*** Debuting alongside Shadow was Rouge the Bat, who serves as TheRival to Knuckles. They're both treasure hunters, but for Knuckles it's more of a hobby and his main job is guarding the all powerful Master Emerald, while Rouge is an outright thief who attempts to steal it. This dynamic tends to be laced with FoeYay however.

* The eponymous character of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' tends to attract a lot of these characters for various reasons.
** Originally it was Knuckles. In his debut Knuckles fought against Sonic & Tails due to [[ManipulativeBastard manipulations]] by Dr. Eggman. After Eggman revealed himself as the BigBad, Knuckles teams up with the duo to stop him. Afterward, probably due to their egos, Sonic & Knuckles clashed for one reason or another, mostly due to the latter [[UnwittingPawn being tricked by Eggman into doing so.]] Their rivalry has kind of dissipated in recent years due to other adversaries showing up and Knuckles becoming more of an ally, but still pops up now and then.
** Since Sonic & Knuckles were slowly becoming friends, Shadow debuted as the new, darker rival for Sonic. Unlike Knuckles, Shadow was ''not'' being tricked into fighting the heroes and was in fact a dangerous foe in his debut. Originally didn't pay Sonic much attention outside of accusing him of copying his style, but due to Sonic's tenacity and cheating death he earned Shadow's respect and acknowledgment as a WorthyOpponent. Even after Shadow's eventual HeelFaceTurn, this dynamic is retained and the two clash quite often before teaming up against a common foe.

*** Even in spite of his [[GlowingEyesofDoom glowing]], [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eye]] when he lets his SuperPoweredAlterEgo take over, Raiden in ''Revengeance'' is still more commonly associated with blue (given his lightning motif) than Sam, who has a red and black artificial arm and a sword with a crimson blade, fully inverting the trope.

* The early parts of ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'' had this with the partner and Pancham at first. This is shown in many ways, such as when you go with Espurr and Deerling, while your partner makes Pancham's team fail, and the partner and Pancham argue.

* There are many rivalries from the [[NintendoWars Advance Wars]] series between [=COs=] (Commanding Officers). [[AcePilot Eagle]] and [[JackOfAllStats Andy]] (one of the missions where you fight Eagle is even named "Rivals!"), [[ActionGirl Sami]] and [[{{Meganekko}} Sonja]] and possibly Grit and [[BoisterousBruiser Max]] from the first game, [[SmugSnake Adder]] and [[OldMaster Sensei]] and [[EvilGenius Lash]] and [[{{Meganekko}} Sonja]] from the second game, and possibly [[MagnificentBastard Hawke]] and [[IceQueen Candy/Kindle]] from the third. ''Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict'' doesn't have rivalries as such; everybody generally just hates each other, except for the NRA and IDS (the two main antagonist armies of the game) who get along nicely. [[spoiler: Except when in a [[TheReveal reveal]] the player finds out that Caulder/Stolos (the MadScientist and BigBad) couldn't really care less about anyone living or dying (the NRA included), apart from when [[ForScience it has "scientific" purposes,]] and essentially leaves the NRA to crumble after its defeat.]]

** Bowser is sort of like this to Mario, kidnapping Princess Peach and being defeated all the time and usually teaming up with the Mario Bros. when there's a bigger threat.
