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:
  • 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. "
