Playing With / Hate at First Sight

Basic Trope: Two characters meet and instantly hate each other.
  • Straight: Princess Alice of Tropetopia and Princess Bobette of Tropia meet at a soiree and immediately begin politely bickering.
  • Exaggerated: Princess Alice has a habit of despising every single person she sees.
  • Downplayed: Princess Alice and Princess Bobette meet, but even though they don't completely hate each other, they are slightly annoyed with each other.
  • Justified:
    • Count Charlie has put them under a spell as part of his Evil Plan.
    • Alice and Bobette are both very shallow people who judge others based on their looks.
    • Alice has a sixth sense that tells her when someone's evil upon first glance.
    • Alice has been hearing about Bobette for a long time, eventually learning all the horrible things he has done to her kingdom, so naturally when she finally sees him she burns with loathing.
  • Inverted:
  • Subverted:
    • Princess Alice and Princess Bobette meet eyes and glare at each other as dramatic background music playsÖ then it turns out they were looking behind each other.
    • Alice and Bobette glare at each other with intense hatred, but upon getting to know each other a little bit better, they actually along pretty well.
    • Alice and Bobette have met before, but are both pretending to be different people to avoid being killed by Drake's assassins.
  • Double Subverted:
    • The two princesses are actually ignoring each other at the moment, since thatís the worst thing a princess could do to another princess.
    • Alice betrays Bobette and the two become sworn enemies and go right back to hating each other.
    • They have met before, and are willing to work together, but a flashback to their actual first meeting indicates they weren't originally overly fond of each other.
  • Parodied: ???
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted:
    • Princesses Alice and Bobette barely notice each other.
    • Princesses Alice and Bobette do not have any particularly strong feelings for each other when they first meet, but later they develop a rivalry that eventually gets out of control.
  • Enforced: "We need these two to hate each other over the course of one episode. "
  • Lampshaded: "Wow, they donít even know each other and already theyíre at each otherís throats."
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: The evil villain, watching from afar, immediately notices that Alice and Bobette take a dislike to each other from first sight and does everything he can to further fan the flames of hate.
  • Defied: Alice and Bobette take an immediate disliking to each other, but consider themselves both enlightened individuals and decide they won't let petty first impressions guide them. Through genuine effort, they become friends.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
