* Black Mage and Fighter of ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater''. Fighter thinks BM just likes to kid around, even when BM stabs him in the head. (Fighter is dumb and gullible and more or less indestructible, so Black Mage's stabbing attempts either deal no damage at all anyway, or on the rare occasions they do, the resulting brain damage once even made Fighter ''smarter''! Either way, he never seems to take offense.) Also, by the time of the epilogue, they're still together as adventuring partners despite the fact that the rest of the team has since broken up. Not like Black Mage is happy about this...
-->'''Fighter:''' Black Mage and I are bestest buddies!
* Enigma and all seven of his brothers in ''Webcomic/DragonTails''. Despite threatening death to any who touch his lake and using memories of his brothers' past idiocy to fuel his rage-filled fighting style, Enigma will do pretty much anything to protect his family, risking his own life and limb to ensure their safety. There's also Lemuel and Norman. Norman often schemes to use Lemuel as a disposable pawn in his quest to conquer the world, or as a bodyguard or slave. Lemuel...has a pet food dish labelled "Normie".
* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'':
** Faye and Dora in [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=708# this strip]]. Also many others, but in this one Raven describes it: "Sometimes I can't tell if you guys are friends or if you hate each other."
** At Marten's dad's wedding, his mother meets an old friend and they trade [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2391 really nasty barbs]]. Claire looks a bit shocked, but Marten just comments that his own taste in friends (ie Faye and Dora) suddenly makes sense.
* Pretty much everyone in ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'' insults everyone else constantly and to their faces, as Davan explains [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp11122006.shtml here]]. Sometimes it's hard to see the difference between the way they treat their friends and the way they treat people they'd be happier without, even for the characters. There's more than one genuine hatred mistaken for affection relationship. Kharisma and Mike especially are prone to being on the unliked end of them. Then again, all the core cast are in vitriolic relationships, so it's hard to blame them for the mistake.
-->'''[[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp08062009.shtml PeeJee]]:''' Sometimes I hate you so much I worry it might be love.\\
'''Davan:''' Talk like that is why people [[ShipTease speculate about us]], y'know.
** Worth pointing out as well, though [=PeeJee=], Davan and Aubrey collectively torment, insult and play with each others emotions or lack there of to a degree, all three would literally rip through hell to get at someone who'd wronged the other considering even Davan forgives Eva before the noose is loosened around her neck by any of his friends short of Jason.
* Largo and Piro from ''Webcomic/MegaTokyo'' are total opposites in many ways, with Piro spending a lot of time making snarky comments about his friend's loose sanity and total lack of social skills. For his part Largo seems to think of Piro as a weak hearted, easily manipulated fool who is easy prey for the forces of evil (They're both right). This makes the moments of true friendship they show all the sweeter.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'':
** Roy Greenhilt and Elan. Elan seems to be cheerfully oblivious to... well, a LOT of things, actually, but ''especially'' to how annoying Roy finds him. Keep in mind, however, that Roy still does think of Elan as a friend and comrade -- just an incredibly annoying one. At least from [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0162.html strip 162]] onwards. Prior to that he saw Elan [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0153.html less as a member of the team, and more as an obstacle they overcame on a regular basis]].
** Vaarsuvius and Belkar are a pretty good example of the less benign version. They constantly attack, insult, sic animals on, and berate each other, but both have saved the other at least once, and have risked themselves for the other. And then there was the [[KissingUnderTheInfluence event...]].
* Tony and all his friends in ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' but especially Zeno. While Zeno considers Tony his best friend, this hasn't stopped Tony from delighting in Zeno's [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Charby_the_Vampirate/4782813/ rejection and humiliation]]. Menu is a major offender here too.
* Similar to the Black Mage/Fighter example is that of Dominic and Steve in the ''Tabletopgame/MagicTheGathering'' webcomic ''Webcomic/UGMadness''. As the author himself says, the best thing about Steve is that "he is far too intent on becoming your friend to ever get angry with you. You can even [[http://www.ugmadness.net/index.php?date=2005-10-03 smash his car with a hatchet]]- it's cool."
* Pretty much the entire cast of the ''Webcomic/CollegeRoomiesFromHell'' belong to this trope, but Mike and Dave above all others.
** Debatable since many of the characters actually hate each other and have tried to kill each other almost as often as they've aided each other, and [[AFriendInNeed when one of them is in trouble]], it often takes some convincing before another one will help, and he or she might not be too pleased about helping.
* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfWiglafAndMordred'': Wiglaf and Mordred started out as [[http://liliy.net/wam/2005/12/03/originality/ type one]] and later morphed into [[http://liliy.net/wam/2009/02/27/that-didnt-last-long-his-hair/ type two]] as the characters began to show their true personalities.
* ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'' has a four-way version: the entire main cast is horrifically abusive to each other (verbally ''and'' physically), but they're all close friends. One of the more noticeable examples of this is when [[http://exterminatusnow.co.uk/2007-11-17/comic/black-and-white/the-end-of-an-era/ Lothar actually goes out of his way to save Harry, Syrus, and Rogue]], despite repeated claims that he only keeps them around to be meat shields.
** Especially [[http://exterminatusnow.co.uk/2011-05-16/comic/the-cesspool/man-feelings/ Lothar and Rogue]].
* Doc Worth and Lamont in ''Webcomic/HannaIsNotABoysName'' are [[http://vert-is-ninja.deviantart.com/art/Sorta-Maybe-A-Little-Sorry-159680694 textbook examples]].
** Also, Hanna and Conrad; with Hanna being the nice oblivious one and Conrad as something of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. Or maybe just a {{Jerkass}}.
** It seems that Worth and Conrad have a strange bastard hybrid of both variants: Worth thinks they're type two, and Conrad is grumpily oblivious. [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=149 Worth is "keen on" Conrad]], and [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=626 gets quite shouty about the absence of "Count Fagula"]].
* ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'' has Gabe and Tycho, who constantly share petty insults and at times have been shown to violently murder each other.
** Writing TheRant attached to the comic, Both Mike Krahulik (Gabe) and Jerry Holkins (Tycho) have depicted themselves as a parasite riding on the talent of the other.
* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' Gilgamesh and Tarvek fluctuate somewhere between "best friends" and "hate each other's guts". Agatha ironically predicted they'll ''like'' each other (due to being NotSoDifferent) before discovering they're already acquainted.
-->'''Gil:''' ''[with Tarvek in a choking hold]'' Listen to ''everything'' this duplicitous snake says!
:: Even funnier during the [[{{Synchronization}} Si Vales Valeo]] sequence.
-->'''Tarvek:''' Snitch.\\
'''Gil:''' Sneak.\\
'''Tarvek:''' Libertine!\\
'''Gil:''' Fop!
* ''Webcomic/CtrlAltDel'':
** Rob seems to think that he and Ethan have this in . Ethan just seems to hate him.
** Ethan and Lucas, too. While smiling broadly:
--->'''Ethan:''' Happy Winter-een-mas, ''jackass''.\\
'''Lucas:''' Happy Winter-een-mas, ''whore''.
* Webcomic/CaseyAndAndy room together, and are best friends since high school. They also kill each other on a regular basis. (not ''try to kill'' but ''kill''). On the other hand, they have saved each other from deadly threats.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'':
** Tedd and Susan gradually [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2004-11-04 turn into this]]. He started as a ChivalrousPervert and she as a StrawFeminist, so it was a given. They both are way too smart and a bit too nice to take this too seriously, so... both their [[WimpFight sissy slap-fights]] happened over ''Franchise/StarTrek''.
--->'''Tedd:''' Um, Susan? This isn't any fun if you don't sass-back.
** [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2002-10-18 Susan and Nanase]] are a mild example, they "[[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2010-05-19 didn't really get along, but it worked out well]]" from the start. Again, a StrawFeminist and a girl [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2011-08-03 on]] the [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan quest for True Love]], but capable of kicking a ''lot'' of ass.
* ''Webcomic/OurLittleAdventure'': Rocky and Angelika. They snark and bait each other on a regular basis, but they are obviously very good friends, and have protected each other since before meeting up with Julie and Lenny.
* Dorothy and Elanor in ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'' tend to be antagonistic to each other (once even indirectly causing a broken hip), due to natural prejudices (Dorothy's a rabbit, Elanor's a wolf), disagreements over how to manage Aby's business, and their mutual granddaughter's diet (Dorothy is trying to push a more vegetarian diet on the naturally omnivorous Coney), but they agree that they are each other's best friends, partially because between old age and predation, they don't really have anyone else left to call friends.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'':
** The Trolls are largely a species of {{Jerkass}}es, and their form of friendship is largely being jerks to each other, but they more or less get along. They ultimately grow out of it and into [[Heartwarming/{{Homestuck}} genuine friendship]]...[[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome offscreen]].
** Even among the trolls, Karkat is a standout example. He cares deeply for others, but he's also a perpetually angry jerk, meaning that this kind of friendship is about the only kind he has. {{Lampshaded}} by John when thinking about how he'll greet his friends after a long journey:
--->'''John:''' ...and I'll push Karkat down a flight of friendship stairs!
** The most textbook example for ''Homestuck'' has to be Karkat and Sollux:
'''Sollux''': [[VerbalTic thii2 ii2 2o iimmature, iim ba2iically ju2t laughiing here at how iimmature you are.]]\\
'''Sollux:''' eheheheh you LIITERALLY a2k me that every tiime are you jokiing.
** Dave and Karkat are another particularly good example. They're apparently "bros" now, and Karkat even refers to Dave as his "best friend" at one point, despite the fact that they spend virtually all of their shared screen time insulting each other. And they might possibly be [[HoYay something more]]...
** Rose's relationships with ''everyone'' tend to be based on a mixture of friendly sarcasm, biting sarcasm, semi-gentle mockery, and armchair psychology.
** And then there's ''Webcomic/SweetBroAndHellaJeff''...
* ''Webcomic/OutThere'' is something of a WorldOfSnark, so many of the close friendships therein follow this (Miriam and Sherry, Sherry and Steven, Araceli and Rod, James and Chuck), or think they do (Miriam and James, Sherry and Clayton, Miriam and Clayton). The schizophrenic nature of these relationships is well represented [[http://outthere.keenspot.com/d/20100222.html here]]; Miriam and Sherry's volatile friendship borders on a parody of this trope at times; when they're not sniping at each other, they're often ''caressing'' each other.
* Anthem and Gilgam in ''Webcomic/TheWaterPhoenixKing'' -- they're really the only two people who can, or would ''dare,'' to tease each other, until recently. Seriously, he's the ReallySevenHundredYearsOld, battle-scarred ProudScholarRaceGuy who helped defeat her people's side in the war, and she's the AxCrazy DarkMagicalGirl who goes [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity Dark Willow]] at the drop of a hat, and they both know all this about each other almost from the start ''and don't care.'' A more perversely-beautiful friendship you could hardly imagine.
* In ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'', Bun-Bun and Kiki. Bun-Bun shows that [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther he actually does like Kiki]] in [[http://sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/980909 this]] strip.
* Bear and Tiger certainly have this in [[http://bearandtiger.com/ Bear and Tiger]] where it's taken to the logical extreme that they're both still friends even though they poop in each other's hats... [[http://www.bearandtiger.com/?p=701 No really]].
* ''Comicbook/BuckGodotZapGunForHire'':
** Buck and Whree.
--->'''[[http://www.airshipentertainment.com/buckcomic.php?date=20090110 Ambassador Whree]]:''' I... have never found a sentient I enjoy ''hating'' more than I hate you.
** This works on the scale of species: Klegdixals seems to be easily irritated (it takes a lot to make one say "I... I feel positively ''un''-unhappy!") and have {{jerkass}} reputation in turn. Humans happily [[http://www.airshipentertainment.com/buckcomic.php?date=20080207 drive them mad]] or blackmail, given a chance.
---> I predict that a Klegdixal/Humanity partnership will produce a ''unique'' dynamic, one that to outsiders will appear quite doomed, but...
* ''Webcomic/VGCats'': Aeris and Leo, the main characters, do stuff to annoy the hell out of each other. It even got to the point where, in one strip, [[spoiler:Aeris went back in time to abort an unborn Leo out of existence]]. But all said and done, there are moments when they show they actually do care for each other--"[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming The Perfect Gift]]" being ''the'' main example.
* Though [[CasanovaWannabe Duster]] and [[KnightInSourArmor Cliff]] from ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'' are [[http://www.sdamned.com/2010/01/01272010/ great allies]], they still [[http://www.sdamned.com/2011/02/02192011/ show it]] in [[http://www.sdamned.com/2008/08/08092008/ odd ways.]]
* The [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/crew/ cast page]] of ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'' paints CK and Socks' relationship as such, though with socks being an IntelligibleUnintelligible, [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2009/11/29/energize-sounds-better-than-peekaboo/ it's kind of hard to tell on his end]]. CK and Nin Wah [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2012/11/04/plan-a/ are also shaping up to become this]].
* ''Webcomic/AlfdisAndGunnora'' has Gunnora and Fulla, who swear at and tease each other.
* In ''ComicStrip/{{Nodwick}}'', this dynamic is clear between [[BrainsAndBrawn Yeagar and Arthax]], who consider each other equals but take every opportunity to snipe at the other for being (respectively) DumbMuscle and a MadScientist. Arthax and Nodwick exhibit this dynamic as well, as Arthax seems to respect Nodwick's common sense even though he constantly abuses him. Yeagar and Nodwick are closer to mutual SitcomArchNemesis status: Yeagar is usually the first to go for the "mistreat the henchman" solution, while Nodwick frequently snarks at, belittles and annoys Yeagar with verbal barbs. Although they probably hang out more than any other combination of the group, ComedicSociopathy usually rules the day between them.
* Andrew and Marie-Ange, in addition to being PlatonicLifePartners, are an example of this in ''Webcomic/AutumnBay'', constantly teasing and picking on each other.
* ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' has a plethora of examples. First of all, Koon Aguero Agnis and Rak Wraithraiser are a blue-haired noble and a giant humanoid Alligator respectively, and they do not get along from the very start, yet still maintain a bond of trust and rigid understanding after their team is dissolved. Ronin Hatsu and Lizard Girl Anak are also pretty close despite fighting a lot. Then there is Evan/Yuri. He gets thrown off cliffs a lot. And finally, there are Androssi and Anak who play this out like an Ur-example.
* Sara and Jane of ''Webcomic/NobodyScores'' (dis)function like this. They're constantly snarking at or pranking each other but they've been friends since high school and are now roommates. The [[ComedicSociopathy horrors inflicted]] on Beans are more an afterthought.
* ''Webcomic/{{Nebula}}'': Mars finds Earth to be intrusive, annoying, and far too invested in everyone else's business, and frequently tells her to go away; she [[IJustWantToHaveFriends just wants to have friends]] and keeps at it anyway, refusing to take it personally. Mars ''does'' care about her though, and when he thinks things are getting outright dangerous he goes to her first to try and warn her before anyone else.
* In ''Webcomic/CobwebAndStripes'', this is the relationship between Betelgeuse and Jacques. It doesn't seem, the way they interact in their earliest scenes together, like they particularly like one another. But as in the [[WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}} cartoon]], Jacques and his wife Ginger are Betelgeuse's only real friends in the Neitherworld and he's actually rather (quietly) fond of them.
* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Lalli towards Emil, especially after their OddFriendship stops running on a platonic version of LanguageOfLove and they can speak to each other. Both Emil and Lalli have some form of NoSocialSkills, but Lalli's are so bad that the average person's BrutalHonesty and InnocentlyInsensitive are normal speech to him. Meanwhile, Emil is in the middle of ironing the "jerk" out of his childhood RichJerk attitude and the "rich" part has lead him to having a sheltered childhood, the combination of the two regularly resulting in behavior that annoys the EnragedByIdiocy Lalli. This results in Lalli regularly being quite vitriolic towards Emil, who in turn has a surprisingly high tolerance towards it.
