Bakura: Marik, I... I hate you. I hate you with all my heart. I hate you more than I've ever hated anybody. I hate you so much I can barely take it. In fact, I want to go on hating you for the rest of my life...
Marik: Oh, Bakura! I had no idea you felt that way about me! I-if it makes you feel any better, I hate you too. I think I hated you from the moment I first met you.
Bakura: In that case Marik, if we win this duel, let us go and make sweet hatred together. Just you and me. Hating each other. All night long.
Two foes who fight in close combat, constantly obsess over their next battle with one another, and spend all their time thinking about one another can't possibly be more than "just enemies" right? No Way!
Angel Beats!: After hearing Naoi's life story, Otonashi hugs him, despite the former having massacred his friends and having planned to hypnotize them into disappearing. Naoi then becomes Otonashi's fanboy.
Yuri and Kanade have a bit of this as well..
A half human half spider hybrid appears in the first OVA of Angel's Feather. When he appears he wraps Shou up in his web, caresses him, gets close to his face, sticks his finger in his mouth, and licks him before trying to murder him. Shou blushes in response to all of this.
In Axis Powers Hetalia, England and France have a long-running bitter rivalry and never pass up an opportunity to fight each other, which is translated into sexual tension in some fanfics. (It doesn't help that France almost succeeded in forcing England to marry him at one point, and also attempted to molest England when he was bedridden.)
For that matter, Greece/Turkey is very much seen as Foe Yay by fandom. To a degree, the same happens to Prussia/Hungary (mixed with some Unlucky Childhood Friend vibes from Prussia's part, apparently), Sweden/Denmark, England/China (despite the fandom taking them as Hong Kong's doting parents), and Turkey/Hungary.
And recently, Romania/Hungary.
Don't forget Russia/England! There's also a fair deal of England/Spain and Spain/Netherlands out there.
Most of the pairings involving fellow Psychopathic Manchild Russia, especially Russia/America, are usually depicted as a combination of this and Mind Game Ship, with a healthy dose of Stockholm Syndrome thrown in for pairings like Russia/Lithuania and Russia/Latvia. Hell, possibly the most functional and friendliest relationship Russia gets in fandom is with China which tends to have more of a "You haven't hurt me/don't hate me as much as the other nations have/do, so you're pretty much the only one I can confide in to some extent" vibe, and even then there's the Sino-Soviet split to consider...
Russia's sister Belarus also gets this treatment when paired up with America. It doesn't help when some fanarts / fanfictions portray them as enemies.
Prussia/Austria can be seen as Foe Yay. They fight each other and they can never get along but are pretty popular in Fandom.
How about Russia/Prussia? To wit, Prussia's terrified of him (to the extent of coughing up blood or losing four eyelashes whenever Russia's nearby) but they get a decent amount of popularity both in the West and Japan.
Pick one country, search for wars between him/her and other country(either Canon or Original Character) and tadah!!
And now Russia/America fans finally have a basis for their pairing. In the new Birz comic, in response to France's flattering, America accuses Russia of being the bad guy considering his good relations with Germany and his tradition of kissing people as a greeting. Russia then scoots over to America, flashes a Slasher Smile, and offers to make his gums bleed (therefore implying that he just offered to roughly kiss him). America doesn't get it. Later on, while England complains about America's provocative attitude, Russia says that he thinks it's one of his better points, before adding that provocative people are fun to snap in half.
The attraction that Slan, the female member of the Godhand, has to Guts from Berserk. Given that she's a sadistic demonic god, she basically derives a lot of pleasure from all the suffering she and the other God Hands can put him through. And it's not exactly helped by the fact that Slan is Too Kinky to Torture — the only thing Guts succeeds in doing by impaling and blowing off half of Slan's torso with his Arm Cannon during his battle with her in the Qliphoth is giving her an orgasm.
Not to mention the Guts/Griffith dynamic post-Eclipse.
For rival crime lords who have attempted to murder one another at least once, Mr. Chang and Ms. Balalaika sure do behave rather flirtatiously towards each other.
It makes perfect sense, really. It's just business. Or, as Solid Snake famously put it "War is no reason to end a friendship".
It should also be noted that in one as-yet-unanimated scene from the Manga, both of them explicitly state that the times they'd tried to kill one another are the most valued experiences that either of them posses.
Some people also see this between Rock and Balalaika, particularly during the Tokyo Arc.
Also, the scene where villainous Creepy Child Gretel disarms Eda in Episode 15 has some disturbing erotic overtones. It doesn't help that after the first grope (feeling for her gun holster, so it's justified), she gropes her again, this time lifting up part of tank top and grabs a nice handful of Eda's cleavage while her voice drops an octave.
Bleach: There is a very twisted straight example in the warped relationship between former 3rd Espada Nel Tu and 5th Espada Nnoitra Jiruga. Nel's constant attempts at saving Nnoitra, coupled with the fact that Nnoitra, no matter what he does, cannot seem to get her out of his head don't help.
Orihime has had quite a bit of subtextual Foe Yay shipping going on, mostly with Ulquiorra and Grimmjow, but there's even a little with Aizen too.
Busou Renkin: Papillon's obsession with Kazuki. Magnified by the fact that there's already a lot of subtext around Papillon with his flamboyant outfit including speedos and a distinctive butterfly mask.
Schneider and Wakabayashi from Captain Tsubasa, especially in the Road to 2002 TV series where Schneider has borderline feminine looks and there's a whole episode dedicated to showcase their thoughts on each other. It's like the animators and character designer were Genre Savvy enough to make them not only more bishonen than in manga canon...
Chrono Crusade has Aion/Chrono. In the manga, Aion is really Chrono's twin brother, unknown to him, and actually cares quite a bit for Chrono. The anime adaptation also included a scene where Aion holds Chrono's face in his hands and leans so close while speaking to him that their lips are almost touching. He also has a bit of In Love with Your Carnage for Chrono in both versions.
Code Geass: Foe Yay fans notice that Suzaku and Lelouch seem to have a... thing for each other. Sure, Lelouch has wanted to marry him off to Nunnally, but that guy has a Big Brother Instinct larger than he is, so he would want what he believes is truly the best candidate for his sister. It doesn't help that Lelouch treats both the whole 'Suzaku selling him to the Emperor' thing as well as the 'apparently selling him to Schneizel' thing later like Suzaku was cheating on him. I'm sure that whole thing Suzaku had with Euphemia really doesn't count, since R2 episode 21 has Suzaku seemingly getting over it and becoming Emperor Lelouch's Knight of Zero. With a really smug look on his face. After a month of being alone with Lelouch (C.C. was there too, but...)
R2 Episode 25 brought it to a whole new level. Maybe. After brandishing an awfully long sword, Suzaku gets to put it in Lelouch. And stays that way for a while. Killing him, yes, but let's forget that little detail.
Kallen and Suzaku should also be mentioned here, if only because of the her-being-naked when they met on an island in season one and in pseudo-bondage when she's captured by Britannia in R2. In the end Suzaku ends up becoming Zero, who Kallen was pretty much devoted to throughout most of the series. And also, during the later part of R2, Kallen and Lelouch.
About Kallen and Suzaku: during their last battle, she actually calls him anata. For those not in the know, this is the pronoun used between spouses, among others.
Don't forget Rakshata and Lloyd.
There's some Foe Yay between Schneizel and his younger brother Lelouch. For example, Schneizel refers to Lelouch as the man he loves and fears the most.
Spike and Vicious from Cowboy Bebop, especially Vicious who is obsessed with Spike to a decidedly unhealthy degree (not that anything involving Vicious ever approaches healthy).
Don't forget Sakura Kinomoto and Syaoran Li from Cardcaptor Sakura. You can just feel the enmity (and the attraction) between those two. And it's actually canon.
Darker Than Black: In the second season, Genma makes some creepy comments about Suou being cute, hits on Yoko, and also declares love for Hei.
In the DarrenShan manga, there is a lot of Foe Yay present between Steve and Darren. Steve's descent into evil was shown to pretty much have been caused by a misunderstanding that Darren didn't love him enough. It doesn't help that Steve had no feelings for Annie, but obviously was obsessed with and had a soft spot for Darren (which is shown when he spares Darren quite a few times.) And yes, although it is later revealed that they are actually brothers, this doesn't stop their interactions from having any less Foe Yay.
L also has some of this with Misa, the Second Kira. He tells her that he's a big fan of hers, though it's not certain whether he was lying about that, touches her butt while stealing her phone, ties her up "all fetishy" during her interrogation, and later sweet-talks her into helping him catch the Yotsuba Kira. When Misa kisses his cheek, L answers with, "I could actually fall for you." Again, though, this may have been a lie, according to Word Of God.
How did we get this far without commenting on Mello and Near's odd concern about each other? There is a whole Foe Yay aspect to it, but Mello is so overly concerned with everything Near does it comes across as stalkerish. When he talks about Mello, Near is likewise very complimenting and admiring, and toward the end says he and Mello should have been partners, and that it would've led to great things.
There's also Near/Light. From the moment Light first talks to Near he gets the feeling that he's talking to L. Near keeps calling and harassing Light at odd hours of the day and night and hanging up. Near has a habit of making some very unsettling facial expressions when thinking about what he's going to do with Light and in the manga there's how Near wanted to KEEP Light. Not to mention how when Near corners Light it's dripping with rape metaphors.
Also Beyond Birthday and L. Beyond is COMPLETLY obsessed with L to the point he dresses like him and copies his mannerisms and the way L delegates the case to Naomi Misora and given their mysteriousshared history it kind of comes off like he's hiding from his abusive ex-boyfriend. There is also implied UST between Naomi and Beyond, especially in the scene when she's working the case with him and she stops and stares at her wedding ring like she's having second thoughts about being engaged to Raye-the plain Betty to B's Veronica.
In D. Gray-Man, there is quite a bit of Foe Yay present between Allen and Tyki. Some notable scenes include Tyki "killing" Allen (which resembled a sort of "violation," with Tyki sticking his hand into Allen), the suggestive dialogue with Tyki telling Allen, "Don't be so cold, boy. An Exorcist made a Noah strip down to his underwear. Was that the first time you did it? Do you think it was destiny for it to be us?" and Tyki seeming miffed when Allen tells him that he'd done it to many people before. During their fight later, there's another Does This Remind You of Anything? moment with Tyki telling Allen, "This is giving me the thrills. I'll break you, one more time, with this hand!" Not to mention Road telling Lavi that Tyki likes Allen as much as she does (this being after it was established that she likes Allen enough to kiss him).
Which she does, by the way. And then spends most of the next chapter basically trying to cuddle with him. Face it, Allen is just a Noah magnet.
Some fans also see Allen's constant bickering with Kanda as this. In the recent chapter it seems like it will actually truly be this. Instead of just the simple bickering.
And in the most recent chapters, there are serious hints of this between the Millennium Earl and the 14th Noah. In chapter 196, when asked by Johnny why the Millennium Earl is so interested in taking Allen (or rather, the 14th) away with him, the Millennium Earl says:
Millennium Earl: "Why.... by his side. I want to be by the 14th's side."
And this is after the 14th has publicly expressed his clear intention to kill and replace the Millennium Earl.
Digimon Adventure has a good amount of this between Tai and Matt. Sure, they look like fistfights, but for simple brawls, they sure wind up on top of each other frequently. And then there's Matt's "nothing will ever come between us again" schpiel.
The real gold is 02, though, and not just because Ken starts out as an actual foe. To quote the Dub Text, "Seeing you squirm is so delicious." Not to mention the "And it isn't long now, pretty boy!" comment (ironic, since Ken's far more bishonen).
A bunch of yaoi fangirls on youtube found episode five of Savers when Masaru helped the injured Touma to be full of this; the background music really doesn't help matters. See here.
Elite Monster of the Week Vajramon flirted with Renamon plenty during their fight. And Renamon often puts flirtatious lines into her battle banter.
Daisuke Niwa and Satoshi Hiwatari from D.N.Angel. Daisuke initially transforms with a picture of Risa; Satoshi transforms with a picture of Daisuke. If that's not enough, the climactic arc begins with the two of them cast as romantic leads in a play, and ends with The Punishment pitted against The Power of Friendship. Friendship. Right.
As if that weren't enough, a recent chapter had Satoshi stating that he was unable to bring himself to hate Daisuke, despite the fact that he had resigned himself to hating everyone, simply because Daisuke is the way he is. Then he admitted 'that was the only thing that truly ever brought me joy'. It was suspiciously similar to a love confession in other manga, complete with a montage of all of their important moments together (along with a gigantic image of Daisuke smiling) that went on for two pages.
Dark and Krad are gonna be stuck with each other in a painting for the rest of eternity hating each other's guts-what do you think is going to happen? It doesn't help that they're so darn pretty.
Dark and Satoshi. "You would have been just my type if you were a girl" indeed. And not to mention that one scene where Satoshi was Disguised in Drag and Dark almost kissed him.
Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z certainly seems to have this level of obsession with the main character Goku, although it isn't shared.
Oh sure. People always talk about Vegeta's obsession with Goku, but which one of them had a visualization of the other completely nude?
In the Japanese version, when Vegeta is naked and taking a shower, he stares up at the showerhead and says Goku's name. That is all.
In the non-canonical movie, Vegeta hilariously shouts "Kakarotto Wa Ore No Mono Da!!" when Android 13 is beating his rival to death, and charges in to protect Goku. The context of this sentence is "Kakaroto is MY PREY hands off him", but "Ore No Mono Da" is usually used by jealous ex-boyfriends to say "belongs to me".
While we're on the subject of Goku and Vegeta, the ki bondage that Majin Vegeta used to restrain Goku during the Buu Saga should be mentioned.
Dragon Quest: Dai's Great Adventure (Dragon Quest: Dai No Daibouken) has the relationship between Marm/Maam and Hyunkel (and also Merle's love for Hyunkel, though it's technically after his Heel Face Turn). The obsession of Hadlar/Hadler with Aban/Ivan/Avan then Dai teems with subtext. To be fair, few men can admit with so much seriousness and class that another man's fighting technique excites them and that it's become their only reason to live. Fighting technique... right.
Shobu and Hakuoh in Duel Masters. Even within the context of the card game being Serious Business, Shobu's obsession with getting a chance to duel Hakuoh got... well.. pretty weird at times. At one point, Shobu decides to stop playing the game just because he thinks he lost his chance to go through the temple guardians and face Hakuoh, despite there still being tournaments, et cetera, out there. After Hakuoh's Heel Face Turn, it no longer qualifies, obviously. Given the satirical nature of the English dub, it's odd that this wasn't brought up more in-series.
Also, Shizuo/Vorona, and Namie/Mika. Erika claims to see some between Kadota and Chikage. Kadota is not amused.
Izaya also has moments like this with the girls he almost convinces to commit suicide. After one of them breaks into his hospital room and tries to kill him, he hugs her tightly while thanking her and telling her how much he loves her. Of course, it's plain creepy in context.
Kanra and Bakyura spend the majority of their time flaming each other on the chat boards, which Kanra jokes is because Bakyura's just totally Tsundere for her. Now add in the fact that Kanra is Izaya and Bakyura is Kida, and that they both know it...
Mikado and Aoba. As soon as Aoba is introduced in the novel, he instantly latches onto Mikado. Then you realize he's the leader of Blue Squares and simply wants to control Mikado. When it seems like he'll get his wish, Mikado retaliates by stabbing him with a ballpoint pen (thus earning his title as Memetic Badass and telling him that he stabbed him for involving Anri in his little game. Now the two are working together in the merged Dollars/Blue Squares group and Aoba seems to have taken Masomi's place in Mikado's life...almost completely. Add to the fact that Aoba admitting to Izaya that he's a masochist who is still looking for a special someone to be his sadist. Looks like he's found the person.
Izaya simply has this with everyone. Not just the ones mentioned above, but also Earthworm (who was torturing him), Namie, Mikado, Mikage's brother...just everyone.
Akabayashi fell in love with Sayaka, after she handed him his ass and had pierced his right eyeball with her katana, because he was impressed by her swordsmanship.
Eyeshield 21 has this strongest with Shin and Sena. Unlike most shonen rivals, their relationship is completely free of malice, but that just makes their preoccupation with eventually facing each other again seem more like two people in a long distance relationship. When Sena thinks Shin's completely outclassed him, he breaks down in tears at disappointing him.
Yuki and Kyo Sohma from Fruits Basket really should have been mentioned by now. Even though they're liable to kill each other if they were given the chance, due to their roles in the Dysfunction Junction of the Sohma family, they are posterboys for this phenomenon in the realm of fan fiction. One aspect of the curse renders them unable to hug girls, so who else will they take out their stress on? The whole "naked when you transform back" thing doesn't give the Yaoi fangirls fewer ideas, either.
Arguably parodied when Tohru attempts to imagine them getting along, picturing them gushing about each other's virtues by a lake with enough Bishie Sparkle to choke a diabetic.
In the English dub of the anime Kyo and Yuki start almost all of their fights by shouting let's do it! and clenching the fronts of each others' shirts. Kyo and Haru do this once in episode 10 as well.
Best shown when they fight and Yuki got close enough to kiss Kyou before kicking him away.
Kyo's *ahem* obsession with Yuki is typically hostile, but he expresses blatant worry at times when Yuki is vulnerable. When Yuki collapses from an asthma attack Kyo abates his fight with Haru to see if he's ok, and when Yuki is confronted by Akito Kyo can be seen watching from afar with a frown on his face. This shows that while Kyo's resentment and jealousy drive their relationship, he does care for Yuki's well-being deep down, or at least does not want to see Yuki hurt by anyone other than himself.
With constant fighting and banter between the two, Full Metal Alchemist is riddled with what is often seen as Foe Yay between Ed and Roy (despite their 15 year age gap and relatively-canon respective female love interests).
Another one is Ed and Envy, who both hate each other and beat each other up at every opportunity. And are related. They do have a few things in common, though.
And while this may be subjective, there always seems to be some level of subtext between them whenever they fight. It always seems like Envy's flirting with Ed whenever he talks to him.
In her battle with Roy, Lust combines flirting with trying to kill him, even as he keeps killing her. At one point, she comments "Didn't anyone tell you it's rude to put your hand between a woman's breasts"- at this time, Roy is setting her on fire (literally), and also literally has his hand inside of her chest, trying to destroy her Philosopher's Stone. As she dies, she makes a comment about kind of appreciating being killed by a man like him.
Also some Pride/Ed. Pride tries to take over Ed's body as a new container and gives him a lecture. Not to mention Edward defeats Pride by transmuting himself as a Philosopher's Stone and "forcing his way inside" Pride. Note that both Ed and Pride are having an Out-of-Clothes Experience for this scene. He's also kind enough to put his true form on his jacket.
Full Metal Panic!, the first season: Gauron's one-sided fixation on Sousuke is like this. In episode 24 while Gauron's trying to blow himself and Sousuke up (possibly in his screwed-up mind, as a lover's double suicide), he cries out, "I LOVE YOU, KASHIM!" About Gauron's line "I love you, Kashim!" — in Japanese, Gauron actually says "Aishiteru ze", which literally means "I love you" with all the romantic and sexual connotations attached to it.
Their last encounter during the third season doesn't improve matters. The way he talks you'd think Gauron is expressing disappointment that Sousuke has cheated on him with someone else (which, in his own screwed up way, is exactly what Gauron is implying — just not in an openly romantic fashion).
...Which is followed by Gauron's screwed-up version of consummating the relationship. In the dub, there's a hint that Gauron's crush might not be so one-sided after all, because the dialogue implies that trying to kill Gauron is just as important a reason for Sousuke to continue living as protecting Kaname.
Not to mention how, in the novels, Gauron actually comes straight out and tells Sousuke that he actually fantasized about killing Sousuke, dragging his corpse out of the AS and fucking it. Indeed, Gauron is not a man of subtlety.
Actually, every single interaction Gauron has with anyone can have some Foe Yay / rapist vibes to it. In the novels, Kaname finds out that "that creepy, disgusting man" stripped her naked for the experiments, which made her writhe in disgust (coupled with how, later, he calls her "Kana-chan," something only her best friend Kyoko calls her). And then there's his manhandling of Tessa, where he makes it clear that he'll do "X-Rated things unsuitable for minors to see to this cute little captain" if they don't obey. And after she heads off one of his attempts at attacking a submarine, he handcuffs her, pulls her by her hair, gets close to her face, and tells her with a rapeface that he's "really mad," but that he'll "punish her" instead of killing her. And then there's his way of subduing Dunnigan, which looks a lot like him asserting who's the one in charge by pseudo-raping him (c'mon, look◊at◊ this◊). And last but not least, it's canon that he's obsessively in love with Sousuke (ever since the latter was 12 years old), and actually literally wanted to buttrape him (he actually lamented about how he wasn't able to, and how he regrets it). Be sure to take note of the rapeface.
And then there's Police Woman and Bonta-kun. Seriously.
Some Lampshaded and teased Foe Yay is found between Tsubaki and Sousuke, with their rivalry and constant bickering. In the last episode of Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu, when Tsubaki thinks he's going to die, he even tells Sousuke that confessing to the girl he loves isn't as important to him as having one last fight between them. Matters aren't helped when, in one side story of the novels, Tsubaki makes a mistake and accidentally confesses that the one he loves is Sousuke. Afterwards, Kaname is shown to giggle and discuss who would be the submissive "receiver". She says both of them are.
Kurama, Gauron's partner in Amalgam, is shown to have started getting this way towards Sousuke as well. Although he initially shows annoyance and skepticism at Gauron's obsession and worship of Sousuke, when Kurama himself comes into confrontation with Sousuke, he starts to admire Sousuke more and more. After hearing that Sousuke massacred a bunch of his subordinates, he notes that "Mr. Iron was right. You are a very interesting boy."
Fushigi Yuugi has Nakago's (canonically one-sided) obsession with Tamahome. Complete with a scene where Nakago licks the blood from Tamahome's cheek (from a wound he inflicted) and tells him "You excite me... if not in the same way as a woman..."
Actually, the line in question is "... not in the same way as a woman, but more like a toy." But it still has that effect, so there.
Not to mention Nakago kissing Tamahome. Granted, he just did it to spite the love between Tamahome and Miaka, but even so. Watase must've had fun drawing that.
No need to strike that out... she's admitted how hot it is.
Please do not forget the episode of the Fushigi Yuugi parody Fushigi Akugi where Nakago receives a letter from a fan asking him if he's got a crush on Tamahome. He starts seducing Tamahome (who is immediately put off) and says that it must be done for the fans. Cut to Miaka watching the whole... ordeal from the doorway, saying she's "impressed" by Tamahome.
For a while there was also some Yui/Miaka Foe Yay before it turned back into Les Yay.
Fairy Tail: Somehow it's not as creepy as it ought to be to watch Jellal tell Erza he loves her while she screams about what a bastard he is as he tries to sacrifices her to revive the series' equivlent of Voldemort.
Kaze and Kumo in Final Fantasy: Unlimited. In fact, fangirls seem so obsessed with this pairing that this troper, much to his chagrin, struggled to find anyone interested in the actual continuation of the story when he offered to translate it.
Gankutsuou has some between the Count and Fernand.
In Get Backers, Akabane's major goal in life is get his kicks however he can — preferably with a very challenging murder involved somehow. The eponymous duo are his favorite opponents. He seems to go out of his way to work with (or against...) them, and there's plenty of Fan Fic pairing him with each (or both...). Akabane actually visited Ginji in the hospital once (causing Ginji to faint.)
There's also Ban and Shido, who aren't trying to kill each other anymore only because they have a mutual friend... actually, pairing Ban with anybody except Ginji would probably include at least a hint of Foe Yay.
There was/is a small epidemic of fic pairing Ban with Kazuki, probably because of that time Ban saw him naked, and because their interactions tend to flip between highly suspicious games of "I-know-something-you-don't-want-me-to," childish name-calling, and Teeth-Clenched Teamwork. Also, Kazuki states that he finds Ban very intriguing and early on, seems to be stalking him and Ginji for kicks.
One of the most pronounced and blaring Foe Yay in the series can be found within the Ax Crazy Fudou and Ban (though it's definitely very one-sided for Fudou). After Ban ripped off Fudou's arm, Fudou becomes completely obsessed with Ban. He even keeps his own severed, rotting arm with him to constantly remind himself of Ban - which made him feel "incredible chills rising up throughout his body." Pretty much every line he spouts to Ban is Foe Yay and very homoerotic. And when he isn't talking to Ban, every word coming from his mouth is normally about Ban. Some notably Foe Yay-tastic lines include: "COME, COME, COME, COME, your eyes, your flesh, blood, your screams, GIVE YOUR BODY TO ME! MEET MY DESIRES!" "Don't die yet, Mido - I'm not finished. You still need to quench my thirst - I'm not done. Let me enjoy myself." "What was my job again? My mind goes blank whenever I see you." "The only thing that can stop this shaking... is for me to slurp up your blood!" And when Ban starts worrying about his Heterosexual Life Partner Ginji, Fudou gets pissed. "What are you looking at?! Look at me, Takuma Fudou!!"
Though Fudou's death scene was kind of sweet... in a weird, warped way. He confesses to Ban that he's happiest when he's fighting him, and that he wishes that they could go on like this forever and ever. And Ban, on the other hand, ended up using up his Evil Eye so that Fudou could have a nice dream before he died, of them continuing to fight. Ban's expression when he gently closed Fudou's eyes was actually pretty emotional and filled with compassion.
Hijikata and Gintoki from Gintama, despite being complete rivals in everything from swordfighting to favorite foods, wind up getting the most yaoi doujinshi dedicated to their supposedly homo-homo adventures. The fact that Sunrise gleefully lampshades certain aspects of their relationship in the anime doesn't quite help, either. For example: At one point in episode 92 we see Gintoki holding a mock manga cover with him and Hijikata in a suggestive pose.
There's quite a decent following for Hijikata/Okita as well.
And Okita and Kagura have this in spades. She doesn't seem to like Okita much, but she can feel this kind of vibe coming off of him towards her, and they get along fairly well when they're not fighting.
Kamui got excited watching Gintoki fight Hosen and later declared Gintoki is his (prey) and that he won't allow anyone else to touch him.
Gundam 00's Graham Aker/Mr. Bushido and his obsession with the Gundams he fights is the very definition of this trope. He has even declared that he is in love with the Gundam.
Then there's Ribbons and Tieria in episode 8 of season two. That was a very nice dance scene right there. Ribbons's VA even admitted in an interview that he'd delivered certain lines in an "extremely erotic" manner.
This defines the relationship between Rally Vincent and the Big Bad Goldie Musou in Gunsmith Cats manga, even though it's decidedly one-sided, with Goldie's desire to possess Rally, body and soul is the main reason for their conflict. There's also some Foe Yay between Rally and the Jerk with a Heart of Gold rival/enemy/ally Bean Bandit.
To a lesser degree, also the relationship between Goldie and Rally's junior sidekick Misty Brown. In one scene Misty drugged senseless in her underwear, in the next Misty in leather bondage gear, crying. Cue Squick. And in the last book of the series the two end up in a consensual relationship! Seriously!
Guilty Crown's first bit of foe yay is rather unsettling in that the one going yay is a thirty-to-fourty year old Axe CrazyTorture Technician and the one he's yaying about is a seventeen-year-old school boy. Hihg-ranking GHQ member, Makoto Waltz Segai, actually shoots a sniper that's working for him in order to see young Shu use his powers. Two episodes later, he thinks back to that moment and says that he feels like he's falling in love. Considering the writers and the director, there may be more of this coming.
After Kamina's Death, Simon ends up becoming the object of his...obsession. There was one scene in particular, which had the two brawling in the prison wash room, wearing nothing but very tiny towels around their waists.
Ippo and Miyata in Hajime No Ippo. Lampshaded by Ippo's gymmates who tease him about being "gay for Miyata."
To a lesser degree, Ippo and Volg.
Many fanfic writers and fan artists see this in Alucard and Father Anderson's relationship in Hellsing. "My beloved enemy!" "I could have given you my heart..." "Someday, we'll meet in Hell." Plus Manly Tears... Also Major flirts with Integra quite a bit, even shutting up anyone who interrupts his conversation with her in volume 4. Not to mention: his desire to have her at his side while he defeats Alucard, because this is a show he has to behold next to a beautiful woman. Anderson and Integra in volume 6 as well, rescuing her and escorting her home. Also Schrodinger and Seras. Rip van Winkle and Alucard.
Also, Alucard and Major. They're both fascinated with each other and when they spoke to one other after 50 years, they spoke like they were old friends.
Especially Alucard and Rip Van Winkle. He practically rapes her. And the noises she makes, really, Double Entendre much?
Zorin Blitz and Seras. Zorin calls Seras pretty while mutilating her and appears to have a particular fascination with maiming her.
In Alucard's battle with Alhambra he hooks both of his thumbs into his mouth and he looks at him rather...wistfully. And then bites his neck.
High School D×D has a one-sided Foe Yay between Issei the protagonist, and Vali his rival, more on his side. Issei just doesn't want to do anything with him while Vali would like to defeat him. Heck, the latter even stated that he looked so uncool in front of Issei when Cao Cao used Samael, the dragon eater, to poison him.
While not foes in most arcs, Mion and her twin sister Shion from Higurashi count, especially in Meakashi-hen and Wataganashi-hen.
Touya Akira and his rival Shindou Hikaru spend 95% of both the manga and the anime Hikaru no Go obsessing about each other — hell, Hikaru even learns to play go because he wants Touya to be obsessed with him and not Sai. Naturally, the yaoi doujinshi and fanfics starring the two of them are legion.
Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni - Tomitake x Takano in Minagoroshi-hen could be considered as such. Also, don't forget Keiichi x Rena in Tsumihoroboshi-hen's rooftop battle scene, and maybe Onikakushi-hen as well. Umineko No Naku Koro Ni 's Bernkastel x Lambdadelta also caused some shippings of Takano x Rika.
Hisoka from Hunter × Hunter, especially in the manga, has been shown numerous times to get a hard on when he sees Gon and Killua (though one could argue that that happens most often with Gon). He calls them unripe fruit that he wants to "pick," wonders "why unripe fruit looks so delicious" and is even shown checking out their butts during the Greed Island Arc.
It's especially obvious in episode 5 of the 2011 remake anime where Hisoka becomes quite excited and blushes when fighting Gon.
Hisoka felt that Gon and Killua have great potential to become amazing fighters and Hisoka desires for them to become strong enough to offer him a truly satisfying duel, and he plans to kill them when they become "ripe". However, in order to allow them to reach this stage, he refuses to let them die, demanding that their death be through his hands alone and when Illumi was ready to kill Gon, he thinks that he can apologize to Hisoka later despite Hisoka having said that anyone who tries to kill Gon "will not be let off lightly." He even teamed up with the pair against Razor.
He also has some towards Kuroro. And towards Kurapika◊; During the fourth stage of the Hunter Exam, on Zevil Island, Hisoka refers to him as an "unripe fruit", however, his interest in him is minimal compared to his interest in Gon and Killua. At some instances he referred to Kurapika's blue eyes as "delicious" and Kurapika's scarlet eyes "exciting". He forms a loose alliance with Kurapika later, however, against the Phantom Troupe.
Perhaps Sesshoumaru is just after the sword (in a manner of speaking) but he and "Inu Yasha," who are brothers, tend to have quite a bit of Foe Yay happening between them — especially in the earlier parts of the series. Arguably, this continues into the third movie.
Some also consider Inuyasha and Kouga's relationship as Foe Yay, despite the fact that they mainly fight over Kagome.
Some tends to categorize their bickering over Kagome as a reason to see each other
Kikyo and Naraku. The mutual sexual tension between the two is evident.
In fact, near the end of the manga, Naraku admits that he really wishes Kikyo's love.
Also Jakotsu and his enemy Inuyasha, which is very one-sided on Jakotsu's part towards Inuyasha. He also flirts with Sesshoumaru and Miroku once.
Arguably Kagome and Naraku near the end of the series.
Half of Naraku's lines (especially during combat) could easily be misconstrued, as he has a tendency to nab the male Youkai main characters in his tentacles, then declare things line "And now you will become one with my flesh!".
In Part 2, Wham tries to ensure that Joseph will fight him when he gets stronger... by placing a poisoned wedding ring inside of his chest that only he has the antidote to. Of course, the rest of this series isn't exactly devoid of Foe Yay...
Part 1 ends with Dio acting upon his desire for Jonathan's body, and his plan to use it to "live gorgeously forever." The last bit of the scene is quite emotional, and suggests Dio cares for Jonathan beyond simply wanting to graft his severed head onto Jonathan's body. Had they but world enough, and time.
Part 3 ramps it up with Dio constantly caressing Jonathan Joestar's birthmark. And his Fabulous Gay Harem escapees, Polnareff and Kakyouin. And Abdul verbatim describing Dio as 'weirdly sexy.' Real kicker is when Dio goes into a fit of laughing glee that resembles nothing less than a prolonged evilgasm after using Grandpa Joseph as a mystic slurpee.
Jyu-Oh-Sei: Thor/Zagi, and to some extent Thor/Third as well.
Kara no Kyoukai: Lio Shirazumi not only lusts after Shiki, but seems to feel this way about Mikiya as well.
Karneval has Akari and Hirato's relationship, though it's mostly one-sided and amusing when they're not being serious.
Kemono No Souja Erin: Damiya becomes suddenly very touchy-feely with Erin, when it turns out that she can control the beast lords. During their first meeting one-on-one he grabs her hand, gets very close with her and compliments her eyes. Unsurprisingly, when they are interrupted by his aunt, she assumes that he tries to force himself on her. He also seems to be impressed, when Erin doesn’t buy his sweet talk and is overly fascinated by her ability, even comparing her to Je, when she rides on Lilan to rescue the queen.
Grell a male to female transsexual attempts to have this kind of relationship with Sebastian in her first appearance in the anime and in the manga. Sebastian appears torn between being sick or requesting a restraining order.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes: This is how some fans interpret the relationship between Reinhard and Yang, in spite of the fact that they meet all of once in the entire series. And then talk politics.
Ludwig and Julius/Julianna in Ludwig Kakumei. The relationship between Wilhelm and Lisette (the Red Riding Hood) is a more complex case.
Soubi with two of the main villains from Loveless One being Ritsu-sensei in which they actually were sort of in a relationship. (Ritsu took his ears) and Soubi was upset when Ritsu gave him to Semei. But currently they're both just sort of neutral to each other now. And, of course, Semei. With Soubi's obsession to obey the man's every word, despite the fact that he purposefully abandoned him. And replaced him with his real Beloved fighter Nisei. However, Soubi's obsession could be because of the way he was trained and nothing more.
Ritsuka and Semei. Though Semei doesn't see Ritsuka as his enemy, Ritsuka is kind of torn on what Semei is, exactly, due to what people have told him about him and many unanswered questions. Such as why he faked his death.
The next chapter turns it up to 11, with Tsukuyomi first hitting Setsuna with a Clothing Damage spell, followed by pinning her on the ground, and slowly and deliberately cutting off Setsuna'sSarashibra. After Fate calls a retreat, she says "Just looking back on this match will give me more than enough fuel for my fantasies." Take from that what you will.
And at the end of chapter 304 Tsukuyomi and Setsuna meet up again. Tsukuyomi powers up and tells Setsuna "This is so that I can savour you to the fullest, sempai! Now, allow me to feast upon you...to the very core!"
Fate has an odd penchant for literally getting in Negi's face at times and invading his personal space. And when he appeared to be quite entertained and had a smile on his face, in contrast with his normal stoic expression, during one of their fights together when he saw that Negi had gotten stronger: "Beautiful. That's what I'm looking for Negi-kun."
In chapter 290 Tsukuyomi suggests that she will fight Negi herself. And Fate, known for being quite the Stoic, actually gets pissed and firmly states to Tsukuyomi "His opponent shall be me." At the end of the chapter Fate thinks: "I am a tool. Nothing more than a mere doll that exists to bring my master's dream to fruition. But Tsukuyomi-san, there may indeed be some truth in what you say. Negi-kun...right now, you alone...to do battle with you is my one true desire!" (The caption at the end reads "Primal desire from one without a heart.")
It doesn't help that Tsukuyomi is treating (and referring) to Fate like a son who has just found out that he has a crush on someone. She even mentions his infatuation with Negi as the beginning of his own identity.
It doesn´t help that in the next chapter Negi conquered his inner demon by deciding that he wants to defeat and befriend Fate.
In chapter 293, Tsukuyomi has a typically weird and disturbing moment when she gets all gooey over Negi's new level in badass, and it resembles nothing so much as somebody catching themself fantasizing about a friend's significant other.
And in chapter 336, now that Fate has done a Heel Face Turn, the foe yay has travelled smoothly into ho yay territory. To explain: a group of some of the girls with crushes on Negi were talking amongst themselves, trying to convince one of their number to confess and complaining about how little they've seen of Negi lately. Thus Fate appears, telling them that Negi is very busy helping to rebuild a world and undertaking many burders to do so, and that none of them can be with him unless they can stand by him in these matters, too, as Fate does. And then? "Perhaps I should make it clear... he already belongs to me. Give up." The girls are horrified... particularly when Negi appears on the next page and Fate immediately sparks a conversation with him, taking him away from the others. The end-of-act comment even mentions it: 'The strongest love(?) rival appears!!'
The girls are also rather hilariously convinced that Fate is the biggest obstacle in their way to spending time with Negi. Correctly convinced. In the next chapter, when Evangeline lists the two people currently next to Negi, Asuna and Fate, when she talks to Chachamaru about spending more time (romantically) with Negi, she even mentions that Fate isn't the type to "do anything" and that Asuna is too much of an idiot to take advantage. She's basically treating both of them like love rivals.
Kurt Godel/Negi before Kurt switched over to the good side. One chapter has him pinning Negi to the ground with his leg and leaning over him with a smirk on his face while giving him a We Can Rule Together speech. Also, the following line.
Kurt: " I see... So this is the Gospel of Darkness... hahah. Negi-kun... the more I observe you, the more I want you for my own."
Chapter 290 gives us hints of Tsukuyomi/Fate. "Right now, you look awfully worth slicing to me" indeed.
If Mai and Mikoto are the poster children for Mai-HiMELes Yay, then surely Natsuki and Nao have to be their Foe Yay counterparts. Seeing the two of them tied up together (but not to each other) and singing karaoke on stage in goofy costumes together may have something to do with the prevalence of Natsuki/Nao fics on certain sites (which shall not be named).
There is a Ship Tease moment on one of the Mai-Otome Drama Tracks when Nao joins Natsuki in the shower and confesses that she's only been so harsh and insulting towards Natsuki in order to hide her real feelings. Whether or not she was just lying to gain information is up to debate.
Natsuki has plenty of this with Mai in the Mai-HiME manga. For all the fighting she and Mai do over their "key" (male main character Yuuichi Tate), Natsuki spends a lot of time obsessing over making fun of Mai's figure.
In Mao-chan, it's not even subtext—the supposed-to-be-a-villain Yuriko is very much in love with her diminutive enemy Mao, and doesn't even really want to be a villain (leaving her second-in-command to do all the work.) Mao admires Yuriko too, (probably not that way, but as a Cool Big Sis), although it should be noted that Mao doesn't know that Yuriko is one of the aliens she's fighting.
MÄR has Alviss and the Phantom, which also overlaps with Ho Yay, as the Phantom even attempts to kiss him twice. Alviss spends so much time hating Phantom that during the ghost chess arc he accepts to live together with Phantom for eternity. To be fair, it was more or less mind control.
Tsubaki plants a Take That Kiss on Yukiteru when she thinks she's defeated him and Yuno, complete with a spit trail. Yuno doesn't react well to this.
Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ. Haman Karn develops an obsession with protagonist Judau Ashta after initially mistaking his Newtype resonance for that of Char Aznable, and consequently makes several advances towards him in the numerous encounters they have over the course of the series. The issue regarding Judau's age has led some to believe that Haman's history with Char may have had an influence on her preferences.
Suk/Johan is canon for Monster (although in a very... terrifying way). One could make a good case for everyone in the series being in love with Johan without anyone batting an eyelid, and Lunge/Tenma is especially pronounced, not surprising due to the similarities between them and Les Misérables.
The "everyone loves Johan" aspect is memorably affectionately sent up by this.
Tenma/Johan too. What with Johan addressing a letter to Tenma with "My dear Dr. Tenma", and calling him "my favorite doctor"...He basically becomes obsessed with Tenma after he saves his life, and even when he is presented with the chance to kill Tenma, he tells Tenma that he could never kill the man who saved his life.
Muhyo and Enchu, which is arguably halfway canon now, what with Enchu's little love confession before getting shut away forever.
Nabari No Ou: Miharu and Yoite start out like this, but are really, really bad at acting like foes, and it quickly blossoms into full-fledged Ho Yay, especially after Miharu's Face Heel Turn. There's some minor Foe Yay between Kumohira and Yukimi too. Not to mention the rather creepy scene where Hattori is practically hitting on Yoite - "You really are diligent and smart... as well as beautiful."
That's not even subtext. Kaworu tells Shinji that he loves him.
And let's not forget the sleepover.
They're more Ho Yay in the anime and Foe Yay in the manga, however. At least, on Kaworu's side.
Asuka/Rei could be argued as an example as well, given Asuka's tendency to express romantic interest through outright hostility.
In Nightmare Inspector, there's a good deal of Foe Yay between Tsukishiro and Azusa. Even before they meet, Tsukishiro hears about Azusa and comments that he'd like to meet him, as he sounds much more interesting than Hiruko. Then in the last few chapters, they finally meet. Azusa threatens to eat Tsukishiro in order to aquire all the nightmares he's eaten. Tsukishiro responds to this by blushing, and giving Azusa a rather flirtatious-seeming look. Later on, he gets trapped in a void in the Delirium, which makes his feelings materialize in a sort of hallucination. In said delusion, he's being stabbed and ripped apart by Azusa, and he more or less admits that he was turned on by the earlier threats.
Noir: Lady Silvana, aka the Intoccabile, gives Mireille an excessively long (and open-mouthed) Kiss of Death. And beforehand, when they were children, she was very obsessed with Mireille, traumatizing her for life. Her behavior did not seem to be so much of an obsession with Mireille herself, as much as an obsession with domination and control. The kiss seemed to be more about putting fear into Mireille by confusing her and establishing dominance.
In pretty much any 'spiritual contract' series, you're guaranteed some sparks between the human and the thing at the end of the leash. In Nora, however, the hatred that the titular hellhound holds for Kazuma, combined with Kazuma's constant smirking and remarks of "Interesting..." regarding Nora, make for ungodly amounts of slashiness even at their first meeting.
Tabool in Now and Then, Here and There is unhealthily obsessed with garnering any attention whatsoever from his best-friend-turned-rival, Nabuca, to the point that he gets jealous of a freaking six-year-old. Long story short: Nabuca continues to reject Tabool and it does not end well.
Although it was very shortly before she got Put on a Bus, and the author is prone to launch Air To Sea Missiles, the battle between Usopp and Perona on One Piece seemed this way, at least from her side. Turning giant and giving him a skirt shot... phasing through his crotch... is there any other way to take that?
Another almost Foe-Yay pairing in One Piece is Zoro and Sanji, who despite being on the same sides seem to loathe each other... yet while Sanji is a complete womanizer, he will drop his fawning over the women in a heartbeat to fight with Zoro, if he makes the tiniest of statements. The filler episodes tend to make fun of this pairing, giving fans two instances in which Sanji and Zoro are almost forced to kiss (once when they were sleeping next to each other, and Sanji had a dream about Nami, and the other when they were hit with Foxy's slow beam and almost drifted together). Despite all their bickering, it still manages to be the most popular pairing in the fandom (at least volume wise).
Zoro has one with Tashigi, his self-declared rival from the marines. After a short fight he spares her (to her fury), because she reminds him of a childhood rival (with whom Zoro also seemed to have a foe yay).
Nami and Kalifa were very Foe Yay-ish. At one point, Nami admires how smooth Kalifa's skin must be and how she would want her to be her own Sexy Secretary. Lampshaded when she reminds herself that she isn't a Dirty Old Man.
Eustass Kid and Trafalgar Law, despite being introduced relatively late to One Piece fandom, have quickly become one of the most popular pairings of the Supernovas due in part to their position as reluctant and snarky Strange Bedfellows.
And now we apparently have Crocodile and Doflamingo, with the latter saying that Crocodile rejecting an offer to work together and siding with the pirates is making him jealous before the two start to fight. Not much of a surprise, given that Crocodile is a certified Magnificent Bastard while Doflamingo is being slowly built up as being someone quite capable of just as much, if not more, Magnificent Bastardry.
Alvida to Luffy, since Luffy was the first man to ever hit her, and she likes strong man; it's more noticeable in the manga.
This scene from the anime features Lotti getting close to Oz, touching and licking his face and then putting his face in her boobs. She initiates the Marshmallow Hellin the manga too. In the manga she also calls him "cute". Also, this scene. And this scene where she gets close to Oz's face and intertwines her fingers with his. She also generally disregards his personal space.
In Peacemaker Kurogane (especially in the manga), Suzu becomes obsessed with Tetsunosuke, constantly having his every action monitored. He becomes jealous and scared when Ryoma decides to take Tetsunosuke away with him, taking drastic action to kill Ryoma and frame Tetsunosuke for it, so that Tetsunosuke won't be able to get away from him. Suzu pretty much even comes out and says, after another character asks him why he hates and obsesses over Tetsunosuke so much, that "this isn't hate — it's love."
Peach Girl: Momo and Sae have this for a bit before they become close friends. Then it turns into Les Yay.
Phi Brain Kami No Puzzle gives us Rook and Kaito. The two were childhood friends. Unfortunately, Rook was taken away as a child and eventually became a Tyke Bomb who determined that Kaito was the perfect candidate for Phi Brain, a program filled with Death Trap puzzles, the ultimate goal of which is to create the perfect puzzle solver. It Makes Sense in Context. As Kaito solves puzzles, Rook gushes over how beautiful he is when doing so. He even concocts a plan to convince Kaito that the best thing to do is to leave his True Companions behind and join him. It doesn't work. He gets very angry when Kaito's Love Interest, Nonoha, displays how close she and Kaito are. When Kaito finally makes it clear that he will never join POG, the conglomerate Rook works for, Rook goes into a mad rage, screaming that Kaito is his and that he has to join him. Rook's personal Dragon needs to hold him back from making a grab at Kaito himself.
Between Gammon and Elena as well.
In Please Save My Earth Gyokuran and Shion are friends but also enemies. Shion is fixated on outdoing Gyokuran in everything he pursues to the point of hurting innocents in his plans, Gyokuran is always fixated on Shion to a lesser degree as well. The animosity outweighs the friendship which only comes through as one-sided from Gyokuran or in dire situations.
Prince of Tennis. Holy mother of God, there's as much Foe Yay subtext as Ho Yay in it. Not convinced yet? Just watch the extremely Foe Yay-tastic Tezuka vs. Atobe, the Tezuka vs. Fuji and Tachibana vs. Chitose matches in the anime (and both the first and the third matches' original renditions in the manga), both of them full of subtext. And if we go for teammates who are also rivals, aside of Tezuka and Fuji, look no further than Kaidoh and Momoshiro...
Ranma and Ryoga from Ranma 1/2. It's even more convenient when Ranma has a female form which he (she?) often uses to embarrass Ryoga (and the latter always falls for it.)
In the manga, after Ranma defeats Ryoga in a particularly fierce battle, he carries the unconscious Ryoga off the battlefield. Ryoga slumped in Ranma's arms is practically straight off a romance novel cover.
It' even more blatant in the anime, where Ryoga saves female-Ranma from a seemingly invincible snow golem, cradling her in his arms as if she were a real girl.
Ruthlessly parodied and sunk by the author in the "Fishing Rod of Love" story. Ryoga is depicted as being absolutely disgusted when he accidentally hits Ranma with the titular Love Potion, and even carries him/her away into the woods with the intent of killing the Gender Bender and burying him/her so he won't have to put up with it any more. When he initially can't bring himself to kill someone so brainwashed that they're perfectly willing to die if that's what he wants, Ranma proceeds to kiss him... and Ryoga's restraint flies out the window and he starts trying to kill Ranma. Finally, at the episode's end, Ranma gets freed from the Love Potion and Ryoga accidentally Glomps him while trying to hug Akane... Ranma promptly goes ballistic and beats Ryoga to a pulp in horror and disgust.
Takahashi would have done a better job sinking that ship if she hadn't set up a world that pretty much ran on Belligerent Sexual Tension. As far as Takahashi-verse characters go, the more you hit 'em the more you love 'em.
In episode 87 when Ryoga falls on top of Ranma in the path of an oncoming train Ranma tries to get Ryoga off of him and all the movement makes it look like they're having sex. He also worries about Ryoga when he gets injured and carries him.
And that's not even getting into the numerous minor male villains that fall for Akane.
Revolutionary Girl Utena: Utena and Akio. They have sex for one and make out for two and Akio wants her to be his princess but is the villain of the work.
Rosario+Vampire: Hitomi constantly rants about how beautiful Moka is, while trying to kill her or turn her to stone.
There's also Tsukune's interactions with Hokuto, even after he was revealed to be Evil All Along.
Saito and Kenshin, Aoshi and Kenshin, or Saito and Sanosuke of Rurouni Kenshin.
Saint Seiya gave us the glorious pairing that is Gemini Kanon and Wyvern Rhadamanthys. The Only One Allowed to Defeat You, indeed. This is probably the most well-known Foe Yay pairing-in which the two parties are on opposite sides-in the fanon, as all the other Foe Yay pairings tend to be Ho Yay where the characters just don't like each other that much.
Actually the main pairing of Foe Yay in Saint Seiya is the main character, Pegasus Seiya and Hades. All started with Seiya's compliment in the middle of battle What are those beautiful eyes! I can't believe these eyes belong to feared Hades, the King of Underworld. They have the depth of a very deep lake. Oh boy... and also to add more seasoning to the Foe Yay. Stoic Hades snapped when he just realized he know Seiya since LOOOOOOOONG time ago, and enraged Seiya dared to reincarnate himself again and again. The irony is when you should take this statement as The Only One Allowed to Defeat You... Hades seems to believe Seiya did this not to protect Athena and human race but to come and wound him. He made it sounds like Seiya or Pegasus saints was obsessed of him after he wound Hades once in the age of myth.One would wonder what Kurumada was thinking, as epic as battle between The Hero and Big Bad he wanted to create here... because when it suppose to be arch enemy since long time ago, with Seiya's compliment it sounds like they are obsessed with each other.
Teshirogi, who draws Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas, seems to take this to consideration a bit too much. Between Alone/Hades and Pegasus Tenma, taken Up to Eleven past chapter 212 (because if chapter 214 isn't a confession, what is?)
InSamurai Seven, Ukyo had a fetish for Kirara, who aids the samurai who oppose him. Even though they are enemies, he still wants her in his harem.
Hisa and Mihoko of Saki. Seems like Hisa left quite a large impression on Mihoko after the latter's powers proved quite ineffective against the former.
Mihoko: Maybe she'll tell me my right eye is pretty once again.
Christopher Armalite and Shannon Casull from Scrapped Princess, at least in the novels. In the volume Song of the Forgiven, Christopher becomes inordinately obsessed with Shannon after losing to him in combat. It bothers him so much that he has an entire internal monologue about the nature of his feelings - specifically, whether they're love or hate. The anime omitted this scene.
It's a joke among sCRYed fans that Kazuma and Ryuho really do pound on each other for this reason, since neither seems to have any way to express their respect for each other.
Shakugan no Shana gives us some nice moments between Yuji and Hecate, especially when he was filling her with his existence. It doesn't help in Season 2 that Yuji becomes close to a fragment of her existence posing as a human, and that said fragment has an obvious crush on him.
Tao Ren/Tao Lian/Tao Len of Shaman King spends the first arc of the series obsessing over the protagonist Asakura Yoh and Yoh's spirit partner Amidamaru, furious that he Can't Catch Up with them. Yoh spends this same arc greeting Ren cheerfully whenever they cross paths. When Ren finally calms down a bit and becomes Yoh's Lancer, they arguably act more like an old married couple than Yoh and his arranged fiance.
Shin Angyo Onshi: Aji Tae's attitudes towards Munsu come across as advances sometimes.
Lina in Slayers lampshades this with Gourry's rival in the first season, Zanguluz.
Also, Lina herself and Martina in the second season, particularly in episode 16, in which they compete in a tennis-like game...did we mention that Martina is confirmed to be named after a famous lesbian tennis player?
Filia and Xellos — he teased her and she tried to punch or blast him all the time, and there's enough of Belligerent Sexual Tension to make AMVs about it only mildly overlapping. She was visibly surprised at the Mazoku's protective gestures, though.
In one episode of Sonic X, during a fighting tournament, Rouge fights Tails and beats him... by kissing him. A few episodes earlier, she essentially flirts with Knuckles. Worse yet, the latter relationship is canon.
Rouge flirts and in one option kisses Tails again in Sonic Battle.
Soul Eater is absolutely filled with Foe Yay. A popular yaoi pairing is Black Star and Kid, who begin as rivals. Medusa openly admitted to loving Stein, and Stein has rather obsessively hallucinated about her. Justin and Giriko was a popular pairing even before it turned out Justin and Giriko are on the same side, and now Justin has been openly getting Giriko drunk (though he IS an alcoholic...) and flirting. Shinigami-sama and Asura has their own fanbase, but I do NOT want to think about it. Now we have Memetic Molester Noah, who had managed to get labelled such the chapter he was introduced. He is commonly paired with Liz, who he had canonically complemented as almost beautiful enough to collect on sheer looks and knows would do anything for Kid or Patti, and Kid, who he kidnapped. CHAPTER 63 does not help anything.
Gopher/Kid is another squicky possibility. Mutual hatred, one-sided violence due to Kid being chained up. Kid just hangs there and largely ignores both the insults and the beatings, but Gopher sure is putting a lot of effort into hating the shinigami...
In parody series The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan, Ryoko rebuilds herself as "Achakura" and lives with Yuki. Every single one of their scenes together are beyond adorable.
Strangely enough, somewhere in This Wiki, somebody mentioned a Kyon/Fujiwara ship. Even without any Ship Tease in the few novels where Fujiwara is mentioned.
Good lord, do Akagi and Uozumi have this in Slam Dunk. It's been mentioned that Uozumi talks about defeating Akagi everyday and from what we've seen, this is probably not an exaggeration. He almost instantly took an interest in Akagi when he first saw him, cheered him on during the Kainan game, and his rivalry with him is his main motivation for improving. Even after quitting basketball he still travels all the way to Hiroshima just to see Akagi play and even gives him advice in the middle of a game. On Akagi's side he considers Uozumi the better player (despite what everyone else says) and has a great deal of respect for him. Their bromance is even mocked at times, such as when they hug and cry on each other's shoulder, only to show that they're both far too ugly for this to be anything but fan disservice.
Ayeka and Ryoko from Tenchi Muyo! Depending on which Alternate Continuity you choose, they are old childhood acquaintances or mortal enemies, but they always fight — and not just over Tenchi's affections. In at least one alternate world glimpsed during an Alternate Universe episode of the television series, though, they are clearly in a relationship with each other. Though outside forces were involved.
Accelerator towards Touma as well. Comments such as "You're really the best." and "Interesting, interesting" were thrown around. And then afterward Accel seems to develop a inferiority complex in regards to Touma, and grudgingly looks up to him as a hero.
Fiamma and Touma as well. Fiamma calls Touma the main dish, and part of his plan involves literally taking a part of Touma inside of himself.
Togainu No Chi: Shiki x Akira. Shiki seems to think everyone except Akira is just "trash", has said that Akira has intriguing eyes, and generally disregards his personal space when he's trying to kill/fight him. Bonus in that it's a canon pairing in the game.
Trigun: Vash and his Evil Twin Knives. Also, in the magazine version of the Tri Max manga, Legato telling Vash that he is beautiful. After beating him to a bloody pulp. Also, Legato is very obsessed with Knives and is so jealous of Vash (or rather, of Knives's twisted love for Vash) and obsessed with killing him that Vash is the only one who manages to break his composure.
Umineko No Naku Koro Ni: Beatrice and Battler. This troper swears to God, in the anime at least, nearly all their interaction comes off as that of an off-kilter married couple who thinks that vicious arguments are the best kind of foreplay.
Played with in Episode 4.
"The Stakes' Valentine's Day" takes this even further and plays it for laughs.
Don't forget the sequel Beatrice's White Day.
Canon as of EP 6.
As well as Bernkastel x Lambadadelta.
Canon, and they were on the same side all along.
And now we have people shipping Erika x Battler.
She didfantasize about marrying him... and making him surrender to her...
What episode was that in?
Episode 6. And her fantasy was about five minutes from becoming reality. Beatrice's Big Damn Heroes moment is well-timed.
In episode 10 of Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitteiru a villainous Elegant Gothic Lolita named Ashley calls her enemy Shusei "handsome", says that he's 'just her type', and takes pleasure in torturing him via a voodoo doll all the while saying he should give up and tell her what she wants to know because she doesn't want to hurt him. She then puts him to sleep and whispers in his ear "I knew you'd make a beautiful corpse. You're part of my collection now. You'll never wake up again" while caressing his face and chest.
Awkwardly sluggish Katayama and vicious bully Tsumura in Uzumaki when they morph into giant snails and are later isolated in a cage. Considering they are the only two giant snails in town (at the moment) and snails are hermaphrodites.... The Foe Yay is snipped from The Movie, which wastes Tsumura's actor's good looks, but it's probably presumed that if you're watching the movie you've read the manga.
In Vampire Knight, Zero Kiryuu and Kaname Kuran display this trope very well, what with their interactions. Zero occasionally having to drink from him doesn't help (and, I'm sure, feeds the fangirls).
Vassalord: Barry to Rayflo. And only Barry to Rayflo. Not the other way around.
Nitori and Doi from Wandering Son. It's implied that Doi has some sort of attraction to Nitori, and the two are on less-than-friendly terms. Takatsuki and Chiba turned into this early on, but have since gone back to being friends.
From Witchblade, Reiji Takayama and Wadou. Much more true on Wadou's end, but both men have worked their asses off outsmarting each other (Takayama winning almost all of the time), and Wadou looks like he's in the throes of orgasm when he finally appears to have pwned Takayama royally at one point. It later comes back to haunt him in a totally humiliating fashion, but it WAS Foe Yay incarnate while it lasted.
In the Seinen manga Wolf Guy Wolfen Crest, there's the Big Bad Haguro Dou, who is the young son of a powerful Yakuza boss, and who becomes completely and crazily obsessed with protagonist (and werewolf) Inugami. He initially doesn't care about or even think twice about Inugami... until he pushes Inugami too far. Which results in Inugami showing him his true form and scaring the shit out of Haguro. Haguro goes insane from it, and obsesses and stalks Inugami after that, even cutting himself all over his arm and carving the word "Inu" onto his hand. And yes, it's creepy to the point of being something of a sexual obsession as well - Haguro has been shown after that to, while having sex with his (equally crazy) girlfriend Ryuuko (who, by the way, also lusts after Inugami and thinks about him while having sex with Haguro), think only about Inugami, and pretty much screams his name while imagining him. Later, Haguro even ends up raping his male subordinate to death, while again thinking of Inugami. And after Inugami decides he's had enough of this shit and tries to move away, Haguro, being the stalker he is, tries desperately to do stuff to piss Inugami off so that he'll come back.
Haguro is damn near the epitome of this trope. Having violent sex with his girlfriend Ryuuko and having an orgasm while screaming Inugami's name? Buttraping the hell out of his male subordinate while, again, thinking about Inugami and how this is a punishment for him? Brutally raping Aoshika while recording it so that Inugami can see, practically talking to the camera (and, therefore, to Inugami) through the entire thing so that Inugami will come back to him? The only thing that's missing is for Haguro to actually try to rape Inugami himself, and pretty sure he's working on that one as well.
Er, I think Haguro pretty much reached that epitome recently when he sliced off some of Inugami's fingers, ATE THEM, and then got a fucking boner off of it.
The blood-licking also appears in X1999 between Fuuma and Kamui. Of course, it's CLAMP...
And if you apply Rival Yay, you've gotta believe there's something going on between Yugi and Kaiba in Yu-Gi-Oh!... As the abridged series put it:
Goon: But do we really have to watch him taking a shower every day? Seems a little unnecessary.
Kaiba: I must always be one step ahead.
It's really overt in Season Zero. Kaiba stalks Yugi for an entire episode because he suspects someone else is trying to defeat Yugi in a card game. (He interrupts said card game when it looks like Yugi's about to lose, beats the other duelists, and before parting reminds Yugi that he is The Only One Allowed to Defeat You). And in a later episode, Yugi gets hit by a car owned by Kaiba corp. He's fine (...somehow), but the person inside the car needs to be hospitalized. Yugi goes with said person to the hospital, where Kaiba eventually shows up. Upon seeing Yugi and realizing he was the one who caused the accident, Kaiba remarks thusly:
Looks like we really are connected by the thread of destiny. Try to cut it, but it cannot be broken... A thread that entangles us.
Episode 35 of the abridged series takes aim at this:
Joey: I hate you, Kaiba. Kaiba: And I despise you, Wheeler. [fangirl interpretation: they must be in wuv!]
Actually, those two have a LOT of Foe Yay. Examples: The infamous line from the prelude to their first duel ("Nice grip. Let me show you mine."). Joey's...interesting dream immediately following said duel. The ENDLESS slightly (ahem...very...) insulting pet names. ("Mutt," anyone?). The whole "master-pet relationship" thing. There be a lot of Foe Yay in thar hills.
Kaiba gets this a lot from just about everyone. His duel with Ishizu is a rare male/female example, with her insitence on bludgeoning him until he accepts his past lives looking like more than just a casual interest to a fair number of fans.
For all that it makes fun of Yaoi Fangirls, there's Joey/Kaiba foe yay in Yu Gi Oh The Abridged Series as well. ("Oh, Kaiba, your dragon is so big...!") And that's not even mentioning Marik and Bakura, who are the page quote for Foe Yay/Anime right now and are only really subtextual to the extent that Marik keeps holding onto the last remaining shards of his Transparent Closet.
YuYu Hakusho is slathered in Foe Yay, most of it being between Yusuke and the Big Bad he has to fight for that arc. Both Genkai (in Japanese) and Itsuki (in the US dub), being the canonical love interests (former in Genkai's case), make wry commentary about the Subtext Yusuke has with Younger Toguro and Sensui, respectively. Also of note is the Karasu/Kurama fight. Whooboy. "I love you; therefore I will kill you"? Yeah, quality Foe Yay right there.
Plus Karasu spends the last parts of the Dark Tournament coming on to Kurama; "Your hair is a bit...damaged Kurama...Human bodies are so frail...I know you fear what my touch could do to you...and yet maybe you also want to know it." All this while stroking his hair from behind.
Zero No Tsukaima: In the fourth season's OP, Louise gets licked on her face by a new, evil purple-haired girl named Janette and the girl hugs Louise close to her with a blushing Louise struggling to get away. And in episode two Janette tricks Louise by pretending to be a plebeian, gets close to her face, and licks her again. She also touches her face and says that if things had worked out different they could have been friends. She also calls Louise "cute and innocent".
Also, Wardes tries to marry Louise, and in episode 2 of the fourth season you get the feeling that Joseph was about to rape Louise for a second when he said she was gonna "lose her honor" then you see his robe lowering and how he kneels in front of her while she's tied up on the ground and touches her face...
And then there's Season 4, Episode 6, when Henrietta gropes Louise's super flat chest. While they are fighting over Saito. In the middle of a hot spring, buck naked.
Ayanami and Teito from 07-Ghost. It's especially evident in the minidrama "Escape," where Ayanami is featured crossing paths with Teito and Frau, "making a serious love call" (as Frau jealously puts it), and declaring how he and Teito "cannot live without the other" after a process of quiz show fanfare.
Zettai Karen Children: Kyousuke and Minamoto occasionally have a bit of this going on - Kyousuke might be after Kaoru, but he does seem to love playing with Minamoto.
I think we can safely declare Minamoto/Kyosuke canon.
Also wonderfully lampshaded by Patty in this Comic.
