* ''VideoGame/ShadowrunReturns'': The relationship between Altug and Jan could have been this, except for that it's completely one-sided. Jan loves to sit in Altug's café listen to Altug's FloweryInsults (he finds them hilarious), whereas Altug considers Jan extremely annoying and only tolerates him because he "eats his weight in baklava". When the café is attacked by terrorists, Jan takes a bullet for Altug, leaving Altug saddened, remorseful and quite confused about what kind of man Jan was and what their relationship was really like.

*** Masao "Mark" Inaba and Kei "Nate" Nanjo from the ''Revelations: VideoGame/{{Persona}}''.
*** Eikichi Mishina and Lisa Silverman in ''VideoGame/Persona2: Innocent Sin''. Both have derisive nicknames for each other, and argue constantly. At a certain point in the game, Lisa is revealed to be with an unsavory character, and Eikichi states that they better go find them before Lisa murders the guy. Another character (the CoolBigSis) mentions that Eikichi is just saying that, and he really seems worried about Lisa.
*** Junpei Iori and Yukari Takeba have this relationship in ''VideoGame/Persona3''. Junpei is also implied to have this dynamic with the main character.
*** ''VideoGame/Persona5'': Ryuji Sakamoto's dynamic with TrueCompanions Ann Takamaki and Morgana, who constantly give him shade for being BookDumb and having no NoIndoorVoice, but also trust him with their lives and hang out constantly. [[spoiler: Though it's also deconstructed in the latter case, as a particularly bad argument between the two leads to Morgana leaving the team for a while.]] Futaba Sakura and Yusuke Kitagawa also tend to constantly bicker, thanks in large part to a mutual lack of any social skills. Nonetheless, Yusuke is still one of the first people that Futaba opens up to.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/FaeryLegendsOfAvalon'', this is how Amareta thinks friendship should always work, since she equates politeness with insincerity and manipulation. She's quite happy to laugh at jokes you make at her expense, and dislikes it if you're always trying to praise and compliment her.

** Similarly to the above instance, in Dragon Age 2, Anders and Fenris genuinely do despise each other. If you [[spoiler:sell Fenris out back to his old slave master who abused him greatly,]] Anders is the only member of your team who will approve.
