** Sabrina also holds great respect for Ash's abilities, even if Ash has a lot less reason to acknowledge her the same as he would the other gym leaders, and extends this to [[spoiler: Ash's Pokedex, for its plan against her]].

** Also helping matters is the fact that Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward and Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, each a player that the other team could not stand, have both since retired. Following their departures, the rivalry has become a bit more respectful in recent years.

This leads to a declaration by one of the two that they have found their adversary a worthy challenge, or some variation of that. It can be privately said or publicly admitted; what matters is that the character in question acknowledges and respects their opponent for their skill.

* Throughout ''Fanfic/{{Traveler}}'', Ash gains the respect of every gym leader he's faced, with almost all of them extending open invitations to come back for a rematch against their real team whenever he wants. The sole exception is Erika who isn't as much of a BloodKnight/ChallengeSeeker as the others and after their first rematch, Ash agrees not to face her again, partially due to how easily he won.

* Harry Potter in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11669575/50/For-Love-of-Magic For Love of Magic]]'' respects Adrastia Zabini as a fellow manipulator and intends to keep the game going between them even after he's enslaved her. Harry notes that she likely feels the same as they kept metaphorically circling each other like hungry tigers for years rather than avoiding each other as two dangerous people who weren't enemies. Notably, Harry doesn't extend any of this respect to Voldemort as he feels the man is too StupidEvil to be interesting and can't even answer [[AndThenWhat what he'll do once he conquers the magical world]].

-->"I miss the hush. When I meet an opponent worthy of me. [[BattleHaltingDuel Everyone around us stops to watch]]. The din of battle drains away like a wave.
