I know the characters involved, and this trope is only one fanon version of their relationship. That is, it's not an interpretation on how they interact in canon, but a relationship built up on fanon. A more popular version is that they're more akin to rivals (although not entirely equal rivals at that).
I wouldn't guess the trope even knowing who they are.
