** atman and the Punisher occasionally cross over. It ends in Batman beating the crap out of Frank (in one case, for almost shooting the Joker, who realized Frank was very much about to kill him, unlike Batsy).

* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' and Knuckles the Echidna started off as this in the [[Comicbook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog archie comics]]. Every time the two cross paths, they would act hostile towards one another and this ends up in the two fighting each other, usually due to ego. As time goes by, their antagonism towards each other would develop into a FriendlyRivalry.

* [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Rorschach]] is considered a lunatic and subversive by the authorities, and most heroes don't want anything to do with him. Laurie Juspeczyk, specifically, can't stand him at all.

The Comedian played this role in the flashbacks, due to starting out as an excessively violent AntiHero and Grade-A {{Jerkass}} in the early days and only getting worse with age, and the aforementioned Rorschach is the only one of his former teammates to attend his funeral.


* In ''Manga/Shiki'', Tatsumi and Chizuru Kirishiki, are on the same side and share the same goals, but they do not get along. While they do not openly quarrel often, Tatsumi views Chizuru's behavior as reckless and problematic, and does not understand why Sunako allows her to get away with as much as she does. Chizuru, in turn, is annoyed by Tatsumi for his prudence. In this example, though, Chizuru herself might be the problem, as Yoshie harbors the same sentiments as Tatsumi.

** The way Frank Miller, and then John Byrne, conceived the Batman/Superman relationship played this trope straight, with Frank Miller noting that their ideologies are completely different and concluding that 'These two people do NOT like each other'. Of course, Miller's storyw as set in an alternate universe, and Byrne's only showed they're first meeting. Subsequent writers showed that Batman very quickly developed a friendship with Superman.

* This was the relationship of Obito Uchiha and Kakashi Hatake in the anime and manga ''Manga/NarutoShippuden'' when they were younger. They constantly bickered during missions and had conflicting views on what it meant to be shinobi. They did end up getting along before Obito's supposed death, but there were few situations in which they did so prior to this; with the former directly stating the two were like "oil and water" and their teacher, Minato Namikaze, urging that they must set aside their differences and act as teammates if they ever wanted to become an effective ninja unit.

* One of the most famous examples would be from the Franchise/XMen, with Cyclops and Wolverine. Initially, it stemmed from Cyclops being a typical hero and leader while Wolverine was more of an anti-hero and has a disdain for authority. Later, Logan's love for Scott's wife Jean Grey would also play a role. After she died, aside from a few scuffles, the two actually got along ''better'', if anything, and they repeatedly stated their respect for the other. Once mutants were close to extinction and Cyclops became the de facto leader of the mutant race, they almost mostly got along. This changed with ''Schism'', when Wolverine [[ConflictBall suddenly developed a thing against children learning to fight]], despite this being a thing since the X-Men's inception and Wolverine himself making a tradition of taking a teenage sidekick once a generation. The two got into a big fight that split the X-Men down the middle, Cyclops became a wanted fugitive shortly after. The two briefly had a heart-to-heart before Logan died. By the time Logan came back, Cyclops had died.

* In ''Manga/NakaNoHitoGenomeJikkyouchuu'', Kudo and Oshigiri clashed since the start of the DeadlyGame, as Oshigiri found Kudo immature, Kudo got pissed off at the criticism, and away they went. They wouldn't wish actual danger on each other, but don't ever expect them to be in close quarters without sniping at each other.

* In the anime and manga ''Manga/ElfenLied'', Lucy and Nana - both diclonius - despised one another, based on differences in their views toward humans, their goals in general, and a particularly violent encounter in which the latter was dismembered and almost killed by the former. Their relationship does improve slightly by the time they share the same living space, but they never completely set aside their differences.
