* Hamfistedly [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Rival-san Lendo of the Rival Ninja Corporation in the manga-inspired American comic book ''NinjaHighSchool''.
* The Thing is generally portrayed as this when fighting Hulk, and the same can be said of Captain Marvel and Superman.
** Namor the Submariner and the Hulk were both mainly used as [[DesignatedAntagonist obstacles for heroes]] in early comics, which may be why writers decided to pit them against each other. Hulk hates Namor's rudeness and arrogance and Namor hates Hulk's childish behavior and stupidity. The rivalry remained even when they were on the same team.
*** Admittedly thanks to their time on the Defenders they act more like squabbling siblings as opposed to actually trying to kill each other.
** Wolverine is also seen as Hulk's rival. That's probably because Wolverine debuted in Hulk's book.
* SpiderMan and [[ComicBook/FantasticFour the Human Torch]] have had a friendly rivalry for a long time, pretty much their entire careers, in fact.
** Speaking of Spider-Man, a more dangerous example would be Spidey and [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Comicbook/Venom Venom]]. Even after Venom has "reformed" they're still fierce rivals.

* Book 3 of [[ComicBook/LesLegendaires Les Légendaires]] introduce a group of hero named the [[PowerTrio Fabulous]] (consisting in asian-like swordman [[TheLeader Michi-Gan]], [[LastOfHisKind Comanshawas]] warrior [[TheStoic Shaki]] and Michi-Gan's foster daughter [[ChildProdigy Toopie]]) who started out as this to the [[TheProtagonist Legendaries]]. Notably, while the Fabulous displayed the typical jerkass rival attitude toward the Legendaries at the beginning, it was arguably justified: not only were the Legendaries at this point still [[HeroWithBadPublicity blamed by everyone]] for [[NiceJobBreakingItHero the Jovenia Incident]], but the Fabulous also reproached the Legendaries to have disbanded for two years in reaction to the blame, thus not being there when Alysia needed them ([[ThePaladin Danael]] later admits they were right on this point). On the other hand, the Fabulous placing themselves as replacement to the Legendaries while calling them outdated and constantly criticizing them didn't really made them easy to sympathise with at first. After the two teams were forced to collaborate, they eventually developped mutual respect, and are in good relationship in the following books.
* Jason Todd sees entire {{Batman}} Family as his Rivals. Most his plots are primarily based off of his desire to prove he's better. He constantly says that his aim to be a better Batman than Bruce Wayne ever was.
