Added DiffLines:

* ''WebVideo/{{Dad}}'' is hateful of Neighbor, stating in a few videos how he wants to be better than him in some way just to rub it in his face, and then being openly sarcastic and rude to Neighbor when they run into him at Restaurant. Neighbor himself comes off as a decent person...if not for his implied relationship with Cheryl.


* In ''Manga/KarakaiJouzuNoTakagiSan'', the protagonist Nishikata is constantly teased by his cute classmate (the Takagi-san from the title) and more often than not winds up blushing like mad or is otherwise outsmarted. He tries to get his own back, but whatever plan he comes up with either has a glaring flaw he fails to notice until it's too late, or Takagi-san turns it against him. Takagi-san genuinely likes him, but she just enjoys watching his over-the-top reactions. (Yes, you will probably die of diabetes if you read this manga.)

** After she undergoes her HeelFaceTurn, Trixie ends up acting as one of these to Twilight, spending most of their mutual screentime bothering her without ever crossing into genuine villainy. [[spoiler:Discord]], another former antagonist, becomes this for her after the Season 6 finale.

* On ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', Rigby feels this way about his brother Don purely because Don has had more success than him and is taller (despite actually being younger than Rigby). This is one sided - Don loves Rigby and wants to spend time with him, and shows absolutely no signs of sibling rivalry with him.

Rigby eventually comes to realize this and tones down his aggression.


* Wrestling/{{ECW}} and the Wrestling/WorldWrestlingFederation. On screen, they were antagonistic to one another. Off screen, they actually worked together against main rival Wrestling/{{WCW}}. This was also true of ECW and Wrestling/SmokeyMountainWrestling but it lacked a national TV deal so no one remembers it.

* On ''Series/FullHouse'', once Michelle takes over the LittleMissSnarker title from Stephanie, Stephanie redirects her snide remarks towards [[DropInCharacter Kimmy]], who only occasionally fires insults back due to her relative lack of wit. In fact, of all of the main cast who ever makes fun of Kimmy, Stephanie does it the most often -- sometimes multiple times in a single episode. By the time of ''Series/FullerHouse'' though, Stephanie and Kimmie become more like VitrolicBestBuds.

* The DS remakes of ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' portray Gym Leaders Janine and Falkner (Who had zero interaction in the originals) as this with a subtle hint of VitriolicBestBuds. They argue about [[MyDadCanBeatUpYourDad whose father is considered as the better trainer]], while a few lines imply that they hang out together often.

* Klavier Gavin to ''VisualNovel/ApolloJustice'' and detective Ema Skye, which is particularly strange as despite being a Prosecuting Attorney (an antagonistic role from the protagonist's point of view), he's very much a good guy, which makes him fall squarely into this trope.

** [[{{Trickster}} Romania]] and [[NinjaMaid Hungary]]. As soon as they're in the vicinity of one another, the atmosphere gets tense, and [[DeathGlare Death Glares]] come out. Hungary also names her dogs after him, and locks him out of the ''Manga/HetaliaHetaween2013'' party.
