Grace and Damien were arch enemies in
El Goonish Shive Hitlerella is Wonderella's Arch Enemy in .
The Non-Adventures of Wonderella - Xaos to The Wotch.
The Order of the Stick. Xykon is Arch Enemy to Roy Greenhilt; by inheritance at first, but after they met a couple times, Roy's reasons for wanting Xykon dead(er) have become more his own than his father's. The twist here is that Xykon rarely if ever remembers who Greenhilt even , let alone that he's supposed to be his nemesis. He is aware he has nemeses, but Xykon has is ruined so many lives (and afterlives) that he can't be bothered to remember any single one in particular.
Elan had Nale; over the course of the fifth book, the position was usurped by Tarquin, cemented when Tarquin killed Nale.
Haley has Crystal (even if she has no idea what an arch-nemesis is), Bozzok, and Sabine.
The main female in every evil joint the Order encounters is bound to become an Arch Enemy of Haley (the Thieves' Guild - Crystal, the bandits - Samantha, the Linear Guild - Sabine and Kitty the hawk, Team Evil - Tsukiko), though only about half of them stick around. The exception so far is the Empress of Blood, probably because no one wants to be the Arch Enemy of that.
Belkar, at least, is of the impression that Sabine is Haley's one true Arch Enemy. This is actually Lampshaded by Haley, who notes this tendency and comments that she should have chosen 'Favored Enemy - Flying Skank' as her class ability.
: Bun-Bun's arch-nemesis is Santa Claus, whom he tries to kill every Christmas that he's not stuck in an endless void outside of time. Bun-Bun doesn't actually remember Sluggy Freelance why he hates Santa so much, but he's not about to let that stand in the way of a good grudge.
: Andy's nemesis is Casey and Andy Grover Cleveland. Yes, the president.
: Until the latest chapter the series really wasn't Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures that melodramatic, but now for Dan it's a toss up between Dark Pegasus and Regina Darkblood. Dark Pegasus is more dangerious and re-occuring (Dan has killed him twice), but with Regina it is far, far more personal.
: Darkbringer for Lightbringer. Both believe in an objective morality, but whereas Lightbringer believes what is "good" is the correct moral standard Darkbringer believes what is "evil" is the correct moral standard.
Lightbringer Super Hero Plot Twist from Acrobat has Plot Hole (yes, that's how they're calling themselves). It's Personal, but no one, even Plot Twist, knows why.
Also, Coil had Mr. Kawagai before he committed suicide and Magnum has guy who created his armor.
- Energize has Saroth and Cheggras, while Ferless has Death.
Energize - Dasien has Lord Crismon.
Dasien - Lisa has Evil Mechagical Girl Lisa ANT Magical Girl Pink Flash.
- The Hero and Iron Talon
Hero By Night : 8-Bit Theater Sarda to Black Mage, for seemingly no reason.
At first. has Daisy Archanis and Jason Spades; Jason probably cares more about Daisy than vice versa, though in Daisy's defense, she's got a lot more to worry about (namely, Last Res0rt Veled) most of the time.
has Zeera The Space Pirate rival Space Pirate Kaligula, although this becomes less heated as time goes on, and the corrupt space cops become her real nemesis.
In , Spinnerette's arch nemesis is... Spinnerette. No, this isn't a case of Spinnerette Enemy Within, they just both happened to pick the same supranym. And then started fighting over it. They now distinguish each other as "Good Spinnerette" and "Evil Spinnerette."
" The Adventures of Gyno-Star" features two main arch-enemies: Uber-sexist Vlad Deferens, and The Stay-at-Home Mommy
In , Seymour to Lil'E.
Sinfest In , the trolls recognize archenmity as a type of romantic, sexual relationship known as Homestuck kismeissitude. Examples are Snowman/Spades Slick, past Eridan/Vriska, past but very recent Terezi/Vriska, and Karkat/John (unrequited because human John doesn't have a concept of romantic hate). In Act 6, Karkat seems to be soliciting Dave as a kismesis, as Dave has drawn Terezi's romantic (non-hate) attention away from Karkat. Dave does not react well to this; like John, he's not comfortable with romantic hate, especially from another male.
