. 98 % of their interaction consists of them insulting each other (even interrupting each other's conversations to do it), and Jay trying to get Will in trouble. Jay has a very, very few PetTheDog moments towards Will that ''may'' suggest they're really VitriolicBestBuds deep down, but most of the time they are this trope.
* ''TheGoldenGirls'' often verged on this. For one example, in "The Artist" Blanche, Rose and Dorothy lie to each other repeatedly, fight over the same man ([[spoiler: who turns out to be gay, but they don't know that]]), and spend the whole episode basically calling each other old, fat and ugly, only for the artist at the end to commend them on what wonderful friends they are.

** At some point in the series, Del will be such a manipulative and dangerous friend to Boycie, Trigger, Denzil and Mike that it is any wonder that they like him at all (and despite everything, we see in ''Sickness and Health'' when they thought that he might be dying that they do). Highlights include narrowly escaping an exploding bus, poisoning them with toxic waste, strong arming Denzil to hand over his redundancy money and burning Mike's head with an electric paint stripper that he passed off as a hairdryer. Boycie is the only one who comes close to also being this trope. In one early episode the man was perfectly willing to take absolutely everything that the Trotters owned over a game of cards that he was cheating in.
