* Discussed in ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/5710513/chapters/13155583 Renegades]]''. By this point in the ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' timeline, Oliver has thrown Laurel's addiction struggles in her face twice (including telling her to drink herself to death), been completely unsupportive when she was starting as the Black Canary, and has said ''very'' demeaning things to her. Laurel at one point laments to Felicity how bad her relationship with him has become
-->'''Felicity:''' He just snaps at you and gets so angry with you. Heís not like that with anyone else. We all see it. I donít know why, but I want to believe it comes from some place of caring about you. If he didnít care he wouldnít be so angry, right?
-->'''Laurel:''' It was hard, at first, to let go of the idea that he would ever be there for me the way I had been there for him and his family. I thought I was doing so well, until tonight. No one has ever been able to cut me down like he can.
** To his credit, Oliver later admits he's been a terrible friend to her for awhile now, and starts treating her like an actual friend.

* It's hard to call ''Film/BadBoys'' a [[BuddyCopShow Buddy Cop film]], since Mike and Marcus spend so much time fighting and throwing insults at each other, with few moments of peace and friendship. In ''Bad Boys II'', on the other hand, they're practically HeterosexualLifePartners.

* [[BigEater Meeko]] and [[ButtMonkey Percy]] (somehow) become friends at the end of Disney/{{Pocahontas}}. Enter the DirectToVideo [[{{Sequelitis}} sequel]], and [[{{Jerkass}} Meeko]] is still tormenting Percy by stealing his food.

* ''Manga/DGrayman'' Kanda is like this with the few people who can put up with him. Lavi seems to enjoy his company, having fun teasing him while Kanda keeps insulting and threatening him. He is a bit softer with Lenalee but often makes very crude comments to her. Then there is a very odd case with Allen with whom they are TrueCompagnons while ''''Genuinely''' hating each others.

Added DiffLines:

* Talia and Brody in ''ComicBook/BrodysGhost''; the former is pushy, snarky, turns Brody's life completely upside down, [[spoiler:lies to him and cruelly manipulates him,]] and the latter is crusty, often unsympathetic, and constantly bemoaning running into the former. Somehow, they remain friends [[spoiler:even at the end of the series. Sort of.]]

* In ''Literature/TheMachineriesOfEmpire'', the six Hexarchate factions are mired in infighting, and Kel Command is as dangerous to Kel Cheris as the heretics she's supposed to be fighting are, if not more so.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'': What makes Ibaraki-dōji memorable is his blatantly masochistic loyalty toward his old friend [[JerkAss Shuten-dōji]], even though the latter treats him like dirt the moment they reunite and, as commented by Seimei, never really acted like a proper friend in the first place.

* J. Wellington Wimpy has sold out {{Popeye}} on multiple occasions for the promise of food, safety or money. Not to mention that Wimpy mooches off Popeye on a regular basis. The rest of the town hates him, and Olive seems to only put up with him because he's friends with Popeye. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Wimpy does, however, draw the line with killing.]]
* Hector to Jeremy from ''ComicStrip/{{Zits}}''. Most of times, he isn't very supportive, preferring to be a DeadpanSnarker instead. Not very helpful for Jeremy's self-esteem. Emblematic in this sense, the series of strips in which both guys do an IQ test, and Jeremy scores only 38. All that Hector (who scored 108) can say in response to depression of a friend, is more or less: "[[JerkAss Hey, what should I say, I have an underdeveloped as friend.]]". [[spoiler: For the record, at last Jeremy discovers that the test is not reliable at all: his father did the test too, and he scored a little bit too high, for a guy who doesn't even know how to use a computer.]]



* It's sometimes difficult to tell why the titular ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' are friends at all. Hobbes condescends to Calvin, attacks him for no reason, occasionally bullies him, and has betrayed him for his own gain multiple times, while Calvin tends to see Hobbes as little more than a partner for his own schemes and often treats him no better than Hobbes treats him. The implication seems to be that because Calvin is so terrible, he has to take what friends he can get, and even Hobbes may or may not be imaginary.

** Luke himself is typically quite abrasive toward his companions (even Ion and Mieu, the only two people who put up with him no matter what he does), refuses to admit that he is wrong or that Van is in any way untrustworthy and is also quite selfish (he wants to save Akzeriuth Van's way because it will make him a hero and because Van promised to take him to Daath).
