* ComicBook/LexLuthor and TheJoker are a [[VillainousFriendship villainous example]] of this. No matter how often they fall out, no matter how often they come to blows, no matter how often they've tried to torture or kill one another they'll always end up working together again. Each has confessed to enjoying the other's company, and inasmuch as either is ''capable'' of having a friend, they view the other as someone who is fun to hang around with.

** Similarly, ComicBook/DoctorDoom and Namor the ComicBook/SubMariner are this. They're both pompous blowhard monarchs who can tolerate very few other people on the planet, and they fight half of the time in the comic series Supervillain Team-Up, but they respect each other as monarchs, and powerful individuals who make hard decisions whereas most people both of them deal with don't rule nations. The only person that comes close to their position is ComicBook/BlackPanther but he doesn't share their arrogance.

* DependingOnTheWriter, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker either imagines that he and Franchise/{{Batman}} have an extreme variation on the trope, or just pretends he does because it bugs Batman.

** Reggie seems to have this relationship with ''everyone'' in the cast8cast8, which begs the question why they put up with him anyway.
** The aversion of this trope is one of the most noticeable deconstructions in ''ComicBook/AfterlifeWithArchie''. Veronica and Betty absolutely ''hate'' each other, [[spoiler:though when Veronica's mom died Betty comforted her.]] Veronica has HiddenDepths behind her aggressive personality but is constantly at odds with Betty

** Deadpool and {{Taskmaster}} have also had this type of "friendship"- perhaps said best by Taskmaster: "The things I do for the friends I can't stand..."

* [[ComicBook/Batgirl2000 Batgirl and Spoiler]] are HeterosexualLifePartners, but when they team up there is almost always good-natured grumbling on Stephanie's part, while Cassandra often playfully teases Stephanie about her comparatively inferior combat ability.

* In those continuities where ComicBook/LoisLane ''doesn't'' know [[{{Superman}} Clark Kent and Superman]] are the same person (for instance the Christopher Reeve films or ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'') she is usually this to Clark, enjoying a very friendly workplace rivalry with him and affectionately chastising him for his timidity. In the ''very'' early GoldenAge her dislike for Clark was genuine but their relationship quickly evolved into this trope.

Later, more often in the post-crisis stories this went even further as her teasing [[HeIsNotMyBoyfriend covered up a massive crush on Clark.]]

Added DiffLines:

** But all this pales in comparison to Spider-Man's unsolicited and unwanted "friendship" with Comicbook/{{Deadpool}}. Deadpool just ''loooooooves'' pressing Spidey's buttons, but will never hesitate to help clean up the messes he starts in Peter's life, and seems genuinely fond of the wall-crawler, sometimes even going out of his way just to hang out with him. Spidey, while often forced to admit that Deadpool does have his moments, more often wishes he would just go away.

* [[Characters/XMenOtherTeams Santo (Rockslide)]] treats everyone like this, at least all the staff and students at the [[Comicbook/{{X-Men}} Xavier Institute]]. Anole, Pixie, and Mercury return it with the most obvious friendship.
